Dear Michael Kors,
When I go shopping, I tend to channel a raccoon—I’m instantly attracted to anything shiny, sparkly, or fishy.
This means that I have a closet full of sequined miniskirts and silver boleros and earrings shaped like salmon fillets.

We seriously never thought we’d use the words “cute” and “Canadian Tuxedo” in the same sentence, but Chanel managed to do just that. Behold: model Brad Koenig and his son strutting down the runway. Adorable! [Style] Keep reading »
