Katie’s Favorites of 2012

Favorite Style Icon: Taylor Swift

T. Swift has seriously stepped her game in 2012. Yes, she’s still sticking to the neutral colored dresses – but hey! That’s okay. It works for her. Taylor Swift is really just doing all the right things when it comes to her style these days and it helps that there are a handful of fabulous designers throwing their pieces at her. It’s awesome. I, of course, am jealous.

Runner Up: Michelle Obama / Kate Middleton

Favorite Event of the Year: Quadstock 2012

I don’t mean to toot my own horn with this one, but I’m going to. Working, organizing, and being a part of Quadstock was one of the best experiences of my life. It was truly a celebration of what I could accomplish and an expression for my passion so yeah…in the end, it was most definitely the BEST event of the year for me. I work with amazing people.

Runner Up: Capitol Hill Block Party 2012 (2 Days)

Favorite IT Couple: Barack and Michelle Obama

Favorite Breakout Band: The Lumineers

A Mumford-like band that I can really get into.

Runner Up: Beat Connection

Favorite Guilty Pleasure TV Show: Homeland

I’ve got a love/hate relationship with Claire Danes’ character Carries, but we make it work.

Runner Up: Start Ups: Silicon Valley

Favorite Retailer: Aritzia

I have nothing, but great things to say about them. And I’ve always worn their clothes repeatedly after I make a purchase. That’s how you know it’s a good piece.

Favorite Funny Viral Video: Celebrities Read Tweets About Themselves

Favorite Trend: Menswear

So menswear isn’t exactly a trend for 2012 it is just men…dressing well. But I’m all about that! Men dressing well and taking care of how they look is not just a trend, it should be something that is done consistently. If you haven’t adopted it now, jump on it. In 2012, we saw a whole slew of men step up their game and you know what? The ladies are paying. attention.

Favorite Obsession: Weddings

As a little girl, I’ve always sort of had a love for weddings and now as a young woman, that love has exploded. This isn’t news to any of you though. Wedding Mondays and wedding videos have taken over Yow Yow! but you should know that the obsession has always been here.
