As internet subscription services begin to outnumber websites featuring quizzes about
things like 'Which Caroline in the City character are you?" I find myself wondering which
of them are actually worth my monthly fee and which have a press release that just fit
nicely into a click-through blurb?
I decided to test a few of them out to get a feel for how they actually benefit a user, and
how much they live up to their promising allure.
Hey kiddos, whether you like it or not, New York Fashion
Week has been in full swing, and all the fashionable people on the Internet are buzzing
about shows, photographers, and the right thing to wear when entering the
tents. While I have yet to attend
Fashion Week (no matter my passion, I need my work paycheck to pay the mortgage
and to fill my closet), I have learned from my fellow fashionistas that while
it is important to care about what you wear, it's equally important to be
informed and share your runway experiences.
Below is a list of must-have phone apps and websites you should be checking out for the ultimate experience at New York Fashion week, or any fashion event
throughout the year.
I have often written on my blog about wardrobe staples and I feel that every woman should have a simple black dress in her wardrobe. Owning such a dress means you're ready for a wedding, a funeral, a date or a cocktail party.
However, sometimes it's nice to go beyond basic black. And one of those times is the holidays. Right around the corner is the season for eggnog, mistletoe and wining and dining with friends. While you could use a simple LBD to ring the season in with style, choosing color can add a festive touch to your ensemble while also making you stand out in a crowd.
Take a cue from Michelle Obama, who at the South Korea state dinner stood out in a sea of black in her ultraviolet one-shouldered gown from designer Doo-Ri Chung. Her choice of a must-notice color allowed her not to have to rely on sparkly jewelry, a fancy updo or unique makeup. The dress was elegant yet relatively simple, letting the color steal the show.
I love leather and am so glad that leather clothing has come back en vogue this season. Leather is surprisingly versatile and this year designers have been getting creative with it, using it for detailing and in unusual silhouettes.
While leather clothing is a classic wardrobe addition (I have leather skirts and trousers that are over a decade old and still very stylish and on-trend), they can be pretty pricey. It is possible to add the leather trend to your wardrobe without spending an arm and a leg.
Unless you live under a rock, you know that Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge just finished up a tour of North America. Every blog, newspaper, and morning talk show has broken down not only the royal couple's itinerary and activities, but Kate's sartorial choices.
We all don't have a royal jet or royal funds (or an on-call hair stylist), but we can learn from Kate Middleton and her travel wardrobe. Throughout the entire trip, she always looked effortlessly chic, comfortable, and completely appropriate for every situation.
