Let’s face it—in the 80s, we loved a good logo. I mean, what says impeccable style like a big fat corporate brand logo plastered across every region of your body?

As the days and nights get cooler, I tend to live in denial. While I’m ready to embrace fall fashion, I want to put off wearing a heavy winter jacket for as long as I can. A blazer on the other hand is not so much a jacket as it is a fashion statement that keeps you warm. I go… View Post
Ah, L.A. Gear. The high top sneaker that had street cred AND looked super cute, evidenced by their use at one point of celebrity spokesmodels Paula Abdul and Belinda Carlisle.

Bronzer acts as a highlighter unlike blush, which gives your skin a pinkish tint. Of course, it’s easy to overdo it, so here are some tips to help you… View Post
We have had a satisfying life-long love affair with our jeans, but let’s face it – as far as current trends go, jeans are more cazh than fab (and yes, that’s how you abbreviate casual … I googled it). But that doesn’t mean your beloved denim has to be relegated to cleaning-the-basement-day status, it just means that to make your jeans more au courant… View Post
Oh designer shoes, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways—and then count the pennies in the bottom of our purse, because we’ll need every last one to afford you. Or do we? That depends—are you willing to do the, ahem, legwork to find fabulous designer wedding shoes for less? We are, and we’ve actually taken the first steps… View Post
As the hipster ages and culture adapts to new ironies, bands and brands, so too must the aesthetic that birthed a passion for headbands and hoodies. Today’s hipster, while still managing to be steps ahead and behind at the same time (hello, vintage) is more than the thrifted buffalo checks and ditsy floral she once stood for. She can be festival-bound, nostalgic and… View Post

It should come as no surprise that the Queen of Couldn’t-Care-Less takes a laid-back approach to dressing. Luckily for Kristen Stewart, the easygoing style she’s so accustomed to fits right in with her persona, so much so, that it’s shocking to see her in anything else than a signature, simple uniform.
Blue eyeliner usually elicits two reactions: “Oh the eighties!” or “LOVE it, bring it on!” If you fall into the first category and even remember using blue eyeliner like there was no tomorrow in the eighties, perhaps storing it in your Kaboodle and putting it on at your locker mirror so mom didn’t know, maybe it’s time to reconsider. Blue… View Post
