My Fave Looks From New York Fashion Week

At first, I couldn't decide if I was liking anything that was popping out from behind the curtain. It looked like MC Hammer and Lucille Ball barfed onto some fabric, smeared the regurgitated styles all over models with paint on their faces and let it go on a long strip of runway. The chic, bold colors and '40s-inspired ideas came together awkwardly and I was pursing my lips like Ms. Wintour.

The Biggest Trends from Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week

Another New York Fashion Week has come and gone, and if it weren't for the fact that London starts up just as it ends, I'd be spiraling into a deep pit of fashion depression, downing Chunky Monkey as I flipped through pictures of my favorite collections for the 47th time.

New York Fashion Week: CC does BJ (Betsey Johnson)

What better way to spend Valentine's Day than at New York Fashion Week? When boys fail, fashion rules. In the famous Lincoln Center Theater on February 14th, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week showcased the fashion show of the season from the iconic Betsey Johnson. Our friends at Rowenta treated us to an extra-special night of floral prints, celebrities galore, crazy kooky hair and catwalk cartwheels.

Fashion Porn: Lovely Lace

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.

Fashion Porn: Doin’ it in Plaid

Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.

Fashion Porn: Stripe Orgy

This year's fashion trends range from the ranch to the yacht, and stripes are one of the perfect ways to look seaworthy this summer.

The easiest way to incorporate nautical elements into your wardrobe is with stripes.

8 Under $20: Leggings

I'll admit, a few years ago when leggings came back in style, I thought there was no way I'd wear them. In fact, I told everyone I knew that I'd rather "walk around pants-less than try and pass off some leggings as pants." Obviously, I've since eaten my words.

The Rival Rundown: Georgetown vs Syracuse

Our focus this week are two Big East schools who have thirty years of history as basketball powerhouses. Syracuse and Georgetown may be known for their excellence in ballin', but they are also competitive in top-notch academics and, er, curiously named mascots. Here's to one of the most well-rounded rivalries in college sports!

It’s On: TOTE-tally Fab Edition

Every girl's tote needs are totally (tee hee) different. Some of us carry body-bag size totes, while others prefer something a bit more...manageable. Some bring along a purse and a tote. Some of us carry only a tote, and fill it with everything from makeup to Macbooks.

Campus Couture: Bright, Bold, Bootylicious, Amalia

I knew I wanted to feature Amalia for my fashionista-of-the-week from the moment I saw her walking to Psych class, leggings tucked into her buckled riding boots and a funky bright-blue American Apparel zip-up on top.

Fashion Porn: Lace Orgy

Lace is easily one of the most popular fabrics this season. No longer just for your undies (though there are many, many pretty lace-y underthings available), Lady Gaga's VMA outfits, or your Grandma's doilies, lace has found it's way onto every type of clothing and accessory imaginable this season.

8 Under $20: Karma Loop

Thanks to the tips of a fellow CollegeCandy writer (thanks Cristina!), I have discovered a website I never knew existed. After getting over the fact that I was forced to live this long sans this site, I embraced the new find and I'm loving it! It's called Karma Loop and they have a great selection of some awesome brands.
