Wednesday, July 9, 2014 Right Now: Nemesis Babe Takes Sidewalk Snaps at Paris Couture
Fashion weeks come and go, but the Couture shows are unforgettable. Almost as important as the hand-made gowns that drift down the runway are the people who watch and critique them, editors and bloggers and buyers who are usually outfitted in the pumps, tees, and bags du jour. Because we have to work (but still dream in couture), we got photo genius Marie Jensen to document her favorite looks from the street!
Monday, July 7, 2014 Role Model: #GIRLBOSS: SOKO
Our Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS series continues with the freespirited actress and musician Soko, who is all about making her own thing, and doing her own thing.
Raised as one of six kids in a tiny village near Bordeaux in France, where there was “not much access to the city, or art”, Soko knows all about the kind of obstacles that can make you want to give up. The solution, she says, is to follow your intuition, try not to get too emotional, and just have a little trust. Preach, #GIRLBOSS, preach.
Did you see the last three #GIRLBOSS portraits? Go watch ‘em all now!
If you’re not familiar, we’ve included some of Soko’s beautiful music videos for our favorite songs.
Friday, July 4, 2014 Right Now: Stars in Stripes
We could plaster flags all over our bodies, but for this 4th, we prefer a subtler approach. Whether you’re a poolside patriot or watching fireworks from dry land, we suggest pairing simple reds, whites and blues with Budweiser and BBQ. Pulling out that perfect, classic American brand tee isn’t a bad idea either. Because we never want to celebrate our independence from the Internet, we scoured our favorite sites for the best in American attire.
Tuesday, July 1, 2014 Trends: Sole Mates
When heels are too high and flip flops are too gross, Vans seem to be the footwear frontrunner. They’re the kind of shoes you can get sand in, but they also have this strange way of working with every outfit. In Paris, girls go minimal in Vans, skinny jeans, and simple tees. In So Cal, they’re worn from morning skate session until rooftop after party. We rounded up a few of our favorite sidewalk snaps to show you how versatile the shoes really are.

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: Just Dew It
Whether it’s after a morning run or a day at the beach, there’s something undeniably sexy about a little bit of sweat. And now that summer is officially here, it’s kind of hard to avoid. Of course, it’s a lot sexier to create the just-jogged-in look with moisturizer, foundation, and a little bit of lipstick. We had Work Mag EIC (and palm tattoo aficionado), Gloria Noto, teach us how to achieve the ideal level of dewy perfection, no perspiration added.
