And if you love fashion and have more clothes than you can count, chances are there’s not enough space in your closet to house them all.

If this sounds like you, then extra storage space is crucial. We’re not talking the kind of space where you store your pieces in boxes until you’re ready to move, we’re talking bespoke,…

All you have to do is shimmy into the garment, and voilà: You have a smoother, leaner-looking silhouette—instantly. The only downside: It can be quite uncomfortable if you plan on staying in the undercover garment for hours on end (breathing is overrated, anyways).

    Richard Shotwell/Invision/AP; Courtesy Kaley Cuoco The last time Kaley Cuoco Sweeting sported a bob on her Instagram, it was a major fakeout (though that certainly didn’t stop us from doing a double-take). Now the Big Bang Theory star has done it again, posting another shot of herself with a short, tousled crop — but this time, it’s the real deal. (Maybe that faux bob was just a trial run?) “We did it @clsymonds ! Now let’s get some color shall we ? @andylecomptesalon,” she posted along with the photo of the cut (above), an angled, wavy bob with long bangs.

Because pretty much everyone seemed to have gotten the same memo: Bare skin creatively in a monochromatic ensemble.

    INF (2) Jada Pinkett Smith loves to change up her hair. She’s gone from a half-shaved head style, to a chic asymmetrical lob to her latest look: a cute pixie cut! The actress transformed her long tresses into a super-short cut. Smith left the L.A. airport sporting her sun-kissed crop with a hat over it. Something tells us this won’t be a permanent style. But with her face structure she can pull off practically anything (like the aforementioned half-shaved head) and we’d love to see how she styles a shorter cut on the red carpet.

    To piggyback on my last post about footwear for the narrow-footed, I've found five closed-toe options: four in light hues for spring and one in classic black. Of course these come in wides too! 1. Sperry Angelfish: Did you know Sperrys come in widths? There's medium, wide and slim. Slim! What, was "narrow" offensive in some way? Anyway, the Angelfish is a feminine twist on the classic Sperry Topsider. The color featured above is called "pink perf." $90 at SperryTopsider.com. 2. Blondo Begonia: I like the Alegria Pesca fisherman sandal, but it is very clunky and doesn't fit a narrow foot well.

    16 Apr 2014 | 6:59 pm
    I love what my friend Jessica Turner from The Mom Creative is doing with Throwback Thursday… she’s asking people to share the story behind the Throwback Thursday photos. Every photo tells a story, but many times… we don’t know the true, real story behind a beautiful photo. There are all different kinds of stories – some happy, some sad, some meaningful, some powerful. There is power in sharing the story because it allows that photo to live in a completely different way. Today I’m sharing a Throwback Thursday photo from April 2006. I took the boys to get a…

    23 Apr 2014 | 2:15 pm
    It takes a true betch to wear a graphic tee with a hashtag on it. It takes a true betch to ironically wear a cotton top that's supposedly "Dry Clean Only." It takes a true betch to ditch the chambray blouse for a T-shirt that says something that you probably posted on Twitter while waiting in line for your mocha Frappuccino. But betch or not, these graphic tees are meant to make you chuckle. And it's your duty to wear them with as much pride as you would with your sorority hoodie.

    Okay, so we know that nearly every bride has a wedding website these days. But think about it: most are drab and devoid of any useful information.

    If you have no boobs or really small boobs, this post is for you. It's a serious struggle that most people just don't understand. Clothes and bras never fit right or look normal, bras that fit are impossible to find, and we get mistaken for children all the time. Ever been told that you were a part of the "Itty Bitty Titty Committee?" I have. (Insert eye roll here.) But desipite troubles and the harsh words and jokes we recieve, our "boobed" friends think that we have it soooo easy and they claim to be  "jealous" of us. But let's be honest...they aren't.

    When we showed you a slew of slide sandals to choose from as one of your top summer sandals, we included a huge range of finds from high-end designer to super affordable.

In today's edition, can you tell which gold bar slide sandal costs over $800? Answer: The sandal on the right is Chloé Embellished Neoprene Slides ($840) and the sandal on the left is Jeffrey…

    What girl doesn't love a moto jacket? There's just something about it (the cut? the fit?) that makes a chick look hella cool, like Jessica Alba and Emma Watson. But even more than just looking good, moto jackets are the perfect layering piece for in-between weather. You know what we're talking about, cold mornings turning into hot afternoons (aka, spring). And as if you needed any more proof as to why you need one of these, designers like Rebecca Taylor, Herve Leger and Richard Chai all sent moto jacktes down the runway for Spring 2014.

Telling the story of a kid who rose from  poverty in Hampton, Virginia, to one of the sports’ greatest success stories and an eleven-time NBA All-Star, the film is largely told in Iverson’s own words and is from first-time director Zatella Beatty.

    April 24, 2013 was a horrifying day in fashion history. The catastrophic events of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh have sparked a momentous movement a year later. That day is now known as Fashion Revolution Day. More than 1,100 garment workers—a third of those who entered the clothing factories that morning in Bangladesh—died in the collapse of the massive eight-story building. Ordered to come to work despite the warnings that cracks found in the building the day before could lead to an imminent collapse, the fashion industry demands flew in the face of safety, and the factory…

  • Jamie xx : Girl

    Alexander Tzenkov
    23 Apr 2014 | 10:49 am
      Some more magic from beat wizard Jamie xx emerged today. The track entitled “Girl” which will be released on his forthcoming 12″ via XL may not be your orthodox “hit” but nonetheless it is very characteristic Jamie, just straying a bit from the off-beat step that he usually puts one forward with, and as usual there is no limit to how many times you can play it. Something that in my books is perhaps more valuable to music in the long run than a clear cut hit. Check out the accompanying video as well below for some minimal glitchy expressions of…

    Wearing: Drawstring Shirt Dress: Aritzia • Brown pumps • Schutz • Grey Handbag: Proenza Schouler • Grey Sunglasses: Super   Sometimes old news is good news. You see this dress? Not only is it a form of leopard print.  It’s a dress I’ve had for a long time, well, three years.  Funnily enough I’m also wearing the same sunglasses. Why is this such good news you ask? Last year I had a baby and during the pregnancy, I had gained 57 pounds (doctors suggest gaining 35 pounds maximum). It was hard for me, not just because of the weight, but also because the weight…

    Many years ago, my husband and I were at the Vintage Fashion Expo, and while there I thought I would get the “perfect” leopard print coat. You know, that vintage leopard print coat every woman should have in her wardrobe. As I pulled out a leopard print coat which I thought would be the “one” my husband put his hand on my arm, and said, “Nooooooooo. Not that coat.” Not that coat? Was it too long? Did it look like an old stuffed animal? Did is smell funny? I asked him why, and he said it was tacky. Why was it tacky? He replied, “I don’t like…
  • 7 Fashion Icons & Their Uniforms

    jennine
    17 Apr 2014 | 12:35 pm
    In the fashion industry, where wearing the same thing twice is a major faux pas some of the most iconic fashion elite have gone the way of wearing their own uniform. Uniforms: they represent sameness, belonging to a greater whole. Yet, the people who have created their own uniform and committed to it are some of the most colorful and eccentric people. Steve Jobs had his hundred Issey Miyake turtlenecks. I had heard somewhere that Hillary Clinton wore pantsuits during her 2008 campaign so people would stop asking what she was wearing and listen to what she was saying. In the fashion…

Beauty issues have been making waves on the internet the past few weeks. What makes us beautiful? What is beautiful? Well, those are some pretty heavy questions and perhaps the answer cliche as it is, you know, coming from within… That “within” also encompasses self-care and self love.

    When musician Imogen Heap performs, she spends a significant portion of it not making music but zooming between instruments and the tech that controls them. "I wanted to create something where I could manipulate my computer on the move wirelessly so that music becomes more like a dance than a robotic act like pressing a button or moving a fader," she explains. Starting about seven years ago, she began attaching lapel microphones to her wrists so she could make sound with wine glasses and not have to schlep microphones on tour or at festivals, cutting down on the hassle, weight and transport…

From the farmers who grow the cotton to the army of labor that cuts and sews everything piece-meal, assembing it yet someplace else, the supply chain is monolithic, faceless and industrial. "We have lost the connection with the clothes that we wear, so we thought it was important to make this first day about transparency and connections," explain the fashionable folk behind the first ever Fashion Revolution Day on April 24, 2014.

  • Weekly Roundup: Sandals

    Angie
    23 Apr 2014 | 12:05 pm
    This is the first of many sandal roundups I’ll be doing this season, because although I don’t wear sandals, they are popular with my clients and our forum members. Here’s an assortment of casual and dressy styles across a variety of heel heights.  Charles David Bailey Pointy Toe Flat: Technically not a sandal because of the closed toe, but still pretty open and breezy. Delicious with the trendy ankle strap. It works well on higher volume feet — as most sandals do — and is buttery soft and quite elegant. The small heel is more supportive than a completely flat heel. I…
  • How to Wear Floral Patterns in Subtle Ways

    Angie
    23 Apr 2014 | 3:54 am
    I’ve found that floral patterns evoke a myriad of emotions with my clientele. Some wear them frequently as the focal point of an outfit. Others won’t wear them at all because they’re too twee, precious or frivolous. Some will wear them casually over the weekend, but not to work. And many will wear a very specific floral pattern in a more subtle way. It’s the subtle ways that I’m going to run through here because they might tickle your fancy for Spring and Summer dressing.   1. Use Florals As a Layering Piece The floral top on the left is layered under a topper on the right, so that…
  • A Striped Midi for Spring

    Angie
    22 Apr 2014 | 3:43 am
    This outfit is almost an exact replica of the modern midi ensemble. I’ve worn it twice in the last few weeks: once on a mild Seattle Spring day while out shopping with a client, and once to host a dinner party in our home (leaving off the jacket). The happiness factor here is very high because I LOVE to wear midi skirts that move. There’s something about the way they swoosh from side to side as you stride that puts me in a jolly good mood. And they remind me of my late Mum. Comfortable, ladylike and graphic.  I saw the black and cream Halogen striped skirt back in February and it was…

    You are on Team Pack if you prefer planning your outfits and packing your suitcase for a trip. You are on Team Unpack if you prefer unpacking your suitcase when you’re back at home.  I am on Team Unpack without a shadow of a doubt. I MUCH prefer unpacking our suitcases when we’re back home because it’s fast and requires little thought. Most of our clothes need to be laundered after a trip, which conveniently pops them into the “washing pile”. Clean clothes either go back into our closet or on the ironing pile. I put away our shoes and toiletries in a flash, and happily unpack a…
  • New Blouse: Upscale Silk Sweatshirt

    21 Apr 2014 | 4:16 am
    The upscale silk sweatshirt is what I call the modern pull-on blouse. The mixed media darling marries the Sporty Luxe trend with the bumper Knitwear trend, creating an elegantly relaxed look. It’s an interesting hybrid of dressy and casual and is as comfy as can be in a fashionably fluid or oversized fit. In true sweatshirt style, it’s frequently designed with magical raglan sleeves that can make wider shoulders seem more narrow and narrow shoulders seem more wide.  We saw it come through last year and it’s gaining momentum as variations of the concept hit stores in an assortment…

    From the New York Times- Gabriel García Márquez, the Colombian novelist whose “One Hundred Years of Solitude” established him as a giant of 20th-century literature, died Thursday at his home in Mexico City. He was 87. His death was confirmed by Cristóbal Pera, his former editor at Random House. García Márquez, who received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982, wrote fiction rooted in a mythical Latin American landscape of his own creation, but his appeal was universal. His books were translated into dozens of languages. He was among a select roster of canonical writers –…

    From The Guardian- The way to beat Vladimir Putin is to flood the European market with fracked-in-the-USA natural gas, or so the industry would have us believe. As part of escalating anti-Russian hysteria, two bills have been introduced into the U.S. Congress that attempt to fast-track liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports, all in the name of helping Europe to wean itself from Putin’s fossil fuels and enhancing U.S. national security. According to Cory Gardner, the Republican Congressman from Colorado who introduced the bill in the House of Representatives, “Opposing this legislation is…

    I love myself a good espadrille but I am not ready to shell out over $600 for Chanel's logo emblazoned one. Espadrilles in my mind aren't meant to last forever. I of course can't ignore the cool look of leather mixed with the jute rope and recently on a shoe excursion to Nordstrom found these Kendall & Kylie Madden Girl Poppyy Espadrille Flats ($49.95 at Nordstrom). I told the SA I couldn't believe I was buying Kendall & Kylie shoes and she laughed and whispered, "It's ok. I am over 30 and I have a pair too! They are the best and way cheaper than Chanel." This I had to agree. After…

    23 Apr 2014 | 1:01 pm
    Spring finally feels like it's here, which means I can barely contain my excitement for shorts weather. Shorts are one of my favorite items of clothing on a casual day but aren't always appropriate for every occasion. Enter long shorts: the spring 2014 trend that has officially solved my dilemma of shorts for every time of day: work, date, or even evening. I tend to buy shorts oversize, so they sit low and aren't too revealing (unlike Beyonce's Cochella pair!), but they still fall on the short end of the spectrum. The three designers below, though, have had me praying for warmer weather since…

    Lindsay Ginn

    If we remember the internet for one thing, it will probably be fandoms. Sites like Tumblr, Pinterest – even just Google Image search allows us to obsessively drool over whatever delectable mind-morsel we last thought about, or the last TV show we marathoned, or the last pair of shoes we saw on Lupita Nyong’O. It’s immediate satiation in its purest form. It’s black tar instant gratification, and it targets those of us who willingly fixate on whatever shiny item has out attention.

    Since 2014 seems to be the Year of Contemporary Pop Music Appreciation for me, I’m just going to roll with it. That means that I definitely allowed myself to rock out and sing along to “I Think I Like You,” the first single from Kat Ostenberg and Skylar Stonestreet, the duo behind new pop group, SIREN. There have been no fewer than one billion comparisons to female pop group Tegan and Sara, many of which I assume are made once the author has seen that there are two women in a band together. (So they’re also gay, right?) I tend to get less of an indie girl band vibe…

    Berlin is not only great for its vibrant local music scene, but benefits from touring bands from all over the world bringing inspiring new music styles to the capital. This week’s music recommendation from our side is Pooma. They are a Finnish band who specialised in putting a dark twist on pop music. Inspired by the movie director David Lynch who’s famous for The Elephant Man, Twin Peaks and Mullholland Drive and his surreal aesthetic they got some impressive visuals as well that you can enjoy after the jump.

I sauntered across streets and through parks, meeting hyperactive dogs and interesting characters along the way. But when I encountered this row of blooming trees, I had to stop and take photos. I say “stop and take photos”. What I actually mean is “stop, climb up on a gate, then climb up into the tree, to take photos”. This is my favourite time of year. Do you love it as much as I do?

    Seeing it's been, oh I don't know, almost a YEAR since my last post, it seemed like it was high time I said hello already.It would probably be smart of me to officially "retire", but I just can't bring myself to do it. (Even when I'm embarrassingly only delivering annual posts.) There's a little part of me that says, "yeah, I need a redesign, and yeah, I have no free time these days, but maybe just maybe I'll find some and pick up blogging again." I miss it. I miss YOU. Of course, you can always find me around the interwebs:Like on the Twitter (prob'ly my favorite social platform);and the…
  • {Sneak Peek} Inside my Apartment

    15 May 2013 | 7:41 am
    I've been busy lately, especially with moving from my (tiny) Manhattan apartment to my (tiny, but cheaper) Brooklyn apartment. For someone with a closet as big as mine, this is not a small undertaking. On the upside: A new place to decorate! It's still kind of a mess, but I managed to capture a few snippets so you could see how it's taking shape. A full apartment tour to come when I get my act together (i.e., clean this place up and maybe even do the dishes). Let's start here. Brass chandelier, spraypainted blue and hung in the living room: I'm obsessed with dinosaurs lately (you'll see).

    The Frisky
    23 Apr 2014 | 4:05 pm
    The champagne toast is one of my favorite customs. I’m all about celebrating happy moments with sparkly wine, so hey, what’s not to love? But lately I’ve been thinking that the traditional requirements for what constitutes a champagne-worthy moment are way too predictable (not to mention way too rare). Major milestones like engagements, weddings, buying a house, having a baby, or getting a promotion certainly deserve a toast, but what about the less obvious occasions that may or may not be life-changing, but sure as hell feel like it at the time?

    Sarah Jessica Parker really seems to love the overall trend! Just last month she was spotted wearing a pair of Black Orchid overalls and this time switched it up for a pair from Current/Elliott. She chose the Ranchhand Overalls in Wanderer which are a bit slouchier and have a bit of distressing. She paired them with a pair of wedge sneakers and a slouchy Henley shirt.

I wonder if they were on a vacation or filming for their reality show? Kendall wore a pair of light wash distressed jeans with a plaid Paige flannel shirt and black Converse sneakers. I love how these have a really light, pale blue wash. The distressing also looks like she has broken them in a bit and they’ve continued to get more destroyed with wear.

  • Adele Simpson Ensemble - 1964

    23 Apr 2014 | 3:50 am
    You know I love Bergdorf ads.  But it's the outfit here that catches my imagination.  From 1964, the Adele Simpson rayon sheath dress with interesting seaming is set off with a matching capelet.  The cape was lined in contrasting silk and the set came with a leather tie belt in the same color as the cape lining.  The color combinations were wonderful: navy with vivid green lining and belt, sea green with turquoise, gold nugget with black or black with gold nugget.  The set sold for $160 in 1964 (about $1220 in today's dollar.)Which color would you choose?

    In a world of endless noise on the internet and outside I found myself lost in this calm photo series, Patience by Josef Hoflehner. Silence, secluded and empty spaces are the main themes of the body of work which was shot from 2006-2013. He chose unique locations as examples of the dynamic between man-made and the natural world, as well as total absence of humanity. I just love it. Don’t you? Keep getting lost in his work here and after the jump. Source and photos: Trendland & Josef Hoflehner The post Patience by Josef Hoflehner appeared first on because im addicted.

    I’ve always been in awe of people who could find a beat up piece of furniture and turn it into something really great. One of which is my insanely talented girlfriend, Sayre Ziskin aka SVZ Interior Design. In honor of Earth Day, we teamed to make a LEAF video about renewing and reusing furniture by taking a sad little beat up side table and making it anew.  The results knocked my socks off! Watch the video to learn how to do it yourself in just 10 steps. Hope you enjoy! DIY: Refurbish Furniture 1. Pick a price of furniture that’s still in-tact that needs some TLC. 2. With a mouse…

    Fashion Staple Used: Silk Cami Recently, I’ve been very into coral and mint. I love how the icy pastel cools down the vivid bright. So I did a little colorblocking for our last night staying at the Hyatt Regency Maui. I first tried out the jogger pant when shooting my A is for Athletic episode and have fallen in love with the easy draping of the bottom. Side slits allow you to show off a cool pair of heels, and a statement necklace brought new life to my cami. Today we went island jumping to Honolulu. But if you’re heading to Maui, here is a quick recap of my faves: Mama’s…

    Fashion Staple Used: Silk Cami Last week, my boyfriend surprised me with a last minute vacay to Hawaii (I know, best bf ever!). And when I say last minute, I mean I literally had 5 hours to pack, get my nails done and make it to the airport. I usually lay out my outfits before a trip. But with no time I stuck to my favorite classic staples. I have this silk cami in almost every color and thought the spearmint pastel was perfect for Easter weekend. This morning, I paired it with a pastel skirt to go to church in Lahaina. Wedges kept me comfy as we walked around town and easily slipped off…

A skirt was a no-brainer. I felt like I was on an episode of Project Runway as I filled my balcony with…

    Dry Cleaning Tips Living in New York means one thing is incredibly hard to come by…SPACE. And if you love fashion and have more clothes than you can count, chances are there’s not enough space in your closet to house them all. Or you’ve stuffed them into your closet and other random spaces throughout your apartment so tightly, that you can barely see what you’ve got! If this sounds like you, then extra storage space is crucial. We’re not talking the kind of space where you store your pieces in boxes until you’re ready to move, we’re talking bespoke,…

The only dry cleaning process recommended by the US EPA as safe; liquid co2 is the same gas used to carbonate beverages such as soda and champagne. ‘Green Earth’ is another ‘green’ cleaning method, and uses liquid silicone, but is not…

    Coachella is no longer about the music. Instead, it’s basically grown into one giant, overwhelming orgy of lights, art, food and dust that explodes in an eruption of teenage molly takers and rich LA girls every year for two weekends in the California desert. Part of that orgy is all about fashion and every year style mags make a big fuss about what people wore at Coachella. The only problem is, everyone wears the same thing.

While most things have changed between the time of VHS versions of Snow White and now, we'll admit we're still passing judgment on the fictitious wardrobes of storybook characters. But, in our defense, they've seriously stepped it up. In a series of drawings by the artist…

    With the release of The Mr. Michael Hurley Collection today, its safe to say that I am a little on edge. Primarily studying womenswear as a fashion student at Kent State University, the menswear projects weren’t exactly something I looked forward to each semester. Although my design aesthetic always had somewhat of a masculine look to it, I never really put a lot of thought into actually going into menswear. With NEXT being a menswear driven company, when we decided to start developing some of our own in house brands, I thought “how hard could it be?”…Well it turned…

However just as loud as stripes and polka-dots are, a single suit shouting out magenta or bright blue can make just as loud of a statement. All one color, and one hell of an outfit…well, make that two outfits. Which are you, pink or blue?

Whether you have friends and loved ones tying the knot in a gorgeous spring wedding or have a long list of summer weddings ahead of you, it’s time to dust off those flowy dresses and hunt down the perfect nude heels.

Of course, this called for several trips to Union Square and many nights spent online shopping. While I fell in love…

    Coachella is no longer about the music. Instead, it’s basically grown into one giant, overwhelming orgy of lights, art, food and dust that explodes in an eruption of teenage molly takers and rich LA girls every year for two weekends in the California desert. Part of that orgy is all about fashion and every year style mags make a big fuss about what people wore at Coachella. The only problem is, everyone wears the same thing. There’s basically 9 categories of outfits and they’re all insane and shouldn’t be duplicated upon returning to normal, sane society. Click through…

    I hadn’t realised it was Spring until I had to move my clock forward a couple of days ago. If you live in the northern hemisphere you know what I’m talking about: getting to 7 PM with still plenty of light is such a relief! You feel like the day is not over and you still have a ton of energy to do things! The downside is that I’m never sleepy these days, but this also could be an upside. More time to be awesome! ;D Spring is wonderful, flowers, sun, green, lollipops and yada yada but it can also be very fatiguing for our bodies and minds. How to embrace spring as a…

    Fashion illustrations might easily be the best thing about fashion whatsoever. Ok, this might be my opinion, but how else could you create such a wonderful, colourful and magical world? If you’re Tim Walker you may have the means to make that magical world “real”, but it usually doesn’t happen. In fashion illustration it happens all the time. Most often than not fashion illustrators are fashion designers themselves, depicting their own collections and ideas. But fashion illustration is a career on its own, and I absolutely love discovering emerging fashion illustrators…

What would it be of that big community of bright meteors that now inhabit the blogosphere, the Twitter Lands, the Facebook Realm and the Instagram Castles? I remember when I was a young lady, trying to find my place in the world. I loved colours, bows, pink, big shoes and Japanese comics. I almost didn’t know where to look for like minded people and the only place where I felt ok was the comic convention in my city. Four days a year were a poor deal to feel part of something…

    A couple weeks ago, I had a hour of time to myself. King was at school, Chris was at work and Harlow was attending an hour long class. I was out in public, hungry and totally alone. I decided to go for a bite to eat, I didn’t realize until I sat down that it was in fact the first time I have ever eaten in a restaurant, alone. It was relaxing and enjoyable, heck I even ate the eggs while they were still hot! I realized how absolutely ridiculous it was that it took me having zero alone time (ZERO), to actually enjoy being alone. Before kids, I never in my hungriest would have sat down in…

    Let’s just preface this, by saying there is probably no such thing as true yoga essentials. If you want to practice yoga, you could in all honesty practice naked on your hardwood floor, zero gear required – BUT the right clothes (that make you feel comfortable), props and gear can make your practice just that much better. I wanted to share some of my personal practice changing items, and a few that I am coveting after doing a ton of research and testing. No 1.

    Harlow has hair like mine, always tons of wispy new growth pieces that don’t fit into the pony tail. But on her, it’s so cute – so cute that it deserves a sweet name like “baby hair”. When you’re all grown up, it’s probably not as cute and I know for a fact it’s pretty darn annoying. When it comes to wee Harlow’s hair, we have developed a little trick for keeping most of those short wispy pieces up in a high pony with the rest of her hair. If you can french braid, the upside down french braid (seemed like a good name) is the bee’s…

    Tilda Swinton, Tim Hiddleston, John Hurt and Mia Wasikowska star in the latest film from Jim Jarmusch. The tale of two centuries-old vampire lovers living in desolate areas, Detroit and Tangier, reuniting and rekindling their love at a time of growing depression at the state of humanity. Trying to bog down a Jarmusch film to its plot almost seems beside the point. The best Jarmusch films are about people and relationships. Such is the case in Jarmusch’s “Only Lovers Left Alive,“ a story about lovers lifting each other up at their most vulnerable and depressed. It’s a…

Part of defining your personal style is getting to know and understand the kinds of clothes you like best. Once you’ve done that, you’ll probably find that your taste corresponds to a personal style category. With a name for what you like, it’s much easier to narrow in on the kinds of garments to look for and where to find them. It also helps you identify a style idol or mentor to, ahem, borrow outfit…

    When your closet looks like a catalogue of the last several years (or more) of trends, creating an outfit can feel like building a puzzle from mismatched pieces! Putting outfits together is much easier when the clothes you own have a cohesive look to them, like they all belong together. You’ll find that shopping is easier when you’ve identified your personal style, too. Here’s how to bring some order to your closet chaos and discover a signature look. How to create your signature look Identify what you like. Are there pieces in your closet that you reach for over and over again? And not…

  • What to wear on a Caribbean cruise

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    8 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    Deciding what to pack for a Caribbean cruise is a special—and fun!—challenge. Not only is there limited space in your stateroom to stow luggage, but you have to bring clothes that will be appropriate for a variety of activities. Start by checking your cruise line’s website for suggested packing lists. My mom, who just returned from an 11-day Caribbean cruise, recommends packing in layers and bringing suitcases that can nest together. What to pack for a Caribbean cruise This cruise capsule wardrobe covers many of the bases for days poolside, oceanside or ashore. Use it as a starting…

    3 Apr 2014 | 4:00 am
    I took some time off after my daughter was born, but now I’m ready to re-enter the workforce. How do I transition my wardrobe back? Any kind of workforce re-entry can mean a wardrobe transition, especially if you’ve been spending most of your days in super casual new mama wear. How big the transition is depends on part on the dress code at your new workplace. If you’re doing a full 180 from jeans ‘n’ T-shirts to office wear, try this capsule wardrobe of career clothes basics. If you’re going back to a more casual workplace, you can build up your wardrobe gradually by mixing in a…

    22 Apr 2014 | 12:05 am
    A lovely set of stylised kids fashion photos from Babesta store today. The summer pastel pink shade of the background is very on key with the current trends and seems to suit all of the summer kids clothes this season, I remember seeing that pink in Scandinavia 2 years ago and it seemed very fresh at the time when neon and primaries were all around. The mix with mint and banana shades works well and even the ping of bright red doesn’t upset the eye the way you might imagine, great colour combinations and a cool photoshoot from Katrina Tang.

Prices start on Mini Rodini at €55 an there is also an adult set for older kids/teens at €75. The four main prints of the Mini Rodini bedding collection for kids and baby   Baby nursery…

    Andra Maier
    23 Apr 2014 | 10:27 am
    Platform shoes are something we use to get extra height and also to be more comfortable than with high heeled shoes. They can be either full platform, which is the sole of the shoe, or just platform in the front and high heel in the back. It is a known fact that platform shoes, ever since they were first invented, in Ancient Greece, were used to give extra height. But why this need to be taller?In Ancient Greece, they were mainly used to give height to theatre characters on the stage to be seen ether, but also, to build up on their importance.Because of the muck on the streets, in the 18th…

  • My favorite thing (from Goodwill): Wingback chair

    DC Goodwill Fashionista
    23 Apr 2014 | 6:17 am
    Meet my new chair! I finally found the perfect wingback chair for my tiny apartment! I had been searching for a chair for reading and lounging for months, and Mr. Fashionista had promised me one as a birthday gift as soon as the right one made itself apparent. I’m so glad the perfect chair for me was hanging out at DC Goodwill! I visited the South Dakota Avenue Goodwill store on Monday with one mission in mind: I needed to find a new coffee maker for my office. Our old one was on the fritz and I couldn’t bear to buy a new one when I could get a nearly-new one from Goodwill. I…

    22 Apr 2014 | 6:33 am
    Here’s another Good Buy that reflects our sunny, happy spring mood. It’s an ivory sleeveless dress by Whimsy dotted with a landscape of blue, pink, and yellow flowers. The hand-drawn appearance of the pattern is sweet and charming—and I suspect the wearer will be much the same. Featuring a v-neck front and deep-v back, you’ll just need a simply stunning necklace to finish off this look. The faux-wrap front is complemented by a pleated skirt. It’s sweet without being too twee! If you’re a size medium, you’ll want to get your hands on this springy look.
  • An Earth Day Challenge

    DC Goodwill Fashionista
    21 Apr 2014 | 6:15 am
    Earth Day brings along with it cheerful messages to reduce, reuse, and recycle. I think we’ve gotten pretty good at reusing (your DIYs totally prove that) and recycling. But what about reducing? As a kid of the 90s, the “more is more!” message was strong. The economy was pretty good and everything from toys to clothing was being produced overseas for cheap. If you could make it to a superstore, you could buy almost anything your heart desired. When the economy tanked a few years ago, the “less is more” message started to rise again, helped by projects like…

    I couldn’t help but compliment Deb’s layered look on Instagram earlier this week. I mean, weren’t we already thinking about layers? Deb, the voice behind DC style blog Real Girl Runway, responded, “The silk blouse is Talbots and it’s a Goodwill #thrift find!” Perfect! (That’s always my reaction, but let me be excited, okay?) I love the way that Deb mashed up soft colors here (gray goes with everything, but is especially lovely with her light blue blouse) and then added some tailored-and-tucked bling. It takes the ensemble from put-together to totally…

I have tried to replicate the pinned looks I’ve seen online and majority of the time, I found myself feeling like the Michelin Man: so many shirts, so lumpy, and so far from chic. I’ve made a concerted effort to really observe how other fashionistas are doing it and I think I’ve come up with a solid list of tips that will keep your layers polished and chic. 1.

    Time For Some Traffic Problems In Fart Lee (Nee Fort)If the bridge fits… “Time for some traffic problems in Fort Lee” reminds me of the “shot heard round the world”. The “shot” changed the course of history as it launched the American Revolution, and in the case of #Bridgegate, the “time for traffic” thing has changed the game of Chris Christie’s career, killing off his chances of ever becoming President of the United States. Although at his ”combative” press conference on Friday, he managed to squeeze out of his ass…

The law of the land in Uganda makes homosexuality a crime, punishable by life in prison. And that is the good news. The original bill was for gays to be put to death. Then you wonder why there is no Uganda Fashion Week. One can only imagine how hideous the interiors are in that country.

What I did for Lent, what I did for lent. Sorry, but to put fried food and Facebook in the same sentence of what to give up in order to purify your body and soul in preparation for the holy sacrament of whatever the fuck just sounds silly to me.

There is a saying in Hollywood that if you have a great script and throw it out of your car window onto the 405 Freeway, that it will still end up getting made. That from the head of Paramount Studios who would know, since she used to have the 405 scoured for great scripts by her lackies, I mean her executives. One cannot properly exist in Los Angeles without being able to say, “I am writing a screenplay”. It is practically illegal not to at least be able to say that you and a friend are “collaborating on a project”, something that…

Sure, she always looks  great in the movies and I can’t knock the style of Star Wars which has stayed looking futuristic for the last 35 years or so, but apart from that slave girl bikini she’s always dressed in white! So, I’ve gathered together some vintage gorgeousness, including this beautiful vintage silk kimono and some amazing two-tone Jil Sander boots. What do you think of Leia’s…

    I’ve never really ‘got’ the Clark Gable thing. I’ve watched Gone With The Wind without him leaving any particular impression on me but after watching Red Dust I get it. Maybe there’s something about a rough-and-ready Gable and the sultry heat of the jungle, both women in this movie certainly seem to think so! It’s not surprising that Gable and Harlow were paired together for six movies, their chemistry is sizzling, especially as this movie is pre-code so it’s a lot naughtier than it’s 1940s counterparts! And boy can you tell this movie is…

I just wanted to share how gorgeous they are (thanks Rach!). There’s an amazing 1940s cage handbag, which is gilt and has the mark ‘Gabriel Williams & Co. Inc. Bklyn1, N.Y. on the bottom. Also I had these beautiful soft ivory leather gloves, which I’m guessing are probably 1950s, (they’re so pretty!) and a lovely bold…

    There were some great movie actors around in the 1940s, it truly was the golden age of cinema! Here are my top 10 leading men of that decade – have I missed anyone crucial out? 1. Humphrey Bogart Bogart was ranked the greatest male movie star in history by the American Film Institute, and he made the majority of his movies during the 1940s. Major movies from this decade include the Maltese Falcon (1941), Casablanca (1942), To Have and Have Not (1944) and The Big Sleep (1946). Below: Bogart and Bergman from Casablanca 2.

  • Private Apartment by Ambience

    Vicky
    17 Apr 2014 | 12:00 am
    Private Apartment, in Clerkenwell, London, by Ambience leads us to imagine past eras of fans collecting vinyl records. Vinyl collectors still buy records despite the music medium shrinking and aging: is it better sound quality or old romance? The vinyl music medium hints at stories about its past, dreams and nostalgia for a pre-Internet age. In the age of digital music, music has become easily attainable. We discover music online comfortably and never stop learning about music. And while the resulting experience of legal music sampling is haunting and intoxicating, is the simple…
  • Private House by Found Associates

    10 Apr 2014 | 12:00 am
    I was raised by a highly trained, perfectionist, loving mother. With great enthusiasm, I admire the perfection of her precise, optimistic discipline. I struggled to fully assume the formalism of her methodical intellectualism in contrast with my messy, fluid, and irrational world as a kid. I imagine as the implication of my mother’s legacy, I began chasing the notion of aesthetic perfection as well as becoming obsessively attentive to detail. In my pursuit of creative perfection, my reflections evolved around what stayed in and what needed to be left out. Not…

    A white modernist cube might represent a space in which the outside world does not enter. Angus Morrogh-Rhyan and José Esteves de Matos of London studio, De Matos Ryan, built the Garden House as a private, enclosed outdoor space. The house’s graphic simplicity is comprised of a solid concrete volume resting slightly over the ground floor glass walls in Battersea, close to the River Thames, London. There is something delightful about a house built in a sunken setting at the bottom of a garden. The two-story house was built partly below ground to comply with a single-story house…

    Color is energy. When the color contrast is intensive, it can function as an energy transmitter. I admit to embrace Modernism’s favorite color, white with blind vigor. And yet, it is the playful spontaneity of color that sparks my attention. Color becomes fully functional at NTI Head Office, in Leiden, Holland by Rotterdam-based Liong Lie Architects. The office is a surprise. A vivid, NTI branded color range is stretched across the hard lines of white, open plan spaces of classrooms, call centers, and secluded, break out rooms for orientation. Each classroom features a different color…
  • Glass House by Philip Johnson

    Vicky
    20 Mar 2014 | 12:00 am
    The idea of transparency is that everything is completely open. Somehow displaying ourselves to others is perceived as being more authentic. Ultimately, I suppose we are unabashedly nosy. Architect Philip Johnson’s Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, was built in 1949 as a transparent space that stirs up excitement. A suburban home where Mr. Johnson could escape, freely operate and entertain as a cultural salon. Philip Johnson’s insatiably curious spirit embraced change. An icon of 20th-century architecture, the completely open glass and steel house broke modernism’s tradition of…

    We don’t know about you, but we have truly taken notice to the cuff trend this Spring. Whether they are bejeweled, adorned with interesting accents, or are simply an intricate adornment. Are cuff bracelets a little too WonderWoman for you? There are bracelets for every taste, ranging from 3-5 inch glam monsters, to sweet cuffs that are a beautiful accent. Cuff bracelets look best as a standalone statement piece, rather than sitting amongst a sea of jewelry. Subdue your surrounding jewelry. We suggest draping yourself with long chain necklaces, a cuff bracelet, and one or two rings.

  • Living the 80′s again through music

    Sophie
    23 Apr 2014 | 1:10 pm
    There is nothing quite like music to give you the feeling of nostalgia.  To me, the memories and emotions associated with listening to certain music is more effective than seeing photos or watching movies. Music from the 80′s has a very special place in my heart.  Certain 80′s tunes, I think of when I moved to the states way back in the late 80′s.  Instant nostalgia! You can only imagine what a huge culture shock that must have been to a little girl who barely spoke English.  One thing that has kept me happy and grounded in this strange land was, yes, music.  MTV and…

    I personally love sexy dresses that complement the body like this dress seen on Alessandra Ambrosio.  What a dress to flaunt your sexy back and legs! The ease of the fabric drapes so comfortably on the body.  I’m also fond of the long sleeves that perfectly balance the cutout and short length of the dress.  Let this be your staple for nights out – and be the best dressed at the club or party scene this spring, summer ~ and beyond! Alessandra paired her dress with pricey Louboutin’s Athena sandals, but I find these affordable heels (way cheaper!) just as striking.

Love the comfy fit that hugs the body just right to create a flattering silhouette. Its girlie style and the bright hue put me in the spring mood right away which was perfect for an outdoor event like wedding.  The dress appears to be in hot pink in the photo above but the color is much closer to coral-pink in person.  A pair of leopard print heels adds a kiss of glam.

  • The Document Clutch Trending Now

    Wiki Fashionista

    The document clutch is a great handbag trend picking up in summer. Not only is this oversized clutch a good accessory, its size adds dramatic style to simple outfits. We like being able to carry our things no matter where we are. Clutches that are only big enough to carry a stick of gum and a credit card may have their audience, but a girl on the go will require much more than that. A handbag has to at least be capable of holding a smart phone, credit cards and makeup essentials. This is a deal breaker. Also an additional shoulder strap is key to the versatility of this handbag.

    Coachella is arguably the chicest outdoor festival of the season, with celebrities flocking to hear their favorite artists and bringing their high style along for the waiting paparazzi. It makes sense: Coachella has become a sort of brand in and of itself, and it attracts major fashion brands like H&M, Lacoste and Opening Ceremony to host parties and mini-events at the festival. Major magazines like Nylon also host events at the festival that attract well-dressed guests. Looking good when you’re outdoors in the heat and the sun takes a little extra work, but you too can capture the…

Here are some of the most popular: - Hunter Boots launched an open-toed rain boot. Yes, you read that right. In the fictional press release, the company lauded the “latest in product innovation” as a replica of the original rain boot first introduced in 1955 but with a new focus on breathability. “This revolutionary design enables air flow to circulate from the opening at the toe, traveling along the foot bed to…

    Many people see a basketball shoe as more of a fashion statement than a functional piece of footwear. After all, the basketball shoe has risen to the pinnacle of style, with certain brands fetching high prices and creating a million dollar niche in the shoe market that was not previously possible. However, for those playing the game the right basketball shoe can make all the difference in a player’s performance. For these athletes, the brand can matter very little as they pay close attention to the function aspects that can make or break a player’s stride. There are several different…

This one is a fine example and a reminder to all of us internet shoppers that just because a dress is shown on a 5’10″ model like Vanessa doesn’t mean it’s her size. What’s hidden from the camera here are the pins and clips used by the stylist to make this dress with a 40″ bust look form-fitting on Vanessa’s much tinier frame.

    Coachella (Where and What)Hello Loves!   Some of the best fashion is definitely seen at Coachella Music and Arts Festival in Calif.Every year is gets better!  The festival's origins trace back to a 1993 concert that Pearl Jam performed at the Empire Polo Club while boycotting venues controlled by Ticketmaster. The show validated the site's viability for hosting large events, leading to the inaugural Coachella Festival being held in October 1999 over two days. After no event was held in 2000, the festival returned on an annual basis beginning in April 2001 as a…

    Good Day fine friends!   Is a new hair color or style just what you need to start the spring season?Or do you just need a deep conditioning and a good cut!   One thing to remember is to keep  hair healthy, soft and shiny.It creates a groomed and well maintained attitude when you pamper   a simple style to your crowning glory!Try a good deep conditioning and wrap for 30 minutes. Works wonders.  Drink lots and lots of water.   Also use protective spray to prevent damage from heat blow dryings and curling ironsEnjoy your Spring!

  • Los Angeles Visual Diary - Silver Lake & Echo Park

    23 Apr 2014 | 8:50 am
    When I am in town, I spend most of my time in Silver Lake (which is where I like to stay) and explore from there. This trip is no exception, although I am a little closer to the border with Echo Park. This isn't a bad thing at all, it means I get to spend more time staring at the fountain in the middle of Echo Park and it makes my playground just that much bigger.The view from my balcony, day and nightObligatory iced soy latte at IntelligentsiaYoga for catsI spend way too long smelling every single flower that's in my wayNew discovery: shop / artists collective Vlad The Retailer on Sunset…

    Starting my L.A. Visual Diary a week after getting here. That makes total sense. I am also starting it with a random day from our first week. I've kinda lost the plot while here, I am drifting from day to day, pretending I don't have to go back to London. That's nice, not having to think further than the next iced coffee (with soy milk and agave, of course). I took these photos Downtown, which isn't an area I often visit.

    I was idly browsing ASOS the other day (as I often do) when I randomly came across something that I really, really wasn't expecting to find. The item in question relates to something pretty niche, so bear with me while I try and explain it. There's a little known underground filmmaker called Kenneth Anger who between 1937 and 1980 made a series of bizarre, surreal art films. Nine of these films were grouped together to form a body of work referred to as the "Magick Lantern Cycle". Anger had an obsession with Aleister Crowley and the majority of these films deal with the occult, the films are…

    Sometimes, Walmart really surprises me and comes up with an amazing garment. That's totally the case with their No Boundaries Sweetheart Neckline Dress.Though the dress comes in a bunch of fun colors and patterns (the floral ones are adorable!), the black hue is my fave because it can literally be worn for any occasion.It's also very flattering on any body type. I'm not sure if it's the case with every dress, but I did see a couple that look like they've got removable straps for those of you who want the option. The cut is simply superb.

  • 5 Tips for Grant Research

    Amanda Keating
    17 Apr 2014 | 2:28 pm
    by Amanda KeatingIt’s easy to get excited about the prospect of grant funding : grants carry with them a certain amount of prestige and the assurance that your work is (at least somewhat) funded, not to mention the fact that, if a funder is willing to give you a grant, they respect your work. But as the saying goes, only fools rush in. Foundation funding is highly competitive, and usually grantmakers are very specific about what they will and will not fund - they might have regional priorities, budgetary restrictions, or stipulations about the type of art they’re interested in…

    Whenever I wear something yellow – or close to it at least (hellooo tan coloured bow-tie dress!) – the first place I want to photograph it is at this wall. It’s getting a little ridiculous, and my boyfriend, Barnaby, always makes sure to let me know. “Jo, are you sure you don’t want to go down to the waterfront to shoot this outfit?” “No, the wall is fine.” “But.. you must be getting bored of it by now?” “Uhh, it’s YELLOW!” This morning, I got up quick-smart, scooped my hair into a faux bob, painted my nails in the…

    Everyone has their basics. Sure, you might be a dedicated jeans gal, or maybe you like dressing all in black. Each to their own, right? That’s what I LOVE about clothing. You wear what you want, you feel good – it’s easy. My basics usually involve something a little silly, bold prints, and outfits that hopefully have an animal featured somewhere. So this sums it all up, really! A denim daisy pinafore (♥♥♥), my favourite Pepa Loves piece ever; this cat t-shirt, and these amazing Marilyn Monroe inspired flats by Loly in the Sky. I topped it all off with a boater hat I…

And it is so so SO good! This dress from Pepa Loves is one of my new favourites. Pointy collars are, well, the BEST, and the shape leaves plenty of room for all of the good stuff: ie. pizza, pasta, burgers, cronuts.. yep, the REALLY good stuff. We took these photos down by the Wellington boat sheds – a little area I’m just slightly obsessed with. Wouldn’t it be incredible…

I’d seen these bags everywhere on the internet, and I seriously just could not understand how they work. 2D but 3D?! Argh, too much for my poor wee head to handle! Thankfully now I actually own one, so I can hold it in my hands, flip it upside down, back-to-front, and look at it really closely – so I’m beginning to make sense of this whole flat-but-3D thing!

Developed by Crytek, the makers of Far Cry and Crysis began this long journey from a game initially called Kingdoms. Intended to be a Kinect game at first, Ryse: Son of Rome back then was imagined to be the melee game that the Xbox 360 library needed early on. As time lagged on and on, the team eventually abandoned the motion controls of the Kinect and developed what is known today as one of the most cinematic and visually impressive launch games on the Xbox One.With beautiful games…

Do you dress for the job you want or the job you have? Are your shoes made for walking or climbing the ladder of success? Well, you know upward mobility is always on the mind of an avid blogger. This week we take the plunge into Spring and Summer trends, but not in the way of dressing down but more buttoning up. Does that mean we have work on the mind? Maybe.

    i have a confession to make. i'm kinda cheap. not in a sense that i would never buy drinks for my friends, treat them with chocolates and ice cream, not spoil myself with a good meal or a weekend trip but i never spend huge amounts on clothes, shoes and accessories. especially when i can get a better deal not buying an original. sounds terrible, right?it was like that with converse all stars. i always bought a cheap 10€ look-alike that only lasted a season if only there weren't too many festivals and crazy nights out. it was pretty much same with aviator sunglasses. every season i buy my…

    Since 2NE1 filmed the MV for “Happy” way back in 2012, it is expected that the styles worn by the girls are old as well. However, during one point in the video, 2NE1 wears pieces that were throwbacks even in 2012! When Jeremy Scott makes a cameo appearance in the “Happy” video, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the members donned items from their designer friend. What is quite shocking is that 2NE1 is decked out in styles from Jeremy Scott’s Fall 2007 collection! By the time the MV was released, their looks were a whopping 7 years old, but the bright colors…

    I always thought of myself more as a heels person, but as of lately, with all this athletic trend happening and the invasion of sneakers of all sorts, slip-ons & any possible flat shoe you can think of, my self perception is rather distorted or just left to theory, as I find myself more often then not, going for the comfy casual cool shoe rather than the glam sky high heels. Hm. Also the stupid age thing maybe. Although never ever on a night out or on those sexy as fuck days we all need to have. 2014 Spring & Summer seem to be all about shoes I swear, and that my friend, I LOVE. More…

No. I’m not gonna go all fashion proper on you right now. Having said that, if you’re planning on going full monty at this year’s Easter lunch/dinner thing, by all means, do so.

    When in doubt, practice what you preach. That’s what I thought when I was gifted by Persunmall with this amazing floral bomber jacket and super stylish striped blouse, and I found myself asking the ever daunting question of “How should I wear them?” ‘Question no more’, cried the fashion schizophrenic inside my head, ‘and just do the very first thing that pops into your mind’. Ha! I’d wear them both, at the same time. Both are trendy. Both I adore. Both are rocked separately and together by sartorial lovers all over the world wide web. And so I…

    Bra tops, ankle boots, sneakers, tropical prints, crop tops, hats, body jewellery, tousled hair and messy braids, weave knits, black, white, and nude outfits, long vests, lace, fringes, backpacks, tiny bags and fanny packs. Fuck me. It’s like the all year around existing trends had a conference and decided to meet up in the desert at Coachella. And they brought some new cool (once un-cool) kids to the party, like fanny packs?!! Massive ring noses (Kendall Jenner I’m looking at you). Off the shoulder tops and whatever was 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, and 90′s cool,…

Or can you?! Can we have a ridiculously delicious dish of spaghetti and wear spaghetti straps as well? You know, those thin straps that look incredibly feminine and are ’90′s reminiscent on all possible cami styles whether tops or dresses? And more often than not requite skinny arms? Yeah. Those are the spaghetti suckers we’re talking about today. So if spaghetti straps are only thin…

    One summer in college, my aunt took me to Country Thunder for my birthday. If you don’t know, Country Thunder is basically Coachella for country music lovers…in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin. Brooks & Dunn, Rascal Flatts, and a few more I can’t remember now, because I’m hideously, horribly old.

    22 Apr 2014 | 4:30 am
    For the last several years, I’ve been working from a wall in my living room (NYC apartment rents and a start-up entrepreneur’s salary do not a 2-BR make…). At first, the setup was merely part-time as I continued to hold down “real” jobs at real offices while trying to grow Style Girlfriend into the world-dominating enterprise that it is today. But when I made the leap to full-time on SG last year (a year this month actually! April is my work-iversary!), I knew something had to change. My bland work area and barely serviceable ladder bookshelf/desk combo no longer cut it.

Not that smoking meats and large prep areas and a new dishwasher aren’t worth splurging on. For me, it’s bags, coats, jeans, and shoes. Here’s why: BAGS I carry my life in my bag, and a less-than-stellar tote will show the wear and tear of that responsibility fast. Like, reality show relationship-fast.

Obviously. Whether you’re headed to Sears, Easter service, or simply a…

I know that won’t be happening anytime soon though, so in the meantime, I have this iPhone case to gaze at courtesy of Zero Gravity. (They have no shortage of awesome cases with different designs, and not just for iPhones, for all sorts of electronics!) I know it’s not exactly the same thing, but the picture sure does capture just how magical and romantic Paris is. And I love that it’s right on my phone, where I can see it everyday.

    [romper: vintage nicole miller shoes: leifsdottir hat: topshop bag: alexander wang jewels: jennifer meyer] I’ve always loved rompers. They’re comfortable, playful, easy—everything. I’ve had this vintage one for years and I always seem to go back to it. I love the stripes and black flowy bottom, it feels casual but can easily be dressed up for going out. I’ve worn it with a leather jacket, a denim one, you name it. And every time, it always feels fresh (probably one of the reasons I’ve held onto it for so long).

How crazy is that? It didn’t feel right to wear it during the winter, but now that it’s spring and the weather is heating up, it only seemed appropriate the whip this baby out.

The 32-year-old superstar has spoken about sexuality, feminism and self expression. ‘There is unbelievable power in ownership, and women should own their sexuality. There is a double standard when it comes to sexuality that still persists. Men are free and women are not. That is crazy. The old lessons of submissiveness and fragility made us victims. Women are so much more than that. You can be a businesswoman, a mother, an artist, and a feminist—whatever you…

Earlier that week I had an email drop into my inbox telling me all about the new tearoom from the people behind it, aka Theodore and James, who left their previous jobs as a landlord and accountant to set up their dream.

    I recently took part in a style challenge for Very.co.uk which was going to appear in their monthly magazine. I was asked to style up an outfit using one of the key SS14 trends, I was given embellishment and to style it for day. I’m pretty partial to the odd sequin or glitter especially during the day so was excited to put something together! I think the key thing to work embellishment for day is not to go too overboard, so I started off by choosing a pair of boyfriend jeans with ankle embellishments, the pearls and gemstones give the denims a little something extra without going OTT.

    I had the pleasure of dining at Luciano’s Restaurant at Habtoor Grand Beach Resort the other night. Now it’s been ages and ages since I’ve had decent Italian food (mostly because I haven’t been able to find a restaurant in Dubai close to the level of Magica Roma in Cape Town – oh how I miss their cannelloni). I was pleasantly surprised at how relaxed and fun and just amazingly chilled the vibe is at Luciano’s. One of those places that is perfect for a pizza lunch with a bunch of friends or an afternoon by the pool with your family (very kiddies friendly).

One of those hidden gems of a bar venue – sophisticated decor, top notch cocktails, surprisingly good sushi, and a really cool crowd. I wore a Forever 21 cropped top, paired with my Mersels high waisted, embroided skirt with silvery lace detail, and my Reiss beaded sequined clutch.   The post A night out in Dubai appeared first on .

    I feel like I’m permanently on the hunt for the perfect foundation as I’m yet to find one that I cannot live without.  ’Perfect’ for me means medium coverage, blends well, light on the skin & doesn’t feel heavy, covers all imperfections, and adds a bit of a glow/radiance to the skin. I also want my foundation/cover up to nourish my skin whilst I wear it, instead of clogging it or drying out my skin. So quite a bit of an ask from one little tube – I know, I know. As actual foundations are pretty heavy on the skin especially when worn in this Dubai heat,…

    My sister sends me quite a few emails a day…sometimes too many (shhh don’t tell her I said that). But it’s not every day she sends me emails with sentences like this one: “We will be having dinner at Rhodes 44 at St Regis Abu Dhabi, the capital’s first restaurant by Gary Rhodes!” And so the #StRegisADventure countdown begins (you can follow all of our excitement on Twitter). The St Regis has hotels all over the world, and in 12 days’ time my sister and I are going to be lucky enough to experience one of their newest additions, the St Regis Abu Dhabi, which opened in…
  • Taste of Cape Town 2014

    6 Apr 2014 | 11:26 am
    This year we took the Taste of Cape Town 2014 food festival to another level.   No meal was left untasted. No stall was left unvisited. No wine was left for anyone else (kidding…kind of).   The Taste of Cape Town is one of my favourite culinary events. Bring a group of friends who love to eat and drink, add some unusually hot April weather, and you have a recipe for a pretty epic day. So this is what we got up to at the fabulous foodie event this year: We experimented with cocktail-in-a-jar concoctions at the Consol Mixology Theatre. We tasted Jack Daniels honey shots (from…

    It’s been a while since I’ve last posted as I’ve been quite preoccupied as of late, so I wanted to share a quick weekend recap of a date night meal, which tasted as beautiful as it looks! To catch up on some much-needed one on one quality time with my husband, we made last-minute reservations to Fig & Olive in West Hollywood and I can still taste the amazing chicken tajine with its savory sauce, perfectly complemented by the subtly sweet and buttery apricots and figs. I also highly recommend sharing some crostinis (which they are known for) as an appetizer – they…

    Growing up, my mom had always kept my hair pretty long and feminine – creating intricate braids and up-dos with ribbons and sparkly things. But as I started to develop my own identity during my young adolescent years, I one day decided I wanted a layered long bob after seeing a model sport it in my Delia’s catalogue (remember those?) Proudly taking the clipping to a local beauty salon, I told the stylist that I wanted my hair EXACTLY like the model. Imagine the horror when the stylist went scissor-happy and pretty much chopped off all my long locks, leaving me with a boy-cut,…

  • What your Lipstick Shade says about you

    What we usually do is go for the lipstick shades which matches with the dress we wear. But there are many women (including me!) out there who would always grab that particular shade they are particularly close to, irrespective of whatever color dress they are wearing! So if you are wearing a maroon color dress and instead of choosing a lipstick of the similar shade, you pick up you usual peach or any other nude color lipstick, it would mean that you have a great affinity for that color. And this particular affinity towards particular shades speaks volumes about your nature, behavior and…

  • People Watching: ds23pallas

    oxford cloth button down
    20 Apr 2014 | 8:01 am
    More so than books like Take Ivy, classic ad campaigns from Ralph Lauren, or even vintage ads from the Ivy boom I am inspired by clothes being worn by real people. I have learned a lot from watching how others interpret traditional American dress. When done very well it is almost undetectable. It is this style that I am most drawn to. It is often so restrained and unexciting that it is very seldom featured in modern advertisements, but in the real world free from the constraints of stylist and marketing it exists. One person that embodies this look is Ask Andy Trad’s poster ds23pallas.

      I have mentioned that I enjoy sports here and there on the blog before, but I don’t think that I have been clear about just how important athletics are in my life. I almost always do something physical every single day (It is such a great stress reliever and makes for a happier healthier me.) whether that is running, cycling, free weights, racquetball, golf, tennis, etc., but a lot of the time it is simply a trip to the gym.

No longer can I turn to Lands’ End for OCBDs, or any button-down shirt for that matter that isn’t destined for weekend wear, because of their small collars (Not like the collar roll pictured above which is from Lands’ End.). Now I have to add chinos to this list of items that I cannot depend on them for. These changes didn’t happen overnight, but I have finally realized that a lot of what I loved about Lands’ End is gone and it isn’t coming back…
  • Wallabees in the Wild

    29 Mar 2014 | 3:32 pm
    A pair of Clarks Wallabees may not be one of the first shoes that come to mind when one thinks of Trad, Ivy, or Preppy shoes. In fact, it may remind some readers of one of the most non-traditional decades in terms of dress the 1970’s. However, Wallabees have been a part of my wardrobe since the mid-90’s and there is something that I find classically casual about the shoe. It is true that most classic casual shoes such as the penny loafer, bit loafer, tassel loafer (probably a few more loafers), and of course their brand cousin the desert boot are all pretty sleek. The Wallabee is not a…

This seemed like a pretty straight forward task and I thought that it would be the answer to all of my chino problems. Spoiler alert: They were not the cure-all. However, I did learn quite a bit about tailoring and myself in the process. I brought 4 pair of Lands’ End Tailored fit chinos (Which have suddenly disappeared from the website…discontinued?) to my…

  • This Star Trek Ring Boldly Goes Where No Ring Has Gone Before

    Jeremy Bray
    21 Apr 2014 | 7:00 am
    When I see rings like the one below, it really makes me wish that I could stand to wear rings.  Anybody who knows me knows that I don’t like to have anything on my fingers.  It doesn’t feel comfortable for me and it just seems like it is getting in the way.  However, the main reason why I don’t wear any kind of ring and never will is because I have a fear that once I put it on, I will never be able to get it off.  I guess I have just seen too many people with rings that have had their fingers fatten up to the point that they couldn’t take the ring off if they…

    Considering the fact that I have dozens of Doctor Who t-shirts (right now I am wearing one with Super Mario trying to steal the plunger thing off of a Dalek), it is a little odd that I don’t have any featuring the War Doctor.  I suppose that could be because until now, I don’t think I have seen any shirts with the War Doctor on it.  Well, if you are like me and happen to be in desperate need of a t-shirt featuring Grandad, I have stumbled upon the perfect shirt for you!

    Have you ever wanted to go out on the town looking like the TARDIS?  Well, if you are a woman or at least a cross dressing dude, now you can!  Who says the only time you can wear something like this is at a convention?!  This TARDIS dress is perfect for wearing to almost anything from a date to a wedding.  Well, perhaps I wouldn’t advise wearing it to a wedding because unless you are the bride, you will probably attract more attention than the bride with a dress like this and taking the spotlight away from the bride on her wedding day is not the smartest idea.  However, if you are…

They are in daily contact with our skin and carry up the remnants of cosmetics and bacteria that are often responsible for pimples. The questions that arise are what we use to clean them and how often we need to clean them. Water and soap is usually enough to remove germs and dirt. Simply hold your brush under the tap water with the bristles pointing downwards.

  • Best Socks for Small Feet

    Brock
    22 Feb 2014 | 10:09 am
    When it comes to clothing, many things are one-size-fits-all. This works okay for some accessories, like hats and scarves. But socks? Come on. Why should a man with a size 8 foot wear the same socks as a man with size 12 feet? It doesn’t add up. Plus, even if it did make sense, it’s very hard to find socks made for men who wear shoes smaller than size 8. I wear a size 7, and most socks are too big. Sure, you can wash them and hope they shrink down to size, and this works okay sometimes, but it’s not ideal. This blog is all about helping men under 5’8″ dress well.

Let's just say any mental endeavours were...taxing.Fortunately, I woke up this morning after sleeping in a bit and the swelling has gone down to the point that I…

    Aritzia pants, vintage clutch, Michael Kors heels,French Connection hat, sweater c/o Left on HoustonWhat I wore last night to dinner on Granville Island - I've not been feeling my best self for some reason this week (may just be feeling a bit dull post-bachelorette still, God I'm old) so cozy outfits have been my go-to all week. Though I've been gravitating toward more femme looks lately (Exhibit A, B, C or D), a comfy menswear look like this one with my favourite Aritzia trousers and this loose knit Left on Houston sweater was a refreshing way to take a break from all my girly outfits.

You don’t even need a gym membership. Take your pick of surfing, kayaking, swimming, hiking and walking on the beach, while getting bronzed.One of our favorite things to do is walk the beach with our dog and watch her dig for crabs while we look for heart shaped coral. It’s a win-win for all three of us! Those are the moments that mean the world to us and make us…

    Turn on your JavaScript to view content For this week’s new series, Accessorized Five Ways, I am going to give you my tips on how to wear a bib necklace.  It’s quite coincidental that last week, when I was putting the looks for this post together, I received an email from a blog reader looking for tips on this exact type of necklace.  There are a few ways to wear a bib necklace, several that I am going to share with you below, but before I get into that I want to give you some general  bib necklace suggestions.

    Turn on your JavaScript to view content There are some women out there who, no way, gun to the head, absolutely not, won’t wear shorts, even if it is the same temperature as the sun outside.  I tend to be one of those people.  Give me a skirt or summer dress over a pair of shorts any day, please.  However, a pair of denim shorts, especially a pair like a slim Bermuda style, like these from Lucky Brand, has me rethinking how against shorts I really am.  Unlike a dumpy, frumpy, wide as a bell, ick, pair of shorts that can make a woman’s butt look like a drive-in movie screen, a…

    18 Apr 2014 | 2:00 am
    One great thing about writing for Bridgette Raes’ Friday’s Fab Find is I get to spotlight small private owned companies. Don’t get me wrong if a huge company comes out with an amazing product it certainly not off the table but those companies have huge budget for advertising. Smaller companies rely on word of mouth. I like supporting small privately owned business, it’s good for the local communities they support. It’s a way for me to pay it forward. While teaching English in China after college, Hannah Davis discovered a pair of funky, old-school Chinese work shoes, and…

    One of my biggest addictions, like so many other people, is shoes... sneakers, brogues, loafers, boots, really any and all shoes that I can get my feet on! I'm always on the prowl for another great pair to add to my never ending collection and the changing season is the perfect excuse for you to be doing the same. One of my latest discoveries - Frank Wright Shoes - a UK brand based out of London and easily a part of British history established in 1885. For me, shoes should be sleek and clean but built with attention to detail so they can easily be worn and enjoyed for any day to day activity.

    For some, fashion is what adorns models who strut their stuff on the runways and catwalks of the world. For others, fashion is the way they express themselves at different times.
