Vanity Fair & the Hollywood Issue

Yesterday, Vanity Fair debuted their 2013 Hollywood issue-a spread that seems to solidify which actors have made it that year, and who is sure to have a promising year ahead of them.  Despite the ticking clock that commences once an actor is labeled the new “it” girl/boy (those featured on the front of three panels are, […]

Shy by Sydney Evan

I recently received this Shy by Sydney Evan bracelet as a gift and love its understated elegance. Statement jewelry is really making the rounds currently, yet there’s something to be said for jewelry that is versatile and won’t wear with daily use.

Style Crush: Michelle Phillips

Along with Bianca Jagger, Anita Pallenberg, and Talitha Getty, Phillips is credited with bringing the bohemian style of the 60s and 70s to the masses.

Bold Brows

Every season fashion magazines seem to declare the return of the full eyebrow. Honestly, have they ever gone out of style, regardless of fleeting trends? A recent study analyzed eyebrow trends found on models and actresses in fashion magazines since 1946, and observed a resurgence in the last 60 years of thicker, more masculine brows.  […]
