Everyone at The Revival Outpost has been bitten by the travel bug.

Whether it’s our Manager Ashley who is preparing for her first trip to San Francisco, Alexis, our in store liaison, heading to Florida every other week, Boss Lady Christina who is contemplating a styling job in Asia, or me squeezing in time to camp throughout the South East United States, we all want to get out and wander!

There is something about traveling the unknown, exploring some new place, which in turn allows you to explore new parts of yourself.

In this world of constant updates, knowledge and technological lit spaces it’s nice to be surrounded by people who want to abandon the comfort of the couch and tour the world around them.

Sexual Outlaws

A woman’s sexuality has always been a force of turmoil… for men.  From 1920 bathing suits that covered you from neck to ankle to 2014 decisions on contraception, men have always felt the need to control our bodies. Our wombs are warriors for wondrous life, our minds are powered by emotion and empathy, and our physical displays can turn men to warriors or make them weep. We always have the power. We are in control of our sexuality, and often their sexual desire. One of the best demonstrations of women honing their strength as sexual beings is with burlesque.  Here are some burlesque queens from New Orleans who make us proud.

Take me away!  Stow me on a boat, leave me at the beach, shove me between a mint julep and a magnolia tree. It’s summer and it’s time for your wardrobe to scream sunsets, sailing, and sun kissed limbs. Resort wear not only hangs in stores for the longest span of time, it may be the most exhilarating collections to fantasize about.  I mean who doesn’t want to be packing their bags full of clothes to take across the sea?

Can we talk about…

Bella Thorne’s feature in InStyle’s June issue? Dead.

Image

I haven’t watched Disney Channel since I was, like, 11? I’m not familiar with Thorne’s work, but she’ll be alongside our girl Drew (Barrymore) and Adam Sandler in Blended.

Image

So, that’s kind of a deal.

Image

Under the title”Dark Angel,” Nina Sterghiou styled Thorne in textured beaded jumpsuits and elegant chiffon dresses.

Image

 

I love the juxtaposition of the elegant cuts against the dark colors and corse, dynamic materials.

It’s Memorial Day!

f241abe924390ff2a0560b79957f3df3

Many thanks and praises to the soldiers of America who have lost their lives fighting to keep the good ole US of A safe and sound.

CLMemorialDayCover

On this day, along with Cajun barbecues, lots of moonshine and deeper darker tan lines we welcome our main bitch, Summer!

Now that she’s here, she’s here to stay, especially in NOLA.  As the heat rises here in the south, lighter weight clothes in seersucker, chambray and linen take a leading role. There’s also more skin with denim cutoffs, silk and eyelet garments keeping the body’s access to a breeze up and body heat down. With layering out of the question, and once fun heavy metaled jewelry taking a backseat, one must find new ways to accessorize. As always, you know The Revival Outpost got you boo.

Bring on the shade!

Sunglasses, Shades, Hater Blockers, Sunnies, any way you want to call em, fashionable sunglasses are the must have this summer.  Gone are the days where your sunglasses simply protected your eyes from UV rays and prevented the stink-eye effect in photos. Sunglasses now are stand out pieces in just about everyone’s ensembles.

We’ve got a nice assortment of colors and styles.

Have you heard of the Anderson siblings?

ImageImageImage

Sophia, Hannah and Joshua Anderson are some stylish, badass siblings from Texas that have made a name for themselves, especially on Instagram, for their fantastic photos/style/adventures/etc.

 Since this is a #womancrushwednesday feature, we’ll focus on Sophia and Hannah. But you can read up more about Joshua here.

Sophia is a style queen.

Image

Seriously, I don’t understand how she isn’t on the cover of every J. Crew catalogue.

Image

 Image

I need these pants in my life.

Image

Hannah is this musical goddess.

Image

You can listen/download Hannah’s tunes here and here. She’s crazy good. It kills me.

Image

Also, her bravery in hairstyling is enviable. She went from this asymmetrical bowl cut thing to a fade and can rock literally anything.

Image

Image

AND they take awesome pictures. Their posts always brighten up my feed. I could scroll through their instas endlessly. SO much inspiration.

Sunday Funday

Sundays are the best. You can wake up late, be lazy around the house in your favorite set of PJ’s, read or watercolor or do whatever the hell else you want whilst ignoring the impending doom of the Monday blues.

Sundays are also great for makin’ stuff with friends!

I was scrolling around on Pinterest finding the most delicious summer treats to make with some friends this morning. Obviously popsicles are my favorite. Not only do the look beautiful, but they’re delicious, and the oooonly thing I want with me while I take a dip in the pool.

….except for a daiquiri. 

Here are some of my favorite summer popsicles!

Blood Orange Margarita Popsicles. Need I say more?

Image

 

Orange Cremesicles!

 

Image

 

This is an Iced Coffee popsicle. Can we talk about how much I need this? Like now.

 

Image

 

Coke Float is probably the best thing that ever happened to a popsicle. 

Image

 

Raspberry Cheesecake Pops! It’s an ice cream cake on a stick!

Image

 

“Firecracker” – Berry Yogurt Pop. zoooomg. 

Image

 

And one more with a little kick! 

Strawberry Champagne for the win. This is the first that I will be trying.

HAPPY POPPIN’!

Who Runs The World?

Have you ever woken up so overwhelming impressed with your own womanliness that you wanted to shout from your bed/front porch/mountain top, ‘I am Woman, hear me ROAR!”

US too!

Particularly this morning.

c87de4351c7ffaffa891fa7a685b27c5There is something so strong yet supple about a woman’s body.

663e37247d028f1e511d67a4a054796d

The curves of our spine and the roundness of our breasts.

88ca98a2fcc8d2936a007d2088908855

The fact that we can emit sexiness with only our silhouette.

e5e14a8a15eabca073c9260be5823a5b

When thinking of sensuality, the likelihood of a woman being directly connected to any definition of the word is almost certain. Undeniable we are. Now let us rejoice.

fcb9d18a921ace7ca11a34140e64f5ca

You know here at The Revival Outpost we are all about the strength of the sister. Empowering women through our garments, actions, influence and accomplishments only furthers the notion ‘Power of the Pussy’.

0549622f340d87d23f4d5d3785a4e1bb

Embrace your female body, without it none of us would be here!

Our new Mesh Dress can give you the edge you need to stand up and proclaim your womanly glory!

Can we talk about…

Aveda’s Spring 2014 lookbook? 

Image

First off, it’s amazing.

Image

It’s called Culture Clash, which fits perfectly.

Image

 

The line mixes this really futuristic and architectural hair/makeup with these feminine lines and layered textures.

Image

 

I’m impressed. I feel like this collection is really shaping their brand into something more high-end. 

Image

 

Definitely the best collection they’ve ever done.

Image

Plus, who doesn’t love mixed prints more than I do?

Image

Image

Image

Image

My friend Leslie Limberg, an amazing singer/theatre queen/now hair+makeup stylist (to be), asked me to model for her in the Aveda 2014 Catwalk for Water Scholarship Competition. I obviously said yes and we had hella fun. She not only dyed, cut and styled my hair, but also styled the outfit—which was inspired by Aveda’s 2014 lookbook.

Image

She hit the nail on the head with that one, huh?
