Awards season starts tonight and everyone is obsessed with Meryl Streep, so of course I had to see The Post. I live for watching movies about the media industry! Over the break, I finally saw State of Play. I also loved similar movies based on real stories, especially Obit (The New York Times) and Spotlight (The Boston Globe). In fact, one of my top professional highlights of 2017 was writing a tweet that was noticed by Kim Kardashian and then featured on the Boston Globe’s website.
The Post is about how Meryl Streep’s character Kay Graham, the first female newspaper publisher in America, handled the decision making process when her team at The Washington Post had the opportunity to publish the Pentagon Papers.
These papers were key because as one character points out, the U.S. government “knew we couldn’t win and still sent boys to die.” The movie explains how the classified documents went public while presenting the workplace drama that transpired at The Washington Post, as well as The New York Times and The White House.
If you’re passionate about politics and journalism, then this is a movie to strongly consider seeing.
I’ve felt more opinionated about fashion trends lately. I love statement sleeves – short and long, but you’ll never catch me in a tee with a cold shoulder. I believe that one day thousands of women will wake up and wonder why they spent so much $$$ on clothes with holes. Too many women look alike these days – what ever happened to expressing your individuality through personal style? As you can imagine, I’m not a fan of distressed jeans either.
When I received a cryptic event invitation to attend a special launch party for an undisclosed brand, I was intrigued. It seemed like a unique opportunity and I trusted the PR firm, so I signed up!
After attending the White Cashmere fashion show, I was eager to learn more about Canadian fashion and meet the brains behind it. When Women of Influence announced they were ending their speaker series for the year with Kimberly Newport-Mimran, the President & Head Designer of Pink Tartan, I quickly bought a ticket. Prior to the event, I saw her on a poster at the eyeglasses store Josephson’s in Forest Hill, which solidified her position as a national style icon.
When I focus on seeing speakers from the fashion and media industries, the events tend to be worthwhile and this one was no exception. Charles the Butler was not there, but Susie Sheffman was!
When a Kardashian or Jenner wears something, everyone notices. Myself included.
So after watching an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians this summer where Kourtney layered a silk tank over a white t-shirt, I decided to try something similar with my own wardrobe. The plaid yellow and navy tank (pictured below) has been in my room unworn for too long and now that’s about to change.
I’ve always been a fan of layering and now that following Kourtney’s lead will let me wear something I’ve always liked yet didn’t fit properly, I’m into this new trend. Upon further research, I realized that Kourtney’s been spotted doing this more than once and Kylie is a fan too, as well as North. They’ve actually layered slip dresses over white tees and tanks.
This is a simple trick that’s easy to execute with a low budget, so I’m all in!
