As it begins to slowly inch from winter to spring, we’ve begun to reexamine our wardrobes, pulling out some of the light coats and spring dresses that have been shoved in the back for so long. The savviest fashionistas among us have a dedicated plan for switching from winter to spring. One thing I like to do — I do an end-of-season boot/shoe examination. Any shoes with busted soles or worn-down heels get taken to the cobbler ASAP. That’s because there’s nothing worse than waiting until the first cold day of fall to realize all of your boots have busted heels.
So tell us: how do you make the transition? What are your seasonal switch tips? Keep reading »
It’s not so much that we’re opposed to this shirt–which reminds of us one of the most beloved television characters of all time, Dorothy Zbornak–it’s just that no one should ever pay full price for a shirt like this when so many languish in the thrift stores and vintage shops of America. If you can’t find a grandma-style sequined shirt at your Salvation Army, well fine, spend a hundred bucks on this Modcloth number. But really, with a little digging, we imagine you could rustle up a whole collection of these beaded beauties. [$97.99, Modcloth] Keep reading »
Since “Gossip Girl” and its histrionics are going to be on hiatus for another month or so, I thought we’d take a look back at one of the greatest friend pairings (or is that frenemy pairings?) on earth via the show’s two biggest stars — Blake Lively and Leighton Meester. Both ladies have great style — I mean Blake’s been chosen as the new face of Chanel, and Leighton’s just gorgeous. But who would win in a true style showdown? Let’s take a look after the jump!

Jena Malone wore a white-on-white-on-white ensemble to last week’s “Limitless” premieree, and radiated sexy, clean beauty. We love the way she offsets the sheerness of her blouse by buttoning it all the way up, and like the subtle texture play (pleats! edgy jacket!) at work, too. Yes, you can wear white after Labor Day — and a lot of it. Steal her look, after the jump! Keep reading »
Women often get a bad rap for being shoe obsessed, but most women I know have nothing on the men of the Mexican town of Matehuala. The men and boys in Matehuala have been busy trying to outdo themselves with more elaborate and outlandish shoes–like the oversized elfish cowboy boots shown above. Styles and trends change rapidly, and the guys struggle to keep up with one another’s shoe habits. They wear the boots to guachero dance contests, but they also hold contests for the longest and most elaborate boots. [Vice] Keep reading »
I don’t know who this phantom saxophone player is, but I do know that we already have one very important thing in common — our undying love of adult contemporary sax solos. Mystery George Michael saxophone player, call me. [YouTube
