Female nipples are as worthy of celebration as they are controversial. They have literally nursed life into new generations since the dawn of mammals, and yet in some states their exposure remains illegal. The viral #FreeTheNipple campaign has already made an impact in the way the world sees bare chests, as something human rather than pornographic, but a lot more still needs to be done. Luckily, Robyn and Michelle Lytle, creators of the TaTa Top, have taken the ... Read More
I’ve been dyeing my hair since I was 10 years old. It's been just about every color imaginable- even green, and green is a tough hair color to rock. I also usually dye my hair myself since salons are so insanely expensive. I've collected more than a few tricks for achieving the perfect dye job over the years, so here are my top seven for all of you who are thinking about taking the color plunge.  1. Use a buddy! Dyeing hair, especially your own, is ... Read More
Are you as sick of the endless lingerie search, foraging for a larger cup size that is not boring and/or overpriced? I wear a bra size 34F and let me tell you, finding a bra that is comfortable, supportive, and cute all for an affordable price is a true pain. The boutique stores with small lacy bras for smaller sizes just don't offer the kind of support larger breasts need and the large chains like Victoria Secret and Macy's are always throwing diamonds and bows ...

Okay, I’ll admit it. I’m a sucker for nature-friendly labeling. Want me to buy something? Label it “Organic.” Want me to stop buying it? Tell me it’s filled with harmful chemicals.  This is why, when I first heard about the “no-poo” (no shampoo) hair-washing method of using baking soda and apple cider vinegar, I was intrigued. I mean, the “ingredients” list in hair products is scary! Why would I not choose ... Read More
I realized that my computer truly knew me on the day that the internet started advertising exclusively novelty socks on every single website I visited... Although the image below is incredibly bizarre, the interwebs has clearly detected my love for awesome socks.  You may not know this, but socks are the secret superheroes of outfit-building. A good pair of socks can tie an outfit together, incorporating the varied colors into a unified whole. Or, a great ... Read More
I was never one for binge-watching TV shows. That is, until I saw the first episode of Sex and the City on HBOGo. Needless to say, it sucked me in like a feathery Dior tornado, and to this day has not let go.  I may be a decade late to the game, but the outfits, like good cheese, only get better with age.   A few (okay, more than a few) episodes into one of my Sex and the City sprees, my brain started to short-circuit, and I started thinking about other ...

Yay Summer!!! It’s mid July, the sun is in the sky and it’s mad hot yo. I don’t know about you, but I’m super sick of that plain one-piece I've owned for decades and all the bedazzled swimwear in Victoria’s Secret. No offense to all the Victoria’s-Secret-philes out there, but though their suits are often super cute, sometimes I feel a bit over exposed and flashy for my own comfort, and I don’t think I’m ...

While there has already been one article about J.Crew’s new 000 size published on bust.com, I believe there’s more to discuss; in short, it’s time to unzip this issue a little further and see what unfolds (okay, no more clothing puns).   There are three huge issues that the first article left out that are worth being discussed 1)   Vanity sizing 2)   Asian female demographic 3)   Who is to blame/What should be ...

I’m a big fan of body modifications. I have dyed hair and six piercings myself, and fully intend to get more, and maybe even a tattoo if I can ever finally pick something. However, there’s a cultural attitude that dictates having dyed hair or piercings or a tattoo makes someone a bad person, or unqualified for a position. This couldn't be further from the truth. While there is a bad egg in every basket, there's no person who can be so judged based ... Read More
J. Crew is right up there with Vineyard Vines at the list of the preppiest clothing stores where the skinniest, most photo-ready-looking people shop. However, given the quality and price tag of the J. Crew brand, I never would have thought they’d introduce clothing that mothers and elementary school age children can share. However, that seems to be just what they’ve done by creating a size 000, which is basically a triple extra small. Because if there ... Read More
