Street Style Lookbook: June Prep


Hey y’alls. It’s almost June – and you know what that means! Park hangs! Sunshine! Casual tree-leaning! Sunglasses! Smiles! Friendship! Etc etc!

Even if the weather has yet to make up it’s mind (AKA quit playing games with my heart!), that doesn’t mean that we can’t put our best potentially-sandaled foot forward and enjoy the beginning of what should be a very beautiful summer. read more…

Radiant Orchid ~Beauty Inspiration~

New year, new colour.

Pantone (A.K.A. the ruler of all things colourful) has decided that 2014 is going to be “Radiant Orchid”. Though the name kind of makes me cringe (after all, it sounds like title of a poem I probably read in grade 2!!!), the colour is kind of amazing in that I’m-not-quite-sure-if-it’s-purple-y-pink-or-pink-y-purple. Either way, the colour of this year has billions of ideas to offer, and in the realm of beauty, here are a few of the best! read more…

Headlines: Taylor is SO Hard, R.E.M. is Crazy, and Kate Moss’s Tramp Stamp Cost a Milli.

So R.E.M., Lindsay Lohan, and James Franco made a “film.” Because that makes sense. read more…

Glam Vs. Grunge: A 90s Fashion Faceoff

Ah, the ‘90s – a decade that gladly reined a quirky childhood, steamy celeb couples, Spice World, incredible music (“incredible” being a modest adjective) and some serious fashion that we’ll burst at the seams with excitement for any chance to celebrate.

 

In the wake of a nineties revival on the Spring 2013 runways, we eagerly present to you a faceoff, if you will, as old as sexuality itself: the ever-endured struggle between glam and grunge, supermodels and Seattle. read more…

HEADLINES: Gwyneth Rocks a Cape, Emma Stone is Adorable, and Jim Rash is GOD!

We will disagree about the Oscars all day; it’s inevitable. But one thing is for certain – Jim Rash is a God! I’ll wait while you watch the BEST part of the entire 3+ hour show … See, hilarious right? And on a night where Billy Crystal was kissing bum left, right and centre, it was refreshing comic relief. Jolie addicts – are we fighting already? (PopSugar)

The trailer is here. Movie: The Movie by Jimmy Kimmel starring … well, everyone! So meta it’s ridiculous. (People)

Bringing your slumdog to the Vanity Fair after party is becoming a trend. See: Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer circa 2009. (Daily Mail)

And the 2nd BEST moment of last night belongs to Emma Stone. This is how you do funny as a presenter! I’m looking at you Cameron Diaz and J.Lo! (BuzzFeed)

Did Georgina Chapman help her hubby last night by tricking Stacey Keibler into wearing this awful gold lame atrocity? I buy it. (Lainey Gossip)

I am SO curious as to what they talk about. Do they just brush off the A-Rod thing? Or do they bond over his douchiness and their joy of being rid of it? P.S. Whenever a dress features that nude fabric like on Kate’s dress, it immediately becomes a figure skating outfit to me, no? (The Sun)

Loved the Tom Ford cape. Hated the hair. REALLY hated that she labelled this look her, “Jackie O moment.” Gwyneth’s audacity continues to shock me … although I don’t know why. (FabSugar)

This is a double fail – for me – for my favourite fake friends. I hate Katie’s hair. And it is getting harder and harder for me to look at Posh. I bet you any money that’s a normal person belt she’s got looped around her waist twice. Gross. (Access Hollywood)

HEADLINES: Stacey’s Style is Still Shit, Vogue Goes Naked for November, and Jenna Lyons Dumps Her Man for a Lady.

So you missed Tom Ford’s documentary on the Oprah Winfrey Network … well, we can’t say we blame you. We can’t stand the ‘listen to your inner voice’ crap either. But if you are like us you are probably still intrigued by the supposed exclusive access Opes was given into the designer’s private life. No worry, The Fashion Spot is here to save the day! (The Fashion Spot)

Luella Bartley, handbag designer, gave quite the interview to The Observer recently; stating, “English women are feminists without thinking about it.” Her reasoning? Because they are more concerned with looking cool than sexy. But don’t get all huffy yet; she goes on to say that this does not apply to all English girls while simultaneously taking a stab at Cheryl Cole. Oooo sassy! (VogueUK)

If you didn’t already know – you heard it here first! Next month is officially Naked November. Okay, well … not OFFICIALLY but judging from these Vogue covers we’re not that far off! (Fashionista)

Man, these Middletons and their sensible style! Pippa was spotted out and about in an eye-catching red jacket from Zara. I like that they don’t feel the need to only wear couture. I give them a lot of flack but they are quite humble, aren’t they? (In Style)

It seems that Jenna Lyons and Vincent Mazeau are headed for divorce. Yes, it’s sad BUT it gets better. Apparently word is getting around that Jenna has moved on with … another woman! Who is said to also works in fashion. Please let this be the one time Page Six is right! (Fashionologie)

That’s just like people, eh? You give them a compliment and then they make you regret it instantly! Stacey Kiebler’s red carpet marathon continued last night, as did her tendency to look like shit. Those ruffles – yuck! George would you just take care of this already! Conversely Carey Mulligan looked stunning! (Popsugar)

Hilary Duff did something of note – for a change. The sometimes actress/singer sported a side braid recently; incorporating strands of leather throughout the ‘do. And were digging it! Good work, now go work on that career because we are starting to forget who you are! (Us Weekly)
