How Do You Respond to Compliments?

An Open Letter To My Hair

Please: just work with me. I am trying to help you; I am on your side! I guess I should start with an apology, or two. I'm sorry I burn you, cut you and tie you up. I'm sorry I color you, curl you, straighten you and harass you in countless other ways. If it's any consolation I do it out of love.

Budget Stylista: Red

Red has it's heyday during the holiday season (and Valentine's Day!), but that doesn't mean you can't look fabulous in this feisty color any time of year.

We all know that the perfect pair of pants is a must-have. A stylista's closet is simply incomplete without them -- bootylicious jeans, forgiving slacks, hold-in-your-chub leggings...all essential to seamlessly completing any look. But from time to time we at CC see some "oh-god-why" looks. And often those looks are made that much more atrocious due to a perfectly horrible pair of pants.

We all love shoes. From heels to slippers (I know how much you all love UGGs), we can all agree that shoes are the key ingredient to a perfectly chic outfit or the perfect pick me up on a bad day (hello retail therapy).
