Parenthood fashion: Clothes from a Potpurri of Freaks

Kristina's grey sweater: Brochu Walker  Kristina's pink scarf: Joes

Last night I went to a Parenthood viewing party. It's not as lame as it sounds. It was just a group of middle aged women, sitting around eating licorice and popcorn and drinking wine and discussing who is going to die and whether Joel and Julia should get back together and WTF Sarah Braverman is doing with her life. Okay, maybe it is as lame as it sounds. I kid, I kid. For several … [Continue reading]

Last chance to take 25% off Shopbop

Janessa Leon

You know, there's a reason the ShopBop friends and family sale lasts three days. Because it really requires three passes to shop it thoroughly. The first day? The big stuff. Jeans. Shoes. Sweaters. The stuff you want to wear rightthisminute. The second day? Impulse buys. That itchy feeling like you just wanna buy something because it's a deal? Troll the sale section and take additional … [Continue reading]

Manhattan Love story: Clothes from Gay or British

Dana's colorblock dress: Anthropologie

Here's my fundamental issue with Manhattan Love Story. Dana has terrible judgement. Not only did she give money to the not-deaf guy last week, and buy a fake Prada off a card table in Chinatown (really???) but of all the ice cream flavors in the world she picks strawberry and has terrible taste in friends. I'm still puzzled why Amy, her Type-A, neurotic best friend would ever set her up … [Continue reading]

About a Boy fashion from season 2 premiere

Minnie's brown romper: Tysa (dress version pictured)

Last night was the season premiere of About a Boy, bringing Will back to San Francisco and his rightful place in a dumbwaiter elevator next door to Fiona and Marcus. After a stressful three months of cashing royalty checks and finding the perfect bagel, Will is now dealing with real world problems: tree house terrorizing bullies and kitchen-staged rebirthing exercises. And you think New … [Continue reading]

New Girl fashion: Jess’s bow sweater

Jess's bow sweater: Alice + Olivia

  When I was in high school, there was an adorably young, adorably attractive history teacher. If you went to high school with me, you know who I'm talking about. He smelled like Abercrombie and Fitch and looked like a character from Beverly Hills, 90210, which, at the time, was the standard for attractiveness. And he was so young that I remember he came to school the day after his … [Continue reading]

Take an additional 25% off sale items at ShopBop’s Friends and Family sale

BB Dakota ombre wool coat

So, I have a confession. I hate when sales are only on full-priced items to the point where, as an experiment I'll put a sale item in my cart just to see if the promo code works. And I was shocked to learn - and you probably will be too - that the friends25 code at ShopBop includes sale items. It just takes an additional 25% off sale items (including this ombre BB Dakota jacket I've been eyeing … [Continue reading]

Win it! Mindy Kaling’s black sheep sweatshirt from Mindy Project c/o Modcloth

Mindy's sheep graphic tee: Modcloth

If you're like me, you're probably anxiously counting down the minutes until tonight's episode of the Mindy Project. And not just because it means your kids will be in bed. Though it doesn't hurt. (Just being honest) Seriously, the last two days my kids have been home from school, the rain has been nonstop and I haven't seen the inside of a  pair of slimfit jeans since … [Continue reading]

Nashville fashion: Outfits from How Far Down I can go

Rayna's beaded top: L'Agence

You know this season of Nashville is a lot like Ben Flajnik's season of the Bachelor. Not only does Avery and Ben have that same, sorta greasy, overgrown hair, but both are like that guy on your Facebook feed that finds a song on Spotify and plays it ad nauseum. For Ben it was that David Gray song; for Avery its his ode to Juliette Barnes, "the most beautiful girl in the world." And speaking … [Continue reading]
