The Curvy Girl’s Guide to Pants That Fit

Pants and I have not always seen eye to eye. When I was 5 years old, my commitment to skirts and dresses was such that once, when my mother tried to force me into a pair of pants (that were, in hindsight, totally adorable) for school, I opted for an act of open defiance and decided to march to class in my underwear instead of giving in to the tyranny of trousers.

But one day, a pair of pants caught my attention and I decided to wear them to school, ignoring the “skirts only” rule. Sadly, this stint was short-lived and I was suspended for a week. After making a ruckus over the “no pants for girls” rule, the school changed its dress code and everyone was allowed to wear them.

As I grew up, I became fascinated with the fit of pants...

Compliments Are As Gratifying As The Prices

Thanks to a reliable flock of detail-oriented reviewers, Amazon has become the answer for nearly all of our purchasing queries. From the things you’d expect (household appliances, groceries, books) to the thoroughly surprising finds (fresh flowers, wedding rings!?, bridesmaid dresses), there seems to be nothing that can’t be supplied by the behemoth e-tailer. We spend a lot of office hours inspecting this do-everything site and carefully read through the endorsements of its browsing critics to surface the best goods available, but it was endorsements from two readers that turned our attention towards the site’s swimsuits.

Good Housekeeping also has done some extensive research into the swimwear market and has a good review on different aspects like prices, styles that are flattering t...

This Spring Wear Pastel Makeup Every Way Possible

Spring has sprung, and with it comes longer, sunnier days, sangria sipped patio-side (finally!) and catching an afternoon Jays games. If there’s one enduring spring trend that tops it all though, year after year, it’s the warm welcome of a soft, super pretty pastel palette.

But while sorbet shades are arguably the dreamiest of them all, sporting a head-to-toe look can be a little much. Instead, take after the likes of Marc Jacobs, Thom Brown and Preen, to name a few, who presented their spring offerings paired with super pretty pastel makeup looks like mint lips and lids, and even festival-ready pastel florals. Here, our favourites to get you #pastelpretty.

Imaan Hammam, Model

“In my family, I’m one of six—two siblings from my dad’s previous marriage, a brother and sister from my mom’s previous marriage, and then me and my little sister when my parents got together. I grew up in Amsterdam, but dad is from Egypt and my mom is from Morocco. My mom has always been into fashion, and on top of that, she sews. The outfits she made in the ‘70s and ‘80s are my favorite. I think her love of fashion is what got me interested in it. I started modeling when I was 13 years old, after I was scouted at a train station in Amsterdam. This woman ran up to me and was like, ‘Are you a model? Here’s my card, please contact me.’ I was already super tall, and I was so insecure...

Celebs-Here’s What’s in Their Shopping Bags

Don’t get me wrong. I’m pretty much the last person on Earth to discriminate when it comes to where I research and shop beauty products because I’m obsessed. Plus, it’s actually part of my job. At any given time, you’ll find big-name beauty retailers like Sephora, Ulta, Dermstore, Nordstrom, Amazon—heck, even drugstore hot spots like CVS—open in tabs on my MacBook. That said, whenever I’m in dire need of a chic beauty fix, I have one haunt, in particular, that’s my first and favorite destination of choice: Violet Grey. Be it the brick-and-mortar store cozily nestled on Melrose Place in L.A. or the online mecca, I’m 100% smitten, and in all honesty, I’ve probably spent more hours surfing the depths of its Violet Code–approved favorites than I’d like to know or admit...

Crazy Pants of 2018

Crazy Pants of 2018

We’re just going to come out and say it. The Insta-famous leopard pants we saw everywhere over the last few months are undoubtedly one of the It items of 2018. Yes, yes, animal prints infiltrated just about every corner of the fashion industry this season, but it’s the spot on (lol) jeans and trousers that really took the fashion elite by storm. To be honest, the silhouette has almost replaced classic blue jeans at this point, holding its own as a staple and neutral that can be paired with anything.

The good news is that we don’t foresee the look to run out of steam anytime soon. Who doesn’t have a pair yet?  Everyone who makes “fashion news” has’em! So, if you haven’t tested out the trend yet, get to it. They are just too much fun to sport...

Well Ladies, it’s that time of year already, fall is here and a lot of women are wearing fall clothes even though it’s 80 degrees out there!  There is nothing like being the first one showing off the new fashion….fashionistas are brave but that’s how they get their followers and fans!

Born in the good ol’ USA I’m like all you that are young, middle aged and well aged like wine….I LIKE my fashion!  However I am usually dressed in jeans, t-shirt and comfy barn boots!  I’ve ruined enough heels thinking I could just run in the barn and feed right fast and come out smelling like horses ….which I must admit I love the smell of horses!  I look down and there on my heels is horse poo…...
