Okay, you can’t deny this. Everyone enjoys looking expensive without a doubt, and that is especially when it comes to...
Because pants suck.
Ah...another fall, another take on the classic debate.
In the colder months, all I want to do is roll out of bed, take my blankets with me and sit in class with a cup of hot chocolate. The closest thing to my pjs would probably be leggings, a hoody and some Ugg boots, as they definitely offer the most comfort, but I love fashion, and I'm a firm believer that you can have comfort and style at the same time.
Being as this is the season of Lent, when good Catholic boys and girls are sacrificing one of their favorite luxuries for 40 days, I started to wonder, how productive an idea is this for the 21st century? I’m all for penance, don’t get me wrong, love me some BDSM, but while you can give up certain things, are their ones that you shouldn’t give up?
• Would you buy a pair of the grossest leggings ever? • Robert Downey Jr. named his son Exton. • This guy can't handle the Bieber Fever. • Who's on your dream Dancing with the Stars cast? • Did you stalk your middle school crushes? (Admit it.) • Celebrities pets are the cutest pets.
Even though Olivia Palermo hasn't graced our TV screens in a while, the paparazzi is still following her around. I don't know why, but she's stylish and I covet many of her ensembles, so I'm cool. She's like the American Kate Middleton, but way more visually interesting (and personally I think she has better hair).
Looking back at childhood photos can be a pretty painful experience. While we’d like to blame our parents for dressing us like idiots, the truth is we used to beg them to buy us the most heinous apparel. In retrospect, our multicolored braces weren’t cool, leggings didn’t fit our bodies as good back then as they do now, and our pink fuzzy pigtail holders didn’t make us look like Baby Spice, they made us look like baby prostitutes.
I am not a leisure wear person. I only wear hoodies out in public when running errands or at the curling rink. I do dress for comfort when I'm at home, but people rarely see me like this. Want proof? A couple of weeks ago a friend came to my building to grab something and her boyfriend told me he had never seen me dressed casually before (I was wearing a hoodie and jeans). After receiving my UNCL hoodie, this might change.
I could probably wrack my brain and crank out a seriously amazing sociology paper on the phenomenon of Kim Kardashian and how she parlayed having a big butt and a sex tape into a legitimate, relatively long-lasting career, but I'd much rather talk about her banging sense of style.
One of the biggest fashion trends for the 2010-2011 fall/winter season is velvet. The ultra-soft fabric looks and feels luxurious, so it's great for holiday parties. It's also warm, making it perfect for cold weather.
It might be your roommate’s birthday, or your birthday, or just another Saturday night on campus. Either way, you are currently standing in front of your over-stuffed closet in a towel with wet hair dripping down your back. You’ve got your pre-party mix blasting from your laptop as you scan your closet for something to wear.
I love most things about fall - anything made with pumpkin, cozy sweaters and my TV shows starting back up - but the one thing I've never been a fan of is the dampness and rain that comes with all these wonderful things. At least until I invested in a pair of good quality rain boots.
