Okay, before you throw your Choo Steve Madden heel at me, give me a chance. I know "adding sparkle" to your wardrobe sounds like some weird thing Carrie Bradshaw/one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta would do, but trust me: adding a little bling to your wardrobe is the best way to beat the cold-weather fashion blahs.
New Year's Eve is hands down the best excuse to dress up. But that doesn't mean you gotta splurge on some hot frock that will look great in pictures, but not so great sitting in the back of your closet for the next 2 years because you have nowhere to wear it again.
Enter from stage left: the best new hairspray ever from beauty giant, L'Oreal. Apparently Europe has been in The Know on this stuff for years, but some ingredient made it illegal to sell in the U.S. Not anymore! With a new formula this bad boy is on shelves nationwide and, thanks to me putting you in The Know, it will be flying off said shelves quite soon.
So Hanukkah begins on Friday and Christmas is 17 days away, which means it's time for holiday parties, dinners, and gatherings of family and friends. And that means you'll need some super cute looks to show off.
We all know that NYE is the most over-hyped, overpriced, overdressed night of the year. While we are stressed figuring out what slutty halloween costume to wear, we also have to stress over where to go 2 months later. I swear every year two things happen: Christmas music and New Year's Eve plans come earlier and earlier. And frankly I'm not a fan of either.
...or Hanukkah...or Kwanzaa....or just because. Yes, it's holiday season, which means it's time to print out that list of wants you've been keeping all year and hand it over to mama so she can make all your dreams come true. We all know this time of year should be all about the giving, but we can admit that getting feels really freaking awesome, too.
With Thanksgiving around the corner (I say this with giddiness…pumpkin pie, football, sleeping all day anyone?) the Holiday Season is about to hit full force. Which means my search for the perfect holiday outfit is officially on. The fact that I spend way too much time shopping online means that, of course, I have already found the perfect piece to jump-start this outfit:
If your fall look is a little under the weather, check out my remedy for an effortless and chic way to survive the season without having to shop for a whole new look. Simply buy an item from the following six categories and you'll be ready to face the fall in style. And the best part is, you don't need to blow your budget; most pieces are under a $100.
Let's cut to the chase. In a short 5 days you will be back home and surrounded by every category of person to ever cross your path. Ever. In your life. The people you never really talked to, but now feel obligated to acknowledge and chat with. The people you didn't like then and surley don't like now. The girls who were bitches to you (and now, because of your cool job, want to kiss your ass)...
This season (as we pointed out yesterday) sequins is everywhere and if you haven't gotten in on the trend yet, try it on for size. It's intimidating on the hanger - maybe even ugly - but once you bathe yourself in the glitz that you used to only use for art projects in 2nd grade, you will never want to go back!
With the world premiere of This is It and recent trips to costume shops, I've got Michael Jackson on the brain. And when it comes to the King of Pop's style, one thing stands out: that single, sparkly glove. While donning a sequined glove is a very literal way to pay tribute to MJ (not to mention impractical - won't your other hand get cold?), sequins are EVERYWHERE this year.
If my new obsession with Old Soul New Heart taught you anything, it's that accessories can make an outfit.And here's another thing I'm about to teach you, so take note: if you want to stand out in a crowd wear a hat. Every time I go out on a weekend in a beret EVERYONE comments.
I have to admit – it’s becoming somewhat painful to watch Project Runway this season and find things to write about. Unlike seasons past where designers say and do funny things beyond whipping up runway looks, all things more than worthy of writing about, this season is a whole lot of blah. And it’s impossible to write about blah.
