SHOW YOURSELF SOME LOVE: Lauren

Lauren, 21. “I love my mix of being caring and creative but also having a tomboy side. Unrelated, at 5’9, I love my height.”

Pick Of The Week

I first stumbled upon these sweats while meeting with one of my boys at Jugrnaut. I own numerous versions of the Nike sneakerwedge, and I always throw them on to complete my look. These crazy sweats would look great with all black wedges, and a basic white tank. I am all about cool comfort with an edge. Dress them up with a black leather…

Wang warns that these might not work for everyone’s…

Chiberia

Winter is in full force, and lately, has not been showing any mercy. Along with the frigid conditions comes many, many layers of shirts, sweaters, and jackets. Last week, my friend and I ventured out to brunch at Fred’s at Barney’s New York. There is nothing I hate more than dusting off my puffy, unflattering, knee length North Face, so I have avoided it…

Phones and Fingers

With technology at the tips of our fingers 24/7, skimping out on a well dressed IPhone is not an option. Think of your phone as an accessory. You would never wear a rubber studded shirt, so why would that go on your phone? If you paid $200 for your little baby, you better take care of it. Here are five fun case options, along…

In a Pinch? Last Minute NYE Picks

December 2013 More often than not, we let ourselves get so busy planning for a big event, that we forget the most important thing: what to wear. If you are currently thinking, “Yup!” then I have a solution for you. Sometimes, it’s best to stick with a tried and true piece you already know looks killer, and then build upon that.
