Ah, music. From gym playlists to concerts, tunes that let us get our groove on are always good in our book. Whether we’re chatting about Beyonce’s use of the “B-word” in her latest song “Bow Down,” reminiscing about music from back in the day (oh boy, that would be Def Leppard, Belinda Carlisle and Eddie Money for me) or excited about checking out a new local […]
Whether they are online or in hard copy, I’ve always been a fan of fashion magazines. Perhaps it’s my ADD, maybe it’s the fact that you can pack in the best of the best from several runway shows all at your finger tips — but I think magazines are some of the most efficient and […]
In the spirit of April 1st, we are sharing an interesting infographic about the top beauty myths that may have fooled some of us once or twice (okay, more than twice in my case). From commonplace nuggets like “Find harshest possible lighting to apply foundation” to head-scratchers such as “For every gray hair plucked, two […]
Spring is here, in weather and in look, and I’m super excited to trade my wool socks and tall leather boots in for wedges and skirts. I’m also extra thrilled that spring fashion this year is trending on soft and bright colors, ruffles, and silky materials- three of my favorite things! However, ever since I made […]
One of my fondest childhood memories is of Easter. I believed in the bunny, and when I woke up I was greeted by a scatter of jelly beans leading a trail across my bedroom door. Following the beans, I was led down the hall and out on to our front porch, down the stairs and […]
A few days ago, it was sunny in Los Angeles. And by sunny, I don’t mean “30 degrees without a cloud in the sky” as I know some of my east-coast friends have notified me. Barely out of winter, it was an impressive low seventies and totally clear. Of course, just as I was starting […]
What: In case you haven’t heard this week, Vera Wang has opened a Shanghai bridal boutique in January to house her globally-revered bridal couture creations. Which typically wouldn’t be such a huge point of interest for normal folks who aren’t celebrity brides, except that the shop was charging 3,000 yuan ($480) for customers to have […]
If you’re anything like me, or the majority of northern-dwelling Americans for that matter, this time of year has you feeling blah. The sky is grey, the flowers are popping up but still far from blooming, and you’re more than ready to bring out your sandals. So you may have to look elsewhere for a fashion […]
The Lowdown: Ditsies is a customizable online underwear club that offers a new pair of designer underwear each month for $12. (Don’t worry, they let you switch it up so you don’t get bored) Other than the 12 dollars a month, there are no other associated fees, and shipping is free. After you pick the style, color, […]
The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky. Since their rise to reality stardom, Kim, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian have worked on an incredible amount of projects that have almost nothing in common with one another. Which is a wonderful thing for their careers and bank accounts, yet confusing for the rest of the […]
In the history of American fashion there have been many fascinating, influential, talented women who innovate and create amazing fashions. Here at The Budget Fashionista we’d like to highlight just a few of them for National Women’s History Month. We’ve come a long way, baby! One such woman is Betsey Johnson.
Apparently launching a summer collection with Ms. Beyoncé herself wasn’t enough for Sweden’s hottest brand. H&M’s pre-summer collection features styles inspired by some of the hottest models in the industry: Joan Smalls, Daphne Groeneveld, Lindsey Wixson, and Liu Wen. These four ladies may be strutting thousands of dollars worth of designer goods on the runway, […]
First the Olsen twins had that whole “let’s decorate bags with prescription pills” thing happening and now, it’s all about LEGO bricks. This time it’s not an Olsen brainchild, but that of LEGO jewelry and accessories maker, Agnieszka Biernacka (say that three times fast). Biernacka is selling a limited edition LEGO-made Gucci replica on her site, […]
Shoulder pads were never my thing, Honey. Thank God I happen to work in a casual office. So you can bet that I know the pros and cons…. er, correction, there really only is one con to working in a casual office: how do I motivate myself to come to work dressed at all?
