Happy Summer Vacation!! Holly and Nolan are hanging out this week, talking Summer Wardrobe smack.
Talking about what people are wearing. Talking about what we’re doing. Talking about where we’re going. And, uhm, this brought up a very sensitive subject with Nolan, because he’s got a lot of fashion beef. So, we ask:
Nolan has some major rants this week about Summer Wardrobe Do’s and Don’ts:
- Men don’t get tend to get pedicures; therefore, they don’t get to wear flip-flops.
- Summer does not mean you get to be a freaking slob. READ THE ROOM, People! Or, Read the Beach! The beaches in Maine are lovely and all (and the Bush family compound is there), but it’s not the Hamptons. And it certainly ain’t Martha’s Vineyard. So plan your outfits accordingly.
Our Stylists Extraordinaire help you plan and pack for your summer adventures: Flip-flops are for the beach (and for women), while sexy sandals – or preferably Valentino Rock Stud block heels – are perfect for dinners out.
Holly makes the point that, if it’s hanging out, you gotta throw it out. Shorts that are too short and boobs that are falling out are “No Bueno!” It’s important to invest in a well-fitting swimsuit. Pull that stuff in ladies! Try on a goddamn Miracle Suit, for the love of God! It’s life-changing…for reals. And no one paid us to say that.
And in other news, while we don’t like fast fashion, you don’t need to break the bank to be stylish. Nolan educates Holly on the latest Target designer collaborations. Holly starts Googling – right in the middle of the show – and falls in love with the Christopher John Rogers dresses. We do love a good Target collab moment!!! And talk about it extensively.
And don’t forget your summer style etiquette: Casual wedding settings do not mean ‘dress casual.’ Have some respect, please!! When in doubt – overdress. And Nolan reminds us of his formal point of view on this: You don’t wear white to a wedding, but you do wear black to a funeral. “To me, it’s the ultimate form of disrespect. It says I don’t care enough about you, because I don’t care enough about you to put my best foot forward. And that, to me, is unacceptable. I would rather be overdressed than underdressed.” Preach, Queen!!
Don’t miss Nolan’s PTSD Prada flip-flop story, (very dramatic), and how it relates to Sex in the City. If you need to know, go check out Season 6, Episode 9 when Carrie is ‘shoe shamed” for her extravagant lifestyle. If you know, you know.
You say you are ready for a summer vacation, but, are you really ‘ready’? Listen now for your best summer self ever!
