Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen Are Bringing Back This Nostalgic Accessory

source site It’s not too difficult to link the feeling of nostalgia with Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen—but perhaps it’s not for the reasons we’d assume. Instead, it’s nostalgia that’s been a huge inspiration for the luxury designers over the past 10 years since they launched Elizabeth and James. It ties closely into the design and curation of their very first brick-and-mortar location, and it’s found in the notes of their perfumes. And today marks the latest product arrival with a huge sentimental appeal.

The 200 Series collection is the first-ever watch design from Elizabeth and James. “It took nearly two years of development,” Ashley tells us over email. “We researched the market and knew we wanted to take a different approach from both a design, functionality, and distribution perspective.”

While the design is certainly different with its rubber strap and sleek mineral crystal face, it’s not entirely new, per se. “We wanted to incorporate this technology that is virt...

This Is the Woman Behind the Most Insane VS Angel Wings

go site Now that you’ve seen all the wildest looks from the 2017 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, straight from its taping in Shanghai, it’s less than a week until it all comes together for the big primetime TV premiere. But while you’re waiting, let’s back it up all the way to July, when we first met with the woman responsible for creating arguably the most iconic pieces worn on the runway. Sorry, we’re not talking underwear—we’re taking wings. Marian “Killer” Hose—yes, you can call her Killer—has been working with Victoria’s Secret for years, and on Monday alone, several of her creations were worn by the likes of Jasmine Tookes, Lais Ribeiro (in the $ 2M Fantasy Bra no less), and Sui He. Above, take a look inside her studio in Brooklyn, where the magic happens before an Angel gets her wings.

blank Up next, take a look at what the first Victoria’s Secret fashion show looked like. Hint: It was very different.

Rye Thoughts: Jack Daniel’s Rye

Jack Daniel's Rye


As the weather gets colder my thoughts of Bourbon turn more to thoughts of Rye.  Distilled much like Bourbon, except the corn is swapped out for rye, in this case 70% rye.  That rye, yes the same rye that you find in your rye bread, adds a nice warm, spicy flavor making it the perfect winter drink.

The Jack Daniel’s Rye has a sweet nose, like Jack Daniel’s Bourbon, but those rye notes come through too.  The taste is surprising as it is spicier than the nose, the pepper like qualities show through nicely.  The finish is short and very dry, a nice balance to any of the sweetness.

I am enjoying this new product from Jack Daniel’s and I can see this Rye making its way into many dry, rye, Manhattan’s this winter.

*This product was provided to Brostrick as a sample but that in no way affected this review in any way.

19 Long Cardigans to Layer Under Your Coat This Winter

Sweater season calls for options: chunky cable-knit crewnecks, wooly turtlenecks, fleece popovers, and one of our current favorites of the moment, long cardigans. The substantial style is a little like a coat you can wear inside—and outside, too, if you happen to live in L.A.

Duster-length versions add a bit of drama to an everyday T-shirt-and-jeans outfit, while thigh-length cardis make even lightweight dresses seasonally appropriate. Snuggle up in a cozy neutral-hued style by Zara or Kenzo, or add a bit of welcome color to your wardrobe with Iro's ice-blue knit or Marni's fun stripes. Either way, you'll thank yourself once winter officially rolls around.

We Just Ditched Low-Key Dressing for These OTT Looks

This holiday season, we're embracing maximalism in a major way by pulling out all the sartorial stops at every occasion we'll be RSVP'ing to. We're talking clashing prints, embellished shoes, and, of course, glamorous statement-making jewelry from Kendra Scott's holiday collection, all of which lean into the '70s vibe we saw take over the fall runways. Oversize hoops, layered necklaces, and glitzy drop earrings—yep, it's all here. Dare to go out of your cocktail-party comfort zone? These bold, on-trend looks should do the trick… Just don't blame us when you win best dressed.

Afraid of a little glitz and glam? Not us—this season, we're leaning into anything that sparkles. Crystal chain earrings are fabulous alone, but pair them with a matching wrap necklace and we're really talking. This necklace gets bonus points for its versatility: Loop it around your neck to create a loose choker, wear it undone down your back (with an updo to draw eyes to the bling, of course), or even layer...

How to Wear Cropped Jeans When You’re Under 5’2″

Cropped jeans have become 2017’s biggest denim trend—and my greatest sartorial nightmare as a woman under 5’2”. What makes for a flattering ankle-length flare for taller women is mostly lost on my petite frame. Yet if there’s one thing I know about myself, it’s that I’m always up for a challenge, and mastering the art of cropped jeans is one I’m currently ready to face. Armed with the right tips and tricks, petite women can take on this denim trend too. To help, I tapped Jenny Wang, founder of The Petite Studio, for her expert tips on pulling off cropped pants.

“Worry about the fit first rather than the length. Find a pair that fits you perfectly in all of the right places and makes you feel really good,” Wang suggests. “Worry about the hem last because you can always cut [the jeans] for a raw hem or get them tailored if you need to.”

Instead of ruling out styles that aren’t specifically petite, says Wang, “Get creative!” Many pairs can be rolled up or cu...

20 Striped Dresses to Wear for Every Occasion

As far as prints go, stripes are a crowd favorite. And it's easy to see why: they're more interesting than solids, but still a cinch to style, and depending on what kind you choose—chunky Where's Waldo stripes, skinny pinstripes, asymmetrical lines—they can look preppy, quirky, or businesslike. Striped dresses are particularly essential this season, providing a one-and-done outfit you can pair with fall boots, black tights, sherpa-lined jackets, and more.

Choose a sweater dress for a comfy weekend look that's perfect for apple picking or Sunday brunch, and opt for a belted shirtdress for something a little more polished than jeans at the office (or, if you want to take a cue from street-style stars, belting one of these over jeans is also a smart bet).

Below, shop 20 striped dresses for every style and occasion.
