    Wearing anything with hearts is always super chic, and V-Day is no exception! We thought this sweater was so cute with the sequin heart elbow patches. Best yet, you can wear it again and again after Valentine's Day is over!

  • The Carrie Diaries Premiere

    Sex and the City is back, but with a little bit of a twist! Did you catch the premiere of the new CW TV Show The Carrie Diaries last night? It's all about Sex and the City protagonist Carrie Bradshaw, but back when she was in high school in 1984.

    While the show is technically a prequel to Sex and the City, don't expect the new show to be SATC all over again. Just like the original, Carrie Bradshaw is nothing short of a bubbly blonde aspiring writer who loves shopping, shoes, and of course, the big city. But, this show is an entirely different, yet just as fun drama that's a great watch whether or not you're a super fan of SATC.

    And, if nothing else, who doesn't love the '80s?? The show is full of a perfect mixture of old and new, with the cast wearing '80s inspired outfits that we'd rock right now if we could get our hands on them! So, just like the original, the show doesn't disappoint in the fashion department. And, the soundtrack combines some great retro tunes with brand new songs. Check out some photos from the show below - they remind us of the fashion trends that are in style right now!

    Pictured (L-R): Katie Findlay as Maggie, Brendan Dooling as Walt, Ellen Wong as Mouse, AnnaSophia Robb as Carrie, Austin Butler as Sebastian, and Freema Agyeman as Larissa.
    Neon jeans are definitely a popular trend right now.
    We'd rock this for Homecoming or Prom any day.

    If you missed the pilot episode this week, no worries - I'm sure there will be many re-runs on TV! You can also already watch the full episode online on The CW's website! The show will be airing every Monday at 8pm EST, so just make sure to catch up before next week.

    If you caught the premiere last night, leave us a comment and let us know what you thought!

    College Fashion 2012 One major thing to remember about college is that your night life might be a lot different from your daytime routine.  Since you’ll want to look cute all the time, try buying a few basic wardrobe items that can be versatile.  For example: a blazer can be worn with skinny jeans or over a dress.  Basic tank tops are always useful to wear under clothes or on their own, and so are fitted tees.  Layering clothes is always popular In College because it can lead to a ton of different outfit combinations.  Bring some cardigans or sweaters that you can throw on overtop of your shirts once it gets cooler out, so that your warmer clothes can still get some use in the Fall.

    However fashionable your outfit may be, once the cold air rolls in this November most of your classmates will only be seeing your fall or winter coat while you walk around campus.  Seventeen magazine mentions that buying a “stunning coat” for college can make you stand out.  Avoid the basic black peacoat this year and get something a little more colorful.  Try out a new pattern or take a risk with a brightly colored coat to make a fashion statement at college.
