Celeb Halloween Costumes!
Posted on October 29, 2018.
Just as it’s exciting to pick out our own costumes for Halloween, it’s super fun to see what Halloween looks celebrities come up with (especially since they have the budgets to get their costume down to a T!). Whose looks were we loving this Halloween? Read on to find out:
-Joe Jonas was spot on with his Sansa costume this year. Yep, the singer pulled off the female “Game of Thrones” character without a hitch. From the blue velour dress to the red hair, Jonas was right on the money. But, it would have been a little more realistic without the facial hair!
-Rita Ora is another one that didn’t let gender get in the way of the perfect Halloween idea! She dressed up as rapper Post Malone, and hit all the right notes. We’re talking everything from the wild tattoos to the stocky build. She somehow transformed herself completely... amazing job, Rita!
-Kendall Jenner went all 1960s on us, and dressed up as a Fembot (as seen in Austin Powers). She was on point, with a big blonde bob and a babydoll dress. This was only the beginning of the many costumes of the Kardashian crew this year, but this was by far our favorite look!

Fall Fabrics We Love
Posted on October 19, 2018.
Let’s face it — summer has a lot of things going for it, but hands down, fall wins for luxurious fabrics that only work once this time of year is upon us. Corduroy, suede, leather, and so much more make us giddy for pumpkin spice latte season. Here are a few exclusively fall pieces that we can’t get off our minds...
-Rest easy, because we’ve found you the perfect leather skirt for fall. The Blank NYC Leather Mini Skirt is a lovely shade of olive green, and features front pockets and a zip closure. The ways you can mix and match this piece are endless, and the texture reminds you exactly what season it is.
-We dare you to peel yourself out of the Bond Coated Skinny Jean once you’ve put them on, because we guarantee you’ll want to live in them. Featuring dark-washed denim and ankle zip details, these babies are crying out for boots and a leather jacket.
-Corduroy is one of those fabrics we associate with fall from the time we’re kids, but here’s a very grown up take on one of our seasonal faves. The Corduroy Mini Skirt, in a pleasant shade of green and featuring a zip closure, can be dressed down for a casual day at work, or paired with heeled boots for a date (preferably over PSLs).

Royal Baby On The Way!
Posted on October 16, 2018.
Exciting royal baby news, from a new member of the royal family! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have just announced that Meghan is expecting the couple’s first child in the spring of 2019!
This is on the heels of Meghan and Harry’s nuptials, which took place on May 19th of this year. So it’s not an overstatement to say that this year has been a whirlwind for the super cute (and super royal) couple.
While no one really knows if the couple is expecting a boy or a girl, fans are already asking about baby names. Meghan has mentioned to the press that they’ve received a long list of names that they have yet to review.
The media is going crazy over the first glimpse at Meghan’s baby bump while the couple has been touring Australia this week. A slight but definite bump was totally visible under the navy blue wrap dress that Meghan stepped out in on Thursday — the dress actually appeared to show off the baby bump, so it’s clear that the couple is fully embracing Meghan’s pregnancy news.
Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William, has three young children with wife Kate Middleton, so the newest addition to the royal family will have no shortage of other royal kids to hang out with.
With Harry’s red hair and English good looks, and Meghan’s multicultural beauty, we can’t even imagine what a cutie these two will produce. Here’s to a happy, healthy, and safe pregnancy for Meghan Markle!
Red Carpet Trend: Power Suits
Posted on October 12, 2018.
This year’s American Music Awards, which was held this past Tuesday, was full of surprises. One low-key surprise that we loved was seeing oversized power suits trending all over the red carpet.
Host Tracee Ellis Ross killed the red carpet in a soft pink suit set with black lapels, pairing the suit with a dazzling choker and dangly earrings. Although she donned 11 (!) outfits throughout the AMAs, this may very well have been our fave look on her.
Ella Mai’s suit set was minty perfection. The oversized mint-colored suit was paired with a glittery choker, for the iciest of looks.
Singer Khalid showed up in a rose colored, oversized blazer and pants set, and a white turtleneck underneath. We were loving his 80s vibe, and we can’t resist a guy brave enough to wear pink.
And Kathryn Hahn was adorable in a multi-color tweed power dress, paired with red pumps. Everything from the shoulder pads to the button detail was immaculate, and we loved her take on the power suit trend. Well done, Kathryn!
The AMAs gave us lots of trend and style inspo! What was your favorite look of the night?

Just in time for fall’s subtle chill is the cutest sweat-set you’ve ever seen! Sprinkled with glittery silver stars is the cosmic combo of Chaser’s Glitter Star Cozy Sweater & Sweatpants. We’re in love with this set!
The top features a round neckline and star detailing along the sleeves and torso. The pants feature a drawstring waist and a cropped cut at the hems (and of course, also sprinkled with a lovely layer of silver stars below the knee-line).
What’s with our obsession, you ask? Well, we love this set because it’s absolutely perfect for a cozy night in, without the dreaded sloppiness of normal sweats. We also love the adorable print — it’s super feminine and gives off a little bit of a princess vibe. We’ve actually never felt more glam in our sweats. So whether you’re hanging with your BFFs or Netflix & Chilling with your main squeeze, Chaser’s Glitter Star Set will have you feeling super cute.

Hot Movie Alert: “A Star Is Born”
Posted on October 1, 2018.
Sometimes a remake floors the original. That’s definitely the case with the 2018 version of “A Star Is Born,” which was originally made as a film in 1937, and remade into a musical in 1954.
That said, 2018 is the best adaptation of this movie yet, and our favorite kind of star has been born... Lady Gaga has transformed from pop star to big-screen actress! “A Star Is Born,” starring Gaga and Bradley Cooper, was released on August 31st, and Gaga’s acting chops are being praised by just about everyone. Starring as Ally, an unknown singer, we see Gaga without all the makeup, the big hair, or the flashy, avant garde outfits she is so famous for. This definitely plays into her character being more genuine, but it’s her portrayal of Ally and musical numbers that really seal the deal in making her such a clutch part of the cast.
Gaga plays Ally to Cooper’s character, Jackson, who is a famous singer battling his inner demons. As Ally becomes better known, and Jackson’s issues persist, a strain in their relationship develops, and things get interesting. Many reviewers are commenting on the natural chemistry between the two lead characters, and this story has been described as a heartwarming and joyful musical, with lots of ups and downs that pull at your heartstrings. The flick also stars Dave Chappelle and Andrew Dice Clay, making this too good of a cast to pass up.
Go see this movie while it’s still in theaters, and fall in love with Gaga all over again! “A Star Is Born” is in theaters now!!
