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 and the stratosphere. It almost… View Post
It’s not exactly newsflash-knowledge that style sits pretty high on the list of things that matter to a fashionista. But that doesn’t mean a girl’s gotta suffer! With sporty chic becoming a mainstay amongst the fash-pack, options abound for those who want an au courant look without an uncomfortable feel. Here are some options for you to conveniently peruse.
The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky. I am never not interested in buying vests: fur, leather, knit, whatever. They’re the most versatile things in a cold weather wardrobe other than, like, gloves. They work as a quiet layering piece or as an easy coat re-vamper, and I like both. But I really, really like the… View Post
Some of the most striking gals that we know so well, like Cameron Diaz and Nicole Richie, have square faces, and if you’re lucky enough to have a defined jaw and gorgeous cheekbones like them, consider us jealous. Of course, with such prominent features, you may be wondering how to best style your hair to complement your lovely bone structure…. View Post
On a recent trip to Ireland, my flight had what was supposed to be a two-hour layover in Frankfort, Germany. Just enough time for bier! And giant pretzels! And spaetzel! before hopping the plan and heading to the land of emerald pastures and thick, dark Guinness.
Whether it’s to apply a little control on the waistline or create a clever visual trick to make your curves appear in all the right places, shapewear and undergarments are your best bet to inspire a night of “Seriously?! It’s like you’re Photoshopped!” compliments. Regular TBF readers know how much I love shapewear, so when I heard of a new… View Post
The following is a guest post from our friends at Lucky. Kate Spade, purveyor of all things cute, colorful and cheery, sympathizes—and this spring is launching a brand-new line “meant to capture the spirit of Saturday every day of the week,” according to the company’s president, Craig Leavitt. The new venture’s name? Kate Spade Saturday, of course.
I admit that I’m a compulsive returner.
Nothing changes your perspective on fashion faster than a bun in the oven. I should know; I had a baby four weeks ago and so those nine months are fresh in my mind! For the first time in my life, window-shopping wasn’t what it once was. I felt like a diabetic in a candy store–everything was a no-no for me. Fashion was… View Post
I have no problem investing mega moolah in a product that’s absolutely, truly phenomenal. However, when I find a stop-the-presses beauty product that’s brag-worthy and cheap as heck, I know my life has changed for the better.
Growing up, I had a best friend whose mother wore an apron that read “When the going gets tough, the tough go shopping”. Her joie de vivre, scrolled sweetly across her chest in hot pink script, gracefully carried her around the kitchen from fridge to stove to table. Thinking back to my bestie’s mom and her not-so-surreptitious statement, I can… View Post
So you’ve (finally) put away your Havaianas and neon wedge sandals, yet the thought of stepping into last year’s boots (again) doesn’t exactly make waves on the enthusiasm board. And needless to say, purchasing a new pair of Chloe studded leather booties (or even the knock-offs at Zara) isn’t an option. We feel your situation! Which is why we’ve rounded… View Post
If you follow my posts here at The Budget Fashionista, then you’re probably aware of my monthly box subscription obsession. I love monthly beauty boxes because a) mail is fun and b) trying new products is fun. I was tickled pink (my husband calls me a “grandma” for using that expression, by the way) to discover a new monthly box… View Post
With so many fashionistas joining the blogger bubble, niche markets are carving out their own little slice of Internet real estate. As their looks start to across the blogosphere, these specialized influencers are carrying clout with way more than just their own small communities. Whether they’re informing readers of the best places to shop special sizes, talking about tailoring tricks… View Post
