Another week, another bevy of fashionable ‘grammers. Keep scrolling for the pics that caught our eye, including a must-have maxi dress and a made-in-Philly bikini we’re dying to sport this summer. Oh, and remember to follow Shoppist right here.

10 Philly Fashion Instagrams You Need to See This Week: Geometric Wedges, Fluorescent Pink Tees and Store Openings
It was another busy week in Insta-land, Shoppists. As per usual, Philadelphians were posting galore on Instagram with everything from breezy summer tunics, to giant flags for store openings, to unusual bracelet-ring combos (that we’re totally in love with and plan on buying immediately). Here, the 10 pics that made the cut for this week’s Instagram roundup. Happy Friday, Shoppists!
We all knew Bradley Cooper put on a few pounds for his latest role as an SEAL agent in American Sniper, but who knew he’d take to wearing daisy dukes to show off his new physique? Okay, maybe it’s not a thing as much as it is a day on the set, but it’s fun to look at, nonetheless.
To the left is a screenshot of some photos Instinct posted. What do you think? Can he pull off the short-shorts look or should he leave the skimpy-clothes-wearing to Suki?
Confession time: I have really bad taste in movies. Like, really bad. I adore rom coms and when I find a movie that I like, I’ll keep it in rotation for months. But what I lack in cinematic eye, I make up for with my ability to pick out the most aesthetically pleasing movies out there. Hey, they might not all be Oscar winners (some are!), but they’re definitely the most fashion-forward movies available on Netflix Instant Watch. Now, go grab some popcorn and veg out; there are about 22 hours of movies to watch here.
Today’s hilariously fun fashion tip: Follow this Instagram account right now. Go on, don’t ask questions. Just do it.
Done? Okay, here’s the backstory: Willie is a Jack Russell terrier dreamed up by Alex Stadler, the quirky artist/author/designer and owner of Sansom Street shop stadler-Kahn. Willie’s closet could rival even the most fabulous of fashionistas—she pumps iron in Galliano, she jogs in Manolos, she adopts kittens in Tsumori Chisato. Alex’s sketches (which you might remember from the walls of Joan Shepp some years back) are some of my favorite things ever; I’m desperate for him to start making Willie note cards, framed prints, playing cards, t-shirts and bags. (Note: Canvas bags featuring Willie sketches are coming to stadler-Kahn soon!) For now, though, you’ll have to whet your Willie appetite with her new (and downright fabulous) social media presence: Willie’s got her own Instagram, @whatwilliewore. Click here for some of my favorite posts so far. Enjoy!
Philly gay-owned clothing company TatteeBoy just released its first full-length music video, an ultra-sexy short film showcasing some of its newest looks for the season. The clothes are great and all, but it’s the model in the video, personal trailer Joe Soussa, that’s got me all blush-faced.
Check out the video below to watch him dress up, then dress down, then — thank goodness — dress down a few more times. Word of caution: This may be NSFW for some workplaces, and watch your eyes, because an ab or two may pop out and poke you in the face.
Summer is at our doorstep. Those long, hot days sunning by the pool, romantic evening strolls along Rehoboth Beach, and most importantly a string of steamy summer flings. One thing stands between you and all that amazingness, though. It’s one of the year’s biggest conundrums — at least if you’re a gay man: What kind of swimsuit and I going to wear?!

The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s 58th annual Daisy Day Luncheon and Fashion Show raised more than $1.6 million to support CHOP’s Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment.
Nearly 800 people attended the event, which started with a active cocktail party, as well as bidding on an extensive silent auction which included many of today’s hot fashion items like an Alexander McQueen clutch and scarf, a Zac Posen Eartha Bag, and a Judith Lieber Clutch. There were also trips, experiences and sports memorabilia to bid on. Then there were the live auction items: Jeff Hammond worked his magic and raised more than $50,000 helped by two winning bids on the “Eagles Insider” experience: $12,000 each. Four tickets to a game of your choice, free parking, and pre-game field passes. The winners also received 4 personalized replica jerseys.
This year’s fashion show, presented by Saks Fifth Avenue, featured Zac Posen’s Fall 2014 Collection. Nancy A. Wolfson celebrated her 16th consecutive year as chair of Daisy Day, raising over $17 million during this period. This year’s honorary co-chairs were Mary and Jed Kelly, parents of 7-year-old Addison Kelly, who underwent a rare lifesaving surgery before birth to remove a tumor from her chest.
