Blogger Inspiration Board: Blake Lively’s Savages Look, Girls of A Certain Age, Anne Hathaway As Catwoman and Kate Moss’ Style

Here’s what I’ll be reading and re-reading over the weekend…and you should join me.

I saw Oliver Stone’s new movie, Savages, last week. Although I love Oliver Stone, the stars of this particular movie were the man candy of Taylor Kitsch and Aaron Johnson (holy crushed crackers in a clutch, they’re gorgeous) and Blake Lively’s breathtaking good looks and flowing mane.  I have a small obsession with her and her hair, it’s true. My girl, Amber Katz of Beauty Blogging Junkie breaks down how to get Ophelia’s California cool look and it’s a great post. Read it. Like, now.

My new blog obsession? Girls of A Certain Age, the new blog by former Lucky editor-in-chief Kim France. Because all of us Gen X dames can totally get where Kim is coming from, her writing is just as snappy and engaging as ever, and she’s got impeccable taste. Read, well, everything on it.

Um, Kate Moss is starring in George Michael’s new video. July 17th, please do not disturb me because I’ll most likely be watching it all day on repeat until my eyes stop working.
