Red carpets are some of my favorite things to watch. Everyone gets super creative with their looks. I picked out a few of my favorites from this award season to share.
I recently purchased a jean skirt, which for me was something truly outstanding. I’ve wanted one for a long time, but I could never find the ideal one that fit me properly around my waist and wasn’t too tight or too long. Issues, man. I thought this dream skirt didn’t exist, UNTIL my friend who was visiting came home from Zara with it in hand. My dream turned into a reality, and the next day I dragged her back to try it on for myself. On a whim, I ended up buying it. lol are you really surprised?
Ever look at someone’s flawless makeup in awe and confusion as to why you can’t get yours to look that perfect? Well, Maddie Rice is that girl we’ve all caught ourselves staring at and this week I was lucky enough to get the inside scoop on all of her secrets. Follow Maddie’s steps for “going out” makeup and prepare to wow the crowd at Homebar this Thursday, or at least the few that will remember.
My pal Mary Sanford McClure started a fashion blog, Sanford Standard, this past April. Now that she’s gotten into the swing of blogging, I couldn’t wait to ask our fellow mustang some quick q’s.
Page Walker is everything; she’s smart, gorgeous, creative, sweet, and trés chic. She’s a member of SMU’s Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority, competes on the Ad team, has interned for D Magazine, styled for Free People, along with a slew of other credentials that set her above the rest. Even with the pressures of school, her extra-curriculars, a social life, and the need for sleep, she maintains her poised demeanor.
If you haven’t met her I’d have to say you’re definitely missing out.
Keep killin’ em Page!
You’ll either spot him on campus with his bike or you’ll just spot him in general for what he’s wearing to class that day. Let me introduce you to Julian Ryles– a junior from San Francisco, California whose style has a lot to do with where he’s from. Dressing comfortably over dressing flashy is his motto, but let’s be honest…even when he dresses comfortably it’s not your typical t-shirt and basketball shorts. Not only is his style great, but he also has killer taste in music to go with it. (Ask him for song recommendations, you won’t regret it) Thankfully we were able to sit down with him recently to get a glimpse of who Julian Ryles really is.
SS: Who are your style icons?
Julian : Arthur Ash, Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Ryan Gosling, and JFK.
SS: What is your favorite piece to shop for?
Julian: Watches. Because like shoes, it says a lot about a person. I’m into square vintage watches and ones that are hard to find.
SS: What would you describe your style as?
Julian: I would say my style is very California-hippie-urban based.
SS: What does every guy need in his closet? And why?
Julian: Every guy needs a good pair of vans. They’re great to just throw on, and even when they’re beat up they still look good.
SS: What is something you absolutely have to bring with you when you walk out the door?
Julian: A nice pair of sunglasses. I use to be big on Oliver Peoples, but the quality isn’t that great so now I really like Persols.
SS: What are you most excited about in 2015?
Julian: I’m excited to hang out with my best friends Rehan, Jared, Austin and Ted. Those guys keep me grounded and they influence me everyday some way or another.
