Oh wonderful and powerful Sara, do you have any tips for winter lip care?

when it comes to me, starting with a compliment will never hurt, but it is my absolute pleasure to pass along my three-step formula for preventing dry lips. no one wants to kiss that kind of a pucker during any season, am i right? i’m right. 

  • step 1: dampen a toothbrush and lightly slough off any dead skin on the lips. seriously, don’t be harsh with this. stop when you feel raw.
  • step 2: apply a thick layer of this stuff before bedtime to act as a lip mask.
  • step 3: when wearing lipstick, aim for one with a moisturizing formula like nars’ sheer lipstick (“damage" is one of my everyday go-to shades).

Hi Sara, I was wondering if you could give some advice on wearing actual tennis shoes with normal clothes? I've decided it's time to transition into shoes that won't destroy my feet, but I'm wary of buying expensive sneakers and not wearing them because I don't know how to style them.

when in doubt, go the simple route; what i mean is that if you are ever unsure of how to style a particular item in your closet, pair it with solid colors and classic, looks-good-with-everything styles of clothing. check out the girls shown above to see what i mean.

Hi Sara, I'm going to Paris this summer and I don't want to look like a tacky tourist. Any ideas for stylish clothes that pack well? Thanks a bunch!

first, let me tell you how jealous i am of you right now: super jealous. second, this is a completely understandable dilemma but one that can be easily solved. my advice is short, sweet, and simple — just stick to neutral shades and classic shapes.

  1. worn-in denim or khaki shorts
  2. dressy sweatshirt for cool nights
  3. a chiffon tank top roll ups without losing shape
  4. cross-body bags with inner pockets are key
  5. comfortable, breathable flats

Hi Sara! I'm a design student moving to Brooklyn for the summer for an internship. Any tips on where to go for affordable clothing for a gal's first gig in the city? Working for a design firm, I'm not limited to a pencil skirt + blazer get-up everyday, so I'm excited to find a balance between professional, somewhat relaxed, and unique.

congrats on the summer gig! i am sure you are psyched. keeping in mind that you’ll want to look put together despite a more casual work environment, i’ve highlighted some stores that should allow you to create an appropriate wardrobe.

Hey! Hope your recovery is still going well. I'm wondering if you can recommend a classic red lipstick- my lipsticks are either too dark, too orange, or too pink, purple, etc. I love them but I need to beef up my "basic" make up options.

thank you for checking in! i am doing much better. i can also definitely pass along some suggestions and commend you for your request — you can never have too many reds! obviously, mama doesn’t want to get canned, so all of the shades are by nars

  1. scandal lip gloss
  2. majella satin lip pencil
  3. jungle red semi-matte lipstick
  4. rose gitane lip gloss

I'm trying to find dupes of Birkenstocks that are less than actual Birkenstocks! Do you have any suggestions?

with #normcore being a *thing,* double-strap sandals with a cork footbed are e-ver-y-where right now and priced for a variety of budgets, so i was able to find a handful of styles for you. i also threw in a beautiful splurge just in case you were feeling sassy.

my latest obsession in loungewear — and yes, i am obsessed, particularly since a majority of my life thus far has been spent in jersey — is actually a spin-off of the loft. did you know that ann taylor’s little sister launched a loungewear label? think of lou & grey as the cool older cousin, quietly falling between the two ann inc. brands with its slouchy, comfy styles well within your budget. and considering the frequent 40% sales, you can and should get on-board this train whenever you are able.

i typically care thismuch about celebrities and what they are wearing, but according to jezebel, taylor swift and i are twinning with our talbots sweater. i received mine in celebration of valentine’s day but since t. swift loves love so much, she was just spreading feelings on a regular ole wednesday. okay, carry on with your day.
