They say that we have a tendency to change our hair when we’re desperate for a change or when something super stressful happens – like a breakup. I concur. I’ve sported so many different hairstyles and hair colors that I’ve lost count. Life gets too stressful? I run to my hairdresser. New Year? New hair! […]

YouTube is our new go-to for what to watch late night, weekends or in our cab stuck in traffic. There has lately been an influx of beauty gurus and fashion lookbooks to lose ourselves in. It is like a deep dark hole that sucks you in, 20 videos later, and 3 hours have passed and […]

If you haven’t noticed already this winter, everything is oversized from scarves to denim. I have never been the one to wear anything two sizes (if not more) bigger. I stay away usually because it typically will overwhelm the body. Yet, here I find myself loving the super oversized chunky knit sweaters. I admittedly gave […]

The longer the lashes the better. False lashes are the latest must have accessory. From super long and luscious to winged out on just the edges they are a must have. Not only are they super glam, they will seriously change your look. Long lashes open the eyes and instantly give them a lift. Jenna […]

Finding new cool fashion brands is my thing. When I started my boutique in 2004 that was a major focus for me. They needed to be fresh and stylish. Over the years I have continued to discover designers to support. Three brands I recently came across are Dyspnea, Hot-as-Hell and Milin. An Australian designer Dyspnea, is […]

When I had my clothing line I was inspired by modern women. I called them the Modern Day Warrior Princesses. To me, that means today’s girl. She is the definition of a modern woman and as such is: Confident Dynamic Humane Compassionate Unstoppable Unlike the generation of our mothers, grandmothers and the women before them, […]

So I have been seeing these uneven hem jeans for months. It started heavy around fashion week in September. Even spotted a girl at Paris Fashion Week in a pair of bright yellow boots and the uneven hem denim. There has been a flood of these photos ever since. In my more youthful years, I […]

What female doesn’t love to take care of their skin? There is a vast marketplace out there for skin care products, and we eat it up. We love to have soft, supple skin and if we can smell good while rocking good skin, it’s even better! Unfortunately, in a lot of those lovely purple and […]

Written By : Harper Spero In high school, when I babysat, I saved all of my money to buy the newest MAC Cosmetics eye shadow. On Saturday afternoons, my friends and I’d take the Third Avenue bus up to Bloomingdales on 59th Street and scope out the latest colors – Sketch, Swish, Tilt and Silver Ring. […]

I’ve been following Bebe Rexha for a while now. She is one of those artist that just catches your attenti0n. Most people don’t know she has been making music for years, for top artist like Eminem and RiRi’s  “The Monster” and David Guetta‘s “Hey Mama” . I remember way back when I first saw a Britney […]

As I pack for my upcoming birthday trip to London (and this trip is a bit of a sensitive subject, as my last few birthdays have been sent spectacularly sideways by the boyfriend of the particular moment) I am absentmindedly scrolling through my closet while re-living past birthdays.  Scrolling through my favorite pieces it occurs […]

Let’s talk about the “art of dressing up” a.k.a “personal style” and its cathartic properties, because fashion is so much more than acquisition of material goods and inclination to show off one’s societal status. It’s so, so, so much more than that. If anything – it’s definitely a therapeutic vehicle of self-expression and an art […]

What size are you? The most common question asked when trying on clothing.

Drake said it best in his song Over. It may at first sound selfish, but it is the essence of more love and happiness in your life and the world. “Do you boo” in all your glory. Wear what you feel incredible in. Get fit for your health. Go live big. Cliche as it may […]

In terms of body posi IG pages, unless you’re living under a rock, chances are you follow our girls @IAmIskra, @NourishAndEat, @ItsRachaelForster, @TheAshleyGraham, @CrystalRenn, etc. Surrounding yourself with body love can be a great way to take back the power that “thinspiration” pages and body bullies have attempted to take away. Here are just a […]

So many trends have come and gone during this fashion month but one trend that I would like to die immediately? Embellished crocs. While some of you may wear them because they are comfortable, or think that they are a nice orthopedic shoes, they never have and never will serve the purpose of being stylish. […]

The one thing I’ve realized in analyzing all of the fast fashion retailers we love, is that they are really horrible for the environment! Making clothes at such a fast pace, and with the cheapest materials isn’t exactly the best formula for making clothing that doesn’t harm our environment. Next to oil, fashion is the […]

Remember when we were upset about the dreadlocks controversy at Marc Jacobs? Well here’s a legitimate reason why. The U.S. Court of Appeals recently decided that hairstyles are not “immutable traits” making it even harder for women of color to wear their hair how they want in the workplace, in fear that they will get […]

So. Much. Yes. We absolutely LOVE Christian Siriano’s work (totally evidenced by this article), but we also love his body inclusivity. This is major that he was named to the Top 25 Best Red Carpet designers. Hollywood Reporter did a spotlight on Siriano calling his work the top in “feel-good fashion.” While that may be […]

Usually, high fashion magazines put the same old, same old on the covers. Even if the actress hasn’t been in a movie in ages, or doesn’t seem to particularly have anything interesting going on, if she’s mainstream approved, she gets a cover. So how refreshing is it to see Tracey Africa, fashion’s first African-American transgender […]

Remember when we praised H&M for having Ashley Graham in their Studio Collection ads and not making a big deal out of it? While the clothing wasn’t sold in stores, it was still a big step for a curve woman to the face of a non-curvy fashion line. Unfortunately today ABC has reported that H&M […]

Award shows are pretty much a snooze these days to me because it’s so predictable who the winners are going to be, and usually it really just depends on the year to get a really good mix of celebrities and movies and television shows represented. Luckily, this year’s Emmys happened to be one of the […]

You know how you see pregnant women walking down the street sometimes and you think to yourself, “I will be that fabulous when I’m preggo.” Yeah, Kerry Washington was that human being last night.

As the Daily Mail reported this weekend, Paola Torrente, the model who was runner up in the Miss Italy pageant, is being body shamed by a cruel internet troll.

YouTube beauty blogger Rachel Levin just posted a beautiful video reminding us to be conscious of how we talk about our selves and our own bodies.

According to the London Evening Standard, models are fed up with London Fashion Week’s body standards.

This week E! Online reported that, in an interview for October’s W magazine, Halle Berry explained that she was turned down roles due to her good looks.
