Monday, July 28, 2014 Trends: Trench Toast
Have you noticed how editors talk about personal style as though getting ready was a mathematical equation? We throw terms around like “cost per wear”, and “fashematics” i.e. an A-line skirt + knee-high boots = the Mod look. There’s also the faithful “top five” wardrobe essentials, a list to live and die by. Everyone has a top five, and often everyone ends up having the same top five: a classic white shirt, a well cut pair of jeans, an LBD, brogues, and of course, a trench coat. A trench coat always makes the cut.

Skin is a beautiful thing, especially when you get to paint it all fancy and show it off.
In possibly the first time for me that a beauty look has been inspired by a Discovery Channel documentary on Netflix, I’m taking a feather (or petal?) from our winged brethren, the bird of paradise. Funny how it’s generally the males in nature who get all the pretty colors to dance-hop around and woo their future baby-mamas. Not to delve into cross-dressing here, I see no problem following suit with these harbingers of tropical paradisco. Here’s a look inspired by the flower or the animal—you pick.

Tuesday, July 22, 2014 Right Now: Fringe With Benefits

We’re suggesting you put on a show.
