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.  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 refinished vintage lingerie as well as...

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 necklace...you know, once I actually plant that garden...

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). But at least that movie went to the theaters. Why is it that 'Spring Breakdown,' starring Amy Poehler, Parker Posey, Amber Tamblyn, and Rachel Dratch (who co-wrote the script!) has still not been released, being held...

           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 to her so my nostalgia might be a little misplaced. Whatever. (Left: Versailles Fan Earrings. Right: Antoinette Fan...

Aretha's hat sweeps the nation. ...

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 world. ...

Not only is TopShop finally coming to America, but they have an official date! That 'Opening Fall 2008' sign has toyed with my emotions for years now. Ever since I went to London a few years ago, I have literally been hoping to have TopShop here, everyday. Sure, I could have ordered online many times, but there is nothing quite like trying something on, or getting first dibs on celeb-designed lines or even snagging some in-store-only sales. Not only are they coming to NYC, but they...

(Photos by Amanda Jaffe ) So Saturday, I visited the UnBridaled Expo , despite my absolute lack of interest in all things bridal. You should believe me when I say that getting married is the furthest thing from my plans these days, yet I spent my morning trying on jewelry, scoping out bamboo undies, and best of all, watching a fashion show of eco-friendly local designers' work, modeled by the Philly Roller Girls! Check out more photos below the jump. Violet Temper Mo Pain Ida Bangder I want this ring. The Expo...
