    Lace-up boot options for women

    I am hoping it's OK to crash into the guy's side. I am stumped in my search for lace-up boots, 20s, 30s style. I have an original pair that I'm loathe to wear out. The What Price Glory ones look nice, but I am not sure they make them small enough for women. I've also seen the Frye's boots, nice...

    More on Re-mix shoes

    One of the benefits of living in LA is that I can go to Re-mix. I hadn't been in there in years, but wanted to get some new shoes as every pair of mine are falling apart. I was very surprised to find that on a couple of styles, the leather seems pretty thin. In particular, Greta, and Brockley...

    Speaking of hair, hotroller recommendations?

    I've got a small toddler, not much time to fiddle around, so some days my hair barely gets brushed. I'm wondering if I should invest in some hotrollers, not least because I hate sitting in sponge rollers all day long when we do go out for that rare event, or if I just want to look decent...
