blog by Avery Hartmans  •

Dear Avery,

I’ve been invited to a black-tie event right after Christmas. I’ve never gone to something like this before and I have no idea what to wear. Do I have to wear a long gown? And how can I look festive? By the way, I’m in my late 20s.…

Dear Avery,
I’ve been really into denim vests lately. Is there a right way and a wrong way to wear them? I don’t want to look dated, overly trendy or basically just stupid in any way.

The short answer to your question is no, there…

Dear Avery,
I just found this maxi dress at what is usually a crazy expensive store….on sale for $25! It fits perfectly and is extremely flattering except for one little problem: it’s orange. I’ve never worn this color in my life and have…

These days, it’s hard to find a Buffalo girl who doesn’t own at least one pair of high-waisted denim shorts. The antidote to hipbone-baring jorts of summers past, high-rise denim has become a wardrobe staple for local girls. This is thanks, in part, to Julia…

A casual weekend outfit for Akil McLeod isn’t exactly the jeans-and-t-shirt ensemble most of us are used to. Instead, McLeod’s Sunday afternoon get-up is complete with wingtips, pocket square and gold jewelry.

Ask Avery: The long and short of it

Dear Avery,
I am petite on top but not quite as petite on the bottom. How do girls who don’t have chicken legs wear shorts? I can’t wear pants all spring but I don’t want to emphasize the wrong parts of my body.

I’m pretty…

Design it yourself with Pasteurized Tees: something for everyone

If you’ve ever been lucky enough to find the perfect t-shirt, you just knew when it was right. It’s soft and snug and has a design on the front that fools people into thinking you’re cooler than you really are. But for all us jeans-and-tee wearers, finding…

Dear Avery: I have a really great brown suede blazer that I’ve never worn. I’m always tempted to try to pair it with jeans or something so I can wear it to class, but I don’t know how to put it together and not have it look too business-y.…

Ask Avery: When is the thong wrong?

blog by Avery Hartmans  • 

{video_photo_caption}Settle down there, Specs -- we're talking about footwear.

Dear Avery: I firmly believe that thong-style flip-flops are never acceptable, especially at work. I know there are “nicer” varieties with bling, flowers, kitten heels, etc., but I say shower shoes should be left next to the bath tub or beach towels.…
