Your May Horoscope: Week II

I try to make all weekly decisions based off these star charts- I hope you all do the same!  Aries: If you haven’t tried it recently, quit your job. You’ll be amazed at how different life becomes when you don’t have a steady income.  Taurus: Enjoy a hot cup of coffee at least once this week. The warm, soothing flavors will make it easier to get over the guilt you’re feeling after you betrayed your best friend. Gemini: Don’t buy…

Get the Look: The PETA Vic.

As I’m sure you all have heard, Cleveland Fashion Week was out of this world this year- and I’m not just talking about designer Peiter Von Gabrielle’s martian inspired ear muffs. Thanks to my elite blogger status, I had a front row seat to 3 of the most incredible runway shows I have EVER attended and I can say with 75% certainty that fashion in 2017 will be better than it was in 1876, 1922, 1975, 1987, 1991 and 2011…

March Fashion Forecast

This post is actually dedicated to our number one fan, Mildo- who I think has really been with Des Geulasse since the beginning. Mildo, we are so happy you are out of jail again and are recovering. I know last week was hard when both my sister and I were unable to post on the blog due to Primrose being in the ice skating accident and me having to get my nails done, however we are really glad you stuck…

A Little Home by the Sea

I feel so blessed to have been invited into the home of Rebecca O’Becca this past weekend for a tour of her absolutely charming cottage located in the amazing Seal Beach, CA. It was such a pleasure to get to experience her great taste in design up close (rather than through her window, late at night, like I usually do). Rebecca- or Amanda as she goes by with friends- has an absolute eye for the details and her home is a…

Just Your Average Girl | Amelia McGee

I am so pleased to announce that Des Geulasse will be starting a new, incredibly moving series: Just Your Average Girl. We’ll be interviewing everyday women from around LA and getting a glimpse into their average lives. It took a while to start finding the right kind of women for this series, but I think you will all be OBSESSED with everyone once we get rolling. Without further ado, let me introduce you all to completely average Amelia McGee!! Phyllis: Hi…

New Year, New You

Happy New Year from all of us at Des Geulasse! My sister, Primrose, and I had such an amazing time on NYE doing shots of rubbing alcohol and sharing our many wonderful resolutions (my #1 for the year is to get A to finally put a ring this little finger of mine… hint hint 😉 ). We let the entire Des Geulasse staff take off for the month so my basement definitely got a little lonely- BUT I think everyone’s really…

Rustic Winter Chic

I think we can all agree that sweater weather is the best time of year. I swear there is nothing more cozy about bundling up in tights and a cable knit and heading out for a PSL. LA is just freezing this time of year- this morning it was down to 55 F and I thought all my limbs were about to fall off. I think most people assume true winter is only in the mountains and Russia (and I…

Impress Your Friends with this Easy Marilyn Monroe Halloween Costume

Growing up in the Geulasse household, my sister and I were often told by our mother that Marilyn Monroe was a starlet hussy who would burn in the fiery pits of hell because she was too beautiful. Then our mother would turn to us and say, “You both are so lucky you weren’t blessed with looks. You will live long lives. But you’ll still burn in hell.” And then she would leave the house for a week or two. Hah,…

The Art of Skinstugi

I was first introduced to the traditional Japanese art of Kintsugi by a dear friend and fellow fashionista, Miyu Topa Topa. One day, as we were both sitting outside drinking white wine spritzers and watching the sun set, Miyu said the most beautiful and profound thing I have ever heard… it went a little something like this: I see so many imperfections in the world, you know? You see this sunset, Phyllis? It is not perfect. You see this glass…

Book Review: House of Espionage

The year is 2040. World War III has been over for approximately seven months and all major nations are still on edge. It seems the only thing humanity can agree on… is fashion. And thus starts my new favorite book of the summer, Kasey O’Cassey’s new release The House of Espionage. It’s spy thriller meets romantic comedy meets high fashion style guide and I can honestly not get enough. Set in the not so distant future, O’Cassey introduces the reader to a…
