Must Haves: 10 Cool Cuff Bracelets

Accessorizing isn’t really my strong suit — more items on my person just translates to more items to be lost in a freak incident. Well, not that freak, I lose things all the time. Cuff bracelets are great because they’re substantial, and because they can actually be adjusted to fit one’s (unsettlingly tiny, in my…

Awesomely Affordable: The 7 Best Cuff Earrings Under $20

Remember those minuscule stick-on earrings that you always confused with Candy Buttons? Well, ear cuffs are kind of the same idea, as in you can plop them on your hole-less ear and still look kind of badass.  These suckers are popping up all over the place, and for many there’s no piercing required.

Awesomely Affordable: 12 Wonderful Wallets Under $100

I need a new wallet. I know I need a new wallet because I never use the one I have, and instead randomly shove all my cash and credit cards into random crevices in my purse. You can imagine how awkward and cumbersome this can be, especially when you’re at a checkout counter and you’re…

Compassionate Fashion: 9 Gorgeous Made-In-New-York Dresses By Nanette Lepore

I’m well acquainted with designer Nanette Lepore because I’ve lusted after many of her gorgeous dresses while browsing the racks at my favorite department stores.

Must Haves: 10 Anything-But-Basic Summer Tees

OKAY, CONFESSION TIME. (God, I feel like I’m always confessing! So much latent guilt!)

I also personally (PERSONALLY! YOU DO YOU!) don’t like…

Must Haves: 10 Black Summer Sundresses

As I write this, I am committing a moral transgression of sartorial infidelity: I’m cheating on my ever-faithful black-filled wardrobe today with a pink floral sundress, and I feel just terrible about it. It wasn’t until I left the house that the reality — and, with it, the guilt — set in. I’ll be spending…

Awesomely Affordable: 10 Cool Crop Tops Under $50

If there’s one good thing that’s come out of the hipster movement, it’s the crop top. They have this effortlessly cool vibe about them, like somehow when we slip one on we’ll magically transform into Alexa Chung or Sienna Miller. But I’ll be the first to admit, crop tops are a tricky bunch. Unless you have a…

Megan’s Style Challenge: More Midi Skirts, Please

The Frisky’s promotions editor Megan is so cute — and she’s always rockin’ adorbs skirts. The other day, she came in wearing an ikat print skirt that she’d hand-altered because it was too long.

Compassionate Fashion: 9 Super Sustainable Wedding Dresses

What does it mean to have an eco-friendly wedding dress? That’s a good question, considering that by their very nature a dress that’s only worn once, twice tops, seems rather wasteful by environmental standards. There are a lot of ways around that. You can buy a previously owned or vintage dress; you can rent a…
