Stylehiving: God Bless America!

Amidst the sea of size zeros flooding Hollywood, Ugly Betty star America Ferrera serves as a refreshing testament to the fact that you don’t need to be a stick to look amazing and pull off an array of styles. Whether she’s decked out in designer duds on the red carpet or keeping it fun and casual in a pair of jeans, America knows what she’s got and is finely in tune with how to show it off to perfection which is why she is this week’s date-night muse!

Fashion Slideshow: Inspired By Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel’s birthday was this week, so we thought it was only fitting to put together a slideshow of fashions inspired by this legend. She revolutionized women’s fashion in the 1920s by appropriating traditionally male fabrics and styles, which helped create women’s sportswear. Although she’s been dead since 1971, her influence continues each fashion season. Check out this biography of the legendary designer. Keep reading »

Crave: Devotte Shirley Sandals

If you aren’t already a devotee of Devotte (we’re oh-so-witty), you are sure to become one after seeing this pair of classy kicks. These white and gold t-strap sandals combine ruffles and studs for the perfect combo of girly detail and boldness. Plus, they’re a great alternative to the gold gladiator sandal craze (who wants to look like everyone else, anyhow?). [$338, Devotte.com] Keep reading »

Fashion Slideshow: Fall Frocks

For the last couple years, the dress has been taking each season by storm. And this fall season is no different. Designers are featuring sweater dresses in a myriad of incantations, making the sweater dress a staple piece to last through winter. Patterns, whether houndstooth, floral, or geometric are also hot for fall, and look for flourishes, like a hoodie or dropwaist, that update classic shapes. Keep reading »

Style On The Street: Transitioning Into Fall

How long has it been since it was cool enough for you to wear pants? Far too long, in our opinion. This hat-wearing gal, with her tank and skinny jeans, makes us yearn for sunny days that aren’t at all humid, when pants can be worn without sticking uncomfortably to the legs. Autumn rocks.

Crave: Custom Keds

Don’t you hate it when you buy a new shirt or dress that you absolutely love, and then you go to work and someone else has the exact same thing on? If you don’t have any sewing skills, it’s pretty much a guarantee that someone else is going to own what you own — unless you can afford couture, of course. The new Keds Studio, however, will at least ensure that very, very few people in the world have your sneakers since you can customize six different parts of the shoe with 25 color and pattern options. The only downside is that you might not come up with a cute combo — can you do better than us? [$60, Keds Studio on Zazzle] Keep reading »

They’re Bringing Kinky Back

From the runway to the pages of magazines, fashion is experiencing a resurgence of SM-inspired style. Calvin Klein handcuffs? Check. Whip-wielding models? You bet. Back in the 90s, Versace paved the way with bondage gear that borrowed heavily from the underground fetish scene. Now that kink has gone mainstream, more designers are finding their influences in the SM scene. Last year, Dolce & Gabbana brought the sexy back with crops and padlocked belts. Today, fetish is everywhere. Keep reading »

Poll: Does The Term “Wife Beater Tank-Top” Offend You?

A couple weeks ago we did a post on this awesome, but expensive tank-top/garter combo from Kiki De Montparnasse — because the tank was the kind with the ribbing, I used what I thought was the most common term for the tank itself. A wife beater. Last night, I got an email from a reader which read:

There is absolutely no reason for a website for ladies to be using “wife beater” as fun slang! Ladies in the know also call them boy beaters — I don’t appreciate that either but take note of the language you use and accept. It influences our culture!

Crave: Pearl & Ribbon Necklace

Pearls are timeless and ribbon is so girly. But for some reason, when you put the two together, they kind of a have a rock ‘n’ roll edge. This necklace from Wink would look amazing with a white wife beater tank, jeans, and heels. Kind of like Jackie O, gone bad. [$58, WinkNYC.com] Keep reading »

Crave: OPI’s Fall Nail Colors

Just as fashions change with the seasons, so do nail polish colors. Spring and summer are generally bright or pastel, while fall and winter are full of dark, rich colors. OPI’s fall/winter Couture Couleur La Collection de France follows these general guidelines with lots of plum, brown, and raspberry shades. The colors are lovely, but the punny names (Louvre Me Louvre Me Not, You Don’t Know Jacques!, Bastille My Heart, A Oui Bit Of Red) are the best part. [Just4Beauty.com] Keep reading »
