Unlikely Style Inspiration: Harry Styles’ Heart Print Shirt

I get style inspiration from a lot of unexpected places, from cookbooks to fabric stores to the especially lovely shade of pink my neighbor's head turns when he mows his lawn on hot afternoons. But even though I try to keep an open mind about the things that might inspire my wardrobe, I must admit…

Home Inspiration: Black And White Stripes

Bold black and white stripes are a huge fashion trend right now, but I think they look even better decorating your house than they do hanging in your closet. Whether you choose a throw pillow, ottoman, shower curtain, or cute kitchen accessories, these chic stripes add an edgy, graphic feel to any space. Mix and…

Style Inspiration: Michelle Obama’s Hearts And Stripes

This weekend, the Barack Obama Facebook page posted this picture of the first couple attending a Veteran's Day ceremony. My friend Molly immediately sent me the link along with the message, "What is Michelle wearing?! I want it!" I did some sleuthing (and by "sleuthing" I mean I went to the awesome website…

Style Inspiration: Kalinda From “The Good Wife”

One night during our weekend in Nashville, my boyfriend Nick and I staggered back to our hotel in the rain after eating a huge meal. We immediately collapsed on the bed, and Nick reached for the remote. Nick has a habit of watching the most random TV shows whenever we're staying in a…

Halloween Costume Inspiration: Jayne Mansfield

First there was Marilyn, and then there was Jayne. Busty, (bottle) blonde, and ribald, Mansfield became known as the "Working Man's Monroe" for both her physical likeness to Norma Jeane and her own brand of salacious, exaggeratedly sexual appeal. "Hollywood's smartest dumb blonde" had a genius IQ and was fluent in five languages, but she…

Style Inspiration: Nashville Right Now

I spent the weekend in Nashville, listening to bluegrass jam bands, googling "Where do Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman hang out?" and eating way more BBQ than any human being should consume in such a short time period. It was glorious. I loved the city, and was totally inspired by the fashion, which is such…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Summer Camp

I'm not a big fan of summer camp. Probably because the one time I went to summer camp every other camper in my cabin got violently ill, I had to deflect projectile vomit with my sleeping bag, the counselors vaguely accused me of poisoning everyone, and--unrelated but just as tragic--my favorite soccer shorts got swept…

Style Inspiration: Elizabeth Taylor

Elizabeth Taylor has long been on our style inspiration radar, but her memory is more alive than ever now what with that trainwreck Lindsay Lohan depicting her in a très highbrow Lifetime film. The horror! Elizabeth (who actually loathed being called Liz) was, unlike Lindsay, shambolic in the best way possible, the hottest me…

Mother’s Day Style Inspiration Board: Gillian Darmody

As far as mothers go, Gillian Darmody isn't the best, but she's certainly the most manipulative. This gangster moll was just a teenager when she was impregnated by the biggest political boss in the sordid snow-globe world of Prohibition-era Atlantic City. Fast forward twenty-five years and she's the matriarch responsible for Jimmy Darmody, who i…

Smack dab in the middle of wet, cold February might not seem like the ideal time for exploring the great outdoors, but if you're looking for a memorable Valentine's Day experience, throw on a coat and drag your sweetheart outside.

Halloween Inspiration Board: Allison Dubois From “The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” (Plus 4 Other Reality TV Stars)

The best moment ever on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" was Allison DuBois' (the woman behind the show "Medium") dinner party cameo last season. " In case you missed her appearance, she got trashed, puffed on an e-cigarette, and insulted pretty much everyone in the room. She taunted Kyle Richards with threats like "I…

Inspiration Board: Wearing A Maxi Dress For Fall

Look at Olivia Wilde trying to be all incognito in the photo above. It's okay, Liv, we're paying more attention to your early fall look than you, actually. Why are we so smitten with her ensemble, you might ask? Well for starters, we're suckers for stripe maxi dresses. But even more than that, we…

Stylish Subculture: Surfing

Few sports have a more instantly recognizable fashion sense than surfing. Between the board shorts, bright colors, flip flops, and beachy hair, it's pretty easy to spot a surfer--in or out of the water. Whether or not you have any intention of actually getting on a surfboard, the sport's laid back look is always i…

Summer is winding down now, but we're still loving bright colors. While the color-blocking trend got us to try wearing colors together, we still realize the impact of bold color with neutral cream. Just check out the photo of Molly Sims above. The tailoring of her orange-red blazer says, "I'm not to be…

Inspiration Board: Kelly Rowland’s Polished & Floral Look

We love the idea of shorts suits and wearing heels with shorts. So you know this polished and floral look Kelly Rowland wore while watching "X-Factor" auditions in Liverpool had our names written all over it. Kelly's large floral print shorts are Stella McCartney, but we found a less expensive option. Check it…
