Peppered throughout magazines and blog sites are optimistic articles about delicious summer activities and fashion trends to anticipate and enjoy. However, there is one thing about summer that is so heinous and disgusting that I feel I must warn the masses before it destroys them: flip-flops, fashion’s Anti-Christ.
I'll admit, a few years ago when leggings came back in style, I thought there was no way I'd wear them. In fact, I told everyone I knew that I'd rather "walk around pants-less than try and pass off some leggings as pants." Obviously, I've since eaten my words.
It's time to man up, ladies, and empower yourselves to live life without the aid of Prince Charming. Not only does this make our lives a whole lot easier (hello, do you really want to wait around for someone to jump-start your car?), but sometimes it's safer to take matters into our own hands (instead of asking some rando to do it for us).
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.
The Golden Globes are coming, which means the hottest of the hottest will be strutting their bad selves down the Red Carpet to talk to Ryan Seacrest and look damn fine doin' it. And I'll be sitting there, laptop in hand, taking notes - the kind I should be taking in class - on what everyone is wearing.
Hard to believe that in only 2 days we'll be ringing in the new year and it'll have been a decade since all that Y2K mumbo jumbo. I know; that whole "only 2 days" thing freaked me out, too. Not because I'm not ready for 2010, but because I'm not ready for NYE.
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.
I'm pretty sure there is nothing better in life than a really fantastic sale section. Especially at a store stocked with things you already love. Take home some awesome finds on the cheap? Yes please! Much like Urban Outfitters and Express, Tilly's is chock full of really cute stuff at a somewhat "affordable" price. But it is in their fabulous sale section where you really hit the fashion jackpot.
I would put money on it that every college girl has at least one pair of high heels stuffed into their tiny dorm room closet (or if you're like me, you have 12 and they are strewn all over your floor where you kicked them off after a long and painful night). They are pretty much a staple of every woman’s wardrobe, especially us college girls who need to look sexy every weekend (isn’t college life so demanding?).
So as I write this, I'm sitting on my lanai (balcony) overlooking the beautiful, blue Maui ocean (yes, I'm on my first "real" vacay in years), which means I'm not particularly keen on scouring the internet for under $20 deals for long periods of time (not to mention, they're only giving me an hour of free wifi). So where did I head? The mother of all cheap & trendy spots: Forever 21.
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”?
Are you sick of waking up in the morning with black feet/someone else's chewed up gum between your toes? Perhaps you should invest in a pair of Fit In Clouds fold-up flats.
Sexy pumps: every girl's necessity for a fabulous night out. Yes, they will probably definitely kill your feet and you'll be walking back from the party in flip flops (or barefoot!), but they're hard to resist because they look so.frickin.good. Sick of typical stilettos but want to add some height? Look no further than the Sarkia Pump by Calvin Klein.
