When you’re meeting a guy, what do you look for first? Nice style? Toned arms? At least a full set of teeth? And how about other women? We swear we don’t judge but we notice when a girl is nicely put together or if she looks a little rough around the edges. The reality is your nails can say a lot about you. So before you grab your next bottle of polish, or head to the local salon, find out what your manicure is really saying about you. Dark ColorsRead More

In-Store Retail is Going Down, Down Baby

It’s no surprise that retail has plummeted the past few years. The economy, alone, has been an utter disaster. Consumers are strictly looking for the best deals and why not? E-commerce has changed the way people shop dramatically. You can buy goods from across the world with free shipping, better prices, superior quality, and in bulk. For example, in my last internship I helped my boss style her outfits for New York Fashion Week (NYFW). By shopping online, I saved her over $500. It’s all about keywords and knowing whatRead More

Killer Unibrows

Unibrows can be fierce and badass.  Unfortunately, Americans don’t typically crave that singular wave of emotionally-charged expressive hair that perches atop our lovely eyes.  Eyebrows are a thing of character.  Less is more, some people are apt to say.  But thick, natural brows are trending and we’re just a few lazy Sundays away from abandoning plucking altogether.  This would be a favor to all the pubescent American middle school girls who are being introduced to tweezers by their older sister on her futon one bored afternoon. Until that day, IRead More
Wedding season is about to be here! New York Spring Bridal Week has presented some of the most beautiful gowns on the runway. Designers focused on airy, delicate gowns that any bride would swoon over. Sleeves were a main focus along with illusion looks that had tattoo style lace. Vera Wang, Reem Acra, and Monique Lhuiller showed illusion necklines, sleeves, and back details. Monique Lhuiller even presented a mint green tulle ball gown that easily became my favorite. Her inspiration this year was “My Ethereal Daydream.”She drew inspiration from American portraitRead More
April has finally arrived! As great as the transition to warmer weather is, we all know April showers bring May flowers. Rain boots are now a necessity. Here are a few tips when deciding which kind to choose, and a few of my favorites. Women with longer legs should try to wear boots that reach higher on the leg – in order to showcase their elongated legs. Petite ladies, lean more towards the shorter length. They are not only more fashionable, but also lightweight! If you’re a consumer that needsRead More

Remembering L’Wren Scott

For those of you who do not know, the fashion world is mourning another incredible loss, yet again.  Last Monday, L’ Wren Scott was found dead in her home after committing suicide. Most articles you read will describe her financial matters or the fact that she was linked to a famous boyfriend. However, neither one of those truly matters in the end. Therefore, it is ridiculous to keep on repeating  facts that do not reflect the type of woman she was. L’ Wren Scott was amazingly creative and a genius inRead More

Best-Dressed Women at the Oscars

Last night, we saw the stars dazzle on the red carpet. Some, more than others, were more successful in pulling off their couture gowns. Here are a few of my favorite gowns: Lupita Nyong stunned in light blue Prada gown. Sandra Bullock looked gorgeous in her Alexander Mcqueen gown. Honestly, this was one of my favorite looks that she has worn. Cate Blanchett looking gorgeous in nude embellished Armani Prive gown. TV personality Nancy O’Dell wore a stunning Mac Duggal sequined gown. Kate Hudson looked ravishing in her draped, whiteRead More

Cheers to New York: NY Fashion Week

For the past few days, all eyes of the fashion world have been fixated on New York. Fashion Week has brought some of the best and most unique designs to our attention. Different materials are being used this year, such as alpaca. In addition to some new fabrics being debuted on the runway, we also see the use of knits and furs. This is not uncommon or unexpected for the fall 2014 collections. Overall trends are wovens and relevant in each designers’ collections. Among these integral trends are: fringe, fur,Read More
Earlier this year, I wrote about the up and coming trends of 2014. As a much-anticipated spring emerges, I want to go more in-depth about the trends that you will see in women’s clothing this season. Each designer will produce their own version of the trend, but ultimately the overall concept will be the same. One fabrication that will be prevalent in the spring season will be sheer layers. These layers will be constructed of silks and organzas. Other universally used fabrications will be shiny metallics and translucent designs. TheseRead More
For those of you who didn’t know, Paris Fashion Week was in full swing last week. The shows were impressive and designers continued to push the envelope for the next big thing. Haute couture is my absolute favorite part of the fashion world, so whenever designers have a new collection out, I couldn’t be happier. January 23 was the official last day for fashion shows, and it did not disappoint with the featured couture collection. Here’s a look back at a big week in fashion:   Since there are soRead More
Since we endured a polar vortex recently, and it was a refreshing -30 degrees F here, I felt that it was fitting to write an article on the highest rated winter boots on the market. I also wanted to clarify what to look for and the quality of different boots before you went and made a final purchase. We still have a lot of snow days ahead of us this year, so you might as well be prepared for the worst! There are many factors that contribute to the qualityRead More
As the New Year starts, many people are thinking about putting their best foot forward to find a new job or re-vamp their business attire. Business attire does not usually change often. Nevertheless, it can be used to differentiate between conservative, business casual, and in some places casual wear. To prove how little business attire really does change, I interviewed one of the top sales people at Saks Fifth Avenue, where I work. Throughout the decades, one of the main changes she has seen concerns medical students. Twenty years ago,Read More

2013 in Women’s Fashion

As the New Year begins, it is only fitting to look back at the trends that were most popular in 2013 in womenswear and menswear. Each year, there is a resurgence of a trend that has happened in the past. Fashion is cyclical and although the main concepts do not change- how it inspires different designers does. Runway fashion will, of course, always be an extreme style due to showmanship. The runway gets translated into everyday concepts and pieces that can be worn by the public. The exception is hauteRead More
