DeliciousAccident

I was never one to consider myself a good cook; although I can't say I make the effort. I don't find much joy being in the kitchen, (I'd much rather spend time in my closet.) Cooking also gets a bit difficult since my meat-loving boyfriend doesn't always care for my "weird" vegetarian options. Any way, I came across a delicious dressing combination recently and wanted to share the recipe with you! I stumbled across this accidentally but now I can't get enough.

You will need 4 ingredients-
1. White Balsamic Raspberry Blush Vinegar
2. Classic Hummus 3. Cinnamon 
4. Crushed Red or Black Pepper, or both!

In a bowl, combine your vinegar and hummus. Note: The more hummus, the thicker the dressing will be. Season to taste with your cinnamon and crushed pepper. Enjoy atop your favorite salad!

Quick, Healthy and Delish. My favorite kind of recipe :) Let me know how you like it!

Lucky7Denim

Jeans are a staple in most people's wardrobe; but a common habit everyone makes is wearing the same pair over and over. Below are 7 styles of denim I think everyone should have in their closet. BUT, if you don't see any of these working with your body type and you already found your "perfect" pair of denim. I advise getting that favorite pair in numerous washes so you create more diverse wardrobe and outfit options :) All of the examples below are under $100.
 Dip Dyed
Boyfriend/ Relaxed
Cuffed Ankle
 Low Rise Skinny
 Distressed
 High Wasted Skinny
Wide Leg

TheLunchBagClutch


Yes, this is real life. And totally fabulous. The lunch bag clutch is one of my current favorite items. With the floppy function of a classic brown paper bag, translated into chic leather or heavy duty suede; designers like Marie Turner and Celine are all grappling over this quick grab-bag.
Zara also has it's own version of the bag at a more affordable price. It’s such a fresh and interesting item to style.What I love most? The simplicity, and homage to the good old days.

LadyInRed

Valentine's Day is just about a month away, so why not start planning the perfect outfit to woe your loved one or finally ask out the guy you've had your eye on. Studies have taught us that RED is the color a man prefers when asked what looks best on a woman. Red is the color of love, confidence and romance. Below are a few of my favorite red V-Day options under $100. But if red's not your color, most of these outfits are available in other shades.

Lipsy Mesh Cut Out Bodycon Dress

Roses Are Red Dolman Top & Red slant bodycon skirt

CelebrityLooksForLess

Imitation is the finest form of flattery. If you're like me, I'm sure you've seen many outfits on celebrities you'd die to have in your closet, but once you look closer at the prices of the items they are wearing, it's just not possible to get their look on a reasonable budget. Below are a few stylish celebrity looks and affordable alternative/imitation pieces you can use to recreate their looks for MUCH less!
Jamie Chung
Mixing prints is easy when sticking to the same color palette. Jamie mixed her Cameo mini with a striped sweater and oversize metallic clutch.


Jessica Alba
Plum/Red Wine is a color trend I'm favoring at the moment. Jessica is wearing this head to toe plum look with her Tracy Reese turtleneck dress and Coach tote.

Kristin Cavallari

Two rules for wearing all black: Play with textures and opt for at least one formfitting piece. Kristin is sporting a boxy ribbed Helmut Lang sweater and a pair of leather Rag & Bone leather pants. A pop of color is encouraged; via bag, shoe, (or juice).



Sarah Jessica Parker
This pale pink, grey and winter white combo is one of my favorites. No rules about white jeans for Sarah, she knows exactly what she’s doing with this outfit.
