The Many Ways to Style a Maxi-Dress

I have to be honest, I used to be a little scared of maxi-dresses. Okay, not waking-up-in-the-middle-of-the-night scared, but just a little nervous. They were always one of those trends that I thought looked great on other people - usually tall, gorgeous people - but I'd always been too nervous to try.

Maxi dresses have been popular for several seasons now and this year is no exception! Maxi dresses fit in with this season's emphasis on '70s fashion, and their easy, effortless style makes them perfect for the spring and summer.

I Love Your Style: Frida Kahlo

Besides Frida Kahlo being known for those tightly wound locks on her head, she's also known as the only woman with a mustache and unibrow who had men and women lusting after her and her artwork. Now that's some kind of sex appeal I will never know.

Fashion Porn: Get It On in your Go-To Dress

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.

8 Under $20: Totally Turquoise

Word on the runway is the color for summer is turquoise. Yay! I am more than happy about this fate. Turquoise looks so glamorous with glowing skin and a mojito. And something else I've noticed about the color? The exotic hue never looks cheap, not even when you're loading up on it for under $20.

The Weekly Ten: Summer, Meh

By now, everyone is looking forward to the summer. Thoughts of a pool, a raft and a cold beer are about the only things getting us through the hell that is finals week. But while I love me some summer sundresses and the prospect of a steamy summer fling, summer isn't all rainbows and butterflies for me. Yes, this whiny girl with a Jew-fro has a bit of a bone to pick with summer.

Budget Stylista: Business in the Front, Party in the Back!

Baby's got back my friends. And by baby I mean the term of endearment I now use to call all of these amazingly sexy dresses. This summer, dresses with some sort of fun/sexy back detailing or cut-out are all over the place. Sure you might think that cleavage is where it's at, but when you think about it these dresses make total sense.

Shopping Your Closet: Long Skirts

So, long skirts were in style at some point in the last 5 years and you somehow have, like, 12 taking up space in the back of your closet. You're obvi more into the show-off-your-legs kinda skirts these days, but you can't bear to part with them. You don't have to - in fact, they could be the most versatile pieces in your entire wardrobe!

Wardrobe Wish List: Sleeveless in Blue Ocean

I have a shocking confession to make: the dress before you is a maternity dress. And while I fully realize that this is a maternity dress and that's kind of weird, there is no denying that it is adorable. A super-fit, super-skinny blonde that I know showed up to work wearing this dress and I swear I thought she bought it at Nordstrom.

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.
