Warby Parker and Into The Gloss set out to create the perfect aviators. We think they succeeded.
Casual, polished, or sexy—no matter your date-night style, we have 11 outfits for you to try this summer. So skip the part where you stand in front of your closet, slowly sifting through your clothes, trying to figure out what to wear, and scroll through these amazing looks, instead.
Balenciaga Cady Cape-Top ($1075)
Jamie Chung arrived at our Styled By shoot wearing the perfect summer outfit: an H&M straw boater hat paired with a Madewell sleeveless chambray shirt tucked into a black pleated midi skirt from Aritzia. It was flirty and accessible, precisely how the actress—check her out in Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, starring Jessica Alba and in theaters August 22nd—describes her personal style. “Someone once categorized me as the downtown girl, and I like that because I am not just about the expensive labels,” Chung says. We like it too, and her effortless high-low mix is just one of the many reasons we’re avid followers of her blog What The Chung?, a picturesque photo diary of the Los Angeles native’s thoughtfully curated outfits and exotic travels—a.k.a. eye candy for the fashion obsessed.
Here's one very good reason Kendall Jenner is well on her way to becoming the next It-model: she's actually really, really tall. She and sister Kim Kardashian—both decked out in Balmain—attended the Vogue Foundation Gala and stopped on the way in to pose for some photos. While normally the two look so similar they could practically be twins, the resulting images highlight one very big difference between them: their heights.
If there’s one singular accessory fashion bloggers rarely leave the house without, it’s their favorite pair of sunglasses. So when we spotted several of the most prominent bloggers out there wearing new eyewear brand Seneca, we did a bit of digging—and it turns out, they really are as cool as Aimee Song (Song of Style), Vanessa Hong (The Haute Pursuit), and Martha Graeff (Around In Style) seem to think.
1. You may recall that à la Gwyneth Paltrow, Blake Lively is launching her own lifestyle website. Well, it's officially set to launch July 23. [Page Six]
For a special Pre-Fall 2014 styling session, New York brand Tibi cast blogger Aimee Song of Song of Style to model their ultra-feminine collection. She pulls off the girly, pretty line very well—shot on the streets of NYC in the mostly pastel, white, and neutral tones, Song put the outfits together herself and proves she can style looks with the best of them.
We are huge fans of the Birkenstocks trend, but even we will admit that the comfortable slide-on shoes are not for everyone. If you have found yourself questioning the revival of the ugly-cute sandal, but still longing for a comfortable shoe of your own, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve gathered our favorite slide-on sandals that are fashionable, amazingly easy to wear, and appealing to a wide range of stylish sensibilities.
Itching to wear your favorite cocktail dress, but have nothing to wear it to? Not for long! Skip the party-searching, and style it with laidback accessories for a dynamic daytime look. Try a straw boater hat, tote bag, and ankle strap flats. Oh, and don't forget the sunnies!
Spillage, back straps that creep north, unruly underwire—these are all signs that you’re wearing the wrong bra size. We had a quick chat with lingerie expert Sarah Shotton, the Creative Director of Agent Provocateur and L’Agent by Agent Provocateur, to fill us in on best breast management, and the bras that will truly take your girls to new heights.
The perfect pair of retro jeans is like the holy grail of vintage shopping. They’re talked about, even obsessed over, but seem almost mythically hard to find. Do you really want to search through a thousand pairs of weirdly unflattering vintage men’s jeans at the flea market? We didn’t think so, which is why we’re sharing our favorite online spots to score a killer pair of Levi’s, Jordaches, or Wranglers.
When it comes to baring your legs in shorts, the type of shoe you wear is of importance. Too high of heels, and you risk coming across risqué, too short and your legs enter stubby territory—the horror! Because of this, we assembled a guide on the best shoes to wear with summer’s key shorts styles (think: high-wasted, denim, and beyond). Scroll through for our roundup, and enjoy a little shopping along the way!
From playful poses to flirty faces, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley loves to take an ultra stylish pool/beachside selfie. In addition to always looking radiant, we also couldn’t help but notice the model also invariably showcases a slew of summertime essentials, think: statement sunglasses, breezy hats, and standout bikinis. Inspired, we decided to round up some of Huntington-Whiteley’s best Instagram shots and make them shoppable. Scroll through to enjoy her day-in-the-sun style!
According to the reviews, these shredded shorts make your gams look a million miles long.

As we’ve discussed, the Fall 2014 iteration of Couture Week is underway in Paris as we speak. The world’s top fashion houses—everyone from Dior to Versace to Giambattista Valli—are showing the best of what they have to offer. This often means sending creations down the runway that, on the surface, might seem to be a totally out-of-this-world fantasy. After all, what good is a one-of-a-kind silk-organza gown embellished with 350,000 Swarovski crystals to girls who need real clothes to wear from day to day?

goop mag #16
I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter. I have long had Dr. Emoto's coffee table book on how negativity changes the structure of water, how the molecules behave differently depending on the words or music being expressed around it. Below, Dr. Sadeghi explores further. Also we went to NYC last week and crushed a number of spots that deserve to make an update (and some that don't). Plus some other bits, remixes, and the like.
The goop Cookbook Club
This was not my idea. The cookbook club. Which is probably why it’s so good. While I have always liked the idea of a book club (sorta) I am just not that type of gal. Until one of my gorgeous girls suggested we do a different book club of sorts. A cookbook club! Now, as someone who gets in bed and reads cookbooks cover to cover as if they were novels, this idea was scintillating. We set off to find the ideal book to kick it off using the same criteria we would if we were choosing a novel, something challenging, beautiful, and with the possibility of becoming a classic. We landed on Roberta's Cookbook. And we smoked our own fish, dammit. Please cook with us and tell us what you learned, how you modified, and what the next instructional cooking club tome should be (@goop). Happy cooking.
Hong Kong Update
We went to Hong Kong and hit the ground hard to bring back the intel. We might have come home with no unused currency and having eaten too much, but it was worth it. Speaking of eating, Jon Favreau is back with a heartwarming, personal, and terrific film about a chef called, well Chef. Don't leave us alone with this food p*rn... Other bits too.
Ending the Mommy Wars
A few weeks ago during an interview, I was asked why I have only worked on one film a year since having children. My answer was this: Film work takes one away from home and requires 12-14 hours a day, making it difficult to be the one to make the kids their lunch, drive them to school, and put them to bed. So I have found it easier on my family life to make a film the exception, and my 9-5 job the rule. This somehow was taken to mean I had said a 9-5 job is easier, and a lot of heat was thrown my way, especially by other working mothers who somehow used my out-of-context quote as an opportunity to express feelings (perhaps projected) on the subject. As the mommy wars rage on, I am constantly perplexed and amazed by how little slack we cut each other as women. We see disapproval in the eyes of other mothers when we say how long we breastfed (Too long? Not long enough?), or whether we have decided to go back to work versus stay home. Is it not hard enough to attempt to raise children thoughtfully, while contributing something, or bringing home some (or more) of the bacon? Why do we feel so entitled to opine, often so negatively, on the choices of other women? Perhaps because there is so much pressure to do it all, and do it all well all at the same time (impossible). Below is a somewhat radical piece by Brigid Schulte, which has provoked many a discussion here in our HQ, and even a tear or two.
To every single mother out there, have a wonderful Mother’s Day.
The Annual goop Closet Sale
DonorsChoose is an organization started by Charles Best, a former Bronx public school teacher who saw an overwhelming need in his classroom for the most basic necessities—and found himself repeatedly dipping into his own pocket to buy supplies and fund field trips. And his fellow teachers were doing the same. The proceeds from this week's closet sale will go towards funding the direct requests of teachers in the most high-need schools for their classrooms.
