With the holidays upon us, having a great handbag for every party is a must. Turns out, there’s one that’ll not only carry my belongings, but will 1) serve as a reminder to take my inner ear infection antibiotics and 2) set me back $55,000 (as if).
So, most of us won’t be strutting the red carpet alongside Ryan Seacrest and his fab coif, playing the “which-ex-is-the-song-about” guessing game with our favorite country glam star T.Swift. We may not even be on the A list (or B, or C list for that matter) of Vanity Fair’s hot soirees, but even us mere […]
There’s one party every year where business is guaranteed to mix with pleasure: Your holiday work party. As fun as it is to finally let your hair down with your fellow co-workers, the savvy Budget Fashionista remembers that staying classy is just as important as dressing for the job. Keep these five tips in mind […]
We blame Princess Kate for bringing hot rollers back into style. They are great for creating beautiful curls without getting expensive perms or using time consuming curling irons. In fact, you can just put them in your hair, go about your morning routine, and take them out just before you head to the office.
Zippers are zig zagging on everything this season, from jeans to shirts to high-heeled eye poppers! A zipper is an easy way to make your outfit sing, like wearing animal print as a shoe or belt, the bright silver or gold teeth add just the right amount of edge to an outfit. You can go […]
This post is from our new sister site Mighty Beauty. Keeping your complexion moisturized and radiant when the weather is rainy, cold and windy is definitely a challenge to say the least. Luckily, you don’t have to make a spa appointment to keep your skin looking its best. There are a few items in your […]
For every teacher, putting together a professional yet stylish teacher’s wardrobe is a big challenge–even more so when doing it on a budget. Granted that there are seasonal fashion collections that are all about teacher lovin’ (Norma Kamali, if you’re reading this, we miss you and your $35 chic work ensembles at Wal-Mart). But we can’t count […]
Winter has barely set in, and yet we’re already headlining summer season fashion prospects. While we seriously hate jumping the (fashion) gun as much as the next person, we can’t help but feel giddy about Target‘s announcement of an exclusive partnership with footwear hubby-and-wife team Sam and Libby Edelman. They were part of our shoe racks while growing up […]
It’s possible there may be no greater or better-known modern day fashion icon than Kate Moss. There are tens of thousands of pictures of her on the internet, between the covers of coffee table books and hanging in art galleries and museums all over the world confirming her style royalty status. Whether it’s that first […]
Is anyone else somewhat confused by American traditions that take place over Thanksgiving weekend? Maybe you come from a family of Lululemon-wearing, bikram yoga-practicing, vegan and we-only-eat-homegrown-organic-veggies hippies (No offense to Lululemon-wearing, bikram yoga-practicing, vegan and we-only-eat-homegrown-organic-veggies families!). For the majority of us, on Thanksgiving, we partake in some serious calorie gorging. Mashed potatoes and […]
The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky. These days, there are as many people standing outside of the show venues taking pictures as there are walking in. Some of these street style photogs are just faces in the crowd; others are stars in their own right. We asked HB Nam of […]
Black Friday brings out the best in me. That is, no matter what time of day (okay, morning), no matter how many lines, bags, and crazy people I have to navigate, I let nothing phase me.
Whenever the boutique windows on my favorite shopping path aren’t providing me with excited inspiration, then I know it’s time to surpass boundaries. Sure the world is getting smaller, globalization etc., etc., but somehow a lot of the hottest fashion trends from across the globe still fail to make it to our own wardrobes. When I […]
This post is from our new sister site Mighty Beauty. The holidays are just around the corner, which means now is the perfect time to reflect your excitement for the season with a pretty white manicure. Both bold and subtle shades of white are on trend for the fall and winter, and one (or more) […]
Have you ever spread out on the grass–day or night–and looked up into the sky? It’s a strange sensation, lying there looking up. Almost dizzying. You realize that you’re not so big, but that the world truly is. And the more you think about it, the more you understand that there isn’t much between you […]
