Du Jour on QVC: Adventures in Home Shopping

Not every great home shopping find is going to have a big name attached—and we’re not so attached to big names, so it’s all good. This week, we clicked on QVC’s Du Jour fashions to find some very cute Spring-ready pieces for less (roll over slideshow for details; to shop, go to QVC and search […]

The Motorcycle Jacket: High Vs. Low

We’ve been fixated on spring as of late, but since it’s only February it’s not quite time for cantaloupe chiffon just yet. Actually, the motorcycle jacket maintains its momentum through spring, and while black is not the most spring-like of color choices, a lightweight black biker jacket is a great transition piece as winter wanes. […]

Best Foundation on a Budget: Reader Advice

Getting the perfect foundation is a tricky thing—the right finish, the right color. Oh, and we’d like to maintain moisture—but not too much. And make it last, while you’re at it. It’s a lot to pack into one little product. We have faith, however, that you can find a great foundation for less—Angela’s kind of […]

Iman’s Global Chic: Adventures in Home Shopping

Iman brings her global fashion sensibility to, yes, the Home Shopping Network. Our favorite way to go global this spring is with fab accessories, and Iman’s got it covered. Some are a little pricier than rifling through the bargain bin at, say, Claire’s, but they’re classic enough to make spending a tiny bit extra worth […]

To Buy or Not to Buy—a Home: Personal Finance

Life isn’t all about fashion (much to our ongoing dismay). You may aspire, for example, to someday own a fabulous home of your own—but before you can decide if this is the right time to shop for a house, you need to take a close look at your financial situation.  Ask yourself these questions and […]

The Shirt Dress: High Vs. Low

Another spring trend we’re starting to see on the radar is the shirt dress, which we’re happy about since it’s eminently wearable and can be had for less than your average house payment. But it seems you could still spend that much, were you so inclined. So here’s a test—we’ve selected two options. The cost […]

Best Shoes on a Budget: Reader Advice

So we know shoes is a veeery broad topic. But getting decent shoes—meaning that they look great and won’t cause you to get a bunion just by glancing in their general direction—on a budget isn’t easy. Sure, we love us some Payless, and Target is a sure bet, but we’d all like a little variety […]

We can hardly wait for some fashionable spring color (and this year there’ll be lots), so we decided to click around QVC for inspiration. Here are some early picks that […]
