Ladies ladies ladies. This week has been an excellent one full of lots of internet trolling, so you get SIX links instead of five! You are the most welcome. I had to share all of them. Also, sorry for mentioning Man Repeller again this week. Leandra is just doing too much dope shit right now and we love her and her brain, so just deal with it.
This is an old article, yes, but the contents are still wonderful. Every single one of these all-girl art collectives is killing it, creating amazing art, supporting each other, being solid members of society. Make sure to follow along with all their stuff and we will see you at the next Girls Only NYC show.
This is not really like news per se and to many of you it won't even be ~new~, but we love Melody and her tumblr is made of all the dreamy stuff we wish we were capable of creating. She is an excellent curator and creator and her feed DEFINITELY warrants digging up your old tumblr login so you can follow along. I sure did.
This year, I'm trying to be better about preparing for the election and not just voting for whoever my parents and friends are choosing. I no longer want to rest on my laurels in the hopes that all the political news I'll ever need to know will miraculously surface on my facebook newsfeed via Upworthy. I want to feel educated when I go to the ballot to cast my vote in 2016, and I hope you will join me in gaining that knowledge! This site from the NY Times will give you a ton of relevant election info on candidates and their policies. It's not the end-all-be-all, but it is a great place to start.
HBS HAS SPAWNED AT LEAST 18 FASHION AND BEAUTY STARTUPS, NEARLY ALL LED BY WOMEN AND TARGETING WOMEN, AND WHICH HAVE RAISED AN ESTIMATED $600 MILLION IN AGGREGATE. Hear hear for Harvard supporting female entrepreneurs (finally) and to Marie Claire for covering a pretty cool business-related story. I love every single one of the companies mentioned in here, not just because they are women-led (although that's awesome), but because they all solve real problems and make life a little more fun while doing it.
Ugh. Leandra. WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO ME?! Two weeks ago, it was Outdoor Voices, and now it's Veda? I wanna hug you and squeeze you and just basically capture you and your brain. The coats in this collab are all fantastic and I can't wait to rock them with my Two Eggs gear. Smiling while typing is a side effect of clicking the link above. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Bandanas are having an Internet moment
Seriously, though. They are everywhere. They are talked about here, here, and here and a TON of other places. Even Hermes' *silk bandana* in on BACKORDER! I now want this particular bandana so badly it pains me. I seriously can't even close the tab, I'm fantasizing so hard about buying it; I think I'll keep it open until Shut Down. Is it worth $185? It's an investment piece, right? I could pass it down to my grandchildren!
*TUNE IN NEXT WEEK TO FIND OUT IF I BOUGHT THE BANDANA OR NAH!*
