I know everyone gives her a hard time for being negative, but certain things call for negativity. More
Is Michelle Obama one of your fashion icons? That’s pretty normal. Michelle Obama does a spectacular job of blending high and low pieces, and integrating some neat pops of color into traditional styles. She’s generally very intelligent about how she presents herself.
So, perhaps you want to do that a bit more yourself! Or perhaps you want to dress exactly like her. Just wear every single outfit she wears, one after the other, and see how long it takes your friends to notice. Maybe they will never notice. More
During the most recent NYFW shows, Marc Jacobs unsurprisingly cast celebrity-progeny-of-the-moment (non-Tali Lennox divison) Lily McMenamy to walk for his Fall 2013 collection. While we were really into the gritty glam-rock aesthetic of the clothes, we couldn’t help but feel McMenamy (daughter of supermodel Kristen McMenamy) was a little jipped.* While she got to don some high-waisted shorts, pumps and fishnet gloves, she didn’t get a single additional piece, and hit the runway holding her own breasts. That’s her up there, in case your powers of deduction are lacking (or you didn’t go to Princeton). 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. We walked in and walked out with an amazing pair of trousers–a boyish, sensible cut in an insane print. They’ve been sitting in our closet since, slowly biding their time until the weather warms up.
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

These are the worst, and I am sincerely angry that this pair of pants exists. More
Searching for some info on Fashion Week but not sure where to look? No need to fret: we’ve got you covered with a whole lot of info from all your favorite sources. More
We’re so excited about Beyonce: Life Is But A Dream, by the way. We understand it’s actually a daring, lucid reimagining of The Tempest starring Beyonce as Prospero, Jay-Z as Ariel and Kanye West as Caliban (Kim Kardashian will provide comic relief, playing both Stefano and Trinculo). The magic of showbiz! More

Why you should stop calling dinner jackets “tuxedos.” Maybe. More
If you’ve been paying much attention to the fashion press lately, you probably know all about oxblood. The dark, wine-ish shade of red has been dominating runways for a season or two now, at Gucci, YSL, Valentino, Alexander Wang, Alexander McQueen, Acne, Miu Miu and more (it’s also all over red carpets, especially as beauty). For those of you who can’t go out and drop a few grand on a trend-straddling McQueen frock coat, though, we’ve got a few more affordable options (and some aspirational pieces to oogle too). More
Okay, look: printed jeans (and cords and trousers) are verging on annoying trend territory (maybe not far off trends-that-need-to-die territory) but the fact of the matter is… we love them. We love them a lot. They are surprisingly versatile, incredibly easy to style–a solid color top and cool ankle boots, you say?–and they look so fresh. Which is to say, even if they seem dated in six months, we won’t care because we’ll still be wearing them. Here’s a bunch of good ones, starting at $24.80 and topping out around $400. More
In honor of National Pumpkin Cheesecake Day, we thought we’d conduct a little informal research and find out what else you’re putting pumpkin in. Turns out you’re getting pretty creative: there’s way more than the standard pie or latte on this list. More
We sometimes think of fashion faux pas as being along the lines of “wearing a mesh dress to meet the Pope.” To that I say, “Pope jokes are pretty fun.” But we’re not going to share any here! Instead we’re going to talk about the 6 fashion missteps that every woman has taken at some point, whether in Uggs or not (feel free to share yours). More
