10 Things You Can Do Now That It’s Spring!

Yesterday, I went to the mall to return some stuff and, unfortunately, walked by a Payless. You see I am not a shoe-obsessed person or anything, but I can't be alone in saying my feet are tired of walking around in knee-high boots.

Payless: The Perfect Fall Accessory

Accessories are the easiest way to keep your rotating pieces looking bold an on-trend. When they’re from Payless, you don’t need to drain your piggy bank for cool new looks. You can mix up your go-to looks with hats, scarves and bags. After a few purchases, you’ll swear you have a whole new wardrobe.

Shop Your Closet: Military Jackets

When moving into either a dorm or an off-campus apartment, your wardrobe will face two major challenges: 1. A major lack of funding (to add more to it). 2. A major lack of storage space. For these two reasons alone, maximizing what you do own becomes essential.

Fashion Porn: Doin’ it in Plaid

Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.

Fashion Porn: Beach Cover-up Orgy

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...).

Fashion Porn: Black and White Get it On!

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.

Fashion Porn: Chains and Studs Get it On

A few weeks ago Sarah Jessica Parker inspired Fashion Porn. This week, it's inspired by someone completely different. While doing my usual online browsing, I discovered Forever 21's "Inspired by La Roux" page. I've been drooling over pictures of Elly Jackson of La Roux's style.

Fashion Porn: Wedge Orgy

Whoever said diamonds are a girl's best friend, obviously never tried to walk in 4-inch heels - if they had, they'd know that a woman's real best friend is a hot pair of wedges.

8 Under $20: Summer Sandals

It's been so long since I've slipped on a pair of sandals I'm not even sure I remember how to walk in them. My little piggies haven't seen the light of day in months and now that it's finally getting warm out there, I'm itching for some new sandals to show off these freshly pedicured toesies. It's a good thing everyone and their mother is designing adorable sandals these days.

Fashion Porn: Green Orgy

I'm going to be a little blunt - I personally think that dressing up for holidays is a little lame. There are, however, 2 exceptions 1. Halloween (duhhh) 2. St. Patrick's Day.

Fashion Porn: Bright Orgy

After a long, cold, gray winter, I think it's safe to say that everyone is looking forward to spring. And by spring, I mean SPRING BREAK, baby. And while we all need a little warm breeze in our lives, what I'm looking forward to most is ditching the chunky sweaters and embracing spring clothes!

Fashion Porn: Polka Dot Orgy

The countdown to spring continues. Only three (fingers crossed) more weeks to go! As my school's spring break was last week, I am currently enviously admiring the tans of my classmates lucky enough to flee warmer weather. With most American schools still weeks away from break, now is the time to start thinking about what to wear.

Fashion Porn: Flat Orgy

Until the sun is shining and the temperature rises enough to expose the tops of my feet, I'm left admiring the plethora of flats retailers have to offer this year. With most shops carrying inexpensive options, it's easy to stock up on styles that fit with (and add some style to) all your favorite outfits. Flats are one of those items that can be worn to subtly incorporate a season's hottest trends.

Fashion Porn: Stiletto Orgy

There are very few things sexier than a stiletto heel. Stilettos give off a "femme fatale" image; "femme" in the way they enhance your legs and "fatale" in the way that if you fall in them you could die. But that's a risk this girl is willing to take for the beauty of a stiletto heel.

Fashion Porn: Red Orgy

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.

8 Under $20: Payless

It's really no secret that Payless carries a bevy of cute, stylish and affordable shoes these days, especially with designers like Lela Rose, Alice + Olivia and Christian Siriano designing for them. But did you know they also carry a slew of frugalista-friendly accessories

What He Really Thinks Of Your… Christian Siriano Shoes

This Fall it’s all about affordable designer collaborations like Anna Sui for Target, Max Azria for Walmart and Christian Siriano for Payless. Yes, I said Payless. As in, Payless where you used to get your penny-loafers and light up sneakers as a kid. That Payless. I must admit - I was skeptical at first, but with Christian Siriano behind it, how can I expect it to be anything less than “fierce”?

Fashion Porn: Necklace Orgy

The perfect accessories can entirely make an outfit. They can spice up a basic t-shirt and jean combo, or put the finishing touch on your hot going-out dress. One of the most basic ways to accessorize an outfit (even that stuff that's already in your closet!) is with a necklace.

Candy Dish: The Iranian Protests Continue…

• Iranian student protesters targeted by government. • Poor Piano Man got dumped. • Everything I know I learned from hip hop. • Someone's talkin smack about Will Smith. • Lindsay Lohan and Paris will do anything to get back in the tabs. • OMG we need these shoes.

Day-to-Night Styler: Spring is in the Air

So spring has (finally!) sprung and I don't know about you, but for me that means pulling out all those cute sundresses, sandals and the rest of my spring/summer wardrobe that I love so much. So in honor of spring, I figured I'd focus this week's day-to-night styler on a basic sundress that can be easily converted into a stylish and sassy outfit for the evening.

Look on the Bright Side: Adding Some Color to Your Wardrobe

It's been a long, cold winter and not only have we been forced to bundle up, chances are we've all been sporting dark and drab wear, as is typical in the winter months. While we still have a few weeks left of cold before we can start rockin' those cute spring clothes, we can start adding a little pazazz to our boring winter wardrobes with little pops of color.
