Monday, January 13, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Bad Bishes
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“Can I just be real for a second? Even though I will forever have a thing for Mick Jagger’s moves (who cares if he’s 100 years old?) and can’t get enough of those weird-ass, crystal-encrusted Margiela masks Kanye’s been wearing, the ladies always do it better. So I thought I’d pay homage to the greatest femmes to ever grace the stage. Yup—hide the dudes and prepare to sing the hell out of the ultimate guilty pleasure playlist featuring Whitney, Britney, Debbie, Diana, and even a little Dolly. This one’s for the gurlzzz.”

Monday, January 13, 2014 Guest Edit: Steak At Agenda Long Beach
Anyone who’s anyone was at Long Beach Agenda this week. JK, it’s pretty much just my friends, industry peers, and some hot blogger chicks who are still nursing their hangovers, but whatever—they’re everyone to me and this post. If you’re unfamiliar with Agenda, it’s best explained as an invite and industry-only trade show where brands come to showcase what they’ll be releasing to the public over the next year. Attendees range from press outlets to big box buyers who shop for new brands and find out about upcoming drops and trends. If you put the business stuff aside, you’ll see a bunch of young movers and shakers in town for a few nights catching up, trying to forget the 13-hour florescent-lit work day with a few beers and then waiting outside a hushed-up venue in the wee hours of the morning to catch some secret show the event has lined up. Agenda is awesome before you get there, grueling during the daylight hours, and awesome again by the time you leave.
Monday, January 13, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Doodler Extraordinaire Hattie Stewart
It’s not often you stumble upon an artist who calls themselves a “professional doodler,” but Hattie Stewart is certainly in a league of her own. The London-based illustrator has T-shirts, shoes, totes, and even dinnerware with her designs on it, but–we have to admit–one of our favorite Hattie creations are her balls-out magazine doodles. Seriously, take a gander at just a few of her trippy cover takeovers, and you’ll never, ever look at Vogue the same again.
