Blake Lively Style Evolution

It's not everyday that I develop a new girl crush, but when I do, it's pretty major. Blake Lively has been at the top of my list for years and with her current pregnancy and journey into motherhood, she's looking more incredible and stylish than ever. Let's take a few moments to appreciate her effortless sophistication and flirty looks throughout the years, from days on Gossip Girl to glamorously owning the red carpet (with equally as beautiful and dapper hubby Ryan Reynolds) to recent days in maternity. Did you know she's her own stylist, too? It's no surprise that Lively looks absolutely fantastic in everything she wears. Scroll through below!

In the Words of Myrtle: Balenciagaaaaa!

Nasty Gal is already on their 5th vintage goldmine, and today I'm featuring my favorite lust-worthy pieces from the Balenciaga collection.

Although he's moved onto Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière, once the design genius of Balenciaga, has brought to Nasty Gal an incredible collection of bold pieces with intricate embroidery, structured silhouettes, and geometric shapes and lines - all the standout essentials from one of fashion's most beloved powerhouses. I'm in love.
