I was late to work today. Well, I’m late every day because I seem to have a high rate of mishaps first thing in the morning, but today I was super late. I woke up early, with a vow to be on time. That’s how it always begins. At 6:50 a.m., my roommate knocked on my door to tell me there was no hot water. This is becoming a way-too-normal occurrence in my apartment lately (that’s another post). Only, today it was worse because my parents are in town and we’re having dinner tonight and I had planned to shave my legs and wash my hair, so this was particularly bad news. I decided that there was no way I could skip the hair washing, but I could get away with no leg shaving and wear one of my jumpers, of which I have many. The only issue with wearing a one piece is the whole peeing thing. And I drink an absurd amount of coffee and water, so I have to pee ALL THE TIME. Keep reading »

Ami’s Style Challenge: Skirting The Issue For $300 Or Less

How to wear skirts

When I told The Frisky that I was going to try and fulfill their style needs and wants, Ami piped up immediately. “Skirts!” she said. “I don’t know how to wear them so I just wear dresses instead.” Apparently, years ago, Ami had a bad skirt-related incident, which left her unskirted for lyfe. An ex-boyfriend told her that she didn’t look good in them, so she gave up trying to find the right skirts for her. This is a shame. To help her get over her fear, I’ve found a few skirty looks that I think would work really well for her. They are all generally the same shape — Ami has super duper long legs and a short torso, so flared and longer skirts don’t work as well as tight, body-hugging skirts. Here are the basic outfit elements I’ve found:

Pixie Market Tropical Mini Skit, $29
Motel Printed Mini Skirt, $30.55
Akira Watercolor Scuba Mini Skirt, $26.90
Kelsi Dagger Anisa Low Heel Sandal, $66.50
Mink Pink Mischief Sleeveless Shirt, $37.20
Kenneth Cole Sleeveless Tuxedo Shirt in Ivory: $39.99
American Apparel Silky Loose Crop Tee, $38
Michael Antonio Davies Flat Sandal, $34.95

After the jump, three outfits I put together for Ami — all for around $300 total!

“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.

Jessica’s Style Challenge: Get Me The Nautical Look For $300 Or Less

nautical style challenge

Fun fact: As feminine as our Jessica typically dresses, she also enjoys a bit of a more masculine edge. Jess loves nautical style, specifically with a Jean Seberg kind of Fraaaanch twist and is looking to add some pieces to her wardrobe that will reflect that. But here’s the kicker: She doesn’t want to spend more than $300 for everything –– total. So I went to scouring high and low for awesome, seaworthy items that won’t make her look like a salty sea captain or a sea wench (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

After hours sweating it out on e-commerce sites, I found a selection of tops, bottoms, shoes and accessories that I think she’ll love. Clockwise from top left:

Gap Boyfriend Shorts, $33.96
Flynn Skye for Free People Nautical Stripe Maxi, $99.95
J. Crew Factory Stripe Boatneck Tee, $23.50
Levi’s Color Midrise Skinny Ankle Jeans, $54
Aerosoles Water Plush Wedge Sandal, $39.95
Navy Sailor’s Knot Bracelet, $12.99
Yellow Canvas Belt, $11.99
Sea Through Top, $37.99

See (heh) how to wear it all after the jump! 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.

One of the main reasons so many women face the proverbial “closet full of clothes and nothing to wear” dilemma is their closets are a jumbled mess. Sifting through tightly jammed hangers and overstuffed shelves can be incredibly frustrating and overwhelming, leaving you feeling like you have nothing to wear.

Cleaning out your closest isn’t only practical, it’s economical and can help you save (and even make) money. To help you get the most out of your wardrobe–and save time, money, and stress on a daily basis–Tracy DiNunzio, closet organizing pro and founder of resale marketplaces Tradesy and Tradesy Weddings, is sharing her top  closet cleaning tips. Here are five good reasons to tackle all that clutter! Read more on A New Mode…

The Dos & Don’ts Of Wearing … Overalls

You’re an adult, you’re not a baby. So if you’re going to wear overalls, wear adult overalls, not weird baby overalls that will make you look like you crapped your pants or something. Conversely, wear them too tight and you just look uncomfortable. To me, the perfect overalls outfit would be loosely worn ‘alls, rolled up on the bottom with heels and a simple striped tank. The heels take the outfit from “I’m in my backyard weeding the garden” to “I’m a carefree tomboy out for a sexy night on the town.” Or something.

After the jump, we’ve got stars rocking overalls — some the right way, many the wrong way. Take a look and tell us how you’d wear a pair.

“I’m a woman with love handles. I’m 5’11″ and a size 10 but even when I was a size 6, my (definitely smaller) love handles were still be a problem. Could you recommend good jeans for someone with this issue? I have two styles of jeans from The Gap and it has to be a really super fabulous body image day for me to wear them out of the house. Basically I’m left with my H&M skinny jeans with normal rise. They’re a size bigger than I normally wear but, unlike The Gap, they still cling well to my thighs despite being a little looser in the waist where I need the help. Going up to a 12 at The Gap is too big, too baggy and completely unflattering.

Any help would be amazing! I’m willing to pay $100 or even a bit more for something that is flattering and fits well.” — Jil

“I just got these shoes on super sale from a local boutique here in Philly! I can’t wait to wear them this summer … how do you recommend I style them?” –Jackie

First off, nice score on these Swedish Hasbeens! These are awesome. Did you know that Swedish Hasbeens are actually derived from a bunch of Swedish clog deadstock someone found in a warehouse? Or as the Swedish Hasbeens site explains, “Her name was Anita and she was the hottest mum in all of southern Sweden in the 1970s. While smoking Camel she screamed at her kids until her curlers fell out and just looked fabulous in her white high-heeled clogs. ”

The more you know!

I understand not wanting to wait til summer to wear these, though they’ll obviously go great with any bright sundresses you’ve got. So in order to ameliorate the current weather situation, I’m going to suggest that you Wear An Outfit That Is Puzzling To Men — that is, the old shorts and tights combo. Though Rachel and I vehemently disagree on the merits of wearing open-toed shoes with tights, I think it’s tres adorable, and since I’m answering this Style 911, what I say goes. After the jump, I give you two options on how to do this. Keep reading »

“I could really use your advice about this pair of velvet Levi’s that I bought. I have been a jeans-only girl my entire life, so the last time I was at the mall I decided to be a little adventurous and went ahead and bought these pants without any thought as to how I might style them. Now I’m stuck! Thus far, I’ve only been able to awkwardly pair them with a white striped shirt! I could really use suggestions for not only tops, but shoes as well. I hope this doesn’t pose too difficult of a challenge!” – Deepa

Deepa, you are a braver woman than I — I am perennially scared of velvet, mostly because it brings up terrible nightmares of the purple crushed-velvet dress with batwing sleeves I wore to my 8th grade dance. Nightmares! But these velvet pants? They’re pretty damn cute. The thing with velvet is you’ve got to be careful not to pair it with a fabric that’s too weak or flimsy. Otherwise, the pants will completely outshine the shirt. That’s why we’d opt for a chambray button down — it’s got enough heft to it that your outfit will feel balanced. As for shoes, absolutely do not wear the shoes pictured with the pants — those nude platforms will only make your legs look stumpy in velvet jeans. Instead, opt for a low heeled bootie — check out the items we’ve picked out for you, after the jump! Keep reading »
