Realness Report: Fashion Week, Kristen Stewart, Gaga

by Jamie Sanford on September 12, 2011

New feature! I have been sucked into the term “realness” from watching too many episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul’s Drag U, etc.

You can see the origin of talking about realness in terms of “passing” in this clip from Paris is Burning.

In this instance, realness I’m talking about is encapsulating a look or attitude from another person, culture, situation, etc.  It’s a broader definition, but it works for me and let’s go with it.

“Just out of the shower with a hangover” realness at the Alexander Wang Spring 2012 show at New York Fashion Week.

Kristen Stewart looks AMAZING in this month’s W Magazine, but as you can see from the picture, she is giving lots of Priscilla Presley realness.  Click here to check out the rest of the photos and an interview with Kristen.

Carnation realness from Lady Gaga.  Come on, look at that hat.  (In all seriousness though, how beautiful does Gaga look here? She looks fabulous with a pale lip and that blond hair, for about a week she looked just beautiful, without distracting from it with her fashion extremes.  I appreciate that part of Gaga too, but I really loved this look.)

Hook it up on Facebook with your suggestions!

Missoni for Target – My Picks

by Jamie Sanford on August 12, 2011

Target has released the look book for the upcoming Missoni collaboration on their Target Style Facebook page.

Naturally, I felt the need to pick favorites, to prepare myself for potential online shopping – I don’t dare attempt to go into a store to find things.

Let’s get on with my Missoni for Target picks.

These heels.  Mostly black but with a little something, a heel I won’t fall over in, and a gorgeous print on the inside? I’m in.

I don’t have kids, and I don’t know anyone with a baby girl that’s still a baby and not a toddler. However, I wish I did because this is the cutest little outfit!

So far, Missoni for Target is making me covet things that aren’t in my life, like little girls and a guest room for this fabulous bedding.

This robe isn’t just for bedtime right? I kind of want to wear it with a tank top underneath.

My response to things that are black and white is pretty Pavlovian.  I’m sure I’ve mentioned it on the blog before, but we went with black and white for our wedding (since I wear black 98% of the time, and I couldn’t get away with wearing black to my own wedding, it seemed like the best alternative) so I gravitate toward all things black and white.

Right, remember what I said about the black and white? That rug is calling my name.

Since heinous rain in NYC finished off my umbrella this week, I need a new one.  This is the only Missoni for Target item that I could justify purchasing out of actual need.

I don’t have any outdoor space, but now I need a patio to go with this patio set.  This is not much of a stretch from things I usually want from Target, I have been known to sit and relax in the patio furniture section when they have everything set up and fabulous. Of course I need a giant tent to hang out in all summer.

The full Missoni for Target lookbook can be seen here.  The collection comes into stores and Target.com on September 13th.

Sights & Sounds #2

by Jamie Sanford on February 13, 2011

Sights and sounds for this week!

First up, the audio recording of the big Glee halftime number. No, not the terrible halftime show on the actual Superbowl, the superior one that was put on later on Glee.  That show has been a little up and down but that number was STELLAR.  It’s a mashup of “Thriller” and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” and I really enjoyed it.

You can watch the full post-Superbowl episode of Glee here.

Speaking of Glee, Amber Riley looks fierce in this photo from Essence!

I really enjoyed Adele’s first album, and you can listen to her new album in full on NPR.

Outtakes from the Mini Darth Vader Volkswagen commercial! I love that kid so much.

My Uncle John sent me this video. Seeing as me and my Blackberry are always in a fight these days, I enjoyed it.

These kinds of things always make me feel better about myself in pictures.  This does look like less work than I’ve seen on other people though.

Grammys are on on tonight! I’m excited to see Lady Gaga perform her new song:

Have a good week everyone!

Sights and Sounds #1

by Jamie Sanford on February 6, 2011

New post for Sundays!

First up, the Volkswagon commercial that I’ve watched 5 times today.  This kid is brilliant and when he passes his Dad to go use the force on the car? That’s incredible.

Second, here’s a great video of my favorite figure skater Johnny Weir on Lopez Tonight, where he and George Lopez switch outfits.

My girl Britney Spears is back, and is teasing us for the next 12 days before the video for her hit single “Hold It Against Me” is released.  Here is today’s teaser video:

I was also exposed to a hot remix of “Hold It Against Me” – The Robots with Rayguns remix.  You should listen to it.

Last one – an oldie from the 90s.  I randomly heard this song during a trip through the shuffle setting on my iPod last week, and damn if it isn’t a great song.  I give you “Selling the Drama” from Live.

Handy info to store in your phone. (Unplggd)

Also from Unplggd, a collection of the best home gifts from IKEA.

These shoes are crazy hot. (Merci New York)

I have a lot of orange in my living room right now, but this makes me want grey too. (Apartment Therapy)

Time for last-minute decorations! 5 minutes tinsel wreath instructions. These are cute! (Creature Comforts Blog)

That’s all for this week.  I’ll be back next week for Boxing Day!
