The Inspiration Board: Vanessa Hudgens’ Sunny Day Wear

Good thing Vanessa Hudgens' Kool-Aid smile didn't blind us from peeping her perfect sunny day outfit. She managed to go boho, laid-back, and luxe with this cohesive look. We just had to come up with our own version. Find the buying info below -- now that's something to grin about. 1. Aqua Floppy Hat…

A Stylish Necklace That Opens Bottles

Warm weather is imminent, we swear, and with it comes one of our favorite pastimes: backyard barbecues. If you're playing host (or want to be a helpful guest), don't make everyone search the area -- or run inside -- for a bottle opener each time they need a new drink. Instead, when you put o…

I Hate Dressing For This Time Of Year

As much as I've been dying to shed some layers, put away my fabulous vintage red coat, and step out in some killer open-toe shoes, I realize that I hate dressing for this time of year. It's like relearning how to dress warm and cool at the same time, while also making sure you…

This Is The Same Dress?! Why Shopping Online Is So Difficult

A couple weeks ago, JCPenney presented its spring and summer clothes at a fashion show, and after seeing a ruffled pink dress with an expensive Lanvin feel, I thought, "I must have that!" But when I looked at the Allen B. by Allen Schwartz dress on JCPenney's website (on sale for $49.99),…

Crocs We Can Actually See Ourselves Wearing

I may be the most anti-Crocs person you'll ever meet. So many people wear them -- swear by them, even -- but I just can't get behind something functional yet, well, ugly. However, I just took a look at the rubber shoe brand's new designs, and the appropriately named Lady slingback isn't…

Skip The Jacket & Opt For A Button-Down Like Sienna Miller

You might have thrown your coat in the closet as soon as the temperature went above 50 degrees, but it's still not exactly warm outside. We don't want you to get a cold, so if you absolutely refuse to wear a jacket, make like Sienna Miller and throw a button-down on top of whatever…

An In-Between-Seasons Scarf

It's around this time of year that a mildly warm day somehow causes people to forget the fact that it's still cold outside. But we applaud you for making that ambitious effort when you stepped out in just a blazer, and proceeded to shiver your way to work. Still, we get that you're ready to…

Get Your Chambray On

For us, browsing Delia's is like looking through a window into our teenage pasts. Remember the joyful day, once a month, when the new Delia's catalog would arrive in the mail, and you'd carefully circle items and dog-ear pages? Those days may be long gone, but we still get kicks out of browsing the teen-tastic…

Lust-Worthy Loft Drawstring Anorak

It's not even February yet and we're already thinking about spring, big time. One of our favorite aspects of changing seasons is finding a new jacket to complement our new fashion outlook, but we hate having to wait to wear said acquisition. This Loft Drawstring Anorak has a wear-it-now/wear-it-later vibe, so it won't hang i…

Spring Style: Jeggings And Harem Pants Are Here To Stay

It looks like some of the most criticized trends of fall—jeggings and harem pants—are sticking around this spring for another go. Browsing through new merchandise on some of our favorite retailers, we noticed that these styles were widely available, and, in some cases, more prevalent than before. As for harem pants, we assume…

Gimme, Gimme Twelve By Twelve

Forever 21 has unveiled the new arrivals to the Twelve by Twelve line, and we're totally smitten. Maybe it's the styling. Maybe it's the fact that model Georgie Badiel is the epitome of Parisian chic, despite hailing from Burkina Faso. Or maybe it's simply the clothes. One thing's for sure, we've got some spending…

TOMS Shoes Gets Preppy, Adds Wedges For Spring

When TOMS Shoes first came out, I thought they looked weird and wouldn't put on a pair to save my life (or even to help charitably put shoes on a child, as Toms does with every purchase). But this fall, they released a lace-up version that comes in variou…

Runway Report: Jenni Kayne Very Sparkly But Kind of Boring

Designer Jenni Kayne managed a miraculous feat at her Spring 2010 presentation last night. She somehow managed to present a collection that was simultaneously covered in sequins and boring as hell. For those of you intimately familiar with the exciting powers of silver sequinage, this will be a perplexing concept. So we will further explain:…

Cheapskate: Ann Taylor Loft Isn’t Only For Your Mama

It used to be that the only time we ventured into Ann Taylor Loft was to buy our mother a gift card for her birthday. Recently, we walked past the store's window display and thought: Either the retailer has gotten a youthful makeover or our tastes have matured. We don't know which one of the…

Quickies!: Lady Gaga Had A Run-In With The Russian Popo

Lady Gaga tweeted that she was nearly arrested for wearing leather at St. Basil's in Russia. [Perez Hilton -- Her habit of not wearing pants was probably what really got her into trouble. Tattoo discrimination is alive and well. Joel Madden was recently told to cover his tattooed arms or he…

Style On The Street: Nice Lookin’ Shorts

Annika has challenged us all to wear shorts (and look nice doing so) this spring, and Katy here proves that it's possible! Along with her nude lace-up flats, high-waisted shorts, and bangle bracelets, we love how the long necklace ads a little oomph to her outfit. [Weardrobe] Hanging Bullet Flake Necklace,…

Crave: Nine West Emilian Sneaker

Clearly, we're not sneaker women because we can't find a pair of kicks that are stylish and make us feel as sexy as a pair of stilettos. But these by New Balance for Nine West are just plain fun. And with our feet firmly planted on the floor and no need for posing,…

Sliding Scale: Espadrille Wedges, Floral Tops, & Trench Coats

Three big trends for spring to fit every budget! ESPADRILLE WEDGES We're stoked that espadrilles are making a big comeback this season because they're the ultimate multi-purpose shoe. They're the sort of dress-up/dress-down accessory that works particularly well with jeans and simple dresses. We're loving the candy-colored varieties that are popping up all over stores,…
