If I had a big ol’ budget for clothes and the power to snap my fingers and commission an entire wardrobe from one designer, I would immediately call up Mara Hoffman, hand her a briefcase full of dollar bills, and ask for her to just give me everything from her spring/summer 2015 collection. I’ve always loved her clothes, but her latest runway show at New York Fashion Week was the embodiment of breezy California cool, with a color scheme and mixture of prints that nod to the state’s hodgepodge of landscapes, from dusty desert hues to explosive sunburst bodices. This collection has the best vibes — check out some of my favorite pieces in the gallery below!
I’m in the market for some form of personalized stationery, though I have yet to narrow down my search to just one design. What says “I’m an adult with a sense of common etiquette” more than a nice handwritten note on beautiful paper?

Here are 25 sets of stationery that will add a little extra spark to the next note you pop into your mailbox.

There’s nothing quite as depressing as a bathroom with mold coating the tub, hair carpeting the floor, and toothpaste caked onto the sink. Why do people let their bathrooms — arguably the room of your house you want most clean — turn into a big dump? (Pun totally intended.) You should take pride in a room you spend time in every day! I can’t make you sweep the hair linoleum, but I can encourage you to get organized and spruce up your loo with some color. Here are cute ways to cute-ify your bathroom, none of which will break the bank: Keep reading »
The state of New Jersey might have you believe that everything leopard print has already been invented, but you would be wrong. Uslu Airlines is not an airlines, but a cosmetics company and they have invented what appears, according to Refinery29, to be the first leopard print nail polish. The Internet has many a leopard print nail art tutorial, but this polish actually features leopard print-shaped pieces of glitter inside. The limited edition polish is only available at select retailers around the world, which is all the more reason for these spots to be covetable. [Refinery29]
“I think the fashion world needs to come to grips with reality. The reality is you have the whole country electronically connected. They’re educating the insides of their heads, as they should, and not [dressing] the outside with a fancy hat or a dress. Simple clothes, that’s key, and I think that’s what the fashion world should really think about…Look at the lines waiting to get into that Apple store on 5th Avenue! Do you see a line waiting to get into Bergdorfs or Saks? The future belongs to this generation and the high-tech world is it!”
Bill Cunningham, the legendary fashion photographer for the New York Times, teared up Wednesday night at New York Fashion Week creator Fern Mallis’ “Fashion Icons” series. He sat down with Mallis at New York’s 92Y to talk all things style, and the normally very private Cunningham kept his heart on his sleeve the whole night. After describing in emotional detail the Battle of Versailles in 1973, which he considers the best fashion show he’s ever seen, he added:
“That’s what American fashion does best! Not imitate, but the simplicity, the honesty of clothes — that’s what we’ve got to get back! That’s what made America great, and what made the fashion world great.”

Summer is far and away my favorite season and the arrival of September always puts me into a bit of a funk, because I know my days of wearing flip-flops and sundresses are coming to an end. But outfits like Reese Witherspoon’s remind me that fall fashion can be fun too. I’m not saying I’m looking forward to wearing sweaters, but I do love the look of a gauzy long-sleeved blouse with skinny jeans and booties, especially accessorized the way Reese has done with a long pendant necklace, a wide-brimmed fedora and major sunglasses. Winter can still blow me, but fall looks alright by me. Get the full look after the jump! Keep reading »
