Are you sick of taking an extra five minutes just to wiggle into your jeans? Do you find yourself not being able to breathe after taking only a few bites of your dinner when you wear such jeans? Great news, friends! Skinny jeans are out, and there’s a new skinny in town…
Each time I check any form of social media on a Monday, it seems like everyone I follow is having the worst day ever. There’s something about starting off the week again that we all seem to share a hatred for, and take our hatred to Facebook and Instagram. But there’s one Monday of the year where you can feel optimistic…BECAUSE PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS ON SALE TODAY.
The one thing us Chicagoans all seem to want is a warm winter coat, but one that’s actually stylish…and doesn’t make us look like a marshmallow. It’s something I struggled with in the past but either designers have really stepped up their game in the outerwear department or I’ve gotten really good at finding stylish winter coats (perhaps a little bit of both?) This is a secret I simply cannot keep to myself. So if you’re freezing your ass off right now, this should be able to help.
Although I go to several events a week, it’s very rare when the dress code calls for cocktail, or even worse…black tie. For these reasons, I have very few “fancy” dresses in my closet, but the same three or four are always on call when it comes to these special occasions. After having two of these events last week (and Harper’s Bazaar practically reading my mind), this seemed like the perfect opportunity to get a little fancy and share some key tips to black tie dressing.
When it comes to fashion, you can find pretty much anything you want at a low, middle and high price point, depending on what you want to spend and the quality of the product. But the one item that is the most difficult to find in that middle category? Bags. Why? I can’t answer that, but it is a constant frustration when not everyone wants to spend a thousand dollars (or more) on an accessory. I’ve already dedicated an entire post to this, appropriately titled The Bag Gap, but that was before I found out about Kara (which is actually designed by a Sarah…)
