Golden Globes Style Inspiration: Elizabeth McGovern’s Black And Blue

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.

Golden Globes Style Inspiration: Dianna Agron’s Red Lace

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…

New Year’s Eve Style Inspiration #3: The Cozy Night In

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…

Style Inspiration: Winona Hawkins From Justified

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…

Style Inspiration: “The Artist”‘s Peppy Miller

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…

Style Inspiration: Downton Abbey

My boyfriend and I are obsessed with "Downton Abbey." Like, completely obsessed. We watched all the episodes in the span of a week and are currently rewatching them. We love the drama and the writing and the characters, but truthfully, I would probably still watch it with the sound turned off because the sets and…

Style Inspiration: Portland Right Now

After surveying the signature styles of cities like Paris, Rome, and London, I came home to Portland, a place known more for forestry than fashion sense. But contrary to popular belief, there's more to Portland style than plaid flannel. People here favor casual dresses, cozy cardigans, pretty tights, and tough boots. Whimsical…

The other day I got a message from my friend Ariel, who works at an alternative preschool in Tuscon. She wanted to nominate an Unexpected Style Inspiration: her students. "At our school, the model is basically let kids do whatever they want, and they come up with fantastic outfits. Just today a little kid…

Alright, we've covered the current looks of London and Paris, now it's time to talk about Rome! This city is sexy, edgy, and colorful, and so is the fashion aesthetic. Women here love mixing masculine and feminine looks, trendy pieces with classics, and bright colors with more bright colors--then they jum…

5 Style Lessons I Learned At The Backstreet Boys Concert Last Friday

Last Friday, my childhood BFF Brittany and I reunited to take a road trip to the New Kids On The Block/Backstreet Boys concert in a city 150 miles north of ours. I say "road trip" but it was more of a religious pilgrimage to worship at the altar of AJ McLean's facial hair (if you're…

Style Inspiration: Get Ready For Emma Watson’s Jane Birkin-Themed Line

Emma Watson has already exercised her fashion design muscle—the "Harry Potter" star debuted her skills with a collection for the fair trade clothing company People Tree. It was this work that attracted designer Alberta Ferretti to Watson, and Ferretti has apparently now enlisted the young actress to create a line with her. Although…

Get the Look: Rachel Maddow

Fashion inspiration can come from unexpected sources: a poem, an old picture of your great aunt, maybe a certain song about short skirts and long jackets. I once created an outfit based solely on the exquisite color combination found in my iced caramel macchiato. Rachel Maddow has become one of these unexpected inspirations. I admire…

Do You Take Style Inspiration From Fashion Week Even If It’s The Wrong Season?

Fashion just can't live in the present, can it? You see this when bikinis hit the shelves in February, and when the stores start stocking chunky knits in 90-degree weather. And now runway fashion, which is always shown a season ahead, is more on your radar than ever thanks to Twitter and the blogosphere, which…

Get The Look: Berlin Chic

It's now been 20 years since the fall of the Berlin Wall. Since then, the city has emerged as a cultural tastemaker—call it a design town, if you will. So, of course, its residents tend to be well-dressed. But don't expect cookie-cutter outfits or pretty-girl get-ups. Berlin chic is about edgy sophistication, customization, and avant-garde…

Amidst the sea of size zeros flooding Hollywood, Ugly Betty star America Ferrera serves as a refreshing testament to the fact that you don't need to be a stick to look amazing and pull off an array of styles. Whether she's decked out in designer duds on the red carpet or keeping it fun and…
