When the Outfit in your Head Doesn’t Go as Planned

There is an art to online shopping. Not only does it take hours of searching through various pages for the hottest new styles, it also is a journey to find the coupon codes you want to use at the end of your purchase. Because, let’s be real, when it comes to the end and you see the balance of $200 and then you have to …

Bottom Trends (and we’re not talking about trends that suck)

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 …

Where to Wear

Have some funky pieces in your closet that are begging to see the light of day?

Let’s be real, you’re kind of the play boy of clothes – always promising you’re going to take them out in public, but …

Found You Miss New Bootie

Remember when you were working on your “summer bod” a few months ago, and then weirdly you woke up a few days ago and it was August? Oh darn… it’s almost not bikini season anymore? Total bummer! (insert smirk here) Everyone is a big fan of summer, unless you’re allergic to the sun or something, then that sucks, but normally people are pretty jazzed for …

Stages of the Infamous Darty

We are blessed each year with a few warm months, and within those months are beautiful Saturdays that one must take advantage of, because before you know it you’re digging your car out of eight inches of snow (at least I am, here in Chicago). What you do with those Saturdays says a lot about you – you can spend the day hiking (walking), shopping, …

How to Win Your Ex Back

Fool proof ways to make sure the guy who got away won’t be getting away from your love anymore! Trust me, I’m a doctor…  Drunk call him every weekend (even when you’re not drunk) Everyone knows drunk words are sober thoughts! Don’t be afraid to let him know your true feelings for him. Everyone loves a 2 AM call that sounds like the caller is …
