White is out and about on the streets now that Easter has come and gone. It is such a clean, cut, fresh color to wear all throughout the summer and spring-time months. This sophisticated look can be worn many different ways. It is a great color to wear for this time of year because it reflects the light and absorbs perspiration, so even when the steamy rays are coming down, you’ll keep cool. With all of these great reasons to wear white, there are still some things to keep in mind. Remember that white is very sheer and you need to think before putting on bright colored undergarments. Be careful when wearing white- don’t wear it to an event where you will be doing anything messy. And most importantly, don’t wear white to a wedding- keep that for the bride. So while keeping all of these things in mind, here are so great ways to wear white and shine in these hot months.

It’s about that time. The end of the year is near, and all the seniors are in the midst of interview season. The days are dwindling down and the “real world” is getting closer. One job application after the next, and you are beginning to realize that you need some cute business attire. If you are in the field of Apparel Merchandising or Design, like me, I know from my own experience, that you want to look presentable, while keeping your own unique style in mind. Even if you are not in the same field of study, I’m sure the same goes for you as well. A nice suit is needed for many occasions, including a job interview. If you are not graduating just yet, I'm sure you are still encountering other interviewing, such as for student organization leadership positions. A suit that stands out puts a Post-It note in the interviewer's mind to remember you. The most important thing about an interview is for you to stand out. Here are a few different ways to wear a suit, while looking the part, and also keeping your own style in mind:

The Golden Globes are one of the biggest award shows of our time. Everyone gathers together once a year to recognize the excellence in television and film. The first Golden Globe Awards were held in January 1944 in the 20th century Fox Studios in Los Angeles. The stars come for the food, they come for the awards, but most of all, they come for the fashion. Here are a few of the best and worst dressed at the Golden Globes this year:
Claire Danes- Wearing J. Mendel, Claire looks stunning in this classy but sexy gown. I love the black and white sleek style but it has some edge thrown in with the studded belt and the cut out back.
Emma Stone- Emma definitely didn’t need any “Help” looking gorgeous on this night. She was stunning in a plum and fuschia Lanvin gown at the Golden Globes. My favorite part of this dress was the eagle belt to make the gown a little more edgy.
Sofia Vergara- Check out Sofia in her blue, strapless, mermaid Vera Wang gown. Whether it’s on a beach or on an episode of “Modern Family”, she can pretty much pull off any look.
Dianna Agron- I thought this was an interesting choice but Diana sure did pull it off. The red always fits nicely for the red carpet look. The bottom of this Giles gown was decked out in fringe, while the top was a decorative design with swans leading the top.
Zooey Deschanel- She is such a cute girl and does a great job always trying to stand out in the crowd but maybe it was taken too far this time. Zooey was seen wearing a black Prada gown covered in emerald green glass pearls. She defiantly had the crowd looking, that’s for sure.
Kelly Osbourne- Kelly looks like she stole a dress out of her grandmother’s dress up clothes. She wore a Zac Posen ocean blue dress with pointed shoulders. We don’t want anyone’s eye being poked out Kelly, watch out.
Sarah Michelle Gellar- I appreciate your effort to try something different but a tye-dye dress? I think we may want to keep that back in high school days, Sarah.
