Lily + Jae's spring/summer collection is so freaking cute it kinda kills me that i don't own every single dress, jumper, and button-down in it. What kills me even more is its sunshine daydreams of a lookbook. What I wouldn't give for a lakeside retreat in a vintage trailer. Click here to see all the summerific images. Be sure to check out our interview with Lily + Jae's super cool, down-to-earth designer Jude Feller in the new ish and keep an eye on her site...I ... Read More

There was so much hot fashion at SXSW this year. I had to take some shots of musicians, show-goers and generally inspiring ladies and dudes around town. It was a perfect storm for great outfits: sunny days, cool nights, and a music festival where anything goes. Continue reading to see more sassy styles!

It's easy to be seduced by nostalgia and lace, but in order to really fall in love I still need a bit of freshness added to the mix. By combining a bold and frequently strange color palette with exaggerated, romantic trimmings, ETSY seller Vintageopulence delivers in a major way.
Â Vintageopulence describes herself as a 'little British lady, now living happily and warm in the Southern United States.' Her etsy items are a combination of hand dyed and ... Read More

Since we're officially stranded in the gray purgatory between V-Day and spring (and all I want to do is hide under the covers, browse YouGrowGirl.com and wait for my daffodils to bloom), I'm drawn to anything floral--especially these sweet pieces by UK-based Sew Lovely. Designer Charlotte Alexandra's collection of jewelry and hair accessories bursts with blossoms, and nearly everything is well under $23. I can't wait to host a garden party in the Satin Petals ...

Everyone's been having fun hating on 'He's Just Not That Into You,' but I, for one, won't join in -- I'm just not that into hating on chick flicks (I've pointed out before that no one ever hates on dick flicks - like all those stupid video-game inspired films, etc).

I tend to get super nostalgic for the accoutrement of my youth (Feather earrings! Slap bracelets! Hypercolor!), so I was overjoyed to see a few versions of the classic 80s fan earring over at Fred Flare. These things were majorly coveted by my grade-school girlfriends, and only the most fashion-forward among us even dared wear them to class. Of course, back then fashion-forward meant gross, don't talk ... Read More

I found the inauguration to be inspiring, uplifting, and overall unforgettable. A lot of bars in my area will be rerunning it tonight and I can't wait to go out and experience the excitement all over again with friends. But even though every speech and performance was no doubt incredible, I have to admit that I was most excited by Aretha Franklin's hat. She rocks my ... Read More
