Campus Couture: Tatomme from Ryerson

Allow me to introduce you to Tatomme, probably the only girl I've ever met who can truly pull off a chambray jumper. And by "pull off" I mean "work it like she's got Rachael Zoe dressing her and she's walkin' down a runway." I just met her this semester, and I was instantly impressed with her style.

I Love Your Style: Chloe Sevigny

Describing Chloe Sevigny's style in one word would be like attempting to describe color to a blind man: Impossible. She is a wild child with a wild style. It's vintage-meets-designer, quirky, eccentric and European chic with just the perfect hint of grunge. It doesn't sound like it would turn out well, but somehow Chloe works it.

Campus Couture: Taylor, Ryerson

I met Taylor a year ago and after attending a university where everyone showed up to class in their sweats or PJ pants, her look was a breath of fresh air. Her style is a unique blend of thrifted and vintage with new basic pieces, and a collection of accessories that add perfectly to every outfit.

8 Under $20: Hair Accessories

Though grossly under-rated, hair accessories might be one of the best ways to spice up an outfit and add a special flair. Cheaper than a hot pair of shoes and more practical than a bunch of bangles, headbands and hairpins do double duty: they accessorize and pull that hair out of your face.

The Secret Designers of Etsy.com

Miss Nordstrom had swindled me into signing up for the real deal. Luckily, I only charged a good $110 to my new card (that's sarcasm), however, in an effort to ensure that I never get myself into this kind of debt debacle again, I decided to stick to buying from people who understand what it means to be a struggling artist. So, I turned to the online shopping portal Etsy – my favorite place to spend time (& cash) on the internet.

From StyleHive: Vintage Fashionistas Embrace “Mad Men” Style

Once upon a time, women sat around on Sunday nights sipping cocktails and tuning in to their favorite fashion friends on Sex and the City. But whether you were more of a Samantha or a Carrie type doesn't matter anymore because there's a whole new gang of girls in town. The new fashionistas to watch are the girls of the hit series Mad Men.

Day-to-Night Styler: Turn Back Time

Vintage/vintage-inspired fashion is a great way to add a fun flair to the every day. Why wear a simple cotton dress when you can easily bring a unique retro look into the mix? I'm all about playing with fashion, so this week's Day-to-Night Styler is taking a trip down memory lane. I found a darling 50's style dress that can smoothly transition from day to night and look totally bangin' wherever you decide to wear it.

Sneak Peek of Target’s New Tracy Feith GO International Line!

I've loved Target and their super-cheap prices since... well, pretty much forever. I know I'm not the only one who goes in there to buy toilet paper only to come out with 4 bags of stuff. Or to make the excuse of buying toilet paper so I can shop the cute accessories in the front of the store...

Thrift Shopping: How to Spot the Real Deal

Ever since I was given a fistful of dollars and a ride to the mall to buy my own school clothes, I was a thrifty shopper. I liked the new stuff too, but once I discovered that, by looking in the right places, I could find better quality things for WAY less money, I was hooked, and thrift stores became my new shopping mall.
