Five British Based Fashion Brands America Needs to Know

Animal, Leather, and Red – Oh My

Fashion gets its inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. Right when you think it can’t come up with any new ideas, it surprises you.

Five Items That add Baggage to Your Closet

…and what to replace them with! Let’s face it, all of our closets get cluttered, especially if you aren’t in the regular habit of cleaning out clothes. The general rule in fashion is when you do your spring-cleaning, if you haven’t worn it in a year – it goes! Some small exceptions can be made,...
