It's with mixed emotions that I write this post. I'm sad to be leaving the About family after covering the topic of 15-Minute Fashion since 2009! I've enjoyed sharing organization strategies and covering trends with an eye towards the busy fashionista.
But don't worry, just because I'm leaving About, doesn't mean I'm leaving you. I'll still be easy to find--I will be focusing more on my own personal lifestyle blog, TheJetSetGirls.com. For those of you in New York, look for me at industry events, like the Style Coalition Fashion 2.0 Awards where I was a presenter this year (shown right). And you can always find me on Twitter or Pinterest. I look forward to catching up with you there!

If you're the type who wants your nail polish to match your dress exactly—or maybe it's a pair of shoes or a handbag you're trying to highlight—you'll want to download the new China Glaze iPhone app stat. Among the app's cool features is "Match a Color", where you can upload a photo (of said, dress, shoes, handbag or anything, really) and the app will suggest the colors that are the best match. How cool is that?
You can also try on different nail polish shades, watch How to Videos and see the brand's hottest products. Download the China Glaze app for free on iTunes.

So the impossible has happened. No, I didn't spot a unicorn (though that would be seriously cool!), but nearly equally impressive, I did find a foundation drugstore that I like. I should say it's more than like--it has me ready to trade in all my pricey formulas, because, it is just that good. What is the name of this miraculous product? Check out my full review here.

One fashion issue you probably don't think much about is counterfitting. That doesn't mean it's not a major issue for designers everywhere. From knockoff bags to having copies patterned, it is an issue that nearly universally plagues the industry.
To help raise awareness and raise funds for the Council of Fashion Designers of America, 60 designers from Diane von Furstenberg to Judith Leiber to Carolina Herrara, have designed one-of-a-kind bags along the theme of "You Can't Fake Fashion" that areá being auctioned of on eBay now through March 25.
If you want to get involved, but don't have hundreds to part with, the "You Can't Fake Fashion" tote, shown top, is a reasonable $50. Happy bidding!
