Favorites of 2013

Favorite Style Icon: Alexa Chung

This should really come as no surprise. Since Alexa Chung came into my life, I have always been a fan of her outfit choices. I noticed last year, I selected Taylor Swift, but really – Alexa blew her and everyone else out of the water in 2013. With her new book that we are dying to read and collections of hers popping up all over the place, we are looking forward to what she’ll be bringing to the table in 2014.

Runner up: Kiernan Shipka

Seth Cohen and Blair Waldorf Are Engaged

In. Real. Life.

So Leighton Meester is pretty much the luckiest girl ever because let’s be real – Adam Brody is the best catch and Rachel Bilson is not really winning with Hayden Christenson. Two of my favorite characters from television series are engaged to be married and I’m slightly miffed, but also moreso thrilled for the two of them. I can already imagine that the wedding is going to be nothing short of amazing. The two have been dating for less than a year. I actually heard the rumors about this swirling last night, but it has now been confirmed.

The O.C. – The 10th Anniversary

In the midst on some craziness last week, we completely forgot all about celebrating the 10 year anniversary of The O.C. Not only did the television series provide a somewhat accurate representation of what it’s like to live in Orange County (kind of,) but they also paved the way for what would become some of the best soundtracks a television series could offer. The cast was full of beautiful people each with characters that were well-developed and complex throughout the season. Marissa Cooper, there is no one like you on TV and there never will be! Ryan Atwood was the bad boy turned sensitive bro and we loved every second of it. And last, but not least – Seth and Summer. There is no one more perfect for each other than these two. We laughed, cried, and were terrified for our lives especially during that weird “Oliver” period. The show taught us some incredible lessons – lessons at 13 that I am still carrying on in life today. I wouldn’t be able to tell you them right now, but we’ll save that for the 20th anniversary. So on this Wednesday – Hump Day – we are celebrating the anniversary. I’ve included the entire first episode above and we all know how great this pilot was so take 44 minutes out of your day, relax, and enjoy the show. Unfortunately, Mischa Barton spoke out about rumors of a reunion earlier this week and her thoughts that it should not happen. Really? It might do your career some good Mischa. Regardless, the show will live on and we’ll love it forever.

Welcome to the O.C. bitch.

And because we want this to come around full circle… my favorite clip from the last episode. Spoiler alert. What have you been doing with your time if you haven’t seen this by now?

Yow Yow’s Favorite New Couple

Just in time for Valentine’s Day!!!

Would you ever believe that The OC’s Seth Cohen and Gossip Girl’s Blair Waldorf would get together? Of course not, but now that it has happened, it is pretty much the best thing ever. Adam Brody is the ultimate dreamboat and Leighton Meester is just so darling that there’s no way this wouldn’t work out. Please get married now. I know I said I would never be happy if Adam Brody got together with anyone that wasn’t Rachel Bilson, but I am retracting that statement.

Adam Brody – Age 32 And Still The Best Looking Nerd Ever

I can’t exactly explain why Adam Brody is my dream crush. I mean I could try to explain, but I’m not sure if it would make sense to anyone. Adam Brody as Seth Cohen was a freakin’ dreamboat. He loved Death Cab For Cutie. Hello – Death Cab For Cutie is like the anthem band for any Seattle resident. Seth Cohen was all into his comic books. I knew my X-Men characters. His hobbies included skateboarding, boating, and being stealth. I’m not into any one of those things, but I can learn to appreciate it.

If Adam Brody would reprise his role as Seth Cohen in his own series, I would watch it. It has been five years, but his appeal has not faltered one bit.

The actor was recently featured in this spread for GQ and he looks damn good. Just sayin’…

Jennifer’s Body

Adam Brody’s performance as the front man of a band called “Low Shoulder” in this film was absolutely ridiculous and very unrealistic. It was almost enough to make me write him off for good, but then I remembered that this movie received poor reviews and that normalcy will return tomorrow morning at 10AM when I get to see him as Seth Cohen again.

Happy Birthday!

Happy 32nd Birthday to the biggest dreamboat of them all, Adam Brody!

Age ain’t nothing, but a number when it comes to Adam Brody. When I watched him The Romantics the other night, it was sort of like watching a grown up Seth Cohen.

Review: The Romantics

pic cred: InStyle

While perusing Netflix today, I came across a new film called The Romantics (2010) now available for instant watching. I like romantic comedies. The story revolved around a group of close friends from college reuniting for a wedding between Anna Paquin and Josh Duhamel, but then it occurred to me that this wasn’t the first time I had heard of this film. In June 2010, the cast of The Romantics did a photo shoot for J. Crew and I had even made a post about it. Those facts about the movie, alone, are all great, but I think the main reason why I was attracted to watching this film today was because of Adam Brody. The cast is a pretty intriguing one featuring the ones I’ve already mentioned, Katie Holmes, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron, Candice Bergen, Elijah Wood and a couple that I have never recognized before. The film centers on a complicated love triangle between Anna, Josh and Katie, but I was more fixated on the dynamic characters that Malin and Adam portrayed. They were both married or engaged to people in the group of friends that didn’t make any sense to me.

It’s an interesting film and I’m still trying to find closure on it, but I won’t press on it to much because it was the only movie I watched today to pass some time.

Nerd Herd

On the season finale of The Glee Project, my favorite contestant Cameron returned for the final episode. While I was extremely happy that Damien took home the win, I don’t think I paid that much attention to him as much as I focused on the scenes Cameron was actually in. Bree and I agreed last night that while it is obvious that he is talented, there is definitely something that draws our eye towards him throughout the entire episode. Sure, it’s his voice and the hipster attire, but another part of me thinks that it is because he represents a group of people  that has never been a part of the in crowd: the nerds. There’s no one like him on Glee or even on television right now.

As we all know, I’ve got a pretty sweet spot for the nerds – as do many girls. Can you really find a reason to not like one? I mean, have you ever seen a douchey nerd? And I’m not talking about those pretentious characters in television shows, I mean in real life. They don’t exist! They never cheat, except for that one episode of Saved By the Bell. They are known for being the shy smart types. They’ve got a type of style that isn’t mainstream and they always seem to know what’s going on before everyone else. A blogger’s dream right? Today, I learned from HelloGiggles that there’s actually a distinction between geek, nerd and dork. Who knew, right?

In short:

“Geek- Smart but not awkward
Nerd- Smart and awkward
Dork- Smart in less useful areas, awkward but proud regardless”

Feel free to read the rest of the article here:

What I also recognized today was the similarities between a nerd and a hipster. The same transition process occurs when scenesters become hipster. In this case, you start out being a nerd and develop into a full-grown adult-sized hipster. I’ve decided to highlight some of my favorite nerds in this post, but I’ll let you be the judge as to whether or not they are really as hip as they appear to be.

[Cameron Mitchell - The Glee Project right]

I think I’ve talked enough about Cameron in the text above so I won’t exhaust you anymore. He is basically the proudest nerd I have ever seen promoting the “Nerd Herd” in his YouTube videos, on the television series, and even in his music.

[Michael Cera]

Self-explanatory.

Can These Couples Get Back Together?

[Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron]

The amount of time I spend invested in celebrity gossip is sometimes really embarrassing. I take that back. It’s extremely embarrassing, but at the same time I have no shame. I can’t explain why I have such strong feelings towards why I believe certain celebrity couples should be together, but I do! It stirs up some emotions and signs of hope in me I guess! I’m going to stop writing before I say something that will be used against me by my friends later on though.

A Collection Part 24

Happy summer everyone! This collection post revolves around several themes this time around including youth and celebrating gay pride. Last week, we celebrated pride in Seattle and the rainbow flag is still hanging up in nearly every other business around here! Also – since it’s been three months since the last collection post, the pictures have accumulated so when I originally started working on this, I had close to 200 pictures in one post. Not wanting to freeze your computers from loading all of them, I’ve decided to split it. There are 100 pictures in this post and in another week I will post A Collection Part 25. Hopefully this is easier for all of you to see, but you’ll also be getting another one in a week as opposed to waiting three months again!

Have a happy Fourth of July everyone!

My Favorite Hipsters

Ever since Dov Charney announced the hipster era was “out” several months ago, I became concerned. As a part-time hipster, I guess I don’t really understand how it can go out of style. Being a hipster is not just about the fashion or the music. It is a culture. It is a way of living.

Okay, who are we kidding? While I accept the hipster lifestyle, there’s still something about it that makes me giggle. I actually am amused by the hipster culture. While the rest of the world slash the bros at my school find that it is something to joke about, you’d be surprised at how ahead of the game they are. Hipsters all over have paved the way for various trends that began years ago, but are just now turning mainstream as described in a recent Flavorwire post. When I think of this, I am reminded of the scene from The Devil Wears Prada when Miranda puts Andy in her place by telling her that her retail store sweater was hand picked for her by the people in that room because they made that sweater what it was. I know that that movie has nothing to do with hipsters, but all you need to know is that the hipsters ARE Miranda.

Below are some of my favorite hipsters of our time today:

Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman has been a bad ass ever since she made her acting debut back in 1994 with The Professional. Since then, she has blown us away with her acting abilities and even her rapping skills. She may have portrayed hipster-ish character Sam in Garden State, but we know that she’s a true one at heart. Natalie is a Harvard grad, vegetarian, and an activist!
