Hey Carly!! I love all the rings you wear. I was just wondering, which is your favorite? Also, I love the ring you are wearing in your tumblr post titled "lucky lucky lavender" from May 2012. Where did you get it? :-)
Hi Carly! I am currently looking for a dress to wear to my University's Spring Formal. Do you have any recommendations for anything cute (and preferably affordable) that would go with navy wedges? Thank you!!
How can I style an oxford shirt without looking too formal in high school? I'm sort of at a loss... Oh and also, where can I get some white ones?
Personally, my favorite (casual) white button up is the J. Crew boy shirt. It’s a great material and not stiff like a more formal/business-y shirt. For high school, I’d wear it with a cute skirt or simple jeans and flats.
Hey Carly! I need some fashion advice, I was wondering what color of flats I should wear with the J. Crew scalloped shift dress in navy. I was also thinking about wearing tights since it will be chilly when I wear it. I would love to hear what you think and if you have any suggestions for shoes or tight color! Thank you so much! :)
Hi Carly! I recently started a blog and I just wanted to know what I could do to put it out there. It seems like so many people have blogs that nobody ever sees other than the writer! How do I set mine apart?
Hey Carly! I have a Teddy question for you. I recently got 2 toy poodle puppies and their coat is fluffy/puffy instead of curly. I was just wondering if you ever experienced this with Teddy? Thanks so much!
When Teddy comes back from the groomer, he’s a big ball of puff. But one little ounce of water/humidity and he’s curly again!
Hi Carly! I LOVE your blog and I was wondering if you could give some suggestions for cheap (less than $30) spring and summer dresses that are casual. I'm going through a serious dress phase and want to have more options on the cheaper side. Thank you!!!
Hi! So I have a presentation coming up later this month, and my teacher said that it would be super cool if each group had an accent color - we chose red. I'm the only girl, so I'd like to wear like a skirt or a dress with red accents. Any ideas?
Hi Carly! Thanks for answering my Gtown question a while back :) I was wondering if you knew of a place that carries cute and affordable professional suits? I'm petite and need something well proportioned and chic for med school interviews.
Hi Carly, I love your blog, especially when you give advice to people with wardrobe questions. I'd like to add mine! My fiancee and I are being feted at an engagement party over Memorial Day weekend in Michigan (where I grew up, I now live in the DC Metro area). What would be an appropriate ensemble for a backyard style party, in the evening? Thank so much!
I’m utterly obsessed with this dress! If it’s warm enough (not sure what the temperatures are like in Michigan in Late May). I like that it has a little cap sleeve and gold/white… perfect for an engagement party!
hey Carly! I'm a university senior with a few tentative job offers on the table that need answers pretty quickly. Some are safer but not really what I want to be doing; I don't have the financial means to take massive risks, but some of the less stable jobs are much more enticing. Advice on how to juggle multiple offers and judge what risks are good to take?
This is one of those things with no real “right” answer. (And I also firmly believe that everything will work out no matter what happens…)
I think the best thing you can do is to set yourself up for success in the longterm. What job will let you learn the most… what job has the best company culture… what job has great resources for you to succeed!
Hi Carly! I hope you are enjoying this beautiful Spring-like day. I was wondering how to measure your stats on your blog. How do you keep track of your ROI, referrals, etc.? Thank you!
I use Google analytics! It’s the best… and not too complicated at all. Youtube videos and even the tutorials within Analytics can walk you through what to do. (I always think the best way to learn is to start with a question and figure out the answer… For example: “What social site sends the most traffic?” and then go from there!)
Hi Carly! I'm moving to the city to go to school this coming fall. I won't be living in a dorm or residential hall and I'm not moving with friends. Do you have any tips on where to look for roommates or potential apartments? I'd prefer to stay in Manhattan! Thank you so much!! :)
For roommates, I would definitely try to find friends of friends! I see tweets and facebook posts all the time for people who are looking for roommates or who are asking for friends. A lot of my friends here have roommates who weren’t total strangers, but one or two friends removed. I’d start by telling your immediate friends you’ll be looking for roommates and ask for them to help you spread the word!
You might also find that a FB group for your school might have other students looking for a roommate.
As for finding apartments, I would start (at the earliest) a month before you need to move in. And even then, that’s still super early. Apartments in the city move fast, so most people don’t start looking until right before the move. (It’s frustrating!!!) Renthop.com and NakedApartments.com are great resources!
Hey Carly, I started working in a more professional setting during the fall and now that spring and summer is coming up, I really don't know what to wear in the office. It's not too dressy it's kind of a 'casual dressy' type of dress code. Any ideas?
Also, I always say to follow the “rule of threes” when putting together professional outfits. Basically, it means you should have three distinct key pieces for every outfit… example: A statement necklace, a dress, and a blazer/sweater.
Hey Carly! I want a pair of Hunter rain boots for when I go to college but was wondering which ones to get. I know you have the Original boots and the Tour boots and wanted to know which you would recommend for walking around campus. Thanks!
Hey Carly! Hope you had a great vacation! I am in denial that I'm still cold so I want to do some spring shopping. I'm on a budget, so I'm just looking to add a few pieces that are more spring appropriate. Any suggestions on a few good additions? Thanks!
