Mad about ModCloth: 10 Heels under $50

ModCloth is our new favorite place to shop for spring heels.  The price is so easy to justify no matter how cash-strapped you are, and the shoes are adorable.  We especially love their plethora of T-strap heels. To us nothing is chicer than a T-strap heel and dress for a night out on the town.  Put the pedal to the metal and get some shoes.

Tiny Dancer.

Even though snow is outside, we know eventually the sunshine is coming and we need to tone up our bods for when the clothes start coming off.  BarreConcept's ballet barre workout is our favorite new exercise.  We love it because it is only twenty five minutes long but, with lots of isometric pulses, you can feel the burn all over.  You don't need any ballet experience to do this workout as all the moves are easily explained.  We use a kitchen island in place of the barre but you can also use a high table or back of a chair.  Work it gurl. Who doesn't want a dancer's body?

Style Envy: Olivia Palermo

Even though we loved to hate her years ago on MTV"s The City, Olivia Palermo has always been a fashion inspiration.  Since The City, Palermo has cemented herself as a New York icon and a fashion tastemaker  Below are our favorite ten looks she has sported in the last month during Fashion weeks in NYC, London, Milan, and Paris.

We love Palermo's ability to always look effortlessly polished and to expertly play with layers. From fur to leather to wool to sequins, Palermo is also the queen of pairing interesting textures.   

Palermo is known for her ability to mix high and "low" end pieces.  For example we love her striped H&M top in the top center leather ensemble below,  as well as her BaubleBar Collar Necklace in the top right picture.  

Take note of her fabulous use of blazers and range of shoes from leather boots to laced-up heels.  While we way be green with envy, we also consider her a master professor on looking chic.
