Today is the day! The Great Gatsby is in theaters now and the fashion of the 20′s is back in a big way! Popsugar gave everyone a look inside Prada’s NYC location where the steps of the store have been transformed into an exhibition space for the absolutely gorgeous costumes from the movie, co-designed by Catherine Martin and Prada. And Tiffany & Co. is selling the stunning headband worn in the film by Carey Mulligan.
The Met Gala was last night and the stars did not disappoint! The theme of the night was “Punk: Chaos in Couture”. You can check out a sneak peek inside the exhibit here. Some stars dabbled in punk, and some went all out. Here are some of our favorites!

We have all been there. We decide we want bangs. We love them. We feel so fresh and on trend. And then they start to annoy you. You find you can’t do anything with them, especially when summer and the humidity roles around. So you bid farewell to your fringe and start the dreaded “growing out” phase. This can be disastrous and frustrating. But thankfully, there are several creative and stylish ways to make the transition go by a little smoother.
HAIR ACCESSORY (our personal favorite, of course):
Coachella: where music and fashion meet! Whether you are going, planning on going in the future, or just wanting to add a little bit of the Coachella cool to your everyday wardrobe, here are the essentials:
With the news yesterday that the cherry blossoms are in full bloom, it had us thinking about what fashion is inspired by these beautiful buds. With the floral trend showing up more so than usual this spring, it hasn’t been too difficult to spot.

Happy Monday all! A bit of a gold rush has made it’s way to the red carpet where hair accessories are concerned. Here are a few of our favorites:
Gemma Arterton’s beautiful, loose updo complete with gold headband is so fresh and modern.
The gorgeous Kerry Washington wearing a subtle, studded gold headband.
This regal style on Jessica Paré(channeling a bit of her Mad Men character) is finished perfectly by adding a hint of sparkle with a thin gold headband making this already stunning actress look like royalty.
This Sunday Mad Men is back and we couldn’t be more excited! Drool worthy fashions (and actors) plus the impeccable writing and performances make this show a must watch in our books. Here are some promo shots for the new season. We can’t wait to see the late ’60′s fashion and style come to life, like psychedelic prints, shorter hemlines, embellishments, and Brigitte Bardot hair!
Check out the stunning hair accessory on Christina Hendricks! Not to mention her dress. We all want to be a Joan, don’t we?

The weather here in DC hasn’t quite warmed up enough to make it feel like spring is upon us. So what better way to shake off the winter blues and get pumped up for warmer days than by adding a little sparkle?

We have clearly been seeing some major sparkle and shine this season and our hair accessory of the day, the Mosaic Headband, is the perfect addition!
A new season always brings new trends. One that we see as being the freshest and most achievable this spring is the Black and White trend that is popping up everywhere! From the runway, to the red carpet, to the sidewalks around the world, the black and white look is sleek, clean, and versatile. Mixing and matching is the fun part, whether you rock one black piece and one white piece or pick contrasting patterns, there are so many fabulous options!
Whatever way you choose to style your blacks and whites, our very popular Amelie headband is the perfect accessory to tie the ultimate spring frock together!

Forget larger-than-life resolutions you just won’t keep. Here, we give you a few tips to help make you even more beautiful in 2013. Most of them are resolutions we try to keep every year, and simple ones, but sometimes we need a little reminder at the start of the year!
Wash your face every night before bed
Floss. Daily. Did you know that brushing alone only cleans about 65 percent of your teeth?
Get rid of your mascara every six months—it’s a breeding ground for bacteria!
Now’s a great time to clean out your makeup bag.
Exfoliate once a week using mild soap and a washcloth or loofah.
Take a multivitamin every day
Clean your lip and eye pencils every month simply by sharpening them
Clean your makeup brushes weekly, since build-up can lead to breakouts or infections
Be sure to wear sunscreen on your face and hands—even in the winter and on cloudy days
As good as they feel, try not to take really steamy showers. Super-hot water tends to dry out your skin
To avoid breakage, don’t comb your hair immediately after you shower. Instead, wrap it in a towel and let it dry that way for 10 minute
Work out at least three times a week for a naturally glowing complexion, not to mention, a hot body
Start using a balancing toner. Balanced skin is happy skin and happy skin is healthy skin.
Eat more good-for-your-skin foods like salmon, almonds, and berries
Velvet is feminine and soft and every piece made of it has a certain vintage feel. Velvet dresses and suits which flooded the Fall/ Winter 2012/ 2013 runways looked wonderful and reminded us about the time when ladies loved looking like ladies and androgyny was never even heard of.
