The Most Comfy Work Pants Ever

I don’t know about you, but I just want to be comfortable. Life is too short to worry about your pants digging into you or not stretching in all the places you need them to. Kyle and I are are obsessed with Ponte pants this season. Our favorites are from Theory, NYDJ and Vince Camuto. What is Ponte you ask?

But this fabric is so strong …

Spring 2015 Trend #3: All Tied Up

This spring, designers found inspiration from the east. Obi belts were seen around the waists of models at Dior, Celine, Alexander Wang, Marni, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and more. An Obi, which translates directly to “sash” in Japanese, is the belt typically seen around kimonos and karate gis. Think of artfully tied ribbons around your vests, coats, dresses, and tops. Not only is the obi belt a super interesting accessory, it also flatters your waistline giving you the appearance of an hourglass figure. See for yourself why Vogue calls these belts the “ultimate power dressing for spring.“ . 1. For the Beginners …
