Midweek Music Relief

Midweek Music Relief

Music is always something I want more of, I always want something new, I want something that makes me excited, and I also don’t want to look for it myself. So, on that note, I bring you Wednesday Playlists!  (And by “I”, I mean my lovely musically inclined assistant Haley brings you, because heaven forbid I look myself.)   She will be putting a little something together for you every week to get you through the midweek slump.  Hope you...
Life, love, and the pursuit of mom jeans.

Life, love, and the pursuit of mom jeans.

If you haven’t heard, mom jeans are in.  And by in, I mean did they ever go out?  Well yes, they did.  Unless you are a mom over the age of… maybe 50? I dunno. And maybe you are on a vacation somewhere wearing a fanny pack and tennis shoes.  If you aren’t, and you are sans a closet full of mom jeans, I suggest you hightail it to your local thrift shop and score yourself a pair.  I mean, you could buy a pair of new “mom fit” jeans, but I say go the cheap route.  Plus, at a thrift shop, you can try many different pairs of slightly different fit and see which is most flattering for you.  Because mom jeans are sooooooo flattering. The hardest part of finding the right, and “flattering”, fit is the butt.  You have to get the right amount of smoosh, tightness, and butt cheek definition.  They should be comfortably high waisted, loose around the thighs and calves, and my preferred length is a slight crop.  If they aren’t cropped, you can always chop them, like I did with these.  The key to pulling them off is to add in some newer pieces, like a funky pair of heels, to update them.  You don’t want to look like the aforementioned tennis shoe dawning vacationer.

Killer Early 2000s Playlist

Killer Early 2000s Playlist

  So besides 90s Pop Radio on Pandora, I like to listen to this little jem, curated by my friend Luyanda, while I work.  It’s lots of really good, sometimes vulgar, always nostalgic music that was poppin around in the early 2000s, think 2000-2005.  If you are my age, we’re talking about the junior high and high school years, if you aren’t my age then you can still listen.  I just can’t relate. Besides the music, there were also some killer things happening in the fashion ad area during that time.  Although it has nothing to do with the music except for the timing, I love this 2001 Prada campaign. So feast your eyes, and your ears, to a little Wednesday flashback....
Just add roller skates.

Just add roller skates.

  Well well well, if it isn’t my good friend the overall!  These ones though, these ones are different.  These are like the coolest 70’s style overalls you wish you had.  I wished I had them too, but then I found them.  My life is complete.  Now if I only had a pair of roller skates…  and I knew how to use them. Overalls: Urban Outfitters // Tank: F21 // Wedges: Steve Madden...
