Jennifer Lawrence is Sexy and Sultry [Celebrity Chic on the Cheap]

I do think she's really pretty, and I like her sense of style. It's really simple and timeless - she's into basic pieces that are versatile and timeless, without being totally dull.

Kate Middleton Is Preppy and Peppy [Celebrity Chic on the Cheap]

While The Duchess Formerly Known As Kate Middleton has excellent style (some may some boring, I say classic), it does have a tendency to be a little...monochromatic.

Budget Stylista: Not Your High School Uniform Plaid

Plaid is one of thing that never goes out of style, but I'm sure many ladies who had to wear a plaid skirt pre-university gag at the thought of wearing plaid again. While it's true that it's pretty difficult to ditch the school girl appearance with a pleated plaid skirt, there are many other ways to wear plaid.

Budget Stylista: Memorial Day Sale Style

Memorial Day weekend is here! School is out, barbecues are in and it’s that in-between week where you’re home from school and not on to your summer plans yet, be it trip or internship or job. So the perfect thing to do with mom this weekend (aside from eating hot dogs and slaw)?! Shop. Duh!

How to Put Together a Cute Outfit in Under 10 Minutes!

I have a confession: I love my snooze button. Unfortunately, though, sleeping in doesn’t always allow me ample time to put together a well-thought-out outfit. Because of my love of both sleeping in and fashion, as soon as I got to college, I knew I needed a plan.

Budget Stylista: From The Gym to the Street

Let's face it, looking cute for a workout is often a challenge. Actually, it's a total after-thought. You wake up, grab the first oversized t-shirt you can find and stumble to the gym in a haze, never giving much thought to what you look like or what your plans are after you tighten your core.

8 Under $20: Colorblocking

Colorblocking is one of the hottest trends this year, and I, for one, am thrilled about it. I love bright colors, but they can be a little intimidating to wear. Colorblocked clothing makes wearing brights simple by pairing multiple coordinating and/or contrasting brights together with neutrals. You don't even need to do anything but put that ish on!

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Lauren Conrad is Sweet and Simple

Lauren Conrad is completely and utterly brilliant. She has somehow managed to parlay getting paid to turn her teenage/college-aged angst into an empire. She has a clothing line, a series of books (that I am unabashedly addicted to, btdubs), a lifestyle website (how very Gwyneth), and is a staple on best dressed lists.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Kate Moss is Breezy in Black

Kate Moss is ridiculously beautiful, not easy to relate to, and more than a bit troubled...my favorite kind of celebrity. And one of the few celebs whose casual style is perhaps even better than her red carpet looks. She somehow makes the simplest outfits look totally haute couture and runway ready.

Budget Stylista: It's All About the Flats

It's still too cold for sandals and wedges (especially this April where Detroit witnessed a 4-inch snow storm on April 18th! WTF, Mother Nature?!), but we shudder at the thought of having to tuck our calves into our boots for the 1,478th day in a row. Flats are the perfect in-betweener.
