I love coral jellys because they feel so light and fresh and tropical--like guava juice! Awkward Chic Rating A-: Taking a few points off for the matte-ness and difficulty of application, the color is great and I trust Orly's durability.

Awkward Chic rating: B+/A-. I really like the idea and I love the color. But it's a little pricier than my usual dye ($13 instead of $10), it takes twice as long to develop, and it irritates my scalp. Will I use it again? Probably. I want to see how well the color ages before I decide.

I feel like these are more nighttime wedges--they're very sophisticated and chic, and you could totally wear them out with a LBD. Twelfth St. by Cynthia Vincent Tiered Cami Maxi Dress, $385 at shopbop.com: I have come to terms with the fact that my booty was not meant for maxi dresses. But...

Awkward Chic rating: A-. I like the formula a lot, and I do like the color, although it's not what I expected. Orange isn't really my thing, but the red and the gold twist to this one keeps it interesting and sassy, so it works for me.

I love that it's kind of masculine in shape, but the tortoiseshell is super girly and chic. I love the giant, oversized face and the calendar faces, and IWANTITTTTTT. It would be adorable with a really feminine outfit, like a little sundress and big sunglasses. So I am stupid, and I didn't...

And they work well too! I have tons of thick, slippery hair, and these manage to keep it contained in a bun with minimal falling out and no awkward hair kink marks. Consider me a convert. BirdAve Gossip Poster, $18 at etsy.com, Big Ben Skyline Poster, $20 at etsy.com: I finally caved and...

I really love the lipstick format--it feels very classy and chic. It goes on smooth and not at all waxy--it has a bit of a matte finish but feels both light and deeply moisturizing on your lips (like it sinks beneath the surface and gets work done). It has a subtle vanilla scent/taste that I...

I'm not one for cutesy jewelry, but this bow ring strikes the perfect balance between quirky and chic, and I love anything with some sparkle. I want to wear this shirt to sleep and then get up and eat a midnight snack in it. Too funny. Botkier Maddie Shoulder Bag, $295 at shopbop.com,...

All of these prints are under $25, and they're all so quirky and chic and would add so much character to any room. Here are some favorites! And a random mirror. Chanel No. 5 Print by 8by10, $25 at etsy.com, Chanel Print by birdAve, $20 at etsy.com: I will buy any and every print with a...

It's very chic and polished, so you could wear it to work, but it's also a little edgy, so you could wear it out and about. I know I won't actually get this for my bday, but in theory I want it. How adorable is this dress? The shape is very flattering, with the fitted bodice and slightly...
