Vogue never fails to make me feel fat, poor, wrinkled, and frumpy. Dog Vogue, on the other hand, makes me feel like doing a happy dance. Dog Vogue was created by photographer Sophie Gamand, who had “acclaimed pet couturier” (yes, that’s a thing) Anthony Rubio dress a group of chihuahua models in couture outfits and snapped pictures of the surprisingly elegant results.

Officially convinced that wearing white not just after Labor Day, but through the dead of winter, is a-okay? Great! Here are four ways to wear it inspired by a few street style shots.
If you’re among those who still believe that wearing white after Labor Day is a fashion no-no, this gallery — featuring 20 stylish ladies bundling themselves from the cold in various amounts of winter white — is for you. (Everyone else, don’t feel left out! If you’re already pro-winter white, this gallery is for you too.)
When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the goal of your outfit should be to make the disco ball jealous. The more sequins, glitter, rhinestones, and sparkle, the better. Don’t stop at a sequined dress — go all out with some truly show-stopping sparkly shoes, too! Here are 10 pairs I’m currently drooling over, most of which are around $50 or less. Oh, and they’re all from Zappos, because their shipping is so scary-fast that you’ll be sure to receive your fancy footwear by NYE (I swear I wasn’t paid to say any of that, I’m just obsessed with Zappos and secretly believe they employ precogs to ship my shoes before I even order them). Anyway, click on the gallery to let the New Year’s Eve sequined shoe parade begin!
There are a lot of different shades of green. I’m not sure who to credit/blame for this. Crayola? Mother Nature? Regardless, according to Wikipedia, hunter green is the color hunters used to wear during the 19th century, until “olive drab green” swooped in and stole its thunder in the 20th century. Not to worry! This darker, moodier jewel tone is gorgeous and deserves a place in your closet. Here are 10 pieces to consider…
I’ve never been a total girly-girl. For years, my personal style was pretty tomboyish: baggy pants, plain T-shirts, Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, you get the picture. Once I moved to New York and started working in an industry that can be very image conscious, I definitely “tried on” a girlier sense of style. It took a while to figure out what I was ultimately comfortable in, but at 34, I can safely say that my sartorial instincts are a mixture of both. For example, if I’m going to wear a plaid flannel shirt, I’d ideally pair it with sky-high heels. So when I noticed a number of street style photos of super chic women pairing feminine cut pants, dresses, blouses and skirts with bright and sporty running sneakers, I was instantly intrigued. Click through my earlier Street Style Spotlight gallery for inspiration, and then check out the 10 cool sneaker options I found here…
Trainers. Sneakers. Tennis shoes. Whatever you call them, sporty running shoes are not just for working out. A trend I’ve noticed like crazy across street style blogs of late is super fashionable women pairing their bright and funky trainers with outfits you’d never expect. Leather pants! Girly blouses! Ladylike coats! Imagine that trend in the ’80s, where working women would wear their running shoes while commuting, only the shoes stay on all day and actually look awesome instead of frumpy. I am into this trend! And I’m sure you will be too once you’ve clicked through these street style shots for inspiration…

It seems like these days, it’s not a fashion show unless someone appropriates someone else’s culture and causes a PR fracas. Today’s guilty party: Chanel, whose Metiers d’Art show staged last week in Dallas showcased several models in Native American headdresses and clothes. According to New York magazine’s blog The Cut, the feathers sticking out of the models’ hair were imprinted with Chanel’s double Cs and they wore makeup in their cheeks to emulate Native American war paint.
