July 9: What Are We Wearing Today?

YO. It’s still crazy hot, it just sun-showered (for real!), and we’ve got clothes on. That’s all I’ve got to say. To be honest, I’m more interested in what you’ve got to say. Please, tell me something interesting. But first, do check out what we’re wearing today…

GOOD NEWS, EVERYONE: we can finally fucking give up. You can forget about agonizing juice cleanses, dieting, exercising (I shudder at the thought) … hell, forget about every single obsessive thought you’ve ever had regarding body image. Yes, ALL OF THEM. J Brand is here to save us all, provided we all have somewhere in the neighborhood of $200 to $300 to spare on a fine pair of “Photo Ready” jeans. Quoth Grazia:

It’s an amazing patented technological fabric which basically creates a photoshop’d silhouette, giving the slimmest, smoothest appearance with a unique holding power that is super comfortable and never sags.

That’s right: a “photoshop’d” silhouette. The future is here, and it’s way thinner than you. [The Gloss]

One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Worn Three Ways

One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Worn Three Ways

Those of us who rely on denim for much of our bottom-half needs are often left feeling deserted come summer. Not the kind of summer where there’s a breeze in the air and, more importantly, around our legs — I mean the ninety degrees, one million percent humidity kind of summer, where the only breeze is coming from the arriving or departing subway (and, ugh, it feels so good). Jean shorts and skirts only suffice for so long before a girl wants something to cover her damn knees already. So, for the uninitiated, allow me tell you: boyfriend jeans make the perfect summer foil for those who wish they could sport their skinnies year-round. They’re looser, airier, and don’t need to be peeled painfully from the skin at the end of the day like one big, sweaty denim band-aid. And yes, because they’re jeans, they’re ridiculously versatile — depending on how you style them, you can go from day to evening to late-night (because 24 hours in the summer is like no other 24 hours we’ve ever experienced). Check out these three looks I’ve created around one pair of affordable boyfriend jeans… Keep reading »

The Bling Ring” has already been in theaters for a couple of weeks now, and I am thoroughly embarrassed to admit that I’ve yet to see it. It’s not for lack of wanting to see it — I’ve been waiting on this film for, like, actual human years — but because the majority (75 percent, in fact) of my preferred moviegoing partners are not in the same time zone as me at the moment, let alone area code. And also, maybe just a LITTLE, because I live in great fear of finding myself disappointed by the film based off one of my favorite True Hollywood Stories of all time, not to mention the most transfixing shitshow of a reality TV series to ever hit E! (which, obviously, is really saying something). But I have a bit more confidence in the handling of the stranger-than-fiction tale knowing that Nicki Moore, the character based off of “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers, is in the very capable hands of Emma Watson, who went so Method as to create a Tumblr for the role. As in, a Tumblr from the perspective of Nicki Moore, as penned by Emma Watson… and man, oh man, does Emma hit all the bases. From shoddy cityscape camera phone photos to a touching tribute to Lindsay Lohan and her “spirituality,” NickiMooreForever2012 is pretty much on point. [Crushable]

Must Haves: 10 Cool Cuff Bracelets

Accessorizing isn’t really my strong suit — more items on my person just translates to more items to be lost in a freak incident. Well, not that freak, I lose things all the time. Cuff bracelets are great because they’re substantial, and because they can actually be adjusted to fit one’s (unsettlingly tiny, in my case) wrist, they’re not just gonna fall off while you’re walking down the street or something. This has actually happened to me. Behold, 10 of the coolest cuff bracelets ready to finish off your favorite outfit…

Remind me again why cardboard cutouts of celebrities and film characters exist and are available for purchase? Oh, wait, nevermind, somebody else beat you to it, and it’s whoever made it their life’s mission to chronicle the mundane daily activities of Severus Snape. Aside from teaching Potions, Professor Snape also enjoys sulking on Valentine’s Day, going trick or treating, playing hide and seek, running on the treadmill, and basking in the great outdoors. He even wakes up in strange locations covered in glitter and awash in unidentified pills, like me on Tuesday Saturday morning! He’s just like one of us! Except better, being that he is the Half Blood Prince and all. [Snape Does Things]
