What We Wore to Lady Gaga’s artRave: The ARTPOP Ball Tour
When I found out I was going to Lady Gaga’s artRave tour, my first thought was, “What am I going to wear?!” Like any Little Monster, I wanted to worship her the way she would want to be worshiped—through a fabulous outfit. 
"Telephone" is one of my favorite Lady Gaga songs of all-time, and I really wanted to recreate one of her looks from the video. With a little cardboard and hot glue, this YouTube tutorial, and a lot of patience, I managed to origami a solid version of her "Let’s Make a Sandwich" headpiece (it took 10 hours over the course of a couple days—but it was so worth it). A costume shop wig, fake eyelashes, and loads of blue eyeshadow completed my look, and I was ready to put my paws up and just dance.

What We’re Wearing: One Denim Dress, Two Ways
If you ask us, denim is a year-round closet staple. Jorts (read: jean shorts) and shortalls work well as warm-weather bottoms and unexpected one-pieces, but few things are easier to style than a dress—especially for the office. Take this playful frock by Michael Stars made out of a soft tencel fabric, which Andrea and Claire both scooped up at the Cali brand’s curbside boutique. 
While Andrea styled hers with a cool mint clutch and leather brogues (with poppy pink laces!), Claire opted for a western vibe with suede booties and oversized retro sunnies. The contrast pockets offer just enough room to stash a work ID. Get their outfit breakdowns below:

Look Who We Met: Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere
Lucky us! One of our favorite bloggers, Emily Schuman of Cupcakes and Cashmere, stopped by the InStyle office to hang with our editors and dish on her new collection for Club Monaco. We’re loving the line’s sophisticated separates, like a crisp, tailored button-down and a structured pencil skirt with cool leather details.
Schuman rocked a flirty floral tunic dress from her collection. “Since it’s such a sweet piece, you could also offset it with a leather biker jacket, a smudgy smokey eye, and black booties,” she suggested. Noted!

What We’re Wearing: Shortalls

When overalls began popping up everywhere, I couldn’t have been more excited. They’re easy and adorable, and if Emma Watson is back on the bandwagon, so am I.

I began my search to find the perfect pair, and I couldn’t find any that I loved. So I asked my mom if she still had the black shortalls she used to wear in the ’90s, and luckily she had hung on to them. She sent them to me, and the rest is fashion history. I’ve only worn them twice so far, but I can already tell they will be my go-to all summer long. Clearly the love of overalls runs in the family. Thanks, mom!
