Got a Girl Crush On: MessQueen NYC

MessQueen is more than just a candy store of unisex spandex wear by pint-sized designer, Courtney Gamble—it’s also a force to be reckoned with as depicted in this fictionally fun video of some of NY’s favorite lady cyclists.

Got a Girl Crush On: American Apparel’s newest model, Jacky: age 62

There was something so compelling about Jacky’s look and energy when we first spotted her in a New York restaurant this winter, we introduced ourselves and pulled up a chair. During a long discussion that touched on everything from career choices and nutrition to insights on relationships, age and beauty, we asked if she would consider being photographed by us. We were thrilled when she agreed. 

I’ve dyed my hair enough in my young life to want to own this look once I go gray. File this under “STUDYING THIS”

Got a Girl Crush On: The women’s cycling team of Afghanistan

Despite the cultural taboo of females on bicycles, there is an Afghan Women’s National Cycling Team in Kabul. These women who challenge their country’s gender expectations by riding are the subjects of an upcoming film called Afghan Cycles (Let Media). Earlier this year, co-directors Sarah Menzies and Whitney Connor Clapper travelled with Mountain2Mountain Executive Director Shannon Galpin to Afghanistan with a stash of cameras and more than 350 pounds of bike gear. The goal was to document these amazing, courageous women, but also to provide support for what is hopefully a growing movement. 

This is so inspiring.

Got a Girl Crush On: Lizzo’s “Lizzobangers”

New installment of Music Tuesday here at GAGC!

Minneapolis newcomer Lizzo drew a lot of comparisons to Missy Elliott with the release of her video for Batches and Cookies earlier this year, taking the “weird rap” crown with a flagrantly fun clip full of food-based innuendo. She even butters up a man’s torso. Really. (via dummymag)

Got a Girl Crush On: Adren Wray’s photos of creatives project, Boots & Pine

"I am inspired by those who use dress as a vehicle for creative expression and for serious fun. Boots & Pine started with my love of people watching and of style, and is growing into something bigger and better than I could’ve imagined. I’ve loved getting to meet and befriend so many wonderful people, and I hope to continue growing this project into the future."
