When you’re trying to find clothing that’s made in the USA, it’s fairly easy to track down funky, one-of-a-kind items from indie designers and well-made investment (read: expensive) pieces from higher end labels. But what about the basics, the stuff you wear every single day — jeans, hoodies, t-shirts, tights, sneakers, pencil skirts, etc? Luckily for us, there are still some awesome companies producing these must-have clothing items right here in America. They can be a little tough to find, but that’s why I did the work for you! Click through to check out 10 everyday basics, all American-made, all great quality, all $100 or less…
I blew my wad on a rental car so I could drive to Pennsylvania with Lucca for the Thanksgiving holiday, which means I am banned — BANNED — from doing any shopping on this Cyber Monday, no matter how good the deals may be. But that doesn’t mean I cannot live vicariously through the rest of you. Here are 15 items I would purchase if I were shopping today, which I am not, I swear, I swear, I swear.
Yes, Olivia Munn, YES. This is how you style a striped, summer-y midi dress for cooler temps. I am loving how her stacked heel boots and bad ass green leather jacket give the look an edgy, tough vibe. Like, during summer with flip-flops, this dress is all, Oh hey I’m easy breezy, just chillin’ on the lanai with a glass of pinot grigio, but during winter, it’s all, Get to steppin’, I’ve got a hot toddy to drink, it’s cold out. Or something. Anyway, steal Olivia’s style, after the jump!

Something about New York City style that I’ve yet to fully embrace: people here wear a lot of black, especially in the colder months. Like, black from head to toe. Nothing chicer! I’ve heard it said. I actually love black and would wear it more often, if not for the fact that my dog Lucca is a big time shedder. And there’s nothing dog hair loves more than a black swath of fabric, lemme tell you. But for those of you not being held hostage by the fur, fur, fur everywhere, Kim Kardashian’s oh-so-NYC ensemble is the perfect example of how to rock black-on-black-on-black. And oh my god, I am loving her full-length coat. So glam. Get the details on how to steal her style after the jump! Keep reading »
Choosing a holiday dress your grandma will approve of is an art form. It can’t be too flashy or high fashion. It must be relatively modest, with feminine details like lace, floral prints, and peplums. Bonus points for retro styles that harken back to your granny’s youth (peter pan collars, full skirts, etc). Does this all seem overly complicated? It is! Which is why I’ve done the work for you and scouted out 10 holiday dresses that will have your famously snarky grandmother singing your praises (at least until she finds out you’re living with your boyfriend out of wedlock, you’re on your own with that one). Click through to check ‘em out!
It’s not always possible to buy a whole new wardrobe just for the holiday season, but of course you want to look fancy and festive at all the parties and events the next month has to offer. The solution? Accessories. This satin corset belt, for example. It’s not only gorgeous, it’s sexy and eye-catching enough to take a simple dress from “basic” to “holiday party ready.” You could also layer it over a blouse with slacks or even one of these fabulous jumpsuits. Bonus: it’s made to order in your exact waist size so it’s a great choice for any body type. [$30, Etsy]
Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is real and it’s a menace! Help beat the winter blues by bundling up in these colorful cold weather accessories. Seriously, it’s kind of difficult to be in a shitty mood with a hot pink pom-pom hat on.
Want to add a little lift to your gait but not lose your footing traversing through the rainy and snowy weather to come this winter? Wedge boots are the answer! You’ll get a few extra inches of height, but your feet will feel like they’re still walking on (mostly) flat, solid ground. From ankle to knee-high, fancy to rugged, here are a ton of wedgy, heh, options.
