With gadgets and gizmos aplenty, this American catalog would give Ariel a run for her money.

You'll have to travel the globe to snag this new collection of luxury high heels from queen of whimsy Charlotte Olympia.

A trip to Southeast Asia inspired a designer to turn deadly materials into meaningful, modern heirlooms.

There’s something about being in an airport that makes me feel both overdressed and underdressed at the same time. On the one hand, you see the breed of towering, beautiful women strutting by in their six-inch Laboutin heels, impossibly slim trousers and more jewelry than I own (how they make it through metal-sensitive security checkpoints, I’ll never know). The opposite side of the spectrum consists of those who threw on sweatpants, a baggy T-shirt and flip-flops (even if it’s snowing out)—an outfit I might clean my house in. What globe-trotting women choose to wear showcases their values when it comes to clothing—unbeatable comfort, flawless style or something else entirely—which is why I try combine a mix of chic, layered garments with comfortable shoes.

My favorite way to travel is by train. Luckily Amtrak, which departs from New York City’s accessible transportation hub Penn Station, has stations in all sorts of cities I want to visit.
