18 of the coolest ankle boots for fall: The best deals and the big splurges.

Fall is my favorite time of the year, because boots! Also coffee and pumpkin spice and back to school, but cool boots are way up there. Right now I’m thinking about ankle boots, because it’s really still too warm to be wearing anything taller than that. Plus, they’ll go with anything all season long — from jeans to a little black dress. You can even get three seasons out of lots of styles. I’ve been doing a lot of shopping around to see what’s new and cool in the classic boot styles I think you’ll want to consider for your closet this fall. From stilettos to moto...

Tips for styling cool back to school looks, and how to save while doing it

How to decorate plain sneakers: 9 DIY crazy cool sneaker makeovers for your white canvas kicks

Labor Day is around the corner, which means this is your last week to wear those white canvas sneakers until next Memorial Day if you’re a traditionalist. Personally, I’m not, so I’ll be sporting my white Converse low-tops until my toes crave the warmth of wooly socks and boots. But if you’re bored after a summer of kicking it in plain white sneakers, then by all means it’s time for a change.

13 outrageously cool sneakers for kids not satisfied with the same old same old.

If your kids are like mine, and want to express their personality through cool kids’ sneakers, you’re in luck. That’s pretty much what’s on the shelves these days, and they’re not just the so-called fashion brands. Even the big athletic sneaker brands are getting loose with design, which means we don’t have to compromise between sturdy fit for our kids and the fun styles they want. Here are just some of my picks for some of the more fun sneaker designs for boys and girls, toddlers to big kids, that can take them back to school in style this fall. All affordable too,...

Fayvel shoes let kids play their own shoe designer

It’s probably no surprise that when a pair of Fayvel shoes for kids arrived at my house, my brood went nuts. There may have been some fighting, actually. Designer Erin Slater was inspired by her own nostalgia for sticker collecting to create shoes that allow today’s kids to do just that, only on their feet. The final concept is brilliant: Shoes with velcro on the sides that allows kids to customize their pair with special patches known as Frieze tags. Think Jibbitz on Crocs, but way cooler. Way way cooler.  At least to me, anyway. As it turns out, it’s not just a gimmick. The sneakers are comfortable,...

A great bag from the Great Bag Co, now at a great price

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting fashion stylist to the stars Robert Verdi a few times, and he is as fun, and sweet, and charming and wonderful as you probably think he is, if you’ve ever caught him on E! or pretty much in any fashion magazine. So when I heard he launched a new handbag label called The Great Bag Co, I was so excited. Turns out the first bag in the line has got all the style plus that surprising wink I’d expect from him — and even better, if you’re a Bezar member, they’re on sale this week. (You can use our...

The new TKEES are here! Behold our disproportionate excitement about such things.

To say I’m a TKEES sandals fan is a bit of an understatement. Ever since I discovered them about four years ago, they’ve slowly become the only flip-flop style sandals I own. They’re comfy and can take a bit of a beating, plus they’re chic enough for me to wear into the city, but casual enough for a pool party or walk to the beach. And unlike the Havaianas I used to hoard (sorry, Havaianas!) they will never be mistaken for gym shower shoes. So when I saw some of the new TKEES styles out, which can get me exploring beyond the...

How to wear skinny jeans without flaunting a muffin top. No Spanx required…maybe.

I’ll be honest that after having four kids, I wasn’t sure I’d ever be adding skinny jeans to my wardrobe. While I eventually lost the baby weight (well, most of it anyway), the extra skin made me feel self-conscious. But with some careful shopping and lots of trial and error, I feel like I’ve at last mastered the art of wearing skinny jeans as a not-anywhere-near-size-2 woman. To show that you can do it too, I’m thrilled (like, super thrilled) to welcome AYR as our newest sponsor. They’re a really smart company that was founded to offer perfect fitting jeans, along with versatile, high quality...

3 cool tote bags for Mother’s Day gifts that help support other moms right back.

One of the bonuses of becoming a mom is being celebrated by my family. And by being celebrated, I mean receiving Mother’s Day gifts, of course. I love everything my husband and sons pick out for me, whether it’s something I’ve always wanted but felt guilty buying for myself or an upgrade of something I use all the time. However, I love it even more when it’s a gift that also supports a great cause, like tote bags from two companies we love.
