Dorm decor and more
Everyone loves a good handbag!
Anthropologie, the land of beaded cardigans and vaguely mod-dresses you've promised yourself you'll buy the day you land your first real grown-up job.
In between mega data entry today, I found myself browsing the beautiful pages of Anthropologie's website. It is truly the most gorgeous and visually-pleasing store I've ever been in. Anthropologie pays careful attention to details that really make a difference in one's shopping experience. Not only that, they also carry a wonderful selection of clothing and accessories, including this week's feature, the Bold Strokes Satchel!
I'm going to be honest with you -- my first thought after watching that Shopaholic film was 'so this means if I got a credit card, I could have amazing clothes like that too?' Definitely not the point, as every person I shared my revelation with was quick to point out. But what's a shopaholic on a limited budget to do? Figure out how to do it on the cheap!
Today is Good Friday, which for many Christians means the a day to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. But that doesn't mean the holiday is only for practicing Christians. Nope. Whether you're celebrating the holiday for religious reasons or not, it's a great reminder to turn your Good Friday into a GREAT FRIDAY.
I’ve been afraid of patterned tights since Gossip Girl made them such a trend. They look a tad bit tricky to pull off, which so makes me want to be the one who can pull them off perfectly.
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.
Military-inspired clothing is one of the biggest trends for fall, and while I’m not opposed to the idea, I am having a hard time picturing it fitting into my wardrobe. The trend is so tough and structured that it’s hard to imagine it meshing well with my girly floral dresses or my rocker-chick leather boots (which have enough tough all on their own).
I do believe it is officially mid-August, which means most of you will be headed back to campus in the next few weeks. It also means Back to School shopping is well underway, an occasion that might as well be deemed a national holiday. As a B2S pro, I’ve been asked by my adoring fans girls I used to babysit what items they should snag for a foolproof freshman wardrobe.
Last week I had a series of outfit mistakes, each one leaving me standing on a subway platform, sweating like a pig, wishing I could strip naked and put on something that wasn’t bringing on hot flashes like a menopausal woman.
