W5H: An Ode To Jenny Lewis

Okay, I know I do this every other week (essentially), but I’m going to ramble on about the significance of Last.fm once again. In my last “Ode To” post, I distilled the magic that is the famed music-scrobbling website’s ~suggested artists~ feature – the fateful WWW URL that led me to my new/old favourite man-band, Future Islands.

However, to anyone who has ever asked me who my [absolute] favourite artist is, you’ll know that Jenny Lewis is my GURL. Even during bouts of uncertainty (read: John Mayer + Taylor Swift phases – questionable, but I’m not sorry), Jenny Lewis’ angelic voice persevered – acting as the light to my very confused mUsIcAl TuNnEl. The evidence is still withstanding, too: as even through a 3 year hiatus from recording my listening habits on a public platform, it’s still very apparent that Rilo Kiley is, and will forever be, at the top of my charts.

If you’ve yet to get acquainted with this lucious-haired music goddess, then you should probably GTFO!!! Just jk – it’s never too late to fall in love, (and also, I ~oh-so-badly~ want to selfishly take the time to rave about why I love her in non-creepy/kind of creepy ways). read more…

How To: Conquer Your Resting B!tch Face Syndrome

Has someone ever come up to you to ask if you’re okay even though you were feeling perfectly fine? Or have you ever caught someone glaring at you after you catch yourself zoning off on the bus? My dear friends, you may have the resting b!tch face syndrome. We know – you were born this way. You’ve always had that slightly displeased look on your face regardless of how you actually feel inside. It’s the unfortunate combination of your furrowed brows, almond-shaped eyes, and the south-bound corners of your lips — and yes, I’ve studied my own reflection quite a bit.

A lot of times, the resting b!tch face can come to your rescue and protect you from unsolicited conversations from stranger dangers. But more often than not, b!tch face syndrome causes a lot of assumptions being made about you that you’re constantly having to dispute. We know we can’t please everyone, but sometimes it’s nice to reflect the super kind spirit that you are on your face. Here are some priceless tips on conquering your resting b!tch face. Even if it’s just for a few moments…before you have to rest again. read more…

Throwback: 2007

Seeing as I’m on the cusp of entering “real world” adulthood, fondly revisiting memories of my life circa 2007 is pretty much mandatory. Aside from the awkward irrelevancies
that came with being 15-ish, 2007 will forever be held high on a pedestal and addressed
as The Best Collection of 365 Days Ever. read more…

The Coolest Roommates of All Time

When we found out that Georgia May Jagger and Cara Delevingne were soon-to-be roomies, first we were like “WHAT?” and then we spent about two weeks trying to comprehend the level of cool that would exist in that apartment. I guess if you’re incredibly famous and good-looking, it’s only natural to want to live with another incredibly famous and good-looking being. Georgia and Cara aren’t the first ridiculous pair to shack up together, obviously, but did you know about all of these other awesome roommates of yesteryear? read more…

How To Be: The Best Kind Of Tomboy

Urban Dictionary’s definition of a “tomboy” is a girl who behaves like a boy and would rather play soccer than go shopping. Hmm… I can assure you that the girls on this list do love to shop but also happen to have don’t-mess-with-me, tomboy status — hello female liberation, people. Every girl goes through a tomboy stage at least once in her lifetime, and if you haven’t you will after reading this post and realizing how ridiculously ~cool~ you could look. read more…

HEADLINES: Sasha Pivovarove Make Clothes for Gap, Stella McCartney Makes Clothes for the Olympics, and Keds Make Clothes (Period).

Sasha Pivovarove is a supermodel, legitimate painter, actress & now Gap lingerie designer. Some people are just over-achievers. (Fashionista)

Not sure where this Top 10 list originated from; but the important thing is I found it & I am sharing it with you! Check out Miss Piggy’s Top 10 Fashion Tips – they will make you snort. (Shine)

95 years after the brand was first conceived, Keds is launching a clothing line exclusively available at Opening Ceremony. Why is this necessary? This sneak peek is just … meh. You’ve lasted 95 years in the fashion industry – so I’m thinking if it ain’t broke? (Fabsugar)

Ugh. A licensed replica of the Carolina Herrera wedding gown worn by Kristen Stewart in Twilight’s Breaking Dawn is in production and is set to retail for $799. The thought of Twilight-themed weddings is making me gag. (Too Fab)

Stella McCartney is the creative director for Britain’s 2012 Summer Olympic Team? Really? Doesn’t this seem a little excessive? Oh well, let them try and compete with the popularity of Vancouver’s Olympics gear. Red Mitten Nation! HA, good luck! (The Cut)

Well you can file this under – “WTF … Useless Designer Things” Only Hermes would be audacious enough to sell a cup cozy for $200. (The Purse Blog)

This Miu Miu ad featuring the adorable Hailee Steinfeld has been pulled in theUK because it has been deems “irresponsible” for depicting a child sitting on train tracks. Yeah, I don’t really know how to respond to this. (Telegraph)

HEADLINES: Kelly Gives Beyonce a Bathtub, Katie Has Cankles, and Kristen is Greasy (as usual).

The love fest continues in Cabo; their second trip this month. Must be freaking nice being a professional girlfriend who’s only responsibility is looking hot. George seems different with this one – he’s letting Stacey enjoy the spotlight and he’s less strict about the PDA. I still miss Elisabetta though. (PopSugar)

Ugh. When Katie Holmes’s style looks busted; 9 times out of 10 she designed the outfit herself. Surprise, surprise Katie made this piece of crap. Wow, it’s terrible. And those shoes? WHY? She straight up looks like she has cankles! (Lainey Gossip)

Predictable; greasy hair and angst-y facial expressions fill the pages of Kristen Stewart’s Vogue Italia spread. I didn’t think it was particularly thrilling. Plus, I really hate the hair and the cigarette. (The Gloss)

Probably the most EXTRA gift I’ve ever seen. A big tub is a great gift for a pregnant woman. But pink Swarovski crystals? See; it’s EXTRA! Does this mean it’s a girl??? I didn’t think that was Beyonce’s style. But then again the girl does help her mama design House of Dereon. (ABC)

Think twirling your hair while batting your eyelashes makes you cute and irresistible? Well it can actually make you bald! Yikes! (Stylelist)

Rachel Zoe runs a tight ship! Apparently she won’t let her client Jennifer Garner wear maternity clothes. But this stupid sateen number was A-OK? I question Zoe sometimes. (In Style)

According to Marc Jacob’s IMBD page, Marc will make his film debut alongside Jason Bateman and Alexander Skarsgard in a film called Disconnected. Are you excited to see him on the big screen? I am unsure. I fear oversaturation (Fashionista)
