Aug 28, 2013  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

There are some things that only experience can bring to the table. All of the natural talent in the world, while great, can’t make up for the know-how of having already done it.

Dea Rosa Zefyros Clutch in Sexy Snakeskin

Aug 20, 2013  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

I hardly ever wear snake print. It reminds me vaguely of the Britney Spears performance where she danced with a live boa constrictor at the 2001 VMA’s—and there was nothing fashionable about that. But even now and then a designer comes along with a fresh take on a print, or just a touch of trim—something demure that makes me stop and think maybe python could be exotic again, fun and fashionable before Britney came along with her reptilian striptease....

Berry Brown Pairs Everyday Function With Vintage Fashion

Aug 12, 2013  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Something fun, sleek, big enough to carry the kitchen sink or at the very least our iPads.

Get The Look: This Season Mid is In

Aug 6, 2013  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Mid heel shoes are in. You can keep your statuesque stilettos and bejeweled flats, but mid is the new fashion favorite. It’s somewhere between still flattering your legs, adding height and being able to walk. They’re wearable, fun and oh-so-very hot. While you may be clinging to your five inch platforms, some of us are more than thrilled, (yours truly is a staggering six feet in height and is currently praising the fashion gods). So drop those shoes, (it’s not like you can walk in them anyway) and try one of these mid heels on for size.... Read More
