Flying used to be considered mega-glamorous and exciting, but these days, most people treat flying like it’s a horrible inconvenience, and dress much the same. To wit: If I see one more girl in a matching Juicy sweatsuit and Uggs in front of me in line during a TSA screening, I’m going to scream. People, you are in public. Dress better — and more practically for flying! To help you do that, I’ve assembled nine airport fashion dos and don’ts. Watch and learn.
Celebs, they’re just like us! Their heels break, their pants are too tight, their stockings run, and they get visible panty lines.

Click on to see how to solve their clothing mishaps and yours!
“One of my dearest friends is getting married in a few months and she’s asked me to be a bridesmaid. Super! However, she had requested that the bridesmaids wear some kind of brown suit instead of the usual dress. Now, while I really appreciate her originality and desire for us girls to be able to use our outfits again later (and really actually use them), I have been having the hardest time finding something cute, appropriate, and cool enough to be worn in Texas in July. We can choose pants, skirts, maybe even some tailored shorts in any shade of brown.” – Brown Frown
First off, you must be a really good friend, because that is a really ungodly bad color scheme to go with for a wedding. You’re fighting against two difficulties here: 1) The color and 2) the heat. So it’s imperative that if you’re being told to wear a “suit” of some kind, you have lightweight layers. And secondly, it’s likely that you’re going to want to take the blazer off as soon as the ceremony portion of the wedding is over, so it’s imperative that you have something real cute on underneath. So I say, focus on that portion of the outfit above all else. And in the event that you can’t find anything that you’re 100 percent thrilled with, remember that you can always cover up a less than thrilling dress with some fun statement jewelry and bold shoes, and hey, it’s only one day out of your life.

Sometimes, shopping at warehouse clubs like Costco and Sam’s Club can be overwhelming. With aisle upon aisle of bulk items and products, it’s easy to lose track of time and buy things you don’t necessarily need. Instead, make your shopping experience easier and more efficient with our tips.

I saw the perfect tee when I was in high school, it was simple, fitted, had cap-sleeves, a nice color, and a very, very deep scoop neck–like “how would I wear a bra under that” deep…only problem–it was online and I didn’t have a card. Now, I can’t find any shirts that are like it! Most tees either don’t have plunging necklines or they aren’t fitted (damn you massive trash-bag-like tee trend!). I’m looking for something that isn’t see-through or white…designs are fine, I love an interesting tee! …I just can’t find anything. – Scoop Me Away
Isn’t it the worst when you see a magical shirt you love and then can’t find it when you’re ready to buy? The shirt becomes a mythical object that you’re constantly searching for, never satisfied. I had the same thing with a striped H&M top a few years back. I totally get it. What I’m hearing is that you want a deep scoop — something a tad scandalous that might be good for layering, or to wear with a cute camisole underneath. I think I may have found you some suitable replacements that might satiate your scoop neck craving. Click through to check ‘em out.
