You've seen her work: the girls with big hair, big bags, and big sunglasses. Arms full of bangles, chunky platforms, skinny jeans effortlessly slung on the hips. Flowy, glamorous dresses accented with loads of accessories and a ton of bronzer: this is Rachel Zoe style.
I'm kind of in love with personalization. Whenever I spot a monogram, I'm instantly taken back to memories of elementary school--naps, milk and cookies, frilly dresses and labeled everything. Backpack, clothing, and blanket included. Not only was this trend adorable, it was also insanely helpful when you left your beach bag at the pool or your mittens on the bus.
I've heard of them all: Gilt Group, Hautelook, Rue La La, Ideeli... The exclusive, invite only "sample sale" sites that promise hot labels to a select group of shoppers at a reduced cost. Once you snag an invite, they seem like a win-win, right?
Lululemon, creator of the most amazing pants in the universe, is introducing a new line specifically for runners/people who get out of the yoga studio! Now we can reserve our one pair of Groove pants for Saturday nights (what? They make your butt look amazing) and hit the gym in something a little more refreshing Sunday morning.

If there's one thing I love most about summer, it's the freedom to flounce around every day in cute sundresses. They're my go-to look - breezy, easy to wear, and feminine. Naturally, when I saw this J.Crew Garden Dress I needed to have it.

I love Gossip Girl. Ever since I heard Kristin Bell's first "xoxo" back in 2007, I've been hooked. GG's got it all: drama, scandal, hot men, and adorable outfits. The thing about those outfits, however amazing they may be, is that they can be super expensive.

If you're a Sex And The City fan (and who isn't!?), you probably recognize this famous look from the opening credits of the show when SJP is flouncing around New York, splashes in a puddle, and sees herself on the side of a bus. Carrie's three-tiered cream-colored tutu dress was such an iconic fashion statement that it even made a cameo in the SATC movie.
When one of my girls suggested we take a Bikram yoga class together, I was super excited. Having each other to go with make things fun, and we'd have to pay for the classes, so we'd stay accountable. Sounds like exactly what I'm looking for. Or it did before I actually took a class. Now, I'm just torn.
I have a shocking confession to make: the dress before you is a maternity dress. And while I fully realize that this is a maternity dress and that's kind of weird, there is no denying that it is adorable. A super-fit, super-skinny blonde that I know showed up to work wearing this dress and I swear I thought she bought it at Nordstrom.
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.
I used to love ANTM. Ever since 2003, thanks to the CW, and the countless marathons on VH1 and MTV, I've been obsessed with all things Top Model. I remember Shandi's "Shanthrax" t-shirts, drunk Brittany, Nicole being a crybaby, crazy-ass Jade... and literally screaming at my TV when Whitney was crowned Top Model of cycle 10.
If any of you have watched Bridget's Sexiest Beaches on The Travel Channel, you have without a doubt seen some pretty crazy swimwear. Each episode, Bridget, (who generally looks perfect in everything, even though she says that her "stomach should be firmer") wears multiple swimsuits and cute cover-ups that make you wish it were summer.
So I know that it's almost summer (finally!) and we've all been parading around campus in our flip flops, but these Steven by Steve Madden boots are just too cute to pass up simply because of the changing climate.
'll be the first to admit that I own a ridiculous amount of swimwear for a girl who lives in a state where the temperature reaches 80° for a maximum of three months. I'm not even a swimmer. I just really like bikinis. For the past few summers, however, the monokini has been a fierce alternative to the triangle top and the Brazilian cut bottom.
Spring, especially in late April and early May, is one of those tricky seasons where you don't quite know what to wear besides your winter wardrobe minus your coat and plus flip flops. This is just the time when you need some cute new additions to brighten up your wardrobe, which is exactly what the Abstract Banded Back Top from Forever 21 will do!
