Awesomely Affordable: 10 Things You Need For Spring From H&M

I'm gonna be honest, aside from certain key times of day, I pretty much refuse to walk inside an H&M. One of two things happen when I do: I walk in and almost immediately turn around and walk out because I can just tell by the air that staying any longer is going to give me a…

Style Muse: California Dreamin’

Well, after nearly 13 years in New York City, I've started to get a serious itch to move back to my home state of California. Maybe it's just this exhaustive winter, but I haven't been able to stop daydreaming about 75 degree February days spent at the beach, transcendent sunsets on the palm-tree specked horizon,…

Compassionate Fashion: Show Me Your MuMu

I came across the brand Show Me Your MuMu on the racks of the boutique where I work on weekends. Every time I'd check the tag of a fabulous new skirt or slouchy tunic, I kept finding the words, "SHOW ME YOUR MUMU" along with a phrase that made me really happy: "MADE IN THE GORGE USA!"…

13 Mature Fashion Icons (And How To Dress Like Them Now)

The other day, we were talking about mature women whose style we couldn't wait to emulate … once we turned 50. But then it hit us: why wait!? You don't to be in your golden years to pull off a fashion cape. You don't need to have flowing, grey locks to wear a colorful head…

10 Luxe Items You Need That Are Worth The Splurge

Alright, we all know the economy is rough right now, and tough times call for good bargains. Because let’s be real, ain’t nobody got time (or money) for a $250 blouse. I can’t even remember the last time I paid full price for anything, with the exception of food (bargain food freaks me out a…

Must Haves: Secret An Early Spring With Pretty Pastels

This winter has turned me into one of those people who complains about the weather, either aloud or on social media, on a daily basis. Hourly, even, on single digit temperature days. And I'm sick of it. Of the weather, yes (there goes today's complaint!), but also of being so disgruntled about the weather, because it's not…

Must Haves: 10 Bad Ass Bucket Bags

I really, really don't need to add another bag to my collection, but an exception may need to be made for a bucket purse. Carrying one, especially in a rich tan or burgundy color, with a crossbody strap, gives such solid Francoise Hardy vibes. Who doesn't want that?

13 Valentine’s Day Accessories You Can Wear All Year

The jury is still out on whether Valentine's Day is a the most romantic day of the year or bullshit consumerist faux-holiday meant. (I say it's both, plus a brilliant excuse to eat an entire box of Russell Stover chocolates in one day.) No matter how you celebrate February 14th, surely you can agree that…

On the somewhat rare occasion that I emerge from my life as a shut-in and go out to, you know, a bar or a party at night, I do everything in my power to bring as little as possible with me. In an ideal world, I would not carry a purse at all, but pocket…

Must Haves: 10 Pairs Of Pretty D’Orsay Flats

I have a closet full of heels and wedges, a couple pairs of workout and "fashion" sneakers, boots for the colder months, and I blow through at least three pairs of J.

Must Haves: 7 Pretty Popovers

The other night here in Los Angeles, where I am working for the week, I was gettin' it on with my West Coast booty call when he encountered a little problem removing my shirt. He was undoing the buttons on what appeared to be a button-up, when they stopped halfway down. Sitting up to get a better…

Must Haves: 20 Pairs Of Snow Boots To Conquer Any “Polar Vortex”-Like Situation

Attempting to cross the street in yesterday’s winter vortex was painful. The horizontal snowfall blinded eyes as unsteady feet slipped along the sidewalk.  I witnessed one too many close calls of women and men wearing the wrong shoes. What were these New Yorkers thinking? Even if you only experience heavy snow a few times a year, it'…

One Pair Of Boyfriend Jeans, Three Ways To Wear Them

I'm by no means suggesting that we abandon the skinny jean entirely, but wouldn't it be nice to give baggy boyfriend jeans a try? I spent the entire weekend wearing mine and it felt like a vacation. BF jeans have been growing in popularity over the last year or two, but I've still noticed a…

Golden Globes Style Stealer: Rashida Jones & Emma Watson’s Punky Pearl Earrings

I've always considered pearls to be in the same category as Wayne Newton, Werther's Originals and "I Love Lucy," i.e. "Things Grandmothers Love." But after last night's Golden Globe Awards, I have not been able to stop thinking about the pearl earrings Rashida Jones and Emma Watson wore. Rashida's earring is actually called an ear…
