The Plus-Size Garment Every Curvy Girl Needs

The Plus-Size Garment Every Curvy Girl Needs Long one of the most polished and elegant pieces in women’s fashion history, the pencil skirt has always been relevant. Part of its charm is in its versatility and ability to flatter any figure. It’s the answer to your corporate “what to wear” woes when you’re sick of pantsuits, yet it also fits in nicely if you’re headed to a date or have an impromptu event to attend. The best part? Your pencil skirt is also a fabulous tool for negotiating your curve...

The popular travel pants that are forcing the fashion industry to make comfort a priority

For the longest time, the Fashion Design Industry eluded the entire approach of designing through problem-solving. Infamously enough, the fashion business is known for setting trends, creating aesthetics, and developing styles, but not solving problems… why else would women’s pants still not have pockets? (P.S. The real answer is so that women continue to buy purses. Create pockets and purse sales will immediately tank.)The minute you ask the public what they want in the clothes they wear, the...

Thinking About Getting a REALLY Short Chop For Summer? Taylor Schilling Will Convince You

If you're looking for some short-hair inspiration, turn to Taylor Schilling. The actress recently got a cut that took her blond hair from short to shorter, and we think it's the shortest she's ever gone. Her blunt chop with wispy layers is courtesy of hairstylist Ryan Trygstad and rests just about an inch below her ears, and it looks impeccable with both a middle part and a side part. The Orange Is the New Black star has been making her rounds in NYC and LA promoting her new comedy, Family, so ...

In case you haven't heard, coral-colored hair is Summer's hottest new trend, and it's safe to say that it's the absolute prettiest thing we've ever seen.

These Gradient Nail Looks Will Give You Hot, Steamy, Summer Vibes

There's one trend you've probably been seeing across the hands of your favorite celebrities: gradient manicures. The trend involves creating an ombré effect on your nail, fading from one color into the next, or, in many cases, into the natural nail. The trend is super versatile and can involve just one shade of polish, or as many as can fit on your nail bed. While some lovers of the trend wear it on just a few nails, others opt to have it across all 10 fingers. While the look is high-impact, t...

The Coolest Beauty Trends From Coachella You'll Want to Wear Year-Round

advice on having kids

It has been a long time since I have posted in here. Just got busy with life and all. But some big things have been happening, like we have started talking about having kids.

A lot of what ifs...like what if I'm not a good parent, what if I can't handle that stress, what if we can't have kids and it takes longer that we thought.My husband is very supportive and k...

Alison Brie Dyed Her Hair For a New Role, and Wow, Is It Different

Alison Brie just dyed her hair blond for a role in a horror movie, and we hope both the new look and her character survive. Brie was cast as a lead character in her husband Dave Franco's The Rental. The film, which will be Franco's directorial debut, was the main reason Brie went for the lighter hue. She posted a photo of herself with the new hairstyle with the caption, "When your husband asks you to 'go blonde' for a role...you say yes," and tagged hairstylist Clarissa Anya. Though we've seen B...

Knotless Box Braids Are All Over Instagram - Here's What They Are

Every few months or so, I can always count on a new hair or beauty trend to take over my Instagram feed for an indefinite period of time. At one point it was faux dreadlocks, then crochet braids, and now I haven't been able to scroll without seeing at least a handful of knotless box braids. As you might have guessed already, knotless box braids are another variation of box braids. The difference is that, unlike box braids, these don't include the small knot that sits at the root of the scalp bec...

You Can Get Halsey's Light-Catching Coachella Makeup at the Drugstore

Everything was blue . . . and green . . . and yellow on Halsey's eyelids. It wasn't surprising that the "Colors" singer had plenty of them brushed onto her lids this past weekend at Coachella, since many of her past beauty looks integrated bright hues. What was shocking, however, was that her prismatic eye makeup was created with drugstore products. Makeup artist Denika Bedrossian mainly used Nyx Professional Makeup on Halsey. First, she created a gradient using the green and yellow shades of th...

7 Piercings Our Editors Are Getting For Spring

Call us fickle, but we can't help but itch for change when the seasons shift. Since the turn of the spring equinox, we've considered dyeing our hair a trendy shade of "sunlight brunette," ditching our winter polish for a fishy manicure, or swapping our cat-eye flicks for floating crease eyeliner.
