Best Handbags for Any Date


Every girl knows the importance of a quality handbag. A handbag isn’t just a means to carry around our essentials, it can enhance and define our personal style and say a lot about who we are. Do you prefer practicality or style? Do you need to carry around an assortment of “just in case” essentials or just stick to the basic essentials? Do you invest in timeless bags by known designers or do you like to keep up with the trends and buy the latest “It Bag” by the latest up-and-coming brand? People, guys included, can learn a lot about a girl through her handbag.

Choosing the right bag for a date can be tricky. You want something roomy enough to fit your essentials, but not so bulky that it will weigh you down and be a nuisance. Also, think about what guys find sexy – a girl who is attractive, confident, classy, and together. The opposite of sexy? A girl who’s not properly put-together, wearing the wrong outfit to the wrong date, fumbling with her accessories, and not paying attention to the man beside her.

Read on to avoid the biggest purse pairing no-nos when it comes to your outfit, and learn how to use your bag to your advantage when it comes to dating. Here are 10 of the most common dates, each with their own purse-marching hack. [Click here to keep reading…]

Must-Have Summer Date Dresses Under $50 post image

Being a student in college, I completely understand the importance of a budget. But being a fashion-lover, I also know the importance of good quality. Fortunately, looking amazing does not always require spending a fortune.

My sorority hosts about six dressy events per semester, so that’s 12 events a year that require getting decked out. As a result, I’ve become quite savvy at finding fabulous and flattering pieces without breaking the bank.

Dressing for a summer date can be a bit tricky. You want to look cute, but at the same time stay cool and comfortable. You want to look sexy, but not in a trying-to-hard way that just doesn’t seem to fit with summer’s laid-back essence. And you want to keep it affordable because, if you live in an area with changing seasons, these summery styles don’t have a very long shelf-life.

From dinner dates to picnics in the park to a casual afternoon browsing through your local flea market, I’ve found the perfect dresses for any type of date, all under $50

Date Night Inspiration: Jessica Alba’s Flirty Floral Look post image

A few months ago I came across a picture of Jessica Alba in a gorgeous look on her way to Ralph Lauren’s S/S 14 show at NYFW.  Why I loved it?  Because she incorporated warm weather flowing pastels with her cold weather chunky dark neutrals to create a refreshing take on fall dressing.  This instantly inspired, what I consider to be, the perfect winter date night look.

Jessica’s look will set you back big bucks, but there are easy ways to achieve her look on any budget.  Some tips for perfectly achieving her look include keeping the sweater cropped.  This will keep the sweater from overpowering the skirt and will make your overall look appear slim and clean.  Another tip is to keep the skirt airy by choosing a light, flowing fabric.  Heavier textures will, you guessed it, make the overall look feel heavy so stick to silks and chiffons.

Another skirt tip is to keep the length to a midi or slightly higher.  A full on maxi will also create a heavy illusion but it also really covers you up – it is date night so keep it fun and flirty (and feel free to rock a mini if you’re ready to brave the cold)!  Lastly, if you live in a place where strappy sandals aren’t a fall/winter option, don’t be afraid to try a pointy-toe pump or a classic ankle bootie.  Either shoe option would work great with this look.
