Ugh….Fall

Thank you for finally beginning your long-awaited arrival Fall. It’s about time. I get all awkward during warmer months and nearly every summer I make some attempt at wearing lighter colors and saying to myself, “You can totally do this whole girly summer style thing!” Then I just end up feeling fake and frustrated because of the heat. But it’s cooling down! The thing I’m looking forward to this fall is anything but black (though black and I have agreed to remain good friends).

 Tee: Wildfox Couture, Slouchy jacket: Dorothy Perkins, Skirt: TopShop, Boots: H&M, Bag: Zara

All of these pieces and colors would pair amazingly well with an all-black ensemble. I love slouchy pieces paired with simple, leather accessories, just Mary Kate it up then surprise them with sleek leather booties. It’s kind of witchy…

I’m Crushing on Carrie

Carrie Brownstein is one half of Portlandia, one fourth of Wild Flag, and completely awesome. Brownstein’s wardrobe tends to consist of feminine tops, fitted denim and simple-but-chic footwear. Her signature red lips lend to her girly side, and her comedic performance on Portlandia makes her cute. But it’s when she steps on stage to perform that you realize, despite the sweet blouses and adorable smile, this woman is a total badass. She began her career in music (with Sleater Kinney) and it’s clearly her strong suit. She performed with Wild Flag at this years Coachella, and it’s seriously the only festival news I’ll be reporting.

There are so many great performance shots, but I think this one captures her outfit and this outfit best represents her style. It’s so simple, but she pulls it off so well. The question is, what will she wear the second weekend? Enough of my freaky love letter, here’s an outfit and a bit of an inspired remix.

Blouse: Jil Sander

Jeans: J Brand

Boots: TopShop

Blouse: ModCloth

Shorts: Miss Selfridge

Get the Look: Trailer Trash Tracys

I love the video for Trailer Trash Tracys “You Wish You Were Red.” The kaleidoscopic colors are entrancing with the dreamy instrumentals and Suzanne Aztoria’s wonderful vocals. But what I love most, is her makeup.

  • Start by covering the lid and inner corner in a metallic silver shadow. I personally recommend MAC’s Metal-X shadow in Cyber.
  • Using a matte black shadow, draw a line above your crease that extends out past your eye. Creating an exaggerated kind of Edie Sedgwick mod cateye. Bring that line around to your bottom lash line and almost to the inner corner. You’ll want the whole lid to be silver, with black above the crease. Fill in the “cateye” area.
  • Line the top lash line with a kohl liner.
  • If you have smaller eyes, I’d suggest lining your bottom waterline with a white eyeliner to make your eyes appear larger.
  • Apply false lashes, add a single gem under each eye and finish it off with a nude lipstick!

Jason Wu for Target: Fast Fashion for the Hungry Masses

So Jason Wu for Target came out today and can I just say, “whoa.” Seriously.

I’ve shopped Target’s designer collections before, but I’ve never gone on the first day. It was not what I expected. I knew people got excited and showed up early, but I was picturing a few chic sleepy girls calmly picking out their favorite pieces and going on their way. Not at all. It was insanity like I’ve never seen. We’ve all seen the high-end designer sample sales where people line up for hours, rush inside and nearly fight with each other over that season’s hottest piece. But this happening at a Target in the suburbs? Fast Fashion may not be as wonderful as I previously thought.

Fifteen Minutes In

I woke up bright and early, made my way out to my nearest Target just a few minutes after it opened and there was nothing. People had lined up an hour or so before (7am on a Sunday does not exist to me) and rushed inside once the doors opened. I spoke to some of the girls shopping and some of the employees to find out what I’d missed. Some of the first people in were eBay sellers. They grabbed handfuls, ran to the registers and spent thousands of dollars. Everyone else just began snatching up what they wanted. I overheard one frantic girl say, “I’m just grabbing my size, not things I like.”

The fitting room line was SERIOUS

 After wandering around the now barren Jason Wu corner, I made my way over to the fitting rooms. People had lined up with carts full, employees were calling out when a room opened up and the next girl would race in. Girls were climbing over the counter and grabbing for the items that needed to go back, employees were calling out when someone gave up a popular item. One found a scarf and held it up, five girls jumped at her in an attempt to snatch it. Once everyone had gotten in,  a group of girls had gathered around like vultures waiting to take pieces people didn’t want. Several of them recognized each other from the Missoni release and began comparing finds. These girls were clinging to this stuff like they’d discovered treasure.

Some of these people had never heard of Jason Wu before his Target line was announced. So why all the insanity and obsession? A majority of these girls didn’t even really care about fashion, they just liked the excitement and the accessibility to something hyped up to be rare and limited. I managed to find one of the satchels that someone had left behind and planned on buying it as a souvenir, but gave it up to a girl who came up to me in tears and asked if I was seriously going to buy it.

But I did get a lovely red blouse, and that is it for me.
