The New Years holiday is what I’d like to call one of the trickiest holidays to dress for. It’s the only time of the year you can get away with leaving a glitter trail, wearing sparkles (preferably not pants), and velvet. Yet, no matter which way you look at it, New Years fashion is reminiscent of Hugh Hefner meets Rainbow Bright with a dollop of Beyonce on the side.
Though my typical New Years involves extra appetizers and watching the Times Square ball drop, there is that occasional party invite that leaves you wondering “what to wear on New Years Eve?” Sure the short skirt worked in college but so did Smirnoff Ice. Times of changed and so should you. Now that I’m officially in my quarter life I prefer hailing a cab on the street corner to looking like I belong on one.
So, let’s practice…
HOW NOT: To Look Like a Sparkly Slut (pardon the language) on New Years!

The big September issues are in full swing. You can almost feel the cool breeze (or maybe that was my dog). Either way, if you haven’t yet received the giant books of a magazine in the mail you know them all too well as the ones that distract you in the grocery store line alongside the Reeses Cups & tabloid headlines that read “Stars Have Cellulite”…big shocker there!
The depressing thing about most of the September magazines is their price tag. Not the magazine itself, those normally run around 4 bucks, but the items inside like the $395 Brian Atwood pumps or $245 DKNY blouse along with the many other drool worthy pieces. Since the plan is to wear the items not place them in a glass box I’m afraid I’d have to pass on selling my arm for a FENDI bag or a pair of Paige jeans.
It is important to remember that trends are trends and while pattern pants are currently having their prom queen moment. That too will pass just like high school. So in order to get your fashion fix with fashion trends you can afford…here’s to WINNING this fall.

I can be a complete sucker for a good trend. Though it can lead to some pretty unattractive, rather embarrassing photos later on in life. Which is exactly why it’s important not to follow blindly. Otherwise, you might find yourself sporting harem pants & chokers two things better left in the 90s. Sadly most of us have been there, and our parents can prove it. It’s too bad mine had to be in the form of Kelly Clarkson’s striped hair.
Since starting a 20 something fashion blog I have taken on what I believe is two of my sole purposes in life. That is to make aware yet rid the planet of pleated khakis and man cleavage (well..unless it’s David Beckham’s).
Rachel Ray may be helping obese children, Ellen may be bringing awareness to rescued pets, but I am preventing 20 somethings from turning into the forbidden “Triple P’s” (pleated panted professionals). So it was a delightful surprise when I ran across this viral YouTube video.
If you’re one of those girls that knows a guy whose daily uniform consists of pleated pants, a polo, & a cell phone holder clipped to his belt. Thanks to the oh so creative team over at Old Navy and their spoof brand “Corporado”. Here’s the perfect 21st century way to say, “Please Stop!”
It seems a buzz has been brewing across the blogosphere. Pippa Middleton has been caught wearing nude pantyhose. (Gasp!) Yes, the ones you can find on your local Hooters girl & not to mention your grandmother.
Over the past decade, a fascination with the so-called “booty” has grabbed the attention of men and women around the globe. It’s likely that at some point you’ve asked a friend the infamous question of whether or not they think your butt looks big, leaving that person with the awkward responsibility of answering yes or no.
Some trends come and go, but sadly these particular ones won’t leave!
If there was ever an appropriate time for a rap song. I believe this would be it! A big fashionable SHOUT OUT to @Ludacris for providing my imaginary playlist to this blog post: “Roll Out, Roll Out!”
Crystal Renn Still Considered Plus Size?!

There is something to be said about trends. They can turn owls into the “it” animal, past decades into new style, and sadly Shape-Ups into a walking phenom. Though trends run the risk of creating looks like the 80s it’s something you can’t just follow but must choose wisely!
Wow! I didn’t think it could be done, but leave it to American Apparel to create one of the worst clothing items I’ve ever seen! Introducing the new:
Stretch Velvet Tank Thong
Thought it’s no surprise that American Apparel would try to pull this kind of thing off. They’re often known for naughty and subjective ads that leave you wondering fashion brand or retro strip club? While they may have super comfy tees I’m going to take a giant leap and say that girls who buy super comfy tees don’t buy onsie thongs or attempt to act sexy while posing in one.
Hard to believe..right?
So while American Apparel is still deciding on how to fix financial woes or whether to be a soft porn site…
Needless to say…All sales are final.
I did have doubts about being able to find something. I wasn’t quite sure what to buy a blogger from Michigan whom I’d never met, and I was afraid of being overwhelmed by the massive store. Instead, it was beyond easy shopping at my local TJ Maxx. In fact it was probably too easy!
To fly or not to fly may be the question that I’m posing, but it’s possible the real question should be “A Cape, Really?”
Capes have made appearances on the runway and have recently been seen out and about this early winter. Rocking the cape takes more than a bold fashion sense and uber confidence…YES PEOPLE…it takes super powers!
Does shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday bring back high school memories? Probably not, but it does draw some creepy parallels to high school cliques in the sort of way in which you probably would opt to forget!
Black Friday representing the high school social status known as the “Go Getters” A+ students who prefer not to do anything less than the best. Meaning they will find those deals. The “Popular Girls” who only participate in large shopping groups excluding people from not a lunch table but yes… vicious shopping lines. And the “Followers” who thought shopping at 4 a.m. with thousands of people actually looked like good idea.
