Pinspiration of the Week: 16 Summer Beauties

As a sunshine devotee, summer solstice is one of my favorite days of the year. Sadly, most of us don't engage in any ancient midsummer rituals anymore (drinking beers at your neighbor's bonfire doesn't count).

Rachel Zoe Catches Flack For Her Son's Long Hair

If it weren't so cruel and circa 1948, we'd laugh at the losers who are calling out Rachel Zoe for her son's long hair and the principal who forced a teenage boy to wash off his eyeliner. But people are seriously freaking out about these innocent acts, as if boys can't be boys unless they're in crew cuts and combat boots.   read more
