A Piece Of Advice For Kourtney Kardashian

When showing off your bra band, you should at least cut out the huge white tag. But you know what, Kourtney? Why don’t you just buy a bra made for low-back blouses and dresses instead? [NYC, 7/27/10] Keep reading »

The Top 40 Pop Culture Preppies

Despite our ardent attempts to stave off the return of “preppy” as a trend, it seems the popped collar is upon us and seersucker is having a full-on-moment. Again. Rather than continuing the noble fight to make pastel pants for men a thing of the past, we’re joining the multitudes and getting our prep on. The folks over at Flavorwire, too, have skeptically jumped on the bandwagon, rounding up the Top 40 pop culturally relevant preppies of all time. Carlton Banks, we salute you and your ever-present shoulder sweater! [Flavorwire] Keep reading »

Forever 21′s Fun House Mirrors Had The Wrong Effect On Me

I wasn’t all that shocked to learn that Forever 21 uses fun house-style mirrors and amber-colored lighting in the fitting rooms to make customers look “hot” — “hot” being skinny with flawless skin. (Though I do think it’s unfair to employ such trickery when the return policy sucks so badly.) I started thinking about the last time I was in Forever 21. Jessica dragged me kicking and screaming (not really) to the new store in Times Square. After an hour or so of hunting the four floors, I thought I had some really great finds. You know, stuff that was on-trend, fit my personal style, and didn’t scream Forever 21. I went into the dressing room thinking it was pretty dark … and smelly. I tried on a couple of dresses and some tops, but nothing quite worked. A skirt was a possibility, though. Now that I know about the mirrors, which stretch you taller so you appear thinner, I know the problem wasn’t the clothes. I’m only 5 feet, so I looked awkward and a little too bottom-heavy in a fun house mirror, which was slightly tilted at the top so I felt I was looking up at myself, and I could hardly see anything in the amber lighting. I said no to everything except the skirt, thinking I could always get cheap costume jewelry with my store credit if I had to return it. So instead of making me think I looked hot in the clothes, Forever 21′s fitting room tricks actually made me spend less than I had intended. Fail! [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

Will You Go Gray, Like Model Kristen McMenamy, Or Color Your Hair?

I know a woman who has tried to cover her gray hairs by coloring them, but at-home kits, no matter what the box says, really suck at covering gray hairs. So she’s tried, at different times, blending the gray hair with both light and dark hair. It hasn’t worked. But I say she should embrace her grays because she’s worked hard for them. I admire 46-year-old model Kristen McMenamy for choosing to color a chunk of her dark hair in order to have a head-full of silver, instead of the other way around. She looks gorgeous! McMenamy even made the August cover of Dazed & Confused and the pages of Vogue with her hair, showing that gray hair could be more than a trend for fall, but a statement for women about embracing your age. Will you go gray or color your hair? [Refinery 29, Vogue, DazedDigital.com] Keep reading »
