We’re really feeling printed shoes at the moment: They’re an easy way to make an outfit feel a little extra special. And they’re also a simple, foolproof way to take an outfit from totally blah to something awesome. If you’ve got a bunch of neutrals in your closet, maybe invest in a pair of printed…

Shopping Guide: Holiday Jewelry That Isn’t Tacky

One of the worst things I’ve ever had someone say to me is, “You look …  festive.” Around the holidays, it can be hard to determine where to draw the line between kitschy holiday accessories and what’s, well, more suited as a wreath than a bracelet. I’ve rounded up some jewelry for the holiday seaso…

Shopping Guide: Everyone Needs A Puffer Coat

Having grown up in NYC, where the winters can be as frigid as the summers are humid, I know the power of a puffer coat. These coats block out the wind and cold, but are lightweight. Fortunately, gone are the days when puffer coats make you look like the Michelin Man. Now, there are many

Awesomely Affordable: Oxford Shoes

I fell in love with oxford shoes in London, where you can’t throw a Cornish pasty down the street without hitting a pair (not that anyone was throwing Cornish pasties, but you get the idea). I love the vintage, masculine vibe they bring to every outfit, from dresses and tights to wool trousers and cardigans.

Awesome Affordable: ROMWE Fashion

I stumbled upon the gem of a shopping site, ROMWE, when I was reading one of my favorite style blogs, StylePantry. Owner and editor Folake Huntoon wore an amazing leopard-print blouse in one of her “My Style” posts, and I had to have it. Fortunately for me, Folake revealed that the shirt was available on ROMWE,…

Shopping Guide: 10 Super Sweaters

I still can’t get my mind off the brutal winter to come. We’ve had a few bone-chilling days already, and it’s only mid-November. Needless to say, it’s hard to stay warm and sexy in the wintertime. Bulking up is a must so as not to freeze, but who wants to leave the house looking like…

Shopping Guide: 10 Picks For Sexy Sleepwear

I’ve never worn a nightgown in my life. The word alone makes me cringe, and the suggestion that I invest in one even more so. I’ve always been under the impression that nightgowns are firmly in the “not sexy”camp. My mother wears nightgowns! What’s sexy about that? (Sorry, Mom.) But a T-shirt and boxers are…

Style Inspiration: Downton Abbey

My boyfriend and I are obsessed with “Downton Abbey.” Like, completely obsessed. We watched all the episodes in the span of a week and are currently rewatching them. We love the drama and the writing and the characters, but truthfully, I would probably still watch it with the sound turned off because the sets and…

Fake (The) It (Bag) Until You Make It

Every season, there are a few It Bags that get everyone drooling. Few are actually able to purchase the bag, but most just put it on a mental wish list. But we’ve discovered a way that anyone can have an It Bag without spending a few paychecks. We’ve found seven bags inspired by this season’s

Shopping Guide: Colorblocking Basics

Colorblocking is a huge trend right now, and for good reason: it’s the perfect antidote to dark winter days. Ready to try it yourself? All you need are two (or more) bright colored solids, worn together for visual impact. Cobalt jeans and a pink sweater, for example. Or a red dress with orange tights. Whether…

Shopping Guide: 12 Pairs Of Knee-High Boots

There are three reasons we reach for knee-high boots when the temperature dips. First, they help keep legs warm. Second, knee-high boots are like the universal shoe, going with pants, skirts, dresses, and shorts. And third, they’re hella chic and sophisticated! Here are 12 of our favorite pairs…

Shopping Guide: 10 Faux Fur Vests For Animal Lovers

Ah, faux-fur vests. They provide an in-yo-face punch, adding considerable girth, shag and fluff that encapsulate your figure in a BAMF (that’s Bad Ass Mother F**ker) way. Bonus points for their ability to make an outfit while still treading easily between day and night. It’s time to cast your iPhone’s Polaroid photo app aside and…

Shopping Guide: Happy Corduroy Appreciation Day!

Today is 11/11/11, which is Veteran’s Day (currently being commemorated in a parade walking past The Frisky offices!), but it’s also Corduroy Appreciation Day. Every year, Corduroy Appreciation Day coincides with 11/11, as the date’s verticality pleasantly resembles the fabric’s pattern. But as the epic 11/11/11 only falls once every 100 years, so in honor…

Shopping Guide: 11 Cool Chapeaus

A recent study found that only 7 percent of women love their hair, yet we spend a ton of time grooming it. But wouldn’t life just be easier if we covered up with a hat on the bad hair days? I’m not talking about a knit beanie or baseball cap. I mean a fabulous chapeau…
