I’ve been told by several people that Kendrick Lamar is one rapper that I need to see in concert. Luckily, Bumbershoot gave me that opportunity this past summer and while I don’t typically listen to Kendrick’s material, I remember once upon a time when I battled another university in Seattle to book him for a music festival. At the time he was very up-and-coming and today’s he’s on the cover of GQ. These days, I’m listening to a different genre of music, but I was very impressed with the way that he commands a crowd. I’ve never seen such rowdy fans, but I suppose that just means he’s doing his job. Also, he cleans up nicely.
GQ has partnered with GAP to release a 37-piece collection highlighting the designs from four up-and-coming brands/designers including Aviator Nation, Baldwin, Bespoken, and Ernest Alexander. Guys, if you’ve been putting off shopping for new digs this fall, now is really the time to do it. You can peep the entire collection here (and start purchasing) or you can find a store near you to shop the collection in person. It is pretty distinct to tell the four collections apart, but at the same time there are similarities as well. I think it’s great because that just means that there’s something for every type of guy. Each designer offers between 9-12 pieces with prices ranging from $30 for accessories to $348 for more coveted pieces like a jacket.
Anna Kendrick was featured in the latest issue of GQ and while she was on set for her photo shoot, she dished out some advice on dating.
We think that if this were ever possible, Anna Kendrick would totally fit in with mine and Veronica’s friend group here in Seattle.
When two perfectly polished fashion designers couple up (and shack up) you can pretty much expect that every aspect of their life is going to be a designer’s dream. GQ recently featured the home of Jeff Halmos and Lisa Mayock of Shipley & Halmos and Vena Cava, respectively. Not only are these two my style icons and the most fashionable couple I’ve ever laid eyes on, but they are so very much in love and what do I love more than love? Um. Nothing.

I must sound like a broken record about this by now, but nothing – and I mean nothing – makes me swoon harder than a well-dressed man. Guys – I’m trying to help you out here! In fact, the whole world is trying to help you out here. Take it from all of the women around you. You ask us why we are so happy all the time? It’s not because we just dress well; it’s because dressing well makes us happy people. (And happy people just don’t kill their husbands) Hi, Legally Blonde reference.
Anyways, Gap and GQ recently came together to produce a men’s capsule collection that is both stylish and affordable. If you’re not chasing this down Sept 27, then you don’t have your priorities straight. Check out the rest of the collection at the source below.
Oh. my. goodness.
He is the dreamiest of all dreamboats. That tie clip – I just can’t handle it. The full article is actually worth reading as I have found that it paints JGL from quite a few perspectives. However, there is a controversial mention of his brother’s death in the article, which JGL is not happy about and has commented on it here.
I can’t exactly explain why Adam Brody is my dream crush. I mean I could try to explain, but I’m not sure if it would make sense to anyone. Adam Brody as Seth Cohen was a freakin’ dreamboat. He loved Death Cab For Cutie. Hello – Death Cab For Cutie is like the anthem band for any Seattle resident. Seth Cohen was all into his comic books. I knew my X-Men characters. His hobbies included skateboarding, boating, and being stealth. I’m not into any one of those things, but I can learn to appreciate it.
If Adam Brody would reprise his role as Seth Cohen in his own series, I would watch it. It has been five years, but his appeal has not faltered one bit.
The actor was recently featured in this spread for GQ and he looks damn good. Just sayin’…
