Hold on to your hats, guys, because this one’s a doozy: Spanish retailer Mango has been forced to apologize for selling a “Lightning Print T-Shirt” because the lightning bolt design they used is the same one the Schuzstaffel wore when they, you know, protected Hitler and his cronies while terrorizing the citizens of Europe during the Third Reich.

Last week, we brought you 10 dresses you could wear as Halloween costumes that also happen to work for any old occasion on other days of the year. Still, there are plenty of you out there who can’t be bothered with a costume–or simply have no need–but will still be attending parties for the holiday weekend. We’re here with some helpful suggestions for seasonally-appropriate, subtly theme-y pieces that comprise 13 Awesome Looks for Your Grown-Up, Costume-Free Halloween Party. More
How did it get to be the middle of August? Days are suddenly shorter and nights are a little bit colder–but not quite enough to bring a jacket. So, unless you want to be carrying a cardigan everywhere you go, right now’s a really good time for a light, breezy summer sun dress, with a little extra protection from the new chill. That’s why today’s shopping guide brings you 15 dresses with sleeves in Summer-appropriate textures but with just a little bit of fabric to block those first dropped degrees. All under $150. More
A few weeks ago, we were walking by a nice boutique in our neighborhood and saw they were in the midst of a huge sale.

This is a long way of saying that our hands down favorite warm weather trend will be acid-trip Spring prints–which is a wide category that includes florals and abstract doodles and all manner of bright colors, all of which look a little off… like they’re melting?
Anyway, it’s an awesome look that can easily be achieved for less than our $150 price cap. Just don’t go wearing more than one of these babies at once (unless you want to look like a damn fashion blogger). More
Kate the Great gives a rare interview. Some call it “awkward,” but I think her nerves are endearing. More
We hate the idea of spending hundreds on a purse 1) you have to hold, 2) doesn’t carry much besides a credit card and keys and 3) you only need every once in a while. However, when that once in a while comes along–nice dinners, fancy work functions, charity events before we’re kicked out–our trusty, everyday, carry-all satchel won’t cut it. So, here’s our compromise: 15 cool, versatile clutches that won’t give you sticker shock. More
Here I am at the first day of NYFW in a rain coat with an umbrella… where it’s a sunny 76°F. No matter, thanks to Weather.com and its web of deceit, I’m in an appropriately gloomy (and sweaty!) mood to select some Fall jacket inspiration. More
Listen, it’s not so much that I don’t believe that this is ScarJo, because I totally do. But when she’s upside down like this, you would never know it’s her. It requires me turning my computer upside down and gazing … More

This weekend, I was on a cruise, and while it was fabulously fun – more on that soon – there was inclement weather that made it decidedly non-tropical. But at one point, I realized: Even if Hurricane Ida takes the … More
