Is it Okay to Wear White After Labor Day?

Fashionistas, yesterday at work a group of us started to discuss one of fashion’s oldest rules: one cannot wear white after Labor Day. We pondered this rule for a good 15-20 minutes or so, wondering where this seemingly arbitrary rule originated and why it was so commonly known. We wondered, “why is one’s fashion color […]

Not Your Grandma’s Tweed

Tweed. What exactly is it? Well with a little help from Webster’s, it can be defined as “a rough-surfaced woolen cloth, typically of mixed flecked colors, originally produced in Scotland.” That’s a start. I’ll be honest – until recently, tweed kind of reminded me of something I would’ve see while watching an old episode of Golden […]
