Tuesday, December 2, 2014 Guest Edit: Part Nouveau’s Lipstick History
Lipstick has historically played a role alongside Hollywood’s leading ladies. Take the famous phrase that Holly Golightly emitted when she received a letter from an unrequited lover in Breakfast At Tiffany’s, for instance: “A girl doesn’t read this sort of thing without her lipstick.” In honor of M.A.C’s collaboration with Nasty Gal, Part Nouveau‘s Lilah Ramzi (who’s known for having a keen eye when it comes to how fashion today interprets trends from the past) celebrates a history of lipstick in movies throughout the decades. So slap on your favorite shade and read on!

You know those good hair days that just call for a shameless selfie?

Tuesday, August 5, 2014 Guest Edit: Yasi Salek @ Burger-A-Go-Go!
When it comes to music, the all-girl concept is great in theory, but can also easily go the way of Lilith Fair real fast if not executed properly. But in the case of this past weekend’s Burger-A-Go-Go, the female-centric festival put on by cult Southern California label Burger Records, awesomeness definitely prevailed. It helped that the line-up was robust and diverse, packed full of emerging acts like The Aquadolls, Death Valley Girls, and Feels (hands down my favorite new act, keep an eye on them), heavy-hitters like Bleached, Dum Dum Girls, and Best Coast (pictured above in her highly coveted Jagermeister t-shirt), and Burger sweethearts Colleen Green, Peach Kelli Pop, and Shannon and the Clams. Watching The Muffs play to the super psyched all-ages crowd, many of whom weren’t even born when the band put out their first album in 1993, was pretty special, but the most stand out performance of the night definitely came from Atlanta punk rock princesses The Coathangers. Their raucous, electrifying set almost certainly inspired the formation of dozens of new bands out of the adoring teens in the crowd, and even got this old lady to take a stage dive (I have life in me yet).
Here are some photos (special thanks to Blaque Chris):
Thursday, July 31, 2014 Guest Edit: A Few Things Steak Learned So You Don’t Have To
I just had a birthday and while I’m not exactly sure when your mid 20s ends (and my insecurities keep me from Googling it ), I feel like my time might be running short. They tell you that your teenage years are unlike anything else, and yeah, I guess they’re right. I’ll never be a snot-nosed, pubescent, tangled mess navigating high school again but really that sentence puts waaayyyy too much weight on your teens when it’s in your 20s that your life actually begins to take shape. Here are a few things that I learned in my twenties so you don’t have to.
