    Courtesy of Gwyneth Paltrow Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t do anything halfway, and that includes playing cowgirl for a week.

    If you’re anything like us, in between contouring, concealing and rushing out the door, you forget that makeup brushes need a little TLC, too. The reason: You’ll avoid bacteria build-up on the bristles, which can lead to clogged pores and endless breakouts. (And who wants that?!) We know what you're thinking: Just another thing to add to the chore list—but don't worry, because we're keeping it quick and easy for you! Just check out the steps below: Run your brushes under lukewarm water to rinse out any residual makeup. Lather bristles with a gentle shampoo like Johnson’s Baby Shampoo.

    When a film calls for a beautiful actress to temporarily not look like a beautiful actress, filmmakers are met with a conundrum. There's a fine line they need to toe. They don't want to go all Charlize Theron in Monster, with the prosthetics and fake teeth, but the actress needs to look like she's made some sort of transformation. "How do we make this gorgeous woman look like she's wanting for male attention and a trip to Sephora?" they ask. The solution, it seems, is to simply slap an ugly sweater on old girl and call it a day. Read more...

    You’ve heard of Spenco insoles, but did you know they make supportive sandals designed to alleviate foot problems such as plantar fasciitis, over-pronation, forefoot pain and more? I’ve talked about Vionic flip-flops recently, and they’re terrific for problem feet, but the price tag on some styles can be a turn off.  The more affordable alternative is the Spenco Total Support Yumi sandal from FootSmart.com. I’m surprised at how supportive the Spenco Yumi is because it’s so incredibly lightweight. The contoured footbed with deep heel cup looks like cork, but is…

But it’s my job to be excited about cute, comfortable shoes and then turn around and tell you about them. Andrea liked the Jambu Clementine because it provided…

    Hallux limitus/rigidus, bunion and plantar fasciitis sufferers, look what I’ve found! A cute, European-made sandal with a rigid sole to keep those toes from flexing too far, adjustable straps to accommodate bunions, good arch support and a cushioned cork/latex footbed. A reviewer describes them as “flatforms” meaning the rise from toe to heel is subtle, not drastic–the heel measures approximately 2 1/4″ with a 1 1/4″ platform. The slightly inclined forefoot and beveled heel serve to propel the foot through the stride. After reading online reviews, I gather…

I thought, “Is this a thing in the south?” Had I become callous to glitter in my sensible midwest surroundings? Was I growing too old for such frivolity? Perhaps. But when I saw these sparkly sandals by Vionic at the local comfort shoe store, I kicked off my humdrum Birkenstocks and ordered up a pair of silver sequined Vionic flip-flops in size 10.

  • The most mentioned brand in 'Sex & the City' is... Vogue

    23 Jul 2014 | 4:18 am
    During their six years on the small screen, Carrie Bradshaw and her friends entertained us while educating us in the ways of urban fashion and consumerism. Somewhat unsurprisingly, the fashion magazine Vogue claimed the most mentions. If you thought Manolo Blahnik was the name most frequently cited by Carrie, Miranda, Charlotte and Samantha, think again. The ultimate reference for fashionistas, the magazine topped the ranking with 36 mentions in total, mainly thanks to Carrie Bradshaw's brief employment at the magazine.

    17 Jul 2014 | 9:55 am
    I’m not a big crier.Sure, I cry, but it’s not something my kids see very often. Let’s put it this way, when I do cry in front of them, it’s for or because of a really good reason.Monday night we were heading back from Disney’s EPCOT to the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The shuttle was packed solid, so we all had to break-up and half of us had to stand. Fortunately there was one empty seat, so I was able to sit down with Victoria. The shuttle was dark, so she was clawing me the whole time. I felt so bad because she was so scared, but really being a good girl about it.

I was an athlete throughout my youth and it’s just wonderful to see that continuation of sports – the team aspect, the togetherness, the determination, the hard work and the competitiveness now in my own children. It was something that was my anchor as a youth and it was a huge…

    If I had my way, I would have a 100+ slides all on Emma Watson and how amazing she is. Actually, I would make you a PowerPoint and sell you the idea of her. She's that cool. Before you assume, I'll just tell you: I'm a Harry Potter freak. I first got into the books my sophomore year of high school (late bloomer, I know) and I could re-read the series over and over again with no complaints. So it was only a matter of time before I wanted to be Hermione, and by transitive property that means Emma Watson. Girlfriend is #flawless in every sense of the word. The fact that she can be looked at…

    Back in February, Jeremy Scott debuted his first collection as head designer of Moschino. No one was surprised that it was kitschy and quirky, but what the world was not expecting to see was McDonald's at Fashion Week. However, Anna Della Russo, Queen Street Style Star, gave the golden arches her stamp of approval, and that's when fast food fashion became a certified fall trend. But besides getting praise from editors and street style subjects, fast food fashion also popped up on the fall runways of Anya Hindmarch (handbags that look like bags of chips and cereal boxes), Kate Spade (Chinese…

Not only is it the trendy "I'm a health nut" thing to eat, it' also showing up on clothing and even in beauty products. Just the other day, we found Lea Michele's 'Kale' tank top (Obvi she eats kale. Have you seen her bod?!) and then, when we found out about Nails Inc's NailKale, we were fascinated. Is kale a beauty secret we've all been missing out on?

August is the HOTTEST month in the year: so go all out with your deodorant. Dressing for work in the heat can be tricky, but we have the answer: shorts. Yes, you read that right, you can wear shorts to work.

Understanding the benefits of being vegetarian makes the diet that much more appealing.

Although nothing has been officially confirmed by the brand or Justin’s people, the rumours don’t seem that far fetched, as the singer has posted numerous selfies of himself on Twitter and…

  • Summer savings: budget-friendly bomber jackets for kids

    Courtney Strimel
    24 Jul 2014 | 10:00 pm
    With hot, muggy summer in full swing, it feels a little wrong thinking about back-to-school shopping right now. Jackets? In July? With so many great end-of-summer sales going right now, though, it just might pay off to be a bit proactive on that fall shopping. One of the hottest trends for kids last spring was the bomber. Going into fall, bomber jackets for kids are just as hot, if not hotter. If you didn’t pick one up a few months ago (or if they outgrew them), this is a fantastic time to buy and save on a style they’ll be wanting as soon as cool weather hits. For boys or for…

    I love wearing color but sometimes, I prefer to go easy and just wear a simple black or white outfit or black and white printed outfit that can go anywhere I go. This summer opt for something simple and chic like a black jumpsuit with a pair of bright pink sandals or a white and black striped maxi dress with wedges that will look fabulous at Sunday brunch.  From left to right, top to bottom: Hive & Honey Giana Soft Romper, $89, at piperlime.com Sunkissed Stripe Shorts, $49.95, at gap.com Peplum Tee, $29.50, at victoriassecret.com Lou & Grey Cabana Stripe Dress, $79.50, at loft.com…

    Jennifer Davidson
    23 Jul 2014 | 4:12 am
    #476395535 / gettyimages.com Once at the top of every fashion “don’t” list, socks worn with sandals or heels are now a major fashion “do.” Shown on runways, like Hermes and Band of Outsiders, and on the stylish feet of such celebs as Rihanna and Beyonce, it’s hard to ignore the sock-and-sandal trend. To get the look, invest in a few pairs of pretty ankle socks to dress up a neutral pointed toe pump or a sexy ankle strap sandal. You can also try wearing them with flat sandals, like this season’s sporty sandal trend, just be sure to choose…

    It’s been a crazy week. Everyone in the house is sick. But still a lot is going on! I really want to keep the momentum going and share with you something that I’ve been thinking about lately. White boots. I generally start thinking about the pair of boots I’m going to buy for the year around August. So, I’m a little early this year, being that it’s the end of July. That said, as I was pulling together my inspiration board (yes, I do that), I noticed a trend among the runways. White boots. These aren’t your Go-Go white boots of years past, they are somehow…
  • Why the “Not-Feminist” Feminist Trend Is Frightening

    jennine
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:19 pm
    When I think of “Not-Feminists,” usually images of older men, probably not very educated. Older women, like from my grandmother’s generation. Some people who didn’t go to college, or maybe high school. Hillbillies. The religious right. Sarah Palin types. What’s disturbing is the new generation of Anti-Feminists are young women. Young women with careers. Seemingly educated. They also believe that they should have the right to vote. They believe in “equality.” They believe they can be whatever they want without feminist principles. Via Women Against…

    22 Jul 2014 | 12:45 pm
    I have fine hair that blows in the wind. Or, even minor changes in the movement of air, my hair will move. I guess that’s great for some things, but for having bangs, wild hair has its disadvantages. For years, I had no idea what my bangs would do as soon as I stepped out the door. So, I talked to my hairdresser about my issue, and he gave me some inspirations. He didn’t tell me to do what I do, but he did make a recommendation that inspired me to try this method of taming my wild bangs. Hint: It’s all in the roots. Other hint: Watch this video! ;) Eek. I always get nervous…

I just about fell out of my chair! You know, one of those moments when your ovaries burst? That happened. Then getting lost in a Pinterest spiral, I kept finding more and more photos of the family McCartney. So much love! You could really see it in the photos. We all love our babies, our parents, our siblings, etc. but how often are we able to capture that…

    Looks from left: Armani Prive, Schiaparelli, Atelier Versace, Giambattista Valli, Alexandre Vauthier For Fall 2014, the Giambattista Valli girl is pretty much the same as she is every season: an eccentric with a large stash o' cash.  If she's "excessively chic" as Vauthier characterizes his collection, the she's probably got him on speed-dial as well. As always, glam was on the menu at Atelier Versace, but with a 50s feel soaked in J. Lo sex appeal - an interesting twist. For his second Schiaparelli couture collection, Marco Zanini concluded, apparently, that last season's decision to avoid…

    Sometimes literally, as with this ankle boot by Montreal designer Anastasia Radevich. The warning of This Will Destroy You, Lost Civilizations (F/W 2012) is certainly interesting, but the important message is the medium which made this shoe/heel possible: accessible 3D printing. The intersection of technology and design is manifesting in two particularly interesting ways: "Firstly, fashion designers utilize technology to create new and exciting aesthetic possibilities," observe Margarita Benitez and Noël Palomo-Lovinski, curators of Shifting Paradigms: Fashion + Technology at Kent State…

    Do you really want a new wardrobe every six months? Does the way a dress fits have to satisfy what society considers "beautiful"? Where does wearable tech - like Google Glass - fit into fashion? These dilemmas are being pondered in a new fashion exhibition that will soon go live at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in the Netherlands. The Future of Fashion is Now will use examples from designers including Viktor & Rolf (the Netherlands), Christophe Coppens (Belgium), Hussein Chalayan (Cyprus) and Rejina Pyo (Korea), a group that takes an outsidery approach to the fashion system, focusing on…

    “There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it causes hunger and unhappiness.” This observation by Gandhi is probably more valid now than when he originally made it. For example, half of us currently live on but a few dollars a day (according to 2007's UN Human Development Report) and at least 1 billion of us are faced with drinking-water scarcity. Water consumption is one of the fashion industry's anti-superpowers: the textile industry is one of the Top 5 consumers of water (just behind paper and oil), in particular, cotton crops - over 90% of which is for use in textiles.

    Angie
    25 Jul 2014 | 3:51 am
    This ensemble was inspired by four magnificent neutrals that are finally coming together for Fall 2014. We’ve seen black and grey dominate retail for many, many seasons. Dark blue made a stylish return a few years ago and continues to gain momentum. And brown is making a fashionable comeback after laying low for seven years.  The point of the ensemble is to wear all four neutrals in one outfit. This is a very 2014 look because gone are the days when it was considered a faux pas to wear black with brown, or black with dark blue. Don’t worry about it. Just wear it. Paira dark blue…

As a busy Mum-on-the-Go her lifestyle is extra casual, which means practical outfits that are comfortable, on trend and fun. No heels, dresses or skirts unless it’s a special occasion.  In this post Bridget is sharing two more of her casual outfits that work well for a Seattle Summer. Both combine new and older pieces, which is something she enjoys to do.  Bridget took to the oversized upscale sweatshirt…

Read the rave reviews.  Shimera Two-Way Seamless Tank (2 for $30): This is my new favourite camisole because it's seamless and has built-up shoulders that cover your bra strap. It's made of a nylon spandex which I've felt very comfortable wearing under sheer tops in hot weather. It launders beautifully and does not shrink in the dryer. It looks pristine and polished. And it is sufficiently long for tall gals. I bought two in…

I have to say my first impression is very positive. The breathable 3 in 1 baby carrier is perfect for summer. Much cooler than my other favorite soft structured carriers, for both me and my baby. The mesh material lets the air flow through so we don’t get nearly as sweaty. I’ve had a LOT of people say “How can you have that baby on you in this heat?!” and I tell them all about the MyCarrier Cool.

      Sometimes a skirt is just too cute to pass up, and must be purchased in violation of one of the cardinal wardrobe rules, which is to avoid buying a component piece without a matching piece to make an outfit (either one you already own or one you are purchasing as a companion piece to the first). With this purchase comes the challenge: what to wear with the skirt?   The easiest solution is just to buy something then and there so you can evaluate fit and color, and find something that matches really well with the skirt you want. This is doubly good as you can also think about…

Within 2 weeks of use, I noticed that without makeup on, not only was my jawline more defined, I could actually see more definition in my cheekbones.

I'm very much into masks and my new favorite overall mask is this Shiseido 'Benefiance' Firming Massage Mask ($48 at Nordstrom). The mask itself is a wonderful creamy texture with some tiny granules for gentle exfoliating. But the key to its magic is the facial massage steps that help firm your skin and prevent future wrinkles. The Japanese (and French) are big on the facial massage. Asians usually have great skin and trust me, if you ask an Asian gal if she does facial massages,…

    admin
    24 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Founded nearly a decade and a half ago by a leather crafter and a designer working together to create boots that were both well-conceived and well-made, the Old Gringo brand combines old-school vintage handcrafting with cutting-edge style. Bridging the gap between ‘western’ and ‘couture’, these high-quality boots represent the perfect crossover of form and function. There are a number of reasons to love Old Gringo boots.

    admin
    17 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    Buying a cowboy hat is a long-term investment, so it is important to establish good care practices from the start. Whether it’s straw or felt, the proper care techniques are key to extending the life of your hat, preserving its original quality, and maintaining its shape. Here are the 4 basic things to keep in mind when caring for your cowboy hat. How to Handle Your Hat Never put surface pressure on the brim of your cowboy hat; this includes setting the hat brim side down on a flat surface. This will cause the hat to lose shape or collapse. Additionally, avoid handling the brim with your…

  • How the Ten-Gallon Hat Got Its Name

    admin
    10 Jul 2014 | 10:00 am
    The cowboy hat is one of our best-selling items here at Allens Boots. Natives love ‘em, and visitors want to take ‘em home—after all, they’re a vital part of the classic western outfit. And apart from the word “Stetson”, the most famous phrase associated with cowboy hats is the “ten-gallon hat.” But why is it called a ten-gallon hat? Most folks don’t know, and the answer may surprise you. First, let’s get one thing out of the way: a ten-gallon cowboy hat won’t hold ten gallons of anything. (Think about putting 10 one-gallon milk jugs into the crown of a hat. That’s a…

    25 Jul 2014 | 11:01 am
    The official trailer for 50 Shades of Grey debuted yesterday and it caused just the tiniest bit of buzz. I've never actually read the book and hadn't planned on clicking on the clip until the name of fashion journalism got me moving. Since then, I've watched it a half dozen times (sometimes with the sound off to feel less creepy, FYI) and have some fashion insights I want to share: The color gray is worn approximately 21 times. From Christian's power suits to the hoodie he wears while running in the rain to the robe Anastasia's covered in while he's carrying her toward the end, there's a lot.

Iggy Azalea (she, who is so Fancy) is taking the reigns from Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls and will host the eight-episode season. While she's not an obvious choice, here's why it could work. According to MTV, "House of Style will chronicle how the fashion industry evolves alongside music and technology—who better to take us through this evolution than I-G-G-Y?" Sounds good to me!

  • Review: JORD Wood Watches

    Lindsay Ginn
    16 Jul 2014 | 3:34 pm
    Wood is an underused material in fashion, if you ask me. Before a few years ago, wood didn’t have much more than a cameo as a purse handle or, bless, toggles on a terrible winter coat. Recently, though, a shift in perspective has been hitting the consumer market. Sustainability is becoming cool, and along with the eco-movement comes a new appreciation for wood as a fashionable material, creating everything from wooden sunglasses to watches from various sustainably-harvested trees.

    Scrolling past this bracelet wasn’t an option. Typically, I’m scared off by faux diamonds or anything too gemstone-y, but these “starry crystals” embedded in the brass pendants don’t bother me. In fact, I kind of get them. (A first!) This bracelet also looks like it would do some good jingling. If you’re not into jingling, this might not be the right investment for you, but if you have tons of nervous energy and a penchant for percussive accessories, then this might be your lucky day!

  • 15 Of The Most Outrageously Stupid Responses To The “Dear White People” Movie Trailer (And Smart Responses To Them)

    The Frisky
    25 Jul 2014 | 12:25 pm
    A new film called “Dear White People” swept accolades at the Sundance Film Festival and is making its way to theaters this fall. To market the comedy, a trailer was released recently that has since been viewed over a million times on YouTube and has also received thousands of comments. I mistakenly read through some of them. Since I did and was horrified, I wanted to extend a piece of advice to The Frisky readers: cease and desist from writing a comment about the “Dear White People” movie trailer before reading this list. I urge you to do this, not at my behest, but to save…

    When Nas became the first rapper invited to trace his family tree through the PBS series “Finding Your Roots,” he welcomed the opportunity. But it hit him hard when he saw 1859 documentation of an ancestor being sold as a slave, he said during a panel discussion Wednesday. “First I was enraged when I looked at the bill of sale,” Nas said. “I was like, that guy that owned property owes me some cash. My people made him really wealthy, so maybe I should find his family and talk.” The unearthed information made him think about his ancestors’ contribution…

    Charles Michael Davis posed for the cameras while attending the Television Critics awards press tour. For the event, Charles wore a G-Star Raw chino jacket with a pair of Joe’s Jeans Brixton jeans in Gray Skies and a single pocket relaxed fit shirt in white. I really like the color combinations in this look, I think the dark blue looks nice paired with the darker gray and the chino fabric is a nice switch up from a denim jacket.

    The color of the moment, grey, is popping up everywhere. I came across this pair by Joe’s Jeans that quickly had my jaw drop with how perfect they got the wash. When grey is done right, it becomes one that is versatile and just as easy to wear as the blues and blacks. Not only do I find the wash of these jeans to be beautiful, the fit is also amazing. I am used to seeing Joe’s with a higher rise, so with the slightly lower rise and slim fit, this is a pair that even Kate Moss would try and get her hands on. What do you think of this new style by Joe’s? You can click here to…

  • Teal Traina Suit - 1966

    10 Jul 2014 | 4:12 am
    Here's another good example of a fashion trying to bridge the gap between classic clients and the newer Mod looks for the younger generation in 1966.  Venerable old New England department store Jordan Marsh placed this full page ad in Harper's Bazaar.  The dinner suit by Teal Traina is made from a fabulous brocade with a large scale pattern and has a shorter skirt length to appeal to the younger woman.  The choice of the dark tights, gloves and helmet hat are trying to appeal to the Teal Traina and Jordan Marsh client of the past.  What you end up with is a muddled…
  • Monte-Sano and Pruzan Suit, 1966

    9 Jul 2014 | 3:43 am
    Monte-Sano and Pruzan was a high-end maker of tailored suits and coats based in New York.  For the Fall of 1966, they embrace the Mod era with a marvelous wool check enhanced with gold lurex threads for sparkle.  The knee-grazing length of the skirt would still appeal to the company's classic clients by being just mini enough, as would the appearance of the gloves in the photo.  Remember though, most women had abandoned wearing gloves by this time.  There is no notation of who made the shoes, but aren't they wonderful?Photo by John Engstead for I.

    Hi-low hemlines....they've been around for years and years.  For spring of 1963, Balenciaga created this gorgeous gown.  The hemline exposes the ankle in front and lengthens to form a train in back.  Note how the designer echoes that line at the hip where the skirt attaches to the bodice.  What you can't see here is that he also echoes it at the neckline, which is high in front but dips to a low U in the back.  The dress shown in this picture was not made in the Balenciaga workrooms, however.  It is an authorized copy made in the US by Nanty and sold at such high…

    Black is the color of power. The Nashville commercial photographer, Victoria Beckham and some teenage fashion blogger, are all into the black color. The darker shade is always in style by being improved by designers and huge fashion houses, all around the world. The Tribeca Film festival of this year, called 2014, the black year of fashion. And there is nothing pessimistic or negative about the statement, as this color is simply fashionable. Vera Wang even has a black wedding dress and there are black buildings in the New York City.

    Making a living doing what you love is important. I've had the privilege of working in the communications field for over 18 years and I'm passionate about my work. Working in the fashion business, it's likely you're living your dream as well. I've yet to meet a designer who isn't passionate about fashion, her designs and her customers. Yet that enthusiasm less often extends to the other, less creative aspects of running a business.

A pair of perfect, cotton twill Nanette Lepore black pants, with either a side or back zipper. I think they were $200 - more than I had ever spent on a pair of pants, and unfortunately the store only had them in that, "one size too small, squeeze your crotch size", or "one size too big, gap in the back size."

    Miranda Kerr keeps her crop top casual with baggy boyfriend jeans and Birkenstocks.  I included the exact same Birkenstocks  below which usually run for about $120.  You can easily get a similar slide for way less but I personally think that if you’re going to jump on the Birkenstock band wagon it might as well be with the real deal.  They’re so so comfy and they last forever!

    I can’t believe the kids start school in less than four weeks! The summer has flown by and while it wasn’t the most eventful it was one of the happiest because Joseph has brought us all closer together and changed our lives forever.  Hope everyone is having an amazing week! Found this army green vest on sale at Shopbop. Plan to layer it up this fall. Rediscovering Blue’s Clues with Joseph. My William, who’s going to be 16 in October, was a die hard Blues Clues fan. He carried around a little notebook all the time and had me draw clues every where we went. When he was…

    Zoe Saldana is reportedly expecting twins and I’m sure her pregnancy style will be just as amazing as her pre-pregnancy style (click here to see some of my pregnancy style). I picked this outfit to do a copycat because it can be easily worn during pregnancy in several ways. You can wear with the skirt for a date night and during the day with leggings and a blazer.

    I’ve always loved mens fashion just as much as women’s, even more so now that I have five boys. My boys are the type of kids that will wear anything I say. I’ve never been pushy with my opinion they just naturally naviagte towards me and listen to my advice. They have great taste but they always seem to come to me for final approval and I find it so sweet. Think about that for a sec, I dress 4 ( 5 if you count Joseph) guys every single day of the week. When I say I know and love mens fashion, I’m not kidding. Not only do I dress my boys, but I also dress my husband.

But before I tell you all about them, first let me take a selfie… Being the self-appointed President of Shoeaholics Anonymous, I first got distracted by the shoes.

    eye4style
    23 Jul 2014 | 1:49 pm
    While I wouldn't call myself a habitual off-price shopper, an expert shopper I am - that I'm confident in. I'm a member of every imaginable flash sale site, I hit the sample sale rounds in NYC regularly, and scan the racks of my local TJ Maxx more often that I'd like to admit (#maxxinista alert!). And through all of that shopping, it's become glaringly apparent to me that there are several well-designed, well-loved contemporary brands that I'll never need to pay full price for - including several of my go-to brands. Whether it's because their mark-up is extreme, or they're over-producing,…

I feel overwhelmed by STUFF (HELLO, see evidence above - a recent and thoroughly embarrassing snap of my closet), yet it's hard to let go of once-loved pieces, particularly those in amazing, like-new condition. Thankfully, CottonBin hit my radar and while I might still consign my pristine designer handbags and shoes, this start-up - essentially an online boutique populated with amazing pre-loved apparel - allows me, and more importantly YOU, to easily swap…

Created by Flash Tattoos, these jewelry-inspired transfers feel gloriously summery and sexy. Available in thematic sets ranging from subtle to bold, ethnic to biker babe, I love the idea of layering these under your favorite jewelry pieces to add an element of surprise.  Flash Tattoos are easy to apply, though as is often the case, four hands will…

    Just the anticipation of cooler weather makes me giddy. Fall bound! Well, not quite — but for one week. And I'll take it. I am about to enter early fall temps. A week of vaca for the summer. I am beyond thrilled it will be spent in a cooler climate after spending six weeks at lacrosse tournaments in crazy heat. Sizzling heat. So yes, I am ready. The easiest way to slip into the upcoming season is with simple basics that give good punch. Like a short sleeve cashmere sweater by Annapurna. So many colors to choose from. Luxury in simple solids!

    I am no stranger to scarves. If I'm being honest, I have a little addiction. Time of year makes no difference. I love scarves anytime, from anywhere and for any occasion. When I find a good one, I share. So I must pass on this featherweight cotton-voile scarf from Rose & Rose. The frayed style has been hand-loomed and embroidered in India. Which makes it special, along with the high contrast colors — bright pink against white. Love! Available at Net-a-Porter

    I can't believe it. I have found a match to my favorite mascara! Bobbi Brown has definitely created something special with her Smokey Eye mascara. This formula promises thicker, fuller and bolder lashes — and definitely delivers. It stays put all day without smudging, smearing or flaking.  Smokey Eye mascara builds volume, lash by lash, by way of the brilliant brush which combs through eyelashes from roots to tips. The result is stretched-out lashes in an instant. Eyes that draw attention! Thank you, Bobbi. This mascara, I love.

Industrial production has been a means of reaching a wider audience for the designer and artist. Through his use of resin, PVC packaging and organic shapes, Pesce has created over the years - with manufacturers such as Cassina, B&B Italia and Zerodisegno -  some of the most meaningful pieces of Italian design.

It is very much the spearhead of Maserati's push into new markets and sales.

    24 Jul 2014 | 11:06 am
    We all know the importance of staying hydrated, but for some, chugging 8-10 glasses of water per day can be monotonous. You should still try and intake 8 glasses of water everyday, because it is the #1 way to hydrate yourself. But, here are 3 other *creative* ways you can boost your hydration, too! 1. Drink more juice with high amounts of H2O Try: Immunity Booster Juice 2. Drink more tea (try ditching your morning coffee for a green tea, and having 1 decaf cup before bed!) Try: Mint Tea with Nana 3. Ice pops, using fruit high in water like watermelon! Try: Watermelon & Lime Ice Pops What…

  • Modern Rococo

    14 Jul 2014 | 5:53 pm
    I got this dress at the tail end of summer last year, and didn't get a chance to wear it until now. It was one of those chance finds at Buffalo Exchange, I was in and out of the store in five minutes, and didn't even try it on, but this is too good to pass up. The stripes, the rococo bodice, and the sweep! The thing is massive. I feel like a modern day Marie Antoinette would be right at home in this frock, it's pretty grand when a gust of wind catches the skirt. I can imagine some silver hair piled high would accentuate it beautifully. Dress-Marc Jacobs via Buffalo Exchange

I want the same quality, the same craftsmanship, and I want things made here, in the U.S. Originally I was going to start a feature here on American made clothing for women, but after toying with the idea I decided the concept deserved it's own platform. So I started a sister blog, American Threads.

    There are lots of red lipstick tutorials out there (or pink, or purple, or whatever), but this is my personal favorite method. I adapted it from a beauty book I loved when I was in my early teens. It really stays put, thanks to all the layering and a solid foundation. I can have a meal, drink, completely wipe my lips and barely need a touch up after.Use a cream lipstick rather than a matte. Matte will just dry out, and cream offers a larger variety of reds anyway.

My key piece for dressing down this look? A denim vest. I paired mine over my favorite silk cami. Then I used tan accessories for a more laid-back vibe. I’ve also been obsessed with layering delicate gold necklaces this summer. I wear this S one basically every day (it was a present from my mom). And today, I added in a solid bar and jagged pendant.

    25 Jul 2014 | 1:25 pm
    In February, TMZ obtained footage of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice in a domestic dispute with his then-fianceé Janay Palmer. The disturbing video showed Rice knock her out cold at an Atlantic City hotel. As a result, the NFL has banned him from two games in the 2014 season. "The league is an entity that depends on integrity and in the confidence of the public, and we simply cannot tolerate conduct that endangers others or reflects negatively on our game," wrote NFL commissioner Roger Goodell in a letter to Rice.

  • Beauty Buys Tough Enough For A Trip Down Fury Road

    If you’re living in a dystopian wasteland where pretty much all resources are scarce, it can be near impossible to keep up your beauty or grooming routine. Well, okay, that's at least what we gathered from the recently released stills and poster for Mad Max: Fury Road starring Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy. Scheduled for a May 2015 release — though rumors abound that tomorrow's Comic-Con panel will bring teaser footage and a possible trailer, so stay tuned for those — Fury Road was shot in the hot, dusty Namibian desert (standing in for Australia’s Outback).

Some fans thought Jamie Dornan's smoldering stares were spot on. Others debated that producers had stripped him of his stone-cold virility when they chose to shave his face and chest, rending the smoking-hot Dornan hairless and neutered. Well, Christian Grey does exercise control in all things. Why wouldn't body-hair maintenance be one of them? The most common complaint, though, will forever come those firmly on Team Hunnam. This…

    Adriana Degreas 2015 SS SwimwearAdriana Degreas says that her swimwear is not made to get wet. And her Summer 2015 collection comes to reiterate this idea with a beautiful and very sexy beachwear for powerful women, who do not go to any beach.

The highlight is the parts with lycra laser-cut applied in tulle with a lace effect created from the pattern of swans -- the main print of the brand this season.What do you think of the line?

    I find this Jantzen label so intriguing. This is the latest label to hit our vintage swimwear label reference on Glamoursurf. Jantzen is a favorite brand of mine and I did a double take when I saw this label. It dates between 1921-1922. Jantzen established itself in Portland, Oregon in 1916. The iconic diving girl was added to swimwear in 1923, and is missing from this label. Although it does have a patent date, that does not mean the suit dates to 1921 (but pretty close). Jantzen applied the patent verbiage to many early suits, but the classic 'diving girl' image is missing from this…

This would be easy to do for a vintage swimsuit bottom that may have a couple of challenges. Hmmmm, I just may have to try this. What do you think? Using vintage ties of the same period would be beyond fabulous.

    When creating an outfit, I like to style around a single statement piece.  Usually this piece is a cute, embroidered top, a chunky necklace or a fun printed cardigan. Basically, I spend a lot of time focusing on the top half of my body and forget pants can make an effective statement as well, which is why I love the Dapple Trousers from Anthropologie. The richness of the deep red with the beige polka dots gives the pants a sophisticated tone with a touch a playfulness. The color and pattern mixed with the high waist and traditional trouser cut make a great fit for the office. I also like the…

Perhaps it was from a lesson on Pointillism or maybe you remember it from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. When poet Rebecca Watts tried her hand at an ekphrastic poem, a piece speaking about or inspired by a work of visual art, she felt Seurat’s painting was perfect.

Everything in Victoriana, from the tiniest button to the largest mansion, exhibits unique and well-crafted design. Victorian books are no exception to this rule. There are so many reasons to collect and cherish these texts from an aesthetic standpoint. First off, they look extremely enticing gathered together on a shelf or a table. Second, even when they’re in a state of delicate decay, Victorian books and their covers…

Flats were the footwear women secretly changed out of before walking into a major event, and then changed back into when the night was over. Now, flats are in, and can look just as stylish as a fabulous pair of heels. Here are some flats that will keep you looking glam while wearing that cocktail dress. Try pointy flats that add a bit of sophistication to the casual flat, or solid colorblocking to spice it up a bit. Pour la Victoire Add…

According to recent reports, Pablo Schreiber's infamous bad-boy character on the show, George "Pornstache" Mendez, might not be in season three. Of course, Pornstache is a hilarious presence, but we're going to go ahead and say it: we're not going to miss him. And it's not because he's so evil. It's because Pablo Schreiber looks so hot without a mustache. Maybe we never noticed before because we were so focused on John Bennett, aka actor Matt McGorry.

    Frantic But Fabulous

  • Personal style definitions: Sporty

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    22 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Can’t tell classic style from chic? Not sure what “boho” means, anyway? The Personal Style Definitions series cracks the code on some of the major style categories. Confession time. How many of you, when you heard the style category “Sporty,” instantly thought of Sporty Spice? (I knew it!) You’re not far off, though. Born as sportswear at the beginning of the 20th century, the label first referred to clothing for sports, then by the ’20s came to mean informal and casual separates (a revolutionary idea after the days of corsets and full-length dresses). Later came the concept of…

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    1 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Can’t tell classic style from chic? Not sure what “boho” means, anyway? he Personal Style Definitions series cracks the code on some of the major style categories. The most traditionally feminine of the different style aesthetics, Romantic is soft, floral, sweet, playful and even whimsical. As a category, in fact, it’s a bit wider in definition than the others. One end of the Romantic spectrum is lacy, almost Gilded Age; the other end is girly in a Gamine way, with tiny patterns, like florals and polka dots, and bow accents; and somewhere in between is Shabby Chic. (The Lucky Guide to…

Be-suited professionals were allowed the freedom of separates and a thousand polo shirts and khakis were sold. In some offices, meanwhile, Casual Friday is the standard dress code. And Actual Fridays are a sartorial free-for-all. So maybe it helps to think of Casual…

    17 Jun 2014 | 4:00 am
    Can’t tell classic style from chic? Not sure what “boho” means, anyway? The Personal Style Definitions series cracks the code on some of the major style categories. Edgy, avant garde, a little bit rock and roll: the Modern style aesthetic is for women who love bold choices. You won’t be surprised to find it worn in art galleries, night clubs or in the front row of Fashion Week runway shows. And like its Chic sister, the Modern style is (seemingly) 99% black. How to tell if Modern is your style Warning: generalizations ahead! There are always exceptions to these “rules,” of course,…

A former psychologist who spent 5 years retraining at evening classes as a designer, she had amazing college collections that were unlike any kidswear ever seen before which I featured on Smudgetikka but she has now toned it all down and channelled her creativity into a more sellable own name kids fashion label.

    After last September’s sad leave of Marc Jacobs, from the helm of the creative direction of Louis Vuitton, there were major speculations on who could step into his shoes next. After 15 years at the creative peak of this house, Marc Jacobs, the man who put it on the fashion map in the first place said his goodbyes and it is a hard place to take over from. However, not long time after speculations began to rise, Nicholas Guesquierre, who was at the helm of Balenciaga not long before that, was appointed creative director of Louis Vuitton. Nicholas is known for his great attention to detail…

I don’t know why, but Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli manage to amaze me over and over again! I admit that also the fact that my very first article I wrote was regarding Valentino’s Spring Summer RTW Collection (if you want to check it out, you can find it here), created some sort of emotional linkage with the Italian brand. “Elegance is the balance between proportion, emotion and surprise”       Valentino Garavani And exactly this is what Valentino is…

    DC Goodwill Fashionista
    25 Jul 2014 | 5:30 am
    Remember that post I wrote a few weeks ago about how most people look at chambray and think denim, therefore it shouldn’t be worn professionally? Well, after doing a little perusing on Instagram, I came across Jenny’s layered chambray look and couldn’t help but think this is the epitome of “dressed up” chambray. It could absolutely be pulled off professionally. Her attention to detail and flawless layering here is downright admirable, dear readers.

Four fellow fashionistas and I shopped the racks of the store until we could shop no more. I’m pretty sure that between the five of us, we covered every inch of the store! Most of the gals hadn’t yet scavenged the Annandale location and I can assure we that we were all impressed by the both the merchandise and size of this store.

    This is one of my favorite warm weather trends, dear readers. A head scarf is a beautiful thing. Coming in a wide array of colors and textures, these little additions can effortlessly elevate a plain outfit. Not to mention, could there be an easier way to quickly disguise dirty hair? I don’t think so. A little dry shampoo and a good head wrap can have you feeling like a million bucks when you’re going on 24 hours of unwashed hair. Love it! You can honestly pull this style off without even purchasing a wrap; I guarentee that you’ve got things lying around your room that can…

    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.

Well, I’ve learned from experience that bug jewellery is very much a matter of personal taste, they seem to have the power to either delight or revolt, but I love them! I especially love the wings on the moth which are set en tremblent so that the move and tremble when you wear it! Novelty brooches were particuarly popular in the 1940s and 50s and insects were one of the big trends. Both items are from Miss Kitty’s amazing vintage store, which I urge you to check out if…

    Marion Davies is as well known for being a famous man’s mistress as she is for being a movie star. She already had a successful movie career when she first met newspaper tycoon William Randolph Hearst and became his lover. The relationship didn’t do her career any harm at all. He both financed her movies and promoted her heavily in his newspapers. She enjoyed the most success in romantic comedies, but Hearst also used his influence to get her cast in Historical dramas, which wasn’t really her forte. Because of Hearst’s influence on her career it was suggested that she…

    It was a total coincidence that I watched Grand Prix on the same weekend we heard about James Garner’s death. It is a movie I’ve meant to watch for a long time. I spent this weekend pretty much immersed in motorsport, with my son karting at Buckmore Park all day on Saturday plus it being a Formula 1 weekend, so this movie was an extension of a very petrol-fueled couple of days! Don’t be fooled by the movie poster, which is very reminiscent of The Cannonball Run, it’s nothing like that. While The Cannonball Run is admittedly one of my all-time favourite guilty-secret…

And I am here for all of this. I have also realized that with these, you either love them or you hate them. There really is no in between. BUT, What I have noticed is how easy it is for a maxi dress lover, like me, to find a comfy home in jumpsuits and rompers. Any reason for me to be easy breezy, sign me up! HOWEVER, I have realized that for me, I have more love for…
  • PLUS SIZE ART: La Belle Rafaela by Tamara de Lempicka and More

    23 Jul 2014 | 8:11 am
    A few weeks back, on Facebook a reader shared a picture that I was completely enamored by and today I wanted to share this and a few others with you. As plus size art seems to be something that we all seem to resonate with, sharing more visual pieces of our form captured in paint, sculpture, or sketch, plus size art is one to be shared and today it is La Belle Rafaela by Tamara de Lempicka and a few other pieces of her work from that period! Nothing like an artist who can capture the beauty of our shape, our essence, and the mood in such a fascinating way! I am here for all of the art, images…

If this is your first time, please check out last month’s post about Loving you and the first post here! And then jump on in and read the latest of what has been on DJ’s mind below!

    24 Jul 2014 | 12:00 am
    Did Warhol nail it? Pop artist Andy Warhol’s shocking statements of the obvious showed an intuitive understanding of the ordinary. With a straight forward way, Warhol turned every day objects into pop art and received endorsement for mass reproduction. When he noticed a humble image of a Campbell’s beef noodle can soup, he repeated it again and again. He claimed to had eaten soup for lunch most of his life. The image of a Campbell’s soup became a reflection of anti-Warhol sentiment. Simple objects that already existed were placed in front of a camera and immortalized…

    Marie Antoinette has been resurrected in a pared-down plain mode. The Christian Dior Fall 2014-2015 Haute Couture collection borrowed from Marie Antoinette’s wardrobe in the early 1780s – without the splendid, colorful extravagance. The Haute Couture collection by Belgian designer Raf Simons is a modernized variation of the 18th Century highly structured garments. Mr. Simons simplified the historical references with a democratizing spirit. La reine’s wide panniers constricted by corsets-like shapes were stripped off from heavy, stiffly opulent elements of 18th…
  • Les Heures Claires by AABE

    Vicky
    10 Jul 2014 | 12:00 am
    Entering a carefully controlled world of modernism means subtly disturbing its cleanliness and goodness. It is the stillness of a restrained space that seduces us to manifest ourselves. Les Heures Claires by Atelier d’Architecture Bruno Erpicum & Partners is a stripped down space, where nothing is extreme except the light. There is a militaristic precision to AABE’s renovation of a suburban house in Belgium into a continuously horizontal white structure accentuated by a flat roof. A home office beautifully balances a desire for transparency, tranquility, openness…

    The more at ease I feel in a space bathed with light, the more likely I am to reveal my peculiarities. If a spatial experience is generated by how I engage with it, it can give me hints about how I can experience it, visually and emotionally. Stuttgart-based firm, (se)arch architected, built Haus B19, a home for a Stuttgart art collector which combines a residence and an art gallery. Behind a traditional dressing of a conventional gable roof and a stark façade of wooden shingles of Alaska cedar, the four story house stands in a loosely configured way.

    I learned early on in life that I was going to draw outside the contours of traditional frameworks. Drawing gave me the confidence to give free reign to my emotions and imagination. When other kids were painting recognizable shapes I was sketching abstract concepts and quickly turning over the paper to color my fantasies with a lot of personality. Of course, my arduous crayon coloring revealed abstract possibilities that eventually led to intense graphite pencil drawings.

    The fashion world has an understandable allure, since it seems to be populated by tall stunning people with impossibly high cheekbones, strutting down a catwalk without flinching ~ despite the hundreds of camera flashes all around them.  As with many industries, behind the allure lies a great number of challenging aspects to achieving success, and anyone who wants to launch their own fashion line will quickly learn the difficulties of the business.

    If I had my way, I would have a 100+ slides all on Emma Watson and how amazing she is. Actually, I would make you a PowerPoint and sell you the idea of her. She's that cool. Before you assume, I'll just tell you: I'm a Harry Potter freak. I first got into the books my sophomore year of high school (late bloomer, I know) and I could re-read the series over and over again with no complaints. So it was only a matter of time before I wanted to be Hermione, and by transitive property that means Emma Watson. Girlfriend is #flawless in every sense of the word.

    Back in February, Jeremy Scott debuted his first collection as head designer of Moschino. No one was surprised that it was kitschy and quirky, but what the world was not expecting to see was McDonald's at Fashion Week. However, Anna Della Russo, Queen Street Style Star, gave the golden arches her stamp of approval, and that's when fast food fashion became a certified fall trend. But besides getting praise from editors and street style subjects, fast food fashion also popped up on the fall runways of Anya Hindmarch (handbags that look like bags of chips and cereal boxes), Kate Spade (Chinese…

Not only is it the trendy "I'm a health nut" thing to eat, it' also showing up on clothing and even in beauty products. Just the other day, we found Lea Michele's 'Kale' tank top (Obvi she eats kale. Have you seen her bod?!) and then, when we found out about Nails Inc's NailKale, we were fascinated. Is kale a beauty secret we've all been missing out on?

The Beautiful Losers are all members of a strong subculture movement ,documenting it as it unfolds. It is also a fascinating insight into everyday California. A kid in suburbia gets bored, one day grabs a skateboard and it becomes this all-consuming passion that will shape his or her life.

    This is a post I wrote for About Time Magazine. Yesterday, I was minding my own business online when I stumbled upon a tweet from a fellow blogger alerting her followers to a terrible case of blogger bashing taking place on I-D. Nothing new here, as it seems everyone likes to have a go at the “whack-a-blog” game these days… I don’t have enough fingers to count the articles that have been picking apart the blogging community over the years. But you know what? This time it made me angry enough to take it out on my keyboard… So in between pretty instagram shots of my endless…

    I've always been a Kate Spade fan.  From the fabulous jewelry to the adorable and whimsical accessories, I'm just a Kate Spade fanatic!As I was perusing the mall trying to find a cute Summer handbag, I came across the most amazing purse I've seen in a while: Kate Spade's Wicker Car Handbag.I mean, how crazily awesome is this bag??!

  • Beauty Boo-Boo: Getting High on Lip Balm

    Alana
    24 Apr 2014 | 1:00 pm
    Umm...yes.  This is a real thing. As a lip product junkie, I naturally freaked out when I discovered that teens across the country are literally getting high from Burt's Bees Lip Balm (a product I always have on me).This stuff is a serious beauty staple, as far as I m concerned. The tinted balms add just the right amount of color, while moisturizing in an amazing way. I've yet to find other balms that work as well.Unfortunately, people are now using the tingly lip balm in a new way. They call it "Beezin". It’s when you apply a light layer of the balm over your eyelids. Apparently,…

    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. A sweetheart neckline is ultra feminine and always…

    Stephen Burrows is an American fashion icon whose work in the 1970s continues to influence designers today. Burrows made a name for himself in the 1970s as one of the few African American designers, paving the way for many to follow in his chic footsteps.

    When shopping for vintage fashion, what better way to start than by looking back at how fashionistas of the past wore these looks? Without a doubt, one such style icon is Audrey Hepburn. Audrey Hepburn is the quintessential style icon. The British actress and humanitarian has been ranked as the third greatest female screen legend and is a member of the International Best Dressed List Hall of Fame. Her wardrobe has inspired many of the fashion staples still popular today. From her fitted pants to her famous Little Black Dress, Hepburn’s style challenged the fashion of the time, while…
  • Designer Spotlight: Chloé

    Few brands can say they have made quite the impact that French fashion house Chloé has. Found in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, Chloé revolutionized the way clothing was produced. Originally, luxury brands only produced Haute Couture, or made to measure clothing. For those who could not afford couture, they were left with poorly made copies, supplied by local seamstresses. Aghion, noticing the gap in the market, changed the world of fashion by creating a line of off the rack, high quality clothing. In creating Chloé, she made a bold point to reject the strict formality of 1950′s fashion for…

    I've had a weakness for clothing by Vivienne Westwood for some time. I actually tend to virtually drool over her funky tops and jackets. I recently took a good look at her collection of jewellery and just had to share these fabulous finds.The details are high-end, intricate and often rebelliously edgy ... in classic Ms. Westwood-style. As the collection is part of the Anglomania line, it's only natural for it to have a funky reference to the British royal class. The bottom line; these pieces are very striking and eye-catching.

The obsession has gotten so intense that I usually have trouble sleeping on a Saturday, as I’m so eager to be one of the early market goers – and snag the best flowers too, of course! The market is a massive part of my life – I’ve literally been there every Sunday for the past six months! I didn’t want to keep it a secret from you, as it genuinely makes me so happy. So here you…

    Okay – so here’s something new for me: wearing purple! I genuinely don’t think I’ve owned anything purple since way back in 2012, when I had this violet coloured vintage dress. In all honesty, I simply just don’t like purple very much. Or, I didn’t, at least, until quite recently. It all started with Nicole by OPI – they sent me a few polishes to style, one of which, was purple – a shade that I actually kind of liked! I painted it onto my nails and matched it to a rabbit print playsuit by Ark. And just like that, I’m cool with purple.

    1 Jul 2014 | 10:22 pm
    Photo: Cheryl Bemis You would think a Houston designer would have ample locations to do a photo shoot in her hometown, but there’s something about the Austin vibe designer Suzanne B from TropiCouture loves and it immediately puts her in her zen zone. She recently traveled to Austin and used the backdrop of Laguna Gloria to feature her Spring / Summer Collection 2014 featuring four energetic models. I was at the shoot and found out more about what makes this designer tick and her thoughts about the Austin fashion scene. For Suzanne, living in the tropics with the lush nature landscape,…

    We’re fashion-lovers, so we’ve all had exciting weeks, soaking in new designs during Austin Fashion Week 2014.

    Make Your Own Herb-Infused Body OilI made the switch from using body lotion to oil about a year ago, and haven’t looked back since. We’ve posted about the benefits of using oil as a moisturizer before  (check out what Brigette and Naomi had to say here and here), and while some may still initially balk at the idea of smoothing it on to their skin after a shower or bath, the benefits are undeniable, especially when you see the results first hand. To refresh, oils like almond, olive, jojoba, and coconut seal moisture into your skin, keeping it hydrated, fresh-looking, and protected…

Those brief two days of yoga classes, Ayurveda workshops, yoga spectaculars, and ancient Indian storytelling opened my eyes in ways that I could never have imagined. I left Wanderlust that year changed forever. It’s safe to say that in the two years since, a lot has happened. While I’m still the same me, I come to this festival a different person.

Coffee: A beverage that some people rely on to get them through the day.  Bikes + coffee = happy people, but Michael Salvatore, owner and CEO of Heritage Bicycles, already knew this equation quite well. As a man who’s been around bicycles all his life, he couldn’t quite picture one without these pedal driven vehicles.

    Organic vs. Conventional: The Dirty DozenI remember when the term “organic” first started becoming a thing – in my world, at least I would hear it being thrown around here and there, but finding an organic vegetable in my everyday supermarket was basically a joke. To be honest, I wasn’t buying into the whole idea of organic foods. I was still in high school at that time, and to me, choosing whole wheat bread over white bread was the healthiest it was going to get. Fast forward to a few years later, and here I am spreading the word about all things natural to as many people as I can,…

      MANNEQUINS GET A TATTOO MAKEOVER Inarguably the purpose of a department store mannequin is to draw attention to the clothing that it is wearing but this doesn’t mean that the mannequin itself can’t be visually interesting. One way that a New York department store is trying to garner attention is by giving their mannequins tattoos. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal Bergdorf Goodman has been giving their male mannequins a gruff makeover. In addition to adding tattoos to the fiberglass models the store has also been giving them some lifelike features including…

    Cynthia’s face remained completely blank, wearing that same empty stare at the theater, Bergdorf’s, a private dinner party, and even her regular hair salon. Everywhere she went, Cynthia tantalized the paparazzi and her adoring public—always seen on the arm of the fashionable Lester Gaba, wearing the runway’s latest styles and enjoying New York nightlife to the fullest—but still her gaze revealed nothing. Of course, that’s because Cynthia was a mannequin, crafted by Gaba to promote his retail display business. In 1937, Gaba’s irreverent experiment captivated the public by…

    Criticized for promoting unhealthy body image, retailers insist their 6ft, sinewy mannequins are only to boost sales Too bony, or aspirational? Photograph: Dan DeLuca/flickr With the start of summer comes the tradition of: swimsuit shopping, skimpier clothes – and with them, a host of body issues. So who wants to look up into a store window and, already dissatisfied with one’s body, see a mannequin with a concave stomach and visible ribs? Does that spur the impulse to buy out of aspiration? Or is it a turnoff? La Perla apparently thought its chic customers – who drop hundreds of…

    25 Jul 2014 | 3:29 am
    Rewind a few years, say circa early 2000 and the absence of the day-time maxi dress will strike you. Unless there was an event to attend or some posh gathering, wearing a maxi dress was a safe ticket to a social eyebrow raising followed by a wtf. Or, maybe I was just absent from the world back then, and bared too little knowledge of what was in and out at that time. Which is fine I guess. Who cares what was hip in the past or not (only the entire fashion world). We live in the now. ‘Carpe Diem the trends’ baby! Whatever. So, back to the Maxi Dress as a staple. Don’t you…

Then… I might reconsider. Just saying you know. Or, if you go less for the suspenders per se, and more for the harness look, as shown by designers a few years ago. McQueen, Versace, Prabal, Alexander Wang all went S&M on us with their versions of suspenders: wrapped around naked or not-so-naked bodies, rocked at Fashion Weeks by the cool fearless kids, resembling porn scenes more, rather than street style.

    22 Jul 2014 | 11:45 am
    Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year, you’re probably aware of everyone’s latest fashion craze: THE SNEAKERS! Why the obsession? Cause fashion today is about having fun, looking chic & sophisticated rather than too polished. Hence the sneakers’ ubiquity & everyone’s love affair with them. I too am guilty of the sartorial fad, so when I was gifted with  pair of New Balance Sneakers from SCORPION SHOES I was ecstatic. They’re an independent footwear retailer from Camden, London, and I can honestly say their collection of shoes,…
  • Do We Still Like OVERALLS?

    21 Jul 2014 | 8:35 am
    Hey, the farmers of the world called. They want their clothes back. Or at least credit for the rise of a trend, you know what I mean. Until that happens (let’s not hold our breath for it, though) we’re left with taking credit for all the ‘cool-hipster’ looks we’re putting together, courtesy of the OVERALLS, since 2013. That’s when the denim overalls had their 15 minutes of fame.  I’d have honestly guessed we’ve had it by now with this look, as last year, every.single. blogger. was photographed in a pair of denim overalls looking cooler than…
  • Are Mermaid Wedding Dresses A Trend?

    Not to sound like a self-absorbed, shallow, obsessed by fashion to the point of dementia bitch, but… when it comes to the wedding day, sure, the venue, flowers, menu matter, the perfection of the groom + families reunited into terrifying we’ve-got-to-be-happy-all-night-long state of mind, matter too, but one thing will top it all… the WEDDING DRESS. Hello! Jokes aside, of course it all matters, but in my case I knew if I had the right dress it would all fall perfectly into place. And it did. I never really gave much crap about the ‘how’s’ and the…

    Happy Friday! Here’s the scoop on all that’s been going on at SG HQ the week of July 21. And of course, I want to hear about all your latest adventures, too, so after I catch you up on me, go on and get me up to speed in the comments. Thinking about What happens when positive thinking just doesn’t work. If you guys follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or have simply tried visiting the site in the last few days, you know I’ve been having some major disagreements with my hosting company. Namely, that I want the site to be up all the time, and they were all, “Nah, how about like,…
  • Sports Style: On the Softball Field

    24 Jul 2014 | 5:00 am
    The Baseball Hall of Fame inducts its newest members this weekend. Thankfully, you don’t need to be breaking any batting records to get out on the field for yourself. My brother plays in a local softball league back in Madison, and I got really (like, really) excited when I saw their team shirts were the traditional raglan sleeve tops that I think of when I think of playing ball in the summertime. Maybe this vision of a not-actually-a-uniform uniform is a holdover of multiple viewings of The Sandlot as a kid? Whatever the reason, I continue to love this look on a guy, whether…

    Before visions of Don Johnson start dancing in your head (though, that could be fun too), let me say: you can wear a suit with a t-shirt and look stylish in 2014. A reminder to write about this very topic had been sitting on a sticky note above my desk recently, when I saw my menswear pal Moti in – of all things – a black suit with a graphic tee. As he put it, the outfit was actually born out of desperation..what to wear with an under-utilized, weddings-and-funerals-only black suit? (We get that, right guys??) He decided to dress his down, with slip-on sneakers and a bold…
  • Pattern Play: 3 Ways to Wear Dots

    style girlfriend
    22 Jul 2014 | 5:15 am
    Don’t fear the dot. A pattern as old as time and as identifiable as stripes, polka dots are worn by men not nearly as often as I’d like to see. Why, guys? Sure, it’s important not to go overboard with your dots. That’s why wearing polka-dot accent pieces like shoes, scarves, ties, or wallets is is a perfect way to wear the look without drowning in a sea of spots. Below, three ways to wear dots: TESTING THE WATERS Shirt: Club Monaco, $99 | Pants: J.Crew, $155 | Watch: Nixon, $95 | Sunglasses: Warby Parker: $145 Wallet: Herschel Supply Co., $30 | Shoes: Clae,…

However I decided to put on a brave face and put one to the test! My choice was the Philips SatinPerfect Wet & Dry Epilator, this deluxe edition comes with so many accessories plus I liked the idea of being able to use it wet and dry, as I figured maybe wet was less painful. In the set you get the main SatinPerfect epilator, a smaller version for sensitive areas like bikini and underarms, adjustable heads so it also comes with a shaving and…

The Autumn/Winter collection does not disappoint with a very East London vibe. Juxaposed materials are bonded together including cashmere, mohair and nappa leather, whilst metallic gold and sequins add colour and sparkle. The leather over the knee boots look amazing and I love their take on the tuxedo for us ladies. The AW14 is starting to appear in stores now and into August, here are a few of my favourites.

  • Alerta de tendência: Rosa Moderno

    23 Jul 2014 | 1:07 pm
    O cor de rosa é, sem sombra de dúvidas, a cor favorita de 9 entre 10 meninas. Depois da adolescência, no entanto, o tom começa a entrar em desuso e no momento em que atingimos a idade adulta, ele já está quase em extinção nos nossos armários. O motivo é fácil de entender: o rosa precisa de uma certa dose de modernidade na hora de ser combinado com outras peças, sob o risco de nos deixar infantilizadas. No entanto, trata-se de um preconceito sem fundamento. A cor, que aparece numa grande variedade de tons, se adapta a todas as complexões, valorizando e iluminando a pele. Quer…

    O incrível mundo dos acessórios não para de nos trazer novidades (felizes para o coração, nem tão felizes para o bolso). A notícia da vez é que o tamanho das bolsas mudou, de novo. Já vínhamos acompanhando o retorno das bolsas menores e das carteiras. Agora, entretanto, o tamanho diminuiu mesmo. Na saída dos desfiles de Alta Costura em Paris (praticamente uma passarela paralela), nas revistas, nas ruas, até nos braços de Rihanna, a ordem do dia é fazer seus pertencem caberem dentro de uma caixinha de música. Apesar de desafiadora, a missão vale a pena. Confira as fotos que o…

    From Port Elizabeth I flew to Cape Town to spend a week with my sister and to catch up with friends. Oh and eat sushi. Love Sushi? Fly to Cape Town. And make sure to visit Beluga and Sevruga (my two favourite sushi restaurants in Cape Town), and my new discovery Nuri Sushi (who knew jalapeno sushi was a thing?). The pictures speak for themselves. Once you’ve eaten all the sushi you can possibly eat (for me that was four consecutive sushi dinners), then it’s time for the wine. If you’re travelling to Cape Town, be sure to set aside at least one day for wine tasting at…

He was overseas over my birthday last year and it was pretty crap celebrating without him. I fly to South Africa tomorrow so I will save the partying for Cape Town. The lovely thing was that the 28th fell over the week-end so no work, no emails, no stress. Which already made the day so much more awesome.

This luxurious hotel is situated on a private beach overlooking a lagoon of sorts that separates Abu Dhabi Island from the mainland. I spent a considerable amount of time researching where I would like to spend my birthday weekend this year and Qaryat Al Beri stood out in terms of the location (private beach was a must), travellers’ recommendations (glowing references on TripAdvisor, aside from the noise of the occasional jet skier), and value for money (lush 5 star hotel with pretty decent summer specials).

    It’s no secret that there is an abundance of overly trendy, clichéd designs in the world of tattoo art. If you’re seeking a design that you’re unlikely to see tatted on several other people as you navigate through your daily life, consider a white ink tattoo. While the concept is a unique one, the subtle nature of the white tattoo also makes it the perfect choice for those who may have reservations about getting inked. The lighter your skin, the more subdued the appearance of your chosen design will be, making it a fantastic way to ease into the world of ink masters. Although it will…

    Having gel nails is all the rave nowadays. They look great and last way longer than if you were to use regular nail polish. Using gel has been referred to as the “miracle manicure”, and with good reason. Though gel nails are essentially fake nails, they do look surprisingly natural. There are two types of gels for possible use: hard and soft. Hard gel is tough enough to create an extension on your nail, whereas soft gel is not. Both are cured under U.V. or L.E.D. light to provide the finishing touch. Once cured, the nail color(s) will not chip, smudge, or get damaged for around two weeks,…

    Although many women have a tendency to say that medium length hair offers the best of both worlds – many other women would jump at the chance to differ. In fact, sometimes, having medium length hair is not really all that it is cracked up to be. Statistics show that many women who maintain medium hairstyles for curly hair, also maintain bangs of some length as well. This may include side bangs, straight bangs and even edgy bangs that are mostly brush back into the rest of the hair line naturally. In any of these cases, bangs can often make it difficult to pull off certain hairstyles,…

    With summer in the air, we embrace this season of warmth, and shed our winter habits. Our meal plans change from warm and hearty feasts to lighter and fresher produce. A clothing conversion is essential. As layers are dropped and fabrics become both lighter and brighter, the canvas to flash and flaunt spectacular accessories is exposed. It is on our very own bodies that we get to place the decorations of our summer wardrobes. A basic t-shirt and short ensemble can be livened up with a dazzling pair of dangling earrings or a pretty pendant. A plain summer dress can be made to come alive…

    You put on a blouse or apply some lipstick and something about the shades make your eyes, skin and face simply come alive. The very next time, you try something in a slightly varied shade only to look washed out and drawn. Simple explanation required? Some colours clearly match your skins surface tones and undertones perfectly, while others are simply not complementary at all. Both the fashion and beauty industries revel in buzzwords but few are as pervasive as “warm and cool undertones”. Identifying which you are best suited to is fundamental to our general attractiveness. More so,…
  • Holiday jewellery – do's and don'ts

    Part of the appeal of holiday time – besides the embraced absence of routine – is the lack of requirement to use our brains, on call. We get to choose how much we want to focus on what activity or topic. It is pure cerebral ecstasy. Diminished mind muscle aside, there are still things that catch our interest and that we want to perfect and get right. Isn’t it tremendously convenient when a list or guideline is provided that further removes all the guesswork and deliberation from such a situation? We needn’t have to reiterate the importance of accessory bling but we can make the do’s…

    I have mentioned that I enjoy illustrations in the past (Art, Ads, and Classic Style). I may have not mentioned that I am especially interested in Japanese illustrations of Trad/ Ivy/ Preppy Americans. These illustrations can range from extremely accurate with all the right details to caricatures sporting outlandish looks. Here I present illustrations by Hiroshi Watatani from the 10th anniversary calendar for the Japanese trad brand Select Store Septis. Not only do these illustrations focus on American style and culture, but they even pay tribute to the American illustration styles such as…
  • To Crease or not to Crease?

    13 Jul 2014 | 9:28 am
    I used to never crease my chinos. It seemed too fussy. Not that it looked overly fussy, but rather that it said to others that I spend an excessive amount of time thinking about and prepping clothing which is exactly the opposite reason that I am attracted to a classic American style. However, in pursuit of the perfect pair of chinos I began experimenting with the crease…and liked it. Far and away the biggest reason that I liked the crease is the tapered silhouette that it creates. This makes perfect sense when I started to think about it. Ironing pants without a crease actually…

    5 Jul 2014 | 10:09 am
    I have a thing for ties. Actually, I assume that most people that are interested in traditional clothing have a thing for ties, but because my style is fairly conservative the tie is one of the few items that allows me to express my personality in color and patterns for all to see. Lately I have been drawn to one specific type of striped tie (Illustrated by The Popinjay above). This tie features three different colored stripes that repeat and are all of equal proportions, but the stripes’ proportions vary from tie to tie. The first time that I noticed this tie was on the J.Press website. I…
  • Trad DIY: How to Hem pants with a Cuff

    oxford cloth button down
    29 Jun 2014 | 5:32 am
    With a box of unhemmed chinos staring at me for well over a month I finally broke down and decided to something about it. My dry cleaner takes at least two weeks to turn this around. My tailor takes one week, but he is an hour away. So that something turned out being learning how to hem them myself …with a cuff. My first step was to learn how cuffs were constructed. I could have searched the internet for the perfect answer, but having a few pairs of chino with cuffs coming apart on their own I just looked at how they were constructed.  That is all to say fair warning. There may be better…
  • Billax’s made up rules for TNSIL apparel – Shoe impact

    22 Jun 2014 | 4:38 pm
    This post is a reprinting of a post on a forum that is frequented by Billax. Billax is not only one of my style role models, but a friend and a man that was Trad back when it was called Ivy League. Hypothesis/Justification for trousers – cuff/no break and tapered leg casual pants. I’ve worn the cuff/no break (see here: Cuff, no break)look for 56 years. I’ve also worn tapered-leg-opening casual pants for the same number of years. It’s a deeply ingrained preference for me, but can one work backward to an analytic justification for that look? Maybe. I’ve been speculating on a set of…

Whether it’s Coco Chanel and her worldly wisdom,  Marc Jacobs talking about his propensity for making “real” clothes, or Simon Doonan sounding off about, well, anything, the best fashion quotes are ones that say so much with a few short words.

    What does Kendall and Kylie Jenner frolicking in the desert with horses have to do with going back to school? We’re not sure. A promotional video for the Jenner sister’s back-to-school collection with Pac Sun was just released on YouTube, and it’s safe to say it has it’s fair share of ridiculous moments. The one and a half minute video features Kendall and Kylie decked out in bohemian pieces such as flared jeans, tasseled crop tops, and patterned shorts.

  • trends scouting: jewelry headpiece

    10 Jun 2014 | 4:13 am
    The headchain trend which is inspired by the Indian traditional jewelry goes around for quite a long time now but only recently became what we could call as massive fashion. In my opinion one should be cautious while wearing it because sometime it might look not that elegant. I’ll suggest wearing it with a classy evening outfit or the exact opposite, something bohemian and inspired by the festival look. Do not try to mix it with many ethnic elements or it will look rather confusing. click here to see more photos http://bit.ly/1o8MlpbΤο trend του headchain, αυτού του…

In fact, the average man spends just $400-1200 per year on apparel. Depending on how expensive your taste is and where you like to shop, this budget could go very quickly. For the record, I believe in quality over quantity. I think you should splurge for certain items, like shoes. It’s better to spend $300 on a pair of high quality shoes that will be worn for 10+ years than $50/year on cheap shoes that…

    21 Jul 2014 | 1:21 am
    Summer has been HOT and you know what that means… Makeup is kept to a minimum, except a fierce pout. A bright color lip with barely there makeup is the perfect look we’ve been achieving this season. Say hello to Lipstick Queen’s color-popping coral, Jungle Queen.With this long lasting, hydrating formula, it’s a flattering shade for all skin complexions that gives a modern, glamorous lip. The coverage is buildable, so you can wear this as a lip stain or more for a bold lip depending on the look you want. We love how this can brighten your skin tone instantly. It’s even more…

    When it comes to fashion in the summer, we love something sharp, clean and chic. White is our go-to color to sport during the summery months, because you can pair it with any fun accessory that glams up any white outfit. Not only that, it pops out your tan to the max.We are obsessed with this off the shoulder, breezy dress CA1417 from Chio Di Stefania D, an Italian glamour label that makes you want to jet set to somewhere fabulous. It’s linen and cotton, and the macramé lace detailing is beautiful and adds a little sexiness to the bare shoulders. (Make sure to apply body oil to this part…

    Yes, we saw you do a double take… We’ve been getting that all summer long thanks to Mignonne Gavigan, one of our favorite accessories designer. Mignonne “Maggie” the mastermind behind the label first started her signature beaded chiffon scarf necklace, the Le Charlot in 2009. The idea was born when she draped a ripped piece of an embellished vintage gown around her neck and realized the beauty it could have as an everyday accessories piece. You can honestly wear it with a plain tank and it makes such an effortless, yet bold statement. (Be prepared to pick-up jaws- no joke!){Mignonne…

    We are all about poolside glamour and it’s even better when two sisters are behind the label. Stefania and Maria Christina Di Simone created Chio Di Stefania D in 1999, where the collection is manufactured exclusively in Italy. Their goal was to create a collection that contained a strong measure of high fashion and introduce the concept of “haute couture” to beachwear.Chio is for that ultra glam jet setter that is modern and chic, yet sophisticated. We love that the fabulous beachwear and resort wear is versatile enough to be worn under the sun or a beach cocktail party. The fine…

    Fit matters. We say it all the time on this blog because its so true!  Recently in yet another entertaining and informative video Bridgette Raes lays out how to disguise a big tummy. One powerful weapon is fit. Sadly, most fashion manufactures have no clue how important fit is. Women simply cannot be hemmed into a handful of numbered sizes. Once actress America Ferrera (Ugly Betty, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) was asked what  her dress size she was she replied “I buy a size 8 because of my chest, but my waist and hips are a size 6 so I have them altered”. This is why…

    Is your self worth tied to the size that you wear?  With the recent announcement of J. Crew’s plans to sell a size 000, I received a message from a dear friend of mine who openly admitted to how this effected her perception of herself, and it wasn’t positive. I decided to give my thoughts on vanity and glamor sizing and how we as women allow ourselves to judge our worth based on the size label.  Watch the video below.  What are your thoughts?

    Knowing that it’s all about ombre fashion these days I wanted to touch on this trend.  Besides, Ombre is such a fun word to say.  Ombre.  Try it.  Being an accessories freak, I decided to talk about ombre accessories instead of ombre clothes.  As I always like to say, accessorizing is a great way to incorporate a little bit of trend into your existing wardrobe.  Plus, accessories can easily go from work to weekend, guaranteeing you’ll get a lot of bang for your buck. To show you how you can get a ton of use from one piece of ombre accessories, check out the five ways I…
  • Laser Cut Fashion: On the “Cutting Edge” of Trend

    Unlike lace, which is a highly debated as a daytime fabric, its close cousin, laser cut fabric can give you the look you are seeking without wondering if what you are wearing is before 5pm appropriate.  Laser cut fashion is everywhere.   If it can be worn on the body you can find it in this “cutting edge” trend, no pun intended. Laser cut fashion is cool.  In fact, all it took was working on this blog post to totally find myself coveting something with this treatment.  I’m not sure if it will be this laser cut shirt from Modcloth, that I am using to feature in…

    It'll be Labor Day before we know it so there's no better time to get some your all white looks out of the way - does anyone really still pay attention to the "no white after Labor Day" rule?! Anyways, these Japanese Selvedge Jeans from J. Crew are still in the beginning stages of breaking so I have no choice but to wear them straight through Labor Day to get them just right... least that'll be the excuse I'll be using. I'm going to break these guys in over the next couple months to show just how buying some selvedge denim can be worth the sometimes steep price.

    Another weekend comes to a close... unfortunately. With summer already just about half way over, I have really been trying to enjoy every bit there is left of it. At the very least, the anticipation of the end of summer is getting me out of bed a little earlier than usual. As casual as I like to be on the weekend, I'm always well aware that the one time I decide to dress down is that one time I'll run into someone I know. My solution: Topo Ranch - the California based brand that brings West Coast casual vibes every New Yorker needs after a long work week in the city. These Tri…

    Every once in a while, you just have to treat yourself to a little staycation - a time where you can just pack a small bag and enjoy your own space and some much needed silence. For me, there's just nothing like it! The city can be loud and expectedly overwhelming so when Langham Place contacted me to experience a weekend in one of their Residence Suites, I jumped on the opportunity. Without a doubt one of the nicest hotels in the city, Langham Place Fifth Avenue, offers a unique apartment-style experience in their much sought after suites.

    In light of my Olympus Pen talk and photowalk for the Jessops Summer Photo Festival in London on 1 Aug (it’s free, email here to get a place plus £50 voucher!), I thought I would do a little overview of my photography kit…  Since a happy accident turned me onto the  Olympus Stylus 1 last year, I got going with the Olympus Pen system this spring and it’s been an absolute revelation for me photography-wise. Having started out with a second-hand Canon DSLR (the relatively light and out-of-date 400d) a few years before I started my blog, I was soon hankering after a smaller…

I love the bright colours they come in! I got this Karabar one from Amazon for about £40. I was also looking at the Hauptstadkoffers on recommendation from a friend (apple green, yes please!) but as it comes from Germany wasn’t going to arrive in time. This is a medium size, coming in at 67cm tall; our last suitcase was a large 76cm and I’m sure I packed just to fill the space so…

Handcrafted, non-industrialised products rich in natural phytoextracts, although, to be honest, I was sold at the smell. There are some beauty products that make you feel like you’ve been transported into an Elizabeth Taylor-esque  life of luxury in a spa in the mountains; this brand does exactly that with its fresh delicate fragrances that are lightly…

But this summer, especially with the heat we’re having here in London – luckily our home is pretty cool inside – I keep going back to the same outfit over and over.

I don't know how he could recommend it without mentioning that you should have your therapist on speed dial while reading it, but what can you do.Apparently there is three stories in it if I understand correctly, I've finished the first one and I'm taking a break reading some more, lovely, Paulo Coelho before continue on the second story.It was a weird feeling be scared from a book the same way you get…
