Beauty Test Drive: Formula X’s Nail Colors In Thrilling & Sci-Fi

When it comes to spring nail color, I’m feeling a bit torn between my favorite poppy red and the pretty pastel shades that are big for the season.

Hi/Lo: Black & White Mules

If you are flirting with the idea of mules this spring, consider a black and white, color-blocked pair as a great way to modernize this ’90s trend. These Fendi patent leather mules are exquisite and the color and texture contrasts create a clean, mod-meets-futuristic look. Unfortunately, I am unwilling to spend $850 on any shoe,…
