The battle of the sexiness

April 23, 2010



Jury’s still out for me on this one, but either way, I’m officially growing my hair out.


Got a light?

(I’m also pretty sure I have those jeans.)

And I must give her snaps for her courageous fashion efforts.

80’s film Cher = total inspiration to me. And it’s weird because her style is so…simple?

Par exemple, Moonstruck:

Her use of oversized menswear and “unsexy” uniform-chic in this movie is just delicious. Oxfords, cardigans, knee length shirt dresses, and of course – that trench.

And now, Mask, otherwise known as the movie where Cher has never EVER looked sexier? High-waisted denim pants and minis, white tanks sans bra, that HAIR, and then there’s the fact that she’s with Sam Elliott who is just, I mean, yeah.

I wasn’t able to find a great picture from the Witches of Eastwick (where she wears some honest-to-god sexy sweatpants and cowboy boots and it’s 8 kinds of awesome) however, there’s this one with all three witches looking like insane sexbombs:

Anddddd…I want a perm?

Romp around

April 7, 2010

If you know me, you know that I’ve long been a fan of the romper as an idea. After all, I like any clothing item that is actually named after what you do in it. While I’ve never been able to successfully wear one, I truly believe that this summer things will be turning around for me on the romper front.

Let’s check out some ideas, shall we? C’mon!

This Steven Alan baby costs 248 bones which is crazytown. But I want it? Give.

This romp from Spool 72 was the most affordable non-vintage one I’ve seen therefore it is clearly out-of-stock. WHYYYYYY.

Built by Wendy. O BBW. You are so consistently awesome yet so you cost so very many dollars. I kind of hate you.

And finally, the most ridiculous one, and the one I want the most via Bona Drag. It is not only a romper, it is also a crop top and shorts? I kind of can’t wrap my head around the fact that something this wondrous exists. Big sigh. Someday my romper will come. Someday when dreams come true.

I will now sell 5 copies of The Three EPs by The Beta Band

I love you, John Cusack – then, now, always.

On repeat alert

March 21, 2010

Even though I think I’ve never experienced more perfect DC weather than this past weekend, I found myself listening to the Jayhawks’ Rainy Day Music record nonstop.

There’s just something about spring that makes me want to listen to twangy alt-country sung by semi-over-the-hill dudes.

Cookie Time.

Dude. Talk about movies that shaped you as a kid. Troop Beverly Hills is one of those movies that if you’ve seen it, I probably like you. If you can reference it as an adult, I probably love you. If you’re like Lindsay and you can recite the entire Cookie Time song from memory, I will actually love you forever.

Related, has anyone seen The Wizard (another young Jenny Lewis vehicle also from ’89)? Because if so, I’d either like to buy you a drink or give you a big wet kiss on the mouth.

Opinions are like kittens

and I’m giving mine away.

Nadia Sarwar has the best style on the internet. There, I said it.


She’s maybe the crop top wearin’, navy and black mixin’ queen of it’s so wrong that it’s just so right?

sweets for my sweets.

So what if the movie was bad. Amelia Earhart is just heartbreakingly awesome.

And as of about 9:30 this morning, she’s my new fashion icon.

I need this skinny leather jacket on my body this very second or I may just perish.

Are you kidding me with this highwaisted trousers and scarf combo? Love at first sight.

And this strangely sexy belted top makes me want to dress the turkey, draw the drapes, pitch a tent, and weed the garden.

Thanks to Jen Miz for the insta-piration!
