Guest Blog: Go Glam This NYE

I first developed my style crush on Megan Rutledge when we took Communication Law together last year. Every day, she waltzed into class with an outfit more colorful than the last. I envied her bold take on mixing patterns and prints. Plus, she was the proud owner of a pink sparkly laptop case—that’s soul sister material in my book. I got to know Megan better last semester in our Fashion Journalism class. I loved editing Megan’s articles, because they were so her.

California Christmas

I love the full skirt and pretty pleats on this Forever21 dress for a whimsical touch. The gold metallic threading also adds a subtle shine that I can’t get enough of.

My Guess shoes (similar) reflect the season as well. They’re a bright, memorable color but also a closet classic shape. I know I’ll be breaking them out well after the last drop of champagne and the holiday festivities are over. How do you stylishly…

‘Tis the Season for Twinkly Style

Have you gotten into the swing of the holiday season yet? I have! Tacky Christmas sweater parties are all over my calendar. Zooey Deschanel’s quirky Christmas CD is on repeat, and I’ve certainly done my fair share of holiday shopping. Now two finals are all that stand in my way from trimming the tree with my family. I also can’t wait to build a gingerbread house with my besties from back home. It’s okay if I eat our dilapidated creation as soon as it’s done, right? I can never resist fur, jewels and sequins around the holiday season. I know, I’m…
