It was hard trying to find an outfit from a romantic comedy that also happens to feature the team colors of the New York Giants, who won the Super Bowl last night, but then we stumbled on this! Here is Jennifer Garner in Valentine’s Day (I guess it would have made more sense to post this on the actual holiday…) sporting an A-line blue skirt with a red and white polka-dotted cardigan, while Ashton Kutcher delivers her flowers at the school she teaches in. Garner certainly looks at home holding that textbook with her red nails and ponytail – if she didn’t get into acting, she would have made one adorable schoolteacher! This 2010 rom-com by Garry Marshall got horrible reviews, but it had some cute parts with these two, Julia Roberts and a bevy of other Hollywood A-listers. At least the girls got to wear some cute clothes! (Doesn’t that always make everything better?) Go Giants!

This “Tuesday Twosome” is extra special because it features some of our editors’ best friends! (Fun Fact: The sexy brunette on the right is actually this editor’s oldest friend, as we met in preschool!) The lovely couple, Danielle and Rob, got engaged this past Sunday and we’re so excited that they get their own post! Here they are at a recent wedding, looking smashing as usual! Danielle is wearing a very pretty pink strapless cocktail dress with an awesome statement necklace and matching bracelet, while Rob dons a light blue button-down with gray pants and a matching navy and silver striped tie. Their outfits are as well-coordinated as they are for each other. Congrats! ❤
While a pair of basic black pumps would have seemed like the obvious go-to choice for a week dedicated to Breakfast at Tiffany’s, we wanted to choose a shoe that was inspired by the actual movie – and we found it! Here are the “At Tiffany’s” pumps by Hey Lady. These pair of scalloped heels are inspired by Audrey Hepburn herself and are colored (what else?) but Tiffany’s blue! Designed by the Leung Twins, sisters Emily and Jessica describe their fashion evolution on their website from chunky Mary Janes to “skinny stilettos!” Girls after our own hearts! The 3 inch heels cost $340 and can be purchased here on Hey Lady’s site.
Wonder Woman is probably the world’s most popular female superhero, and honestly why wouldn’t she be? She’s sexy, strong, smart, patriotic, and well-dressed – the epitome of the modern feminist. Wonder Woman was first featured in All Star Comics #8 in December of 1941 – the same month as the Pearl Harbor attacks! It’s so surreal Wonder Woman has been around that long. She is a princess of the Amazons and is known as Diana of Themyscira, aka Diana Prince when she moves to the United States. Wonder Woman was created by William Moulton Marston, a psychologist famous for inventing the polygraph. He wanted to create a superhero that fought with love instead of fists. When he presented the idea to his wife, Elizabeth, she said “Fine. But make her a woman.” Marston wrote in 1943: “Not even girls want to be girls so long as our feminine archetype lacks force, strength, and power. Not wanting to be girls, they don’t want to be tender, submissive, peace-loving as good women are. Women’s strong qualities have become despised because of their weakness. The obvious remedy is to create a feminine character with all the strength of Superman plus all the allure of a good and beautiful woman.” Originally, Diana fought the Nazis and other Axis powers after saving an American intelligence officer that crashed on her Amazonian island. Wonder Woman has superhuman strength, agility, and speed. She is quite adept at fighting in hand-to-hand combat and military tactics. Her most famous onscreen portrayal is the television series starring Lynda Carter that aired from 1975 to 1979. In the series, Carter looked like the perfect embodiment of a strong and saucy brunette. Wonder Woman enlists in the United States Navy under the name “Diana Prince,” as a First Class Petty Officer. While Carter looks strong and powerful as her natural self, her human alter-ego looks much softer – even in her Naval uniform (pictured, above right). Diana’s round-rimmed glasses give her a much less-threatening appearance (even geeky in some shots), but when she’s in costume, there’s no messing with this woman! As Diana, she wears many soft-looking fashion items, such as the pink frock featured on today’s “Look-of-the-Day.” When out of either uniform, Diana wears her go-to spectacles, floral prints, vests and other trendy 70s items, in a conservative sense… Hell! She’s even wearing stockings and a kimono in her one-piece bathing suit! But when Diana is in Wonder Woman gear, she’s an entirely different person. She has an extremely patriotic red, white and blue strapless leotard to show off her beautiful Amazonian physique. Like any well-equipped soldier (or sailor, in this case), every accessory of Wonder Woman’s outfit can be used for other purposes: her tiara acts as a projectile, her gold cuffs with red stars are indestructible, and her Lasso of Truth forces people to be honest when tangled in it. And her knee-high red and white boots? Well those are just for looking good! (Although, she’s probably be wearing something similar to this “Wednesday’s Shoe” in the age of the stiletto…) We don’t particularly like the look of the new Wonder Woman pilot that’s yet to be picked up with Adrianne Palicki (her outfit just looks too cheap, and she doesn’t look comfortable in the role), but we certainly loved Lynda Carter in the role! (Maybe because our editors were raised by another strong, dark brunette named Linda who also juggled everything going on in her world…) Well, Wonder Woman is everything our editors admire in a person and she manages to do it with great style!
Well, these would have made the perfect pumps for last weekend, but they’ll look cute for any weekend this summer! These red, white and blue peep-toe pumps are patriotic and nautical – perfect for this season! They can be purchased on one of our favorite sites, Baby Girl Boutique. They have a 4.5 inch heel and cost $59.00.
Princess Catherine was certainly theme-dressing for Canada in red and white for the royal couple’s visit to our northern neighbors this week. Here, William and Kate were seeing the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Quebec. Dressed in her famous Reiss dress from her official engagement photos, a Anya Hindmarch fan clutch, a fabulous red hat by Sylvia Fletcher at Lock and Co. with matching stilettos, and a maple leaf brooch, Kate looked like one cute Canadian flag! Even though she was dressing to celebrate a different former British colony, she fit right in with our 4th of July fashion theme this weekend – red, white and blue! (Saturday was going to be red and white, Sunday blue and Monday all three American colors, but we just realized – Kate’s widely known engagement ring from Princess Diana, who would have turned 50 yesterday had she lived, is quite blue!) God Bless the USA! (And Canada! And the UK!)
