She Wore What: Pippa Middleton’s Wedding Day

It happened! Pippa Middleton is a married lady and the bride wore a couture Giles Deacon gown for her special day. I’m in love with this – the high neck, allover lace, and overall silhouette. This is such a modern take on classic and elegance. Pippa and Kate are two sisters with very good taste. As you may remember, after Kate wore her long-sleeved Alexander McQueen wedding dress, it became the next IT dress of wedding seasons for the next year. I definitely expect the same trend to follow with Pippa’s wedding style as well.

Celebs @ Dior’s Cruise 2018 Show

Demi Moore

I missed a moment in fashion this week when celebrities and models attended the Western-inspired show presented by Dior’s 2018 Cruise collection. Everyone was dressed to the nines so we had to make this a post of its own instead of just featuring one person for a Snaps for a Snapshot. When you can’t pick just one – choose them all. Everyone wore Dior.

Oscar de la Renta Bridal

I wasn’t quite sure if I’d be covering bridal week at all, but when we stumbled across Oscar de la Renta’s latest collection, there’s no way we couldn’t. Even if this is the only coverage we have, we’d be happy with it because it is truly perfection. Here is a sneak peak of their spring 2018 collection and we’re off to dream about our perfect wedding…! Be prepared to be amazed!

2017 Oscars After Parties

Elizabeth Banks in Elie Saab (this is so unbelievably stunning)

Nobody loves a red carpet more than I do. (Well maybe Ryan and Giuliana) but I don’t mess around on award show days and Sunday afternoons with the red carpet have a special reservation in my day planner. However, while everyone is anticipating THE red carpet, I’m also getting ready for my second wave – the red carpet of the after parties. This is where some of the most daring looks of the night come out. We’ve been doing this post after the award shows red carpet for years so if you’ve been with us awhile, this is nothing new to you. However, if you are new – welcome.

Moonlight Cast x Calvin Klein

I knew big things were in the works for the Moonlight cast after nearly every single of them was outfitted in Calvin Klein last night, but didn’t know what exactly was coming our way. Turns out, they’re giving us an underwear campaign. Happy Monday y’all! I had a chance to watch Moonlight this week before the Oscars and I’m thrilled that they took home the big win for Best Picture and for Best Supporting Actor. I can’t remember the last time I saw a film quite like Moonlight and loved the cinematography and scoring beyond what I could describe in words. If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. It’s so beautiful and important. Also important, the cast killing it in this campaign. Sort of NSFW, but whatever – view at your own discretion!

The campaign features the stars of the film, Alex Hibbert, Ashton Sanders, Mahershala Ali, and Trevante Rhodes.

“Since the beginning, Calvin Klein’s underwear imagery has always made big statements about masculinity; the performances of these actors in ‘Moonlight’ affected us deeply and made big statements about masculinity in a different way. Somehow we wanted to bring the two together,” said Calvin Klein creative director Pieter Mulier.

Oscars 2017 Red Carpet

Viola Davis in Armani Prive

WOW what an award show. We’re likely going to have a chat about all of the things that went on this evening, but for now – let’s just get to all of the red carpet details. There was a lot of fringe, a lot of neutral color tones and “Hollywood glam.” I’ll admit, when I watched the red carpet special, there weren’t many looks that blew me away right off the bat, but as the night went on, looks started to grow on me and we were able to figure out our top 5!

Grammys Red Carpet 2017

Rihanna in Armani Prive

This year, we missed both the Grammy awards and the red carpet. We’ve been on a pretty good streak so far with awards shows, but today I wanted to take the day off and instead, I went to go see “50 Shades Darker” with a couple of my girlfriends. At dinner later on, the show happened to be airing at the restaurant we were at so I caught a few glimpses, but we’re likely going to catch up on all the notable performances and speeches in the next day or two. As always, Grammy fashion is sometimes the award show that produces the most talked about outfits so with that, here are our favorites along with ones that we feel we have to highlight just because!

Madewell Launches Intimates

Madewell has held a very special place in my heart since they first opened up their store at University Village back in 2010. I was a college student then and still figuring out my own style after coming out of my “scene” phase in high school. I liked J. Crew because it was where my mom and Kevin had shopped and naturally, wanted to feel as cool as they were. But the truth was that I could never truly identify with J. Crew. The clothes felt stiff to me – too sophisticated – and didn’t match the vibe that I was going for. Madewell opening was everything I was looking for. Good denim – fitted chambray shirts – youthful prints and colors that fit my age and who I was. We’ve had a love affair with Madewell for the last seven years so this next piece of news that we’re about to share was next level in our relationship with the retailer. Announced this week, Madewell was now launching an intimates line. American Eagle has done it. So has Abercrombie. We’re also huge fans of Aritzia’s line of bralettes so why not Madewell?

The range consists of 42 pieces — 16 bralettes and 26 bottoms in a variety of sweet colorways — and is priced from $12.50 to $32.

Comfort is key when it comes to the pieces in Madewell’s new intimates line and this doesn’t stray too far from their already super comfortable and cozy apparel collections. Here are some things that we’re already lusting for and may or may not purchase for ourselves as a Valentine’s Day gift:

Guys, Would You Wear It?

Nobody knows more than me that I love a good choker trend. We’ve been obsessing over them since the summer and we’re not slowing down any time soon. However, ASOS decided to put the trend to a serious test this week by releasing a choker for guys. So male readers of Yow Yow! … I have to know, would you wear it? Is this an accessory that you can get behind? How would you style it?

You can check out the full collection here . And before you scratch your head and say, “Katie, but aren’t these women’s chokers? How can you distinguish them?” Well the link I just included shows that the search results have indeed been filtered down to just “men.” Yep. So this is a real thing that’s happening. Then after I read this news, I came across this:

This is The Today Show’s Matt Lauer also wearing a choker. Except, we’re a little put off that he’s displaying it Superman style. Why not wear an outfit that will already allow it to stand out on its own instead of being hidden? Turns out he was wearing this because of the recent news about ASOS so let’s not expect him to be a regular.

Whatever the case, I think I’m okay with this trend. If a guy would like to wear a choker, they should just go ahead. I’m still going to wear mine. Maybe we can match. Let’s just end this post on a good note though:

“Are Print Magazines Dying?”

That was my first thought when I read a headline today that Teen Vogue would be scaling back that issues from monthly to quarterly. Granted, it’s Teen Vogue so it’s not like adult Vogue which would be an even bigger deal, but usually when this happens, it means that it might be on its way to being phased out. I’m not a collector of magazines these days, however, my coworker next to me somehow started receiving a subscription to Teen Vogue in the last year and started passing them over to me. I didn’t know where to put them where I was cleaning my place this weekend so they are in a stack on my bathroom counter for now.

I don’t think I would be surprised if Condé Nast announced that they would be going purely digital within the next year. Should we start taking bets now?

According to a statement from the company, “the new frequency is designed to capture key audience moments relevant to young readers lives,” and the new print edition will debut in spring 2017 as a larger book with a collectible, “keepsake” feel. 

Also the reason why I believe Teen Vogue might be folding is because Lucky saw the same death as well back in 2015 when they scaled back to quarterly and then…well we know what happened after.

Teen Vogue, let’s just do a thank you now – thank you for being the high end print magazine that helped me shape my teenage years and taught me how to use better makeup and to look up to amazing style icons before anyone else during my youth years.
