INSPIRATIONAL LINKS, ETC.
It’s sock-free season. Wear some sandals. Don’t know which sandals you should wear? Well, lucky for you we’ve got some suggestions.
Also, we suggest you check out new boutique Anthom in Merrifield, Virginia.
WhoWhatWear: It’s hot outside. Reduce the length of your pants.
Oh god, the exposed pocket. Why??
Refinery29: Work-appropriate bags (for carrying your files and stuff) by indie labels.
Harper’s Bazaar: These are the things you need to have by the time you’re thirty. I’d settle for a nice apartment, a satisfying job, and a boyfriend who loves me back, but I’ll get to work on that signature flower ASAP.
If I’m making enough money by the time I’m thirty to be able to afford a pair of Manolo Blahniks (that I will without a doubt scuff up and destroy), I’m sure I won’t give a shit about what else I’m supposed to own, because I’ll have it all, baby!! I will also be running the new, re-imagined GOOP.
Vogue: Street style snaps from Dubai
Buzzfeed: ICYMI there’s a kid on Instagram who is so unoriginal he has to hack famous peoples’ fashion. What a jerk.
A totally adorable jerk. Follow @ministylehacker on Instagram.
And Macaulay Culkin wore this shirt:
Which reminds me, pizza.
