Style Obituaries: What’s Out Now

If you’re anything like me, you’re pretty quick to follow trends. Sure, you may wait a season for the runway look to be available in Zara, but you’re generally an early adapter. It’s important to have a strong sense of personal style, but you can’t help what comes in and out of stores. For this reason, it’s up to you to decide what trends are worth investing in and ignoring. Personally, i’m reluctant to give into a trend that involves…

Our Summer Crush

Last summer we were into chokers and bell bottom jeans, but this year it's all about statement earrings and bell sleeves! If you're under 5'5 like I am, there is no doubt you're excited about this.  Don't worry about it going out of style anytime soon, we see this trend extending into the fall and winter. This week, we shot some of Crush Boutique's hottest new pieces for late summer, and we are LOVING what they're serving. With a little touch…

Tell Me I’m Your National Anthem

The fourth of July is next week, and you've probably been scrambling trying to find the perfect patriotic bathing suit to rep while crushing spiked seltzers on your friend's boat (hint: just go to target.) If the ocean (or lake... i guess?) isn't on your priority list, you'll probably be having a city BBQ with your besties. In that case, you're probably seeking something cotton, red or white or blue, and stylish. Gotchu. This week I shot with my new…

One-Piece Wonders: #BBBSwim

By now you've surely seen her textured, figure- flattering leggings on multitudes of women in Boston's hottest gyms and studios. You might own a few pairs yourself and you may have even taken the class that started it all, Booty by Brabants. Kelly Brabants, fitness instructor and fashion designer, is the one we can thank for improving the workout-wear and derrières of Boston babes everywhere. She's created a cult-like following, drawing inspiration from the Brazilian booty in both her workout class…

Culottes & Cult Gaia

For about a year I have been obsessing over the Cult Gaia arc bag. I always assumed, that like most of the bags my favorite fashion bloggers wear, it's probably $500+. It served as my inspiration (it's a literal piece of art, they sell it on MoMa's website), but didn't seem like a viable purchase. Then one day, in a weak moment of lust, I actually clicked on the link and realized the bag is just $140. $10 under budget for Ben…

A Stylish Start

As a self-diagnosed creature of habit, all of the changes that are presently happening in my life would typically throw me for a loop. Graduating from college, moving out of my beloved North End neighborhood (okay, this one is especially upsetting), and having to apply to jobs in my desired industry are all daunting affairs. I may have no idea what city I'll end up in or what job I'll land, but I do know that I'll be spending a month in London this…

The Activist Shopping Guide

It hasn’t even been three months since Trump took office and already I’ve gained weight, lost friends, and spent the majority of my paychecks on feminist apparel. In hopes of reinvigorating my wardrobe and pissing off my racist uncle, I’ve searched the Internet high and low for the highest quality and nastiest items. Grab your wallet and spend your hard earned cash on items that are fighting for you to make more. Shopping is resisting, so make like Retta and…

VB x Target Launches Sunday

As I type this, I am hyperventilating through a brown paper lunch bag in anticipation for Sunday's launch of the Victoria Beckham x Target collaboration. I am certain I will immediately regret writing this article upon completion because I fear you will all congest Target's website on Sunday and ruin my chances of snatching up the clothing items I need way more than you do. Victoria Beckham is my spirit animal. But since all is fair in love and fashion I…

The Revitalization of Italian Fashion

Ahhh, Italy. How is it possible that a single nation can be credited for giving the world pizza, pasta, and Prada? The Italians do a lot of things well, and fashion is one of those things. Unfortunately, in recent years the prominence of Italian high-fashion labels was falling by the wayside due to a lack of ingenuity and increased competition from foreign brands. However, in the past year or so, the Italian fashion scene has been given a breath of…
