Comfy But Stylish Outfits: 3 Alternatives to UGGs, Leggings and a North Face

In the colder months, all I want to do is roll out of bed, take my blankets with me and sit in class with a cup of hot chocolate. The closest thing to my pjs would probably be leggings, a hoody and some Ugg boots, as they definitely offer the most comfort, but I love fashion, and I'm a firm believer that you can have comfort and style at the same time.

Embracing the SpiritHoods Trend: Yay or Nay?

I think the SpiritHoods trend/discussion started with Ke$ha and the hate just kind of escalated from there. With the right outfit, however, I think SpiritHoods are totally badass!

25 Reasons To Love Winter [Photos]

Winter gets a bad rap. Granted it does have its flaws: blizzards, Uggs, perpetual runny noses, and pale skin complexions. These negatives aside, there are so many wonderful wonders to winter: pets in sweaters, hot chocolate, Christmas trees, Hanukah bushes, and many, many other holiday treats!

UGG Alternatives: 10 Boots That Are Actually Cool

I've decided to counter these hideous slippers (yea guys, they're slippers not boots) with 10 boots for under $200. Today's retail price of a pair of UGGs is between $150-$180 (for the traditional UGG Australia brand UGGs), so it's not like I'm asking you to hand over a ton more cash than you already would have.

10 Winter Coat Alternatives to the (Predictable) North Face

When winter hits and turns us all into grumpy, snow-man looking students, know you have an alternative to the traditional college girl uniform -- North Face fleece, Uggs, leggings, ear muffs, fuzzy gloves, and frozen tears. You know what I'm talking about.

Current Trends Our Kids Will Look Back On and Laugh

It's always a treat to find some hidden treasure in the back of your mom's closet. What's (arguably) better is finding old photos that make you stop and ask, "you seriously wore that?!" Believe it or not, your daughter will one day be asking you the same thing. Here's what I think she'll be pointing to...

The Weekly Ten: High School Fashion Mistakes

So I was flipping through some old Facebook albums the other day (you know the ones people label THROWBACKS! OLDSCHOOL! And OMG WHAT WAS I THINKING!!!! ) when in between fits of hysterical laughter, I started to catch sight of what I actually looked like. And all I can say is, seriously? I mean, seriously? I know I was young and naïve, but I don’t remember being that naïve.

Are You Unsafe in Your Uggs?

Your favorite pair of shoes might be wreaking havoc on your body, and you don't even know it. If you're anything like me, you live in your UGGs once fall rolls around and don't stop wearing them until skirt season shows up on the calendar.

From CollegeFashion: Stylish Winter Boots For Snow, Slush and Ice

For girls who live or go to school in snowy states, winter provides some unique fashion challenges. One of the biggest dilemmas we face has got to be finding fashionable footwear that keeps us toasty, dry, and slip-free.

Wardrobe Wish List: Sperry Top-Sider Bayshore Tall Boot [Plus a Giveaway!]

I’ll never forget the year that Uggs first became popular, also known as the year that everyone on campus started to look like the science school had cloned humans. Maybe you remember the trend from bottom to top: It started with the tan (salt-stained) Uggs, and the black leggings, and the oversized shirt-dress.

The Post-Grad Journey: Keeping In Touch

College introduced me to my best friends (who ended up not being my best friends senior year, but oh well), girls that compulsively wore Uggs and North Face jackets to class, stereotypes unknown in high school (hello frat boys), frenemes, coffee buddies, and classroom peers, and a few boys I wish I never met.

The Weekly Ten: Worst Fall Fashion Trends

he first day of fall came only a week ago and I've already stuffed all my shorts into a duffel and shoved them under my bed. Nothing, I tell you, nothing (okay, other than Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes), is more enticing about fall than the clothing choices. I mean, where to start?

The Weekly Ten: The Fads We Miss (Or Maybe Not)

Oh the 1990s/2000s. It feels as if they were just a couple years ago. Well, I guess they were. Still, that doesn't mean that we can't reminisce about the things we loved and so desperately wish we were allowed to embrace today. I love my Yorkie, but she is definitely no "Puppy Surprise."

Life After College: Making Sacrifices

Being an adult means making a lot of sacrifices. It's about saying no to a dinner party because you can't afford to bring more than stale bread ends. It's about turning down movie offers because it costs 5 billion dollars to buy a ticket in NYC (and god forbid you want to see IMAX...bye bye, life savings!).

Wardrobe Wish List: Sorel Caribou Boots

Those of us east coasters lugging our duffels and a month’s worth of mom's cooking back to school have the added joy of doing it in below freezing temperatures. I’ve feared losing some toes to frostbite one too many times in the past couple of weeks and it has left me scolding my Uggs for not being able to keep out the frigid air.
