I recently just moved into a new house, so in-between planning for the Home + Garden Show, I'm organizing and designing my new space. I have one child with another on the way in a few months, so it's important to me that my home is comfortable and inviting but also functional for a growing family. Needless to say, home design means everything to me right now!
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.

Israel's has recently banned "too-skinny" models requiring they must have a BMI of at least 18.5 in order to work. There are very strict rules about using models who fall below the magic number. However, this ruling is unfair. BMI is, after all, not always an indicator of health -- there have been many publications that have proven that. For example, people with very light bones and athletes are more likely to fall out of said number, and still be relatively healthy. In addition, one can meet these minimum requirements, yet still look extremely thin -- muscle, after all, weighs more than fat.

I won entrance into the pre-shop for the highly coveted Margiela collection at H&M the night before it opened to the public. We had four in our group, but it was everyone for themselves on the second floor. I did quite well climbing through racks and saying "sorry" compulsively to trick people into thinking I was polite and not a blood-hungry Margiela fiend.
As the temperature drops, there's nothing better than throwing on a great sweater to keep you warm. I've realized that there are three things I always consider when hunting for the perfect sweater. As a matter of fact, these three things can also be applied to any other tops, jackets or coats you may be considering.
