American Apparel has done it again! The purveyor of multi-use style has a fabulous cotton/spandex skirt that can bring tons of mileage to any trip or everyday wardrobe.

What do you do when you’re on vacation and having a questionable (or lazy) hair day? You improvise. That’s what my gorgeous travel buddy Eva did when we went to the Bahamas. What I was using as a simple hair accessory to keep my hair out of my face when I worked out she was using as a chic hippie hair band. Genius! Check it out below.
This will also be great for outdoor festivals and a fresh look for your next soiree or pool party. And you don’t have to stick to a plain workout elastic. Try a beaded version for a little more sparkle. Read the rest of this entry »
It all began in 1957, when a certain woman we love, the late Audrey Hepburn, dazzled us with something so chic, so elegant that we thought to ourselves, “Why didn’t we think of that?” The Funny Face gal wore something that now has become a comfortable, fashionable, and important piece to every woman’s wardrobe: the legging.
