Frisky Eats: Que-Que-Quesadillas!

You could basically put anything inside a tortilla, top it with sour cream and Tapatio, and I would eat it. And melted cheese inside? Girl. Hence my love for quesadillas, which can be stuffed with just about anything, including healthy crap for you kale and squash nuts. Here are 10 quesadilla recipes that will appeal to just about everyone.

For The Love Of Pete Campbell, What Happened To Vincent Kartheiser’s Hairline?

Vincent Kartheiser, who plays “Mad Men”‘s smarmy Pete Campbell, showed up the show’s season seven premiere with an interesting new look. Talk about committing to his craft! I’m assuming, of course, that Vincent shaved a receding hairline into his scalp (which appears to be growing out) for a role — perhaps Pete is starting to lose his hair? Maybe Vincent is playing a Hare Krishna in an upcoming film? I don’t know, but I am mesmerized. [Photos: Fame/Flynet]

Hi/Lo: Sexy Silver Shorts

Hi/Lo Silver Shorts

When I found these elegant Kate Spade shorts, I couldn’t help but swoon. Imagine sipping champagne on a yacht in these bottoms, as your tan legs stretch out lazily… OK, so that isn’t quite my life, but a girl can dream. However, I will opt to wear the more affordable MinkPink version the next time I do a beer tasting on Manhattan By Sail’s clipper.

Street Style Star Of The Week: Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift went and got herself a cool bobbed haircut with swoopy bangs and all of the sudden she’s my style muse. Maybe it’s just that her cool new cut is making me take notice of her and thus her fashion choices of late, but whatever, I am seriously coveting everything Taylor has been wearing lately. Whether she’s in head to toe black or working a touch of oxblood, lil’ Swift always looks pulled together without trying too hard. Click through for just some of the outfits she’s worn over the last week or so…

Style Stealer: Jamie Chung’s Daring Denim Jumpsuit

Style Stealer: Jamie Chung's Daring Denim Jumpsuit

There are probably, oh, 20 days out of the year where I’d wake up and think to myself, Amelia, I think you could pull of the denim jumpsuit today. In fact, I think you should pair it with kinda crazy heels and a striped cardigan and you will look FLY. (I speak to myself in the third person on those days as well.) I imagine that Jamie Chung wakes up and has the confidence to pull off this look on more days than that. But regardless of how often the urge to wear a denim jumpsuit with a grandpa cardigan and greyish pointy toed booties/pumps hits you, you need to be prepared. Get the look after the jump!

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]
