Must Haves: 9 Not-Too-Frilly Pastel Pieces

Pastel colors are sooooo dreamy — they’re all soft and washed-out and Easter egg-y, and feminine without the outright girlishness of, say, hot pink. They’re also perfect for spring… which I seriously hope is on its way. As a longtime all black-wearer, I’m always looking for ways to incorporate pale colors into my look without…

Must Haves: 10 Just-Perfect Jacquard Skirts

Jacquard refers to the process of creating intricately woven patterns in fabric. It doesn’t matter if you’re making flowers, squares or portraits of your favorite pet — it’s the process that makes something jacquard or not.

Must Haves: 7 Sexy Robes

The word “robe” immediately conjures images of lumpy, stained, novelty-print terry cloth garments. These kinds of robes are fine for lounging around the house when you have the flu, but what if you’re looking for a little more glamour in your loungewear? More Liza Minnelli in “Cabaret” than Gwyneth Paltrow in “Contagion”? We’ve got you…

Must Haves: Everything’s Coming Up Rose Print!

On this week’s episode of “Nashville,” Juliette Barnes wore an amazing metallic rose print blouse that I immediately used my TV wardrobe-stalking skills to track down, only to find it costs $250, which is, you know, about $150 more than I’d ever spend on a blouse. I didn’t mourn for too long though, because I found a bunch…

Must Haves: 12 Super Satchel Bags

Shopping Guide: 12 Colorful Heishi Bead Bracelets And Necklaces

Heishi beads are a traditionan African bead made from vulcanized rubber, which is why they’re often referred to as vulcanite beads. Although they come in more of a standard bead form, I’m particularly partial to these little disks. The vibrant colors are mega-cool and can serve to excite an otherwise kind of staid outfit. Plus,…

Must Haves: Rad Red Bras For Every Bust Size

A couple weeks ago, I bought a bright red lacy bra without giving it too much thought–it fit me and it was on sale, so why not? But I soon found out my impulse purchase comes with some delightful side effects: I feel like a total bombshell whenever I wear it, no matter what clothing…

Must Haves: 12 Super Sweet Pieces Of Snake Bead Jewelry

I hate snakes (why no legs!?), but I love snake beads — they’re the actual name of those cool interlocking beads you’ve been seeing on a lot of jewelry lately. The beads have a rather troubling history: The decorative glass beads were used between the 16 and 20th centuries as a type of currency. They…

According to the song from Annie, you’re never fully dressed without a smile. But I say, you’re never fully dressed until you’ve got something slinky and sexy on underneath.

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: 15 Floral Pieces You Can Wear Right Now

As someone who confines their wardrobe to the darker side of the spectrum (happily, might I add), I naturally shy away from solid brights or pastels. They clash and look kind of silly against my palette of black, grey, dark green, beige, and white, so I find that my monochromes are best brightened with a…

Must Haves: 10 Elegant Chain Necklaces

The other day, I listened to Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” on repeat for, like, seven hours. That song is so perfect. You know what other types of chains I enjoy? Necklaces!
