What’s Your Ideal Skirt Length?

Every few weeks, without fail, trend makers come out with a new style forecast, predicting what everyone will be wearing in the coming months. RIght now, The New York Times style section is calling for longer hems, citing dresses and skirts that skim ankles or end at the calf. But when you’re short, those longer lines don’t always work well. At five feet tall, I find that the perfect length for me is mid-knee–short enough that I look proportioned, but not so short that I feel like I’m dressing too young for my age (32). But everyone’s different, and what’s mini for you, might be maxi for someone else. So tell us: what’s your ideal skirt length? And what’s your favorite go-to skirt? Keep reading »

Style Stealer: Rachel Bilson’s Leather Look

Rachel Bilson is stupid hot. And she happens to look great in pretty much everything she wears. Most of the time, the combination of those two things would inspire a deep and unabiding jealousy, but Bilson just seems so cool and likable. We love this little easy, breezy ensemble she wore to a party at Lincoln Center recently, so we thought we’d try to recreate it for you. Check out our interpretation after the jump! Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I’m Stressed Out About Wrinkles

I’m 25, going on 26, and I am very proud to call myself a feminist. I think the standard of beauty in this country is bulls**t. I like to question authority and talk about the meaning of life and also I’m really stressed out about fine lines that are starting to show up around my eyes…

Sip Your Wine With Class

When it comes to drinking, we’re classy broads. That’s why we’d be more than psyched to sip a glass of Malbec out of Oenophilia Porto’s chic sippy wine goblets. The little feet make them harder to tip over and the straw looks like a tail! Sure, when drunk we may mistake our glass of vino for a headless rodent or a sperm, but at least we won’t be staining our teeth or smudging our lipstick in the process.

Bleed All Over This: Patricia Field Designs A Maxi Pad


“Can I ask you a question? Who designed your maxi pad?”

Patricia Field for Kotex.”

Fabulous, dah-ling!”

OK, just kidding. This is a conversation that will not actually happen. Patricia Field has leant her name to Kotex, but only to cases that carry feminine hygiene products in and this trippy maxi pad won’t actually be produced. (Besides, she’s a tampon fan anyway.)

Patricia will, however, mentor young designers who want to “ban the bland” and funkify a maxi pad for a Kotex contest. She told Fashionista, “I would put a design element to anything because I don’t want anything around me that’s ugly and boring. Period. Anything I can make beautiful I’ll make beautiful.” Pun, I’m assuming, not intended. [U By Kotex via Fashionista] Keep reading »

Vivienne Westwood Trashes NYC, Loves LA

“I don’t actually like New York … New York people are a bit stuck up and self important, and think that just the fact that they live in New York makes them better than anybody else. Sometimes there, you feel trapped by the concrete, and for me that means being trapped by the myth of Superman and American foreign policy and all these dreadful things that have done so much harm in the world. There’s just so much pressure there; it’s not nice.”

–Designer Vivienne Westwood speaks to W magazine about her decision to open her first stateside boutique in LA, rather than NYC. Now, Westwood has made some valid points about NYC (and its inhabitants), but I found some of her critiques to apply LA residents also, especially the part about self-importance. But I guess the beautiful Cali weather makes up for that. Of course, this isn’t really a battle of which city is better … I’d prefer LA to NYC right about now, too. [The Cut] Keep reading »
