Happy Birthday, Kat Von D


True story: one of the GoJane writers’ mom had Kat Von D as a student in the eighth grade. And while Kat didn’t have any tats at the tender age of thirteen, she did have plenty of talent. We guess it shouldn’t shock us that the now famous tattoo artist showed plenty of promise at an age when most of us were more concerned with pizza than careers. Anyways, happy birthday birthday, Kat Von D!

Microtrend: Party Perfect Platforms


It’s not a secret that we’ve been seriously crushing on single sole heels, but don’t think that we’ve forgotten about our BFF, the platform heel. Check out our stylist’s top five picks for platform heels, and make sure to let us know which pair of sky-high platforms you’re loving.

1. buckled reptile finish platforms, 2. embellished platform pumps, 3. colorblock strappy platform heels, 4. star accent heel-less platforms, and 5. cut-out platforms

Check out some of our other fave shoes here.

Inspiration Gallery: Deep Cut Tanks


Need a cool girl staple to take you straight into late summer? You could try something classic, like distressed denim shorts and sandals, but we prefer to add a little edge with a piece that’s equal parts basic and unexpected. What is it? The deep cut tank. With armholes that brush the top of your jeans, deep cut tanks are the perfect antidote to a winter filled with coats, sweaters, and cardigans. Another perk? They’re plenty versatile- keep ‘em sporty with a brightly hued bandeau or add some sex appeal with a lace bralette.

How to: Do an Understated Smokey Eye


You know we love us wild, boldly hued makeup, but sometimes we crave something a bit more practical.

Anyways, check out this super easy tutorial, and make sure to let us know what you think.

Happy Birthday, Ke$ha


With plenty of tracks guaranteed to get the party pumpin’, along with an aesthetic based almost entirely on the idea that the more glitter, the better, Ke$ha is the kind of girl we’d totally want to party with. Plus, we think she’d be rad to spend the day with scavenging our local thrift shops for leather jackets and bodysuits reminiscent of Jane Fonda circa 1983. Today is the songstress’s 26th birthday and as such, we’re celebrating with tons of photos.


Are you a Ke$ha fan?

When it comes to figuring out what we’re lusting after, we’ve been taking our cues from pop culture- think Never Been Kissed (starring the lovable Drew Barrymore), old issues of Tiger Beat, and re-runs of TRL. Anyways, check out our ode to all things 90s, including images from the period, as well as a few modern interpretations, and make sure to turn up the Savage Garden while you do it.

Anyways, check out the latest and greatest, and make sure to let us know what you think.

Look We Love: Model Off-Duty


It’s not exactly a secret that we have an obsession with achieving model beauty, but lately we’ve been digging the off-duty style of some of our fave models, including Karlie, Cara, and Freja. After poring over tons of images, we’ve discovered that the ideal off-duty uniform consists of a menswear-inspired jacket, skinny jeans, and booties perfect for walking all day (and night). Of course, some of our fave models totally break the uniform rule, as you can tell by this totally rad gallery. Anyways, check it out and let us know how you get off-duty model style.

Quick Tip: Apply Lipstick with a Brush


Confession: we spend a lot of time watching our resident MUAs in action in hopes of picking up tricks for the perfect pout, mile-long lashes, and a clear complexion. The other day we saw our MUA carefully apply a bold fuchsia shade with a lip brush, and we have to admit that we were seriously impressed by the incredibly precise lines and staying power. The secret? Applying lipstick with a brush and not straight out of the tube.

Do you apply lipstick with a brush or straight out of the tube?

Looks We Loved from New York Fashion Week


Elegantly draped and tucked cocoon coats at Oscar de la Renta (with a little help from John Galliano), curly, full hair at Marc by Marc Jacobs, and plenty of leather. Yeah, we were loving this year’s New York Fashion Week, and we had one of our stylists pick out some of the looks she thinks you’ll totally love. Take a look and let us know what you think, deal?

Not only is the color palette perfect for spring, but the look is surprisingly easy. Wanna learn how to do it? Start reading.

Happy Birthday, Michelle Obama


With her penchant for bold hues and flirty prints, Michelle Obama is a modern day fashion icon. At 49, the FLOTUS still manages to impress us on the daily, and we love how she’s always willing to wear her fave looks repeatedly. Anyways, happy birthday, Michelle Obama!

Want in on Michelle Obama’s awesome sense of style? We suggest shimmying into a sheath dress and a pair of classic pumps

Inspiration Gallery: The Half-Tuck


It’s probably pretty obvious that we spend a lot of time reading fashion blogs, and maybe that’s why we’ve noticed a trend that is sure to be huge in 2013: the half-tuck. Everyone, from It Girl bloggers like Leandra Medine (of The Man Repeller) to the queen of chic, French Vogue’s editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt, are always spotted rocking the half-tuck, and we think it’s time to get in on the trend.  And the best way to get started?

Inspiration Gallery: Single Sole Shoes


Still struggling to think of the perfect New Year’s resolution? We’ve got one for you: add more single sole shoes to your wardrobe. We know it’s probably not difficult for you to agree that you need more shoes, but one of our fave trends is the return of single sole heels, wedges, booties, and boots. For those not in the know, single sole shoes are shoes without a hidden platform. And while you won’t be able to reach the heights you can in a platform, single soles offer a few other perks. Specifically, the silhouette feels brand new after seasons of platforms, and we’re loving how ladylike they look. Still don’t believe us? Check out our inspiration gallery of single sole shoes- after seeing some of your most beloved celebs and style bloggers rocking ‘em, you’ll change your mind.


Are you a fan of single sole shoes? How do you plan to wear ‘em this year?

Trend Alert: Lions


Remember when we were all excited because we realized how freaking easy it was to copy Rihanna’s look? Our fave piece of her standout look was a chain link necklace with a lion charm. We should have known that the Barbados beauty’s fierce accessory was a hint as to what was to come. Specifically, lions are kind of a big deal this year, and as such, we had our stylist pick out six pieces that are super hot right now. Take a look and let us know what you think, okay?

Quick Fix: Denim Jumpsuit


Remember when we were seriously bragging about Rihanna following our lead stylist on Instagram? A few of you were asking about Andie’s denim jumpsuit, and guess what we just got in? Hint: it begins with ‘A’ and ends with ‘ndie’s denim jumpsuit’.  Wanna snag this must-have piece? Click here.

More or Less: Polka Dot Pumps


Need an excuse to kick up your heels? Well, we’ve got one for you with these polka dot pointy toe pumps. Below you’ll see two nearly identical shoes, both sporting a fun and flirty polka dot print, but with one mah-jor difference: the price. The designer version of these shoes costs $350 whereas the GoJane version costs a modest $30. Take a look and let us know which version is designer and which version is GoJane.

Which shoe do you think is from GoJane? To find out, click here.

More or Less: Gold Ring


Sometimes it’s easy to forget that it’s the little things that have the biggest impact. If you’re not convinced of the power of all the small things, we suggest spending some quality time browsing our Shop By Outfits and reading your fave style blogs. A common theme? The importance of accessories. So, as you can imagine, when we saw this gold statement ring by an old couture house we were smitten. The only issue? The $300 price tag for something that we may end up losing next time we grab post-work cocktails. Fortunately GoJane has a nearly identical version for a mere $13.10. Take a look and let us know which ring you think is from GoJane and which ring is designer.
