How much do I love Stevie Nicks? This is a woman who literally shot cocaine up her butt and also sings like an angel. We loved her as part of Fleetwood Mac and we loved her solo. And we especially loved it when she was on “Oprah” not too long ago. Oprah, plagued by all the debaucherous things Stevie had done in the past, couldn’t even deal with asking her anything real, so she was all, “STEVIE! How do you KEEP! Your SKIN! Looking so FRESH!” In Oprah voice, you know.
We are so stoked that Fleetwood Mac is getting the band back together, especially since we were like, five years old the last time they released an album. Plus, Stevie has to die for style, though we’d hardly recommend you copy her look line for line. Come on, do you really want to look like a consumptive rat catcher lady dressed by a flock of whitedoves?
Instead, we suggest you update your Stevie-worshiping look with one of these fine frocks. Keep reading »
Black isn’t an obvious choice for a jersey summer dress, but if you’ve ever tried on a jersey dress, you know that black is by far the most forgiving color (I may never recover from the time I tried on a cream colored jersey dress while wearing a slightly-too-tight pair of underwear–the horror!). I love new mom Hilary Duff’s simple black dress, paired here with bold accessories, and totally want to recreate it. Get all the shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »
Essie’s Bikini So Teeny shade is pretty much the color of the summer. Not quite periwinkle, and not pastel either, Bikini So Teeny is summery, and bright and very very fresh. It’s also pretty much sold out, no matter where you go. So if you can’t get your paws on a bottle, you can still dress the shade, but choosing one of the nine Bikini So Teeny-ish-colored items we’ve found.
I never thought I’d have positive things to say about a romper. Maybe neutral things like ” I guess, for a romper, it’s not awful,” and definitely negative things like, “An adult onesie? God help us,” but never positive things. Then along came Selma Blair wearing this creamy silk romper with her jet black hair and red purse, looking comfortable and glamorous, and suddenly I’ve got nothing but genuine adoration for a romper. Well played, indeed. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]

I’m not a big fan of summer camp. Probably because the one time I went to summer camp every other camper in my cabin got violently ill, I had to deflect projectile vomit with my sleeping bag, the counselors vaguely accused me of poisoning everyone, and–unrelated but just as tragic–my favorite soccer shorts got swept down the river, never to be seen again. Whether your camp memories are positive, negative, or nonexistent, it’s easy to appreciate the laid back style of this summer tradition. Get the camp-y look for yourself, after the jump!

A swimsuit cover-up is a great addition to your beach or pool bag. Even if they don’t actually cover up that much of you, it’s nice to have a little something to throw on over your bikini to go grab a cool drink. Since your cover-up is guaranteed to get wet, sandy, and chlorinated, it’s best not to spend too much on it–let’s say $25, shall we? Here are 10 colorful cover-ups in a variety of styles and sizes that won’t break the bank. Click through to check ‘em out!
Tie-dye. Doesn’t it just conjure up hippies playing hacky sack and the pungent odor of Patchouli?

In fact, there’s lots of totally adult, respectable and cute ways to wear it. We promise!
After the jump, 10 tie-dye pieces you can say “peace” to.
