'The Beginning of all Beauty Is Knowing and Liking Oneself'

Call it the Oprah Effect, but there's no denying that the idea of positivity has a strong hold on our culture. Proponents of positive thinking would have you believe that changing your outlook can cure cancer or help your lotto chances.   read more

8 Grown-Up Charms to Add Flair to Your Handbag

Remember when you were in grade school and your backpack had so many colorful keychains hanging off the zipper that you were pretty sure they weighed more than your books? I miss those days.

From luxury charms resembling our favorite designer to colorful pom-pom-adorned bag charms, these trinkets make us want to start a new collection. Here's why you should, too.   read more

Bright Color in Fall: It's a "Do"

With fall just around the corner, we're programmed to pack up our short shorts, sandals and summer brights and trade them in for sweaters, boots and considerably more subdued colors like beige, navy, gray and black. But the fall collections of top designers show it's still cool to wear bright pops of color in fall. Instead of stowing your pinks, teals and yellows for next year, mix them with fall's traditional cool-down colors to create a runway-ready look that's completely on-trend. Keep these summer staples in your wardrobe rotation as the temperature cools down.   read more
