Ugly holiday sweaters definitely have had their moment in the spotlight, but not everyone wants to flaunt that ostentatious of...

Shop Your Closet: Shawl-Collar Sweater

If you made a New Year's Resolution to wear sweatpants less, it's time to start finding alternatives that are just as easy to wear and comfortable. Not possible, you say? Well listen up, woman! That cozy, warm, comfy feeling you get with sweats can be mimicked with a warm sweater, such as a shawl-collared pullover.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Gwen Stefani is Awe-Inspiring in Animal Print

It's been awhile since Gwen Stefani reigned pop music (yet I know I'm not the only one who still gets "this shiz is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s" stuck in her head), but she definitely hasn't been slacking on being a fashion icon.

Celebrity Chic on the Cheap: Rihanna is Lovely in Layers

There's no way I could continue to write a fashion column without highlighting Rihanna. This girl is one of the most eclectic celebrities out there. One day, the paparazzi snaps photos of her in suspenders and harem pants; the next, you could easily see her in a body-contouring mini-dress with 6-inch stilettos...going out to lunch.

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)

8 Under $20: Purple Perfection

I just love purple clothing and accessories for fall. The deeper and jewel-toned shade you see in stores this time of year are flattering on everyone, and you feel instantly more sophisticated when you wear it (it is the color of royalty, after all).

Budget Stylista: Liven Up That Winter ‘Drobe

I get it. With winter carrying on for another 6 weeks your life really does feel like Groundhog Day since you wear the same thing day after day...after day: jeans and a black top, or sometimes, if you’re feeling a bit crazy, jeans and white one. After the novelty of a cute winter ‘drobe wore off (like the 2nd week of negative temps and slushy snow), it’s hard to put any effort into looking presentable and unique.

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.

Wardrobe Wishlist: JCrew Glitter Pocket Cardigan

I have officially decided my heaven will be the inside of a JCrew store…. with a scantily clad, Abercrombie model serving me mojitos. I'll be surrounded by ruffled necklines, belted cashmere pullovers, and embellished tees. And of course I will be wearing the Glitter Pocket Cardigan.

8 Under $20: American Eagle

Now that I'm back in school and broke thanks to a few trips to the bookstore, saving money is more essential than ever. But so is a brand new fall wardrobe! Luckily, American Eagle is a great stop for super comfy weekend/gym/off-to-class clothes on the cheap. There are always awesome deals to be had, and here are just a few of my favorite things.

8 Under $20: Newport News

For a long time, I thought Newport News was a total "mom store" with terribly outdated and, well, momish stuff. Then, a few months ago I noticed some of their stuff in mags like Lucky, InStyle and Glamour and realized that they actually had some super cuteness going on.

The Budget Stylista: Cardi(gan) Hardy

Last week we talked about revamping the essential cardigan from your closet and updating it. But as the old saying goes: "make new friends but keep the old." So while I'm not discouraging you from busting out that cardigan from sophomore year of high school, I'm also not your mom yelling, "You do not need and can NOT afford that new sweater, honey!"

Shopping Your Closet: Cardigans

Even though the word "cardigan" conjures up images of grandmothers, the 1950s/1960s, librarians, and overly-preppy girls, this piece does not get enough credit for being able to completely change the vibe of your outfit, no matter your sense of style.
