Fashion Week Friday.

To be completely honest, besides a few blogs and articles on Fashion Week, I don’t really follow the event all that closely. But, you see all these “street style” photos of people hanging out between shows and I can’t help but wonder “How much did they PAY for that outfit?!” (sometimes critically sometimes out of pure envy).

Well. This article from Yoodot asked a few attendees that question and here are some of the answers:

75_dollars

  350_dollars

2400_dollars

too_much

priceless

“Priceless”  – I LOVE that answer! For more outfits and prices, click the images above or here. Thank you, Alison at Brown Eyed Style for the link!

… THEN there’s Jimmy Kimmel’s prank … So funny!

The Repeller of Men.

This blogger is amazing. She  just exudes confidence and creativity! I totally want to be friends with her.

Don’t you love the concept behind the name “Man Repeller”? I feel like every girl has a few items/outfits that their boyfriends (or men in their life in general) just don’t get.

Donate $$ to TenDoves.org  or adopt an eagle (Pushing it again, I know… and doves probably wouldn’t appreciate it but… doves don’t seem to need saving right now..)

Check the Weather.

Last week, Refinery29 shared this clever little website that I want to make sure you didn’t miss! It’s called:

One of the things I really like about this website is how simple the design is. Bare-bone and to the point , yet still beautiful!


The website tells you the temperature and then suggests outfits based on the temps! (The location defaults to SanFran but if you click it, you can change it to either where you are or a zip code of your choice) The outfits they suggest (for men, women, or both), obviously and brilliantly, link to where you can buy them. If you don’t like their first suggestion, just refresh and it will give you more options. Seriously! Why didn’t iiiiii think of this?!

While I don’t really expect anybody to visit this site every morning to purchase the outfits of the day, it is a good way to get some style inspiration and possibly find a few new pieces to add to your wardrobe!

Hey, Four Eyes!

So I recently came across a company that I am now obsessed with. I know… you’re thinking… “this is how her blogs always start.” I can’t help it though! It’s true!

Warby Parker is an eyeglasses company that sells super nice/designer style glasses at attainable prices – not just attainable – AWESOME prices! Frames plus a prescription for $95!

But it wasn’t the price that originally drew me/sold me on Warby Parker – it was their business concept! They make it insanely easy the whole way through the purchasing process.

First, you can start out by selecting your face shape and width to narrow down your selection. Then, you can either try the glasses on virtually or have up to 5 pairs delivered to your home – I opted to have the glasses delivered (can you really trust those virtual things?) and a few days later, a super nice box arrived with: Prestons, Webbs, Sinclairs, Zaggs, and one more that I forget…

But anyway, you are allowed to keep the glasses for 5 days to try them out, show your friends, etc. After that, you simply send them back (they provide the shipping label and everything). If you found one you like, you just send them your prescription and buy the frames you want.

Not only do you get awesome glasses for $95… but here’s (one of) the best part(s): For every pair you purchase, they give a pair of glasses to someone in need! Similar to TOMS – but… more fashionable and buyer friendly (in my opinion).

In the excitement of receiving the glasses and the disappointment of none of them being quite right, I forgot to take photos of me in the glasses… kinda a bummer. I would’ve liked your opinion.  If you’re not sure what to think of the glasses you are considering and need advice, Warby Parker even offers to help you find a pair that works for you via Twitter or Facebook! Brilliant.

I am going for that Geek Chic look for my next pair of glasses. The ones that were closest to what I want were the Prestons (below)… but they just weren’t quiiiite right – which 100% broke my heart.  Seriously. I want a pair so bad. I even want to name my dog Warby Parker… Maybe I’ll try their Sunglasses.

Happy Monday! Have a good week!

Haitus Discoveries.

So while I’ve been on my latest hiatus, I have continued to discover awesome, inspiring, and addicting sites that I can no longer live without. It turns out, though, I am a little slow on the uptake on some of them. Instead of writing about each one in a blog post per usual,  I’ll just do a quick rundown so that I can get back into this blogging thing!

Fab.com  New stores open daily at 11:00am – let me tell you… the 4 minutes between when you receive the email reminder and when the store actually opens feels like forever! The stores highlight small designers/retailers of various mediums – furniture, art, tshirts, jewelry, candles, food, you name it, it probably has been on here. It’s awesome to find unique, often handmade, items that you know you probably can’t find anywhere else. There’s even an app to feed my addiction! Here are some of my purchases:

Refinery 29 – so many fashion inspirations, DIYs, and how-to videos (a few of my favorite things!)–  I’m a little embarrassed to admit this but one of their videos taught me how to successfully curl my hair (with compliments from strangers following!!) – Yes, I’m 25 years old and just learning how to do my hair. It’s probably fine.

Pinterest – I’ve actually known about this one for a while but was totally afraid of it – I knew I would be addicted…. And sure enough… I am.  In a lot of ways, it reminds me of how this blog started – as a way to document and share my awesome findings from the internet –  Pinterest is just way diverse, time sucking, and addicting – my favorite qualities! Click here or below to follow me and my boards!

Mumford and Sons– what?! I admitted I was behind the times! Don’t judge.

Spotify – As you probably know, I’m a huge Pandora fan. Huge. But after a long period of putting it off, I have finally joined everyone on Spotify… at least while at work. My car rides & etc. still go to a Pandora soundtrack (Pandora is free…)

Like I said, this may be old news to you – but these are sites (and songs) that I can’t do without these days.  PS. Regularly scheduled posts will return next week.

Style aspirations.

The website I’m showing you today sort of reminds me of “What I saw today,” the website I discussed yesterday…  only a girl version.

I want to be heris a blog that highlights a different women and their style each day. Sometimes the women are sketched, sometimes they’re photos. Sometimes they’re women the blogger knows, sometimes they’re women she simply saw in the supermarket & etc.

The main author of the blog, Andrea Linett, used to be a creative director for Lucky Magazine and is the current director of eBay Fashion. I felt a bond with her immediately when I read in the “About Us” section:

“…I want to be a different woman every day. Sometimes I see her on the street, sometimes I see her in a magazine, but I always want to try her clothes on even if it’s just for one day.”

Love that. That’s totally me. I often get bored with myself and feel inspired by other peoples’ style – even if it isn’t something I would ever consider (slash have the guts to wear). The other blogger, Anne Johnston Albert, is the illustrator and fashion designer. She takes Andrea’s self-described “notebook scratchings” and turns them into visions.

Each of the women featured on the blog get some kind of background painted about them and then different aspects of their style are highlighted. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally inspired. If only I had the funds to revamp my tired wardrobe!

Here are a few of my favorite looks:

Check out “I want to be her!” You may get some new style ideas! Which styles are your favorite?
