“I’m a Virgo and the sign is a virgin. So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it.”
– Nicole Richie, a mother of two, is definitely not a virgin. Sadly, I know someone else, who isn’t a Virgo, who also has “virgin” tattooed on her. Do you have a tattoo that you regret? [Starpulse.com] Keep reading »
It’s quite easy to get into a watch rut. Most people aren’t expected to have seven timepieces for seven days. But why not have as much fun with your watch as you do with other jewelry and accessories? The Liz Claiborne Slim Black Watch is a mod take on a classic silhouette.

There’s just something about inches of exposed flesh between a sock and a miniskirt that screams Catholic school girl gone wrong. I will say that I like the idea of layering over-the-knee socks over a pair of tights for a cozy knit legs look. Really, this is the only practical way to wear thigh-highs or over-the-knee socks because no one enjoys a cold kitty cat … if you feel what I’m saying. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
Wearing white after Labor Day these days is as acceptable as wearing black to a wedding or skipping pantyhose at the office. It’s an old-school fashion rule that has not only been broken but practically rewritten.
“Not only can you wear white after Labor Day, you should wear white all year long, especially if you live in a seasonless climate,” Charla Krupp, fashion expert and author of How to Never Look Fat Again, tells StyleList. “White can be stunning in a dress, jacket, sweater or coat.”
