Style Stealer: Emma Roberts’ Red Lace Dress For Less Than $100

I fell instantly in love with this red lace dress Emma Roberts wore to a party in Beverly Hills. It’s fun, flattering, and since I’m going through a red period right now (not as menstrual as it sounds), I’m especially taken with the color. Emma’s dress is by Style Stalker and costs $189, which is practically free in celebrity money, but still about double what I usually spend on a dress. I dug up three other pretty red lace dresses for $70 or less, from size 3 to 2X. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Cute & Casual Plus-Size Dresses

I have no idea why, but I’ve noticed that “casual” plus-size dresses are often, well, not that casual. And while I’m really glad designers are making gorgeous silk sheaths in larger sizes, what are curvy girls supposed to wear out to brunch? Or to the library? Or the farmers’ market? Or, like, mini golfing? To solve this conundrum, I tracked down 10 plus-size dresses that are really, truly casual and really, truly cute. Click through to the gallery to check ‘em out!

ModCloth is now selling The Cheryl Dress, a garment named after the current recipient of my fangirl writer worship, Cheryl Strayed. “This sleek frock is perfect for a confident, successful woman like you, who has found wisdom in the journey and not the destination,” says the item description.

Or as Sugar, Cheryl Strayed’s advice-giving alter ego would put it, this dress is for the woman who wants to dress like a motherfucker.

I don’t know if you could wear this one for Pacific Crest Trail hike, but it’s certainly a tiny beautiful thing you could add to your wardrobe for the super affordable price of $49.99.

Non-Sequitur: I think having a dress named after you means you’ve made it in life. Or maybe a sandwich. New goal. [ModCloth]

Must Haves: 10 Tip-Top Tulip Dresses

Nope, the name Tulip dress doesn’t refer to the pattern — it’s actually a reference to the shape of the skirt, which flares out and then comes back in at the hem, mimicking the shape of a tulip. This style is great for girls who are lacking in the hip department, and they provide a flattering alternative to a typical fit-and-flare skirt style.

We’ve picked out 10 tulip skirt dresses we think are extra cute. Click on through to check ‘em out!

One Dress, Worn Three Ways

You know how it is — you get all excited about a dress, but then it sits in your closet and basically rots while you figure out how to wear it. This happens to me all the time. But never fear, we’ve got a plan to help you make the most out of what you’ve got. I like to buy rather basic dresses, so they can be worn fancy or casual, depending on your mood and desires. And for this experiment, I’ve picked a pretty plain A-line blue dress (blue is the new black, after all). Keep reading »

Must Haves: 10 Dresses & Shirts For Big-Breasted Ladies

Big Boobs Rule!
Why big boobs are awesome -- and why they're not. Read More »

As a small-boobed lady, I admit that I can sometimes be a bit ignorant about the difficulties and particularities of being a big-titted woman. I hardly ever wear bras even, because they are just not necessary. But for women who possess rather large boobies, finding fashion can be near impossible. Enter Saint Bustier, an online clothing retailer referred to us by the inimitable writer Caitlin Moran. Saint Bustier provides a vast array of impeccably tailored, classy clothing for women with larger breasts. Sure, some of it is on the incredibly pricey side, but finding a garment that really suits the girls is well worth the investment, we think.
