As I reflect on the last 10 plus (!!!) years working at The Style Spy, as cliched as it may sound, such endings can only be described as bittersweet. When I first met Erica in 2007 at a local coffee shop to discuss writing for The Style Spy, what I assumed would just be a quick meet and greet (you know, just to make sure I wasnâ€™t weird) turned into a 2+ hour discussion about our love for shopping and fashion.
A string of pearls, a pair of pearl earrings — pearls are a forever classic. But if pearls feel a little too Betty Draper for your cooler-than-school sensibility, youâ€™re in luck. These elegant baubles are taking a prominent place on casual slides and party heels, and are also finding new life as accents on jacket collars and sleeve cuffs.Â Graceful and feminine, pearls are no longer just reserved for ladies who lunch. Here are my favorite ways to rock this classic in more modern ways.
We’ve all heard the old adage for the bride-to-be: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. The first three are often easy to fulfill, but it’s often the ‘something blue’ part that gets rather tricky. And frankly, the something blue — symbolizing purity, love and fidelity — seems like a big deal! For the traditionalists, here are some subtle and not-so-subtle ways to incorporate something blue on your wedding day.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
