Wardrobe Wednesdays: Meghan Markle @ 2017 Invictus Games

Meghan Markle fashion 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony

Looks like Meghan Markle isn’t only super stylish on screen as Rachel Zane in USA’s Suits.

The actress made her first appearance with boyfriend Prince Harry in Toronto on Saturday during the 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony wearing head-to-toe burgundy.

She paired a pleated chiffon dress with a leather jacket and a suede clutch bag, all in a similar shade of burgundy. It’s so reminiscent of Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year Marsala.

I would be so afraid to wear one color throughout, but Meghan Markle is definitely working this!

The original dress is sold out (no surprise there), but see below for the original jacket, marked by *, and some similar items to copy this look.

Jacket:

1. Wilson’s Leather, $269.99

2. Shoes.com, $690.00 *

Dress:

3. Abercrombie & Fitch, $78.00

4. ModCloth, $79.99

Bag:

5. Steve Madden, $24.99

6. Nordstrom, $1,450.00

August Favorites: Target’s $5 Wines & Gummy Bear Van Gogh

I’m not gonna lie, August 2017 was pretty fun.

As expected, some amazing tunes were released during the month. I had to cut my list down or else this monthly favorites would be basically all music.

Here are my favorites in pop culture and entertainment for August!

Favorite News Articles

1. Target is launching a line of $5 wines. I repeat: TARGET IS LAUNCHING A LINE OF $5 WINES.

2. This artist made a Van Gogh painting out of gummy worms. The idea seems fun but then ants are sort of a species that tend to like sugar…

3. Companies like Hertz started cashing in on the 2017 solar eclipse. They got so excited and overbooked, then ended up having to cancel reservations. What even.

4. Justin Trudeau fell out of a kayak. And he might have done so on purpose?

Favorite Music

1. “Alone Together” by LEISURE. These guys are just phenomenal. So much groove and chill!

2. “Hurt Nobody” by Andrew Belle. I wish the tickets for his NYC show weren’t sold out so I’d have a chance to hear this live.

September Favorites: Baseball Game Proposal, Wild Front’s “Rico” & ‘Suits’ S6 Finale

dd4539f1-f570-4b86-9cf6-f0ec61593f87

September 2016 will officially go down as the month of the worst celeb separations.

First it was Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Then Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber. And perhaps the worst was the recently wed Colleen Ballinger and Josh Evans.

My heart is a million pieces.

I still found a few things to smile about during the month of September. Let’s try to forget all this sad love nonsense and focus on the fun stuff in pop culture and entertainment from September 2016:

Favorite News Articles

1. This guy dropped the engagement ring in the abyss that is the baseball stadium stands while proposing on the Jumbotron. How awkward would that have been if it was never found!

2. Rihanna dressed in a furry red heart. Right after that romantic drama with Drake at the MTV VMAs…

3. Lady Gaga is performing at the 2017 Superbowl Halftime show! This is going to definitely be one to watch.

Favorite Music

1. “Rico” by Wild Front. If I had a car and a license I’d probably “drive all night” to this song. Cannot wait for WIld Front to release new music!

2. “Mieux Que Tout” by Paradis. Paradis’ album was so well waited for. They needs to come to NYC soon.

3. “Tough” by Goldroom. I’m demanding a re-release of West of the West. All of the songs need to be sung by Goldroom himself! What is this nonsense!

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Victoria Beckham dancing in Times Square. It bothers me that I work so close to Times Square and I was not around for this.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Jessica Pearson in ‘Suits’ Episode “Trust”

Jessica Pearson, Suits Episode -Trust-

Jessica Pearson brought on the ruffles in last week’s episode of Suits on USA.

I love how Jessica (played by Gina Torres) paired this sophisticated white ruffled collar vest with a simple black pencil skirt in the episode “Trust”. The outfit just screams “LADY BOSS”!

As you might have guessed, Jessica’s style doesn’t come cheap. The top costs over $1,000. Nope. Clearing the crud out of your eyes will not take any zeros off that number.

See below for the original vest (marked with *) and a few alternative pieces to help you Lady Bosses out there copy this look! Be sure to catch Suits tonight as well on USA at 9pm.

Top:

1. Orchard Mile, $1,156.00*

2. Nordstrom, $1,035.00

Skirt:

3. H&M, $12.99

4. ASOS, $16.50

July Favorites: Bill Clinton with DNC Balloons, Goldroom’s Verano Mix & ‘Suits’ S6 Premiere

 

july 2016 faves

Since moving to Manhattan, by life’s been a bit hectic, so this is a late monthly faves post.

I spent the first few days of July celebrating Independence Day in Washington D.C. with my parents before the big move, and then I didn’t have much time to enjoy news, TV or YouTube.

So this is going to be a short one. Enjoy my favorites for the month of July 2016!

Favorite News Articles

1. Bill Clinton was amazed by the DNC balloons. Did they not have them at his DNC back when he ran or something?

2. Mr. Potato Head’s makeover. Yup. I dig it.

Favorite Music

1. “Verano Mix 2016” by Goldroom. Loving “Low Pressure” by Wild & Free and “It’s a Memory” by Fred Falke on this mix. So. Good!

2. “Summer Romance” by Coral Casino. The bilingual fusion in this is fire!

Favorite Celeb Instagrams

1. Rachel Ballinger get’s the gold. Congrats, girl. You deserve it 🙂

2. Shirtless Nico Tortorella. #niconiconico

Favorite TV Episodes

1. Suits, “To Trouble.” Leave it to Jessica, Harvey and Louis to get baked when the firm is going down the drain.

Favorite YouTube Videos

1. PJ gets “Trapped in the 90s.” I wouldn’t mind getting trapped in history with PJ at all.

2. Alonzo Lerone tackles those Arthur memes. My childhood is ruined.

Happy August!
