Dream Downtown Achieves New Levels of Fab with Celeb Hairstylist Salon, IGK HAIR

It is no secret that the Meatpacking District is the #1 nightlife and party destination in the city. Boasting the hottest clubs, chicest hotels, and swankiest restaurants, one knows that if they want to be in the epicenter of it all, they need to head west of 9th avenue and just below 20th street. And now, it’s time to invite your hair to the party.

Situated in the sleek DREAM Downtown hotel, the newly opened IGK Hair is already turning a few heads. What first began as a bespoke Miami hub has now made its way over to tame the tresses of a diverse Big Apple clientele -- from chic, corporate customers, to cool, club kids. There’s even talk of a forthcoming Los Angeles outpost on the horizon.

Fur Your Consideration: #MakeFurHistory

According to meteorological predictions, the polar vortex is destined to strike once again this winter, making the desire necessity to keep warm more pronounced than ever. While technological advances in the fashion world have produced efficient garments designed to trap heat (UNIQLO’s popular Heattech is one noteworthy example), most individuals continue to gravitate towards more traditional materials like fur despite their widely advertised ecological detriment. With New Year’s around the corner, LUSH Cosmetics is launching a new campaign to inspire customers to make some early resolutions.

How To Dress For Thanksgiving Based on Your Favorite Feast Day Entrée

While every family does their feast a little differently, traditional Thanksgiving staples are pretty run-of-the-mill. With so many tasty ingredients, it’s hard to choose the one to top our favorites list, but let’s face it, we all have “that one dish” from which we can’t help but take seconds (even if when we’re bursting at the seams).

Given that people often say that you can tell a lot about a person by the way they eat, we’ve compiled a specially-themed Thanksgiving style guide catered to your taste preferences – literally. Obviously, we know that a “cranberry sauce coveteur” would never be caught dead in a “mashed potato sucker’s” sweater!

Shopping The Oversized Scarf Trend

Oversized scarves are totally having a moment right now. Chic and cozy, scarves in the fall are the equivalent to shorts in the summer. When the temperature drastically changes they come out of the closet and are pretty much worn every day after that. When it comes to scarf season, the bigger the better, which is why this blanket scarf is perfect to try this season. It’s perfect to keep you worn but also has become super stylish and can be worn as a pancho/throw over or simple big layers around your neck. Check out these stylish picks we have rounded up for you to try this season.
