    David Cronenberg’s Maps to the Stars is a Hollywood monster movie in which Hollywood is the monster. When Mia Wasikowska gets off the cross-country bus amid the sunshine and palm trees, she might be Naomi Watts arriving dumbfounded and dreamy in David Lynch’s 2001 Mulholland Drive but for the glint of recognition in her eyes and the mysteries of her past lurking behind the burn scars on her body. Wasikowska’s estranged family includes a self-help-guru father, who insists he loves her even as he makes clear he never wants to see her again, and a basket-case mother managing the acting…

    Miley Cyrus is known for many things like twerking and the pop enigma that is "Bangerz," and now a growing and diversified musical interest can be added to that list. She's teamed up with her friends in The Flaming Lips to cover The Beatles, as well as The Smiths and Outkast. Most recently, Cyrus released a recording of herself singing the band's "Babe, I'm Gonna Leave You." Despite Cyrus' annoyingly placed "Baby" in the title, the extremely lo-fi quality of the song and the inherent challenge of covering a Zeppelin song, one can't deny her dynamics, gritty belts and enthusiasm are on point.

  • 2014 Comfortable yet Stylish Tall Boot Guide

    Kirsten Borrink
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:21 pm
    There’s a boot for every foot, big or little; narrow or wide. There’s a boot for every calf, thin or “athletic.” Here are six of my favorite tall boots for fall 2014, always keeping comfort and support in mind. If nothing catches your eye, take a glance at last year’s fall boot guide–most of the boots are still current styles! 1. Cat Footwear is the global footwear licensee for Caterpillar Inc., makers of all those super-awesome earth movers–backhoes, excavators and skid steers. Their boots may not be earth-moving, but they’re darn…
  • Aerosoles Mr. Softee

    Kirsten Borrink
    13 Sep 2014 | 2:25 pm
    I’m going to get comments about how flexible outsoles are no good for the feet. That’s true if you have toe pain from arthritis or hallux rigidus and need to restrict movement of the forefoot. But I’ve received emails recently from readers with Morton’s Neuroma, diabetes and other conditions such as swollen feet, bunions and hammertoes. Rigid shoes or footwear with stiff leather only aggravates their feet. So, I’m going against the grain recommending two styles by Aerosoles for women that suffer from these conditions. The Mr. Softee by Aerosoles is a simple flat…

    6 Sep 2014 | 8:51 am
    I used to teach middle school back in the 90s. One day in September of 1997, my feet started to hurt. I blamed it on my new purple suede Hush Puppies loafers that I was breaking in, but when I woke up the next morning, the pain had multiplied through my body–knees, fingers, shoulders, neck. An accurate diagnosis would come three months later–rheumatoid arthritis. I was only 27. How would I make it through the day teaching large classes of 7th and 8th graders? How would I circulate through the classroom checking homework and lending help? How could I teach lessons and supervise…
  • Ankle Boots for Hallux Rigidus/ Limitus

    Kirsten Borrink
    1 Sep 2014 | 8:58 am
    I have hallux rigidus and am looking for a short boot.  I notice that brands like Dansko have different, seemingly more flexible, soles on their boots vs their clogs.  I am hesitant that the more flexible sole might not be rigid enough for my big toe. Have you reviewed these or other short boots that have worked with this type of foot problem? Thanks, Donna Hi Donna, I can empathize somewhat as my orthopedic doc diagnosed my big toe with the same condition and lined me up for surgery! Whether the stiffness and pain in your big toe is caused by arthritis, structural abnormalities of the…

We wish for bigger ones, smaller ones, rounder ones, fuller ones (and OK, at my age, perkier ones).Breasts. Next to hair, is there another woman’s feature that gets as much attention?And it starts early.  I remember, as a little girl, watching my Mom get dressed.  She could be getting ready to go to the commissary at the…

    Every year I create a birthday video montage for the kids. It started as a fun little birthday project because I thought it would be a great way to track their growth throughout the year. I really… believe it or not, started making them as keepsakes for MYSELF! I used to love to scrapbook back in the day, but with work and so much stuff going on in our lives, I haven’t had a chance to anymore.Well… over the last 3 or 4 years, the videos have become the most favorite part for the kids, too!They’ve even started to “request” what song they want for their…

My goodness. 10 years old.I want you to know something… 10 years ago today, my heart just fell in love with you. You were wanted so badly, so very, very badly. When I was trying to get pregnant with you, I went to church every night and prayed for you to come to me. We lived right around the corner from a beautiful church in NYC, and even on the nights when the church was locked… I would stand there on the steps with your father and just pray that you would come to us.On January 17th,…

I didn’t know the color of his eyes. I didn’t know the color of his hair. I didn’t know whom he would favor more, me or his father. I was as anxious for him to come as any first time mother would be. Every night I went to bed thinking, “Would tonight be the night?”I woke up on the 24th feeling the same – big and ready to pop! The 24th was a Friday, and it was my last day at work before my…

    Last week, Net-A-Porter sent out an email with the subject line "5 new reasons to love Isabel Marant."  This got me thinking about the designer for the first time in almost a year. Last fall, she was gearing up for a huge H&M collab, and before that, her sneaker wedges were single-handedly spearheading the athleisure trend that is now so ubiquitous. So where the heck has she been the past 12 months? Marant never went away from the fashion scene. In fact, she just debuted her spring 2015 collection at Paris Fashion Week last Friday.

I love watching the leaves change, visiting cider mills, picking pumpkins, and Halloween; I love apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, and Fireball Fridays; I love sweaters and booties and leggings. Fall is my happy place. If that makes me ‘basic‘, so be it. I change for no one. That being said, fall colors are so dark. Don’t get me wrong, I love oxblood, cognac, and navy, but sometimes it feels like my entire fall wardrobe is like a watercolor washed…

      Try these untraditional comfort foods for healthy and delicious ways to improve mood. The idea behind the traditional interpretation of “comfort food” is not so ill-conceived. When our blood sugar levels are low, we are hungry or we are upset, nothing feels quite as satisfying – as filling, in more than the physical sense of the word – than sitting down and enjoying a delicious, warm, nostalgia-ridden, heavy meal. It’s comfort. But beyond this brute definition of comfort food, there’s what lies between the fine lines. Some foods provide comfort because of their nutritional…

    Sara Novak

    Whitebark pine trees are typically found in cold , windy, high elevations. They’re a stress tolerant tree that survives where other pines cannot. Distributed among coastal mountain ranges from central California to Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia and in the Rocky Mountains from Idaho to Montana, Wyoming, and Alberta, this hearty tree is under threat as a result of a lethal fungus and the gluttonous mountain pine beetle. But the biggest killer, according to the Forest Service, is global climate change which will result in a 97 percent decimation of whitebark pine trees in the U.S.

    Every brand, no matter how iconic, needs a refresh every once in awhile. As the market shifts, companies must evolve with it or risk becoming obsolete. Retail is particularly fast moving, and with an inexhaustible selection of similar items, it’s becoming ever more difficult for brands to stay relevant and fresh in the minds of consumers. In 2011, classic American brand Levi’s decided it was time for a facelift. Though the company felt it had come to represent a certain kind of salt-of-the-earth authenticity, it also realized it hadn’t challenged itself enough creatively.

The Dorothy Perkins sale has hundreds of items that just a few weeks ago were on the shelves, rails and online for full price – and this Dorothy Perkins burgundy red Dobby spot dress is just one fine example. The Dorothy Perkins burgundy red Dobby spot dress is perfect to wear to the office with a black pair of tights and a matching black cardi, and would look just as chic on a day-to-day basis with some sky high heels or super-cute ankle boots and a bold, statement…

    1 Oct 2014 | 3:53 am
    Feminism is without a doubt, the word of the month. First we had Emma Watson’s moving UN speech where she announced the launch of her HeForShe initiative, and now Karl Lagerfeld presents an equal rights protest for the Chanel spring/summer 2015 collection for Paris Fashion Week. Some of the hottest and most in-demand models such as Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Gisele Bundchen, Joan Smalls and Georgia May Jagger, among many others, joined the Chanel Revolution and held up signs with powerful messages on the catwalk – all while dressed in the finest and newest Chanel attire, of course!

  • Go-Go Sleek

    14 Sep 2014 | 1:54 pm
    One of the collections that stood out to me the most from the FW 2014 runway shows was Gucci.  A modern take on retro, the collection cleverly infused a 60s vibe throughout in a delightful mix of colors.  The footwear is my favorite especially the knee-high boots with chunky heels.  For work, these ankle boots will look sharp under trousers while offering a hint of retro-chicness.

    The fall season is a great time to try something new and if you haven’t already done the metallic look, it’s a definite must-try this season. Add a little bit of shine to your look with a pair of pointed toe heels or dress-up a simple black sweater with a metallic brocade mini skirt.

    Any other time of year, ghosts and witches and ghouls scare the pants off most kids. When October hits, though, they become totally fun. With just a day to go until October, now is definitely the time go wild with Halloween clothing for kids. Boasting cute, scare-free motifs, styles like the ones featured below are adorably appropriate for little ones of all ages. Choose a onesie for baby’s first Halloween, pajamas for cool fall nights or graphic tees for casual days. Trick-or-treating may only last one night, but with Halloween clothing for kids, they can have festive fun all month…
  • Lovely leather looks for fall

    Christine Fox
    28 Sep 2014 | 10:10 pm
    When it’s not yet cool enough to bring out your puffy parka jacket, then opt for a trendy and stylish leather jacket instead. A leather jacket takes any look to a whole new style level whether you pair it with jeans and boots for a casual look or throw it over a blouse and pencil skirt for a different dressed up look for a day at the office. While we know that wearing leather isn’t for everyone, you might want to try a vegan leather jacket as a cool alternative that is more budget-friendly and animal-friendly. This season try it both ways for a look that will let you shine. From…
  • Effortlessly cool capes for cooler days ahead

    Courtney Strimel
    25 Sep 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Practicality and fashion (sadly) don’t always go hand in hand. A case in point is the whole trend of throwing a great coat over your shoulders and heading out the door. It looks so effortlessly cool and chic but for those of us who have to use our arms regularly…no way. Thankfully capes are plentiful and very well done this fall. Like the tossed-on coat, they give your overall look a very “cool chick” vibe with the added bonus of the ability to rifle through your bag for your keys, carry a cup of coffee, change a diaper…whatever your day requires. And if you…

    It feels like it’s been a minute since we’ve last heard from Flight Facilities and with good reason. The Aussie duo has been busy in-studio putting the finishing touches on their debut EP “Down to Earth” slated to release on October 24th in Australia by currently on fire label Future Classic and in the US by Glassnote. We’re indulging in their first single “Two Bodies”, a melodic dreamlike track which slowly builds with the help of Emma Louise’s vocal pleasantry. With their Australian tour underway, the duo is scheduled to be stateside in…

    30 Sep 2014 | 11:20 am
      Hey there. Apologies for the brief absence. Jasper had a million sicknesses back to back… roseola, pneumonia, bronchitis, and a suspected inhaled green pea. Then we decided it was time to buy a home. So there is that, which I’ll talk about another time. Needless to say, I’ve fallen off the radar in several parts of my life. I’m really just now getting back into  the “work” rhythm. During that time while my son was sick and I was taking care of the new home situation, I had even less time to deliberate what I should wear. Comfort and simplicity…
  • The Five Stages of Accepting a Fashion Trend You Hate

    jennine
    3 Sep 2014 | 1:48 pm
    It sounds cliché, but there is indeed a thin line between love and hate. Sometimes I’ll love something, like, high heels, then grow to hate them. I mean, high heels look cool, but damn, they hurt. Or if something cool and irreverent becomes over exposed, like the Charles Anastase Dungeon Boots were amazing, but Jeffry Campbell’s Lita knock off, and the subsequent mania over the style made it the most repulsive fashion trend of the century. Overexposure can turn love for a style into hate. There were so many times when I saw a new trend and thought… “Oh hell…

    jennine
    27 Aug 2014 | 1:32 pm
    I used to think I was really smart. Until we moved and my new teacher tested my reading level by giving a paragraph to read. I sat there, and even though I could read, I couldn’t concentrate at all, the paragraph just looked like a bunch of letters. So naturally, I couldn’t answer any of her questions about the text, and naturally she put me in the dumb kids reading group. It wasn’t really called the “dumb kids reading group” but we all know that’s what it was. [I'm] smarter than a most cats but not as smart as Stephen Hawking. Even though I wanted to be…

    There used to be a time when I would dress up every day. Get up at 5:30, go to the gym, curl my hair. Put on makeup. Put on one outfit. Take it off. Try another. Still not right, try on something else. Arrrgh! Nothing looks GOOD, and now all my clothes are on the floor, it’s now 8:15, I’m half naked and if I don’t get dressed right that second, I’m going to be half an hour late for work. These days, Jasper normally wakes me up at 5:30. We go out into the living room. I read him about 20 baby books (it takes about 5 minutes). We play with trains. I push him around the…
  • We Need to Make It Easier (and Safer) to Talk About Suicide

    jennine
    13 Aug 2014 | 12:40 pm
    When the news about Robin Williams broke, it felt like someone punched me in the stomach. While I was deeply saddened to hear of his death, and that he committed suicide, I was not shocked. I did see him in real life once, in 2006, and while I can’t disclose the details of where I saw him, I can say that he appeared to be going through a very rough time. I remember thinking that he too was as fragile as any human, and how hard it must be to go through difficulties when everyone expects you to be on top of the world. “My conscious was like, “Did you just say ‘Fuck…

  • A Galaxy of Fashion Frocks by Roland Mouret (S/S'15)

    Fashiontribes
    25 Sep 2014 | 10:19 am
    In a business where runway looks are all over Instagram five minutes after their catwalk debut, everything can quickly seem so 5 minutes ago. Except when they're not, like in the case of Roland Mouret's flattering and timeless Galaxy dress which he introduced waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back in fall of 2005 for Spring 2006. And a decade later, the design still looks fresh and fabulous. (image) Of course, it helps to be be backed financially by the amazing Simon Fuller - yes, that same Simon who created Pop Idol (American Idol stateside), produced 500 No.1 hit singles, managed the Spice Girls,…

    25 Sep 2014 | 7:55 am
    It started with a turban. Milliner Stephen Jones had once created one in the 80s by twisting a t-shirt on the head of singer Kate Garner (right) and he channeled that memory for the Spring 2015 collection by Thom Browne, creating more than 30 hats for the runway. They helped set a deliciously zany tone for the playful, Tea Party in Wonderland feel of the clothing - a marvelously mad mix of florals, butterfly-like profusions of feathers, dreamy pastels, nightmarish brights, kid-friendly mixes of flowers, oversize prints (like a child playing dressup in a parent's closet) and circus-like blocks…

    Kate Moss makes for a most excellent choice to peddle the reload of the Gucci Jackie bag (named, of course, for Jackie O) - for Moss is an interesting mashup of being kinda slouchy yet luxe, kinda High Street but designer, kinda vintage and kinda fash-forward. Like Gucci. Gucci designer Frida Giannini "is at her believable best when she embraces everyday luxury," observes fashion critic Nicole Phelps. "The good life, after all, is what the Gucci mythology is all about." (image) Which means clothing comfortable enough to withstand a 24/7 schedule and chic enough to look like you still keep…

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:34 am
    Despite the elegant Greenwich Village setting with its spendy view of Washington Square Park plus a souk's worth of luxe fabrics - silk linens, supple leathers, summer "fur" (knotted tassels...of silk) - the Spring 2015 collection by Adam Lippes had a delicious, non-elegant edge. Perhaps it was the punk-approved palette of black, dirty navy and rocker-grrrl red. Maybe it was the off-kilter proportion of the roomy, pant/culotte paired with a cool ankle-strap heel. But the overall feel brought to mind for me what a diehard punk rocker would wear now that she had somehow acquired a champagne…

  • Patterned Monochrome Layers for Fall

    Angie
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:10 am
    We’re enjoying a blissful mild and sunny Autumn in Seattle. My outfits have been all about lightweight layers, lots of neutrals, bold white accents, texture-rich separates, pattern, a little shine, and booties. Dresses and skirts have gone into hibernation, and so begins the awfully long stretch of wearing trousers and jeans daily.  I’ve fallen back in love with layering a knitted shell top over a shirt. I overdosed on the combination a decade ago, and thereafter stayed clear of it for a long time. But I was instantly drawn toChelsea28’s Textured Mixed Knit Shellat the Nordstrom…

  • Matching Belts with Footwear

    Angie
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:26 am
    Matching the colour of your belt and your footwear was the stylish way to go until about a decade ago. Fashion loosened up and mismatching became the trendy thing to do. These days, both options are current and stylish. I went through a stage where I preferred the mismatch, but over the last three years my preference has returned to matching my belt and footwear. It creates instant outfit cohesion and makes me feel more pulled together.  Here are two examples where the belt and footwear are closely matched. The one on the left matches a burgundy belt with booties. The outfit on the right…

    From Der Spiegel Magazine Earlier this month, 500 people, mostly refugees from the Gaza Strip, drowned when their ship sank in the Mediterranean. It was the worst such tragedy in a summer full of them. SPIEGEL traveled to Gaza and Crete to find out what happened.

    From the New York Times Every September, the campuses of Peking and Tsinghua Universities, often called the Harvard and MIT of China, brim with eager new students, the winners of China’s cutthroat education system. These young men and women possess the outlook of cosmopolitan youth worldwide: sporting designer clothes and wielding high-end smartphones, they share experiences of foreign travel and bond over common fondness for Western television shows like “The Big Bang Theory” and “Sherlock.” They are destined for bright futures: In a few decades, they will fill high-powered…

    From the International New York Times-  PARIS – There is something misleading about the current political excitement on both sides of the Seine. The ouster of three rebel ministers by a surprisingly firm president, a government reshuffle, a standing ovation delivered at Medef, the employers’ union, for the Socialist prime minister who dared to proclaim, “I love business!”: All the action was set in Paris. Yet one could fantasize that, some 900 kilometers away, Berlin’s invisible hand was quietly at play. Germany determines so much of France’s economic life these days that it…

    From the New York Times : The spectacle began, as it often does, with a local tragedy. Last month, an unarmed black teenager named Michael Brown was shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. In a less media-saturated time, we might have gone on to consider this serious news event on its own terms, with journalists providing facts and insights, and politicians pondering a course of action. But in the mixed-up scrum of politics and media that our so-called national conversation has become, a serious news event is only the start of the news. Soon after the shooting,…

    From the Economist- Alaskans like to talk about how distant the rest of America feels. In downtown Anchorage, with its familiar fast-food restaurants and hotel chains, this line can sound a little affected. Not so in rural Alaska, the swathes of frozen tundra that the state’s inhabitants call the bush. In Napaskiak, a village of 400 people on the west coast of the state, it is not unusual to see a black-robed Russian Orthodox priest riding a four-wheeled motorbike with two children and a wife perched on the back. Rural Alaska is different politically, too. In most of the United States, the…

    A 2012 study left the FDA informing parents not to use benzocaine to provide relief to teething infants and toddlers. Another study done this year and backed by the FDA is warning parents about the dangers of using over the counter numbing gels and liquids on babies under the age of two. In light of this, I compiled a list of five safe teething remedies for baby that I used with my own munchkins when they were going through the dreaded teething stage. Teething biscuits from Gerber are an age old teething remedy that works wonders. I’ve used these with my babies for years and they never…

    Coquette
    30 Sep 2014 | 11:19 am
    Estee Lauder's new Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Synchronized Complex II ($65 at Nordstrom) is one of the best eye serums I have used in a long time. I purchased it at the Estee Lauder counter at Bloomingdales in early August and haven't stopped using it since. The serum comes in a handy pump bottle which makes it easy to dispense. I usually use one pump on my 4th finger, rub my two 4th fingers together and then gently tap under my eye. I use my regular eye cream over it (currently Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Cream). I'm in love with serums overall for my face so I knew an eye serum would…

  • Fringe Worthy: The Best Fringe Bags

    Coquette
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:32 pm
    While I was in Copenhagen and Paris last month, I couldn't help but notice that some of the most stylish ladies were carrying handbags adorned with fringe. The fringed bags I saw were small and looked oh so chic whether it was a crossbody bag or a small clutch. The smaller sized bags worked well showcasing the beautiful fringe without overpowering the gal who was wearing it. Coach's new Creative Director Stuart Vevers had the right vision with the Coach DAKOTAH Small Fringe Flap Crossbody ($725 at Coach). I adore the chain detail and the rich leather look.

    I went into Sephora looking for a brush cleaner and the sales associate there recommended the beautyblender cleanser solid. It was right next to the pink stacks of beautyblender ($19.95) sponges so I just had to ask her more about them. She gave me a great demo about the small sponge and how they have given her a flawless look for her skin. Although I had already splurged on a Giorgio Armani foundation brush a week earlier, I just couldn't resist this little pink sponge. (It's hard to resist anything at Sephora, right?) The sales woman was right. I couldn't believe I had never used this…

    The first day of fall is September 23, and it won’t be long before the green turns orange and we start seeing pumpkins for carving and eating. It’s a man’s job to stay on top of his wardrobe as the seasons change, naturally, but we at Allens Boots thought we might help with some of our best autumn men’s cowboy boots. Men’s Ariat Heritage Roughstock Boots The thing about men’s cowboy boots (and let’s be honest) is that they come in two basic kinds; the in-your-face, larger-than-life kind, and the classic, timeless kind that seem made to blend in.

    There are just so many fall coats to choose from...But if you were going to pick just one, consider the camel coat. It is is the perfect fall neutral. From blacks to browns and color, camel will work with everything in your closet. Mix it with bright pops of color, any pattern under the sun, or stick to a mixing-and-matching of other solid neutrals — a camel coat will not disappoint. With camel, almost any outerwear style works. I’m currently loving a long-line blazer-style coat in this fickle autumn weather, but you can drop the hem all the way to a duster!

Not just for spooky festivities, but also because October is enveloped in my favorite season, and this month is right around the time it really starts to get good.

  • Buying & Selling Clothes on ThredUP: My Experience

    ThredUp, the secondhand store that looks like a new, mid-range clothing store with a price glitch. Stocking brands like Banana Republic, Donna Karan and J. Crew literally next to luxury labels like Jimmy Choo and Diane Von Furstenberg can put you in danger of rattling the retail industry. Especially when, on average, you cut MSRP by approximately 80% and source your clothing from customers of other retailers. It’s a pretty punk-rock way to participate in the online fashion retail game, if you ask me.   Wearing my insanely priced Seychelles from ThredUp – $17! I was introduced…

    It’s so rare to come across an excellent band that has both a male and female vocal presence. There are a few in this little explosion of indie rock bands we’ve seen over the last five years – Wild Child, and the now (tragically) defunct Civil Wars, to name a couple. The Echo Friendly offer a heartbreaking cup of warm cocoa in the form of their first album, Love Panic, which has not received nearly the amount of attention it deserves. The first song I heard from The Echo Friendly was Same Mistakes in October 2012, almost a year after it became available on their Same…

Source: Milkteef‘s Review Usually when we see a tinted balm, it ends up being less tint and more balm.

The women of the world don’t have enough light-colored coats. For that matter, neither do the rest of the gender spectrum. We should all resolve to own more cream-colored coats, and wear them in fall and winter, specifically. It makes it more magical both to see on other people and, let’s be honest, wearing a white coat makes you feel like Grace Kelly or Glenda the Good Witch, right? It’s powerful and, at…

    I’ve been blogging about shopping & personal style for a long time. I didn’t go back and count, but can you guess how many times I called something “perfect?” or wore something I referred to as “the perfect __________?” A lot of times. Too many times.Here’s the thing I had to come to terms with when I realized I had too much stuff: there is no such thing as perfect; when it comes to our wardrobes, or anything else in life, really. There’s not a perfect jacket, or perfect pair of jeans, perfect tote, perfect boots, perfect ANYTHING. No body…

    Photo Credit: Medium In 2008 I saw Erykah Badu in concert. New Amerykah (part one) had just been released and she spent a bulk of the first half of the show singing songs from the new album and providing longwinded stories about them. Ok. Fine. She told us she had titled this show The Vortex and she didn’t care that we had paid money, she was taking us where she wanted us to go. Ok. Fine. Somewhere in the middle, Badu came out with two large medicine balls and did an entire interpretative dance as she sang ‘Green Eyes’. People were unmoved, so much so that they moved towards the exit…

    There is no doubt that social media can be destructive to one’s relationship. We all have either witness it first hand or was a bystander to a friend or family member. New data not only confirms what we already know, but also suggests a social media prenup may not be far-fetched in today’s social media savvy era. In a study published in 2010, more than 80 percent of attorneys surveyed by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers said that they’ve witness a rise in the use of social networking evidence in divorce trials over the last five years.

    It seems like today’s modern man just doesn’t understand the modern, liberated woman. Plus, with social media where half-naked Instagram hotties reign supreme and men enjoy access to never-ending streams of porn, it also seems they have unrealistic expectations of the average woman’s looks, size, and sexual needs. We won’t even get into how they feel about relationships, if they even desire a committed, monogamous relationship to begin with. The point is, the battle of the sexes is real. But enter College Humor who has decided to provide us with a little funny by releasing a…

    In 1854, Louis Vuitton founded his House. In 1896 his son, Georges Vuitton, created The Monogram in honour of his late father. An icon was born. The Monogram was revolutionary when it appeared. This most particular and personal of signatures was instantly transformed into a universal symbol of modernity in the hands of Georges Vuitton: it is one of the first exercises in elevated branding and a defining sign of a global culture to come. In 1965 Gaston-Louis Vuitton, recounted how his father, Georges, had created the motifs on The Monogram canvas: ‘First of all, the initials of the company…

    As I begin to make my way into the work force I find myself wanting to look more sharp and presentable but not over dressed because I do live in florida. So lately I’ve been trying my hand at t-shirts and trousers with either Sperry’s or slip-on loafers. It’s a simple look that doesn’t really take much to put together and it’s easy for me to layer up when it finally does get cool. Below are some pieces and inspiration for this simple yet professional look. For this look try these: herring bone trousers , penny loafers , white tee For this look try these:…

    Take a stylish cue from Kanye (yes, we love his style) and this fall, throw on a over sized coat over your jeans and tees.

I’m sure there’s some of you out there that might help out with thanksgiving dinner or maybe even some who cook it all on your own (props if you do), but for the most part our job is just to dig in and eat! Below are some outfit ideas with pieces you probably already own.   If you’re a jeans and tee kinda guy like me then just add a knit sweater with some with some leather.

  • Will Breast Implants Cause Back Pain?

    Kelly Brown
    27 Sep 2014 | 4:43 pm
    While it is possible that large breasts can affect and exacerbate back pain, it’s not necessarily true that they are the cause of that back pain. There’s a difference between back pain cause by large breasts and back pain cause by being overweight or needing to improve physical fitness, but breast size is often blamed. Factors such as a lack of exercise and a corresponding lack of strength in the core muscles can do much more in causing back pain than large breast implants. How Large Breasts Affect Posture The weight of large breasts can cause a significant shift in the center of gravity…

Read her interview here.  But what plastic surgeon in their right mind would perform such a procedure? Money talks, maybe. But now developments in the story are sayings it’s all a big hoax for a Florida massage therapist Alisha Hessler to gain attention. I’d say she has indeed gotten the attention she wished for.

    I finally visited the Rent the Runway showroom in West SoHo this past week (a Flatiron store recently opened as well), as my friend Lisa tried on dress after glorious dress - Alberta Ferreti, Marchesa Voyage, Red Valentino! - for a series of work events. So, when an invitation for next week's semi-annual sample sale landed in my inbox, my calendar was promptly marked. While past events suggest that many of the dresses at the sample sale will show damage from wear, there will certainly be some diamonds in the rough.

    L to R: Nocturne, Pastiche, Heirloom, Melange, Farrago One of the things I love about JINSoon's collections is how tight and directional they feel. The fall launch, created in collaboration with downtown designer Tess Giberson, is no exception to this rule. The neat capsule of 5 nail lacquers - some metallic and some with fine specks of sparkles - were born backstage at New York Fashion Week last season. And while fall's JUST arrived (quite literally today) I've already dabbled in what I'd consider the star of the bunch - Heirloom, an incomparable shimmering teal. Like all JINSoon lacquers,…

In it, the otherwise well-behaved main character Claudia Kincaid rebels against the dull monotony of her life and escapes to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, enlisting her middle brother Jamie in the process. A thoroughly grand adventure follows, and the two wind up living undetected in the museum for a full week. Can you even imagine? After reading the book, I was left with THE most obvious fantasies - I mean, who wouldn't want to have an iconic institution like The Met entirely to themselves? The…

More importantly, interpreting the latest and greatest fall goodness based on individual style. Which leads me to Marissa Webb. What an amazing collection this season! Solids speak to the season. However, they also say 'timeless.' This collection is well suited for all time. For many body shapes. I love the layers. And non-layering pieces. Great staples all around.   Available at Marissa Webb

    This is everywhere. And I swore I wouldn't post it. But honestly, I am so mesmerized by it that I can't help myself. Isabel Marant, of course. One of my favorite designers mastering the blanket sweater trend for fall. This Italian-made knit with touches of soft wool and alpaca, features a black, anthracite and dark-brown motif that taps into the label's global-traveler aesthetic. Teamed with the soft wool-blend woven wrap skirt with frayed trims and asymmetric hem, this is comfortably fabulous! While I never go for matchy matchy, this is my exception.  Available at Net-a-Porter

    Among the many lip color trends this season, I am gravitating toward nudes. While this may seem like a no-brainer, or an easy everyday look for most, I have a harder time with nudes. I feel more comfortable in highly pigmented color. My favorite being berry. Thankfully, reds and berries will make an impact this fall, as well. And I am stocked, with plenty to choose from. However, I do want to experiment with this beautiful warm nude by Chanel — Rouge Coco Shine in Intime. Perhaps a little gloss atop?

Between shopping with clients, preparing their wardrobes for fall, and getting closets purged and organized in general, style expression is on the loose!

And these designers have proven that anyone can embrace and enjoy the sometimes-flamboyant shiny look.

    In advance of the impending renovation of the famous Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, the new 'David Chipperfield: Sticks and Stones' exhibition opens today at the iconic venue - almost fifty years after its completion. Originally designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (notably the celebrated architect's last major construction), the gallery has been a landmark of Modernism since its opening in 1968. Its steel roof, touching lightly upon a series of eight columns, seemingly suspended in mid-air, defines its pared down aesthetic - a key element of its creator's oeuvre. It also…

    Unveiled with great fanfare in central London, the new XE is the car that’ll take Jaguar’s game up a notch or two. Parent company JLR is still ramping up the profits, but the big bucks are still coming from Land Rover, even though the Jaguar range has seen some major debuts in recent years. Volume drives profit in the auto industry, which is why the XE is such an important vehicle.  First you have to look beyond the rather excitable launch event (which had echoes of the painfully sincere futurism of GM’s grandly staged Motoroma events of the 1950s and 1960s) and the chunky…

There are many claimants to this prestigious title, especially in a car market that feels saturated with high-end, big-cost cars pitched at the swelling wealth pool of the world's emerging markets. The Continental GT V8 S is a recent addition to the range. Bentley has always suggested that the hefty GT model would persist as a 'living classic', just as Porsche has…

That is to say, the characters that Elmgreen and Dragset have planted within their dystopian interiors - an innocent-but-damned baby, a forlorn teen in a hoodie, a body drowned in a concrete swimming pool - are alter egos for all of us.

    If there’s one thing I always carry in my purse, it’s a good lip balm. Especially when the weather cools down and the air is crisp, proper skin (and lip) hydration is so important. That being said, lip balm is another easy-to-make beauty DIY that I highly recommend. Here are 5 reasons why: 1. It’s Inexpensive! Let’s be real, buying high-quality beauty products can get really expensive.

Rapunzel and Flynn are my favorite characters to meet, and we talked for a long while of dying her hair purple. Flynn wasn't into the task of dying 70 ft hair, but Rapunzel was pretty adamant about it. Pics to come of that…

After the cover shoot - click here to see the photos - here is another editorial by Chuando & Frey. This time Matthew Terry is showing is keeping it cool - and hot - by applying a coat of wax on his car! It is always hard to imagine why a model would actually act like that on a car ... under the rain ... so I figure that applying some wax ... while being a bit tipsy ... sounds pretty logical. Because why not? More images of this gorgeous spread after the…

It’s very simple and you can mix it up with different pieces you have in your wardrobe. For this look, I brought back my fave top from fashion week. I love that it breaks that old fashion rule and mixes navy with black. Then I just added leather leggings, this week’s staple and my splurge stilettos to finish the look. On a side note, I just discovered that my satchel now comes in all new colors.

We’ve got you covered with two basic tips! First, do not put your summer pieces away while they are soiled or stained. It is very important to remove any and all stains (especially sweat stains) from garments before storing them, because over time stains that are invisible (champagne or clear liquid) can turn yellow. Sweat stains are very tough on clothes, as perspiration can change the color in clothes and damage them…

With an emphasis placed on the product itself, eclectic frontier styling combines with native prints and a traditional hiking aesthetic to bring this outdoor range to life.

Inspired by their love of both fashion and football, Canadian retailer OTH is partnering up with football club ‘The Ringleaders’, and Vans Vault, on a new collaboration that aims to honor this movement.

Teaming up with H20 giant, Evian, the Parisian fashion house dresses the brand’s 2014 bottle with the same zig-zag pattern that runs through its FW14 David Lynch-inspired collection.

    Boost your body’s immune system and its flu-fighting, I-refuse-to-get-sick ability with a regular, high-intensity workout routine. A report released by the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine just after the peak of flu season this year notes that vigorous exercise can reduce your chances of catching the bug. Using the online tool Flusurvey, researchers gathered data from more than 4,800 participants. They found that logging at least 2.5 hours of vigorous exercise per week can reduce your chances of catching the flu by roughly 10%. Intensity is key, as moderate exercise produced no…
  • From Girls To Broadway: What Can't Andrew Rannells Do?

    Erin Cunningham
    1 Oct 2014 | 4:00 pm
    You may know him as Elijah, Lena Dunham's gay ex-boyfriend on Girls (yes, the one who slept with Marni that time — #drama). Maybe you're familiar with him as Bryan from NBC sitcom The New Normal. Or, if you're a Broadway buff, you'll instantly recognize him for his Tony-nominated role of Elder Price in The Book of Mormon. Basically, what we're saying is, Andrew Rannells wears tons of hats. In mid-August, the 36-year-old Nebraska native, who had just wrapped work on Season 4 of Girls and the upcoming film The Intern, returned to his theater roots to shake his thing on stage as the lead in…
  • This Horse Stable Was Transformed Into Something Brilliant

    E/L Studio transformed an 1800s horse stable that was an abandoned property in a neglected alley in Washington, DC, into an architect’s storefront studio with a home above . The white brick building looks unassuming from the street making the interior quite an unexpected surprise. Related: This Home In Greenwich CT.

The NYC-based milliner has gone straight from the top of the hat game (her fedoras, equestrian toppers, and beanies have graced some of fashion's coolest heads) to master another arena entirely: shoes.

    Leeann Duggan, Sydney Hass
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:30 pm
    A little secret, just between friends: No matter what you heard in The Devil Wears Prada, most fashion editors don't replace their entire wardrobe every six months. Nope. Instead, we bide our time, scouting out those one or two super-special pieces per season that make our closets (and hopefully by extension our lives) complete. And, when we finally pull out the plastic, it's for that one item that's going to thoroughly enhance the way we dress. Don't believe us? Then you clearly haven't seen the goods our editors are eyeing this fall. Get ready for long, lean sweaters; schoolgirl kilts with…

    Based mainly on the works of physicist Kip Thorne, who conceived a film concept with producer Lynda Obst, Interstellar might just be director Christopher Nolan’s most complex movie since Memento (2000). In fact, to deduce and fully appreciate the science behind it, Nolan even attended courses at CalTech. With actors Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Bill Irwin, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine, Interstellar tells the story of a not so distant future when mankind faces a certain extinction. With the last days on the horizon, a group of explorers journey into deep…

    Company officials call it a “technology demonstrator.” But to the rest of us, however, the new Lamborghini Asterion LPI910-4 Plug-in Hybrid Concept is a stunning work of automotive art. Based on a monocoque carbon fiber chassis, Asterion is Lamborghini’s first Plug-in Hybrid model and features a naturally aspirated 5.2-liter V10 engine capable of 610 horsepower. An additional 300 horsepower, provided by three electric motors onboard, gives the Asterion a total of 910 horsepower. This means it can go from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.0 seconds flat with a top speed of 320 km/h (198 mph).

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Every brand, no matter how iconic, needs a refresh every once in awhile. As the market shifts, companies must evolve with it or risk becoming obsolete. Retail is particularly fast moving, and with an inexhaustible selection of similar items, it’s becoming ever more difficult for brands to stay relevant and fresh in the minds of consumers. In 2011, classic American brand Levi’s decided it was time for a facelift. Though the company felt it had come to represent a certain kind of salt-of-the-earth authenticity, it also realized it hadn’t challenged itself enough creatively.

Unveiled just a head of the Paris Motor Show at the Volkswagen Group night celebration, the Sportback concept features rather large 21-inch wheels, smaller mirrors, and is somewhat a cross between the TT and A3. The dramatic changes can be found in the overall size of the TT Sportback Concept -- wider by 6cm, longer by 29cm, and with a wheelbase that's been extended by 12cm -- compared to the existing TT. Powered by a 400-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged TFSi engine…

During her last year there, she met Shelley Fox, the…

  • Shop Need Supply Co.: A Lookbook Lovers Best Friend

    Emma Klug
    23 Sep 2014 | 6:21 am
    Online shopping often gets a bad rep for not being the best shopping experience. Compared to brick and mortar shopping trips, online shopping doesn’t allow you to feel the fabric of the clothing, try it on before you buy it, or interact with sales associates who can often offer good advice while purchasing decisions. However, as a frequent online shopper myself, I must say that the cons of online shopping can often be outweighed by the pros, and Need Supply Co. is a prime example of this. Need Supply Co. is a clothing store based in Richmond, VA, that got its start in 1996 by selling a…

    Shoes are my absolute favorite fashion item. Whether it’s a fresh pair of heels, loafers, flats or boots – a new pair of shoes can easily upgrade an entire outfit and change my attitude for the better. There’s nothing like the feeling of finally finding the perfect shoes, the ones that can complete an outfit and tie together my style. Anyway, bad shoe puns aside, as of late I’ve been attempting to upgrade my wardrobe for the fall 2014 season.

    What is it about painted nails? For me, it’s the finishing touch on an outfit, a flash of color as you type, hand off an important memo, or take notes during a meeting. As a life-long nervous nail biter, nail polish helps me leave my nails alone. Depending on the season, I’ll paint my nails pretty much any color, though I’ve been known to avoid yellow or green. Thankfully, I work in a more casual office setting, so my coworkers are more likely to comment on my polish color rather than lift an eyebrow. While I like changing up my colors fairly often, that doesn’t mean I…

    The female relationship with shoes is the stuff of legends. And there is an increasing amount of men who care almost as much about their shoes too. It’s women’s shoes, however, that tend to be hyper-focused on fashion over practicality. While there are plenty of designer shoe brands for men and some men’s shoes even have small heels, it’s rare that a man buys a pair of shoes he can barely walk in. But women’s shoes often place good looks over comfort, resulting in sore feet and even high-heel related accidents. Is it possible to have both fashionable and…

    1 Oct 2014 | 10:19 am
    Hong Kong’s student protesters are putting the civil back into civil disobedience with a citywide demonstration that is well-supplied, courteous, organized and most importantly peaceful. This is probably the most non-violent demonstration with the nicest protesters that this world has ever seen, despite the clashes last Sunday when police pepper sprayed and fired tear gas on unarmed civilians. The situation has calmed since then, and it didn't stop an estimated…read more »      View Gallery (12 images)

  • PairXWear: The Horween Leather X New Balance M998DW

    Edwin Tetteh
    1 Oct 2014 | 3:52 pm
    Earlier in the week, we got word of a crazy collaboration between Horween and New Balance. If you know nothing about Horween, trust us when we say that they play zero games when it comes to leather. They are leaders in their industry and their stuff is top notch. So it makes tons of sense that New Balance tapped on them to create this buttery, leather ‘M998DW’. Although the sneakers come with a price tag that may make you cringe, they’re totally worth it. We put together some items to match these plush kicks — check them out below. TOPS The top of your outfit is…

    1 Oct 2014 | 3:02 pm
    October is right around the corner and that means all of our dorky, pseudo-Satanistic friends are jumping for joy. Given that Halloween is celebrated at the end of this month, it might be the one time of year that their tweets about “the mark of the beast” and inverted crosses are actually somewhat fitting. We most likely won’t be sacrificing any goats in the near future, but we do appreciate and accept people from all backgrounds. Plus, think about it — bands that write songs about the devil rule (see here, here or here); and black is universally understood as the…

    In time for leaf-crunching season, Native Shoes has teamed up with creative collective The Madbury Club, to produce “The Foxhole Brigade” – a photoshoot that interprets Native‘s FW14 Print Collection. With an emphasis placed on the product itself, eclectic frontier styling combines with native prints and a traditional hiking aesthetic to bring this outdoor range to life. A particular focus is placed on the Fitzsimmons, a play on the traditional hiking boot with non-traditional aesthetics, including a perforated neoprene sock and hand-buffed upper. Like all Native…

    1 Oct 2014 | 8:48 am
    In the ’70s and ’80s, a subculture emerged in the UK, creating a new style phenomenon — “the Casual”. Originally hailing from Liverpool and Manchester, groups of football supporters dressed in expensive gear from unconventional designers and other sports realms, (usually racked from various shops while on tour in Europe). Inspired by their love of both fashion and football, Canadian retailer OTH is partnering up with football club ‘The Ringleaders’, and Vans Vault, on a new collaboration that aims to honor this movement.

  • KENZO X Evian Water = Luxury Necessity

    1 Oct 2014 | 7:28 am
    KENZO‘s playful exploration of everything in the world continues with its latest output: water. Teaming up with H20 giant, Evian, the Parisian fashion house dresses the brand’s 2014 bottle with the same zig-zag pattern that runs through its FW14 David Lynch-inspired collection. The results are striking and elegant, postmodern in aesthetic, and should make you look much cooler than anyone drinking a regular water bottle. When you hear someone say they need this, remember, they actually kinda do. RELATED: THIS KENZO FALL/WINTER 2014 CAMPAIGN VIDEO IS INCREDIBLY STRANGE. The post…

     We’ve all rushed to school to deliver something for our child who has forgotten lunch, a musical instrument or even a signed consent form.

According to TMZ, sources close to Kunis said the actress delivered Tuesday at Cedars Sinai Hospital, where she arrived alone, without any entourage or family. The couple got engaged last February, after Ashton had a totally low-profile relationship with 51-year-old Demi Moore (note: sarcasm) though he and Kunis met on the set of “That ’70s Show” in 1998.

    Hi, I’m Elisa, I’m 27 and I don’t have any tattoos. If you meet me at the club or we first get acquainted at a concert you might think “Sure she has a tattoo somewhere, it’s just not showing.” Every once in a while one of my friends of ten years and more stare at me and say: “Oh wait, you don’t have ANY tattoos??” Yes, sir. I’m a 27 alternative girl who’s had her hair every colour of the rainbow and has tried at least every alternative clothing style once, but have never got inked. Why I don’t have tattoos No,…

    The perception many people have of vintage clothes as being old and fusty, or somehow cheaper than hitting the high street actually couldn’t be further from the truth. Whether you have a silk 1920s gown that you treasure or a pair of 1950s Chanel shoes that once belonged to your grandmother, vintage garments are precious pieces (and in some cases, family heirlooms) that need to be looked after and cared for properly. So what is the best way to look after your vintage clothes to ensure they’re still in great condition for the next generation? Here are a few hints and tips:Store Your…

On the walk home on Saturday, King gave Harlow two theme songs “she’s so comfy” and “she’s so tired”. She dug the comfy version, because she was in her comfy pants (the tired version not so much, even though it was truer than true) – and then they sang “I’m so comfy, you don’t even know” all the way home (better than…

I use it almost everyday, when we are outside playing and when I am at home working or just hanging out.

    1 Oct 2014 | 2:53 pm
    It’s time to trade in your BB or CC creams for blur creams, the newest trend in miracle makeup. These facial transformers hide fine lines, large pores and other imperfections by reflecting light off the skin. The result is a blurred, soft-focus effect — similar to the way filters on a camera (think Instagram) can improve your appearance. Here are five of our favorites: Garnier 5 Second Blur Instant Smoother, $17 In an instant, Garnier’s cream evens out skin tone and minimizes imperfections. This product is great for using as a primer under or blended with your regular…

In her “#AskLena” video series, Lena gives her input on topics ranging from how to deal with having bad sex, to having an unfunny girlfriend and being  plus sized. As expected, Lena kills it with her comedic timing as she gives out her self-effacing advice, all of which encourage both self-acceptance and confidence.

    Often incorporated into their sporty luxe designs, designers like Alexander Wang and Rebecca Minkoff have helped mesh become a hit on the runway each season. The loosely woven fabric shows no sign of going away anytime soon. One of the reasons for its staying power is that it manages to show just enough skin when needed and adds a small dose of laid back cool to any look. Recently we’ve started to see ladylike interpretations of mesh and we can’t get enough. Valentino’s heavily embroidered designs incorporated mesh panels that resulted in lush designs rather than your…

When you take a pregnancy test; if the hormone is detected,congratulations you are prego! I always thought when I got pregnant that I would start gaining weight like crazy but that wasn’t the case. Back in July of 2012 I started losing weight without trying, by the end of July my period was late so that prompted me to take a test even though I was on the pill. It was + positive. I was surprised and excited. By the end of August I was…

    If you’re a long time reader you’ll know that once upon a time I was a big fan of 7 For All Mankind jeans. The thing that prompted a divorce (we are still friends) is that the style I loved oh so much would get a hole in the upper inner thigh area like clockwork. The concept of patching jeans on a routine basis got old so I had to find another option. There was a short-lived Levi’s stint, but the one style I could fit in made me feel frumpy. Very frumpy. And for you Levi’s lovers, I get it. They have nice jeans. They just don’t fit my body type! It turns out when you have…

Short shorts are great, but you don’t need to walk around with your butt cheeks hanging out. For real. Ain’t no body go time for that! When you do it means you’ve crossed over to the dark side of the classy vs trashy line. Here we have a woman sporting the trend in question, but you’ll notice that her butt cheeks aren’t exposed.

I rounded the block and when I was headed back up Crosby she was still there chatting away. That’s when I motioned that I wanted to chat with her when she got off the phone.

    Hello there folks! Happy new week. I wish you a healthy, fashionable and productive week ahead! What have I been up to? I am on a business and mini-vacation in New York. I am also covering Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week. The bi-annual event began on September 4th and ends on September 11th, 2014. Prior to arriving in New York for fashion week, I was asked by Designer Carrie Hammer to model in her show. When she informed me about the theme of the show ‘Role Models Not Runway Models,’ it was simply a no brainer to say “Yes!” I walked her runway show alongside some…

    THE LONDON PLANE This is long overdue but we had such a great time in beautiful Seattle.  It reminds me a lot of San Francisco.  Great vibe, people, right on the water….and a great food and coffee scene.  We were there celebrating my sister-in-laws graduation (she’s now a doctor!) and then spent a few days touring around (in which the itinerary was based around restaurants and food!)   The first stop we made was for lunch at The London Plan (thanks to the amazing recommendation from Madison Ginnett of Dessert Pocket).

    Last week, I got to spend a lovely evening at The Mason Jar in San Francisco that’s owned by husband and wife team Pete and Hope Colling.   The Mason Jar is a home goods store with a well-curated collection of everything from home decor to luxury candles and artisanal soaps to jewelery, coffee tables and the most amazing pillows. The store opened just last year in October 2013 and is located at 2149 Union Street.   I joined an intimate group and the owners for a DIY Tea Time event to kick-off the launch of their DIY events.  There were three different tea choices (green, black, and…

    Hog Island Oyster Co. just reopened their oyster bar in San Francisco’s historic Ferry Building after being closed for a few months for expansion. Hog Island was one of the opening tenants of the ferry building during its transformation as a food marketplace in 2003. It’s a very popular spot in SF for locals and tourists alike. Tomales Bay, on the coast of Northern California, is where they harvest and shuck the amazing, hand raised, sustainable oysters and shellfish. The newly opened space has an expanded bar and much more seating. There is still a line outside, but don’t…

    Coffee is quite the trend here in the San Francisco Bay Area. I admit it – I’m a coffee snob.  I do cappuccino’s and latte’s. Double shots. Whole or soy milk. And I love getting my coffee “for here” and taking an extra 10 minutes to sit and enjoy it. Especially when you get to enjoy the beautiful space.  Most of our Blue Bottle Coffee trips are to visit their stand at the Farmer’s Market every Saturday morning at the Ferry Building.  Word got out that they opened a new spot in Oakland, and not just any new coffee spot.  The Blue Bottle opened in…

    Donuts! There is a new generation of donuts – from Doughnut Dolly to Donut Savant, Dynamo Donuts and more. And I love donuts. They remind me of childhood – about once a month, my dad would go to the donut shop early Sunday morning and get my brother and I some of our favorites – old fashioned chocolate, maple bars and sprinkled donuts.  As you approach Temescal Alley, you notice a line and yes, it’s for Doughnut Dolly. It’s a cute, super small donut store. You enter and they have donuts in a basket – simple, sugar crusted donuts – and you have three…

    [Little Red Dress, Anne Klein // Little Royal Blue Dress, Tahari // Little Bright Blue Dress, Calvin Klein] A reader writes to ask: If I get a non-black LBD, what colors/cut/fabrics would be a best bet for nearly year-around use? While the non-black Little Black Dress may seem like a contradiction in terms, it’s not if you think of the LBD as being Your Wardrobe Staple Dress. Keep the “little” and the “dress,” but toss the “black” if it’s not your style (or if you want to mix it up with a second option). For a year-’round fabric, you really can’t go wrong with a…

  • Don’t be daunted by statement necklaces!

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    10 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    Chunky, blingy, colorful, big, cascading or bright. Sometimes all of those things at once. Statement necklaces live up to their name, and they can seem a little intimidating. You can’t hide behind your outfit when you’re wearing one. Paradoxically, I became a fan of the statement necklace because jewelry is my weak spot. I have a good set of basic pieces, but tended to rotate through a handful of simple, and nearly identical, silver necklaces with the occasional pair of earrings to match. Jewelry was always a bit of an afterthought, and you could tell. But put on a big dramatic necklace…
  • How to know when your wardrobe is “done”

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    2 Sep 2014 | 4:00 am
    This reader has an interesting question about the process of building a clothing wardrobe: What are the signs that my wardrobe is basically “established” (as opposed to an overall in progress) and I can pat myself on the back? What can I expect in terms of phases, time/effort? For anyone in the midst of fashion frustration, the idea of having a wardrobe that’s done can seem like a faraway, even impossible, destination. But you can get there, mamas! Here’s how to do it, and what to expect. Signs your wardrobe is established First, let’s talk about what the destination looks…

    The Little Marc Jacobs collection for spring 2015 may be a unique kids fashion collection because it may be the last one to be directly influenced by Marc Jacobs himself. There is a new design team at Marc by Marc of Luella Bartley and Katie Hillier whose first collection has just been presented in New York in the womenswear shows with a very different look to the main line and it will be interesting to see how the kids line is affected. For now there are still the mini me influences of the main Marc Jacobs line coming through with some gorgeous red sequinned and pleated dresses while the…

The beautiful cot has a padded back curved all the way around which not only eliminates the need for tie on cot bumpers but as the child grows and the bed converts to a sofa gives a comfy place to curl up and read or watch videos on. The rest of the collection is flexible fully customisable and adaptable as you can see from the photos below, the colours are muted and inspired by…

    1 Oct 2014 | 10:27 am
    If there was a time when you were afraid of wearing shiny clothes, forget about it! We are living the era when fashion knows no rules, the era in which mass market fashion giants are feeding the hungry fashion consumer and us(the fashion addicts) are dreaming the day when we are going to own our first Chanel bag. But still, let’s go back to the “no rules” thing. When I was little, I remember my mother’s friend who had a red sequin dress. God, I fell in love of that piece instantaneously. I tend to think that was the “shininess” of the beautiful red dress…

    Let’s get straight to the point, shall we?! Over the past decades the pointed toe shoe trend has come and gone a number of times! Spring/Summer 2014 brought the trend back stronger than ever embracing their sharpness with most collections seen on the catwalks and fitting perfectly with any other trend! Most certainly pointed toe shoes can be a little daring, but when worn right, they suit with any style adding a chic, sophisticated and sleek touch! Looking back to the 20th century, pointed toe shoes were in the fashion scene when the style icon Audrey Hepburn gave them a new identity…

    Alright, dear readers, it’s Monday so I thought I would lighten your beginning of the week blues with something a little fun. Upon my usual perusal of the internet,  I came upon an article titled “Suitsy: Like a onesie for grown-up men.” I think we can all agree that with a title like that, there was no way I was gonna pass up a skim of such a wild idea. Jesse Herzog is the brain behind what could be a revolutionary piece for the working man (and hopefully woman’s) wardrobe. As you can see in the eight second video above, the Suitsy is essentially like a professional…

    I had a momentary freak out as I stumbled up a beautiful dress in a popping, cherry red at last week’s Fashion of Goodwill Runway Show. If you caught my posts last week, you know that Deb (of Real Girl Runway) and I stalked the racks to get our hands on pieces that were featured in the show. Well, I can say I sure didn’t think I would be able to snag the fabulous dress that Catherine Meloy, the stunning President and CEO of Goodwill of Greater Washington, wore during her opening remarks. This piece was wedged between two heavy winter coats and therefore, it slipped the eyes of my…

I know I do… Ok, all boisterousness aside, St. Louis, MO female emcee Mz. 007 flexes this bravado on her new single, “Important” Before plunging into the bass heavy track, Mz. 007 starts off the song disparaging those who have something to say about her weight. The song is silly and narcissistic in the vein of Remy Ma’s “I’m Conceited”, even sprouting the piece de resistance “I’m coming through, bitch, I’m gorgeous.” What I love even more? All of this coming from a…

Although the streets are still pumping with normcore effects (who can turn down comfy trainers in between running for shows?), they’re still some folks who are dressing up. Mazel! What we’re seeing?

In a collection littered with splattered paint and REALLY bright hues of pink, red, blue and greens, Christopher Bailey sent his models out in a more relaxed ready to wear collection. Sheer dresses in pretty pastels were worn under indigo-cropped denim jackets. The house’s signature trenches were in a unique linen and paint splattered. There were even Birkenstock like sandals and a denim jacket with shearling underneath. A bit uneven for the classic house, the collection features the stuff of…

    Well, we weren’t expecting this for spring, Tom Ford. Breaking the stereotype that florals and bright hues are the go to for April/ May, the designer went dark and rock n’ roll for his latest collection. Models with heavy black eyeliner and messed tresses, strolled out in black mini dresses, skirts with fitted black jackets, thigh-high stockings and exaggerated platform heels. It was very Hedi Slimane for Saint Laurent but all old school Tom Ford for Gucci. Glad to see that he hasn’t lost his sexy edge. See the full collection below!   Images via Style.com

  • 1930s Screen Icons: Myrna Loy

    vilvintage
    1 Oct 2014 | 5:09 am
    Myrna Loy is perhaps known best for her roles as femme fatale in silent movies. Because of her exotic beauty she was often cast in the role of Asian or Eurasian characters but later became a popular female lead in romantic comedies where she was frequently paired with William Powell and Clark Gable. Here are some things you might not have known about Myrna Loy: When she was just 16 she posed for her high school sculpture teacher for the central figure in the sculpture Fountain of Education (photo below). Interestingly this sculpture also appears in the opening credits of the movie Grease. It…
  • Movie Tuesday: X the Unknown (1956)

    I treated myself to a 1950s Hammer B-movie yesterday: X… the Unknown. It kills… but cannot be killed! It rises from 2000 miles beneath the earth to melt everything in its path.. machine gun bullets, flame throwers… nothing can stop it! Sounds fabulously terrifying eh? Happily I can report that it wasn’t very terrifying at all, which is about right for me. I’m a total chicken when it comes to properly scary horror films. Thinking about those twins in The Shining still brings me out in a cold sweat! So this was the idea movie for me. If you can get past the endless…

    There really couldn’t be a simpler recipe than this, and the beauty of this cake is not only that its packed with fruit, it also has not butter or oil in the recipe (unless you slather it with butter when you eat it of course!). The only thing to remember is to plan ahead, as the fruit ideally needs soaking overnight in the tea before you make your cake. Having said that a few hours soaking will work almost as well. Ingredients 250g dried mixed fruit 250g self raising flour 125g caster sugar 1 egg 1 cup of cold black tea Place your fruit in a bowl and cover with the cold tea. Leave for…
  • Saucy Portraits of 1920s Showgirls (NSFW)

    vilvintage
    26 Sep 2014 | 3:06 am
    Alfred Cheney Johnston is most well-known for his photographs of the girls who performed in the Ziegfeld Follies in the 1910s and 20s. Here are some of his more risqué photos of the girls, including one of Gloria Swanson. They probably aren’t particularly suitable for viewing at work, depending on how open-minded your boss is about nudity! I wonder where these photos would have been published. I imagine they’re a bit too risqué for use in any magazines of the time, so perhaps they were just used for saucy postcards. Anyone know? Above: Caryl Bergman, Ziegfeld Follies girl…

    There’s a lot to be said for the time when we weren’t all glued to our smartphones, but not everything people did to relieve their boredom was a good thing.  After WW2 lots of young men with flying experience and a desire for adrenalin-fueled excitement had limited ways to enjoy themselves. So there came about a real surge in flying stuntmen and women. I particularly love the photo which just shows somebody’s legs sticking up out of the cockpit. I do hope that wing-walking dog is stuffed rather than real though… Above: Photo of stunt man Lewis Krent riding holding on…

  • Geneva Flat by Freaks Freearchitects

    Vicky
    2 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    Paris-based architecture firm, FREAKS Freearchitects hints that there is no clear boundary between private and public. The 35 square meters, open-plan flat, in downtown Geneva, attempts to refine a co-existence of spontaneous openness and intimacy. The flat, tailored to fit many functions, shifts between living and private areas that co-exist with negotiating boundaries. A transparent glass wall functions as the only separation between the closely joined, bedroom and kitchen. Granted, there is no such a thing as privacy unless we simply desire it. As I move through my physical surroundings, I…

    John Pawson’s work almost always starts with straight lines, precisely assembled. Facing the Atlantic Ocean on the south shore of Long Island, Montauk House by John Pawson lines up perfectly with the site topography. With extraordinary precision, the horizontal clean lines engage naturally with the landscape and sand dunes bringing a taste of wilderness. The palette of sensual materials includes sandy finished stucco walls and Ipe wood decks with a natural, silver grey look. The restrained space, respectful of its surroundings, is a dignified oasis of calm. It’s easy to get carried away…
  • Luxemburg House by Richard Meier

    Vicky
    18 Sep 2014 | 12:00 am
    Luxemburg House by Richard Meier & Partners stands in uncompromising whiteness. The white, tiled, three-story rectangular box is classic Richard Meir. Despite its appearance of lightness, an L-shaped, understated façade of white panels helps the occupants maintain their privacy while glass openings let light stream in. The transparency dominates in the back of the house with a block of glass. Meier’s white modernism overflows with great moments of poetry: the geometry of the windows and white enameled aluminum panels form a grid of solid and void, opacity and transparency. The…

The café is located inside the 18th century Palazzo Venier die Leoni, which Peggy Guggenheim purchased for her home to exhibit her 20th century European and American art collection. The unfinished 18th century palace serves as a backdrop of historic references for the white, modern café.

Last fall, she was gearing up for a huge H&M collab, and before that, her sneaker wedges were single-handedly spearheading the athleisure trend that is now so ubiquitous. So where the heck has she been the past 12 months? Marant never went away from the fashion scene. In fact, she just debuted her spring 2015 collection at Paris Fashion Week last Friday.

    Decorating has always been something I enjoyed.  I remember moving into my first apartment and spending the entire first weekend I lived there decorating.  I also remember re-decorating it just a few months later.Over the years of living in new apartments and houses I've realized that as much as I enjoy decorating I also get bored quickly with the decor. In order to be able to change the look of a room or an entire home frequently I've had to learn how to decorate on a budget and still get the change in a room I'm desiring.Here are my top 5 tips on how to decorate on a budget.Tip…

What fashion concentrated on was the hourglass figure that clothing conveyed. The mood of 1950s fashion shifted from previous decades in that people were more willing to break fashion barriers, especially…

    It is hard to believe Fashionably Austin is celebrating the amazing #5 anniversary attending New York Fashion Week.

    DIY Branch WeavingThere’s a certain feeling that comes from creating something with your own two hands. No matter what it may be, the time and effort put forth always leaves a reward, and the satisfying feeling of accomplishment. The art of weaving is one of those things that takes time and patience. I’ve always been drawn to large wall hanging weavings, but it wasn’t until after I saw them placed around Humboldt House that the desire to create one of my own really sunk in. I love the way a blank wall can instantly be transformed by interlocked textiles. There’s so…

In early fall, there’s nothing quite as quintessential as trudging through a dew-speckled field to pick the season’s first apples, unless of course you bring them home and transform them into something a little sweet, a little tart, and perfectly delicious. The epitome of cool-weather comfort, apple pie is something we can all appreciate this time of year, and today I’m sharing my recipe for a raw version of this dessert classic. A little…

    For the month of October, when we are not blogging out Halloween (our favorite holiday cause we sell lots of body parts from our mannequin boneyard) we are going to be blogging about Rootstein mannequins. We heard a rumor that the Rootstein company is undergoing a lot of organizational changes and laying off a lot of long time staff members. One of the staff members posted about it on his Facebook page. Given the hefty price tag of a new Rootstein ($1300) as well as the trend towards abstract mannequins instead of the realistic mannequins that Rootstein is known for, there is some speculation…
  • Is a window display portraying a breast feeding mother inappropriate?

    I didn’t know quite how to react when I saw this window display on Pinterest representing a mother breastfeeding her child. Even though the window display was toned down by the use of a headless dress form and cloth baby – as opposed to realistic looking mannequins – it was a bit jarring. But just as I was about to get all prudish about it, I saw this post on Pinterest, which put things into perspective.

Nevertheless, the Oscar de la Renta's version is make the front line just a little bit shorter than the back so it's still formal gown, but not too formal either. Michelle Dockery in Oscar de la Renta mullet gown; as well as Blake Lively in Oscar's mullet gown. Kerry Washington in Oscar de la Renta mullet gown with turquoise…

In fact, I say “home fragrance,” and you’re already thinking of girly Diptyque candles (that’s the one you can’t believe costs $65 … for a candle) or your mom’s Yankee Candle Co. cinnamon fragrance—that’s the one that makes an appearance every Thanksgiving. We can all do better. Like it or not, the first thing that hits you when you walk through a door isn’t so much how everything looks—but how it smells. Right? Take two identical apartments: One smells like lemons,…

    {THE HERO PIECE} Cardigan: Land’s End, $69 Unless you just resolved a seriously drawn-out dispute with Time Warner Cable, you know we’re big fans of the man cardigan here at SG HQ, sharing our love of the classic button-up knit over and over again (as shown here..and here..and here). The sweater conjures up images of male style icons from Kurt Cobain to Mr. Rogers (although his was a zip-up) and is easily adaptable to any guy’s wardrobe. While a few years ago, you could dismiss it as a passing hipster trend, these days you can find the style in nearly any store,…

Somewhere you live specifically because it means you’re planning on living somewhere else—somewhere better—as soon as humanly possible. [Digital download art by The Motivated Type on Etsy] So how to spruce up your existing place without blowing the bank on furniture you don’t want to leave behind (or move)?

    After the visit to The Shard, dad and I whizzed off for dinner at Lanes of London which is just off Marble Arch in Park Lane. I had heard some really good things about Lanes and also was dying to try one of their unique desserts, so it was the perfect place to catch-up over dinner. Inside Lanes of London there is a large bar area and then the restaurant at the back. We were seated through in the restaurant and after a pre-dinner tipple at The Shard I was definitely getting hungry. The menu at Lanes of London is a mixture of British classics and London inspired street food. You can either…

The Empire State Building in New York is one of my favourites and also the Eiffel Tower in Paris. London has only recently added a tall addition to the city with The Shard. I hadn’t been up it yet and when my dad came to visit last week it was a perfect excuse to enjoy the view! We booked tickets for 6pm as I thought it would be a nice time to go before it got dark. It’s really easy to get to The Shard, you can get the Underground to London Bridge and then just follow the…

Sua solução foi estampar um beija-flor…

    A Balmain é uma daquelas marcas que faço um grande esforço para detestar. Sou contra vender trapos furados por fortunas, não gosto de ver vestidos lindos em celebridades de reputação questionável e acredito que qualquer coisa que custe 20 mil dólares é caro demais (esta regra vale por dez quando o objeto em questão é apenas um vestido). Porém, de alguma forma, meus planos sempre caem por terra e acabo me vendo apaixonada pelas criações da marca mais uma vez.A coleção que chegou às passarelas nesta quinta-feira foi uma verdadeira aula de como se manter dentro da proposta do…

    A Louis Vuitton chegou a um impasse quando decidiu trocar sua direção criativa. Afinal, não é nada fácil calçar os sapatos de um mago das idéias como Marc Jacobs. Um dos maiores desafios da marca foi manter sua identidade exploradora, suas vendas altas como sempre e se reposicionar como um epítome de luxo que há anos vinha fugindo de suas mãos. A coleção especial "The Icon and the Iconoclasts" busca resolver a questão pegando emprestado o charme e a criatividade de quem as tem para dar e vender.Twisted Box de Frank Ghery Boxing Suite de Karl Lagerfeld Fleece…

I feel like I need to make up for some lost time here.   There are three really great things about the Knead night menu: 1. Red wine for R20 (prices you don’t see too often in Cape Town…enough said). I usually tend to go for white wine over red, but the Darling Cellars Merlot is the most easy-drinking red wine I’ve ever had. 2. The portion size you get for a R50 pizza or prego roll (I went with a healthier low-carb version and opted for my chicken prego without…

    Last week as I was pulling my sweaters out of storage I also started to look through my cool weather ties. While this primarily refers to wool ties I also include neats or foulards ties in this category. Neat ties are not exclusively cool weather gear, but because I almost exclusively pair them with tweed they fall into this category for me. As I was sorting through these ties I was noticed a theme. I had always known that I was attracted to neats with a pop of color, but what I didn’t know is that I have a strong preference for flower patterns. What is a neat pattern? A neat (also…

    I have been critical of Lands’ End in the past primarily because of issues related to consistency (The Land Ends Ahead), but they do some things well and one of those things is ties. Outside of thrift stores Lands’ End is always one of the first places that I suggest to a young trad looking to build a tie collection. They have very fair prices, a 30% off sale is always just around the corner, and their selection consists of regimental stripes, neats, knits, emblematics, as well all other trad staples. This fall’s lineup is no different. In addition to their standard selection of wide…

According to TMZ, sources close to Kunis said the actress delivered Tuesday at Cedars Sinai Hospital, where she arrived alone, without any entourage or family. The couple got engaged last February, after Ashton had a totally low-profile relationship with 51-year-old Demi Moore (note: sarcasm) though he and Kunis met on the set of “That ’70s Show” in 1998. No word on what the couple named the baby, but we’re really happy for them, and we’ll keep you updated!

    For better or worse, there’s truth to the idea that fashion takes itself entirely too seriously, but there are certain hints that prove there’s a sense of humor lurking in the depths of even the most high-end designer’s repertoire. Often it’s showcased via silhouette, color and texture, or—as we’ve seen lately—the use of certain prints like kitschy lips, eyeballs, bold fruit, polka dots, palm trees, and childlike paint strokes.

That’s how much Dolce & Gabbana’s jeans—the light-washed embellished boyfriend style from the label’s Spring 2015 collection—will run you. Sure, they’re 99 percent cotton and feature Swarovski crystals and patent leather rosebuds, but take a second to process that—over $12,000 for jeans. Other things that we can think of that you could spend $12,000 on? A car, a year’s rent, and even a house in certain parts of the U.S. MORE: Mary…

    A few months ago, I turned a socially (if not personally) significant number in years. The big 3-0. I didn’t struggle, and it was not painful. As a Millennial, the age of “official adulthood” has been continually pushed beyond my grasp for years.

I have, however, noticed a rising awareness of how I dress and present myself. "Age appropriate" means something different for me than it does for someone a few…

Self-presentation is not only about how you visually relate to the world, but also how your relate to yourself. Those complex ideas of self operate beneath the surface, yet color the…

You may resort to that go-to black dress or perhaps go more casual with pair of dark jeans. But what you may not know if that both of those two options are no no’s when it comes to wedding etiquette. Here are the top 10 items of clothing one should not wear to an upcoming wedding: Black: Most tuxedos are black and the chances of seeing a lot of black tuxes at any wedding is very high but the tricky part with black…

    I really don’t like wearing high heels, I try to avoid them whenever possible. Don’t get me wrong, when I see other girls wearing them of course I do approve their styling. It’s just that my height is 1,75cm and it feel like being a giant among most women, not a flattering feeling at all. More over I thing I suffer from bad hearing or something because when in heels I must lean over every time someone speaks to me. So sneakers it is!

  • trends scouting: jewelry headpiece

    giotared
    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…

    “Who are you wearing?” This question made famous by Joan Rivers may have roused mixed reactions, but it’s undeniably fitting to ask. After all, in most red carpet shows, celebrities are often cited based on what they’re wearing and from which designer their outfit comes from. This also makes it easy to pinpoint some of the fashion designers that certain celebrities absolutely love. Armani Giorgio Armani is known to mix shock and glamour in his designs. So it’s no surprise that he’s Lady Gaga’s favorite designer. He recently made stage costumes for her tour, all of which…

The dresses were designed to show off a woman’s body in unusual ways — all transparent, except for crisscrosses of black that covers certain body parts.  While it’s great to have at least one Balmain outfit, you should stock up on clothes that you can wear in various places and occasions.

It can be used to pay for goods and services bought online, as in traditional currencies.

    Dressing well isn’t easy, especially for us shorter gents. Most off the rack clothes don’t fit, so we have to pay extra for clothing alterations. That’s why you should try to buy affordable clothing whenever possible. One great option for high quality, affordable clothing is Combatant Gentlemen (a.k.a. “Combat Gent”). Combatant Gentlemen makes men’s wardrobe staples like Oxford shirts, charcoal suits and v-neck sweaters. You can get these clothes anywhere, but there are five specific reasons why I’m a fan of Combat Gent: Reason #1: They own their own…

Switching up your sleepwear is a great way to stay comfortable and warm, especially during the colder months. But you don’t want to look like a little kid or an old geezer, which means your PJs have to fit. Let’s face it, just like every other type of clothing, lounge pants are not made for shorter gents.

    Yup. T-shirts. Because if you’re under 5’8″, even basic wardrobe staples don’t fit properly. I bet you have the same problem with all of your tees: They’re too long. A t-shirt that fits properly will go 1-3 inches past your belt, no further than halfway down your fly. But even small and extra small tees are several inches too long for most short men. Many go all the way down to the bottom of your fly. Unacceptable. Plus there are other problems with the way t-shirts fit: Maybe you’re a muscular guy, and any t-shirt that fits your shoulders and chest is way…

Having been raised as an athlete with competitive swimming, soccer and field hockey, moving my body is not only natural to me, but a very important part of who I am and the absence of it always makes me feel distinctly...off (both physically and mentally!).

I’m talking tinted moisturizer, bronzer, mascara and lip gloss. No mess and no fuss.Mascara is always a must for me, but knowing I would be coming to Italy in the summer heat, I needed a mascara that didn’t have me looking like a raccoon in a few hours.

Personally, I’m not a huge fan of plaid.  I can’t figure out exactly why.  The only somewhat logical reason I can come up with is I tend to prefer my patterns and prints to move in a more organic and unstructured manner.  Plaid may just be too linear and…

Obvs. Say hello to my accidental autumn essentials – a new faux fur, fedora hat and plaid scarf…  I can’t find the coat and hat online (similar hat), must be different stock in the Portugal stores right now. The hat (and bowls) are actually Zara Home – honestly.how.do.they.keep.doing.it.on.the.fashion.and.homewear.front? – and I cannot wait to wear the coat&hat&scarf with a pair of skinnies… Plus my new Stan Smiths, which I finally bit the bullet and tracked…
  • MONOTONE SCRAPBOOKING

    30 Sep 2014 | 3:18 am
    Seeing Portugal through a black and white digital lens has been an exercise in looking at the beauty of shapes and textures. And although holidays in sunspots are usually all about the colour I wanted to try something different…  On a semantic note, after using the monotone filter on my E-P5, I wanted to check its definition, as monotone usually refers to sound. In case you’re wondering, visually monotone refers to just one tone of colour, but that could be any colour – and monochrome is a sub-category of it referring to black and white…. Anyway, apologies for such a…

    Speediest post ever! I just wanted to show you this fab Ganni-esque coat by Wallis (check this Ganni insta to see what I mean). Another absolute brilliant buy for this autumn… The Wallis designer behind it – who I met at the Wallis Coat Edit – used to work for By Malene Birger which explains the relaxed elegance and deconstructed style; un-tailored shoulders and a big, boxy cut, but in a gorgeous papaya red! I’ve styled it with my new boyfriend Bethnal jeans (yes, those are my initials you spy above the pocket, yes, I am utterly spoiled, thank you to Bethnals!) and…

    Nothing quite says sophisticated lady like good leather. Take a basic pair of skinnies and relaxed shirt then add considered leather accessories to take things to the next level… I have fallen hard for this sweet little Howe bag in graphite by independent British designer M. Hulot. I first spied this brand on the ever-chic and ahead of the game Girl in Menswear. Founder and designer Anna Kreeger has created a very cool, individualistic brand with what she describes as a lo-fi, utilitarian approach and a commitment to purity of design and attention to execution and finish.

    More denim goodness in the form of an interview with Melissa Clement, founder of just-launched British denim brand Bethnals… Introduced to Melissa at LFW – Bethnals hosted a blogger denim suite at The Apartment in collaboration with denim fabric producer iSKO where I tried on the coolest slouchy boyfriends – I completely fell for the denim, the concept and the lady and just had to follow up with a few questions. Melissa, a former buyer at Topshop and Kickstarter crowd-funding success story,  shares her thoughts on the skinny, timeless style, the ‘London Uniform’,…

    Apparently Albueira has some of the most gorgeous beaches, they did not dissappoint! They even have caves that we decided to explore. We suddenly heard noises in the cave and noticed that there were tiny crabs everywhere! They must have been standing still while we were in there and as soon as we were standing still for a moment they would crawl everywhere and make tickticktick noises. They were cute, though! I swam in the ocean again which felt awesome. I haven't done that for years!! It was cold and warm all at the same time, it was so refreshing, I didn't feel like I had enough time,…

    This was one of those five star nights that only come along every once and again. I had an amazing time from start to finish. The ceremony was gorgeous and I didn't even attempt to try to hold the tears when the bride came down the aisle. She looked so gorgeous!! Afterwards there were drinks and everyone greeted everyone and lots of photos and small talk was happening.A little later we all sat by our tables and dinner was served. I was at the best table, I think I laughed non stop though the entire dinner!! We all bet how long the speeches were going to be and I won! I won 8 euro, haha!

    As you may have read in the previous post, this was the day I wore a bikini all day and never got to swim. This is the evening we arrived in Albufeira and it was just at sunset that I got to feel the sand under my feet and walked through the water. It was so amazing. We ended up eating pizza in the restaurant right next to the beach so we got to see the entire sunset. It was amazing. We were also happy to get some rest and get ready for the big wedding the day after this one. Ken and I My dad and I
  • Leaving Lisbon

    Now I realize that it looks like we were in Lisbon for a long time, but we were only there for one and a half day. We just decided to sacrifice sleep and health to see absolutely everything we could the short time we were there. It was gorgeous.After walking around a little bit in Lisbon it was time to head to Albufeira, south in Portugal, where we had a wedding and a beach to go to. Actually, the plan was to go to the beach in Lisbon so I put on a bikini that day, but we decided against it and decided to go to the beach in Albufeira instead considering it was only 2ish hours away. I kept my…

    Wear Me Out

  • Foreign Territory

    1 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Wearing: Skirt Helmut Lang, also love this leather version | Tee Aritzia | Boots Acne Studios | Sunglasses Saint LaurentAs a girl who could happily wear a pair of jeans everyday for the rest of life, skirts are pretty much foreign territory. But, while shopping I decided I wanted skirts for this fall, and now I'm trying to fit them into my wardrobe in a way that doesn't feel too foreign. So, for me, that means dressing it down with a simple tee and some boots (perhaps the most important item in one's fall wardrobe). Then as it gets colder I plan to swap a tee for a…
  • Leather Weather

    Wearing: Pants Mother Denim | Tank Aritzia, Similar | Plaid Shirt Rails | Shoes Miu Miu One of the reasons I could not hold off blogging any longer was that there was no way I would miss out on fall fashion. Fall is definitely my favorite season, I love being able to slowly pile on layer after layer as it gets cooler (but before it gets freaking freezing). The only problem is, sometimes fall weather can be unpredictable. The solution: keep an extra layer around your waist, then if it gets a little cooler you are prepared. For me, this outfit…

                           As part of the new content I'm creating I want to share more of what I see, what I like, and what inspires me. And nothing inspires me quite like a good song. Plus, whether in music videos, on stage, or on red carpets, music and fashion definitely go hand in hand. So, I introduce to you, Music Mondays. Every Monday I will share with you a new song, an old song, or whatever song is stuck in my head that day. This week I have been singing Banks all day, everyday. I just bought her album and now I cannot get…
  • Hello Again..

    28 Sep 2014 | 3:45 pm
    Hey guys! Okay, so I totally underestimated how long it will truly take to be able to makeover my blog. And then on top of that I gave myself a pretty ridiculous time table to do everything in. And the pressure was certainly not helping me figure out a way to make the blog look its best. So, I've decided I am going to resume posting for now, while continuing to work on a new blog template (and reading HTML for Dummies). And whenever the new layout is ready I will update the blog, but until then the show must go on, so:There will be a new post tomorrow, which is part of a completely new…

    Wearing: Shorts Lovers + Friends | Tank Twenty Tees | Shoes BirkenstockYou may have been wondering what is going on with the blog as my posts went from infrequent at best this summer to pretty much completely halted the last two weeks. Well, truth be told, I ran into quite the mental block this summer. But then it hit me, what I need is to revamp the blog because the only way it can be exciting for people to read is if it is once again exciting for me to write. So here's what I'm going to do:First things first, the blog is getting a makeover. New layout, new theme, all that…

    Miu Miu has teamed up with artist/filmmaker Miranda July to create an unusual new messaging app called Somebody, which allows the user to send messages to friends and have them delivered, verbally, by another user nearby (usually a stranger). Inspired by modern life’s preoccupation with communication, technology, avatars and outsourcing, the service evolves relationships with a three-way experience. As part of the launch, July has also created a short 10-minute video of the same name, which puts a fresh and creative twist on the concept of a fashion film by using humour and strikingly…
