The LoveShackFancy Edie dress vs. a Gap dupe

LoveShackFancy is a brand that I tend to shop very sparingly—it's ultra-feminine, in a way that often reads young to me (and I'm not alone)—but they do a boho summer dress like no one else, and when they get it right, they're very very good. Case in point: I still wear this dress, which I featured back in 2018, all the time. That said, their dresses are on the pricey side (usually $300–$400). So when I heard talk of a good dupe from Gap, my ears perked up—given Gap's propensity for sales, chances were I could get one for a song (spoiler alert: I did). So I decided, in the name of journalism, to put it head-to-head with its reported inspiration, the Edie dress. Here's how they compare. 

10 ways to wear a chambray shirt

Conventional wisdom—and a gazillion fashion editors—will tell you a classic white button-front shirt is a wardrobe essential. I agree to an extent; like many essentials, however, it can feel a little...boring. White shirts also tend to be problematic because they're hard to keep clean and can sometimes be see-through. Which is why I prefer a chambray shirt. It has a little more personality than plain white, but it's just as versatile. It leans a little more casual, but we're in a more relaxed day and age, so I think that's quite appropriate. I've featured my chambray shirt many times here over the years, so I thought it was time to put all my best outfit ideas together. Here are my favorite ways to style a chambray button-up shirt. 

The best Mother's Day gifts for 2024

For some reason, I didn't do a Mother's Day gift guide last year, but since my holiday gift guide was so popular, I decided to bring it back. I don't happen to be a mother, but I do have one and I'm a woman, so that at least counts for something. These are all gifts I think many women would love to receive, although of course every woman is different (and for the record, my mom wants a reading lamp this year!). Anyway, Mother's Day is less than two weeks away, so let's get to it!
