Can MK Make a Comeback?

In fashion one day you’re in, and the next day you’re out. Nobody knows this better than former Project Runway judge Michael Kors. It’s no secret that Kors has definitely peaked, but can he make a comeback? It’s 2011 and freshman year of college. At the time, having a Michael Kors handbag was critical. Fast forward to 2016 and literally nobody cares anymore. In more offish terms, their stock peaked in early 2014, when all the late bloomers spent their…

Matcha Madness

Health and wellness trends move almost as quickly as fashion trends these days, and it can be hard to keep track of each new lifestyle fad that is being introduced day in and day out. Much to all of our surprise,  parallel to the "athleisure" trend of the moment are people who are actually working on their health and fitness and not just dressing like it. If 2015 was the year of green juices, then 2016 is certainly the year of…

Tori’s Tuesday Playlist — 008

I have a hunch that our team here at Mack In Style and a lot of our readers would not consider themselves a part of #fitfam and we are all definitely pretending to care about Olympic sports we only hear about once every four years. Yes, Katie Ledecky and Simone Biles are leaving everybody in the dust this summer but today I'd like to focus on a truly inspirational team, the Filipino divers (stop what you are doing and watch this commentary).

Our Fall Handbag Roundup

You still have a little summer left to spare, but if you're like us you're probably starting to think about your fall wardrobe. My first selection is always my bag. After all, this is the one part of my outfit that will remain relatively stagnant for months at time. The Loeffler Randall bag in our heading is stunning. A red bag may not be sensible for everyone, but my wardrobe is typically neutral with pops of red and pink (not usually together.) Unlike most…

Tori’s Tuesday Playlist — 007

When I was presented with this week's specific theme I'll be honest, I was genuinely concerned I wouldn't meet my deadline. I thought to myself, "I haven't been in a serious relationship in years, nobody I've dated has ever sang me a song before, what could I possibly know about singing love songs to a significant other?" I'm sure some of you have talented boyfriends and girlfriends who can play instruments or sing well, but we can't all be that…

Mixing Summer & Fall: Mint Julep

You know August is near and summer is coming to an end when you start seeing fall clothes and shoes in almost every store. Whether you’re in denial or not, it’s never too early to start shopping for that fall wardrobe! When styling our most recent shoot with Harvard Square boutique Mint Julep, we had one goal in mind--showcasing outfits that can be bought now and worn later. After trying on leather jackets, sweater dresses, and knee high socks, I…

Wanna Hangout Sometime?

Like many of you, I made the decision to move to a new city post-graduation. In a toss-up between Los Angeles and New York, I chose crowded subway stations over endless miles of car traffic.  Any hesitations I had about moving to a new city were overshadowed by my overwhelming desire to flee Boston. I will forever be grateful for my naive spirit, because moving to New York wasn't as seamless as I'd expected.  To my surprise, one of the…

Tori’s Tuesday Playlist — 006

If you're in your early to mid 20s then chances are the 90s was your holy ground, for hip hop and r&b this era is no different. The women in this playlist are some of the greatest to ever do it because they spoke up and spoke their minds. They were unapologetic about their personalities and controlled their narratives to stand up against a historically male-dominant genre. Salt N Pepa taught me to run my life the way I choose…

TSwift Hate Train

Unless you live in the Amazon, you probably know about the #KimExposedTaylorParty that everyone on the internet is attending right now; a social event significantly less exclusive than Taylor's fourth of July bash. Internet trolls and functional humans alike are stoked that Kim Kardashian's snapchat exposed Swift and proved that Kanye did receive Swift's permission to write a line about her in his song.  I'm not going to write an entire think-piece on this, but I just want to point out a couple of…
