A modern, structured cocktail dress has a place in every woman's wardrobe and this season there are a plethora of options. From Marchesa's feminine organza confections to the strict and orderly from Calvin Klein there are silhouettes to match every style. Let these fabulous frocks speak for themselves by pairing them with a simple pair of platform heels and a clean makeup look.
Remember when I told you that vinyl was coming back in a big way? I meant it. So whether you are a budding record collector or already have a massive collection of your own, get organized by filing your LPs by genre or alphabetizing them this Spring with these CD and LP Dividers ($15-$45) from Suck UK.
When you're playing DJ to your pals, there's nothing worse than hearing the bare crackle of your record player while you're searching for the next great track to play. Get it together, man. Hey, and I'm not saying CDs are totally out. If you're still hanging onto all those discs and jewel cases, you can get yourself some dividers for those, too. I know, it's hard to let go of the past, but, thankfully, you aren't alone.
I'm always amazed at how the perfect styling job can transform simple pieces into treasures. Corey Lynn Calter's Spring look book has that kind of powerful styling. A floral mini skirt, for example, is cute, but when paired with a green dotted tank top and metallic gold Oxfords, it instantly comes to life. It's the finishing touches — the hats, jewels, footwear, layering — and nature scenes that make me want to stare at Corey Lynn Calter's look book all day long. They've taken a pretty model (doesn't she kind of look like Margherita Missoni?), put her in fun clothes, nerd glasses, funky hats, and the result is nothing short of a sweetheart.
Although the high street no-name options are plentiful and tempting, we believe in spending a little more for a nice pair of summer sandals. Nice shoes not only make a good impression but they can make an otherwise plain outfit look fashion forward. To that end (and in the spirit of stimulating the economy) here are 50 pairs of sandals from 50 different designers and brands. They might cost a little more but we think there are many reasons you might find them worth the money.
You know what April showers bring, and for the start of this month, I've gathered together some great beauty products to make these next 31 days all the more festive. With Mother's Day, Cinco De Mayo, and Memorial Day on the way, it's time to think open-toed sandals, brighter makeup palettes, and of course, things wouldn't be the same without some May flowers in the mix.
Happy May Day! This month, get into the full swing of Spring with fun interior design events, cool hotel openings, and new ways to have fun in your casa. Stay tuned this May for great ideas for celebrating at home. Want to throw a craft party? Start a movie night for friends? Check back for my suggestions for making the most of entertaining at home. In the meantime, see what other great events, products, and openings are happening around the country.
A good percentage of the population suffers from seasonal allergies, and springtime can be the worst with all the new plants budding. To find relief, I'm a regular neti pot user and am always telling people to use one too. The warm salt water helps flush pollen, dust, and mold spores out of my nose, which helps prevent symptoms. When dealing with pain from sinus congestion, I also suggest people use a therapeutic warming pillow. The heat helps loosen up mucus, which helps alleviate sinus pressure.
If you too deal with seasonal allergy symptoms, I'm sure you have some great remedies, so share them in the comment section below.
After the successful multi-city launch of his colorful range for H&M, a second delivery from Matthew Williamson is poised to hit shelves.

One easy way to update your home this Spring is by changing out the bedding. Su Casa member Kimpossible did just that. She writes, "I've been looking for new bedding for our bed for a few weeks now. While I loved the old set, it's much too heavy for Spring and Summer. I finally found something I really liked today at Target."
