Photo by MegElizabeth_ Today I want to talk about something that I see in girls who are just out of high school all the time – thinking that they love “fashion” when really the mass-market retail world has blinded them to what real style is all about. This is something I like to call “The A&F Trap.” Fashion Beyond Abercrombie & Fitch (or How to Develop Your Own Style)
Fashion Inspiration: How to Find Your Celebrity Fashion Muse Today I want to talk about fashion inspiration. Sometimes it can be difficult to come up with new outfits, and I often get asked about how you’re supposed keep up with it all. In an industry where everything changes every other day, how do you stay inspired without buying a whole new wardrobe weekly? There’s a lot of creativity involved in fashion – even if it’s just in choosing how you wear the few basic pieces you have. Just like artists and writers look for inspiration to keep their creativity flowing, fashionistas need inspiration too!

Of all the new TV shows that premiered this fall, I have to say my favorite is Fox’s New Girl. In case you haven’t seen it yet, the show follows Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel), a 20-something teacher who finds herself living with three male roommates after answering an ad on Craigslist. Jess’ quirky, bubbly and somewhat over-the-top personality sends the guys for a loop, while Jess deals with adjusting to life as the new girl. Not only is the show hilarious, the characters lovable and the theme song ridiculously catchy (I dare you to listen to it and not have it stuck in your head for the next two days!)

For example, someone from SoCal might think that 60 degree weather is “freezing”, but a Midwesterner wouldn’t even call that temperature chilly. Cold, Colder, Coldest: 4 Layered Looks for Winter
