Trend: Tassled

Whether you are more schoolgirl or more librarian, or just plain geek-chic this fall’s resurgence of loafers has us lusting after tassels. Throw these soles on with a pair of sexy tights or some knee-highs and a pleated mini. Maybe even add a pussy-bow blouse to get you ready to head to campus or the office this September. 1.

Cones – Not Just For Ice Cream

When it comes to heels, wedges conjure up visions of walking across dry grass in summer. Chunky heels conjure up visions of trudging across wet city streets in winter. But cone heels can only mean one thing: spring has sprung! Cone heels are more feminine than the clunky furniture-disguised-as-shoes that we stomp along in, and less ankle-shattering than the needle-thin, 6-inch stilettos we bravely risk wearing. They are the perfect balance of pretty and practical. Plus unlike... Read More

WTF Wednesday! Teva Stilettos?

If you’re thinking about camping in style this summer, grab your favorite pair of WigWam warm socks and strap your feet into a comfy pair of Teva’s and–enter record scratching halt–WTF??? Please tell us this is some kind of “I got high and as a joke decided to screw with people” type of situation. Unless this is 1999 and we are smoking a Philly blunt while playing hacky-sack in the high school courtyard, we need to pull our jaw off the... Read More

Obsessed: Shoe Wish List

I am in spring-clean mode these days. It’s early I know, but it’s ridiculously cold outside and I’m a bit housebound. So I decided to pack up all the soles I’m not getting enough wear out of, in preparation for an eBay selling spree. Next I decided to pack up the ones I’ve been getting too much wear out of and as a result, are now ruined from pounding the NYC pavement. Next step, rebuild the now gaping hole in my closet. What I’m looking for is a well-rounded group... Read More

Never-Fail Classics

There are some things some of us can’t live without. Our Fashion Director Desiree, for instance, always has a section of her closet devoted to anything sparkly or shiny. Our other Fashion Director, Samara, has a stash of body-con dresses that always get a ton of play. While such pieces may be be classics for some, there are certain items that will always be classics for everyone. The trench is a tireless example of a 3-season coat that never loses its power of polish. A great,... Read More

Fendi Shoes, Spring 2011

I play this game with a friend of mine called “If You Could Only Wear One Designer” (Not like we could actually afford to buy out a whole collection of anything in the first place, but whatever.) Right now I will absolutely say with no hesitation that this designer is Fendi. If I had the means to buy the entire Spring ‘11 collection, I swear I would never partake in the “I have nothing to wear” debacle, or at least not until July, when Fall ‘11 starts to trickle into... Read More

Take A Bow

Louis Vuitton set the stage for the debutante-lady’s return with calf grazing skirts, prim finished framed bags and the much-lusted-after pointy-toed, bow pump. Not everyone can pull off the longer skirt length, nor the perfectly primped look of a sweater set with pearls that’s somewhere between 16 candles and Audrey Hepburn. But we are pretty sure that no one can resist a pretty bow on the toe. It shows a sense of style and a sense of humor. This Holiday choose a... Read More

Girl Crush: Kiera Knightly

It seems almost silly we’re telling you and the cyber-universe that we have a girl crush on Keira Knightley. Who doesn’t have a crush on her?  Long hair, short hair, lots of make up, no make up, tomboy, sex siren, she always looks amazing because she always looks so much like, well, herself.  Take a look at Ms. Knightly promoting her latest flick, Never Let Me Go.  Three really different, super fashion-y outfits, yet she never seems to get lost in the clothes or fall prey... Read More
