TO THe MAx

On the 30th of July I’m off to the Middle East, Qatar to be exact, to work on the TriBeCa Film Festival in Doha‘s website. According to my iPhone widget, the weather there is around 110 degrees and it’s getting hotter by the day. Which means that I’m going to have to start investing in a serious selection of maxi dresses (being that it’s a Muslim country, shorts and tanks tops aren’t exactly going to fly). Since there are heat waves going on in New York and L.A. right now I figure everyone could benefit from my extensive online dress shopping. Stay cool.

Crop tops? Really? Yes, my friends, it’s true. They are back, and better than ever. The best ones are boxy, a little bit longer in the back, and hit just above the waistline. Layer over a long tank if your abs aren’t quite ready for summer, or combine them with a pair of comfy jeans for a cute, and tad revealing look. Personally, I wore my Vena Cava version with black skinny jeans to an outdoor benefit because I wasn’t quite ready to bare my tanless legs.
