Finding yourself out in public looking decidedly worse for the wear and without access to your trusted array of makeup is a total nightmare. It’s hard not to panic when, say, you’re encroaching on oil slick status en route to a spur-of-the-moment party, or you’ve spotted your ex across the Starbucks line and you don’t have so much as an errant lipstick on hand. Of course, lugging around your entire face-painting collection is impractical and virtually impossible, but it’s always important to have the essentials stashed away, you know, just in case. These seven makeup bags are petite enough to fit in a satchel, but have just enough room for the basics, not to mention the tiny coordinating treats you may just want to throw in, too …

Sometimes a regular T-shirt just won’t do. You want something with a little sparkle and shine. And that’s where a beaded top comes in — it’s an easy way to take things up a notch. We’ve found nine beaded tops that are more dressy than messy (you don’t want to look like you’re a runaway show girl, do you?) Check ‘em out after the jump!
Despite my best efforts, I must own up to the fact that all I really want to wear is black jeans and loose white tank tops. You’ve witnessed my attempted (read: failed) Style Resolution and my awkwardly-posed photos in short floral skirts that just aren’t me. I’ve pretty much got a uniform, and instead of forcing myself into clothes outside of my comfort zone, isn’t there a way for me to keep things fresh while staying true to my grungy, casual roots? This is where these 10 not-so-plain white tank tops come in. Sure, they’re just… well, they’re just plain white tank tops, but their luxurious fabrics and soft, drapey fits make them the perfect layering piece (or centerpiece!) for any outfit. I’ll be pairing them with a statement necklace and a blazer or cardigan when temperatures drop.

I’m five feet tall, okay? Let’s just get it out in the open there. And while I don’t find heels to be terribly uncomfortable, I do find them to be terribly inconvenient, especially given my subway commute and my natural propensity to fall all over myself all the time. My height doesn’t particularly bother me — in fact, I forget how short I am until I’m standing next to someone who I perceive as tall, i.e. normal — but it does make me look a considerable amount younger than I am. Like … let’s say 12? Lately I’ve found myself craving a bit of height without the physical hindrances that come with a sick pair of pumps, so I’ve turned to booties with a small stacked heel to get the job done. They also hold your foot in so you’re not slipping and sliding everywhere, which is always a good thing, especially when you’re me. Whether you’re closer to my height or Iman’s, these 10 pairs will give you a bit of a boost, but are still comfortable enough to see you through the workday in style.
I’ve decided my giant hot pink L.L. Bean backpack from 5th grade will no longer be lugged around during my third year of college. The upcoming school year is begging for a new sturdy and cute bookbag, and I’ve picked the best of the best to adorn your (and my!) backside all year.
