We have had a satisfying life-long love affair with our jeans, but let’s face it – as far as current trends go, jeans are more cazh than fab (and yes, that’s how you abbreviate casual … I googled it). But that doesn’t mean your beloved denim has to be relegated to cleaning-the-basement-day status, it just means that to make your jeans more au courant… View Post
Oh designer shoes, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways—and then count the pennies in the bottom of our purse, because we’ll need every last one to afford you. Or do we?

She can be festival-bound, nostalgic and… View Post

The latest iterations of the look range from the risqué to the buttoned-up, but always include stylishly sexy details.

While some celebs, such as Cate Blanchett and the brave-as-ever Camilla Belle, opted for menswear in this winter weather, stars like Kourtney Kardashian and Reese Witherspoon went for a more feminine, yet equally smart look in skirts.

It should come as no surprise that the Queen of Couldn’t-Care-Less takes a laid-back approach to dressing. Luckily for Kristen Stewart, the easygoing style she’s so accustomed to fits right in with her persona, so much so, that it’s shocking to see her in anything else than a signature, simple uniform.
Blue eyeliner usually elicits two reactions: “Oh the eighties!” or “LOVE it, bring it on!” If you fall into the first category and even remember using blue eyeliner like there was no tomorrow in the eighties, perhaps storing it in your Kaboodle and putting it on at your locker mirror so mom didn’t know, maybe it’s time to reconsider. Blue… View Post

She may be a current queen of hip-hop, but that doesn’t stop this Fancy rapper from being a fan of the past. With a penchant for designer goods and vintage finds, this up-and-coming Aussie muse is also a purveyor of the retro. Channel your inner blonde bombshell then shop this list to score Amethyst Amelia Kelly‘s saucy Iggy Azalea style in a snap.
The “Hipster” moniker has taken on so many different stereotypes over the years, that it has been relegated back to it’s most simple form: a purveyor of hip culture. It’s no longer headbands and American Apparel hoodies circa 2009. It’s not looking like a Mumford & Sons video extra. It’s not even those who don ironic mustaches and tees.
The name alone is like something out of the fashion dark ages: “Petite Sophisticate.” Was there really a time that we—us girls of diminutive stature—said, “that’s what I need, a store that understands my need to be elevated from just petite to petite AND sophisticated”? Apparently so. Because at the time, Petite Sophisticate was the shiz-nit. But alas, Petite Sophisticate is… View Post
Consider these pencil skirt perks: they are long enough to keep you warm in winter and to cover your bare legs from touching the subway (ew) but they can also be as light and airy as a summer maxi dress.

How much are those jeans in the window? Um…what? I’m sorry, I must have misheard you (gulp), $275? We all know denim sticker shock, we have all coveted the pair of way-too-expensive jeans, and we’ve all spent more than we’ve wanted to on our own dream pair. But, what gives?
