Ciao, Haulers! I’m just back from Italy where I spent two weeks with only a carry-on and a backpack. I brought a handful of basic tops to go with my not-so-basic bottoms, with the hope that I could create more than one outfit with limited pieces. I also threw in a few dresses for fun.

Style Stories: Joellen Lu

Senior Social Media Manager Joellen Lu’s style is fashion-forward, carefree, and, what I like to call, “kinda sleepy.” It’s effort with an effortless affect. High + low.

Before Anything Else: Intern Edition

“Monthly Favorites” is the YouTube tag that refuses to die, and for good reason: 1) it’s a great way to share and discover new and thrilling products/tools/snacks/media, and 2) there’s nothing more compelling than knowing what other people find compelling. Before Anything Else is our version of “Monthly Favorites,” and each month we feature new people with new perspectives. This month’s BAE features our intern crew: Andrea Kostovick, Mallory Wackerman, Francesca Mosconi, and Eliz Kuscu.

Tips on Getting the Perfect Fro

Over the years I’ve tried countless hairstyles in an effort to get the perfect fro - braid-outs, twist-outs, bantu knots, wash n’ gos - but what I’ve discovered is that the styling method isn’t actually all that important. What is important is finding the right cut, and then finding the right products to maintain that desired style.

Before Anything Else: September

A little over three months ago, I embarked on a journey with Accutane. I’m now halfway through my treatment and am suddenly obsessed with skincare. Like really. The amount of money I spent on products after my last paycheck? Out of this world.

Bali: A Scrapbook

Joellen Lu, our Senior Social Media Manager, took a 35-hour INSANE-but-totally-worth-it flight to Bali this summer, and came back with billions of beloved photos, food recs, hike recs, beach recs, and just a TON of genuine enthusiasm for Indonesia and its culture.
