    Broke & Beautiful's RSS-Luxe

    18 Sep 2014 | 1:12 pm
    Approaching autumn & winter, I have almost no concerns other than it won’t get here fast enough. I’m already ramping up my fall inspiration on Tumblr and just got my first pair of “it’s gonna be cold” boots last week. …But I did say almost. With the rise of crop tops last year and the fact that they finally caught my interest this year, am I supposed to just hide them deep in my closet until next summer, shamed and shunned by the cold months? This is something I definitely did not think through before acquiring two that I absolutely love and want…

    Dressed
    18 Sep 2014 | 1:12 pm
    The Moschino spring 2015 just came down the runway in Milan and let me tell you—it was all about Barbie (she's having a mega moment right now!). Models had seriously voluminous wigs (platinum blond if it worked) and the entire first half of the show was all bubblegum pink. There were all kinds of retro references, too, from the chain belts to the prim skirt suits, and, of course, plenty of whacky moments. Some of my favorites? The roller-skating model who did a little spin at the end of the catwalk and a white terry cloth dress that made the model look like she'd just stepped out of the…

Feeling like Ed Helms in The Hangover, I peel myself off the floor and walk out the door to sunshine and commotion, in search of the closest bowl of restorative congee and cup of coffee (Roy Choi’s green onion-topped porridge at the Line Hotel’s Pot Café does the trick). I’m not missing any teeth, but still, it’s clear: An all-nighter in Koreatown isn’t for amateurs. In all fairness to one of…

  • 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…
  • Hush Puppies Chaste Ballet Review

    Kirsten Borrink
    25 Aug 2014 | 8:55 pm
    Hush Puppies Chaste Ballet from FootSmart.com I call these my Drops of Jupiter shoes. The dazzly raindrop-size studs remind me of the song title by Train. The problem is, I play the song in my head long after I take them off. Weird. I’m not normally a huge fan of ballet flats because they are just that–FLAT. But even the Barking Dog tires of over-structured, built-up, clunky comfort shoes. As you can see from the above photo, the Hush Puppies Chaste Ballet hugs the foot with its elasticized topline. The suede upper is super soft and skims right over bunions and hammertoes. You…

    OK, so last week – this ACTUALLY happened.Alex was working on his math homework and had finally finished it. He placed it on our kitchen table and just went about his afternoon.Henry was starving and wanted to have a snack. Potato chips, cookies, crackers just weren’t cutting it. He wanted something hearty, so I heated up some meatballs from last night’s dinner for him. I *guess* one of the meatballs missed his mouth because the next thing I knew I heard Henry say, “Mom! Look!” His meatball landed on Alex’s homework. I’m not kidding, there was sauce…

    Everyone knows fall is sweater weather, but let's not forget about scarves. Who doesn't love a cozy scarf with a leather moto jacket or a chunky cardigan? But before you reach for that bright, lightweight scarf you've been wearing all summer, don't even think about it. Fall scarves are a whole different ball game, so yes you need at least two or three new ones. Our recommendations?

Like, old school '80s Barbie: glitter, ruffles, oversized bows and lots and lots of PINK. Remember, this is the man who turned McDonald's into high fashion last season. Nothing is too wild or crazy for him. The show began with "Hiya, Barbie" blasting from the speakers, and the models took the runway as the classic doll we know and love. There was Beach Barbie!

If you didn't catch a glimpse of any of the Fall 2014 runway shows back in February, then these outfit ideas wouldn't even cross your mind this month.

  • How To Wash Your Silk Tops At Home

    19 Sep 2014 | 6:12 am
    Fall means spending more on your dry cleaning bill, amirite? Between wool sweaters that can't be machine washed to the silk tops that read "dry clean only," it seems like everything you wear in fall costs money to clean. It gets expensive fast! In an effort to save some dollars where we can, we found a way to hand-wash silk tops so you'll *rarely* have to send them out. (It might be a good idea to get them professionally cleaned once a season just so they'll last longer.) Here's everything you need to know about doing it: Ignore the labels. The labels on most silk blouses and tops read "dry…

    Gloria - University of Michigan
    19 Sep 2014 | 9:00 am
    Until recently, my necklace collection was comprised solely of large, chunky, statement pieces; I didn’t have anything cute, small, and charming. However, all that changed when I spotted a collection of corked glass vials while shopping for craft supplies. My mental Pinterest board wandered to the boho-chic Etsy section, and I realized I could take those vials and make them into pendants. While I created a pendant necklace, this same tutorial can be applied to other pieces of jewelry as well. In fact, I’m planning on making a matching pair of earrings in the near future! Read on…

    Photo Credit: Screenshot Taylor Swift is back on the scene with brand new music, and this time she’s… completely pop?! “Shake It Off” is the first single from T-Swift’s upcoming studio album “1989.” Not only is the album coming out this fall (October 27th, to be exact), but it will also be her “first documented, official pop album.” The single is light, upbeat, carries a great message, and it’s hard to resist shaking along to the beat! In the music video, Taylor is endearingly awkward as she tries to move along with professional…

The video is incredibly upsetting for many reasons. First, we’re witnessing domestic abuse, which is terrible and inexcusable. Second, after the viewing the tape, the NFL decided to only suspend Rice for a few games. He punched a woman in the face and was given a less harsh punishment than players caught with marijuana.

As well as all of those things, this September also happens to be the release date of the ‘Protecting Your Future’ Awareness campaign, a campaign by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme which aims to protect us should anything unexpected…

    Maria Pierides
    18 Sep 2014 | 4:38 am
    Finding one outfit to wear for an entire day is easier said than done – especially if you’re a busy yet fashion conscious lady. Is it possible to find an outfit to wear to the office and the cocktail bar without so much as a change of shoes? Is it feasible to wear one dress for an important breakfast meeting, afternoon tea with the girls and then straight to a fancy dinner with the boyfriend in the evening? Of course it is – and we’re going to prove it to you! The key to nailing the AM to PM look without having to carry a spare pair of heels in your bag or fumbling around in a small…

    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.

    Sophie Wood
    6 Sep 2014 | 4:14 pm
    As I get older, I find myself gravitating more & more towards comfortable block heels.  They are practical while offering both the height and chic style.  These Gold Strap Block Heels add just the right amount of shine to any outfit.  Pair it with ankle pants, midi skirts or with skinny jeans on Casual Fridays. Tip:  Dorothy Perkins shoe sizes tend to run large from my personal experience.  Consider ordering a size down.

  • Add attitude to their wardrobes with moto boots for girls

    Courtney Strimel
    18 Sep 2014 | 10:00 pm
    Dainty ballet flats have their place in a little girl’s wardrobe, but serious everyday play calls for a shoe choice with a little more durability and attitude. With the moto trend returning for fall 2014, moto boots for girls are a brilliant choice for cool autumn and cold winter days. In classic, basic black or a fun color, this rough-and-tumble style is actually very versatile. Of course they will look great with jeans and sweaters, but moto boots also look sweetly tough with leggings or skirts and tights. Whether she needs a style for wet, rainy weather or a lighter style for warmer…

    There’s nothing more enjoyable on fall’s first chilly days than wrapping up in soft layers and chunky sweaters. Autumn 2014 is elevating this cozy look into an art form, and there’s no better way to show off both than with zipper-hem sweaters. Available in literally every price range, this more-rugged take on the novelty sweater looks great when paired with leggings or jeans for casual days. And, as the RD Style sweater demonstrates below, the same zipper-hem sweaters actually look very downtown cool when paired with dressier skirts or trousers. Another plus is that you…

  • 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…

    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.

  • We Need to Make It Easier (and Safer) to Talk About Suicide

    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…

Needless to say, that’s why you haven’t seen any real ‘outfit’ posts. Why I’ve been kind of absent on social media. Right now, I’m laid up in bed, trying to crank out my posts, and well, trying not to do too much. The thing is, life goes on, no matter how I’m feeling.

    As we tell our stories across our various social networks, the words we have traditionally relied upon are continuing to be supplanted by video and images. In fact, this year alone will see more photos taken than ever before, according to Adobe's VP of Digital Imaging Products, Winston Hendrickson. He notes that this shift in form our personal storytelling takes - combined with how Mobile, the Cloud and desktop computing have been converging - is creating changes in our creative expression that are nothing short of seismic.

    (Fortuny gown; Madame Grès with one of her designs in 1946; Alexander Wang Spring 2015) Fortuny was born Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo in 1871 to a pair of well-known Spanish painters in Grenada. Although he inherited the painting gene, Fortuny proved passionate about textiles, which he collected and dyed for amusement. As a kid. As an adult, he became known for his silk Greek-goddess'y gowns which utilized glass beads to hold their shape and flow flatteringly on the female form. They are ardently collected by fashionistas and museums alike as art. (His work was said to have inspired Marcel…

    The year was 1848. Revolutions were sweeping across continental Europe. In Britain, the country was unsettled by the growing call of reform, not only socially, but also in the art world. Seven young London artists including William Holman Hunt, John Everett Millais and Dante Gabriel Rossetti banded together to form a secret society, the "Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood." The P.R.B. was inspired by art of the late medieval and early Renaissance period prior to Raphael, and was characterized by the use of bright colors, incredible detail and "noble" or religious subject matter. In short, it was…

In the one case, the sleeves will remain tucked up for hours without being touched; in the other, they become loose every five minutes. - The Art of Travel: or, Shifts and Contrivances Available in Wild Countries by Francis Galton, 1855, p. 134 It was obviously hard work being a Victorian era E-X-P-L-O-R-E-R.

    Flared trousers and jeans like bootcuts and wider flares made a comeback this year. And judging by what I see coming down the runwaysfor Spring 2015, they’ll gain momentum next year. I bet this makes Team Bootcuts very happy.  I’ve put together three looks, each with a pair of bootcut bottoms, a wrap front blouse, a topper, and booties. The rendition on the left is business casual, while the others are smart casual.

  • Taller Ankle Booties with Boyfriend Jeans

    Wearing booties with boyfriend jeans and relaxed skinnies is a great look for Spring, Autumn, and a mild Winter. Rolling the hems to give the outfit structure and interest is part of the boyfriend jeans charm, but it also shortens the inseam. If you wear shorter booties with boyfriend jeans, you’ll showcase lower leg skin between the hem of the jeans and the tops of the booties. This is one way to wear the combination, but it’s not the only way.  I’ve found that I prefer to wear booties that are slightly taller in the shaft with boyfriend jeans, as you can see here. That way I can…
  • Weekly Roundup: Current Cardigans

    Angie
    17 Sep 2014 | 1:08 pm
    Cardigans are still very popular with my clients because they are softer, less dressy and structured, and more cozy than jackets. They are also a great item to wear at home, especially when you work from home. Layer them over a tee, shirt, blouse or thinner pullover. Or over a dress.  Retail saturated the market with the classic, round neck, cropped cardigan, and I think we’re still bearing the brunt of the absolute overkill of that style. Plus, you have to be careful with the frump factor and that specific style of cardi because it can veer into dowdy territory before you know it.

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.

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,…

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…

Charges against him were recently dropped, but he described to SPIEGEL what it was like to be a cog in the Nazis’ horrific machinery of death. Jakob W. was 19-years-old and in his third semester studying architecture at college when he received the letter that would, seven decades later, turn him into a suspect for complicity in murder. In the summer of 1942, the young man from a village near Belgrade received his draft notice. Just a few months later, he was standing on a tower hundreds of…

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…

  • 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. Here are more of my picks for fringe…

    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…

    Radical Skincare is a new skin care line that is a game changer in my book in the world of anti-aging skin care. I've been using their Skin Perfecting Screen SPF30 (review here) and their Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum for a couple months now and can see such a difference in my skin. If anyone is 30 and over, you have to try Radical Skincare. Radical Skincare was founded by sisters Liz and Rachel Edlich. Their father was a plastic surgeon who specialized in treating burn patients. I had a chance to meet Rachel Edlich a couple of weeks ago at Saks in San Francisco where they will now carry…

After years of sky high stilettos making waves, it's nice to come back to ground. As NY Fashion Week is underway, I'm seeing more sneakers pop up on the runway such as DKNY above. Wear them with anything but they look especially hip dressed up with skirts, dresses and blazer/jeans.

  • Top 5 Men’s Cowboy Boots for Fall

    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.

And right along with all those famous dances, we’re certain that Texas offers up the best boots for dancing, the best music to dance to, and some of the best dance halls for dancing in, too.

  • And Just Like That Sarah Jessica Parker Brings Back The Fanny Pack

    19 Sep 2014 | 10:01 am
    It's like Sarah Jessica Parker carries around this little card in her wallet that announces the bearer can officially do no fashion wrong. We so closely associate her with madcap, uber-trendy Carrie Bradshaw that she could wear, like, a shoebox on her head and we'd all just sigh and think how much we love her. Her latest look wasn't that crazy, but it was definitely something I haven't seen on the red carpet in a while: the fanny pack. For a New York City event, she accessorized a formal, full-skirted black dress with an actual fanny pack, though she avoided a hefty, ready-to-hike style with…
  • Say Goodbye to Back Fat With This Nifty Bra Fitting Tip

    19 Sep 2014 | 9:01 am
    Lesson learned: If you say the words "back fat" in a room of mostly women, ears will perk up and you'll get all kinds of interested parties wanting to chat. It's a fit issue that can happen to anyone, no matter the size, and it's not always a sign that your bra is too small. I just talked to Michelle Lam, CEO and founder of fit-focused online bra shop True & Co., to talk bras and the biggest eureka moment of our convo centered on, well, you guessed it... "A bra should rest comfortably against the back and sides of a woman's torso, whatever size or shape she is. 'Back fat' may be a symptom of…

According to InTouch, an unnamed source shed light on some nasty backstage behavior at fashion week. "The other models worked so hard to get a spot on the runway and didn't think it was fair that she was there. Some put out their cigarettes in Kendall's drinks! They thought she was getting special treatment and just weren't okay with it." I mean, yikes!

But don't fall into that, yoga pants and a beat up t-shirt rut. How does a 5-minute outfit idea that will keep you looking pull together, sans Monday to Friday effort sound to you? Yep, it sounds pretty awesome to us, too. So let's take some inspiration from Lauren Conrad and her polished on-a-mission outfit.

  • Can You Spot All the Barbie References In the Moschino Spring 2015 Show?

    18 Sep 2014 | 1:12 pm
    The Moschino spring 2015 just came down the runway in Milan and let me tell you—it was all about Barbie (she's having a mega moment right now!). Models had seriously voluminous wigs (platinum blond if it worked) and the entire first half of the show was all bubblegum pink. There were all kinds of retro references, too, from the chain belts to the prim skirt suits, and, of course, plenty of whacky moments. Some of my favorites? The roller-skating model who did a little spin at the end of the catwalk and a white terry cloth dress that made the model look like she'd just stepped out of the…

    Approaching autumn & winter, I have almost no concerns other than it won’t get here fast enough. I’m already ramping up my fall inspiration on Tumblr and just got my first pair of “it’s gonna be cold” boots last week. …But I did say almost. With the rise of crop tops last year and the fact that they finally caught my interest this year, am I supposed to just hide them deep in my closet until next summer, shamed and shunned by the cold months?

It’s an important playlist to have, obviously, but I have a problem with names that resemble Fiona Apple’s album titles, so I just went with “Sink.” Now, this is not a fall/winter playlist. This is specifically intended for days when the conditions outside are perfect – extremely cold, or maybe just grey and dreary but muggy thanks to El Niño…

Yes, I am enabling you. If you’re new to the idea of wearing a midi ring, or it’s just starting to become something you could see yourself wearing (new trends are scary), this is an excellent starter. It’s pretty unassuming – just a little plus sign amidst a band of sterling silver. I’m not sure why it’s less than $10 right now, but I’m…

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — There are about as many ideas about how to save Atlantic City as there are residents of Atlantic City (39,551). I don't say that hyperbolically. When I was there this past weekend every single person I talked to knew exactly what was wrong with it and how to fix it: it's either Trump's fault, or the lack of Trump, or because too many casinos opened, or because the casinos aren't fancy enough—many don't offer luxury massages and club experiences like in Las Vegas. Or it's because the city's inherently gritty casinos tried to be fancy and that obviously was a bad idea.

    When I got my teeth straightened a couple of years ago, my whole perspective changed. It felt like a whole new world opened up to me, one I didn’t even realise I had been subconsciously preventing myself from exploring. I stopped covering my mouth with my hand when I smiled or laughed, I started grinning in photographs, and I started to experiment with lipstick and lip stains. Before that, I was strictly a lip balm girl. I guess I didn’t want to draw any more attention to my mouth than I had to. It’s interesting: when I had my teeth straightened (Invisalign, holler!), I had…

I’ve been asked for a physical copy of Love & Sequins for years, but it never felt like the right time. Well, to quote The Craft: now is the time, this is the hour, ours is the magic, ours is…

  • Meet Bill

    3 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    This isn't Mayor Bill de Blasio's first New York fashion week in office, but we'll let last season's lack of participation slip. The man had only been sworn in just a few weeks prior. Now, eight months into his tenure, the mayor has had a bit more time to strategize a vision, enlist allies, and execute a plan—and it's an ambitious one. Last night, fashion's heavy hitters were summoned to Yorkville for a cocktail party at Gracie Mansion officially kicking off the week's festivities and announcing three new initiatives out of City Hall: a NYC Capsule Collection to help local designers…
  • Reunited and It Feels So Good

    3 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    "It's like we're all waking up from our summer vacations," said Ryan McNamara. "We're back from New Mexico, we're back from the Hamptons, and we all look cute and tan—they really make us hit the ground running!" Style.com spotted the performance artist at the closing night festivities for Rachel Feinstein's Madison Square Park sculpture exhibition Folly, one of the first events in what is sure to be a party-crazed NYFW. ("Shit won't look good by the end of the week," McNamara joked.) The bash, held at the cavernous NeueHouse, included a rather epic performance Feinstein created for the…
  • And So It Begins�

    3 Sep 2014 | 9:00 pm
    New York fashion week officially starts today. However, last night, in order to ease the international style set's transition from the beaches of the Hamptons and Ibiza to the front row, Style.com decided to throw a low-key fete. OK, not that low-key—we were also celebrating the forthcoming relaunch of our website. But thanks in part to the magical setting—a secluded Nolita garden that had been unforgettably transformed into a sylvan wonderland by the Absolut Elyx event team—the party seemed the perfect, laid-back way to kick off a month of runway shows. "I'm sitting here…

    It was fashion central at Cherche Midi last night, where Trademark's Pookie and Louisa Burch were celebrating their first-ever store with a post-opening dinner for 100. In one corner Ashley Olsen, in another Olivier Theyskens, and sprinkled among the tables at Keith McNally's new hot spot, other members of the Burch clan, including papa Christopher, former stepmom Tory, and sister Izzie. Burch père interrupted dinner to make a speech: "I'm fortunate enough to be Pookie and Louisa's partner, and I mean that like this [makes finger quotes], which means, 'Dad, we grew up with you and Mom,…

    Photo Credit: Fortune/Starbucks According to one report, Corporate America is becoming more lax when it comes to their employees sporting tattoos. In a report published by Fortune magazine, heads of corporations such as Starbucks, Wal-Mart and PetSmart are beginning to consider a more casual dress code. Coffee giant Starbucks is coming to terms with the reality that most of America, customers and employees included, is either tatted, pierced or both. PetSmart has taken a step forward by allowing its employees to show off their tattoos. Though Wal-Mart hasn’t fully embraced body art, it will…

It is even more difficult with the decline of traditional Black newspapers and magazines, where we would often be celebrated. Oftentimes we have to turn to photos of people in our own family to validate our sense of selves. Author Nichelle Gainer, creator of Vintage Black Glamour, which first started as popular…

    Justin Long was all smiles while at the Tusk premiere in Los Angeles, California. The actor kept it simple with a denim jacket by Big Star. It’s great to see a more medium washed denim jacket out. We usually see lighter washes, but as the Fall season starts to kick in I think a darker one is a great alternative. Instead of taking a look to a more casual route, it somehow smartens it a bit. How many of you men are opting for a darker denim jacket this season?

    My denim review this week is on the American Eagle Sky High Jegging in Light Destroy. It makes a nice change to be able to review something non premium and see the differences! We just recently saw these on Jamie Chung too! So check out my review below. The Sky High Jegging has an 11″ front rise, so it really is high, reaching my belly button almost. It’s high at the back too with a 15″ rise, but they kept the pockets in the same place as they usually do so they are still flattering on the butt. I hate it when high rise jeans have pockets that are placed high up to…

    The lovely Stacy Keibler was photographed a couple of days ago wearing 7 For All Mankind’s Josefina Feminine jeans in authentic medium blue, while heading to lunch in Los Angeles. I think Stacy did a great job dressing these up actually. The pairing of the casual jeans with a silk style shirt and tweed blazer really gives it a smarter feel. I feel like the shoes might be too much of a harsh injection of black at the feet, but they do match her bag. Buy 7 For All Mankind online at Shopbop.com.

    Cara Delevingne was spotted leaving her hotel in London. The model wore a pair of Citizens of Humanity Rocket jeans in London Calling with her signature high-top sneakers and a leather jacket. This pair here is definitely not a pair that you can file under the “Banal Grey” section. There is such great depth to them in the wash alone and the distressing elevates it to a style that stands out against the other greys this season. As these are in the Rocket cut, they will suit everyone too. Click here to purchase these jeans from SHOPBOP for $258. Image Courtesy of WENN.com

But I like that they look a bit different on Maria and have a looser fit, and the ripped holes are not as exaggerated. Buy J Brand online from Revolveclothing.com.

    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…

In September, Louis Vuitton store windows will feature Gehry’s sculptures alongside its Fall/Winter 2014 collection. Strongly inspired by stylish schooners of the past, the sculptures are made from wooden structures covered in metal. “They are like sails filled by a following wind.

With over 150 years of history, Louis Vuitton trunks are the secular emblems of the House, synonymous with travel, adventure, exploration, secrets, and treasures. For his very first women’s collection, Nicolas Ghesquière specifically designed miniature trunks to wear as a minaudière bag and as a refined 18 carat yellow gold pendant, as seen here.

This line of daytime and evening shoes is vamped with zips that rock each model to modernize any silhouette. Brogues, loafers and ankle boots are made from calf or waxed calf leather. Sandals and low boots are crafted with python and suede goat leather that flatter the arch of the foot. In a skillful trompe-l’œil, a play on perspective, pairs of shoes have stomped through the emblematic public squares in Paris –…

    It might be 100 degrees in San Diego, but happily ensconced in Seattle for the week (where the days are warm but the mornings are cool and crisp), it's a bit easier to dream of fall.

    I have a love-hate relationship with Kim Kardashian’s style. I love that she embrace her curves, but I wish she would just cover up and take a break from all the booty and cleavage. That’s why I love this casual look on Kim Kardashian! It’s still sexy but in a sweatpants chic kind of way that isn’t showing too much of anything. An easy breezy outfit anyone can wear and if you don’t want to wear heels you can simply add some flats.

  • Review: Guilty Soles Shoe Membership Without A Monthly Commitment

    admin
    4 Sep 2014 | 1:57 pm
    I like every other shoe obsessed girl have been tempted to try all of those monthly shoe clubs but I’ve never actually gone through with it. One of the main reasons why I’ve never actually gone through with it was because I didn’t want the monthly commitment of buying a pair of shoes without seeing the actually quality. I’m known to like a bargain and have no problem buying affordable shoes but to pay and join a monthly shoe club  scares me because it’s a year long commitment. So, when Guilty Soles offered me the chance to try out their shoe membership that DID…

Running the house, business, community, and raising a family. Sometimes with help and sometimes on their own, but one thing I know is that I have been quite fortunate to be surrounded by who constantly challenge the status quo, break barriers, and who do the damned thing.

    While you might think that your rowdy tweens and rebellious teens are giving you premature wrinkles, there are actually a few surprising causes for early aging in the face. Everyone wants to keep a youthful appearance for as long as possible, but the demands of daily life, along with poor personal habits, may cause premature wrinkles. The following list explains causes of accelerated skin aging and how to slow it down. Dehydration Most people do not drink enough water, and lack of proper hydration causes the skin to become dry and less able to renew itself. Drier skin wrinkles and sags more…

    For those that are extremely careful about the appearance of their smile, it can be heartbreaking when minor and major blemishes begin to develop. From mild discoloration to severe malocclusion, these aesthetic issues may seem overwhelming, but there are now more effective cosmetic treatment options than ever to reinvent a smile quickly and painlessly. Crowns and Bridges Teeth are exceptionally resilient, but wear-and-tear as well as trauma to the face can cause some major cosmetic and medical issues.

  • Fancy Summer Fashion: How to Dress Up for Work & Special Occasions during Summer

    Dixie Summers
    4 Aug 2014 | 1:39 pm
    When you’re dressing up for work and special occasions during the summer, it’s tough to find something that is appropriate, but doesn’t weigh you down with layers. Thick button-downs and chunky blazers are too hot for summer, but you can’t just wear a tunic over your swimsuit everywhere you go. Yes, summer wear is typically more casual, but you can still dress up a bit when you head to the office, a night out with friends, or a wedding. You’ll save money on your summer wardrobe when you buy outfits that are suitable for the office, but can be dressed up for evening wear.

    From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler was a defining book of my childhood. 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…

  • Fall Refresh with Sassoon Salons

    eye4style
    25 Aug 2014 | 6:09 am
    If there's one thing that I've learned about myself in the past few years, it's that I'm ill-suited to dramatic hair changes. Ombre? A bob? Bronde (that's brown-blonde) highlights? All left me feeling, not to be dramatic, but nothing short of despair. So, when my friends at Style Coalition invited me to visit Sassoon Salon last week, I knew that the hair gods had intervened. Sassoon comes with a reputation, you see - and one of the very best kind. Founded by the legendary Vidal Sassoon, hair master credited with the invention of, oh you know, the bob, the legacy lives on with a meticulously…

    If only I had decent eyebrows. Because bold brows are still making an impact this season. While bold can sometimes come across as hard, makeup artist Diane Kendal went for a slightly more arched look for Carolina Herrera, making them more feminine. Paired with pinkish-purple stained lips (which Kendal created by swiping on M.A.C. Lipstick in Boysenberry and blotting it away), it can be quite sophisticated. Another definite do this fall are eyes done up in gray/brown colors for an easy daytime smoky eye.  Photo from Allure

    Fall is in the hair. Can you feel it? Speaking of, fall is all about low maintenance. Thank goodness. From loose, textured waves and perfectly centered parts to a plethora of pony tails, twists and braids, and 60s inspired styles. I especially love these looks by Burberry Prorsum, Fendi and Diane von Furstenberg. I do believe bed head and 3rd day hair will be right on trend. Photos from Harper's BAZAAR

    Downsizing can be good. Especially if it involves stellar pieces of jewelry. Enter: J.Crew. I cannot say enough about this Wishbone Cuff in Russian gold plating. First and foremost, it fits my tiny wrist! Typically, open-ended cuffs do not work for my wrist. They tend to fall right off. However, this is styled so perfectly for small wrists. I might just have to buy a second one for when I wear this one out. With minimal jewelry hitting the scene this season, finding the perfect mix is essential. Between this cuff, the hinged choker (I wear it backwards) and the ID ring, I am set from…

Starting with color, we will continue to see pink, in clothing and accessories, such as handbags. Red, specifically oxblood, is at the forefront. Blues, greens and earth tones share the scene. And the infamous black and white duo are still going strong. The vibe of the season is two-toned — relaxed sophistication. Prints take a backseat to solids. Among the typical fabrics…

  • 4 Ways to Rock 'Conservative' Metallic

    Stephanie Rahlfs
    16 Sep 2014 | 7:33 am
    --By Kim Moshtaghi Metallic inspired fashion is everywhere. Designers are taking everything from denim to leather and electrifying those materials with metallic. And these designers have proven that anyone can embrace and enjoy the sometimes-flamboyant shiny look. Metallic enhances any look and adds glitz to your personality, but remember to carefully pair because any shiny trend can look tacky and cheap. Keep things in context and always consider the occasion you are attending to ensure you dress appropriately. In this article, I intend to showcase the lighter and more conservative side of…

    Are you a fan of Reiss? If so, you are in good company around here. Not sure? If the label sounds just vaguely familiar, you probably ran across it a couple times in the photo credits for Kate Middleton. She’s been snapped sporting Reiss both before and after becoming an official Royal. Beyond the Royal connection, the London-based label is known for creating design-focused pieces that tend toward architectural simplicity. Although I’ve spotted some particularly hideous ruffly creations on the Reiss site from time to time, I generally find that they offer a range of very wearable pieces…

    2 Sep 2014 | 7:32 am
    I have this new theory about Labor Day shopping. I think the sites that are planning sales purposefully hold back the fall goodies. I couldn’t find a thing to love all weekend. Luckily, the luxe sites and designer sections – you know, the ones that don’t have sales – don’t seem to have this problem. So, I went fantasy shoe shopping over the long weekend. I’m hoping that the stars align and I get to snag at least one of these pairs for the upcoming season. But, if not, at least I have the dream…It was after falling head over heels for these flats that I noticed a Rupert Sanderson…

    19 Sep 2014 | 2:07 pm
    Afghan rug designs have remained largely unchanged since the 19th century, yet years of war and isolation have left Afghans utterly lacking the facilities to produce them - not to mention totally out of touch with changing market trends. AfghanMade Carpets was set up in 2006 by the American Task Force for Business Stability Operations to help develop the country's indigenous industries and is slowly bringing the country up to speed with contemporary production techniques. This year representatives from AfghanMade Carpets flew over with a portfolio of contemporary designs and a delegation…

    Roy McMakin has been making seemingly ordinary furniture since 1987. In all that time, the Seattle-based artist/designer has consistently tinkered with familiar furniture archetypes - like sofas and chests of drawers - and turned them into something more. This week, a thought-provoking collection of domestic furniture takes centre stage at Austin's Lora Reynolds Gallery for a new exhibition. Throughout the course of his career, McMakin has delved into photography, drawing, sculpture, interiors and architecture, and this multidisciplinary approach is the defining principle behind his…

    While I absolutely loved my bob which turned into a lob (long bob), today I went in for a mid-length cut. Hitting anywhere between your clavicle and a smidgen above your chest, mid-length is the perfect compromise for a girl who feels sexy with some length but enjoys the liberation of a shorter low-maintenance do. Prior to my haircut, I spent time researching mid-length references and found inspiration in everyone from Kate Moss to Emma Stone and Olivia Palermo.

We met lots of characters, rode the best rides, and a few little girls even came up to me and thought I was a princess. I picked this dress out for this trip and only realized a few days before that it resembles Rapunzels quite a bit. 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…

If our world was a happy (miserable for me) vegan world where animals were only raised as loving companions and we would not kill a single soul around the planet, we won't be fishing or hunting either but only grow delicious veggies and we would not cut a single tree to protect wild life's habitat, then of course fur would…

  • Jeff Staple made a ‘Pigeon’ Clarks Wallabee … and all of our dreams come true.

    Jack Smylie
    19 Sep 2014 | 8:06 am
    Two of our favourite things in the world are burgers and Clarks Wallabees, which means that Jeff Staple has basically nailed it in the last couple of weeks – having first collaborated with Shake Shack, and now the iconic footwear brand. The collaboration is rooted in Clarks’ heritage, but adds new materials in an effort to innovate. The Wallabee comes in Staple‘s signature Pigeon colorway, with grey leather accompanied by bright red accents – and the latter color is also used to spruce up the Wallabee’s iconic crepe sole. With the addition of Staple’s…
  • Get ready for the weekend with this f*cking ridiculous PRMTVO FW14 ‘Banarchy!’ Teaser.

    Jack Smylie
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:49 am
    Los Angeles-based concept brand PRMTVO has revealed this small and confusing ‘teaser’ film for its FW14 Banarchy! collection. It’s very short and leaves us with a lot more questions than we had before we watched it — which is sort of the point, we guess. Referencing Stanley Kubrick’s filmic masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey, you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for more from PRMTVO in the very near future. Visit their website for more (or less) information. RELATED: THE LO-FI STORE IN PERTH, AUSTRALIA HAS EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER WANT (EXCEPT DRUGS) The…
  • Polar X Converse is the only sanity left in this crazy world.

    Jack Smylie
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:43 am
    Exciting news this week, as we finally see the results from one of the more compelling skate collabs in recent times. Converse CONS has teamed up with Danish skate brand Polar to bring us a seven-piece collection of footwear and apparel this season. At the heart of the collection is the footwear — the  CONS ‘CTAS Pro’ is offered in both hi-top and ox silhouettes, with leather and suede options. Each sneaker is super-clean, reflecting the minimalism that the Scandinavians are known for, and adorned with happy/sad face graphics as a unique embellishment. Accompanying…
  • We like Goodhood. We like Norse Projects. And we really like the “No Good” Capsule Collection.

    Jack Smylie
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:19 am
    Goodhood and Norse Projects have enjoyed a strong relationship over the years — the London-based retailer introduced the Copenhagen brand to the UK (and to Europe, for that matter). So it’s of no surprise that the pair have finally come together to release a collection of goods with both parties’ interests at heart. Continuing with the black-and-white polkadot theme that Goodhood has been applying to its recent collaborations, we find a selection of sweats, tees, patchwork shirts, pants, and a fedora hat – kept simple other than a tongue-in-cheek “No Good” motif…

    LA’s menswear wunderkind AXS Folk Technology delivers another conceptual take on outdoors culture with its latest collection. Taking familiar pieces like anoraks, hiking pants and popover shirts, the brand twists them into a new, contemporary realm – something which is at the heart of the Fall collection, but also looks like a pattern for the brand. AXS also doesn’t shy away from clashing tones or dialling up the styling — refreshingly progressive, yet wearable. Find more on the brand’s website.

  • Why I Cheat On Veganism

    Caroline Goldstein
    19 Sep 2014 | 5:40 am
    Illustrated by Sydney Hass.I’ve never been a “diet person.” I’ve never considered myself much of a “[fill-in-the-blank] person” at all; my high school yearbook quote, from my (hardcore punk) idol, Henry Rollins, read as follows: “I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention.” Even though that teenage angst has (mostly) abated, I still like to think I define myself not by subscribing to a certain label or way of life, but with a more mix-and-match, DIY approach. Imagine my surprise, then, when I realized I was gradually, but definitely, becoming a vegan. Before I knew…

    Let's get personal. This editor is a certified Barbie girl boy, with a childhood collection at home and a plastic doll currently residing on his desk to prove it. And, apparently so is Jeremy Scott. The quirky designer (and Miley's BFF) sent a Barbie-themed line down the runway yesterday for his spring/summer '15 Moschino show, which showcased pink, well, everything. And, in true Scott form (you may remember last season's sold-out-immediately fast-food line or his namesake label's recent Shrek collab), he's making this Barbie dream a reality, offering some of the runway pieces for purchase…
  • Prada To Your Tailor: Don't Worry, We Got This

    Most of us don’t have the tools or the know-how to whip up a brand-new outfit from bolts of cloth and thread, but we do know how to use the contents of our closets to tell a story. And, if a piece isn't sticking to the script, we'll send it to the tailor to get doctored. Boot-cut pants get skinnified, long-length tunics get hemmed, and a midi-skirt that’s starting to feel frowsy gets trimmed to a mini. Or, if you’re Miuccia Prada, you could just take a pair of scissors to your stuff and call it a day. Featuring skirts with torn, rough-looking bottoms where every seam and stitch was…

In a similarly cosmic aligning, Star Trek's Chris Pine is reportedly dating X-Men and Divergent star Zoë Kravitz. It's actually more of a reunion. The two were rumored to be a couple in 2010, when, as the Daily Mail put it, "[T]he Jack Ryan actor cozied up to the bohemian beauty at the Met Gala in Manhattan." The two eventually drifted apart, and their other dalliances made headlines. Kravitz dated Michael Fassbender and Penn Badgley, while Pine romanced Olivia Munn and Íris Björk Jóhannesdóttir,…

  • Lorenz Knitting Mills Vintage Black Wool Swimsuit from 1930

    3 Sep 2014 | 7:17 am
    Vintage wool bathing suits from the 1920s and 30s are becoming increasingly difficult to come by as time marches on. The effects of time, sunlight, age, and little critters can make a disaster out of wool in no time. That's why it's such a pleasure when I find early pieces with provenance to help support identification and attributes. Case in point, this wonderful Lorenz Knitting Mills men's bathing suit from 1930. Sorry, I don't own a male mannequin as of yet so this wool swimsuit is being modeled on my female mannequin. But what I want to share with you is the piece, the label and the…

  • Vintage 1929 Beach Pajamas

    Monday we took a look at Jean Patou and his ideas about beach pajamas. In a continuum of the beach pajama theme today we look at more 1930s beach pajama fashions. I just adore the carefree casualness of these sets. So comfortable yet stylish and cool for the ocean breeze.These are both vintage advertisements from 1929. Remember those days of wide trousers and low cinched back or front, me neither. And wool jersey? I like the wide leg look myself, the sailor collars and the draping. Oh, and those wide brimmed hats, oh lordy be! Stay tuned for more of our beach pajama party this week as we…

Today we begin with an article by Jean Patou in which he describes the 'modern day' woman and what ensemble is best for the beach. The Miami News, Jun 8, 1929. By Jean Patou.

    1 Mar 2014 | 2:07 pm
      From the minute we stepped through the front doors of the Berkeley City Club last Wednesday, I was in love, transported back to the early 20th century, my favorite era. A time when, from my humble point of view, the arts and architecture were at their apex. Those times were a cauldron of new and old, experimentation, a huge confluence of artists both in the States and in Europe drawing inspiration from history and from each other. The mind reels when thinking of the wealth of the arts in those days: the Ballet Russe, Leon Bakst, Isadora Duncan, Nijinski, Ruth St. Denis, Satie, Debussy,…

    I’m going to be honest: I’ve never really been a fan of New York & Company. Not that there’s anything wrong with the clothes that they sell, but until recently I always associated the brand with fairly basic and underwhelming work wear. As a child I used to love going to the mall with my mother, but when she would drag me to New York & Company I remember the shopping trip, which couldn’t have lasted more than an hour, seemed like an eternity. Recently though, after over a decade of misguided notions, I decided to give New York & Company another chance. I ventured on the…

    Two of our favourite things in the world are burgers and Clarks Wallabees, which means that Jeff Staple has basically nailed it in the last couple of weeks – having first collaborated with Shake Shack, and now the iconic footwear brand. The collaboration is rooted in Clarks’ heritage, but adds new materials in an effort to innovate. The Wallabee comes in Staple‘s signature Pigeon colorway, with grey leather accompanied by bright red accents – and the latter color is also used to spruce up the Wallabee’s iconic crepe sole.

It’s very short and leaves us with a lot more questions than we had before we watched it — which is sort of the point, we guess. Referencing Stanley Kubrick’s filmic masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey, you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for more from PRMTVO in the very near future.

At the heart of the collection is the footwear — the  CONS ‘CTAS Pro’ is offered in both hi-top and ox silhouettes, with leather and suede options. Each sneaker is super-clean, reflecting the minimalism that the Scandinavians are known for, and adorned with happy/sad face graphics as a unique embellishment. Accompanying…

So it’s of no surprise that the pair have finally come together to release a collection of goods with both parties’ interests at heart. Continuing with the black-and-white polkadot theme that Goodhood has been applying to its recent collaborations, we find a selection of sweats, tees, patchwork shirts, pants, and a fedora hat – kept simple other than a tongue-in-cheek “No Good” motif…

    When it comes to the manicures spotted backstage at New York Fashion Week, there are typically two distinct categories they can fall under: bold, eye-popping nail art and simple nudes.  And while the former has certainly reigned supreme these last few seasons, it’s rare that these two schools of nail design ever cross over.  That is, until this season. While making our rounds backstage at New York Fashion Week earlier this month, it became abundantly clear to us that next season’s best manicures are neither bold nor boring but rather, the perfect marriage of the two.   With…

Along those lines is the narrative that guys – we simpleminded guys – love sex so much that there’s no way we…

    With the constant stress of our fast paced lives, it can be difficult, if not impossible, to find a “happy place.” Meditation and chanting work for some, but for the rest of us, we have our car stereo & a pair of headphones. Below are 10 tracks that will mellow overwhelming days into a hot cup of tea, a bubbling brook, or the scent of a freshly cut lawn. Take a few of these and add them to the staples like, Jack Johnson and Bob Marley.

    16 Sep 2014 | 11:00 am
    Okay, we’ll just say it. We love us some new shiny things. When Elizabeth & James unveiled their sequined sweatshirt in 2010, we couldn’t stop envisioning how good it would look on us paired with a mini skirt. So much so that we scoured the internet for hours to find a less expensive version. When Miu Miu debuted their 2011 glitter pumps, we were there, and we imagined ourselves wearing those sexy, shiny shoes while we danced with Gene Kelly in the rain. The truth is, we’ll always write about shiny shit, whether it’s about getting shiny, shimmering skin, our favorite gold,…

    When choosing highlighting 80 % of women do not consider their individual skin tone. They usually see a hair color on a celebrity or on a friend, and give it a try and end up hating it. “The biggest rule of thumb is that your natural hair color is the shade range that you should stay within 2 shades of your natural hair color.

    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…

I popped over a couple of days ago to shoot, but the session only lasted 52 minutes. That was plenty enough time for me to realize how much I hated thae environment.

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.

While walking towards Spring (on Crosby) this weekend I spotted a stylish woman having what appeared to be a heated conversation. 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. She gave me the OK and we eventually…

    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…

  • We Can’t Stop Listening: Mz 007’s “Important”

    “PASS ME A DRINK, I’M IMPORTANT” Who doesn’t say this when entering a club? 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…

And with each season, street style during fashion week doesn’t disappoint. 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? Dudes in ultra-sleek suits with interesting patterns and ladies venturing into menswear with car coats, boyfriend trousers, and school boy t-shirts. From New York to Paris,…

    Never one to hide from a trend, Burberry Prorsum hopped on the normcore bandwagon for spring 2015. 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…
  • Runway: Tom Ford RTW S/S 2015

    16 Sep 2014 | 5:30 am
    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

    Until recently ‘ghost singing’ in movies was the best kept secret in Hollywood.  It might have been that the actor or actress simply couldn’t sing in tune, or that their voice just didn’t have the strength or range required, but one thing is for sure: dubbing was a widespread phenomenon. Actresses like Cyd Charisse, Joan Crawford and Rita Hayworth were all regularly dubbed in their movies. Here are 5 major songs from classic movies that you might be surprised to discover were ghost-sung. What’s particularly interesting is Audrey Hpeburn‘s orignal recording…

I came across this course which teaches you not only how to draw (using fabulously easy templates), but also gives you advice about the fashion industry, helps you assess your business idea and generally how to price and market your own fashion line. I’m wondering though: once you’ve designed your collection do you then produce it yourself or approach somebody else…

The day was only marred by my bad outfit choice: my feet really hurt due to impractical and untested shoes and I was wearing a dress which turned out to be far too low-cut so I spent the day feeling rather uncomfortable. Ooops! Above: a mini pop-up version of Brighton Pier complete with sand, deckchairs and a Punch & Judy show: throwing the baby down the stairs, being eaten by crocodiles and making sausages out of people.

    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…
  • Peggy Guggenheim Museum Café by Hangar Design

    11 Sep 2014 | 12:00 am
    Hangar Design Group’s redesign of the Peggy Guggenheim Museum Café in Venice emphasizes a deep sense of interconnectedness between the café and internal garden. 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. The layout was reorganized to improve the fluidity of the space that leads visitors from the temporary exhibits to the café. The…

    Concrete is a material celebrated as a culture status for how it responds to our tireless, “in your face” society. The understated aesthetic of Office 05’s concrete muted tones contribute to a meditative, naked experience. Office 05 for media agency MediaXplain by i29 interior architects, in de Houthavens, Amsterdam highlights raw concrete as a central subject. The interior includes unfinished, exposed concrete walls, rough oak wood, custom designed concrete carpets, and black walls and furniture.

    Don’t blame fashion designer, Narciso Rodriguez for his fabulousness of black and white understatement. I suspect Mr. Rodriguez, the son of Cuban immigrants and based in New York City, would be fine just paying tribute to a simple world in which everything is black and white. The Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2015 collection is predictably simple. Mr. Rodriguez offers clarity, inspired by disciplined and fuss-free classics. His unassuming clothes are lean and body conscious, subordinated to ruthless perfectionism. Curvilinear bustiers and stretchy, slim dresses with flirty, and…

    21 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    Artists might approach a white canvas with a blank stare in anticipation of a transformative experience. In a similar way, as we enter a space saturated in white, we withdraw ourselves metaphorically, to immerse in an abstract world sealed from distractions. Casa Una by Turin-based architect Giorgio Comoglio stimulates the dialogue between a modern container and an ancient structure. The renovated apartment, in Turin is executed solely in the much loved color white. It is conceived as a self contained space almost inseparable from its historic context. High wood-beamed ceilings…

Nothing is too wild or crazy for him. The show began with "Hiya, Barbie" blasting from the speakers, and the models took the runway as the classic doll we know and love. There was Beach Barbie! Office Barbie! Rollerblade Barbie! Even if you weren't able to see "the dream" live in person, you can just tell the room was…

Honestly, if you only purchase one pair of shoes in your lifetime, this should be it.The thing about black heels is that they go with practically every outfit possible. You can pair  them with an LBD (Little Black Dress) for some extra class, or even throw them on with some dark-washed jeans and a cute top for a daytime, non-fancy occasion.

The tinted balms add just the right amount of color, while moisturizing in an amazing way. I've yet to find other balms that work as well.Unfortunately, people are now using the tingly lip balm in a new way. They call it "Beezin". It’s when you apply a light layer of the balm over your eyelids. Apparently,…

So here's the additional inspiration for blue and white dresses.Blue and white modern qipao. Blue and white dress by Oscar de la Renta. Michelle Obama in Tanya Taylor blue and white dress.Duchess of Cambridge was wearing a Lasa Poppy Dress featuring graduated blue flowers at the waistline for her April 19 visit to the RAAF Base Amberley. A vintage blue and white dress. Cindy of Cindiddy and Anya Ziourova in blue and white dress. Blue and white dresses…

    There're a lot of mullet gowns out there. But, I think the original idea of making the mullet gown so elegant and different from the other came from Oscar de la Renta's. Most people make them seems like removable skirt so it doesn't like a whole gown. 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…

    After watched the Grace of Monaco movie, honestly I don't really like the story even I love Grace Kelly and Nicole Kidman much. One thing that I put attention on is the wardrobe. I think they put a lot of effort and (in my opinion) worth the next Oscar's or Cannes' for best wardrobe movie ever. They got the idea of timeless and elegant in every scene and every event, just like Grace Kelly was. Oh dear the Grace of Monaco wardrobe's stylist, you've got an A+ from me! ;) Above: the white V-Neckline ball gown with laces embellishments. Bottom: the signature style's of Grace Kelly, scarfs…

Usually it’s a pair of BLACK TROUSERS. You know, putting together outfits for work (if you’re into that) is much like going to the gym. You never do it, yet every day you promise yourself tomorrow’s…

So how can you get this hair, without doing the bed-hair-thing, but actually washing it fresh & styling it in less than 20 minutes? No hair teasing required. Easy peasy. I’ve used MeNKOI products for both hair care as well as styling, and I… am ecstatic for finally nailing the textured hair thing without dehydrating my hair (no dry shampoo, no teasing) and making it look 100 years old.

  • Four Fall Jackets: Entry Level + Upgrade

    Diane Vadino
    18 Sep 2014 | 5:00 am
    A new season approaches, and with it, that perennial decision: to skimp or splurge on outerwear. Sure, we can all get by in a $100 peacoat—but should we? Maybe not. Like they say: Dress for the job you want—and no article of clothing gets as much of a workout in the cooler months than outerwear. We picked four of our top shapes for the fall: the classic bomber, the parka, the motorcycle jacket, and the peacoat. Classics every one of them. Buy it once, have it forever—if you invest. But we know that this might not be the season for investing—this might, in fact, be the season for just…

  • 3 Tips for Building a Wardrobe You’ll Actually Wear

    Are there any clothes you just can’t wear? Well, “can’t” is the wrong word – obviously nothing’s preventing you from donning flat-front khakis, or a bow tie, or a high and tight hairstyle, for that matter. I’m talking about the items you put on – whether off the rack at the store or pulled from the back of your closet – and just think, “Nope, no. Uh uh. Get. It. Off. Me.” For me, it’s dress shirts. If it buttons up the front, I want no part of it. That’s not to say I don’t own button-front shirts. Quite the opposite, in fact. I’ve bought them time and…

    15 Sep 2014 | 8:35 am
    Just before all the madness of fashion week started I was invited by Debenhams to their Oxford Street store to style up one of the mannequins. Debenhams currently have such a fantastic display on the womenswear floors which showcase the colours for the season, including pastels, blues, red berries, greens and café crème which was the colour I had to style up. Café Crème is a mixture of nudes, naturals and browns. I knew this was going to be a bit of a challenge for me as I never normally wear anything nude or brown coloured. I went round the ladies floor and started filling my basket up…

  • Desenhando a tendência: neutros

    Roberta Graham
    19 Sep 2014 | 7:45 am
    Já falei aqui no blog sobre a tendência dos looks neutros que prometem sacodir o próximo verão (por próximo, quero dizer o mês de junho no hemisfério norte e dezembro de 2015 pelas nossas bandas). Antes de julgar esta moda de sem graça e sem inspiração (minha primeira reação, confesso) vale lembrar que os looks monocromáticos em tons neutros garantem um resultado elegante sem esforço, fácil de dar certo e que ainda realça (bastante) o bronzeado. Nos acessórios, escolha um tom metálico e fique com ele. A ordem do dia é mais design e menos cor!
  • Tendência animal: a volta da coruja

    Roberta Graham
    18 Sep 2014 | 9:06 am
    A coruja é uma ave carregada de simbolismo e, talvez por este motivo, muitas vezes mal interpretada. Já não sabemos mais se a coruja traz sorte ou azar, bom ou mau agouro, dinheiro ou pobreza, visto que as informações sobre ela foram se acumulando de modo incoerente através dos séculos. O fato é que, mesmo com toda a propaganda negativa, vez por outra ela aparece no imaginário popular e é ressuscitada pela moda.Podemos dizer que estamos vivendo um destes momentos agora. Desconfianças à parte, vale lembrar que a coruja é o símbolo da intelectualidade (devido aos seus grandes…
  • Batalha de tendências: Floral x Minimalismo

    Roberta Graham
    17 Sep 2014 | 6:45 am
    No mundo das tendências, a palavra de ordem da vez é o minimalismo (falamos sobre ele aqui). Em Londres, porém, onde o céu é cinza quase o ano inteiro, as flores ainda não parecem dar sinais de cansaço. O resultado que apareceu na "passarela das ruas" foi uma divisão de águas entre a turma do bege e a turma do colorido.O blog, interessado neste contraponto de filosofias, montou uma batalha com os looks que melhor representaram cada time na porta dos desfiles. Nas passarelas, ainda identificamos as cores e as estampas com muita força na Inglaterra. Poderá a terra da Rainha ser…

    Semana passada estive e uma das lojas da Nespresso no Rio de Janeiro para conferir o lançamento no novo blend da marca. O café Cubania, feito para ser consumido curto (em doses de até 15ml) e com a adição de muito açúcar é a opção mais encorpada que a marca já comercializou. Para chegar até este resultado, foi necessária a combinação dos grãos arábica (mais suave e cítrico) e  robusta (encorpado e amargo), além de submeter os grãos a um processo de torra característico da ilha de Fidel.O resultado é um café que levanta até pedra, ideal para ser consumido pela…

    Durante os últimos quatro dias, o Rio de Janeiro parou para receber a ArtRio - a feira de arte que agita a cidade todos os anos no mês de setembro. Desta vez, foram quatro armazéns do Cais do Porto que tiveram seus espaços ocupados por dezenas de galerias, centenas de artistas, milhares de obras de diversos países. Nomes consagrados como Damien Hirst e Yayoi Kusama se misturaram com novos artistas, deixando a distinção entre famosos e anônimos pouco clara.

  • Nais Italian Kitchen…Italy in JLT

    Marianna Boguslavsky
    16 Sep 2014 | 6:49 am
    Nais Italian Kitchen is one of those super cute Italian cafes where you want to spend every afternoon just sipping cappuccinos and indulging in creamy tiramisu. It’s ideal for a casual lunch and a fantastic venue for business meetings as you are guaranteed quality in terms of service, food, and ambiance. It’s an unique concept that just works as the menu is bursting with authentic favourites from the Piedmont region – reflective of the owner’s (also named Marianna) northern Italian roots – and each dish has its own special twist. Some of the highlights of dining at…

    Forever 21 has come to South Africa! I have been waiting for this day for FAR TOO LONG. Since my first visit to Dubai last year December, I have been in love with this store. The jewelry is amazing, the clothes are affordable, and everything is just so darn pretty. I was really curious to see how Forever 21 South Africa was going to measure up to Dubai. Well…they did good. Real good. When it comes to store size and stock variety, SA is on par with Dubai here. Forever 21 has pretty much taken over half of Canal Walk (well not quite, but close enough). They really brought their…

    I’ve blogged about my first visit to Jacques la Coupe salon and his amazing handiwork (my sister calls it my ”Kardashian hair”) last year. Whilst my first time visiting the salon was just for a haircut and a blow dry, this time around I decided to add a few highlights to my hair. I went in thinking I wanted red highlights and walked out with warm caramel honey highlights (Jacques knew the exact shade that would look great on my hair and he managed to explain it so nicely that I was convinced almost immediately). The actual hair colouring process was hassle free, and quick. A…

    This past Tuesday night was my third time at GQ Bar Dubai and (as usual) it was a fantastic night out. GQ Bar ticks off everything I look for in a going out venue – trendy & stylish decor, comfy couches, awesome vibe, and the best sushi and cocktails in Dubai (trust me, I’m a sushi snob). See that smoky bowl above? That’s GQ Bar’s Woody Allen cocktail – a favourite amongst the guys.

  • Knead Bakery night menu

    5 Sep 2014 | 5:11 am
    I have been in Cape Town for almost two years and I am only now discovering the epic Knead Bakery night menu. 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…

    I recently came across a shoe that on the second-hand market that I have been pining over for a long time. This shoe is none other than the cordovan tassel loafer. The only problem was one that all of my thrifters, Ebay scourers, and other experts of the second-hand/vintage clothing markets can relate. Will they fit? This specific pair of tassels are Crown Windsors made by Bostonian. These tassels are not from the current iteration of Bostonian, but rather from an era when their quality was on par with Allen Edmonds and Alden.

  • More Tie Talk: Lands’ End

    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…

  • So, Your Partner Wants an Open Relationship: Is This Just Honest Cheating?

    Ashley Papa for Fox News Magazine

    On ‘Sex and the City,’ Samantha claimed not to care if Richard needed to sleep around…but cared when he did. Your partner wants an open relationship, but is it the solution to an unfulfilling union, or is it just “honest cheating?” Many agree that one of the worst things about infidelity is the betrayal that occurs. But is it really cheating when it’s consensual? “Open relationships” are usually defined as a relationship in which two parties agree that each or both partners can pursue sexual relationships outside of the committed relationship. And since…

Since God of War is my favorite franchise of games, I have posted quite a bit of Kratos cosplay in the past including the recent post of a female Kratos with flaming red hair, a guy that pulls off a pretty good Kratos and some rather beautiful gender bending Kratos cosplay.  Well, this is the first time I have come across some Kratos cosplay…

    Tomorrow is the big day!  Doctor Who returns with Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor and I couldn’t be more excited!  I am really curious to see how he does as the new Doctor and I am looking forward to seeing if he is as dark as everybody seems to be hyping him up to be.  Speaking of the 12th Doctor, despite having dozens of Doctor Who t-shirts, I can’t say I have any featuring him but thanks to the shirt below, I can have one with not only him, but all of the Doctors!  Well, not counting the War Doctor that is. The incredible folks over at ThinkGeek are selling this…

    Although I have never got around to finishing any of the Borderlands games, from the time I have spent at least with the first one, I think they are quite good.  Perhaps if my schedule will allow, I will get around to finishing the first game so that when the pre-sequel comes out in October, I can play it before going into the sequel since that seems to be the most logical order to play them in.  Until then, some great Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel cosplay should wet the appetite for the upcoming game!

    For as much as I enjoy going to various cons to check out the cool panels and meet the celebrities whose work I enjoy, my favorite part is easily the cosplay.  It is always a thrill to be walking through the convention halls and pass people dressed as Super Mario, the Doctor, Darth Vader, even a few TARDIS’.  Well, speaking of some amazing cosplay which I wish I had seen in person, I found some cool pictures of some amazing Rule 63 Kratos and Ganon cosplay. These pictures take by Mike Kowalek feature some of if not the best female Ganon (from the Legend of Zelda franchise) and…

According to his show notes, Ford mined his own designs from the late Nineties for inspiration — though some of the looks also were a nod to Hedi Slimane’s rocker take at Saint Laurent.

  • 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…

What began as military uniforms are now military camouflage fashion clothing, unique in its design with some being more pixilated in design in different colors while others have bizarre patterns.

    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.

    Oh hi! I'm now here in Lagos and I am officially taking a much-needed beach/doing nothing break for the next few days. The past month of travelling has been one of the most incredible, eye-opening, inspiring and exhausting experiences of my entire life. I honestly haven't rested since I took off from Vancouver, and while I wouldn't have had it any other way because I'm so grateful for all that I've seen, I also haven't really had a chance to just catch my breath and reflect upon all the amazing things I've experienced. I've finally had a chance to just soak it all in tonight while…

    Flats c/o Tieks, Walter Baker leather jacket, H&M shirt, Obakki skirt, necklace c/o Poppy Finch, bag c/o Roots, bag c/o One Fated KnightMy stay in Copenhagen may have been an exceptionally short one (just 2 nights!) but it was enough to instantly lock in a return again one day, if only to tour around the city by bike again and eat some of the best food I've ever had. Read the full post after the jump!I landed in Copenhagen in the evening after a majorly stressful incident beginning in the Dublin airport. You see, in life we all have these mess-ups that are just so.

  • The cleanse that will have you bikini ready for your next vacation

    {island fever sisters}
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:59 pm
    With a European getaway planned, I wanted to look and feel my best. No muffin top, no sucking in my tummy till I can’t breathe and to be truthful, I want to have gelato on the daily without having a few muffin tops. Is it bad that I wanted to lose a few to gain some and not feel so guilty? Ha!Well, I’m happy to say that I’ve discovered a new cleanse, called the Bikini Cleanse and just finished my 7 days of detox and I actually got to eat on it. Yep! I got to eat real solid food. I will be honest and say that I don’t get on the scale anymore (numbers don’t mean a thing!), so I…

Talk about needing a vacation, it was a constant go like being on the autobahn…Having my sister/bff in town is always an endless week of laughing and being kids all over again. We managed to score a jaw-dropping sunset from the beautiful Halekulani Hotel where Cindy stayed. With the luxurious feel of the hotel and 5-star service, it was only appropriate to be dressed in these gorgeous embellished kaftans from Rhode Resort.Talk about a showstopper kaftan that will…

    Hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day Weekend and enjoyed those last days of summer. Cindy left her hustle and bustle island for Oahu (another hustle and bustle island) and it was an island fever sisters reunion for sure. Whenever we get together, it’s just like being kids all over again.The weekend consisted of a lot of sand in the okole (butt in Hawaiian) and eating like there was no tomorrow. This was our weekend schedule: Sun worshiping, eating, sun worshiping, eating, sun worshiping… EATING. Ugh.Here are some fun photos of this past weekend in Lanikai. We managed to find a little…

    Growing up with a Korean mother, we were taught about skincare at a very young age.

  • How to Mix Silver and Gold Jewelry

    17 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    The debate over whether or not it is okay to combine silver and gold jewelry is about as old as the debate on wearing white after Labor Day.  Long ago it was seen as incredibly gauche and tacky to wear gold and silver in one look.  Now, it seems, the rules around this dictum are much more lax.  Despite the loosening of metal mixing protocol, it still doesn’t make it any easier for most women to figure out a how to mix silver and gold jewelry in a way that looks purposeful and stylish.  In today’s accessorizing post I am going to give you my tips on how to do it.

  • Stylish in Overalls Without Looking Five, Like a Farmer or a Fool

    16 Sep 2014 | 2:00 am
    I don’t know what I was thinking when I decided to do today’s One Item Five Fashionable Ways on looking stylish in overalls.  First, is it even possible to take this utilitarian garment and style it fashionably?  If you asked the me of 15+ years ago my answer would be yes because, after all, you couldn’t be a twenty-something of the 90′s without owning a pair.  Working on this post, I thought about how often I wore mine (stylishly, of course), that my friends owned them, and that they were a perfectly fine garment to wear just about anywhere.  I won’t…
