Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Cara Delevingne

Wearing: Dolce & Gabbana suit; Dior corset; Christian Louboutin shoes

Where: 2020 American Music Awards red carpet

My favorite part of this is the neutral corset. It’s so subtle, but incredibly elegant at the same time. I also love that she didn’t go for a bright or deep red for her lips and really like the violet hue for her eyes. Cara’s stylist needs a raise.

KITH’s A New York Love Story

Though I’ve never been to New York around the holidays, I am sure that this is the most romantic time of the year. Watching this short campaign video by KITH along with Dash & Lily last weekend has confirmed it for me. In a time where retailers are struggling, it’s refreshing to see pieces like this. Collections are still getting released and of course, there are reasons for us to get dressed up and find love along the way. Watching this from start to finish didn’t feel like a campaign video, but rather a short story of how a couple came to be in the early stages. The focus wasn’t on the looks when it came to the campaign, but once you know who this was made by, it sort of all came together. That being said, we’re posting for the video first and foremost, but here are some choice looks:

This Weekend:

What We’re Watching: Dash & Lily

The holiday season just feels so different this year, doesn’t it? Normally, I would make my list of series and completely veg out on my parents couch spending all of my holiday break watching all of my shows. Naturally, my family would also be dragged along for the ride against their wishes. This year though, it’s just me! Dash & Lily has just come out on Netflix and I’ve seen it pop up from a few people that I follow on Instagram who are raving about the series. We’re suckers for holiday themes, but also hello! An Asian American female lead!

What We’re Listening To: DJ Wegun, Jay Park – Everybody Sucks

Okay, technically this came out about two weeks ago, but we’re behind! I stumbled upon the Jay Park trend hard this summer and have since gone down a pretty deep rabbit hole alongside BTS and other K-Pop artists. Each track seems to be in collaboration with another artist. With only six tracks, getting through this album is going to be quick, but let’s hope it’s a good one!

What We’re Wearing: [Aritzia Auxiliary Ribbed Cuff Beanie] – $35

It’s officially beanie weather! I don’t know about you, but I have been freezing in my home since before the start of the week and at all times indoors, I’m always wearing wool socks. When I threw on my beanie just a week ago to go outside, I felt like my head was reuniting with an old friend. How did we get here? Wasn’t it just summer? So the above isn’t the exact same black beanie I have from Aritiza, but it’s similar and still available!

What We’re Eating: Hog Island Oyster Co. Clam Chowder

This is wishful thinking! I actually don’t know what I’ll be planning to have this weekend, but if it’s nice weather (unlike today’s rain) I’d like to stop by the Ferry Building. I’ve been thinking a lot about cozy meals that just make sense around this time and Hog Island Oyster Co’s Clam Chowder is one of my absolute favorites.

Zendaya x Elle Magazine

Since she left her days of Disney behind her, Zendaya has become such a force. Euphoria is not the type of show I thought I would enjoy, but here I am waiting patiently for a second season. Time after time, she continues to transcend on the red carpet and I’m so excited to see what’s next for her. In her latest [cover story] for Elle Magazine, we are being served with more than a handful of incredible looks and an interview done by her co-star Timothy Chalamet.

Snaps for a Snapshot: Election Edition

It was a beautiful and historic night yesterday evening! For Kamala Harris’s debut as the Vice President Elect and Jill Biden as the next First Lady, their outfits were a nod to American fashion. In her first address to the country, Kamala chose a white suit by Carolina Herrera. Making history as the first woman to hold the highest title in office, the first woman Vice President and first Black and South Asian to hold this title, the color white is symbolic in many ways. Fashion historian Shelby Ivey Christie noted on [Twitter] that “monochromatic dressing is the mark of celebration in the Black community.” The color white was also in reference to the U.S. women’s suffrage movement and the 19th Amendment.

Jill Biden may not have given a speech last night, but there is plenty of time for that as she assumes the role of First Lady for the next four years. Complimentary to Carolina Herrera, Jill selected another well known American fashion brand in Oscar de la Renta. Embellished with florals, the short-sleeved black dress matched her black mask and pair well with her heels. Today is just the beginning and what I hope will be a fresh start. I also cannot wait for the fashion looks to come out of these two women for the next four years.

D Ô E N 2020 Holiday Collection

[Trianon Dress] – $598

November is here! And in the year 2020, holiday parties are non-existent because truly, any company that decides to hold one during a pandemic is morally irresponsible. As many of you know, holiday party coverage is always one of my favorite posts around this time of the year and it’s also something that I, myself, participate in with my company. It’s likely that we’ll be doing a safer more virtual celebration, but nothing can ever replace the party we’re used to holding. In lieu of our usual posts, we’ll be posting holiday collections as we see them come up and we’ll still do a roundup. You may never know when there will be a use for that dress again and who knows? Maybe you’ll have a chance to buy it discounted like I bought mine last year and have it work out for you!

In this post, we’re covering the beautiful holiday collection by D Ô E N.

[Cassatt Dress] – $598

[Pandora Dress] – $498
