30 Days of Outfit Ideas: 3 Ways to Make Every Outfit Cuter

January 30th, 2018 by

I remember hearing Wolfgang Puck’s wife say that he could wake up in the morning on an ordinary day and make the best egg you’d ever had. He could take something simple, and make it sublime. I am not Wolfgang Puck. My eggs are very ordinary, and I am not a dash-of-this and pinch-of-that kind […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Accessorize

January 29th, 2018 by

When we were little, we were fearless. We piled on ropes and ropes of pearls and then added plastic shoes and a tiara and felt fabulous. We didn’t worry about looking a little, well, much. We didn’t second-guess our accessory choices before removing one item and muttering: “Less is more.” Because less was not more. […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Mix Prints & Patterns

January 28th, 2018 by

I do not consider myself an artistic person. At all. I am the opposite of artistic, as a matter of fact. But when it comes to fashion, I like to think of myself as a Picasso, mixing and matching patterns with abandon. Sometimes, it works. Other times, not so much. But I’m crazy like that. […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Wear a Belt

January 27th, 2018 by

Oh, the angst, you guys. The sheer agony and stress everyone seems to feel at the mere mention of the word belt. And yet, many of us feel like they’re a necessary evil, like wrinkles and saddlebags. They’re not, though. Necessary. Or evil. A friend recently texted me in a panic because her teen daughter had […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Wear a Scarf

January 26th, 2018 by

I love scarves, but not half as much as Pinterest does. Lately, my feed is all about scarves, and not just because I’m researching this story. If Pinterest equaled real life, we would all be walking around in ripped jeans and blanket scarves, sporting coffee cups and glossy waves. We would all look like this: […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Wear Animal Print

January 25th, 2018 by

I never knew that fashion could be so controversial until I started writing about it. After all, it’s just fashion, right? Wrong. Apparently, people have very, very strong opinions about these things. People besides me, of course. I still shudder when I think of the fallout from that time I bravely stepped forward and proclaimed that […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Wear a Maxi

January 23rd, 2018 by

I want to love the maxi so much more than I do, you guys, but I’m mini, and maxis, by definition, are maxi. They have caused me so much angst. That’s why it took me so long to even attempt to wear one. That, and flashbacks to the light green polyester maxi dress with puff […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Style a Moto Jacket

January 22nd, 2018 by

You know I’m all about the completer piece, don’t you? I feel like I talk about it all the time, and hopefully, you all aren’t tired of it by now because it’s that important. The completer piece is that essential third piece in an outfit that takes it from so-so to stylish. And while it […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Wear Sneakers with Everything

January 21st, 2018 by

Full disclosure: I don’t typically wear sneakers. There, now that’s out, I hope you’ll let me explain why a sneaker-less stylist is talking about how to style sneakers. It’s not as strange as it sounds. I’ll start by saying that, all my life, I’ve been more Posh Spice than Sporty Spice. I do not have […]

30 Days of Outfit Ideas: How to Style Black Jeans

January 20th, 2018 by

Like its frequent sidekick, the graphic tee, black jeans have a kind of cool, rocker girl vibe that has always intimidated me a little. After all, I consider myself good at many things (mom-ming, spelling, accessorizing) but being cool is not one of them. Even back in the day, when cool girls wore cool outfits […]
