How To Pull Off Pants Under Dresses Without Looking Like A Schlumpy Hobo

With New York Fashion Week over, fall trends have started to make themselves abundantly clear. And while some — like minimalist makeup and easy hair — we can get on board with, others require a bit more skepticism. For example, runways from Rag & Bone to Richard Chai sent models marching with pants under their skirts and dresses. While Susannah and Amelia are fans of this style, I remain on the fence, fearful that it often results in a look that’s more schlumpy than chic. That said, if the awesome stylists at Rag & Bone taught me anything, it’s that pants under a dress don’t necessarily have tomake you look like a hobo layering up for the winter. We’ve got a few tips to keep you looking cool, not confused. Keep reading »

How To Seduce Someone (Or Simply Get A Date)

In honor of Valentine’s Day, there’s an article in today’s Daily Mail called “How to … Seduce a Man,” written by the founder of the popular lingerie boutique Coco de Mer. The advice, which is really applicable to either sex, made me think of this weekend’s “Dear Wendy” column in which a reader asked me why she can’t get a date.

5 Cheap Ways To Make Your House Look More Expensive

After a few weeks visiting my parents at their very grownup house in Chicago, returning to my own cute but tiny and not-nearly-as-nice apartment (left) in New York was a bit of a challenge.

But while some– antique French chairs, for example– remain out of my price range, others– like switching out our crappy kitchen knobs for cute ones– are easy and affordable. After the jump, a few tips on instantly improving the look of your apartment. Keep reading »

How To Get The Snooki “Pouf”

We’re obsessed with Snooki from MTV’s “Jersey Shore” for innumerable reasons, including her signature hair ‘do. Called “the pouf,” Snooki’s been rocking the look since she was 16 years old. Now she’s explaining how to get your very own (FYI, it takes her an hour and a half to do, but she isn’t the most low-maintenance girl going, so grain of salt): “When I get out of the shower and my hair is wet, I can scrunch it up and put the clip in and it stays forever, just because I have thick hair and it’s naturally straight. If people don’t have hair like mine, I suggest teasing it a lot and then just put hair spray in (product plug: she uses Paul Mitchell hair spray) and a clip. It should stay.” There you go, kids.
