Awesomely Affordable: 15 Items To Snatch Up From Nasty Gal

One of my favorite online shops to peruse is Nasty Gal, an LA-based e-commerce site that’s supposedly planning to open a few retail stores in the near future. The site has tons of trendy pieces, party dresses and funky accessories, much of which is under $100. Sure, some stuff that’s maybe a little skanky for everyday, but props to the woman who can rock this kiss-covered mini dress. Anyway, click on for 15 of my favorite items from Nasty Gal available right now…

Must Haves: 17 Warm & Cozy Sweater Dresses

On Tuesday, the high in New York City is going to be 12 degrees. I know some of you live in the midwest and that’s all normal and good for you, but for me, 12 degrees is CRAZY INSANE COLD. Like, that ain’t right. If I could, I would wear a snowsuit all day, but I’ve found all that excess puffiness inhibits my ability to type. Instead, I shall layer a warm sweater dress over my coziest leggings and boots and pray Mother Nature gets her shit together soon.

Sweater dresses are awesome because they are all the warmth of a sweater, BUT LONGER, and all the cuteness of a dress, BUT WARMER, perfect for layering over tights or jeans/leggings. You really need one in your closet for these godawful winter months. Here are 17 to consider.

Dog Vogue Is The Fashion Magazine I’ve Been Waiting For

Vogue never fails to make me feel fat, poor, wrinkled, and frumpy. Dog Vogue, on the other hand, makes me feel like doing a happy dance. Dog Vogue was created by photographer Sophie Gamand, who had “acclaimed pet couturier” (yes, that’s a thing) Anthony Rubio dress a group of chihuahua models in couture outfits and snapped pictures of the surprisingly elegant results. Check out all the high-fashion canine editorials at Striking Paws.

Must Haves: Sparkly, Glittery, Sequin-y Shoes To Win New Year’s Eve

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, the goal of your outfit should be to make the disco ball jealous. The more sequins, glitter, rhinestones, and sparkle, the better. Don’t stop at a sequined dress — go all out with some truly show-stopping sparkly shoes, too! Here are 10 pairs I’m currently drooling over, most of which are around $50 or less. Oh, and they’re all from Zappos, because their shipping is so scary-fast that you’ll be sure to receive your fancy footwear by NYE (I swear I wasn’t paid to say any of that, I’m just obsessed with Zappos and secretly believe they employ precogs to ship my shoes before I even order them). Anyway, click on the gallery to let the New Year’s Eve sequined shoe parade begin!

Shop The Trend: Hunter Green

There are a lot of different shades of green. I’m not sure who to credit/blame for this. Crayola? Mother Nature? Regardless, according to Wikipedia, hunter green is the color hunters used to wear during the 19th century, until “olive drab green” swooped in and stole its thunder in the 20th century. Not to worry! This darker, moodier jewel tone is gorgeous and deserves a place in your closet. Here are 10 pieces to consider…

Shop The Trend: Bright & Cool Kicks

I’ve never been a total girly-girl. For years, my personal style was pretty tomboyish: baggy pants, plain T-shirts, Doc Martens or Chuck Taylors, you get the picture. Once I moved to New York and started working in an industry that can be very image conscious, I definitely “tried on” a girlier sense of style. It took a while to figure out what I was ultimately comfortable in, but at 34, I can safely say that my sartorial instincts are a mixture of both. For example, if I’m going to wear a plaid flannel shirt, I’d ideally pair it with sky-high heels. So when I noticed a number of street style photos of super chic women pairing feminine cut pants, dresses, blouses and skirts with bright and sporty running sneakers, I was instantly intrigued. Click through my earlier Street Style Spotlight gallery for inspiration, and then check out the 10 cool sneaker options I found here…

Street Style Spotlight: 15 Ways To Sport Sneakers

Trainers. Sneakers. Tennis shoes. Whatever you call them, sporty running shoes are not just for working out. A trend I’ve noticed like crazy across street style blogs of late is super fashionable women pairing their bright and funky trainers with outfits you’d never expect. Leather pants! Girly blouses! Ladylike coats! Imagine that trend in the ’80s, where working women would wear their running shoes while commuting, only the shoes stay on all day and actually look awesome instead of frumpy. I am into this trend! And I’m sure you will be too once you’ve clicked through these street style shots for inspiration…
