Worth It?

I've been lusting over the Stuart Weitzman 5050 OTK boots & I decided to take the plunge. But I also got a pair of Nine West Over-the-Knee Boots. So...the splurge or the steal? Are Stuart Weitzman's 5050 boots worth the price?
I can't tell you how long I've been lusting after these Stuart Weitzman 5050 Over-the-Knee Boots. It's been years, my friends... years. That price tag, though... I mean, I've bought what I consider to be "expensive" boots before, but they've always been on crazy sale (or on eBay). But the reviews are soooo good. Aaand that's pretty much been...
Enter: the sexy turtleneck sweater. It's warm, it's comfy, it's just a *little* sexy. It's an easy way to show some skin & it comes in a bunch of colors.
When you live somewhere as cold as I do, you need to come up with...creative ways to pull off a "sexy" winter look. (Ha. Sexy and winter.) I used to wear little sequin dresses when we'd go out and just commit to freezing, but...yeah, I'm not doing that anymore (going out, that is -- wearing sequin dresses will never...
EBY, which stands for Empowered By You, is much more than incredibly soft & pretty underwear (though, it’s totally that, too). It’s a mission.
“You have just joined the coolest, most diverse, most empowering girl-gang in existence.” Woah. Those are the words that immediately caught my eye as I was opening up a (gorgeous) new shipment of underwear. EBY, which stands for Empowered By You, is so much more than incredibly soft and pretty underwear (though, it’s totally that, too). It’s a mission. And the...
Over the years I've tweaked my base uniforms into a range of outfits, but if you look closely...I'm a serial outfit repeater. Think: straight-leg Levi's jeans + these must-haves.
Ultimately, I'm a pretty boring gal, fashion-wise. I tend to find my uniform and wear it to death. In the winter, it's a black turtleneck and jeans, in the summer it's a linen Reformation dress, and in the fall (or spring) when the temps are wildly fluctuating, I tend to flop around with a random assortment of pieces until...
Even more intriguing is the fact that Loeffler Randall's Gia Safari Tall Boots look to be a solid dupe of Prada's Knee-High Boots (but at half the cost), as well as...J.Crew? Is that YOU?
I've been searching for a new tall boot. My ultimate pick is one in a rich camel tone, with a low, walkable heel, and a soft leather that won't irritate my skin. I need a pair of tall boots that work especially well with dresses and skirts, but can work with the odd pair of jeans, too. I...
This post has been updated for 2021. I've always had issues with cardigans -- long cardigans especially. I'm too petite and most cardigans are too oversized, or long for my frame. But last winter I decided to go for a cropped cardigan instead and during a Naadam sale, I took the plunge and ordered this Naadam Cashmere Ribbed Cropped Cardigan....
I'll wear this luxe, belted cashmere cardigan for years. So versatile. I've styled 'em with jeans, shorts, trousers, leggings, maxi dresses, mini dresses, midi dresses...So. Here are 8 ways I'm planning to wear this 1.
I don't usually get excited over cardigans. However!! J.Crew juuuust dropped a long, belted cardigan (in 100% cashmere, no less) that is *exactly* the cardigan I've been looking for. Not only is it made from a cashmere that has been certified by the Aid by Trade Foundation (AbTF ensures the welfare of the cashmere goats, protects natural resources, improves the...
Danner hiking boots, in addition to their durability, stability, longevity, waterproofing & comfort...are cute. The stylish factor is a main reason we love 'em.
I bought my Danner Mountain Light hiking boots in 2016, in preparation for a trip. We were taking our two young boys to Iceland and had planned to do it up: explore towns, see natural wonders (read: waterfalls) and do a ton of hiking. Ideally, I needed a hiking boot that was waterproof...but one that wasn't overly heavy or...
Hiking in near-constant drizzle is infinitely more comfortable when your legs stay dry. So when The North Face debuted a new version of my old Apex Flex jacket – ‘Futurelight’ — + a pair of waterproof hiking pants, I had to try.
A huge thank you to Backcountry and Shopstyle for sponsoring this post! I learned the value of waterproof hiking pants on our trip to Iceland, oh gosh...five years ago now? I didn't arrive in Iceland with waterproof hiking pants — quick-dry leggings are almost as good, right? — but after a few days of consistently wet legs, I became the...
Perfect black pants? EILEEN FISHER's The System. The silk joggers make for cool, breezy, polished outfits. No wrinkles, machine-washable, sustainable, available in plus-size.
Two years ago, I did a review of EILEEN FISHER's simplified capsule wardrobe, called The System. I reviewed a boxy silk shell (a v-neck version is in-stock here), a pair of Audrey-Hepburn-esque crepe pants, and these slouchy silk joggers. At the time, my nod went to the crepe pants as 'the favorite'. But that review came out in December...
