My Must-Have Makeup Faves

I love the idea of makeup--transformation, enhancement, etc.--but am usually pretty lazy about actually using it. My daily routine is pretty simple: I make sure my skin looks good, my lashes are curled, and hurriedly swipe on a lip stain as I’m rushing out the door. Sometimes I’ll do a red lip or a basic cat eye, but these are the products I manage to use regularly: 1 > YSL Touch Eclat in 6.5 | I

Style // Beret Baby

Even though they weren't of the highly coveted raspberry variety (the kind you find in a secondhand store), berets made a surprising show on the Fall-Winter runways: Fay, Paul & Joe, Gucci, Luisa Beccaria and Gucci.

How To // Planning for Magazine Editorial Coverage

A few weeks ago, I was in a shop pulling wardrobe for a series of photo shoots, and the store owner asked me: “Is this for December?” I was floored. “Oh no, that’s been finished.

If O-town tour tees and old school Starter jackets make you nostalgic too, stop by the Retro Jones 513 booth at the City Flea Holiday Market this Saturday from 5-10pm, and stay for the Light Up OTR festivities. See you there!

Shop Around // Kendra Scott

I was initially introduced to the line via Thread, when we met with their marketing rep about hosting last month’s Sip ‘n Shop.

Luckily, the store in the new Liberty Center is a treasure trove of colorful stones and

Shop Around // Victor Athletics

What do you do when you’ve founded a successful denim line and want to create something to help American factories while producing affordably priced sustainable fashion?

Following an extremely successful Kickstarter campaign,

Watch the #ThroneProject

You ever see Pinterest photos of people randomly posing on vintage furniture in the middle of a lavender field/abandoned farmhouse/city street and think “Why?” or “Who are these people?” Well, I’ll be one of those people. That’s thanks to the #ThroneProject, a collaboration of creative minds and beautiful places organized by Queen City Vignette, a Cincinnati event rental and design company with a vintage twist. They’ve brought together a group of Cincinnati style bloggers (including the babes from Thread
