It’s been a long time since we’ve shown some blog love, and what better way to come back than to feature the AMAZING Who What Wear. Co-creators Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power have brought the world the perfect style guide, complete with how-to tips and wardrobe inspiration. Whether it’s summer beauty ideas, the best neon accessories under $100, or identifying the wedges Kate Bosworth was wearing, Who What Wear is the go-to guide for everything fashion. The Power-Kerr team is the ultimate cocktail: 2 parts LA style, 1 part New York edge, a dash of glam, and a slice of cool. Together these ladies have brought us an amazing site that will forever be a bookmark, and we in turn have gotten two totally chic style gurus.
The view from Hillary’s desk. On the left is her ipad, which she carries in a Dodocase (it looks like a moleskin notebook) and a Smythson notepad that says Keep Calm And Carry On on the front (a gift from Teen Vogue’s Danielle Nussbaum). The chair is vintage and was recovered in black-and-white tweed for a Chanel-inspired look.
Last night my friend Chelsea and I hit up The Grove to celebrate the launch of Styld.by, a digital experience from GAP featuring Hillary Kerr and Katherine Power of WhoWhatWear. We were greeted at the door with lemon drops. LEMON DROPS! Seriously, how could you not have a good time if you’re greeted with, yes again, lemon drops. Maybe you can’t tell how much I like this drink, but whatever.
This Styld.by movement has brought in some of the biggest online fashion influencers to style looks from the GAP’s new BE BRIGHT collections including folks from Refinery29, MOG, Lookbook.nu, FabSugar, Rue, and WhoWhatWear. So it’s no surprise that the invite encouraged attendees to come styled in their favorite brights and show off their unique way of wearing color.
I love wearing color so this isn’t new territory to me. I brought out a pair of white shorts and paired them with a red-orange blazer over a long-sleeve teal collar shirt accessorized with my thick-frame Tom Ford glasses and my leopard Penelope and Coco oxfords.
The party wasn’t just colors and lemon drops, they also had a funky nail art bar and DJ Jilly Hendrix on the ones and twos spinning the tunes. Such a fun night.
