Fashion Bloggers You Aren’t Following and Really Should Be

By Cristina Estupiñán
October 25, 2014 - 11:30am

Fashion bloggers seem to be dominating the fashion world. Their instagrams are flawless, they have their own clothing lines, and they have impeccable style. Although trends come and go, these bloggers seem to stay on top. Here are some blogs that influence my style today.   Man Repeller Leandra Medine, aka Man Repeller, is by far my favorite blogger. She started blogging while still in college, and her posts all follow the same theme: women should dress for themselves, and not for anyone else. She’s not afraid of color, and all of her outfits are rather daring. She’s got a shoe line with Superga. It’s a hilarious website for serious fashion....

Many women are well educated about style. They know what outfits flatter their figures best and what hair colors suit their skin tones. Many women, though, are making one big mistake every day: they’re wearing the wrong bra. And wearing the wrong bra essentially turns even the best outfit to crap. I was a sales associate at Victoria’s Secret this summer, and although I was only working there for the summer, I feel as though I have gained a lot of insight on the way bras should look and feel for all women.

Denim for Days

One thing I am absolutely positive about in life is that jeans will never go out of style. Trust me, they just won't. Even 9,000 years from now, when the world is ending, we will all be wearing jeans. The analogy I use to best explain the importance of jeans is their similarity with pizza. Pizza has been around forever and I believe 99% of the world loves it. There used to be just the basics; cheese, pepperoni, veggie etc. Nowadays there are more types of pizza than shoes in my closet (that is a lot). They even have breakfast and dessert pizzas! Jeans are the same way. No, there are no breakfast or dessert jeans (although I tend to wear my stretchiest pair during these meals) but there are so many different styles available....

Thanksgiving is a month away. Christmas is over ten weeks away. So, why bother looking at tickets to go home now? Thanksgiving is the busiest travel period of the year. Ticket prices rise exponentially by the day during this time, so booking early is better. First, decide the best method of travel. Are you close enough to go home by bus? Train? Do you have to take a flight, or will your parents pick you? All of these are important factors in planning your travel. READ MORE

How to Go Shampoo Free

By Meredith Hauser

  Call me a victim of the beauty bandwagon, but when I first learned about the “no shampoo” method from my roommate, it struck a chord with my natural-loving, hippie-tending, DIY-obsessed self. In addition to being 100% natural, cruelty free and a mere fraction of the price that shampoo and conditioner cost, my hair looks better than ever, which is nothing short of a miracle considering my natural hair texture (thick and wavy) has a propensity for major frizzy-ness. Turns out, much of that is cause of all the sulfate (pretty much any ingredient ending in “–ate”) that shampoos and conditioners contain! READ MORE
