Screenshot from the video, shown here. Girl with Curves' Tanesha Awasthi is a curvy style star to watch -- and she's looking lovely in the recent Refinery29 photoshoot preview, we might add. We're glad to add Tanesha to our must-read list: she adds depth to daily style blogs on Tumblr with a great variety of thrifted and low-cost pieces, plus plenty of color. She's...

Save Your Bag, Save Your Money

People are already shopping for the holidays -- are you? This time, we're looking at opportunities to save ourselves some money so we can actually buy people gifts this time around (insert requisite economy-related grumbling here). Instead of tossing bags that look worse-for-wear, we should be making an effort to keep them somewhat fresh and usable. After all, it's fall, and after this? Brace...

Chloe Canvas Wedge Ankle Boots via Highsnobette There's a lot of bookmarking going on here at StyleCrave, and that includes pieces for the ladies. We're looking at buttery ankle boots in the whirlwind of spring fashion that we'll sadly be unable to wear until the next warm spell. With this sad news in mind, we're gravitating towards some very fashionable booties that do have a link to...

Fall Wear: The Black Watch

Posted by

Black_Watch_Wrapped
Brown leather can get sweaty, ratty, or stained, and while a watch with a brown band is a wardrobe necessity, it needs to have its darker, handsome cousin around -- the all-black watch. A black band and a black face aren't groundbreaking, but if it gets a fresh new look (see above), then you're on the right track. A brilliant watch, black or otherwise, should be worn more than one way, and...

I don't know how anybody does it. But with the official 'Get the Look' app for the new comedy I Don't Know How She Does It, it's now easier to find out how the 'She' from the critically acclaimed bestseller by Allison Pearson actually does do it - which no one really knows how she actually does it. Or something like that. However, the 'Get the Look' app...

Uniform Experiment x Leica D-Lux 5

Leica_uniform_experiment_camera_01
I was more excited about Leica and uniform experiment's collaboration because of the great brown leather pouch than I was about the camera, but that's just me. The whole package is exciting, scheduled for release on May 11th, and looks great. That grained leather pouch has a traditional Leica logo scrawled across the front. Clipped on either side of the small, oblong bag, the Leica camera pouch...

Columbiaknit Scarf

Columbiaknit's been producing their knits since the 1920s, which means they have quality and consumer trust down pat. As someone who'll scream if she sees another “luxury yet made in China” accessory, I'm enjoying the change of pace. This time, Columbiaknit joined forces with Jordan Saylor of Winn Perry in Portland. Slinging this around your neck, even in summer, will work—although you...

Oak's restocking! If you were looking for something on Oak and it wasn't available, this could be your chance. Unfortunately, stores of some of their newly-stocked pieces have already been exhausted. Silent by Damir Doma was brought back to the accessories section on the site. If you're not opposed to leather, then stick to it for traveling—it doesn't wear out like canvas will.

What Do You Think? Denim Geek Online Store

Denim Geek's online store has had a few weeks to get the kinks out, and I've been exploring to see what they've put together. The Denim Geek blog has been a must-stop for me for a while, and it is clear that the Denim Geek guys know their stuff when it comes to jeans and other denim separates. Their choices are worth waiting for, in other words, and you'll enjoy their selection of...

Would You Wear It? Navajo Lace-Ups at Oki-Ni

YMC_navajo_04-horz
Navajo Lace-Ups at Oki-Ni are a good way to get your kicks (literally?) without planning and executing a complex color scheme with the entirety of your closet. I found them during my weekly online shopping excursion, and I got really into them... but I also have a thing for Native blankets and those super-cool Southwestern jackets. If you get trapped outside on a group camping excursion (or if...

Brooklyn Circus for Spring 2011

brooklyn_circus_SS_2011_03
I love Brooklyn Circus, especially after last fall's collection of letterman-style sweaters and collegiate pieces. If there's something I enjoy, it's the pseudo-Yale separates that make me want to eat ivy and row boats. The new spring/summer 2011 drop delivers, too, but in an entirely different way. Brooklyn Circus's newest pieces are a blend of solid fabric along the body, plus a patterned...

Scarves! We all need 'em, and this White Riot Gang editorial in GQ Style Italia has enough panache to leave us wanting a few more for flourishing purposes. Of course, the sense of movement in the spread, shot by Kai Z.Feng, is helped along by jumping, plus wind machines lifting light scarves for extra movement. As for the actual labels in the spread? We have Louis Vuitton, Hermes, and Gucci...

The Epaulet Red Floral Shirt
I admit I'm not always down with the floral print apparel. But that doesn't mean my wardrobe can't make room for one as sweet as the floral print design coming from Epaulet. The standard slim-fit shirt, made up in a nice printed UK cloth, shows off a likable tight pattern of floral, making it a shirt I can easily match with jeans or chinos.
