(1) Comments | Posted November 8, 2008 | 11:27 AM

With tiny boutiques slashing orders and huge chains closing up entire stores, it's more than clear that fashion sure isn't the buy-two-of-everything playground it used to be. Naturally, there's no better time to shop lean and mean, investing in just a few key pieces--the first being your fall/winter coat. No...

Cat Power! Leopard prints for fall and beyond...

It's always those things I say I'm never going to wear--platforms, '70s jeans, black leather--that I end up becoming totally obsessed with. Lately, I've been pining for cheetah, leopard, cat-print everything. Usually, the trick is to wear it in small doses (a...

This Week In eBay Obsessions: Vintage Travel Bags

With just a month left of summer, we're all scrambling to cash in those overdue vacation days or just book a long weekend away. I remain convinced there is nothing more detrimental to a look than dragging along one of those hideous (ie: ubiquitous) black wheelie bags. Style-wise, it's the...
