Spring 2014 Trend Report: Mules

Olivia Newton John as Sandy (1978) // Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw (2000) // 10 Crosby Derek Lam S/S 2014 Collection (2014)

In the early 1950s, Marilyn Monroe popularized the mule and it experienced a lot of popularity throughout the 50s and 60s. It re-emerged in the 90s in open-toed form, the "slide," and emerged on the September 2013 runways once again in many designers Spring/Summer 2014 Collections.

Here are a few of my top mule picks.

French Connecrtion 'Randy' // Vince Camuto 'Jaso' // Jeffrey Campbell 'Druid' // Sergio Rossi 'Norma J.' // 10 Crosby Derek Lam 'Katy' // Stuart Weitzman 'Herenow'

Sponsored: BIC 4-Color Pen

This post brought to you by BIC 4-Color pen. All opinions are 100% mine.


With exams coming up for many college students like myself, it’s time to start studying. Personally, I’m a big fan of my colored pens, it makes me stand out from a sea of black pens and boring pencils and makes some of my more boring classes a little more enjoyable. BIC® is bringing back inspiration to the everyday with their 4-Color™ pen.

As part of their ad campaign, they’ve given each of the 4 Inseparable Colors in 1 Pen their own unique personality. You can watch the colors in the videos below that really show off their personalities, and also by following BIC® on Facebook and Twitter for more fun aspects of the campaign like giveaways!

Blue is the superstar, Green is jealous, black is the brooding brother to blue, and then there’s red.

I’m definitely red! Red “likes it when things are correct. When matches are parallel and books are well aligned on a shelf. His favorite moment of the day? When it is 11:11 sharp on his digital watch. His passion in life? He has many: spelling, grammar, conjugation, calculation.”



You know you want one of these for yourself, so swing by Amazon or Staples to get your own 4-Color™ Pen!

MTV Movie Award's 2014: Best Dressed

Rosci Diaz wore a Monica Rose for Lovers + Friends 'Charlie' skirt and 'Lucia' crop top, both made of vegan leather with laser cut detailing on the hem.

All I could think of was summer when I saw this! It looks super crispy and separates paired together is a huge trend for this spring and summer. Also, I'm totally loving the side-swept hair and pink lip!


Jessica Alba's glowing skin tone made her springtime yellow Kenzo skirt pop even more. She paired it with a cropped white Piece D'anarchive top, Jimmy Choo 'Anouk' pumps, Narciso Rodriguez clutch, Graziela Gems, Rona Pfeiffer, and Dana Rebecca Designs earrings, and Rona Pfeiffer, Melissa Kaye, and Derek Lam/Jamie Wolf rings.

I wasn't a huge fan of the bag with her outfit, although I've got to give her props because it is her own design for Narciso Rodriguez, the 'Jessica,' made entirely of aluminum soda-bottle tops.


Debby Ryan rocked a black Rachel Zoe Pre-Fall 2014 Collection jumpsuit paired with Renvi jewelry and Aperlai shoes.

Her hair and makeup were flawless and super natural, I love that she kept it casual because so many celeb's go overboard on the red carpet when they should stick to the basics.
