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.

Pinto and Pool

It’s Monday! If you find yourself starring at the clock and calendar willing the days by until the next parade, don’t fret. Escape into the last compilation of photos from our shop lady Erica’s West Indies trip.

With all the bodycon, crop top, sheer from head to toe we’ve been loving in street fashion, we often forget that being draped in fabric can be a beautifully empowering way to mix things up.

Can we talk about…?

Creatures of Comfort and Zimmermann’s F/W ’14 lines?

LITERALLY DEAD.

Jade Lai took inspiration from the mystery board game Clue.

Firstly, I love Clue. And murder mysteries. And plum-colored lip stains.

Guess what? The model’s lips were beautifully berry-stained. Love at first sight? Yes.

All the ladies were heavily cloaked, rocking brilliant blue checks, asymmetrical silhouettes and 90’s razor cuts.

Image

 My favorite look of the collection. Army green has been my power color for the past couple of weeks. Plus, the oversize blazer and high waisted slit-skirt-over-creme-knee-length-shorts-thing makes me swoon.

ImageImage

 Never underestimate the power of the turtleneck.

ImageImageImageImage Sex appeal + librarian chic?

———–

Now, Zimmermann.

For only being its third show in the states, it seriously knows what’s up.

Image

Always fresh. Always killin’ it. Always crispy (with that feminine touch).

Image

Do you ever want to wear anything else but partially wedged point-toe oxfords for the rest of your life?

ImageImage

This shit makes me feel like a flirtatious warrior princess.

Image

Watch me shake my hips as I slice my enemy’s heads off.

ImageImage

 Like, the fuck is this silhouette?

My boobs could never hold this up. But I’m tempted to spend over $2,000 to try.

ImageImage

My favorite look.

Perfect midi skirt to swish and sway in.

Cute platform heels.

Cuddly cropped knit.

Boxy leather.

NECK BOWS!

It’s the perfect juxtaposition.

Just don’t forget that berry-lip, ladies.

xoxo + happy #nyfw!

Iree Island Life Part 1

There’s nothing like epic cold weather to make you wish you were on an island. Our shop lady Erica spent 13 days in the West Indies. Here is her first installment on Caribbean fashion and how to get it here at The Revival Outpost.

Under three thousand people live in this city

Soufriere – Under three thousand people live in this city

“Sa ka fete?” What’s up, how’s it going? “Iree” Good, relaxing. St. Lucia is a small island just above Barbados. Small towns fill the valleys in between the mountainous island and create a down home, everyone knows you -your auntie-grandma-cousin- or neighbor-feel that us Southerns know only too well.

Inspiration is a funny thing; it can be hidden in the clouds or blatant in the streets. When you don’t have cars filling roads, Internet at your fingertips and material items blocking your view all you can see is the beauty in the details.

Turqoi Water

Water so blue

Local Beer

Local beer named after the set of mountains behind the bottles

Local price for this lager is $1.60USD

Got an island name: BadGalEE

The spirit of St. Lucia is much like other island cultures: Live easy, live simple, and live happy.

Restroom

Women’s and Men’s Restroom signs

Even on an island, we women can’t be too over dressed. Working women on the island were conservatively stylish. Layers of light fabric draped over brown skin.  Colorful accent bows added to kinky cornrows. Three inch heels float over New Orleans esq cobble stone.

Lookbook: Three Floor Fashion

The lookbook for TF is literally all we’ve ever wanted in our lives and more.

ImageImage

The sharp lines and angles. The colors. The acid-dripped layering. The shadows.

It’s brilliant.

ImageImage

Not to mention genius. I love the aesthetic. It really captures and fits their brand perfectly.

Bravo, Three Floor Fashion, you’ve officially won us over.

Big Things: It’s 2014

Hey guys, sorry for the lack of posts through December and January!

We’ve been dusting off and cleaning up some things. We hosted an acoustic show with two sweet singing ladies and Uly! SUPER BIG: We’re adding lots of inventory to our website so you guys can shop anytime you want, anyplace that has wifi you desire.

We’ve been generally kicking ass and taking names with lots of different projects and working on a blog makeover. 

So, while all that is going on, let’s talk about some huge things that are happening.

1. Our girl Amanda is going to NEW FUCKING YORK FASHION WEEK.

4. This isn’t new news, but it’s big news. Louisiana ArtWorks building. This needs to happen, dudes.

artworkstile

There are some super secret plans in the works for the building that I don’t even know about yet. But, big things *cross your fingers* are to come for this building. *knock on wood* It would be a fantastic edition to the city and an open space for creatives to come together AND MAKE AWESOME SHIT HAPPEN.

5. We love bad bitches and we love bad bitches that can sing. Maggie Koerner released her new record “Neutral Ground” in November and it is still on repeat in my car. Click here to see her music video.

This lovely folk babe is killing it all over the place. She’s in Florida for a bit before moving through the rest of her tour until ending in March in San Fran! If you’re traveling, make sure you catch one.

Anything we missed? Anything big that you’re working on? Let us know, we might be able to get you some free press!

Can we talk about…

Asteroids Galaxy Tour?

1002083_10151781109967573_894305894_n

I know I’m throwing it back a bit, but I started listening to their stuff again and can’t stop jamming.

 If you don’t know who AGT is, it’s a Danish pop band that formed in ’07 and included trumpet + sax (obviously, I’m in love with them). It’s vocalist fucking rocks. She’s this blond bombshell with this crazy cool voice.

1005575_10151807484697573_769320166_n

Their music is almost acid jazz or some type of psychedelic pop.

1010935_10151807475227573_271758381_n

Mette Lindberg also models. Because she’s a bombshell. Her style is totally #revivalmaterial

1236850_10152007585507573_790469094_n

She was muse to the Danish designer Nikoline Liv Anderson. So good.

Amy Winehouse’s management actually picked it up in the first place. AGT toured with Winehouse for a while before supporting Katy Perry on her 2009 European tour.

156736_10151628296272573_1925955851_n

They haven’t produced anything (that I know of) since 2011. But toooons of their EPs and singles have been used for commercials (Myer and Apple), TV shows (Gossip Girl), documentaries (The September Issue) and other jingles.

556731_10151628296442573_380821143_n

Plus, they’re still touring. So. I’m down.
