What are you lusting over for spring? We love designer brands as much as the next girl, but luxury doesn’t come cheap. Thankfully, the rise of high-low fashion and “recessionista” style means that already established discount sites like Gilt Groupe and Net-a-Porter have some very welcome company. While you always have to watch out for authenticity on eBay, sites like... CONTINUE READING 15


We’re huge fans of modifying the LBD (Little Black Dress) to fit the occasion, season, or company. For example, a Little White Dress is perfect for summer cocktails at a rooftop bar. While on vacation in the Greek Islands, a Little Blue Dress is a great option. And on Valentine’s Day, why not go full-on feminine (and sexy) with a... CONTINUE READING 11
