Fab Links from Our Members
Shevia is always happy to see an article that encourages thrifting.
This vlogger’s review of trends for Fall/Winter 2021 struck a chord with Runcarla: “It wasn’t so much the images she used to illustrate her points, but rather the rational around the approaches that I found thought-provoking and of interest.”
UmmLila wanted to share this article from W Magazine on all sorts of people who embrace a style uniform.
She also thought this $69 little black dress made out of carbon emissions collected from steel mills was interesting.
Vildy found this video with “4 hacks to look elegant when you’re lazy” thought-provoking: “I happen not to relate to ‘effortless style’. I put a lot of effort into my outfit creation and I want that to show. I was struck by her focus on making intentional choices. That definitely sums up my style: Intentional. I needed that concept.”
The Bixie haircut trend is all over the internet. BlueJay loves it “because it’s ’90s hair with Ashley Judd, Lady Diana, Winona Ryder, Drew Barrymore, and Meg Ryan all sporting the look and now it’s back!”
