Prom is a rite of passage for teenage girls, and it’s often dreamt about for weeks and months before the big event. Looking for a prom dress at a thrift store isn’t probably the first thought for teens, but with prom dresses costing upward of $500, it can be a serious pinch on a high-schooler’s piggy bank.
Let’s be real. For most of the country, this winter has been a wild one. Snow, ice, flooding, winds, cooler-than-average temps. We’re ready to escape to the sunshine and warm breezes. Who’s with us?
When your mind has been on sweaters, sweatpants and staying warm, it’s so refreshing to think about breezy dresses and fun tanks.

According to the International Women’s Day website, March 8 is a “global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women while also marking a call to action for accelerating gender balance.”
It’s no secret that women have been striving for equality forever. Equality in pay, equality in qualification, and equality in education and opportunities. Barriers like resources and attitudes exist in every country. On International Women’s Day, these issues are brought to the forefront of thought and openly talked about.
Simply put: The more diverse we are, the more successful we are. On this International Women’s Day, we celebrate you — all of you. You are unique. You are strong. You are beautiful, and you should be celebrated.
Jeans are a wardrobe staple, there’s no doubt about it. They are seasonless, versatile, durable, classic, trendy, ageless, you name it.
For several years now, skinny jeans have been the “it” thing. They slim. They balance out the blousy tops. They are flattering. We get it, but it’s time to branch out, girlfriends. It’s time to hit refresh and these new trendy jeans are proof of that.

Monochromatic means “single color.” There are a lot of perks to wearing a monochromatic look. It’s simple. It takes away the challenge of finding coordinating pieces in the perfect colors. You can build an outfit that is just as striking as if you were wearing a bold print, and the finished product looks uber-classy. This is also a great way to really show off some statement jewelry because it becomes the attention-grabbing piece when worn with a solid backdrop. Wearing a monochromatic outfit also can be very slimming and it can make you look taller (yes, please). You’d be hard-pressed to find another outfit combo that can look as chic as a monochromatic look.

We have some fabulous and affordable maternity clothes that will get you from month three to birth and beyond and can show you ways to make your money stretch like your belly.
The rule of three is the concept that groupings of three are more aesthetically pleasing, humorous and effective than groups of other things. Think about it: everything works better in threes: home décor, slogans and catchphrases, design, landscaping. Oh, heck, there were even three little pigs! The rule of three is widely used in everything from art and photography to comedy and literature, but it’s an easy trick that also can be applied to your wardrobe to create chic and stylish outfits.

The cold is upon us, even if we refuse to believe it. Depending on where you live, winter can mean something different. Several weeks, or months (sad face), of cold temps, brisk winds and in some cases, that four letter word that starts with s. Battle those less-than-pleasant temps with appropriate winter coats for your region.
