Ever since Emma Watson showed up to the Golden Globes in January wearing Dior’s asymmetrical double pearl earrings, I’ve been dying to find a similar pair of front-back earrings. Basically, front-back earrings are when the back of the earring — what would normally be a boring post — is actually a decorative part of the earring. Many of them mimic the look of tunnel earrings without the stretched out piercing hole. Sometimes front-back earrings are even two pairs of earrings in one. When I went to Paris in May, I stumbled upon a little jewelry shop that was selling a pair similar to but decidedly more affordable than the Dior earrings, but the smaller pearls could also be worn separately as plain ol’ studs. So cool! Click through for 10 pairs of front-back earrings I’m totally loving…
Happy Bastille Day, aka French National Day, aka a day in which I do two things with even more gusto than usual — eat cheese and covet the effortless French style of such icons as Francoise Hardy, Clemence Poesy and Jean Seberg. If capturing that cool French way of dressing is your M.O., here are the 15 French fashion icon-approved items you need in order to do just that.
We all have a pair of trusty denim cutoffs that may or may not get washed regularly, but what about a semi-formal pair of shorts for date nights and birthday parties? I’ve rounded up seven pairs of summer shorts that make a stylish statement.
This weekend, Amelia and I are both attending weddings. As a frequent wedding guest, this particular wedding season has been a challenge. I have worn and re-worn every single dress in my closet. Last weekend, I offered Katie three dresses from my collection to borrow for a wedding she was attending, because she too, has more weddings than dinner plans this summer. At this point, I am on a mission to donate all of my old dresses and stock up on new ones at summer sales — here’s what I’ve found so far!
We have all been there. You put on a pair of white shorts, stretchy leggings, a jersey skirt or a chiffon dress and proudly strut out the door only to realize that in the light of day, your outfit is straight up see-through. Your ass walks down the street saying “GOOD DAY!” to everyone it passes. And it happens more often than any of us want to admit. But the thing is, this is totally avoidable. There are several types of full coverage “nude” or skin-colored seamless panty options out there — here’s where to find them.
After breaking my foot, I’ve had to rethink my summer shoe wardrobe. My closet consists of strappy heels I can’t walk in, T-strap flat sandals I wear every day, flip-flops, and gym sneakers. After breaking my foot, I need to avoid my heels, flip flops, and flimsy sandals for something with more support. At the moment, I am living in canvas sneakers, but I hope to trade them in for sandals. The problem? My doctor recommended I purchase “comfort sandals.”
Take a minute to Google “comfort sandals.” Are you seeing what I’m seeing, i.e. the ugliest selection of shoes for 90-year-old women? No disrespect to Blanche, Dorothy, Rose and Sophia, but I cringe at the idea of being a Golden Girl before 30. Where are the cute comfort sandals? After a week of searching, here is a comprehensive shopping guide to the cutest comfort sandals available. You’re welcome.
The best part of the split-back trend in blouses is that there’s such variety. You can find them in 14-inch long splits that expose the entire back to 5-inch long splits flashing just a little skin. You can wear them solo, or layer them with other tops to create your own look. Start clicking and get inspired to try this trend.
Summer is in full swing and I don’t know about you, but I pack for the beach like I pack for a mini vacation. A beach tote is essential, and must be large enough to carry my towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, snacks, beverage, brush, and a change of clothes, but adorable enough to carry around town. In addition, a big, can’t-miss-it beach towel is key. After a long walk on the beach, your unique towel is the only identifier of your spot — plus, don’t you want one you can wear like a sarong?
Metallic shoes match everything, so why limit yourself to just one pair? From sneakers and flip flops to heels and flats, we have a shoe for every outfit.
