Stylewise, It Was Kind of an Awesome Week

Apr 27 2014 - 5:00am

While we're undeniably jazzed it's the weekend [1], we need to stop and give thanks to a week that was jam-packed with all kinds of fantastic fashion news. Consider what we learned this week: whether or not we're basic b*tches, that Mindy Kaling is a bona fide fashion icon, and the type of stone we should consider for our engagement rings. You're intrigued, right? Keep scrolling to catch up on all of it in case you didn't see it the first time around.

Are You Basic or Not?

The web started buzzing about being basic, and we immediately turned toward the closet to figure out the key pieces that could identify whether or not you're afflicted [4]. The verdict's still out on how many of our Twitter followers are guilty.

East Coast vs. West Coast

After J.Crew style star Jenna Lyons [5] started dishing on the differences between style on both coasts, we got to thinking: which would our readers side with [6]? Thankfully, the Facebook community is never shy about expressing its opinion.

Your Stone Style

It looks like a lot of our Facebook fans are considering taking the next step in their relationship if the popularity of our diamond-deciding quiz [7] is any indication.

A Breakup Letter

With warm Spring weather still playing coy with NYC, we're angry and totally over wearing black tights with dresses and skirts. We're betting a whole bunch of Twitter agreed with the "we're done" letter we penned [13] to the offending item.

Mindy Is a Surprise Fashion Girl

Twitter loved finding out that laugh pro Mindy Kaling is, actually, a secret style star. We studied her Instagram account for her best style takeaways [14].
