  • #WomanCrushWednesday - Elisa Goodkind and Lilly Mandelbaum

    This week the spotlight is on mother/daughter fashion mavens Elisa Goodkind and Lilly Mandelbaum of StyleLikeU. I’m not sure how I first came across the site but I have fond memories of sneakily going through their closet profiles of cool people with unconventional style during my downtime at a little boutique I worked at years ago. It’s amazing to see how far this dream team has come, expanding the content to conversations about beauty, bodies, creativity and living a unique life, as well as having open dialogues about their own struggles with body image and beauty standards. I was SO INTO their Second Skin series (fingers crossed that more are in the works) but it’s their latest project Whats Underneath, that is really getting a lot of much-deserved attention right now. If you’re not familiar, I highly recommend procrastinating on whatever you need to get done and have a little StyleLikeU marathon.

    I'm also including their StyleLikeU Manifesto because it's so great:

     

    -Be aware of how marketing affects you.
    -Don’t wish to be someone else.
    -You are your best editor.
    -Beauty is confidence.
    -Your imperfections make you you.
    -Vulnerability is strength.
    -Trendiness is not style.
    -Dress for yourself.
    -Question your assumptions
    -Don’t limit yourself to boxes and labels.
    -Life is not a dress rehearsal
    -Style cannot be bought
    -Indifference is not cool
    -Style is political.

      I adore these two!! I go on binges where I watch an hour or more at a time. I love how they shoot each piece and the people they choose!
