She likes to be as high up as possible. Like “within a foot of the ceiling” high.

Loved this video. Period.

Looking to add a new color to your wardrobe palette? Angie tells you how to do it seamlessly.

For years I felt ashamed for having a body. Embarrassed to have big boobs. Embarrassed to be anything but tiny and perfect. Embarrassed to be anything bigger than a dainty wisp of air. I felt like taking up physical space in this world made me both vulnerable and too powerful.”

As an Upper Midwest resident living in a drafty old bungalow, here’s what I’ve learned about slippers: They’re useless to me unless they cover my ankles. Sweater-knit Muk Luks are always a safe bet, though I’m partial to fuzzy styles myself.

A plaid jumpsuit with lapels? Sounds odd, but looks amazing on Ranti.

The New York Times inches toward adopting gender-neutral pronouns and courtesy titles.

One of my holiday gifts to myself was this Giles & Brother railroad spike cuff. I’ve wanted one for years, and was thrilled to see that the gunmetal version is made in the U.S.

The details of this belted blazer outfit make it marvelous: Scrunched sleeves, bracelet and watch, cuffed jeans.

An answer to the question: What has feminism accomplished?

“MIT’s the Climate CoLab and NIKE, Inc. have teamed up in a new initiative that seeks novel and well thought-out ideas on how to engage industries, designers, product creators and the public in valuing, demanding and adopting lower impact materials.” Submit proposals here by 1/29. (Cheers, Sara)

Ordinarily, anything given the label “swing jacket” makes me run for my life … but I tried this Fair Indigo organic swing jacket for kicks, and it’s a great layering piece worn closed.

Katherine’s studded shoes tie together her blush blouse and black full skirt, creating a modern-retro vibe.

From a short interview with makeup artist Pat McGrath: “My mother was a keen follower of all things related to fashion and beauty. … Her obsession with cosmetics came from a combination of thrift and the lack of available makeup for dark skin, which fueled her creativity. Back then, we might find one shadow color per month that worked with our pigmentation.” SJP also weighs in on the subject of transformation.

On About.com I gave tips for finding pants that fit, and suggested spring trends you can buy and wear right now.

What does it mean to love yourself unconditionally?

Kellie layers blacks up top, and finishes her elegant ensemble with dark mauve suede booties.

When my stylist was on maternity leave, I worked with another fellow at my salon and he got me hooked on Oribe’s Supershine Moisturizing Cream. The stuff is breathtakingly expensive, though, so I’ve been buying brand new via eBay. It’s possibly the only product in the universe that can make my super thick, coarse hair feel soft.

A camel leather coat and leopard heels bring out the best in a simple black jumpsuit.

On the Fox 9 Buzz, I talked about ways to make your summer clothes work in winter.

“Yes, in the year 2015 a living legend like Carrie Fisher – author, playwright, screenwriter and actor extraordinaire, as well as a brutally funny human being who has been unashamed and unabashed about her flaws and struggles – is still being told she isn’t good enough because of how she looks. Ah, to be a woman in the modern era. Or anytime, really.”
