As a fashion editor, I’ve found that my friends routinely use me as a trusted source for sartorial guidance. Basically, I’m often one of the first people they text when they’re on the fence about a particular item or want help identifying the latest trend to try.
One of my very good friends recently asked me for advice on some of the best oversize blazers because she wanted to add some relaxed tailoring into her wardrobe. I sent over three options (including this $75 Nordstrom pick). I also sent her a few other spring items I’m loving that I knew she’d be into.

I also scrolled through some of my favorite sites to uncover a smattering of other chic items that piqued my interest.

With so many pressing things happening in the world, it’s fair to say that rehauling my wardrobe hasn’t been a main priority.
But, the spirit of summer has a way of reinvigorating our style senses, and now I’m thoroughly committed to revamping my warm-weather wardrobe. To get out of my style slump I’ve been shopping for statement … Read the rest

They often joined together, as in the case of Bacon’s Rebellion (1676) to oppose the strict and oppressive laws of the colonial government.

The 2000s are back, baby. As you may recall, it was an era defined by low-rise pants, fuzzy pink everything, and AOL instant messenger. (Do you remember your first screen name or are you normal?)
