    Congratulations! You’ve made “the big chop," decided to go “natural," or you’re just looking to bring new love to your curls. Well the first thing you’re going to notice is it ain’t cheap! Seriously. In the summer of 2015, I made the decision finally do the big chop and go natural after years of abusing my curls with hair dryers and flat irons. After my Deva cut, I was recommended to try some Devacurl products. I purchased large bottles of their shampoo cleanser and conditioner, a curl cream,...
  New York Fashion Week is here, and the circus can just take a seat because I’d rather watch a runway than a dancing bear any day. Designers and retailers alike have begun to open their eyes to the outside world. Shocking as it may be, not everyone is white, under 20 years old, and thin! Here are some designers showing at this year’s New York Fashion Week to watch for feminist statements:1) Alice & Olivia  Tuesday, September 12th 11-1pm Photo via Aliceandolivia.com This brand made waves with political t-shirts...
Men’s fashion changed very little during the nineteenth century, especially when compared to women’s fashion of the same period. For this reason, I thought it better to provide a general overview of the century, looking at changes decade-by-decade as opposed to year-by-year. In this manner, you can see the slow evolution of nineteenth century menswear, from the Regency dandyism of Beau Brummell to the matched three-piece suits of the late Victorian era. Changes were subtle, but significant, each of them moving men’s fashion one step...
Later this week, the highly anticipated Fenty Beauty by Rihanna will drop, and we couldn’t be more excited. The fashion and music icon already dipped her toes into the retail industry when she collaborated with Puma for her own line of footwear and apparel. Now, she’s diving head first into the beauty realm with her own brand of makeup. Thanks to fan account, rihannabeautydaily, it’s been confirmed that the line will include over 40 shades of foundation for people of color. You know what that means? A broke...
For the next four days, I’m going to try out lipsticks from history. From The 1300s to the 1940s, I’ll be testing them all. On my lips... I’ll admit to being something of a lipstick junkie, to the extent I have a small chest of drawers to hold all my lip products (yes it’s an addiction, but it’s not meth — so back off!) But it’s not just me that’s obsessed with lipstick; it’s a trend that’s endured throughout history. Lipstick itself dates back to Queen Schub-ad...
The Mistress of Darkness herself, Elvira has a new clothing line with Pinup Girl that is the ultimate goth girl’s dream. Cassandra Peterson, the actress behind Elvira, made her line, Elvira for Couture for Every Body, because she wanted her clothing line to not only be sexy but to make every body type feel sexy. In an interview with LA Weekly, Elvira said, "I like sexy things and body-conscious stuff, which is why I like Pinup Girl." Pinup Girl carries sizes XS-4XL, which made them the perfect...

  When it comes to Victorian fashion, it is often difficult to choose a favourite year — or even a favourite decade. The romantic gowns of the 1830s vie with the enormous crinolines of the 1860s which, in turn, rival the sleek, bustled skirts of the 1870s. As someone who researches and writes extensively on historical fashion, choosing the year in which to set my new romance novel, The Lost Letter, had as much to do with the style of dress as it did with other...
