National Velvet: The Best of the Blacks

One of the strongest trends for Fall 2012 is velvet, and with so many designers embracing their dark sides, black velvet has stolen the show. I remember when velvet took over my wardrobe in the ‘90s, (including a green velvet bustier…yes, I went there). I don’t think I’ll be going back to lingerie territory, but […]

Michael Kors Resort 2013 Collection: She Sells Chic Down by the Seashore

The unstoppable Michael Kors and the season known as Resort go hand-in-hand. If you think about it, whether he’s doing safari-chic or pumped-up minimalist, Kors’ vibe is always a little cruise-inspired.
