For The Love Of Crop Tops:

Crop tops are the new it fab of the century. From crop tops paired with minis for a more fancy event to wearing them paired with ripped jeans to class, they are something that everyone needs in their closet. As seen above you can pair them with a cute pair of cropped jeans, a tie-dye cropped top and Chanel flats. It’s simple but oh-so effective from Bella Thorne

However you can also pair them in a more fashion forward way for the red carpet. The newest Taylor Swift red carpet ensemble is one of our favourite looks on her, ever. The stunning J. Mendel monochrome two-piece with crop top proves that the trend works for formal wear, too.

No matter how you pair it just make it you! Check out below for some of our new favorite crop tops. Love, A&E

"I WANT A BRA OK! WE, WE WANT A BRA!"
Just like Lizzie McGuire, we all want to grow up and get our first bra and feel like a lady. But as you get older you realize that searching for the right bra is not as inspiring and joyous as when you were 12. There are all different shapes, styles, colors, fits, you name it there is a bra for it. So that’s when the dreaded fitting comes in where you need a bra fairy to help you find the perfect bra for under a t shirt, strapless dress, low cut or backless top, etc.
But have you ever dreaded going into a store to try on a bra because you know they are going to want to do a fitting for you. Those awkward fittings where you stand there in front of everyone as this woman measures your breasts with a long pink measuring tape announcing your cup size like it’s the score to a basketball game? Yea we have all been there.
But lucky for you those days are over. 
As if technology could not get any savvier, there is now an app that can tell you what bra size you are.
So say goodbye to awkward encounters and hello to this wonder. This is where ThirdLove app comes in.Third Love a linguire company created an app that takes out that awkward middle man of a bra fitting. 
All you have to do is take a picture of yourself and the app does the rest. (A frontal view and side profile view in a tight fitting bra or tank). The site is secure so you don’t have to worry about taking nude selfies or your pictures getting in the hands of the wrong person.
It’s the most genius app to hit the app store.

Kloss This:

Karlie Kloss: Model, Cookie baker, and now designer? Is there anything that she doesn’t do?

Lovely Karlie Kloss has stunned us again with debuting her sunglasses collection for the famous eye wear company Warby Parker.

Her 70’s inspired collection will have you wanting to add every style, color, and shape to your cart. Not only are the glasses super adorable, the profits of the glasses go towards Edible Schoolyard NYC, a nonprofit dedicated to healthier eating in low-income schools.

If that doesn’t melt your heart and already have you looking up the sunglasses we don’t know what would.

So go ahead by a pair, or five and look fabulous while also helping feed the world.

Fresh To Death:

You ever wake up some mornings and just really don’t feel like doing your hair…the blow drying, straightening, curling, and not to mention the products your hair has to endure in order to look effortlessly chic after your morning shower?

Well we have that problem solved for you and it’s the wet hair trend.

Lately we have been seeing models, celebrities, and everyone alike walking out looking like they just jumped straight from the shower to the Manhattan streets. So we decided to give you the freshly showered skinny.

Think The Little Mermaid meets Blue Crush. Here is how you can style it no matter what hair type or length you have.

For curly or wavy hair like E: Apply a small amount of curl-enhancing creams to wet hair from root to tip. This will enhance the curls you already have while giving you the beach club pool look. Work the product through with a wide-tooth comb, then scrunch hair with your fingers to build curl definition. We recommend Redken Curvaceous Full Swirl or Curl Quencher Hydra Fusion Intense Curl Cream.

For straight hair: Use a thickening mousse like Bumble & Bumble Thickening Full Form Mousse. These will help create volume in your hair due to your already straight locks, helping to create a slicked back look and not overload of product. Smooth on a high-shine pomade for a shellacked finish.

For short hair: Women with short hair are lucky. Because you have less hair you can use less product. That way you don’t have to feel like your hair is cemented to your head all day.

For medium length hair or long hair: Less is always more, but because you have longer hair try apply most to your roots and top of scalp and less as you get to ends of you hair. You don’t want to whip your hair back and forth and smack someone with globs of product.

The days of bed head are over and shower head are in. Wet Hair Don’t Care!

Stealing Trends Since 14’:

Kate Bosworth also known as Rosalee Futch, Jane, and Anne Marie Chadwick from her most famous and beloved films, she is also known for being a global ambassador for the SK-II skincare line.

But now she has something else to add to her resume. Becoming the proud owner and inventor of the new fashion app Style Thief.

The idea of this app allows you to take pictures of celebrities, friends, or that super stylish person you see on the train and upload it to the app where you can find out where the item is from! Its Shazam, but for clothes!!

Style Thief’s beta version launched last November, with plans to debut for the iPhone in European countries, such as the U.K. and Germany, within the next 60 days. But don’t fret it is on its way!

She also happens to be our Woman Crush Wednesday, not only for her role in And While We Were Here, Blue Crush, and Win A Date With Tad Hamilton, but for her gorgeous style and those killer two tone colored eyes of hers.

So steal that super trendy girl in your English classes dress, we won’t tell.

Love,

Shine Bright Shine Far:

The glitz, glamor and fashion is exploding at the Elie Saab Couture show.

In Elie Saab’s recent couture show, the designer showed the audiences a sparkle of fairytale with her elegant dresses with all shapes, sizes, and colored, decked out from head to toe in beading, lace, and wonder. These dresses out to make you fall in love with the label if you did not already love it already.

The final dress, similar to a Cinderella spectacular is sure to make even Anna Wintour shed a tear from the pure beauty of it all.

Let’s just hope she doesn’t purse her lips at these beautiful shining wonders, because we are in love.

I Was Enchanted To Meet You:

Dolce & Gabbana created an enchanting love at first sight at their recent runway show on the Island of Capri in Italy just the other day.

Guests of all types of fabulous boarded a flotilla of little sailboats that had their prows garlanded with swag of lemon and bay leaf, and set off to the rocky beach club of the Fontelina, where the designers would unveil their fall Alta Moda collection.

Doesn’t get more fairytale than that! But it truly does!

Waiters served pink champagne in matelot shirts and guests sat anticipating what would happen next. Swan-necked Dolce model beauties, stepped out on their Capri runway barefoot in Second Empire ball gowns with tiny, jeweled, cut-velvet bodices and huge crinoline skirts with hand-painted stripes of yellow, green, blue, or red on white. Pure Luxury.

“On Capri, a woman doesn’t live the seasons,” wrote Stefano and Domenico in the beautiful little book they produced for guests, filled with images of the island and the legendary women who have fallen in love with it through the years—Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Maria Callas, Rita Hayworth, Elizabeth Taylor, and Ingrid Bergman among them. “She lives life, love and passion.”

All this event was missing was the perfect romantic Princess Diaries foot pop.

FIFA: The Federation International Football Association or as we like to call it Fashion In Fabulous Attractions

Yesterday Germany took home the world cup in the final FIFA match against Argentina.

Aside from the gut wrenching game of watching no one make a goal until the over time of 120 minutes, we could not keep our eyes off of Gisele as she presented the World Cup to the winning team in the most gorgeous outfit.

Not only was the cup presented in a custom made Louis Vuitton trophy box for the winner, but Gisele presented the trophy on behalf of Louis Vuitton in non other than a head to toe Louis Vuitton collection.

She presented the shiny trophy in a Louis Vuitton Resort 2015 aquamarine printed mini dress featuring a scalloped hemline and belted waist while also strutting her gorgeous bod in an eye-catching pair of black, ankle-strap heels adorned with a white pattern from the the same collection.

Way to go Germany and Gisele. You always now how to really shine.

Birch Box Makes A Landing:

The Beloved Birch Box company is taking their company to new heights with their first ever brick and mortar store. The store will be in Soho of course, as if there was ever a different option. Socialites and New York visitors from all around will be able to come into the store and get the feel of the online Birch Box in their own hands.

Originally this store was made for online purposes only where customers can create their own personal profiles of hair types, skin tones, and beauty preferences that the “Birch Box fairies” as we like to call them, then take those notes and suggest five samples of beauty products to provide their lovely customer in a box that they receive in the mail every month for just $10. Each month is different, filling your beauty parlor at home with an array of different products to choose from and fall in love with. Some of the brands that Birch Box has used in the past are Tocca Perfumes, Oribe Hair products, Benefit and Smashbox for makeup, and even NCLA nail decals. These boxes cater to every girl and man. There are even grooming Birch Boxes that your man can receive every month as well.

But if those descriptions of the best products did not already sell you wanting to purchase a box then the new store will. With personalized Ipads around the store so you can create your monthly boxes, products lining the walls to purchase, and even a BYOB (Build Your Own Birch Box) Station in the back allows you to build your own box where you can choose five deluxe sample sizes from five different categories including hair care, fragrance and skin care. for $15. Wowzah! Other features include a “Try Bar” for testing products; multiple tech stations, where shoppers can access video reviews and get specific product recommendations based on their profiles; and a salon offering hair, makeup and nail services, and group classes.
 

And this store is here to stay and possibly expand to other locations. We repeat this is not a drill!


So head on over to the new Birch Box Store now.

Open for beautiful.

Future hipsters will love me ironically: 

In honor of our favorite and most stylish spicy girl Mindy Kalings birthday we thought we would talk about her awesome style and attitude.

From her show The Mindy Project, where Mindy Lahiri the infamous and loud spoken doctor who can’t say no to a good steal at a flea market, a woman who embraces her body weight of fluctuating between chubby and curvy, and  who believes that “Sometimes you just have to put on lip gloss and pretend to be psyched.”

She shows all women out there it is better to live a life that is healthy and happy, which involves loving yourself-and not being afraid to eat what you want.

For more wonderful quotes of Mindy and all her glory check out this Buzzfeed article.

Also if you haven’t already, read her book “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me”. It will be the best book you will read all summer.

Keep doing you Mindy.

Short And Sweet:

Today in micro fashion, the little ones are catching up to us in dressing better for everyday activities ( and we don’t mean just short sisters).

This little youngster may not be a short sister but he sure is styling. Mother of this adorable 4 year old boy decided to dress her son up like models and celebrities and re post pictures of him doing the same poses.

From lounging in the sandbox to off to school dressed like Ryan Gosling, this precious fellow is dressed to impress. This mom clearly has incredible taste herself that it has rubbed off on her son as he gets ready for school, play dates, and winning over all the girls in pre-school and kindergarten.
Maybe him and Mayhem should get together to become the new micro fashion dynamic duo.

Going Nude:
It is possible to over-do a trend. With spring here, everywhere I turn I see orange lips. We have Rag and Bone to thank for this. NARS is probably having a hay day right now.
I do like to give my lips a rest from all the attention every once and a while. In comes my new purchase, YSL’s Rouge Volupte in Impetuous Beige. 
I am a sucker for good packaging and the gold sleek box was whispering my name in Sephora. 
Get in the routine of switching up your lip style. No one likes to see you in a orange or red lip everyday, even Taylor Swift doesn’t do that.
Love,
A
