Budget Stylista – Bow-Ties for Everyday

One of the big trends for women this year is the tuxedo. And yes, I said for women. Just think Janelle Monae rocking on stage with her signature big bow-tie. While wearing a tuxedo is over the top for both men and women on a day-to-day basis (and tuxedo shirts are just unacceptable... sorry, dudes) a dressed down interpretation is with the tie-neck blouse. The tie-neck blouse is strictly for the ladies.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Jessica Alba is Gorgeous and Glam

Jessica Alba has been taking a break from the big screen lately, choosing to focus on raising her daughter and tweet about feeling fly like a G6. Yet, she is still a solid fixture in all the tabloids, because for some reason, everyone is still obsessed with the fact that celebrities procreate (and look fabulous while doing so).

8 Under $20: Sequin Overload

Here at CollegeCandy, we've sort of been obsessed with sequins lately. And why shouldn't we be? Sequins are fun, glam, and, depending on what you style them with, you can rock them day or night. And while designer sequined clothing can get pretty expensive, these pieces are all under $20!

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Selena Gomez is Subtly Sassy

I adore Selena Gomez. Her face looks as if it were lifted from a porcelain doll. Her hair is so luminous and luxurious. Her music is perfect for those times when you're dancing in front of the mirror in your PJs with your hairbrush (in contrast to those times when you're dancing in front of the mirror in your highest stilettos and a bottle of Smirnoff)

Rachel's signature style is a combination of trendy and classic. She constructs awesome outfits by mixing textures, sticking with flattering silhouettes, and choosing eye-catching accessories. And putting them all together flawlessly.

Fashion Porn: Hats & Scarves Get Down and Dirty

As temperatures start to drop, and you get to that pesky stage between needing a sweater and needing a jacket, the scarf becomes a key item to fill in. Wrap it around your neck over your favorite cardigan and you're all set to face the fall chill.

8 Under $20: Leopard Accessories

<a href="">Animal prints have been hot for the last few seasons, but leopard prints are especially huge this season. However, this trend can be tricky to pull off--too much and you'll just end up looking trashy. Or like Snooki. Or worse, Angelina.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Hilary Duff is Comfortably Chic

Remember back in 2004 when everyone (after we had pledged our allegiances to Team Jen or Team Angelina) had to choose between Team Lindsay and Team Hilary? For awhile, it seemed like Lindsay was the winner.

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: The T-Shirt Scarf

It doesn’t matter if you go to an Ivy League school or a community college, there’s one thing that all colleges have in common and that’s FREE STUFF. Namely, free t-shirts. My dresser is currently overflowing with them (of varying sizes) and there’s no need for all of that cotton getting in the way of the cashmere and the silk.

What To Get Your Brand New Valentine

So, Valentine’s Day is 2 days away. Those who are part of a steady relationship have at least been dwelling on what to do for the holiday for a little while now, but what if you’re one of the people who thought you’d be spending the holiday alone and then, miraculously, you met someone, hit it off, and now you suddenly have a last-minute Valentine?

8 Under $20: The Gap

If my dry skin and red nose tell me anything it's that the brutally cold months of winter are here. (Or that I should really invest in some moisturizer.) And they aren't going anywhere anytime soon. If you're one of the many unlucky souls trudging through the arctic tundra to get anywhere, good luck. Better start layering now, because it's gonna take awhile.

Fashion Porn: Scarf Orgy

When the weather outside gets frightful and bundling up seems quite delightful, the must-have accessory to keep you warm is a scarf. Not only perfect for keeping your neck warm (or covering up any unwanted marks left from last night), the scarf is also a chic way to add some oomph to your otherwise blah winter outfit.

Budget Stylista: The Weather Outside is Frightful, But You’ll Look So Delightful

I don't know where you were today, but in the Midwest one thing became very clear: winter is here. Yeah, seeing my breath in my apartment was a pretty good reminder that I need to stock up on gloves and scarves - uh - yesterday.
