Budget Stylista: A New Take On Stripes

Everyone loves stripes. If you don't, you're a psycho or you just haven't seen the light yet. Fret not friends because I am here to show you said light. Stripes are fabulous in a sweater a la Les Francais, or to spice up a favorite body-con skirt.

Budget Stylista: Seeing Spots

Lucky for people like myself with an eternal love for polka dots, designer heavy weights such as Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney had us seeing spots for their F/W 2011 collections. Yes ma'am, the polka dot is big (but not literally) this season.

8 Under $20: Stripes

I love stripes. I seriously own about 5 different striped tops, from tanks to sweaters to blouses, and I'd probably wear them every day if I didn't get major pit stains all the time could! Stripes are not only cute and fun, but they're super versatile, too!

5 Spring Trends I Have to Have

The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. And I'm finally able to put the big winter coat away. It’s time for iced caramel macchiatos and driving with the windows open and the music blasting. It’s time for spring. Well…almost. For me it won’t quite be spring until I’ve done my spring shopping.

Fashion Porn: Pretty in Prints

I love me a bold print, so I'm shakin' in my leopard maxi dress over the variety of fabulous prints coming at us this spring (if it ever comes). There are so many prints to choose from: animal prints, prints of animals, florals, abstract, paisley, tribal, stripes, polka dots and any other design you could possibly imagine.

Fashion Porn: Navy Orgy

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.

From CollegeFashion: 4 Ways to Wear Stripes This Season

Stripes can be intimidating. They’re bold, they’re brazen and they can be a little difficult to wear. Some people fear that horizontal stripes make you look wider (totally not true!!) and they can be a little too bold for the wallflowers among us. So it’s understandable that some would be hesitant about them.

Shop Your Closet: The Striped Tank

As the temperatures stop, drop, and roll (or just drop), we must say goodbye to our favorite summer styles in favor of warmer options. And it's depressing. Not because we don't love fall (because, DUH, we do), but because it's hard to part with best friends and that perfectly worn-in tank, that's been with you through everything, is the best friend of all.

Fashion Porn: Stripe Orgy

This year's fashion trends range from the ranch to the yacht, and stripes are one of the perfect ways to look seaworthy this summer.

Budget Stylista: Ahoy Matey!

I LOVE the nautical “I’m on a boat” look. Almost as much as I love that song. There is just something about red, navy and white that screams summer chic. Give me an excuse to add yellow and/or gold as a compliment and I’m practically drooling. On a boat.

Fashion Porn: Nautical Orgy

According to reliable sources - namely, Punxsatawney Phil - there are still six weeks left of winter. That's six more weeks of singing the winter blues as we trek to class in our layers upon layers trying to avoid frostbite while still looking cute.

I Love Your Style: Edie Sedgwick

Edie Sedgwick, best known for being one of Andy Warhol's muses, is my muse for this week. In addition to being a quadruple threat (actress, model, heiress and socialite), she was also known to be a major style icon. Although she is no longer with us today, her style still continues to appear as fashion inspiration from runways to sidewalks.

8 Under $20: Tilly’s

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.
