We all do it—head straight for the nearest store after a frustrating day at work to trade paper or plastic for the rush of happiness that comes from a new shirt, only to wear it once and never again. Sure, shopping makes us feel good, but what if shopping could make us feel even better? Enlightened, even?

We all know that girls love their shoes, and we can all agree that when it comes to footwear, there is no one who does it quite like Stuart Weitzman.

We can all agree that the best way to be greeted—ever—is by a puppy licking your face. And that's just what happened on a recent boiling day in NYC, after we weaved our way through Tompkins Square Park to meet up with Eddy Segal. When we reached the Alphabet City artist's lair, her new pup, Bowie Bolan LaBeija (named after the iconic glam rockers and a Paris is Burning character) had no qualms about getting up close and personal. It's a trait he must have inherited from his expressive mama Eddy, the 24-year-old artist whose painting career is just taking off. More»

She and her husband, composer Paul Cantelon, are one of those couples you can't help but fall in love with, a creative duo that's too good to dream up. More»

It's not everyday that someone from the tween set manages to grab our attention here at Guest of a Guest, but when we saw 13-year-old Callie Reiff rubbing elbows with the likes of Vera Wang and Hailee Steinfeld at this year's CFDA Awards, our interests were instantly peaked. After doing some digging, we were undeniably hooked on the young fashionista making waves in the blogosphere. From ballet, to Djing, to modeling, this young blogger does it all, and she does so with a sense of personal style and confidence that we rarely see from even some of the most veteran members of the fashion industry. After our enlightening sit down with Callie, it's safe to say that she's destined to go on to do great things, and now we'll also be able to say that we knew her when. We're calling it now - you're looking at the next Cara Delevingne here, so click through to read the full interview with Calliestreetchic.com's Callie Reiff. More»

Now focused on her brand new app Beautified, Hannah still finds time to travel the world to DJ the most exclusive events, design capsule collections, and invest in restaurants like Acme. We had a chance to talk to Hannah during her cocktail party at Michael White's new restaurant The Butterfly, where we tried to figure out how she balances everything, and what's next for the savvy New Yorker.
