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 finding my goodies through a maze of mixed support.

To the annoyance of many women with big or small boobs whose bras are like a blankie of comfort, designers who create tops or dresses that are strapless, backless, or with cutout details are malicious.

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 13 pieces are better suited for a night at a rock show than hitting a sale at Lilly Pulitzer.

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! In honor of Shark Week, here are seven stylish items to take a bite out of…
