As most of you know, I’m a major animal lover. And since I love fashion so much, I’ve accumulated more than my closet can handle. The solution? A flea market where all the proceeds go to helping dogs find a forever home this holiday season. (more…)

I’m the first one to admit it. Photoshop can be pretty awesome for a blogger. You can brighten pictures, create cool filters and even make a bruise on your knee disappear. But often photoshopping goes too far. Celebrities who are a size 8 miraculously drop down to a size 0. Cheekbones and six packs are created. Cellulite disappears. And young girls think that it’s reality. That’s why I was thrilled to partner with Feel More Better on their Not Photoshopped campaign.
A group of bloggers supported this positive message today by rocking a “StoryTee.” For each t-shirt purchased, Feel More Better gives a new book to an underprivileged girl. I went feminine with one of my favorite staples, a coral blazer, a statement necklace and leopard heels. You can see what everyone wore on StyleCaster.
Feel More Better Vee Neck, Ann Taylor Modern Tweed Jacket (on sale now!), Kendra Scott Grayce necklace, bracelets c/o Stella & Dot, Skyline Ankle Peg jeans c/o Paige Denim, Farrah peep-toes c/o Sole Society (get $15 off your purchase with SYDNE15)

***Enter the X Out giveaway on the Sydne Style Facebook page!***
X Out is a new one-step acne treatment from the makers of Proactiv. It’s all about confidence and putting your best face forward with just one simple step… kind of like putting on a dress. So they reached out to a group of blogger to DIY a dress using the letter X. Next month, all the dresses will go on eBay, with proceeds from the auction benefiting the Pacer’s National Bullying Prevention Center.
I started out with this maxi from American Apparel. After cutting it into a mini, I used fabric paint to create an ombré pattern of Xs. Then, I finished it off with built-in statement necklace so you can go accessory-free! Here are the steps…
(paint pink Xs on top of dress and fade out to bottom, repeat the opposite way in blue paint, fill in with purple Xs, use tacky glue to create random Xs on the dress, fill in with glitter, cut jewels out of inexpensive bracelets, use E-6000 to secure beads onto dress in the shape of a statement necklace)
Today marks the official launch of the Come Together campaign. I’ve partnered with Kenneth Cole, MTV International’s Staying Alive Foundation and amfAR to show my support with Kenneth Cole’s ribbon. The pin symbolizes a double loop, which is the coming together of individuals, and the re-doubling of efforts in the fight against HIV and AIDS.
ttF Fashion Staple: Black Pencil Skirt and Oversize Black Clutch
To truly showcase the ribbon, I went with an all black and white minimalist look, accented with touches of silver. My over-the-knee boots almost acted as leggings under the pencil skirt.
The ribbon will be sold through December 31 and 100% of net profits got to the Kenneth Cole Foundation, AWEARNESS. Click here to learn more.
