A Month With Stylelist Canada! (Part 2)

After working with someone for nearly a quarter of your life, throwing around concepts in a two-person think tank can get a bit redundant – after all, adapting a sense of what the other person is thinking comes with the territory of sharing one communal brain. That’s why I was so surprised when this batch of Stylelist Canada posts ended up teaching me that despite existing under the impression that I was 100% up-to-speed with the ins-and-outs of Bianca’s thought process, our #twinsie-ship could not save the fact that our ways of rationalization differ (ever so slightly).

So you can get a better sense of what I’m getting at, I’m going to relate revolutionary idea interpretations to walking through a misting station (potentially sponsored by Coca Cola) on a very hot summer day. Though you walk in feeling gross, apprehensive and sweaty, you walk out the other end 30 seconds later feeling like a completely changed person with a newfound understanding of life and a newfound appreciation for dampness. This “refreshment” – if you would be so inclined to call it so – opens your eyes to a world of (seemingly) obvious solutions that you probably wouldn’t be able to conclude without the help of your other half.

 

We pitch all of our Stylelist topics to our lovely editor lady, @sarahkelsey on a month-to-month basis (though said pitches are usually brainstormed remotely and then combined together make one //super// list of //fabulous// editorial content). One of my ideas this month was to dress up like fragrances – only I originally intended to merely emulate the ~feeling~ that the scents evoked. However, Bianca interpreted this idea a little bit differently – so instead of contemplating the deep and meaningful feelingszzzz behind each fragrance, we dressed up like the physical perfume bottles instead.

/Disclaimer/ By no means am I complaining; I’m fully acknowledging that it’s 100x better this way. /End Disclaimer/

Regardless how stupid they are, being able to constantly expand your ideas with the help of someone else is such a fulfilling process. The fragrances post below is one of our favourite things we’ve ever done, and although that’s soOoo sad to admit, we are strangely proud of our highly specialized ability to imitate good-smelling inanimate objects. Thank you and goodbye.

Excerpt: In the midst of a (potentially) sweltering hot summer, there’s nothing worse than feeling gross, sweaty and — to be as tactful as possible — less than floral-scented.

MOVIE INSPIRED FASHION: CHER HOROWITZ FROM CLUELESS (read »)


 

Excerpt: In the past year, we’ve seen more Clueless-inspired graphic T-shirts than we even knew was healthy to exist. From token quotes to strangely blended photo montages, the crowning of the 1995 flick as a T-shirt-worthy icon comes as a nostalgic reminder of the intense feelings we get when thinking about the sartorial film gem on our DVD shelf.

Excerpt: Though the latest flick to present itself on Sofia Coppola’s ever-growing CV originally caught our attention because of the stunning typography (and the stunning Emma Watson), we weren’t actually total strangers to the general happenings of the non-fictional book ‘The Bling Ring.’
