Pretty Little Liars "The Dress Code" Featurette

My favorite character's style on this show is Spencer...I get a lot of styling ideas from watching this show:)
Here is more information about the stylist, Mandi Line. She's also styled shows like: Greek, Cookers, The Crow, and Humble Pie.

Joe Zee is so entertaining! I can't wait to see him on his new show on Sundance Channel

The girls from The City might not have a show anymore...but, Joe Zee is coming strong!  I can't wait to see his show...Not sure how I feel about Whitney Port's show yet...doesn't sound very fashion-y...and didn't Olivia Palermo say she had something in the works?  I would definitely watch it!  Well, until we find out get some fashion laughs from Joe Zee:)

I'm feeling the LOVE from Lucky magazine

You are going to want this! Angela Caputi Tortoise Chain Link Bracelet

I spotted this bracelet today and the swap party that I went to and I had to have it!  I, of course also had to share it with everyone.  The fashion friend that shared the info said she had seen it on The, if you want to check it out.  She found two different options.  The prices aren't that BIG...but, there are a few dollars to save if you can wait.  Sadly, the budget friendly is out of stock right now...but, if you can't's worth it!

How are you going to rock this?  I'm loving how the fashionista on The Sartorialist layered it with other not so expected bracelets.

How to style a crop top

I spotted a crop top at American Eagle Outfitters yesterday (sadly, I couldn't find it online yet) and I kept myself from buying it because I wasn't sure if it was "appropriate" for a mommy.  But, when I got home I had received the Free People catalog and was so inspired and decided I could still rock one.  This cropped tank looks more like a bralette or a bustier maybe...but, I still love the idea.  It reminds me of the 50's.  So here are a couple of ideas for how to style a crop top.

1.  High waisted skirt: I have a few of these and LOVE them!  I usually wear them with tops tucked in.  But, I thought this style skirt would be perfect for a crop top.  Skin will barely show where the fabrics meet.

2.  The long tank: I saw this in the Free People catalog and they did a lot of layering...but, I thought you could keep it simple and just add the long tank for coverage, but still have the focus on the cropped top.

3.  The maxi dress: I think that this would be genius!  I am all about the maxi dress and this is a great way to make the look a little more dramatic.

4.  The high waisted pants: You could do this with high waisted jeans, but I thought it would be a little more funky with this style pant.  The belt adds the drama too.
