Fashion Friday

It’s Fashion Friday at 24 Seven Talent and we’ve put together some looks to inspire you at the office, on the beach, and a few to make you the hit at any rooftop party. The key to dressing is doing it for you. Don’t wear something because you feel pressured or everyone else is rocking it. There is only one you. Take that opportunity to show off who you are. These looks work for the urban chic professional who wants to make an impression but not an overstatement. Summer Work Looks

Accent pieces. Every woman needs a ‘favorite child’ in their wardrobe. It could be a cocktail ring, jeweled shoes, or a colorful flowing skirt. Always pair statement pieces with black, white or neutral tones and let because they alone, do all the talking. Accent pieces

Beach and poolside looks are what we wait year-round for. Sunglasses are a must-have and why not have a little fun with them? Jackie O’s, mirrored aviators, round-style Lennon’s. Pick the look that makes you a looker. Beach Time Did you think we’d forget you, boys? Why no. Double denim was not doable a few years ago. Now it’s all the rage. We even love denim sneakers. People always associate shoe-lovers with women. But men’s shoes are our most favorite thing to shop for. They’re the accessory you can use to make a statement from collector item kicks to posh Italian leather. Men's Style

3D Printed pizza is probably the most important 3D printed thing of all time. Are we right? The sauce and dough were printed by Foodini,  a 3D printer made by Natural Machines, specifically for printing food.

NASA was actually the first to fund a 3D printer and pizza was its first mission.

The 3D Printed Makeup Revolution

3d-makeup-printer

Last May, 2014 Harvard MBA candidate, Grace Choi shook up both the beauty and 3D printed world with her innovation; 3D Printed Makeup. We’re printing shoes, cameras, swanky espresso cups, but makeup? No one had figured that out. Choi took the stage at the Tech Crunch Disrupt and announced the beauty industry is charging us consumers millions of dollars for what the tech community can provide for free. She proposed an alternative to pricey manufacturing, environmental pollution, and consumer cost by creating her own 3D printer called, ‘Mink’. Retailing at $300, Mink allows us to forever paint our faces by copying the color codes we see online and in person, enabling us to produce our own beauty arsenal. According to Choi, the technology she invented doesn’t only unlock images, it unlocks pixels, so we’re going to live in a world where we can snap a picture of our friend’s lipstick and be able to create the color.

Behold, Grace Choi’s Tech Crunch speech below. The Q&A portion at the end is especially intriguing. Choi handles questions from technology leaders, men twice her age, with poise and intelligence. One asked why Choi would choose to target 13-20 year-old females when she should be marketing to ‘influencers’. Her response, was that if her product is as life changing as she feels it is, it will fast become an integral part of young women’s day-to-day. Hence, the ‘influencers’ will flock.
