8 Under $20: Texture

Budget Stylista: 3 Layered Looks

Come winter, I seem to gain about 10 pounds. I'm never sure if this is actual holiday weight, or whether it's just the appearance of bulky layers. Living in Minnesota for the year I'm getting used to the cold, but not what I look like in the mirror.

8 Under $20: Warm and Fuzzy

Wardrobe Wish List: Shopbop Custom Denim Studded Skinny Jean

Some of us are extremely frugal - we buy new clothes once a year and never let window displays tempt us into spending our food allowance on a new pair of heels.

Ask StyleBakery: What’s The Best Way To Wear Booties?

Not only are ankle boots a huge trend, but they're also extremely versatile. You can wear them with jeans or leggings or in place of a pump with dresses and skirts. Since booties range from super low (sometimes called shooties) to heights that are well above your ankle bone, how you wear your boots depends on the style of boot.

If you live in a colder climate like me, each October you yank your tanks and dresses from your closet (shed a few tears) and swap 'em out for the sweaters and boots stuffed under your bed.
