  In honor of New York Fashion Week, ModCloth’s co-founder Susan Gregg Koger confronted the fashion industry with a letter about its skewed viewpoint. The online fashion company that uses independent designers and a wide assortment of vintage and unique pieces wants to remind their customers, and ladies everywhere, that fashion should instill confidence. “I look out, and it seems less about helping people find fashion they love to wear, and more about convincing them that they need to conform to one eerily consistent standard of beauty.

Check out Mad Men beauty January Jones sporting a pair in Los Angeles last week. She looks rad: A. Read More
There are various opinions on the day that is Valentine's Day, but me? I love it. I like hearts. I like candy. I like the color pink. I'm all for it. I'm also all for post-Valentine's Day candy sales (yum!). I think Valentine's Day is as good a day as any to spread a little love in the world, whether that means sending your bestie surprise macaroons from the macaroon queen, buying yourself a little "something something," spending quality time with your bf/gf, or just smiling to strangers a bit more (not in a creepy way).
