Budget Stylista: Greaser-Inspired Style

The classic greaser look is comprised of Levi's 501s, a slightly oversized leather jacket, and Harley Davidson-inspired biker boots. But nowadays this look has been reinvented time and time again. This 50s-inpsired look includes a fusion of structure and slouch, chains, bulk, and general badass.

Budget Stylista: Not Your High School Uniform Plaid

Plaid is one of thing that never goes out of style, but I'm sure many ladies who had to wear a plaid skirt pre-university gag at the thought of wearing plaid again. While it's true that it's pretty difficult to ditch the school girl appearance with a pleated plaid skirt, there are many other ways to wear plaid.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Halle Berry is Sophisticated and Sexy

Halle Berry is a critically acclaimed, history-making, Academy Award winning actress. A former Bond Girl. A mother. And, obviously, a regulation hottie. She made super-short hair desirable. She's always on "most beautiful/sexiest" lists...

Fashion Porn: Fashion Goes S&M

Leather is one of the biggest fabrics for fall 2010. It is also one of the easiest to embrace because EVERYTHING can be made in leather: bags, shoes, leggings, shorts, jackets, skirts...the list goes on. And I love it all. Leather is sexy. It's edgy. And it makes everything look cool.

Fashion Porn: Do It In a Fall Jacket

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.)

Budget Stylista: Break Out The White Pants

White jeans are everywhere these days: magazines, store windows, tampon commercials (I don't care how maxi that maxi tampon is, I do not believe you will have my back - or my underwear in this case - in white pants!) And they're cute. They are a great way to lighten up denim for the summer and look so great with so many things.

I Love Your Style: Willa Holland

Sometimes I will find myself enjoying things that clash in a good way. Things like dipping tortilla chips in hummus, or writing an article about fashion inspiration while listening to the Red Wings hockey game in the background. But if there's one clash that I find myself diggin' this week, it's that between Willa Holland's real-life style and her on-set style.

Budget Stylista: Reduce, Reuse, Rewear!

We all have that friend who can wear the same dress over and over and over again, but each time it somehow looks new. Or different. Or cooler. "I wish I could do that," you think as you stare at your dress and think that by wearing different shoes you will somehow achieve a whole new look.

Budget Stylista: Falling for Fall Jackets

If you live in coat-wearing climates, a great coat is worth spending a little more on because you wear it day in and day out. It's what most people see you in (i.e. that cute boy walking right next to you on your way to class!) and it's the best way to cover up a hot-mess-schlumpy outfit.

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.

Budget Stylista: A Now and Later That’s Better Than The Candy

Let's face it - August is a hard month for shopping. Everywhere you go, window displays scream mohair and motorcycle boots, but you are still sittin' pretty (and very happily) in your flowery sundress, thankyouverymuch.
