Tuesday Tunes

Hope everyone had a good Labor Day weekend! For this installment of Tuesday Tunes we’re definitely needing some upbeat music to get us back into the swing of things. We’ve got brand new tracks and a few throwbacks to get you up on your feet and down with the work week. From Maroon 5 to the Black Keys, to Icona Pop and a little bit of OK Go, we’re ready for our own private dance party. Enjoy!

Fall Fashion Must-Haves!

Fall is just around the corner, and today we’re taking you through our picks for wardrobe essentials for the cooler months ahead!

Cozy Sweaters

sweatersWe love this lightweight, raspberry-colored sweater with its eye-catching lace trim. The cropped hem makes it a perfect transition sweater into fall, and how great is that color! Subtle colors can also be great too, as proven by this J Crew contrast stitch sweater.

sweatersWe’re currently coveting the vintage-inspired short-sleeved cardigans we keep finding online. Our favorite from our shop is this super soft belted sweater from Alythea, but we also love the pimento-green color of this cute sweater from Modcloth.

Boots

bootsWe just adore a great pair of ankle boots, and currently we’re lusting after this pewter-colored Steve Madden pair. A great pair of Frye boots is a must for any fashionista who knows her stuff. We love this pair of tall harness boots that’s currently available on our site!

bootsThis fall season we’ve been coveting lace up ankle boots and we adore this pair Steve Madden boots that have a slight platform. We love the deep plum color, how perfect would they be for the changing seasons! A perfect pair of riding boots is definitely a timeless look and the perfect addition for your fall wardrobe. We love these camel-colored riding boots from Frye!

Wide Leg Jeans

wide leg jeansSkinny jeans have enjoyed a healthy chunk of time in the spotlight, but we’re betting that this fall wide leg jeans will come back in a big way. We love these dark wash Flying Monkey jeans, and although they aren’t technically “wide leg,” it’s a good pair to ease into the style. If the high-waist trend is more your speed, try these from Modcloth! We love the nautically-inspired buttons and super dark wash.

wide leg pantsSpeaking of dark wash… we are also loving these wide-leg jeans from Big Star, and the deeper blue pair from Anthropologie!

Colorful Denim

colored skinniesThe changing leaves of fall definitely call for reflecting those colors within your wardrobe. We love these deep green wax-coated skinnies from Flying Monkey, and these distressed burgundy jeans from Topshop.

colored skinniesIf a more subtle color is more your thing, you’ll love the Alex skinnies from Big Star. However, if you’re ready to splash out a little more with color, try these pumpkin-colored skinnies from Anthropologie! Why do we suddenly feel like a pumpkin spice latte…?

Skirts & Tights

skirt and tightsNothing says fall like finally getting to break out your favorite tights and pair them with skirts and dresses. We love this white structured skirt from our site, and how cute are these feline-inspired tights from Modcloth!

skirtA basic black pencil skirt is a wardrobe essential, but we love the lace overlay of this skirt from our site, and nude tights from Modcloth get updated twist with the delicate polka dots and black detailing at the thighs.

Dresses

fall dresses Just because the temperatures start dropping, it doesn’t mean you can’t still wear your favorite frocks! We love pieces that have more texture or warmth than a light summer dress, especially when paired with tights and leather ankle boots! Our favorites right now include this super flattering and feminine lace dress from Ark & Co, and this vintage-inspired dress from Modcloth.

fall dresses For more casual wear, try this super soft and versatile LBD from Guess, or this houndstooth piece from Nasty Gal!

MTV VMA’s: Our Favorite Looks!

Well, the annual MTV VMA’s have come and gone, and once again we were left with certain red carpet looks sticking out in our minds. Today we’re taking you through our favorite looks that appeared at this high profile awards show.

Nicki Minaj/ Taylor Swift

Jaws definitely dropped when Taylor Swift strolled onto the red carpet wearing this Alphabet-print Mary Katrantzou bodysuit. If it were badly tailored/accessorized, we might not love it the way that we do, but we just adore the daring nature of this piece. Nicki Minaj looked extra sultry in this reptile print mini dress. The loud print and sequined texture was balanced out by nude pumps, long sleeves, and subdued makeup. What do you think of this look from the Anaconda singer? Let us know in the comments below.

Gwen Stefani/ Chloe Grace Moretz

Bright bubblegum pink may have been an offbeat choice for the queen of punk rock fashion, but we’re loving this L.A.M.B. menswear-inspired outfit that mixes a slim cigarette pant and bustier-style top with pointy-toed shoes and monochromatic accessories. Miss Moretz also opted for a menswear-inspired ensemble, with this pale pink and raspberry-colored outfit from Louis Vuitton. We are loving the uneven hem and single-strap heels of this gorgeous outfit from the Louis Vuitton Resort Collection.

Mary Lambert/ Jack Antonoff

Florals and the perfect flattering fit, what could be better! We adore this vintage-inspired look worn by powerhouse singer Mary Lambert. You really can’t go wrong with a great scoop neck fit-and-flare dress with three-quarter length sleeves. We love how she showed off her cherry-red accessories with a cute skinny belt and red shoes! Additionally, we love how Jack Antonoff of fun. showed off a little fashionable flair with a peek of argyle socks. Both Lambert and Antonoff get our votes for best timeless looks of the night!

Beyonce/ Kylie & Kendall Jenner

Beyonce, being the fashionable queen that she is, opted to change her dress more than once during the MTV VMA’s. Although her black red carpet dress got the most attention, we’re loving this raspberry-colored gown by Zuhair Murad. The sequined cutout panels highlighted her figure perfectly, and we love the slight mermaid cut of the bottom half. Love them or hate them, Kylie and Kendall Jenner are turning out to be fashion trendsetters in their own right. We love the spin on the LBD that both of them offered up, with Kendall in this high waist, sheer panel jumpsuit and Kylie in this stunning satin dress that is draped beautifully.

Uzo Aduba/ Julianne Hough

Have you joined the OITNB craze yet? Because we are loving that show, and our favorite breakout star has definitely been  Uzo Aduba, AKA “Crazy Eyes.” She showed us that her actual persona is a far cry from her onscreen role, with this glamorous structured LBD. Perfectly tailored and beautifully accessorized, we can’t wait to see more of Aduba in the future! Julianne Hough chose a midnight blue Grecian-inspired gown by Emilio Pucci for the red carpet. Although it got mixed reviews, personally we’re loving the subtle cutouts and mix of contemporary detailing and classic silhouette.

JLo/ Sarah Hyland

Charbel Zoe.

This sequined gown by Charbel Zoe is definitely extreme, but we’re loving this ice princess-looking gown. Its extreme cutouts and monochromatic styling definitely isn’t for just anyone, but JLo is the perfect fashionista to pull off this look. Modern Family‘s Sarah Hyland showed off her power pose in this deep peacock blue two-piece ensemble. We love the flowing lines of the one shoulder look and minimalist styling. Hyland is definitely one trendsetter we can’t wait to see more of!

WCW: Emma Watson!

Emma Watson is one celebrity that has definitely grown up in the public eye. From her days as a preteen walking the red carpet for Harry Potter premieres to posing coquettishly at Cannes Film Festival, she’s never been afraid to try some daring styles. Today we thought we’d take a look back at her red carpet looks over the years and marvel at the transformation of this:

"Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" Premiere                          to this: Emma Watson

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prabal Gurung/ Bottega Veneta

Emma WatsonIn 2013, Watson stepped onto the red carpet wearing this gorgeous black Prabal Gurung gown and jaws collectively dropped all around the world. This dress is daring and dramatic without showing too much skin. We also love the asymmetrical t-strap heels and her slicked-back hair. A perfect ten! Alternatively, when Watson donned this deep gold Bottega Veneta dress with a corset-style top and architectural skirt, we marveled at how she looked just like a work of art. By over-accessorizing, she could have completely ruined either of these looks, but Watson always knows the perfect amount of detail to add.

Burberry/ Oscar de la Renta

Emma WatsonThis crisp white gown by Burberry was worn by Watson to the Costume Institute Gala at the Met in 2010, and we love its sweetheart neckline and flattering cut. With glowing skin and smokey eyes, Watson definitely made it to some Best Dressed lists that night! At a Harry Potter premiere, Watson donned this pastel grey Oscar de la Renta gown, and had fans gasping with delight. Its rough cut tulle played off her pixie cut perfectly and had us swooning!

Burberry/ Marchesa

Emma WatsonProving that she can rock a mini like no other, Watson wore this structural Burberry mini to London Fashion Week in 2009, and this chartreuse Marchesa mini to the MTV Movie Awards in 2011.

Kelly Osbourne

Candy-Colored Locks

Pastel Can’t decide on just one hue? Try going for a rainbow effect like this beauty on the left. We also love the mermaid feel of the seafoam green style on the right. Too many gorgeous options!

Trend Alert: Beautiful Braids!

On mornings when you wake up late, or just don’t feel like doing the usual hair routine, throwing your hair up in a braid is one of the best ways to look pulled together in a snap. We’ve pulled our favorite braids from Instagram to share them with you today!

@braiding_witch

@umareru_

@beyonce

Braids Oh Beyonce, is there any hairstyle that doesn’t look flawless on you? We’re betting this gorgeous woman could rock a mullet and somehow still pull it off! We adore these braided pigtails, and how the messy, undone look keeps it from looking too schoolgirl.

 

@f_coiffures

Braids We are definitely marking this sweet style down to try! The four-strand braid is eye-catching, and we love how she added the little bow detail.

 

@laurenconrad

Braids If you aren’t already following Lauren Conrad’s Instgram feed, you need to change that immediately. From cute dogs to flawless floral arrangements and shots of the beach, Conrad has a great ability to frame every shot perfectly, and there’s just something that feels luxurious about her pics.
