Yesterday, Julie and I wore the same dress to work. We both own Madewell’s Stucco Stripe Dress — mine is the “tobacco” color, while she has it in blue and white — but, as you can see, we style it in completely different ways. How to get both looks, after the jump! Keep reading »

Have you guys been watching “Sherlock,” the modern-day Sherlock Holmes series on the BBC? I just started watching last week and it is, like, shockingly awesome. (Sherlockingly awesome? No. Sorry. Nevermind.) The popularity of this show combined with the recent RDJ/Jude Law movie means general Sherlock hysteria has taken over the world, and I am INTO IT. Aesthetically, Sherlock Holmes is a little Steampunk, a little academic, and totally perfect for some winter style inspiration. Click through for shopping details…

As a lifelong fan of black and blue, I was delighted to see “Downton Abbey”‘s Elizabeth McGovern rocking the combination at Sunday’sGolden Globes. (My favorite colors on one of my favorite actresses from one of my favorite shows? Life dream status.) As you can see, the combination is simple and dramatic, and it looks just as good in real life as it does on the red carpet. Click through for some lovely black and blue pieces to work into your own wardrobe… Keep reading »
Michelle Williams made our Best Dressed List in a long-sleeved Jason Wu gown, simple makeup, and her signature pixie cut. Our favorite detail? That gorgeous retro headband. We rounded up some similar styles that will add a little sparkle to any outfit. Click through to check ‘em out! Keep reading »
Dianna Agron’s breathtakingly intricate red lace dress was one of my favorite looks at the Golden Globes. Surprisingly, it was also one of the most wearable trends (as opposed to, say, Angelina Jolie’s skintight white satin gown, which makes me break out in cellulite just thinking about it) to show up on the red carpet last night.
Layer a stretchy red lace top under a blazer. Rock a red lace skirt on a date or pair with a black cardigan for work. Still seem too risque? Try the trend in smaller doses like a cheeky bow-tie necklace or pretty underthings. Check out some awesome (and affordable!) red lace pieces after the jump… Keep reading »
A few years ago my friend Katelyn and I started our own New Year’s Eve tradition. We stay in, make dinner, drink wine, and spend the night reflecting on the last year and making up fun hippie rituals to usher in the new one (I hear this year’s festivities are going to include a ceramic chalice). Laid back NYE celebrations like mine might not require sequins or high heels, but they do require cute, comfortable basics, and slippers sturdy enough to pop out to the store for more wine if necessary.

New Year’s Eve is a great excuse to dress up. Yesterday we featured a disco ball-inspired outfit for those of us who like our NYE ensembles to be visible from space. Today we have a slightly more understated look, featuring dark lace, a dreamy fascinator headband, and fun flashes of gold. It’s perfect for classy soirees and cocktail parties–just add black tights for a boost of warmth. Click through for details!

I started watching “Justified” because my boyfriend has a huge crush on Timothy Olyphant, who plays the main character, Raylan Givens. By the end of the first episode I’d discovered that it’s humanly impossible to not have a crush on Timothy Olyphant, but I was also intrigued by another character: Raylan’s ex-wife, Winona. Not only does she have the best name ever (I would know), she’s smart, tough, complicated, and she’s got great style: her court reporter job calls for pencil skirts and pretty blouses in a muted palette. Click through to get this professional look for yourself!

Last weekend, I saw “The Artist,” a new French film set in the silent movie era, and shot as a silent movie would be. The film is charming and adorable — a must-see — and the clothes of the era are deftly highlighted. The gorgeous flapper dresses, cloche hats and curls the protagonist Peppy Miller wears made me long for the clothes of that era. While you can buy original 1920s and ’30s items for hundreds and even thousands of dollars, the less expensive bet is to go for reproductions of vintage pieces, or vintage-inspired works. We’ve found a handful for your perusal after the jump!
