1. SJP is coming back to TV – this time in a show based on the book, Busted, A Tale of Corruption and Betrayal in the City of Brotherly Love. Wonder if this role will let her stay true to her style-icon ways?
2. In an article about Kesha’s upcoming Teen Vogue cover, Refinery 29 asks, “Are freckles making a comeback?” Call me old-fashioned, but I wouldn’t consider flaunting freckles a trend. Either you got ’em, or you don’t! Continue Reading
Dots and tribal and lemons, oh my! I decided to kick off summer in a cheery, pattern-popping way by toying around with several of the patterned pieces taking up residence in my closet. And with this pattern play, I focused on mixing neutral textural patterns with bolder statement patterns (see below for more on mixing patterns) to create a subtle patterned look.
1. Liar liar pants on fire to all you fashion girls out there. Yesterday, Lauren Fisher for Harper’s Bazaar divulged the 10 Lies Fashion Girls Tell in her short listicle. Spoiler: If I tell you I’m on my way, realistically it really means I just got out of the shower. What’s a little white lie?
2. When craving something fresh, I look no further than a plain and simple cucumber — cucumber slices, cucumber salad — any form of cucumber will work for me. This affinity also carries through to my cocktail preferences as cucumber offers a great alternative to the many sweet and sugary drinks out there. Check out this cucumber-honeydew blender and this green machine on the rocks. Continue Reading
1. Ever #gocommando…at the gym that is? The folks at Dear Kate engineered a new type of yoga pant that is designed to let you workout sans skivvies, and Refinery 29 took at crack at it (haha).
2. As a girl with sometimes wavy, always frizzy hair, Bumble and bumble’s Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil is my little-goes-a-long-way lifesaver. Work one, maybe two, pump(s) through the body of your hair, add a little dab to your ends, and you’ll see a world of difference. Invisible Oil gets The Glamour Less seal of approval. Continue Reading
1. I’m not very fond of the fact that pre-fall lines hit the racks just when I’m getting into the swing of summer. It makes me feel like my swimsuit-wearing days are slipping away faster than I can say “cannonball!” That being said, Zara really hit it out of the park with their new outerwear options. I’m loving these poppy red and canary yellow crewneck coats and this combined faux leather blazer.
2. Need a vacation? Of course you do. This Fast Company article spells out how taking time away from the office can actually help you improve at your work. Two tickets to Cabo, please!
3. I recently stumbled upon Nichole Ciotti’s lifestyle blog, Vanilla Extract. Her posts range from OOTD-style photos to beauty tips for the lazy girl – and have just the right amount of spunk (not to mention that her hair is just fantastic). Definitely a blog worth checking out.
4. Rihanna’s CFDA Awards bare-all number is all anyone can talk about. But not only can you see every inch of her body in the Adam Selman dress, you can also see her twerk in it. And apparently this is news, folks.
5. And now for the moment everyone’s been waiting for…season 2 of Orange is the New Black premieres on Netflix today! If you need a season 1 refresher before starting your OITNB binge, Refinery 29 has a quick eight-slide course. Happy watching (please no spoilers)!
