Mentions, Features, & Highlights

PSS is a Glamour Do!

In love with spring's hot military trend, but afraid it'll make you look like a less-than-feminine new recruit? Take a cue from Kristina, Today's Best Dressed Reader, and go girly with your version! Her attention to detail--the uber-femme embellished top, the tangle of necklaces, and the insanely fun hosiery--help take this look from sorta boyish to perfectly pretty. Rocking the military trend while still managing to show off your gorgeous gams? We'd call that a major do. --

Fashion mega-site FabSugar...

How to stand out in a sea of breton stripes? Just do as Pretty Shiny Sparkly does and say anchors away! What I love about this look: her full commitment to retro-nautical inspiration (note the rouge lips and polish). High-waisted, button-detail shorts make this a super-chic nod to a very hot trend.

Pretty Shiny Sparkly snapped this pic right as she was out the door. I like to call her crisp Americana for her preppy-cool vibe. Her button-down shirt and jeans got a little boost via brown platforms, a little nonchalance 'cause of her shades, and a ray of sunshine thanks to the yellow bag. Effortless at its best.

Pretty Shiny Sparkly was highlighted as a fave new fashion blog on internet show, "Chicks Who Chat". Check out the episode here: Blog Talk Radio. Here's some of the transcript:

The next site that we're gonna give a shout-out to is called Pretty Shiny Sparkly. This is probably the prettiest of all the sites--I love it. I think it's super, super cute. She does a vlog, so you get to see her video today, she's giving away a BackPack she calls it an "iMac Clutter Killer". Go check it out--I'm really loving like clean-looking blogs and it's making me really want to change my layout because it just looks so nice…
