So maybe our generation is a little bit compliment-crazy (don’t forget to comment about how irreverent and humorous my writing is at the end of this post), but accepting a compliment is always just a tad bit awkward. Why can’t we just say thank you?
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.
From libraries to public transportation, everyone is always on his or her phone and they’re always being very rude about it. As a misanthrope I find everything about society to be extremely irritating but overheard phone conversations really grinds my gears. Who’s with me? All of you? Ok!
Flares are a big trend this fall/winter, which is surprising as they've typically been a spring hit. This denim cut can add length to any height and looks good on any body type. Now that skinny jeans have become so common -- they are a staple in almost everyone’s wardrobe -- Stylistas are seeking a less skintight alternative.

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.

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. Stand out in a crowded bar in a lust-red bodycon dress, or look sophisticated in a berry-red blouse for your in-class presentation. Red is perfect for a first date or just to spice up your look for everything from work to class to Saturday night

Enter celebrity jewelry lines by Nicole Richie, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Klum, Molly Sims and Kate Bosworth. These ladies have a great eye for jewels. From statement pieces to the perfect pair of hoops, these celebs utilize their personal style to create some truly stylish pieces.
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.
Polka dots had a big come back this season. Modern takes on polka-dots have been shown all over the runway by designers who were inspired by the vintage print. Polka dots manage to make a dress look chic without being too busy. They can also make a classic purse look up-to-season. This trend ranges from bold to understated, and is far from just black and white.
YSL once said that fashions fade, but style is eternal. He really hit the nail on the head with that one. Just because a print, cut, or pattern is trendy does not, I repeat does not, make it stylish. Or for that matter flattering. Below are 10 trends we've seen this year that need to go back to whatever closet they came from.
Unless you’ve fallen off the face of the earth (and the internet) for the past three months, you know all...
Aztec prints are all over every celebrity fashionista and runway model this season. From geometric inspired to floral-esq, the Aztec print is constantly revamped and always fabulous. But with this chic print comes some rules: don't overload, do try in bright colors, and do wear into spring!
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). They can say a lot but who you are, what you like and what you're interested in. Especially sneakers. Just because they're basic footwear, doesn't mean they don't make a bold statement.
