Ready for the 4th?

Time to get patriotic with America's favorite holiday: 4th of July!  The TSS team got together and compiled our favorite red, white, and blue items!  Everybody needs some patriotic ensembles to represent for America, so we were obsessed when we found these cute shorts from Pair that with a plain white tee and some converse and you'll be star-spangle bannered out! Since we're all headed somewhere hot to celebrate the 4th, we knew that bathing suits and sunglasses during the day would be a necessity. Wildfox has the cutest bathing suits like the one you see above. Pair that with a patriotic beach towel, and you will be fit for the occasion on the beach or at the pool. To keep the patriotic party going at night, match this cute skirt from Top Shop with these pretty red, white, and blue platforms and the Rebecca Minkoff MAC Bag from ShopBop to tie the whole outfit together.

However way you decide to look on the 4th, make sure you're rocking the red, white, and blue!

Happy 4th of July!

    It Girl Interns Trend Report: Patriotic

    It may be June, but we're counting down the days until we can celebrate one of our favorite holidays: The 4th of July! With this patriotic holiday just around the corner, we asked our It Girl Interns what patriotic pieces inspired them and we couldn't get enough of their red, white, and blue choices. Marisa's favorite patriotic piece of clothing is her American Eagle Outfitters "Hope and Peace" shirt. Pair that with some cute jean shorts and a Swanky Doll Couture red, white, and blue bow and you have Serena's favorite patriotic look. For Victoria, she opts for the red, white, and blue color scheme in her patriotic wardrobe as she pairs a beautiful blue dress from TJ Maxx with a nice red belt and the good old American flag. Cristina loves to rock the stars in her star-spangled banner swimsuit. What's patriotism without some homemade American apple pie?! Avery's favorite way to show her patriotic spirit is by baking a delicious homemade American apple pie... yum!

    What red, white, and blue pieces inspire you for this 4th of July?

    Hey Sailor

    Photography: aMaes Photography
    {On Ali} Blazer: Forever 21 (similar here).  Tank: Forever 21, old.  Shorts: Urban Outfitters.  Necklace: Forever 21 (similar here).  Hat: Amazon.  Sunglasses: Ray Ban.  {On Sakura} Dress: H&M (similar here).  Shoes: Sperry.  {On Karen} Jacket: Forever 21.  Tank: H&M (similar here).  Shoes: Sperry.  Lips: Make Up Forever.  Sunglasses: Jimmy Choo.

    Hey there, sailor.  This week, we're getting back to the nautical basics: classic prep, classic Americana.  We're feeling the red, white & blue spirit, topped off with some gold touches and bold stripes.  While we were at it, we decided to have some fun playing up the look with accessories.  Sakura picked an oversized hair bow, and Ali wore her captain hat (yes, she wore it for Halloween one year-- but why not).  Shorts pair nicely with tailored jackets, and short hemlines pair nicely with... Sperrys!  Yes, both Karen & Sakura showed up to our photo shoot rocking the exact same pair of metallic boating shoes.  Great minds think alike!  Another thing we all agree on?  You can't go wrong with all-American preppy style.

    Sealed with a #TSSKISS

    Arizona State University
    Scottsdale, AZ
    We love our readers! This past Valentine's Day we asked you to show us your favorite makeup look for the love-filled holiday. Whether you tried our ombre lip look, had fun applying banana powder, or added nude or pink lips to your Valentine's Day look, we wanted to see it. Here are some of our favorite entries! Be on the lookout for your next chance to be featured on our site.

    Lipstick: Mac Russian Red & Mac Diva.  Lip liner: Mac Nightmoth.  Beanie: American Apparel.  Tank: H&M (sold out).

    Ombre has been THE trend over the past year, shown on everything from haircolor to dip-dyed denim.  So, we decided to take this trend and apply it to our lips-- literally.  Creating your own ombre lip is easier than you may think!  All you need is 3 shades (we chose deep red) in a similar hue, ranging from darkest on the outer area, to lightest on the inner area.  

    Step One: Apply darkest color, the lip liner.  We used Mac Nightmoth.
    Step Two: Apply lipstick in middle shade all over lips.  We chose Mac Diva for this dominant color.
    Step Three: Apply lightest lipstick shade in center of lips only, dabbing on in the inner pucker.  Gently blot your lips together, to blend ever so slightly.  We used Mac Russian Red for the lightest shade.

    Just like that, you'll have ombre lips.  This look would be perfect to try for our Valentine Makeup Contest!   We would love to see you put your own spin on this makeup trend.  What color do you want to try using an ombre lip?

    Valentine Makeup Contest.

    Winners will be featured next week on our site, showing off their date night makeup looks.

    Sweater: Similar Here. Pleather Leggings: Forever 21. Shoes: Converse. Lipstick: MAC.

    There's just something ironically cute about dressing up like a boy.  Not only is it super comfy, but boys actually really love it when girls feel confident rocking a more laid-back look. We're not telling you to dress grungy and not care about how you look but mix it up; BoyChic!  

    To complete the BoyChic look, Sakura also curled her hair and threw on some red lips.  

    What other ideas do you girls have to make an outfit BoyChic?

    Blazer: Thml Clothing (sold out, similar here and here).  Tee: Splendid.  Jeans: J Brand.  Hat: New Era.  Sunglasses: Ray Ban.  Shoes: Forever 21 (old, similar here).  Belt: Nordstrom (similar here).  Lipstick: Revlon Really Red.

    Spring 2013 is white hot!  One of our favorite trends for the season is the classic black & white combo.  It's effortlessly chic, and looks extra polished when worn in the form of a structured blazer.  Black denim is one of our top staple items, as we talked about in the boho leopard post.  Wearing black and white together is a bold contrast that makes a statementBut, we wanted to make the look even more of a contrast.  We paired a grown-up piece (the blazer) with an unexpected piece (the hat).  With a personal touch, the outfit becomes your own!  What spring trend are you most excited to wear?

    We also found a super cute white blazer from Boutique To You, which is perfect for this look!  Use our promo code SECRET15 for an extra 15% off of your purchase.
