Tuesday, August 19, 2014 Role Model: Anais Pouliot
Anais Pouliot is well seasoned in the way of campaigns. From Louis Vuitton to Emporio Armani, to Sonia Rykiel and Carven, everyone wants Anais to rep their duds—including us. We couldn’t think of anyone more perfect for our denim campaign than the sultry French Canadian, who was sure to bring her signature spirit and versatility (and who was totally game to jump in a kiddie pool in bell bottoms) to our L.A. shoot. Read on to learn a little more about one of our favorite new faces.
Friday, August 8, 2014 Role Model: Tallulah Willis
Tallulah Willis is one half of our new favorite blog, The Clothing Coven. But today, by way of Refinery29, we’re watching her take her clothes off instead. It’s all part of Stylelikeu‘s “The What’s Underneath Project,” a video series that interviews stylish individuals on subjects beyond brands. As Stylelikeu puts it, the series is about “fearless spirit, not mere clothes.” Watch Tallulah open up about body image, confidence, and why unattainable imagery can go fuck itself.
Wednesday, July 30, 2014 Trends: Boredom Bangs
There are two types of girls: the girls who trust only their hair stylist to touch their hair, and the girls who take their looks into their own hands. Okay, that is ridiculous—there’s actually like a million types of girls. But hair remains to be a contentious issue when it comes to vanity, whether it’s in aspiration of or taking ownership of one’s own vanity.
If you want something done right, do it yourself—makes sense right? And as much as we leave certain primping to the pros (anyone whose first introduction to a Brazilian is via DIY knows this), sometimes you get an itch in a moment of impulsive grandeur to do something semi-permanent to yourself… possibly involving scissors.
Thursday, July 17, 2014 Trends: Collar ID
The 90s were good for a lot of questionable things (like AOL and Hit Clips and 98 Degrees), but the decade also put out a few shining stars. Topping the list is the tattoo choker (along with jellies, Lip Smackers, and mood rings, of course). If you didn’t stack three or four chokers on your neck at all times, you were basically irrelevant. And don’t even get us started on the matching wrist and ring versions of the choker. If you had those, you were the queen. Upon research of tattoo chokers, though, we found a whole world of throat wear (can we call it that? is that gross?) from throughout the decades. Scroll through for some serious inspo and try not to choke up.

Well hello there, new favorite make up line. MAKE might be one of the newest brands on the beauty block, but they’ve already nailed that elusive combination of high-quality products, on-trend colors, and super-cool packaging (v. essential). Also: It’s all paraben free, cruelty free, and never tested on animals. Oh, and did we mention that 10% of every sale goes towards the company’s We See Beauty foundation, especially set up to benefit women-led cooperative businesses? Yeah. Kinda awesome.
