Missoni Knitted Poncho: E for Effortless

Are ponchos back? They made their first sartorial appearance in Peru around 500 B.C. so to say the look has staying power would be an understatement. Regardless, if it’s a trend that will be making the rounds this upcoming season, I am more than ready to pull back on one of my all-time favorite styles.

Off the Shoulder

Off the Shoulder: To Bare or Not to Bare?

While I love a good bare shoulder, the newest crop of pieces border on vulgar. Some designers appear to be underestimating the power of the shoulder. Just a flash of skin is all you need to make your point.

Balmain Resort 2015 Collection: Goin’ Back to Cali

If there were ever a collection that seemed to be curated entirely for me, this is it. Narcissism aside, my deep affinity for Balmain stems not only from the brilliant interpretations Olivier Rousteing produces each season, but from the artisanal craft coming forth from each and every, single piece.

Frank & Eileen: Made in the USA

You probably already have plans this weekend that involve friends, fireworks, and a lot of delicious food. Though that’s certainly a great way to celebrate July 4th, how about adding on to that? By shopping! Yes, there really are few things more American than that, however, I’m talking about socially conscious shopping – supporting a clothing line that builds up our economy and provides jobs for Americans.

The Queen of the Wrap Dress has something new for us to wrap ourselves in – silk vests. These are perfect for summer nights when you want to keep out the chill or days when you just want to look hot!

Sheer Madness: The Spring Mesh-Up

We played with mesh inserts last winter, but now that the weather is on our side, I say we go full-on mesh! It’s an edgier take on the ladylike lace so prominent in spring, but we’re not talking delicate mesh. I’m craving the loose, fishnet-like kind – the type that requires strategic layering.

Denim on Denim: Snob or Slob?

Denim on denim at one point used to be a fashion faux-pas. The Canadian tuxedo seems to be becoming a celeb trend as the weather warms up…is it cutting-edge snob or still Slob? You decide.

Lululemon Designs Clothes That Take You From the Gym to the Bar

Lululemon has really up’d their fashion game. They have a launched a bunch of new items that would look just as appropriate at the gym as they would for a casual night out or for post-workout brunch. Some of them you could even get away with wearing to work to maximize the likelihood of squeezing a workout in.

Top 5 Instant-Boost Bustiers

Top 5 Instant-Boost Bustiers: Out of the Boudoir

Forget the tank, tee, tube, and even white button-down. Effortlessly feminine and perfectly sweet (yet not without spice), bustiers are my favorite summer-style tops. But finding a bag that won’t leave unsightly marks is quite a challenge at times. Forget your classic chain-strapped Chanel bags, unless you don’t mind welts on your bare shoulders…
