2014 Emmys: Fashion White Out

The biggest color on the red carpet was no color -- crisp, clean, pure white. Each of the celebs in white wore styles that embodied their personalities. Plus, the white provided a beautiful canvas to show off their makeup. From Robin Wright's powerful suit to Camila Alvez's romantic gown to Julianne Hough's stunning number, the variety offered something for everyone to adore. Personally, Julianne Hough wins my best-dressed vote, but I am a bit biased. Her look was a faint reminder of the dress I wore to my rehearsal dinner, which you'll see in the last slide. And for anyone who is planning on getting married, after seeing all of this gorgeousness on the carpet, I wouldn't be surprised if we see similar looks going down the bridal runways.

Every so often there comes a new product or accessory that editors devour. Right now, it's Flash Tattoos. It's pretty impossible to not see a photo of a trendsetter showing off hers on social media. These temporary tattoos are being worn as jewelery. We love how these glam, metallic designs look when they're layered on the wrist like a stack of bangles.

The Mighty Midi

Posted on Aug. 14, 2014

If you're one of those people who's already excited about getting out your sweaters and scarves, cool your jets. We've hardly had enough warm days to get through half of our summer wardrobe, so the least you can do is give us the pleasure of riding out the rest of the season. While you're busy fluffing your fleeces, I'll be walking around in my summer midis.

I've never been a black and white person; I'm all about the gray, which is no...

Posted on Aug. 11, 2014

Shopping for skincare is like searching for Mr. Right. We often fall for certain traits, but then we wish we could take bits and pieces from one and combine them with another to make the perfect companion. While I can't whip together the ideal mate, I have found the one in regard to skincare. Watch the video to meet your match. 


Sequins and Stripes (on Sale!)

Posted on Aug. 8, 2014

I was on a walk with my kids, and when I passed the boutique window, I saw this dress, or rather it saw me. It was screaming my name. The sparkles where twinkling in my eyes, the bow was begging to be wrapped around my body...the dress was me. It wasn't a choice to get it. I had to. I'm not an impulse buyer. In fact, I usually think of every reason as to why I shouldn't spend on myself. But when I saw this whimsical number, it was love...

It's that time of year when we start thinking about "back to school." With that comes the desire to clear out the old to make room for the new. It used to require a trip to the consigment shop or a garage sale to make a few bucks off your possessions. The latest trend -- online consignment -- requires the least amount of legwork and gets your goods in front of the most amount of eyeballs so you can earn the biggest payday.

We all wish our skin was as soft as a baby's. But what about when your baby's skin doesn't fit the cliche? My 15-month-old Jasper is the most adorable pudge ball (in my eyes anyway), and while his milky skin is smooth in most areas, it's bumpy on his thighs, the back of his arms and on the sides of his cheeks. It so happens that Jasper has a very common skin condition called Keratosis Pilaris, and a textbook case usually appears in those 3...
