Hey Evan Peters, I’ve Got A Crush On U

Do YOU remember The Days? Phil of the Future? Sleepover? Never Back Down? The common denominator in this list, aside from being mediocre (sorry), is the adorable Evan Peters. He’s well known for his reoccurring role in the anthology series, American Horror Story, where throughout the seasons he’s played: a psychopathic (yet weirdly attractive) ghost, a wrongly accused serial killer, and a Frankenstein-esque frat boy. If you STILL haven’t heard of him, get on Google right now and prepare to ~swoon~. Here are a few reasons why I <3 him and you should too… read more…

Why Trench Coats Rule \m/

trenchcover

With the recent rainy day blues, I have sought out the only thing that has lightened my mood, the ultimate trench coat!!!!! Taking nods from Disney Recess’ Hustler Kid, to a straight up flasher, I decided to purchase the universally loved jacket. They can be perfect for looking like a mysteriously chic British socialite a la Alexa Chung, or a 1950s movie heroine like Hepburn. They are also quite practical when it comes to getting caught in the rain (and not in the cute way) which I guess is also important. Here are some varieties of the ultimate season-transitioning anorak ~*~ read more…

Strange Man Buns That Intrigue

Anyone who knows me, knows I know my man buns. I’m kind of particular when it comes to the type of bun a man is sporting. However, I’m easily won over. Sure a perfect, low, artist’s man bun is basically a work of art, but the less than perfect buns out there also deserve a little lovin’. A curiously coiffed man bun inspires intrigue and fills us with wonder, so let’s take our hats off (or rather, their hats off), and applaud the weird man bun and the efforts made by ther proprietors. read more…

5 Summer Trends That Make U Wanna Work On Ur Fitness

With the Solstice behind us (and back to school on the horizon), the time to work on our fitness is nearly running out. Since summer comes with iced beverages, iced treats, an overwhelming urge to play hooky, and outfits that bare a little more than we’re used to the rest of the year, we’ve gotta maintain some sort of routine so we look and feel great doing all of the aforementioned.

Throughout the winter months we fashun gurlz pile on the layers, the bulky sweaters, and boxy tees - we’re much more covered up and leave quite a bit to the imagination. However this season there are some more revealing fashion trends that can’t be ignored. With more skin and body parts being put on display with these summer pieces, one is given all the more motivation to up their fitness game. Though we wholeheartedly agree that all shapes and sizes are beautiful, and that you can wear whatever makes you happy, it never hurts to work on one’s fitness (except for the day after, of course). read more…

Flower Beards: A Softer Side To Masculinity

The imagery the word beard conjures is rough, coarse, and rugged. But what happens when you stick flowers into that beard? You have a visually appealing concept that challenges current notions of masculinity – it is the softer side – filled with roses, daisies, leaves, and vines (literally). Who would have thought that facial hair and flowers would fit so seamlessly? Well, these artists did: read more…

Street Style Lookbook: Don’t Stress – Distress!

We’re all guilty of over-thinking: both in terms of life and in terms of sartorial decisions. And while I realize this probably isn’t the most insightful way to end off our/your Friday, I’d like to provide you with some words of pseudo-wisdom so you go into the weekend with a clear mind. First of all – take it easy. Eat an ice cream cone. ReLaX. Chill. And when you find yourself getting restless (because too much chilling), distress your denim – because duh, that’s the obvious thing to do. read more…

Indie Rock Bands Before and After the Machine

Although I am embarrassed every time I hear someone else say or catch myself pretentiously saying, “I liked them better before…” when it comes to music, I cannot help but stand by my love for the way my favorite indie rock bands looked like before they got “cool”. Don’t get me wrong: I stand by these guy’s new music and probably forever will as a dedicated fan of all of them, but somewhere deep inside I can’t help but want their dorky, sloppy, DOWN-WITH-THE-OPPRESSOR!! pre-Hollywood looks. The dirty vintage tees, low-key Converse and just rolled out of bed hair-dos make me swoon and I want it all back! Even if they all came from money and the shabby look was all a sham… read more…
