How Colorful Is Your Closet?

The vast majority of my clothes are black, which means my closet is almost as dark as a Stanley Kubrick film. Usually I’m okay with this arrangement. I prefer to bring color into my wardrobe with accessories–hot pink shoes, bright blue tights, gold costume jewelry–but there are times when I see someone rocking a bright green dress or a red skirt/yellow cardigan combo and I yearn for a more colorful wardrobe. The truth is, though, black clothing is my comfort zone. I bought a red dress a few weeks ago but have barely worn it because it’s so attention-grabbing.

So I was wondering: how colorful is your wardrobe? Do you build on black basics like I do, or maybe favor white instead? What color do you wear most often and why? [Tie-dye maxi dress, $49.50, Delia*s] Keep reading »

Beauty Test Drive: A 2-In-1 Product That Actually Works?

I’m always a little skeptical of 2-in-1 products; shampoos that are also conditioners rarely do either thing well — and leave hair feeling oily and tangled — so I didn’t have high hopes for Philip B’s lavender hair and body shampoo. But it turns out that even though it’s sodium lauryl sulfate- (SLS) free, the shampoo really lathers up nicely as both a body wash and a gentle shampoo. Why should you care if there’s SLS in your shampoos and body washes? SLS has been found to be an irritant to skin and has been known to cause problems for people with skin sensitivity, so it’s good to avoid it if you can. Plus, buying one product instead of two cuts down on environmental waste, and the pleasant and calming lavender scent doesn’t hurt, either. I might just have to learn to love the 2-in-1 thing a little more. [Philip B, $30] Keep reading »

Nesting: Bed Shopping Makes Me Want To Cry

Truth: I love me some shopping. But I’m the kinda girl who has always been on a Forever 21 budget. Thirty to fifty bucks here or there is typical; a few years ago I bought a $250 pair of high heels from J.Crew and I still feel guilty about it. When you decorate a new bedroom, though, there’s really no way around it. Unless you want to sleep on the $99 mattress they sell at IKEA — which I was totally prepared to do until I actually laid on it and was convinced it’s stuffed with straw — you’re going to have to plunk down some cash money.
