Kesha without the $

This week I spent mesmerized behind a computer screen, watching both of Kesha’s new music videos on repeat with a lump in my throat. Praying and Woman are just two of the 14 tracks that make up Rainbow, her first album in 4 years, which is expected to drop August 11th. Kesha, once known as Ke$ha, the “$” as a subtle nudge to how broke she was at the time (actually) has come a long way since she was brushing…

Budding Floral Designer

Last week I was invited to take a floral design class with the top rated florist in NYC. I'm not typically the DIY kind of person, but wow. I left feeling as though I had found my calling.  If you look at my Instagram page, you'll see a lot of flowers incorporated into my feed; snaps from other people's gardens (i'm yard-less), or bouquets my boyfriend brought home. Now it all makes sense, i'm pretty much destined to be a…

Sippin’ on Mint Julep

If you're like me, you've probably been shopping at Forever 21 and H&M since high school. In college you probably added a few more upper-fast fashion retailers to your collection, like Zara and Mango. After awhile, you begin to crave something new. There are only so many times you're OK with someone wearing an identical outfit at the party you're at. I recently discovered The Mint Julep Boutique online, and I love it. For those of you who like shopping…

Patook: The Future of Friendship Apps?

In my experience with relationship and friendship apps, even if you are only looking for friendship, you will get hit on, unsolicited pics will be sent with no shame, and people will get hostile when they are rejected/ignored (@byefelipe). Making friends is hard enough as it is! It’s not surprising to me that people are looking for a more genuine platform. Patook—an app used for making strictly platonic friends—reached out to the Mack In Style team to test it out…

Style Obituaries: What’s Out Now

If you’re anything like me, you’re pretty quick to follow trends. Sure, you may wait a season for the runway look to be available in Zara, but you’re generally an early adapter. It’s important to have a strong sense of personal style, but you can’t help what comes in and out of stores. For this reason, it’s up to you to decide what trends are worth investing in and ignoring. Personally, i’m reluctant to give into a trend that involves…

Our Summer Crush

Last summer we were into chokers and bell bottom jeans, but this year it's all about statement earrings and bell sleeves! If you're under 5'5 like I am, there is no doubt you're excited about this.  Don't worry about it going out of style anytime soon, we see this trend extending into the fall and winter. This week, we shot some of Crush Boutique's hottest new pieces for late summer, and we are LOVING what they're serving. With a little touch…

A Weekend in Munich

Having been blessed with the opportunity to work remotely through my current job, I spent the month of June in the charming city that is Munich, Germany. With nights, weekends, and beautiful summer weather at my disposal, I spent long hours wandering about the Bavarian capital in an attempt to hunt down the city’s most prized landmarks while simultaneously searching for the best place to grab a beer. (more…)

A Q&A with Eleanor Wheeler: Disabled Activist & Social Media Queen

Meet Eleanor Wheeler, a badass disabled 17-year-old queer activist from Orange County working to erase ableism from activist spaces. Founder of We Exist Collective, The Superhero Project, and a social media queen on Twitter and Insta @elliewheels - the Mack In Style team was dying to know more about this badass lady in action. This week, I was fortunate enough to chat with Eleanor about her story, her movement, and the fact that the disabled communities aren't looking for any…

Tell Me I’m Your National Anthem

The fourth of July is next week, and you've probably been scrambling trying to find the perfect patriotic bathing suit to rep while crushing spiked seltzers on your friend's boat (hint: just go to target.) If the ocean (or lake... i guess?) isn't on your priority list, you'll probably be having a city BBQ with your besties. In that case, you're probably seeking something cotton, red or white or blue, and stylish. Gotchu. This week I shot with my new…

One-Piece Wonders: #BBBSwim

By now you've surely seen her textured, figure- flattering leggings on multitudes of women in Boston's hottest gyms and studios. You might own a few pairs yourself and you may have even taken the class that started it all, Booty by Brabants. Kelly Brabants, fitness instructor and fashion designer, is the one we can thank for improving the workout-wear and derrières of Boston babes everywhere. She's created a cult-like following, drawing inspiration from the Brazilian booty in both her workout class…
