Calling someone a “hipster” seems like more of an insult than a compliment these days. But if we can look past bulky fedoras, black thick-rimmed glasses and the insistence that a Pabst in hand is an accessory, there is some fun to be had with this fashion trend. Check out G’s look from “Hipster Brunch,” and you’ll be rocking plaid, but avoiding lumberjack comments, in no time!
Plaid can’t be left to only the devices of school uniform designers — or farmers. Rather than decking out head to toe in the trendy print, choose one great piece, like G’s Boy by Band of Outsiders dress in blue plaid. It says “I know what’s cool,” but it doesn’t leave you dealing with sweating in flannel.

It’s not a secret that the G star has the world’s best fans! But when y’all aren’t coveting her recipes or the newest Nickelback insult, we know it’s all about the shews — and the outfits, the make up and the accessories (baby doll heads included). Even though G might not be dressed in some fantasy garb (the bikini thing is never happening, guys), let’s all take a moment to appreciate this effortless look. This one’s for you!

With our newest episode, Fantastic Foods 2 (tonight at 10pm ET on Cooking Channel), I can’t help but reminisce about how awesome the fans have been. Between typing in ALL CAPS (all the time) and permanently branding oneself with a Bitchin’ Kitchen tattoo, one thing goes without saying: We have the best community EVER! Even the ones who thought posting their telephone numbers on our public page was a good idea, I heart you, too (but you may want to change your number now). Here are my top-three fan moments:
I was more than stoked to be a part of Chopped All-Stars, and I was even more amazed to see how many of my fans came out to show their support when I was eliminated for dropping my balls. In addition to posting, tweeting and sending emails, our community even started redemption petitions! Now you gotta love (or be scared of) fans who will plot revenge missions. Not to mention, they all have a newfound hatred for mango shots. I can’t blame them.

When it comes to the touchy topic of PMS, we could all do with a little less mood swings and a little more food cravings.

Put down the chocolate, and pick up these fashion tips for a playful summer look that’s sure to put a smile back on your face.
We know the call of the Snuggie is strong at this time, but there are comfy clothes that still show off the benefits of being a woman, instead of just hiding the negatives.

Whether you want to admit it or not, at least one of your friends is a hipster. You might not believe it at first, but take a good look: the glasses, the mom jeans, the ironic T-shirts. And now they’ve invited you to their loft for a potluck party.
So what do you bring to this shindig? For starters, no tuna casseroles or Jell-O molds — unless they’re shots. Here’s how to rock the potluck, no matter which course you’re asked to bring.

We understand how you may not look your best after a night of partying. But once you’ve had a mean lookin’ breakfast and showered, we suggest going light on the makeup with some neutrals, slapping on a trendy (and comfy) outfit and heading back out there! G shows you how you can go from morning mess to afternoon A-lister with a plaid shirt and the right attitude (or heels, wtv).

With all the pills, nerdy self-help books and doctor shows available, it seems like people are forgetting the best method to curb their crazy: food. Check out some foods that boost or calm your mood, depending on how “emo” you’re feeling.
Everyone knows chocolate makes you happy. And it’s not just the act of ripping off that foil and ravaging it like a baby leopard that will subdue you. Chocolate is loaded with anandamide, which gives you a sense of relaxation as it changes the dopamine levels in the brain. “Take with heartache, happiness and everything in between.” But don’t just stop at the wrapper; enjoy chocolate in delish desserts like Bacon Chocolates and Banana Fritters Drizzled With Chocolate Sauce. Tastes good, does good, should probably come with its own prescription.

With all the fuss that comes with weddings, it’s always nice to chill out and wear something that isn’t made of taffeta. But simple doesn’t mean you have to skimp out on looking good — or settle for wearing I’m-painfully-single stained sweats. G shows us how you can take a laid-back dress and make it pop — with color and accessories, of course! The added bonus? The majority of this outfit is vintage, allowing you to splurge on other more-luxurious items (like shews).
Dress & Belt
Finding your soulmate might not be easy, but finding a wicked one-of-a-kind piece in a vintage shop can be! One of the crew’s favorite spots in L.A., Wasteland, has all sorts of goodies like this retro Patterson J. Kincaid blue dress. G accessorizes hers with another vintage item: a simple crystal belt. You don’t need to spend a fortune to look like a million bucks. Seriously, we’ve bought entire outfits for less than $60 (much less than you’ll be forced to spend on your BFF’s wedding). Browse for similar belts here.

Lecturing you on drinking less to avoid hangovers is like lecturing you on not eating all the Halloween candy in one night. I know you’re going to do it anyways, and you know you’re going to regret it. So let’s just make some breakfast and move on:
Everyone knows that grease is No. 1 in prevention. Wanna know why? It coats the stomach the way a mother cradles a baby. Give in to it. Scoffing a cheeseburger will limit the amount of alcohol absorbed into the stomach lining and bloodstream, helping to prevent hangovers. Or allowing you to drink more.

When it comes to trends, some things are better decisions than others. Unlike the photos tagged all over Facebook of you “rocking” Crocs, food trends are between you and your plate (or maybe the restaurateur you’re visiting for the third time this week). Wanna look as good as that hyped meal tastes? Then take a look at G’s outfit for a timelessly cool look. Then, put down the thick-rimmed black glasses and back away slowly.
Don’t spend your time worrying about what color is in season. Rock ‘em all like G does in this slick and colorful Mark McNairy men’s floral shirt. Yup, masculine pieces can pair with a feminine look! Check out McNairy’s stuff here, and listen to what he’s got to say about fashion — or just do your best impression with a Hawaiian shirt.
