This weekend I was wandering around one of my favorite stores when I spotted a sliver of blue plaid fabric peeking out from the crowded rack of dresses. Blue is my favorite color, and plaid is my favorite pattern, so I was immediately intrigued.

When I reached into the mass of hangers and… READ MORE »

We’re in love with gold, especially around the holidays ― its warm glow is universally flattering, and just a touch of the metallic shade can take a look from drab to party-ready. We know it’s a solid choice for jewelry, but when it comes to clothes and other accessories, it can be difficult to know… READ MORE »

Often when I’m looking for a celeb outfit to steal, the first place my eyes go is to the ground to get a good look at their footwear. It always seems like such a shame when the rest of their outfit doesn’t work from the ankles up, or the clothes are great but the shoes… READ MORE »

The beauty of an all-black outfit is that, no matter the pieces or the way you choose to wear them, you just can’t go wrong. It’s an easy way to look instantly pulled together without much thought or effort. Needless to say, I love a good monochromatic look, especially with just a touch of shine… READ MORE »

A casual gray sweatshirt is a can’t-be-without stalwart in any wardrobe, but we’re not talking the classic Champion men’s version anymore ? the old standby has been given a respectable high-end twist this season with softer, warmer textures and a more figure-flattering shape. Think of it as a sporty take on your favorite cashmere sweater:… READ MORE »

First thing’s first: I’m a Jew. I haven’t celebrated Christmas since I was a little kid and we still believed in Santa Claus. (I was eight when I discovered he wasn’t real, and ceremoniously told my younger brother and sister at the dinner table. My mom got so mad she squeezed ketchup all over my… READ MORE »

Clothing mannequins are weird whichever way you spin it ― they’re headless! They’re probably watching you! ― but they’re something of a necessary evil in retail to display how featured articles of clothing hang on, well, a human body. Unfortunately, this “human body” is usually a pretty terrible representation of not only how the clothing… READ MORE »

If the thought of going to the mall on Black Friday completely freaked you out, take heart. Today is the second biggest holiday shopping day of the year, but you can participate without even leaving the comfort of your own laptop. After the jump, tons of Cyber Monday deals. And if you’ve found one we… READ MORE »

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the world is Miranda Kerr’s runway. She’s just casually posing in the street, looking like she stepped straight out of the pages of Vogue! You know what they say — if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, and if you can’t hunt down the same exact… READ MORE »

Happy Black Friday everyone! Hope your Thanksgiving was fabulous and fattening and as devoid of family drama as possible. It is a straight up miracle that I was not up and out of bed this morning at 4 a.m., ready to raid the stores like the shopaholic that I am. But you know? I had… READ MORE »

Thanksgiving may be the day we stuff ourselves with more food than the typical American can handle — which is a crapload of grub by the way — but the real gluttony begins on Black Friday. If you’re one of those brave souls who plans on risking their lives in order to save a couple… READ MORE »

Just because we’d rather not expose ourselves to the dangers of the Black Friday in-store fray doesn’t mean we won’t be shopping the sales from the comforts of our couches ― which, by the way, is where you’ll be able to find us for the next several days. We’ve scoured the very corners of the… READ MORE »

We’re not really big fans of Black Friday (because we are slovenly and lazy and can’t be bothered to wake up that early), but if you must — make it easy on yourselves and dress for the occasion. Below, some sartorial guidelines for making the most of the craziest shopping day of the year. … READ MORE »

Black Friday is a uniquely American consumerist faux “holiday” that I will never understand. Do millions of people really want to endure screaming toddlers and hordes of teenagers at the mall just so they can buy an Old Navy fleece for 20 percent off? No, thanks.

But for the retail workers who have… READ MORE »

We’ve long been obsessed with leather (or faux-leather) pieces for fall and winter — there’s no other material in the world that has quite the same edgy, effortless downtown appeal. Plus, it’s warm! A pleated black leather skirt is the perfect versatile accoutrement for the season’s wardrobe. It can go cute and casual with a… READ MORE »

Celebrities have been hot for studded ankle boots since Chloé released their ridiculously popular “Susan” (right, on Kate Bosworth) in 2008, and with Isabel Marant’s updated, higher-heeled Americana (left, on Kate Moss) take on a similar pair, it’s only a matter of time before every starlet is sporting them on the street once again.

A good surplus or leather jacket is great in its own right, but the latest crop of outerwear this season is putting an unexpected twist on our old autumn standbys with mixed-media touches, like leather sleeves on a classic army jacket or twill topper. The result is a little ― okay, a lot ― cooler… READ MORE »

Oh, yes, that time of year is approaching again, when all you really want to do is lay in the bathtub all day and night. When the weather gets cold and the days get short (like, so short) there’s nothing better to ease your Seasonal Affective Disorder-addled mind than to peel off the wool tights… READ MORE »
