Rent the Runway Look of the Week: The Perfect LBD

I am obsessed with little black dresses. Quite literally obsessed. So obsessed that whenever I am shopping for a fancy dress I have to avoid even trying on the black ones because I know I will buy them. They’re slimming, dressy and I already have all the accessories I need to style them. My closet is in desperate need of a bit of color… but we’ll deal with that another time.

Campus Couture: KP, Quinnipiac

It was time for me to get a “little sister” in my sorority, and I knew the girl I was looking for had to be stylish (it runs in our family.) And along came KP. When she wasn’t wearing sorority letters, she was rocking some seriously edgy outfits, always accompanied by studded belts and funky vests.

The End of The LBD?

If you're like the majority of women, you've had it drilled into your head that the "little black dress" is the answer to all your wardrobe issues.

We Love

My aversion to pants puts a strain on my wardrobe when the autumn weather rolls into town. But this season’s addiction to brightly colored tights has come to my rescue. Taking my fashion cue from Blair Waldorf and the rest of the Gossip Girl cast, bright, opaque tights are the remedy for the end-of-summer blues.

Fashion Porn: Dress Orgy

Dresses are to me as naked ladies are to boys: irresistible. And sexy. And the pictures I look at most on the internet. Though they are often associated with special occasions - probably due to the puffy versions with crinoline underskirts young girls were forced into - they don't have to be.

Day-to-Night Styler: Turn Back Time
