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… READ MORE »

Obviously, it’s perfectly fine to wear any color you want on your Valentine’s Day date — pink, yellow, black, blue, whatever! — but sometimes, it’s fun to take your fashion cues a bit more literally. Grab one of these sexy red dresses and watch your date’s jaw drop when you make your entrance… … READ MORE »

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 pockets… READ MORE »

Today in Nashville adventures, we tried to leave Winona’s living room and relocate to a cute, little coffee shop to blog. But alas, there were no seats available. So, like any good blogger would, we decided to ditch our laptops and go on a vintage shopping bonanza. Click through to see the gems we discovered,… READ MORE »

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. Crew Capri flip-flops each summer. But there’s long been a gaping hole in my wardrobe when it comes to work-appropriate flats. I recently… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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’s… READ MORE »

It’s still cold as hell, but with spring (allegedly) just around the corner, who wants to buy yet another winter dress? Luckily, Modcloth has a ton of cute transitional dresses to help you solve this dilemma. Wear these dresses now with tights, boots, and cardigans, and into spring and summer with sandals and sunglasses. Perfect. READ MORE »

Last week, I urged you to reconsider the humble bobby pin as a hair doodad that should be exposed instead of hidden. But sometimes any ol’ bobby pin won’t do — there are occasions when a fun, fancy or funny bobby pin is in order. Here are 13 special bobby pins (sold in packs, pairs, or individually)… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

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… READ MORE »

A close friend chose to wear a jumpsuit on her wedding day, and I cannot tell you how elegant she looked standing beside her husband. Not only was she radiant, she was comfortable in an outfit that reflected her personality. Many women do not feel comfortable in gowns, and that is entirely acceptable. With so many beautiful… READ MORE »

Y’all know how I feel about Madewell. It’s okay. It’s not like I go into one of their stores every week, or could hold a Madewell sample sale from my own closet, or rarely go a day without wearing something with a Madewell tag on it, or could pass for a Madewell model if I… READ MORE »

I know what you’re thinking: a crop top?! Really? Yes. I humbly ask you to consider the crop top sweater as a versatile wardrobe staple rather than a trendy mistake you’ll one day regret. With a high waisted, ladylike skirt, only a thing band of skin showing, the crop top sweater is understated sexy. Layered… READ MORE »

The neutral cardigan. Chances are you have one in your closet, but if you don’t, you should. This closet mainstay can be layered over basically everything, from casual weekend outfits to professional work getups. Buttoned or unbuttoned, belted or knotted at the waist, this cozy winter/fall staple will give any look just a little more polish. After… READ MORE »

One of my favorite online shops to peruse is Nasty Gal, an LA-based e-commerce site that’s supposedly planning to open a few retail stores in the near future. The site has tons of trendy pieces, party dresses and funky accessories, much of which is under $100. Sure, some stuff that’s maybe a little skanky for everyday, but… READ MORE »

On Tuesday, the high in New York City is going to be 12 degrees. I know some of you live in the midwest and that’s all normal and good for you, but for me, 12 degrees is CRAZY INSANE COLD. Like, that ain’t right. If I could, I would wear a snowsuit all day, but… READ MORE »
