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” »

OMG. BBQ. PMS. (Or, How to Ruin Your Favorite Summer Outfit)

Oh, summer barbecues. I went to high school in Texas, the king of the backyard BBQ. But before that, I dwelled in the land of catfish fries and crawfish boils.

Both places get too hot to handle in the summer, especially when you’re afflicted with that unfriendly monthly visitor. As unpleasant as she can be during the cooler months, she’s an unimaginably cruel mistress in the season of white shorts and sweat. Continue reading “OMG. BBQ. PMS.

Fab Gift Ideas for Your BFF

Your BFF is killer. She is always available to faux-call you an emergency when you need to escape an awkward social interaction. She’s helped you with your last 3 moves and she somehow knows which ex-boyfriends not to irreparably insult so you can get back together later while maintaining dignity.

Let’s face it: she deserves a better gift than that tired don’t-we-all-love-wine greeting card stuffed with yet another low-effort department store gift certificate. Whether it’s Christmas, her birthday or your bestieversary (yes, that’s a thing), let’s get creative and give her something she’ll really love this time around (and not just fake-squee at).

The Gifts for Her section on Best Buy’s Gift Ideas page has some amazing inspiration (plus, you can shop by price point – totes necessary for beauties on a budget). Here are my faves: Continue reading “Fab Gift Ideas for Your BFF” »
