    Here I go dusting off the cobwebs again. Life has just been flat out busy. During the last 10 months I got married, quit my day job to run The Home T full time, went on an epic trip to Africa (more to come on that) and have traveled quite frequently for business trips. I’ve managed to get in some shooting for personal enjoyment, but putting the shots out for public conception hasn’t been my number one priority. I guess in this social media and always on world we live in, sometimes it’s nice to just have something for yourself. But hey, let me contradict that last statement…

    1 Sep 2014 | 2:26 am
    Time to give that pointer finger a rest. Polara, the Corona missile and medical company that manufactures the signals for most of L.A.’s 18,000 crosswalks, uses robots to test the buttons, poking each model 300 million times—but pedestrians need do it only once. A single push disrupts the electrical current in the wires, triggering a controller that changes the light. Now if it could just zap away our impatience.

  • Quick Read: Gangsterland

    David Kipen
    1 Sep 2014 | 2:16 am
    Writing well about criminals for law-abiding readers is something of a confidence game. The author imparts a few persuasive details, implies there are plenty more where those came from, and we sign a blank check for our credulity. The award-winning UC Riverside professor Tod Goldberg has this stratagem down. His latest novel, Gangsterland, follows a fugitive hit man from a Chicago bloodbath to a Las Vegas synagogue, where he emerges after plastic surgery as a junior rabbi to a rogues’ gallery of sonsabitches in Sansabelts. The setup is blackly comic, the plotting a tad rococo, the payoff…

    Apparently big spenders frequent Scopa Italian Roots near Venice. The beach adjacent restaurant quietly debuted a “Segreto Cocktails” (aka “secret cocktails”) menu featuring big-buck libations just last week. We’re talking drinks ranging $125 to $375 EACH. Why so much? They’re made with ultra-rare and premium spirits like Whistlepig’s limited edition “The Boss Hog” rye and The Macallan 25-year single malt scotch, costing not much more than if you ordered the booze neat. True, expensive cocktails aren’t a new thing in L.A. There’s that $100 margarita at Red O, Copa…

    After winning over downtown, the demand-based parking system known as LA Express Park has Westwood Village, Hollywood, and other L.A. neighborhoods in its sights. LA Express Park is one of those instances where technology actually makes life easier (instead of more complicated); going to the website or via a mobile app, drivers are informed which metered parking spots and spaces at city-owned lots are unoccupied. Wireless sensors under the spaces keep drivers constantly updated, so they can head to a specific space or a cluster of spaces. The benefits are numerous: less circling for spots,…

    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…
  • Dansko Olive Oxford

    20 Aug 2014 | 8:26 pm
    What’s trim, slim and glimmery all over? The new Dansko Olive oxford, that’s what. This is no clunky-chunk clog (as cute and comfortable as they are), this is a bonafide shoe. The Olive is from Dansko’s Marseilles collection of low-heeled (1″ with 1/4″ platform), tailored shoes with removable, contoured footbeds. See the extra cushioning at the heel in the photo above? Nice! I love the look of the metallic leopard leather upper. It’s a subtle animal print with a hint of glint, yet remains neutral enough to go with many outfit combinations and colors. I…

    Hi Kirsten, I found your blog and email address and need to your advice and help. I am 64 yrs old, had both my knees replaced and have arthritis in my neck, back, hips, knees and feet. I wear a 6 1/2 medium or wide shoe. My toes are curling and I have a couple hammertoes. I have a high arch. I get cramps in my arch and the top of my foot. I can’t wear shoes that lace as it hurts the top of my foot and the sides. I’m looking for an inexpensive shoe that is roomy, has arch support, excellent cushioning that I can slide into or have velcro. I’ve tried shoe gels, pads but they…
  • OTBT Springfield

    This shoe just won’t go away. The OTBT Springfield style keeps coming back year after year in new colors, textures and patterns. I wish more shoe companies would hold on to their beloved styles instead of retiring them after a season or two (Hello Dansko, I’m talking to you).  The Springfield combines slingback, mary jane and wedge into one cute shoe with attention to comfort details such as: EVA footbed that molds to the foot and provides good support and light cushioning, wide toe box and adjustable instep strap. Even the 1 1/2″ wedge heel provides a little lift which…

    Hi Kirsten, First, thanks for the fabulous website and for making the content available on Pinterest. What a great service! I was recently diagnosed with RA, and thus far, my feet and/or ankles bark the loudest, with pain and swelling that comes and goes. Most recently, my left Achilles has been acting up, making it impossible for me to wear anything but mules or other backless shoes. Since you’ve been dealing with RA for a while, I’d like to ask you how you deal with the shoe-size fluctuation that results from transient pain and swelling? For years I’ve worn a size 10, but…

I sit with them and help (it’s usually William and Alex) them craft proper sentences, but it’s totally them and their thoughts. They LOVE to help in the kitchen, so I told them we could do a little cooking series. We made cookies and muffins this weekend – all from the box – but it was a lot of fun for them (and much easier for me).We failed at the Corn Muffins today.

They got their new shoes. They even brushed their teeth without me asking. Everyone was “on” yesterday, even me and Matt.Actually… it’s funny, for some reason Matt thought school started at 8:00AM, so he was running around trying to get everything done and ready. Finally at 7:45AM, I was like, “Why are you rushing?” He said, “They need to be at school by 8AM!”…

Unsurprisingly, they weren't Vans or Supergas, but designer: Saint Laurent's Black & White Babycat Print Slip On Shoes ($395).  Now yes, that's more than your average pair of kicks, but considering this is Saint Laurent we're talking about, the price is not that outrageous. And that's probably why there are only two sizes left! So if you want a pair, better act fast. Saint Laurent Black & White Babycat Print Slip On Shoes ($395)…

  • The 7 Shoes That Should Be In Your Closet Come Fall

    Summer is great for many reasons (summer Fridays, backyard barbecues, open season) but footwear is not one of them. How can you really express yourself with a pair of strappy flat sandals? The answer is not at all. ("Oh, look, this pair is almost Grecian!" "These ones have a T-strap!" Whoop dee doo.) The point is, summer shoes are incredibly boring while fall footwear is anything but. Think back on your childhood--I bet the shoes you cherished most were bought for back to school. The pair you were so excited to break in and were totally scuffed up and ratty by the last day of classes. For me,…

(By the way, if you haven’t read #GIRLBOSS yet I HIGHLY recommend it.) I’ve always admired girls who can rock vintage, and I enjoy browsing through vintage stores, but I never really got into it. Until now. Wearing vintage is a way to preserve and admire history. That vintage shirt, dress, or skirt has a story to tell, and it’s always fun to imagine who might have worn a certain piece before you. Buying vintage is also environmentally friendly…

  • How to Be a Vegetarian in College: A Guide to a Healthy, Animal-Friendly Lifestyle

    Photo Credit: ELLE One of the things I am consistently asked as a vegetarian is “how do you do it?” I think what people mean is how did I ever give up meat, but as a life-long vegetarian I interpret the question more as “how do you find all your nutrients and stay healthy?” It wasn’t difficult at home, where all my meals were chosen by me or cooked by my vegetarian mom. However, once I walked into the campus dining halls and realized I didn’t have easy access to a kitchen, I had to make some quick changes to my diet. If you’re a vegetarian or are…
  • Dior: Philosophy and Transformation

    Dior exhibition in Moscow | Photo: Wikimedia Commons Wherever there is a brand, there must be brand consistency. The general shape of brand evolution is the spiral: all it takes to turn a dead circle into it is one step forward. Remixed reiteration, a change of form instead of contents, is common, but it is a rarity for a brand to freeze for a second and take the opposite direction. Did it happen to Dior? Is Simons’ vision a mere step forward or a change of route? What would good old Christian say? Dior. The name itself sounds like a revelation. Be French, almost skip the “r” and…

    The north of England and the French countryside has few things in common. As expected, the language, food and culture differ; generally speaking the two represent completely opposite lifestyles. But, despite that gap, there are a few appreciations that bind them together. Both English and French workwear traditions are well established and supreme in terms of quality and design. Nigel Cabourn and Aigle, two brands that have pursued that proud ambition, albeit in very different ways, represent two different national approaches to the concept of utilitarian clothing.

The agreement would be signed at a UN summit in Paris next year. President Obama is trying circumvent a polarized Senate, which would normally require a two-thirds vote for treaty ratification.

Named after its creator, Frenchman Olivier Midy, the roadster is like the Maybach of motorcycles; It is a rolling symbol of excess. One of the unique design features that immediately catches the eye is the instrument cluster located on the top of the tank. Though not very practical, as it is impossible to see the road whilst looking straight down at the tank, the instrument panel is aesthetically captivating. A more functional design detail is the leather grip pads on the…

    1 Sep 2014 | 4:18 am
    Incredible pipes aren’t the only thing Ariana Grande has, oh no. She also has a pretty sweet sense of style too – and her latest fashion conquest at the SiriusXM studios last week is solid proof of that! She showed off her sleek and sexy legs in a plaid skort (very Cher Horowitz) which definitely did all the talking, and kept the rest of her look simple yet colour coordinated by way of an Oscar de la Renta bolero and black Saint Laurent pumps. By splurging on a Robert Rodriguez skort a’ la Ariana, you can save money on the bolero and shoes by going for something a little bit…
  • Nude pics of Jennifer Lawrence and other celebs leak after iCloud hack

    Another day, another controversial hacking scandal; and this time it looks like Jennifer Lawrence and a host of other female celebs are the victims. Apparently some nude photos of our beloved Jennifer Lawrence have been leaked after an iCloud hack. The pictures were posed on a 4chan thread in an attempt to earn bitcoins – but we won’t be posting them or linking to the thread for obvious reasons… “This is a flagrant violation of privacy,” a spokesperson told Buzzfeed. “The authorities have been contacted and will prosecute anyone who posts the stolen photos of Jennifer Lawrence.”…

And to prove it, she is covering the InStyle UK October issue – showing the world that she is here to stay! The former Pussycat Doll turned solo artist turned X Factor judge was shot by Maxine Eggenberger for the cover and accompanying editorial images, and certainly doesn’t hold back during the interview either.

    We know we said we wouldn’t talk about it again after Beyonce put it to bed a few months ago, but as it was one of the biggest stories of the year we feel we have to reignite the flame. We are of course talking about the infamous lift-gate, featuring Jay-Z and Solange Knowles. Apparently the whole thing – and those Beyonce/Jay-Z divorce rumours we keep hearing about – was staged! At least, that’s what Beyonce’s dad Mathew Knowles told a US radio station. “I know, because we’ve done this,” he began. “From experience there’s a tour going on. You have to sometimes…

    I recently had a chance to try out Head & Shoulders Smooth & Silky shampoo and conditioner. Have you tried the line yet?  Smooth & Silky is exactly the look I want to achieve from my usual frizz-prone, lack luster hair.  Plus, this humid weather makes the unruliness of frizzy hair even worse.  So needless to say I am always up for trying out new products. Both the creamy shampoo & moisturizing conditioner definitely made some improvements in my hair.  It helped calm the itchiness while leaving my hair smoother and more manageable.  I prefer the scent of the conditioner…

    During my first pregnancy, I bought loads of maternity clothes. Honestly, it was daunting trying to get dressed every morning. What would fit that week? What looked good together? It was a hassle. During my second pregnancy, I wizened up and made the decision to create a capsule maternity wardrobe. With a small collection of high-quality basics, getting dressed was a breeze. If I had it to do over again, I would create the same wardrobe but it would come from one place: Storq. With four exceptional basics–dress, leggings, skirt and tank–you’re covered stylishly from the…

    As a mom, I often long for the innocent cool kid look of yesteryear. You know the slicked back greaser hair, poodle skirts, rolled jeans and letterman jackets. Lucky for my nostalgic heart, the hair and poodle skirts may never come back but the jeans and letterman jackets have made a huge comeback for this back-to-school fall season. Kids everywhere can sport the varsity look with a cool jacket, long cardigan and hip tees. Now if they only brought back 5 cent soda shops, I might call it a win-win for all!  From left to right, top to bottom: Varsity Dress, $19.94, at oldnavy.com Stripe…

And even if ‘preppy’ isn’t your thing, the newest styles look and feel fresh thanks to funkier fonts and unexpected shots of color. Also, the old rules of letter placement within monograms can go totally out the window. Your own initials work, but why not do something different like the kids’ initials? The styles featured below are some of my absolute favorite monogram jewelry…

    I’m so ready to trade my sandals for boots in the next couple of weeks. I’m secretly hoping for a quick turn of seasons where I live so I can break out all of the boots I’ve stocking up on the last few weeks during the pre-fall sales. While boots are always on trend during this time of year, I’m looking forward to the wedge boot the most this season. From bootie versions to over-the-knee styles, this is one boot to try for a little extra height and style.  From left to right, top to bottom: Nine West Heartset Boot, $188.95, at nordstrom.com TOMS Desert Wedge Bootie,…

    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…

    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…

My husband at the time was/is a photographer, and he took a lot of photos of me. Yet, for some reason taking a photo of myself was different. I had control over my own image. It wasn’t that the photos I took of myself made me look “prettier” because they seemed to be more emotional in expression than the ones my ex-husband took. Perhaps those polaroids said more about how I felt about myself than…

    (The Last Judgment | Reload - via source) Hieronymus Bosch - born Jheronimus van Aken around the year 1450 - was an Early Netherlandish painter known for his fantastic imagery that warned of fantastically awful punshiments for those who fail to live on the straight and narrow. His triptych The Last Judgment was finished around 1500 (he never dated his paintings) and can be found in Vienna at the Academy of Fine Arts. When closed, the two outside shutter-panels each depict a saint in muted tones in gray, called grisaille; when opened, a three-part morality tale rendered in lurid hues bursts…

    A time-honored sartorial strategy for appropriating power and military might is by wearing it a la mode. "By taking uniforms out of their normal context, designers can subvert their original messages of power and prosperity," observes Fiona Ffoulkes, author of HOW TO READ FASHION: A Crash Course in Style, Designers and Couture (Rizzoli). While the strong runway camo trend was sparked by the various well-funded wars on this-n-that, the print has long since departed Trendyland and become so ubiquitous as to almost be considered a neutral. Almost.  There is still some of the outlaw left in camo…

    13 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    I'm new to highlighters but I've been discovering lately how to illuminate my face. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder ($45 at Sephora) can give you a glow from any kind of light. It comes in six different shades. What shade you choose depends on what kind of look you want. I took a trip to Sephora and the makeup artist there chose Lumnious Light for me. It's a champagne pearl tone that I can't get enough of right now. I actually think this shade works perfectly with most skin tones and it gives you a wonderful soft focus to your face. The description is that it is like candlelight and it's…
  • Too Faced Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder

    11 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    I'm in Europe now and I wanted a powder that would just be something light for my face in hot weather. Even though I am loving my Dolce & Gabana powder, the compact feels a bit too precious to be throwing around in my tote bag. The makeup artist at Sephora recommended I try the Too Faced Primed & Poreless Pressed Powder 0.35 oz ($30 at Sephora) for it's finely milled powder and translucent finish. It adjusts to any skintone and I liked that it wasn't just a pure white powder. The finish is so smooth and it really does reduce the look of my pores around my nose. I've been wearing it…

    admin

    The first Lucchese boots were made for the soldiers who trained at the U.S. Cavalry School at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Brothers Joseph, Michael, and Salvatore Lucchese made their boots first by hand, and later with the help of an inseaming machine. Lucchese custom-made cowboy boots and dress shoes were extremely popular in the 1940s and 50s; Lucchese boots appeared on famous feet such as Bing Crosby’s and Lyndon B. Johnson’s. Though the company has relocated to El Paso, they brought along their reputation for exceptional hand-made boots and continue to produce the same…

    It’s a shoe…it’s a boot…it’s a cutout ankle bootie! This Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial last Flats Friday of summer, and I, for one, am excited to embrace the impending boots weather. We have been falling back in love with ankle booties lately but are always looking for a way to update our favorite flat boot trend. This fall, try cutout ankle booties and easily style them with everything from a dress to skinny jeans. Often designed with chunky buckles, they wear like a moto boot but pack a modern punch.

It's a time to shine for both big-name stars like Emma Stone and ladies I'm not as used to seeing on the carpet. And, honestly, when it comes to stellar formal wear, anyone can win. After seeing this Valentino Couture ball gown on Emma Stone, I think deep forest green might be my all-time favorite color on redheads.

    29 Aug 2014 | 7:01 am
    I've already professed my love for the glam cape this week, but it's time to talk about THE hottest coat silhouette we'll see this fall: the duster jacket. And Kendall Jenner—I mean, just Kendall—is already wearing hers. The billowy, near-floor-skimming outerwear style is a refreshing counter to the cropped moto jackets and boxy styles we've been wearing for a few seasons now. The new It model made her long coat transitional on an 80-something-degree NYC day by layering it over a pair of shorty-shorts and accessorized with chunky combat boots.

    For those who consider shopping a total sport (hi, kindred spirits!), strategy is most definitely involved. And the latest nugget to add to your playbook is a little bit jarring if you're still nursing an addiction to sundresses and espadrilles: NOW is the time to be shopping for your winter coat. "The best time to buy a coat is as early in the season as possible. They ship to stores beginning in early August," Brooke Jaffe, Bloomingdale's women's ready-to-wear fashion director, explained. "If you wait until the weather cools down, there's a high risk that the selection won't be as robust and…

    Serendipity is a pretty magical concept. There’s always a debate surrounding the topic of serendipity, or more specifically, coincidence. One side says that there’s no such thing as coincidence, and that random algorithms and probability are to blame for the moments we call “coincidences,” while the other side is convinced that there are cosmic forces at work. Either way, the feeling you get when something you never could have seen coming just hits you in the face – it’s incredible! When it comes to the fence between math vs. the magic of the universe,…

Some parts are nice, and full of beautiful treasures… others are confusing, scary, and sometimes even downright spooky. Every time I log on, I find a thousand things I like mixed into 4.3 million things I don’t care about.

I am both selectively forgetful (what doctor’s appointment…?) and a burgeoning list-maker, so these potential purchases are all kinds of justified in my head right now. Especially because they are only $6. Six dollars each! That puts them in stocking stuffer territory, not to mention “regular purchase” territory. As far as cost per use goes,…

    Growing up, I was very into dressing myself. There was one dress in particular – a white dress with a unicorn on it – that I often insisted upon wearing every day. I had very particular tastes when it came to socks, and did not believe in jeans until I was about 11, and didn’t believe in fitted jeans until I was about 17. I learned a lot from being invested in my clothing. For instance, I learned that all of my favorite clothes to wear are kept on the floor below the hanging clothes in the closet. No matter how many times I think I put them away, that is where they end…

    One of Quentin Tarantino’s finest pieces of work, Pulp Fiction, the modern murder spree noir is a serious classic, and definitely resides in my top 10 films ever. This year marks 20 years since the film hit theaters as Quentin Tarantino’s third film in three years, following his hits True Romance and Reservoir Dogs. What kills me is that there’s an entire generation that think Quentin Tarantino is all Kill Bill and Grindhouse who have never seen Pulp Fiction! It was definitely my introduction to the epic campiness that Tarantino has mastered. His films have almost a…

    Considering the excruciating stiffness and dreadfully boring sense of fashion of us Germans (it’s true! just look around!) it comes as no surprise that it takes a looney pair of Aussies with a lot of sun in their hearts to create something like The Colour Parade here in Berlin. What it is is a fun little gathering of likeminded excentric individuals who want to praise the glory of self-expression in the most of colourful ways: with crazy-ass outfits and make-up. What a joy for the eyes and just what the grey, conformative crowd of Berlin needs to lighten the fuck up. The details after…

    One of my favorite places in Wedding are the Uferstudios. They have become an amazing creative factory for dance and performance in the last couple of years and I had the chance to see a bunch of interesting experimental pieces there that I would have missed in more conventional theaters. As often with off-theater spaces the choreographers and directors working there are young and unknown so far and most of the productions just play a few times only. That is why even for us it is sometimes hard to decide which pieces might be worth the trip and which are not. Fortunately, the Tanznacht…

In the short film you can see model and designer Nicole Roscher (Von Bardonitz) in front of a mirror undressing and dressing in several outfits but edited and looped in a way that the sounds that she made with her clothes and movements assembled a beat and a melody.

Or at least, that was how I felt when Shauna and I flew back to New York. But I didn’t go home. Instead, I took a cab straight from the airport to Sassoon Salon in midtown. I hauled my gigantic pink suitcase over the threshold, hung up my bulging tote bag (laden down with a laptop and all my worldly possessions), and took a seat in front of a basin. Turns out that the best thing after a long flight…

It’s not even cute…But, as I mentioned in my Fall Shopping post, I AM craving sweaters and leggings and sneakers and scarves right now (did you see the new seed stitch sweaters at Everlane? I do want…). I want to layer with abandon and feel the cold air on my shoulders. (but not too cold LOL). That’s not happening any time soon,…

  • The Minimal Closet : on Appreciation

    Grechen Reiter
    22 Aug 2014 | 8:42 am
    By appreciation I mean a couple of things: first, that we appreciate what we have ALREADY, and second that we can appreciate things on others, without having to emulate the look on ourselves. I have struggled repeatedly with both issues, but the second is what comes hardest to me.Think about how many times we’ve scrolled through Pinterest, fashion blogs, magazines or online sites and dogeared a look, or pinned an image thinking we’d like to re-create it somehow. I’ve done it most often on shopping sites, like Shopbop, Net-a-Porter, or Totokaelo. And then we run across…

  • It’s A Skinny Shame: Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda”

    Diana Veiga
    30 Aug 2014 | 9:00 am
    Towards the end of Nicki Minaj’s new song “Anaconda” she says with a slight smirk, “Yeah, this one is for my bitches with a fat ass in the fucking club / Fuck those skinny bitches”. We’ll ignore for a moment that it’s possible for a woman to be skinny and have a big ass. No, it seems that curvy Nicki who dope lyrics aside is also known, well for her anaconda, has seemingly drawn a line in the sand.Girls with big asses on one side, those without on the other. I can only imagine what will happen when this part of the song gets played in the club. There will be some sad, mad, salty…

And lately, there’s one more thing that’s been making me really uncomfortable: White men at rap concerts. They’re wearing Hawaiian shirts, dancing to the wrong beat.

This far-reaching myth typically arises along with discussions about gender inequality or sexism where claims are made that Black women face less hardship than their male counterparts, or even — as stated in Diana Ozemebhoya Eromosele’s latest essay on The Root titled “Michael Brown’s Death Reopened My Eyes to My Privileges as a Black Woman” — are the recipients of privilege…

  • 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.

I picked up Rouge Louboutin, a flawless red inspired by the the brand's signature red soles, at the Madison Avenue boutique the weekend of launch, and it quickly took the position of "favorite red" in my collection. Opaque and glossy in one coat, and luxuriously packaged, it will undoubtedly be the gateway to many a collection.  To celebrate the launch, Christian Louboutin partnered with editorial manicurist Madeline Poole to design manicures inspired by the collection.

  • 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…
  • NARS Audacious: Boldly Going Where No Lipstick Has Gone Before

    eye4style
    23 Aug 2014 | 6:18 am
    (L-R: Michiyo, Carmen, Greta, Lana, Annabella) I've been a bold lip girl for years now. Thoroughly incapable of applying an artful eye, or god forbid, doing something wild like SCULPTING, I rely on a lazy but bold swipe of color on my lips to carry me through the day. As you might expect accordingly, I've accrued QUITE the collection of lipsticks over the years - seemingly every imaginable red, shocking pink and overt orange. In fact, until the launch of the new Audacious Lipstick Collection from NARS, I thought I was all set - no more lipstick for me. Now, I know the error of my ways.
  • Thoroughly Modern Nail Art: Paintbox, Reviewed

    18 Aug 2014 | 6:05 am
    Paintbox Geometry Class Manicure with Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic I was a pretty early adopter to nail art, so it makes sense that I became fatigued by it very quickly - in fact, in recent months, I've been all about a super classic red, orange or pink lacquer for both fingers and toes. But last week, I had drinks with a friend who had the most modern nail art I've seen - a geometric, negative space mani in bold teal. My interest was piqued, and so I booked a subsequent appointment at Paintbox, a newly opened, manicure-only salon in SoHo. Founded by a longtime beauty editor Eleanor…

  • Obsessed with Lipstick Queen

    27 Aug 2014 | 11:21 pm
    I stumbled upon Lipstick Queen back in 2009. I was smitten then. And now, obsessed. There are so many fabulous lip collections to try, creating effortlessly amazing lips day after day. These happen to be my most eager-to-add-to-my-makeup-bag Lipstick Queen products: Let Them Eat Cake (flattering-on-all lavender), Silver Screen in Have Paris (wet look, rich in color), Hello Sailor (perfect berry lip stain), Vesuvius in Blush (luxurious liquid lipstick) and Chinatown in Pink Bluff (original silky smooth chubby stick in sheer nude pink). If you are looking for the ultimate lip color collection…

  • Down Puffer Clutch Coat

    21 Aug 2014 | 12:54 am
    This is not your typical puffer coat. No kidding. And thank goodness, right? Donna Karan understands that women want warmth — and style! I absolutely love everything about this chic coat. Oversized spread collar. Open front. Long sleeves. And long length. This is what I want to hang out in on the weekends this winter. It looks fabulous over dressy and casual ensembles.  It's time to rethink the puffer coat.
  • Shearling Sneakers

    20 Aug 2014 | 1:20 am
    Shearling sneakers? Count me in. I'm not sure what my obsession with a stylish high top is, but this is coolness beyond belief. With an internal wedge, reinforced eyelets, leather laces and patchwork shearling, I am diggin' Black Dioniso's ode to chucks. These just may join the ranks of my metallic high tops. No doubt they'll get worn to football, lacrosse and volleyball games. Maybe I will even work in them! Available from Luisaviaroma

    19 Aug 2014 | 8:40 pm
    I am so ready. For sweaters. Big time. Thankfully, this fall is all about the ease of the sweater. And I have picked out three simple, yet chic, styles to make day-to-day dressing a snap. I am loving this high neck McQ Alexander McQueen oversized ribbed felt-wool sweater. Paired with just about anything, and it's cool. The Rachel cotton-jersey sweater by Karl Lagerfeld is playful and comfy. And Isabel Marant's chunky Sao alpaca and wool-blend sweater brings warmth and coziness on those chilly days. Cooler weather, please come visit! Available from Net-a-Porter

    While browsing one of my favorite sale sites this week – the Neiman Marcus Last Call online outlet – I ran across a cache of J Brand Ready to Wear tops and jackets marked way down. These pieces are gorgeous and minimalist, and on sale for 50% off or more. Check out my finds:1. J Brand Ready to Wear Drape-Sleeve Jersey Blouse, $139.00 (was $395.00)This strikes me as a perfect going-out top, especially for those of us who are past our low-cut tank top days. It’s dressy and stylish, but still quite demure and classy. It will pair nicely with jeans or trousers, and the deep blue is a…
  • 7 Best Oversized Turtlenecks for Your Fall Shopping List

    Stephanie Rahlfs
    27 Aug 2014 | 7:21 am
    Each season has a couple stand out trends that quickly trickle down from the runways to the store. This fall the most obvious runway-inspired trend is the oversized, slightly chunky turtleneck. Considering how cozy and wearable this look is in real life, I’m fully embracing the trend. But, there are just so many options to choose from. Saks alone has over a dozen designer versions of the oversized turtleneck. A lady could get lost trying to find the just right sweater. So, in the interest of all of our sanities, I systematically waded through a range of online shopping destinations to find…

But, oddly, all of the pieces look great together – like a capsule wardrobe, minus the pants. Check out what’s in my online shopping cart this week…1. A.P.C.

Vince Nikita Leather and Calf Hair Loafer, $395.00I spotted these gorgeous loafers in the new fall arrivals at Nordstrom over the weekend.

  • Concrete House: a monolithic lakeside home by Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk in Norway

    29 Aug 2014 | 3:07 pm
    On the banks of Mjøsa lake in Norway, about 100 km north of Oslo in the village of Stange, sits a large monolithic house made from concrete and glass; the work of Oslo-based architect Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk and his team. At first glance, the array of differently-sized windows cut out of the building's facade might look haphazard, but each one is strategically placed. Eschewing the convention for large glass elevations, Holmebakk has created smaller openings in the concrete mass that each frame a specific view. As well as offering vistas across the lake towards Hamar and Domkirkeodden, the…

    As Scotland finds itself on the threshold of deciding its political future, in terms of its architectural present, it seems to be in rude health.   In fact, recent months have seen a slew of built environment milestones, including the unveiling of the new Scottish Crime Campus, which is not only the first built product of the Scottish Government's new architecture policy, but also re-establishes a monumental presence on the former industrial steelworks site of Gartcosh. Similarly, the landscape of Clydebank is undergoing something of boom in new industrial buildings - such as the…

This is “how the sun sees you.” The revealed freckles and lurking age spots are the not-yet-visible results of skin damage from sun exposure. The real magic (and science!) of this video happens when we see what sunscreen looks like in UV light.

  • Is it time yet?

    27 Aug 2014 | 3:03 pm
    Although I'm all about the cooler months, and count the days until fall really starts in October, I'm pretty adamant about postponing fall things until the mornings are cool and foggy and the leaves are orange and red. Only then will I drink pumpkin flavored chai and read Sherlock Holmes. However. We decided to watch Sleepy Hollow as I've heard it's excellent and I'm completely in love with it. It's like if Supernatural, Elementary, Once Upon a Time, and National Treasure all got mixed together, but with the added bonus of lots of female and poc (people of color) characters. I mean…

I'm pretty sure he thought he was a cat, at one point he rolled over for belly rubs.And for my fellow Supernatural fans, my tee says "I am the hand that gripped you tight and raised you from Perdition".  Supernatural t-shirt-Unicorn Empire Skirt-Vintage Shoes-Bass Shoes  JavaScript is currently disabled in this browser.

  • Cotton candy daydream

    14 Aug 2014 | 6:35 pm
    I've wanted cotton candy pink hair for years, long before Vixen Vintage was created, and even before I met Sam! I toy with the idea every now and again, but never follow through. Then one day I woke up, looked in the mirror, and thought "where's my pink hair?" Oh right, I never had it. And that's ridiculous to want something attainable for years but never make the jump. So I made the appointment and spent 8 hours at J. Michael Salon making my dark brown hair platinum, then pastel pink. I made it a bit more vibrant myself using Special Effects in Atomic pink and…
  • Modern Rococo

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

    Fashion Staple Used: Collarless Jacket There are so many denim trends in style right now. One that I’ve liked for a while is distressed denim. I loved to dress up the rips and tears with more feminine pieces. I found this great pair of destroyed jean leggings at Express. The mid-rise makes them flattering and the touch of spandex makes them super comfy! (Petite girl tip: the jeans are a little long but I actually prefer them cuffed).  I made the denim girlie with pink accents and my embellished jacket. A pearl necklace that mimicked the sleeve was the finishing feminine touch. Photos…

    Dry Cleaning Tips We all love that lustrous bronze color in the summer, and while the sun does wonders to help us achieve that look, a little sun tan lotion often gives us that added boost to achieve ” the perfect summer glow.” But the common mistake we all make when applying the product, is not waiting the adequate amount of drying time before wearing our clothing. This often leads to stains and discoloration in our bathing suits and favorite pieces of clothing. So, the best way to keep the stains at bay, is to make sure the product is dry before putting on any swimwear or…
  • Can you get your bathing suits Dry Cleaned?

    admin

    Dry Cleaning Tips The answer is NO! Swimsuits do best in what they were made for…WATER. When some women spend a lot of money on their suit and it has special embellishments or finer fabrics, they think that bringing it to the dry cleaner will help it last longer, but in actuality it does not. It is best to wash your suit at home by hand in cool water or in a washing machine on a low setting. Then leave it to hang dry. Even tumble drying your suit on low is not a good idea, and will only lead to damaging the suit faster. The chemicals used in dry cleaning are too harsh for the…

    The best fashion requires a bit of courage, but some things take a little more guts than others. I’m daring you to take a step in the bolder direction and try one of these five trends in your fall wardrobe. 1. Pair bright colors with other bright colors. Take a leaf out of fall’s book (see what I did there?) and wear one bold color with another. Try pairing poppy with cobalt, and topping them both off with some emerald accessories. Pair something bright and structured, like this McQ – Alexander McQueen moto jacket, with an equally bold yet feminine Preen by Thornton Bregazzi…

The color palette hews toward basic black and white shades (along with an added heather grey option for the crewneck), with all pieces using  “simple graphics with an unhealthy dose of Al Funghi Pizzas.” Check out the individual pieces below,…

Named after its creator, Frenchman Olivier Midy, the roadster is like the Maybach of motorcycles; It is a rolling symbol of excess. One of the unique design features that immediately catches the eye is the instrument cluster located on the top of the tank. Though not very practical, as it is impossible to see the road whilst looking straight down at the tank, the instrument panel is aesthetically captivating. A more functional design detail is the leather grip pads on the…

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…

And her Summer 2015 collection comes to reiterate this idea with a beautiful and very sexy beachwear for powerful women, who do not go to any beach. The pieces abuse of transparencies and unusual indentations that resemble lingerie, without losing the sophistication of the brand. The highlight is the parts with lycra laser-cut applied in tulle with a lace effect created from the pattern of swans -- the main print of the brand this season.What do you think of the line?

      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’ve also been addicted to the old Upstairs Downstairs, Larkrise to Candleford, The Forsythe Saga, the list could go on . . . So, you may ask, what profound vision comes to my mind after all this culture regarding the past? The state of the world as it lurched into WWI? Suffragettes and women’s right to vote? The rise of machines and factories?

    Image via Tumblr Prematurely coloring one’s hair with a gray tint is nothing new. In fact, it’s a trend that started centuries ago. Since ombré began to color our world in recent years, many women have once again intentionally gone gray. Silver strands are everywhere, and the trend is still going strong. Whether combined with soft pastel tones or standing alone, silver can make a striking statement. To lighten one’s locks and prep for shiny gray, hair is first bleached, then given a toner. If you want to skip the salon, there are at-home coloring products available, as well…

When some women spend a lot of money on their suit and it has special embellishments or finer fabrics, they think that bringing it to the dry cleaner will help it last longer, but in actuality it does not. It is best to wash your suit at home by hand in cool water or in a washing machine on a low setting. Then leave it to hang dry. Even tumble drying your suit on low is not a good idea, and will only lead to damaging the suit faster. The chemicals used in dry cleaning are too harsh for the…

  • #1 Flat - Slip on Sneaker

    6 May 2014 | 12:05 pm
    Flats are becoming increasingly more fashionable. You no longer need to wear heels to have style.  When it comes to an evening out or a special occasion, most women opt for heels rather than flats because they feel dressy, more feminine and definitely sexy. But, this year it’s all about the flat. The number one flat this year is the slip-on sneaker.  The shape and sole has remained the same but you will be spoiled with the upgrade of fabrics and patterns galore. Wear them with boyfriend jeans, especially if they are cropped a little shorter. They look great with slouchy cargo…

        By Camilla Saulsbury First up: simplified spanikopita tarts. Spanikopita is a traditional Greek pastry made with phyllo pastry and a filling of spinach, eggs, feta, and a handful of aromatics. I’ve made mine easier by using puff pastry (no layering!) and have lightened the filling a bit with a few egg whites in place of whole eggs. These freeze very well at two points in the process: (1) freeze the assembled, unbaked tarts or (2) cool the baked tarts and freeze. For both freezing options, thaw at room temperature. The baked, thawed tarts can be rewarmed in a 250F oven for…

    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,…

    To Trend or Not To Trend Just a few years ago, fashion editors were complaining about “peacocking” and the ridiculousness of street style. It seems like the pendulum is beginning to swing the other way, because now, it’s all about the basics. Whether it’s denim, a crisp suit, or just keeping a fresh face, it’s never been so hot to not be too trendy. The non-trend-trend, or something.

A baby shower invite can be personalized by including the expectant mother’s favorite quote, an insert from a favorite poem or a favorite bible verse.

    It’s officially time, for the launch of our mini collection in collaboration with the wonderful Toto Knits!! I couldn’t be more excited to finally share, more than just a few sneak peaks – and just in time for fall and back to school!!

    Chris sneakily snapped some photos as I lay in the grass playing DJ while the kids played soccer just beside me (no I totally didn’t get smacked with the ball, I know you were worried) . These blissful moments of stillness for me only really happen when Chris is home, when I’m able to let me guard down a little and just (sigh) enjoy. How am I playing DJ? It’s okay, my kids think I’m a magician too. Well, Sol Republic sent us their wireless speaker,  DECK and we’ve been bringing it everywhere with us; to the park, out in the backyard and to the beach (sorta…

    Changes happen pretty much every week when they are babies and every other month when they are toddlers, the rate we are hit with growth and changes in the first couple years is pretty intense and unfair (time can be so unfair). There has been many changes that have been extremely emotional for me, some that still bring teary memories to my eyes; when nursing my babies came to an end (TEARS), when they started walking (stop growing), when we said goodbye to the stroller (that change was an end to an era) and when they started saying all those (previously) hard to pronounce words, properly…

    Another weekend, another closed down street filled with people and fun. It’s sorta ridiculous the amount of street festivals we’ve been to this year. Many more than the past years and not because there were many more festivals that happened this year, but because I have been much braver and confident taking the two kids to crazy busy places on my own. Not that I’m a chicken, but it’s always a little overwhelming to be around such huge crowds of people with young kids and just me. I finally felt like this year we reached an age where they know the rules when we are out…

    28 Aug 2014 | 11:15 am
    Let’s face it, sometimes the worst part of being a bridesmaid is the dress you’ll wear to the wedding. Never to outshine the bride, the bridesmaid dress has seen its share of unflattering prom dress silhouettes, cheap satiny fabrics and color that would make even the most color blind horrified. But girl next door, mega-blogger, fashion designer and future bride-to-be Lauren Conrad hopes to change that with her new  collection of bridesmaids dresses. With her LC Lauren Conrad line (2009) and Paper Crown (2011), Conrad has had some time to figure out how to put her signature simple and…

    So if you haven’t heard yet, Martin Scorsese is making a bipoic about the greatest rock ‘n’ roll band on earth, The Ramones.  Although there is no news  on production or release dates, the possibilities alone excites us. Really, if a movie were made about The Ramones, we’d want it to be directed by the great Martin Scorsese. Then we started thinking, who would Scorsese cast? Our excitement soon turned into horror as we imagined Martin Scorses’s favorite muse, Leonardo DiCaprio, acting in a role as Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee or Tommy…or any part, for that matter.  Not to say that…

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.

Whatever the reason, Crosby Street, specifically, the section between Prince and Spring, is one of my favorite places to walk in the city. While walking towards Spring (on Crosby) this weekend I spotted a stylish woman having what appeared to be a heated conversation.

In New York, you don’t know if the person speaks English, and you have no idea if they are going to blow you off. It’s a crap shoot each time out the gate. With that said, I wasn’t planning on talking to Maria and hadn’t mentally prepared, but when I bent down to snap a shot of her she immediately stuck her tongue out the side of her mouth and tossed up a peace sign with…

    Emma Stone stirred up a storm at the 'Birdman' premiere and opening ceremony of the Venice Film Festival. The actress debuted a shorter bob hairdo and wore a forthy green tulle dress from the Valentino Couture Fall 2014 Collection. The stunning clash of red hair and the green dress with piercing green eyes made everything about the look too stunning to behold, and Emma sure lit the red carpet on fire. Rings from Graziela Gems and EF Collection, Jimmy Choo 'Xenia' sandals and 'Cameo' clutch in gold completed her look.

  • It takes two: When it makes sense to buy multiples of the same clothing item

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    28 Aug 2014 | 4:00 am
    A reader wants to know: When should I buy multiples of the same thing in the same or different colors, and when should I pass? This is a pretty common question, and a good one. When it makes sense to double up on clothes Here are a few rules of thumb. When it’s a wardrobe staple. Some wardrobe staples, like T-shirts, are worth getting in more than one color. And if you know you’ll wear the heck out of it, you could even get multiples of the same hue. When it fits like a dream. Did you discover that elusive creature, the pair of jeans that truly fit you? Get two, in different washes if you…
  • Tailoring for the top half: What’s worth the money (and what isn’t)

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous

    A reader wants to know about tailoring for the top half: I’ve embraced tailoring investment pieces and work wear (pants, skirts, suits, premium denim), but have never dipped my toe in on blouses, casual weekend dresses, cotton tops. Possible to get good results? Worth the money? The short answer is: yes and it depends. Let’s dive in. When to tailor top half garments, and when not to In general, there is one big reason to have something tailored: your body proportions don’t fit neatly into the box of most off-the-rack clothing.

    More SoftWalk… A reader writes for advice on alternatives to that staple of the footwear wardrobe, the ballet flat. Alternates to the ballet flat as the go-to comfort, chic, work or weekend shoe for skirts and pants? I cannot bring myself buy another pair and yet I wear them all the time! I’ve done black, nude, leopard print, metallic, purple velvet, pointed, round toe, dress and sport ballet flats. I also suffered from “mary jane burnout” in the early 2000s. Ballet flats are a staple in our wardrobes for a reason: they go with everything and they’re easy to walk in.

    What worked for a 2-week European vacation: Outfits that included layers; scarves; and a variety of comfortable walking shoes. No matter how much time you spend planning what to pack for that big trip, you don’t know if your plan is successful until you take it out on the road (or try to fit it in the suitcase in the first place). So after 2 weeks of hauling my backpack through airports, on and off of trains, and up and down subway staircases, this is what I got right—and what I got wrong. Packing Hits Layers. I brought one lightweight cotton long-sleeve shirt, a last-minute substitution…
  • Drab to Fab: Weekend day trip

    Heidi // Frantic But Fabulous
    31 Jul 2014 | 4:00 am
    Summer is the season of travel, whether it’s 2 weeks in Europe or a day trip on the weekend. For the latter, I like the idea of combining comfort with a bit of polish. You want clothes that will survive the ride without looking like a capital T Tourist when you step out of the car. Trade that square, boxy T-shirt for one with a bit of shape and a cute pattern. And who says you have to wear shorts in the summer? A knit maxi skirt can be just as cool and easy to wear (and this one is only $20 at Target—score!). Toss the fanny pack and try a cross-shoulder bag instead. Save the running…

    “Above all, believe in true love and know that men are like shoes. A couple is like a left and a right foot, and out there is your perfect fit. Sometimes you need to change styles and shop around to find it. Sometimes you have to break styles in, sometimes you feel like something that is unstylish but comfortable, and sometimes a style – as much as you like – just doesn’t suit you and will never fit.” C. Morton It is time to start getting ready for the fall and leave the summer love behind – I am talking both high heel sandals and that bonfire romance that make…

    The Emmys are, after the Met Gala, yet another night to follow the trends in terms of beautiful gowns and interesting celebrity appearances. I have never been particularly interested in these kinds of events, but since I am a tv series sort of a junkie, I have decided i am going to take a look, at the winners. This led me to the best dressed list, then to the worst dressed, the to several articles about the night, and then to me feeling sorry that I didn’t actually watch it on TV.

    Who doesn’t love wearing an elegant piece of clothing like a cape on a chilly autumn day?

    I am dying to share my latest accessory score with you, dear readers. I met up with two new thrifty bloggers, Pam and Jen of Frugal DMV, at our Alexandria Goodwill last week to chat about some collaboration. I told myself that I didn’t need to buy anything - I was just there for business. Who else says does this? “No purchases today. Stick the plan. I don’t need anything.” That didn’t last long. Literally within seconds of entering the store, I spotted a brand new looking, tan crocodile printed clutch. “Just browsing,” I picked it up and fell in…
  • Fashionista Friday: Whitney’s Polished Intern Style

    DC Goodwill Fashionista
    29 Aug 2014 | 5:30 am
    There are few people who I would say love and live by thrifting the way I do and today’s fashionista, Whitney,  is definitely one of them. Whitney and I met during our undergrad at St. Mary’s College of Maryland where we became friends through a mutual distaste for the sloppy dress of people in our classes. From there, we found out that we both shop almost exclusively at thrift stores so, you can imagine we had a lot to talk about. Now that we have both graduated, things haven’t changed a bit. In fact, our love for thrift has grown even stronger as we are now roommates.

Start With Great Shoes Teaching is not a desk job.  It’s safe to say, if you spend most of your day sitting at your desk, you’re doing it wrong.  We’re on our feet for hours; standing, walking, possibly even chasing, so we need shoes that can keep up.  I’m a big fan of flats, wedges, and kitten heels for the classroom.  I make a point to check the shoe section of the Goodwill every time I go, even if I’m not…

Be it in a creative field such as graphic design or somewhere more corporate, different environments call for different ensembles. To add to the stress, it’s hard trying to find chic one-of-a-kind office appropriate garments. Although stores like H&M, Zara and Club Monaco are wardrobe staples, it’s always good to broaden one’s sartorial horizon. Here’s a guide to a few haute e-retailers that will upgrade your work…

The one wheel motor cycle which was invented in 1931 and went at a terrifying 150km per hour (93mph) Hamblin glasses. A pair of spectacles especially designed for reading in bed. England, 1936.

    Okay. If you have been following me on Facebook or Twitter, then you know that I am heading on a road trip that will land me in Atlanta- THIS is a 2500 mile DRIVE. I have never had the pleasure of doing a grown up major road trip (Vegas doesn’t count for me) and since it was on one of those bucket lists I had made moons ago, I thought, right before my birthday? Why NOT? So knowing that I was going to be on the road for a minute, I KNEW I wanted to be comfy, somewhat cute, and definitely playful! SO I reached out to Addition Elle to play in a few items and to create my fashion checklist with…

    Marie’s Note: This post is a bit special to me. I was contacted by 14 year old Sarah, who wanted to share and show other plus size teens like herself that there are places to shop and have fun with.

    Hello again, over these last few months I’ve had the pleasure of hitting some topics close to my heart. Your responses have been awesome! Thank you. Today, I want to talk about honesty, sharing our thoughts about and with you, and when to express it. In relationships, we all want to be communicated with, told what’s going on and how you’re feeling but as a man, there is a fine line to that with you. I never think that I’m being rude or insensitive when I’m being honest, I know the way you say things matter. How you say things and the tone in which you phrase your…

    Vicky
    28 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    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…
  • Casa Una by Giorgio Comoglio

    Vicky
    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…
  • Espace St Dominique by Anne Sophie Goneau

    Vicky
    14 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    We seem to crave consumption of communication. I often find myself looking for clues to feeling informed and discovering epic subjects. When I find something relevant that greatly intrigues me, the feeling of wonder and awe usually occurs when it’s in tune with human aspirations. St Dominique space by Canada-based architect Anne Sophie Goneau, celebrates the human potential of making the visible invisible. The 1,600 sq.ft. condo, in a 1920’s industrial building, in Montreal dramatizes an open, illuminated space that catches the light freely. The functions of…
  • House of the Infinite by Alberto Campo Baeza

    Vicky
    7 Aug 2014 | 12:00 am
    Impersonating a small Acropolis, a flat horizontal plane rises from the sand, facing the sea, parallel to the horizon. Architect Alberto Campo Baeza justifies a physical need for stability with House of the Infinite, built in Cádiz. The abstract sanctuary is made of Roman travertine stone. Mr. Baeza’s radical concept of a podium house, along the edges of the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean, suggests a kind of freedom to connect to and dominate the earth. The only disrupting elements to the absolutely flat horizontal plane are a pool, amphitheater and an entrance of the house in…

It's my very first to spend here in sunny California and I hope I will be living many more... My birthday just passed too. Well, I know you are busy enjoying your special time too, where ever you may be spending your Summer, but I wanted to remind you to be consciously enjoying every minute of this wonderful time of the year, so I went back to one of our earlier shoots from this season and picked one for this post. I love the light in this one and the oh so loved palm trees lining up behind…

    We’ve all had the experience of seeing a pair of shoes in the window and downright falling in love ~ the style is everything we’ve ever wanted and will redefine our entire wardrobes.  We’ll try them on, slide that plastic, take them home and then, the very next night, heartbrokenly discover that they are far from comfortable. Perhaps they rub and cause blisters, or pinch your toes senseless.  Before you decide to toss your beloved pumps or give them away, try some of the following tips to stretch out your shoes for maximum comfort.

    With the recent hot and humid weather sweeping over the southern states, I’m literally counting days until the arrival of fall.  Every year around this time, I can hardly wait with anticipation for gorgeous weather, scenery and of course ~ autumn fashion! Most of my dresses are short.  Personally, a short dress worn with a pair of tall boots is a match made in heaven.  One accessory that I’m starting to collect more of is belts.  It’s an easy way to spruce up an entire outfit.  I love this one in particular.

Take a peek at my latest obsession ladies. As soon as I laid my eyes on this spiked moto jacket (on sale for $50.. I know!), I just had to have it.  OMG, the overall style is ahhhhhmazing!!  The spikes are weighty with a hint of shine and perfectly placed on shoulders, sides, front and back.  Effortlessly tough & sexy!

Unsurprisingly, they weren't Vans or Supergas, but designer: Saint Laurent's Black & White Babycat Print Slip On Shoes ($395).  Now yes, that's more than your average pair of kicks, but considering this is Saint Laurent we're talking about, the price is not that outrageous. And that's probably why there are only two sizes left! So if you want a pair, better act fast. Saint Laurent Black & White Babycat Print Slip On Shoes ($395)…

    Summer is great for many reasons (summer Fridays, backyard barbecues, open season) but footwear is not one of them. How can you really express yourself with a pair of strappy flat sandals? The answer is not at all. ("Oh, look, this pair is almost Grecian!" "These ones have a T-strap!" Whoop dee doo.) The point is, summer shoes are incredibly boring while fall footwear is anything but. Think back on your childhood--I bet the shoes you cherished most were bought for back to school. The pair you were so excited to break in and were totally scuffed up and ratty by the last day of classes. For me,…

    I had a close look at a pair of Holster sandals recently and I love them. Plus, Fearne Cotton wears them and I really admire Fearne, so that could be part of it. Regardless, these sandals are vegan friendly and recyclable, getting the green thumbs up. At just £44, they’re affordable and, from what I can see, well worth the money. Plus, I love the stud detailing on the strap and the range of colours. That being said, I do have to be a bit dull and say that the black sandals are definitely my favourite! Which pair would you buy? You can purchase these sandals through the Holster e-shop.

I promise you that no matter what your skintone is, there's a perfect red lipstick out there for you!Here are some of my current faves (pictured above):    Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon ($28.00)    Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in F-Bomb…

    Possibly the most popular shoes in the world, the black pump is simply something that all ladies need to own. 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. Regardless of the cost, you'll find that you will be wearing them time and time again. Think of it this way: how much money would it cost per…

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

Always making headlines throughout her life, whether it be for her marriage to Humphrey Bogart and his admittedly chequered past sexual conquests and love life, or through her own impeccable screen presence and the fact she dared to be that little bit different, through all of it Bacall’s fashion sense shone through.

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…

It’s a holiday that celebrates all of us who have been working all year – summer included – but, deep down, you can’t help think but think of the Labor Day weekends of your youth, spent scrambling to finish all of your summer reading and copying your smarter friend’s math packet. This makes the Monday break from work extra sweet, so you know you *have* to celebrate accordingly. But, what constitutes as “celebrating…
  • SG Wants to Know: How do you deal with feeling overwhelmed?

    27 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    One, two three…One, two, three… I woke up, smiling. In my dream, I had just been ballroom dancing, and finally getting the hang of it. Partnering with my brother-in-law (file that one away for discussing with my shrink), I’d been struggling to get the steps right. He was counting out loud to help me put my feet where they were supposed to go, in time with the music. And I’d finally gotten it. I’d turned myself over to the music and allowed my feet to lead my brain and not the other way around when my alarm startled me out of my dancing reverie. A shame, because I was just…

  • Red Carpet Style: Best Dressed from MTV’s VMAs

    Gabi
    25 Aug 2014 | 6:00 am
    Guys…who watched the VMAs last night? Megan left the country rather than having to opine on Katy Perry and Riff Raff dressing up as Justin and Britney because she’s SO OLD.  Despite my shock that 1D was not only not nominated, but also didn’t even attend, the VMAs were something to behold. Jay Pharoah stole the show (IMHO) with his  hip-hop heavy-hitter impersonations; every female performer chose to wear outfits between “hot pants” and “no pants”; and Miley was dressed (relatively) demure AND did a good thing. But when it comes down to it,…

They’re a good length, aren’t too frayed, and actually fit! My other pair (which I love) are like four sizes too big, so I always have to wear a belt with ‘em, even when I don’t want to.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t do well in super hot weather, I’d rather be cold and snuggle up, then overly hot trying to cool off.

    So when I left you in the previous post we had just arrived in Barcelona and finished our trip to Park Güell. Of course by this time we were starving! We decided to try out a restaurant I had seen featured on many Barcelona sites and also had been recommended to me for some authentic tapas, which was Tapas 24. Tapas 24 was so good that it deserves a post to itself and we also ended up here twice in a 3 day trip, so that pretty much speaks for itself. The restaurant is owned by renowned Catalonian chef Carles Abellan who is the owner of his own Michelin star restaurant, however this is…

I had such a fantastic time and now I find myself craving tapas and 3 euro wine! On our first day we arrived at our hotel the H10 Urquinaona Plaza to check-in, our room wasn’t quite ready yet as it was before 3pm, but they did of course provide us with a welcoming glass of Cava, this was my kind of hotel!

A sueca Malin Elmlid mudou-se para Berlim, na Alemanha, e não conseguia encontrar em toda a cidade um pão que surpreendesse suas expectativas (que aqui entre nós, deviam ser altas). A solução encontrada por ela foi uma imersão em sua própria cozinha onde, depois de tentativas e erros, a fórmula perfeita foi alcançada. Logo, a notícia do pão de Malin começou a se espalhar pelos amigos, que…

Sempre fui adepta do freestyle e nem imaginava que todos aquelas pecinhas juntas deveriam formar um objeto específico. É possível que esta seja uma característica cultural, uma vez que esta maneira de brincar foi responsável pela baixa vendagem de novos modelos da marca no Brasil. Enquano os holandeses, alemães, ingleses e americanos construíam suas casas, helicópteros e carros de bombeiros, as crianças por aqui tinham sempre outros interesses.O fato é que a…

    Looking for a Dubai Marina hotel apartment? We’ve spent the past few weeks staying at the Marina View Hotel Apartments and it has been a welcome change from our Dubai Marina apartment (the non hotel kind, the boring kind).

In fact, most of my collars that produce a standard roll have collar points that measure 3.25”, but I do have a few shirts (new-ish LE Hyde Parks) that have 3” collar points, but produce zero roll. While a collar this size does not lend itself to wearing ties. It can be done. It just requires a little more thought. The key is to match the proportions of your collar to your tie.

    There are so many ways to wear denim right now that you can take this trend through to the hot summer months without even having to resort to jeans. Jeans are a great casual go-to piece but they don't succeed in keeping us cool when things hot up. So instead, consider other ways to wear this failsafe casual texture, such as a super cool denim crop top or bustier, bare those tanned pins in a denim dress or skirt, pop a denim gilet over a light cotton maxi, midi or mini dress, opt for a denim playsuit or short denim dungarees or layer up with a short-sleeved or sleeveless denim…

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

    In 2009, Satoshi Nakamoto introduced bitcoin as open source software and is today known as an online payment software. The unit of accounting here is a bitcoin while payments are listed in a public ledger. The bitcoin payment system does not have any physical form but is dependent on the Internet for its existence. It can be used to pay for goods and services bought online, as in traditional currencies. Bitcoins are made as a reward for people’s prowess at payment processing in which their skill of verifying and listing payments into a public ledger is demonstrated. This is also called…

    The term camouflage clothing has come a long way from the war days when soldiers dressed in  uniforms that blended with the foliage so that they were not noticed by the enemy. But that was a long time ago. Today, camouflage clothing is a fashion statement and it’s common to see all kinds of clothing  with those animal patterns. 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.

    Have you ever embarrassed while raising your hands freely? If Yes, then you are not only one. Lots of women feel uncomfortable while putting hands up due to dark armpits. When the skin in your armpits takes on a dark complexion, the condition is described as dark underarms or armpits. Since dark armpit skin stands out against the fair complexion of your arms and body, it can cause you embarrassment every time you raise your arms. However, this problem can be remedied by natural and medical means. Dark Armpit Causes There are several reasons developing dark underarm skin, such as: Tight…

    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…

    I’m walking out of a subway station the other day when this young lady (obviously a tourist) comes up to me and asks for directions. I help her out, then I think: “This happens to me a lot…”. Is it because of the area (downtown, near the subway)? Or is it me? The thing is, I was never the guy getting stopped for directions. No one ever used to ask me for help. So why now? Do I look older? No. I look the same as I did in college, so that’s not it. Then it hit me. It’s because I started dressing well. You see, when you dress well, you exude confidence.
  • How to Find Affordable Clothes That Actually Fit

    Brock
    14 Jul 2014 | 9:22 am
    How much money do you think most men spend on clothes every year? Hundreds of dollars? Thousands? Most men, myself included, don’t spend all of their hard-earned money on clothing. In fact, the average man spends just $400-1200 per year on apparel. Depending on how expensive your taste is and where you like to shop, this budget could go very quickly. For the record, I believe in quality over quantity. I think you should splurge for certain items, like shoes. It’s better to spend $300 on a pair of high quality shoes that will be worn for 10+ years than $50/year on cheap shoes that…

The felt would rip after a few days and having those speakers directly against your ears was not pleasant.  Those white ear buds once the great status symbol during the early days of iPods were supposed to be an improvement. Not for me. No matter how hard I push them in (which isn’t comfortable by the way) they fall out. Are there any options?  Yes. Ready to march to the beat of your…

I haven't cut it in years either for it to grow longer, but I suppose it's time for a small trim. I'm not too adventurous when it comes to hair so I'll probably just cut the edges a little bit and maybe shape it a little because the way it is now it's just long all over. We'll see!Other…

    Wear Me Out

  • Blue On Blue

    19 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    What I'm Wearing: Shorts J Brand | Shirt Theory, Similar | Shoes BirkenstockSorry about the total lack of posts. I have no excuses except for the fact that summer seems to bring out the laziness in me, and in my outfit selections. But every once in a while I put something nice together. Like this cute and easy blue on blue ensemble. Which, of course, is paired with my birks since I haven't taken them off since I've bought them and my feet are super happy with that. 
  • Pinstriped

    6 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    What I'm Wearing: Shorts Vince | Top Theory | Shoes Birkenstock | Bag BalenciagaIt has been super hot out, which basically means simple pieces that are easy to wear. So for me, that's the perfect pair of white denim shorts and a pinstriped tank. You may also notice there's something different about my feet. That's right, I've finally embraced the Birkenstock. Now, this is not because I suddenly believe that Birks are super cute or anything like that, but as long as they are being accepted as a sartorial staple this summer I might as well give my feet a break. And my feet…
  • Brooklyn Bridge

    4 Aug 2014 | 5:00 am
    What I'm Wearing: Dress A.L.C. | Bag BalenciagaHere are a few pics from the weekend before last weekend when I made the trek over the Brooklyn Bridge and into Brooklyn. It was the hottest day ever but I made it to Brooklyn Flea, which was full of some really cool things. And I wore the perfect little black dress, made of the softest material, and with just a little hint of skin with the cut-out in the back. It's the perfect piece to carry me through the rest of the summer and into fall. 
  • Helmut

    What I'm Wearing: Shirt Helmut Lang | Shorts J BrandHere's just a quick post of this really cute shirt I picked up at the Theory Company Store the other day. If you've never been I recommend checking it out. They have current season Theory clothing (and some Helmut Lang and other random pieces) for 30% off. It's a little bit hidden but you can just google it and find the address. Sorry for the selfie filled post but I just wanted to show you guys this shirt. Back to real pictures soon. (Hopefully.)
  • Stripes//Stripes

    22 Jul 2014 | 9:52 am
    What I'm Wearing: Shorts Rag & Bone | Tee Vince | Shoes Proenza SchoulerI was trying to make a post about this outfit but I found in all the pictures I am being upstaged by my dogs. I mean look at Bella's ears in that second picture. I just can't compete. But, if by any chance you can take your eyes of of my dogs, you can see my outfit. It's really just another super casual summer look with a little pattern on pattern. The pattern on the shorts, however, is very light and hard to capture in a picture. But they are vertically striped with some floral pattern on them,…

    The hotly anticipated Prabal Gurung x MAC Cosmetics beauty range is getting closer, as MAC reveal the first images from the collection’s campaign. Set to launch in the States in November and Britain from December (just in time for party season!), the 14-piece range is said to be inspired by Prabal’s memories of his mother’s beauty products, along with aesthetic influences from Nick Knight, Damien Hirst and Sylvie Fleury. This collection has been two years in the making, although Gurung has been working with MAC on the makeup for his runway shows since 2009. Photographed by Daniel…
