Fall Fashion Q&A with YouTube's Elle & Blair Fowler and Fashion Expert Jorge Ramon

I recently had the opportunity to interview celeb teen YouTube hosts and 'style spotters' Elle & Blair Fowler and TV commentator/fashion expert Jorge Ramon via the web about today's hottest fashion trends.

Watch the video to hear them answer my questions about fall fashion must-haves, how to wear the military trend and much more. (You'll hear them refer to me by my first name rather than "The Budget Babe" but don't let that throw you off.)

Plus, get the scoop on a new Sears contest to find America's top teen/tween style talent. Visit for details.

Very cool. I will definitely save on all my pieces as my wardrobe basics are complete, but will invest in a wedge boot like the ones made by Acne. Something super chic, comfortable, and super versatile is worth the splurge.

Also, for those living in the USA the GIVEAWAY closes super soon! The gorgeous vintage inspired cocktail ring might just look amazing on your pretty hands ^_^

Hmm.. the outfit ideas for the military jacket were a little too fashion forward, trend oriented than I would have liked. A military jacket with a floral dress and jeggings?!

I definitely think that a killer pair of boots are worth splurging on, but not jeggings or the military jacket. You can easily find good pieces at reasonable prices.

Actually I have never really been a fan of Elle and Blair, at least as far as fashion goes. :-( I feel that they do not emphasize importance of adding personal touches and such. Though I did enjoy hearing Jorge Ramon's insight. :-) Nice video.

I completely agree with you in terms of Elle and Blair's fashion sense. They became famous on YouTube for being beauty gurus, not fashion, but now all of their marketing things have been fashion-related.

I personally don't like Elle and Blair, by being paid for an item, or to do a video because you were paid is shaddy. in my opinion once you are paid your view is tainted. these girls seem to steal there complete style out of Vogue, or other fashion magazine. which isn't bad, its great for inspiration but NOT your whole wardrobe. none of these ideas were there own! they had no personallity to the clothing. also a lil FYI if u check there channel, and videos EVERY review.tutorial.haul.anything ANY video she puts up that doesn't involve MAC she is being compensated, or the items were sent to her. which to me means she has no bleeping idea what she's doing just trying to make a buck.while we go spend hundreds on things they RECOMMEND.which by the way they got free. DON'T TRUST THESE SISTERS! can't wait till there 15 minutes is over.=)

I agree with you 100%

I stopped watching their videos because these two sold out a looong ago, lost every bit of their credibility, & there's no reason to waste time watching 7 minute long commercials from Lisa and Elizabeth (or whatever their names are these days).

They are so fake. I used to like their videos and now... they are annoyingly everywhere!

They are completely unoriginal, everything they said was previously said by the guy or the other sister.
