What I’m Wearing: Winter Weather Maxi Skirts

I’ve been wearing the heck out of this skirt since I snagged it for $20, and ever since I realized I could pull off the maxi trend despite my height — or lack-thereof — I’ve been reluctant to ban this floor-sweeping frock to the back of my closet just because it’s winter. During cooler temps, I like […]

What I’m Wearing: Bold Brights to Beat the Winter Blues

There’s an easy way to beat your winter blues – and it doesn’t involve a tanning bed. A cold-weather pick-me-up is as easy as adding a dose (or two) of electric color to your look. Vibrant yellows, radiant reds and pinks are my go-to happy colors during winter. Layering these bold brights is my favorite way […]

Off-the-Set Style: Amanda Setton

You may not immediately recognize the name Amanda Setton, but you surely know her as Queen B’s Main Minion, the gossip-loving, always-texting Constance aristocrat, Penelope Shafai.  Penelope may not always be front-and-center on-screen, but there’s no denying the girl has some serious style worth stalking.

Photo Recap: Lori’s Shoes Capsule Collection

Earlier this month, Lori’s Shoes landmarked nearly 30 years of fashion, shoes and accesories and unveiled Lori’s own capsule collection for winter ’11/spring ’12. Of course, I had to head up to their Lincoln Park shop to partake in the celebration .   In addition to previewing Lori’s newest collection, I had the pleasure of […]

Shoe Shopping: Military-Inspired Work Boots

It took me awhile to warm up this trend, but I’ve grown to love the tough and subtle detail (and weather-resistent’ness) of these military-inspired statement-makers this season. If you’re wary about incorporating them into your wardrobe, try pairing them with super-feminine frocks to diminish their masculine look. 1. Betsey Johnson, 2. All Saints, 3. Jeffrey […]

Gossip Girl Fashion Copycat: Season 5, Episode 10

Project Runway: Season Finale Fashion Copycat

Did you watch last night’s season finale of Project Runway? If you haven’t, and you plan to, stop reading! If so, let’s chat: Whose collection did you like and dislike? Joshua’s urban pieces boasted a primary palette of black-and-white; Kimberly’s metallic blue hues looked uber feminine (so did she!); and Viktor said he’s beach-meets-city girl. […]

Rag & Bone: Sun-Kissed & Chic

After watching the seemingly sun-drenched Rag & Bone models saunter down the runway at Fashion Week, I was ready to dip my head in peroxide, move to SoCal, and stock my closet with tangerine and citrus hues. Okay, not really; but there are some seriously strong surfer references in this season’s collection. Nonetheless, the line […]

In the Mood for Monochromatic / Tuesday: Rose Petal Pink

This trend will be an easy one to ride into the fall season through layering. (You know I love a good layer!) When styling, remember to pay particular attention to textures. To add a bit of visual interest,  pile thin fabrics into the mix, like a twisted tank or lace top. Wearing: Dress, H&M ($12 […]
