Most Iconic Oscar Looks of All Time

It’s Oscar Sunday: the pinnacle of award show season and the equivocal super bowl for many a movie goer. I mark the Academy Awards on my calendar-it’s that big of a deal-and not just because I have an excuse to watch a top-notch assemblage of films the week leading up to the big night. Each year I sit on the edge of my seat, ballot in hand, oohing and ahhing over the stunning fashion and sulking over Leo’s losses.

2017 Grammy Awards Best Dressed List

This time last year I was watching the Grammy Awards with my roommate, a sharp and talented fashion business major. We disagreed on every look, and when the red carpet coverage came to a close, she threw up her hands and said, “Taylor, it’s not about what you like, it’s about the fashion!” Read More

2017 SAG Awards Best Dressed List

Political issues were a running theme as per usual, Dolly Parton appeared out of nowhere to thunderous applause, the Screen Actors Guild aired a tear-jerking tribute montage, Lily Tomlin with gave a hilarious and inspiring six minute and 22 second acceptance speech for her lifetime achievement award, and Guild members selected “Stranger Things” in what should have been an impossible vote between the nominees for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series.

Three Ways to Style Your Skirts This Winter

We Chicagoans are kicking off 2017 with a series of whopping 17-degree days. Considering that it’s far above last year’s icy -2, we’re simply beside ourselves. As someone who has endured now five Chicago winters I feel as though I am in a position of authority to discuss skirts in January. It is a truth not universally acknowledged that locking your skirts away for the winter is not only a sad excuse to buy clothes you don’t need, but also a terrible misuse of beautiful fabric.  Read More

2017 Golden Globes Best Dressed List

“La La Land” broke a record for the most Golden Globe wins by a film, canary yellow and plunging necklines dominated the red carpet, Jimmy Fallon was barely on camera at all, not-so-subtle Trump jokes were incalculable (though I’m pretty sure not one person actually spoke his name), NBC aired a tribute to Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher that made everyone want to sob, and Meryl Streep—as only she could do—gave a speech to end all speeches with an almost nonexistent voice. Without further ado, here are my nominees for the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards best dressed list. Read More

God Save The 90’s

Upon the return of the choker earlier this year, one thing became abundantly clear—the 90’s had come full circle. Just when you thought some things would never be cool again, they start popping up in Vogue. Take mom jeans, bucket hats, or wearing chunky high heels over calf-high dress socks. But then, maybe we were too busy trying to dress for our given decade to notice that they were always cool. Granted, there are a few trends that we wish would just stay away, like manpris, terry cloth, bike shorts and butterfly clips on adult heads (never again). Inspired by the best looks of the decade and the style icons that made them timeless, this season we’re pairing our patched denim and nerdy graphic tees with our favorite fall staples. While you’re fishing the grunge out of your closet, make sure to call your mom and apologize for telling her that her mom jeans weren’t cool. Read More

Sunday Morning Read: How To Be Parisian Wherever You Are

“Always be fuckable.”

I snapped the book shut with a breathy gasp, glancing over my shoulder in the petite section of Anthropologie. I had no reason to be shopping in the petite section. The sales associate sizing pleated pants across from me thought so too. Like a guilty teenager, I became suddenly distracted by a pair of overpriced stilettos and made my escape. With one finger between the pages to keep my place, I meandered to the sale section where I read on:

“Always be fuckable: when standing in line at the bakery on a Sunday morning, buying champagne in the middle of the night, or even picking the kids up from school. You never know.”
