I was recently at a beauty-related event where models were used to show off the product. Most of the models there were of the fashion variety -- very tall and extremely thin.

I'm always amazed when people tell me that they don't like to shop. To me, that's almost equivalent to not liking to eat. And who doesn't like to eat? If you happen to be one of these rare birds, here are five tips to hopefully make your (oh dread) shopping experience a teeny bit more enjoyable.
On Friday June 14, 2013, the prestigious Roy Thomson Hall in Toronto was the hub of all things fabulous for PDLT Canada Philippine Fashion Week's biggest event: CPFW presents Gala Premiere: Philippine Fashion's Biggest Night.
One of the great pleasures of life is kissing a man with a moustache. (Yes, you can quote me.) I am completely in luck because Istanbul is full of handsome men with moustaches -- not just any kind of moustache, but sexy ones. In fact, all of the facial hair here in Istanbul is süper sexy.

Boundaries are breaking down all around us. And this new wave of feminism we're experiencing has impacted many of the boundaries in the world of fashion too; the idea that there are standards of beauty that we must conform to, that being beautiful is a feeling that should be available to only a few privileged few, rather than something every woman should feel, from both inside and out.
"All guys should dress like you," she said. "That's a really great blazer." I realized I was the only guy there who even bothered to toss on a blazer that brisk early winter evening. Here's what you need to know about buying and wearing a blazer.
It's remarkable to see the impact The Great Gatsby has had on designers in recent seasons -- it started even when the movie was just announced. While current designers and collections offer many options for those of us enchanted with these styles, we can also go right to the source. Here are some more tips for shopping vintage.
Nowadays, my purchases aren't governed by external ideas of what the "right" thing to buy is, but what feels right to me. As we start a new season, I think it's a perfect time to explore something new, to give yourself a fresh start, in some small way. For me, it's really about finding and following your own heart, listening to your own inner voice...
Autism Awareness, April Fools' Day spoofs, more bacon, more white t-shirts and party favours -- that's what caught my attention this week. 1. April 2 was World Autism Awareness Day and this year marks...

Once all the fashion weeks wrap up around the world, I love perusing all the new trends. But wait a second, let's be financially responsible for a second. Before we start swiping those credit cards and making our bank accounts ache, we should keep in mind that we still have quite a few viable outfits from last year. So why not recycle?

Amoralle, formerly SockBox, makes its triumphant return to fashion under new name and focus. Same style: sensitive night gowns with underlining waistlines; same management: fashion designer and the brand owner -- Inese Krumina; different result.
Seated at the five-star establishment where we were dining, I looked around at all the other women in the room who had clearly made a similar effort. Nice work, ladies. And then my eyes wandered to the boys, I mean men, in the room. There were sweatshirts everywhere. Too-long pants sitting below the butt crack, scuffed sneakers, and yes, baseball caps. Some even turned off-centre.

I started watching House of Cards. That's when my longing for a strong female lead with a great wardrobe was not only answered, but exceeded by the inimitable, Claire Underwood. In her, I found a female lead whose fashion sense actually enhanced her character, and let me tell you, the woman knocks it out of the park with corporate style.
With awards season over and spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to shake things up a bit in the celebrity fashion world. We, for one, couldn't be happier! After a sea of monochroma...
It's no secret that I have built my wardrobe on renewed and renewable staples and a mostly monochromatic palette. The truth is that no matter how much you have got your style figured, it simply can't stay the same... even the most basic basics evolve over time and you could very quickly look outdated if you didn't adopt new cuts, materials, hemlines, heel height. So what's on my radar for Spring?
Recently I've seen a few young women wearing tights as bottoms out in the world. I'm talking about actual tights. As in pantyhose. As in, pulled tight over the buttocks and somewhat transparent. As in, I've seen things I cannot un-see.

No matter how your life changes, your style will always be yours. So why would you ever wear something that didn't make you feel good? Style is what you make it. It's personal and it should reflect who you are. So if you're not feeling that pair of Uggs or just don't feel comfortable in skinny jeans -- don't wear them.
