Break Time: Alligators, Images & Zombies

My caffeinated water is really kicking in this afternoon—sidebar, where has this stuff been all my life?—and I am buzzing with energy for the weekend. These cool links are sure to get you hyped up as well. Enjoy!

Did you know there is an actual place you can go and learn alligator wrestling? And I wasted my time in liberal arts.

Everyone has that one relative with pounds of old National Geographic magazines sitting in the attic. With this cool Tumblr, you can see all the amazing photography, without the hefty baggage.

The original Zombie Boy video blew my mind, and now he’s back in another can’t-look-away feature. This time it’s an iPhone app that lets you isolate his unique tattoos to learn each one’s story. You can also Zombie Boy-ify yourself, which is awesome.

Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes! The Story Behind One Girl’s Evolving Locks

It seems that Editorial Stylist Anna Brugge changes her hair with her outfits, dyeing her dark locks to blond or blue or ombré, and then cropping them to a cute pixie cut. Here, she offers a little insight to the method behind her hair madness.

Let me start by being honest: when it comes to my hair, I get bored pretty easily. Living in New York and looking at blogs, I’m constantly seeing the coolest hairstyles and colors. I've always had dark hair, which made it impossible to try hair chalk or a semi-permanent color. So one day, I decided to strip my hair. From there, the choices and possibilities were endless, and I found myself wanting to try them all!

Changing my hair so frequently has been so much fun. It's a constant art project and has definitely brought out different aspects of my personality. For example, I now understand that blonds do have more fun!

But challenges come with the fun. Upkeep is tough, and frequent dyeing is super hard on your locks. That’s what prompted me to adopt my current pixie cut. Although I did get the itch again and am already back to blond from my natural dark brown. And then there’s the question of what to wear. What goes with pink hair? With green? I’ve learned to keep the wardrobe simple and monochromatic when the hair is crazy.

Basically, I love how fun it is to experiment with different styles and colors. I never totally know how it’s going to turn out, which is the exciting part!

Ask Shopbop: How to Wear A Sheer Blouse


Photo Caption: Haute Hippie pullover, R13 jeans, 3.1 Phillip Lim Bag, Aquazzura sandals. Styled by Dokia.

Sheer continues to be a trend for fall, and from full-on see-through to subtle cutout panels, there are a few things to keep in mind when trying this look.

Sheer blouses require fashion bras or creative underpinnings. Go for a simple triangle bra if you're small chested, or opt for something like a bandeau or cami if you possess a more ample bust. For daytime, shelve the lacy, racy lingerie.

Try styling your blouse buttoned all the way to balance out the risqué factor. Or, add a tailored jacket or sleek cover-up to up the sophistication. Consider more modestly cut bottoms—stay away from short shorts and miniskirts. Leather track pants, high- waisted skinnies, boyfriend jeans, and structured maxis are all great options.

Seen @ Shopbop: Ankle Jeans

For the vertically challenged, finding a pair of jeans that hits just right at the ankle—sans tailoring—is like winning the fashion lottery. I recently learned that Stylist Dokia has a trick to increase the odds. At just under 5 feet, she also had trouble finding the perfect length until she realized something. Jeans that looked cropped on our models fit her like a full-length pair. The style she’s wearing here has an inseam of just 26 inches, fitting her petite frame with ankle-grazing perfection. Problem solved!
