Bag Borrow or Steal

Want a pretty new fall designer bag without spending all of your tuition money? Check out, which rents out bags for a weekly or monthly fee. I've never signed up...has anyone had any success with it? I'm eyeing this Prada one for 77 bucks a week.

Remember when you were a kid and they had those shoes that lit up when you walked? Or when you were a teenager and they had clear prom shoes with neon lights in the heel?

These are like the classier version of both of those. Unfortunately class costs $2,200.

Frye Boots = Orgasm

Earlier this year I saw a girl with super-cute boots and complimented her on them, asking where she got them. When she asked me if I'd heard of Frye boots before and I said no, she looked at me like I was totally out of it. Now I know why...Frye boots rock- the styling is basic but trendy and the leather is gorgeous. The Owen Lace-Ups above are amazing- they fit with my tough feminine look. Unfortunately they are $298 and I doubt there's a replica this sexy. I did just shell out some big bucks on my first Nikon though, and I'm so excited!! Once in comes in the mail I'll be the biggest shutterbug ever- I'm dying to create an amazing Flickr account. But I digress.

America's Next Top Model Episode 2

I’m a bit ashamed of it, but I’m really getting into the 11th season of America’s Next Top Model. Right now I’m absolutely in love with Marjorie and her look. She’s such a sweetheart- like a blonde version of Audrey Tautou. (I did try to find a better picture of her than the one above...I'm not crazy about the high waisted overalls and spikier hair.)

Although I should probably be coming on fashion rather than personality, Clark and Hannah drive me insane. Clark seems very bland and ditzy, while Hannah needs to be more open-minded and get over herself.

And while I like Sheena, I’m glad they pointed out her fake breasts…but it makes me wonder how many of the other contestants have had plastic surgery. I feel like there are a lot more unique, unusual faces in the competition, instead of just pretty ones.

If only men came in flavors like Dulce De Leche

Along with fashion, I have an obsession with healthy snack food. One of my greatest healthy loves? I have adored Luna bars for years- unlike some "energy bars" they taste AH-mazing. Seriously. I would trade in my Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for a Luna bar & that's saying something. Dulce de Leche & Chai Tea are my favorites, but Cookies 'n' Cream & Chocolate Raspberry are good as well. All of these flavors are pretty sweet & almost candy bar-like, but I'd really sugar-sensitive and I can still eat these for breakfast without getting an annoying sugar buzz.
I'm also currently OBSESSED with these sugar-free, vegan chocolate chip cookies from Whole Foods (aka Whole Paycheck). The words sugar-free & vegan might not sound promising to all of you (as well as the fact that they contain tofu), but I they taste just as good, if not better, than "normal" cookies. I hope they sell them at your local Whole Foods too, because they are phenomenal.

This isn't meant as a big advertisement or anything. (Although I would appreciate it if someone from Luna read this & sent me a free liftetime supply. Hehe. How 'bout it?) Just like I don't want you to miss out on great fashion, I don't want you to miss out on great food!

I've been reading "Skinny Bitch" lately & they have great suggestions for other snacks. I'm considering the vegan lifestyle, even though I don't think I could give up tilapia & salmon. It'd be a good time in my life to try it though, as my college's food is pretty vegan-friendly.

Not really feelin' it


Zzzzzz. I love the Brits & I love cheap, cool clothes. But TopShop has always bored me. It's the same stuff you find at the Gap. Yeah, the Kate Moss stuff is cool, but for those prices you could get way better pieces. Does Kate Moss really have a say in that stuff?

TopShop is like that guy you've dated. Everyone raves about him and he seems really interesting and hard-to-get. But then you end up with him and are bored.

New do for Posh!

Check it here. I love it. Time for her to mix things 49-year-old mom's best friend just tried to get the same haircut as Victoria Beckham. When something becomes that popular, ditch it.

I've tried to pull this short of a look off, but it didn't work. I love that girl Marjorie on "America's Next Top Model". Love her, love her. She's like a sweet, French version of Agyness Deyn.

Fashion rocks, 'Fringe' sucks

Because I can't be front row at all of the exciting Fashion Week shows, I'm currently watching "Fringe". And it sucks. Like "The X-Files", but bad. (Possibly because it lacks the sexiness of Mulder.)

If you can't go to fashion week either, check out this link: NY Times Fashion Week. As usual, the New York Times does it best. And as usual, autumn is the best season, for clothes and everything else. Maybe I've been in school too long, but for me it always seems like the real start of a new year.

A note to all college girls

Dear College Girl on Monday Morning,

Yeah, I know you're still hungover from Sig Ep's party on Friday. But that doesn't mean you should walk into French IV twenty minutes late in your sloppy jeans and dirty Uggs with no makeup on. Remember all of those boys that asked for your number Friday night? Well, you could snag a few more today if you play your fashion cards right...& these might actually be worthwhile- sober men who show up to class.

I'm not saying you have to wear a D&G skirt or anything...but what about some nice colored denim just to keep things interesting? The lovely pair pictured is only $32.50 at Alloy. Throw them on with some non-Ugg boots, a well-fitted tee & a bit of lipstick. I'll be as happy as I was when I got that unexpected A in Russian Film.

Flowers are nice, floral accessories are better

Of course I appreciate it when guys give me flowers, but it sucks when they die after a few days. I'd prefer if they gave me something floral but eternal- like this delicious Valentino Petale Tote perhaps? OK, so it costs $2,395 rather than $50 for a dozen roses...but it was made in Italy & comes in red AND black!! Proof that florals are not just for spring- keep them around as the weather changes.
