It’s only the 4th look out of 71, but we already know that we’re going to love it. Giambattista Valli has always been a favorite, but this collection proves it’s truly all in the details. Even though this taps into an overly girly side, we love the bow hair accessory.Read more “Giambattista Valli”
In a way, fashion seems to be at a bit of a standstill during covid times. At this point, fashion week is up in the air for fall with many designers already pulling out of showing their collections live the way they are used to. Stylists, with no events to assist their clients on are on a break. Even for those who are used to doing outfits of the day (like myself) have resorted to the classic mirror selfie. It’s kind of the worst. However, Kendall Jenner still managed to put out a campaign for Burberry while in quarantine and nailed it.
With no help at all other than her own personal laptop, Kendall Jenner took the campaign photos herself. It may not be perfect, but it’s pretty good right? And if Kendall can do this, does my excuse for a mirror selfie no longer work?Read more “Kendall Jenner x Burberry”
[H&M Denim Jacket] – $30
We’ve transitioned to “there is no point in shopping” to “we’re in this for the long haul!” While I’ve never considered myself an online shopper… I’m not lying, I use Amazon once a year, there is a joy that is associated with receiving packages. And that goes for any type of package, not even just the shopping you’re doing for yourself. In times like these, where it seems like things will never get better, we have to treat ourselves. My justification is that I still need clothes to wear to work for my video calls. Also, because of our social media presence, it helps to have outfits that you can be excited by. I promise to be responsible, but I am also going to be making a shopping purchase as soon as we hit “post” on this.
[H&M Textured-Weave Maxi Dress] – $60Read more “The Closet: June 2020”
When I laid eyes on LoveShackFancy for the first time, it wasn’t what I expected. In fact, I was surprised by how much I wanted to own one of their pieces. My style has always been somewhat feminine, but as of late, not so much. If I were to measure LoveShackFancy on my spectrum, I would find it to be on the extreme side of whimsey and girly. Think princess type dresses for days, ruffles, lace and a whole lot of pink. Yet, despite that, that difference made me love it. When I learned that they would be launching a bridal collection, I was intrigued. I never thought I would see myself in a ball gown of any kind, but I knew LoveShackFancy wouldn’t do bridal that way and they didn’t. Prices range from $500-$2000 and are available now on their [website]. Below are a few looks that we’re swooning over:
San Francisco summer has arrived! The fog has rolled in and the skies are a deep gray. I got out this morning for a little bit to pick up flowers, coffee and pastries, but I’ve basically been sitting on my couch for the past few hours with the candle burning. How is it that San Francisco’s spring season is so much more forgiving to us than summer? I’ll never understand it.
What We’re Watching: Sorry to Bother You
Ok, we’re cheating a little bit because technically we watched this last night. “Sorry to Bother You” has been on my list for some time and I decided I wanted to make time for it last night and take a break from K-dramas. The film is smart, witty, and overly quirky. While it leans more on the humorous side, there’s a bigger message in here to grasp. We’re also huge fans of Lakeith Stanfield. You can watch the film currently on Hulu.
What We’re Listening To: Teyana Taylor – The Album
This came out just last week, but I’m excited to dive into this. We’ve been long time fans of Teyana and seeing all of the collaborators on this album – Kehlani, Big Sean, Eryka Badu gives us promise.
What We’re Wearing – [TNA Atmosphere Legging] – $68
I ordered this pair and another last month, but this was the first time I’d ever purchased this kind. My normal leggings from Aritzia are usually less than $30 so for the longest time I would ask myself why I needed to shell out over double for a pair that was likely going to be the same. Turns out, the jokes on me because they are very different! The fabric is so light and smooth. For a day of errands or even just wearing them around the house, I’ve felt comfortable all day. In fact, I like these so much that I don’t even want to change out of them for bed.
What We’re Eating: The Pasta Shop’s Ravioli
We’ve done our fair share of cooking this week so when it came time to head into the weekend, I really wanted to make things easy for myself. I picked up a package of [The Pasta Shop’s] ravioli at Bi-Rite along with a Bi-Rite Romesco sauce to pair it with. The Pasta Shop is based out of Oakland and while this was my first time trying this brand, I was impressed. For being a packaged product, it’s quite fresh and comes in so many varieties. There’s really something for everyone.
When I woke up to this news yesterday, I initially thought it was a joke. Doesn’t it seem like the kind of April Fools we’d expect? The doubt was merely just because of the very off-centered logo. Gap has been hurting for some time as a brand, but is Kanye West the answer here? Can his 10-year deal with the retailer save the company?
“We are excited to welcome Kanye back to the Gap family as a creative visionary, building on the aesthetic and success of his Yeezy brand and together defining a next-level retail partnership,” Mark Breitbard, Global Head of Gap Brand, said in a release.
For now, we can just expect clothing out of this collaboration, but may see more in the future. I’ve always viewed Gap to be a classic brand and while I’m not a regular, I love them for basic staples ie) loungerwear, pants, denim, etc. We’ll definitely keep an eye on what’s coming out, but not making any promises!
Maybe it’s because I rarely find myself dressing up like I used to at home, but I feel much more of a calling to dramatic pieces more than ever. Pre-COVID, I don’t think you would find me in ruffles like these. However this paired with this summery orange hue look like a dream to me. We’ve been long time fans of Zimmermann and their Resort collection is the summer style we’re craving.Read more “Zimmermann”
For as long as I continue to exist, I will always pray every year that the NBA will gift us with a basketball team back. Several times a year, I find myself questioning why a metropolitan city like Seattle had their basketball team ripped away from us in the first place. It makes no sense. Lucky for me, I’m not alone in this. The fact that Nike created this Air Flight ’89 in our team’s colorway tells me that brands feel this loss too. When we’ll get our team back, no one really knows. For now, our legacy can live on in this sneaker which you can now purchase from [Nike Japan] for $120 USD.
Before I got into CorePower, I was doing everything I could to avoid buying active wear. My rationale was this: why do I need pieces that can only be used for one activity? Instead, I tried to go to classes wearing pieces that I already owned that I assumed would work. A pair of leggings and an old loose fitting tank top got the job done, but I didn’t feel comfortable. Because the tank top was so loose, I found that it often got in the way. In a downward dog, the tank top was flailing. Soon after this, I conformed and now here I am getting excited about the release of a new collection by [Alo Yoga] When it came time to buy my first active wear pieces, they were the ones I turned to.
Their summer collection, dropped in celebration of International Yoga Day, is full of summer and earthy tones that bring warmth. As you can see above, it’s a spectrum of yellows, olives, and bronze hues. You can shop the collection now!
