Celebrating Cinco de Mayo and the Derby this weekend? Here, tips and tricks on how to throw a “Cinco de Derby” party.

Iris Apfel. Is there anyone cooler? This 93-year-old (that’s right: 93!) icon is known for her daring and attention-grabbing looks. She understands what true style really is: “something that expresses who you are in your own way.” We could all use a dose of life lessons from Ms. Apfel.

If you’re a little wary when it comes to decorating with color, let these 12 neon rooms serve as inspiration.

Here’s a chocolate bar you can judge by its wrapper: Compartes has teamed up with designer Kelly Wearstler to make what is not only delicious chocolate bars, but the prettiest, too. (I’ve been giving them as gifts to my chocoholic friends.)

I just scored these amazing striped sandals on sale at Neiman Marcus First Call.
