Basics… not so basic.

6:57 AM

Basic pieces are such important pieces to have in anyone’s wardrobe. Basics are those perfect staple items that tie together just about any outfit. Referring to football, think of these pieces as the defense line of your wardrobe; although not the flashiest, or the most expensive, the basic pieces are there to pull together your favorite embellished jacket or YSL bag. Consider the basic white tee as the safety of your closet. Think of how it can easily tie together those flashier, or trending, pieces while keeping things balanced. Basic pieces support the rest of your wardrobe.

With the being said, good quality fabrics are a major key in buying any items. Imagine youfind your favorite white tee- it’s comfortable and fits you in all the right places but it starts to pill, fast. When you buy quality fabric, and treat your clothes right, your favorite basic pieces will last you years. Minnie Rose is perfect for finding those quality, basic pieces. You can never have too many staple basics in your closet.

Quay Eyewear x Desi Perkins

Khloe Kardashian Kendall Jenner Bella Hadid Quay Eyewear Desi Perkins

Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, and Bella Hadid are just a few celebs loving Desi Perkins X Quay Eyewear

Quay eyewear emerged from Australia roughly 12 years ago creating notoriously cool, affordable eyewear. The brand has collaborated with multiple influencers, the most recent being beauty YouTube star, Desi Perkins You Tube. The collaboration and limited edition line has since then been seen on Bella Hadid, Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie Jenner to name a few. This leading label sold out in record time in June last year when the Desi line was first launched.

It seems like Quay x Desi eyewear are the only shades to be seen in this summer. The High Key style, as seen on many of the celebs labeled above, has a unique take on the classic aviator. The oversized shades, rocked with a metal frames and reflective lenses, are for the ultimate cool girl. Easy to dress up or down and great for just about any outdoor occasion.

There has been a definite trend of reflective lenses in the last few years. Desi brilliantly combined this reflective trend with classic aviators for an on-trend yet timeless look where traditional meets modern.

We can see why so many celebs are choosing these Quay x Desi shades; they are the ultimate paparazzi blockers. Not to mention, the oversized trend is totally in. And who doesn’t love a good pair of oversized glasses? Did we mention they’re exceptionally affordable too?

Who Wore It Best? J Brand Mercy Jean

11:49 AM

J Brand Mercy Jean Kendall Jenner Kim Kardashian Alessandra Ambrosio Hilary Duff

Lawd, have Mercy!  Hollywood’s “It-Girls” are giving us their best denim looks in the JBrand Photo Ready Mercy Skinny Jean.

Cropped at the ankle and ripped at the knee, the vintage black mid-rise skinny jean is gracing the bodies of the likes of Kim Kardashian, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kendall Jenner and Hilary Duff.  Each fashionista is serving up her own interpretation of rocker glam, further exemplifying the versatility of the Mercy skinny.

Mrs. West roughs up her usual polished look by pairing the jean with a vintage rocker graphic tee and oversized moto leather jacket, while younger sis Kendall following in her sibling’s footsteps with a similar look topped with a beanie.  Alessandra is a little more playful in sneaker wedges and Hilary proves less is more with a simply fringe cross-body bag and booties.

Each embodies the persona of a strong and independent female in her own right. And further proves the versatility of the quintessential black skinny jean.

Screen shot 2015-02-02 at 9.51.40 AM

Leading designer denim label, MOTHER Denim collaborated with international super model, Candice Swanepoel on a capsule collection inspired by 90's street style. The South African beauty directly referenced Cindy Crawford's look from the famous Pepsi ad in which she sported a tight white tank tucked into a high waisted pair of frayed jean shorts.

Furthermore, the Victoria's Secret Angel crowned each style with her family's crest, a swimming swan, for an endearingly personal finishing touch.

Lastly, this collaboration helps to aid the prevention of the spreading of HIV from mothers to their children by partnering with the South African based organization, mothers2mothers. With portions of the proceeds going towards such a noble cause, this collection retains a soulful quality in addition to being fashionably nostalgic.

The 87th Academy Awards

5:27 PM

Is there any Hollywood event more exciting than the Oscars? Capping off an impressive awards season, the 87th Academy Awards saw waves of stars in twinkling gowns full of unique embellishments in predominantly neutral colors like pearly grey, soft taupe, and blushing nude. Occasional pops of red, black, and white broke the pattern as did a few other surprises. Take a look at these memorable Oscar styles, then click on the links to shop through celebrity and trend profiles!

SHADES OF GREY

Screen shot 2015-02-23 at 11.04.41 AM

Laura Dern: Reminiscent of modern day armor, this completely embellished gunmetal gown from Alberta Ferretti commands attention and flatters the “Wild” actress's long and lean figure. The soft blowout and coordinating accessories compliment the styling, though the necklace is one note too many on this already heavily decorated piece.

2015 Grammy Awards

1:11 PM

Unlike the majority of red carpet appointments that stars have to keep during awards season, the Grammy's make for one wildly unexpected show. You never know how crazy, how naked, or how meaty (re: Lady Gaga) the looks will be! Read on to see our favorites and, perhaps, what few tweaks we might've made to perk up this rather subdued parade of styles.

BLACK

Sheerly Striking - Beyonce, Meghan Trainor, & Jessie J

Sheerly Striking – Beyonce, Meghan Trainor, & Jessie J

Beyonce – Proenza Schouler – A plunging neckline and sheer panels throughout gave this long sleeve dress an alluring sensibility while a smattering of diamond and emerald jewels rounded out this familiar look from Queen Bey. We wanted way more drama than what we got from she who was nominated for six awards.

2015 SAG Awards

7:05 PM

Taking a few more risks than their Golden Globes offerings, the stars walked the red carpet in style at last night's Screen Actor's Guild Awards. Get a taste of some of our favorite looks then click the links to shop celebrity profiles and more!

PRINTS

Kelly Osbourne rocked her signature lavender mohawk which paired perfectly with her leopard printed Elisabetta Franchi dress featuring a demure half sleeve bodice. Lupita Nyong'o wowed in a breathtaking Elie Saab gown covered in a spliced painterly floral print with a banded waist and cornrowed updo. In her typically off-beat way, Rashida Jones donned an Emanuel Ungaro black and white dress with turquoise trim that while reading, perhaps, a little too daytime was still a pleasant surprise. Her bright red lip was a fresh finishing touch.

Golden Globes 2015

1:35 PM

The first big award show is behind us so you know what that means – fashion criticism by the gallon. Skim through these looks from last night's Golden Globes then click on the links to find celebrity approved looks and hot new styles to add to your closet!

WHITE:

Kate Hudson – Versace – Arguably one of the best of the night, Kate Hudson nailed this white hot look with its exquisite fit and flawless styling. The plunging neckline would suggest an excellent place for a necklace but Kate intelligently forwent one and allowed the crystal embroidery at the sides to provide a comparable effect. A few more diamond baubles, a white clutch, and low chignon finished this gorgeous look.
