Let me tell you a secret: sometimes, when I am feeling supremely lazy, I will wear a maxi dress all day long and then sleep in it that night. I mean, a maxi dress is essentially just a nice-ish looking nightgown, so can you blame me? Well, one maxi dress I won’t be wearing to… READ MORE »
Consider two simple but sweet words when you’re deciding on your personal summer style: “comfy” and “cute.” Come on now, ladies, do you really want to spend another hot (make that really hot) summer trying to squeeze into a rib-crushing top or balancing atop sky-high heels? If you’re looking for a new romantic interest, men… READ MORE »
I sweat like a beast when it’s hot out and I’m running around. There. I said it. I’m so not that girl who somehow looks perfectly composed as I enter the cool air-conditioned office from the punishing 90-degree heat outside. Sorry. But my personal heat-induced nastiness has given me time and incentive to find ways… READ MORE »
It is so god-awful hot these days that the short trip from home to the office generally leaves us sweat-drenched (no, not “dewy”). We used to delude ourselves into thinking that we’d make it to the office with a full face of makeup intact. As it turns out, that assumption was full on crazy. So… READ MORE »
As the humidity and temperature spike, so do our chances of heat-induced fashion problems.

These jelly (see,… READ MORE »
It has been raining on and off in New York for weeks and we are sick of it. It’s easy to prepare for cold weather rain: wellies, a water repellent jacket, massive black umbrella, and, for the really dedicated, a hat. But the task gets considerably more difficult when the pelting rain is combined with… READ MORE »
You don’t need a $400 Gucci beach towel for the summer.
You don’t need a $315 peace sign bikini ’cause all the goodwill in the world ain’t gonna pay for that thing.
And you definitely don’t need another pair of khaki short-shorts or that same cotton dress in one more color. READ MORE »
We’ve spent years eschewing jelly sandals, turning our backs on the sheer plastic beauties we grew up with. We’re too old for those, we thought, gazing wistfully, but moving on to more grown up footwear. Well, screw it, jellies are back with a vengeance, and I’m leaving leather and other perhaps more legitimate footwear material… READ MORE »

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.
