Summer Fashions that Transition into Fall

We all want to get the most out of our wardrobe—especially if we paid for quality items. But as the summer sun fades to autumn’s greyer skies and orange leaves, you might find yourself forced to contemplate a shift in your wardrobe.

There are, of course, some things you’ll have to drop your hard-earned cash for like a leather jacket, perhaps. However, here are a few items you can get value out of even as the weather changes.  (more…)

The Art of Dancing the Night Away and Winning Over Hugh Jackman

The end of the week has finally arrived and you’re ready to let loose and let off some steam.  You’re going to get dolled up just so you can go sweat it all off on the dance floor.  Guys don’t understand that, despite the dim lights of the night life scene, and their preference for “natural beauty” (you know the guys who say they don’t like makeup but think Kim Kardashian is hot…um, what?)  that half the fun of going out is the ritual of applying the war paint to our faces and picking outfits in preparation for potentially running into Hugh Jackman on the dance floor. It’s our modern form of meditation.  (more…)

How To Ward Off a Crush & Be Crushed On

It might have happened to you. That moment you become a little fearful, yet somewhat flattered, of someone who is obsessing over you. He or she may show up uninvited or constantly text/call/e-mail you even though you provide little to no response. You don’t have the heart to tell him or her to leave you alone, or maybe you do but he or she mistook your straight-forwardness for playing hard-to-get.

Trending: Stripes!

Trend

People might be intimidated by wearing striped tops, jeans, dresses, etc. Stripes have the reputation of making you look wider than you truly are. However, according to a style report on TLC, “A perception expert at the University of York in the U.K. found that when two women of the same size wore horizontally and vertically striped dresses, the woman wearing the horizontal stripes appeared thinner. These experiments were based on the Helmholtz square illusion, first created in the eighteenth century, and suggest that horizontal stripes may help slim the figure by creating a 3D effect and introducing depth.”

Check out a few easy ways to look great and feel confident wearing stripes! (more…)

Hey Mom, Treat Yourself for Mother’s Day!

Mother's DayOne of the toughest jobs in the world is to be a mother. It’s nice to have one day a year that’s guaranteed to appreciate all the hard work and effort mom’s everywhere have to deal with on a daily basis. It would be nice if there were two, three…or four days dedicated to it! But we’re just saying.

Obviously since it’s Mother’s Day you will receive gifts from your children saying how much they love you and that you are the best mom in the whole world. And while you may cherish and look forward to opening these precious gifts that may possibly get stowed away somewhere, eaten (you can’t resist those chocolates) or die (I’m talking about flowers!), you should treat yourself. Yes, that’s right. We want you to buy yourself something this Mother’s Day! (more…)

Must-Have Items for When the Sun Starts Shining

We’ve gone through some roller coaster-style weather here in New York this past year. Rain storms, tons of snow, Hurricane Sandy and too many gray days left me begging for spring time. Our first couple weeks of spring wasn’t all that great honestly. It was kinda grey and chilly, but now the sun is shining and the flowers are starting to bloom lining the sidewalks with vibrant colors.

Now that warm spring weather is in full effect, I find the sleeves on my tops are slowly inching up towards my shoulders. And although I love wearing boots, I love when it comes time to ditch them for half the year and switch to flats and sandals. When I think of spring my mind goes straight to light-wash denim, slouchy tops and lightweight sweaters. On that note, here are a few of my must-have items that no wardrobe should be without!

Who Said Denim Had to be Simple?

Denim So long to the good ole days of blue jeans. Granted, your closet is probably filled with your favorite pairs of classic-washed jeans with fades, whiskers and rips courtesy of your own self-doing, but lately graphic denim has hit the scene and they’re on a mission.

Think of graphic denim as a way to express yourself. There are so many different kinds to choose from that can perfectly match your style and personality. Try a paisley print if you’re more girly or camo if you have more of an edgy, laid back style. (more…)

My Cyber Monday Wishlist!

Dresses

In my opinion, Cyber Monday is way better than Black Friday. I rather lay in my bed on my laptop and score awesome deals than wait outside on a freezing line for hours and risk not getting what I waited for. It’s also just so much easier and convenient. Take 20% off your SINGER22 order today with code: CYBER and it ends tonight so hurry up and go fill that shopping bag!

I put together my wishlist for Cyber Monday that mostly consists of holiday/winter inspired pieces. Take a look below!

  1. BOULEE Avery Lace Dress in black: A girly dress with sheer lace sleeves, a full skirt and an open back.
  2. Parker Geometric Beaded Dress: The perfect holiday dress with a rich hue, beading and a dropped waist and draped skirt.
  3. Elizabeth and James Lisette Dress: Body-hugging long sleeve dress with a layered tulle skirt.

Thanksgiving Day Outfit: Comfy or Chic?

Believe it or not, Thanksgiving is just a few days away! It's crazy how fast the time is going but I cannot be more excited for Thanksgiving. Besides my birthday (yes, I count that as a holiday) and Christmas, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I'm a huge foodie and there's obviously tons of food. The one dilemma I face is whether or not to get dressed up or stay comfy. My personal choice is to be comfortable because I like to just hang around all day and eat myself into a food coma. But for everyone else who wants to dress their best, we have some outfit inspiration for you! (more…)
