'Tis the season for giving, and one of my all time favorite things to do each year is to adopt a family in need and be their Santa Claus for the holidays. It's that feeling of giving that really puts me in the holiday mood, so I just love when companies give back to their customers. I've seen plenty of hidden camera videos where an airline or a bank surprise a few of their customers, and this year Simon Malls is doing...

This fall/winter season, my most coveted style is the throwback mod look. It was also listed as one of the the hottest trends this season in the Simon/Glamour Lookbook Live. It's full on mini skirts, shift dresses, capes, and, of course, boots to match. It's a great style that pretty much all ages can rock. You can wear a classy shift dress to work, or one with sparkles for a holiday party. For all other days, play up the...

One of my obsessions this season has been the fringe trend. It's just so hot right now and I love it. It's a trend that will keep you going past the holidays and into the spring. From fringe bags to shoes, you can literally find a bit of fringe on almost anything these days. 1) Fringe Skirts -  I'm all about going bold, so a fringe skirt with the extra long fringe like this one by Tamara Mellon has got my name written all...

Now that the temperatures are finally dropping (albeit periodically when those arctic fronts blow through down south), it's always good to be prepared with a proper coat or jacket. These are four styles that you should have at least one of in your closet this winter. 1) Fur Coats - Whether you're into real or faux fur, it's always quite the statement piece. And you can find one in any price range. This Miu Miu...

  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. Here are just a few of my favorites that you should run to the store to get. 1) Over-the-knee boots - Really a style that started as a trend that's just a staple now. My favorite version is the Stuart Weitzman - Highland boot. This boot is everything to me. It can really...

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...
