Flash Tattoos: How Long to Keep Flashing Your Tats

From the beaches to the streets of fashion week, flash tats have exploded since Beyoncé has been seen decorated with the metallic body adornments. How long is too long to keep the temporary tats on?

Altuzarra for Target

Altuzarra for Target: Bullseye

It’s another home run for Target collabs! This is Frugal dressing at its best. Python prints, swiss dot tops bedecked in pussy bows, thick belts to cinch in a womanly waist…Joseph Altuzarra’s are rich, sumptuous pieces – the kind you would expect to pay way more for than you will.

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection

Marc Jacobs Spring 2015 Collection: Women in Uniform

I knew I was in for a real treat when I walked into the Park Avenue Armory, the long-time site of Marc Jacobs shows, and surveyed the scene: glowing pink gravel, a Pepto-Bismol tornado-dropped pink house inspired by The Wizard of Oz (a film Marc happens to love), shocking pink, pink, pink!

Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2015 Collection

Calvin Klein Collection Spring 2015 Collection: The Simple Life

I’m going to make a grand statement, without a hint of hesitation: Minimalism has never looked so over-the-top, so plentiful, so generous, and well, so grand as it did bouncing off Calvin Klein’s most recent runway. As for anyone who ever said, “More is more,” you’ve never seen Calvin on a hot streak.

Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 Collection

Ralph Lauren Spring 2015 Collection: Utilitarian Euphoria

Think of all the things that come to mind when you reflect on Ralph Lauren: Buttery stretch suede pants, cinch-waist safari jackets, crisp tufts of ruffles, draped mock-turtlenecks, breezy coveralls, bejeweled statement necklaces and drop earrings, lean tunic gowns, layered tulle skirts, to name just a few.

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 3: Delpozo, Donna Karan, and Sophie Theallet

Modern but reminiscent of the past. Prim but not prissy. Crisp and clean but rich and wild. Oh, and brimming with unadulterated beauty. Delpozo is all of these things and more, and their breathtaking Spring ’15 collection brings all their trademarks of visual splendor and expert craftsmanship to new heights.

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 2

New York Fashion Week Roundup, Part 2: Anna Sui, Jeremy Scott, and Rodarte

I have loved Anna Sui since I was a kid in the ‘80s. At the time, there were no other Asians in fashion for me to look up to; naturally, I copied her signature bold red lipstick and her thick swipe of black eyeliner (still do!). This woman hasn’t stopped encouraging individuality and celebrity uniqueness since back then.

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2015 Collection

Oscar de la Renta Spring 2015 Collection: Garden Party Girl

I might have said this before (okay, I have most certainly said this before), but this is my favorite, my all-time favorite Oscar de la Renta collection! Fresh and young, so fun and so very, very sexy, how could it not be? Wait, did I just utter “sexy” and “Oscar de la Renta” in the same breath?
