Hashtagging #Hashtag

You may have caught this hilarious video this week that Jimmy Fallon, Justin Timberlake and one of my favorites, Quest Love, put together. They bring to our attention how bad we all sound sometimes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and now even in daily conversation now that we are “hashtagging” everything even outside of social media.

I’m guilty of this too (#oops), so while these hashtags help us get our thoughts trending on these networks, they’re also becoming overused.

So while I don’t endorse this in daily conversations, I thought how perfect it would be to share my #FridayFavorites this week via my favorites from Instagram with nothing but hashtags.

#FridayFavorites / Fashionable Things That Aren’t Fashion

New York Fashion Week is just weeks away, so before you get sick of me taking strictly fashion for a while, I thought I’d give y’all a break and talk about some of my favorite fashionable things this week that are not…wait for it…fashion. Enjoy these #FridayFavorites and let me know what you think of them.



This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Ball jar and like a good Brooklynite, I’m celebrating. The company released a vintage style blue edition of these all purpose jars. I just picked up a pack and am using them to carry my iced coffee in the morning and even store nuts and dried fruit. You can get them here from K-Mart for just $10 for a pack of 6… and join me for the next “Secret Cool Things In Brooklyn” meeting. Just kidding. My friend Lindsay swears I attend those.


Speaking of all things cool, I hereby declare the indie song of the summer “Psychic City” by Yacht. This song will make you forget about “Blurred Lines” and that Daft Punk made a comeback this season. I guarantee we will see models strutting down the runway to the Portland-based electro-pop duo,  Yacht at New York Fashion Week coming up. Even Marc Maron just interviewed the founder of this group on his podcast, WTF this week. If you haven’t been listening to these beats yet, I apologize that you will have a bubble pop sound in your head for weeks, but you won’t regret it.

Okay, well I guess this is kind of fashion-y, but I’m excited to share with you that Fohr Card has featured me as one of the select blogs to follow and get inspired by during Fashion Week s/s 2014! For those of you that aren’t familiar with Fohr Card, it’s basically a resume of stats that companies can look up to see a blog’s followers and influence. It’s a powerful tool that’s now being prevalently used in the industry and I’m pretty honored to be in the spotlight on there among some major sites at the moment.

#FridayFavorites / What to Wear For Today’s Weather


I met someone the other day that when they found out that I was in fashion, they asked if I was into the Pose app. Just when I thought I was one of the few insiders that knew about it, she told me that’s basically how she decides what to wear each morning. I never thought about it that way. I’ve been posting my outfits you see on here with the brands I’m wearing, but people are actually using it as a tool the way you would use Pinterest to decorate your house.

Another revelation I recently had about Pose is that I can use it to decide what to wear, based on the forecast. Genius, right? As a New York City girl, I’m a slave to dressing for the weather:

“I can’t wear those suede shoes today because there’s a 50% chance of rain!”

“It’s suppose to be 60 degrees in the morning and 80 by noon. What the heck do I wear for that when I’m out all day?”

“Weather.com said flash flood warning. Am I going to be the only crazy person on the subway wearing wellies when it’s dry out?”

You feel me on this one?

I decided to sign up for the Pose app‘s dress for the weather feature, which based on the weather in my location, will email me every morning with outfit ideas for both casual and fancypants looks.

If You Can’t Run, At Least Look Like You Can.

Workout clothes are probably less of a focus in my wardrobe. I have a drawer that all of my athletic wear, which isn’t much, literally gets thrown into (no thanks to my cat, who for some reason loves to tear everything out of the drawer weekly).

I will say aside from my beloved Lululemon pants, these are my favorite workout wardrobe staples—even if this yogi is easing into running with the “From Couch To 5K” app:

Anything Stella McCartney for Adidas.
Her designs take function  (wicks away sweat) and style (hello, mesh panels!) and marries them nicely for every bit of the collection. Who said workout wear has to be boring in black?

Workout gear from T.J.Maxx.
The running pants you see here are my favorites because they’re breathable and they have an inside pocket for my keys and they’re probably a fraction of the price of the average running pant. I like to wash my workout clothes after every wear, so I can’t spend a lot on things that won’t last too long.

Brooks running sneakers.I got fitted for sneakers from the running shop, JackRabbit, and they recommended these for my feet. They’re also reasonably priced and while they have no frills, they feel great on my feet. Fancy sneakers are for show—make sure you have something that works well for your feet.

Twistband Headbands.I’ve been obsessed with these since getting bangs and the dilemma of having hair in my face while working out. The best part is that my bangs look totally normal post-run.

Coloud Headphones. These aren’t made for running, but they block out everything around me so I get in a zone. I also never get them tangled thanks to their flat design and they come in a bunch of colors—so of course I can coordinate with my workout wear.
