Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Olivia Wilde is Daring and Divine

Olivia Wilde has been up and coming for a few years. To me, she will always be Marissa Cooper's experiment with lesbianity on The OC, but she's definitely moved on to slightly more prestigious fare since then (oh you know, only snagging a regular role on House). She's been a staple on sexiest actresses list for a few years because...well, have you looked her?

What To Wear To Your Winter Internship

After spending weeks searching Internships.com, writing cover letters and getting a few interviews, you've finally managed to land an internship for next semester. Wahoooo! You're all ready to start - now what the heck do you wear? Dressing for internships can be difficult, especially on the limited college girl wardrobe. You want to look professional, obviously, but you also want to look, well, like you.

Shop Your Closet: Cropped Blazer

One of the most versatile items you can have in your wardrobe is a blazer. When you're operating with limited closet space or a limited budget, you want to make sure you have items (especially outerwear) that go with pretty much anything, and a cropped blazer is one of the go-to pieces you should own.

Shop Your Closet: Full Skirt

Fashion is all about recycling trends (which is why I kick myself when I think about all those leggings I got rid of in the '90s ). One decade that made a strong reappearance during the Fall/Winter 2010 runway shows was the 1950s. With the overwhelming popularity of Man Med, this really comes as no surprise

8 Under $20: J. Crew’s Having a Sale

One of my favorite places to shop before school is J.Crew. Everything about it is sophisticated, fresh and fabulous. But my only issue with the store is that all that sophistication doesn't come cheap. Sometimes I'll walk in, pick up a cute skinny belt for my new pencil skirt (from Marshalls...), look at the price tag and try not to strangle myself with it.

From CollegeFashion: 3 Pieces to Wear Now and Later

Versatility is everything when it comes to fashion on a budget; when shopping for new clothes in summer, I always look for pieces that will work in hot weather and easily transition into fall.

Wardrobe Wish List: Madison Marcus Infinite Striped Jacket

I feel like all I’ve been seeing are American flags plastered to every store window and bumper. Which is fine by me. Who’s going to complain about a whole day off from work to down 30 beers and stuff your face with hamburgers? (...And celebrate our country, of course!)

Senior Files: Creating the Perfect Work Wardrobe

Graduation is fast approaching and soon we college girls will have to swap our flip flops and sweats for pumps and two-piece suits. Unless you have an amazing job where you can work in your PJs, you’re going to need to update your wardrobe with some real people clothes (that don’t permanently smell of pizza and beer, no matter how many times you wash them).

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: Cuffed Boyfriend Blazer

Whether worn over a cute spring dress or paired with skinny jeans, the basic boyfriend blazer is a must-have for every woman’s closet. Now don’t get me wrong, I obviously love me a basic black boyfriend blazer (say that five times fast… I dare you), but it can also look pretty boring and plain.

Campus Couture: KP, Quinnipiac

It was time for me to get a “little sister” in my sorority, and I knew the girl I was looking for had to be stylish (it runs in our family.) And along came KP. When she wasn’t wearing sorority letters, she was rocking some seriously edgy outfits, always accompanied by studded belts and funky vests.

Wardrobe Wish List: Jewelera’s Cotton Field Sweater Guard From Etsy

Every fashionista knows Etsy.com is an online goldmine. Not only is everything one-of-a-kind unique, handcrafted by independent designers, but it is my personal go-to website for cutting edge accessories and unexpected finds.
