Chocolate Wrap Dress

This is a cute dress for fall and it's on sale for almost half off at $140! The back has a nice sheer chiffon detail (not too much, you can still wear this to work) which makes it a little different from your typical wrap drass. Check out alternative views at Active Endeavors.

Lacey Belt

I love this belt, perfect for Fall style, great to wearover jeans or a long skirt. Very earthy/Victorian feel to it. Get it at Pink Mascara for the sale price of $66.

I love the mod look for winter coats, with the buttons halfway down! I also love the collar and the color of this jacket. Get it at French Connection UK for $328 if you're a size 10.

Find me this shirt!

Seriously, where can I find this shirt? I know Chip + Pepper designed it, but I don't think it even exists anymore! I'm going to have to make it myself if this carries on much longer!

Tie-front Shell

Here's a nice, classic shell with a unique front-tie. You could wear it to work, out on the town really just about anywhere! I love comfy, versatile pieces that are classic and yet unique at the same time. And if you get bored with it, try tying the knot on the side, on the back, etc. Get it at Max Studio for $78.

Japonesque Kimono Dress

We all know how much I love Asian-inspired pieces by now, and this dress is no exception! The print is beautiful, yet not overwhelming and the red empire belt is just the right splash of color. So this is contender #2 for my office holiday party, if I can afford it at $280. If YOU can afford, you can find it at Shop Intuition.
UPDATE: If you get this dress, buy a size up!

High-waisted Satin Skirt

Since the high waist is big right now, I figured I'd find a cute piece that wasn't on the high end of the price scale. Here's a cute satin skirt (in either navy or silver) with a super high waist. Get it for $172 at Shop Bop.

Rain Cloud Necklace

I love the rain drop details on this piece! The necklace is like cutesy all grown up. I can see someone like Maggie Gyllenhaal wearing it. Get it at Built By Wendy for $180.

Shorts in Winter?

This fasshonaburu says yes you CAN wear shorts after the temperature dips below 60 - just wear a pair of opaque tights! Really, it's just like a miniskirt. Here's a cute pair that are in a Fall/Winter material. Get them at Polkadots and Moonbeams (a FABULOUS online boutique) for $262.

Which came first -- the fashion or the egg?

Here's an article about study results that I stole from CNN.

Women dress to impress when they are at their most fertile, U.S. researchers said on Tuesday in a study they say shows that signs of human ovulation may not be as mysterious as some scientists believe.

A study of young college women showed they frequently wore more fashionable or flashier clothing and jewelry when they were ovulating, as assessed by a panel of men and women looking at their photographs.

"They tend to put on skirts instead of pants, show more skin and generally dress more fashionably," said Martie Haselton, a communication studies and psychology expert at the University of California Los Angeles who led the study.

Writing in the journal Hormones and Behavior, Haselton and colleagues said their findings disproved the conventional wisdom that women are unique among animals in concealing, even from themselves, when they are most fertile.

Some animals release powerful scents when ready to mate, while others display skin color changes, but human ovulation is notoriously difficult to detect. This is attested to by the frequency of unintended pregnancy, as well as test kits marketed to women wishing to become pregnant but unaware of the likeliest time to conceive.

Any thoughts? I think it's true for me, though I'm just guessing.

Holiday Parties Are Coming!

Here's the first contender for my office party dress this year! I refuse to wear black, and I need something classic and chic. This fits the bill perfectly and you can get it at $169 at Anthropologie.

Cowl-Tie Dress

I absolutely love this dress, I've never seen anything like it. And we all know how much I love to stand out! The collar has a sort of old-time European look and the cowl neck modernizes it. Get it for $185 at Mighty Flirt.

Night Out Tank

This is a cute top, but the reason I'm posting about it is because it was originally $242 and is marked down to $96. Not too bad for a Samantha Treacy Top! Get it at The Fashion Pulse.

High-waisted Pants

If your fashion icon is Katherine Hepburn, these pants are perfect for you. With wide legs and high, wide waistband with mother of pearl buttons, it's the epitome of elegance. Get them at Le Train Bleu for $283.

Long Mutli-Color Sweater

This is a cute sweater by Miss Sixy, I love the giant cowlneck and how colorful it is. Be careful not to look to 60s in it by pairing it with slim black pants. Get it at Urban Outfitters for $160.

Asymmetrical Shirt

I like this shirt, great for looking casual and yet still indie cool. But the collar and cuffs make it very work- wearable. I think the versatility of a piece is one of the most important factors in buying clothes. Get this at Stars + Infinite Darkness for $79.

Gwen Channels Cris Cross

Seriously, what stylist is being paid to dress their client like this? Though is the image she wants to project is "I put my clothes on backwards," then I guess the stylist is well underpaid. Though it's not even a sexy, form fitting backwards but more like an Amish straight jacket on backwards.

Cheap Blazer

Can you believe this blazer is only $30? Get it at La Redoute, which tends to run small, so buy a size up.

Flower Ring

How absolutely beautiful and unique is this ring?? It's just so delicate and yet an incredibly
loud statement at the same time. Made in silver, it's then dipped in
liquid platinum! You can get it at Funky LaLa for $800-900. Expensive, but definitely high quality.

Hooded Sweater Dress

Here's a cute sweater dress for those fall weekends. Pair it with skinny pants or leggings and a tank, maybe some booties and you're good to go! Or maybe a belt... hmmm, the possibilities are endless! Plus it's a slim way to layer your clothes without looking heavy and overly grungey. Get it at Girlshop for $228.

Tapestry Coat

I love unique coats, who wears basic black anymore? Here's a beautiful tapestry coat that I can easily see on Carrie from Sex in the City. Get it at Bluefly for $418.

Going Out of Business

While it saddens me to hear about a shoe store going out of business, the idea of up to 80% off cute brands like Chinese Laundry and Kenneth Cole cheers me right back up! Go to Soleas for some sweet deals before it's too late.

Milla Jovovich's Line

Here's Milla Jovovich being interviewed about her fashion line.

Romantic White Blouse

J.Crew is having a fall sale, and here's one of the best pieces. It's a cute, very romantic blouse and I'm totally in love with the tiny brass buttons! It was originally $78 but it's marked down to $40.

Target Couture Purse

Here's a purse from an amusing line called Target Couture. Some of the stuff is very obviously the Target logo, but this one is pretty subtle. Get it at Shop Intuition for $250.

Versatile Pencil Jean Skirt

I love the pencil jean skirt. Perfect for meeting the family, a casual day at work, stolling down the boardwalk or even going out to a bar or club, it's one of the most versatile wardrobe pieces a fashhonaburu can own. I really like this skirt because it's in the most versatile (too lazy to think of a synonym at this point) denim color around, indigo. Get it at Armani Exchange for $78.

Gaultier swaps Size O models for 'Size 20'

"Fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier found his own way to comment on the 'size zero' debate - by putting a larger model down the catwalk to show off his clothes.

Dressed in a daring black corsetry, the plus-sized model dwarfed her fellow waif-like catwalk queens.

Clearly more of a size 20 than the controversial model Size 0, this voluptuous woman proved big is beautiful as she strutted down the runway at Gaultier's 30th anniversary show yesterday during fashion week in Paris."

- Daily Mail

Why can't they just have average-sized girls? Designers say they want the clothes to hang right, which happens best on skinny girls, but I think they should design for real women, not create fashion that looks best in your closet!

One More Ankle Bootie

Just because I want to give my girls options! Love this one, wish I had found it before I bought my already worn booties. Get this at ShopIntuition for $140.

Obi Belt

Cute obi belt that would look fantastic over a crisp button down. It's one of those nice touches that can turn an outfit from classic to fasshonaburu. Get it for $80 at Ravinstyle, a new site I've found.
UPDATE: Free shipping until Oct 9, enter "freeship" at checkout to redeem the shipping offer.

Paper Bag Waist Pants

I've heard about how paper bag waist pants were gonna be the next big thing. Then I forgot all about it. Now I see maybe the trend is finally emerging... think it'll catch on?
Get this L.A.M.B. version at Nordstrom for $285.

America's Next Top Fashion Victim

I love America's Next Top Model, though every season they have one girl who is a bigger attention whore than Lindsey Lohan. Lisa was the attention whore of her season (or cycle). So I doubt anyone is suprised that she's wearing a shirt with her face on it.
