  • The Best Fall Coats for Every Figure

    Finding an affordable fall coat can be a challenge, and focusing on color, cut, and cost hardly leaves room to think about the fit. Here are our picks of the best fall coats that will fit your specific body type and criteria.

    Sizably Slender

    Being slim gives you a lot of different options. However you don't want a jacket that fits too tightly around your body, as it can be easly construed as tacky. We suggest a laid back and modern approach to a fall jacket. This See by Chloé coat will cinch your waist to show off your figure. The baggy sleeves, top, and pockets will leave people wondering just how slim you are under your cute coat.

    Perfectly Petite

    Being petite can sometimes prove to be an obstacle when picking out a fall coat. With hemlines that pass your knees, a longer coat can certainly make you look short. It's important to steer clear of elongated styles, and stick with a cropped coat.

  • 5 Types of Guys to Avoid at All Costs

    When it comes to dating, we all know how hard it is to know who the bad seeds are (especially if your type is the bad seed), and especially if when we meet them it's in a haze of bar smoke. It's easy to think everyone is nice and worth your time, or think that everyone sucks and you're better off becoming a nun and devoting your life to Jesus. No need to purchase a rosary yet, sister, because here's a list of the easy-to-pick-out dudes who you should avoid like a pair of camouflage Crocs.

    The Guy Who Lives With His Mother

    This one is easy to justify in your head - "Well...he needs to take care of his family," or "It's super temporary and it's only because he's trying to save money." No. The second he says you can't chill at his place because it's his mom's night to watch Desperate Housewives, say "peace." Avoid if you can. There's nothing like always having the guy in your apartment, or having to endure the walk of shame past his parents in their bathrobes. It also

  • Do You Dress For Women or Men?


    Are you the type of lady who mismatches fabrics and prints, and pairs interesting pieces with one another? If the answer is yes, you're probably one of the many who dresses for the ladies. Throwing caution to the wind, you strut style confidently, creating an original look; one that can't be replicated, no matter how hard your girlfriends try. You have impeccable taste and an eye for color. However there is one thing that you may lack: sex appeal.

    The true Style Setter sometimes loses sight of, well, her body. If you're dressing for the ladies, you're probably thinking: who cares if I show off a little leg, when I could cover it up with an amazing legging? Not every guy enjoys rubbing his legs against beaded stockings in a movie, and there are certainly ladies who pick up on that.

    Do you take special note of your body, and look in the mirror wondering if he would think this is hot? If yes, you're definitely dressing for the gents. You know how to accentuate your curves

  • Why He's Not Introducing You to His Parents

    When we were younger, meeting the parents was a prerequisite to dating; if a guy did not come to the door to pick me up, he was forever banished into the "Not a Nice Boy" category by Mom and Dad. That came in addition to him tagging along to Family Movie Night, and having to leave my bedroom door open when we were hanging out.

    Now, meeting the parents means one thing, and one thing only: you either are in, or are on your way to, a serious relationship. But what happens if you've been together months, practically live together, yet you have yet to even glimpse his childhood home? Here are a few possibilities before you decide to call it quits:

    His parents are crazy

    Generally we grow out of the whole "my parents embarrass me" thing when we're 16, but it's possible there's something about his that still make him blush. Maybe they're super religious, and meeting you will basically cement his future to premarital maybe-bliss with you. It could really have nothing to do

  • 5 Bad Things That Are Actually Good For Your Skin!


    Oil: The word alone gets a bad rap--we associate oil prices with economic and political concerns, the stuff in our kitchen with adding extra pounds, and just the thought of it applied to our skin topically is enough to make our pores clog.

    But depending on your skin type (and you know better than we), oil applied facially can actually be incredibly beneficial to your complexion. Its moisturizing nature is extremely nourishing for those with normal, dry, or combination skin, and it will leave the skin's texture soft and supple.

    We recommend Jason Vitamin E Oil, a lightweight and soothing formula to condition your face. Vitamin E is a natural and highly-concentrated anti-oxidant, which means it will not only soften the skin, but protect it from free-radical damage. Jason Natural's Vitamin E Pure Beauty Oil, $5.62, at drugstore.com.

    Honey: Sugar is bad for our skin, causing it to thin and weaken over time. So honey, a form of sugar, isn't something commonly

  • 5 Surprising Things That Are Making You Age Faster

    Leighton Meester digitally aged in the September issue of Harper's Bazaar.


    The idea of aging always seems to be under debate; teenagers can't wait to experience it (or at least up until their 21st birthdays), while people "over the hill" dread its ever-increasing effects. While the process of aging may be inevitable for anyone who possesses human genes (unless you're Demi Moore), there are still a number of ways that you can slow its scary effects without having to dish out cash for plastic surgery. We would still like to be able to have facial expressions by the time we're 70...

    Here are 5 ways to turn back the clock when it comes to your skin:

    1. Smoke signals

    You've all heard it preached before. Not only can cigarettes cause cancer and severe damage to your lungs, but they also damage your skin; but you don't have to be the one inhaling to be negatively affected. Just being around cigarette smoke on a regular basis will dry out facial tissue and deplete it

  • Breakup Recovery 101: Five Rules You Must Follow!

    Whether or not you were together for two weeks, six months, or four years, breakups hurt. And they can be really hard to get over. If you listen to the wise words of Charlotte on Sex and the City, it takes half the time you were together to get over him. Here are a few more wise words to help make your next breakup a little easier.

    Don't Talk to Him

    The most crucial rule in breaking up is to not talk to the person you're breaking up with. Even if you think you can handle it and still get over the person, you can't. Don't kid yourself; feelings will get hurt. Take some time off, get over him, and maybe someday in the future you'll be friends. Until then, lick your wounds and recover any way you'd like; whether that be partying hard, staying in bed for days with pints of ice cream, or spending absurd amounts of money on clothes you don't need. No one will say a thing; we all heal in our own, weird ways.

    Snap Out of It

    Remember how things, like stupid songs and

  • Celeb Halloween Style: 7 Best Costumes Ever!

    You tell us! Who dressed up best?

    When you type "celebrity halloween costume" into Google, Heidi Klum freaking owns it, page after page. When she's not "auf wiedersehen-ing" on Project Runway, homegirl must do some serious costume brainstorming. From sun goddesses and demons, to evil apples, Klum and husband Seal make sure no one touches them when it comes to Halloween creativity. However...some come close. Here are our best celebrity Halloween costume picks; let the inspiration begin.

    Simple, yet totally hilarious, Gwen Stefani went trick or treating with her son as an egg!

    Although we're not sure if she sings anymore, Christina Aguilera and husband look pretty scary...I mean, look at that pink wig.

    We like Heidi and Spencer here because it shows them for what they truly are - he's bulky and confusing and we're not sure what she is.

    Christian Siriano makes a fierce Cruella DeVille for last year's Heidi Klum bash...tranny fierceness.

  • Is Your Makeup Harming You?



    Your makeup may not always be stamped with an expiration date, but that doesn't mean it lasts forever; while some products can last for years, certain beauty products should be replaced every three months!

    - Using old makeup may cause breakouts, which doesn't even seem so bad, considering it can also lead to a nasty rash or skin infection. While most products contains preservatives to stop the growth of bacteria, they become less effective over time. Natural and organic cosmetics have fewer preservatives, requiring you to be extra careful with them.

    - To avoid contaminating your makeup, try not to use your fingers to apply, as bacteria from your hands is easily transferred to the makeup; always use makeup brushes that are cleaned and decontaminated regularly.

    - Store your makeup in a cool, dry place - not your bathroom! You should also steer clear of sharing makeup with others, especially eye and lip products.

    - Obvious ways to tell if your makeup is past
