It’s My Wedding Day And I’ll Sue If I Want To

Wedding planning ’tis always a bit of a hassle. Despite hours upon hours of meticulous planning something is bound to go wrong. Grandma gets drunk, the ring boy swallows the wedding band, the maid of honor locks herself in the bathroom crying about how she looks like a fat cow and won’t come out. There…

Crave: Tory Burch Jelly Reva

Jumping in puddles…what delight it brings to the inner child. Our shoes, however, are not quite so happy with our love for water sports. We could wear rain boots, but it’s been difficult finding a pair that don’t look downright silly in the summer or are cute enough to actually want to wear. In a…

The Power And Politics Of Height

I was intrigued by the amount of interest and opinions voiced in last week’s posts about height, which led me to think that there was more on this topic than is usually discussed. When I think about height, it is usually in terms of style. As the fashion industry tends to favor the long of…

Unfogging The Fashion Future

A recent New York Times article stated that for every step fashion step forward, fashion took three steps back. This theory got me thinking, is it true that every new trend is actually a revamped version of trends past? While there is certainly no lack of innovation in fashion, very few styles are completely fresh…

What’s In Your Bag?

Some say the eyes are the window to the soul, but when it comes to women, I’d argue that it’s what’s in her purse that offers the real clues as to who she really is. Every so often, we’d like to delve into the depths of one woman’s bag and look at what she can’t…

How Will History Judge The Style Of The ’00s?

Don’t Look Like A Hot Mess This Summer

As the humidity and temperature spike, so do our chances of heat-induced fashion problems. Every time I step onto a bus or subway or slide into a steaming car, my body sticks to the plastic on the seat and my clothes cling to my legs, delivering me to my destination stinky, clammy and busted-looking. But,…

Confessions Of An Over-Packer

I sort of have a packing problem. In theory you don’t need all that much for a weekend away, it’s only two or three days after all. I always start out very organized and plan my outfits to save space by avoiding redundancy. This forces me to think of what I will need, and that’…

Everyone From High School Is In The Tabloids!

Imagine you are sitting in your high school English class. On your right sits Mischa Barton, soon to star on a show called the OC. On your left sits Alexandra Daddario, star on the soap opera All My Children. Behind you sits Tell Carlson, male supermodel and star of Christian Dior’s 2004 spring and summer…

How To Avoid The Hidden Perils Of Independence Day Parties

Sure, sure, the Founding Fathers saved us from tyranny and taxation without representation blah, blah, blah. I doubt good old George Washington or jolly Jefferson realized the danger they were placing the future of American women in. Obama is protecting us from aliens attempting to enslave the human race, but who is going to protect…

I Live in NYC, So Where Are All The Celebs?

Every morning I peruse the daily newspapers and online blogs to see what has been going on in the world while I slept. Sometimes I am waking up refreshed from a good nights sleep, sometimes I am a zombie and every blue moon I am hungover. The morning after a night out is always a…

5 Things We Tell Guys We Don’t Mind, But We Really Do

We all tell little white lies. The world would stop turning and erupt in bloodshed if we said what we really thought all the time. I have been thinking, however, that while I have to constantly change things up with women, I can keep on telling different guys the same altered-truths because their questions never…
