OBSESSED: A BEAUTIFUL MESS, OXBLOOD, AND CANDY
We bring you a pretty big list today. Some old meeting new, some bloody ox, and a way to rot your teeth – sounds like a blast, right? Also, in #sonotobsessed we warn you of a sickness that is going around, one that left us in bed watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians for 2 days straight – we are sure they were to blame for the vomitting. Guess we’re a little masochistic.
Totally obsessed with Shawn Huckins and the fact that he blended the old school with the new. What is greater than witnessing those folks stuck in paintings from the American Revolution using the text lingo of today?! While they are probably rolling over in their graves from the lack of grammar painted across their faces, this generation thoroughly enjoys it. I mean, lyke, c’mon. PS. His pieces will be exhibited at L2Kontemporary in LA as part of Ten Years Drawn starting November 16th.
LEFTOVER/50% OFF HALLOWEEN CANDY
I shouldn’t have to explain why this is an obsession. You got dressed up, and if you were smart, you went door to door for free candy. Now, you will have a pillowcase full for weeks – or maybe days, either way, you did the right thing. If you didn’t trick-or-treat, fine, but now you need to make your way to the store and purchase the bags of candy that are now on sale. Your stomach may hate you, but we know unwrapping those itty bitty treats felt good at one point. That is really all that matters.
DL&CO SEVEN DEADLY SINS PLATES
Thanksgiving is coming up, and if you are hosting a small dinner party, you should totes serve meals on these plates. What better way to discuss what you are thankful for while clearing your plate to reveal a sin you more than likely committed through the course of 2013? No, not a good idea? Whatever. If anything, they will be a conversation piece. And they just look really badass.
We bring you another color for this installment: OXBLOOD. It’s the deep, dark red that’ll have you looking incredibly chic for fall – if the season ever makes its way to LA. To get this perfect color, it takes a few simple steps: find an ox, go to the desert, consume peyote, sacrifice the ox by draining all it’s blood and pray to Anna Wintour and Nick Wooster for their blessings on your #ootd posts. Wait, No. That doesn’t sound right. Well, whether you hand dye your clothing in actual ox blood or pick something out from your favorite brand, you’re autumnal wardrobe will be set with this color! #So2012 #StillNotOverit
YOU SHOULDN’T DATE A GIRL WHO READS BY CHARLES WARNKE
“You, the girl who reads, make me want to be everything that I am not. But I am weak and I will fail you, because you have dreamed, properly, of someone who is better than I am.”
Sometimes we sit and wonder how to properly get our voice heard here in our office – and we mourn the fact that we cannot always come up with something so beautifully written – like this essay. All we have to say is, pick up a book and dream away lovers because life is nothing without some well put together prose.
Do you need another reason to hate that you cannot DIY? Or that your home doesn’t look like a page torn from a catalogue? OR that you have yet to perfect that fancy cocktail or meal? You do, and the girls of A Beautiful Mess have got everything you need from a blog down to a science. They make DIYing look like a piece of cake, they make cake, and they give you tours of adorable homes. They also show off their super cute style and how to have parties like a pro. OH AND, they did a series of unique cocktails for their friends! How does it get any cuter than that? Anyway, check them out if you want ideas to put on your “to-do” list that will more than likely never get executed. We are guilty, but we go back for more.
CHILDISH GAMBINO FREESTYLE
First, he is a babe. Second, that has nothing to do with the greatness of this freestyle, we just had to get it off our chest. So back to him on with Sway in the Morning, rapping over Drake’s “Pound Cake,” and executing it with perfect effortlessness. Midway through the rap he breaks meter and discusses the power of money – while smoothly going back to rhyme. We can’t wait for his album to come out next month. We’re dyingggg.
While we enjoy seeing you rocking the minis and showing off those gorgeous gams, maybe it is time for a change. Take it back to the 1800s where the ankles we the most gawked at body part and find the perfect midi skirt. They are classic. They work for any body type and were basically made to be paired with some pointed stilettos. Our eyes have been on Tibi’s variety of full silk skirts (and the one leather one…gahhh) someone buy them for us ASAP.
SNL AND ITS LACK OF DIVERSITY
Basically, get it together.
Reason why we were not able to give you #Obsessed last week. It was killer. Use that hand sanitizer ALWAYS.
