Anna Sui

Through the years, my love for Anna Sui has grown deeper and deeper! Her intersection between feminine and slightly goth is a style that speaks to me. It’s not anything I ever thought I would love growing up, but it’s the collection that you gravitate towards because it’s intriguing.

Lunya

[Washable Silk Set] – $178

Now that I’ve had all this time to spend at home, it really doesn’t make sense to get dressed up every day. Denim jeans are no longer the first thing that I gravitate towards. I may not be as active when I’m working from home and milling about between four different rooms, but I want to be comfortable nonetheless. After comfort, the second thing that I want to prioritize is feeling good. Getting ready and putting a face on helps me to feel awake. The combination of these two things is what has drawn me towards [Lunya] recently. While I don’t own any pieces by them yet, I’m keeping my eye on them.

Known for specializing in comfortable sleepwear and inspired by off-duty ballerinas, there’s no reason why you can’t mix and match these pieces and find a way to incorporate them in your daily wear. Here are just a few of our favorites!

[Cool High Rise Pant] – $138

[Restore Short] – $68

[Restore Pocket Legging] – $98

[Prima Silk Chiffon Set] – $278

How Reality TV Shows Cast the Right People

One of my favorite past times is going to the MTV Casting Call page to see what I’m eligible to be featured on. I’ve been doing this for many years, but I’m way past the age for this to be acceptable! At my last employer, I worked with a few individuals responsible for casting. It is the most fascinating process! In this video, we see an insider’s view of how casting is done on one of my favorite most wholesome reality shows. The secret? It’s the stories that are being casted prior to the individual themselves. When you think about it, that order of steps makes perfect sense. It’s also one of the reasons why this job is so difficult in the first place.

Selena Gomez x Allure

While the pandemic has proven to be much more challenging on all of our lives, it’s amazing to see how people persevere when they don’t always have their normal resources. For one, editorials and magazine shoots are at is most innovative. In the latest issue of Allure, Selena Gomez is responsible for all of her own makeup. It doesn’t hurt that she’s also promoting her new cosmetics line, Rare Beauty, so she’s no rookie here. Given the circumstances, everything is getting done with a smaller team and smaller production. It just goes to show what we can accomplish when we’re constrained! We love this entire look though. For the full interview, you can read the cover story at [Allure].

This is my favorite shot.

One of the best parts about quarantine is being able to see everyone else’s creative projects. When we aren’t hopping from one social activity to another after work or on the weekends, where do we spend our time? What things can we build when we give ourselves the space for it? If you’re like me, you’ll turn to TikTok. However, some are getting further into the details. Japanese artist, Manami Sasaki, is creating beautifully designed toasts. You thought your local avocado toast was good; this is next level. With inspiration from artists like Picasso to characters like Mickey Mouse, Sasaki lets her imagination fly.

Each piece of toast will take about three hours to create. Like the artist that she is, everything is laid out to a tee. First comes the concept before she skips off to the market for the actual ingredients. For an entire gallery of everything she’s created during this time, visit her [Instagram].

The World’s Longest Glass Bottomed Bridge Now In China

When I first saw images of this bridge spanning Lianjiang River, I was instantly reminded of bridges in South Korea or the one in Switzerland. Both of which were iconic to the K-drama series, Crash Landing on You. This new bridge in China though is neither. What it is is setting a new world record, however, for longest glass bottomed bridge in the entire world.

The suspension bridge connects two sides of a gorge 660 feet above the river and has a capacity of 500 people. Suspended from cables and supported by two red towers at either end, it’s constructed using three layers of tempered laminated glass, and has a transparent bottom that allows tourists to look directly down at the water. There are also large viewing areas where visitors can stop to take photos. The glass-bottomed feature offers a pretty cool perspective, but if you’re afraid of heights, this bridge might just be your worst nightmare.

Because of its beautiful glass bottom, this is sure to be a popular spot for photos.

Tibi

Let Fashion Week begin! I don’t know why I’m always surprised by this because we cover fashion week all the time on Yow Yow!, but this idea that we are reviewing Spring 2021, but coming out of summer where a lot of these pieces remind us so much of what we’re wearing now.

Not Your Ordinary Colorway

Nike describes their latest Air Max Up to be a black and white iteration, but isn’t it so much more than that? Here I see white, black, light lavender, leather, and a piece that is translucent. Honestly, this colorway is something out of the future and while this isn’t my usual taste, I like it. Somehow I’m captivated by its weird clearness on the heel and the fact that the swoosh is partially done. I recently thought maybe I’d pick up running after buying a new pair of Zella leggings so athletic footwear has become top of mind again. For a pair of your very own, you can shop these on [Titolo] for a cool price of $201.30 USD.
