I’ve always wanted to capture the style of London by shopping like Pippa and Kate. So when I came across the Boyfriend Jeans Challenge, I knew that this was my chance to do so. Skype is currently calling fashionistas across the world to style an outfit around a pair of boyfriend jeans. Once you’ve styled a fabulous casual chic look around your favorite pair of boyfriend jeans, simply sign into your Skype account and add Skype.Collaboration as a contact. Then submit a photo or video message of your look.

The grand prize winner will be flown to London to go on a shopping spree worth $5500 with Skype Photography Brand Ambassador and fashion blogger Chaucee Stillman and Holly Coopey, fashion stylist at Cosmopolitan UK as your personal stylists. Before the grand prize winner is chosen, eight finalists will be selected to join a group video call with Chaucee and a group of elite stylists where they will be asked to style one final look. The looks will then be posted to the Skype Collaboration Project website and put to a vote. The look that gets the most votes will win a Middleton worthy shopping trip in London! Time to start styling!

InStyle boutique


It is once again that time of year where we wonder where the time has gone and search for the perfect gifts in between hot chocolate, holiday specials, and hoping for snow. Though I love the holidays, I prefer to skip the endless lines and crazy traffic at the stores. Therefore, online shopping is an absolute must and this year, I’ll be shopping this season’s must-have holiday items on InStyle.com. The InStyle Holiday Boutique is a limited time, exclusive pop-up gift shop living on InStyle.com from November 11th to December 27th of 2013. It features holiday gifts from over 30 fashion-forward brands and carries everything from designer fashion to accessories, beauty, and contemporary fashion making it perfect for treating both your loved ones and yourself this Holiday Season. I’ve always wanted to be able to shop the outfits and accessories directly from the pages of InStyle and now I actually can just in time for the holidays!

After browsing through the InStyle Holiday Boutique, one of my favorite features (besides seeing the editors’ picks) was the Love List where you can save all your favorite items the way you did when you made Christmas lists for Santa as a kid. Here are five of my fav finds from my love list found in the InStyle Accessories section. Accessories always make excellent holiday gifts and you shouldn’t miss the chance to start off the new year with a few new accessories of your own.

Fabulous Broke Girl Contest by Young, Fabulous & Broke

Though sometimes I get mistaken for an actual socialite, I’m actually broke. For broke people, entering contests to win free stuff is a great way to supplement your undesirable income.  The quintessential L.A. brand Young, Fabulous & Broke is currently doing a ‘Fabulous Broke Girl Contest’ on their Facebook page where fans can submit a short video of their best broke girl story.  As instructed by YFB, “Stories should sound like the time you couldn’t pay your rent and ended up sleeping on your friends couch because you bought Chanel boots. Or maybe even the time you could only afford the 99 cent store so you’d park your Porsche in the back so no one would see you.”  It’s really funny and a great way to win a $500 shopping spree.  But, you need to get your video in fast!  The contest ends this Saturday December 11th at 11:00 a.m. EST and then voting begins.  Only persons residing in United States who are at least 18 years of age can enter.  If I don’t win, I hope that one of you do.

I’m so behind on my video.  But, I promise it will be coming soon.

Here’s a little preview of my 100% true broke girl story: Once I was chatting with this guy in a bar who’d bought me a few drinks.  When it was time for me to go home, he asked how I was getting home.  When I said I was walking he immediately reached into his wallet and handed me $20.  I decided to walk home anyway and used the money for groceries.  Now when I go out, I always look to collect cab fare.
