It’s that time of year again. That time when you’re watching Love Actually one too many times (No judgment), and Mariah’s monopolizing your Spotify playlist with what she wants for Christmas. We’re nestled into November, and the holidays are just around the corner.
Minimalism is the rage of boutique hotels and architects, of interior designers and Swedish furniture, but you don’t hear much when it comes to minimalist wardrobe. But you should. Less is more and that’s a hard concept for us to digest sometimes when we’re inundated with ads that tell us to buy because we deserve it (hey we do, don’t… View Post
Lady Gaga may have set her eyes on performing in space, but for this week at least, she will be entertaining her New Yorker earthlings. H&M has selected the pop star to lead the ribbon cutting and lighting of the H&M logo on the top of 4 Times Square to kick off the opening of H&M’s newest store on Thursday,… View Post
Sure, we all dream of the time and money to jet set for a weekend getaway. But why wait when you can do it at home? Here is my favorite way to have a weekend at home that kicks off Monday with the “I just got back” feeling of relaxation and happiness.
Daylight savings in the fall – it’s a love-hate relationship. While it’s really hard to hate that extra hour of sleep, as I get older I’ve started to notice that it takes me longer to adapt. Losing light so that it’s dark by 5pm is really hard on the social life! So seriously, how is a gal to combat feeling… View Post
I guess the closest thing I have to a family heirloom is a gorgeous, ruby red punch bowl that I use now as a fruit bowl. I value the gem-like qualities of the bowl the same way I would if it were a real ruby, say, in a super-sized cocktail ring that was left to me.
There’s nothing like an LA girl in NY to get a fresh perspective on fall and winter trends. I love NY because like LA, anything goes – but simply, it’s east-coast and not west-coast.
While navigating office-appropriate attire can be confusing, there’s one sure-thing: A suit always looks professional and polished. So we put together this quick post about the best women’s suit brands on a budget. Whether you’re buying a full suit or jackets and pants, borrow a tip that men already know – you can and always should get them tailored. Pants… View Post
Summer has come and gone and with the focus off our bare legs, pedis and tanned arms, what’s a fashionista to do? Why, glam up our fingers with cocktail rings, of course! We love the bold statement a cocktail ring makes, drawing attention to our manis as well as our vibrant personality.
We’ve seen these fashions statements many times before. Maybe they came back after a few decades or just several runway shows ago. Whether a style of handbags or animal print on clothing (and on everything including the kitchen sink), they have achieved staying power through fashion history—ancient or recent.
Just eight days after Macy’s announced they will be open for the first time ever on Thanksgiving Day, Kohl’s has followed in their footsteps. However, while Macy’s will remain open for 24 hours straight until the close of business on Friday, Kohl’s has pulled a one-up move on Macy’s: they’re staying open for – get this – 28 hours straight. Kohl’s will open at 8… View Post
Why be the Sexy Fill-in-the Blank like everyone else? I don’t know about you, but I’m so sick of seeing slutty-this and slutty-that on Halloween. Where’s the creativity in that? Here are three thought-provoking, conservative Halloween costumes to try this year. You CAN be the star of the party even without your booty hanging out!

As soon as the word “premium” started to pop up in the denim category, prices on your most essential pants seemed to skyrocket. You can still find high-quality cheap jeans–you just need to know where to look (and of course, we’ve put together a list of our favorites). When buying jeans at any price, there are a few things to… View Post
Still wearing black eyeliner for every event, season and mood? I was, too, until it felt, well, boring. To liven up my look, I started wearing colored eyeliner and I’m thrilled to report: I’m in love. I’m able to brighten up my look without looking like a showgirl or like I just stepped out of the 80s. I admit, switching from black made me nervous. Would wearing… View Post
It’s simple – in my book, Halloween is one of the best “holidays” in existence. It’s got something for everybody – do you like costumes? Are you obsessed with candy? Or maybe you fancy the arts: pumpkin carving and the challenge of DIY Halloween costumes. Whatever your jam, Halloween is just plain fun. My favorite aspect of Halloween is that… View Post
It’s that time of year when local coffee shops start rolling out their pumpkin chai spiced lattes, when temperatures fluctuate between “Are-you-sure-summer-isn’t-over?” and “Yes-it’s-definitely-over,” and when the holidays are just around the riverbend. With pricey trips back home for Turkey Day and saving up for gifts for your familia, it’s time to curb your spending to make sure you’re financially… View Post
Ladies, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. We can’t get enough of the support this time of year, from pink blouses to informative seminars. In addition to walks/runs, screenings and fundraising efforts galore, tons of stores are also doing their share to raise awareness. Many donate a portion to the cause (shout out to Kohl’s, where 100% of certain items’ profit supports the fight against breast cancer). Love it!
