Greek Speak: The Best and Worst Theme Parties Ever

If there's one thing a sorority woman knows (besides the names of all her founding sisters/the words to every rush song/the rules to scoring the best room in the house) it's a theme party. I don't know if it's in the official rules of Greek Life but sororities/fraternities and theme parties go together like cheating spouses and Hollywood.

I Love Your Style: Elvira Hancock

I saw Scarface once. Yes, one time and I was barely paying attention. Typically movies about Cuban drug lords and mafia crime in Miami don't exactly thrill a Midwestern girl like me. It's a little difficult to relate to Tony Montana's lifestyle choices, but Elvria, on the other hand, well that's a whole other story.

Bad Advice Women Get: Grocery Store Glamour

Everyone knows that sometimes it’s nice to forget fashion and wear whatever’s comfortable—especially if you’re just out running errands. Well, everyone but Suze Yalof Schwartz of Glamour Magazine.

From CollegeFashion: Reinventing Retail Therapy

We’re all guilty of retail therapy. I know nothing makes me feel better when I’m down than a warm new cardigan, or a brand new party dress to boost my self-esteem. However, retail therapy can also go VERY wrong. When emotions are high, it’s all too easy to make impulse buys that will leave your closet full of regretful purchases and your wallet empty.

Wardrobe Wish List: Belted And Buckled Bootie

I love clothes. I have a closet full of them. And 2 dressers. And an underbed storage thingy. Yet, when it comes to getting dressed I tend to go for the same things every time. I don't know if it's laziness or just a lack of creativity, but I always find myself in the same outfit: a black shirt and jeans.

Single. And Looking Good, If I Do Say So Myself.

I was sitting on the bike at the gym yesterday, sweating out my stress to some Drake, when a cute boy sits on the bike next to me. I was so excited and in luuuurve, but instead of focusing on engaging in witty banter and knocking the socks off this kid, I was wondering if my eye makeup from the day had made its way down my face yet, and if sweat could ever be remotely flattering.

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.

Fashion Porn: Dress Orgy

Dresses are to me as naked ladies are to boys: irresistible. And sexy. And the pictures I look at most on the internet. Though they are often associated with special occasions - probably due to the puffy versions with crinoline underskirts young girls were forced into - they don't have to be.
