    You've probably noticed them popping up everywhere: bright, colorful, "skinny belts." They're the kind of thing that I love on other people, but am not quite sure how to approach myself, not really being a belt person in general. So I asked my style expert and author friend Bridgette Raes to give me some tips on how to work those fun, fab pieces into our wardrobes even if they don't quite seem like "us."

    Here are 4 tips on how to wear the bright belt trend and some colorful options out there for inspiration! Pair them with bright lipstick and you've got yourself a whole fresh new look!

    If you want to spot every celebrity currently walking the earth, all you have to do is fly to California, throw on the tiniest denim cut-offs you can find (extra points if they're fringed), and attend Coachella -- the hottest music festival in the history of music festivals. The 3-day event is heaven for famous people, who use it as an opportunity to mingle among the common people -- yeah, right -- and, more importantly, show off insane outfits and accessories that would get them laughed at by Joan Rivers if they tried to wear them anywhere outside of the Colorado Desert.

    Celebs may think time and good taste stand still while they're dancing their butts off at Coachella (cough, cough Leonardo DiCaprio), but we know better. And we're here to harshly judge the 10 outrageous looks these celebrities attempted to pull off at this year's festival.

    After I finished breastfeeding my fourth baby and lost most of my baby weight, I was pretty depressed about my boobs.

    I realize I'm not supposed to say that because it sounds vain. Plus, they fed my children and that's amazing! And awesome!

    And yes that's great, really it is, but I miss my old breasts.

    As it turns out, half of my problem was that I was wearing the wrong bra. Maybe you are too.

    Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen usually get it when it comes to fashion (though you could argue MK's boho styles have come across as a bit confusing at times). But even they got it wrong this week when they were spotted rocking Birkenstock-style leather sandals with white tube socks. I don't care how fashion savvy they usually are -- this will never not be a no-no. Never, ever!

    But, at the end of the day, we can give a pass to the fashion designing duo because they more or less always look polished (Ashley) or at the very least hip and somewhat dirty -- in the best way possible (MK). Know who we can't forgive? The following celebrities, who have committed 9 of the biggest fashion disasters we've witnessed in some time. Tsk, tsk, celebs.

    What is the cost of a bag with a big smiley face and the phrase "Have a nice day" in most places? Usually, it's free (unless you live in San Francisco where -- by law -- you have to pay 10 cents for a shopping bag). But if you want a version that is "crafted from printed python skin ... lined in soft suede with hand-painted edges," you'll pay $4,000. Yes, $4,000 for something that looks JUST like a regular old plastic shopping bag.

    While an illusion dress won't give the illusion that you've dropped 10 pounds (a girl can wish), it will give the appearance of a more contoured shape. It highlights your figure through color blocking and lines, essentially making this the most flattering dress style this season. I'll even go so far as to say the illusion dress eliminates the need for shapewear because the design does the shaping for you (without restricting your breathing).

    Over at The Prowl, we rounded up our favorite illusion dresses for spring that are as bright and colorful as spring dresses should be. Check out this preview of illusion dresses for spring style inspiration!

    Walking down the street in SoHo NYC yesterday, I spotted a gorgeous floral dress in a shop window. My frozen little heart leaped at the sight ... because it means winter really is coming to an end! Of course, it being SoHo, that particular frock cost a million dollars (or it might as well have; I didn't go in to inquire!). But no worries! There are PLENTY of pretty, sexy, and flattering spring dresses out there that "we the people" can actually afford.

    Here are some of my favorites ... happy almost-spring!

    Like shoes and tubes of lipstick, you can never have enough pairs of jeans in your closet. Multiply this rule by a thousand if you're a mom because we desperately need quick, fuss-free dress options that are sturdy enough to hold up after a day of chasing our toddlers, but fashionable enough to look great when we finally venture out of the house for a much-needed cocktail.

    But with so many styles of denim out there, it can become easy to get sucked into the vortex of super-trendy, over-the-top, or plain old unflattering jean items that no mom actually needs in her closet. Over the years, I'll admit I've accumulated more pairs of skinny, lime-green jeans with zippers in places zippers aren't needed than I care to admit. The moment I rid myself of these pieces, the better I felt!

    Here are 3 kinds of jeans you absolutely need in your closet in order to look your best and 3 you can toss right in the trash.
