Labor Day weekend is finally upon us. It will be the perfect opportunity to wear all your white clothes before it’s too late. Is anybody doing anything fun, by the way? Amelia tells me she will be swimming with dolphins. Yep, I’m still jealous. Click through to see our last outfits of summer.
A few years ago I bought my wardrobe for my first office job and was struggling with what constituted “business casual”. Among other missteps, I bought a rather expensive, taupe, suede blazer from Anne Taylor Loft. I thought it would be super versatile but in the four years I’ve had it I have yet to find a single outfit it looks right with, I think because of the color’s so light. I’m going through my wardrobe and either trying to sell or donate everything that doesn’t work, but it seems like a shame to sell this blazer for so much less than what I paid for it when I never even wore it once. Any ideas?–Leah
Ooh, taupe is a hard color. Why do they make things in taupe, anyway? It’s admirable that you’re trying to make this jacket work, it really is. My advice? Pair it with something of an even lighter color and then accent with darker accessories. Check out a few options after the jump! Keep reading »
In the past three years I’ve gone through as many iPhones. And when I got my latest phone, an iPhone 4 upgrade, I vowed I would hold on to it for as long as possible. In order to keep myself from destroying this phone beyond repair (my weakness seems to be water damage), I equipped it with a shiny new hardshell wooden case that’s added protective bulk to my phone. Let’s hope the water stays away this time! If you’ve got similar phone-to-water destruction problems, perhaps you’d like a new case, too? After the jump, check out nine cool case options to keep your phone in check.
Take a look at that picture. Clearly, I have a problem. I’m a products whore. I like bath products, okay? Of course I don’t use all of these every time I shower, but I like to have some variation, just in case one day I want to smell like a walking basket of ginger limes and another I want to smell like a tea shop. You know how it goes. Plus, everything in my shower has been personally vetted and tested–by me!–to ensure the utmost in quality. So without further ado, all the stuff in my shower, which I recommend you try… Keep reading »
We all have our limits when it comes to the height of our heels. I’m prone to wearing more extreme shoes, I suppose, because I’ve been short since forever. I stopped growing when I was 13–my mom blames it on me becoming vegetarian at that age–and in order to not seem too midget-y, I took to wearing heels early on. I’m only five feet tall without shoes on, so my feet have adapted to wearing unreasonably high heels over time–even though they often make my friends cringe. My highest pair of heels maxes out at around 5 inches and they’re perfectly comfortable, because I’ve learned that it’s often not the heel height that makes shoes suck, but the slope of the arch that creates the most pain. Too extreme an arch and your foot will constantly be sliding forward into the toe of your shoe. That’s why I love a shoe with a small platform on it–it helps soften the slope and make the shoe infinitely more wearable. But everybody’s different. I have friends who can’t bear to walk in anything but flats. Others that wouldn’t be caught dead without their stilettos on. So tell us: What’s your take on high heels? How high is too high and what’s just right for your feet? Keep reading »
