Friday Faves: I’m Not at Oreo!

My friend called me her favorite Oreo. “You know," she said, "black on the outside, white on the inside.” I stared at her, trying to figure out what I could possibly say to that. She thought she was genuinely complimenting me. I mean, I don't even like Oreos.

I Love Your Style: Diablo Cody

Diablo Cody is one cool lady. Not just because she has a wicked awesome tattoo on her arm of a pinup girl, the fact that she won an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for Juno, her previous profession of being a talented "clothing-remover," or the fact that her name means "devil" in Spanish.

I Love Your Style: Leigh Lezark

DJ Leigh and her Misshapes posse like to bump electronica and indie rock. They are also known to attract the Hispter crowd, but I try to stay open-minded to the boundary-pushing that she, and her party-mates, tend to inspire people with. I just love their sound. I also find Leigh Lezark incredibly chic, cool and mysterious with her all-black ensembles, signature jet-black bob and aversion to ever smiling in a photograph.

The End of The LBD?

If you're like the majority of women, you've had it drilled into your head that the "little black dress" is the answer to all your wardrobe issues. It's listed in every "must-have" wardrobe list because it "looks soooo great on everyone!" But experts now say that in actuality, only 1 in 5 women look good in black.

Wardrobe Wish List: H&M Velvet Sneakers

This past weekend, I went on a bit of a shopping spree with my friend (yes, I realize that I should be saving my money for more important things like, I don’t know, college and my future, but the mall was calling me!). We get there and what do I see? H&M, which was still under construction the last time I had been at the mall, had finally opened!

Wardrobe Wish List: Banana Republic Flannel Military Jacket

With fall here, it’s time to start adding new outerwear to your closet, and while many people argue that everyone needs a boyfriend blazer, I think everyone should be picking up this military jacket from Banana Republic.

I’m Not an Oreo!

My friend called me her favorite Oreo. “You know," she said, "black on the outside, white on the inside.” I gaped at her, trying to figure out what I could possibly say to that. She thought she was genuinely complimenting me. I mean, I don't even like Oreos.

Wardrobe Wish List: Adidas Gazelle Ballerina

I love flats. I practically wear them every day and to all occasions. I can’t even remember what I used to wear before I started slipping on those cute and comfy babies. Wait, yes I do. It was sneakers (love my Chucks), but I had to find something else after I realized that old school Nikes are not acceptable for all occasions. Like job interviews.

8 Under $20: Forever 21

So as I write this, I'm sitting on my lanai (balcony) overlooking the beautiful, blue Maui ocean (yes, I'm on my first "real" vacay in years), which means I'm not particularly keen on scouring the internet for under $20 deals for long periods of time (not to mention, they're only giving me an hour of free wifi). So where did I head? The mother of all cheap & trendy spots: Forever 21.

Wardrobe Wish List: Stanton Sandal

I’ve never paid much attention to the Tory Burch brand. Seeing every girl and her mother walking around in those flats with the instantly recognizable golden medallion was quite enough. However, I recently stumbled upon these gladiators, and I have to say that they’re one of the nicest pairs I’ve seen.

Miss Manners: The DL on Weddings

One of my oldest childhood friends is getting married this Saturday and, quite frankly, I am horrified by the thought of attending his wedding. Not that I have anything against the lovebirds; on the contrary, I’m glad he’s happy. It’s just, well… I never know how to act at weddings. There are just too many unspoken rules, too many unanswered questions...

Wardrobe Wish List: Cutout Back Dress

This may look like any ordinary knit dress from the front, but turn around to reveal (and surprise your friends!) some awesome and sexy cutouts on the back. They turn this otherwise plain dress into one fit for a fabulous night out on the town.
