Style Stealer: Jessica Hart Takes A Stylish City Walk With Puppy Floyd

Jessica Hart is best known in the modeling world for her trademark gap teeth, her laid-back Australian style, and oh, the notorious bar brawl that involved boyfriend Stavros Niachros getting a fist to the face and left friend Prince Pierre Casiraghi with a broken royal jaw. Fun times with models, royals, and Greek shipping heirs! All controversy aside, it’s fair to say that Hart is quite sartorially inclined — in fact, she recently launched a clothing line of her own with New York-based brand Pencey. The model from down under was spotted out and about in Manhattan yesterday taking her Yorkie, Floyd, for a stroll and naturally looked beyond cool while doing so. Temperatures haven’t dropped quite yet, so Jessica is taking advantage of the last days of summer in shorts, sandals, and a loose tee while winking at pre-fall style with leather shorts. This simple, versatile look can be worn well into the next season with the addition of black tights and a pair of boots — let’s steal it! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Watches $150 And Under For Keeping Time In Style

When it comes to watches, my priority is not being on time — in fact, I’ve worn my fair share of broken vintage versions just for the look of them. I can’t be alone, right? (Or am I?) Regardless, I covet the hell out of gorgeous, brutally priced timepieces (whether they’re functioning or not). Rolex? Bulgari? Sign me up. Unfortunately, I don’t have the kind of budget that allows for $30,000 watches. That diamond and sapphire-studded leopard-face Cartier? I can’t have it, even though I want it. Luckily, there’s a world of watches out there, and there are tons that look believably rich, without the rich price tag. Check out my 10 picks for sweet watches at prices that won’t make your heart stop ticking.

Makeup Bag: 8 Essential Products For Holding On To Summer All Year Long

I hate to admit it, but the calendar doesn’t lie: September is approaching, and fast. It seems like just yesterday we were gearing up for spring, which turned out to be practically nonexistent, before summer came on hot and heavy. I may be in the minority here, but I would take a gloriously sunny, breezy late-August or early-September day over the oppressive humidity of July. Don’t get me wrong — that doesn’t mean I’m not feeling the universal sadness that comes with the end of the summer, but I’m definitely looking forward to cooler, more jeans-appropriate weather. For those of you who take the end of the season just a little bit harder than I, I understand, and to make things a little easier for you I’ve rounded up a selection of products that will give you that summer lovin’ feeling all year long, or at least until the next time June rolls around.

Must Haves: 7 Tiny Makeup Bags For Your Everyday Essentials

Finding yourself out in public looking decidedly worse for the wear and without access to your trusted array of makeup is a total nightmare. It’s hard not to panic when, say, you’re encroaching on oil slick status en route to a spur-of-the-moment party, or you’ve spotted your ex across the Starbucks line and you don’t have so much as an errant lipstick on hand. Of course, lugging around your entire face-painting collection is impractical and virtually impossible, but it’s always important to have the essentials stashed away, you know, just in case. These seven makeup bags are petite enough to fit in a satchel, but have just enough room for the basics, not to mention the tiny coordinating treats you may just want to throw in, too …

Must Haves: 10 Unfussy White Tank Tops To Pair Perfectly With Everything

Despite my best efforts, I must own up to the fact that all I really want to wear is black jeans and loose white tank tops. You’ve witnessed my attempted (read: failed) Style Resolution and my awkwardly-posed photos in short floral skirts that just aren’t me. I’ve pretty much got a uniform, and instead of forcing myself into clothes outside of my comfort zone, isn’t there a way for me to keep things fresh while staying true to my grungy, casual roots? This is where these 10 not-so-plain white tank tops come in. Sure, they’re just… well, they’re just plain white tank tops, but their luxurious fabrics and soft, drapey fits make them the perfect layering piece (or centerpiece!) for any outfit. I’ll be pairing them with a statement necklace and a blazer or cardigan when temperatures drop.

retail therapy

I have seen a therapist off and on since my first panic attack at age 14. Talk therapy (and the delightful mood-soothing properties of 20 mg of Lexapro) are the reason I can put on pants and leave my house in the morning. With their help, I’ve learned how to self-soothe anger and disappointment, combat the negative self-talk that leads to depression, and create boundaries with my loved ones. My current therapist is this rad little old Italian lady who not only gets me but champions my very Jessica-ness. My life is infinitely more manageable for me under her care and as such I am the world’s biggest proponent of talk therapy. [Nuh-uh, I am! -- Editor]

But all of that doesn’t change a separate fact: sometimes what really makes me feel good is retail therapy. Keep reading »
