How to Be a Good Liar: The Truth About Lying

I lie, you lie, we all lie. If you’re saying to yourself as you read this that you don’t lie – then you just lied.

Get over yourself.

It’s not okay to lie as Pinocchio taught us all as small children. But the truth is your nose won’t grow and YOU WILL GET EATEN ALIVE in the real world if you don’t learn to do it correctly. So what I’m saying is – it is okay, even necessary, to lie in certain situations. It’ll get where you want to go, you can protect people’s feelings (including your own), and it makes your stories more interesting. Just don’t be a jerk and lie in critical or immoral situations. I’m not your mom – you know the situations I’m talking about. (more…)

Summer Prints and How to Stop Traffic

Summer has officially arrived in New York City. Everyone is breaking out their shorts, breezy fabrics and flirty dresses. This summer is the summer of prints and brights. Loud, fun, obnoxious, novelty prints and bold, saturated colors. Prints of all kinds including florals, animal, skulls, paisley, preppy, you name it. I myself love bold abstract and tribal statement prints. It’s a great way to stand out in NYC.

New Yorkers are all in an unspoken competition to see who can stand out the most and make a statement. Life here is about celebrating individuality and having others notice and acknowledge it. But in a place where the competition and ambition are high, no one will notice you if you don’t give them a reason to.  Incorporating a colorful print into your outfit is a simple eye catching way to spark interest.  Check out the bright summer prints on these street stylers in Little Italy.

Vintage: Your Grandma Used to be Cool Too

New York City I LOVE vintage everything. The idea of a vintage piece that has stood the test of time and lived to tell a story about it fascinates me. The garments and accessories from past decades reflect the mood of the people, the advancement in technology, political drama and social standards. Through time loosened whale bone corsets, shorter hemlines, burned bras, acid wash jeans, and men with lipstick have become socially acceptable, though not without controversy and drama.

Why the constant push for change? Because fashion loves drama, drama is entertainment, and entertainment is money. After all, it’s money that makes the world go ‘round. And although past trends may resurface there is always a new modern twist. Fashion will continue to push social boundaries so long as people can be offended and technology advances.  (more…)

Every girl needs that go-to Little Black Dress (LBD). It's the one piece of clothing in your closet that you know will look good on you no matter what. Your LBD should make you feel confident and beautiful. If you're in the market for a new LBD or want to add another to your collection, take a look at a few of these dresses!

I am personally head over heels for this Elizabeth and James Alexa Dress because it has a classic and clean silhouette.

Watch Out: We’re Featured in InStyle

Scarlet Dress

Does this dress look familiar? It might be because it's the second time we're featured in a magazine for the same dress! Celebs love this versatile lace dress by For Love & Lemons.

You can style this dress more edgy with the black version or more flirty and girly with the white. It all depends on the accessories, ladies! I'm personally leaning toward the black because I like how you can really see the lace detail against bare skin like the sleeves and chest.
