Style Stealer: Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s Stripes & Skinnies

Style Stealer: Jenna Dewan-Tatum's Stripes & Skinnies

As I have mentioned a million times lately, I reallllllly miss California and am contemplating a move to Los Angeles. (Don’t worry, I’m not bailing on The Frisky — I could do my job from a yurt in the jungle, so long as there’s wifi.) Mostly I’d be going for the sunshine, the more affordable rent, the medical marijuana, the beaches and the tacos, but I also have a deep desire to dress exactly like Jenna Dewan-Tatum, above, at least 300 days out of the year. Stripes, army green skinny cargos, cool shades and flat sandals are my JAM. Get the look yourself (though, depending on where you live, you probably can’t wear this outfit every day) with the pieces listed after the jump!

The most common response I get to posts like How To Curb Your Fast Fashion Addiction (and something I struggle with myself) is how hard it can be to shop more consciously/ethically on a budget. Sometimes it seems like the there are the $10 dresses at Forever 21, the $300 handmade, indie designer dresses at upscale boutiques…and not much in between. But alternatives do exist! You just have to know where to look. In addition to responsible (and reasonably priced) brands like Karen Kane and Levi’s, Etsy is a great source for handmade items at accessible prices. Case in point: this on-trend, striped pencil skirt custom made out of soft jersey fabric to match your measurements. For about the same price as you’d pay for a mass-produced pencil skirt at Target. Now that’s compassionate fashion you and your wallet can feel good about. [$32, Inspired By Tess]

OMG I Love Your Hair: Retro Bouffant

Is there anything more glamorous than a big ol’ bouffant? Answer: no, there’s not. “I’ve gone a little crazy for this style lately,” says style blogger Samantha Harris, who created this look, “I love it because it’s so easy and also very elegant.” I second that. Check out the full photo tutorial for this beautiful bouffant, plus two more retro style how-tos for natural hair, over at Loxa Beauty.

Style Stealer: Emmy Rossum’s Matchy-Matchy Moment

Emmy Rossum Style Stealer

I’m normally very anti-matchy when it comes to fashion. I’ll take a clash over an exact color/print match any day. Even so, this Emmy Rossum ensemble, which is about as matchy-matchy as one can get, has totally stolen my heart. I love the girly accents (lace and ballet flats!) and all that mint green (or is it baby blue? or seafoam green? let’s go with minty baby seafoam blue) works so well with her heather grey skirt. Want to steal this look for yourself? Get all the matchy-matchy pieces after the jump! Keep reading »

One of the things I’m most excited about in regards to owning my own home is that I can put as many poorly planned nail holes in the wall as I want, without worrying about disapproving looks from my landlord. The walls of our current house have stayed largely empty (so depressing) because we knew we wouldn’t be here that long, didn’t want to have to hide/patch up nail holes, and for some reason those magical picture-hanging strips don’t stick to the walls here. Ugh. I can’t wait to get to our new place and finally display all the framed art that’s still tucked away in our closets. It’s gallery wall time! Here are 20 gallery walls of all different styles and setups to get the wheels of home decor inspiration turning…

Style Stealer: Taylor Swift Is All Prepped Out

Style Stealer: Taylor Swift Is All Prepped Out

Sometimes a haircut is just a haircut. But sometimes a haircut is the impetus for an entire style rejiggering of sorts, as the new ‘do becomes the centerpiece of a whole new look. I sort of think that’s what’s been happening to Taylor Swift’s fashion sense, ever since she chopped her long blonde locks into a chic bob. Taylor was always a bit of a girlie girl, but this cool crop has first brought her inner goth and now her inner prep school kid out to play. Her bright marigold shoulder bag and brownish jeans (I would call them “adobe-colored” but that seemed a little fashion-person pretentious after already using the word marigold) keep this bookish look from treading into blah territory. Also, is it just me or is Tay rocking a different part in her hair? Did she switch sides? Who does that?!  I haven’t switched my part in 15 years, seriously. SO BOLD! Applause, Taylor, applause. Anyway, get this almost-exact look for yourself with the items after the jump! Keep reading »

It is finally starting to warm up here in NYC and I personally can’t wait for the bright colors of budding spring. Tulips! Daffodils! Peonies!

Play interior decorator by mixing and matching different colors and patterns — here are some cool and colorful throw pillow options that won’t break the bank…
