Welcome back to Fashion Philosophy! This week, by popular demand, we’ll be talking about Queen Victoria and Victorian fashion in general.
I usually cover people and styles and I enjoy, but I’ll admit that Victorian style isn’t my cup of tea. I find it too elaborate and my own experiences with scoliosis have left me with a negative bias towards corsets.
Stuck for what to get your blog-obsessed fashionista ladyfriend? We’ve put together a handy (and only slightly tongue-in-cheek) guide to some of the top blogger must-haves that’ll keep her sweet. You won’t go far doing the rounds of the personal style blogs without stumbling across these babies, so if your girl has her own style blog – big or small – we’re sure she’d love to receive anything on this list come Valentine’s Day. That is, if she doesn’t have them all already…
1. A Rose Gold Watch
Gone are the days of checking your phone when you need the time, or investing in timeless, subtle timepieces. Now a blogger needs a statement watch to go with her neon Zara friendship bracelets and cool little finds from Henri Bendel and Kate Spade. Right now, that means a Michael Kors (£239) or a Marc by Marc Jacobs (unless her name begins with a G, in which case you have to go with Guess). Just look at the amount of these babies that have been added to pinterest boards for more proof that this is a trend that’s going nowhere. A good watch coupled with good accessories will allow your girl to take pics like this, and you’ll get uber brownie points for ramping up her arm candy quota.
Welcome back to Dressing for Your Body, Which Happens to be Awesome (known in some circles as DFYBWHTBA — we’re working on a better acronym). You’ve learned how to dress your long legs, your boobs of any size, and your fantastic butt. You’ve laughed, you’ve cried, you’ve listened to India.Arie’s Video on repeat, and now you embrace your body type with all your heart, right?
Well, maybe not yet. But even if not, I am here to help, showing you ways to dress your bangin’ bod (and trust me, it is bangin’) while loving your body, not trying to trick people into thinking it’s different.
While she may not always appear on the show, Alison Dilaurentis has definitely made an impression on Pretty Little Liars fans like myself – not only for her mysterious disappearance and death, but also for her peculiar personality. On the surface, she might just seem like another teen girl obsessed with popularity, but beneath those gorgeous blonde locks is a darker side to Rosewood’s former queen bee. Each week, I’m intrigued by all of the secrets her four best friends continue to uncover about Ali and her past.
Though she’s not in every episode, when Ali does appear on the show – whether in a flashback scene or an eerie ghost-like encounter with one of the girls – she always looks absolutely flawless. Her style is girly with a bit of an edge. She loves wearing dresses and blouses with pumps or pretty wedges, and many of these pieces feature floral prints and shades of pink. But like her personality, her wardrobe isn’t strictly sweet.

In the makeup-melting heat, I prefer to sit inside with the air conditioning on full blast, an iced tea in my hand, and the TV on. Summer is the best time to catch up on all the shows that I missed during the school year while I was, umm… studying.
Looks from Books is a new biweekly column offering solid proof that you can look smart, while still being book-smart as well!
Fashion inspiration can be found between the lines of your favorite stories, well-designed book covers, and awesome characters… if you read closely enough. Classic literature, fun chic lit, YA novels, sci-fi, childhood faves, graphic novels, fairy tales, Shakespeare — if the book is in print, then there’s a good chance I’ll be covering outfits inspired by the letters on the page! Suggestions and feedback are always welcome. Enjoy, and read on!
For our very first edition of Looks from Books, we’re focusing on Anna Brashares’s series The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Even though most of us read these books years ago, stories of friendship and girl power are always great. These books are still fun beach reads to share and lend amongst your girlfriends. Plus, any book with a pair of kickin’ denim jeans on the cover and four teenage girls as main characters is a clear choice for some great fashion inspiration. Let’s check it out!
Now that school’s out, I’ve been using my free time to reconnect with old friends. When I called up my friend Danielle to catch up and chat, I started thinking about our growth from children (we became best friends in the fifth grade and were absolutely inseparable) to adults (we’re now at totally different colleges studying incredibly different things).
When I saw her for the first time this summer, it was clear her sense of style had also matured! So, today’s LOC post is all about Danielle’s sweet summer style and a celebration of all of our childhood friendships.
Every week, I scour the web to find inspiring outfits on your favorite celebs and help you recreate their looks! This week, I was inspired by Jennifer Lawrence, Lauren Conrad, and Mollie King. Read on to see how you can get their looks for yourself.
