Happy Summer, folks!
In spite of the blogging hiatus (trying to tan and squeeze in some beach days in the midst of NYC work life) I’m always happy to come across new people, new content, new art. Enter Hollywood’s “It Girl” Elizabeth Olsen — the name behind the Elizabeth and James brand and of course, the sister of none other than mega style icons/blogger crushes MK and Ashley Olsen.

Elizabeth, despite being the sister ‘behind the scenes’ (relatively speaking) is a style icon and rising talent in her own right. She has had breakout roles in Godzilla, Martha Marcy May Marlene, and her most recent film which is still in production, The Avengers: Age of Ultron in which she will star as The Scarlet Witch. Definitely a teenage action star in the rising. Being related to some of fashion’s darlings doesn’t hurt either. Below is a fashion shoot video for Flaunt Magazine where she casually stars in ultra-contemporary designer wear in Brooklyn (my new favorite borough). Take a look, revel, and yes. Be Jealous.

Bad Romance (with Clothes)

I believe Lady Gaga has been referenced way too often these days, but

Too bad I don’t look this good with a black coat and glasses.

Gosh, Mary Kate looks amazing here…

On a side note:

my suitemates… or rather my whole floor seems to be jamming

to Christmas Music, ha! Can’t wait ’til finals are over!

Olsen effect: Influence

I stopped by Barnes and Noble today hoping to flip through “Influence” and ended up walking out with it ten minutes later. I haven’t read all of it yet, but after scanning through the first couple pages in B&N I knew I had to have it and soon shelled out the $35 for it (the price is seriously not bad at all, its a huge hardcover book with great quality pictures, totally worth it, for those of you who were still hesistant to get it).

It’s got lots of great interviews with everyone from Karl Lagerfield to Christian Louboutin to Terry Richardson. It’s been a fantastic read so far. One of my favorite parts aside from the interviews are the pictures of the Olsens when they were younger (: I loved their Full House days.

I took pictures of random pages for you guys (it’s under the read more); go get it! You won’t regret it at all. Oh, and Olsen’s Anonymous also has some great sneak peaks in case you still weren’t convinced! (:
