Fashion Week Makeover: Dress Like Your Pad
I love the sunny, Palm-Springs vibe of Trina Turk clothes but it's far from reflected in my home. My apartment is more granny-drab than '60s-chic. So I was excited to hear that ole Trina has her own line of home accessories. There's nothing like a throw pillow to liven things up.
