by Sam P. February 2nd, 2017 | Sam's Suggestions, Teen Fashion
Those of you that have knowledge in the artist or computer world will know that arbitrary colors are colors that usually would not be paired together.  Think of them as complimentary colors that have been altered a few shades.  They are also referred to as handpicked colors, so something like red and green that go well together would be changed to pink and yellow,

by Sam P. January 5th, 2017 | Sam's Suggestions
Once every six months to a year you need to clear out your closet out.  Chances are, there are a ton of things in there that you either don't wear anymore or they don't fit.  This is a great way to figure out what does and doesn't fit anymore, and what you do and don't need this year.  A way to make closet clear outs fun is to have some friends over when you do it.  Someone your size, one slightly bigger, and one slightly smaller than you.  Between the four of you, take everything from your closet that

Stylish Winter Coats

by Sam P. December 22nd, 2016 | Sam's Suggestions
Winter is one of my favorite fashion seasons because there's so much to wear.  Leggings, jeans, sweaters, jackets, and coats.  When I used to think of coats I thought of those hideous puffy, bubble coats our parents used to make us wear when we played out in the snow.  As we grow older, we grow out of snow coats and into real coats.  I recently got this new winter coat that I adore.  It's a deep forest green pea coat.  My favorite thing about it is how thin it is.  It still keeps me warm without adding on a

Emergency Kit to Keep in a Car or Purse

by Sam P. December 8th, 2016 | Sam's Suggestions
Emergency fashion kits are a very important thing to have, and you should always have one on hand with you.  I keep mine in my purse, but will probably be switching to my car soon as I prefer to carry around a small clutch and the kit takes up too much room in my wristlet.  I keep eight things in my kit, but I have considered adding an extra two items on.

My Contents:

  • Needle and assorted colors of thread

  • Double sided tape

  • Bobby pins

  • Liners/tampons for personal preference

  • Hair ties

  • Safety pins

  • Lip balm

  • Mascara

All of these items are absolute necessities.  You never know when you are going

Dressing Warmly for Cold Games

by Sam P. November 10th, 2016 | Sam's Suggestions
As football playoffs approach, it seems that each game gets colder and colder, and as it gets colder your outfit becomes thicker and thicker.  The best way to dress warmly for the chilly fall games, and to not look like a marshmallow, is with layers that not only keep you warm, but trap in the heat. To start, throw on some regular socks and a tank top, as for pants, lined leggings are perfect.  They are thick and will keep you warm, but are still fitted to show off your figure under all your layers.  Over the tank top

Long Pencil Skirts

by Sam P. November 3rd, 2016 | Casual Bottoms, Teen Fashion

The junior section at Macy's is often hit or miss, but on the skirts recently it has been quite a hit.  This season I have been obsessed with long pencil skirts, the ones that hit at about mid-calf to just below the knee length.  They are great because they are fitted and look fantastic on everyone, but also are school appropriate.  I don't know about you, but my school has but a strict ban on

Teen Fashion: Rings

by Sam P. October 20th, 2016 | Essentials, Teen Fashion

Lately I have been absolutely obsessed with rings.  And not just “Oh, I love rings! They're so pretty, but OMG I need to get to the mall now to buy more rings!” Usually I don't bother with buying jewelry since it tends to be far too expensive for what you're getting out of it, but lately it’s all I buy.  And my secret is one store in specific - Forever 21.

Forever 21 has been one of my favorite stores for quite some time, probably because everything in general is so inexpensive, my friend got her homecoming dress from there

How to Create a New Dress From an Old One

by Sam P. October 13th, 2016 | Sam's Suggestions
My homecoming dance is coming up in about a week or two, and I still have yet to find a dress.  Most stores are sold out at this point, my school always has their dance really late in the year, and I don't really have the money to buy a dress anyway.  The dress I wore two years ago still fits and I love it, but I don't want to wear the same dress again.  I found a cute and easy way to completely change your dress.

If an old dress of yours has a zipper going up the back

Teen Fashion – Ballet Flats

by Sam P. October 6th, 2016 | Shoes, Teen Fashion
Ballet flats are cute and comfy shoes that have been in style for the past few years.  They are great because they are versatile and can typically be found for fairly inexpensive amounts.  They work very well for almost any occasion and with almost any outfit.  I like pairing them with both jean and skirts.  Another fantastic thing about ballet flats is how many styles they come in.  There is the traditional black ballet flat, but they come in all different colors and styles.

Hair Masks for Under $10

by R. Carnavale September 29th, 2016 | Women's Beauty, Women's Fashion
Soften and moisturize your extra dry or over-processed hair with a monthly hair mask treatment. Hair masks result in a deep-conditioning effect on your hair’s outer cuticle and the nourishing ingredients in a hair mask will actually close the hair’s cuticle, leaving even dry, over processed locks looking super shiny and feeling soft and touchable. Applying a mask to your hair is inexpensive, too -- these masks cost under $10 and if you really want to stretch your wallet, you can make your own

The Best Way to Stay Cool at School

by Sam P. September 15th, 2016 | Sam's Suggestions
I don't know about all of you, but my school does not have air conditioning so in may classes it can get far too hot to concentrate.  If you're wearing jeans, boots, and a sweater you won't be any better off.  The first thing to remember is to dress in layers.  Start with a t shirt or a tank top, and a pair of jeans or leggings.  Then layer on a cute cardigan or kimono sweater, if you need a jacket.  For shoes, try to keep them as loose and light as possible.  Tight, heavy combat boots will keep
