Thursday, May 27, 2010 Right Now: What to Wear When You Hit the Beach This Weekend

4462808764_50bd6694ee_b1

With Memorial Day just around the bend, all talk around the warehouse has turned to where to go and what to pack for our respective weekend getaways.

The only prerequisite is water, whether it be the ocean, a pool…hell, even a kiddie pool sounds pretty magical (see below).

Dreaming of being poolside in the sweltering heat…too bad it’s 58 degrees and raining.

While there’s no question that Jane Birkin is the ultimate muse for effortless chic, her sweet yet sultry style seems especially fresh this season with lace, crochet and florals everywhere we turn.

Check out some of the ways we plan on channeling the French gamine:

Even into the dead heat of summer, we never stop looking to the eternally weird and wonderful stylings of Beetlejuice’s goth princess Lydia Deetz for sartorial inspiration.

Seriously, must…find…that…hat.

And here’s what we’ll be wearing along with it:

Wednesday, May 19, 2010 Right Now: Who Wears Short Shorts?

After years of refusing to wear the dreadfully casual short, I officially surrendered a few months back after seeing the mass of insanely cool versions coming down the runway and streets.

Of course now I’m completely hooked, and plan on giving my closet full of dresses and skirts some rest this summer while I rock their bike/scooter/park friendly kid sister instead.

And though I totally plan on showing off my (blindingly pale) gams, Hanneli’s leather+lace-up look is kind of blowing my mind right now.

The question is, which look do you all plan on channeling??
