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.

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Role Model: #GIRLBOSS: ROSSON CROW
Artist Rosson Crow paints big, and thinks even bigger. Her large-scale artworks are drenched in color, bursting with energy, and vibrant with character and life…kinda like the artist herself.
In today’s Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS, Rosson talks about growing up in Texas, making art in New York, and why she listens to a lot of rap music while she works. She also discusses some of the challenges of being a woman in a male-dominated industry, and tells us why she’s all for making bad paintings. After all, says Rosson, ”mistakes can be good” so long as you learn something from them. Spoken like a true #GIRLBOSS.
Did you see the last three #GIRLBOSS portraits? Go watch ‘em all now!
Here some of Rosson’s art in case you are not familiar with her incredible work.
Tuesday, June 24, 2014 Role Model: Gals Of Summer: Chanel Castaneda
Chanel Castaneda is a girl who knows how to have fun. Not just in the party sense of the word (although she certainly has that bit down), but in seemingly every aspect of her life. The petite Los Angeles native spends her time pal-ing around with some of our favorite It-girls, including Brooke Candy, Venus X, and stylist Alexis Knox. She is an actress, a model, and a muse, and is best known for her unique and borderline cartoonish take on style: think giant platforms, bleached Barbie hair (currently dyed a dusty pink), and bold, sexy fashion. Check out some of our favorite party snaps of Miss Chanel below.
