New RG Facebook Page
Morning! Awhile back, I made the mistake of opening up a zillion Facebook pages spread out all over the place, and it got completely confusing and impossible to maintain. So: I’ve decided to consolidate them into just one. This one.Â I’m working on making it prettier and more streamlined, so if you have a moment pop by to say hi! Original Article
Like Brandon Walsh's Girlfriend
Remember how I told you I met Jason Priestley once? And sort of lost my mind? Well, on Sunday I dressed up like his girlfriend from the 90210 days. (The first one, kids. It was television perfection.) I mean…kinda, right? I feel like this is the sort of outfit that would be worn by the new girl who just started working as a photographer at the school paper, and who makes Andrea...
How-To: Wear Hats! (Because You Should)
Q. Hi, Jordan! I love hats. I would wear a hat every day if I could, but I have a problem: I can’t figure out how to wear them. Any advice? - Steph A. Oh, I used to be so not into hats. I didn’t think they looked good on me, and besides, every time I wore one I was just so aware of the thing, and felt like everyone else was, too. “Oh, that girl? You mean the one IN THE...

What To Wear: Country Cabin Wedding
Q. Hi Jordan, I have decided to get married this spring in the yard of a beautiful country cabin. Picture mason jars…pictures clothes-pinned to twine…acoustic guitars…Chucks for the men. So I don’t know what to do for a dress. Also, I have practically no money to spend…I’m talking $200 max. Any ideas or inspiration would be wonderful! Lindsay Q. That...
At War With My Heels
Q. Hi Jordan, As of late, I am at war with my Louboutins. Literally, within 10 minutes of wearing them, my ankles feel as if they will give out at any second. Help! Have you had this issue? Is it the end of heels? Any tips? Love your blog! Michelle A. Hmm…weakness not so much, but heel trouble generally, yes, and it makes me feel old. I’m not sure what happened: it used to be...
On Friday evening, handbag designer Alexandra Satine (you’ve seen her Brickel and Rio Limon styles here before) stopped by to show me her favorite picks from her Summer and Fall collections. The best thing about her bags: with most styles, part of the bag can be removed and carried as a separate clutch or small purse, making the piece a two-for-one investment. On Saturday, it snowed. ...
DIY Vintage Kitchen Chairs
Q. Hi Jordan! My boyfriend and I moved in together in August and we are almost all set up…but one of the biggest hiccups so far has been finding kitchen chairs that we like. We want something bright (a turquoise distressed wooden chair would be awesome), and something with a vintage feel to it, but we don’t want to spend crazy amounts of money on them because, after all, they are...
2-Minute Beauty: Simple TopKnot (With A Twist)
When I posted the shots from our trip up the Hudson a couple of weeks ago, a reader commented below the post asking me if I wouldn’t mind doing a tutorial on that hairdo. And what I said was nope, of course I wouldn’t mind…but it’s really just a loosened-up topknot with a couple of simple twists that make it a little more interesting than the kind of thing you’d...
Amsale Bridal Event
Last night I got the chance to talk wedding gowns and wardrobe malfunctions with bridal designerÂ Amsale. Her number-one piece of advice (which I agree with): your wedding day is not the day to suddenly become a trendball (although I’m not sure that she used preciselyÂ that word). Think timeless, and to get started on your search consider what you wear and what you look like on a daily...
Joyus Shoot / 4 Looks
Look 1: H&M tunic, Nine West Camelot boots. I spent yesterday in Dumbo, shooting a segment for Joyus.com highlighting my favorite pieces from one of my favorite jewelry brands, Chloe and Isabel (you’ve seen me wearing their stuff all over the place here). What we wanted to show was how statement pieces can transform wardrobe staples into for-real outfits, so I (mostly) chose...
Sloppy Hairtie Solution / Bloom Black Ties
If you check out my personal style posts, you’ll notice a little something that pops up over and over (and over), and that something is this: Reading my site is like playing Ugly Old Elastic Where’s Waldo. I’ve gotten better at remembering to take my hairtie off my wrist mostly because at this point I’ve been reminded by so many photographers and stylists that a black...
Crossbody Bags Under $250 (And Many More Bags,...
Q. Hey Jordan! I have had the same two Longchamps bags since 2007, and I’m ready for something new! I can’t keep my eyes off of the oversized, slightly slouchy leather cross-body bags. I don’t really know where to start looking for them, though. Any ideas? Thanks! Susannah A. I think this is an item that it’s OK to spend a little more money on - though there’s no...
Next-Level Grilled Cheese & Bacon

How-To: Wear Boyfriend Jeans
I’ve never really been on the boyfriend jeans train, but I tried on a pair at Paige Denim Sunday afternoon and kinda fell in love. They’re a little tricky to wear, though; pair ‘em with the wrong things, and you have a major schlump situation. (Above, I’m wearing Paige jeans with a StyleMint tee, a Cosmic Thread necklace, and Aldo wedges.) The key when wearing a...
Non-Alcoholic Punch / Excellent Champagne Topper
MORGAN’S SIGNATURE “I’M PREGGERS” DRINK* Raspberry tea Frozen orange juice Splash of lemonade Mint leaves Sliced lime (Can be used to top off champagne as a fun twist on a mimosa for the non-pregnant.) *Can’t take credit for this one; it was Melissa’s creation and it was delicious. Original Article
Weekend Snapshots (& A Little Baby Shower...
I spent Friday night - all of it - trying to get my gel manicure off. Morgan told me that at the salon they just soak cotton balls in acetone and then wrap them in tin foil for 20 minutes before scraping off whatever’s left with an orange stick…so I figured, hey, I can do that myself and save the money, right? As it turned out it was a little problematic, being as once one hand is...
