Spring is the greatest season of the year because everyone knows that transition-weather dressing is practically a euphemism for wearing fashion clothes (or in other words, layers that are futile but look cool) and even though this happens in the fall, too, you know what happens after fall? Winter. You know what winter does to a person? Nothing good. So here I propose three outfits to wipe your memory clean of snow boots, starting with a slip dress that may or may not make you look pregnant.
It is 8:45 a.m. on Friday, March 4th and I’ve just woken up feeling more proud than the father of little league champion because I am sure that I have beaten jet lag. The best part of this realization is that while my eyes are opening, Abie!, exclusive brand partner in procreation and recreation has just arrived in France with my childhood blanket. (The blanket’s name is E.E., like E.E. Cummings, but that is purely coincidence.) While he unpacks, I take my computer downstairs to the
Popularly held belief: New Year’s Eve is both overrated and overpriced (I paraphrased this sentiment from Entourage’s Ari Gold). Unfortunate fact in spite of the above: We still make plans and waste money and wake up feeling especially let down by the expectations we set at a bar so high that not even Lebron James could dunk on them. New theory: In spite of the fact that intellectually, we know that New Year’s Eve is the overwhelming manifestation of exactly the kind of
Mode is back with another installment of their popular '100 Years' video series. This time, we get a look at 11 dapper decades of New Year's Eve style – from 1915 to today. The toast-worthy looks begin in ultra-gentlemanly fashion with tails and a top hat. As the century progresses, the tails disappear and the jackets get daring. A white jacket rules in 1925, bold burgundy velvet takes the stage in 1935, and bright blue is the star of 1965. The 1970s look... well... that's one you have to s...
Thigh high boots are like a cashew in that they trick their consumers into thinking they’re one thing (a nut when they’re really a fruit, a practical shoe decision when they’re anything but), then following use they pose the philosophical question of: Huh? As in, did I really just eat 51 cashews a.k.a. 51 individual fruits, or am I emulating Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman during the former half of that movie, and is that an acceptable role to play through the motions of my
Sure, it’s still November but there is no such thing as too early. Consider items already in your clothes that jam at both your desk and your party. Destiny’s Child did not intend “Survivor” to be a post-Holiday anthem (nor did Mariah Carey, I am almost sure, intend for her Christmas jingle to become the pinnacle of her career), but from the time you put away your last Halloween decoration until the morning after you shout “Happy New Year!,” The Holidays
Today, Sydney's Opera House hosted the prestigious 2015 Australian Fashion Laureate Awards, honouring outstanding creative or intellectual achievement in the Australian fashion industry. The winner of the coveted Australian Fashion Laureate Award for 2015 was former Vogue editor, Nancy Pilcher. In the running for the Australian Fashion Laureate Award were a cross-section of Australian fashion greats including designers Alex Perry, Camilla & Marc and Toni Maticevski, IMG's Jarrad Clark...
Dion Horstmans is a giant in the art world - both in the physical sense and through his vigorous artwork which has graced everything from designer pads to Sculptures by The Sea and eighty-five metres of Melbourne’s Collins Square. The Sydney-based artist and sculptor is far from slowing down though. By his own accord, if he wasn’t locked away in his Marrickville warehouse bringing his unique ideas to life six days a week, he’d be dead. “That’s all I know, that’s all I want. I’m... ↬ Click
We were recently invited by the Zoe Report to a super fun get together hosted by Hannah Bronfman – DJ, Beauty Queen, Fitness Guru and face of Clinique’s #faceforward campaign. The panel was at E.P. & L.P. in WeHo, where we got to hang out with a rad group of 6 other beauty and fashion bloggers to chat about life, swap some silly stories and talk about the Clinique 3-step program. HTL and Clinique go waaaaay back…coincidentally it was our very first skin care regimen when we
Don’t correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t know if we’ve ever seen a single bandage dress on The Daily Show, and the show ran through the entirety of the 2000s. What other late-night show can say it never saw Herve Leger as a repeat guest in effigy? What is it about The Daily Show that prompts its celebrity guests to dress down when they’d otherwise sex it up a little? At its heart, it’s a show about how the news does its business, but The Daily Show has played the
