Full disclosure: going makeup-free is a rare, rare occasion for us. But we also prefer not to look like we spent hours in front of the mirror. And therein lies one of life’s greatest (beauty) dilemmas. How do you look like you’re not wearing a ton of makeup, but still look awake and well, alive? In a word: strategy. With a few key products and the right technique, it is doable.
Our most recent style crush, Chrissy Teigen, attended a party for her Du Jour magazine cover story last night, and she opted for an appopriately sexy (and trés on trend) look for the fiesta: a completely sheer black button-down blouse over a black bra, paired with a black full skirt, black sandals, and (you guessed it) a black clutch.
RE/DUN, a Los Angeles-based denim house, launched its first shipment of handpicked, one-of-a-kind vintage jeans yesterday and Alessandra Ambrosio is already a fan! The brand is proud to produce jeans that have both vintage character and a modern fit. Each pair is found from a variety of vintage rag houses, then completely taken apart and recreated into one of two timeless shapes at the RE/DUN warehouse. Both styles start around $220 with select sizes available—but don’t worry if your size is sold out, because there is already a waiting list! And we highly suggest adding your name ASAP.
According to Vogue, the latest and greatest advice on working in the fashion industry is a wee bit surprising. Fashion behemoths André Leon Talley and Isabel and Ruben Toledos recently shared what Vogue calls “the best advice on working in fashion you will ever get” while attending a Q&A for the YMA Fashion Scholarship Fund recipients. The super successful trio shared several lessons and tokens of advice, but these two quotes sum up our favorite (and most inspiring) reminder to be humble and remember it’s not a competition.
Largely gone are the days of waif-thin supermodels—now, the ladies whose style we most covet encompass a broad range of body types and figures. With curvy ladies like Kim Kardashian rising through the ranks to achieve modern style star status, having a noticeably tiny waist seems to be something worth aiming for these days.
These aren't your mother's loafers.
Getting dressed for a wedding is tricky: there’s the pressure to look amazing (hello, photo booth), while simultaneously trying to navigate the ever-changing rules of outfit etiquette. Rather than attempt the opinion-laden terrain ourselves, we figured we’d call in an expert to lay down some ground rules. Enter: Melissa Coker, the founder and creative director of Wren, a beloved LA-based brand, which recently launched an awesome “Weddings, Bridesmaids & Parties” section of their site.

>> Following my mammoth Port Eliot post, I thought I’d follow up with something short ‘n’ sweet. This is basically an excuse to post Jamie xx’s new All Under One Roof Raving track, which samples Mark Leckey’s 1999 all time awesome art short Fiorucci Made me Hardcore and an excerpt from the raving episode of Spaced. Fiorucci. Spaced. Jamie xx – all good things. But obviously the subject of this video are these most excellent white leather Ashish and Topshop sliders, made by Buffalo. Again, all good things. The low-top trainers sold out in nano seconds but for some reason, the sliders are still available in a range of sizes, which I preferred anyway. I reserved them in my size about a month ago and then promptly forgot about them but the lovely folks in personal shopping in Topshop Oxford Circus kept them for me until I bothered to pick them up today. Thumbs up personal shoppers! What makes these the utmost of ace-ness of course are the LED lights embedded into the soles. Not just one tiresome pattern of blinking lights, but a remote control that goes through about 10 different modes of blinking rainbow lights, with the ability to control the colour selection and brightness. I’m basically going to be making like Tyres (please watch Spaced if you haven’t done so – you won’t regret it and I can drop more gratuitous references) and bounce around my home raving it up to anything from the telephone to the screaming kids next door.
