    To quote our own catchphrase, and the mega-stylist herself, Rachel Zoe is everything. Back in February, her first foray into design, a collection inspired by Parisian elegance and London street style, was die-worthy, and her follow-up for spring '12 was on-trend, heavy on prints and glamour.

    Now, for resort '12, RZ is bringing back the '60s and '70s in a major way — think Bianca Jagger in St. Barths (not coincidentally, it's Zoe's perfect vacay spot). Cocktail dresses, sharp blazers, flowy skirts, and flared jeans are on-point for your next jaunt just north of the equator, and, wallflowers beware, there's more color here than you'd find in a bag of Tropical Starburst. To get us in the mood for our next browse on Expedia, we got Rachel to spill the beans on the whole range, plus (and this a big plus) all the dish on her vacation staples, warm-weather styling tips, and, of course, what to pack — and just how much. Yes, we discussed those 11 bags she brought to Paris Fashion Week. Oh, and a jewelry collection? She lets us in on that, too.

    Click through to see the Rachel Zoe resort '12 collection, and exclusive pics and quotes from the designer. Bananas!

When was the last time you got an infection from read

Nope, The Model Isn't Wearing It Wrong

We do a lot of online shopping during the day (what — it's for work), so believe us when we say that we've seen it all. Frowning sweaters. "Ghetto" shoes. Whatever this thing is. If they sell it online, and you can wear it, we've clicked on it. However, this offering (pictured at right) on Pixie Market gave us a rare read


How To Decorate Your First Grown-Up Apartment

I've done my fair share of moving into and out of dorms, apartments, you-name-it. The process summed up in a word? Tiring. But, the prospect of each new place is always met with healthy amounts of excitement and anticipation, too. Thoughts of extravagant baking projects, Netflix binges on just-purchased couches, and read

The Broke Girl's Spring Shopping Guide

We heard your thoughts on The Broke Girl’s Guide To Dress Shopping. And, while we always appreciate smart, under-$100 buys and unexpected, mid-season sales — we get it. You want the real-deal, super-affordable finds. The secret, employee menu. The hidden-in-the-back-room merch. So, we found tons of gorgeous goods read
