  • Back to School Essentials

    Labor Day has passed and the official start of Fall is only weeks away, so it's definitely time to get Back-t0-School ready. And, what does Back-to-School mean? New clothes and fashion essentials, of course! So what are the hottest must have items that you should have in your backpack? And, what backpack should you even get??

    Your backpack is definitely an essential, as it's something that you will see and carry everyday of the week. So, let's start there! Since it's a fashion staple that you'll be carrying day in, day out, we definitely recommend making sure that you find one that you love (and that's practical, too, of course). With that said, don't be afraid go wild when it comes to choosing the perfect one. Teen Vogue recently put out a list of their Top 100 Backpacks for Back-to-School, and we're oogling over all of them! But, we narrowed it down from their long list to our favorites to make the decision a little easier for you.

    We like the bright plain bags because they are simple, fun, and easy to match with outfits.

    For the divas out there, we love the above recommendations from Teen Vogue. They're totally glammed out and will be sure to make a statement! If you love any of these backpacks, you can find all of the details for buying them in Teen Vogue's article.

    So with all of the technology these days you probably have an iPhone, iPod and/or laptop. These are all great products and also helps cut down the study time because of all the great resources they provide and on-the-go ability to do work. We love that you can download even your school books onto your devices; it's a perfect way to go green by saving paper and money! Also not having all those books in your bag makes your backpack a heck of lot lighter; no more breaking your back with a library of books, just download them!

    So, if you're a gadget geek like us, why not glam up your tech essentials? We love to see all the funky cool cases and they are a must have to show off your personality and style. If nothing else, they're great conversation starters for meeting new friends! Since we love pink and animal print, of course those are our go-to choices. But, there's plenty of different styles to choose from when it comes to dressing up (and protecting) your gadgets! Below are some of our favorites - all easily findable via Goole searches and Amazon!

    Of course you are going to need the basics such as notebooks, pens, pencils, highlighters, flash drives, and your organizer/planner. Always make sure that your backpack is stocked with these items because they are a definite must-have on school property. When shopping for these seemingly boring items, make it fun and pick out items that suite your personality. Just like the gadget protectors above, there's plenty of ways to add a personal touch to your stationary essentials, too.

    While it's always fun to add a chic touch to anything and everything, just remember that school is for learning, so do your best job to pay attention and get a good education. Keep those grades up and your confidence even higher! Good luck guys and make this school year a good one!

  • Shoe Love - Advice on Formal Shoe Shopping

    Shoes Shoes Shoes Shoes!!!!

    Every girl out there loves shoe shopping, and what's the problem with that?  Shoes are the perfect accessory, go with you everywhere, and make you feel confident and stylish! The perfect pair of shoes can really make an outfit incredible, so when shoe shopping you need to make a commitment to the shoes you buy.  Here are some tips on buying a pair of high heels for your formal event.

    When buying shoes for a formal event, always take into consideration your dress.  If you have a fancy, elaborate dress, then you’ll want a plain pair of shoes so that your style isn’t too overwhelming.  A basic black, white, or silver pair of high heels with a touch of sparkle should do the trick.  For dresses that aren’t as fanciful, get creative with your shoe choice!

    Lately a popular style has been to pair colorful shoes with little black dresses.  Worn with a black dress, bright pink or yellow pumps with matching accessories will add a fun pop to your outfit.  For a formal occasion like a wedding, Homecoming or Prom you might want your shoes to match the color of your dress.  In that case you can purchase a pair of white shoes and have them dyed.  If you don’t want to go through the trouble of getting your shoes dyed, then stick to the basics of shoe matching.  Never mix black with navy blue, go for a silver shoe if the color of your dress is hard to match, and only pick white shoes if you’re wearing a light colored dress.

    Considering the height of a pair of high heels can be a big factor too.  If you’re a heel veteran, than you might not have to worry when picking out a 4” tall pair of heels.  For those not so accustomed to wearing high heels, aim for finding a pair that are a little bit closer to the ground.  You can still look just as cute in a pair of heels that are 2-3” tall.
