For Once, Shorter is Better

It's hawt out, like extremely. You wanna look cute but not have to work too hard? Layering too much work? Ladies and gents, ladies mostly, I have the solution to your horrific dilemma. Crop tops baby. Say it loud and say it proud. These darling tops are purrrfect for a day at the beach, tanning outside, or running an errand. These tops have a variety of patterns and colors making them easy to pair with any short, jean, skirt, or bikini bottom. What I love about these beauties is the fact that I can have so many yet they are all so different! My all time fave place to get crop tops currently lies at Forever 21, ranging from about $10 to $15 these spring and summer must haves are craving your closet. So come on, give in to their beauty and pick up a few. I'm sure you'll turn some heads.

After falling into a puddle today, I realized I'm sick of spring! April showers my ass. Bring on the summer! Excited as am I and want to get a head start shopping? It's not too early!

The brand I bought was Blank and I'm obsessed! So go grab a pair, slip into em and watch mouthes drop.

Let It Snow? Hell to the No

It's snowing. Yupp, last week I was stylin in my skirt and crop top and today I piled on a sweater. Come on mother nature! With the weather pmsing, helloooo chicago, i've had to adjust my wardrobe for this week. The easiest answer: layers! I can still wear my skirt but I throw it over patterned tights, grab a blazer, and slip on a scarf!

Online Shopping, Beware?

After spending hours online shopping I've come to the conclusion that my view on it is split. While the convenience that it offers, and hours I spend online, the dangers of return policies, wrong sizes, and completely incorrect merchandise, sway my positive thinking. Since I'm split down the middle, I've decided to make a pros and cons list to offer some opposing views:

1. Convenience
--Online shopping is extremely convenient and easy to do anywhere you are. Whether your on a home computer, laptop, phone, or school computer (aka my English periods), online shopping is constantly lurking in every advertising email beckoning you to take a peak and spend some moolah. It's easy to pa rouse through the endless clothes and see many things you normally wouldn't. Online shopping helps display many items that are hard to find in stores or are out of stock in stores. Convenience? So easy.

2. Variety
--Again, the variety is key. I eyed so many things I wouldn't normally pick up when shopping. When I'm shopping I usually have my eye set on one thing and tend to ignore other options. Online shopping offers all merchandise and gives you a fresh approach.

3. Fun
--Let's get down to it, its fun! It's entertaining to create outfits online and to spend hours, days for me, checking out adorable outfits. A lot of websites create look books and that inspires fashion creations for my wardrobe.

1. Addictive
--The Internet is already extremely addictive and online shopping is just part of that horrible habit. It's easy to put down your homework and open an email containing an ad. Then, you click on that ad and click on the featured outfit, then the featured accessory, then the matching shoe, and the process repeats. Don't get dragged in.

2. Return Policies
--Many online stores have iffy return policies. Check to see if you can return the item in the store, how much time you have, and what you need to return it. They'll get you if you don't take precautions.

3. Merchandise
--I've had a few incidences where I didn't receive the correct merchandise or it took weeks to come. Check to see how long it will take and if you don't get the right item be sure to complain, you deserve great service!

So, overall I've offered you both sides to online shopping. Make your choice but be careful! Happy shopping!

Circle Up: It's scarf time

Think scarves are only for winter? You thought wrong. Time to re-evaluate your fashion knowledge. I, for one, adore light fabric circle scarves in the spring. I throw them over a plain, large, white tee and tight patterned mini. Slip into a pair of slinky blacks heels and your fabu look is complete. Over, throw the scarf over a sundress, simple and stylish. Still, we are stuck in a bit cooler weather (although I'm ignoring it as much as possible), so if a sundress isn't right for you just quite yet take a look at Jessica Alba for some cooler inspiration.,,20053264,00.html#20917015

Pattern Party

Alright so after a trip to rehab at least Demi Lovato learned one thing, patterned tights are totally in. Here's Demi shopping, healthy and looking stylish, after a trip to rehab. Good for you darling, not only are you healthy but you're bursting with total chic. Lovin in. Grab a pair of pattern tights at Urban, Forever, or H&M. I just snatched a pair for $5, now that's smart shopping.,,20474596_20925670,00.html#20925674
