Coco Chanel’s legacy is more than her brand. Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel lived an amazing life. After her mother passed away, she was abandoned by her father and went to live in an orphanage with her younger sister. It was here that she eventually learned how to sew. She faced countless hardships both personally and in business. Yet, she went on to become the most revolutionary designer of her time; her couture is still making millions today. This costume is original, fun and even better in black and white. I already owned everything I needed for this look. Chances are that you do too. Start by grabbing every pearl you own, and the personality will follow. Read More
I first discovered this costume idea years ago on Camille Styles. I’ve always wanted to try it, but something always took its place. This year, I decided it was time to go for it and make the costume my own. If you check out the original look, you’ll see that the makeup and hair are very minimal. After a few minor adjustments to the costume, I wanted to bring the bling from this costume onto my face and hair, and came up with this fun glitter makeup look. If you’re not into Halloween, this makeup also works for festivals, concerts or even a crazy fun Friday night. If you want to see more ideas like this one, check out camillestyles.com. Their costume ideas are easy to do and so much fun! Read More

As much as I’d like to say I’ve always been uniquely me when it comes to clothes, I did in fact spend much of my early teen years in Hollister beach huts, begging my mother for those precious low-rise skinny jeans while she suffocated from the perfume stench. (Tell your children to shop vintage, ladies.) I wanted them, not just because it was the thing to do, but because I believed the misconception that not all jeans work for all women. Read More
The young men of “Stranger Things” brought life and color back to red carpet mens fashion; “Big Little Lies” took home a well-deserved assemblage of Emmys; CBS’s money shot of Anna Chlumsky reacting to Sean Spicer’s cameo will go down in GIF history; and in an evening of firsts, Hulu made history as the first streaming service to take home an Emmy for best drama series; Donald Glover became the first African-American to win an Emmy for best director in a comedy series; Lena Waithe became the first African-American woman to win the Emmy for best writing in a comedy series; and Julia Louise Dreyfus became the record-holder for most Emmys awarded to an actor for a single role.
My western-influenced looks are a simple concoction: Suede + tassels + massive statement jewelry. Preferably turquoise and Navajo-made. (I’m happy to provide recommendations on where to buy authentic pieces; leave me a comment below!) Read More
As told to by Taylor Scheibe

I decided to forego the VMA’s this year for the Game of Thrones season seven finale. I wasn’t about to miss out on ice dragons and badassery for petty celebrity drama and Katy Perry. This turned out to be a solid decision. As I recapped the event thoroughly the next morning, I wasn’t overwhelmed by the fashion or the show itself. Though, I can report that I was fascinated by Taylor Swift’s new music video for “Look What You Made Me Do,” though I think the song itself is just average. The video is full of hidden nuances that make it so fun to watch. Another highlight was Miley Cyrus’s “Younger Now” performance. She’s really coming into her own. Her new rockabilly look has me reminiscing about the good old days of “Hannah Montana.” I’ll be honest—she almost made the list this year. Almost. Keep it up, Cyrus!
