With just a small section… View Post
Kat Von D has publicly begun the slow and painful process of undergoing laser treatment for removing the tattoo of Jesse James’ face from her rib cage. Ouch.

Clémence Poésy is currently one of the “It” girls of the Parisian fashion world. Her status continues to rise, as she is not only known as a woman of impeccable taste, but as a very talented actress as well.

Coming from Southern California, there is never a real need for functional winter fashion. Specifically, it never gets cold enough to necessitate real winter-ware, so the truth is that when it comes to being warm and fashionable on the occasion that it drops below 60 degrees, I’m not a natural. How to pair strappy sandals with skirts? Yes. How to… View Post
Now here’s a brand that deserves its own Good Guy Greg meme. Swedish fashion company H&M has announced that it will be opening its store doors worldwide to used garments in exchange for H&M store vouchers. You heard us right! One bag of used garments = store voucher. Sounds too good to be true? Check out the rest of the… View Post
Ho ho ho, ladies! The holidays are officially here and I couldn’t be more ecstatic about it. And while I do live in the middle of the Sonoran desert, I’ll have you know that despite the lack of snowflakes and ultra chilly temps, we desert dwellers still decorate appropriately. Only instead of decking the halls and pines and building snowmen,… View Post
Is it possible that Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer could shed some light (pun intended) on our style?

A Christmas Story and… View Post
Looks like Prince William and Kate Middleton are in the midst of some serious “what color should we paint the baby’s room?” discussions. Yep, the buzz about Kate’s pregnancy has us talking big-time. Although there’s been lots of gender and baby name guessing, the bigger focus here at TBF is on affordable Kate-esque maternity clothing. In other words: Kate style,… View Post
When it comes to picking out gifts for your family, friends, and co-workers this holiday season, we recommend giving the gift of beauty. The reason is because every girl loves a new beauty product and with so many of them under $10.00, you can give them to every gal on your list without breaking the bank. See our favorites below.
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 muggles have events we want… View Post

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 in the complete opposite direction… View Post

I’ll admit to being a bit of a sucker for any product that promises to stave off the aging process. I mean, don’t we all want a refreshed face with a glowing finish? But did you know it takes more than just lotions and potions to get the glow? Of course, a solid beauty product is part of the program… View Post
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.
