Must-Have Booties This Season




Booties are probably the best thing that ever existed in the fashion world- just kidding, but not really... They go with everything and anything you can think of and in the fall, they get replaced with heels as you can also wear them with a dress & tights!  Every fall/winter season, they come out with a new style of booties that we just can't wait to get our hands onto like these babies above.

When it comes to booties, you must have a pair in every color- brown, black, and tan... but that's with everything, right?  Maroon/burgundy and dark green are also coming to play with booties, so if you can get your hands on them... DO! These Sam Edelman booties are the perfect suede bootie for this fall.  If you're excited about fall/winter as much as we are, better start on your booties collection!

TSS Favorite Things: October Edition



We're back with our favorite things for this October! We are so thrilled that Fall season has commenced because we are suckers for pumpkin spice lattes, beanies, over the knee boots, and those famous Rom Coms to snuggle up watching. It should be no surprise then why we chose some of our favorite things above! Fringe is 100% a Fall fashion trend so the Rebecca Minkoff Fringe Purse and the Lucky Brand Booties are necessary closet editions. Ever since Solange dawned a cape dress for her wedding, we have been obsessed with that look and found a cute wool one called the Wayf Collarless Woven Cap. Earlier in the month we talked about our love for the best primer ever, so naturally we are keeping Givenchy Mister Mat Matifying Foundation Primer high on our shopping list in addition to Laura Mercier Radiance Primer.

Shop the rest of our faves here
  1.  Mansur Gavriel Mini Bucket Bag-Black
  2.  Women's Jessica Simpson 'Conley' Bootie, 3 1/2" heel
  3. Aldo heels/pump37
  4. Ugg Slippers (in Sand color)
  5. Swell Bottle
Happy October shopping!

The Best Homecoming Dresses To Rent




How is it already almost Homecoming?! This was one of our most favorite times when in college. It's one of the few times that we can reconnect with alumnae and have week long activities on campus dedicated to nothing but school pride. But, best of all are all of the date parties! We know how hard it is to find a dress that the next sister won't have, so of course this is why we love Rent the Runway. Above are our favorite dresses and below are the links where you can find most of the dresses on their site.

Fall & Winter 2015 Coat Must-Haves


Ok, so we have an active GroupMe going on right now with our friends debating on where to buy the best fall coat. For those of you in the colder cities, you know just how important having the right coat is. It's about keeping warm while looking uber stylish. At the top of our list are the famous Burberry trench coats (p.s. Did you see Olivia Pope last week looking amazing in her Burberry trench coat?! We died!). They're more on the pricey side but everyone we know that owns one says that they last forever and are the perfect fit. Banana Republic is another awesome store to snag some cute coats like this one here. Department stores like Macy's, Nordstrom, JCPenney, and Sears usually having a plethora of high end and low end coats to choose from. Grane carries some really nice, affordable coats at Sears like this one. If you're looking to be more trendy than full-fledge warm, you cannot go wrong buying a coat from Betsey Johnson's line! Think pinks and faux furs and everything in between!

Do you have a coat that you absolutely love for fall & winter? Share with us the brand(s) you love in the comments below!

Boots With the {Faux} Fur


[1][2][3][4][5]

Too soon to talk about boots? Nahhhh! Of course, we started shopping around to all of the high end and low end faux fur boots and lucky for you, we compiled our favorites above! We are absolutely in love with faux fur boots with a nice heel like these cute ones from Ann Creek Ltd. Whenever we would walk around campus in the fall and winter, we were suckers for UGGS and these Lamo boots are a striking resemblance at a more affordable cost.

What are some of your favorite faux boots? Share with us below!

Game Day Glam

[image source]

Yay for football season! Gah, we missed those days of dressing up in our maroon and gold (GO SUNDEVILS!) to show off our school spirit. There are so many cute and fun ways to be game day glam so you can stand out from all of the other fans. First, head to Michael's Craftstore and snag some rhinestones. Deck your game day shirt with rhinestone bling and you will definitely catch people's attention. Buy fabric in your school's colors and cut them into strips. Tie each strip to a simple head tie and eventually it will be a cute ring of fabric on the head tie that you can tie onto your hair or even use as a fun form of a bracelet. You just can't go wrong buying eyeshadow and lip stick in your school colors. Colourpop is the absolute best site to snag the lipstick as their lip products are $5 {talk about a secret steal!}. Buy some fun accessories to throw around your neck like beads and pom poms to wave that you can get at Party City, Oriental Trading Company, or Stumps.

Whatever you do, get all decked out and rep your team to the fullest!

It doesn't matter how old you are, getting ready for the first day of school is so much fun. For us sorority girls, it's all about looking cute as we 'Campus Catwalk' our way from class to class. On the days that we are not wearing our custom made sorority shirts (because let's be honest, that's 90% of our wardrobe after workout gear and formal dresses) we appreciate a trendy piece to flaunt around school every now and again. We shopped the closets of some of our favorite designers to get you some outfit pieces to turn heads for those first few days of school. Shop them all above! One of our favorites is this super adorable camel colored felt floppy hat from TOPSHOP. Let us know what you like from our list by sharing with us below!

Kicks For A Cause: Why We Love Inkkas!


Have you heard of Inkkas? Co Founder, Karen, has been rocking these unique looking shoes and we are kind of obsessed with them. The patterns are eccentric and the shoes are really, really comfortable. The background story on Inkkas is surrounded around conscious commerce. When Inkkas was founded, the company set out to be an organization that was about more than simply making a profit. The company established itself on the principles of fair trade, authenticity and social consciousness. Due to the growing danger of deforestation, the Inkkas company decided to make a difference in the world by creating the OneShoeOneTree project. They plant a tree for every product they sell. Pretty amazing!

For a lot of you, school is starting this month! That means some heavy back-to-school shopping.

If you're anything like us, then you're obsessed with your laptop and want to keep it in tip top shape. Forego the boring basic black laptop case and opt for a cute trendy laptop case like the ones you see above. We recently got wind of the designer Vera Bradley and her laptop cases are really focused on intricate prints and bold color patterns. Of course, you can't go wrong snagging a Kate Spade laptop case; all the heads will be spinning asking you where you got your laptop case since they make the cutest everything! Shop the links above to ensure you have the perfect laptop case before school starts!

Summer Florals We Love





Is it just us or have you been seeing a lot of floral prints in summer fashion? We are kind of loving it! Our wardrobe instantly lights up with every perfect little floral perfection. The designer, She Inside, is giving us so much life with this gorgeous floral flare dress and it's under $40 {fashion steal!}. Have you heard of the designer Show Pony? Well, you won't forget about them when you see how amazing this cute maxi floral dress is. Not to mention it's under $45! We think you know how we feel about Sabo Skirt and their to die for fashion pieces so this crop top, maxi skirt combo definitely made the list of our top favorite floral fashion pieces. If you feel like splurging (and we REALLY mean splurging with this one) Jimmy Choo has the absolute most fabulous leather python floral heels. We drooled a little when we spotted it. If it helps, they're currently on sale! But, there is nothing like giving back with your floral shopping purchases and that can be done with Inkkas super cute shoes. For every shoe purchased from Inkkas they plant a tree. Co Founder, Karen, got her hands on the Flora African Jogger shoes and she said they're incredibly comfortable and that people have been stopping her asking her where they can get their hands on those shoes. Nothing like stopping traffic with your floral fashion pieces!

Where are some of your favorite places to shop for floral fashion pieces? Share with us in the comments below!
