Men's VIP List
Both Women's & Men's VIP List
This week I attended a trend forecast presentation by David Wolfe for my design job. For those of you who don't know what that means – I watched a guy in flamingo print golf pants talk about what all of us will be wearing a year from now. At these gatherings we discuss world events and their influences on fashion. The main focus of this particular meeting? The future and technology. My mind was BLOWN with all the cool tech that's already out and some soon to be released.
Here are 10 facts and wardrobe options to bring you into the future: (more…)
Disclaimer: This post is not meant to be offensive. A dear friend of mine was just diagnosed with cancer.
I went through a strange roller coaster of emotion. Another close friend (who I will refer to as â€˜the informerâ€™) was the one who shared the news with me.Â On a regular night out I received text messages from her reading: “When was the last time you talked to so and so? I donâ€™t know what to say….” Of course my immediate assumption was: â€œDEATH! He died! Omg omg omg why??! No this can't be!â€ (more…)
We love leggings, jeggings, and all that stretchy goodness. Theyâ€™re far more comfortable than any pair of those constricting skinny jeans that we have been magically able to squeeze into. Sometimes not so gracefully with the classic wide leg squat and jump, with fingers gripping Â belt loops upward for dear life maneuver, wondering when would be the day weâ€™d rip one off. Then weâ€™d disguise muffin tops and became pros at sucking in our gut that it became second nature and we actually convinced ourselves we were that skinny. That is, until we got home peeled our jeans off and caught a glimpse of ourselves in the mirror as we exhaled. Ugh. (more…)
Twerking is the booty shaking craze thatâ€™s swept the nation. It's sexual, it's funny and everyone should try it at least once whether itâ€™s in public or private – no pressure. Twerking does not discriminate against men or women, big or small. It doesnâ€™t matter who you are, everyoneâ€™s invited, unless youâ€™re being creepy. If you are new to twerking or looking to improve your current skill follow these tips and tricks. (more…)
The end of the week has finally arrived and youâ€™re ready to let loose and let off some steam.Â You're going to get dolled up just so you can go sweat it all off on the dance floor. Â Guys don't understand that, despite the dim lights of the night life scene, and their preference for “natural beauty” (you know the guys who say they don't like makeup but think Kim Kardashian is hot…um, what?) Â that half the fun of going out is the ritualÂ of applying the war paint to our faces and picking outfits in preparation for potentially running into Hugh Jackman on the dance floor. It's our modern form of meditation.Â (more…)
You know when youâ€™re watching a movie and somehow everything seems to magically work out for the main character in ways that seemingly never happen for you? If your life is anything like mine, all your life changing opportunities are presented at the worst times. The cute guy is standing beside you in the coffee line and youâ€™re dressed like a bum, you get invited to the party/networking event of the century and you wonâ€™t have time to go home and change beforehand, Â Â your pants rip on the way to your interview, or your heels already blistered your feet and your date with your future husband has just begun.
The secret to having those perfect movie moments play out like your dreams is attention to detail and a good attitude. The smallest things can ruin an epic moment. Here is what you can do to prepareÂ (more…)
Dear ladies (and some European men):
Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. Thereâ€™s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didnâ€™t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staringâ€¦talking about â€œit.â€ â€œItâ€ is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)
You want be a Carrie Bradshaw, Serena van der Woodsen, Blair Waldorf or whatever overly dramatic character from Glee thatâ€™s living the glamorous life in the city. Take it from a relatively new New Yorker – itâ€™s not like that. Granted my life is full of dramatic, fantastic, unexplainable events worthy of a Lifetime movie (lookout for the premiere in 30 years) but it's still mostly UN-glamorous. (more…)
Effortless – my favorite word, style and attitude. The secret to happiness and all good things in life is, to simply put it, â€œgive no f**ks.â€ Â I mean think about the ideal woman, a Victoriaâ€™s Secret model, and the ideal man, James Bond. Granted the Victoriaâ€™s Secret models weigh about as much as the average 12 year old and have legs that go on for months, and Bond looks phenomenal in a suit and always has a perfectly chiseled jaw line. Itâ€™s the element of not caring or trying to be cool that makes them both SO cool.
The VS model with her seemingly not styled, messy, tousled bedhead and soft smokey eyes walking around in her lingerie in front of an audience with a flirty smile as if it were any other day and not the average personâ€™s nightmare. Then thereâ€™s Bond getting into to fist fights on top of trains, dangling from the sides of buildings and slipping out of every predicament and into the next without breaking a sweat and keeping a monotone, unamused voice. The ultimate Mr. Cool.
Regardless if you fall into the mainstream standards or follow the beat of your own drummer, as long as you carry yourself as if youâ€™re proud and no one is watching, you can get away with anything.
