Don't worry, it will be our little secret.
American Apparel's energy and fashion risk-taking was refreshing, and I would venture to say that it revived a love for long-lost styles that have since been adopted and copied by many fast-fashion retailers. Blatant dare-to-dream mentality and unabated vision is so hard to come by these days. Whatever happens, American Apparel is an example of what to do.
Long gone are the days where you have to be a certain size, look a certain way, or be a certain age. All of that is old news.

Here are the hottest trends for nails this fall and also the best tips to keep your manicure and pedicure looking amazing for a long time.
These women aren't separating their spirituality from personal or creative expression. By having the mainstream fashion industry represent women and men from different cultural and religious backgrounds, stereotypes and beliefs towards a group of people can be challenged. It is a step towards making unseen people seen.
There is nothing better than a gorgeous scent.

Black is slimming and the go to colour in many of our wardrobes, so it's easy to wear, right? Not so fast. If your clothing is ill fitting then it won't look good, no matter the colour. In addition, black can easily wash you out and (gasp!) make you appear older and even (insert another gasp here) make you look frumpy.
On Saturday, August 29, I turn 30. Three-oh. Twenty plus ten years. The age in which you are completely responsible for your own actions and can't, in any way, shape, or form, blame it on your "turbulent twenties" or "being young." That's why here, in the spirit of turning 30 and basking in life lessons, I present: 30 things I learned about style over the course of the last 30 years.
