High contrast colors and bold graphic prints ruled the streets of Milan during fashion week and, as usual, our girl Nemesis Babe was in the thick of the vibrant action. She sent us some of the crowd’s most decadent looks for us to feast our hungry eyes on.
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.
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.
Fabliha and Tasfia Reza are the 20-year-old Australian twins behind Inside In, Inside Out. Science students by day, the twins use their blog as an in-your-face creative outlet. Their look is experimental, combining mixed prints with bold color. Fabliha describes her style as “whimsical and quirky” while she says her sister’s style is “edgier, with cleaner lines and more monochromatic and neutral” pieces. Their blog is about more than just style, though. They love cooking and traveling (they’ve recently been to Spain, France, and Turkey, amongst other places) too, and integrate it all into their dizzingly colorful (in a good way) blog.
From weekend shopping trips to joint hair appointments, we do pretty much everything as a twosome. So when Stef set off for six months of studying French and croissant eating in Paris, we wanted a way to continue sharing our lives from across the globe. Enter How Two Live, a blog where we began documenting our daily adventures, café finds, and latest wardrobe additions. 11 months later, and our online diary has led to a year of international fashion weeks, collaborations with some killer designers, and a whole lot of matching outfits.
Take a virtual stroll (er, scroll) through the wonderfully warped mind of Jon Burgerman, who’s offering up his playful interpretation of the selfie-sharing, interweb-surfing phenom that is the modern girl in the world. The Brit-born/NYC-based artist has us yearning to plaster our walls with his color-injected “Drawings of Girls I’ve seen on Tumblr“, a web-based project which is updated regularly (where else?) on Tumblr. With chromatic scribblings of everything from anonymous blogger babes to iconic fashion photography like Naomi Campbell as Cat Woman in Vogue Russia, it’s safe to say we’ve just found our new online obsession. Here, the Brooklyn dude dishes on his inspiration, the intrigue of going against generic beauty ideals and, duh, why gurlz rule.
