Not only do fashion brands have cute companies now, but they also have shareable content, and in my book that's pretty great.
With the internet came online shopping. Nowadays some stores have gotten so in to the online, that they are there exclusively. That's right, you can't buy it in stores because they don't have one! It's pretty revolutionary if you ask me, considering someday we will do everything on the internet...and have robots...and flying cars -- I digress.
Tweed might make you think of a stereotypical professor - the old man (who doesn't know how to use email) with elbow patches on the tweed blazer he wears every single day. Well throw this image out the window, because tweed is a gorgeous fabric that should be in every college girl's wardrobe.
Every morning when I get off the subway to go to school, I have to walk right past Forever 21. And it's torture. School been in session for three weeks now, and there has been this super hot navy lace dress (I think it’s a dress, but you never know with that store...) every time I walk by. Seeing as I don’t REALLY need another dress (remember how I bought 3 in the spring?) I’ve been trying really hard not to go in and buy it in all its gorgeous, lacy glory.
Leather is one of the biggest fabrics for fall 2010. It is also one of the easiest to embrace because EVERYTHING can be made in leather: bags, shoes, leggings, shorts, jackets, skirts...the list goes on. And I love it all. Leather is sexy. It's edgy. And it makes everything look cool.
If you haven’t caught on by now, it’s official: I’m smitten with all things military-inspired. Despite the short summer season,...
When moving into either a dorm or an off-campus apartment, your wardrobe will face two major challenges: 1. A major lack of funding (to add more to it). 2. A major lack of storage space. For these two reasons alone, maximizing what you do own becomes essential.
You've got your mattress cover, your mini-fridge, your XL twin sheets, and lots of garbage bags, but there is a whole category of dorm room essentials you are skipping out on. DORMWEAR. Because, if you're like me, no matter how hard you try and fight the stereotypical college student walking round in pajamas and sweats thang, there are times you will break down
One mom approved must-have for both fall and college is a chic fall jacket. The perfect fall jacket is neutral, goes with all your favorite clothes and fits just right. Not to mention, it "keeps you warm on those walks to class. You don't want to catch a cold!" (Thanks, ma.)
Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.
What's the one thing you should have in your closet before moving to school? It's definitely not a pair of sweats or an oversized tee. But, if you do it right, this very special wardrobe essential can feel just as good.
If you've grown a bit sea sick from all the nautical-inspired clothes you've been sporting this summer, why not return to dry land and go more utilitarian with the military-inspired pieces dominating stores? These pieces have a harder look, with cargo pockets, neutral colors and grommet detailing.
One of my favorite Spring 2010 fashion shows this year was D&G with their western wear inspired collection. Being from Calgary, Alberta, home to the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth," I see a lot of western wear during the 10 days of the Calgary Stampede. And most of it is tacky, ugly and ill fitting.
A few weeks ago Sarah Jessica Parker inspired Fashion Porn. This week, it's inspired by someone completely different. While doing my usual online browsing, I discovered Forever 21's "Inspired by La Roux" page. I've been drooling over pictures of Elly Jackson of La Roux's style.
As the temperature starts to rise, it's time to bare those legs, soak up a little vitamin D (just make sure to wear sunscreen!), and enjoy the lovely weather. Sure, you could wear shorts, but then you gotta deal with that whole "thighs rub together and shorts ride up" situation. Plus, skirts are way more fun, and a cuter, flirtier way to show off those gams.
My inspiration for Fashion Porn can come from anywhere. (OK, anywhere except actual porn. Have you seen what those people wear?!) Last week, for example, it came from kicking off my third summer in a row by donning a cowboy hat for a week. And this week I'm feeling inspired by none other than Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker and that gorgeous yellow Valentino dress she wore for the Sex And The City 2 premiere.
Whoever said diamonds are a girl's best friend, obviously never tried to walk in 4-inch heels - if they had, they'd know that a woman's real best friend is a hot pair of wedges.
Chances are you're seeing the light at the end of the cold month tunnel and feeling ready to bare those legs again. While dresses and skirts are the obvious way to show some leg, their counterparts, rompers and shorts, are another equally adorable option. A much more practical option, I might add, as they won't blow up when a lovely spring breeze blows through.
With the end (fingers crossed) of the rain and the new May flowers that follow, what better way to celebrate it finally feeling like spring than with a dress! This year, there are so many adorable spring dresses to choose from that's it's hard to pick! (I just bought three...I have a problem.)
Pastels reminiscent of the colors of everyone's favorite chocolate Easter treat have made their way onto store shelves and I am excited! Pale blues, pinks, yellows, greens, etc. have a way of lifting the spirits, like a warm spring breeze or the smell of flowers on your way to class.
It's that time of year again - the time to start hunting for summer jobs or internships (if you haven't already), or start hunting for job or internship wardrobes (if you've already secured the gig). If you're working in an office or a professional environment chances are you're going to need to pick up a few pieces. Contrary to what some people think, Uggs and flip flops are not acceptable at most office jobs.
There really is a pattern and a print for everyone. The only problem is, with so many options this season, how do you choose? Don't! Stock up on a wide variety of patterns and prints for a bright and fun spring/summer wardrobe.
I love rain boots a little more than anyone my age probably should. However, I feel this love is justified - on top of being SUPER adorable, wellies also keep your feet dry, making them practical as well. Over the last few years, retailers have rolled out all sorts of fun, bright-colored, patterned boots for you to go dancing in the rain.
I'm going to be a little blunt - I personally think that dressing up for holidays is a little lame. There are, however, 2 exceptions 1. Halloween (duhhh) 2. St. Patrick's Day.
After a long, cold, gray winter, I think it's safe to say that everyone is looking forward to spring. And by spring, I mean SPRING BREAK, baby. And while we all need a little warm breeze in our lives, what I'm looking forward to most is ditching the chunky sweaters and embracing spring clothes!
The countdown to spring continues. Only three (fingers crossed) more weeks to go! As my school's spring break was last week, I am currently enviously admiring the tans of my classmates lucky enough to flee warmer weather. With most American schools still weeks away from break, now is the time to start thinking about what to wear.
Until the sun is shining and the temperature rises enough to expose the tops of my feet, I'm left admiring the plethora of flats retailers have to offer this year. With most shops carrying inexpensive options, it's easy to stock up on styles that fit with (and add some style to) all your favorite outfits. Flats are one of those items that can be worn to subtly incorporate a season's hottest trends.
The '90s have made a comeback. No, MC Hammer won't be kicking off an international tour any time soon, but chambray is sweeping the globe.
Sexy pumps: every girl's necessity for a fabulous night out. Yes, they will probably definitely kill your feet and you'll be walking back from the party in flip flops (or barefoot!), but they're hard to resist because they look so.frickin.good. Sick of typical stilettos but want to add some height? Look no further than the Sarkia Pump by Calvin Klein.
Unless it's already your style, you're probably not going to be rocking full animal print outfits to your 9 a.m. psychology lecture or feathered and beaded stilettos to this weekend's frat party. However, adding a few tribal accents to your look could be just the update your style needs this year.
Cutouts are a sexy trend seen on both the spring and fall 2009 runways, so if you feel comfortable showing...
With spring fast approaching (it’s mid-March already?), the floral trend is once again in full swing. Although most people are...
St. Patty’s Day is just around the corner, people! What does that mean? Well, green teeth, for one. But it...
While I love finding the perfect gifts for people and seeing their faces as they open them, I must admit,...
