Bay Bridge to Darken on Friday

There are so many pretty parts to San Francisco, but the Bay Bridge lit up is definitely near the top of the list. I remember when I used to have this view on a weekly basis and how much I a) loved it and b) took it for granted when it was no longer a constant. It is absolutely gorgeous. This coming Friday, however, the lights from the world’s largest LED light sculpture will come down as there was only a contract for a 2-year display.

People loved the Bay Lights so much, though, that the nonprofit organization behind it, Illuminate The Arts, managed to raise $4 million to make the exhibit a permanent fixture.

The 25,000 LEDs will come down so Caltrans can perform maintenance on the bridge cables. They’re planning on having them back up by February 2016, though, just in time for Super Bowl 50.

We’re so sad to see them go, but time flies and as long as they’ll be back, we won’t pout about it.

Karlie Kloss is Leaving Victoria’s Secret

Just as she was rising to the top of Victoria’s Secret stardom, Karlie Kloss is preparing to make her exit. It was reported last week that the angel is indeed walking away from all the VS modeling gigs and trading in those wings for a bunch of school books. This fall, Karlie will officially be a student at New York University! Hooray! She’s not quitting modeling for good, however, but as you might imagine, a contract with Victoria’s Secret takes up a fair amount of time. At least she’s walking away with four Victoria’s Secret Fashion Shows under her belt. While at NYU, Karlie will be enrolled at Gallatin School of Individualized Study and word on the street was that former supermodel Christy Turlingtun Burns was the one who actually wrote Karlie’s letter of recommendation. Awwww. It’s hard to believe she’s just 22 because the girl seems much wiser beyond her years. We’re excited for her education and what she’ll do next!

Madewell Teams Up W/ Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter

When I think of Madwell, I am reminded of two things. They’re the sister store of J. Crew and they’re home to some of the most exquisite pieces of denim I’ve ever come across in my life. Full disclosure – I don’t actually own a pair of Madewell denim… yet, but I will someday! I’m saving up! I’ve tried on a couple of pairs in their stores a few times now and each time, I find that they fit like a glove and perfectly which is difficult for me as I’m 5’1 and very petite. Jeans aren’t something that come easy for me which is why I always lean towards dresses and skirts.

Earlier this week, the company announced a major collaboration! They’ll be joining forces with both Nordstrom and Net-A-Porter to sell their pieces with them similar to how there’s a Free People section within Nordstrom’s TBD. Starting February 24th, 70 of Madewell’s pieces can be found on Nordstrom.com with physical pieces being in 15 Nordstrom stores on March 6th. On February 25th, 50 Madwell items will be avaialble for purchase online at Net-A-Porter. I’m pretty excited about this news because sometimes when I want to go shopping at all, I’ll JUST go to a Nordstrom (because it’s like home) so now I don’t need to find myself walking through the mall to get to another Madwell.

Sasquatch 2015 Lineup

Oh em gee – space themed! We’ve been a little bit slow on the posting lately because I’m recovering from a small cold. I must be losing my edge lately because I barely recognize anyone from the last five lines of the lineup! Regardless, Sasquatch always does such a great job and people always come out of it enjoying the experience that they’ve had.

I just happen to be a girl that prefers a shower and a bed ;)

House of DVF Returns for 2nd Season

It seems like Brittany Hampton was just announced as DVF’s newest brand ambassador yesterday, but already, it looks like the fashion designer is on her way to find her second brand ambassador and hosting the second season of her show on E! once again. Initially, I didn’t think that I would enjoy this reality show as much as I would, but from the very first episode I was hooked. I think it was impossible for me to miss an episode of it every Sunday so I always had to make sure I was home to catch it. What I loved the most? That the audience gets an inside look at what it’s really like to be in the fashion industry and that these girls aren’t perfect. In fact, there’s something wrong with all of them as they all have flaws and that there isn’t a clear winner. Diane surprised me the most! You never know who she’s going to send home and how she’s going to send them home including inviting a girl into her car with her and telling her the bad news while Diane herself, is on her way to another event. Ruthless. I’ve since followed Brittany on Instagram just to get a glimpse of what she’s been up to her in her job and already she’s been busy at work styling, making appearances, and traveling to DVF store locations across the country.

Sounds like the gig is just as awesome as it sounds! Andddd we’re jealous.

Tiffany & Co. Support Same-Sex Marriage w/ New Ad

Tiffany’s is coming out strong in support for same-sex marriage with their newly released advertisement. This is the first time for Tiffany & Co. to ever feature a same sex couple in one of their ad campaigns and it is speaking volumes with the community.

The new campaign, shot by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh, showcases seven scenes of couples at different stages of their relationships, with a few twists.

One scene features a same-sex couple about to commit to marriage. The pair, shown sitting on a stoop in New York City, are a real couple, not models, according to a Tiffany spokesperson. Another photo shows a couple getting married with their child at their side.

The photos are a celebration of modern love, creating scenes that show love comes in a variety of forms, spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

“Nowadays, the road to marriage is no longer linear and true love can happen more than once with love stories coming in a variety of forms,” spokeswoman Linda Buckley said.

I have yet to see the other ads that are part of this campaign, but this one is definitely getting the most buzz around the internet currently!
