green with envy

Good Ol’ St. Paddy’s day is just two days away. And while we admit to indulging in a shamrock shake or a green beer at least once, we’d like to shift the focus of the holiday from green colored beverges to kelly-colored fashions. When you add in the fact that emerald is the pantone color of the year, we decided to up the ante by hunting down some of the chicest–and priciest — to-die-for duds and accesories.

Here’s, products that turn us green with envy… More >

spring break must-haves!

Spring break is an American institution. Once reserved only for college students, it’s now a seasonal adventure for all ages, and styles. While plotting our own mad dashes for warmer climes — New York City can be brutal in March — we looked to some of our favorite vloggers and bloggers for inspiration.

hot trend: pocket umbrellas

As the winter season draws to a close you can be sure of one thing, it won’t go quietly.  Much like the old adage says, we’ll have to suffer through some showers before we’re greeted with spring flowers. Luckily for all fashionistas braving the rain in heels, some of today’s hottest designers have put their spin on the season’s most utilitarian accessory: the pocket umbrella.

Yes, there is something sleek and chic about using a full-sized, long handled umbrella, but let’s face it, when you’re moving a mile a minute with a never-ending to-do list, those just get in the way.

color trend: red and pink

It may just be the season, hello V-Day, but we love the bursts of pink and flashes of red suddenly popping up on every sidewalk in New York City. Whether you’re in the mood for love, or you just want to shake off the dark, dull colors of winter, sporting a key fashion piece from the rose to rouge color spectrum is must this February. And really, is there a better month to pair a fuchsia purse or a pair of candy apple sunnies with beautifully flushed cheeks or a bright red pout?   More >

winter necessities: tights

 

While we love charming hats and super-cute boots and maybe a hot toddy or two, tights rank at number one on our list of wintertime essentials. They give us the chance to wear our favorite filmy frocks year-round without looking ridiculous… or freezing our gams off. They’re practically magic. The best ones, we think, accentuate an outfit without distracting from it.  This season, we’ve shelved our bright tights of years past and replaced them with a repertoire of classic sheer and black patterns.

Here are a few of our favorite styles. More >

summer’s last color blast: yellow

Sunshine, lemonade, daisies, buttered corn… What do these lovely emblems of summer all have in common? Why, their citrus hue, of course.

The color yellow simply embodies the vibrant, bright, cheery feeling of summer. Get in on the shade with one of these fun items — all of which happen to look best paired with summer-bronzed skin — before this sun-drenched season surrenders to the cool temperatures and deep, earthy tones of fall.
