Fashion in Film : Mean Girls (2004)

No “back-to-school” fashion in film segment would be complete without at least touching on 2004’s Mean Girls. Can you believe it’s been 10 years since it was released? The world has changed quite a bit since Lindsay Lohan and Rachel McAdams gave us one of our favorite (and most quotable) teen movies since Clueless, but one thing remains the same. The fashion.

Tthe clothes in Mean Girls still stand the test of time in so many ways. Who doesn’t love Gretchen Weiner’s plaid mini and t-shirt combos, or throwing a buttery cashmere cardigan over a simple tee with jeans? Or even having the guts to rock a look like Regina George’s not-so-advisable t-shirt cut-outs?

Now, please don’t bring back tracksuits, cheeky screen-printed shirts, or kitten heels (only Suri Cruise looks good in those), but there are a lot of lessons we can take from Mean Girls.

  • You are only allowed to wear your hair in a ponytail one day a week. – Okay, okay, this is extreme, but at the same time, wearing your hair in a ponytail too often will cause damage and breakage, so maybe they were on to something.
  • You can only wear track pants or jeans on Fridays. – While I’m a big fan of avoiding track pants outside of the gym in general, this isn’t the worst rule. If you’re in a bit nicer of an office, it’s probably good to avoid denim most days of the week.
  • On Wednesday we wear pink. - You won’t find me in pink too often (minus the pink velvet pants I happen to be wearing as I write this), but it’s nice to have staples in your closet you can wear week after week. My choice is usually black, it definitely makes getting ready in the morning a bit easier.

Hot Pants

Shorts – Lipslide from Anthropologie (via eBay) / Shirt – Gap / Tights – Hue / Jacket – Abercrombie & Fitch / Boots – Dolce Vita (similar) / Scarf – Vintage

Last weekend, I spent Saturday morning reading the book, I Want to Be Her! In the book, Andrea Linett mentions that one of her favorite outfits growing up was her “hot pants,” ie) shorts with tights underneath. Now, that’s not a style I’ve rocked in several years, but after I found these awesome ruffle shorts on eBay I knew that the only way I could wear them was to add opaque tights underneath.

I love being able to extend my summer clothing a bit further into the fall, and considering I’m all about that bass these days, adding tights underneath some of my shorter shorts definitely gives me a bit more confidence to rock them.

5 Things to Make You Feel Instantly Sexier

5-ways-to-feel-sexier

Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just feel totally blah? I’ve been super sick for the past few days and my sexiness factor is just missing. It happens to the best of us, so here are a few ways I make myself feel a bit sexier even on my most blah days.

  1. Put On Your Sexiest Underthings (even if no one else can see them) – There is something super satisfying about wearing a cute bra and panty set, even if no one but you know that they’re there!
  2. Swipe On Your Signature Color – I’ve mentioned the importance of having a signature lip color before. It makes you feel great and put together in a snap. 
  3. Slather On Some Luxurious Body Lotion – There’s nothing like silky smooth skin with a great scent to make you feel like a million bucks.
  4. Sleep In The Buff – Not going to lie, but I do this every night. Not only am I much more comfortable this way, but I love the feeling of high thread count sheets against my bare skin.
  5. Dance In Heels – You know how Beyonce looks super sexy every time she’s on stage dancing? Yeah, it’s definitely a state of mind. Even if you’re in your yoga pants, throwing on some heels and getting down will definitely help you channel your inner diva.

Spicy (and Healthy) Popcorn!

spicy popcorn topping, spicy popcorn, healthy popcorn recipe

I am a total sucker for popcorn. It’s an easy, low-cal, light snack, but my problem is that generally, I use popcorn as a vehicle for butter. Lots and lots of butter.

Which kind of takes away the whole healthy thing amiright?

So when I tried the spicy popcorn at my favorite bar in Brooklyn, I was totally hooked. It didn’t leave me feeling all greasy, and yet I couldn’t stop eating the popcorn while I was there.

Of course, now I’m back in the west, and there is no One Stop spicy popcorn to be found, so what’s a girl to do? Try to recreate it and make my own of course.

Here’s the best part, in addition to being low-cal and delicious, this spicy popcorn has some pretty awesome health properties too like:

  • Avocado Oil – Lowers blood pressure, full of Omega-3 fatty acids that have been show to help prevent tumor growth, help promote collagen production (goodbye wrinkles).
  • Turmeric – Anti-inflammatory properties, has properties in it that help prevent heart disease, cancer, and perhaps even depression.
  • Cayenne Pepper – Can help break up and get rid of mucus from colds, metabolic booster that can help promote weight loss, can also aid in digestion.
  • Garlic Powder – Strengthens your immune system, and lowers bad cholesterol.

So here’s how you make this deliciously spicy and healthy popcorn powder:

Ingedients:

  • 2 TBSP sea salt
  • 1 TBSP black pepper
  • 1 TBSP garlic powder
  • 2 TSP paprika
  • 2 TSP cayenne
  • 2 TSP turmeric
  • 2 TSP chili powder
  • 1 TSP hot and spicy mix (or you can substitute red pepper flakes)
  1. Mix all ingredients to taste. You can adjust based on your preference, but I love super spicy so this was the mix I went with.
  2. This is best over air popped popcorn with NO additives. Drizzle avocado oil liberally over the top (my life has changed since I put it in a bottle like this) and shake the powder over top. Enjoy!
