Is it just me, or does Kaia Gerber always look like a deer in headlights when the paparazzi manages to snap a pic of her without her hand over her face?
That aside, I’m getting serious lazy Saturday vibes from this look Kaia sported while leaving Nobu Restaurant in Malibu with her parents Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber.
The 16-year-old wore some extra strappy and heavily buckled black suspender pants from I.AM.GIA with a black high-neck top and a pair of good ol’ black Chuck Taylor Converse sneakers.
It’s official—I.AM.GIA sceptrum pants are the classy version of sweats, guys.
See below for the original pants (marked with *) and a few other items inspired by Kaia’s look.
1. Lulu’s, $40.00
2. GAP, $24.95
3. Doll’s Kill, $180.00 *
4. Etsy, $68.00
5. Famous Footwear, $30.00
6. Nike, $50.00
The Month of Love was quite lovely, and I’m so sad it ended so quickly. Ugh, why does February have to be so short?!
Pop culture brought us a few really insane/cute romantic news stories and some eargasmic tunes (my ears are still ringing well into March 2018, guys).
Let’s take a look at my favorites for February 2018:
Favorite News Articles
1. People are proposing out of avocados. They’re calling them avoboxes. (WHY.)
2. The Obamas revealed their portraits. Simply stunning. Also, is anyone else seeing Sasha when they look at Michelle’s?
3. That awks moment when Bekah from The Bachelor supposedly went missing. My parents would probably file a missing person’s report too if I didn’t answer their calls and texts within 24 hours, tbh.
1. “Midnight Summer Jam” by Justin Timberlake. Basically the “Let the Groove Get In” equivalent on this new album. I cannot get enough!
The Steven Kasher Gallery in Chelsea is exhibiting some pretty intriguing art lately, so I could not resist stopping by to check out She Could Have Been A Cowboy by Norwegian photographer Anja Niemi.
The exhibit features several photos (among other cowboy-themed photographs) of a woman in a blonde wig that covers her face. In some of the photos, she’s pictured in cowboy getup. In others, she’s in a pink dress or other feminine garments. When she’s dressed as a cowboy, she looks alive, moving her body in different ways. However, when she’s dressed in feminine wear (or sitting in the bath unclothed) she appears sad and still. The exhibit reminded me of the unhappy and unfulfilled 1950s housewife.
Of all the photos, “The Fall” stood out to me the most. The woman in the blonde wig is standing in the middle of the desert with a lasso in hand, wearing her sleek cowboy attire (loving the neutral pink-ish tan and brown palette, btw!), her body captured in a pose I guess one would strike if they were falling backward gracefully.
What is she falling from, though? There’s no horse in sight, so it must be something figurative. Is she falling back to into a reality where she’s not a cowboy, but instead a dreary housewife who has just taken off her sad pink dress to sit sulking in the bath?
Maybe I’m reading this wrong. Regardless, Niemi gives us some interesting material to think about this Women’s History Month.
Catch the exhibit at Steven Kasher Gallery before it closes on April 14, 2018!
Hollywood’s favorite blonde sweetheart Reese Witherspoon is in the new film A Wrinkle in Time, which is out in theaters this weekend!
Even though it’s based on a children’s book, I, as a 23 year old going on 24 still want to see it at some point. Maybe I’ll catch it on DVD in a few months.
She stars in the movie alongside Oprah and Mindy Kaling, and the trailer for it alone has my jaw to the ground with the powerful vibes of this all-girl trio! What a better way to celebrate an adaptation of literature AND Women’s History Month?!
In honor of Reese being in this film, I’ve decided to feature her for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. I found this amazing black-and-white sketch of Reese Witherspoon on Deviant Art, which, interestingly is by Rick Fortson (a.k.a. Dr. Pencil), the father of one of my favorite indie musicians Andrew Belle (born Drew Fortson)!
I love how sweet yet stern the actress looks in the sketch. It’s like she’s staring sweetly but also quite seriously into your soul.
If you love this sketch, you can buy it on Rick Fortson’s site.
Needless to say, the Scandal/How to Get Away With Murder crossover episodes were freaking stellar last week during TGIT. In addition to the plot, the Scandal half of the crossover, “Allow me to Reintroduce Myself,” featured some great winter fashion from Annalise (Viola Davis).
At the end of the episode, Annalise is walking down the courthouse steps with Olivia Pope wearing this gorgeous yellow wool trench coat. She paired the coat with a dark brown designer handbag, as the women of Shondaland usually do.
This is my favorite shade of yellow so I basically went nuts when I saw Annalise in this coat!
See below for some items inspired by the look.
1. ShopBop, $350.00
2. Banana Republic, $97.99
3. Neiman Marcus, $1,595.00
4. Neiman Marcus, $995.00
For the BET Social Awards last month, BET had a fun Museum of Meme in Soho, NYC that I couldn’t miss checking out.
While several of the pieces were quite funny, the meme featuring a painting of “Thriller” singer Michael Jackson stuffing his face with popcorn in a movie theater (essentially inspired by the meme that stemmed from this) with two real theater seats stationed underneath really got me.
The art card description next to the meme, titled Michael Jackson Eating Popcorn, features a quote from Dave Chapelle: “He wrote a Thriller. Thriller.”
I just thought it would be appropriate for Oscar Monday with its film themed humor, so, enjoy!

It’s finally March, so you know what that means?
WOMEN’S HISTORY MONTH IS HERE!
To celebrate all the lovely women in the world, all of March’s Fan Art Fridays will feature fan art of famous women. First up is the one and only Oprah Winfrey.
Oprah’s been floating in my mind this week after I read an article about a Starbucks barista that didn’t know who she was and asked how to spell her name on the cup.
I can’t even. Like, even without looking at Oprah’s face I’d know who she was just by her distinct voice!
Anyway, enjoy this phenomenal photo collage fan art of Oprah by Natu Zeta that I found on Instagram. I still haven’t fully understood how these photo collage art pieces work, but that doesn’t make them any less cool!
