Random, unimportant, little-known factoid about me: on my list of not-that-good movies I can always watch is “Because I Said So,” starring Mandy Moore and Diane Keaton. It’s a rom-com about a mom who meddles in her single daughter’s love life. I’ve had this inexplicable crush on Mandy Moore for years, perhaps because I admire the topsy turvy sincerity of her music career (I mean, she released an album of retro covers after achieving pop stardom) and think she has pretty hair and I like the fact that she seemingly doesn’t really care about being famous. Also, she’s really stylish, but in a normal way, like there’s always something sligggghtly awkward about her, even though she has a general ease to her approach. Anyway, I really love this outfit. It’s one I would think to put together myself but my favorite street style stars are the people who make me look at my closet in a new way, and see combinations that didn’t occur to me before. Perhaps this outfit will do the same for you, or maybe you’ll be inclined to purchase the look-a-like pieces above, in which case, get the deets after the jump! Keep reading »
A significant amount of my brain space is being taken up with obsessing over winter coats. I know, really intellectual stuff. I am currently creating a puddle of drool on my laptop keyboard over Miranda Kerr’s gorgeous Rag & Bone coat. This bitch is $1,395, however, which is waaaaaaay too rich for my blood. Luckily, there’s a ton of similar jackets for way less currently available online. Here are nine grey and black options I love. Keep reading »
I’m really feeling the love for Jessica Biel today, probably because I watched her 1998 classic “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” (also starring Jonathan Taylor Thomas!!!) over the weekend. What a film! So while I’m aboard the Biel train, I figure I better congratulate her on the extraordinarily well-played look she wore the Museum of Modern Art’s annual Film Benefit. This white Chanel frock, if pretty, is unremarkable on its own, but the bronze shoulder chains and unexpected burgundy [Wait, are they burgundy or bronze? -- Amelia] pumps take it above and beyond. Turquoise eyeliner keeps the whole thing playful, and her hair, as always, is something I would like very much to pet. Well done!
It is colder than a witch’s tit in the northeast today. Winter coats have come out of the closet! Tight season is in effect! Static cling abounds! One person who’s not letting the frigid temps get her down is Miranda Kerr, who rocked a summer-y light wash denim skirt with sheer stockings in Manhattan today. Work this look for yourself with the pieces above! Deets after the jump… Keep reading »
I am completely obsessed with this season’s slouchy tweed coats, and this photo of Kate Bosworth wearing hers with a cobalt blue shift and pointy toe pumps convinced me that I need to go coat shopping after work today. Do you love this look too? Read on to steal Kate’s fabulous fall style! Keep reading »
One of my favorite fall looks is a breezy summer dress paired with black tights, as modeled here by the lovely Taylor Swift, whom I saw in concert a few weeks ago and was totally blown away by both her musical talent and the sheer perfection of her bangs. But anyway, I rounded up everything you’ll need to recreate Tay-Tay’s fabulous outfit — just add black tights (and a guitar case if you want to be really literal) and you’re good to go! Read on for shopping details… Keep reading »
