Tell Your Story Through Style: 4 Tips From “Orange Is The New Black” Costume Designer Jenn Rogien

Tell Your Story Through Style: 4 Tips From "Orange Is The New Black" Costume Designer, Jenn Rogien

Whether you realize it or not, your clothes tell the story of “you.” From night shift nurses who spend their downtime watching college football to working moms who enjoy long morning hikes and good wine, our personalities and hobbies are often reflected in what we choose to wear. Jenn Rogien, the costume designer for hit shows “Orange Is The New Black” and “Girls,” is no stranger to storytelling through style. “Style is a powerful visual expression of a woman, her best traits and the aspects of her life that matter most to her. Each woman, just like every character, has her own story,” she says. “I’m fortunate enough to bring some truly memorable characters to life using their wardrobe as a visual storytelling element.” Jenn has partnered up with T.J.Maxx to help women tell their own style stories, and has four important tips to help women visually express who they are.

Frisky Eats: 10 Bangin’ Breakfast Sandwiches

The key to my heart is through my mouth in the form of scrumptious breakfast sandwiches. Rarely have I met a bacon, egg and cheese that I didn’t like, but some breakfast sandwiches are certainly superior both in taste and in creativity. Recently, I’ve been devouring the Egg & Cheese from Spreads Sandwich Shop, which consists of over-easy organic cage free egg, avocado, black bean chipotle hummus, monterey jack cheese and tortilla chips on a brioche bun. SIGN ME UP, and while you’re at it, find me a gown because I’m about to marry that sandwich. Here are 10 other brekky sammies that will make you drool.

Shock-Absorbent Pneumatic High Heels: I Have So Many Questions

Designer Silvia Fado has constructed a new line of high heels that use shock-absorbent pneumatics, hydraulics, and rubber, and design normally reserved for sports footwear to create an ergonomic high-heeled experience.

I won’t even ask if you can afford buying them because the answer is “probably not”: On Fado’s page for the Kinetic Traces footwear line, there are no prices, just an invitation to contact them if you’d like to have a pair made for yourself (a commercial line will be out later in the year). They are truly beautiful shoes, albeit — to me, at least — kind of intimidating. I’m recovering from a jacked-up ankle and I want none of that. Keep reading »

Frisky Eats: 10 Stews To Make Your Fall Cozier

It’s 65 degrees out in Chicago, and that means it’s STEW SEASON! I get really excited about stew because of the variety of accoutrements you can eat with it — rice, couscous, chips, crackers, bread, potatoes. Plus it’s basically thick soup, which is the best kind of soup, with a lot of meat in it, which is something I really like to accomplish with my meals. Plus, every single culture in the world (OK, I’m speculating, but I don’t think it’s a bad speculation) has some kind of stew, which means that stew can be a culinary adventure!

You can make these on the stove, but let’s be real, guys, one of the great things about stew is that if you happen to have a slow-cooker, you are in for a delicious-smelling home all day. More bonuses: Make a big batch, get some tupperware, and freeze portions of stew, and you have lunch for weeks. Get it in your mouth and let it make you feel all cozy!

Ke$ha Has Jumped On The “Use Your Cat As An Accessory” Bandwagon

I don’t know what it is about these pop stars carrying their cats around in public, but it’s definitely an official thing now. Taylor Swift has been spotted carrying her kitten (charmingly named Olivia Benson) around town this past week, and Kesha carted her kitty around LAX on yesterday because hey, it’s a trendy look now, right? Taylor gets a few extra points because Olivia matches her outfits better, but I’m loving the pink on Ke$ha anyway so we’ll let it slide. How do I get into the cat-carrying street style club? Also, how do they get those cats to hold so still instead of going haywire and hissing? This is a clique I totally want to join. [The Gloss] [Image via INF Daily]
