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.

The Weekly Ten: Summertime Must-haves

Maybe it's just the 90 degree heat that's making me dizzy has me thinking summer, but June 21st is just around the corner and I'm already starting to load up on sundresses and break out the plaid shorts. In honor of the simply fantastic weather that the northeast graced me with this weekend, I'm counting down the 10 summer must-haves.

Campus Couture: Victoria, Simmons College

Victoria is one of the most creative people I know. She’s an art and marketing major who can make anything look perfect, whether it’s her website, her dorm room or herself.

Duke It Out: Socks and Sandals?

Ok, I noticed this one floating around out there early this fall and the time has come for somebody to say something - what's the deal with wearing socks with our summer heels? At first I thought it was just J Crew trying to make socks sexy or cute or something that will make us want to buy them...

Smart, Savvy, and Sustainable Shopping

As you may have gathered from my previous articles, I am a shopaholic. Even if I have no money, I can’t help but scour the internet for deals at the online sample sales (seriously, check out Ideeli, it’s amazing). And even though I can’t always buy sustainable products, I still try to buy in sustainable ways.

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.

Wardrobe Wish List: J. Crew Garden Dress

If there's one thing I love most about summer, it's the freedom to flounce around every day in cute sundresses. They're my go-to look - breezy, easy to wear, and feminine. Naturally, when I saw this J.Crew Garden Dress I needed to have it.

Fashion Porn: Khaki Orgy

Once upon a time, khaki was used strictly for military uniforms. That time has come and gone, and while the word khaki is derived from a word meaning 'dusty', it doesn't have to look drab. Gap has revolutionized this fabric with their latest CFDA Design Collection that hits stores this week. Hot designers, such as Alexander Wang and Vena Cava, made this drab fabric fab-u-lous.

Fashion Porn: Outerwear Orgy

Sometimes it's just too cold to go jacketless on a summer night - but that doesn't mean you have to ruin your perfect summer outfit with a heavy coat, or warm sweater. While you could chance it, and pray you meet a hot (and chivalrous) man that will keep you warm on those chilly nights, sometimes a girl has to take care of herself.

I’m Torn: Boyfriend Jeans

Comfortable but ugly fashion trends are easy to feel torn about. We've already covered Uggs and gigantic handbags, both of which can be hit or miss. This season, however, one of the hottest (or ugliest?) trends in denim from all designers happen to be the boyfriend jean.
