Must Haves: 10 Delightful Drawstring-Waist Dresses

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that the drawstring-waist dress is the most universally flattering of all the dresses in all the land. There's no body type that doesn't stand to benefit from a cinch, and most importantly, it skims over the issue of what I like to call "barbecue belly"…

Style Stealer: Doutzen Kroes’ Simple, Summery Look

What it is about models? They're always so friggin' well-dressed, regardless of where they are or what they're doing. Maybe this is a delusion, and the clothes aren't actually that great, they just look really good on them because they're models? That's probably it. With that said, don't be discouraged!

Must Haves: 10 Anything-But-Basic Summer Tees

OKAY, CONFESSION TIME. (God, I feel like I'm always confessing! So much latent guilt!) I love a good breezy tank top as much as the next human being with temperature receptors, but honestly, I don't necessarily feel like shaving my armpits every day in the summer.

Must Haves: 10 Black Summer Sundresses

As I write this, I am committing a moral transgression of sartorial infidelity: I'm cheating on my ever-faithful black-filled wardrobe today with a pink floral sundress, and I feel just terrible about it.

We've all been there: In the midst of a productive shopping bender, when you peek out the store window and see your guy sitting on the bench buried in Nordstrom bags, your purse and just about every other boyfriend at the mall that day. You start to feel a little guilty he's about to pull…

Mom Punishes Daughter For Bullying By Making Her Wear Thrift Store Clothes — And Yes, That’s A Problem

A step-mom in Utah wanted to punish her daughter for bullying other students and teach her a lesson. So far, so good.

Be My Boyfriend: The Beautiful Minds Behind Beloved Shirts

An incredible thing happened to me on Sunday night: I saw God for the very first time. Or, you know, this Oprah face sweatshirt, but it's the exact same thing. I texted Julie immediately to make her aware of my intentions to purchase two (one for each of us, naturally) so that we might…

11 Ways We’ve Completely Failed At Shopping, As Illustrated By GIFs

I know that winter is almost over, but I have one sad winter-related confession: I seriously messed up my coat game this season. I was in need of a new coat at the beginning of winter, but despite doing, like, 15 coat shopping guides, couldn't find one that I liked. So I waited. Then I…

Sorry, Mooches, You Ruined Fashion’s Night Out And Now It’s Over

So this is what they mean when they say "this is why we can't have nice things": Fashion's Night Out is dunzo, folks, and it's all your fault. No, I'm just kidding. Kind of. See, Americans have a way of taking a perfectly good, maybe even ingenious idea and blowing it up into a different…

"American Idol" runnerup and star of NBC's "Smash" Katharine McPhee has earned herself a well-deserved place as one to be watched style-wise.

Must Haves: 15 Floral Pieces You Can Wear Right Now

As someone who confines their wardrobe to the darker side of the spectrum (happily, might I add), I naturally shy away from solid brights or pastels. They clash and look kind of silly against my palette of black, grey, dark green, beige, and white, so I find that my monochromes are best brightened with a…
