Must-Have Spanx: The Miracle Workers

In spite of what many women think, wearing Spanx is nothing to be ashamed of (there are even Spanx for men now). If 100-lb celebs use it for that extra bit of confidence on the red carpet, the rest of us should feel just as justified. You hear more and more women coming out about […]

Top 5 Surfer-Girl Staples: Beach Break

Are surfer girls not among the coolest kinds of chicks out there? A breezy, no-fuss attitude, naturally sun-highlighted locks, and they can ride a wave with the best of the boys: what’s not to envy?

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

Zimmerman’s Sweet Suits: I’m Not That Innocent

Sugar and spice and everything nice! That’s Zimmerman’s take on swimwear. Yet I consider them to be a brand brimming with edge.

Top 5 Athletic-Chic Pieces: Jump On It

There’s nothing better than feeling energetic and active. Even though you could never tear me away from my structured cocktail dresses and teeter-totter stilettos, I do love myself a good kickboxing class.

Top 5 Tie-Dyed Additions: Tie Me Up, Dye Me Down

There are some crafty activities from summer camp that never seem to vanish from our lives entirely, even if our days of bunk beds and color wars have long passed. Sure, I’ll always reserve a little soft spot in my heart for neon lanyard, but tie-dye is a motif that can actually translate to snob […]

Top 5 Lolita Looks: Retro Revival

Dolores Haze might have just been 12-years-old, but the reluctant “nymphet” has proven herself to be a style icon for decades. And while the topic of this lust story may be uncomfortable at best, there’s no denying the cultural influence. Penned in 1955, the star of one of the most controversial novels of all time […]
