The weather is starting to heat up, and you're starting to dream of summer cookouts, trips to the pool, and leaving the house without a jacket. Sadly, some people continue to be the absolute worst. They think they're entitled to an opinion about us - and that their opinion actually...3 Comments
A cruise pulls you out of your usual routine - which is part of the appeal. Once you're on the ship, you don't have to worry about anything except showing up to dinner on time. It's so relaxing. But do you have anything to wear? There's more pressure to dress...
Including a dress code on an invitation can make it easy to pick an outfit for the event - as long as you know what it means. You might groan at the words, "Black tie," but at least you know what's expected of you. Smart Casual can make you want to...1 Comment
For most of us, packing for a beach vacation takes a bit of thought. Since one of those thoughts is, "This would be a lot easier if I had time to go shopping," we should have this conversation whether or not you're planning a trip to the beach in the...
I'm always blathering on about how versatile dresses can be dressy or casual depending on the accessories. Dress it up! Dress it down! That can sound like vague and useless advice if you don't have a ridiculous amount of accessories like I do. So let's talk details. The Base Clean, unembellished clothes are the...3 Comments
...and other people you don't want to see. Sometimes you need an outfit that says, "see how much happier I am without you?" Oh sure, your confidence and the way you carry yourself can convey that nicely. But you want an outfit that can shut someone up the second they...4 Comments
It's getting hot out, everyone's shipping their kids off to summer camp, you've been invited to a dozen cookouts and you don't have a thing to wear. This includes all those things that you don't want to wear. Maybe you bought them at a hotel gift shop when your luggage was lost or...
I've spent most of my life living in cities that attract loads of tourists. As a result, I have laid eyes on many fanny packs, my friends. Also denim shorts (even when they were out of style), ill fitting t-shirts, gleaming white sneakers, and matching ill fitting t-shirts. I've seen so...4 Comments
There are two schools of thought when it comes to city vacation wardrobes. The first is, "I want to be comfortable and that means dressing like I'm going to an amusement park even though my day involves going to an art museum and eating in a nice restaurant." The second...4 Comments
So here's a sentence I never thought I'd write: we just got in some amazing jeggings. No, seriously. Even a fashion snob like me can appreciate these babies. Many of us have a complicated relationships with leggings, so let's unpack that, shall we? Remember stirrup pants? I loved those things....2 Comments
Some people reach for hot cocoa when it snows, but I reach for the pina colada mix (alcohol optional). A blizzard may be raging outside, but my brain is in Bermuda. Maybe you feel like joining me in my state of denial or maybe you're planning a real beach vacation....1 Comment
I've seen a few tweets lately that have given me hope for womankind. They all say something like, "The beach is going to be happy with the body I give it." Finally! After years of hearing about how we have to change our bodies for the beach, women are questioning...
I dress to stand out - bright colors, bold accessories, aggressively red lipstick with a handbag to match. Yet I still worry about not fitting in. I'm often the dressiest person in the room and I wonder if that sets me apart from my friends and family. Of course, everyone...2 Comments
I get it. Even I have some shlumpy clothes for when I just can't deal anymore. It feels good to give myself a break. But it feels lousy to know I'm wearing clothes that I wouldn't wear out of the house. Especially when I decide to wear them outside anyway. It's just a...2 Comments
