When we were asked to participate in the Styld.By campaign for the GAP in Rue Magazine, not only were we totally honored, but we thought this would be a great way to introduce ourselves to you guys one at a time! We’re always working behind the scenes here at TBD to create new beauty tutorials, but we never really pop out to say hello. I’m Kristin Ess and I do the hair + nail tutorials.
I started doing hair at 15 and have never looked back. In the hair industry, as some of you probably know, wearing all black is essential because we’re SO GOOD at ruining our clothes with hair color. When I’m not working in my salon, I have way more room to play with color and I really enjoy that time. For the GAP Styld.By campaign, they asked us to mix something of our own with something from the GAP. I thought that was pretty cool because full outfits rarely come from one store. I brought a long pleated yellow skirt with me and immediately gravitated toward a grass green striped GAP tank and colorful accessories. Stylist Jen Pinkston then rolled up the sleeves on this super soft GAP denim button down, pinned a red rosette on it and I was in heaven. This is now one of the most comfortable + colorful outfits I own.
The Mag: Working on this with the uber-stylish Rue Magazine was amazing because we were really collaborating with friends. That’s truly what the blogging and web world is all about, isn’t it? One of my closest friends Angela Kohler, took all of the photos. She’s been working with us at TBD since day one and I’ve even forced her to be in one of my braid tutorials! I always say- everyone should know how great it feels to have Angela take their photo. Another one of my closest and mostest, Bri, designed the layout in this issue of Rue and every issue before that. She’s just plain brilliant. Rue is an incredible online magazine packed to the sparkling brim with inspiration. Check it out and you’ll be hooked!
The neon trend kicked off when every editor under the sun was carrying their Cambridge Satchel Company electric messenger bag (you all know the one!). Now the trend has moved into hair accessories, nail polish, socks, shoes, you name it! As such, we have put together a must-have list of neon items that are all under $75. Why under $75? I believe that one should always splurge on classic pieces and go cheaper on trends (like neon, navajo, etc.). That being said, here are my picks:
Bottoms: Rag and Bone is making the hottest neon jeans out there (hands down) but I have to say TOPSHOP is coming in a close second and they are under $75! Also on the radar and currently in my closet are the Sparkle & Fade neon minis at Urban, they are amazingly flattering and perfect for summer!
Accessories: I absolutely love this Neon Box Chain Necklace from Forever 21 only $10 and these hot pink neon socks from Topshop would look adorable paired with a summer wedge! I love the combination of the clear crystals and the bright neon ribbon in this piece and one of my fav online jewelry shop’s, Bauble Bar, has some amazing pieces including these adorable neon studs! I am also a big fan of the neon bra trend (of course paired with a loose tank!). Lastly, a neon belt is a must have for the summer since it can add pop to any and all outfits.
Voila! You are all set! Nab a few of these neon items and you are sure to be on trend for the summer season!
