JOYRICH X THE SIMPSONS SS14 Collection


L.A. via Tokyo label JOYRICH has teamed up with iconic cartoon classic The Simpsons for a sweet-as-fudgesiciles spring/summer 2014 collection. This year marks the 25th anniversary for The Simpsons, a.k.a. longest running cartoon show in TV. 

The show that just oozes 90s pop culture iconography makes the collaboration with JOYRICH all that more perfect thanks to JOYRICH's rep for creating street wear with childlike-but-like-in-an-ironic-way sensibilities.

This shit is cute and goofy so you should cop that likerightnow.

OBSESSION: Metallic Name Necklaces


One of my big accessory obseshies for the summer is metallic name necklaces. 10 summers ago, I got my first necklace of the like at Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem, PA. It was a gold necklace that had the name "Susan" written out. 

I still have that necklace today, and cherish it a a childhood keepsake. So, I'm super stoked that I stumbled upon the site ONecklace.com where they do tons of personalized necklaces. 

I opted to get another "updated" name necklace for myself as more than often, peeps refer to me as Susie G. I went for a silver this time around, 'cause, why not?

The necklace is delivered in a nice gift box, and the necklace fits perfectly! PS - I choose the "Carrie" style for my name 'cause it was one of the more few classier options to pick from.

Warby Parker Likes Gangs, Ballet and Coney Island (VIDEO)


Gangs, ballet and Coney Island: three things that go seamlessly together, amiright?

Socially-conscious eyewear brand Warby Parker thought so too, so they put together this short video around their new Ocean Avenue collection.

The film was inspired by the cult classic The Warriors which everyone knows is all about NYC gangs outfitted in redic motifs and culminates at Coney Island.

My review on the film - the styling is aiight, like the way it was shot, but nothing is captivating/inspiring about it.

But let's talk about the actual collection itself. It's actually pretty cute and perfect for the summer season.  Light-hued frames and lenses give the collection an airy quality to them, making them a great accessory to any easy going summer outfit. Do yourself a favor and check out the entire Ocean Avenue collection of eyewear and sunglasses.

And if you're up to it too, feel free to check the collection's video short below:

Fashion Film Love: "White Mischief" by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia


Peggy Moffitt, eat your heart out. 

For Vogue Italia, one of the best fashion photogs around Steven Meisel has put together a photoshoot-cum-fashion-film. It's a fairly simple video, but has solid styling, a well casted model, beautiful cinematography and great make-up (latter much due to make-up queen Pat McGrath). 

Whites are a big trend for the Spring 2013 season - same was also said for probably the last 3 spring seasons. But, there's a definite je ne sais quoi with this video short that just kind of gets to you - and it's not the obvious seasonal trend Vogue and SM are pointing out.

Maybe it's the British voiceover? Maybe it's the jumbling imagery that quickly switches glides into slow-mo portrait shots. Either way, there's an unsettling yet charming quality about this fashion short.

Enough yapping - check it out:

Coachella 2013: What to Wear in Indio



So Coachella is coming up and I am not going. Wish I could though. Just for the parties though, duh. Not much of a let's-stand-outside-for-hours-to-watch-bands-we-can-barely-see-and-pay-a-lot-of-money-to-do-so kind of a person - I prefer small, intimate clubs instead. 

But for those of you who are happening to head out there (hopefully you're a SFVIP or planning on being on drugs the whole time, otherwise I don't really see the point of going), I decided to offer you kids some packing suggestions. And by kids I mean ladies.

Check out my hodge-podge of suggestions, broken out by different style motifs 'cause why the flip not?

For the Color Blocker...


Color blocking is just a fancy way of putting random colors together in a minimalist package - a great opportunity to see just how much you can get away with (like a white lip).

For the 60s Madison Avenue Meets Beverly Hills Glamouratti...


You can't go wrong with creams,  peaches and nudes for this trend.

For the Sporty Futurist...


The wet and slicked-back look and I guess even nude make-up are often synonymous with a sporty look but I still think you should rock a bold lip and have some rouge on your cheeks (to make your cheekbones look defined, and also to make it look like you have been active) but keep the eyes simple.

For the Graphics on Graphics on Graphics Lover...


I'm fine going crazy with graphics but at least keep the accessories somewhat minimal - or just go the other end of the spectrum and fuck all the rules.

Chilli Beans Sunglasses in Style OC CL 1215; Diesel Printed Oversized Shirt, $249.38, at ASOSTsumori Chisato Flower Photo Print Trousers, $475, at Opening Ceremony; Juju Maxi Sandals in Silver, $30, at American Apparel; Alexander Wang Tri-Fold Bag in Printed Metallic wit Rhodium, $850, at Alexander Wang, Topshop Edit Trend Collection Eye Cream Quad in Game On, $24, at Topshop.
