Here at Glam Damn It, we have been thinking a lot about our New Year's Resolutions. The first month of the year is nearly over and unfortunately, a lot of us have already thrown in the towel on some of our more lofty goals. But sticking to a healthy lifestyle is something that has proven to be rewarding, and while it can be tough to find the time to work on your fitness, the payoff is always worth it. With these cute new workout gear options from GapFit and Active by Old Navy you’ll look just as good as you feel, without breaking the bank.
In with the highs, out with the lows! You can kiss your low ride Levi's goodbye! From the runways to the blogs, and most recently the streets, the high-waisted pant is the new "it" item. It has always been a fashion rule for women to primarily wear dresses and skirts to events, however, celebs such as Rihanna and Leighton Meester think other wise. Ladies show off those curves and look chic while doing it. Women normally frown at the thought of wearing hip hugging pants, but once we show you a few of this season's stylish favorites, you'll be thinking other wise.
WGSN held their 2nd annual Global Fashion Awards honoring fashion elite from all over the world last night. The event was held at Gotham Hall in New York City and select attendees came in the masses for the black tie ceremony and dinner. The event was hosted by fashionisto and personality Robert Verdi and some of the notable attendees included Anna Sui, Peter Alexander, Charlotte Ronson, and Liam Gallagher. While the night was focused on who was winning what, one of the most exciting features of the night was who was wearing what. So let's get to what it was really all about --the fashion in the room! Of course everyone was dressed to the nines (as you can imagine), but here are a few major standouts that really made an impression.
I know, I know. It's rough out there. Paychecks are being cut, the cost of health care is skyrocketing, and competition for jobs is greater than ever before. There's no denying that it's financially tight out there, which has caused many of us to ask: why give?
Even the most philanthropic of us all been starting to ask ourselves that question, and with good reason. But giving to others can actually help boost both the economy and ourselves. Not to mention, it's never bad to give back.
So here's a list about why it's important to stay charitable, even in these rough times:
Cheap tacos. Free jeans. And a soda.
The lastest food truck launched by the Gap, appropriately named, "Pico de Gap", is a little bizarre, but note-worthy nonetheless. As a means to promote their 1969 denim collection, the Gap has teamed up with several big name celebrity chefs such as Ryan Scott and Marcel Vigneron (of Top Chef fame), Katie Lee (of Billy Joel fame), and Rick Gresh to create an outside-the-box dining-promotion hybrid.
Two signature recipe tacos (crafted by each respective chef) and a drink will cost you just $1.69. If you can show proof of a same-day Gap purchase, your food is free. Twenty dollar coupons off the denim collection will be given out with every order and some lucky winners will even score a free pair of jeans. Win. Win. Win.
