Tuesday, July 15, 2014 Right Now: Pillow Talk

enignum-wooden-canopy-bed-3004

It’s time to dim the lights and celebrate nappy hour! This week, BOLD Room LA is kicking off NAP TIME, because shut eye should be an all-day thing. Our sleep-happy friends are turning the DTLA gallery into a dream room of cloud-like beds by VVOODS. NAP TIME runs through July 18th, from 11 am to 6pm. And for those who are looking to catch some Z’s after hours, come out to CLUB NAP on July 17th from 7pm to 11pm. Imagine that one amazing scene from Sex And The City where all the girls go to Club Bed and don’t even seem to appreciate how cool it is that they’re partying on actual beds. It’s like that but probably a lot better.

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 Right Now: A Different Kind of Instagram

http---makeagif.com--media-7-15-2014-7IO5s8

In the digital world, it’s hard to see beyond strategic selfies and personal promo. But Marissa and I believe that Instagram and Twitter and all of those things can be pretty useful. A few years ago, the two of us created personal Instagram accounts, where we posted pictures of our crazy outfits and cool friends or, in my case, my really good-looking golden retriever. Instagram was fun, but not exactly professional. Then, Marissa had a genius idea and within a couple days she had Cur8ed, an Instagram profile where she posted her favorite editorials and reinvented them on her own body. It was genius and I was jealous. So, on a car ride with her, Marissa encouraged me to start something too. Fast forward a few months and I was the proud owner of Copy Lab, something I’ve deemed “a social experiment on taste and perception” but is, in all reality, Photoshopping designer goods onto famous paintings. Instafame still hasn’t hit either of us, but we’re having fun doing it, and it’s a lot more fun to create original content than it is to take millions of selfies (eventhough, yeah, we still do that on occasion). Marissa and I had a conversation about all things Insta a few days ago and thought we would share! –Chris Rellas

Tuesday, July 15, 2014 Trends: An Ode to the Crop Top

tumblr_n5s2ogAfvR1s7xduro1_500

It started with the Spice Girls. Like most brown-haired British girls growing up in the late ‘90s, my childhood was spent arguing with my schoolmates about whether I was more of a Sporty or a Posh. Posh had her charms, certainly – the LBDs, the pout – but Sporty could backflip. Sporty had a gold tooth. Sporty wore track pants and crop tops. In my nine year old mind, something about this aesthetic registered, and it resonated. Still too young to buy my own clothes – especially ones that revealed acres of flesh – I banked this look somewhere deep in my internal #inspo folder (those primitive days before Tumblr!), to be referenced at a later date.

When that day finally rolled around, the crop top was thankfully still in vogue – albeit in a new form. By this point, All Saints were the trend-setting Brit girl band of the day, and I quickly set about copycatting their look: Baggy, low-slung combat pants, Adidas shell toe sneakers, and a cotton tank top, cropped several inches above the (exposed) hipbone. This lower abdominal exposure was less forgiving/tasteful than the upper ab region we’ve taken to showcasing now, but I committed to the look regardless. For much of my adolescence I was happily walking around with my kidneys (and often, underwear) exposed, until one day my style-conscious Dad took me aside and pointed out that “sometimes it’s more flattering to cover up.” Ouch. OK. Point taken.

Monday, July 14, 2014 Right Now: Grin and Bare It

Anna-Maria-Jagodzinska-by-Mariano-Vivanco-for-Vogue-Turkey-MFH11

It’s Monday and we’re in the mood to be nude. Why, you ask? Because it’s National Nude Day. While our 7th favorite holiday encourages individuals around the globe to disrobe, there are unfortunately some legal consequences for doing so. So, in an effort to partake in the scantily-clad celebration without getting arrested (because frankly that is just not the way we’ve imagined being naked in handcuffs), we’ve rounded up our favorite stuff to celebrate being in the buff. After all, nude fashion can be more liberating than the actual thing. Imagine all those double takes you’ll get.

Saturday, July 12, 2014 Right Now: Doing It White

238215

We just talked about the ever-changing little black dress. So, in an effort to be fair, we’re going to recognize the other side of the spectrum. Tons of people already ascribe to #ALLWHITEEVERYTHING, but it’s not just about head-to-toe monochromatism. People like Ivania Carpio surround their lives in white, adorning themselves in minimal accessories and designing their living spaces to look like that scene in Charlie’s Angels where Natalie sneaks into Redstar’s computer in an all-white unitard. No one ever gets that reference, so here, watch. We rounded up some inspo images in case you’re thinking that white might be the non-color you’ve been looking for!
