Wardrobe Wednesdays: Kaia Gerber in Malibu

Kaia Gerber in Malibu nobu fashion

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


February Favorites: Avocado Proposals & Amy Schumer’s Wedding

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.

Favorite Music

1. “Midnight Summer Jam” by Justin Timberlake. Basically the “Let the Groove Get In” equivalent on this new album. I cannot get enough!

Gallery Mondays: “The Fall” by Anja Niemi

anja niemi the fall she could have been a cowboy

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!

Gallery Mondays: Dogs at Fabiane’s Place by Tom Bob

#tombobnyc #fabianesplace

I was walking to South 4 Bar in Brooklyn for a Sob Sisters meeting that Ada Calhoun invited me to this evening when I stumbled upon this lovely street art next to Fabiane’s Cafe & Pastry Shop by Tom Bob (@tombobnyc on Instagram).

As if the dogs of NYC weren’t cute enough, now there’s six little pups immortalized in street art outside a cute Williamsburg cafe.

Tom Bob depicts the dogs against a New York City skyline with a red house behind them featuring a yellow bird on top. Very Charlie Brown-esque.

It’s little things like this that make me love stepping outside of Manhattan, even if just for an hour or two.

P.S. I think my favorite is wide-eyed Indigo, who appears to be a tan poodle!

Guest Blog: 5 Most Inspirational Women in Hollywood by Nicole DaRosa

Hi, I’m Nicole from Glamorously You! I am so excited to be joining forces with The Whisper Box to provide you with some Hollywood-style inspiration. I talk a lot about staying inspired in your life and career on Glamorously You, so it only made sense to add an element of the entertainment industry on top of that for this collaboration! So without further ado, here are the 5 most inspirational women in Hollywood right now.

Reese Witherspoon

Ready to take on the #Nashville snow! ❄️❄️❄️#coldshoulder

A post shared by Reese Witherspoon (@reesewitherspoon) on

We can’t talk about women in Hollywood right now without bringing up the #MeToo movement, and Reese Witherspoon has solidified her place as a supporter and activist. During the tidal wave of women coming forward with their stories of sexual assault, Reese bravely admitted that she too was violated by a director at only 16 years old. Since then, she has led the path for other women to come forward and tell their stories through the #TimesUp initiative.

Greta Gerwig

Greta is definitely having her time in the spotlight this year, and hopefully it will last for a while. She has become the first women director to have her debut film be nominated for Academy Awards as well as becoming only the fifth woman to be nominated for Best Director in all of Oscar history. Her film Lady Bird has received critical acclaim and is considered to be one of the best films of 2017.

Ava DuVernay

Based on her amazing pieces of work, you would think Ava DuVernay has been in the film industry for decades. Surprisingly enough, her early beginnings were in journalism and public relations! It wasn’t until 2006 that she decided to write and direct her first short film. 12 years later and she has become the first female African-American director to direct a live-action film with a budget of over $100 million! Ava’s story shows us that it’s okay to not have everything figured out at a young age – your destiny will always present itself!

Tiffany Haddish

If I had to give an award to the biggest breakout star of 2017, it would absolutely be Tiffany Haddish. She was the comedienne that we would all see from time to time in small or guest starring roles, but it was her role in the hit movie Girls Trip that catapulted her to leading lady stardom. Since then, she has starred in her own Showtime comedy special, written a memoir, The Last Black Unicorn, and is set to star in a sitcom with Tracy Morgan and a movie with Kevin Hart. This girl is busy!

I had to give a shout out to one of the many young women in Hollywood who are making a name for themselves right now. Yara is best known for her role as Zoey Johnson on black-ish and its spin-off, grown-ish, but recently we have seen her using that platform to launch herself as an activist. She has a mentoring program, Yara’s Club, and has just launched her latest initiative, Eighteen x 18, which is meant to inspire young people to use their power to vote in this year’s midterm elections. And she’s done all that before she celebrated her 18th birthday!

The past year was a rough one for not only women in Hollywood, but for women all over the world. However, it is times like these that bring out the brightest stars! Which woman in Hollywood is inspiring you the most right now?

Nicole DaRosa is the founder and blogger-in-chief of Glamorously You, where she helps young women on their journey to becoming their most glamorous selves, inside and out. Through her writing, she encourages readers to feel confident in their true identities, partake in constant self-improvement, and sport a style of their own. Nicole describes herself as a glamorous introvert, lipstick connoisseur, avid journalista, and a lover of all things sparkly.

Gallery Mondays: Marble sarcophagus lid with reclining couple

Marble sarcophagus lid with reclining couple MET museum 5th ave

Valentine’s Day is coming up this week, so I figured it would be fitting to have some couple-themed art on this week’s Gallery Mondays.

I saw this lovely ancient Roman sculpture of a reclining couple on Museum Mile Day last year while visiting the Met Museum on 5th Avenue in NYC. The sculpture is from the Severan period (specifically 220 AD). I actually went back to the Met this weekend but the section of the museum where this piece is exhibited is roped off, so you can’t get too close to it anymore.

Made of marble, the couple, who are supposed to symbolize water and earth, rests on a sarcophagus lid. The face of the woman is said to have not been finish because her husband died before her.


When I first saw this, I thought that this was basically the ancient version of Netflix and chill. Like, come on. Tell me that pose isn’t similar to the way couples rest on the couch or bed for a Netflix session.

The Met has plenty more romantic sculptures like this one, so if you’re looking for a date idea that isn’t Netflix and chill, you should totally head there for a day at the museum with your boo!

You can still enjoy a your Netflix and chill after you get back home, though 😉

January Favorites: Bathroom Wedding & Jonas Brothers Reunion?


January 2018 was rough.

I feel as though a lot of the music that came out in January was very nostalgic, more so than usual. It’s as if everyone is longing to go back to a simpler time. Thankfully we can, just not for longer than the length of your favorite nostalgic tunes (and the stretch of your imagination).

Let’s take a look at some of the things in pop culture and entertainment that made January 2018 a little less rough:

Favorite News Articles

1. A New Jersey couple got married in a bathroom. Because the show wedding must go on.

2. There might be a Jonas Brothers reunion?! Be still my 13-year-old fangirling, beating heart.

3. CVS bans makeup brands from Photoshopping makeup ads. I love it when CVS takes initiative on things like this.

4. The A train is finally getting a revamp. Thank you, MTA, for finally rewarding this tri-borough train with a well deserved new look. I think some other trains are also getting upgraded…

5. RIP Rosie the Riveter. You will be missed, but never forgotten as a symbol for fierce, hard-working women.

Favorite Music

1. “Song for You” by Rhye. I am a new fan. Perfect track for Valentine’s Day this month.

2. “Stay Here” by Henry Green. He always knows how to break me down with those somber melodies, man.

3. “The Good Side” by Troye Sivan. Troye went all folk on us!

4. Cause for Concern, De Lux. Loving the old-school Beetles-esque vibes on this track.

5. “Tension (Interlude)” by BØRNSBlue Madonna as a whole is a great album, but this interlude definitely made it for me.

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Viola Davis getting all done up for Jimmy Kimmel. I love her hair like this so much!

2. Lupita Nyong’o at the Black Panther premiere. SLAY.

3. Chrissy Teigen on a girls weekend in Upstate New York. Look at that baby bump ❤

Favorite TV Episodes

1. The Good Doctor, “Islands Pt. 2”That kiss was well waited for, and now I have to wait until they write a trip to see Lea into the show sometime in the (hopefully) near future.

2. grown-ish, “If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late.” At what point did her thumbs decide not to tell her brain that she was sending waayyyyy too many text messages?!

3. Alone Together, “Pilot”. I love how awkward Esther is. It’s so cute it’s painful.

4. Bob’s Burgers, “V is for Valentine-detta”. Gotta love the way this episode begins. Also, Louise’s makeover had me screaming throughout the whole thing.

Favorite YouTube Videos
1. Nick Jonas on BBC Radio 1’s Heart Rate Monitor. Teenage me remembers that Selena Gomez incident. So cringey. Ugh.

2. Bath With Liza. Just when you thought she couldn’t act anymore crazy…

3. Maddie Ziegler does a clothing line haul. If I were a bit younger, I’d totally look into buying some of these.

The month of lovey-dovey is here.
