  • College Dorm Room Must Haves!

    For those girls getting ready to take the giant leap off to college in the Fall, you have a million things running through your minds. From picking out your classes and trying to get to know your new roommate, to shopping and attempting to pack the 18 years worth of stuff you have accumulated in a few boxes, your head is spinning. Now is the time to put everything aside and really make sure you have the most important, absolutely cannot live without, items to take with you in order to help make your dorm room a livable space. It is better to be prepared so you can arrive in your new environment as stress free as possible! We did some searching and thought these were the top college dorm room must haves for any new girl on campus!

    1. Extra Long Sheets and Bed Raisers

    There is nothing worse than seeing the bed you will be sleeping in for the next year and realizing the sheets you bought were for a regular twin size bed. Be sure to get extra long (soft) sheets and probably a mattress pad if you want to sleep well. Bed raisers are a space and life saver when it comes to dorm rooms. Some raisers now come with other functionality like power and USB outlets included in one of the raisers! Brilliant!

    2. Flip Flops and Caddy for the Shower

    Yes, sharing a bathroom with several people can be a horrifying thought at first, especially if you were privileged enough to never have to. However, you can avoid feeling any discomfort by buying a pair of non-slip flip-flops to shower in, and a cute shower caddy to conveniently carry all of your rub-a-dub goodies so nothing gets lost or goes MIA. Don't make the mistake of leaving your expensive products in the communal bathroom!

    3. Over the Door Vanity with Mirror and Extra Hooks

    We promise, this is one dorm room essential you may not have thought of, but will save you so much hassle! You will have a place to do your makeup, organize beauty supplies, hang jewelry, scarves, keys, or whatever you would like! The over-the-door feature will keep everything securely in place, while saving space and allowing your desk to be clutter free and used for what it's supposed to...studying!

    4. Mini Fridge and Personal Utensils

    Having a miniature fridge and eating utensils in your dorm room is a necessity! Even though you may be eating at the dining hall when you can, it is important to keep healthy snacks on hand at all times. Having a fridge will save you money because you can go to the local market and buy bottled water, fruit, yogurt, or any of your favorites and keep them in your room instead of running to a vending machine or local pizza place whenever you get hungry. The dining hall may not be open all the time so keep this dorm room must have on your list, especially if you play sports or stick to a particular diet.

    5. Organizational Dry Erase Board

    With so much going on in your new college lifestyle, it can be hard to keep track of exams, papers, socials, and everyday stuff. This is why we suggest getting some type of organizational board to hang on your dorm room wall to keep track of your busy schedule. Something with a dry erase board is perfect because you can easily keep track of daily tasks like tests or meetings, as well as weekly things like parties, laundry, shopping lists etc. Having one of these is having your schedule mapped out right in front of you, so no task will be missed.

    Now that you have the essentials for your dorm room, you can focus on the fun part of Fall, like shopping for your first homecoming dress for your new school! With so many parties and socials ahead, you will be busier then you can ever imagine, but you will be happy you have these dorm room essentials in your arsenal to keep you organized and stress free!

  • The Walking Dead Star Emily Kinney in Tony Bowls & Sherri Hill!

    Have you been watching The Walking Dead endlessly in October to get amped up for Halloween? We have! Well, we have another place to get your The Walking Dead fix: in the October 2013 issue of Glamoholic Magazine. Why? Because actress Emily Kinney, who plays Beth Greene on The Walking Dead, was featured in the magazine wearing none other than two of our favorite designers: Tony Bowls and Sherri Hill!

    Emily Kinney in Tony Bowls TS11367

     In the above photo, she's seen wearing Tony Bowls Shorts style TS11367, a sleeveless slim sequin mesh short dress with large novelty stones, a "V" front and back neckline, and nude color side panels. It's a stunning cocktail dress that's perfect for Homecoming, Prom, or the Holidays.

    "If acting is my passion, then song-writing is sort of a steady best friend."

  • Laura Marano's Guide to a Perfect Homecoming

    Homecoming Season is here! To ensure your special night goes perfectly, Twist Magazine recently chatted with Laura Marano, star of shows Without a Trace, Back to You, and Austin and Ally. Why did Twist catch up with Laura for a little Homecoming advice? Because she definitely knows a thing or two about getting dressed up for formal events!

    laura-marano-homecoming-style

    Here's the tips she revealed to the magazine to make sure your night is perfect:

    1. Be confident: "I think the most important tip is to wear what you feel comfortable in. If it's not 'in' — like the current trend or style — but you still love it, you should 100 percent wear it. I think if you love a dress and you feel comfortable in it, then that's the dress for you."

    2. Consider your dress' length: "I think homecoming and winter formal dances [call for] shorter dresses. Prom is a big long dress scenario," the Austin & Ally star explains. "At the same time, if you're like me and love to dance at parties, you want to make sure the length is appropriate. There's nothing like having a super-short dress and being uncomfortable all night in it — that's actually the worst thing ever. So even though homecoming dresses are fun and short, make sure you feel comfortable with the length."

    3. Have fun dressing up: "My school has a certain homecoming theme, and I think you can always have fun with a theme," Laura says. "For freshman year we had H2-Homecoming — it was a water theme. I wore a Betsy Johnson dress that reminded me of a mermaid. I thought it was awesome because it kind of went with the theme."

    We especially love the dress she's wearing in the above picture, because it's a perfect look and length for Homecoming, just as she recommends. For a similar dress for your Homecoming dance, try Tony Bowls TS21312. It's a chiffon short a-line cocktail dress with illusion cap sleeves and bateau neckline.

    Tony Bowls TS21312

    Why else are we loving Laura's look and advice? Because she's a Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF ambassador! What a great cause to support, and with Homecoming and Halloween season here, we're supporting her all the way!

  • Steal Nina Dobrev's Ombre Style!

    It's Fall, The Vampire Diaries Season Premiere was last night, and The Originals' had their show premiere earlier this week! We are most definitely back into the Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder, and Paul Wesley spirit!

    One thing that we're always loving is Nina's style. Not only does she wear some killer styles on The Vampire Diaries, but she never disappoints off-screen, either. Seventeen Magazine posted a picture of Nina all ready for the Fall months, wearing a leather jacket and purple ombre jeans that we're totally crushing over. She looked so chic, and we just can't get over the ombre look!

    nina-dobrev-ombre-trend

    We love the ombre trend! It's a look you can pull off year-round, and wear from your day-to-day style to your next formal event. Want to bring Nina's style to Homecoming or Prom? Check out our favorite purple ombre looks below, and click here to shop all ombre dresses.

    Dave_and_Johnny_8725

    For a cute short purple ombre look for Homecoming, we love Dave & Johnny style 8725. The dress has spaghetti straps and an exaggerated sweetheart neckline. The jewels and elegant beadwork all throughout the bodice gives the dress such an opulent look.

    La Femme 17004

    For a deep to light purple bold look like Nina's jeans, it's all about La Femme style 17004! It's a gorgeous ombre chiffon gown with criss-cross designs across the sweetheart neckline. This simple and elegant dress lets the ombre speak for itself, the same way that Nina let her pants speak for themselves by pairing them with a plain black shirt and jacket.

    Jovani 6432

    For a fun and sparkly look, we're obsessed with Jovani style 6432. It's a strapless ball gown with a mirrored sequin bodice and ombre skirt. It's a perfect way to really have a stand-out look!
