Don’t fret as you stow your lovely summer frocks, tartelettes. Fall’s got some amazing items in store for you – namely, fresh new bottoms that will have you thinking, who needs dresses? These are so much more interesting.
Girls is being hailed as the next generation’s Sex and the City – and one that’s a little more true to life than the gilded un-reality of Carrie Bradshaw’s gorgeous apartment packed with Manolos and Dior. That’s not to say, though, that we still can’t have fun chronicling each Girls girls’ style, from Marni’s perfectly-coiffed gallery girl to Jessa’s bohemian free spirit. Here are a few of our favorite outfits from the first season, along with ways to recreate the looks yourself. More >
We believe there’s a grape to suit any event, time of day, and budget – whether you’re craving a casual afternoon refreshment or the perfect beverage for a fancy dinner party. But there’s one genre of wine that is specially reserved for celebrations: the sparkling variety. And with good reason! What could be more festive, more congratulatory, more fete-worthy than a beautiful bubbly? The very pop of the cork is enough to put us in a jovial mood.
So cheers to whatever occasion you find bubble-worthy — and make sure to always have a few shimmery outfits to match.
Prosecco is a sparkling wine that hails from Italy — one that is a little more fruity than the typical champagne. It’s your classic bubbly, with a little bite! General tasting notes: pears, apples, honey.
Right now, the only things I want to wear are head-turning shades of solid color. I’m not sure if it was the overwhelming onslaught of soft, subtle neutrals that pervaded our wardrobes all spring, but suddenly my thirst for bright, bold, nearly shocking pops of color is unquenchable. And the most satisfying of them all has to be hot pink. Just one swipe of this electric hue is enough to perk me up – whether in the form of a sunning statement necklace, the perfect satchel, or even my all time favorite childhood chewing gum.
Here are a few of the fuschia items I’m lusting after today:
This past weekend the tarte team participated in Super Saturday 14, a one-of-a-kind designer sample sale, where all the proceeds go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). In addition to having a booth, Maureen Kelly appeared on QVC live from the event raising even more awareness. Even better all net proceeds from her show benefited OCRF! Despite the hot weather, our makeup stayed meltproof. We even had a few minutes to do a little shopping ourselves—all in the name of charity! We picked up an Alex Woo necklace, Alice + Olivia silk green pants, Brooks Brothers’ shirts and lots more!

Definition of the maxi dress: slimming, stylish, sexy, comy-chic, accessible… and the list goes on! This dress could possibly be your best friend this summer—amazing designers are offering it in all types of vibrant patterns and colors this season. Once a week, I try wearing one of the six that I own. They’re just so soft and comfortable; I mean it’s like an acceptable nightgown (based on comfy factor, of course). Thrown on with a pair of stylish sandals, some long necklaces and bangles, you’re ready to go! Celebs such as Lauren Conrad and Jessica Alba rely on this dress to look stylish and sleek for a night out or dinner with friends. Dazzle it up with a wedge shoe, loose wavy hair, and a pop of color on the lip with tarte’s rise and shine lip gloss in pink. Heading to the beach or running some errands? Just as easily, you can dress this look down with flip flops and a side braid.
How are you accessorizing your maxi dress this season?
