5 Nude Pieces For All Skin Tones

Christian Louboutin Christeriva

Today is national nude day, so there is no better time to acknowledge that the fashion industry has a nude problem. I remember shopping for nude pumps when they were the “it shoe” a few years back and laughing out loud by myself in the Saks Fifth Avenue Shoe Salon aka shoe perv paradise. Not one pair of shoes was anywhere close to the color of my skin, and I looked like an idiot. Not everyone is beige. Designers and…

5 Best Sales This Weekend

This post actually started out as something else entirely, but I realized that there was actually a fresh crop of amazing sales this weekend, not just – ahem – one. For the first time in a long time, I actually included a live-in-person sale because it’s just that good and it doesn’t even require in-store shopping (though perhaps that’s preferable given this absurd heat wave we’re experiencing over here on the East Coast). Without further ado, here are the 5…

10 Best Bikinis This Season

Today is National Bikini Day! Ah, the bikini: symbol of so many things for us. As I started this post, I thought back on a conversation I had at a local Sephora. The woman who was helping me struck up a conversation with me about pregnancy (as one often does with a pregnant person) which ultimately digressed into a conversation about body image. She said, “I love my son so much, but don’t you hate how you can’t ever wear…

10 Best Fourth Of July Sales

Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Special Fit Sunglasses

Happy Fourth of July week! This holiday is extra special for us because my first son, Bear, was born on July 4, 2015. I actually listened to the East River fireworks while I pushed and he entered the world. He really doesn’t want us to slack like we did last year because of our trip to Greece, so he has been telling us “I turn TWO ON TUESDAY.” I seriously cannot believe he is going to be two years old.…

Five Favorite Sunglasses Right Now

Wildfox Twiggy Sunglasses

Happy national Sunglasses Day! At this point, I wouldn’t just say that sunglasses are my favorite accessory. It’s safe to say that I am a collector. I think of sunglasses are practical, wearable art. They protect our peepers from harmful UV rays, which contribute to a number of degenerative eye diseases and crows feet. My mother told me this from an early age, so I began wearing John Lennon style frames, then moved to cat eyes, then aviators, and I’d…
