Men's VIP List
Both Women's & Men's VIP List
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.
Here are 10 things to try to look like youâ€™re NOT trying: (more…)
Summer has officially arrived in New York City. Everyone is breaking out their shorts, breezy fabrics and flirty dresses. This summer is the summer of prints and brights. Loud, fun, obnoxious, novelty prints and bold, saturated colors. Prints of all kinds including florals, animal, skulls, paisley, preppy, you name it. I myself love bold abstract and tribal statement prints. Itâ€™s a great way to stand out in NYC.
New Yorkers are all in an unspoken competition to see who can stand out the most and make a statement. Life here is about celebrating individuality and having others notice and acknowledge it. But in a place where the competition and ambition are high, no one will notice you if you donâ€™t give them a reason to. Â Incorporating a colorful print into your outfit is a simple eye catching way to spark interest. Â Check out the bright summer prints on these street stylers in Little Italy. (more…)
I LOVE vintage everything. The idea of a vintage piece that has stood the test of time and lived to tell a story about it fascinates me. The garments and accessories from past decades reflect the mood of the people, the advancement in technology, political drama and social standards. Through time loosened whale bone corsets, shorter hemlines, burned bras, acid wash jeans, and men with lipstick have become socially acceptable, though not without controversy and drama.
Why the constant push for change? Because fashion loves drama, drama is entertainment, and entertainment is money. After all, it's money that makes the world go â€˜round. And although past trends may resurface there is always a new modern twist. Fashion will continue to push social boundaries so long as people can be offended and technology advances.Â (more…)
Have you ever seen that episode of Family Guy where Peter wishes he had theme music that plays accordingly with his life situations? How cool would it be to have your own theme song that followed you throughout the day and changed with your mood and surroundings? It would take a lot of the guesswork out for the people around us. Thatâ€™s what we do with our daily style in a way- we send a message out to the people around us what kind of mood weâ€™re in. But with the amount of black I wear daily people would probably assume that Iâ€™m either perpetually depressed or that I donâ€™t like to sort laundry.
Whenever Iâ€™m getting dressed and piling on gold accessories with one of my many moto jackets, I imagine some cross between Linkin Park and Shakira playing in the background (still keeping my fingers crossed that theyâ€™ll get together for a collaboration). For the rest of the day I have some dramatic mysterious beat following me while I people watch from behind my sunglasses. (more…)
Every major music festival has a “type.” What we mean: you won't see someone jumping up and down in a florescent tutu, fringe bikini top and plastic sunglasses at any other music festival than Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC)…and maybe Ultra. Coachella, however, falls on the other end of the festival spectrum. You can express your style in a more peaceful and laid back manner. If you're into street style, boho-chic and flower crowns then keep on reading. (more…)
