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.

We’ve All Been There: The Winter Walk To Class

Your alarm goes off and before you even get out of bed, the winter chill hits you. It’s gonna be a cold day, which is great since you have 4 classes and a meeting. You pull back the covers and jump out of bed. Holy hell it's cold. You curse your state. You curse your old house and it's terrible heater. You curse your stupid choice to pick a school not in the Caribbean

Winter: A Love/ Hate Relationship

About mid-July, after a month and a half of sweating my makeup off and having my thighs chafe in my shorts, I am begging Mother Nature to let winter come. When winter finally arrives, I'm happy as a clam. I’m looking forward to a solid three months of bundling up, celebrating holidays and the crisp winter air that comes with the drop in temperature.

The Weekly Ten: Not Giving Thanks

This week, in light of the upcoming treasured holiday, I started thinking about all the things in my life that I have to be thankful for: my family, the boy, YSL lipstick and, of course, the inevitable huge delicious meal my mama's going to prepare this week. But that's all kinda boring. I mean, who isn't thankful for family? So instead, I decided to count down the 10 things I'm un-thankful for this holiday season.

Hot Accessories for a Cold Winter

This fall weather is quickly beginning to feel a lot like winter. Sweaters and tights are being traded in for winter fleeces and long-johns. You may think you're good to go with your new crochet Uggs and long, puffy North Face jacket, but there's a lot more out there this winter when it comes to accessories.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: This Season’s Fashion Must-Haves

One of the best things about fall (besides Halloween, candy corn, pumpkin everything, Honeycrisp apples, etc.) is switching up your wardrobe. If you live in a colder climate like me, each October you yank your tanks and dresses from your closet (shed a few tears) and swap 'em out for the sweaters and boots stuffed under your bed.

Wardrobe Wish List: Free People Seracina Tiger Lace Dress

While many girls consider winter wear to be a pair of Uggs and some cashmere sweaters, I go about the fall/winter wardrobe a tad differently. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love both of these things, but my fall shopping is fueled by an unhealthy obsession with the mini-dress-tights-boots combo. So it’s no surprise that what I am craving right now is - you guessed it - a mini dress.

From StyleBakery: Shoes To Wear To Class

Let's face it: Those UGGs aren't earning you any style points, but you wear them anyway because they are comfy and they match everything. There are other footwear choices out there that are wearable, warm, and WAY cuter.

8 Under $20: Wal-Mart

I've known for years that Wal-Mart was a great place to go to get cheap snacks, toiletries, electronics, etc., but I never thought I'd buy clothes there. There is only one big-box store whose dressing rooms I'll enter and that is Tarjay. There is no way any K-Mart, Wal-mart, or any other mart could produce fashion that would catch my eye.

The CC Weekly Weigh In: The Downsides of College

After drowning my sorrows in 3 shots of tequila last night, my friends yelled at me to snap out of it. "You're out of college, woman. GET OVER IT." But how? How am I supposed to move on from the best 4.5 years of my life (of which, I an only really remember 2.25)? By focusing on all the downsides, of course!

The CC Weekly Weigh In: Hellooooo, Fall!

With Labor Day just around the corner, it's time to say goodbye to our white sundresses and helloooooo (nurse) to leather boots, college football and Pumpkin Spice lattes at Starbucks. (Note: I said hello to those twice...on Monday.) Oh yeah, and also to long nights in the library, 40 pounds of textbooks and early classes. But let's ignore that stuff and celebrate the best season ever.

Prop 8 and Five Other Reasons California Sucks

California has always been my dream place to live with its warm weather, hot surfer dudes and that laid back, livin the life attitude. But as of today, my view on the seemingly perfect Cali location has truly changed. Thanks to the really messed up California Supreme Court Prop 8 decision banning same sex marriages, I started to realize the truth behind all that sunshine.
