Break Time: All About The Clothes

I’m in major spring cleaning mode, and the target for this weekend is my closet. The process of organizing my wardrobe got me thinking about clothes, which led to me searching about clothes, a lot. The three articles below are the result of the internet rabbit hole I fell into while I was absolutely not supposed to be working on something else.

Fashion history can be fascinating or just plain weird—we’re talking live reptile brooches here, people. BuzzFeed collected 71 of the wildest clothing facts out there. I found number 66 to be particularly interesting.

Style trends also have a crazy history of their own. The Smithsonian covers the current “Trend-ology” exhibit at the Museum at FIT. I never knew the tumultuous origins of yellow.

I’ve heard of sales inducing riots, but never the actual pieces of clothing themselves. Mental Floss proves how wrong I was.

Why You Need a Fanny Pack. No, Really.


I’m on team fanny pack! Clare V. Supreme Fanny Pack in aqua.

Every season there’s at least one trend that divides the fashion world. Lines are drawn and opinions run strong. This spring, that trend is the return of the fanny pack. Ask either side what they think of them and you’ll get a strangely intense reaction. Pro-packers tout the hands-free ease and new modern styles, while the anti-fannies just can’t get over the ’80s stigma. So it’s with the risk of being labeled a flip-flopper that, after several months of being against them, I’m announcing that I’m solidly a friend of fanny.


The start of my journey to fanny pack fandom: Val’s Erin Dana fanny pack.

It all started, as do most major belief reversals, with someone close to me. My fellow writer Val bought a black Erin Dana fanny pack. At first I laughed at the ridiculous notion that something I associated with scrunchies and tapered-leg jeans could be cool. But she kept going on and on about how great it was—it went with everything, it was so easy, she was no longer burdened with a purse—and it started to sound... great. Perhaps that would have been it, but sensing my curiosity, she asked the age-old question: “Want to try it?”


A snake-print pack works for day or night.

Once I wrapped the chain around my waist, I knew I was switching camps. Fanny packs have always had practicality on their side. But now, they also have style. The latest renditions, like Val’s Erin Dana, are sleeker than their earlier counterparts. I decided to show my support with a single-pocket pack in bright blue from Clare V. A fringed Cleobella belt bag is also sitting in my cart, just waiting for festival season, because, as any fanny fan knows, one is never enough. I try to be respectful of everyone’s positions, I really do. But as someone who’s seeing fanny packs in a whole new light, I urge you to follow Val’s advice and just try one.

Ask Shopbop: Shift Dresses for Spring


Shed the layers with a spring-ready Giambattista Valli tunic dress.

We’re in the starting stages of spring, meaning summer isn’t far away. And while this is exciting—especially after this long winter—shedding those cold-weather layers can be a little daunting. My suggestion? Slip into a simple shift dress.

Fashion icons from Audrey to Jackie looked to this universally flattering style for both casual and dressy springtime occasions. The frame-skimming silhouette is chic, yet ultra-forgiving to a figure that’s been covered up for five months. Traditionally sleeveless and cut above the knee, shifts ease you into mini season and prepare you for bare arms. But for those of you who need a bit more time, look to styles with short sleeves and sheer paneling. You’ll still get the fresh feel without the exposure. (A little self-tanner never hurts either!)

Seen @ Shopbop: Simply Striped

My closet (and my Shopbop My Hearts section) is full of stripes. I lean toward the preppy—lots of navy and white and thick-banded rugby styles—but have never really met a neat set of lines I didn’t like. And I know I’m not alone. One look at these pictures from around the office and you can tell my fellow Shopboppers feel the same.
