January Favorites

I’m loving all of the OOTD photos y’all have been emailing me (styledbysteph@aol.com)! I’ll be sure to post one soon! :)

1) DISfunkshion Magazine

I had never heard of this magazine until recently, but it’s amazing. It looks kind of homeade and has very artsy photography. All of my friends loved it as well and I even looked over and saw my dad looking at some of the photography. It is somewhat similar to Company Magazine (that I featured in my August favorites article) although it has more photography and Company has more articles.

2) How to Look Expensive by Andrea Pomerantz Lustig

This book had great tips on how to look amazing on a budget. My favorite part is that it has a huge section after each chapter with her favorite drugstore dupes. I have tried out some of the products she mentioned and loved all of them. She is the Editor in Chief for Glamour Magazine so she has a ton of experience with different beauty products. I’m definitely going to reread it next time I need new makeup. Continue Reading

Don’t forget to check out Serena’s and Jenny’s look if you missed it! Blair’s looks is by far my favorite. She always looked classy and rocked the preppy look.

blair waldorf coats, outfits, styledbysteph96, gossip girlIn the fall and winter, Blair almost always wears coats or capes of some kind. She never wears plain ones though. They are always either bright or have some funky detail.

She likes to wear bright tights with her outfits and a handbag that matches. She never wore jeans, but she occasionally wore leggings or pants.

Sorority Rush Outfit Ideas: Bid Day Dresses

This is the last post in my rush week series. If you missed any of the previous articles check them out here: round 1, round 2, round 3, and round 4 (preference round).

Most sororities have their new members wear white on bid day so they all match for pictures.

Try to avoid anything too revealing or any off-white shade that might not match well in the pictures.
