Snaps for a Snapshot

Who: Kiernan Shipka

Wearing: Rosie Assoulin

Where: Wednesday screening of “The Blackcoat’s Daughter” in New York City

So no, florals for spring isn’t necessarily groundbreaking, but they are when you’re wearing them the way Kiernan is. I love that this isn’t just a floral printed dress and instead the florals are full immersed into the shape of this dress. Don’t even get us started on those straps. We love it.

Favorites of 2015

Whoops! We’re already two days into the new year so we’re just a little bit behind on this, but we couldn’t move forward with other posts without writing this one first. 2015 was good to us, but we’re even more excited for 2016 and what’s ahead!

Favorite Style Icon: Olivia Culpo

So we have to admit, Olivia wasn’t always on our radar, but in 2015 she kind of came out into her own. After being linked to Nick Jonas for quite a while and splitting from him earlier this year, she started to wear the “single-girl” look flawlessly. We might even go as far as saying that she was the role model for a lot of newly-single girls. She sort of rebounded with Tim Tebow for a bit, but that didn’t make headlines as much and instead she was being recognized for what she was wearing day to day and on the red carpet. Additionally, she’s part of the Revolve Girl Gang with all of our favorite fashionable bloggers!

Runner Up: Kiernan Shipka

Favorite Getaway: Los Angeles

It’s so hard to pick a favorite! This year we went to Austin and Portland for the first time which was so much fun, but honestly spending some quality time with one of your best gal pals and talking wedding stuff with her is hard to top. I loved staying with Gelesia and seeing LA through her eyes. It also doesn’t hurt that we love a lot of the same things and can eat six meals a day together. She also doesn’t mind standing in being my photographer for a weekend – the feeling is mutual though ;)

Runner Up: Austin

Favorite artist of the year: Kehlani

We haven’t stopped listening to Kehlani since we first learned about her this summer. Now, everyone knows that I’m a huge fan of the girl anthems and she’s our poster girl for 2015. Kehlani’s music really hits home to a lot of people which is why she’s actually one of the most successful artists of 2015 said …everyone. I also read this feature on her the other day through The Fader that I would recommend. You can either listen to her music first or read this, whatever the case, you’re going to be sold on her. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been blasting her album on the 101 up to San Francisco and singing at the top of my lungs. In case you haven’t realized it yet – she’s a badass so when you sing like her, you feel like one too.

Runner Up: Leon Bridges

Favorite Guilty Pleasure: The Affair

I know – I can hardly believe that I didn’t select Vanderpump Rules again for the 3rd year in a row. When I was negotiating with Comcast earlier this year, they threw in Showtime for me and I spent that time getting all caught up on this addicting television series. I only had it for 90 days so when the show returns for its next season, I’ll have to ask for this back. I absolutely love love love the show though and it’s crazy because the characters aren’t at all likable. In fact, Noah Solloway is kind of like the worst human being ever and so is his daughter Whitney – jesus. Regardless, we’re hooked and we can’t help it. When I first heard about the show, I thought it was all romance and drama, but now it’s turning into a murder mystery and we don’t hate it.

Runner Up: Super Girl

Favorite item purchased this year: Oak + Fort Scarf C15

I’m never letting this piece go. The first time I saw this scarf featured on Oak + Fort’s Instagram, I knew I had to have it. Yeah so that’s another thing this year, we developed a really unhealthy habit of seeing things on Instagram and then buying it right after. Real talk though, this oversized scarf though sometimes bigger than my entire body is the comfiest coziest piece I’ve ever owned! I love wearing it with my dresses or using it as a blanket when I go out somewhere. You really can’t go wrong. The other day I was strolling through Nordstrom and two people working the floor had complimented me on it… one right after the other in the same department. Even everyone else knows how strong of a piece this is.

Runner Up: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases

Favorite albums (in no particular order):

  1. Kehlani – You Should Be Here
  2. Leon Bridges – Coming Home
  3. The Flavr Blue – Love Notes
  4. Justin Bieber – Purpose
  5. Little Mix – Get Weird
  6. Beat Connection – Product 3
  7. The Internet – Ego Death
  8. Alina Baraz – Urban Flora EP
  9. Miguel – Wildheart
  10. Madeon – Adventure

(We are very happy to see two Seattle groups on here! Well, I mean I made this list so I chose them, but they had a great year!)

Favorite online past time: Instagram

Oh goodness, isn’t it obvious? We love Instagram this year more than ever! If you’re not following me yet, come and join us! You’ll likely see more daily updates there when we can’t always get to the blog itself.

Runner Up: What other apps do we need to be using?

Yow Yow’s Top 10 Posts of 2015

So the funny part about this post is that most of these were not even written by me! They were written by Mandi! So while this just means that I probably need to put in a little bit more work into Yow Yow! (which we all know) – I also want to highlight how proud I am of Mandi. It has been so fun to share in this experience with her and give her an outlet to share her views throughout her wedding planning process. It really has been seamless. Since we’ve started doing this, I know a lot of her friends and family have told her how much they enjoy hearing about her planning when they are afar. I’m glad that Yow Yow! has been a place for everyone to come together, which reminds me that a long time ago, that was one of the reasons we made this blog.

With that, here are our top 10 posts from the year 2015:

  1. I Like Your Style…Kiernan Shipka
  2. Wedding Wednesdays – Finalizing a Venue
  3. Review: Ariana Grande’s Honeymoon Tour
  4. Wedding Wednesdays – Wedding Confidence
  5. Introducing: Mandi
  6. Wedding Wednesdays: Picking a Venue
  7. Wedding Wednesdays: Will You Be My Bridesmaid?
  8. Wedding Wednesdays: Wedding Dress Shopping
  9. Wedding Wednesdays: Hiring a Wedding Planner
  10. Wedding Wednesdays: Guest List

2015 Emmy Awards Red Carpet

Kerry Washington in Marc Jacobs

The Emmy Awards started a half hour before the Seahawks Vs. Packers game so I only got to see 30 minutes of the show, but from what I saw of Andy Samberg’s intro – I probably didn’t miss that much. I did, however, peep the red carpet and tonight’s celebrities, winners, and presenters did not disappoint. This evening produced a lot of great looks that I’m excited to share! Normally, I would not be impressed by this dress if I saw it on the runway, but Kerry Washington is stunning in it.

Snaps for a Snapshot

Rose Byrne in a Burberry Prorsum Dress

The Burberry “London in Los Angeles” event at Griffith Observatory last night was full of just outstanding looks. Usually, these types of events will only garner one look that I will highlight for “Snaps for a Snapshot,” but in this case, there’s no way we can include just one.

I Like Your Style…Kiernan Shipka

It’s the eve of the season premiere of Mad Men’s last season so it only seemed fitting for us to feature the actress on the show who we find to be a style icon. That is none other than Kiernan Shipka. Full disclosure: I’m not a fan of the show. I’ve watched a few episodes with Kevin and friends always ask me if I want to watch an episode with them, but to be honest I’ve never really gotten into it. I can’t believe how long this television series has been airing though. Fans of the show have really watched Kiernan grow up into the lovely teenager she is today and her style has blossomed so we’re very excited to be showcasing it in this post. Just to throw it back we thought we’d intro this post with a photo of a young Kiernan. She’s only 15, but she’s got so much ahead of her!

I may have missed the entire show from being at work and out to dinner, but we’d never miss a chance of covering the red carpet.

Kiernan Shipka x Scene

Her transformation from child star to teenager has been incredible. I don’t think I can recall an awkward red carpet moment for her.

Favorites of 2013

Favorite Style Icon: Alexa Chung

This should really come as no surprise. Since Alexa Chung came into my life, I have always been a fan of her outfit choices. I noticed last year, I selected Taylor Swift, but really – Alexa blew her and everyone else out of the water in 2013. With her new book that we are dying to read and collections of hers popping up all over the place, we are looking forward to what she’ll be bringing to the table in 2014.
