Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Sophia Bush is Sexy in Sequins

I'll always have a soft spot for Sophia Bush because one of my favorite ways to waste time is to have a One Tree Hill marathon, and Brooke Davis consistently speaks to my soul. Sophia's personal style is just as great as her character's. She generally sticks to a low-key, slightly edgy, feminine aesthetic, with a lot of black, lace, sequins, and classic patterns.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Nicole Richie is a Trendy Babe

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.

One of the hottest colors for 2011, whether it's for fashion or home decor, is navy. With the popularity of nautical inspired pieces the last few seasons, there's a good chance you already own something in this dark shade of blue.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Blake Lively is Sultry in Sequins

I have such a girl crush on Blake Lively and her sense of fashion it's borderline unhealthy. She possesses an incredibly eclectic style that is grounded in a love of all colors, combining different textures, and emphasizing her 10 feet long stems and fabulous cleavage.

Wardrobe Wish List: Leg Avenue Silver Glitter Peep Toe Pumps

Which is more irrational: the decision to wear 5-inch heels in the snow, slush and ice, or that slinky top without a coat because you don’t want to hold one at the party? The bigger question is: who cares? Because frostbite doesn't hurt so much after you've had a couple cocktails, right?

Shop Your Closet: Back to Basics for NYE

Forget battling the crowds at the mall or spending oodles of money on something you'll most likely only wear once (either because it's too fancy for any other occasion or ruined when your friend spills her vodka cran down the front); all you need for the perfect New Year's look is a little creativity and all those basics you've got stuffed into drawers.

Budget Stylista: New Year’s Eve

It feels like yesterday that we woke up, blurred eyed and fuzzed headed, welcoming in 2010. But here we are again, New Year's Eve. The one night of the year it's perfectly acceptable to kiss everybody in sight at midnight and drink your body weight in champagne. It's also the one night of the year when it's totally fine to wear more sequins that a drag queen.

Let's face it, ladies: while high heels are sexy and a definite must-have for every wardrobe, the bottom line is they hurt. A lot. Even if you deal with the pain of heels most of the time, sometimes your poor, little, ailing feet just need a break.

Budget Stylista: Sequins for All Occasions

Ladies, fashion can be complicated. With magazines, catalogs and store displays making it look effortless, you think, “I can rock that style; that can be ME!!" So you go in, flip through the racks, and see the price for the military look is way beyond your price range. You buy just the jacket.
