If You Like This Expensive Store, You’ll Love This Cheap Store

I'm going to be honest with you -- my first thought after watching that Shopaholic film was 'so this means if I got a credit card, I could have amazing clothes like that too?' Definitely not the point, as every person I shared my revelation with was quick to point out. But what's a shopaholic on a limited budget to do? Figure out how to do it on the cheap!

Check Out the New Swimsuit Collection from Express!

I'm getting a little tired of this whole "April Showers" thing. Monday was supposed to be 70 (a huge deal for anyone living in New England), but what happened instead? Rain! Again! I'm ready for those sun shiny days, filled with beach cook outs and margaritas.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Rihanna is Lovely in Layers

There's no way I could continue to write a fashion column without highlighting Rihanna. This girl is one of the most eclectic celebrities out there. One day, the paparazzi snaps photos of her in suspenders and harem pants; the next, you could easily see her in a body-contouring mini-dress with 6-inch stilettos...going out to lunch.

Wardrobe Wish List: Express 2-in-1 Chiffon Vertical-Ruffle Dress

I’m in a lot of pain right now. I’d like to say it’s physical pain from all the hours I’ve been putting in at the gym, but unfortunately the unbearable heat wave has kept my butt right on the couch watching marathons of Say Yes to The Dress while internet shopping.

8 Under $20: Essential Summer Skirts

It's that time of year again: The season of the skirt. In all honesty, shorts really aren't my thing. Sometimes they squeeze in all the wrong love handles places and give me some serious wedgie dilemmas. That is why I have a great relationship with all of the skirts out there. They are girly, breathable, comfortable and wedgie-free. What more could a girl ask for?

Wardrobe Wish List: Express Escalating Ruffle Strapless Dress

I’m in one of those (very sad) stages where I don’t actually need anything. I know it’s hard to believe. But with months of winter buying under my belt, I have leggings and cashmere cardigans and sweater dresses everywhere (no seriously, I sleep with at least three articles of clothing every night).

Wardrobe Wishlist: Express High-Waist Geometric Pencil Skirt

As winter break winds down, I’m starting to have nightmares of exams, a jam packed calendar, and having my alarm wake me up before noon. But no matter how much I dread it, next semester is coming and it’s coming fast.

Holiday Gifts For Your Fashionista Friends

What does one get for the girl who has everything? The fashion obsessed chicadee who spends every ounce of her free time pouring over fashion magazines and blogs, scouring the racks at vintage stores and making a look that is all her own? The girl who's closet won't close, yet she still comes home with bags and bags of new stuff every time she leaves the house?

Shop Black Friday in Your PJ’s

Part of me gets butterflies just thinking about racks and racks of discounted clothing. I’ve been dreaming of Black Friday since I woke up over the toilet in a Tinker Bell costume on November 1st; the cheap designer handbags, the plasma TVs, the stops at Cinnabon and Auntie Anne's to refuel, the high of leaving the mall with all of my Christmas gifts and some money left in my bank account.

It’s On: Express vs. New York & Co.

New York & Co. and Express both sell clothes that most would consider “Business Casual/Professional Wear” and “Evening Wear.” And while you may not by your ridiculously sexy homecoming dress there, if you want to look sophisticated, sexy and like a grown up, these two stores are contending for your money.

8 Under $20: Express

So, Express isn't cheap. That is pretty obvious when you walk in and the hot shirt your eying for your birthday party is marked at $49. But every few months, they have a major sale. And I mean major. The kind that makes you giddy and happy and willing to sift through giant over-stuffed racks because the deals are just. that. good.

Wardrobe Jackpot: Boring Stores Reinvented

This recession totally sucks. But, if you ignore the unemployment rate and rising cost of beer, some good is definitely coming from it. And one of those positives is the fact that the plummeting sales of retail chains has caused them to re-evaluate their brand and reinvent themselves for fall.

Wardrobe Wish List: Bomber Jacket

Every year there’s that one item I MUST add to my closet (even if it means living on Ramen for the next month to afford it). Despite the fact that my shopping addiction has my closet filled to the brim, I always justify the need for a new piece by the “school shopping” tradition instilled in me since elementary school.

Shopping Your Closet: Just Add a Belt

Adding a belt is one of the easiest ways to update an outfit. Instead of going out and spending your money on an entire new ensemble, pick up a fun, stylish belt that works with something you already own!

Shopping Your Closet: Old Jeans

A few pairs of old jeans are probably taking up some of your precious closet space right now. They don't fit, they're out of style, and you haven't worn them in years. But don't be so quick to throw them out! Jeans are the easiest clothing items to update.

Day-to-Night Styler: Hanging With the BF (Jean)

Boyfriend jeans are a huge hit this season and I love 'em not only cuz they're totally comfy, but because they can easily go from cute & casual for day, to sexy & sassy at night with a few quick changes. The key to BF jeans is finding ones that are still feminine and not too baggy.

Day-to-Night Styler: From Casual Cool to Casual Chic

We all live busy lives; we go to school or work (or sometimes both), we try to keep our lives in order and, on top of everything else, we try to maintain a social life. It can all be a bit overwhelming at times, especially when you're running here, there and everywhere, and in the process of it all, still trying to look cute.
