I always used to think lace was a fabric that could only be pulled off in certain situations. A nice dinner or a wedding, perhaps.
• PR tells guests not to bring ugly friends to party. • Oprah is Blue Ivy's godmother. • Netflix is going downhill fast. • Ashton not concerned with Demi Moore. • Add a little lace to your look • Kim K just followed her heart!
At some point in the last few months, I started to actively like Olivia Wilde. She's refreshingly honest and doesn't try to present herself as being absurdly free of flaws. She actually seems like someone I would meet in real life. Gorgeous and well put together, but has probably splashed her Starbucks latte on her shirt more than once and stumbles in her five inch heels like everyone else (or maybe I'm just projecting...).
It's just... SJP could feasibly be my mother. I would not want my mother going out in something like this. Don't get me wrong, it's a gorgeous dress. I love the lace, I love the white (who says you can't wear white after Labour Day?!), I love how she has accessorized with a big floral piece (very Carrie), but I just don't think it's...well...appropriate.
It's the end of the year and as you start packing up your stuff to head home for the summer, you might notice the effect the dryer has had on your undies. Yes, after a year of industrial dryers your delicates are probably looking a little frayed and a lot tattered.

One of the hottest colors for 2011, whether it's for fashion or home decor, is navy. With the popularity of nautical inspired pieces the last few seasons, there's a good chance you already own something in this dark shade of blue.
Dresses are usually the go-to item when getting ready for a night out on the town. And for good reason! They're cute, they're sexy and there's nothing easier than slipping on a dress and some shoes and heading out. But I challenge you to think outside the box a little bit and embrace the shirt and skirt combo. This alternative is far more versatile in that it allows for more choices; you can mix and match tops and skirts to create infinitely more looks.
The leather skirt is super versatile and can be worn with a wide variety of items for many different occasions. Though this item may seem tricky to incorporate into your wardrobe, it's a challenge everyone should take on. Especially because it's possible to build outfits around a leather skirt with stuff you've already got lying around (because lord knows you haven't had time to hang anything up since midterms started....).
Step outside and you’ll discover the air is a little crisper, leaves are starting to darken into rustic colors, and the smell of autumn wafts through campus. It’s officially fall. You know what that means: now’s the time to start updating your wardrobe.
Every morning when I get off the subway to go to school, I have to walk right past Forever 21. And it's torture. School been in session for three weeks now, and there has been this super hot navy lace dress (I think it’s a dress, but you never know with that store...) every time I walk by. Seeing as I don’t REALLY need another dress (remember how I bought 3 in the spring?) I’ve been trying really hard not to go in and buy it in all its gorgeous, lacy glory.
Ok, here's the deal. While many people might disagree, I stand firm in my belief that lace should not be confined to the contents of your underwear drawer. Although it looks to die for on a pair of panties, it also looks beloved with just about any outfit. It's romantic. It's Grace Kelly. It's classy. It's classic.
There are many difficult decisions we women must make at different times throughout our lives: tampon or pad, Brazilian or bikini, Pantene or Herbel Essense, Gossip Girl or The Hills? Difficult, difficult decisions. It wasn’t until recently, however, that I faced one of the toughest short term decisions of my life. Or night.
Lace is easily one of the most popular fabrics this season. No longer just for your undies (though there are many, many pretty lace-y underthings available), Lady Gaga's VMA outfits, or your Grandma's doilies, lace has found it's way onto every type of clothing and accessory imaginable this season.
Fashion Week, a sort-of welcome week for the rich and stylish, has come to an end. Come tomorrow, a construction crew will be taking the tents at Bryant Park down, models will hop on planes to London and editors will finally get more than three hours of sleep per night. Ready to stock your closet for spring?
