Paging Captain Kirk! Innovation Meets Style With Tommy Hilfiger’s Solar Panel Jacket

Let’s talk innovation for a moment. It’s common to hear the word thrown around when it comes to technology. When it comes to fashion, that’s an entirely different story. But for the folks over at Tommy Hilfiger, that story is one to be read aloud. The newest novelty from the designer, whose aesthetic mainly centers around classic American chic, appears to be something right out of a Star Trek episode. Now, I first laid eyes on this magnificent invention while I was gazing upon this months’ issue of Marie Claire. When I figure out what the product actually was, it nearly blew my mind. This Solar Panel jacket from Tommy Hilfiger features a removable solar pack that charges a battery to keep your mobile devices working while on the go. If gets better. While in direct sunlight, the battery is fully capable of charging up to two devices at a time. Now, the jacket will cost you up to $599, not including taxes. But I mean talk about an investment, this jacket pretty much does it all. Just …

My All-Time Favorite Halloween Costumes

Halloween happens to be my favorite time of year. C’mon, an entire day revolving around horror movies and candy? What’s not to love? But the problem is, I tend to wait last minute to do almost everything which includes picking out a Halloween costume. This leaves me with a limited selection of costumes choices to choose from, causing me to go as something idiotic. But if you’re anything like me, and tend to wait last minute to pick out a costume; fret no more. Alas, there’s a solution that slight predicament. Believe or not, you can actually create a totally chic Halloween costume with items you already have in your closet. Above are three examples of costumes I’ve worn in the past. My all-time favorite is going as a flapper. I’m totally obsessed with the 20’s, (hence, the title for my blog), and going as a flapper is my most favorite disguise. The first rule to pulling off this look is the dress. Everyone always chooses a dress with fringe detailing but I like to …

Taylor Swift Lands Her 1st British Vogue Cover!

It’s hard not to be interested in celebrities. After all, their lives are so utterly fascinating. Whether they’re purchasing some ultra extravagant penthouse on the Upper East Side, or dancing on bar tables at the hottest clubs;  it’s never a dull moment in the life of a celebrity. That much is the same for Ms. Taylor Swift, the country songstress turned pop star. It seems every magazine you open, there’s the blonde beauty, strutting the streets of New York as if it’s her very own catwalk. To be quite honest, I’m totally obsessed with Swift. I find her to be very interesting. So, you can understand my excitement when I glimpsed at the October issue of British Vogue, and saw the “Shake it Off” singer, looking ever so chic. In the issue, Taylor discusses her relationships, music, and living in New York, but it’s her ensembles I was more drawn to. On the cover, Swift rocks a pastel pink Miu Miu coat, paired with a blue, cable knit tank. Her hair is slicked back to …
