The Know: Lands End Gets a Major Makeover

So I barely look at my mail. Save for my magazines and some choice catalogs (J. Crew, Banana, Bloomies, to name a few), I hardly give my mail a second glance before tossing it in the growing pile on my desk. (What's the point? Most f it is earth-killing junk mail from Bank of America anyway.) But the other day, staring at me like a beacon of light was a NEW catalog. Something I had never seen before.

5 College Wardrobe Essentials

I do believe it is officially mid-August, which means most of you will be headed back to campus in the next few weeks. It also means Back to School shopping is well underway, an occasion that might as well be deemed a national holiday. As a B2S pro, I’ve been asked by my adoring fans girls I used to babysit what items they should snag for a foolproof freshman wardrobe.

Wardrobe Wish List: JCrew Stripe Confetti Ruffle Shirt

I’m a firm supporter of the whole “quality over quantity” argument when it comes to stocking my closet. I believe in having a handful of basic pieces that transcend the trends- a slow accumulation of great handbags, well-made shoes, and basic shirts and pants.

Candy Dish: JCrew Style on a College Budget?

• Get the JCrew look for under $25! • George Lopez hearts Conan O'Brien. • Britney shows us what she really looks like. • Should you pay for college with a credit card? • 50 Cent's got a secret...and Rufus Wainwright knows it? • What's with all the scary arms, Hollywood?

Wardrobe Wish List: J. Crew Toscana Shearling Earmuffs

As much as I try to curb it, I am a bit of a style snob. On a daily basis I find myself thinking “Where’s ‘What Not To Wear’ when you need them?” When winter comes, and the accessories get piled on, my judgment only finds more outlets to put in its two cents. A hat with bunny ears? Is that woman serious? And, whoa lady, that Russian hat looks like you wrapped some road kill around your head.

Wardrobe Wishlist: JCrew Glitter Pocket Cardigan

I have officially decided my heaven will be the inside of a JCrew store…. with a scantily clad, Abercrombie model serving me mojitos. I'll be surrounded by ruffled necklines, belted cashmere pullovers, and embellished tees. And of course I will be wearing the Glitter Pocket Cardigan.

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: Short Orgy

Who wears short shorts? We do! (Even if it means having to shave our legs.) With such limited opportunities in your life to wear short shorts, you might as well take advantage before the cellulite sets in.

It’s Raining, It’s Pouring, Fashion Doesn’t Have To Be Boring

They say April showers bring May flowers – so while we’re waiting for those flowers to bloom and for summer to mosey its long lazy days our way, why not have some rainy springtime fun?

Money Matters: Worth the Splurge? Maybe Not.

When shopping, I often find my wallet trying to convince my mind that the skirt, the moisturizer, or the heels in front of me are worth the outrageous price tag. But after I make the costly purchase, I wonder—was it worth it? To help answer this question, I’ve compiled a list of things that I feel are, and aren’t, worth the splurge during our sad and painful recession.
