    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.

They would play it all day, every single day if I let them. I’m going to be totally honest with you, I don’t know ANYTHING about Minecraft. Since I want to know what the boys are playing all the time, I thought it would be fun to sit down with them and have them give me some Minecraft advice. Share this on Facebook Tweet This!

    Getting Gorgeous at Home is all about easy ways to create the most “gorgeous” home for you and your family. We’re all about the easy, doable and practical tips for you… nothing too crazy, or in my mind – nothing too Martha Stewart perfect (because that’s so not me – I have 4 sons!). Today is all about my living room. My living room is very dark. I opted for warmer and richer colors when we first moved in… mochas, browns, navys… I don’t have any pops of color that bring happiness or spark passion! Since I’m an etsy LOVER……

    Baby gear is something that I’ve become an expert in over the last 9 months with my Victoria. It’s funny, when I had my 4 sons a few years ago, there wasn’t that much out there for babies to play in. I’m not kidding. Back in 2004, I remember there were very few items that I was able to register for when it came to lounging products for babies. I remember actually using our carseat for awhile in front of the TV because I couldn’t really find any products that I felt William would be safe in. Well, fast forward 10 years. Here I am, a mom of 5 now… and I am…

    My Grandmother is 89 years old today. I can’t believe it. 89 years old. That’s a lot of life. My grandmother is the kindest, most gentle, most adorable, most lovely woman in the world. She really is. She just loves her family so much and it’s so amazing to see and be part of. I’ve always had a very special bond with my Grandma. I remember being as young as 8 years old and calling her up just to chat. I would do that throughout my life… in high school, in college, living in NYC, as a first time mom and even now. My grandmother doesn’t want for much in…

    Julia Welling

    The term "basic," used to describe the Starbucks drinking, Instagram using, pizza eating, girl has been popping up everywhere. Whether you've read it in an article or watched College Humor and Lohanthony's viral videos, you've probably already diagnosed yourself with the terrible "basic" disease. But nobody wants to be a typical girl. They're boring. And being the same as every other chick won't get you anywhere. So, this whole "basic" epidemic got us thinking, and we've found a solution.

    Julianne Hough is probably still recovering from her Coachella hangover--but she's doing so very stylishly, if you ask us. The dancer/actress/triple threat just stepped out in LA wearing these Pam & Gela Daisy print shorts ($195), which we are loving for spring. The printed short shorts are a welcome alternative to the denim cut-off if you feel like you're too grown to wear jorts. Pair them with a chambray shirt like Julianne's and low booties for a just-running-errands-like-a-boss look. Easy peasy. GET JULIANNE'S SHORTS HERE

    When Chanel showed off an updated version of our favorite piece of jewelry from the '90s during its Spring/Summer 2014 runway show (seen above on Miley Cyrus), we didn't realize it would set off a number look-alikes. But thankfully, that's a good thing, because not everyone prefers to wear a pair of oversized pearls on their neck. Usually in slick metals like yellow gold, silver, or rose gold (like Zoe Kravitz's choice by Balenciaga), and sometimes embellished at the ends (a la Doutzen Kroes wearing Marc Alary), these open-style necklaces that perfectly lay along your collar are nothing like…

You might have heard how the show’s creator, Rob Thomas, and its star, Kristen Bell, used Kickstarter to raise funds for the film with the help of the show’s devoted fan base. When a series has that kind of support, it must be good, right? If you haven’t seen the original TV show, it’s about a smart, tough, and resourceful teen detective, Veronica Mars, who lives…

    Putting on mascara is one of my favorite parts of every day. (Is that weird? I didn’t think so!) I can skip every other part of my makeup routine, but I still have to apply mascara or my face just feels a little bit… bare. I also love how a little eyeliner can make your entire makeup look defined and put-together, so it’s another one of my makeup must-haves. Predictably, I go a little insane when I see that there’s a new eyeliner or mascara out, and I just have to try them. Below, I’m reviewing four recently released eyeliners and mascaras.

    Last week Bikini Berlin opened its doors. The new Berlin mall (for the lack of a better word) is supposed to re-invent the west of the city and once can certainly say that it is partly doing that. With the opening of the Waldorf Astoria luxury hotel in the area and the recent opening of the first Uniqlo store in Germany, the western part of the city seems to be on the up, after 20 years of everybody exclusively talking about the east. Of course we visited the new shopping destination and while not fully occupied yet, some promising brands and retailers have already opened their spaces.

Akin to Alexander Wang, who received all sorts of media complaints when he decided to stage his latest spring/summer 2014 show there earlier this year, Raf Simons will be hosting the pre-spring/summer2015 Cruise show in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Navy Yard, to be exact. “We wanted the show to feel very New York, and the Navy Yard’s view and space captures the…

    From a chic perfume to a fun accessory, these finishing touches make your style that much more enticing.  Along with colorful spring blooms, I can’t help but fall hard for bright, cheery hues like these dazzling bracelet watches. The square dial is perfect for the season in iridescent pastel hues, and will always add just the right amount of shimmer – in a simple, modern style.  It will be your everyday watch to complement your spring & summer looks.  The question is would you choose Minty or River?

    As the seasons change so does my fragrance.  For this spring & summer, I’m back to one of my all time favorite perfumes. Chanel No5 Eau Premiere is the perfume to make life more chic and stylish.  I’m addicted to its exceptionally pretty citrus opening that settles down to a subtly powdery, irrisistible floral notes. It’s a perfectly versatile scent for every occasion from a typical day at the office to a romantic dinner date!  To me, the original version doesn’t hold a candle to the more youthful “daughter” in the bottle.  Chanel recently released…

  • Perfectly-edited nursing-friendly clothing from shopburu.com

    15 Apr 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Maternity clothing tends to garner more than a few complaints. While it’s true that finding maternity styles that fit well and look stylish can be difficult, finding outstanding nursing-friendly clothing styles can be even harder. Most brands factor a bump into the cut of their nursing tops and dresses, despite the fact that many of us nurse long after we’ve returned to our normal pre-pregnancy size. Thankfully someone gets it, and that someone is BU RU. Nothing at shopburu.com is your traditional nursing fare. It’s all ready-to-wear looks that adapt to the needs of…

Even though the line won’t hit stores until early November, the designer celebrated his new collection with H&M in grand fashion with a party out in Indio. Several of his famous friends showed up to mark the endeavor decked out in festival-appropriate H&M pieces.

  • Most Days I Wear…

    jennine
    14 Apr 2014 | 10:21 am
    Shop this look!   Most days I just throw on a button down and a pair of pants. I’ll wear heels most days (although most days 3″ heels tops). And a nice bag. Even to go to the super market. I’m the overdressed one at the baby singing class. Who am I trying to impress? That’s a good question. I suppose that having a personal style blog with just pants and button downs would be boring. Which was part of my issue with bringing back this blog. I’ve been working developing my style which is a lot more boring than it sounds. It’s not about indulging in every…

    Over the weekend I joked what life would be like without makeup… Sometimes I wish I looked good without makeup, but then… what would I do in the morning? Just leave the house like whatever? — Jennine Jacob (@thecoveted) April 5, 2014 Of course, I leave the house all the time without makeup. People ask, “What happened?” most of those times. But whatevs. I could chalk that up to getting older, but they asked, “What happened?” in my teens as well. What do I look like without makeup?

    Do you know the real reason I started The Coveted back again? Well.. it was because when I look at shoes (and clothes and jewelry and accessories and beauty products) on the internet all the time. All. The. Time. Shoes I can afford, shoes I can’t. A lot of shoes I can’t. I had heard that one of the boutique owners I interviewed on The Coveted long ago had moved on to TheRealReal. After initially checking it out, it had become one of the stops I obsessively check out when I’m cruising the ‘net. As it’s a consignment shop with all the benefits of online luxury…

    8 Apr 2014 | 9:00 am
    Bags have always been the one piece I have always loved on OTHER people, but when it came to the bag I would like for myself… they’ve always perplexed me. Is it too big, too boxy, to boring? Or is it too small, too floppy, too crazy? OR there’s that thing where the bag I love just cost $2,600. Now we’re just talking crazy. It’s not often I run into a bag designer that’s in the contemporary spectrum of fashion designers that creates collection after collection of cool-as-fuck handbags.

    Leather shorts. They’re one of those things you think you can’t possibly pull off. Their image lies somewhere between lederhosen and dominatrix… and maybe a little bit of both for that matter. I’ve had my go at leather shorts over the years, I had this pair of brown leather shorts from Topshop that I just had the hardest time making work. Even though I loved the idea of them, after having them for years I just gave them to charity. And like how nature abhors a vacuum, as does my wardrobe. As one pair of leather shorts came out, I spotted a pair of faux leather shorts…

    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…

    Take a look at what you're wearing. Have you ever wondered who made it? 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.

She is quite the mixture of polished and RATE (rough around the edges), and is a neutrals gal at heart.

Boden’s silk linen sweater is a good match and as lightweight as a T-shirt. Size up a size.

  • Pedal Pushers: Yay or Nay

    Angie
    15 Apr 2014 | 3:49 am
    Pedal pushers are slim-fitting bottoms that finish on or just over the knee. They are shorter than calf length. I’ve referred to pedal pushers as clamdiggers in the past, while retailers in the US call them capris or cropped pants. This is not a new silhouette, but it has taken a back seat in a fashion world that is currently besotted with ankle pants.  Pedal pushers are structured, and made of dressy fabrics like wool and cotton blends, or casual fabrics like denim, in both solids and patterns. They frequently have a slit on the hem of the knee to increase the comfort level as you stride.

    It’s been especially fun helping clients pull together their business casual wardrobes this season because Spring 2014 is full of new, work appropriate silhouettes. Lightening up the colours of a workwear wardrobe is key to refreshing your style at this time of year. Matching ink blue with shades of white has been particularly popular because it’s neutral, versatile, flattering, and über fresh after a Winter of wearing lots of black and grey.  I recently went shopping with a corporate client who is extremely polished and prefers better-end professional pieces. She favours neutrals,…

    WE WILL LIVE AGAIN looks inside the unusual and extraordinary operations of the Cryonics Institute. The film follows Ben Best and Andy Zawacki, the caretakers of 99 deceased human bodies stored at below freezing temperatures in cryopreservation. The Institute and Cryonics Movement were founded by Robert Ettinger who, in his nineties and long retired from running the facility, still self-publishes books on cryonics, awaiting the end of his life and eagerly anticipating the next.

    From the International New York Times- Shortly after a mob looted his Bangui neighborhood and killed a Muslim man in broad daylight in December, Khaled Dea Oumar joined other young Muslims in the street. Exasperated at what he saw as a lack of protection from French and African Union forces supposed to be keeping the peace in the Central African Republic capital, he ran up to a group of African Union soldiers who had arrived on the scene too late. “We tell you to come, and you don’t come,” he shouted. “What are you doing?” James Nachtwey Rwanda, 1994- Survivor of Hutu death camp As…

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…

Mindless chatter that occasionally verged on the hilariously brilliant. But look closer and you see that this show isn’t that show, and that new realities are upon us in America. The country has changed since “Seinfeld” signed off in May 1998, and Jerry has changed. His popular new online show, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” dispenses with the observational examination of regular life that defined the old “Seinfeld.” In its…

But will it push through the painful reforms the country needs or will it chart a political collision course with Brussels? With his deep voice, prominent chin and black hair, Manuel Valls is a man who exudes an aura of authority. As France’s new prime minister, it’s an authority he will also have to put to the test. Things had a tendency to go haywire whenever they could in the government of his predecessor, Jean-Marc…

    Just launched at Jo Malone London is the Michael Angove Limited Edition Collection which features bath soaps, scented sachets, candle and a scent diffuser. Angove, a British designer, created two bespoke packaging designs for two scents: Blackberry & Bay and Orange Blossom. The detail of his packaging design is so rich – it really captures the very nature of the scents. Through Angove's post on his blog, I came to discover that in each design there are hidden bugs from the stenocereus beetle to mantis. I was given a box of the Bath Soap Collection ($40) which features both scents…

    Whenever the seasons change, I tend to celebrate with a pair of shoes (or two, or um, three). I recently picked up the Coach Wooster Flat in python-embossed leather ($218, pictured below). I have gotten so many compliments each time I wear these, that I'm sure I need another color. The Wooster flat also comes in colored and metallic versions ($188) like silver, warm blush, cerise (pictured at top left) and black. I'm so glad that pointy-toed flats are in and the thin delicate strap look oh so pretty. Another favorite shoe comeback I adore is the chunky heel. The Mackenzie Heel…

  • Spring Denim Trend Do or Don't: Mom Jeans. Are You Into It?

    15 Apr 2014 | 10:32 am
    The celebrity world sure is. The mom jeans trend has been slowly overtaking the nation—nay, world— in the past year and, this spring, the movement has finally reached its apex. But before we start debating the pros and cons of the '90s denim redux, let's break down the different types of mom jeans. The impeccably chic and envelope-pushing Gwyneth Paltrow caused a bit of commotion when she debuted her mom jeans on a coffee run late last year. The '90s-reminiscent faded wash is a fundamental detail of this type of denim, but the wider leg and low slung waistline differentiate…

    Lindsay Ginn
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:18 am
    Clothes are a lot like cars in the sense that, when you buy a new one and drive it off the lot, the value drops instantly. A piece of clothing can have the tags on and be completely unworn, but if it isn’t being bought from the store, the potential price of that item drops with every day that ticks by. This is what makes buying secondhand so smart. The problem? A lot of thrift and secondhand stores have reputations for being cluttered, disorganized, and full of things that are clearly worn – and most of it is definitely not current. It’s often hard to see how an older,…

    Maybe it’s the influx of Coachella fashion emails and posts, but I find myself attracted to rompers lately. A lot of it probably has to do with the fact that it’s basically Summer Pajamas – aka a onesie with all the too-warm parts cut off and that isn’t any easier to pee in. Pee in, pee while wearing. Whatever. I’ve never owned a romper, nor have I ever found one that looked comfortable enough to rock all day. Jumpersuits, on the other hand, are just fancy onesies, and I’ve seen countless that I would happily spend a full day in. Shorts? Well, shorts and I…

Holding my phone all the time is giving me anxiety. Because I’m never unreachable, I’m constantly waiting for something to come in, and always feeling the pressure to respond.

She was terrified, trembling, and she could hardly get the words out. “I’ve been dealing with an eating disorder for 13 years, and I’ve been in and out of treatment.

They are also the things I used to distract myself from a particularly cold day back in January! It all came together quite serendipitously: Sassy emailed me from the U.K., and said something along the lines of, “I’m coming to New York City. I’d like to bring you a dress and shoot you in it.

    How do you persuade the world's top two tennis players to take to the court outside their hectic schedules? It's easy when you're Natalia Vodianova. The persuasive supermodel and philanthropist invited a group of her closest friends and supporters of her charity, the Naked Heart Foundation, to witness a private match between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic in celebration of the tenth anniversary of the NHF on Saturday. Due to injury, Djokovic had to sit out at the last minute, which was unfortunate because he gave Vodianova the idea in the first place. The story began at last July's Love…

My rationale was that one must consider the company from which you’re buying the item and the entirety of its environmental footprint – which would more than likely outweigh any of the positives you might have achieved by buying an organic…

    9 Apr 2014 | 10:32 am
    Recently I bought these Kata tights by Karma at my Pure Barre Studio. AT FULL PRICE. I did this because I love Karma tights (this is my second pair) and I desperately needed a new pair of tights that fit (I bought these in a size SMALL. SMALL!!!!). And they were right there in front of me; I could take them home right then, and wear them to class the next day if I wanted to.A few days later I was browsing Nordstrom’s activewear section and saw that the pants were on sale there for $68 – nearly $30 less than what I paid for them. Instantly, I berated myself a little for not…

  • {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).

    15 Apr 2014 | 3:30 pm
    I have an inveterate aversion to the unexpected. I hate surprise parties. I conduct extensive consumer research before I purchase anything, from new shoes to vacuum cleaners. The idea of plunging blind into a situation fills me with a mounting dread, a gnawing in the pit of my stomach knowing that I have no say in the outcome. This charming quirk has led me on a lifelong journey to impart control over a variety of situations that are inherently uncontrollable — the job search, the actions of others, and most importantly, dating. Any way you slice it, dating is fucking terrifying for me,…
  • New Study: Young Women View Incidents of Sexual Assault as Normal

    15 Apr 2014 | 3:00 pm
    A study conducted by Marquette University offers insight into why many victims don’t report incidents of sexual assault. Researchers analyzed interviews with 100 young people between the ages of 3 and 17 and found young women fear being labeled a “whore,” believe men can’t help themselves, and view many inappropriate acts as “normal.” “They grab you, touch your butt, and try to, like, touch you in the front, and run away. But it’s okay, I mean…I never think it’s a big thing because they do it to everyone,” says one interview subject. So the young…
  • Pew Center: Only a Quarter of Americans Consider Pres. Obama ‘Black’

    According to new survey data from the Pew Research Center, only a 27 percent of Americans consider President Obama “Black,” while just over half (52%) view him as “mixed race.” The data prompted many declare the findings “fascinating” and wonder if this signals yet another (slow) shift toward Post-Racial America. But there’s just one problem. Can’t a person be both? As Jenée Desmond-Harris writes in The Root, biracial people with a Black parent have historically identified (or have been seen) as Black. It’s not an either/or proposition. The only thing fascinating (read:…

    Members of Boko Haram are believed to be behind the attack on a northeastern Nigerian school late last night. Around 100 girls are thought to have been abducted. “Many girls were abducted by the rampaging gunmen who stormed the school in a convoy of vehicles,” says education official Emmanuel Sam. One girl, who managed to escape, told BBC she and fellow students were sleeping when armed men burst into their hostel. “Three men came into our room and told us not to panic. We later found out that they were among the attackers,” she says. Ten to 15 girls managed to escape the convoy…

  • Zac Efron in Double Denim – Neil Barrett & April77

    Zac Efron was in good spirits as he walked the carpet at the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles, California. The actor wore a denim shirt by Neil Barret and his April77 Joey Knightrider Jeans in Black. I know that the MTV awards are not the most serious of awards, but I still find this look to be a bit too casual. I think just buttoning up the last top button or pairing it with blue jeans would have taken this look to something more polished. That aside, I think the details of this shirt are really great and the jeans fit him really well. You can click here to purchase Neil Barrett from their…

    January Jones was photographed while taking her son out to lunch at Little Doms. She wore her STROM Brand Tre selvedge skinny jeans in crush with a striped t shirt and Converse sneakers. This is the second time we’ve seen January in these jeans in the past couple of weeks and I am a fan of how she’s styled them both times. I’ve been really enjoying her style lately, it seems as though she’s been moving away from her funky quirky pieces and wearing things with a bit more of an edge.

    The biggest mistake I regularly see from brands is hosting a blogger event with no clear strategy. They simply and just throw open the doors and step aside.  I am still surprised by the number of big fashion, tech and accessory brands that hand me products and/or money and simply expect me to bring bloggers to the event to enjoy themselves, with absolutely no discussion of expectations or post-event follow-up except for a ‘brief event recap and some photos.’  These same companies would never pay for TV or print ads without a clear understanding of the corresponding impressions, metrics…

    If you've ever been the recipient of one of those awful black nylon laptop bags (I sure have), either as a gift or part of conference swag, or spent hours searching online for a stylish, functional laptop or camera bag (done that too), then you know what a challenge it can be to simply find something that looks like a purse or bag you would carry anyway, but that just happens to also fit and protect your iPad, Macbook or DSLR. I typically travel with my laptop in an incase, tucked inside a black leather, monogrammed tote, my big camera wrapped in a sweater inside my suitcase. It's not ideal,…

    You’ve spent all winter under your warm winter jacket, but now the spring has begun if you still wear the same jacket you’ll spend most of the time feeling too hot whenever you have it on, but too cold if you take it off. It’s time to get it dry cleaned, pack it away and replace it with a spring jacket – one of the most useful items of clothing around for these months when it can be sunny and warm one moment, but change in an instant to a chill breeze that you can’t seem to get escape from. A spring coat can also be a great way to state your own particular style. There are many…

    I know that I am not alone here, excited and shopping for new spring looks for my closet. A few weeks back, we featured the Plus Size Spring Trend Guide and today, I wanted to share a few tops that I have long had my eye on that I had to feature with you. At first this list was five, easily growing to ten, then boom 14. I have been on a personal journey to rock more separates in my looks and personal style, and I am finding that when I do, there is a relaxed ease about it. And with the sporty look, statement tees, crop tops topping a few of those trends, I am giddy with fashion glee. I cannot…

Basically, I care about this brand, as its success at the time meant so much more to the community then just another place to shop. SO, when they asked if I wanted to be interviewed,…

    Dressing well is not always about looking good in the trendiest pieces. Sometimes it is a matter of choosing an outfit that is appropriate for the situation at hand. It does not matter how well-chosen an ensemble is if it is not suitable for the event or the overall tone set by the other people there. Slim Skirts For Work Young women sometimes struggle to figure out how to dress appropriately when they first enter the professional world.

  • Is Bigger Always Better? A Quick Look at America’s Obsession with Body Enhancement

    Dixie Summers
    20 Mar 2014 | 12:40 pm
    American society (like nearly every society that has come before) has a beauty obsession. For the Victorians, it was corsets to give a narrow waist. For Americans, increasingly, it’s liposuction and breast augmentation for surgical procedures, along with facial injections and skin treatments for non-surgical ones. As this phenomenon continues to grow and evolve, very few people take the time to think—is bigger always better. Here’s a glance at how these expectations and obsessions have developed over the years, and the role beauty will play in America’s future. Prevalence…

    There are many things that the French simply do better and among them is style. So, it makes sense that the debut of chic Parisian label The Kooples on private sale innovator (yes, they were the first!) Vente Privee would be cause for celebration. Comprised of effortless dresses and separates – the kind that borrow inspiration from icons of fashion and a love of vintage - the sale, live now, boasts a bevy of spring-perfect pieces, many at prices of up to 70% off retail.

    Arm & Hammer Baking Soda is one of those weirdly miraculous and truly multi-use products. I mean, YES, I use it to deodorize my kitties' litter box weekly AND to clean my coffee pot after one too many brews. But don't dismiss Baking Soda's beauty applications too.  One of my fave tricks? Try mixing a teaspoon or two into your favorite shampoo to create, instantly, a clarifying version.  I keep the water-resistant shaker, seen above, in my shower and indulge weekly - as a bonus, it adds lift and volume naturally. Likewise, it's an easy and inexpensive exfoliating boost to your face or…

Simply put, they were my go-to's for everything from cocktail events to interviews, meetings to dates. So, it was a walk down memory lane a week or two ago when I visited The…

Lucky for us, Richard Nahem paid the handbag museum a visit and brought back plenty of photos to share. What I do remember is a visit up...

  • Wallpaper* & Volvo: On the road

    15 Apr 2014 | 5:32 pm
    Craft, care and attention to detail are synonymous with the Swedish approach to product design. Volvo’s ongoing journey towards a new era of design and technology keeps these Scandinavian qualities close, and nowhere is this better exemplified than through the materials, forms and processes that have gone into its triptych of cutting-edge concept cars. Robin Page, Volvo’s interior design director, joined the company after playing a major role in some of the world’s most luxurious automotive brands. Page understands the importance of materials, quality and detail in conveying…
  • Artist Tauba Auerbach's debut London show at the ICA brings mathematics down to earth

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:14 pm
    Did the artist Tauba Auerbach know that her exhibition at London's ICA would launch on a palindromic day, at the centre of a palindromic week? On 4-16-14, as per the style used in her New York home, the ICA's Lower Gallery will unveil 'The New Ambidextrous Universe', a show preoccupied with symmetry, and based on an eponymous scientific text that explores mirror images and left/right parity. Everything about Auerbach's first solo exhibition in the UK feels fittingly balanced, from the building's classical façade to the gallery interior, with its wall of repetitive…
  • The new Mercedes S63: smart, savvy and seriously quick off the mark

    14 Apr 2014 | 4:41 pm
    If you want to be driven in sober, efficient but technologically advanced style, get a Mercedes S-Class. For decades now, the venerable big saloon has been both range-topper and technical showcase. The first European car to have airbags and one of the first to have ABS, it was the platform that launched many of the things we take for granted in a modern automobile. Large, solid and classically elegant, the 'S' is a no-brainer for corporate fleets and CEOs. The latest generation of the S-Class, the W222, was preceded by the usual marketing bluster about innovation and technology. But…
  • Kew House by Piercy & Company, London

    11 Apr 2014 | 4:56 pm
    A spirited project that is full of surprises, Kew House is a four-bedroom family home in southwest London, transformed from an existing structure on the plot. It is the result of a collaboration between the clients - husband and wife Tim and Jo Lucas - together with local architecture practice Piercy & Company. The intention was to create a 'pure expression of Tim and I in a very bespoke way', explains Jo. In response to the area's existing architecture, the original 19th century red brick building - previously hosting stables that were later converted into garages - was kept…

  • #Music Mondays: Coachella Artists and the Power of Social Media

    Sarah Essary
    14 Apr 2014 | 1:34 pm
    With the closing of Coachella Weekend 1 yesterday, I’m serving up a few of my favorite remixes where both the remixed artist and producer were both on the lineup. So, you have BANKS, Disclosure and Daughter – all performed live at Coachella. And then you have the producers: Shlohmo, Flume and Sound Remedy, who remixed these tracks and played at Coachella too. With that in mind, Coachella is a perfect example of how the power of social media is changing the way artists share music. Not only is the average consumer getting music faster, but the artists themselves are passing music…

Now, I’m so proud to be able to feature his latest creation here on my blog today: East Bay Hustle. Take a listen! He describes it as, “Maybe not the best beat for lyrics but the guitar is dirty. The sample is from an Ohio Players vinyl I bought for 50 cents at a flea market in Oakland.” He doesn’t need to be that modest – the track is easy on the ears Follow Scotty’s music and photography on Twitter here:…

    Click to view slideshow. Product placement is an integral component to marketing your product to consumers. Why? It brings the products to life, gives them a personality and allows consumers to connect with it as something aspirational and tangible. Currently, leading fashion brands like RVCA and This is a Love Song are fitting singers like Ellie Goulding and SZA for their performances and photo shoots. And the interesting part, is that these pieces specifically, are moderately priced. This allows their fans to purchase and ultimately increase affinity by wearing their clothes. Learn more…

    A few weeks ago I was approached to try a new local skin care line, Nya Beauty.  This skin care line is an organic three piece line specifically created for those who deal with combo/oily skin. As someone who actually has oily skin, this piqued my interest. The line consisted of the Clarifying Cranberry Cleanser (3.3 fl. oz for $16), a Purifying Toner (2 fl. oz for $10), and a Mattifying

One of my New Year's resolutions is to build a workout wardrobe that makes me feel good and could also build layers for quick and easy work meetings. Which is why I am delighted Athleta contacted me to be part of a blogger style challenge. Here is what I wore this weekend to go to class at Exhale and a brunch meeting post barre...I'm sold on this Jaya tank - it flatters my curves and disguises softness in the belly without looking bulky around the midsection - how do they do this?  Genius.

    Little white lies — we all tell them. But, sometimes those seemingly harmless fibs can cause some serious damage. Take, for instance, your hair. Whether it's a cut you hate or even unintentional baldness, a lot of drama can come from telling a lie to your stylist. But, don't think you're getting away with those untruths. Your locks will always sell you out. When you sit down in that salon chair, any stylist or colorist worth her weight in Elnett will be able to tell what you’ve been up to. That said, there’s still plenty you need to share with them that may not be as plain as the hair…

For some this may be near sacrilege, for Benton it’s about love. Seriously, this film gets pretty emotional…

    I don’t normally classify myself as a “pink” person. Maybe it’s a rebellion to this past winter, maybe it’s my reaction to just how fun it looks (seriously, I’d skip to work wearing this outfit), or maybe it’s just the fact that it’s a fantastic look! So do it you youthful graduates and interns! Embrace the pink! The outfit above is just adorable and fun. This is taking it to more of an evening look, but swap the sandals for wedges or round-toe pumps (or even ballet flats) and the clutch for a chic tote, and you have a look meant for shining up…

What InStyle said: At the Amazing Spider-Man 2 event, Emma Stone showed off her expertise in menswear-inspired looks in tailored Balenciaga pieces, including a gray vest over a crisp black-and-white top, and cropped black trousers. Black asymmetrical strappy sandals and delicate rings (by Melissa Kaye and Dana Rebecca Designs) delivered just the right dose of femininity. I agree, InStyle; I agree.

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…

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…

We are on week two of Dad working like literally all the time, we miss him and it’s pretty safe to say that he misses us. Our adventures have sorta been a bit slim, things are much more toned down on the awesome scale and probably a lot more tense when he isn’t around. He always brings the party and has this smooth calming way about him especially when it comes to the kids. Also, after so much time with mostly just me and the kids, we kinda-sorta-a little bit start to push each others…

For some reason or another, I am just totally digging pale pink right now. It’s not the best color for my extreme paleness but whatever I still want it in my closet.

I, for some reason assumed that I could a) keep all these things out of my house or that my daughter would just naturally not be interested in them. b) the classic more “girly” toys wouldn’t be a great toys for her to play with. My Mom will probably laugh a little at this post, because I’m pretty sure she laughed at me when I told her my plans for keeping Barbie and all the girly toys, away until Harlow was old enough to decide if she wanted them…

    11 Apr 2014 | 11:34 am
    THE WHO: Scarlett Johansson puts in most of the grunt work in Jonathan Glazer’s first film in 13 years. THE WHAT: A species from another planet embodies the human female form and combs the highway in search of isolated or forsaken men, luring a succession of lonely men into an otherworldly lair where they are seduced, stripped of their skin, and never heard from again. THE BIG DEAL: Glazer has made, by far, one of the eeriest and creepiest films that have come out in the past decade. “Under The Skin” is a bare-bones, artfully rendered sci-fi tale that sinks into you and…

    Two things that help me feel ah-mazing on the daily are looking stylish + grooving my body.  My favorite days are the days that involve a visit to the park, riding my bike, indoor rock climbing, and/or a group class (pilates, yoga, spin, barbell, etc).  It wasn’t until I walked into the grand opening of “active fashion” retailer Soybu‘s flagship store that I realized exactly how fashionable my activewear could be. Obviously, I love styling workout clothes but I hadn’t quite realized the potential for transitioning my fitness style to my everyday life beyond the…

    In 2007, Kim Kardashian became an instant celebrity when a pornographic video of her and singer Ray-J, Brandy’s little brother, was released online. Kim claimed the video was a leak and a result of revenge porn, and that she tried to pursue legal action. Let’s just say nothing came out of the legal action, not even court filings, at least by all accounts. Instead, Kim was offered a reality television show and before you know it, became a regular staple and reality tv diet for millions of Americans.

    Coming off my recent discussion at UC Hastings College of the Law on a Panel titled ‘Social Media and Fair Use’ and of course knowing the current state of anxiousness with respect to digital media and copyright issues for creative business owners  across music, fashion and the film industries, I find this recent story and move by Getty Images quite interesting. They say if you can’t beat them, join them. Getty says, “look, people are already pirating and infringing on our copyright work. The cost of litigation would be exorbitant to go after them, plus there is this…

    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.

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.

    Kick your outfits up a notch. Drab to Fab shows you how to choose clothes for your everyday outfits that will make you feel like a more confident, put-together version of you. Traveling, especially flying, has become less like a fun adventure and more like a mountain expedition. There’s you, your suitcases (not checked because who wants to pay the baggage fees), your kids and your food (which you’re carrying on because they aren’t going to give you anything to eat on the plane). No wonder you want to dress comfortably! But comfort doesn’t have to mean drab. Just because you don’t…

    I don’t normally post on T-shirt brands but this one caught my eye today, Black Score is a t-shirt label for men and women with a punk rock aesthetic and a DIY approach to printing created in 2012 by artist Simon Farrar. The kids collection is launched this April exclusively at Selfridges and takes inspiration from the child’s perspective on a shopping spree with parents with added humour, so high end purchases become from Meow Meow or Chanail.

    I know I only posted the spring/summer campaign a few weeks ago but having seen the fall/winter 2014 shoot for Estonian designer Xenia Joost’s kids fashion collection I couldn’t resist posting again. The quirky modern take Xenia has with fashion helps of course but the edginess of the shots also makes this a fab set of kids photos for the Estonian born compatriots. The clothes are minimalist in nature with simple shapes cut loose from the body, draped and often cut diagonally to give interest to shape or openings.

Who, but Karl Lagerfeld the genius(and obviously his PR team- another set of genius people), would have thought of creating the set of their catwalk as a supermarket? First it was sneakers at Haute Couture~ nobody knew what to think about that~ but publicity was everywhere, now a supermarket with everything from rice, to milk and to shampoo being Chanel branded content.

    When you think of Lands’ End clothing, what do you think of? I remember mail-order turtlenecks, jumpers, and holiday catalogs full of puppies on toboggans. But maybe I’m stuck in the 90s. Lands’ End has kept up with modern fashion and might surprise you with its style. For instance! Here’s a Lands’ End dress available as our Good Buy this week. A violet canvas with golden and ivory roses, it’s appropriate for work or festive gatherings. A modest scooped neck and a few ruffles go nicely with the capped sleeves.

Finding shoes is often one of the biggest challenges of shopping secondhand. Clothing that’s a bit too big can be tailored, but you can’t do much about the size of a shoe. Either it fits, or it doesn’t. If the fit isn’t quite right, you risk being miserable and having the blisters to prove it.

    Want to maximize the lifespan of your dress shirts? Off-the-shelf shirts have a two-year life expectancy. The average packaged shirt should have a wear life of 35 to 50 washings. If you can invest in custom dress shirts, they will last 5 to 7 years with proper care.  This is because custom shirts have reinforced seams, higher quality fabrics, and extra fusing in the collar for increased durability. Here’s what you need to know about shirt care: Return that Wrinkle-Free Shirt. Adhesives and other materials in the armhole seams on wrinkle-free dress shirts can cause staining and stiffness…

    Me. Last night. Wasn’t even that cold. They say there’s no crying in baseball, but I manage to make the same mistake at the beginning of every season. Of course, it’s partially my fault for buying tickets to games early in the season—you know, those chilly March and April days where you’d really rather be curled up inside with a book. But after a long winter, I become so starved for the wholesome goodness of baseball, that I practically run out of the house without a first, let alone second, glance at the weather report. So here’s a lesson for you, dear reader.

    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.

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…

    Never underestimate the marketing power of Lucille Ball! I grew up watching re-runs of I Love Lucy on the telly, and there is a special corner of my heart reserved for it, but even my love of the 1950s sitcom wouldn’t make me buy these hideous spin offs! Even the gorgeous Lucy looks unconvinced about her ‘I Love Lucy Pajamas’ in the picture below. And as for the ‘Live Like Lucy’ bedroom suite and slightly creepy ‘I Love Lucy Baby’… Still, apparently the 50s sitcom still has an audience of 40 million each year in the US alone so perhaps there is…

She was extremely popular but died tragically young at the height of her career aged just 36. Above: Photo of Jimmy Durante, Lupe Vélez and the Mills Brothers from the 1934 film Strictly Dynamite. Born María Guadalupe Villalobos Vélez she started her career as a Vaudeville dancer in Mexico and eventually moved to America to work first in silent movies, and then in talkies in the 1930s.   With the nickname “The Mexican Spitfire” and “The Hot Pepper”…
  • Movie Monday: Hitchcock’s The Man Who Knew Too Much (1956)

    vilvintage
    14 Apr 2014 | 4:48 am
    If you follow my blog you might have noticed that I’m going through a bit of a Hitchcock phase at the moment. I very much enjoyed The 39 Steps last week (much to my surprise and delight) but sadly I can’t say the same about this movie. Up until this point I’ve pretty much enjoyed every Hitchcock movie I’ve ever seen: North by Northwest, Psycho, The Birds, To Catch a Thief, The Lady Vanishes etc. Psycho is a bit weird and not one of my favourites but all of them are great movies in their own right, so I was expecting The Man Who Knew Too Much to be equally good. Before…

    Did you know that Uma Thurman’s mum was one of the most popular models in the 1950s? The Fifties was a great time for models. For the first time they became superstars in their own right. Apart from ‘the big three’ (Suzy Parker, Dovima and Jean Patchett), there were lots of other models who really made their name in this decade. Here are my favourites: 1. Suzy Parker Suzy Parker was one of the very top models of the 1950s and is perhaps most famous for being the face of Revlon. She was the first model to earn $100,000 per year.  2. Dovima Born Dorothy Virginia Margaret Juba…
  • 7 Classic Hollywood Stars Who Had Plastic Surgery

    vilvintage
    12 Apr 2014 | 5:09 am
    Stars were having nips, tucks and predominantly nose-jobs from as early as the 1930s. It’s not well-documented as the stars who had succesful surgery rarely owned up to it, and those who had less successful surgery (like Mary Pickford who was rumoured to have damaged facial muscles after an early facelift) just faded from public view. Here are 7 stars who went under the knife (or needle) – can you think of any more? Marilyn Monroe Did you realise that even Marilyn Monroe had help from the plastic surgeons. As well as her platinum blonde hair, which was naturally mousey brown, she…

  • 14 Plus Size Tops We LOVE for Spring

    Marie Denee
    15 Apr 2014 | 10:12 am
    I know that I am not alone here, excited and shopping for new spring looks for my closet. A few weeks back, we featured the Plus Size Spring Trend Guide and today, I wanted to share a few tops that I have long had my eye on that I had to feature with you. At first this list was five, easily growing to ten, then boom 14. I have been on a personal journey to rock more separates in my looks and personal style, and I am finding that when I do, there is a relaxed ease about it. And with the sporty look, statement tees, crop tops topping a few of those trends, I am giddy with fashion glee. I cannot…

    A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of being interviewed for People Magazine talking about trends and the ones I loved with eloquii. Now, if you are new to my blog, then you should know that eloquii and I have a long relationship. I loved them when they launched, called them out for their opening of stores without sharing, fashioned an open letter to eloquii, announced their rebranding, and sooo much more. Basically, I care about this brand, as its success at the time meant so much more to the community then just another place to shop. SO, when they asked if I wanted to be interviewed,…

The Kenzo Eye Print.I used Essie Absolutely Shore as the base, NYC French White Tip and Milani Black Magic for the eye (done with a nail art fine brush). All it takes is a steady hand.1. Start with your base. It will need to be white or near white because it's going to become the whites of the eye.2. Paint a curved line across the middle of your nail. Don't forget to paint it with the nails facing you so it's not upside down. 3. Paint two angled lines that…

    Vicky
    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…

    In a way, everything deserves to be continually rediscovered and rearticulated. In this spirit, Miuccia Prada’s quirkiness defies the strangeness of the everyday in Miu Miu Fall 2014 Ready To Wear. Italian designer, Muccia Prada uses utilitarian pieces such as flat rubber rain boots, long raincoats in clear plastic and hooded windbreakers to confront the conventional formula of aesthetics. This kind of repurposing assumes new meaning in Ms. Prada’s hands – charismatic at ease. She claims her deliberately provocative artishood with the metal appliqués featured on plastics and pointy,…

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.

    You’ve prepped your resume, practiced possible questions, and even carefully mapped out directions to the interview. What could be missing? Your style perhaps?

I love that there are no eyeshadows or brushes used in this Loreal smoky eye tutorial.  You just need an eyeliner and your finger as a tool.  The best part? It’s quick & easy.  I’ve been using a similar method for a while now – draw & smudge.  Can’t get much easier than this.  BTW, I’m definitely going to be picking up the eyeliner.  Can’t wait to try out for myself!

All we know so far is that there will be eight pieces and the line is set to launch this September, so it will most likely have fall styles (boots, boots and MORE boots). Since the brand has been really successful with its blogger collabs in the past, like this one with Italian blogger Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad, we are really excited to what Steve Madden has come up with this time. But while you wait, check out…
  • Who Wears Short Shorts? Julianne Hough Does–And We Want Them.

    Justine Ingersoll Schwartz
    15 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    Julianne Hough is probably still recovering from her Coachella hangover--but she's doing so very stylishly, if you ask us. The dancer/actress/triple threat just stepped out in LA wearing these Pam & Gela Daisy print shorts ($195), which we are loving for spring. The printed short shorts are a welcome alternative to the denim cut-off if you feel like you're too grown to wear jorts. Pair them with a chambray shirt like Julianne's and low booties for a just-running-errands-like-a-boss look. Easy peasy. GET JULIANNE'S SHORTS HERE
  • Choker Necklaces Are #Trending Again–But Not In The 90s Way You Think

    Maria Bobila
    15 Apr 2014 | 11:30 am
    When Chanel showed off an updated version of our favorite piece of jewelry from the '90s during its Spring/Summer 2014 runway show (seen above on Miley Cyrus), we didn't realize it would set off a number look-alikes. But thankfully, that's a good thing, because not everyone prefers to wear a pair of oversized pearls on their neck. Usually in slick metals like yellow gold, silver, or rose gold (like Zoe Kravitz's choice by Balenciaga), and sometimes embellished at the ends (a la Doutzen Kroes wearing Marc Alary), these open-style necklaces that perfectly lay along your collar are nothing like…

    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!

    As I am preparing this post (this is scheduled), I keep thinking of my upcoming trip to California, mentally packing my suitcase over and over again. I told you about my essentials for those bi-annual trips to LA, but I think I am going to have to add this Sera Ulger for Malibu feather print bikini.

  • Thing Of The Week - M&S Leather Biker Jacket

    11 Apr 2014 | 6:45 am
    It isn't really a secret to anyone: I am a total sucker for a good biker jacket. Sleeves, no sleeves, black or white, who cares as long as it has zips, soft leather and provides me with the right amount of "edge". So when M&S asked me to style an item from the Britain Leading Ladies collection, I simply couldn't resist this soft white wonder. It already looked pretty rad on the site (see how I am preparing my imminent trip to California there?), but in person, it is a real dream. The leather is stunning, seriously perfect - grainy, soft and weighty. It truly has the feel of a luxury item,…

    Whenever I am interviewed, the question that keeps coming back (aside from "where does your name come from?") is "what inspires you?". My answer, invariably is "everything around me". You know I am a bit of a fashion week grump, a press day recluse and entirely anti-social when it comes to fashion related events. In summary: I don't play the game much. So I have to rely on different sources of inspiration: friends, people in the street, some magazines, films, TV shows and many other slightly more obscure sources such as architecture, landscapes and the topic of the day - animals. Main…

In my wildest dreams, I live in a much bigger house with some outside space and I get to rescue a dog or two from their life in a shelter (by the way, have you watched the Louis Theroux in L.A. documentary about dogs?

This is one of my go-to outfits, a lazy Spring staple: boyfriend jeans, white shirt (ideally cropped - I cut this one shorter), flats to run around in the day or comfortable heels and a bag of some description.

    11 Apr 2014 | 2:00 pm
    Mannequins have evolved as much as the clothing they are made to show off, incorporating trends and artistic influences decade after decade. At Ralph Pucci International, no matter how radical the shape or color of a mannequin may be, the process always begins in an old-school fashion: with an idea and a piece of clay. These are stressful times to be a mannequin. She’s under pressure to do it all—be more glamorous, more athletic and a better pitch woman. Even male mannequins are forced to be more flexible, more real. Mannequins are the latest weapons in the ever-intensifying push to…
  • Where do I go to get my broken mannequin repaired?

    5 Apr 2014 | 8:00 am
      Last month we posted this article with DIY tips on how to repair/refinish a damaged mannequin. But repairing a mannequin is a very special skill and you really need a professional if the mannequin has extensive damage like this. If your damaged mannequin was manufactured by companies like Rootstein, Patina V , Goldsmith, Greneker  or Pucci, we recommend that you send your mannequin back to them for repair. Mannequin repairing is very much a cottage industry and there are just a small handful of skill artisans around the country who provide this service. Here is a list of other…
  • 5 Fashion themed Floral Centerpieces Using Mannequin Heads

    30 Mar 2014 | 2:00 pm
      If you are looking for a dramatic centerpiece for your next event – dump the glass vase – and go with a mannequin head instead. A mannequin head provides a much broader canvas to work with than a vase. These are just a few of the examples of the way that florists are using mannequin heads (and sometimes life size mannequins) to create fashion forward displays. You can find a wide range of mannequin heads for sale at Mannequin Madness so you can create floral arrangements like these. And our Mannequins & Floral art  with a Fashion Twist  board on Pinterest has many…

    The fashion industry is not a pretty business. Here, one of its own, the former editor of Australian Vogue Kirstie Clements describes a thin-obsessed culture in which starving models eat tissues and resort to surgery when dieting isn’t enough. One of the most controversial aspects of fashion magazines, and the fashion industry, is models. Specifically, how young they are and how thin they are. It’s a topic that continues to create endless debate, in the press and in the community. As the editor of Australian Vogue, my opinion was constantly sought on these issues, and the images…

Last year, a fellow blogger posted a few times about how much she enjoyed Carol Tuttle's 'Dressing Your Truth' program.

In it, she shares photos of her daughter dressed up in each of her four types of beauty. Her daughter shares the emotions she felt when she was wearing clothes…

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…

Okay, truth be told, the cut out bulky shoes are not a thing of the present.

  • Beyoncé Channels Marilyn Monroe For Out Magazine

    Beyoncé Knowles goes platinum blonde and channeled her inner Marilyn Monroe on the cover of Out magazine’s May 2014 issue. 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…

  • Burger Joint NY

    Before we headed to New York I had been asking around for food recommendations and one place that just kept getting mentioned was Burger Joint. So before we had to head back to the airport after the trip to the MET museum we made one last stop for a burger munch. I had heard all this talk of it being located behind a red curtain and it all sounded very mysterious. Burger Joint is hidden within Le Parker Meridien hotel and when you step inside you really wouldn’t expect to find it there. There was a giant red curtain and I assumed it was behind there, but didn’t want to just start…

    On my last day in New York our flight wasn’t till late in the evening so I figured it was the perfect time to go visit one of the museums as it’s a great way to spend the day in one place and soak up some culture. I’ve been dying to go to the Metropolitan Museum Of Art aka The MET, not only to stand on the ‘Gossip Girl’ steps but to see the amazing Egyptian collections. I’m pretty much a geek when it comes to Ancient Egyptian history and even had a hieroglyphics set when I was younger and also wanted to be an archaeologist, I have no idea what happened.

    Taking a little break from New York posts, I wanted to share with you this outfit I put together with my vintage red jacket I picked up at the Mero Retro blogger event last month and also a little giveaway for all those vintage fans amongst you! What I liked about the jacket was its striking colour, gold buttons and the black panel detailing. It is also a cropped style which goes nicely with high-waisted jeans. I decided to team it with my ASOS high-waisted skinny blue denims, Melissa red and gold peep toe mini heels, a simple basic ASOS long-sleeved top and some gold jewels. I like how the…

    Being a tourist in New York is really easy as there is so much to see everywhere you go, every corner you turn reveals something new and exciting. The best way to really get a view across the whole city though is from above, yes of course I am talking about the top of the Empire State Building. I had been up the top before but Danny had never so it was a great excuse to go again! Also I discovered this time there is actually a higher floor, the 102nd floor which is 16 floors above the main observation deck which is amazing to get an even better birds eye view across the whole of New York.

    When I left you yesterday I had been for a horse and carriage ride in Central Park, followed by shopping and champagne at Saks Fifth Avenue. So how did I follow that up? Well we had booked dinner at STK Midtown before we left the UK, I have been meaning to try STK in London for some time and not quite got round to it, so when I discovered they had a branch in NYC I definitely wanted to try it out. STK as you may have guessed is a lot of steak, my favourite of course. I had heard such good reviews of STK and especially their mini Wagyu burgers. I got ready at the hotel and put on my Wildfox…

O local escolhido para a apresentação da coleção foi um antigo prédio perto do cais do porto do Rio, onde as modelos podiam caminhar para cima e para baixo em uma longa passarela.Enquanto os estilistas foram buscar inspiração no México para as formas e estampas que encontraremos nas lojas, a beleza contou com uma pele limpa, cabelo com pouco volume e movimento e cores sóbrias.

Na terça-feira de tarde, quando arrumava minha bolsa para o primeiro dia de desfiles, cheguei à duas conclusões:1- Quem trabalha na cobertura do evento não pode se dar ao luxo de usar uma bolsa pequena.2- A neurose de precisar de alguma coisa e não tê-la a mão é tamanha que pensei que a arrumação da minha bolsa valia um post para o blog.Além da cobertura para o blog, estarei gravando com as blogueiras do BoutiqueB Online para o nosso canal do You Tube (já…

    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).

    New to the UAE and wondering what to wear on a night out in Dubai? Last night I attended an event at the newly opened GQ Bar at the JW Marriott Marquis in Downtown Dubai. 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 .

    Marianna Boguslavsky
    7 Apr 2014 | 9:53 pm
    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,…

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…

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…

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 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…

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…

    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…

    Several years ago, I used to always tune in to project runway watching up and coming designers going at it with each other for the overall grand prize on the show.  Some of the designers on the show are well established within their hometowns, but they’re not known on a national scale.  It’s no surprise that some of them move on to bigger and better projects after the show and even gain more popularity along the way. Michael Costello appeared on Season 8 on project runway and has become a hometown hero in Palm Springs ever since.  This is the place where he opened his first…

    Last month in December 2013, I celebrated my birthday. I had a theme and called it 14kt Gold since that Saturday (the day of the event) was actually the 14th. I haven’t had a birthday celebration where I invited friends since I was a kid, so this time around I wanted to be amongst the company of close friends. The theme color was red and gold and I encouraged everyone to wear one of the colors. There was a reserved private dining space at an Italian restaurant held for me that day along with surprises planned  by very close friends. I also held an event at Blue Martini for more friends to…

    This holiday season, a lot of colors have popularity but not as much as the color red.  Red is a color of statement and nothing makes a statement more than adding red to your ensemble.  One of the items I wanted to focus on is a sexy pump from one of my favorite shoe designers.   Let me introduce you to Christian Louboutin Completa Red patent leather pumps.  If you are offended by major toe cleavage, then this shoe is not for you.  I adore this pump, and not because of its color but because of the style.  I like the deep asymmetrical cut in the toe area that makes it far from any…

This checking is done as there is some risk involved for the companies that offer this service and also for the network if they offer any sort of plan to the individuals with poor credit standing. A cell phone contract plan is similar to any other finance and in this type of plan the cell phone dealer will be purchasing the cell phone handset at a higher cost price and then will provide it to you for free expecting that it will get him more profits.

For me the tape starts off strong, kind of falls off in the middle, and picks back up in the end. Overall definitely some unique music from the young in’s.

Sometimes inspiration is all you need when tackling a big mess- we’re hoping to provide you with some storage motivation to get it going! 1: Creative storage in small spaces: If you have awkward spaces in your closet where you think a plastic storage bin wouldn’t fit or even any bin for that matter, try using a smaller- more flexible drawer system. A good kind of drawer would be a wicker basket. These kinds of drawers can hold a good about of items and are flexible enough to fit into weird spaces…

    Those loose pants are going to be my next big love! So comfortable, ethereal, cool that can make even the simplest outfit looking stylish. I think they are so dynamic that can be your “seal” for the way you dress. They can give you a rock attitude and match the rebellious side of your character or you can wear them in office and feel like your rule everyone! Even for a bohemian outfit for a long lazy walk with your “gang” those loose pants are perfect. Also ideal for hiding those extra pounds in all the wrong places and that’s a big advantage for choosing them. We saw them a lot…

    Although most people think that high heels, miniskirts and tight dresses are essential for fashionable outfits I avoid them because they make me feel uncomfortable while walking (and standing and sitting and…being!) so I choose harlem pants, relaxed tops and flat shoes. The weather is getting warmer so we all get rid of all those layers over layers of clothes (if you only knew how many clothes I wear when I feel cold!) and slip on soft, light garments. And shower shoes…you know they are gonna be a great hit for this summer. Laugh as much as you want, I thought I should give them a…

    Makeup brushes are our beauty weapons so we have to take care of them well. 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. After its wet drop on your palm a little bit of the soap you use to clean your face and gently rub the brush on your arm. Dish soap and olive oil in a mix is…

    Never heard of Trunk Club? Check out parts one and two of this review series, then come back and read part three. In the first part of my Trunk Club review, I explained what the company does and expressed concern over whether the system would work for shorter, smaller guys. Based on reviews from other bloggers and the fact that the clothing industry hates doesn’t cater to short men, I had very little hope for Trunk Club. Part two of the series showcased the clothes from the first trunk, which were generally too big and baggy for me. But I said I’d give Trunk Club at least two…

    Quick Update: You may have noticed the Ribbed Tee ad on the right sidebar of the site. I’ve been wearing these undershirts for a few weeks, and they’re just plain better than other undershirts. Definitely worth checking out if you want a high quality undershirt that is comfortable and stays tucked in. Also, the retrofit is a great length for shorter guys (after a wash). Welcome to the part two of my Trunk Club review. In part one, I wrote about setting up my Trunk Club profile and discussing my clothing preferences and sizes with Lisa, the personal stylist assigned to my account.

    I was recently contacted by a marketing rep from a Chicago-based company called Trunk Club. She asked if I’d be interested in becoming a customer and reviewing their service. I’ve heard of Trunk Club, but I don’t know anyone who’s actually tried it, so I decided to give it a go and document the experience here on The Modest Man. After all, my mission is to help men 5’8″ and under dress better, and to that end I’m always down for trying new things. The service if free to try, so I didn’t receive any compensation or incentive to do this. What Is…
  • 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.
