The Memorial area is in no way void of shopping meccas. Memorial City Mall, Town & Country, and City Centre provide plenty of retail therapy sessions to the locals. Each comes with trendy boutiques, great restaurants, and priceless people watching opportunities. But, there are a few spots that are, as one shop owner described, off the beaten path and I set out to find them.

Fashionably Late: Thoughts on Project Runway Season 13

A lot of fresh faces, a lot of stale design. Unlucky 13?
We're about halfway through the thirteenth season of Lifetime's Project Runway, and the formula seems to hold up, though it's certainly showing signs of wear and tear. Anchored by the overwhelming popularity of host Heidi Klum and host/mentor Tim Gunn, it's entirely probable that we'll be tuning in for as many seasons as Lifetime is willing to produce.

Designers now shop the Aldo accessories wall, and models head to the Mary Kay and Philip B. studios for makeup and hair--a far cry from the Lord & Taylors and L'Oreal Parises of the past. And after three seasons, Zac Posen still sounds like he's trying too damn hard to fill the Zippy One-Liner role Michael Kors perfected; Posen actually seems sweet, so it comes across a little forced.

Fashion on Demand: Five Fashion-y Things to Watch on HBO Right Now

LoveMarilyn.jpg
"Love, Marilyn" is yet another excuse to admire one of the greatest style icons of the 20th century.
Other than the insane Simpsons marathon on FXX, there is practically nothing to watch on television at the moment. (Sportsball doesn't count--it's always on.) Sure, we're muddling along with new episodes of Project Runway on Thursday nights, but beyond that we're talking about a wasteland of reality shows and syndicated re-runs.

For those of us who are #soblessed with HBO On Demand, the menu offers some relief. From Vogue to Marilyn Monroe to a little-watched HBO series, here are five fashion-centric gems to keep you occupied.

In Vogue (2012)

If someone offered you 90 minutes to pick the brain of some of the most famous names at Vogue, wouldn't you jump at the chance? Now you needn't worry about jumping, or the joint damage it could cause. Sit back, relax, and spend time with Hamish Bowles, Grace Coddington, and Anna Wintour--plus designers and A-list celebs like Nicole Kidman--via this 90-minute HBO documentary.

2014 Emmy Roundup: Lots of Dresses, Very Few Photos!

Seth is so handsome, even in screenshots.
Seth Meyer made us laugh, the E! Network red carpet crew made us cringe, and the winners made us yawn. Another Emmys award show is in the books.

Ryan Seacrest's absence was deeply felt. If you watched even a few minutes of last night's E! Live from the Red Carpet coverage, you were probably flummoxed as you watched Giuliana Rancic anchor the rest of the commentary crew: Ross Matthews (who always holds his own through sheer charm), Kelly Osborne, and Kristin Dos Santos. Osborne is improving with every show, though she tends to repeat lines from more seasoned co-hosts (see: George Kotsiopoulos). Dos Santos, on the other hand, was almost unwatchable. At one point she used the phrase, "safe, but unpredictable" to describe a dress. What does that mean?!

Now, let's talk about dresses.
