Designer Carrie Hammer began her “Role Models Not Runway Models” campaign earlier this year to feature and design for professional women who are underserved in the fashion world. In February, Hammer included a woman in a wheelchair in a runway show, not realizing at the time that her show was the first in history to do so. Karen Crespo, a 30-year-old who lost her limbs to bacterial meningitis, saw the show and contacted Hammer to thank her for including women with disabilities in her work.

When I think of gingham, I envision picnic blankets and pizza parlor tablecloths and 1950s’ school girls — I don’t think of ass-kicking lady bosses with six-figure salaries and about as many boytoys. But that is exactly what the gingham — accented with splashes of bright colors and island-perfect prints — at Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring/summer 2015 runway show at New York Fashion Week conveyed. Click through the gallery below for some of my favorite looks!
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.

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!

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]
