    I laughed so hard at the Jenna Marbles video (but secretly I plan on employing some of these tricks, haha). Love the Hautelinks posts!

    I’d LOVE it if you ladies did a post on what a not-so-girly-girl could wear to high-end bars and lounges. I just turned 21 and my female friends all wear tight dresses and pumps…..and I’m more of a fan of Troopa boots and skinny jeans (which totally wouldn’t fly there). Help a sista out! I can’t be the only one in this predicament.

    I personally think that Carrie does everything we all wish we could do (which means go crazy about everything). Plus, I think all the other characters are equally as crazy–we just don’t see it.
