Many fashion magazines have written articles on how to turn your office outfit into a look fit for a night on the town. However, those articles don’t take into consideration what city girls have to go through to be New York ready. We don’t have car trunks where we stash our heels and we need walking shoes, working shoes, and dancing shoes. Anything we carry with us is likely going to be toted on a bus, a subway, across a couple of avenues, and into the bar. That being said, being party ready once the clock strikes five isn’t impossible, it can even be fun if you’re creative. (And by creative, I don’t mean running into the nearest Sephora and redoing all of your makeup at the sample counter…because let’s be honest, what city girl doesn’t do that?)

You’ve received your first (of many) holiday party invitation (s). Check. You’ve started looking through your closet for what to wear. Check. You want new outfits. Check. We’re here to help make that happen, for all 100% of you (!), with our holiday style guide of affordable vs. high-end looks that will make you a show-stopper at any party you attend this season.
Pairing a sleek dress with a fun pair of sparkly heels has holiday party written all over it. We’re loving this purple satin dress from Dolce & Gabbana (left, $1,385) and these glitter platform pumps from Jimmy Choo (left, $745). Can’t quite swing the prices? Good news: find a similar look from H&M (dress, $40) and Wet Seal (heels, $30) for a fraction of the cost. Throw in some fun accessories and you’re ready to go!
All people seem to talk about anymore is the economy, the recession, the unemployment rate, etc. It seems like all anyone can think about is financial doom! Those headlines can really get a girl down. With the shrinking job market, the student loan problem, and the weak dollar, the first thing to go for girls is the shopping. But just because you're slim on the wallet, doesn't mean your style has to suffer. Here's five great under $50 handbags for the lady on a budget. You don't need to give your Starbucks up just yet!
Fergie recently stepped out looking summer-rock-n-roll chic in a skin-hugging Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, cropped embellished leather jacket and yellow Christian Louboutin heels. She completed the look with over-sized black sunglasses and a simple black clutch.
We love the combination of flowers mixed with a rock edge. This look is also very versatile and could work year around. We're conservatively estimating Fergie's look is coming in around $2500 to $3000 -a stiff number for most ladies out there. Our version comes in around $300 -all style, less cost!
With Miami Fashion Week coming up, we've been getting a bit antsy with anticipation. Instead of sitting around and counting the days until our fashion cravings will finally be satisfied, we decided to see what else was going on in the South Florida fashion world in the mean time. That's when we heard about The Red Stiletto Strut--a fashion fundraiser for the awareness of women and heart disease. Not only would the event give us an excuse to strap on our devilish red pumps, but a red shoe bar and fashion presentation all for a good cause? Yes, please. From raffle prizes that almost seemed too good to be true, to tasty hors d’oevres courtesy of Blue Martini and Piñon Grill, The Red Stiletto Strut squeezed some much needed fashion into our February.
The military trend has hit the streets hard. Everywhere I look in the city, lace-up, military-inspired boots are appearing on the feet of even the most girliest of girls.
These boots are being paired with literally everything and anything that comes out of a closet. Leggings, skinnies, and floral dresses are just a few companions of these masculine must-haves.
Try them out for yourself, skip your usual pumps and give your favorite dress a casual edge - or for a subtle look, pair them with skinnies and your favorite fall sweater.
Don't be afraid, this is not another fat Elvis costume with a tacky white jumpsuit. We love young, hunky Elvis, so what better outfit to mimic than his famous head-to-toe leather?
And lucky for the last minute ladies, this get-up can be put together with a few faux favorites:
1.The faux-leather jacket: It can be real leather or a fabulous faux. Just slip it on over a black tank and you're already halfway done!
2. The pants: Faux-leather leggings are everywhere this fall. Wherever your shopping may lead you, Forever 21 to Bloomingdales, you are sure to find a pair. They are a perfect way to womanize your Elvis look.
