TRENDING / / ENAMEL PINS

I lovvveeeeeeeee enamel pins. Its like a real life emoji and flair and kinda reminds me of those stickers you used to get with your planner on the first day of school. I get so many compliments on mine, and since light jacket weather is in full swing I put together a round up of some of my favs.

ADORABLE CRITTERS

If you love cupcakes and narwhals and go to kawaii events you'll love Nutmeg&Arlo. We are obviously fans of the Dino Enamel Pin $8.79

SASSY BETCH

The Lapel Pin section on Witchsy is seriously the danger zone. I think the other day I had at least 12 different pins in my cart and had to calmly walk away because I actually can not ball that hard. Definitely the best collection of snarky weird shit from rad indie brands. This Fuck You Pin from Badaboom Studio really reflects my #mood rn $11.00

WHITE WITCH

For the celestial bohemian goddess inside you, I recommend TNLSUPPLY . I LOVE my GoldDust Woman pin ($10.00) sooooo much and always get comments about its radness.

Guest House / / Becca's Top 5 StreetStyle Trends

So I have been stalking the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn trying to get an idea of what it is the streetwalkers are wearing this summer season. I'm talking about the normal (ish) people like myself. I am not referring to the super rich who wear full runway looks to get groceries, or the wannabe bloggers that are head to toe in what they think vogue tells them to wear (I mean no disrespect towards vogue, I love what you do). 

It's the people who are in NYC on a budget but still care about looking fabulous during the summer months!! I've seen a lot of trends popping up on my strolls but here are the 5 I have seen the most. 


1- Midi length skirts

In a major waaaaaay. I have fallen head over heels for this length. It's perfect as it allows a person to look glamorous while not having to shave above the knee- WINNER WINNER.

 

2- Ugly sandals

I mean it in a nice way, but ugly ass sandals are EVERYWHERE. Literally Birkenstocks on very second person I see, including myself. Let's be realistic here, they're comfortable AF so why the hell not? 


3- All White Everything

Sadly I am not the kind of person who can wear white. I spill or drool far too often to ever attend a p diddy white party. I have been seeing so many girls in head to toe white outfits. If you can pull it off then why not? 

 

4- Loosey goosey baby

The summer is no time for that Hervé Leger bandage dress. It's all about wearing breathable dresses and tops! This doesn't mean you need to go and wear some form of sack like item. It can be done in an extremely chic way.

 

5- Round sunnies

I would have been the first to say that the original ray ban wayfarer were a summer favourite, but starting to think that day is gone. It's all about the John Lennon-esque round sunglasses. I'm a MASSIVE fan and I'm also writing this blog so you must believe me. BECCA HAS SPOKEN! 

Stay fresh lovers

Becca xoxo

Record Player / / Zoolander

Zoolander is one of the most On Point Fashion Docs of all time.

Here's Some Crucial Life Lessons we Learned from watching this Cinema Classic currently on Netflix

David bowie is a god and needs to have a Daytime Courtroom drama where he doles out Swift & Fierce Walkoffs of Justice.

Attitude is everything, especially when you and your Archenemy are both Rocking Snakeskin.

It's okay to unplug, and wear dope fuzzy sweaters.

Friendtime is Crucial, Seatbelts are Not. 

Sometimes you just need to Let Go and Let Hansel

Life isn't all about how you look, but have a good Selfie Face ready at all times.

Will Ferrel is Creepy as Fvck.

Record Player / / Six Best Things about The Girls Finale

 

Marnie Stops Acting like A Complete Idiot: I get into my Desi Loathing later, but it was really awesome to see Marnie stop being soooooooo laaaame. I love the Ray/Marnie relationship story, even though I really can't figure out why he likes her so much..it would probably be the best thing that ever happened to her personality. Lets hope Desi is gone for good. 

Jessa Dosent at like a Total Bitch the Entire Episode: I get that Jessa has been through some shit, but she was pretty terrible this season. But there was a glimpse of the old wise fun Jessa from long ago when she gets in that bathtub and looks into the vagina of another woman. You always know she's ride or die, and you have to love that about her. 

Shoshana Leans In: So rad that Shoshana takes the Tokyo job. She continues to be one of the most admirable, brave & fashionable characters in the show. Can't wait to see what she's wearing next season in Tokyo & what hilarious catch phrase she will have me obsessed with. 

Someone Finally Called Desi A Douche: Desi is such a Fuckboii. He is the absolute worst type of dude. I've seriously been waiting for this moment since he ride away on his Triumph with an acoustic slung over his chemically distressed leather jacket. The Speech totally solidified Ray as serious imaginary BF material. We need more snarky gentlemen in the world. 

Hannah Says No: We all know that when someone you've loved wants you back, there is definitely that second when it all rushes back to you and its all sunny afternoons and steamy smooching sessions. But when push comes to shove they are your ex for a reason. Never treat someone who treats you like a Monday Morning like a Saturday Night, and don't let Adam come back just because he asked. This is a rare smart Hannah move. 

girls-season-4-finale.jpg

Six Months Later: To Quote my Girl T Swizzle...'Boys only want Love if its Torture'. Proof that the crazier you act, the more a dude will dig you. I know, it makes zero sense, but I've tested this, and it works. Hannah let this guy see her at her most vulnerable, and thats the most ballsy risky move ever but when it pays off its the best. Hopefully it works out for her with this guy and maybe this is a step in the right direction, maybe not. But thats what Lena does best, slowly reins us in until giving us just enough of what we wanted and just enough surprise to keep us waiting until next year. She can't promise perfection, but she can promise intrigue and whether she meant it or not, that line perfectly sums up this season.

Verdict: Still Hooked

To say that the 90's has been on an upward trend lately is, like, totally obvious...duh! We are so jazzed to see the return of the Mini Back Pack (MBP for short). Chanel, Prada & Moschino have rolled them out on the runway and bad bitches are ditching their old crossbody's all over the streets. If you're like us, you've got your life in that bag and any city dweller knows that keeping a bag in the crook of your arm is too much of a hassle (read: crowded subways) The perfect combo of form and function our Repurposed Vintage MBP's are rad and as always they are adorned with a dash of HOC Flair!

Record Player / / Bad Bitch Sia

 

We've been playing Sia's 1000 Forms of Fear on repeat all week. If you're a fan of Bad Bitch Girl Anthems then you'll totally dig it. Sia has been a behind the scenes heavy hitter songwriter for years, writing countless #1 singles like 'Pretty Hurts' for Beyonce and 'Diamonds for Rhianna. She's been releasing solo albums for years, all which are worth a Spotify Streaming Session. The recent single that we've already been silently belting through our headphones on the commute home are there, along with slower more powerful jams like Eye of the Needle and Straight for The Knife paired with Power Ballads not as overdramatic, as say, Adele but just as soulful. Favorites include Fair Game, Elastic Heart & Dressed in Black

You've probably already seen this, because be real, who hasn't, but still worth another watch, 

Great album for ringing in the first few weeks of the New Year and Remembering that you're a Bad Bitch who will Accomplish ALL this Year!!! Have a Listen Below!

There's nothing we enjoy more than an Ironic Themed Dress Up Party. The addition of Boozy Eggnog, Gifts and Sequins into the Mix makes this the Event of the Season.
