The Design Republik: Affordable, Limited-Edition Designs

When it comes to basics, I do a lot of my shopping at Zara, but there’s nothing worse than wearing something and then seeing someone else wearing that exact same piece – and this is a common problem with Zara.

A Cape for Every Body: Embracing the Cape Trend

Personally, I can’t get enough of the cape trend. I understand that for the reluctant fashionista, a design this bold can be quite daunting, but give it a try. The look has been up and down the runways this Fashion Month, so as you see more and more styles making their way onto the street…

We saw the slit skirt style going up and down the runways at NYFW, and the cutout in the back is equally on-trend.

NYFW Trend Report: Spring into Action!

Here we are again! Back in New York City and the energy is palpable, from the searing late-summer sun to the mad dash between Lincoln Center and Milk Studios (and everywhere in between). But it’s what’s going on inside that’s really stirring up our spirits…
