This video needed more Marshawn. Of course we’ll be watching the Super Bowl tomorrow, but it’s always less fun for us when the Seahawks aren’t in it. In case anyone is wondering though…um, we’re rooting for the Falcons!
Cue the Valentine’s Day posts!
The events that occurred this weekend were deeply upsetting. We have a couple more posts tonight that aren’t as happy and chipper as we usually portray on Yow Yow! so before those happen, I’m leaving you with this: Marshawn Lynch being his best self in Houston, Scotland and with Skittles.
We have a confession to make. We’ll watch any video campaign that Alexa Chung is in. Alexa has been the face of AG Jeans for quite some time now and I think I’m starting to realize why having a strong influencer or face tied to a brand consistently is so important. If you’ve been following my Instagram Stories, then you know that I recently just purchased my first pair of designer jeans – Rag & Bone. In a world where there are so many competitors for this space, it can be challenging to find the right fit for you. I only purchased these because they were on sale at Aritzia, which happens to be my favorite retailer. We’ve been loving Alexa Chung for years and because we’ve always looked up to her as a style icon, I’m more likely to want to try on a pair of AG Jeans because I know that she’s represents the brand and secondly because I learned it from watching this video campaign. See what I did there? I think I could have articulated better, but right now, we’d rather just get this posted. :)
Also another reason why this video campaign is fun to watch is because it isn’t all about denim and AG. It’s a cheeky dinner party scenario featuring Alexa Chung and her quirky self in a scenario that we’ve all probably been in. Stay until the end though and then you’ll see what I’m talking about!
Meet Aggretsuko! She doesn’t really look like this and I promise she’s got a cute exterior, but based off the intro video I just saw of her, she also has a dark side. Her tagline? She’s over it. Geez, can we adopt that too? Apparently Aggretsuko is just like all of her friends and Hello Kitty, but inside she’s got some rage. Notice how her name kind of just looks like another version of… “Aggressive?” or “Aggravate?” Aggretsuko is a red panda working as an office associate at a trading company (a working girl! We like this!) and she’s clearly packing a punch.
Watch her intro video here. I laughed the whole way through 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:
Harry’s is starting 2017 strong. They just released this video yesterday describing more about the founders, the company and the business and I was completely hooked. It was so engaging. Why can’t every company have a video like this? We actually blogged about Harry’s originally back in 2013 and while I knew that they were still around and in business, things have been pretty quiet on their end. If you’re wondering also why this product reminds you of another quirky product, it’s because the co-founder Jeff Raider is also the man behind Warby Parker too.
I always seem to have the most time to blog around the holidays, but it just so happens that I like being able to post for “A Collection” during this time too. We last did this post about 6 months ago so all of today’s photos are ones that I’ve been collecting and saving since then. Here’s hoping that these photographs tickle you, inspire you, or spark some kind of emotion within you the same way they do to us. Happy New Year! We’re excited for you 2017.
Even when they are “Dad jokes” he still makes them sound cool. Pls don’t leave us.
This is just an all-around fantastic video. I’ve been hoarding this since September to watch at a later date because a) I didn’t have the time immediately (that’s right, too busy I can’t spare 10 minutes) and b) I have always wanted to eat at the American Girl Cafe. It’s actually very close to me at the Stanford Shopping Center so I feel like I can pretty much go whenever I please. The only downside of this experience though is that I never owned an American Girl doll, myself. Too much $$$$ amirite?!
Whatever the case, I certainly had a fascination with it growing up and while I couldn’t own a doll myself… I was a subscriber of the American Girl magazine for several years. Michael and Molly are hilarious in this video which makes me want to watch more from them.
There are no words. How these students are keeping a straight face through this entire thing is just beyond me. One teacher parodies Top 40 songs to introduce new rules and guidelines in her class and the video has gone viral.
