LOL, I must be a masochist because I decided I just had to do a Style Stealer on this super fashion-y outfit worn by teenager Elle Fanning. Because chartreuse coats, jeweled pumps and sheer-paneled blouses are just everywhere, you guys, so this should have been simple. Alas, as you can probably sense from my sarcasm, it was not simple in the slightest and I had to make some concessions when it came to accuracy. The coat is yellow, because the coat that would have been perfect — Topshop’s Boyfriend Coat in lime green — is sold out. And the jeweled pumps? Forget about it, I went with leopard-print because from far away they have the same effect. I mean, I think the outfit I came up with is almost as cute. In fact, it may be cuter if you’re one of the many people who would rather die than wear chartreuse. Anyway, details after the jump!

You know how a new haircut can inspire you to overhaul your entire look? I’m thinking that’s what happened with Jennifer Hudson and her sassy, spiky pixie cut. She’s always been drop dead gorgeous — no matter her size or hairstyle — but once she lopped off her long hair, her outfits got a little more edgy and exciting, too. Jennifer can definitely pull of high-fashion looks on the red carpet, but her street style seamlessly blends classic menswear with fierce, feminine pieces (hello, sky-high stiletto booties!). The J.Hud twist? She almost always throws in something sporty — a satin varsity jacket, drapey jersey tank top, etc, and she loves to play with a color palette of gray and black. Click through to check out seven of Jennifer’s fabulous, post-pixie cut outfits that caught our eye!
I don’t feel like “Do Not Want” really even captures my gut-level reaction to these $455 jean shorts (jorts, if you’re nasty) for men. “Fuck no, stop triflin’” or “Get the fuck out of here with this nonsense” is more accurate. Jorts — that is, denim shorts that have been hemmed, not simply jeans that have been cut off (those are slightly more acceptable, in my opinion, but I’m willing to debate that) — are right up there with mandals and tucked-in shirts for biggest dude fashion vagina killers for me. Oh look, how coincidental, look at how Dolce & Gabbana decided to style their hideous and expensive jort travesty — with mandals and a tucked-in shirt! Everything about this is next level wrong. I’m appalled. [via Buzzfeed]
Call me crazy, but I am loving this bright lavender shade Nicole Richie debuted on Instagram earlier this week. It’s so lovely with her skintone and perfectly aligned with her wild sense of style. What do you guys think? Too wacky? Too reminiscent of Kelly Osbourne? Or freakin’ fabulous and on point for a funky fashionista like Ms. Richie?
Margot Robbie, best known for playing Leonardo DiCaprio’s wife in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” is from Australia, but the outfit she was spotted wearing in Paris this week is as French as her first name. I mean, a striped shirt, classic trench, wide leg jeans, towering wedge boots and glamour girl shades are the very definition of “tres chic.” And because these pieces are all essentially basics, you might even be able to replicate it with items that are already in your closet. If not, we’ve found all the items for you! Get the details after the jump… Keep reading »
Today a very special day, friends. It’s Connie Britton’s birthday! To say we love Connie would be a massive understatement. We are ridiculously obsessed with Connie. As Tami Taylor, she gave us the mother/best friend/wife/sister we always wanted. As Rayna James, she became our new favorite fictional country singer. As Vivien Harmon on the first season of “American Horror Story,” we prayed for her triumph over that scary haunted house. In real life, she’s a Planned Parenthood-supporting badass. There are countless ways we could pay homage to the Goddess that is Connie, but today we’d like to focus on just one of her many, many amazing features: her hair. So many valuable life lessons can be gleaned from Connie Britton’s famous golden mane, such as… Keep reading »
I blinked a couple times in disbelief, jiggling the sliding weight marker on the old school scale in the corner of the YMCA. An inch to the right or left, and it would clank down, but the weight it was balanced on couldn’t be right, could it? If I was doing the math correctly, I’d lost 13 pounds since the last time I weighed myself, two months ago.
I hadn’t been trying to lose weight, exactly. I had tried more consciously to lose a few pounds last year, getting up at 5:30 every morning to work out for an hour, but I hadn’t changed my diet much, so, to my disappointment and frustration, the scale never budged. A few months ago I decided to ditch the goal of weight loss and just start eating intuitively. I still exercised because it made me feel good, but I didn’t go crazy about it.
And now here I was, staring at proof that I was shedding pounds, and I wasn’t sure how to feel about it. I was surprised, happy, but more confused than anything: how could I have lost more than 10 pounds without really noticing? And why didn’t it feel like a more momentous occasion? Keep reading »
The body shape descriptions used all too often by women’s magazines and fashion brands have always felt so limiting. I mean, I’m a little more bottom heavy than top heavy, but I don’t know that I would call myself a pear-shape. I don’t even really like pears. I prefer nectarines and red plums, if I’m being honest. Anyway, that’s why I appreciate the variety of body shapes presented in this lovely infographic from Gemma Correll posted on Medium. My body is seriously feeling like a Broken Slinky this morning, but I’m hoping a satisfying lunch will put me more in Badly Drawn Dolphin territory. [Medium]
