Just Because It’s Hot Doesn’t Mean You Need To Be A Hot Mess

I sweat like a beast when it’s hot out and I’m running around. There. I said it. I’m so not that girl who somehow looks perfectly composed as I enter the cool air-conditioned office from the punishing 90-degree heat outside. Sorry. But my personal heat-induced nastiness has given me time and incentive to find ways to contain the terribleness. Here’s how to keep the moisture at bay on those days when it’s very, very clear that you’re minutes away from looking like a hot mess. Keep reading »

Is The Secretary Of State’s Wardrobe In A State Of Emergency?

When it comes to Hillary’s style choices, it seems she’s in a lose-lose situation. She pioneered the pantsuit revival, but some take issue with her signature outfit. When it comes to the “pants saga,” Newsday says the Secretary of State has been looking especially dowdy as of late: “[Her suits are] looking downright shabby, not a bit flattering these days and well, kind of (yikes) jelly beanish.” Clinton Kelly of “What Not To Wear” slings some mud, too: “There’s no doubt in my mind that a colored pantsuit would end up on the top of the trash can on the show. Colored pantsuits are a little silly, outdated and aging. They don’t look like she’s a leader of the modern world.” What’s a Clinton to do? Keep reading »

What Are Your Biggest Fashion Money Wasters?

I have a closet stuffed with clothes. Yet I have I-have-nothing-to-wear syndrome coupled with the sad realization that I wear only 25 percent of my wardrobe. However, that doesn’t seem to stop me from adding a half-dozen things every few months that usually end up with the other 75 percent of my collection. Apparently, I’m not the only one who wastes money on fashion! The Daily Mail reports that an astonishing 45 percent of swimwear purchased each year by U.K. women goes unworn, wasting the equivalent of about $470 million. It’s clear why swimsuits make for money wasters (stupid ladymag bikini body programs that you vowed to do, but didn’t). What else is going unused in your closet? The answers, after the jump.

Seventeen Mag Goes Retro For September Issue

Of all the high-fashion, high-concept, high-flying September magazine covers out there, this is our fave. Behold the first-ever cover of Seventeen magazine, from September 1944, which will also be the subscription cover of their upcoming September issue for 2009 in honor of their 65th anniversary. We love that the cover model hasn’t changed: a young, pretty, all-American girl. But everything else has! Notice the single cover line? The first edition keeps it simple with “Young fashions & beauty, movies & music, ideas & people,” instead of the standard shtick you see on teen fashion magazines today. (“284 ways to change your look” — anyone?) The magazine was pretty cheap too, only $0.13. Today, it’s $2.99. [Chic Report] Keep reading »
