Girls Night Out: 3 Hot Brands We Like This Weekend

First off: Don’t go to that sunken place.

Going to a backyard party, and you just can’t resist wearing heels? Solemates heel protectors are literally like having a superhero at your feet.


Invented by two sisters, these ingenious clear rubber stoppers fit discreetly over your stilettos, redistributing the weight over a larger surface area to prevent sinking.

The Solemates website features a quote from Oprah calling these protective heel stoppers “genius.” I don’t know if she used them to protect her fancy kicks at Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding or not, but what I do know is, if it works for Oprah, it will work for you.


Solemates come in three heel widths and four colors; $10 a pair.

Simple pretty dresses. Made in America. What more is there to say? I’m a fan.

Invitations to weddings and cookouts are sprouting up daily on my summer calendar. When the lookbook from Los Angeles-based fashion company Speechless came across my editor’s desk this morning, I found a ton of cheap and cheerful solutions for summer dressing.


Barbeque. Check. Wedding guest. Check. Check. Bridesmaid. Check. School reunion—yeah, that, too. What’s hot for summer? Monochromatic makeup, so think black, and for well under $100, you can arrive looking fly.


If you’ve got a flaw—flaunt it! That’s what the sisters behind the size-inclusive fashion brand Flaws of Couture have to say about dressing women.

With a company manifesto based on the irrefutable wisdom of none other than Miss Piggy herself, how could a curvy girl, or anybody else, for that matter, go wrong?


“Start out perfect and don’t change a thing. Always accentuate your best features by pointing at them. And conceal your flaws by sucker-punching anyone who has the audacity to mention them.”

—Miss Piggy

That said, check out the limited-edition swimwear “Fluffy” bikinis. If you want to make a splash, don’t be tardy for the party. Order yours before they sell out. Sizes large to 5X at $55.
