As with its counterpart in skateboarding, BMX Vert also began the BMX action at X Games Austin 2016.

Fashion Recap: Grammy Awards 2014

Awards shows are a goldmine for celebrity fashion and trends that make a buzz. This year's Grammys had it all: lots of sparkles,dangerous necklines and classic men's suits.

Ellie Goulding's latest video for her single "Goodness Gracious" is electrifying and an 80s dream. Shot in L.A., Ellie takes to the streets and beach in full-on neon, sequins and LED kicks.

Fashion Analysis: Taylor Swift Parties with New Bestie Lorde

Taylor Swift celebrated her 24th birthday earlier this month with an Australian garden party--and new best friend Lorde in tow. Tay shared photos from her whimsical and classy party on her Instagram account but the media couldn't keep their eyes off Lorde's presence. As you might remember, Lorde was feuding with Tay's bestie Selena Gomez earlier this summer after she slammed Gomez's "Come and Get It" for not agreeing with her views on feminism. Selena responded that pop queen bee Lorde is not supporting other women. 7138

Paramore: Five Reasons Why We’re “Still Into You”

Formed in 2004, Paramore has been around gracing the world with their music for almost 10 years now. With four albums under their belt, all certified gold and platinum, this band has shown the world they have what it takes to be musicians and they aren't stopping anytime soon. Although this band has gone through new members, fans are still just as enchanted by their punk rock attitude today as they were when the band first started. 6946

Top 6: Ankle Booties

Boot season is in full swing. Bust out the Docs, the knee highs, the leather, the suede, and the favorites that have been around for years. When it comes to winter kicks, every girl's closet should contain a great pair of black boots for Monday through Friday, but when you want something fun and a bit unique for Saturday, great booties are the way to go. They pair well with both dresses and jeans, look great in bold colors and take up far less space which means you can own more (yay). I love every pair I have ever bought

90s Fashion: Should These Pieces Make a Comeback? (Part 2)

Last time we revisited 90s classics like crop tops, daisy print, Doc Martens, Spice Girls-inspired LBDs and chokers.  There was plenty more that encapsulated 90s fashion than the trademark plaid shirts and overalls of the early part of the decade.  The decade ended with a hodge-podge ranging from backwards red baseball caps courtesy of Fred Durst and Limp Bizkit to the frosted tips and all white outfits from the impending ubiquitous boy bands.  Now we take a look at the trends we couldn't escape during the decade that Michael Jordan dominated in basketball, Howard Stern brought "real talk" to the

90s Fashion: Should These Pieces Make a Comeback? (Part 1)

Every decade of fashion comes back around: 60s & 70s floppy hats, wide-legged jeans and flower head pieces; 80s bright colors and flashy kicks and we've seen the 90s wave coming for a while now. The Nirvana flannel and beanie look is expected, but what about these long lost items below? Would you try and relive the 90s through these pieces? 6017

What is up with Alexa Chung?

She’s got a new book out called "It", a Mulberry bag named after her, official awards for her style, collaborations with retailers, a makeup line, and is a co-anchor for Fuse News. But is Alexa Chung really our new It Girl? Is she our modern pinnacle of cool and the new subject of international emulation? If she is, I suppose you can count me out of the cool crowd. 6478

Top 6: Halloween Costumes That Keep on Giving

Tis the season for expression through fashion in its most exaggerated and creative way... Halloween costumes. My offenses include a repeat princess phase, many classic skeletons, zombies and pumpkins, and one year as an elaborate recreation of Mt.  Rushmore that almost got me thrown off a bus. I've since decided that the idea of a disposable outfit representing hours of work doesn't do it for me or my budget. 6282

Top Picks: 5 Great Coats for Fall

It is a good indication that Summer is in her death throes when I can no longer take the dog for his nighttime walk without bringing something cozy along. This of course means that the search for the perfect fall coat begins. San Francisco weather makes the classic light-weight puffy coat a  la Uniqlo or GAP ideal for unexpected weather and versatility, but I urge you to expand your wardrobe and invest in a piece that will carry you fashionably though the these colder months. Here are my picks for a season of warmth and style: 5895

Austin City Limits Food Guide

Great music, good times, and great food! We still have one more weekend to go at the Austin City Limits Music Festival. Austin is rapidly becoming one of the top food cities in America so be sure not to miss some of the best it has to offer. The restaurants in this growing town are amazing, but if you want some great food you don't have to go far. I have gathered some great food vendors that will be on premises 5829

Video Style: Kings of Leon- “Supersoaker”

King of Leon's "Supersoaker" video released last month is a pretty good visual tribute to Grease with an Instagram filter. Their album Mechanical Bull is out this week and while past "Video Style" posts have mainly focused on women's fashion, the boys who originally grouped together in Nashville brought a solid combo of white tees with rolled sleeves and leather moto jackets. Main man Caleb Followill sports a good denim-on-denim look with a  worn grey tee under a jean vest. Denim-on-denim work a lot better with different washes--a lighter denim vest is safe with darker wash jeans and a comfortable heather grey

What to Wear: Austin City Limits Music Festival

Heading to Austin City Limits for both or one of the festival weekends?  Even if you're indigenous to the area, the weather is never a surefire bet.  It could be hot and humid in the afternoon and suddenly you may find yourself in the midst of a thunderstorm.  Anyone remember the downpours at ACL 2012?  Either way, ACL is a time to take in the great music, make new friends, enjoy the amazing food and of course, look somewhat presentable all the while!  Regardless if you're into EDM, folk-rock or have an adult-contemporary side that will be filled to the

New York Fashion Week Review: Part 2

Last week, all eyes were on New York as designers presented collections that will set trends and influence wardrobes everywhere for the coming 2014 Spring season. Though I was entertained by the first half of the collections, I was really looking forward to the heavy hitters that were still to come. Luckily the designs that closed the week delivered the polarizing collections I was waiting for. Here are the highlights. 5393

PHOTOS: Station To Station- St. Paul

Since the beginning of September, a traveling art and music event called Station to Station has been traveling across the United States. The event was organized by artist Doug Aitken, in which an imagined train will travel to a total of nine stops, starting in New York and ending in the Bay Area. The ideology behind the event is to connect famous names and underground artists of food, music, literature, and film together at different train stations; and the train itself is considered a moving kinetic sculpture. 5375

PHOTOS: Highlights From Station To Station- NY, PA, CHI

The Station to Station public art project on rails kicked off in Brooklyn, NY earlier this month and recently stopped at the Twin Cities, Minnesota. The exhibit is slated to hit nine cities throughout the country as it makes its way through the country from New York City and completing its tour in San Francisco at the end of September. Various musical performers ranging from Beck and Thurston Moore to Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Cat Power and Savages were signed up take part in the tour, with some during many dates. Alongside the music, artwork from leading

Video Style: Lana Del Rey- “Young and Beautiful”

I'll be honest, I'm not ashamed to do a dramatic Lana Del Rey impression every now and then. Her song "Young and Beautiful" released this past April, and constantly remixed by the likes of Kaskade, was composed for the film adaptation of "The Great Gatsby." The video released a month later showcasing Lana in a combination of Old Hollywood glam and a bit of street wear--as she usually does on a day-to-day basis with Converse and a bold lip. 5137

Fashion Top 5: Female Musicians

Musicians are some of the boldest cats out there when it comes to fashion. They have the resources, the crowd and the confidence to take risks and truly flaunt their personal style. Since it's their job to be creative, some shocking choices usually come with the territory, but every once in a while we get an icon who show us what it's like to be truly memorable. There are countless women who deserve to be named, but here are just a few who have made lasting impressions for their own special reasons. 5166

Review: New York Fashion Week Spring 2014

I very rarely agree with the opinions of major editors, knowledgeable critics and fashion experts concerning the collections shown during New York Fashion Week. When it comes to major designers, I gravitate towards unconventional beauty, but beauty all the same, and drowning me in a sea of ill-fitting jackets, crop tops and bulky dresses doesn't really get my motor running. 5204

How Do We Feel About: White after Labor Day

Long before Labor Day, which just snuck up on us this past week, white has been an on-point trend all summer. It gives a crisp and clean look making it still white-hot after the holiday. Texture plays a big part in keeping the all-white look more than just white jeans and a t-shirt. Mesh inserts, lace detail, structured pieces all give shape when dipping in the same color can, as can mixing different tones of white. 5141

Video Style: HAIM- “The Wire”

My new favorite trio of sisters Este, Danielle and Alana make up HAIM who just released the new video for their jam, "The Wire" earlier this month. LA-born and raised, the girls have also put out singles "Don't Save Me" and "Falling" which have often been compared to Fleetwood Mac. While they're not breaking hearts in the video, all three are rocking long, mermaid wave hair giving them the ultimate bedhead look. They've also perfected the motorcycle jackets paired over a band tee, collared button up or with a mini--this floral skater skirt is perfect. They already are three gorgeous ladies and tend to keep

End of Summer: Shoe Sales

A die-hard shopper once told me that if you're not buying your winter coat in July and your summer sandals in August then you're probably wasting money on your wardrobe. Fashionistas everywhere might agree that the sale season a great time to squirrel away things for next year at a lower price, and with Labor Day coming up, it's time to start keeping an eye out. You can start here with some summer shoe sale picks that I love. 4957

How To: Hide a Bad Hair Day

The bad news: You just woke up with a hangover, you have twenty minutes to be somewhere and your hair looks worse than you feel. The good news: Hiding a bad hair day has never been so easy, or so easily chic. You have many fashionable options at your disposal, not the least of which is the classic hat. We all have these days, and even though they aren't pretty, they don't have to be disasters. Read on for some tips on how to pull it off and how to cover it up. 4984

Video Style: CHVRCHES-“The Mother We Share”

CHVRCHES is on fire right now and their debut album, "The Bones of What You Believe" comes out September 23 in the U.S. The Scottish electropop group released its music video for "The Mother We Share" last week although the single was released last year. Lauren Mayberry shines front and center in between Iain Cook and Martin Doherty in the video as it follows along a somber looking women wandering the city in search for someone. Mayberry's voice is very delicate but she plays up a heavy moto jacket over a black tee. Nasty Gal's "Moto Zip Crop" jacket is a

Photo Highlights From Summer XGames 2013: Moto X

Taka Higashino turned in a stellar performance during the Moto X Freestyle event during the Summer XGames in Los Angeles and won gold. Adam Jones was just as impressive but fell a bit short to take silver and Nate Adams(who won gold for Speed & Style) won bronze. Ronnie Renner took the gold for the always-entertaining Step-up competition. Check out the photo highlights! 4823

Photo Highlights From Summer XGames 2013:BMX Street

During the last Summer XGames in Los Angeles, CA, expectations were high for another gold win by BMX star, Garrett Reynolds. Reynolds gave a solid performance for silver having been outdone by Chad Kerley, who took gold. Jeremiah Smith captured the bronze during the event. Check out the photo highlights! 4817

How Do We Feel About: Camo

I associate camouflage with a couple of things, such as the Destiny Child's "Survivor" music video or this one outfit in particular that I wore to my seventh grade dance. But now, to be honest, I'm kind of digging a subtle, faded camo print. 4587

What to Wear to Outside Lands

Outside Lands is almost here, and along with thousands of music hungry fans comes that schizophrenic weather that San Franciscans know and love. Thankfully, this is not our first rodeo, and we have some examples from years and festivals past to learn from. For this year, we look to Kate Moss, Vanessa Hudgens, the men of Phoenix and a couple others for some outfits to inspire you and tips to help you have the best and most stylish festival experience yet. 4744

How To: Camping Style

I'll be the first to admit that I love camping. Almost everyone can appreciate the smell of a campfire and the refreshing feeling of being under the stars and away from the city. But here's the catch...I don't love LOOKING like I'm camping. If you are soon to embark on an outdoor adventure, here are a few tips for looking like a natural. CLOTHES: Embrace the flannel. It looks cute and appropriate, doesn't show dirt, and can be worn alone or with other layers on chilly nights. Speaking of layering... layer away! The more prints and colors you can fit into an outfit,

Dressing for Work: Mix & Match

Whether you are starting out at your first full-time job or interning for the summer, you still want to make an impression without losing your personal flair. And entering the workplace, your budget won't expand the way you would like your wardrobe to.Mixing & matching is one of the best ways to take the pieces you already have in your closet and make it look like you have something new to wear every day. I've found investing in a pair of dark jeans, a lightweight blazer, a striped/patterned dress and a nicer blouse will take your workplace fashion a long way.

How to: Men’s Fashion

We walk through this life with a few basic requirements placed upon us: Sleep, eat, work towards something (even if it's just towards your next meal), and put clothes on. I really do believe that we all have a duty to put something attractive or at least creative on our backs at least 50% of the time. Fashion is one of those amazingly undervalued expressions of free speech, and you don't have to be wearing any current trends or expensive labels to be making a statement. 4386

Video Style: Ellie Goulding- “Burn”

I could write something new about Ellie Goulding every time she uploads to her Instagram account. The pint-sized Brit released the video last week for her newest single, "Burn" which will be included on the re-release of her sophomore album, Halcyon Days. 4231

What is up with Zooey Deschanel?

Some celebrities are destined to be loved. Have you ever met anyone that didn't like Meryl Streep? She could have retired after Sophie's Choice. Morgan Freeman? His reputation isn't even tarnished by the mess that was Dolphin Tale. Jon Hamm? Well, for obvious reasons. But then you have the divisive celebrities: Anne Hathaway, John Mayer, Gwenyth Paltrow, James Franco, Kristen Stewart, and Miley Cyrus who will divide a room like the ancient question of the guitarist or the drummer? (drive or walk, truth or dare, boxers or briefs, good news first or bad news first, chocolate or vanilla, cats or dogs,

Pretty Little Liars Fashion Profile

If you count yourself among the Pretty Little Liars fans, then you know that half the love for the show is about the clothes. Between the four main girls we have all bases covered; from Hanna’s love of glam to Emily’s down-to-earth comfort, the wardrobe on set must be a fashion chamleon’s dream.
