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.

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.

Can we talk about…

The blog Where I See Fashion?

Image

Alla Kostromichova by Sølve Sundsbø in “The Girl from Atlantis” for Vogue Japan May 2010 wearing Alexander McQueen | Snake skin

Literally I haven’t been checking a website as often as I do this one since I found Designlovefest two years ago.

Image

Iris Van Herpen Spring 2012 | Old tree bark

 How does someone even do this? Her ability to pair things and see fashion in the most unusual places is uncanny and absolutely brilliant.

Image

Solange Knowles for Complex Magazine 2013 Cover Story | Sterlitzia (bird of paradise flower)

I don’t know who the girl is, but she’s a fashion design student from Milan. She doesn’t use her own images, either. If anything, she might use photoshop to get better colors.

She started the blog just because she felt the need to do something with all the inspiring images she found on Tumblr.

“Sometimes a fashion picture reminds me instantly of something and I go look for it, sometimes it’s a random picture that makes me think of an outfit or editorial.”

 Fantasy Wedding Dress by Marchesa Spring 2011 | Smoke by Andrew Kim

“Occasionally it happens that by chance I see two pictures near each other on my dashboard or in a random blog that perfectly go together. Also I have A LOT of photos that I saved on my computer because I found them interesting, it’s like my personal archive and I use it a lot to make matches.”

Can you imagine searching for hours through your archives of images to find that one picture you vaguely remember seeing two months ago from a random vogue photoshoot?

Like, kill me. That’s crazy.

This girl is literally superhuman.

To finish, my ultimate favorite. You should seriously bookmark this girl, she is a constant source of inspiration.

REVIVALxROSALINA YOUNG

 Welcome to our new feature: REVIVALx(YOURNAMEHERE)

There are so many rad babes that we know, we just gotta collaborate with ’em! If you think you’ve got the look we want and are interested in collabing, e-mail us at therevivaloutpost@yahoo.com!

Image

This feature is dedicated to Rosalina Young, the hip, stylish 22-year-old make-up artist from Abita Springs.

ImageImage

Not only does Young have a bomb-ass Youtube channel jam-packed with helpful makeup tutorials, but she’s also been featured on Beautylish AND FEATURED ON REFINERY29.

That’s some next level shit. Rosa don’t play.

Image

Also, her freelance makeup logo is the cutest thing we’ve ever seen ever.

(I want to go to the BABEFACTORY!)

533988_434165136671209_528612029_nHannah Grace, our favorite little Revival lady, took Young out to photograph their day in the city. She also styled the pink tropical dress.

Image

Young styled two of the three looks below: blue polka dot skirt + white top + that killer pastel jacket.

Follow her on insta and like her on FB!

Check back for more REVIVALx features.

Until next time, babes, keep it real.

Bat is the New Black

Image

So, y’all have all heard about our lil collaboration with Lisa Iacono, right? If not, check out the last post. This is huuuuuuuge and the design is killa killa. ALSO YOU NEED TO VOTE RIGHT HERE GO NOW.

Image

Do you see the sequin bat on the back? Crazy. Let’s talk about it.

Image

 I asked Lisa about her inspiration for the redesign. Here’s a little excerpt of our convo:

“My inspiration was the Revival Outpost girl–beautiful, eclectic, cheeky, street.  The design itself combined 2 ideas: michael jackson/marching band + heavy metal tough details = glam-rock-cocktail-hour barbie.”

I don’t think that there is a better description for a Revival girl than that.

Image

“I had so much fun with this, as I got to bust out my hand sewing skills, something I really enjoy.”

Is Lisa talented or what? I was stunned when I saw the design. She also sent me some sketches, which, to me, is always fantastic. Seeing the initial thought process of a designer when she is trying to replicate a certain brand AND also staying true to his/her own is  so interesting.

Cutoffs? She knows us so well.

photo 7

“Because timing was tight, I decided not to plan the shirt from top to bottom before starting.  I just dove in with materials I had stored in a costuming bin.”

Image

“I kept thinking I should really manipulate the t-shirt itself and cut it up, but the more I looked at it, the more I laughed.  Something about keeping the t-shirt intact, but making it into a cocktail dress…that’s funny.

 My favorite detail is the black sequin bat shape that wraps over the shoulders and continues across the back body.  Bats, literally, on tees.”

 —————–

Your turn!

CLICK HERE AND VOTE FOR TEAM FRENCH QUARTER!!

We have until the 28th to prove that the Revival ladies got style so we can get some NOLA swag.

And who wouldn’t want to get our gals at Bats on Tees to the top?

VOTE. VOTE. VOTE.

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!

Can we talk about…

Vests?

Not the gross, oversized, muddy-brown corduroy vests that should have died when the ’70s did.

I’m also not talking about wearing those men’s suit vests made for women like you work at a catering company.

Image

I’m talking about the beautifully constructed vests that act as the missing piece you didn’t know your outfit was missing.

Embroidered. Sequined. Studded. Chained.

Image

Lay(er) it on me.

Image

They’re great. Oversized vests that drape to your mid-thigh can even elongate your torso if you’re short-waisted. They’re easy to throw on over a basic Tee and jeans, making it seem like you put some effort into your outfit when you actually just overslept and threw on the first thing you grabbed out of your overstuffed closet.

Image

Basically, vests can solve all of your problems.

Image

And, fuck it, why not wear the vest on it’s own?

Image

#werk

Spring 2009 runway was all about ‘dem vests.

Image

 Image

The trend was recycled recently in the Spring 2013  Fashion Weeks.

Image

Now I’m not really one to follow trends…but is it too early to bring them back?

Can we talk about…

Ponchos.

Image

One of our readers challenged us to do a post about ponchos.

Image

Piece of cake, Dawn. We got you, girl.

Image

but all I’m saying is…

Image

thank you based god that Free People exists.

Image

Ponchos aren’t bad.

Not all of them are translucent bundles of plastic you wear when it rains or shittily stitched fake tribal patterns sold at your local Forever 21 in a variety of obnoxious, vibrant colors.

Image

The poncho thing spiked around 2011. Suddenly they were draped upon the shoulders of every celebrity and walking down every runway literally everywhere.

Image

Everywhere.

Image

 Some are super cool. You have your typical Free People-esque flowy and bohemian pieces. Then there are the more structured ponchos with asymmetrical lines and geometric patterns. I’m really digging how versatile they are. They have patterns that draw the eye and you can use them throughout every season depending on the thickness of material.

Image

If it’s a huge “statement” poncho, wear it alone. Transfer from a day look (worn with gladiator sandals) to a night look (change into big, bold heels). Be daring. #werkthatfringe

Image

They’re easy to throw over jeans or silk pants with booties, too.

Image

How would you wear a poncho?
