I tend to gravitate towards less polished editorials. My favourite editorials are paired back, relaxed and the model generally looks like she's having fun. I love the casual 90s vibe here, especially with the bomber jackets, I'm still pining over them. I just love the silhouette.
Solange is such a babe. I adore her True EP and Losing You is still one of my favourite jams. I captured a couple of screengabs from a teaser of her latest video for Locked in Closets. Instantly I was inspired by Solange's unique ability to wear colour and clash prints effortlessly.
Sous Style is my perfect kind of
zine. Not that I read a lot, but this one is packed full of fun, informative
features on home, food and lifestyle. Sous Style's headmistress Pippa Lord is based
in Brooklyn which already gives the website serious cool points from the word
go. You only need to read their Manifesto once to know
that these sassy girls don't take themselves too seriously. Updated daily, Sous Style
is laden with high-res images and interesting links which send me clicking off
in different directions. I particularly like the 'Round up of the six things
you NEED to see today' - yes of course, I needed to see Vogue Uk's article on modern
art deserts (actually I really really did).
One of my favourite features include
Birthday babe' [pictured above] dedicating a recipe to a celebrity's birthday.
Using off-hand quotes from celebs inspires a brownie and honeycomb ice
cream cake (YUM) for Lady Gaga, the French 76 for
Kate Moss, and a baked sweet
potato for Oprah. Oh and they don't only whip up witty celeb trivia, the 'Organise
the chaos' section is brimming full of hints and tricks from nifty
spring cleaning tips, to a guide on spring house plants.
They also do some of the best countdowns ever - The 10
Best Egg-Topped Dishes - really? I'm hooked [side note: I love a top five/ten/twenty
- I don't really care what you're counting down to, I just really want to
see what's number 1]. The 'I Want It'
page leaves me wanting hamburger wrapping paper, Brad Pitt on a pillow (not in
that way), and pink ombre wooden spoons. Honestly, this site is dangerous.
