Perfectly Bazaar 
We haven’t seen a cover this good in a long, long time. The poppy graphics and gorgeous colors seen on this vintage issue of Harper’s Bazaar seem pretty ahead of their time for 1940. If you want to dig around, eBay has heaps of inspiration. And remember, if you find something good, scan that puppy and upload to Tumblr. We’ll all benefit from your research.

All in the Lips
In need of a summer shade that isn’t as serious and dramatic as a deep red but still packs a punch? This orangey coral totally hits the spot. Now, of course this photo is decades old and we can’t match it exactly, but the closest thing we could find was NARS Heat Wave semi-matte lipstick, which provides “full-bodied, velvety color.” And if you’re looking for that fresh, dewy look, apply a coat of clear gloss. Voila! What’s old is new again.

MAC for Thom Browne
Okay, so you might not go for the shape of the lips Thom Browne chose for his models this season, but you should certainly go for the color. MAC went with Ruby Woo lipstick, dusted over with Red Pigment to create a hyper-saturated finish. Click through the above links to see what you can score on eBay.

Red Red Red
I’m a firm believer that you can never own too many red lipsticks. Lately, we’re obssesed with MAC’s “Ronnie Red”, named after bad girl Veronica from Archie Comics. eBay has a plethora of Ronnie Reds available at great prices. Other options include Elizabeth Arden’s or Chanel’s rouge sticks. Make those lips count!

6 Things Every Girl Should Have in Her Closet: Kate Schelter
By Jauretsi
Kate Schelter is a curious lady with her hands in many pots. In her younger years, Kate studied graphic art and adored fashion, so she decided to open her own firm, Kate Schelter LLC, specializing in both passions — creative direction and fashion styling. She’s styled campaigns for Lulu Frost, Hollywould, and Wren and styled for names ranging from the Olsen twins to Margherita Missoni. We asked the image consultant to share her top six essentials for any woman’s wardrobe.  
(1) Underpinnings: Hanky Panky, Woldford stockings, Ten Undies. Once you know your size, you can’t mess it up on eBay
(2) Heels: Gianvitto Rossi Black 4” stilleto. Cheap shoes scream “I ruined your look”, great ones complete it
[MORE]
(3) Coats: Comme des Garcons camel trench, Yves Saint Laurent faux leopard print coat
(4) Fabulous Dress: Something wonderful, colorful, memorable. For example, Vintage YSL, Ungaro, Oscar de la Renta
(5) Accessories: Beaver felt trilby (Lock and Co), antique jewelry (gifted by someone very special)
(6) Red Lipstick (Chanel): eBay is a dream for finding your favorite discontinued colors and products

Luck Be a Lady
By Jenny Bahn 
No matter how boyish and low-maintenance I like to think I am, sometimes it’s nice to dress like a proper lady. Lipstick, knee-length dresses, high heels, the works. Peplum skirts and tops are a flirty favorite of mine. A full skirt paired with a polite button-up is another way to dip your toes into uncharted girl territory. The trick is to never make it look too precious. If you’re feeling like a cupcake, throw on a harder shoe, like Valentino’s studded cheetah numbers or Acne’s (very comfortable, I might add) wedge sandals.
