Steal the Look: Vanessa Hudgens x Céline and J Brand

Winter dressing can be a real downer, especially when you’re navigating the New York City sidewalks and temperatures are barely hitting the above-freezing mark. Enter Vanessa Hudgens for some mid-winter style inspiration. She was spotted in the city on Tuesday, after stopping by SiriusXM Studios, in a look that’s color-blocking perfection.

NET-A-PORTER Final Clearance: Extra 20% Off Sale Items!

There’s something so exciting about waiting to buy an item until it’s as discounted as it gets. Sure, this is not a game you can play with just any piece. Things could sell out at any time, and the retail season is long. Good news, though; now is finally the time to buy!

Top 3 Ladylike Bags: Street Style Sophistication

I’ve been loving the ladylike vibe of street style lately. My fingers are crossed that the trend will continue through the upcoming Fashion Month, but I’m sure some clown couture will sneak its way in, as always. Oh well! Until then, let’s revel in some sophistication.

'90s Looks on Current "It" Girls

’90s Looks on Current “It” Girls

The ’90s were a lot of fun, plain and simple. It was definitely an interesting decade: We had learned from the mistakes of the ‘80s but maintained enough of the residual carefree attitude to have a great time, especially when it came to dressing. Kelly and I wore high-waisted jeans with all of our tops – and in my case, bustiers, aka bras disguised as tops (and I use the word “disguise” loosely). Nineties style was relaxed yet high in edge and attitude, and it’s clear not much has changed now that the era has long passed; the trends are back in full effect, especially for today’s most in-demand “it” girls.
