Maje’s Judith Milgrom Designs for All the Women You Are

Interviews Style

In the morning you’re Mom or Wifey or, usually, running late. In the afternoon you’re the boss—even if you’ve not quite risen to that status on the org chart. In the evening you might be a dinner companion or the cook or (a lucky) someone’s date. No matter the day, you’re never just one role. Which is why, most mornings, getting dressed is tricky.

Maje founder Judith Milgrom instinctively understands this. That’s why we’re thrilled to be carrying the Parisian label’s fall 2017 collection at Nordstrom. Trust us, playing all your parts will be so much easier when dressed in these contemporary, feminine styles.

Behind the Brand: The Veronica Beards on Their New (Extremely Flattering) Denim Collection

Interviews Style Video

Families aren’t always formed by genetics and upbringing. Sometimes they develop through shared affinities, creating non-biological kinships—families forged by bond, not by blood.

For sisters-in-law Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Miele Beard, founders of their mutually eponymous label Veronica Beard, that connection arose through a common love of fashion, specifically American sportswear—and that they married brothers.

We recently spoke with the designers about their new denim collection. Seems they share a love of good jeans, if not genes.

Sandro Founder Evelyne Chetrite Has the Definitive Answer on How to Dress Parisian post image

Sandro Founder Evelyne Chetrite Has the Definitive Answer on How to Dress Parisian

Interviews Style

Perhaps no other culture holds such coveted fashion appeal. “How to dress like a French woman” is a directive topic in many glossies. And while unanimous opinion has it that Gaulish gals always look put together yet effortless, it’s ironic that the world strives to emulate what comes to them so easily.

Sandro founder Evelyne Chetrite helped us put our finger on just what it is about French style that’s so desirable. Through both her chic example and our conversation, we now understand that our attempt to look French is so not, well, French. According to Chetrite, the secret is: don’t try too hard, but maybe put on some pearls à la Prince.

Real Weddings Wedding Dresses Weddings

Earlier this May, high in the San Bernardino Mountains near Lake Arrowhead, Jessica and Randy tied the knot at a romantic creekside cabin resort, surrounded by their closest friends and family.

Tell us about the location.

We knew we wanted to get married in the mountains from the moment that Randy and I got engaged. The mountains and the outdoors were always our go-to while we were dating, and of course, Randy proposed in the mountains. We knew we wanted an outdoor, rustic-elegant wedding, and Pine Rose was the perfect venue. Hidden Creek at Pine Rose Cabins is a secluded venue surrounded by massive trees, with a beautiful creek that runs into a pond.

Q&A with Bumble and bumble HQ: How to Lock in Dreamy Summer Hair, Anywhere

Beauty

Every year, we embrace summer’s warmer weather with visions of sexy beach hair—only to realize halfway through the ever-intensifying heat waves that we’ve spent a lot more time commuting to the office than lounging on the beach. Exhibit A: our flat (or frizzy) hair.

So how do we rock a sexy ‘do in the middle of summer if we’re not living the Baywatch dream? With scorching temps and humid hot zones from the Eastern Seaboard to the Hawaiian islands, we thought we’d better consult with a legit hair pro before we stressed another frizzed-out tress.  Enter Bronwen Robinson, executive director of Global Brand Artistry at Bumble and bumble in New York, to answer all our summer hair queries.

It’s pretty clear pretty quickly that A.L.C. founder and creative director Andrea Lieberman is what you might call a cool chick. She likes music—mostly hip-hop and reggae. She runs her own business. She digs—and designs—clothes that are confident, relaxed and modern.

We briefly spoke with Andrea about her design principles and the brand that bears her name—well, her initials.

Any working woman not already familiar with the label Tibi is at a serious professional disadvantage. Amy Smilovic’s line of sophisticated, modern styles could be our uniform—and we wouldn’t mind a bit. The designer understands what women need to feel empowered; it dates back to her first splurge on a DKNY power suit.

Hear about her design ethos and what excites her about the next generation of customers in the video below.
