Wedding Trend: 10 Gorgeous Bridal Jumpsuits

A close friend chose to wear a jumpsuit on her wedding day, and I cannot tell you how elegant she looked standing beside her husband.

Y’all know how I feel about Madewell. It’s okay. It’s not like I go into one of their stores every week, or could hold a Madewell sample sale from my own closet, or rarely go a day without wearing something with a Madewell tag on it, or could pass for a Madewell model if I…

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…
