Girl, Bye: 13 T-Shirts That Say It All

I know what you're thinking: T-shirts with slogans or random phrases on them are juvenile, relics of your early college years that are best left in the past along with all those unframed posters and your dirty plastic bong.

Must Haves: 7 Pretty Popovers

The other night here in Los Angeles, where I am working for the week, I was gettin' it on with my West Coast booty call when he encountered a little problem removing my shirt. He was undoing the buttons on what appeared to be a button-up, when they stopped halfway down. Sitting up to get a better…

Must Haves: 10 Anything-But-Basic Summer Tees

OKAY, CONFESSION TIME. (God, I feel like I'm always confessing! So much latent guilt!) I love a good breezy tank top as much as the next human being with temperature receptors, but honestly, I don't necessarily feel like shaving my armpits every day in the summer. I also personally (PERSONALLY! YOU DO YOU!) don't like…

Classic Stripes With Some Verve

You can never have too many striped shirts: they dress up, they dress down, and they are, above all, classic. I'm loving Madewell's colorful take on a classic striped long-sleeve T, which I'm already joyfully matching in my head with colorful jeans already in my closet. How can you not be happy in a plum…

Must Haves: 10 Unfussy White Tank Tops To Pair Perfectly With Everything

Despite my best efforts, I must own up to the fact that all I really want to wear is black jeans and loose white tank tops. You've witnessed my attempted (read: failed) Style Resolution and my awkwardly-posed photos in short floral skirts that just aren't me. I've pretty much got a uniform, and instead of…

Worth The Splurge: Something Sparkly From Gryphon

Designers do different, very specific things well. Burberry, for example, knocks it out of the park with coats, yet charges almost $300 for an ill-fitting polo. When it comes to well-executed sparkles, Gryphon is queen. Yes, they sometimes overdo it -- as people who are into shiny clothes are wont to do -- but they…

Skip The Jacket & Opt For A Button-Down Like Sienna Miller

You might have thrown your coat in the closet as soon as the temperature went above 50 degrees, but it's still not exactly warm outside. We don't want you to get a cold, so if you absolutely refuse to wear a jacket, make like Sienna Miller and throw a button-down on top of whatever you're…

Crave: “Do You Like Me?” T-Shirt

Remember when you were in grade school and you totally had a crush on the cute boy in your class who had warts on his hands and so one day you passed him a note when the teacher wasn't looking which said, "Do you like me? Yes Or No (circle one)?" This t-shirt will remind…

Crave: The Post-Beach Cover-Up

A trip to the beach this weekend left me with some pretty nasty sunburns. Yes, I applied sunscreen. SPF 30, in fact. Apparently that wasn't enough, and now I need to figure out what I can wear that won't inflict more pain (and will distract my coworkers, who keep coming over to gawk at my…
