There is a catch though
How to stay trendy on a budget.
Brighter colors and shorter hemlines are finally making an appearance. With colorful wardrobes comes fun and bold jewelry to complete your fashionable looks. This week I've complied 8 accessories to add to your spring jewelry collections.
We've all been in the situation of wearing cute shoes to class and ending the day in unbearable pain with blister covered feet, have we not? I've found eight pairs of flats that are guaranteed to be cute, comfortable, and look good with your entire wardrobe. Check out my eight big campus approved shoes!
With the fall season approaching, several stores, including Topshop are putting on huge sales! Lucky for us fashionistas, we get to indulge in nicely made, name brand clothing without emptying our entire bank account! What’s not to love? I’ve scoured Topshop’s website for some of their most stylish bargains, and below I’ve featured some of their cutest items.
I don't know about you, but lately, I've been swamped with assignments and midterms. Every single time I put one textbook down, I have to pick another one up. Many people, myself included, like to study in a super comfy outfit. For some that means sweats and hoodies, but me, I love a good, bulky sweater.
Browsing through purses the other day, my eyes fell upon this adorable clutch! I instantly fell in love and knew it needed to be featured on Baggin' Out. Let me present the Topshop Heart Padded Clutch! If you're not a lover of all things cute and quirky, this may not be your favorite edition of Baggin' Out. Considered yourself warned.
I'm going to be honest with you -- my first thought after watching that Shopaholic film was 'so this means if I got a credit card, I could have amazing clothes like that too?' Definitely not the point, as every person I shared my revelation with was quick to point out. But what's a shopaholic on a limited budget to do? Figure out how to do it on the cheap!
The other day I was browsing the Topshop website and came across a dainty little number with so much potential. The Orange Cutaway Halter Dress (yeah, real original name, Topshop), is, like you guessed, an orange, halter-style dress made of flowy chiffon. Besides the knockout color, this dress also features a stunning cutout in the chest area, giving it a sexy '70s feel and a very thin break in the fabric on the back, which will be evident when you're moving around.
Blush is a makeup staple; it can help you go from drab to fab in a heartbeat. It brightens up your complexion and makes you look more alive, even after that night of dehydrating beer pong. And it's pretty hard to mess up, unless you pile it on (a la Bozo the clown). I can't just keep blabbing about how wonderful blush is, but if you don't believe me, try it for yourself.
Tweed might make you think of a stereotypical professor - the old man (who doesn't know how to use email) with elbow patches on the tweed blazer he wears every single day. Well throw this image out the window, because tweed is a gorgeous fabric that should be in every college girl's wardrobe.
Every morning when I get off the subway to go to school, I have to walk right past Forever 21. And it's torture. School been in session for three weeks now, and there has been this super hot navy lace dress (I think it’s a dress, but you never know with that store...) every time I walk by. Seeing as I don’t REALLY need another dress (remember how I bought 3 in the spring?) I’ve been trying really hard not to go in and buy it in all its gorgeous, lacy glory.
Leather is one of the biggest fabrics for fall 2010. It is also one of the easiest to embrace because EVERYTHING can be made in leather: bags, shoes, leggings, shorts, jackets, skirts...the list goes on. And I love it all. Leather is sexy. It's edgy. And it makes everything look cool.
If you haven’t caught on by now, it’s official: I’m smitten with all things military-inspired. Despite the short summer season,...
You've got your mattress cover, your mini-fridge, your XL twin sheets, and lots of garbage bags, but there is a whole category of dorm room essentials you are skipping out on. DORMWEAR. Because, if you're like me, no matter how hard you try and fight the stereotypical college student walking round in pajamas and sweats thang, there are times you will break down
One mom approved must-have for both fall and college is a chic fall jacket. The perfect fall jacket is neutral, goes with all your favorite clothes and fits just right. Not to mention, it "keeps you warm on those walks to class. You don't want to catch a cold!" (Thanks, ma.)
Plaid is one of the 10 Modern Pieces Every Girl Should Own and the plaid shirt has become a uniform for both male and female college students. It's easy to wear with jeans, super comfy, and looks good even when it's been balled up on your floor and you only have 10 minutes to make it to class.
If you've grown a bit sea sick from all the nautical-inspired clothes you've been sporting this summer, why not return to dry land and go more utilitarian with the military-inspired pieces dominating stores? These pieces have a harder look, with cargo pockets, neutral colors and grommet detailing.
One of my favorite Spring 2010 fashion shows this year was D&G with their western wear inspired collection. Being from Calgary, Alberta, home to the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth," I see a lot of western wear during the 10 days of the Calgary Stampede. And most of it is tacky, ugly and ill fitting.
With so many summer colors and patterns to choose from this year, it's hard to know what to pair them with. While you could pair the bright yellows, pretty pastels or the super popular turquoise with denim, khaki or another solid neutral, the bold black and white prints available this season are a more interesting way to go.
As the temperature starts to rise, it's time to bare those legs, soak up a little vitamin D (just make sure to wear sunscreen!), and enjoy the lovely weather. Sure, you could wear shorts, but then you gotta deal with that whole "thighs rub together and shorts ride up" situation. Plus, skirts are way more fun, and a cuter, flirtier way to show off those gams.
My inspiration for Fashion Porn can come from anywhere. (OK, anywhere except actual porn. Have you seen what those people wear?!) Last week, for example, it came from kicking off my third summer in a row by donning a cowboy hat for a week. And this week I'm feeling inspired by none other than Ms. Sarah Jessica Parker and that gorgeous yellow Valentino dress she wore for the Sex And The City 2 premiere.
Chances are you're seeing the light at the end of the cold month tunnel and feeling ready to bare those legs again. While dresses and skirts are the obvious way to show some leg, their counterparts, rompers and shorts, are another equally adorable option. A much more practical option, I might add, as they won't blow up when a lovely spring breeze blows through.
With the end (fingers crossed) of the rain and the new May flowers that follow, what better way to celebrate it finally feeling like spring than with a dress! This year, there are so many adorable spring dresses to choose from that's it's hard to pick! (I just bought three...I have a problem.)
Pastels reminiscent of the colors of everyone's favorite chocolate Easter treat have made their way onto store shelves and I am excited! Pale blues, pinks, yellows, greens, etc. have a way of lifting the spirits, like a warm spring breeze or the smell of flowers on your way to class.
There really is a pattern and a print for everyone. The only problem is, with so many options this season, how do you choose? Don't! Stock up on a wide variety of patterns and prints for a bright and fun spring/summer wardrobe.
I love rain boots a little more than anyone my age probably should. However, I feel this love is justified - on top of being SUPER adorable, wellies also keep your feet dry, making them practical as well. Over the last few years, retailers have rolled out all sorts of fun, bright-colored, patterned boots for you to go dancing in the rain.
The countdown to spring continues. Only three (fingers crossed) more weeks to go! As my school's spring break was last week, I am currently enviously admiring the tans of my classmates lucky enough to flee warmer weather. With most American schools still weeks away from break, now is the time to start thinking about what to wear.
• Charlie Sheen's goin back to rehab. Again. • Would you wear tiger print? • Adrian Grenier's got no game. • Paula Abdul proves that ANYONE can get a job. • Topshop attempts to bring back the unibrow? • Get the no-makeup makeup look.
The '90s have made a comeback. No, MC Hammer won't be kicking off an international tour any time soon, but chambray is sweeping the globe.
There are a few basic items that every girl should have in her closet. A pair of Alexander McQueen alien...
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.
