Wearing a fabulous new coat is the best part about the weather getting colder. If you live in a climate that is freezing or moderately chilly most of the year, then your coat is what people will notice about you first. I know it’s kind of sad, but that chic outfit you have covered u…

Fashion Slideshow: Super Heroine-Inspired Fashion

It’s no surprise designers are looking to superheroes for inspiration this season. This summer saw the release of five superhero movies. Even if you don’t possess any supernatural powers, that doesn’t mean you can’t dress like a super-heroine. Put a kung-fu kick in your wardrobe by adding leather, latex, and killer heels.

Fashion Slideshow: Totally Wearable Jumpsuits

When I was in nursery school, my mom always dressed me in overalls because they were easy to take on and off. That is until she came home from a shopping trip, and I exclaimed, “Openwalls, openwalls, all the time openwalls. What do you think I a farmer?” Well now, I’m totally loving this trend.

Fashion Slideshow: Headbands Galore!

Headbands are an accessory often overlooked by grown woman. For sure, certain styles make their wearer look a little innocent, which isn’t always a bad thing.
