Borrowed from the Girls


In fashion, the expression "borrowed from the boys" is used ad nauseam to describe boy-meets-girl looks, while "borrowed from the girls" (or the like) is not nearly as ubiquitous. (For proof, just search Google here.) But my ever fashion-forward husband Kevin is out to change that. 

Last month, I was approached by Firmoo.com to review a pair of sunglasses from their website. Firmoo.com is a global online optical store that is best known for their affordable frames and renewed First Pair Free Program. I selected a pair of black-and-white ombré frames to try... and my beau immediately swiped them from me upon their arrival. He may look innocent in the above photos, but don't let the sweet half-smile fool you!




Perhaps needless to say, Firmoo's sturdy, stylish frames suit men and women alike. Here's to borrowing from the girls, man friends!

If you know me - or have been in the same room as me for about five minutes - then you know that I love ice cream. Not just love ice cream; I adore ice cream. From it's ooey-gooey consistency to its creamy deliciousness, to the fact that I can top it with pretty much any hard candy, soft candy or liquid candy I desire, I think ice cream is the best kind of sweet treat. In fact, I so love ice cream that my very first job was as a soda jerk at an ice cream parlor. So naturally, as a resident of the City of Brotherly Love for the past few years, I've scoured every inch of Philadelphia in search of the perfect scoop. See my favorites in my latest post for Girl Around Town

And in other exciting news, BELLA NYC magazine just released the digital version of their July/August summer issue featuring cover girl Laura Prepon. See my work as the magazine's Fashion Director in the issue's fashion spreads and "Style Report".

I hope you enjoy!

Safari Style, Part II

Earlier this week, I chronicled the history of safari-inspired clothes and accessories. Today, I'm showing you how to rock the safari trend the 2014 way.

This season, safari-inspired clothes are casual yet polished, made of luxurious, lightly-colored fabrics that will help keep you the cool in the hot summer sun. Add some punch to these neutral garments with jewelry and accessories in rich earth tones. Whether you're going on a month-long quest or just a journey through your backyard, you'll look effortlessly stylish and chic -- just like the safari-wearing fashionistas of yore.
