As Hotels Want To Brand You, I Opt To Remove My Inky Mistake

The travel industry may still be hurting, but that hasn't stopped the flow of those creative juices. Venice Beach's Hotel Erwin has targeted the alterna-crowd (because they don't have full-time jobs and can therefore afford to jet off at any moment?) by now offering a tattoo voucher when you book a night's stay. Coincidentally, I am of the opposite mindset of the Erwin and have opted to get my ink removed. It's been about an eternity since I began the process of erasing the mistake from my back in the hopes that I may someday flaunt a strapless dress without having to field questions about why the word 'Me' permanently resides on my body. (Note: this was supposed to be my astrological sign, Virgo, but that didn't work out so well.) I have diligently endured laser removal sessions at Reflections Center in Livingston, NJ for the past several months, and they have been thorough and professional at explaining the process, and making the experience as comfortable as a laser to the back can be. Unfortunately, patience is a virtue if you are looking to remove a tattoo. After 7 sessions, Me has yet to morph into a distant memory. However, I would still recommend Reflections if you're set on ridding yourself of a tattoo. For those who can't swing a field trip to the Garden State, or don't currently have the financial means for the procedure (they can cost upwards of $250 a session), a temporary option is to browse our concealers guide for a heavy-duty product that can camouflage any heart, star, or tribal symbol you've come to regret.

Ramy The Brow Master Will Save Even The Most Pathetic Of Arches

At the wise age of 14, I decided to temporarily rid myself of Brooke Shields-esque eyebrows and try out the then-trendy pencil thin look, assuming they would simply grow back. Well, you know the old saying about "when you assume.." Basically they never returned. Well, they returned, but as two weird, crooked, unflattering arches.  Yes, a sad mystery. So when I opted to visit Ramy, the brow guru, at his spa in NYC to try and tame my poor brows, I was paranoid they might completely fall out.  Much to my pleasant surprise,  he made my brows look pretty darn amazing. Armed with a tweezer, Ramy plucked them into tip-top shape, finishing off with his signature Perfect Brow Wand that contains a highlighter on the other end. Check out all of Ramy's products at ramybeautytherapy.com, along with his entire line of good-for-your-skin makeup.

How To: Wear A Vest, So As Not To Resemble A Groomsman

The vest. We are eyeing it everywhere. Yet like many a fall trend (ahem.. harem, jumpsuit), it looks good from afar, but we get it home and the item befuddles us. Well, not anymore. Exaggerated sizes will be the most fun to style - whether that means draped, long, or boyfriend. A snug, classic fit can be a little too Annie Hall. Pair your vest with a sheer, feminine blouse in a muted color, and choose either dark wash or black skinny jeans. This will keep your ensemble dressy, but not 90s female tuxedo dressy. Slip on some fun studded booties in a contrasting color to help liven up your palette, and store your evening makeup, etc. in a colored clutch (without too much embellishment).

An All-Weather Friend That Doesn’t Secretly Hope You Age Poorly

What: Prescriptives All-Weather Friend ($26.50) Why: I used to flock towards the sun in the summer like a moth to a massive, fiery flame - whether it was shining down on me at the beach or in the form of fluorescent lights inside a New Jersey tanning bed. It didn't matter; a tan was totally hot. But now, past the age of 25, that same tan makes me look wrinkly, or will in a few short years. Therefore, my new best bud from July through August is Prescriptives' All-Weather Friend, which provides a hefty dose of SPF 40 and manages to make my skin look insanely good. I even slather it on at night. Just in case that reading lamp has the potential to give me crow's feet.

How To Wear: A Jumpsuit (If You Are Not A Painter Or In The Air Force)

Jumpsuits rank up there with harem pants as a trend that frightens yet intrigues at the same time. We see them in shop windows looking fabulous on faceless mannequins, but wonder how in the world one could actually manage to show up at a party without resembling Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Here's how: Pick one that's not entirely full-length, and has a waist. This will break up the silhouette and flatter the body. Accessorize like crazy in order to balance the draped fabric. Layer two necklaces and add a strong cuff to make your ensemble evening-appropriate.  Nude heels are always a wise choice for summer, and a subtly patterned clutch will make the whole outfit come together.

What To Wear To: The Company Picnic You Are Totally Looking Forward To

Ah, the company picnic. An obligatory event that eats up your Saturday and forces you to see quirky (creepy) co-workers outside their normal habitat most likely donning inappropriate or outright dorky attire. But since you have to go, arrive looking casual, conservative, and of course, stylish. A pair of solid bermudas are a safe option as your boss may force you to participate in a wiffle ball game or a three-legged race, and that sundress you considered would prove too risky. Wear with a lightweight, loose-fitting blouse that you can tuck in. Add a belt to look more pulled together, and slip on some colorful wedges instead of too-casual flip-flops. Store your camera (joking - as if you'd want to remember the day) in a structured, classy straw tote and don't forget your shades to hide those rolling eyes. Have fun!

How To Wear Harem Pants (Or, How Not To Be Scared Of Harem Pants)

Yes, we know harem pants are a touchy subject. But like it or not, they're probably not going anywhere fast. So we'd like to jump in and show you how to pull them off - figuratively, that is. Because you really shouldn't be scared. First, choose a cropped pair (no diaper versions, or any that graze the ankle thus resembling pajama pants). You'll want to counter the slouchiness of the pants with structure on top, so opt for a modern straight-cut boyfriend blazer along with a simple, yet dressy, blouse. To keep with the modern theme, choose sharp angled accessories, and shoes that will make a statement against the black. Carry a fun clutch and you've got an evening ensemble so much more exciting than your safe black dress. Aqua Jersey Harem Pants ($58) Vince Lightweight Boyfriend Jacket ($440) Bi La Li Silk Origami Top ($185 from $370) Long Geometric Necklace ($28) Striped Foldover Clutch ($39.50) Luella Strappy Platform Sandal ($145) Now that you've got the trend down pat, check out more options in our guide to harem pants.

The September Issue: Icy Stares, Fur, And (Gasp) A Necklace Worn More Than Once

There's been a whole lot of buzz over the soon-to-be-released (August 28th) documentary about the inner workings of Vogue as they prepared for the September 2007 issue. As we noted last week, the fashion folk have been scrambling to get their hot little hands on bootleg copies of R.J. Cutler's swanky documentary.  We've not only gotten a sneak peek, but we've culled together everything else out there on The September Issue, too. I was lucky enough to see it officially, and must say, the hype is for good reason. Mark the release date on your calendars and get ready for drama, humor (believe it or not), and over-the-top fashion from The September Issue. Wintour was perpetually flawlessly dressed, with one accessory of note that almost upstaged her Spartan hair. Almost. Yes, the woman likes fur and wasn't afraid to show it on camera, but what stood out even more was her affinity for these modern, demure jeweled necklaces. Either layered or alone, Anna sported them in several colors with many a floral frock. We haven't been able to nail down the designer just yet (help us out, people), but a similar - albeit extremely pricey - version can be picked up at Barneys ($14,000).  If you want to mimic the look for a fraction of the price, we also love this white stone necklace from Kenneth Jay Lane ($400).

What To Wear With: Florals (And Still Look Grown-Up)

We get it. Florals are popular. And no one here is complaining, however, there's a pretty particular way to wear them in order to maintain a grown-up appearance and stay away from girly girly territory. Because a floral pattern is typically classic, the secret is to accessorize with modern pieces. Try shoes with chunky heels in an unexpected hue. If the dress allows for it, opt for a thick belt to make your look more form-fitting. (Even if the dress is a wrap, as above, you can still belt if the material is thin enough.) Keep jewelry bold with a simple wooden cuff, and stuff summer makeup into a structured straw clutch.

Three Of Us Are Wearing Belts Today…Hence A Blog Post

One time I was doing some shopping after three or four cocktails (don't ask) and I bought a summer dress that I was sure made me look like a model. Until, of course, I tried it on again the next morning and realized I looked like I was wearing my shower curtain. Luckily, I was able to save the outfit by adding a trendy belt. This summer's belts are not as ridiculously wide as last's, and are typically made out of lightweight materials, fun patterns, and upbeat colors. 1. Guess's Stretch Raffia Belt with Leather Flower ($42) is the prettiest thing I've seen in a while. Put over a colorful day dress. 2. The Leather Woven Belt ($52) from Banana Republic is amazingly versatile; pair with jeans or add to a silk shirt for work. 3. I'm glad thin belts are back, like this Skinny Rope Belt ($29.50) from LOFT. Wear with a form-fitting work appropriate dress, or try belting a pair of white shorts.

What To Wear: At The Beach, If You Haven’t Lived At The Gym The Past Six Months

By now, if you haven't visited the inside of a gym to prepare for swimsuit season, then it's probably not going to happen. Therefore, camouflage is probably your best bet when visiting the beach. And even if you happen to be ready to flaunt the body, you can still take some pointers on how to cover up when walking through the hotel lobby. A retro one-piece is always flattering and always in style. Wear it with a gauzy loose-fitting cover-up in a complementary, summery color. One with front buttons is ideal in case you don't want to take it off while sitting in the sun; you can unbutton just enough depending on how much of a tan you desire (although you really should be sitting in the shade all day). Bring along a raffia belt if you decide to move the fun to the pool/beach/hotel bar, as it will give your loungy look some form. For accessories, accent with a simple wood cuff (metal will get hot in the sun), some slip-on metallic sandals, and a floppy straw hat. Carry everything in a colorful tote, and get excited to do absolutely nothing. For more options, be sure to take a look at our swimwear, summer hats, and waterproof makeup guides.
