Must Haves: 10 Black Summer Sundresses

As I write this, I am committing a moral transgression of sartorial infidelity: I’m cheating on my ever-faithful black-filled wardrobe today with a pink floral sundress, and I feel just terrible about it. It wasn’t until I left the house that the reality — and, with it, the guilt — set in. I’ll be spending…

Introducing The Larry David Dress

As I move through the world, I often feel like Larry David on the inside. But this dress, designed by voice actress/creative builder/seamstress Erin Pearce, allows you to wear your propensity for faux pas on the outside in the form of a well-tailored frock. Pretty, pretty, pretty pretty good. I’m calling it: the dress of…

Awesomely Affordable: 9 White Dresses Under $100

The other day, I did a post of celeb ladies wearing white, where I told y’all how I’d been indoctrinated to believe that you shouldn’t wear white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day. But then a couple readers mentioned that they thought that the no-white prohibition ended on Easter, not Memorial Day. I did…

Must Haves: 10 Drop-Waist Dresses

You might have noticed a recent trend of tons and tons of drop-waist dresses. Likely, designers wanted to tie their collections to “The Great Gatsby,” which was supposed to come out at the end of last year. The film still isn’t out, but collections featuring Gatsby-inspired clothes are all over. We love a drop waist…

Do Not Want: Zara’s Saggy Swimsuit Dress

This “pinafore dress” from Zara is reminding me of one of those old-timey bathing suits from the 1800s, which is reminding me of the episode of “Seinfeld” where Newman wears one of those bathing suits while yelling “Olly olly oxen free!” and cannonballing into a pool, which is a lovely memory, but not really a…

Work It: 10 Cute Dresses For Conservative Offices

It can be tough to find appropriate clothing for a conservative office environment, especially during spring and summer, when sleeves disappear and hemlines rise dramatically.

Style Stealer: Emma Roberts’ Red Lace Dress For Less Than $100

I fell instantly in love with this red lace dress Emma Roberts wore to a party in Beverly Hills. It’s fun, flattering, and since I’m going through a red period right now (not as menstrual as it sounds), I’m especially taken with the color. Emma’s dress is by Style Stalker and costs $189, which i…

Must Haves: 10 Cute & Casual Plus-Size Dresses

I have no idea why, but I’ve noticed that “casual” plus-size dresses are often, well, not that casual. And while I’m really glad designers are making gorgeous silk sheaths in larger sizes, what are curvy girls supposed to wear out to brunch? Or to the library? Or the farmers’ market? Or, like, mini golfing? To…

Must Haves: 10 Tip-Top Tulip Dresses

Nope, the name Tulip dress doesn’t refer to the pattern — it’s actually a reference to the shape of the skirt, which flares out and then comes back in at the hem, mimicking the shape of a tulip. This style is great for girls who are lacking in the hip department, and they provide a…

Must Haves: 10 Dresses & Shirts For Big-Breasted Ladies

As a small-boobed lady, I admit that I can sometimes be a bit ignorant about the difficulties and particularities of being a big-titted woman. I hardly ever wear bras even, because they are just not necessary. But for women who possess rather large boobies, finding fashion can be near impossible. Enter Saint Bustier, an online…
