Break Time: The Beach, The Playground & The Movies

Labor Day Weekend is upon us and that means a last ditch effort to squeeze the most out of summer. In that spirit, here are a few articles about some favorite hot weather activities.

I love the beach. The sand, the sun—what more could you want? Well, apparently there’s a lot more than just warm water and seashells lurking at the waterfront.

Parks and playgrounds are the perfect area for letting loose and enjoying sunny days, but these areas take it to the next level. Check out Mental Floss’s collection of the 10 most unusual playgrounds. I think I’m headed to Tokyo.

Going to the movies is a cool escape from the sweltering summer heat. However, current filmmaking trends might send ticket prices sky-high. Rolling Stone investigated and things are not looking great.

Ask Shopbop: How to Buy a Midi Skirt


Look 1: Alice + Olivia skirt, R13 tee, McQ – Alexander McQueen scarf, Rag & Bone booties and hat, Paige Denim jacket. Top skirt: Tibi. Bottom skirt: A.L.C. Styled by Dokia.

When looking to buy a midi skirt, think about what shapes you feel comfortable in—full skirts, A-lines, or pencils. Then, consider your height and waist-to-hip ratio. Full skirts accentuate a small waist or create the illusion of one if you have a less curvy figure. I like to pair A-line shapes and pencil skirts with heels. This helps with proportions, elongating the legs and flattering the hips. In most cases, keep your top fitted. Midi skirts can easily overwhelm a gal's figure, and a full silhouette on the top half will throw off the flattering balance necessary to pull off this look.

My Style Philosophy: Anna

Our staffers are a chic bunch, each with their own unique spin on fashion. This month we chatted with Editorial Stylist Anna about her personal style philosophy.

Name: Anna
Position: Editorial Stylist

Go-to brand: That is such a difficult question! My personal style is constantly changing. One day I feel really girly, and the next, I want to dress like a rock star. Brands are kind of like boys—meaning that each season, I could fall for a new one. My current loves are Band of Outsiders, MSGM, Loeffler Randall, and Skaist Taylor.

How did you get into styling? My mom has a clothing store that I grew up in, so I think it began with helping customers put together outfits and dressing mannequins. In high school, an international magazine came to the store to pull clothes for their launch. I ended up styling some of the girls, and got to go to the shoot. After college, I worked in Free People's wholesale showroom. They are still kind of like home to me. When I interviewed for the stylist position, I had one hour to style five mannequins. I remember using the shoes that I was wearing to go with one of the looks and did the rest of the interview in my socks. I am sure there were a lot of girls more experienced than me, but I had such a powerful feeling that I belonged there and that this was what I was meant to do. The cosmos agreed, and I got the job!

What’s your style philosophy? Well, since I said my personal style is constantly changing, I say CHANGE! Don't be afraid to try new things. When I go shopping, I try to pick out one thing that is "not me." I've been surprised so many times. Besides that, wear what you love—wear what you feel great in. My closet is filled with black and white stripes, but you know what? I will always and forever love black and white stripes.

What one item in your closet could you not live without? This is a hard one too. But out of everything in my closet that has sentimental value, I could not live without my butterfly ring. It was given to me for my birthday a few years ago. My Dad made it for my Mom when they were about 18. He melted down their high school rings, and made this beautiful butterfly. I get compliments on it all the time, even without people knowing the beautiful story behind it. It is a constant reminder of love, and where I come from: a very artistic man and a woman with exquisite taste in jewelry.
