Gifts that Give Back


For 11 months of the year, I encourage you to shop with abandon. Without reason or sensibility, I encourage you to shop only for yourself without thinking of others. And if I dwell on this for too long I realize that this probably makes me a terrible person. And usually I'm okay with that. But around this time, the guilt starts to catch up with me and I start to  - gasp - think of others. If … [Continue reading]

Mindy Project Fashion: Clothes from How To Lose a Mom

Mindy's plaid sweater: Equipment

You know I can't resist a good Friends reference and tonight's Mindy Project gave me plenty of fodder. As Mindy and Danny embarked on a romantic soak in the tub (isn't that just marinating in your own filth?) I was reminded of the time Monica and Chandler were in the tub when Joey walked in on them. Sub ziti for chicken and you have one of the world's greatest friends ever. Which reminds … [Continue reading]

Marry Me Fashion: Clothes from Thank Me

Annie's plaid dress from Marry Me: Ralph Lauren

Marry Me is a lot like watching my life unfold on the small screen. Last January, my family and I moved into a new house and hosting the holidays became my responsibility. In the months since, I have managed to unsuccessfully time every holiday get together in such a perfectly horrendous way that we haven't eaten a meal that wasn't simultaneously too hot, too cold, rushed and entirely too … [Continue reading]

Save up to 25% at the Shopbop annual sale


I have never understood the appeal of camping out the night before Black Friday. Stuffed with turkey and pumpkin pie, the last thing I want to be doing is braving the cold for a good deal on a flat screen TV or boots for my kids. Seriously, if we as humans were intended to save money by freezing our asses off, then refrigerators would come with an ice and money dispenser. While I don't … [Continue reading]

Scandal Fashion: Olivia Pope’s clothes from Where the Sun Don’t Shine


Rowan Pope is like that guy who graduate high school, but just can't seem to leave. He promises he's gone forever, but then he shows up at restaurants, your house, even prom. If you want people to think you've got it all together, Rowan, maybe get into a good college, join a fraternity, mean a cute girl and stop stalking your daughter's boyfriends.  Seriously, If Fitz is Dylan McCay and Jake is … [Continue reading]

Nashville Fashion: Clothes from You’re Lookin’ At Country

Juliette's lace illusion dress: Mandalay  Similar: Mac Duggal

This week's Nashville featured quite a few real country stars and I started wondering if actual musicians watch Nashville and roll their eyes the way doctors roll their eyes at Gray's Anatomy or lawyers give Law & Order the side eye. Kind of like how I gave Zoey the sideeye when she lost Gunnar's kid. (Aside, did anyone else realize that Gunnar's babymomma is the girl from Spykids?) The … [Continue reading]

Win it! Nashville Fashion: Win Sadie and Layla’s CMA jewelry from Stella & Dot

Layla's earrings: Art Deco by Stella Dot  Necklace:  Somervelle by Stella Dot  Bracelet: Amelie Sparkle (not shown)

Last night on Nashville the imaginary country stars Rayna James, Juliette Barnes and Layla Grant hit the red carpet for the annual imaginary CMAs, which are also hosted by the real country stars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. The queen of Highway 65, Rayna James, took home an astonishing six trophies, not to mention a fiance with a very bruised ego, while Layla Grant tried to do damage … [Continue reading]

Steal of the day: LaSoula diamond necklaces


  Sometimes I turn off my TV. But not this morning. And good thing I didn't, because if I had, I would have missed this morning's steals and deals on Good Morning America which featured the new "littles" collection from one of my favorite jewelry designers, LaSoula. Like those little charm necklaces you've seen on the celebs and fancy ladies at lunch and the gym, the La Soula … [Continue reading]
