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…)

Fashion Faux Pas: How to Not Be a Victim

Fashion

Hope you’re all enjoying this extension of winter and know that the groundhog has been rightfully indicted (LOL). Check the news if you don’t know what I’m referring to. We’re all still bundled up in coats and scarves in NYC. Try a SMYTHE blazer under a detachable fur coat collar for a look similar to mine.

A ‘faux pas’, as I’m sure you all know, is the refined French way that we like to refer to a social blunder. Because everything sounds better in French, including our embarrassing fashion mishaps.

So how do you avoid becoming a Fashion Faux Pas victim? (more…)

Trending: Military Green

One of my favorite colors (ever) is military green. It’s a neutral and goes with great with anything. What’s not to love? Plus, it’s a pretty color for fall so here are some items to keep in mind.

This SMYTHE Colorblock Blazer is super stylish because you can wear it with a fitted tee and jeans and you will instantly dress up your outfit.

Watch Out: Lucky Magazine Features Our Smythe Warbler Tribute Jacket for Anti-Bullying

Warbler Tribute Jacket

Our Smythe Warbler Tribute Jacket was recently featured by Lucky magazine for good reason. Not only is this jacket cute, but it's to benefit a number of anti-bullying organizations in both the USA and Canada.

The inspiration behind this striped, cropped sleeve jacket is Kurt Hummel, Glee's openly gay character played by Chris Colfer. In the show, which is one of my favorites, Kurt is a rising star who battles daily discrimination from his peers.

Smitten

Because Smythe jackets, coats and blazers are that good, we’re dedicating an entire blog entry just for them. It’s no wonder that some of the world’s most stylish women (insert: Kate Middleton) have been spotted wearing Smythe.  The collection has been so carefully constructed that each piece feels as though it was made just for you!  The contemporary, flawlessly-tailored jackets and coats feature nostalgic colors, textures and prints that are distinct in their traditional menswear tailoring details. This artful tailoring and sartorial fit made Smythe an instant success when the label launched in 2004. Smythe’s made-in-Canada jackets and coats are iconic silhouettes that are novel yet versatile.
