Check out six of ... Read More
"It looks...different" said my ex-boyfriend, upon seeing that I'd cut off my shoulder-length dark hair into a shorn look inspired by Michelle Williams and the never-ending encouragement of my already pixie-cut friend Hannah. Different? "No shit?" I replied. Of course it looked different. It was different by six inches. He followed with another classic: "I just can't believe you cut it. It's gone." Change is hard. I get it. But hair grows back, and it's a style ... Read More
I’m a big vintage photo collector, so I was pretty jazzed when I found a whole basket of late 1930s photos hidden away at a local antique store. This particular bunch of images all appear to be from the same group of friends and family--snapshots from summers together between 1936 through 1938. While the hot days keep getting hotter, these photos are a perfect source of inspiration on how to look cute and still stay cool. They’re also an adorable glimpse into ... Read More

She donned six-inch fire truck red stilettos, so that she would be comfortable for the run, and a pompadour hairstyle colored similarly to the flame itself. Faith also customized the official Olympic torchbearer tracksuit into a crop top and pedal pushers. Talk about going ... Read More
