Weekly JUice

Week of 2/15/16

1. I’m old.

This was apparently so that old people could understand this song, but like I needed it just as much as the next geezer. Pretty hilar that “Instagram” translates to posting pictures for strangers to like. I mean, that’s basically what it is, but saying it like that makes it sound a whole lot more like an AIM chatroom for sexual predators. Either way, let’s all promise to go HAM sammich this weekend.

2. Happy Endings Movie.

suh cyuht

So, a wealthy investor offered to fund a Happy Endings movie and David Caspe didn’t say yes? Well that’s just PREPOSTEROUS. If you’re not going to do a movie, at least hop on that Netflix Nostalgia and choo-choo your way to another season full of Alex burying her face in a full rack of ribs and Penny giving me 100 new annoying abbrevs to use ad nauseam.

3. Pacey Wins.

It’s how many years later and Dawson’s still a big loser with a capital L. James Corden put Joey Potter on the hotspot this week and asked the real hard-hitting questions…who was a better kisser, Pacey or Dawson. After squirming around, Ryan Reynolds stepped right in and gave us the most obvious answer ever. OF COURSE Pacey was a better kisser… I mean he slept with his teacher when he was like 16. He had PLENTY of practice. Dawson practiced on a mannequin.

4. Don’t Sleep on the Stapletons.

Chris Stapleton has been the country singer to watch this year as he’s sweeping awards and duetting with JT like nobody’s biz. This duet with his wife was just officially released (they cover it at their shows) and I can’t say I’ve ever been a fan of the song “You Are My Sunshine” but this version is rad. Good for “rocking on your front porch while sipping a whiskey” jam.

Click here to listen.

Also it took a lot for me to say that considering my blind rage toward the lyric “You are my sunshine” ever since the wall decor section in Teej was ‘sploding with variations of it for FAR TOO LONG. Sorry, I just got mad again while reliving the pain. HOW MANY DIFFERENT WAYS CAN YOU HIGHLIGHT SUNSHINE IN YELLOW ON A CANVAS? Ugh. Now I need to listen to the Stapletons soothing voices again to calm me down. Full disclosure-it’s entirely possible that I’m on a TJX Companies black list for the amount of time I spent in the store rearranging their signs for this perfect picture. WORTH IT.

5.  The Rachel is making a comeback.

This is technically not from this week but it’s still worth watching. Vanessa’s Rachel impression might’ve made the Salty before, but this was full in costume and with a touch of Friends racism, so it’s better. Even Pheebs thinks so. Also it’s more entertaining than the fake-out Friends reunion that they’re still trying to trick everyone with.

BONUS: Blake doing the damn thing during fashion week.

LC Runway Review

lcrunway

Obviously I know nothing about high fashion or NYFW, but you bet your bottom dollar that when my girl LC announced her first collection to debut during fashion week, I was ALL over it. Since I highly doubt anyone else live-streamed the show in support of the ‘Guna babe (or to preview what items to purchase) I decided to recap it so that we can rank each look from worst to best. For anyone who doesn’t know LC’s style, the show was chock full of pastels, florals and braids. Sometimes it was whimsical and adorbises, and other times it was too much but overall I give her two thumbs up and all of the money in my savings account. Let’s see what she made!

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.47 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.58 PM

This is so granny and shapeless, I just can’t. It is literally an old woman’s nightgown.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.55 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.04 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.09 PM

The shiny floral print on this crop coord look was far too 90’s for me and then adding in the oversized pink shades threw it over the edge.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.29 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.39 PM

Almost exactly the same look but in a strapless gown. It’s prom gone bad.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.19 PM

I can’t really explain why, but this reminded me of Brigitte from Passport to Paris. Maybe it’s the matching pastel coat/purse.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.53 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.02 PM

Embroidered velvet shorts…three words that should never be put together.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.19.35 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.19.48 PM

Flower power jumpsuit is not for me.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.10 PM

Kind of a weird combo..teacher on top, disco on the bottom?

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.13 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.18 PM

Ah, the shimmery milkmaid. A must have for all those fall farm raves.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.26.01 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.26.05 PM

Hate the coat, but the dress could be ok without dusty pink fuzzies all up on it.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.22.34 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.22.44 PM

All this girl is missing is a stack of books and a banana seat bike with a bell on it.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.35 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.51 PM

I would have ranked this higher on the list if it wasn’t velvet, which gives me the itchies just looking at it.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.47 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.51 PM

I’m just not quite sure what’s going on with this. I think this is a top and leggings?

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.07 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.12 PM

Leaning toward the granny side of town–not bad just not doing anything special.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.22.53 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.00 PM

Taking rompers into fall with a fur vest. I can dig it.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.08 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.23.17 PM

Not in love with the shimmery fringe but the outfit pulls together via pants and shoes.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.01 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.05 PM

LC laughs in the face of rules about white after labor day with her onslaught of whoutfits coming up.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.06 PM

Kind of odd see through white dress.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.15 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.23 PM

Middle fingers to the end of summer.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.31 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.17.36 PM

I would love this if the dress cut off at the knee and didn’t have a sheer bottom.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.17 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.26 PM

The back kind of ruined this for me.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.44 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.53 PM

Cool for the summer. (PS LC…not all of us live in sunny Cali–it’s about to be winter for 6 months here FYIzzle)

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.00 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.06 PM

I feel like this could be a bridesmaid dress.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.22.19 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.22.28 PM

Front is fab, tail action in the back freaks me out a touch.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.25 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.30 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.34 PM

Because everything that was once trendy comes back, apparently I should’ve kept my duster from middle school.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.24.44 PM

Supes prettzzzz but probably not a dress for tall people like me unless everyone wants a show every time I move.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.59 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.19.06 PM

This is cool AF but I would never wear it. I don’t think a trip to the grocery store would deem a lace crop and hard flares.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.19.12 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.19.20 PM

A fan of both the color and the ombre.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.34 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.40 PM

Hearts for the fem lace jumpsuit but again not very practical.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.18 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.21.24 PM

The best whoutfit of the night.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.52 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.55 PM

This is badass princess right here. I’m going to wear tulle like I’m attending a grand ball but then BAM pair it with a crop top and motorcycle jacket. In YOUR FACE, FROZEN.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.19 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.23 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.30 PM

This outfit was CRUSHING until she spun around and I caught a glimpse of that baby backpack. Really? We’ll have to disregard because the look is very fashionable biz casj. Which is a relief because buying biz flare dress pants makes me want to strangle myself. They are flattering on NO ONE. End rant.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.34 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.20.40 PM

Perfect party dress!

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.19.30 PM

Thirty, flirty and thriving. JK this is not a look for a 30 year old but that caption was cuter than “I LOooooOOOVE THIS.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.44 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.25.50 PM

Does this look kind of like some fancy jammies? Yeah. Do I care? No. Top three look right hurr. Daytime slumber party.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.27 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.32 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.36 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.18.40 PM

This lace romper is perfection and I will need it on my body with a side braid, STAT.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.26.17 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.26.25 PM

Snagging the number 1 spot for her designs in this show is this beauteous gown. Queen LC and her fairytale rule the roost.

And as if it would ever be a competition of who looked the best…. the top spot of the night goes to the designer herself looking like an angel sent straight from Laguna Beach.

Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.27.09 PM Screen Shot 2015-09-09 at 7.27.46 PM

LC popped out for a shy hello and a giggle toward her hottie hubs who sat in the first chair and grinned for the entire show. It was adorbsies. And of course her HS BFF’s were there to show their support…

Moral of the story is she’s all grown up now! No more digging out candle wicks or shedding tears as a result of Kelly the ogre Cutrone yelling at her. I’m just so proud. ANYWHO, if you want to shop any of the looks, you can purchase here because LC wants the poors to look fabulous as well. (To be clear, I’m referring to myself as a poor and I’m 100% ok with that. The first step is acceptance.)

1. NYFW-DIS BLAKE’S SHIT. RESPECT THAT. BOW DOWN BITCHES. Seriously though is it New York Fashion Week or Blake Lively Week? Did she just have a baby or something? NBD but HBD.

Also Rihanna probably should’ve just turned around and went home in that bathmat top and strategically hanging off of her arms bedazzled jean jacket.

2. Taylor Swift releases music video for Style on Friday the 13th (duh). It was certainly not what I expected from Tay for this little number but watch below and then I’ll force my commentary on you.

Obviously Blank Space was a bananas video so to follow that is already tough stuff. This was an artsy approach to the one of many songs that were about her former lovah Harry. I guess I can respect the visuals and the tree trunk growing in her spine for the most part…Things that I really liked: the red lips when he looks in the rearview mirror although I don’t condone scaring someone when they’re driving at night. It’s been a known fear of mine to drive somewhere in the dark by myself, look in the rearview mirror and see someone’s face. So although it looked cool in the video it’s also terrifying. Anyway, I got sidetracked there–other things I liked: gratuitous abs and another stellar hot male lead, girl never disappoints in the man candy dept. Also when things got scandalous and there was a little sex tryst that resulted in lightning. I think she’s trying to tell us she’s got mad bedroom skillz. Lastly the white criss cross crop was killing it. Things I could do without: barefoot in the woods,all of the superimposed eyes coming in hot. Too many eyes, too little faces. Will they ever find each other?

3. Brett Eldredge throws an impromptu karaoke bar crawl in Nashville. Sex on a stick, Brett confirmed what I’ve believed for many years now, that I should probably live in Nashville, when he posted an instavideo telling people to meet him at Warner Music if they wanted to do some karaoke. He then filled a party bus and went bar hopping with a bunch of strangers singing karaoke. Some of the songs he sang included: No Diggity, Ignition, Bang Bang, The Joker by Steve Miller Band and obviously he did his best impression of himself when he noticed his own songs were on the karaoke machine as well. My obsession with Brett grew three sizes and I wasn’t even there to witness this. If I was there I ABSOLUTELY would’ve knocked it out of the park with Bye, Bye, Bye. Brett could be the JC to my JT any day.

4. Missy Elliott’s music video dancer still goes HAM on those moves. While rest of the world quickly forgot about Missy after the Super Bowl I obviously did not and went on a binge of her classics so when I stumbled upon this video I felt it was necessary to share, to keep the Missy love alive. Alyson Stoner was like an 8 year old dancer in every single one of Missy’s music videos and she was a little white girl with puffy bangs who was G AF. Example:

bangs crump

She was also in Cheaper by the Dozen, Step up (s), and Mike’s Super Short Show for all you Disney kids like me. Naturally as fading stars do, Alyson caught a wiff of the Missy nostalgia and just made a Missy Tribute video (she ain’t dead yet gurl) showing off her moves from the music video days–mostly to hawk that she’s now a singer too, but we’ll let it slide. She’s still a straight up gangster and I’m big enough to admit my dance skillz are sub-par so it was cool to watch. All this buzz is probably leading up to a Missy comeback and I love every minute of it.

5. In honor of 50 Shades opening weekend, here’s the only appearance leading up to the premiere that didn’t make me cringe all over. Jamie Dornan on the Tonight Show doing some sexy accents and popcorn reading. If you’re going to see the movie this weekend just close your eyes and picture his buttery accent wafting over your body instead of bland.com Dakota Johnson/Anastasia meekly whispering her lines while the two of them exude the sexual tension of cardboard. Happy Valentine’s Day ❤
