Any recommendations for a light stylish raincoat under $50? Thanks!

girl, you know i’ve got some. keeping your budget in mind, i found three that may fit your bill, though one (the first suggested style) is slightly above the requested price range.

Ack! I missed the Q&A Tuesday... Maybe this can be in the queue for next week? I've recently RSVP'd to my very first semi-formal wedding that starts outside and ends at a swanky rooftop restaurant in October - what the heck do I wear!?!?!

you’re planning early! way to go. with the season and occasion in mind, i’ve scoured the internet to highlight three very distinct, yet equally-as-appropriate looks to inspire you. worse comes to worse, keep it simple and aim for solid colors in lush fabrics like silk, satin, or velvet and accessorize with one or two impactful pieces of jewelry.

Saraaa! I have pretty bony and vein-y feet, which become very apparent when I wear flats, which I really do not like! Do you have any suggestions on how to make it look better or an alternative to flats? Lovex

  1. try airbrush foundation. a light spray in a shade that perfectly matches your skin tone will camouflage visible veins on your feet.
  2. look for ‘full coverage footwear.’ styles that have additional straps or embellishment on the upper foot area will conceal “boniness.”

I have fallen in love with this beautiful Spruce colored TUMI Alpha Bravo Lejeune Backpack Tote bag via Pinterest and looked it up to find out that is was around $400. I can't really bring myself to spend that kind of money on a bag, regardless of it's beauty. Do you have any suggestions for inexpensive backpacks (under $100) similar to the beautiful TUMI I love so much? Thanks!

camo is the new polka dot — the combination of neutrals make it an easily layerable print. with that, i can see how your wallet may’ve been like “aw, hell naw” upon falling in love with that backpack. what about these alternatives, all priced at or below $100?

Any ideas for outfits for festival season for "chubbier" gals?

first step? start following some plus-sized bloggers for inspiration. that’s really my only suggestion because many of these gorgeous ladies like to travel; with their attendence at festivals like coachella and bonnaroo come endless style inspiration for you.

Hi Sara! I'm going to study abroad in Beijing this summer, and I was wondering if you could give suggestions affordable for stylish, breezy clothing (that's still appropriate enough for a work/class environment) that could combat the extremely hot and humid Beijing summers. I don't want to look unprofessional in an academic setting! Please help a (poor) college student out. Thanks in advance! :)

staying professional in the heat is a struggle, i fell you, but the first step is self-awareness and recognizing the challenge. with that, i’ve gathered a handful of pieces you should stock up on due to their breathability and lightness. safe travels!

  1. semi-sheer crepe blouses (mango, $30)
  2. breathable linen trousers (toast, £85)
  3. crochet sundresses (boohoo, $40)
  4. cut-out sandals (new look, £10)

Hey Sara, could you recommend some chronograph watches that are more menswear inspired but can fit on a small wrist?? Thank you!!!!

image

i will happily suggest some menswear-inspired watches but would also say that the answer to your question focuses less on the watch itself and more on the strap; to properly size for a small wrist, be sure to get links taken out by a trusted jeweler!

Hey Sara, I am wondering if you have any ideas for clothes that would work well for a cross-country (via car) trip? I'm traveling East to West in late May for 20 days. Car space is sort of limited so I'm hoping for pieces that can not only be worn multiple times but are lightweight and easy to pack/layer/mix together. Thanks for any help!

i’ve been escaping nyc as much as possible this summer because a girl’s gotta explore, so this question really hits home. obviously, i have a particular sense of style but the items i’m about to suggest you pack should work for laydeez of all taste levels.

  1. a few easy, breezy muscle tees (madewell)
  2. cosmetic bag that doubles as a clutch (coach)
  3. some comfy drawstring shorts (parker)
  4. a maxi that can be dressed up or down (miss selfridge)
  5. a statement necklace (baublebar)
  6. simple gladiator sandals (nine west)
  7. throw it all in a canvas duffle bag (baggu)
