Forget Gigi: Let’s Talk About Bella Hadid

Everyone is up in arms about Gigi Hadid lately – she’s got that California girl thing down. And you know her mom (also a former model) Yolanda Foster from The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But have you seen her sister Bella?

Bella is a model herself (above for ELLE Magazine), and possesses all of her sister’s beauty, but with a very different appeal. Here she is walking the runway for Desigual: Continue reading “Forget Gigi: Let’s Talk About Bella Hadid” »

Are You A Sassinista?

In my tenure running SassyDove.com, I’ve had the greatest experience I could ever call a “job” in my life. I can’t believe I make money on a daily basis being creative, writing about what I actually think, using the Internet, trying my favorite products, and having fun, fashionable adventures. No two days are the same. I’m incredibly blessed.

The most amazing blessing of all, though, is the community of smart, funny, likeminded chicks who frequent this site. It’s amazing how well you all represent the exact image I had in my head for Sassy Dove’s prototypical reader: the “sassinista”, if you will. Continue reading “Are You A Sassinista?” »

The Ultimate Fashion Week Trend: Being Comfy. #BringComfyBack

dior-cruise-2015 fashion comfy
Dior Cruise 2015 – A scarf as pants is pretty much as comfy as it gets.

New York Fashion Week officially kicks off September 10, and between all the carwash pleats I’m noticing a promising trend among the trends: being comfy.

From “athleisure” (even T. Swift wore it to the VMAs) to all the wedge-and-chunky-heel action floating around these days, comfort is back in style. (And may I say along with all the other girls who have tromped from show to show in impossible 5-inch heels – THANK GOD!)

Here are some tips for staying fashionably comfy this NYFW 2015 season: Continue reading “The Ultimate Fashion Week Trend: Being Comfy. #BringComfyBack” »

Miley’s 2015 MTV VMAs Fashion + Beauty Rundown

Yesterday, we remembered Miley’s VMA past and wondered what 2015 would hold. Now we know.

First there was whatever this is on the red carpet:

Miley Cyrus MTV VMA Awards 2015 Red CarpetObviously since Miley’s hosting, she’s paying a little homage to the Moon Man himself in this set of silver suspenders and a bejeweled skirt (made of only jewels, because actual fabric covered genitalia is so last year) by Atelier Versace, accented with a pair of space-stripper knee-high boots.

Beauty: a super-long set of blonde dread extensions worn in a high ponytail, a bright-blue smoky eye and a red lip. Spoiler: the Saved By the Bell-meets-Bob Marley high ponydreads will be her choice for hair looks this evening. (Can you say “Pony Dreadful”?!)

It only gets weirder (and arguably worse) from there – here are all of her outfit choices throughout the evening: Continue reading “Miley’s 2015 MTV VMAs Fashion + Beauty Rundown” »

#SearsStyleFinds: Slam Dunk Back-to-School Trends Girls Will Love


This post is sponsored by Sears.

My favorite part of going back to school was always back-to-school shopping. Who doesn’t want a yearly excuse for a whole new wardrobe?

Unfortunately, it’s tough for those of us who’ve left our school days to accurately predict what our middle schoolers will look trendy in and what will get them booted from the cool kids’ table at lunch. Do we really have to spend a fortune on clothes they’ll grow out of (or ruin) by Winter Formal?

The answer: no way! Stylish options are abundant—and affordable—at Sears. If you haven’t been in recently, stop by the retailer and check out their fab new options in Juniors. Their newest Bongo Girl: Peyton List—further proof that they are on-trend with tweens, since she always looks perfectly styled and fashion-forward.

Here are some of our favorites, found at Sears, which helped me stay on the side of trendsetting, not trend regretting. Check out each of our styles below: Continue reading “#SearsStyleFinds: Slam Dunk Back-to-School Trends Girls Will Love” »
