Not only do fashion brands have cute companies now, but they also have shareable content, and in my book that's pretty great.
Did you watch the Golden Globes last night? I did, and it really made me wish that I was a celebrity. A bunch of really beautiful people got together in gorgeous evening wear, drank champagne and gave out shiny little statues. Sounds great, right? Luckily the celebs had their phones out and were tweeting the night away!
Sure, watching the nighttime line-ups this fall might have me drooling over my favorite TV stars flaunting the hottest trends, but what I’m really searching for is something that gives me a little bit more how-to and a little less what-I-can’t-do as far as style goes. When I see the stars marching around on my television, I’m amazed by how effortlessly their style looks. Yes, I know they have teams of stylists and hair and make-up, but who cares? The bottom line is they look amazing and I can’t figure out how to look.
Pretty much everyone has an opinion on Rachel Zoe. I found myself wondering where I fall on the "love her or hate her" spectrum and determined I'm awkwardly crawling on the middle ground–attempting to justify her diva qualities for some beyond beautiful outfits.
We ladies are constantly on the look out for the hottest fashion(at the lowest prices) and the coolest trends. Even the girl who just wears the same pair of jeans everyday is looking for a comfortable pair of denim that make her ass look great. And that's why we're constantly providing a running commentary on the fashion we see on a daily basis. While some of it is certainly cringe-worthy, there's a lot of it that is ooo-ahh-I-want-it-worthy. It's not uncommon to see strangers ask each other where someone bought something.
In honor of Women’s History Month, CollegeCandy has decided to spotlight some of the world’s most influential women. Last week we focused on the women from our generation and this week, we pay attention to some of the most spectacular thirty-somethings. These are the women that show us life really does get interesting in your 30s, whether you're a famous movie star or activist.
Here at CollegeCandy we like to consider ourselves quite the fashion go-to girls. I mean, we tell you where to shop, what to buy, and how to wear it. So it’s only right that today, the first day of Mercedes Benz Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week (gah, that's a mouthful!), we offer you our two cents on what's to come.
I understand that fashion is completely subjective, but these Haute Couture designs seem like something that would worry Tim Gun and have Michael Kors shaking his overly tanned head. Giant ruffles? Boxy shapes? All those nip slips? This is the best these fashion legacies have to offer? And we're supposed to love it?
Confession: I miss hot-mess Nicole Richie. You know, 2003, fresh out of rehab, best friends with Paris Hilton, multi-colored, slightly raggedy extensions rocking, flashing boobies at fashion shows Nicole. I mean, sure, the babies are cute, her hair always looks silky and glorious, and the same antics that a 22-year-old engages in are a lot less cute in a 30-year-old.
We live in a social media obsessed world. There’s Facebook, Myspace, (although I wonder if anyone actually still uses it), Twitter, and many blogging platforms such as Tumblr, Wordpress, and Blogger. Although we upload our pictures to Flickr and Facebook all the time or write about our weekend experiences in personal blogs, there could be a possible downside to all of this internet exposure?
As much as we want to deny it, if my frozen toes are any indication, winter is on its way. And with winter comes lots of dark, gloomy fashion. The black and gray sweaters, the dark jeans, the Uggs. Ugh. But why? Winter is a beautiful season - all that bright, sparkly white snow - so I say it's time to trade those winter woes for winter whites.
When it comes to staying warm in the colder months, there's nothing like faux fur: it's so soft, warm, and chic. Plus, it's a much more humane and wallet-friendly solution for those of us who love the look and coziness of fur, but are on a budget and/or hate the idea of wearing real fur.
