Spring and summer bridesmaid dresses are easy: take one part flowy, one part flirty and one part pretty girly color and voila, wedding party magic (and bridesmaids who might possibly not lay a curse on your marriage for the hideous one-time-only dress you forced them to pay big bucks for). But winter bridesmaid dresses? That’s a little more tricky.
We pair wine with food, dessert, and music, so why not pair it with a fabulous dress? We tasted and shopped around to find three delicious pairings that will give you the perfect recipe for a night in or out.
When the weather outside turns frightful, our ensembles often do too. Take a look at the streets in winter and you’ll most likely see swarms of people dressed in blacks and greys.
Back in college, when the (two-week) span of Halloween was over, we’d retire our Halloween costumes to a box much like the kind we had when we were little. And that box was brought out again for the many theme parties that would litter the social calendar. But now? What’s a grown gal to do with all the extras? The… View Post
Color us confused—we’ve always been under the impression that neon and pastel were essentially two mutually exclusive types of color, and never the two shall meet. But for Spring of 2015, we’re presented with this particular fashion oxymoron—the neon pastel. So what exactly makes a neon pastel, or, conversely, a pastel neon? Is it brightly muted? Vividly soft? Vibrantly understated? Umm, all… View Post

Read on to discover five fall home finds that maintain their allure from… View Post
Give your image a saccharine makeover with a few solid pointers from everyone’s favorite pop star and Nickelodeon alumni, Ariana Grande. You may think you’re too old to rock her now-signature cat ear headbands, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go all-out Ariana on other fronts.
It’s October, and for many of us that means days that swing from, say, 45 degrees in the early morning to 75 degrees in the early afternoon—a range that challenges even the most, ahem, seasoned fashionista. We’re soooo ready for the richness and texture of fall, but the weather still has a bad case of the mood swings—and lets face… View Post
As Kohl’s recently taught us, faux fur isn’t always so faux—the budget retail giant was caught riding dirty, passing off jackets with “faux” fur trim that actually came from raccoon dogs (an Asian species that is more dog than raccoon, but most certainly not faux in any sense of the word). What what??? If we’re going faux, we’re talking REAL faux… View Post
While most ladies leave the lingerie for under their garments, one queen of the catwalk makes her own rules. This boss cemented the slip as fashion statement and turned a simple intimate into an iconic standard, making pre-Riri bad girl history along the way. We’re talking about the one and only, Kate Moss, of course. She may have started the revolution circa early ’90s, but… View Post
First things first—a little bridesmaids dress sizing primer: bridal fashion sizing is essentially stuck in 1952. Meaning that whatever size you wear in 2014? Yeah, you’ll wear at least 1-2 sizes larger than usual when it comes to bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses. Is this fair? Not really, but like death and taxes bridal wear ain’t fair—but our mantra is it’s… View Post
If you’ve never visited (or heard of) Nasty Gal, you might at this moment be questioning TBF’s standards for style and social decorum. The name, admittedly, is at first glance a bit off-putting, or at least a little naughty. But once you’ve arrived, you’ll see that Nasty Gal isn’t about , well, bein nah-stay, but being fah-bulous. And fierce. And just a… View Post
Step away from the stringy crop tops ladies, Summer is officially over. Rest easy though, designers like Michael Kors want to ease you into all things Autumn with fresh new ways to wear fringe that are far from their played-out festival appearances.

Let’s face it—in the 80s, we loved a good logo. I mean, what says impeccable style like a big fat corporate brand logo plastered across every region of your body? Enter Esprit—the brand that expressed it’s European chic and devil-may-care attitude through vivid colors, comfy silhouettes and it’s very own prominently featured clean and bold sans serif font.
Ouh-la-la, don’t you just want to walk onto the set of Woody Allen’s new film, Magic in the Moonlight? Mais oui! The scenery, the food and wine—and the look! How do they capture that certain, je ne sais quoi? With a timeless style inspired by French fashion, the kind of French fashion that has always been and will always be,… View Post
Consumerism drives our world, our days, heck—our minutes. We’re inundated with ads and pressure to keep up, be on trend, look a certain part and be the best we can be, which often means having more and more things and stuff. It’s hard to break up all the brain noise and eye candy enough to declutter what really matters sometimes…. View Post
As the days and nights get cooler, I tend to live in denial. While I’m ready to embrace fall fashion, I want to put off wearing a heavy winter jacket for as long as I can. A blazer on the other hand is not so much a jacket as it is a fashion statement that keeps you warm. I go… View Post
