Forget the candy. Right now, oodles of Halloween decorations and costumes are in stores everywhere, reminding us that it’s time to do some serious Halloween party planning. Whether we’re hosting a mega bash or having a small “ghouls” night in (ha, I crack myself up), the right kind of Halloween home décor and accessories can create a bootiful party mood […]
I admit: much as I love my high heels and handbags, I also don’t mind trading them in for sneakers and time around a fire with friends (and wine. And marshmallows). Yes, I’m talking about camping. The problem? Going camping without cramping our style.
Chances are, ladies wearing high hemlines are more optimistic about the economy than their maxi dress wearing friends, and more likely to think the leg-baring style will be this fall’s trend. According to the 2013 BlogHer-Taubman Style Survey, 47% of women predicted above- the-knee hemlines to be this season’s look, reinforcing a longstanding theory that says hemlines rise and fall […]
Let’s face it: most of us let out a gym-worthy grunt when hoisting our heavy handbags, right? Now we know why; according to the 2013 style survey conducted jointly by BlogHer, Inc. and Taubman Centers (over 1,600 women, 18+ responded to style, trend and technology-related questions), one third of us are toting around six or more pounds of must-have goodness in our handbags.
Huge (and we mean HUGE) news for Phillip Lim fans: the 3.1 Phillip Lim collection for Target has just hit stores. That means staying super stylish with Lim’s animal prints, sparkle accents and sweater dresses while keeping our bank accounts looking great too.
New York Fashion Week always makes us giddy. We love eyeing up every detail right down to nail trends. This past year saw us through all kinds of looks including magnetized swirl effects, nail art and even fuzzy nails. But forward-thinking fashionistas need to know what’s in store for us come Spring/Summer 2014, right?
Much as I like summer, I looove fall. See, I like to wear fragrance. Problem is, summer = bees = not so good when I step out smelling like a rosebush with legs. Plus, layering the sweet mist on arms that already smell like SPF-30 doesn’t float my boat. That’s why I give autumn’s cooler temps a welcome bow.
When it comes to earrings, it seems the pierced kind are all we think about. After all, we assume most ladies have pierced ears (I’m guilty of it myself). But what about women who are oh-so-fashionable with clip-on earrings?
We’ve all heard the no white after Labor Day “rule,” to which I say “says who?” I’m not saying we should step out in head to toe white, but we don’t have to give up on the shade at the stroke of midnight either.
Confession: I still have, and use, those dinner plates from the ’70s. Those white ones with tiny olive daisies dotting the edge . . . yep, they’ve got a place at my table. Bold and beautiful plates they’re not, but what can I say? I inherited them when I got my first apartment and even though I’ve moved on in life, […]
