Kendall and Kylie x The Top Shop

The Jenner sisters have unveiled their second collection with Top Shop and I’m surprised I’m even saying this, but I’m pretty impressed with some of the pieces. Not only are they the things you want to wear for your upcoming holiday party, but there’s a whole lot of black – which means that it’s versatile and you can wear them over and over again for a number of occasions. We’ve always been a fan of re-wearing things from our closet.

The collection will be available online and in the UK on Friday, Nov. 20, as well as at U.S. Topshop locations and select Nordstrom stores worldwide on Dec. 4.

Out of the 15 piece collection, here are just a few of our favorites! – but actually that dress that Kendall is wearing above is just THE BEST.

How We Holiday Party in 2015

Lovers + Friends Primrose Dress – $170

No matter how badly you want things to go a certain way, no amount of effort or time can change what’s supposed to actually happen. You would think that I would’ve learned this valuable lesson by now. For the last two years, I’ve worn black dresses – both very similar to each other. So in my third holiday party with my company, I vowed to be a little bit different. This year was going to be the year that I wore a white dress! So we started the search and the dream dress that I had wanted ran out the day after I had found it online. The dress that I ended up buying was beautiful and a steal as it was 50% off, but it didn’t feel like it was the one – I just wasn’t sure so I had to go to the mall and do my due dilligence – try on all the holiday party dresses to be sure that I was happy with the one I had purchased. Sure enough, I found one and it wasn’t white, but it was the one. You know how sometimes people talk about when they’ve found the one and they just know and they have no other reason that they give, but that one reason? That’s how I felt about this dress today and I can’t say the same for the others.

Now that I’ve finally got THE dress, we can write this post without much worry. I’ll be sure to share the one I actually wear next month in a later post, but since I’ve done some pre-research, the selection I’ve provided below is real good. I’ve scoured everything.

What We Wore to Taylor

Screen Shot 2015-11-14 at 8.21.04 PM

Tank top – Nordstrom / Shorts – Brandy Melville / Hat – Nordstrom / Booties – Munro (Nordstrom)

We actually blogged about our entire Taylor Swift concert experience a long time ago, but I remembered that I never talked about what I wore and this was an outfit that I was pretty excited about. It was one of the hottest days of the summer and this was the only big concert that I was going to be attending all season long so I had to make this count. I didn’t know what I was going to be wearing the day or even the week before, but I had an idea. I woke up early the morning of the concert just so I could go to the mall to make everything all fit together. Once I had the clothes, that hat became the last piece. I saw it on display right as I was about to head out of Nordstrom and I’m not a HUGE hat person by any means, but little did we know that this very hat would be making lots of appearances in our outfits after this day. I really love this shot because this was right next to our Taylor tailgate and this wide open space before everyone arrived was perfect.

Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015

Since the entire fashion show is such a huge televised production, the actual show is filmed almost a month early before it actually airs on CBS. There’s a whole lot to be excited about revolving the show including our favorite Lily Aldridge in the Fantasy Bra, performances by Ellie Goulding, Selena Gomez, and The Weeknd, and Kendall and Gigi’s debut on the VS runway. Here are our favorite looks below – NSFW probably.

The show contained six themed segments — “Boho Psychedelic,” “Exotic Butterflies,” “Portrait of an Angel,” “Pink USA,” “Ice Angel” and the finale, “Fireworks”

Welcome to Seattle, Uniqlo!

Uniqlo finally opened their first location in Seattle yesterday (well specifically Bellevue!) Of course, everything exciting happens when I leave for California. They had our girl Hollis Wong-Wear in their campaigns and isn’t she the most darling thing ever?! I hope all of my friends back home are enjoying the opening of the store. We love this brand so much, but it’s no secret that I’ve been spoiling myself with them for the last two years since I’ve been in California and there are no shortage of their shops. :)

CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Dinner 2015

Amanda Seyfried in Givenchy

It’s been awhile since we’ve had a fashion post and what I’m loving about this one is that a ton of models and celebrities chose to wore white! I recently have been considering a white dress for my upcoming holiday party and while a lot of people have been telling me to go black, I’m completely opposed. After two years of black dresses, I’m ready to try something a bit different so I’m using some of these looks for inspiration.

Madewell Spring 2016

Are we ready to talk about Madewell’s Spring 2016 collection yet? Probably not, but it’s always exciting to look ahead. My friends used to describe in a word: Futurist – always looking/planning ahead for things that are very very far out into the future so just like I am that way in my life, I’m also the same way with my wardrobe planning. Madewell just released some snaps for Spring 2016 and we’re just as giddy even with it being 4-5 months away.

Oak + Fort Comes to SF!

Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 11.15.04 PM

I just learned this week that one of my favorite brands out of Vancouver, Oak + Fort, had decided to open up their 2nd US store in Hayes Valley in San Francisco so I made plans this weekend to head over there and bring my co-worker Jen with me. The store was pretty much made for her and I think she now loves it way more than I do. Lucky for her, it’s right down the street from her home. The store specializes in a lot of oversized pieces, but really prides themselves on comfort so everything is super snuggly and warm – just what we’re looking for in the Bay Area this fall! So I walked away with three beautiful pieces and Jen loved everything so she snagged like 10! We also had the best time with all of the ladies working there who let us chit chat with them and let me bop around in their shop in the oversized scarf that I ended up bringing home with me. Maybe we’ll just come back for the friends.

Here are the pieces I took home:

Canyon Child

Screen Shot 2015-10-25 at 7.32.14 PM

One of the best things about having Yow Yow! is that when my friends do amazing things, I get to talk about it! Gelesia recently launched her new clothing line Canyon Child and I couldn’t be more proud. I actually got to have a sneak peak of it when I was in LA visiting her last month and she even let me try on the dress photographed above after I begged her to let me to. I mean, okay, I didn’t have to beg that hard. Gelesia is probably my best-dressed friend of all though and since we were teenagers in high school she’s always been a trendsetter and had a style unlike anyone else’s. What I love about this line is that it combines both her style and a very southern California look. Her pieces are flowy, delicate, airy, and are incredibly versatile to be worn to any occasion – whether that’s lunch, to coffee, running errands, etc. We hope you’ll check it out!

Yow Yow! Down South

Processed with VSCOcam with kk2 preset

Last week, we traveled down to the south for the very first time! I had been looking forward to this trip for awhile and after 4 days of hard work with my team in Houston at the Grace Hopper Conference, a few of us had planned ahead of time to wind down in Austin the weekend after. Houston was whatever, but Austin was extremely cute and charming. If I had to describe it, it was probably a more fast paced Portland, but with that same darlingness and Southern charm that you might expect. When planning this trip, we all kind of prioritized what mattered to us the most 1) Food 2) A great Airbnb in an awesome neighborhood and 3) the ability to get around – so we got a rental car and I played Soccer Mom the entire weekend!

It’s still summer in Texas so with the hot hot heat, we headed over to Barton Springs for the afternoon where we laid out and sort of got into the water.

Taylor Swift Eve

Screen Shot 2015-10-24 at 9.45.41 PM

Crop top – Aritzia / Skirt – H&M / Birkenstocks

We’re so behind on our posts that this outfit dates all the way back to August! Nearly a year before Taylor Swift’s actual “1989” show in Santa Clara, my coworkers bought about 20 tickets so they could all go together. They kept asking me if I had wanted to go, but I kept turning down the opportunity because I didn’t think I was a big enough fan to be deserving enough to go. Also, I hadn’t listened to her “1989” album at all except for the songs that had been released on mainstream radio (big mistake on my part.) As we got closer and closer to the actual concert date, I started to experience FOMO. Luckily, a couple tickets opened up and I raised my hand right away! I was so excited that I decided to wear a crop top with my outfit the next day in true Taylor fashion. I hope I made her proud!
