becca recently gave me an old dress of hers (pictured left) and I finally got to wear it last week. Clothes swapping is common among our friends. We're all different sizes, and, like most women, those sizes fluctuate. Whenever we get together, at least one person has a bag of clothes. Other people have told me they raid the closets of friends and family.
With holiday parties coming up, now is a great time to shop your friends' closets. Instead of each of you spending money on a cocktail dress, you could swap little-worn party frocks.
October is the perfect month for anyone who loves a dramatic look. Because of Halloween, you can get away with more in the makeup department than you can the rest of the year. You want to try false eyelashes? Go for it. You want to color your eyebrows? Do it. Color outside the lines with eyeshadow? Why not?

What we looked like in 2009 Ten years ago I created, Fashion Me Fabulous, wrote up a handful of posts, picked a layout and send it all to my friend, Jael. “I’ve started a fashion blog. What do you think?” She gave me a few tips, wrote a couple “guest posts” and before long became my blogging partner. Together, we built a blog and community I could have never built alone.

We learned all sorts of things about coding and websites and content and graphic design and so on. (You can tell if you look at
I've been waiting Anthropologie's ruffled bra and panty set to go on sale. What it lacks in the sex appeal of Anya's retro ensemble , it makes up for in cute ribbons and ruffles. The set is available in cream and pink , rose and black, or grey and black , but I prefer the dark of the latter to offset the sweetness of the look. The bra was $58, which is silly for a cotton, wireless sleep bra, but the price has dropped to $29.95. That's at least worth thinking about. $30 for panties , however, is still laughable.
