CeCe Peniston was a “few-hit wonder,” and if you weren’t into grunge fashion, then you probably decked yourself out in the glamorous ’70s look that was in vogue at the time. Spurred along by pop singers like CeCe, palazzo pants had a major moment in ’93. They were…

Beauty Gross Out Time: What Nasty Thing Do You Do?

Yesterday, in preparation of my first bare-legs day since last fall, I shaved my legs. I don’t like body hair so I shave my legs even in the winter. But yesterday, as I was about to de-fuzz the first strip of leg, I realized that I haven’t changed my razor in more than a year.

Evan Yurman, the jewelry designer behind the much-anticipated David Yurman Bridal Collection, says wedding jewelry should speak to the wearer.

Who Knew Socks Could Be So Disastrous?

I was really feeling Kelly Osbourne’s retro dress and hat combination and the Rebecca Minkoff “Boyfriend” bag. But that was until I scrolled down to the socks. Why, why, why?
