Anonymous said: Hey, I'm turning 14 soon and I would love a really nice handbag cos my current one that I use 24/7 is breaking. I was wondering if you could recommend any affordable bags that are a bit different yet still wearable? (Not too large, perfect for many occassions) Or perhaps some makes you recommend I should look at? Thanks x

Hello there! My first recommendation would be to check out vintage shops, Etsy, and eBay for some great vintage bags…you can find timeless styles for super cheap prices.

But if you want a brand spankin new bag, here are some of my favorites. (I can’t include pics, so you have to click on the links to view…sorry!)

1. Forever 21, Chic Alligator Bag, $29.80

2. Piperlime, Big Budda Chloe Bag, $95

3. ASOS, River Island Bamboo Handle, $68.32

4. Aldo, Donaway Bag, $50

5. Aldo, Cyphert Bag, $29.98

Let me know if you like these! If not, I can go on the hunt for some more!

Fashion Q&A

The world of fashion is glamorous, exciting, fun…and sometimes frightening!  What to pair with what, how to find the perfect fitting jeans, what to wear to a party…it’s enough to drive a girl crazy!  Since not all of us are lucky enough to have our personal stylists, trying to embrace your inner fashionista can be a challenge.

But I want to help solve this problem!  If you have any fashion-related questions, go to the Fashion Q&A tab and ask me!

You’re probably wondering what makes me (some random girl on tumblr) qualified to answer fashion questions.  Well, I attended a fashion college and have had first hand experience in the fashion world working with magazine editors, stylists, photographers and attending fashion shows.  Plus I “work” in New York City, so I am surrounded by some of the best dressed people in the world all day!

So ask me anything fashion related!

This season, say goodbye to those bland bottoms!  Instead of throwing on those tired blue jeans, bring a pop of unexpected color to your wardrobe with vibrant colored bottoms.  There are a variety of great jeans that are available in every single shade of the rainbow, making it easier than ever to stand out in a crowd.  For those fashionistas who are really daring and love color, pair these bright bottoms with a brightly colored top (but the top must be of a different, yet complementary color, such as a purple top paired with a turquoise jean). Check out some of my favorite picks above.

1.  Dollhouse - 5 Pocket Crayon Bright Skinny, $20

2.  Rag & Bone - Skinny Jean, $165

3.  Hudson - May Skinny Cropped Jeans, $176

4.  J Brand - Midrise Skinny Leg Jeans, $176

5.  Current/Elliott - The Ankle Skinny Jeans, $168

Just because it’s summer time does not mean your beloved scarves now have to sit in hibernation.  Rather, a scarf is the perfect accessory to elevate your summer wardrobe from boring to brilliant.  Check out the video above for some great ideas of how to get the most use from your summer scarf collection.  Also, be on the look-out for my own how-to video of how to turn your scarf into a summer cute belt…coming soon!

So I am obsessed with the Summer 2011 collection from Maloles.  In case you don’t know, Maloles started out as French shoe brand that became famous for their comfy, yet chic ballet flats.  Now the brand has expanded to include a full line of footwear.  The Summer 2011 collection mixes traditional silhouettes with unexpected fabrics and designs that make every shoe a must have.  Check out the pictures for my favorites and view the whole collection HERE.

She Wore WHAT?!?!

With an outfit like this, I’m not surprised Justin Timberlake broke up with Jessica Biel. Can someone please explain to me why Jessica chose to wear a Fall 2011 Gucci velvet suit…during spring time…for a Revlon beauty event. This outfit is so bad on SO many different levels.

Oh wait, it’s just Mischa Barton…I thought only famous people were photographed by the paparazzi.  My mistake.

Say what you want about the hair, but I absolutely LOVE this outfit on Solange Knowles. The androgyny of the oversized suit is offset by the wonderfully feminine yellow color, creating a perfectly fresh and light summer look. I am going to be on the hunt for pieces to re-create this look.
