Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you’re well aware of the recent temperature drop we’ve been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven’t already done so, it’s officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)

I Know What Girls Like: How to Impress Your Lady on Date Night

This one is for the boys who are trying to impress the ladies. Hopefully by now you’ve worked your charm and you got that pretty young thing to agree to go on a date with you. You won her over with your personality and mutual interests, but you need to keep impressing her. She’s going to want to see how dynamic you are and how you flourish in different settings.

Basically, we women, notice details and we’re using them to judge you. While we’re enjoying the moment with you, we’re also trying to determine what a future with you would be like (whether its short term or long term). Your first impressions are vital, so you better dress to the nines and open doors for us – chivalry is NOT dead.  (more…)

How To: Perfectly Distress a Pair of Jeans

There’s something about distressed denim that I’m in love with. Perhaps, it’s the way each fray and rip wears in perfectly to the contours of my legs with each wear? The fact they already have that broken in feel and I don’t have to do squats to make them stretch a bit? Ladies, I know you know what I’m talking about. Or they are just simply effortless and chic.

I stumbled across this amazing, detailed tutorial on the Free People blog, BLDG 25, showing you how to perfectly distress a pair of jeans. It really doesn’t take any time at all to create a truly unique pair of jeans. Plus, you only need a few tools: a sharp razor blade (be careful!), card stock, scissors, sandpaper and a dremel, which is optional. (more…)

Note to Self: Put On Your Big Girl Panties.

Dear ladies (and some European men):

Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. There’s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didn’t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staring…talking about “it.” “It” is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)

The Average Woman Owns 19 Pairs of Shoes

As I was driving into work this morning, I was listening to a husband complain on the radio about how he has no closet space in his bedroom because he wife has too many shoes. I sat at a red light confused at this complaint for two reasons: 1. Why do you share a closet with your wife? I’m convinced there’s no way a man and woman can share a closet and expect everything to be fine. 2. There is no such thing as too many shoes. (more…)

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…)

Rachel’s Radar: Distinguished by Denim

Current/ElliottDenim has been an all time favorite from season to season. The big three denim brands used to be Levi’s, Lee and Wrangler. Now there are so many different and trendy brands such as J Brand, , Citizens of Humanity and Current/Elliott just to name a few.

Denim Denim became popular with the youth in the 1950s as a symbol of teenage rebellion, in movies such as The Wild One. Jeans were not the “good girl good boy” style back in the day. Currently called jeans, earlier known as dungarees, are a staple in everyone’s wardrobe. (more…)

The Definition of Sexy

Street Style Sex sells. Its no secret by now, we all know the more provocative the ad  campagin the more we pay attention (hence the controversial underage Brooke Shields Calvin Klein “nothing gets between me and my Calvins” commercial).  So many of us yearn to be the object of desire to others, because nothing is more flattering than provoking their primal lust. There is no compliment more honest. But what EXACTLY defines sexy? There is always some type of “it” factor that every issue of Cosmopolitan is trying to convince us is easily achievable with a certain outfit or inconspicuous flirty arm touch. It’s much more than that. There’s a reason Ryan Gosling is the center of our fantasies and not so much Steve Carell (no offense Steve!!).  (more…)

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…)

Spotted: Sarah Jessica Parker in Current/Elliott

Denim

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted looking super cute in these amazing Current/Elliott Ankle Skinny in fishnet. I love these jeans because the fishnet design is faded and gives a textured look.

If you want a look similar to Sarah's opt for this Minnie Rose Cashmere Pow Wow Sweater in pink floyd layered with Gypsy 05 Boyfriend Tank in navy.
