super saturday with qvc!

Super Saturday, QVC’s annual mega sale in the Hamptons — where all net proceeds benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund —  was in full effect today, and we were, once again, thrilled to be a part of it!

Not only do the proceeds from the sale go to the OCRF, but those of you who couldn’t participate in person, can help generate funds by pinning. Yes, pinning. If you’ve got a Pinterest account, then you’ve got the means to help fight ovarian cancer. Every time the image below is repinned, QVC will donate $.50 to Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, up to $5,000.

Get pinning tartelettes!

Beauty battle: Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O?

Both incredible beauties, fashion icons, and strong, elegant women who undoubtedly shaped the world around them. It seems almost impossible to compare the two, but we’re going to do it anyway.

hot summer color: hot pink!

Right now, the only things I want to wear are head-turning shades of solid color. I’m not sure if it was the overwhelming onslaught of soft, subtle neutrals that pervaded our wardrobes all spring, but suddenly my thirst for bright, bold, nearly shocking pops of color is unquenchable. And the most satisfying of them all has to be hot pink. Just one swipe of this electric hue is enough to perk me up – whether in the form of a sunning statement necklace, the perfect satchel, or even my all time favorite childhood chewing gum.

Here are a few of the fuschia items I’m lusting after today:

girl crush: Carey Mulligan

We fell in love with this charming Twiggy look-a-like the moment we saw her in An Education. Although she has the unassuming looks of a naïve waif, her complex, understated performance packed a punch and left us thinking, Who is this girl? She took even darker turns in Drive and Shame, and managed to hold her own against two powerful leading men. This fall, she’s at it again with Leonardo DiCaprio, this time as one of our favorite literary characters, Daisy Buchanan, in The Great Gatsby – and we’re sure she won’t disappoint.

 

Who’s your girl crush?

When it gets as hot as it’s been the last few weeks, it’s hard to feel motivated to get dressed up. That’s why the best summer dressing is easy and breezy – like the perfect July afternoon. Our favorite fashion bloggers have a knack for looking simultaneously coiffed and effortless, even on the steamiest of days.

To inspire your hot-weather wardrobe, here are some of the coolest summer staples we’ve seen on these blogging fashionistas lately.

hot summer color: teal

Teal: what color is truer to summer than this cool, inviting shade? For me, the thought of it instantly conjures up images of ocean waves, pristine lakes, Navajo-inspired jewelry, picnic blankets, friendship bracelets, tongue-staining popsicles, and sparkling pools.

Even in the fashion world, the happy color pops up everywhere during the summertime… perhaps because it looks so gorgeous against bronzed skin.

Here are a few teal items we’re coveting this week:
