Booty Call (20 Boots that You Need this Season)

You may have received a 2am call or text with the romantic verbiage of “u up?” and sighed to yourself, because like… can u not? No worries, we’ve been there too. And now we’re sending you the booty call you’ll actually want… the fall booty call filled with the booties you need in your life this season. I’ve thrown in a few older styles for …

The Sale Items to Get Before They’re Gone!

Fall abruptly makes its way back into our lives with the leaves changing colors. Then, Starbucks follows blessing us with their Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Finally, to top it all off, fall throws in a gust of wind that makes wearing your leather jacket a necessity versus just for aesthetic. The other wonderful thing about the season of fall, besides like everything, is that the majority …

Halloween Style Doubles

There are two types of girls – the ones who spend hours painting, crafting, and sewing a beautiful Halloween costume, and the ones who use their cheap eyeliner to draw on whiskers and throw on a pair of cat ears.

I won’t lie to you, the majority of my paycheck is spent on clothes. New silk tops to pair with cozy dusters, chunky sweaters, strappy sandals, miniskirts, heeled booties… I’m getting excited just thinking about it (as my wallet cringes and reminds me that we have rent and student loans). My closet is over flowing with dresses I’ve worn once… some even with the tags …

Wearing White After Labor Day

We are too busy setting trends to follow the rules. I didn’t spend money on a pair of white jeans that I can only wear for a few months out of the year, especially when those few months are over 100 degrees. White pants were made to help out the small bottomed people look like they actually have a butt. It’s 2017 – curves are …
