AbstractSmile: Bold Lips, Mom Jeans and a Bomber Jacket 

Stephanie Campian, better known by her blog name, ABSTRACTSMILE fronts YHM’s fall 2016 Look Book in her new obsession, the bomber jacket. Campian’s look screams “edge” with her black leather choker and black heel booties! She keeps it simple beneath the bomber with a basic silk camisole and mom jeans. The dark shades accommodate the season’s ambiance and color scheme. Bomber jackets are great for the transition to fall because, unlike a parka, it accommodates this period where you leave in the morning and it’s frigid; but by the time you leave school or work, it’s smoldering hot out. She throws on a black leather messenger with iron-ons for an added retro feel. The iron-ons give the pack a thrift shop look. The cat-eye sunglasses takes care of the rest alongside the bold red lip splashed against the demure canvas. By Sunny Tsao | Photography: Nicholas Perrone

Homme Style: Marcel Floruss of One Dapper Street

There is a charming and magnetic pull for a man who is well-tailored. Just like men, women love to do a double take, especially for a super attractive gentleman walking by. This week our attention is on Marcel Dominik Floruss, a 24-year-old German native heartthrob sharing his thoughts on fashion and relationships. The recently single and stylish gent behind One Dapper Street is an easy going guy who nods to music, meditation, and Netflix for a relaxing time. YHM: Do you have any hidden talents? MDF: Hopefully not so hidden anymore in the very near future, but I used to be a professional dancer ranging from ballet to hip-hop with a focus on the latter. I am hoping to bring more of that back and present fashion that way! YHM: What’s your social media obsession? MDF: I am a serious meme addict. I think I follow about twenty different meme accounts and regularly catch up on the latest posts. YHM: Do you have a favorite love song or romantic movie? MDF: Okay, ultra-cheesy, but I actually …

Tanesha Awasthi: A Girl With Curves, Positive Vibes, & Style

Tanesha Awasthi; if that name doesn’t ring a bell, then you’re clearly missing out on major style trends and some serious body-positive-attitude! Awasthi is a dominant force in the influencer realm with Old Navy, WhoWhatWear.com, Cosmopolitan, and Vogue in her top ranking of press time. She has gained quite the popularity since her blog, formerly known as Girl With Curves, was conceptualized in 2011, but the full-time mommy, wife, and entrepreneur has her super supportive husband, Dave Awasthi, and fan base to thank for her success which she counts as a brave move. “I think sharing who I am and sharing my life online with strangers is fearless, especially considering the person I used to be, painfully shy and insecure about my body, my height, big feet, the list goes on.” Awasthi breaks down her journey, most memorable moments – thus far, and her next chapter in life. YHM: How did you make the transition from a tech-savvy woman to a style influencer? TA: My husband suggested I start the blog back in 2011 when …

Blogger & the Brand; A How-To Guide for Success

In a world where lighting is everything and #bossbabe has become a slogan for successful women, there is clearly an overwhelming magnet for perfection like never before. Although I would like to strive for perfection, rainy nights, New York Fashion Week and the MTA train system don’t exactly mix well together. Stepping off the platform in the West Village and into the sleek ambiance of SUSHISAMBA, an upscale restaurant that serves a blend of Japanese and Brazilian cuisine, was every blogger’s dream networking event. Marcus Campbell, the founder of Ombre Digital, a fashion marketing agency, greeted me to the company’s first Blogger and the Brand showcase. The event’s line-up consisted of some major networking opportunities for influencers to get face time with brands which in a nutshell equals possible profit for both parties. Dishing out advice and a helpful roadmap towards success were panelists Christina Ferrari, Christine Bibbo Herr of NYC Pretty, and Kim Westwood of Shopping Links. Campbell took some time to guide us through his company’s first blogger event and what to expect …

Toni & Katrina of Under The Sweater Talk Goals, Blogging & Feminism

Throughout the years, I’ve learned that women supporting other women is one of the greatest things to ever occur. When we go through adolescence, we see girls fighting each other rather than standing next to each other. As we get older and grow more confident with ourselves, we realize that pitting ourselves against other women is a waste of time and energy. With March being Women’s History Month, I hope we can appreciate and value ourselves and also the friendships we’ve made with other women. Don’t pay attention to those glossy magazines that say only one actress can look good in a designer dress. And forget about the “Squad goals”, which ultimately exclude others. It’s 2016 and I say it’s time we join forces with one another. That should be the ultimate goal. On that same note, we’re happy to introduce two amazing women, Toni Esteban and Katrina Bartolome. They are co-founders and writers of the blog, Under The Sweater. They were happy to speak about women’s issues, share their goals, and describe their ideal …

Viktoriya Sener: How to Step Outside of Your Comfort Zone

Viktoriya Sener’s lifestyle is all fashion from her blog Tie Bow-Tie to doubling as a photographer and social media specialist throughout the week. “If you truly have a passion for something, it’s not that boring kind of work anymore. You’re in the process 24 hours,” Sener explains. Originally from the Ukraine, the colorful and confident blogger calls Istanbul, Turkey home and shares with us how she found confidence by taking risks. YHM: What has traveling to and living in different countries taught you about yourself and the world? Viktoriya Sener: Well, let’s say there are no bad nations. There are good and not so good people anywhere in the world. Living in different cultures brings unforgettable experiences and teaches you how to be more patient towards each other. YHM: How does someone with a Masters in Finance Management end up in the fashion industry? VS: It actually helps very much with my blog, if you treat it like a business, such education is a godsend. When I moved to Istanbul, I had a lot of …
