Hilary Clinton - Future President or Queen of Blazers?

The classic red blazer can be hard to full off, however the Teletubbie staple is always worn to perfection by Hillary Clinton. This led me to wonder - can commoners like me pull off the look without looking like a highly desirable children's show character?
The verdict - yes. Wearing red isn't as difficult at most people make it seem, and I think that it's a power color that really reflects the confidence that you have inside. Clinton manages to effortlessly wear red head to toe, something that I'd love to try, but it could scare some people. So, I decided to try the look with just a red blazer, and my usual French wannabe clothes underneath.
Wearing red is all about finding your own balance with the color, and a blazer is the perfect piece to experiment. The style choice left me feeling incredibly influential, and it definitely gives Hillary Clinton a 'ready to lead America' vibe.
I've never really thought seriously about this question, but it became something that I wanted to answer after rewatching a scene from La Vie en Rose. Near the end of movie, Edith Piaf meets a journalist on the beach for an interview. She's asked a variety simple questions, one of which is: "what is your favorite memory as a woman?" Piaf responded with, "my first kiss."
Half way through August, as a last minute attempt to try and find love before the end of summer, I made a JSwipe account (the Jewish version of Tinder). I'd be lying if I said it was my first time on the app because I've had at least four or five previous unsuccessful goes at it, but I promised myself that this time would play out differently - it did.

Despite the fact that it's already fall, the weather seems to be telling us otherwise. So what do I do when it's too hot for sweaters? Evidently, expose my legs, wear suede booties, and layer two tops like a laid back university professor.
A few nights ago I found myself lying in bed finishing up homework with my eyes barely open. That's when I got texts from two of my best friends saying that they'd just met each other's significant others. Naturally, I asked for their opinions on the encounter, but I couldn't help but wonder - was I not invited because I'm single?

Leather weather is around the corner, so I think it's time to embrace your inner Hell's Angel and start incorporating the moto trend into your wardrobe. I've still yet to find a good leather jacket, but whether you have one or not, you can still look like the baddest bitch in town.
I've been trying to get rid of a lot of bad habits lately. Pimple popping and late night ice cream are just two of them. But, just because I haven't been able to cut some things out my life doesn't mean I can't get rid of others. So, today I present you with a cold shoulder ruffle top that satisfies my deepest of fashion cravings, and leaves me feeling like a fall ready flamenco dancer from the waist up.
Pink - the color that covers every inch of my childhood bedroom is now one of fall's most fashionable hues. So, get ready to live la vie en rose, and indulge in my grandmother's favorite color (side note: the fact that a 75 year old woman wears pink proves that it's not only for seven year olds).
Anyway, the outfit I created above has a lot of neutral pink tones because no one wants to look like a go-go dancer. Most importantly, remember that pink can be worn at anytime of any day, and is no longer only reserved for Wednesdays.
Everyday I ask myself; why am I not a stylish Parisian princess? And then I remember. I remember that I'm just a hairy Jewish girl, who spends way too much time shaving to ever be considered 'chic sans effort'. But today, in true wannabe fashion I tied a silk scarf around my neck, and tried out the classic French girl staple. The only problem - I wore really obnoxious heels. That, according to every WhoWhatWear article ever, is a big mistake if you're trying to emulate French girl style. Oh well...
Dress: Ted Baker
Today I decided to release my inner Blair Waldorf and wear a dress covered in cherries. However, unlike Blair I spent my high school days deep in math textbooks, and speed walking home from school. That's why I found it only logical to pair the dress wtih Puma sneakers.
