Elle Women in Hollywood Awards

Vanessa Hudgens

It has been a couple of weeks for women. There’s a lot in the news that doesn’t make me happy to share and my heart hurts for all the women – the victims – that have had to endure their share of sexual harassment and sexual assault at the hands of men. This week, I’m seeing women come together in so many ways – through social media, through events, and through stories. I hate to have to witness a moment like this in 2017, but at the same time, I couldn’t be more proud of the strength in our voices right now. We could spend hours writing a post recapping all of my feelings from the past couple of weeks, but instead I’d like to share some photos of inspiring women from the Elle Women in Hollywood Awards.

Bridal Week 2018

Romona Keveza Legends Fall 2018 Bridal Collection

How did we completely miss this?! I must have had a busy week to have completely watch all of these shows go by and not tune into a single on. I just caught up on Fashionista’s recap and since we already started with Wedding Mondays anyways, we might as well carry it on into showcasing some of our favorite looks. Do you all love these as much as I do?

Erdem x H&M

 

When I was in college, I remember looking forward to the releases of these collections. I couldn’t wait to hear who H&M and Target would collab with next from the high fashion world and even though I had all of that excitement built up on that one release and could make a list of all of the items I wanted, I never actually followed through with the purchase. I guess that says something about me and commitment, doesn’t it? It’s been awhile since we posted about a collab like this, but I’m in the mood for it. I still like to drop into H&M from time to time and Erdem is still a collection that I continue to love with every season. I’m loving all of the winter florals on display and while I’m not attending any weddings this winter, I think this collection is the inspo you all may need.

Here are my favorite picks!

2017 Emmys Red Carpet

Millie Bobby Brown wearing Calvin Klein

Whenever I get the chance, I always try to watch the earlier showing of the Emmys. How is this thing still three hours long? For the first time in a long time, I actually stayed pretty quiet on social media this time around. We didn’t live tweet the red carpet this year – mainly because I was still watching the Seahawks game during it and we didn’t tweet during the show. Overall, I think the show had a slow start. Stephen Colbert was okay as a host, but the biggest takeaway for me tonight was all of the people recognized. The most exciting part of the awards show was being able to celebrate a more diverse group of winners than ever before. What did everyone else think?

Looks looks and more looks below!

RIP Nylon Print

Last week, we learned that Nylon would make the complete switch to digital and would be shutting down their print magazine. I spent the weekend thinking about this and how Nylon wasn’t the first magazine to do this and it certainly won’t be the last. I can’t even recall the last year I had a magazine subscription or the last time I even bought one by choice. In a way, I’m the problem here. I’ve been reading Nylon both online and in print since I was a teenager, but these days only sticking to digital.

It was a prominent magazine for me during my scene days and when I felt like dipping into something I thought was just a little bit edgier than Teen Vogue. When I think of my identity back then, I think I was a little bit of both! Half Teen Vogue / Half Nylon. Wasn’t every girl at that age? Nylon was at the cutting edge of trends, icons, fashion, and music. There was even a time where I dreamt of being a part of this magazine in some way shape or form way wayyyy back when I wanted to be a journalist.

I’m very sad to hear that the print version of Nylon is shutting down. The magazine meant so much to me during my adolescent years, but as always, we’ll continue to read Nylon Digital every day and hope that even their print legacy can continue to live on as it shifts to fully digital.

2017 MTV VMAs Red Carpet

Demi Lovato in Zuhair Murad

Watching the pre-show to this event made me feel so old! I didn’t recognize half of these acts and boybands. Who is everyone? The good part of that though means that this post won’t be as long, but we’ll still be sure to include our favorite looks of those… that are relevant to my time period. For some reason, I wasn’t able to watch the event as it was airing on the east coast so I’m currently watching this as we type and I had to stay off of Twitter for three hours to not be biased by anything I might read. My bff Tommy tells me it wasn’t great and that he stopped watching before it ended. What did everyone else think about the show though?

Limited Too’s Pop Up

Limited Too will always hold for a very special place in my heart. It was the first retailer that I truly felt that I could identify with as a young girl growing up in the 90’s and discovering my own style. It meant so much to me that it was the first employer I ever had when I was just 16 years old and could finally start working. I lasted a whole three months before I decided to throw in the towel and jump ship to another retailer literally across from the store. Even though I wasn’t there anymore, I wanted Limited Too to continue on being the place that it was for young girls. Not too long afterwards, the store went through a name change to “Justice” and then ultimately was bought by Bluestar Alliance in 2015. It seemed like their footprint was disappearing from malls almost everywhere.

Now, word has dropped this week that Limited Too is staging a comeback and I couldn’t be more onboard. Any by onboard, I mean supporting from afar because I can no longer fit into their clothes. Centered around back-to-school shoppers, Bluestar has announced that Limited Too is coming back for a limited time only mobile pop-up! The pop-up will tour around New York City starting August 6th until August 10th.

The Limited Too back-to-school pop-up will start on 3rd Avenue, between 59th and 60th Streets (on August 6), and then will be stationed in Herald Square (on August 7 and 8), moving to Union Square (August 9) and finally ending the tour with a stop near Flatiron (August 10).

I cannot wait to see what their new merchandise will look like! The styles in which I wore as a kid and even the ones that I sold when I worked there will have vastly changed from what kids might be looking for now, but you can definitely assume that the glitter will be everywhere and that graphic tees and slogans are still a hot item.

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.
