Tuffy Luv Luvs Your Honesty With Guyz

Dear Tuffy Luv, I've never wanted a relationship. I mean, I'm 19 years old, why should I? Now, dating, that's where it's at. But I keep finding myself in sticky situations. I'll be seeing a guy and he'll bring up the "exclusive" conversation when, wait a second, weren't we diggin' this whole casual thing two dates ago?

Tuffy Luv Sez: Casual LDR?! WTF?!

Dear Tuffy Luv, I recently graduated from college and moved back home because I got a job offer. Around the time college was ending, I was casually seeing this new guy. We currently live about three hours away from each other and are in very different situations; I have moved back in with my parents and have a serious job, whereas he still lives with roommates and works hard but parties a lot harder...

Military inspiration is everywhere this season. I mean, anyone who reads this website can see that. From t-shirts to jackets, bags to boots, everyone's getting in on the camo fun. So, of course that means cargo pants are back

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Christina Aguilera Goes Casual

I’m an unabashed Xtina lover. She snagged me with “Reflections” (yes, I took it all the way back to Mulan), and I’ve stuck with her through her various musical and aesthetic reinventions, from the dirty to the vintage to the futuristic.

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!)

I Love Your Style: Margot Tenenbaum

he Royal Tenenbaums is one of Wes Anderson's many dysfunctional-family masterpieces he is infamous for. Besides portraying one of the strangest and most awkward families known to humanity, the main characters in The Royal Tenenbaums each have an extremely specific style, much like cartoons, that they hardly ever drift from.

8 Under $20: Alloy

I'll be honest: I always thought Alloy was for the 12-17 age group, but then I started flipping through their merchandise and realized that they have a ton of cute stuff for us more sophisticated ladies. I mean, how could you not love this dress!?

Wardrobe Wish List: JCrew’s Slub Cotton Crystal Necklace Tee

Okay, I, like most girls, love to dress up. I love zipping up a sexy dress, painting on some dramatic cat eyes, and slipping into some sky-high heels. But I also have those weekends when I am so burnt out, running from class to work to the gym, that I rather curl up in my pajamas and hide under the covers all weekend then spend an hour putting together an outfit.

The Budget Stylista: Cardi(gan) Hardy

Last week we talked about revamping the essential cardigan from your closet and updating it. But as the old saying goes: "make new friends but keep the old." So while I'm not discouraging you from busting out that cardigan from sophomore year of high school, I'm also not your mom yelling, "You do not need and can NOT afford that new sweater, honey!"

Day-to-Night Styler: Turn Back Time

Vintage/vintage-inspired fashion is a great way to add a fun flair to the every day. Why wear a simple cotton dress when you can easily bring a unique retro look into the mix? I'm all about playing with fashion, so this week's Day-to-Night Styler is taking a trip down memory lane. I found a darling 50's style dress that can smoothly transition from day to night and look totally bangin' wherever you decide to wear it.
