The Friday Follow: 4 Instagram Accounts We’re Loving Right Now

The Friday Follow

There’s a kid in all of us. Which is why we can’t resist double-tapping every single photo these fashionable, pint-sized cuties post.

1.  We fell head over heels for little Mayhem’s paper dresses weeks ago. So we obviously can’t stop guessing what @2sisters_angie will post next. 

2. At only five years old, @alonso_mateo already has more Gucci (and swagger) than us.

3. If only we could rock a topknot and aviators like @hails_world. One day, one day.

4. It’s safe to say @masonkjsmommy has mastered the art of layering. His cardigan collection is beyond enviable.

Grumpy Cat Visits Vogue (and We’re Jealous)

The Internet’s sulkiest sensation went high-fashion yesterday with a trip to the New York Vogue offices. According to Fashionista, the well-traveled cat first met the magazine’s team in Austin at SXSW, where they really hit it off. So much so, in fact, that Vogue invited her to visit as a birthday treat (who needs Friskies?). After the tour, a yet-to-be-revealed birthday surprise, and a quick cuddle with Grace Coddington, Grumpy Cat headed home. Best birthday ever? I’d say so – even if she doesn’t.

#CastMeMarc: Label Picks New Face via Social Media

Last night, ultra-cool label Marc by Marc Jacobs announced that it will be selecting the face of its latest campaign through a social media “casting call.” Yes, you read that right – one of us mere tweeting mortals might just skyrocket to glossy-paged stardom.

The audition process is pretty straightforward. All you have to do is snap a picture, hashtag it with #CastMeMarc, and post it to Instagram or Twitter. So expect your feeds to get slammed with artfully staged selfies over the next few days. I mean, who could resist the opportunity to join the ranks of Victoria Beckham, Sofia Coppola, Miley Cyrus, and the Fanning sisters? Not this writer.

Now, go get that selfie game on point. The “casting call” ends April 9.

LOL: Top Digital Pranks for April Fools’ Day 2014

From search engines to fashion labels, some of today’s top companies celebrated April Fools’ Day by – what else? – posting a few online pranks. Below, a roundup of the gags that got us good.

1. lululemon’s Spray-On Yoga Pants
It appears lululemon has gone even sheerer. Inspired by a Jimmy Kimmel spoof commercial, the brand launched its first-ever spray-on yoga pant for April Fools’ Day.

2. Kayak.com Compares Hundreds of Bathrooms
Known for comparing travel packages, kayak.com created a limited-time tab on its site encouraging shoppers to “Find a place to go. Right now.” Users were even given the option to refine their search based on cleanliness. “Disgusting” earned a recurring reservation at a facility in NYC, while “impeccable” booked an extended stay at the Taj Mahal of toilets.

3. Bonobos’s Techstyle
This April Fools’ Day, Bonobos took wearable technology to a whole new level with “Wifiber,” a smart fabric that can do everything from read your body temperature to post your innermost feelings on an ex’s Facebook wall (whoops).

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

Last week, we went over which trends to wear on top. This week, it’s all about what to pair on bottom.

1. Those overalls you loved as a kid? They’re cool again. So grab a grown-up version (or three).

2. Miniskirts aren’t for everyone. But midi skirts are a totally different story.

3. We’ll take any excuse to stay comfortable while looking chic. So, boyfriend jeans? They’re a wardrobe must.

4. Printed trousers. Any print – floral to animal. We want them.

5. One piece of clothing, and you’re ready to go. Ah, the beauty of a jumpsuit

Bag Snob Bloggers Set to Launch Their Own Handbag Line

Tina Craig and Kelly Cook of the popular blog Bag Snob are set to launch their own line of handbags this spring, which will (appropriately) be called “Snob Essentials.” WWD reports that the line will feature crossbodies, totes, and backpacks complete with vegan leather and custom hardware. The best part? Unlike the bags the bloggers write about, their own label will be set at a completely attainable price point – as in $60 to $128. “We chose to launch at this price point because we firmly believe that money is not indicative of good taste and want to offer well-designed bags at attainable prices,” Tina told Fashionista in an interview.

Leaving Late-Night: Chelsea Handler Wraps Talk Show

After eight years of witty remarks and oft-raunchy jokes, Chelsea Handler – TV’s sole late-night comedy queen – is stepping down from her E! throne. And now, as Handler gears up to leave Chelsea Lately at the end of this year, we have so many unanswered questions. Who will fill her shoes? What will she do next? And, most importantly: Where will Chuy go?

Chelsea Handler Leaving Talk Show

According to her manager, Irving Azoff, who spoke with The Hollywood Reporter, the comedian has been actively contemplating her post–talk show career. She’s also rumored to be in negotiations with several different “suitors.” Among them? Netflix, FX, and even a few radio stations. The fate of her faithful sidekick, however, remains unknown.

Opening Day: The Next National Holiday?

Could you use another holiday away from the office? Chances are, the answer is yes. Good news – Budweiser created a petition to make Opening Day a nationally recognized holiday. And it’s already reached the minimum threshold of 100,000 signatures required to receive a response from the White House.

According to Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith, the campaign’s spokesperson, “The more than 100,000 people who signed the petition are just a fraction of the 1.3 million who will attend Opening Day games this year. The day is already an unofficial holiday, but now it’s time to make it official.”

We couldn’t agree more, Ozzie. Tell us, where do we sign?
