Nevertheless, our recent warm spell has me implementing a tried-and-true warm weather trick: When my legs are hairy in the extreme and I don't have time to shave, I haul out a maxi dress or skirt. Less itchy than pants yet effectively conceals my gams. This marvelously comfortable jersey...

These Tessa boots got neglected all winter, and I don't know why. They're just as comfy as they are cute. I seem to pack neutrals only when I go visit my parents, and this weekend was no exception. I knew we'd be in the car a lot, and wanted to be unencumbered and comfy, so this drapey...

Kane's Darkly Beautiful Fall – Christopher Kane seemed to be in a dark mood for his fall 2012 collection presented on Monday during London Fashion Week. Opening with pinstripe dresses in black and white, it set the tone for a gloomy color palette of plum, burgundy, royal blue and black. A...

For fall, Christopher Kane took a dip in the dark side while ultimately staying true to his sunny disposition. His experiments with black nylon made for some intimidating, frightening looks that bordered on trash-bag chic, especially given the models' decidedly matted hair. Yet the clothes'...

Chicago Fave Karen Kane Debuts New California-Cool Pieces View Fullscreen She may hail from the West Coast, but designer Karen Kane reigns supreme in the Windy City. We love her whimsical yet put-together look, and it seems the rest of the city does as well (we're her largest market!)....

Karen Kane's denim manages to be stretchy and comfortable, but also close-fitting enough to slide into boots unbunched. Another common complaint about jeans! And this one applies to all styles: Seems like most brands that add stretch to their blends create fabrics that fit great right out...

These photos look like they were taken in fall, don't they? I assure you they are current. That tree behind my head goes all red-orange before it settles into its dark purple state. (It's a Crimson King maple, for you plant lovers.) This dress is a great length and – like many Karen Kane...
