Snaps for a Snapshot

Rose Byrne in a Burberry Prorsum Dress

The Burberry “London in Los Angeles” event at Griffith Observatory last night was full of just outstanding looks. Usually, these types of events will only garner one look that I will highlight for “Snaps for a Snapshot,” but in this case, there’s no way we can include just one.

#RevolveWedding

Phoebe Dress – $115

Whenever I learn that I’ve got a wedding to attend, the hunt to find the perfect dress begins immediately. In general, finding a dress for a wedding can already be difficult, but something that I want to try for future weddings is wearing a dress that fits with the overall theme of the wedding or the couple! This summer, I’m attending a reception for my co-worker and she is the ultimate “cool girl.” She has an incredible sense of style and is also just a very easy going person. I once hung out with her and her fiance at a gastropub in Campbell drinking and eating for hours. So when I attend her reception this summer, I want to make sure that what I wear is fitting. Luckily for me, Revolve has handpicked a number of dresses for the upcoming wedding season and here are a few that I’m considering for my dear friend’s big day!

Coachella 2015 Street Style

Every year when I missed Coachella, I would look forward to streaming the sets and catching up on all of the photos via my favorite blogs. Music festival fashion isn’t new, but it hasn’t always existed either. It was probably made more widely known a few years ago and after that fast fashion brands began to design collections so that people could specifically dress for these music festivals. It’s fascinating to me, really. Anyways, like every year, I continue to really enjoy seeing the looks that celebrities and bloggers bring with them to the festival so here are just a few of my favorites!

I realize that this is only for Weekend One, but I don’t know if I’ll have it in me to do a second weekend roundup! Plus – we gotta make room for other content.

Azure Skies Dactyl Tank – $35

While running errands yesterday, I stopped by the mall to make an exchange on a swimsuit piece that I had recently purchased. I had been getting emails from Aritzia that they were having a huge spring sale so I figured while I was at the mall, I might as well pop in. To my disappointment, it seems like the sale was only online, but that didn’t stop me from perusing the rest of the entire store where every piece was originally priced.

I told myself – I’m just browsing. My wallet is staying in my purse and I’m not going to take it out. There’s no harm in looking. This was very similar to the lie that I used to tell my grandparents when I was a kid and they took me to the grocery store and I told them that I only wanted to “look” at the candy aisle, but promised not to ask for anything. They always caved, of course. And naturally, I did too and purchased this adorable pastel colored and polka dotted tank. I almost walked right past it, but it was sort of… twinkling at me on the corner rack. It looked great with my new Uniqlo jeggings that I have been obsessed with and it’s a perfect wear for both spring and summer. I feel like every summer is a summer devoted to stripes, but I’m really looking forward to bringing back the polka dots and hopefully soon I’ll show you all some of my favorite polka dotted picks for the season!

I Like Your Style…Kiernan Shipka

It’s the eve of the season premiere of Mad Men’s last season so it only seemed fitting for us to feature the actress on the show who we find to be a style icon. That is none other than Kiernan Shipka. Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of the show. I’ve watched a few episodes with Kevin and friends always ask me if I want to watch an episode with them, but to be honest I’ve never really gotten into it. I can’t believe how long this television series has been airing though. Fans of the show have really watched Kiernan grow up into the lovely teenager she is today and her style has blossomed so we’re very excited to be showcasing it in this post. Just to throw it back we thought we’d intro this post with a photo of a young Kiernan. She’s only 15, but she’s got so much ahead of her!

2015 Current Trends in Bridal Gowns

Wedding season is almost upon us and with a friend of mine having a low key wedding this summer and another dear friend of mine planning out her wedding that’s happening in April 2016, all I’m thinking about is weddings! It’s actually the perfect time to start thinking about the trends that we’ll be seeing this year so I wanted to share some thoughts on what my favorite trends for bridal gowns are for this upcoming season and they are absolutely swoonworthy.

Some of the best trends in bridal gowns today are ones that completely steer brides away from old traditions. Personally, I find these trends to be very refreshing because it allows couples to throw weddings the way they want and to have something that’s completely unique and their own as opposed to a very long time ago when all weddings kind of looked the same.

Color

There are still many many people that wear white on their wedding day, but some brides are daring to be a little bit different and choosing gowns that are neutral, off-white, and champagne colored as well as any hue in the color family. Some even opt for bright and bold prints that will still let everyone know that they are the bride and that their wedding day is still clearly their day.

The Closet: March 2015

Victoria’s Secret The Strappy Bandeau – $24.50

Victoria’s Secret The Cheeky – $22.50

*Sidenote. I totally already bought this. Since it was my birthday month and all, we got a little loose with the wallet. Actually I can’t even say that because I don’t even own a working wallet right now and should’ve probably made that my first purchase. Happy spring! I’m so excited to welcome new items into my life! Don’t worry – I didn’t buy ALL of these things.

Madewell’s Fall 2015 Lookbook

Madewell releases their lookbook every year around this time – just when I’m getting excited for spring! But hey – I’m never going to turn down the viewing of a lookbook especially not from one of my favorite brands. Madewell does fall very well. The colors, the layering, the accessories. It’s probably one of the few things that even gets me excited for fall! So with that, we’re excited to share what we have to look forward to after spring and then summer of course. You know me, I like to plan ahead.

Lilly Pulitzer for Target Lookbook

It’s very rare for me to not be excited about a designer x Target collaboration. When I was living in Seattle, I would promise time and time again that I would be making purchases from these exclusive collections, but if I had to be really honest with myself – it was just too hard to get to a Target from the city. I’m finally just a mere 10 minutes from one and I’m hoping that I can snag one of these adorable pieces for my closet. As if I haven’t done enough shopping for my birthday lately…right? To view the entire lookbook, click the source at the bottom of the post.

Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Suki Waterhouse

Wearing: Reem Acra

Where: Insurgent Premiere

I actually didn’t think that I would love this, but somehow when I was looking at all the other looks from the premiere, I kept coming back to this one. Completely fixated on how pretty it was, but also how imperfect and edgy it is at the same time.

Proud Owner: Birthday Edition

Wilfred Free Yasmin Dress

I’ve been doing such a good job lately of saving my moneys and it’s something that I’m actually really proud of. Other than purchases made on a gift card, I haven’t bought any new clothes for myself in what feels like two months. Turns out that I never really needed to anyways. However, with my birthday just around the corner, I thought I deserved some new pieces and was pretty excited to splurge a bit on things that I knew I would love. This year, I decided that I wanted two dresses – one to wear the night I celebrate my birthday and another one to wear to work on the day of my birthday! Both dresses are from Aritzia and I adore them for very different reasons.

I have a long sleeved sweater dress similar to the one above, but I didn’t feel like it would be casual enough to wear out – plus I don’t want to wear long sleeves out. I decided to opt for this more laid back look with a sexy back cutout. I think it’s kind of fun! I’m really excited to not only wear this dress for my birthday, but for other occasions too. If this dress looks familiar, it’s because you’ve probably seen it during a “Closet” post that I’ve done.

The dress below is just really pretty and quirky. I really liked the print and the black and white is very versatile. I tried this dress in an electric blue too which would be great if I were headed to a tropical island, but I didn’t find it to be as wearable as this one.

In Case You Missed It… Zoolander 2

As we all know, our favorite models Derek and Hansel walked the Valentino runway earlier this week and it wasn’t just a random decision. They are, in fact, making a Zoolander sequel and this was the most perfect way for them to reveal the news. Zoolander 2 is slated to be released February 12, 2016. Can you believe that it will have been 15 years since the first movie was released? I’m so curious now about what my 11-year-old self thought about that film.

And what! They also got to meet Anna Wintour. They really went all out for publicity.
