Men's VIP List
Both Women's & Men's VIP List
Let's face it: Valentine's Day can be a very stressful holiday. For instance, if you're single commuting to work on Valentine's Day you'll notice every couple holding hands, stealing a kiss or posing for a picture-perfect moment in front of Times Square. On an ordinary morning, you wouldn't even recognize these moments because you're too busy dodging these said couples on your way to work after the trainee barista at Starbucks just messed up your coffee order.
On the other hand, if you're taken your desk will be flooded with roses and your office-mates will be throwing all the “Ooh's” and “Ahh's” at you…and eying that luxurious chocolate that has yet to be opened. You know your significant other has planned a romantic, candlelit dinner for the two of you at a restaurant you don't often venture to.
There is, however, one thing in common on Valentine's Day whether you are single or taken, and that's looking like you just walked out of a photo shoot. We're talking hair done, sultry makeup and an outfit that's going to make you the center of attention. That's where we come in! (more…)
In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.
New Year's Eve is much like Halloween. It's that one time of year where certain over-the-top styles like glitter, sequins, mini dresses and sky high platforms are acceptable. Unless it's your style to go out every night wearing shimmering makeup and glitzy dresses, try and save it for a special occasion like New Year's Eve.
As of November 1st, Starbucks officially traded out their signature white cups for their (highly-anticipated) red holiday cups. And we all know, once this switcheroo happens the holiday season is in full swing. It's hard to believe that just a couple of months ago we were lounging on the beach soaking up the sun. Since the holiday season approached pretty fast, we can only assume your wardrobe isn't fully prepared for all the parties, dinners and family gatherings. That's where we come in.
Our 2013 City Chic Holiday Look Book will surely influence you for this joyous season. Our inspiration? Gritty meets beautiful: taking bold, elegant pieces and allowing their natural beauty pop out amongst the crowd. There's no need to be a wallflower, ladies. Show off your style and stand out!
Shop our look book after the jump and watch our behind-the-scenes video from our holiday photo shoot. (more…)
There are many people who are willing to look fashionable but are sometimes at a loss as to how to do this. For instance, most people often have a very difficult time figuring out what kind of clothes to wear during winter. For most, the fact that itâ€™s very cold makes them go for functionality rather than form when shopping for winter clothes. This means that they sacrifice fashion just to be comfortable.
However, the fact of the matter is that you can get the best of both worlds if you are interested in it. There are a few fashion trends that are poised to be very popular during the winter and which still remain fashionable. Some of these include: (more…)
The end of the week has finally arrived and youâ€™re ready to let loose and let off some steam.Â You're going to get dolled up just so you can go sweat it all off on the dance floor. Â 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?) Â that half the fun of going out is the ritualÂ 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.Â (more…)
You know when youâ€™re watching a movie and somehow everything seems to magically work out for the main character in ways that seemingly never happen for you? If your life is anything like mine, all your life changing opportunities are presented at the worst times. The cute guy is standing beside you in the coffee line and youâ€™re dressed like a bum, you get invited to the party/networking event of the century and you wonâ€™t have time to go home and change beforehand, Â Â your pants rip on the way to your interview, or your heels already blistered your feet and your date with your future husband has just begun.
The secret to having those perfect movie moments play out like your dreams is attention to detail and a good attitude. The smallest things can ruin an epic moment. Here is what you can do to prepareÂ (more…)
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. Thereâ€™s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didnâ€™t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staringâ€¦talking about â€œit.â€ â€œItâ€ is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)
Happy Pride! The pride parade is something I always look forward to every year Iâ€™m in New York City, especially this year with the death of DOMA. A couple was carrying a poster that read â€œTogether for 20 years, married for 8, finally legal.â€ People lined the streets from Midtown on 5th Avenue all the way down to Greenwich, watching from behind the barricades or from apartment windows and balconies.

I'm constantly on the hunt for easy and cute nail art ideas. Keyword being easy. I honestly can't stand having a solid-colored manicure because I get bored of it in less than a day and everyone else has the same thing. Nail art allows your personality to shine through in a different way than the obvious hair and style choices. Plus, everyone will be jealous of your pretty nails and will never believe you did them yourself! (more…)
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.”
