nogoodforme.com's top 10 whatevs of 2007
Before we list off all the movies and musics that made our hearts go boom in 2007, we're going to get into the much more important stuff of the year - like new favorite blogs and boutiques and beauty products and big huge crushes of all sorts of stripes. Dig the randomness!
Most life-altering footwear purchase: cowboy boots
Most life-altering beauty finds: Giovanni Styling Glue (goodbye, frizzy head!), Skin Amnesty Restore/Protect Serum (hello, happy skin!)
Grooviest onstage attire: Jenny Lewis and Becky Stark and Patti Smith
Most inappropriate crushes: Michael Cera and Emile Hirsch
Most beloved new blog: Cat Party
Accessories trend I thought I'd be into forever but apparently I'm already over it: feather headbands (so good while it lasted, though)
Most irresistible online boutique: Bona Drag (I heart my Erica Weiner wolf tooth necklace)
Best reason not to get out of bed on a weekend morning: Marie Antoinette on DVD, plus some rose petal raspberry macarons from Boule L.A.
Number-one new style idol: St. Vincent
Most adorable yet potentially uncool choice of TV fashion icon: Mary-Louise Parker on Weeds (surely somebody else is with me on this - the woman really knows how to wear a t-shirt)
Most covetable eco-fashion line: Anna Cohen
(L to R: Mary-Louise Parker, St. Vincent, suit by Anna Cohen)
Most life-altering footwear purchase: Faux Balenciaga ankle boots; or the vintage English riding boots I scored on ebay
Most life-altering beauty finds: Comme des Garcons Incense: Avignon; the Gap Individuals fragrance series, particular the Visionary and the Original scents (I've been looking for a good yet subtle leather-fragrance scent for ages)
Grooviest onstage attire: The dude from Deerhunter, Kazu from Blonde Redhead, Bat for Lashes
Most inappropriate crushes: I don't think it's inappropriate, but I do have huge crushes on Ben Whishaw and Romain Duris
Most beloved new blog: A Very Beautiful Stranger - surely the most stylish boy in Norway, no?
Accessories trend I thought I'd be over but apparently I'm still into it: Gigantic scarves (but not keffiyehs, the cultural appropriation issues are way too ick)
Most irresistible online boutique: Oak, or Yoox for deals on Rick Owens' Lilies and DRKSHDW lines
Best reason not to get out of bed on a weekend morning: J.B.G.
Number-one new style idol: Clemence Poesy
Most adorable yet potentially uncool choice of TV fashion icon: Um, I don't get to watch much television these days...I still miss Olivia D'Abo from "The Wonder Years"
Most covetable eco-fashion line: Beau Soleil
(L to R: Bradford Cox of Deerhunter; Clemence Poesy; Romain Duris)
Most life-altering footwear purchase: OKAY FINE WHATEVER: my stupid, ugly, much-loathed Sorel Caribou boots. Speaking strictly in terms of life-alteration, I must admit it is rather nice to know that, even as my nose and fingers feel like they are about to crack off my body, my feet will always be toasty and dry.
Most life-altering beauty finds: Note to all big-eyelash obsessives everywhere: toss out your Benefit BadGal Lash and replace it with a tube of Fresh Supernova mascara; I guarantee you'll never go back.
Grooviest onstage attire: I would probably be struggling with this one a whole lot less if I listened to any music made beyond the year 1974. I don't know exactly what Betty Davis wore onstage, but whatever it happened to be, I'm sure groovy is the understatement of the century.
Most inappropriate crushes: Unbelievably enough, my ironic crush on Zac Efron was never really ironic at all. Oh yeah, and the fact that Hugh Grant stuck his fingers in some girl's mouth while he was PDA-ing her at a chichi London restaurant only made me want him more than ever.
Most beloved new blog: I second Cat Party.
Accessories trend I thought I'd be into forever but apparently I'm already over it: In March, I bought this neon slap bracelet with a giant stuffed frog charm on it that I thought was pretty fly. While it was entirely instrumental in the successful realization of my brief foray into Nu Rave Peter Pan-chic, um, well, yeah. I'm over it.
Most irresistible online boutique: One of my favorite games in the world is called Visiting Creatures of Comfort And Pretending I Can Afford Everything I Want. I fill up my Shopping Bag with about $10,000 worth of merchandise, then close the window and spend the rest of the day feeling sorry for myself.
Best reason not to get out of bed on a weekend morning: An extra-large coffee from Cafe Depot (one of the only things I'll miss about Montreal), dried pineapple rings, a brand-new crossword book, thermal leggings, and my boyfriend looking cute in J.Crew polar bear-print jammer pants.
Number-one new style idol: Al Pacino in Serpico
Most adorable yet potentially uncool choice of TV fashion icon: Kumar on House?
Most covetable eco-fashion line: Keep Company sneakers!
(L to R: Al (well, duh); dashing young Zac; Betty Davis)
