  • Dress of the Week: La Femme 22061 + Accessories!

    With only one day down, and only today and tomorrow to go for our Shoes and Accessories Sale, we thought we'd have a little mix and match fun! We picked out one of our favorite summer to fall transitional dresses, La Femme style 22061, and paired it with shoes and accessories that complete the look for perfection.

    La Femme 22061

    La Femme 22061, one of La Femme's new Fall 2015 dresses, is such a classic look, with just the right amount of edge, that you can wear it to so many different events, from Homecoming to to a night out with your besties. So, with all of our shoes and accessories at 20% off through the end of Friday, August 21st, we thought this was a great time to show you how you can pair the little black dress with the perfect extras for a completed head-to-toe look.

    Since La Femme 22061 is an LBD, this is one dress that's easy to pair with just about any shoes, jewelry, and purse; the most important thing is to make sure the accessories match each other (more than the dress). But, since style 22061 has that classic black lace look to it with the two two-piece trend adding just the right amount of glam, we love to keep the accessories in that range, as well. Check out our favorite accessories to pair below!

    Clutch: La Regale RL22003 Stone Clutch - This glam all over stone clutch has an optional 22" drop-in chain strap and a magnetic snap closure. We love the classic black and gold colors of the clutch, with just a hint of glam added with the black stone features.

    Bracelet: Pearl Bow Bracelet - A perfectly jeweled bow bangle bracelet with elegant pearl accents. It doesn't get much more classic, classy, and so chic than this bracelet!

    High Heels: Jupiter by Touch Ups Sexy Jeweled Shoes - A stunning single soled sandal covered in wonderful black stones and features a sophisticated lamy material. Two buckles secure a thick ankle strap that provides a fashion-forward silhouette. The black stones on this heel match the black stones on the La Regale RL22003 clutch perfectly!

    We hope you not only love our Dress of the Week pick, but all of the accessories, too! Remember, to get 20% off all of our shoes and accessories through tomorrow, just use promo code MUSTHAVE at check-out.

  • Five Girls You Meet in College

    Around this time of year, I begin to get nostalgic. I think about all the people going to college, leaving home for the first time, getting to know all kinds of people and new experiences, it’s sensory overload. You can become easily overwhelmed. It’s all part of life.College Girl Holding Textbook

    Some will leave you a better person, and you will end up learning things about yourself that you never knew before. Others will test your patience, which is pretty important. Your limits will be defined during this time of your life. It is best to think of these individuals as ‘lessons’ instead of ‘jerks’.

    Many people you meet will bring out the best in you. They will bring you out of your shell and get you thinking about possibilities you never thought of before. You might even meet your future business partner. In any case, it is going to be a time when you discover more about yourself than ever before.

    Some people will be with you for life, others will fall away rather quickly. In the grand scheme of things, it may not be so important. As you arrive at your first class up until you get to your first off-campus apartment there are some people you’re likely to encounter. Continue reading

    Pretty Little Liars actress Vanessa Ray looked so glam in a so on-trend crop top and flirty skater skirt. The textured skirt with a more simple fabric top make for a perfect pair in this look.

    For a similarly styled look, featuring a sweetheart neckline top with thin shoulder straps and a skater skirt, go with La Femme style 21244. Just like Vanessa's dress, it's texture paired with a more simple fabric, except it's just flipped in this look - a textured top with a silky smooth skirt!

  • Want Alison's Dress from Last Nights Pretty Little Liars "Last Dance" Episode?

    So, we've seen the last episode before the season’s finale and the great “A” Reveal. Hopefully!!

    The girls were not permitted to attend the schools Senior Prom, due to recent events and decided to get all dolled up and have their own private prom in Spencer’s barn. Waiting for Alison to arrive they find out that she has actually gone to the school, lured by A, of course. Determined to find out who Charles is and put an end to all of the chaos, Alison throws caution to the wind and does exactly what “A”/Charles texts her to do. Low and behold the last few moments of the episode, she gets what she was waiting for. We on the other hand have to wait until next week.

     alison close

    As we follow Alison around all night, we just can’t help but notice how beautiful she looks in her stunning gown. Of course it was beautiful; and, not surprisingly, was created by one of our premiere fashion designers, Tarik Ediz.

    Alison DiLaurentis, played by Sasha Pieterse is wearing Tarik Ediz style 92578. This beautiful one of a kind evening gown features an enchanting beaded illusion cap sleeve and a sweetheart neckline. The bodice has an elegant floral bead design, a thick solid belt with a sparkly jeweled accent and a long flowy tulle skirt. We loved the chandelier style earrings that she wore, they complimented the dress perfectly.

  • Top 10: Most Outrageous Homecoming Traditions

    The annual homecoming game brings out the best of us in our homecoming traditions. Whenthe rock at hhs ny I was a student at Huntington High School on Long Island, we used to paint this big boulder at the corner of the back entrance of the parking lot to our school. Not just at homecoming, we would paint it in different themes throughout the school year and for special events, memorials and other such things. It’s one of those traditions that technically we were all vandalizing school property, but officials just looked the other way for the sake of tradition. We had some very talented artists so it was a really great way to get attention from the community.

    All over the US students have very creative homecoming traditions to celebrate the occasion. Some traditions are associated with homecoming dances where women adorn themselves in gorgeous homecoming dresses and others are directly related to the game. Many schools and towns host a homecoming parade with floats made by students and teams. Other traditions include pranking the visiting team. Here is the countdown of the top ten truly unique, cute and quirky traditions across America.

     10. Student Participation

    tug o war oregonThose students who aren’t athletes or band members also get in on the school spirit. Long standing rituals in high schools and universities encourage everyone to join in. Like the University of Oregon, located in the city of Eugene. They host an annual tug-of-war game before the homecoming game. This is a well-established tradition, going as far back as 1967. This playful game has taken hold in other states, going beyond the homecoming season. Such events have inspired the Oregon Area Chamber of Commerce to hold an official event during Summerfest in Wisconsin.

    The University of Wisconsin at Platteville is the site of a large-scale construction project.the big m First created by mining students in the 1930s, a large letter “M” was created on the slope of a large hill just east of the city of Platteville. The project is  simply known as “The Big M”, which occupies a large area of 214 x 241 feet on the south slope. Students moved 400 tons of whitewashed stone to make this. The university has a past practice in mining engineering, hence the “M” stands for mining. Before the homecoming game and the dance, students use flares to illuminate the Big M, to pay homage to their rich history.

     9. Costume Parties

    marching band costumeSome homecoming games fall on a date that is close to Halloween, on October 31. Schools take this opportunity to host a Costume Ball as a part of the festivities of homecoming week. At some schools, this dress up dance is exclusive to a certain group, like the football team or marching band members.


    This practice is going strong after all these years at C.E. Jordan High. Located in Durham, North Carolina, C.E. Jordan High School has been hosting this dance since the 1980s. The band members wear scary costumes during their performance at the halftime show. These kind of rituals help break the monotonous routine that band members happen to be more prone to since they have a strict practice schedule. Continue reading
