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 »

Octopi Make Sexy Fashion, Says Chef

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. Trettl’s been dressing models in octopus halters and seaweed skirts as a part of an upcoming exhibition on food and fashion at Berlin’s Communications Museum. Trettl thinks octopus tentacles are “erotic and sexy” but I think they’re cold and slimy, and probably rather unpleasant to wear.

Are there any foods you think are particularly sexy or come-hither? [Vice Style]

It’s the least wonderful time of the year. My skin is dry year-round, but fall and winter are the worst of the worst (as in, before writing this post I went to the ladies’ room to slater on face cream for the second time today). I don’t just have to worry about keeping the skin on my face moisturized (but not greasy!) %u2014 it’s when I suffer chapped, flaky, sensitive skin and pretty much carry lotion on me 24/7 to cope.

Shopping Guide: 11 Cool Chapeaus

A recent study found that only 7 percent of women love their hair, yet we spend a ton of time grooming it. But wouldn’t life just be easier if we covered up with a hat on the bad hair days?

Here are 11 of our favorite, finger-snap-approved hats for bad hair days … or every day, really.

This gorgeous dress is just a taste of designer Mary Katrantzou’s forthcoming collection for TopShop. Not her first for the retailer, but by far her biggest, it will offer 14 pieces and hit stores in February 2012. Her work is characterized by a boldness of silhouettes and prints, and artful attention to the female form.  Katrantzou is a recipient of NEWGEN funding, a launchpad program from new designers (notable alumni include Christopher Kane), and has been rocking the industry since her debut show in Fall 2009. Her spring 2012 collection, alit by the theme ”man meets machine meets mother earth,” features delicious chiffon and a whirlwind of flowers, feathers and metallic tinted tulle. Sigh. Sign us up.

12 Festive Looks From Lauren Conrad’s Paper Crown Holiday Collection

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
