Ask Avery: How can I avoid looking like a “Pretty Woman?”

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

Julia Roberts: making prostitution look safe and fun since 1991!

Dear Avery: How can I make my over-the-knee boots look less “Pretty Woman” and more class- or work-appropriate? And how do I avoid buying Uggs and find a practical yet fashionable boot?

The opportunity to wear boots is perhaps the best thing about the temperature dropping. Obviously, rain boots are a practical, comfortable and usually fashionable choice throughout the fall.…

Molly Hoeltke finds Buffalo style at Urban Threads.

With the varying degrees of fall in Buffalo, we never know what to expect from the weather. That being said, layering isn’t only a fashion decision—it’s a necessity.

Layering was the intention for this week’s shopping trip—finding fabrics and colors that are easily layered and warm up both our skin and our skin tones. Here’s my photo diary of both men’s and women’s…

Access + Excess: Stumbling into a superstar

blog by Sophia Smith  •   •  

Mick Jagger slept here.  And presumably did other stuff, too.

Just as many guys from Western New York preparing to take those final steps on the road to marriage make the bachelor party road trip to Las Vegas, plenty of local ladies enjoyed their final weekend of freedom under the bright lights of the Big Apple.  When I lived in New York after college, it seemed like everyone from home came to the city for a bachelorette weekend before tying…

Ask Avery: When is the thong wrong?

blog by Avery Hartmans  •   •  

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. Am I being a shoe snoot?

When we experience a heat wave—and in Buffalo, that can mean the day in February when it hits 40…

Ask Avery: The trouble with turtlenecks; jerseys out of bounds?

blog by BuffaloDotCom  •   •  

Avery is back!  She's the one on the left.

Dear Avery: What’s cooler for dudes – the half-zip sweaters or the full zip ones?  I always feel awkward in full zip sweaters, but overly preppy in half zip.  AND WHAT ABOUT TURTLENECKS?!

When it comes to sweaters, my vote is for the half-zip. Yes, it’s a little preppy. But when paired with a nice pair of jeans and a simple t-shirt, it looks relaxed yet stylish. For work,…
