Children love anything that is one-of-a-kind or with their names on it. But newsflash, so do adults, especially if they have uncommon names that manufacturers neglect to put on novelty items. Customized or personalized gifts are the best to give because they show you know the receiver rather well and the gift wasn’t a last… READ MORE »

Autumn could be the fastest season. Just yesterday it was Indian summer and today there’s Christmas music on the radio, trees with twinkling lights, and my mother is asking for my Christmas list. Wait, she’s actually been asking since like August…but the point is that the holidays are suddenly around the corner! Black Friday is… READ MORE »

Here’s the thing. I think I am an attractive girl. But I am NOT photogenic. Like, every picture of me that looks good is accompanied by 20 others where I look busted, no joke. And because I am a tad vain — it’s okay, I admit it — I am always trying to figure out… READ MORE »

I wouldn’t consider myself to be a Grade A snob, despite what some may think. I may carry an expensive bag or be sporting expensive shoes, but chances are that I’m wearing Forever 21 everywhere else. I prefer a diner sandwich to a fancy meal, have cut myself off from mani/pedis and learned to polish… READ MORE »

Spoiler alert: Santa doesn’t exist. Strangely, the inclusion in my stocking of practical items like toothpaste and lotion never tipped me off to this. Why would Santa give me boring things like that? I suppose he might have thought I wouldn’t enjoy my chocolate-covered raisins if I had cavities, but these thoughts never occurred to… READ MORE »

We love it when girls steal their boyfriends’ clothes (or shop in the men’s department), because there’s something subtly sexy about taking masculine clothes and putting them on a woman. This cozy organic cotton V-neck achieves that look with its screen-printed nod to a bow-tie that’s come undone. And you can feel good about buying… READ MORE »

This pretty green polished cotton skirt by Brooklyn-based designers Alice Wu and Moriah Carlson is made with love in New York. The scribbles on it remind us of the doodles we used to draw while ignoring our seventh-grade teacher’s lecture on gerunds — except Wu and Carlson are much better at doodling than we ever… READ MORE »

Gray jeans are a little classier than the normal blue ones. I must get myself a pair. I will not, however, wear them with a fuzzy gray vest, and nor should you. [Trender Bender]

There’s no better way to dress up an outfit when the weather turns cold than with tights. For a more exciting and sexy look, go with textured tights. These stunners from fancy pants hosiery peeps, Wolford, combine the perfect blend of fishnet and crochet knit. They may cost more than your average pair of stockings,… READ MORE »

The first photos of Alexander McQueen’s McQ Alexander McQueen for Target line surfaced today on WWD, and we are not impressed. The clothes in the two photos look more like they came from American Apparel than from one of the most noteworthy fashion designers of our time. Perhaps the other pieces in the collection will… READ MORE »

We’re pretty sure Fair Isle is going to usurp plaid as the preferred pattern of hipsters in cold climates. Like plaid, Fair Isle isn’t stylish at first sight, but it’s just so folksy and familiar-looking that it grows on you. And when you’re wearing a snowflake- or animal-patterned sweater, you’ll fit right in, whether you’re… READ MORE »

We’ve finally had to admit that it’s cold outside and our sweater coat will no longer keep us warm. We spent this weekend looking for the perfect coat. You know, a coat that is stylish and substantial enough to keep us toasty on blustery days, but not so thick that we’ll look like Frosty the… READ MORE »
