Miley Cyrus x Marc Jacobs: Protect the Skin You’re In

Miley Cyrus turned a lot of heads this year at the MET Ball when she arrived in a racy mesh Marc Jacobs dress. Who knew that would be one of their tamer collaborations? Now the pop diva has stripped down entirely for the designer’s “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign. And she’s not the first celeb to have done it…

Full Skirts x Crop Tops: Short Shirts, Long Skirts

I love the look of full skirts worn with crop tops. It’s the perfect mix of retro and modern, of ladylike and sexy.

Celeb Trend: White Blazers

Summer isn’t just the time to break out the white jeans – it’s time to break out the white blazers, too! From purely pale creations to those with trim to leather accented jackets, there’s a style for every Snob. Rihanna made sure to follow her own advice and shine bright like a diamond by pining […]

Best Fall Hats: Heads Up!

One of my favorite things about the beginning of each new season is the hat shopping! Summer has some fun options, but fall is when the hat department really starts buzzing. From lacy berets to hybrid hats to silk newsboy caps, there’s no shortage of unique accessories. Here are some choices that’ll have you holding […]

Five Essential Summer Dresses: The Long and Short of It

Shop smart this summer. As much as we want to buy every cute dress we try on (and god knows there’s an unlimited supply of those), it’s best for your budget to remember that you need a little something of everything. Maxis like this printed Nanette Lepore ($226) are great for your average day. See […]

Summer Suits: Swimwear Fit for a Queen

My least favorite time of year? Swimsuit shopping season. Expectations are high and the use of fabric is low. Don’t feel bullied into a bikini. There’s a surprising number of flattering one-pieces out there and far fewer Snobs in them, so you’re sure to stand out. The best advice for suit shopping is to not […]

Patched Jackets: DIY or Buy?

I love the look of patched jackets. While Zara has a great ready-made khaki one (at Zara for $55.90), I wanted to make mine myself (or rather have my friend do it – I have a fear of irons!). Start with the base – if there’s an old jacket in your closet that you can […]

Trend Alert: The Cat Eye

There’s something about feline style that we love to imitate – cat eye sunglasses, eyeliner (the only way I do my makeup), and now ears. While the latter may be a passing fling, the cat eye trend has about nine lives, and the latest is happening right now. For borderline costume kitsch, Agent Provocateur’s studded […]
