7 Seemingly Neutral Topics That Might Start A Family Feud (And How To Recover)

Ah, Thanksgiving: a day of gratitude, binge eating, and togetherness. Unfortunately, that whole “togetherness” thing doesn’t always go so smoothly. We all know to avoid inflammatory topics like religion and politics when convening with far-flung family members, but what happens when seemingly innocuous subjects cause tempers to flare and awkward silence to follow? To hel…

Hair Dos: 6 Vintage Hairstyles To Try Today

When searching for new style ideas, sometimes the best place to look is the past.

Awesomely Affordable: Oxford Shoes

I fell in love with oxford shoes in London, where you can’t throw a Cornish pasty down the street without hitting a pair (not that anyone was throwing Cornish pasties, but you get the idea). I love the vintage, masculine vibe they bring to every outfit, from dresses and tights to wool trousers and cardigans.

Love ‘Em Or Leave ‘Em: Message Sweaters

Remember when message T-shirts were really popular and Paris Hilton was always wearing baby tees that said things like “Hottie” or “I love shoes”? That was a weird time. These days, sweaters seem to have surpassed T-shirts as the wordiest garments. Stores are packed with cozy pullovers and cardigans emblazoned with random sayings like “Bonjour!&#8221…

Hair Dos: 8 Easy Ponytail Alternatives

When it comes to doing hair, I am spectacularly incompetent. In fact, during the makeover portion of middle school slumber parties my friends would make me sit alone in a separate room so I couldn’t “mess anything up.” (It sounds cruel but it was actually a wise decision.) As a result I’ve spent much of…

“Titanic 3D” Is Happening

It’s been 14 years since “Titanic” came out, and I’m not sure about you, but I’ve spent most of that time quietly sobbing, practicing the chorus of “My Heart Will Go On,” and asking anyone with a pencil to draw me like one of their French girls. Looks like our hearts will go on: Paramount…

One Cardigan To Rule Them All

How awesome is this Lord of the Rings cardigan? Unfortunately it’s not actually for sale, just a “pseudo design” from the sweater fanatics over at We Have Cardigans, but I’m planning to gather up some nerdy friends and fabric markers to bring this baby to life. Make no mistake: the battle for a DIY Middle…

Style Inspiration: Downton Abbey

My boyfriend and I are obsessed with “Downton Abbey.” Like, completely obsessed. We watched all the episodes in the span of a week and are currently rewatching them. We love the drama and the writing and the characters, but truthfully, I would probably still watch it with the sound turned off because the sets and…

Would You Wear: Sequined Shorts?

You know in movies when a character is so deep in thought they wander around the city completely unaware of their surroundings, stepping in front of buses and scattering flocks of pigeons? That was me yesterday, pondering sequined shorts. As a diehard fan of sequins, I love every sparkly trend, but sequined shorts bring u…

Shopping Guide: Colorblocking Basics

Colorblocking is a huge trend right now, and for good reason: it’s the perfect antidote to dark winter days. Ready to try it yourself? All you need are two (or more) bright colored solids, worn together for visual impact. Cobalt jeans and a pink sweater, for example. Or a red dress with orange tights. Whether…

An Open Letter to My Razor

Dear Razor,

We go back a long way, you and me. We’ve gotten together a few times a week since 8th grade, although according to some of the girls in my class I should have become acquainted with you at least a year earlier. On the whole, our relationship has been delightfully smooth…

What’s Your Secret Style Crush?

“Are there any styles you can’t pull off so you just admire them from afar?” my friend Becca asked me the other day, and before I could answer she said wistfully: “My style crush is jeans tucked into boots. Doesn’t work on me. Looks amazing on other people.” I gave it some thought and realized…

Style Inspiration: Portland Right Now

After surveying the signature styles of cities like Paris, Rome, and London, I came home to Portland, a place known more for forestry than fashion sense. But contrary to popular belief, there’s more to Portland style than plaid flannel. People here favor casual dresses, cozy cardigans, pretty tights, and tough boots. Whimsical accessories are a…
