Among your cadre of summer-to-fall jacket options, consider the cropped trench. It's cute, versatile and can be worn as both outerwear and -- if you're feeling particularly daring -- as a blazer.

Shopping Guide: 9 Pretty & Protective iPhone Cases

In the past three years I've gone through as many iPhones. And when I got my latest phone, an iPhone 4 upgrade, I vowed I would hold on to it for as long as possible. In order to keep myself from destroying this phone beyond repair (my weakness seems to be water damage), I equipped…

Shopping Guide: Rad Rope Detailing

The other day, I saw a great shirt with nautically-themed rope detail on it, and almost purchased it, but balked at the last minute.
