Hi Guys. So, I feel like this really doesn't require a lot of fanfare or explanation: Go onto Refinery 29 and you can enter to win 3(!) Rebecca Minkoff bags. I mean, are you KIDDING me? Like, sign me up times twelve!
If any LINTERS happen to win, do let us know so we can live vicariously!!
So, Refinery listed their "Top 11" spring must-haves today and I obviously couldn't resist taking a peek.
Okay, I don't want to sound grandma or anything or like someone who fights progress, but some of the 80's stuff is getting a little intense for me. I feel like it's been slowly resurfacing for so long now and, while I actually really love the above floral full-pieces, round sunglasses (if you can pull them off), platforms and a good old denim jacket, I'm sort of afraid of these backpacks and slashed jeans.
Let's be honest though: we've all certainly said that before and later eaten our words. The 80's (and 90's, right? I mean, backpacks are full-on 90's!) stuff just feels like a pretty obvious translation of the past instead of an updated homage, but, then again, maybe I'm just mad cause I look squat in a jumpsuit.
This may seem a little pathetic to you naysayers and haters out there, who just don't get it, but I was (and remain) a loyal Gilmore Girls fanatic. Yeah. I said it. Without (much) shame. So, when I saw Refinery 29's image of Alexis Bledel as Rosie The Riveter, you know I just had to peek.
Turns out Glamour's 70th Anniversary issue features an "American Icons" spread for which they've dressed up a bunch of young starlets as feminist (or at least prominent) figures in history. I have a hard time with Hayden Panettierieclothbathrobe. She just BUGS for some reason (grrrr–it's me, not you), but once I got through an image of her as Amelia Earhart (and a slightly uncomfortable image of Emma Roberts as Audrey Hepburn cause there's like zero resemblance and it sort of makes Emma seem coarse), I was rewarded with images of America Ferrera as Dolores Huerta, Paula Patton as Billie Holiday, Elisha Cuthbert as soccer player Brandi Chastain in the first Women's World Cup and Alicia Keys as Michelle Obama (which I guess is a little odd cause Michelle is so current, but still sweet). Even The Lohan as Madonna kinda works. Glamour, more than a lot of other mags, emphasizes women's issues, which is cool.
Side note: Refinery's Pipeline also mentioned that Echo Park's Show Pony is going out of business after this weekend. So sad, but I guess this is the way of the moment. Worth stopping by, I'm sure:)
