If you haven’t caught on by now, it’s official: I’m smitten with all things military-inspired. Despite the short summer season,...
You've got your mattress cover, your mini-fridge, your XL twin sheets, and lots of garbage bags, but there is a whole category of dorm room essentials you are skipping out on. DORMWEAR. Because, if you're like me, no matter how hard you try and fight the stereotypical college student walking round in pajamas and sweats thang, there are times you will break down
One mom approved must-have for both fall and college is a chic fall jacket. The perfect fall jacket is neutral, goes with all your favorite clothes and fits just right. Not to mention, it "keeps you warm on those walks to class. You don't want to catch a cold!" (Thanks, ma.)
Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.
What's the one thing you should have in your closet before moving to school? It's definitely not a pair of sweats or an oversized tee. But, if you do it right, this very special wardrobe essential can feel just as good.
If you've grown a bit sea sick from all the nautical-inspired clothes you've been sporting this summer, why not return to dry land and go more utilitarian with the military-inspired pieces dominating stores? These pieces have a harder look, with cargo pockets, neutral colors and grommet detailing.
One of my favorite Spring 2010 fashion shows this year was D&G with their western wear inspired collection. Being from Calgary, Alberta, home to the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth," I see a lot of western wear during the 10 days of the Calgary Stampede. And most of it is tacky, ugly and ill fitting.
There's usually anxiety surrounding your first time each year in a bikini, meaning it's time to hit the gym (if you haven't already started.) While you may dread going to the gym even more than putting on a swimsuit, there are so many fun ways to get into shape now that it's warm out. There's hooping, tennis (with the best clothes EVER!), soccer, jogging, rollerblading and much, much more.
With so many summer colors and patterns to choose from this year, it's hard to know what to pair them with. While you could pair the bright yellows, pretty pastels or the super popular turquoise with denim, khaki or another solid neutral, the bold black and white prints available this season are a more interesting way to go.
A few weeks ago Sarah Jessica Parker inspired Fashion Porn. This week, it's inspired by someone completely different. While doing my usual online browsing, I discovered Forever 21's "Inspired by La Roux" page. I've been drooling over pictures of Elly Jackson of La Roux's style.
My inspiration for Fashion Porn can come from anywhere. (OK, anywhere except actual porn. Have you seen what those people wear?!) Last week, for example, it came from kicking off my third summer in a row by donning a cowboy hat for a week. And this week I'm feeling inspired by none other than Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker and that gorgeous yellow Valentino dress she wore for the Sex And The City 2 premiere.
