It’s true what they say: women always be shopping. I can be home sick, in bed late at night, with 7,000 things to do, and I will still have one browser window open to eBay or ASOS.

That’s why we’ve culled together this list of 28 tips that will help you get the best stuff at the best prices — and not just cool stuff, but items you’ll actually wear. So take a look at our tips, and share your own in the comments. Keep reading »

Jeans are the keystone around which the rest of my wardrobe revolves. Sure, they’re not exactly trendy or adventurous, but they are definitely cool, comfortable, and the easiest thing to throw on in any given morning. The perfect pair can make you look like a supercharged version of yourself — taller, thinner, more stylish, even smarter! We may have left our printed jeans back in summer storage, but that doesn’t mean we’ve resigned ourselves to the faded old stalwarts: coated, or waxed, denim not only provides a sleek substitute to the black and blue variety, but the thicker, more substantial fabric makes it perfect for the cooler seasons upon us. We took the guesswork out of what to wear with your new favorite pair of jeans by putting together three different looks, after the jump … Keep reading »

This weekend I was wandering around one of my favorite stores when I spotted a sliver of blue plaid fabric peeking out from the crowded rack of dresses. Blue is my favorite color, and plaid is my favorite pattern, so I was immediately intrigued.

When I reached into the mass of hangers and pulled out the mysterious dress, there is a good chance I audibly gasped. It was lined in silk, with a cutout in the back, a sweetheart neckline, and a flowing hourglass shape. It was surprisingly formal, but the plaid fabric made it feel playful and fun. It was unique without trying too hard. It was, quite possibly, the most beautiful dress I’d ever seen. “I would pay $200 for a dress like this,” I thought, flipping over the price tag to reveal numerous crossed-out sale prices making their way toward a grand total of $39.97.
