“Make Friends with Your Hair” is the aptly-named title of Dove’s recent survey that found that only 7 percent of 1,000 women actually love their hair. That’s a really sad statistic, but not all that surprising, because hair is a big friggin’ deal for women. Shockingly though, given the politics surrounding our hair, black women were twice as likely to vote that they love their hair than white women. Keep reading »
Cuffed pants are having a moment, but now that it’s chilly ankles need a little warmth. So swap your plain sweat socks and trouser socks for these cute, stripe, and argyle socks that will look sweet peeking out between your pants and shoes.
Adding Mary Jane shoes to your menswear-inspired suits and blazers is the easiest and most effective way to mix feminine with masculine, a look that returns season after season. There are hundreds of pairs of Mary Janes around, but we found 11 of our favorites that are sexy and fun. Seriously, these shoes are nothing like the Mary Janes you wore as a girl.
I’ve seen and worn some really ugly shoes in my lifetime, namely a pair of cheetah-print velour space boot-looking things. But I was 19 and am now blaming youth for that fashion blunder. Who or what will Miista blame for its hideous Mesh Toehold Boot? I’m not sure which offends me more, the toe strap or that these shoes are a poor representation of a hybrid shoe. In my opinion, the mesh is unnecessary and adds a cheesy quality to the “boot.” And let’s just be serious, this isn’t a boot! What’s even more shocking is that these shoes have received a rating of five stars from three reviewers. Maybe I’m the one who is crazy? Maybe on some fashion planet I have yet to visit the Miista Mesh Toehold Boot is hot?! What say you; do you like ‘em or not?
Ask any of my close friends or family members, and they’ll tell you I’m an extreme shoe addict. I’m also a bit of a hoarder, since I have a problem getting rid of shoes and clothes. I recently counted all the shoes that were visible to me without moving any boxes, and the number totaled 65! (I’m actually embarrassed by that number and refuse to count all my shoes now.) Yet, I tend to wear the same few pairs of shoes each season. So how do I keep my favorite shoes working hard for me year after year? I know the great value of a good cobbler! Keep reading »
Getting sexy doesn’t require your ensemble to be tight and revealing. Subtly will get you much farther in the long run. But don’t think your sexy look has to be (gasp!) boring. Everly’s Bedrock Dress is both visually interesting with its graphic print and sexy with a plunging V-back and exposed zipper. Yet it leaves much to the imagination. Everly is a favorite amongst celebrities, but get this — the Bedrock Dress retails for less than $50 — which leaves you room to splurge on a pair of complementary (and bitchin’) platform pumps!
