Style Guide: Spring’s Coolest Jacket Trends

Winter is totally overstaying its welcome, but at some point soon, spring will actually arrive and it’ll be time to store away your heavy coats for at least the next six months. But crisp air, cool breezes and the occasional spring shower means that you can’t go completely bare-armed. Girl, you need a spring jacket,…

How To Spend All Those $50 Gift Cards

I know that they’re often considered impersonal, but I love to get gift cards for holidays and birthdays. It’s the thought that counts and if you know I would much rather pick out something I will love/use/wear rather than feign appreciation for your attempt to pick out something I will love/use/wear, gimme a gift card…

10 Fall Fashion Trends I Totally Support

Ahh, the changing seasons, the cooling temperatures, the falling leaves, the new excuses to shop for “must have” items for your closet. I have mixed feelings about fall fashion. On one hand, I love to have a good reason to blow some money on pretty things. On the other hand, I personally find fall fashio…

Shop The NYFW Trend: Everything’s Coming Up Palm Prints!

One of my favorite trends out of NYFW so far are the array of leafy palm-prints from designers like Tracy Reese and Yigal Azrouel. From full-on palm trees to more abstract, close-up fronds, palm prints are a sophisticated alternative to regular ol’ florals. And you don’t have to wait until spring to wear them &#8212…

Shop The NYFW Trend: 13 Ways To Get Your Gingham On

Gingham was a big component in Diane Von Furstenberg’s NYFW runway show this week, and while her designs won’t be available until spring 2015, there’s no reason why you can’t rock the hell out of some gingham now. Here are 13 pieces to start with……

One Pair Of Culottes, Three Ways To Wear Them

WAIT! I know what you’re thinking — that culottes are just baggy, long shorts that cannot possibly look good — but please hear me out. If you like full midi skirts, you should really consider trying culottes because they give you the same silhouette — dramatic volume with a tiny waist! — without the risk…

Shop The Trend: Tassels!

Weaving is my current obsession and I’m so excited because this weekend, I’m taking a workshop with THE It Girl of weaving right now, Maryanne Moodie. Her woven tapestries make such great use of color and texture, and I love how she ties in chunky tassels throughout each piece. Tassels are everywhere in fashion these…

Been There, Bra-ed That: The Trials Of Finding The Right Bra

I’m the kind of girl who wears a bra all the time.  I haven’t gone completely bra-less since 1993. My version of going bra-less is a bralet under a shelf bra, with my arms folded, propped upon a pillow as I watch Netflix Sunday mornings. Unless I bring my pair to the party, good luck…

Must Haves: 8 Pairs Of Gorgeous Fall Booties

There is something beautifully balanced about the cognac-colored Steve Madden booties spotted by commenter Maeve. It must be the cowboy boot toe with the solidly stacked heel that makes her heart go pitter-pat. I could forgo a few more days of summer if someone delivered these to my door. Maeve, the retailer you shared wa…

Fashion Math: Graphic Sweatshirts + Printed Skater Skirts + Bright Stilettos

Y’all know me. I can’t resist a graphic sweatshirt, I love a blindingly bright shoe, and, as one lame ex-BF once noted, I never met a print I didn’t like. Obviously, I needed to play a lil’ Fashion Math with Nina Dobrev’s cute ensemble combinging all three elements.

Shop The Trend: Not Your Grandmother’s Pearls

Coco Chanel aside, pearls have always struck me as prissy and old lady-ish, the kind of jewelry you’d wear with a twin set while watching your boring husband play golf at the snotty country club. In other words, not me at all. Pearls (both faux and real) are having a major comeback, but thankfully these…

Must Haves: Shark Week Style

It’s Shark Week, yippee! That’s right, if I could find a shark tank and dive in, I would. In fact, on my last trip to Denver, I was devastated to find out all the shark diving experiences had been booked. Have you ever seen a zebra shark? I just want to give him a hug!

Style Stealer: Reese Witherspoon’s Sophisticated Floral Print

Reese Witherspoon is one of those women who just knows how to put an outfit together. From jeans and a T-shirt, to a floral little number like this, Reese’s ability to accessorize her petite frame is always on point. I love how she plays off the understated neon details in this floral pattern by adding…

Must Haves: 10 Cool Denim Pencil Skirts

I recently scored an awesome button-front denim skirt at a sample sale, but after trying it on, realized that the A-line cut wasn’t quite as flattering as I’d hoped. So I took it to a tailor and had the bottom hem taken in and a slit cut up the back, transforming it into a curve-hugging…

Designer Spotlight: Be A Diva In Vintage-Inspired Nylon Stockings

Nylon stockings have an impressive history in the United States, dating back to 1939. Making a debut at the New York World’s Fair, affordable, durable, and sheer nylon stockings quickly gained popularity in the early 1940s before being rationed during WWII. Post-war “nylon riots” ensued when droves of stocking-deprived women descended upon the product’s retur…

One Pair Of Leopard Booties, Three Ways To Wear Them

Jessica is hot for this sweet pair of Nine West ankle boots ($139), but wasn’t sure how to wear them in a way that didn’t scream “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” I happen to think that leopard, while technically a “wild” print, actually functions as a neutral that can really match any color palette, so…

No doubt about it, the best thing about being an A-list star in the “Kim Kardashian’s Hollywood” game is the bountiful array of fabulous fashions stuffing my virtual closet. Dressing my girl up for the variety of work opportunities, events, photo shoots, dates and meetings almost makes up for the callous that’s developed on my…
