RIGHT NOW | Totally Cracked
Cracked iPhone? Hot! Seriously.
So here’s an example of something super-rare… A moment when fashion and science agree on something. But here it is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Last week people were waiting in overnight lines at Apple stores to buy the new iPhone 6/6+ like tickets for the next Beyonce tour. On another side of town there’s a whole separate gang trying to upload selfies on iPhones with cracked screens. It was only a matter of time until broken iPhones caught on, right? Now it’s like a trend of its own like ripped denim and worn-in leather.
So, if your screen is cracked, pimp that phone. (We even found this tutorial.) If you’d rather not pick tiny shards of glass out of your fingers and ears, you can always buy a case for that perfectly shattered look.
Gotta love options.
THE WEEKEND | Are You Ready??
5 SOMEWHERE | A Classic Mai Tai
There’s nobody who loves the current craft cocktail craze more than we do around here. But sometimes it just gets way too serious. It’s a drink, after all, not a cure for cancer. And that’s where the Mai Tai comes in…
There’s nothing that knocks the too-serious shade off of craft cocktails better than this relic from the days of the Tiki bar craze. Plus, they’re just yummy.
So shake off the serious this weekend and shake up a pitcher of Mai Tais, listen to an Earth, Wind & Fire record and laugh out loud. You can thank us for its therapeutic benefit later. Cheers.
RIGHT NOW | Yellow
Limoncello, Mello Yello, citron, cadmium, citrus, lemon, daffodil… And on and on… It’s all about yellow as we move into fall. That should brighten things up.
LISTEN UP | Sam Smith X A$AP Rocky
It’s no secret that we love Sam Smith and his soulful vocals. And his frequent collaborations are always perfectly pitched. This time he joins up with A$AP Rocky on this remix of ‘I’m Not The Only One.’
RIGHT NOW | This Cinderella Moment
We are in love with Sophia Webster, London’s shoe sensation, right now. We can’t help it. It’s the sheer chutzpah, the boldness and the bravery to combine so many graphic and shapely elements in a single design that would just end up a mess in another designer’s hands. They work even though they shouldn’t. And they really work. Seriously… This babe’s got brass. Nothing basic here.
RIGHT NOW | Fringe Group
The Proenza Schouler boys sent this group of fringed goodness down the runway for SS2015 during NYFW last week. Now we can’t wait until spring gets here…
RIGHT NOW | What A Mess
OK, first, we love us some Vivienne Westwood around here at BFR Hq. She is the grand doyenne of punk couture and one of fashion’s greatest provocateurs. Period.
We also love it when the looks coming down the runway challenge our notions of beauty. We want them to make us see things in new ways. That’s called innovation. Period.
But come on, Dame Viv! What is really going on with these looks from your show at London Fashion Week??? For real… What??? We can only hope these smudged up, dirty, scribbled swipes never make it from runway to reality.
We’ve got to give it up to these models, though. They just worked it down that catwalk like their makeup was totally on point. Now that’s professionalism if we’ve ever seen it. Good for you, girls. Now you can go home wash your face and try to forget about this whole thing.
THE WEEKEND | It’s Here!
5 SOMEWHERE | Raspberry Tarragon Moonshine Smash
Moonshine sure isn’t the stuff of Deliverance movie jokes anymore. There are craft versions of the South’s reigning high proof potion everywhere. And this little concoction really ups the moonshine game. Just one last piece of advice: Skip the Mason jar glass to serve it up. Even people in the South think that’s just a little too Duck Dynasty. Otherwise designate a driver, pop in some power pop and cut up a little.
