Rock The Lady Vote!


By midnight, America will have a new president elect (or the same president). Talk about a nail biter!!! Leandra (aka the USA's resident Man Repeller) and I are pretty fired up about the whole thing, and think you should be, too—ESPECIALLY if you're a lady. As neighbors (we live mere blocks from each other), we do all sorts of girl-tastic things, including voting. Some of these other things include: drinking white wine spritzers, talking about lady bits, talking about sex, doing each other's makeup, painting each other's nails, and learning how to Dougie...all of which took place in her living room last night.

With a nod to Kate Upton's infamous Terry-lensed GQ cover, Leandra got into the star-spangled spirit with: a custom red-white-and-blue manicure—courtesy of ITG's resident nail enthusiast (and die-hard patriot) Elizabeth Brockway—plus a BRM (that's a Bold Red Mouth to you; Rouge D'Armani #400), and proceeded to spastically dance her way through an entire box of rocket pops for this special ITG Rock The Lady Vote installment. So get out there, if you haven't already—get your box to that other box today and make your voice heard. In the last election, 56% of voters were female. Damn, we're loud.

Leandra wears an American Apparel bikini top over an Etoile Isabel Marant tee, vintage Levi's cutoffs, her g'ma's belt, Golden Goose sneakers, and her own jewelry (Aurelie Bidermann, Jennifer Fisher, Djula, and Marc Henry).

    ..."each others makeup"? C'mon, ITG! The impeccable writing on this site is a big part of why I'm a faithful reader. The coolest of the cool chicks should know about the best lipsticks, cast their ballots in elections, AND use punctuation correctly.
