Thursday Links: Pretty Pretty Prints Edition

1. The 100 Most Insane Patterns on The Mindy Project in Order of Insanity: Mindy Lahiri is notorious for her prints and if you didn't already know that, take a gander at this slideshow for a full on spectacle of stars, stripes and spots. Some of the descriptions are a little harsh, but I guess they are in keeping with the tone of the article. Also, we'd be happy to have any number of these prints in our wardrobes!

2. Bold Prints for Your Screen: Wanting to add a little print action to your everyday life, but not bold enough to take it to the Lahiri level? Well, check out these Desktop Designs from Design Love Fest to add some colour to your computer!

3. The dream lives: A feminist professor at Rutgers is teaching a class about Beyonce. One of these links had to be about Our Queen. Read the piece here. Time to go back to school?

4. And to the Ladies Who Rocked Plaid & Ruled the School: CLUELESS FOREVER. It's almost Friday, which means it's almost time to waste your afternoon surfing the web with no end in sight! Start with this Clueless Quote Quiz. We got 100%, like duh.

Looking at Girls in Magazines: Stunners Edition

And…we're back! One of us took a hiatus to go galavanting in Europe.

Mad props to the folks over at Elle Magazine for these November Women in Hollywood covers. I mean, some of these are not surprising, but others are truly stunning. That Annette Bening looks fabulous.

Tuesday Links: Aspirational Edition

Well it's almost October and what have you accomplished? New Years is right around the corner and, no doubt, we will all be looking back questioning our every choice. I'll tell you one thing: the ladies we mention below will not be questioning their choices.

1. Best Headline Ever: "Internationally acclaimed barrister Amal Alamuddin marries an actor" from The Business Woman Media. RE-SPECT. From the article:

Amal Alamuddin, a 36 year old London-based dual-qualified English barrister and New York litigation attorney who has long been a high-profile figure in international refugee and human rights law has gone against the trend for professional women in her field and married… an actor.

Read the article here. Let's celebrate this woman for something other than her clothing & choice in romantic partner.

2. Dreamy Celebrity Homes: You've probably already seen SJP's impossibly gorgeous NYC home. It recently went on the market and took the internet by storm a few weeks ago. But just in case you haven't and have a strong desire to feel even worse about your futon and Lack side tables…check it out here. Also recently revealed is Michelle Williams' stunning pad.

3. Celebrity Crushes for Feminism. Emma Watson's UN speech was all (the well deserved) rage last week and ever since some adorable famous faces have been lending their support to the #HeForShe campaign. Nothing is sexier than a man getting his gender equality on, so prepare to swoon your feminist heart out here. We love that this campaign is making waves.

Happy Tuesday!

Several Morning(s) After: TIFF Edition

It officially ended last night but we considered ourselves lucky to have had a figurative front row seat, those lines are mad hard to beat at the Toronto International Film Festival. It descends onto our unassuming city once a year and boy does it make us feel glamorous. And we weren't the only ones, TIFF excitement seemed at an all time high this year and the red carpet fashion matched. We've been following along (in person, from a safe stalker distance) but mostly online. Here are our favorite looks from the past two weeks:

Best of the best: Keira Knightley in a Michael van der Ham dress at "Laggies" Red Carpet ... … & in Chanel at "The Imitation Game".

Best of the ladies: Octavia Spencer in anything, but at the "Black and White" Premiere wearing Tadashi Shoji.

Holliday Granger at the "Riot Club" Gala Premiere wearing Mulberry.

Amanda Seyfried on the "While We Were Young" carpet in Valentino.

Reese Witherspoon in Dolce and Gabbana at "The Good Lie" premiere.

Rose Byrne at "Adult Beginners" in Phillip Lim.

Abigail Spencer at the premiere of “This Is Where I Leave You” in Dolce and Gabbana.

Kirsten Wiig at "Welcome to Me" where we observed first hand that she has killer legs!

Gugu Mbatha-Raw at “Beyond The Lights” in a Delpozo gown. This is just plain stunning.

Seeing Double: Sitcom Hangover Edition

There are few things we love more than sitcoms about young, single professionals trying to make it in a thriving metropolis. One of our currents, The Mindy Project is premiering it's 3rd season next week (huzzah for fall TV!). In anticipation we checked out some promo photos of the cast, they couldn't help but remind us of some dearly departed friends...pun intended.

BONUS : In a Diner Edition In Bed Editon (Mindy can tackle this for Season 4!)

Happy weekend, rest up you have a heavy week of Fall premieres ahead!

Looking at Girls in Magazine: Stunning Edition

We are absolutely loving Mindy Kaling on the cover of the October 2014 issue of FLARE magazine. We pretty much approve of everything in this shoot, with one big exception: those Mrs. Clause heels are a cry for help.

Kim and Kanye take Paris

What an Awesome and wondrous Labour Day gift we received from Kimye: A Wedding Special!

And bless Kim’s heart for trying so hard to make it seem like it was her first. The occasion was supposedly filled with many secrets and surprises. I attribute this to Kim herself being in the dark about most of her own wedding plans, but I digress. Between E! Online, Instagram and every single news outlet on the planet, I felt very few details hadn’t surfaced yet, but just in case you missed them: let's review some of the inside scoop revealed last night:

Un: Kim Kardashian is a Parisian Tourism Ambassador. Thank god we finally have someone to show us all of the hidden gems in this unknown city.

Deux: Having Kanye West, whom you've likely only met sparingly, pick out a dress for you to wear without any input is obnoxious. Also his opinion on slits is final.

Trois: Mr. West understands that best friend isn’t a person but a tier; a classic Mindy Lahiri life lesson. Those three groomsmen looked like a barrel of laughs didn’t they?

Quatre: North West! Oh wait. We’ve seen her already. I’ll buy someone a million Instagram likes if they can logically explain to me why Nori’s face had to be blurred on that iPhone after we had seen her two scenes earlier? KONFUSED.

Cinq: Kendall Jenner is a model. I hadn't heard.

Six: The Kardashians‘ family and friends have iPhones that capture flawless HD Video and high quality sound. Either that or they stole footage they paid paparazzi to capture in-between driving Rob Kardashian out of the country. *

*E! definitely filmed this episode.

Dashingly yours,


Let's join in just one last chorus, read: Happy Labour Day!

"Summer days will soon be over, soon the autumn starts..."

And sure your summers are never as scandalous as Baby's, you're no Penny on the dance floor & could never pull off Lisa's two piece, but everyone deserve a Kellermans style send off this time of year!

Happy Labour Day y'all!

Autumnally yours,

Looking at Our Queen in Magazines: Part 235

¡Saludos chicos!

Have we ever got a mood booster for ya today! Check out these photos from Issue 5 of CR Fashion Book featuring our fearlessly feminist leader: Beyoncé. She looks all kinds of stunning.

Morning After: 66th Emmy Awards

The Emmy Awards fell a little flat last night. We're pretty sure it's because a lot of the following folks we're about to highlight received ZERO airtime (note: we couldn't even find pictures of Idris Elba OR Louis C.K. OR Mark Ruffalo for our Best Dressed Man contender, unconscionable!) The usual winners prevailed, and, while it was nice to see our beloved Breaking Bad peeps take home the final piece of recognition they deserved, we were too busy wondering if we could hire Heisenberg to sabotage Jim Parsons & Modern Family next year to really enjoy it. Seth Meyers came off cheesy at times, and, in our opinion, was saved only by Amy Poehler and this hilarious Billy on the Street segment. But anyway, as always, the true joy in awards shows come from discussing the clothes! So without further ado, let's get started.

Best Dressed Ladystar: Teyonah Parris wearing bold and beautiful Christian Siriano. Runner Up Best Dressed Ladystar: Taylor Shilling wearing figure-flattering Zuhair Murad. Worst Dressed Ladystar: Lena Dunham wearing Giambattista Valli. Runner Up Worst Dressed Ladystar: Laura Prepron wearing Gustavo Cadile. Best Lady Pants: Robin Wright wearing Ralph Lauren. Best Red : TIE! Julia Louis Dreyfus wearing Carolina Herrara and Uzo Aduba wearing Christian Siriano.
