Want It Wednesday: Shine with Metallics

Metallics can be a little bit tricky; in their worst incarnations, the finish can look cheap and tacky, but when a metallic is good, it’s something you can wear no matter the season or time of day. Because we’re in one of those oh-so-delicate seasonal transition periods where a good metallic is worth its weight in literal gold, we’ve used this edition of Want It Wednesday to round up our favorites.

Ok, I didn’t know who Sigmar Polke was before I saw his work on Instagram…

But please don’t judge! The point is, it peaked my interest. That image had such incredible colors that I had to have more.

He is known for giving pop art a sharp political edge. He was a painter, photographer, and printmaker and one of the founders of the Capitalist Realist movement in the 1960s.

Lucky for me, there is a Sigmar Polke retrospective happening at the MoMA! I know where I’ll be this Saturday: taking in some German art inspiration!

Real Talk with Megs: Sometimes I’m Scared to Carry My Nice Bags

Real Talk with Megs: Sometimes I’m Scared to Carry My Nice Bags

I feel like a hypocrite, because when anyone asks me about carrying something fragile or light-colored, I always tell them that bags are meant to be worn – and they are. But I have to be honest, when it comes to some of my favorite luxury bags, I’m afraid to carry them. It’s not every bag in my collection, but there are a few special ones that I tend to hold off on carrying for what I deem “special occasions.” They’re bags I’d never take on a plane or to run errands or for any form of everyday use. I tuck these bags into their dust bags and boxes after I use them and only turn to them when I think I can carry them and treat them nicely.

These bags include: my Hermes Birkins, my calfhair Celine bag, an exotic bag from The Row, my pristine Chanel 2.55 and more. These are bags I treasure, each has its own story, and I never want to treat them poorly. But carrying a bag shouldn’t equate with treating it poorly, so why do I end up feeling that way? Part of it is the price of these bags. The more a bag costs, the more likely I am to baby it. Another factor is the materials used; when it comes to my Celine Trapeze, I worry about ruining the calf hair as it rubs against my body. If you pair my trepidations with living in a busy city, where birds are flying around, rain seems to come without notice and millions of people are around you at all times, it sort of makes sense why I worry a bit.

In the past few months, I’ve forced myself to use my “nice bags” more frequently and with more ease. I’ve been doing a good job at it, though when a scuff ends up on my bag, I find myself cringing (which is an entirely different post). I think much of this reaction comes down to how I was taught to treat the things I own; my parents instilled a level of appreciation and respect for items that we had. Plus, I’m really anal about keeping my bags looking good.

I must not be alone in this, there must be plenty of you who buy certain items and save them for special occasions, or maybe you saved up for months to buy a certain bag, and now it rarely leaves the comfort of its dust bag. I can tell you that I sympathize with you, and I struggle with the same thing at times. I still end up putting my nice bags away and get a little skittish over the thought of anything happening to them, but like I always tell others (and myself), bags are meant to be carried and loved.

How to Wash Your Face

Ever since I stopped using water on my face, my skin is doing much better. My routine is simple: I use nothing but micellar water — I’ve even stocked up on several different kinds to test out!
But most of the girls around me wash their faces with water. It’s usually because they feel like they need water on their skin to feel clean, and I can understand that. It took me months to get used to not feeling that splash on my face. Alex, for example washes her face with water everyday, so we thought it would be a good idea to talk a little bit about cleansing with water. To each her own, right?

- Garance

I love to wash my face (I’m proud to tell you that I’ve been sticking with my 2014 Beauty Resolution of washing my face and taking off my makeup at night! It feels pretty good not having mascara marks all over my pillowcases). I love that clean feeling and when I wash my face, I use water and sometimes I even use one of those cleansing gadgets (I know, it goes against everything Garance does… maybe it’s because I’m American?).

Anyway, I realize that despite loving to wash my face, I’m not a pro. For those of you that might need more of a helping hand in the face washing department, I went to facialist Joanna Vargas. She already gave you some tips for tips for in-flight skincare (which I follow, religiously) and here she breaks down everything you need to know about having a clean face…

Let’s start with the basics: what temperature should the water be for washing your face?

The temperature should really be tepid. You don’t want it to be too hot or too cold. Extreme water temperatures tend to dry out the skin or could cause an eczema type reaction, especially in the winter. You want to keep it mild.

Is there ever a time when washing your face with water should be avoided?

There are a lot of times when people travel and the water might be harder in other countries, that could make your skin breakout. In those situations skipping water on the face it totally appropriate.

Garance doesn’t wash her face with water. Her dermatologist said it would be better for her if she didn’t use water because it was breaking down her natural defenses and she was producing more sebum. What is your opinion of this? Can you get too clean, resulting in stripping your skin too much of oil?

You can definitely overstrip the skin in many ways. You can over wash your face by washing it too many times a day. If you use water that is too hot you can also strip the skin of its natural oils, but very few people have a water sensitivity, so I would first make sure you weren’t doing these things first.

When should you be exfoliating?

Exfoliation is the key to having great skin. Spring, summer and fall, you should be doing it twice a week. In winter, just once a week. Use a circular motion, when you are exfoliation you’re applying more pressure than when you just cleanse. I like it when people use an exfoliant that is both a physical exfoliant, so it has some sort of a scrub, plus something that has enzymes and lactic acid. The dual method of exfoliation is really amazing for skin. You can resurface the skin and also slough off the dead skin cells and really wash them away.

What’s the biggest difference between washing your face with dry skin versus breakout prone skin?

It depends on the type of skin that you have. If your skin breaks out, washing your face twice a day is really important. If your skin is very dry, you’re not really going to want to wash your face in the morning because it is just going to dry out your skin more. Splashing water on your face is perfectly fine for super dry skin. For dry skin, I would wash my face in an upward, circular motion because it will bring more nutrients and circulation to the skin. If you have skin that tends to break out, I would wash my face in a downward motion, with downward circles. It will help your skin take away all of the waste.

Lymphatic drainage is the process that brings nutrients and carries away waste. If you have blocked lymph nodes in the face or the neck, you’re going to have kind of chalky, dry skin or skin that breaks out. The chalky, dry skin means that the part of the system that is bringing nutrients is blocked. If you have skin that breaks out, the part that carries away waste isn’t working properly.

What do you think of cleansing gadgets? [Editor Note: This has been a big debate here on the blog-- remember this post?]

It depends on the gadget, but yes they will give a better cleans. It’s really a great way of keeping your pores cleaner, you get a little bit of exfoliation when you use the devices. I like it for everyday because it helps products penetrate better.

How do you know you’ve gotten everything off, that your face is really clean?

I always encourage clients to consider themselves the best judge of products and how they work. If your face doesn’t feel clean to you, it probably isn’t. For me, most clients prefer a foaming face wash because it does make the skin feel squeaky clean, it gets off makeup really easily. My foaming face wash contains an exfoliant in it as well. It doesn’t have granules or beads, but has an exfoliating agent to keep the pores nice and clean and to feel like you’re washing away fine lines.

What’s the best step to take after you are done cleansing, what should you apply first?

I love applying a serum. Serums are great because you can really customize them for your skin type and especially moving into warmer weather, you want something really concentrated that delivers great nutrients to the skin without it feeling like the skin is suffocating. I’m a big fan of serum and then a SPF.

What’s the biggest mistake people make when it comes to washing their face?

I think that people don’t really get that it’s a very important step, so people don’t do it for long enough or they have nights when they skip it. Cleansing your skin before bed is absolutely, 100% necessary. If you don’t wash your face before you go to sleep, you’re not giving your body a fair chance to repair itself while you rest. Your skin is your defense system against sun damage, against pollution, you need to cleanse in order for your skin to do it’s job properly.

Spending a few extra seconds working cleanser into your eye area, so you get all your makeup off is important. You only really need to cleanse your skin for two minutes. I think most people average around 10 seconds. If you really spend a good two minutes, really working the cleanser into your skin and taking extra time rinsing at the end, you’d be surprised at how much healthier your skin would be.

What are some key ingredients to look for in a cleanser?

Across the board, I like a cleanser that includes some sort of exfoliating agent in it. I have an ingredient in my cleanser called Galactoarabinan which is a natural ingredient derived from the larch tree. Not only does it cause more cell turnover than a lactic or glycolic acid but is also an anti-inflammatory ingredient. You’re getting a lot of cell turnover without making the skin super red or sensitive, so it’s safe for all skin types. I like things that have anti-inflammatories because it becomes more universal. I think it’s a bit tedious to think of skincare in terms of this is for acne, this for dry. In general, everyone needs good exfoliation and good cell turnover on a daily basis.

How do you wash your face? Do you use water? A gadget?

Los Angeles, an intimate backyard, some transparences on my dress and jacket from Styligion and a camera.. Those simple moments I can’t live without.

Non era che un sereno pomeriggio di ritorno a Los Angeles, il posto Che ultimamente chiamo casa.
Un giardino, trasparenze sul mio vestito e giacca di Styligion e una macchina fotografica.. Quei semplici momenti a cui non rinuncerei per nulla al mondo.

Dress of the Year

>> Last year in May, I revisited and reminisced my teenage memory of Bath, and namely the wonderful Fashion Museum, where I distinctly recall pressing my 14-year old nose up against the glass so that I could better see an 18th century mantua court dress.  Who whudda thunk (yes, it’s a whudda thunk moment…) then that over a decade later, my own mug would be in a display at the Fashion Museum.  You might have already heard that I was asked to select Dress of the Year for 2013.

No surprise that I took the first opportunity to rectify what I thought was an omission from the DOTY line-up with my choice of a dress from Christopher Kane’s S/S 13 Frankenstein collection.  When it was announced that Kering would take a major stake in Kane’s business, that was a crowning point of Kane, and moreover London’s ascent in the industry’s eyes.  It’s no longer a will-skip but a must-see city in the roster of fashion weeks.  I could have chosen any one of the stellar designers that have emerged in London with not just creative output but sound commercially viable businesses as well,  but Kane obviously sticks out as London’s head boy designer.  No need for me to re-gush and re-labour my support for Kane – I’ve written reams already and I wear his wares consistently, which is how I put my money where my mouth is.  This dress with its components of anarchic black gaffer tape, sweet white lace, pretty pink crystals and a foundation of even prettier pink organza is a perfect example of the way Kane avoids design cliches, busts up conventional style genres and goes so outside of the box, that you end up at an entirely new place you never thought would work.  But it does.  It always bloody does.

To go with the dress, I paired it up with other London designers that are marking out their own idiosyncratic territory to showcase the diversity of talent that is coming out of the city – a signature pink pencil cap by Nasir Mazhar and a pair of liquorice neon bead shoes by Sophia Webster.

The decision to place an outfit picture behind the mannequin itself was to illustrate the odd nature of my being a selector at all.  In amongst the very impressive roll call of names who have selected dresses over the years – Vanessa Friedman, Sarah Mower, Alexandra Shulman, Hamish Bowles – I do stick out somewhat.  As an interloping bloody blogger (as some would like to see us) and moreover as someone with an unconventional induction into the industry – together with consultant to the museum Iain R. Webb and curator Rosemary Harden, we thought it might be interesting to contextualise DOTY.  If Christopher Kane’s selection is representative of a changing shift in the order of fashion cities where London has become more pre-eminent as a breeding ground for young talent, then me choosing this dress, is also representative of a changing media landscape in fashion.  The way we read, consume and find out about fashion has become splintered, sprawling and faster than ever with a multitude of platforms and sources coming at us.

P.S Thank you to Christopher Kane for providing a really ace quote to accompany the display.  ”It’s a huge honour to be selected for the Dress of the Year award at the Fashion Museum in Bath, the dress means so much to me.  It’s a really good mixture of both tough and sweet.  It’s a remarkable dress chosen by a remarkable woman.”  *Blush* *Blush* *Blush*

P.P.S. Thanks to Rootstein for creating the mannequin with a razor sharp straight cut fringe and make-up that is doesn’t detract away from the bejewelled dress.  It’s my Kim Catrall in Mannequin dream come true!
