They say “The higher the heel, the closer to God.” But I say, “The higher the heel, the farther you fall when you trip in those heels and bust ass.” Stilettos are sexy as hell; they’ll give you the illusion of legs for days and can even boost your self-confidence, but the price of beauty ain’t cheap. Any woman who’s ever slipped on a pair of stilettos knows that new heights come with their own set of struggles, and cobblestone streets are just the tip of the iceberg. Here are 13 pain-in-the-ass problems all too familiar to the heel-wearing kind. Keep reading »
Ahh, the changing seasons, the cooling temperatures, the falling leaves, the new excuses to shop for “must have” items for your closet. I have mixed feelings about fall fashion. On one hand, I love to have a good reason to blow some money on pretty things. On the other hand, I personally find fall fashion trends to be hit or miss. Colorful fur coats? With what money? Ankle length leather skirts? Whut. Why. Embellished socks? WHO’S GOING TO SEE?! But there are some fall trends that I am totally buying into and dammit, I think you should too.

One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel.

And you don’t have to wait until spring to wear them — palm prints are already everywhere in stores, so what are you waiting for?
Nearly every day I’m wearing something on my person that came from J. Crew. I am a disciple; an unofficial, uncompensated walking advertisement; a diehard fan of their toothpick jeans, Capri flip-flops, Everly pumps and assorted overpriced sweatshirts that I refuse to buy unless they’re on sale. And come spring, I will no doubt be adding at least a handful of the items shown as part of the brand’s NYFW collection. Spoiler alert: Tight, constricting fabrics and silhouettes are out, and baggy — baggy shorts, baggy shirts, baggy jackets — are IN.
Hey guys, I’m off to Cinque Terre in Italy and all I’m bringing with me is an Italian dictionary, a camera and a suitcase full of all the clothes from Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Ciao, prometto di scrivere!
Just kidding. I’m not going to Cinque Terre and I certainly don’t have a suitcase full of Minkoff’s silky pastel dresses and tanks or airy striped shirts and skirts. But a girl can dream. Check out some of my faves from the collection below!
