As if I haven’t said it enough, I heart Mad Men and am on the edge of my seat for this Sunday’s season two premiere. I especially love foxy redheaded Queen Bee of the secretaries, Joan Holloway. Her approach to getting ahead at work may not be ours (but then again, we don’t have to contend with 1960′s sexism!), but her style is hot. Embracing her womanly curves, the character always looks chic and well put together, and getting the look yourself, while staying modern, is actually pretty easy. Check out three options we put together, based on Joan’s fashion from last season, after the jump. Keep reading »
It may be a case of life imitating art, or maybe its art imitating life — either way blonde beauty Blake Lively has a man and wardrobe sparking envy from women everywhere both on-screen in the mega hit Gossip Girl as well as off. With boyfriend Penn Bagdley always by her side, Blake has been looking more radiant, confident, and gorgeous than ever. And thanks to many public appearances and tons of leaked Gossip Girl images, we’ve been treated to a vast array of date-night outfit inspiration. Here are three of my favorites, after the jump….

When it comes to color, electric purple is often a shade that gets overlooked despite being equally, if not more, sexy and flattering than the usual suspects like black and red. To help launch Sensuous, a new fragrance from Estee Lauder, the brand’s longtime spokesmodel, the gorgeous Liz Hurley, donned a killer form-fitted plunging v-neck cocktail dress. But you don’t have to be a supermodel to rock this bold color. A few months ago I veered away from my usual color scheme comprised of dark and neutral shades and wore an electric purple dress to a fashion event. The fashion risk paid off and the gorgeous bartender/model — because at fashion events, these labels are one and the same — complimented my color choice (and no, he was not gay), saying he’s always drawn to girls who go for such a shade because it radiates confidence and sex appeal.
Based on this tale, and how utterly phenomenal Liz Hurley looked in her purple frock, I’d say you’re insane not to give it a go and blaze an electrifying trail in this fierce color. To help you get the look, I’ve rounded up 5 dresses covering all price ranges, Keep reading »
Normally Kirsten Dunst gets on my last nerve, but I am loving this outfit. Softing shorty-short-shorts with a Paul Bunyon-esque plaid shirt and low wedges is a smooth move. There are three version of her look after the jump, for every size bank account, but you can also add additional accessorites, like a white tote bag and the latest copy of Rolling Stone with Barack Obama on the cover. Oh, and a lemonade. Keep reading »
Summer time opens the door for a myriad of new date-night destinations, mainly, the daytime, outdoors date. This scenario can sometimes pose a bit of a dilemma, one that I actually grappled with last Sunday. On the one hand, you want to look cute and make a lasting impression. On the other, you don’t want to be that girl strolling around in an ensemble that should never see the light of day and has everyone wondering if you’re embarking on a notorious walk of shame. To help you find the perfect day-date ensemble, I’ve looked to the queen of laid back, summer-cool, effortlessly chic style, Lauren Conrad. Lauren stepped out at the Celebrity Carnival in a summer white Foley + Corinna dress that was totally day-time appropriate with a subdued, understated sexy vibe. Keep reading »
