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…

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?

On the Mississippi

Hannah and our newest Revival babe, Caroline, spent a little time down by the Mississippi on a rainy Thursday last week.

Image

Thankfully, Kevin VanGogh was there to capture the ladies in all their stylish glory.

Image

Can we talk about that clear bubble umbrella? Dead. I need ten to keep me dry during all this crazy weather we’re having.

Image

Better head into Revival and get yourself a pair of circle sunnies!

ImageImage

Isn’t Hannah the cutest lil thing in this sunflower sundress!?

Image

I’ll take BOTH of those raincoats, please and thank you.

Rain or shine, Revival girls always killin’ it.

Can we talk about…

Gallery walls?

Thanks to Apartment Therapy, I’ve been returning to these photos on the daily while my roommate and I are deciding how to decorate the wall behind our couch. 

Image

This way just seems much cooler than one expensive huge art piece. AND you can hand-make the frames (OR JUST USE WASHI TAPE, THE TAPE OF THE GODS GRAPHIC DESIGNERS) or even have your friends make the art. Not only is the project affordable, but it can also be more meaningful than buying some obscure surrealist painting to impress your pompous, art-lover friends.

Image

Screw your friends!

 

MAKE A GALLERY WALL. 

Image

 

I love this muted color scheme; especially the rugged, open cement walls.

Pinterest Pics

Y’all…my roommate and I are total poster whores.

We fawn over every font. We praise every pattern. We swoon for spartan design.

I’ve been browsing around the posters on Pinterest and I’d like to share some of my favorites with y’all.

Image

Gotta have that local love!

Image

Image

Image

Minimalist TV show posters are always the coolest.

Image

Image

ImageImageImageImage

Y’all need to check out John Knoerl’s work. He does all of Passion Pit’s posters and he’s the coolest dude ever.

Follow him on his website and Instagram!

Ah! My girl! Did you know I danced on stage with Ms. Monae when she performed at The Varsity for an exclusive sneak preview of her recent album?

Because I did.

And now I can die peacefully knowing that I dougied with the queen of pompadours and sass.

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?

Sunday Mornings

I can’t wait to share some great things with you guys!

We interviewed our good friend Abby O’Sullivan over the weekend and are going to feature her this week, so look forward to that!

She’s a costume designer but has worn many different hats in her life.

Just an all around inspiring, creative boss lady.

Image

For now, scroll through the hundreds of Guy Catling images with me. I’m hooked.

He’s a graphic designer from Essex and his work is quite possibly my favorite thing ever at the moment.

ImageImageImageImageImage

Image

Image

I love war photography and vintage photos….so this is my shit.

ImageImage

Check out the rest of his cool things.

Happy Sunday, babes!
