Fashionista.com Receives A Makeover

Screen Shot 2014-04-15 at 5.13.34 PM

I didn’t get to do too much digging around, but yesterday one of my favorite fashion blogs, Fashionista, unveiled their new look and I am absolutely loving it. I don’t think there was anything really wrong with their previous layout, but one of my biggest qualms was having to continue to scroll down to read content. If I ever felt overwhelmed, it was because of that, maybe. With the new layout, photos accompanying the articles are brought right to the front. The text is much easier to read and timestamps – oh my gosh – the timestamps are much more visible! In the previous layout, I was either guessing or squinting my eyes trying to figure out the date. That’s just not a problem with the new layout.

Fashionista.com – we give you a thumbs up! Thanks for making my fashion blog reading so much easier.

Kate Moss x TopShop lookbook

If Kate Moss’s name is on anything, everyone’s ears immediately perk up. Her long lasting relationship with Topshop has brought so much success to the retailer and there’s no doubt that it won’t happen again. Her highly anticipated collection for Topshop has something for everyone from tailored pieces to dresses that you can’t wait to wear out. Each piece is clearly inspired by the pieces from Kate’s own wardrobe. Prices will range from $70-$1,200 and available for purchase online and in stores at Topshop, Nordstrom, Net-a-Porter, and ShopBazaar.com. Here are some pieces that we’re pretty excited about:

Sephora Releases One-Time Use Nail Polish

Nail polish itself isn’t a costly purchase, but when you buy one of those small containers, you’re saying to yourself that you believe that you will use it more than one time. Sometimes, that is just not the case. After using one time, the realization sets in that the color just isn’t for you. And if you’re like me then you’re the type of person that wants the same thing in varying colors for no reason at all. Yep, if you guessed it – I am exactly that same way with my basic clothing. I really love this idea that Sephora is releasing a set of one time use nail polishes. It’s a game changer. And knowing me, I’ll naturally just do my best to see if I can try and make it last for more than just one time! (Because isn’t it kind of the challenge?)

At 24 different shades from Sephora’s own nail polish collection, the set will cost $39 and start selling in stores and online this May.

More of a nail pen-like pod than a traditional glass bottle of nail varnish, each one is designed to hold only the amount of polish needed for painting all 10 nails with two coats each. You basically pop off the cap to expose the brush, put a little pressure on the bottle, and paint away.

Chanel’s 2014 Fall RTW in a Super Market

Every season, Chanel is always a show that I look forward to. It’s not one that we always feature because maybe at that point in time, I don’t find their collections to be all that wearable, but if there is anything that I am more fascinated by than the clothes, it’s the show itself. For his Fall 2014 RTW show, Karl Lagerfeld created a faux super market with branded items like pasta, canned goods, and even home goods. It was apparent that a whole lot of detail went into planning the show and the thing about this is that had it been an ordinary show – the audience members would never even notice these details.

This show was not an ordinary one though. After each model walked out on the runway, they continued to stay and mill about the grocery store as if they were actually shopping. This made me wonder what the true underlying message is I think Fashionista said it perfectly:

[The set] spoke to the clothes in such a big way, in terms of a grocery store being the great equalizer. All types of women — from hip, young things to polished doyennes — inevitably need to pop into one for some reason or another. So you had girls in crop tops and leggings — so many leggings, from pink and shredded to glittery and purple…not to mention black and white tweed — to fancy ladies in classic skirt suits, like the one who walked out in a pink ensemble, accompanied by a personal butler to carry her myriad Chanel shopping bags.

After the show ended, guests and show attendees were invited to take home a complimentary fruit or vegetable, but naturally some people tried to actually loot the other goods. Can we blame them? Wouldn’t you want pasta out of a Chanel box, too?!

Madewell Spring 2014 Lookbook

The best part about living in California is that you don’t have to wait as long for spring to come around! I can never really complain about winter while living here anyways and if it is cold at all, I know that that will soon be passing. Madewell has been one of my favorite stores for the last few years and every year I am never disappointed by their collections especially for spring. This week they unveiled their latest lookbook for Spring 2014 and naturally, we’ve already picked a few favorites.

Football Helmets Getting a Fashion Upgrade

Leave it to the CFDA to create another amazing collaboration between 48 fashion designers and re-designing some stale NFL football helmets.

“This is the first time that the Super Bowl will be held in the New York region and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate by joining Bloomingdale’s and the NFL in merging fashion and sports with the creation of these unique helmets,” said Steven Kolb, CFDA CEO, in a statement.

Starting January 15th, each newly designed helmet will be up for grabs in an auction at Bloomingdales.com. For every helmet sold, 100% of the proceeds will benefit towards the NFL Foundation. The bidding for each helmet will start at $248 which kind of makes sense since this is the 45th Super Bowl. Here are some of my favorites:

Karl Lagerfeld will open London Flagship in 2014

Announced Wednesday, Karl Lagerfeld has revealed big news that he is opening up a London flagship in 2014 for the Karl Lagerfeld label. I haven’t done too much research into these pieces, but word on the street is that they are supposed to be more reasonably prices and geared towards a young audience.

According to The Telegraph, the upcoming London location will cater to fashion and tech lovers alike. Shoppers will be able to search inventory and watch branded content on one of the many in-store iPads, and dressing rooms come equipped with personal photo booths that feature Lagerfeld-exclusive filters. Did somebody say “selfie?”

The retails stores are a changin’! I’m curious to see how technology will merge with fashion in this way and what impact this will have on American retailers in the future. How long will it take for this trend to reach us? Months? A year? We shall see!

The Best of Fall Bridal

[Romona Keveza]

Not too long ago, I think I was “wedding shamed” by two of my friends when I told them that I wanted to forgo the bouquet and garter toss at my future wedding. Yes, I realize that these are traditional parts of a wedding, but I haven’t always been that traditional, myself. For some reason the thought of throwing my bouquet or having my future husband throw my garter out to a crowd doesn’t get me excited. I’m sure that if I were a guest attending a wedding, I would  be all for that. I’d probably be the first girl to wrestle the bouquet out of someone’s hands. That sort of makes me a hypocrite. The point of this post though is that I have a huge swoon spot for people who do weddings a little bit differently. I like a venue that no one has ever used as a venue. I want to see seating cards not on paper. And I have no problem with a dress that isn’t necessarily white. This, of course, brings us to fall bridal week! Now we all know that fashion shows can be a little bit outrageous and while some collections aren’t wearable, I am definitely seeing some gowns in this bunch rounded up by Fashionista that would make for the perfect wedding.

FashionKids

Kids are already adorable on their own, right? They actually could literally do nothing and still have people swooning over them. Well, clearly in the fashion industry, the level of cuteness for a well-dressed child is much more heightened. Who could ever forget the child style icon Aila Wang, niece of Alexander Wang? Aila, however, isn’t alone. She’s got clones and you can find them on a new Instagram called FashionKids.

The Instagram profile based in Brazil has garnered 1.3 million followers and offers up your daily dose of cuteness. To learn more about how the page came to be click here for the original post on Fashionista.

2013 MTV Video Music Awards

Miley Cyrus in vintage Dolce & Gabbana

Unfortunately, I was up in the air en route to San Jose this past Sunday while the MTV Video Music Awards was happening and had to miss  the entire show! Just as I was getting into my seat a video was released of Justin Timberlake’s performance, but as expected I had to put my phone away RIGHT before the *NSYNC reunion. Just my luck. Coming home today, I was hoping to watch the show on my OnDemand, but reached another dead end when I saw that it hadn’t been released! So as I write this post, I haven’t seen anything, but I’ve heard lots of opinions regarding Miley Cyrus and some of the outfit choices. Here are some of the outfits worth mentioning.
