Casual Chic: Jessica Hart

Quirky, effortless and eternally cool, Jessica Hart‘s street style challenges casual dressing norms. The Australian model manages to consistently pull off eclectic pieces without looking over the top. It only makes sense that she’s in her choice of professional given her ability to actually wear clothes instead of letting them overpower her. Well done.

Save Teen Lives: The MStar Foundation Needs Your Help

527663104_l

Michelle Sanderbeck, 15

This picture was the last one she left us with on her MySpace page. The caption read “When you left I lost a part of me,” which at the time, were lyrics from Mariah Carey’s “We Belong Together.” She had no idea how much more those words would mean to us.

On March 4, 2006, one of my beloved friends was killed in a careless car accident. It wasn’t alcohol related, the driver wasn’t on drugs- instead, he was simply reckless (and stupid) and left a million broken pieces behind due to his actions.

Instead of staying in the shadows with their grief, Ray and Debbie Sanderbeck- a second family to me- created the Michelle’s Leading Star Foundation, or “MStar,” in order to save teen lives.

Michelle’s Leading Star Foundation was established by the family of Michelle Lee Sanderbeck in 2006. With the purpose of reducing the number of teenage deaths in America and to honor the life of Michelle Lee Sanderbeck and all others whose lives were claimed by Teen Drivers.

We know that with our combined efforts, we will make a difference in keeping our children/teens safe.

The Sanderbeck family has already played an incredible role in improving teen driving in the state of Ohio, but now they need your help. We’re in jeopardy of losing the special MStar Foundation license plates they worked so hard for. Another 350 plates need to sell this year to prevent them from going away. Proceeds of the plates go towards funding better driving programs in the state of Ohio.

Hello Sailor!

California-based Wildfox is about to take you back to the 1950s with a modern twist for their Summer 2013 “Hello Sailor” collection. The ladies behind the brand always embrace the importance of beautiful aesthetic detail and Kim Gordon’s styling for this particular lookbook is so cool beyond words. She also incorporated puppies into the shoot, so there’s that for any non-belivers.

“One of the most iconic images that exude confidence and femininity is none other than the 1950s pin-up girl. The vintage artwork is still used to showcase beautiful women of all shapes and sizes, which embodies the same cheeky and outgoing personality of a Wildfox girl.”

Here’s some of the fabulous, retro-inspired looks from Wildfox’s Summer 2013 collection.

AUDREY. HEPBURN.

If you don’t know why this is so important to me, then you shouldn’t be reading my blog. Vanity Fair’s May cover girl is AUDREY HEPBURN. I know it’s a really big cliche for ladies to be into Audrey (I was here first, bitches) and that women have been categorizing themselves as “An Audrey” or “A Marilyn” since the 1960’s.

Or a Jackie. You get it.

Remember this advertisement from Mad Men?

Remember this advertisement from Mad Men?

But this really makes my heart melt. I remember the Marilyn issue a few years ago. I plastered the photo spreads on my dorm room walls and even used it for a project in a magazine journalism class. Now that I’m an “adult,” I can assure you that this cover will be coveted and placed in an actual frame somewhere in our one bedroom.

Okay, done fan-girling. Here you go:
