How to Be a Good Liar: The Truth About Lying

10:09 AM

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…)

Rachel’s Radar: Casual, Fancy…& White

11:52 AM

In the summer months I love to wear white and cream colors and mix all of my cool rings and chains to give my style some more personality.  I wanted to show the everyday woman how they can make white look casual, fancy and versatile for almost any occasion.

From Michelle Tanner to Fashion Moguls – 27 Years in the Making

11:05 AM

27 years ago today two of the most successful women in acting and fashion were born. At just nine months old, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were brought by their mother to audition for the part of Michelle Tanner in Full House. Obviously, the girls got the part and played Michelle until they were 9 years old. At age six, Mary-Kate and Ashley became the youngest producers in history.

As they grew older, their style and interests matured. Venturing into the world of fashion, Mary-Kate and Ashley launched their first line The Row followed by Elizabeth and James and TEXTILE Elizabeth and James. The extremely talented duo has an eye for must-have colors and silhouettes while staying on top of new trends. Each with their own sense of style, they work together to create garments of impeccable quality and creativity.

In honor of their 27th birthday, here are some fun facts about the most well-known set of twins in Hollywood. (more…)

Cue the Wrath of Heels in 3, 2, 1…

11:15 AM

Let's face it, women go through many obstacles in life that men will never have to endure. You've planned a tropical getaway and before you leave for the airport you get a visit from your oh-so-timely monthly friend. Or, the day has finally came to give birth to that little baby that has been using your womb and body as its mansion for, ya know, the last nine months. No big deal, right? Women get through these things every day. There is, however, one obstacle no woman will ever get over…unless you're Victoria Beckham. (more…)

BFF’s Rita Ora & Cara Delevingne to Create a Fashion Line?

4:03 PM

Photogenic besties Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora have been rumored to create their own fashion collection for Topshop with the help of Chloe Green. A source at The Sun says, “Rita and Cara have been talking about the idea for weeks now. Cara has great fashion industry contacts and Rita loves her clothes and keeps up with trends.”

What kind of collection could be the brainchild of two beautiful, quirky and flirty women? Our guess would be bold and fun pieces that definitely isn't for the classic and preppy ladies (not that there's anything wrong with those styles!) We're thinking items along the lines of beanies, bombers, slouchy trouser pants and suits.

“They think a line could compete with those released by Victoria Beckham and Kate Moss. Rita's become increasingly matey with Chloe Green and has mentioned the idea to her in the hope that she might help get it to her dad, Topshop boss Philip,” adds the source.

Would you be excited for a Cara and Rita fashion collaboration?

10 Things to Try to Look Like You’re Not Trying

11:15 AM

Effortless – my favorite word, style and attitude. The secret to happiness and all good things in life is, to simply put it, “give no f**ks.”  I mean think about the ideal woman, a Victoria’s Secret model, and the ideal man, James Bond. Granted the Victoria’s Secret models weigh about as much as the average 12 year old and have legs that go on for months, and Bond looks phenomenal in a suit and always has a perfectly chiseled jaw line. It’s the element of not caring or trying to be cool that makes them both SO cool.

The VS model with her seemingly not styled, messy, tousled bedhead and soft smokey eyes walking around in her lingerie in front of an audience with a flirty smile as if it were any other day and not the average person’s nightmare. Then there’s Bond getting into to fist fights on top of trains, dangling from the sides of buildings and slipping out of every predicament and into the next without breaking a sweat and keeping a monotone, unamused voice. The ultimate Mr. Cool.

Regardless if you fall into the mainstream standards or follow the beat of your own drummer, as long as you carry yourself as if you’re proud and no one is watching, you can get away with anything.

Here are 10 things to try to look like you’re NOT trying: (more…)

Summer Prints and How to Stop Traffic

10:39 AM

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.
