Last time I did a purse inventory (it has to be done when you've got a collection like mine), I realized something: all of my purses are super-sized. You won't find any mini's hanging around in my closet! I'm 5'8, so I can rock larger purses and since I'm a student, I'm always looking for purses that fit at least a textbook and a notebook. However, this can be a problem when I'm looking for a lighter purse for a day of shopping or a night of margaritas at the local club.
Whether you choose to wear a bikini or a one-piece, you're going to need a cover-up for going to the beach, or even just covering up a bit to avoid extreme sun exposure. Lucky for you there are some really cute options this year that will easily transition from the beach to the boardwalk (assuming you dry yourself up enough to avoid those pesky wet marks around your boobs...).
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.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day and you know what that means: beer, hot dogs, and your dad making inappropriate weiner jokes by the grill. But you know what else it means? Summer. is. here. and it's time to bust out those summer whites that make you look super chic and extra tan.
Pastels reminiscent of the colors of everyone's favorite chocolate Easter treat have made their way onto store shelves and I am excited! Pale blues, pinks, yellows, greens, etc. have a way of lifting the spirits, like a warm spring breeze or the smell of flowers on your way to class.
I love rain boots a little more than anyone my age probably should. However, I feel this love is justified - on top of being SUPER adorable, wellies also keep your feet dry, making them practical as well. Over the last few years, retailers have rolled out all sorts of fun, bright-colored, patterned boots for you to go dancing in the rain.
The '90s have made a comeback. No, MC Hammer won't be kicking off an international tour any time soon, but chambray is sweeping the globe.
As we head back to school, the transition back to independence from mom's home cooking, added to the cold weather and lack of sunshine can lead to a gloomy, grey day. One way to embrace that blue mood is by dressing how you feel, made easy with the rising popularity of the color grey.
Every girl's tote needs are totally (tee hee) different. Some of us carry body-bag size totes, while others prefer something a bit more...manageable. Some bring along a purse and a tote. Some of us carry only a tote, and fill it with everything from makeup to Macbooks.
This week's Budget Stylista goes out to every girl like me who's trekked in sloshy snow to her favorite shop and couldn't stop herself from loading up on the spring styles. No more waiting 6 long, cold months to sport your new goods; I will show you how to wear them now without catching frostbite and then again once the snow (and your body) thaws out.
I'm starting to get into the Christmas spirit. While I'm listening to classics like Mariah Carey's All I Want for Christmas is You, or new favorites like Lady Gaga's Christmas Tree, I find the Christmas spirit inspiring my wardrobe. My favorite way to express my Christmas cheer: wearing red.
While the cardigan can be associated with our favorite childhood neighbour, Mr. Rogers, the cardigan is no longer just for old men. A cardigan is easily the most versatile piece of clothing you can own. Chicer than a hoody, the cardigan goes with everything, be it with jeans or over a dress.
Lace is easily one of the most popular fabrics this season. No longer just for your undies (though there are many, many pretty lace-y underthings available), Lady Gaga's VMA outfits, or your Grandma's doilies, lace has found it's way onto every type of clothing and accessory imaginable this season.
