nye dresses for any occasion

The holiday party circuit is drawing to a close, but there’s still one final blowout left: New Year’s Eve! The biggest celebration of the year offers the perfect excuse to put on one last, super-fabulous frock – whether you’re attending a black-tie affair or just throwing back some bubbly with your besties. Sequins are appropriate, of course, as are LBD’s… or you could choose to stand out in something a bit unexpected. This season’s best evening dresses also come in everything from red to blue to cut-out’s to to lace to funky modern prints. We’ve found some dream gowns for you to choose from, or to use as inspiration for your NYE look. Pop… fizz… clink! Happy new year! More >

holiday gift guide: urban muse

One of our favorite rock & roll divas, Kim Schifino (the female half of the indie dance duo Matt & Kim) is a fearless, stylish and hilarious tartelette! Check out #MKrealtalk to see what we mean. She also lives by a cruelty-free philosophy, so when it came time to plan Matt & Kim’s Fall 2012 Lightning Tour, the duo arranged to host that city’s no-kill animal shelter in the concert venue’s lobby. This gave concert-goers the opportunity to learn how they can help keep their community a no-kill area. We’re very proud to call her a tartelette — but not too proud to snoop through her holiday gift list!
