leannaprairie asked: Hey Carly! My cousin is getting married in February in London, and I have no idea what to wear. I know the wedding is not black tie or super formal, but obviously it's not a casual event either. The wedding is in London, so I know it will be a tad chilly. I'm hoping to wear either a long sleeve dress or a dress that I can put a blazer/cardigan over. Any suggestions? I'm completely...

stricksays asked: You should try the brunch doughnuts at Tabard Inn! So good.
Strange, but true.
One of my guy friends (…this may sound weird, but it was funny during the moment), pulled all of my grey hairs out like a week or so ago. I had close to 30. Well, I swear they grew back in full force in basically a week. Moral of the Story: Listen to your mom and don’t pull out your grey hair.

Highlight of the Day
Sitting in class… professor is, you know, lecturing. Mid-sentence, he stops and goes, “Um… are those actual pennies? In your penny loafers? That’s so retro.”
livingeverydayandlovingeveryday asked: Hi Carly! I am planning a trip to NYC in March and I have no idea where to stay-there are so many different "areas"! Do you have any suggestions on where to stay, or any must-see attractions or stores?
unicornssiloveethemm asked: hey carly! I saw your post today about wearing the winter blues. I always feel like I can't wear blue though, because most of my "bottoms" are jeans or not weather appropriate. how do you get through these fashion troubles? thanks!

eqhunter asked: Hi Carly! Going to school in Canada means walking to classes in below 20 temperatures a lot, and my ears always get so cold. I was wondering if you had any cute suggestions as to what to wear to keep my ears and head warm, while still looking cute and preppy. I have a Barbour felted beanie in black, which I lot, but hat head isn't always ideal!

fyi-foreveryouandi asked: Hi Carly, I was just wondering if you knew of a website I can turn to so I can read about 20th Century American rowers. I know you used to be on crew and I was hoping you'd be able to help me with my research. It's for internship purposes and it's somewhat time sensitive. Thanks, Cybill
I just turned on “anonymous” questions… but instead of asking questions, I want you to anonymously VENT about something that is really bothering you (can be about anything). The past week has been particularly rough for me and I have been absolutely venting to my friends (love them!!!) and it seriously helps. So. Ready. Set. Go.
emmamludwig-deactivated20120716 asked: *Semi- time sensitive* At my school, we start our spring semester on Monday. I am taking 17 hours, 7 classes, and have 8 books all together. On Monday, Wednesday, Friday I am going to have to carry 5 books around since they are all back to back. I have a north face backpack, which I am going to use, but what else would you recommend for carrying the extra books and notebooks to class?

Well I am sidetracking but I wanted to ask you, Where is your purse from in today's post?? I see the black and navy longchamps, but the brown one that is also hanging from a hook. I have the feeling there will be alot of girls asking....
hermaintenance asked: Hey Carly! So I was starting to look at prom dresses today and I'm having a really hard time finding one. Originally I wanted to do a short fun printed lilly with cute pumps and make my date a matching bow tie with the same lilly print but I'm not a huge fan of any of the current prints which has thrown me for a loop! Do you have any ideas on cute fun dresses that are different and...

theprepstory asked: I'm trying to look for a cute monogrammed Macbook Pro case (similar to the ones that Neiman Marcus sells for the iPhone 4). I'd prefer it to be a hardcase instead of a sleeve. I figured if anyone could find it, it'd be you! SOS!
devon-shea asked: I have one Kate Spade bangle that is my favorite... I only take it off to swim/shower. Unfortunately, it's getting a little worn, and it keeps leaving a blue ring on my wrist. Do you know a way to stop that? I really don't want to retire this bracelet!
