Must Haves: 10 Colorful Totes For Spring And Summer

I don’t know about you, but in spring, my purse doubles in size. I instantly need extra space for a cardigan, sunglasses, umbrella, scarf, bottle of water, a picnic blanket, a spare pair of shoes and other necessities for spring adventures. Unlike winter, every outing is a gamble. Will it be colder, warmer, windier, sunnier,…

Must Haves: 11 Pairs Of Fun & Funky Overalls For Under $100

Overalls are back, bitches! No more living nostalgically through reruns of "Blossom" and "Full House," because this spring, nothing says chic like a spruced up pair of dungarees. While classic, rolled-up overalls are popping up all over the place, it's the ones with an edge that have been catching my eye. Floral print! Leather! Studded pockets!

Fashion Math: Lacey Blouses + Soft Printed Pants

Olivia Munn, above, is wearing a variation on what I call pajama fashion -- a lacy blouse that looks like it could be the top half of a silky nightgown paired with slouchy silk printed pants not unlike those your mom or dad wore to bed. Pajama fashion is super comfy, but if you get…

Fashion Math: Denim Vests/Jackets + Printed Maxi Dresses

Say hello to your summer uniform, as worn by Dianna Agron during spring in Los Angeles. So jealous of your weather, LA! Anyway, a printed maxi dress topped with a fitted denim jacket or vest is hardly a new fashion equation, but even basic arithmetic needs to be revisited from time to time. Here are…

Hi/Lo: Vintage-Inspired Totes For Spring

Cute and feminine with a vintage feel? I’m in. Kate Spade's Vita Riva Francis bag is super cute but a little out of my price range. I'm not gonna spend $398 on a bag to carry sunblock, beach towels, and beers! Mod Cloth’s When In Venice Beach Bag provides the same feel for a fourth…

Hi/Lo: Island Photo Clutch

Is it summer yet? I'm dreaming of sand, sun, and saltwater. When I saw this Cynthia Vincent clutch, my heart screamed "need!" but my brain said "no way!" I have never purchased a clutch for $295 and have no intention of starting now. If you can’t wait to go to the beach, or wear the…

Style Guide: 5 Wedding Dress Trends

As a child, whenever I closed my eyes every wedding dress looked the same: a strapless ball gown, with a long white veil. (Maybe that was the dress my Barbie came with?)  In reality, wedding dresses (or jumpsuits) come in many shapes, sizes, and fabrics, the unique beauty of each being in the details. I wa…

Hi/Lo: Varsity Sweater

See that varsity tennis sweater on the left? It's by Rag & Bone (or is it "rag & bone"? I dunno) and it is THE IT SWEATER of the season. Various fashion magazines told me so and then I've seen it on at least five celebrities in the last few weeks. But it is so expensive.

Fashion Math: Stripes + Floral Prints

Today's Fashion Math -- in which two fabulous elements are added together to form one super stylish outfit -- is inspired by ... myself! I know, how egotistical. But I liked my outfit today and think it demonstrates just how necessary it is to break certain old fashioned style rules about combining prints. My blouse is a…

Increase Your Confidence With These Style And Body Language Tips

In a recent study conducted by Marshalls, 75 percent of the 1000 women surveyed admitted to having said "No" to various activities and invitations due to a lack of confidence. Are you shocked? I’m not. I’ve been there. Raise your hand if you're among the 55 percent of women who've declined party invitations or the…

Fashion Math: Sweatshirts + Midi Skirts

Leave it to Chloe Grace Moretz to combine two of my favorite current trends -- a fitted sweatshirt and a full midi skirt -- into one fabulous outfit. Mixing a sporty top with a girly bottom keeps the look from being too casual or too precious, and has that much ballyhooed "effortless" vibe. Naturally, I went buck…

Must Haves: 25 Low Block-Heel Sandals

Let me introduce you to my new best friend, the low block-heel sandal. She loves to take long walks in the park, window shop for hours at a time, flirt at happy hour, and go dancing at da club, but is still all business at the office. Although she only stands about two-inches tall, she…

There I was, just a few moments ago, sitting at a coffee shop in West Hollywood, sippin' on a Vietnamese iced coffee and feeling pretty AFB about life, when a random woman approached me and complimented me on my dress. "It looks so lovely on you," she said kindly. "Why thank you!" I replied. "The…

Shop The Trend: Fruit Prints!

I am so pumped that spring weather has arrived! Shorter hemlines, lighter fabrics and happier prints, GET AT ME. Speaking of the latter, one of my favorite trends for spring is fruit. Lemons, limes, strawberries, watermelon and pineapple abound in many of the textiles being used for everything from dresses and skirts to crop tops and rompers.
