  Tis the season for boots! It's time to make sure you're stocked up with some of the hottest boot styles this season, from chelsea to over the knee.

Model: Irene Kim. Photo by Nylon.   Dyed hair in bright colors has been a thing now for the last couple of years. Some think it started with Katy Perry, or maybe Kelly Osborne... not that who did it first matters. If we're really going back, I'd say it was definitely influenced by Harajuku, Anime, and K-pop bands. But ultimately, it seems that it's definitely here to stay. At least through next season. From Nicole...

So to go completely opposite from my last obsession post, I'm now loving lace-ups. There's just something undeniably sexy about this style of shoe. It can be a heel or a wedge, but the more skin it shows on top... the better. Yes, I'm still talking about shoes here. Also the key is for the lace to be long enough to be able to wrap around your ankle several times at top. These shoes can dress up a pair of boyfriend jeans...

New York Fashion Week went by a flash. Some of you may remember that I decided to make the trek there in early September to have my very first NYFW experience. What an experience it was that this post is so late. You can just say that I'm still in recovery mode. My first stop after arrival was a visit to celebrity designer Gemma Kahng's studio and take a look at her fall/winter collection.It was fur-licious to say the...

  With Normcore pushing through the fashion world as a full-fledged thing now, I have to say that I'm loving the fact that flats are becoming so hot right.
