“I will be a reluctant bridesmaid in a family member’s wedding next month. The bride is having us wear silver evening shoes, either sandals or open-toe pumps, with this dusty purple (‘wisteria,’ hello) gown. Now, buying silver shoes on a budget is pretty much a one-way ticket to trashy town, but I refuse to spend over $200 on a pair of shoes that I’ll probably never wear again. Can you help me find a pair of affordable silver open-toe shoes that aren’t a death sentence for my already-compromised fashion sense?” — Sulking About Silver

Ah, the grin-and-bear-it bridesmaid. We’ve all been there, and some fare worse than others. Consider yourself fortunate: that dress is actually pretty alright! Of course, it’s probably made of uber-flammable taffeta or some shit, so be careful should you find yourself inebriated and in a close proximity to candles, which you undoubtedly will.

How to wear orange wedges

I received these shoes as a gift recently and I am racking my brain trying to figure out what to wear with them that is daytime casual. I feel like an orange dress would be too much. Any thoughts?––Gina

First off Gina, hi! I gotta say, I think it’s kind of weird to gift someone a pair of shoes. Shoes are so particular and personal, but then again, maybe I’m just prejudiced because the one time somebody wanted to buy me shoes it was really weird. Anyways! Those shoes have a lot of personality, which means that you should keep the rest of your outfit pretty tame. Let the shoes do the talking (and walking, as it were). Keep reading »

“I recently purchased this Oh My Love Textured Skater Dress from ASOS, and need help styling this gem! Got any advice?” — Megan

You know, normally, I’m all, “demure, demure, demure, don’t look like you’re up in the clurb when you’re actually going to the bank,” but something tells me that a woman whose email address includes the words “fashion diva” can handle a little wild style. After the jump, black and yellow, black and yellow.

Style 911: Help Me Find Work-Appropriate Shorts!

Lovely reader Elise left the following question on our Facebook page:

Would it be possible to do a slideshow on shorts-at-work? So many of the shorts styles are too revealing to work, wearing jeans all the time is way hot, and wearing skirts all the time is way too girly for my .com office! Frisky to the fashion rescue?

Of course we’d be happy to help! Shorts at work can be a tricky proposition… Keep reading »

I realize this post was not meant to be inspirational, but can someone PLEASE tell me where on earth that swimsuit is from? I kind of love it. I would look nothing like this in it but I still want one!  – TheFriskyFan

The heart wants what it wants, and if you want Farrah Abraham’s bathing suit, well, I’m not going to stop you. We happen to know exactly who makes Farrah’s sparkly, probably-not-waterproof swimsuit. It’s made by Poolside Collection by Karina Copado and it’s $240. You might notice that the Poolside Collection site has cropped out Farrah’s face. I’m guessing they don’t want the association.

Style 911: Help Me Find The Perfect Plus-Size Maxi Dress!

“I would love some fashion advice. I’m on the smaller end of plus sized (14-16) and I want to get my first maxi dress. Although I am of average height I have always steered away from long dresses because I have felt like they made me look, for lack of better terms, stumpy and dumpy. I’m willing to take a style leap of faith though! My issue is I have no idea what type of maxi dress to look for. I need one that accommodates a combination of short legs, long torso, and large bust. Ideally it could transition from fairly casual office to going out after work. Any tips?” — Mad for Maxis

Dear Mad for Maxis,

It sounds like you and I have a really similar body shape, and I, too, have shied away from maxi dresses because my junior high PE teacher used to call me Stumpy and I’ve had no desire to resurrect that nickname in my adult life. But the fact is I have seen maxi dresses look truly fabulous (and flattering!) on women of all shapes and sizes, so there’s no reason for us to sit on the sidelines anymore. Let’s make this the summer of maxis! Keep reading »
