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 must–this is, after all, the city that pioneered the “put a bird on it” movement. Click through to get the details on this quintessential P-Town outfit… Keep reading »
Folks are entitled to their own opinions when it comes to what they find erotic and appealing. But we’ve got to vociferously disagree with Michelin-starred chef Roland Trettl, who thinks that octopi–yes, oct0pi–are sexy.

Here are 11 of our favorite, finger-snap-approved hats for bad hair days … or every day, really.
Lauren Conrad wears many hats, a few of which I’d prefer she take off. (As a writer, it chaps my hide that she gets a serial book deal.) But one area I think Lauren excels in, besides masterfully wearing braids, is fashion design. I’ve liked a lot of the thing she’s done for her low-priced line for Kohl’s, but it’s her mid-priced line Paper Crown that really makes my closet ache. She just unveiled Paper Crown’s Holiday Collection and I’m totally into the crushed neutral velvet, floral prints, and champagne-colored frocks. Click through to see the full collection, in store
