Cool boot socks that make your old Hunter Boots new again.

Who can’t live without their Hunter Boots, raise your hand? (Oh look! It’s my entire Brooklyn Neighborhood!) While they’re not the snowboots that my Sorel boots are, I adore the versatility of my Hunter Boots, which are the perfect wellies in a summer rainstorm; or pop in a pair of fleecy Hunter Boot Socks and make them toasty enough for cold winter morning walks to school. When I first got my own boots, I was sure to grab a pair of the microsoft sock inserts in black. But now it turns out there are so many cool designs, you can pretty much turn...

Snow boots worth the investment: The Sorel Tofino boot

There are a few items worth splurging on in your life, and as I’ve learned the hard way, an awesome pair of warm, sturdy, comfy winter boots is one of them. At least if you’re not in LA where everyone seems to drag out the UGGs in 65-degree weather and complain about the chill. (You only laugh because it’s true.) If I can recommend the best ever pair? The Sorel Women’s Tofino Boot. And truth be told, at $150 they’re not even a huge splurge. After two seasons of adding to cart then never actually buying them, I finally bought my pair during last...

‘Tis the season for snood scarves

Since moving up north after almost ten years enjoying mild southern winters, I have become addicted to chunky scarves, like these snood scarves from IRISMINT on Etsy which I’m pretty sure I’d wear non-stop until spring. Each piece is made completely by hand from natural fibers like merino wool and cashmere (ooh!), in a gorgeous array of colors and patterns. I’m in love with the geometric pattern, which is so on-trend right now, and the herringbone and the ikat are gorgeous, too. All can be worn pulled up, or folded over if you prefer them to be lower on your neck....

11 hot holiday dresses, all under $100. For real.

When you think hot holiday dresses, you probably imagine your budget flying out of the window. And if you’re like me, you’d rather save the money for holiday gifts and not necessarily drop a couple hundred dollars on a dress you might only wear once or twice. Of course, you could always rent a fabulous holiday dress on Rent the Runway, but for close to the same price, you could snag a stylish dress for yourself that you’ll wear for New Year’s or even way beyond the holiday season. Here, I rounded up 10 hot (and dare I say...

Hot bags for a cause from Angela and Roi

I have no specific name brand requirements for the bags that I carry. As long as it’s stylish, functional and well-made, I’m happy. And even happier if it happens to give back to great causes, which is exactly what happens when you buy an Angela & Roi bag. Every single one of these simple yet stylish bags gives back to a charity, with the brand creatively connecting each one’s color to a specific charitable foundation that will receive $5 with your purchase. So a green bag helps support the Anxiety and Depression Society of America. The yellow bags give back to the American Childhood Cancer Association. Red goes towards the fight against HIV and AIDS.  There are 11 colors in all, each dedicated to a particular health-minded charity. What’s so wonderful is that these beautifully-crafted, vegan leather bags are the kinds you’d drool over at your big department store or small neighborhood boutique. Each one has a small embedded stamp or engraved ribbon logo on the outside–though both  are extremely subtle because I’m sensitive to that–and each comes with a special paper tag explaining the charity that’s being supported by your purchase. I know that $5 isn’t a huge amount when you’re talking about a $70 or $100 bag, but it’s a wonderful gesture. And hey, to make this a really special gift, perhaps you pick one for someone already dedicated to that particular charity and include an additional donation in her name. That’s...

It used to be that the idea of designer accessories under $100 was an oxymoron, but these days it’s increasingly not the case.

Here, I’ve scoured the web and found ten really hot designer accessories all under $100 that will make perfect holiday gifts for designer-name lovers or equal-opportunity accessorizers like me.     Kate...

Dagne Dover: Hot designer bags from a designer you probably haven’t heard of. Yet.

I’ve got a very particular formula for selecting hot designer bags, which includes style, function, and versatility. Because as much as I love those super tiny crossbody bags with spikes, if I’m dropping a pretty penny on it, I need to be able to use it all the time. That  is why I’m very pleased to introduce you to Dagne Dover. The label was created by three women with extensive fashion and business backgrounds who were tired of having to carry around two bags for all of their stuff (here here!)–and clearly these ladies know what they are doing. The bags are classic in appearance and color,...
