WCW: Anna Kendrick

Smokey Eye Anna Kendrick

Anna Kendrick has been on the big screen for many years now, but she really hit the big times when she starred in the box office hit Pitch Perfect. Ever since Pitch Perfect was released, Anna Kendrick has been a household name.

It's not hard to see why everybody loves Anna. She's beautiful, a phenomenal actress, a sensational singer and she is absolutely hilarious as well. One of our favorite past times is to watch TV interviews of Anna because she is so funny. Our favorite Anna Kendrick moment is when she starred on the Lip Sync Battle show. You can watch this clip below:

For your fair share of Anna Kendrick, check out a couple of her latest films: Into The Woods and Pitch Perfect 2!

WCW: Demi Lovato

Another Wednesday, another women crush. This week we are all about Demi Lovato. Demi is all over the place lately, from promoting her new skin product line to singing her new single at pool parties for her fans. Demi is all about promoting self-love and self-confidence, which is why we are totally crushing on her right now.

Demi has been in the spotlight since she was 8 years old, which has put her under the constant scrutiny of society. She has had her struggles with an eating disorder and depression, but she has powered through them and she has turned herself into a strong role model for normal teenagers who are going through similar struggles. Almost every week, Demi posts a selfie of herself with no makeup on in an effort to show girls that they can look beautiful without a ton of makeup on their faces.

You can follow Demi on twitter and on Instagram with her username @ddlovato to see her uplifting and fun posts every day!

Funny girl Amy Schumer is this summers break out star, making her this weeks WCW! Not only is she a stand up comedian, but she also writes and acts.

The movie stars big names such as LeBron James, Bill Hader and Bri Larson.

Another reason we love Amy Shumer is that she is a huge advocate for women, standing up to body stigmas and giving powerful speeches about women's equality. One of her biggest speeches was her Gloria Awards and Gala speech.

How to Wear Floral Print

            Floral print is the perfect way to brighten up your wardrobe during the spring and summer months. There is also more to florals than just pink, girly, flower patterns slapped onto a piece of fabric. They can look extremely mature and chic if you pick the correct pattern and color palette as well as great corresponding accessories.
            First, find a floral print that you are comfortable and confident wearing. There are hundreds of types of prints so it can be difficult to find something that you like.  I always start by deciding if I want a more busy, detailed pattern or a simple, bold one.  This will help to divide and conquer your options.  If you like detailed floral prints, try to keep the colors to a minimum. Too many colors in an already busy print can look messy and juvenile.  If you opt for a more simple print, having multiple colors won’t look as busy or distracting!
            Styling floral print is our next task. My general rule of thumb is to pick one piece of your outfit to be floral print, whether it’s your jacket, pants, top, or shoes. As for the other elements of your look, keep it neutral. This way, the floral print will stand out and be a statement piece, and the rest of your outfit will look will look mature and tasteful. (Pairing a floral button down with a simple, stylish blazer and slacks is a great way to wear floral print to the office, too!)
            As for accessories, again, keep it simple. A large statement necklace with multiple colors and textures can be distracting. If you keep jewelry and other accessories simple and to a minimum, it will complement the floral print and not look overdone.
            Don’t be intimidated by florals; keep other elements of your look neutral, simple, and classic, and you will have a mature, sophisticated ensemble.

5 Ways to Wear Summer Scarves

1.  Front Tie Knot: Give your long pattern scarf a new look by tying it vertically down with a knot in the middle. Pair one of our simple maxi dresses for a more formal style.

2. Neck Bustle: Go for a more sophisticated look doing a neck bustle by knotting the ends of your scarf and wrapping it to fit closely around your neck. Pair with one of our simple tanks and jeans for a casual summer look. 

3. Shall: For a chillier evening use your scarf as a shall. Pair with one of our more formal dresses for an evening out to keep warm without having to wear a sweater. 

4. Loop Tie: For an everyday, simple look do a loop tie by folding your scarf in half twice and looping the end through the hole. Pair with one of our simple tanks and pattern skirts for a cute summer day. 

5. Triangle Tie: For an edgier look use the triangle tie by folding your scarf into a square and connecting the corners to form a triangle. Tie both ends behind your neck so that the triangle hangs down in the front. Pair with our pattern shorts and a simple blazer for an edgy day look.
