I think the last time I wore a barrette was to the first day of kindergarten–but this one from Nasty Gal is making me seriously reconsider that life choice. This Moonage Metallic Barette ($18) doesn’t look like it’s for a 5 year old. The gold cutout moon design is seriously sleek. If anything, this huge clip will save you from a bad hair day. Get one:

I’m a leopard lover, so when I came across these new J.Crew slide sandals on one of my favorite style blogs Trini G, they immediately took a place on my spring shopping list. I’ll probably wear them with cropped black pants and colorful skirts. Will you be joining me?

If you’ve ever wondered what Scott Disick actually does for a living (let alone, any of the Kardashians), the answer might surprise you. On last night’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, it was revealed that Scott doesn’t just make the occasional club appearance, he is the President of Calabasas Luxury Motorcars. What?!
The revelation came after Khloe, Kris and Kim hounded Kourtney to investigate Scott’s “shady” dealings, which included wire transfers, secret dinners, a “wad” of license plates and a large delivery of luxury cars to their home.
“A business I own sells exotic cars,” Scott begrudgingly admitted to Kourtney after being interrogated about whether he was a “cars salesman” or doing something illegal. “It’s really nobody’s business.” Well, alrighty then!
You would think Scott would be proud to be running a legitimate business that has nothing to do with mooching off the Kardashian name–but we guess that’s not the case.
We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again–we love it when celebs wear clothes the rest of us can afford. The latest star to inspire our spring wardrobe? Jamie Chung.

Use coupon code HAPPY and you’ll get it for 40% off. Hurry!

After the winter we just had, it’ll be really nice to put away those heavy boots. Before you just stash em though, take a few extra steps to put them away properly, this way they’re good and ready to brave the weather next year. It’s really not hard at all, here’s what you do:
Give those boots a nice scrub down. They’re certainly covered with salt stains, scuff, and muck, right? The salt stains can be removed with a soft-bristle toothbrush and a solution of water and vinegar. Once you’ve tackled all the salt stains, use a leather cleaner to clean any remaining spots.
Deep Condition—specifically your leather boots—to be done immediately after you clean them. Make It Do recommends Dr. Martens Balsam, and I can personally attest to the benefits of using this specific polish—I use it on my Docs all the time.
Have them repaired. Instead of waiting until next December to fix any damage that your boots have sustained, take care of it now. Don’t wait for the first big snow to realize that you can’t even wear your boots until you’ve taken them to the shoemaker.
Stuff them. Before putting your boots away, stuff them with either a shoe tree or newspapers so that their shape is maintained. Make It Do also suggests adding rolled up magazines to help keep the boot’s shaft standing upright.
Deodorize. You can either purchase a shoe deodorizing spray, or fill a sachet with baking soda.
Lay them to rest. Storing boots upright is ideal, but if you are planning to store them in bins, make sure you lay the heaviest ones down first. Lay a cloth or old tee between every pair, or place them into a dust-bag.
Kiss them goodbye until next year!

Spring is officially here, which means you’ve probably got the itch to pack away those heavy winter coats for a few months. We’re right there with you, but before you throw them in a bin under your bed, STOP. If you want to preserve your coats so you’re able to wear them season after season, proper storage is critical. Lucky for you, we got the scoop on how to store winter coats and it’s actually pretty easy. Get the tips and tricks below.
1. Clean everything. Dry clean wool and cashmere coats; machine wash puffy coat and dry them in the dryer with tennis balls. Your coats are exposed to countless germs, oils and fluids so you want to make sure those are all gone before storing. Be sure to check all pockets for papers, money, gum and other items both before and after cleaning your coats.
2. Seal them up. Fasten all buttons and zip all zippers to ensure your coats maintain their original shape while in storage.
3. Get the right supplies. Wool and cashmere coats need to be placed on durable wooden or velvet hangers in breathable fabric garment/storage bags; puffy coats can be stored in vacuum-packed plastic bags.
4. Put them in the right place. The key to preserving your coats during the summer months is making sure you keep them in a cool (around 65 degrees Fahrenheit), dry, dark place. It’s best to hang wool and cashmere coats on sturdy hangers in cool closet, but you can also lay them flat in a large storage bin if you’re short on closet space. Make sure they fit comfortably in the bin to avoid wrinkles.
5. Consider cedar blocks. If you’re worried about insect infiltrating your coats while they’re in storage, invest in small cedar blocks. Not only are they an effective repellant, but they’ll keep your coats smelling nice while they’re in storage.
6. Avoid plastic garment bags. Most coats, but especially leather, suede and down-filled coats, need to breathe, which means you should stay away from plastic garment bags. Instead, choose fabric storage bags. Vacuum-seal bags are also space-saving alternative for puffy coats.
Jessica Biel may be in the final stages of her pregnancy, but that baby weight certainly isn’t hindering her style. She was recently photographed wearing this Michael Stars Zip Moto Jacket with Leather ($348) and we can’t stop wishing it was in our closets. It’s the perfect in-between jacket because the leather offers some warmth but the knit sleeves will keep you from overheating. Plus, the price is a little more budget-friendly than a full-on leather jacket. Pregnant or not, we think every woman needs this cute jacket in her closet. Get yours below.

You’ll no doubt treasure your wedding photos for a lifetime, so you want to make sure you look your absolute best in them. Even with the perfect hair, makeup and, of course, dress, there might be a few crucial things you forget to do when posing on your big day. These are seven you want to make sure you get right for perfect pictures.
1. Freshen up your makeup. You’ve made it through the ceremony and kissed your groom (probably more than once). When you’re done with the receiving line and moving fast to get in important shots before the cocktail hour begins, it can be easy to forget to freshen up your makeup–especially reapplying lip gloss.
2. Choose the right angle. You don’t want to take the shot standing straight towards the camera. Instead, stand at a slight angle and tilt your chin down slightly.
3. Focus on your best side. Everyone has one side that photographs better than others. Look in the mirror, take selfies and ask a few honest friends what they think your best side is–then let your photographer know that’s the one you want to use for the majority of your shots.
4. Sit pretty. You want your posture to be on point in every photo, but it’s especially important when you’re taking shots while sitting. So be sure to sit up straight, legs crossed at the ankles.
5. Hold your bouquet properly. For a traditional bouquet, hold it right in front, at about waist level with your arms held out a bit from your hips a bit. If your arms are right against your sides, it will make you look bigger. Or you can hold it loosely with one hand loosely with one and let the other hang naturally by your side for a more relaxed look.
6. Smile. Yes, it is possible to forget to smile on the happiest day of your life if you’re super nervous. Remember that a beautiful smile is the best accessory on your wedding day.
7. Relax. Don’t overthink posing–it will translate into your photos. If you just relax and be yourself, they will be more natural and reflect the real you.

If you’re looking for the perfect transitional piece from winter to spring, then stop right here, because I’m about to enlighten you. Ready? It’s scarves! You’ve probably been wearing knit ones all winter to keep warm, but I’m willing to bet you’ve got a few thin ones that you’ve been dying to break out. I’m a big scarf fan and have a collection that’s definitely larger than necessary, but it wasn’t until recently that I started wearing them any way other than in the conventional loop. You can braid them, tie them into infinity scarves, or twist them into all different sorts of artsy knots–the choice is (almost) limitless. If you’re not really sure where to start, then you’re in luck–we tried out four different ways to tie a scarf for your viewing and learning pleasure. Check out our video below to find your new favorite style.

Apparently white is the new black when it comes to bags. First, Jessica Alba was spotted all over California with this tote and now fashion maven Reese Witherspoon is carrying this Anya Hindmarch Vaughan Leather Bucket Bag ($1,295) in white. The bad news?

The top knot had a good run as the “cool-girl hairstyle on Pinterest,” but now it’s all about the half bun. Fashion bloggers and celebrities alike (ahem, Margot Robbie) have been spotted wearing this look. There’s just something about the half bun that is effortlessly cool, or as so accurately put by the ladies of Man Repeller, “It says, I forgot to shower again, but only the top part of my hair is gross. The bottom part is still killing it though, so I’m gonna let it do its thing.”
I’ve been trying to recreate this look and finally figured it out (with the help of Nasty Gal!). Here’s how to do the half bun:
1) Gather 1/4 of your hair from the top of your head.
2) Pull the top section up as high as you want your bun to be.
3) Start making a bun.
4) Tie the bun using a hair tie.
5) Secure the bun with bobby pins so it stays in place. Up to you how many it takes to hold the bun, but 1-3 should be good.
6) Spray a small amount of hairspray.
7) Use your fingers to loosen up the front and sides for a messier look.
