The Olympic Games are well underway, and yet one of its biggest issues continues to loom at large – the Russian government’s discrimination against the LGBT community. Enter Principle 6, a campaign to remind all of the Olympic Charter’s prohibition of just such prejudice at the Games.
It’s not easy being Alexander Wang. Between responsibilities helming both the house of Balenciaga and his own eponymous line, the 30-year-old is currently shouldering more than most take on in a lifetime. No matter to him, it seems. He carries it all with natural grace and insoluble ease (and a big happy smile; every time I see him he’s smiling!).
Wang pioneered luxe sportswear so it’s fitting that he’s expanded with sportswear “objects” as he calls them, and, well, I’m obsessed! At first I kind of rolled my eyes thinking these fell into the category of superfluous nonfunctional frills, and while maybe spending $135 on a jumprope is superfluous, it’s function and to-die-for chic.
Have you been sticking to that New Year’s resolution to hit the gym? Even if you haven’t, it’s never to late to get back in the game, and nothing will help motivate you more than cute workout gear! Baggy, old tees and sweats hide your body, even the parts you’re proud of.
There are those of us who overindulged this holiday season (myself, included)…actually, this entire season! Much to my chagrin, I have gained more weight than I’d care to share. Not only can’t I fit in my skinny jeans, anything fitted makes me feel uncomfortable and depressed.
My latest obsession is texture blocking. First, it was all about the bags (what’s new?), then after seeing Mad Men’s Jessica Pare in a quilted Holmes & Yang leather bomber with elbow patch detailing, I decided to take it to jackets as well. Which is your favorite?
