Ideas for the Perfect New Year’s Eve Dress!

12:49 PM

New Year's

In the regular world, Halloween is when children dress up in costumes and beg for candy. In Girl World, Halloween is the one night a year when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.

-Mean Girls

New Year's Eve is much like Halloween. It's that one time of year where certain over-the-top styles like glitter, sequins, mini dresses and sky high platforms are acceptable. Unless it's your style to go out every night wearing shimmering makeup and glitzy dresses, try and save it for a special occasion like New Year's Eve.

Shop a few of our favorite picks for New Year's Eve below and check out the rest of our fabulous options, here! (more…)

Baby, It’s Cold Outside: Layer Up!

2:38 PM

Layers For those of you on the East Coast, we assume you're well aware of the recent temperature drop we've been experiencing. The weather has been crisp, cool, fresh and an all-around perfect fall season as of yet. If you haven't already done so, it's officially time to break out your layering pieces.

Oh, layering. Where do we even begin? We think of layering as a type of art. If done properly, you can look so effortless and chic like you quickly threw together this masterpiece of an outfit. Someone will always pay you that compliment of, “Oh my god you look so cute today!” and the response is generally, “Really?!! I just threw it on and ran out the door.”

Bottom line: once you know how to properly layer your garments the outcome will always be compliment-worthy. We put together four different layered-up outfits for daily situations all girls encounter.

Watch the video to see how we layer up! (more…)

How to Wear the Trend: Camo

9:54 AM

In the past, most of us reserved camouflage for real, mean, hide-in-the-forest type bustle. And for the brave who rocked it, they infiltrated the military thrift stores and made their own anti-society fashion mark on the world, sometimes alone. We looked at them and thought, man they must be a tough cookie, because if they walk into a dark forest they might just disappear…and then what?

Those days are over. No one will think you’re GI-Woman come to life. But you can be — dare I say it — trendy. Top designers like Phillip Lim, DKNY, Equipment and even Manolo Blahnik have taken this otherwise brute feeling pattern and made it high-fashion and all over the streets of style. The colors are always neutral in nature, ranging from green to khaki, with subtle hints of grey. For the bolder, you’ll see movement into the reds and blues, the special forces of high fashion camo.

So now that you can buy it from SINGER22, how do you wear this pattern? It’s neutral in color and yet so bold in nature, which makes it hard for a lot of us to wrap our heads around how to make it good. Follow some key guidelines: (more…)

Fashion Meets Baked by Melissa Cupcakes

3:46 PM

Baked by MelissaBaked by Melissa. Three words that can grab my attention in less than a second. I'm a huge cupcake lover and what can be better than mini cupcakes with wacky, but oh-so-yummy flavors? If you have never experienced the euphoria of Baked by Melissa, then you need to re-evaluate every decision you've made about cupcakes…and life (just kidding, kind of).

Aside from cupcakes (and every other morsel of food) I love shopping, I mean, what girl doesn't? Let's be serious.

Rachel’s Radar: Spring Cleaning!

12:00 AM

Luckily, spring is almost upon us! Spring cleaning is my favorite thing to do when the weather starts to warm up. It feels great to empty out my closet and organize myself, which makes me feel lighter all around. Plus, cleaning out my closet means more room for new clothes, and who doesn't want that?!

One of my go-to spring essentials is always a fresh white V-neck tee by Monrow. It's easy for whites to turn yellow from season to season and nothing feels dirtier to me than a slightly yellow tee that's meant to be white. Make sure to stock your closets with plenty of white tees that you can easily grab in a hurry to match any outfit. (more…)
