Pink Backless Top

Pink Backless TopBright colors are big for Spring, especially blue, yellow and hot pink. I wouldn't exactly call this hot pink, but it's fun and bright and I sure do love backless tops. I think it's the best way to be sexy - cleavage is as passe as pastels. Buy this at ShopBop for $64.

Tweed Front Pocket Pants


I love the front pockets on these pants! These would be great matched with some low-heel wedges and a breezy blouse, perfect for a the Winter to Spring transition. Buy them at pangaya for the sale price of $141.

Kors Cutout Wedges

Kors Cutout WedgesProbably the best design of this trend I've seen so far, but would we expect anything less from Michael Kors?? I love how wearable his pieces are! You can get these at Macy*s for $128.

Puppy Carrier

Puppy CarrierThe second I saw this bag, I burst out laughing. The design is ingenius, and the top and mesh sides unzip and inside there’s a 5" leash, plush mat, and 2 pockets. Buy it at Sugar Daisy for $275.

Saucer Ring

Saucer RingThis ring is so fresh and unique, it's almost TOO cool. But only almost. Plus, it's only $45 at Colleen Baran's store on Etsy.

Pale Pink Babydoll Dress

Pale Pink Babydoll DressThis is a to-die-for dress by DVF, but of course it's impossibly expensive, even though it's half off. The very pale pink is sweet while the black accents give it a dark, Victorian-like edge. Buy it at Serendipity Chic for $313.

Tom's Shoes

Tom's ShoesTom's shoes have been really popular for a long time. For every pair purchased the company donates a pair to a child in South America or Africa, which is very feel-good.

Capri Cargos

It's surprising to hear that military looks are in for Spring, usually they're a Fall deal. To brighten the look, wear it with light colors and fabrics. I like these pants (though kinda dark), partially because they're $200 off at $75 at Man Eater Threads.

Cropped Cardigan

The nautical look is coming for Spring and this cardigan would perfectly accent an outfit but it's not too trendy and won't end up discarded to the back of the closet until Vogue says it's ok to wear again. Buy it at the Gap for $40.

Ankle-Strap Flats

These are gonna be some of THE shoes to have this Spring. Ankle-strap flats are super cute with a short skirt or dress or even a pair of breezy capris. They're $95 at Klub Nico, which is sold out of them for the moment but you should definately pre-order a pair. They're restocking in April, which will be the perfect weather to start wearing them!

Clubbing Shorts

Hot PantsSpring is peeking its head around the corner and the warm weather is getting me excited about the cute fashions one can wear when the outside is heating up. I think everyone should own a great pair of hot pants to wear out to the clubs, and these are definitely great. Foxy! Buy them at Searle NYC for $228.

Hearts Jacket

I love the subtle heart print on this silk blazer (at first I thought they were flowers, not that the print itself is subtle). Very chic with a vintage flair, you can get it on sale at Le Train Bleu for $149 - you have to scroll down till almost the bottom to find it.

Hot Online Deals!

This week's hottest deals from The Bargainist:

Fashionweek Fall 2007 Sum Up


"It's been a really great season for salable clothes," explains Constance White, Style Director for eBay.com in the Fashiontribes videoblog interview (above). "We've returned to a lot of Americana - a lot of jackets, a lot of skirts and pants, but with a new twist: it's very glamorous and very polished. The most important shows most certainly would include Marc Jacobs, and Phillip Lim, who I loved. He is a newer talent, and we really have to have newer talent if we're going to survive and continue to be important."



  • COLOR "Yes, we saw a lot of black; yes, we saw tons of gray, and we saw a lot of navy, but hey, it's fall, what's the big deal in that? Color was the number one big trend for fall."

  • OPTIONS "The other big news is that as opposed to just dresses, there are now a lot more options for women."

  • LACE UP BOOTIES "Fall's must-have shoe."

  • MINIMAL JEWELRY There's been a strong de-emphasis on jewelry, and a lot of head emphasis whether it was those huge-brimmed hats at Marc Jacobs or great little handkerchiefs at Michael Kors. We just didn't see a lot of necklaces and earrings."

- Lesley Scott

Blingin Knuckles

Not sure what to get the gangster in your life? How about these rhinestone brass knuckles from Patricia Field!

Keep Him Tee

Maybe Cameron Diaz should be seen wearing this... though that would probably just fuel rumors on how jealous she really is. If you want it, buy it at Amazon for $117.

Day Clutch

Clutches are becoming very hip to carry to have during the day, but if you're wary of buying yet another purse to add to your collection than this one is perfect. It could easily pull double duty, going from day to night, which is my favorite type of anything! Another plus? It's only $10 at Target, definately worth every penny!

Saturday, February 17, 2007

Bette Shirt Dress

Ruffles plus pockets plus belt plus great price equals a definate must have for Spring! Buy this at Delia's for just $45. Aren't I doing great posting more stuff under $50?? I live to serve.

Side Bow Shoe

Steve Madden is probably my favorite place to buy cute shoes for low prices. This pair definately stood out to me, because you can wear them all the time but they are for from a pair of boring black pumps. Plus they're on sale for just $70!

School Girly Blouse

Japanese school girl much? This top is great to add a hint of feminine charm to an outfit. Make people think you're innocent while you plot your devilish plans! Buy it at L'Adore Boutique for $68.

I really like the colors in this plaid and the jacket is only $38!!! What a great price for a coat, which you can buy at Femina Style.

Red Velvet Couture

Check out this hip new site, Red Velvet Couture. All of its stuff is in the perfect price range (at least according to me!), which means their sales are to die for. With great designers like Dogearred, Sam Edelman, and Penny Loves Kenny, you know they definately know what's hip. If you're looking for the chicest jewelry, shoes or handbags at prices that are affordable but not so cheap you worry about the quality, than this is the place!

Monday, March 19, 2007
7:00pm
Corcoran Gallery of Art
500 17th St. NW
Washington, DC 20006

Attention fashionistas! Robin Givhan, fashion guru for The Washington Post, returns to the Corcoran, fresh from the February and March shows in New York, Milan and Paris, to discuss her take on the season’s hits and misses. With images from the shows, she shares how we can turn the runway looks into fall fashion realities. Winner of the 2006 Pulitzer Prize in criticism for her fashion coverage, Givhan is the one to turn to for the latest news and trends in the international fashion industry. Her work has been published in the International Herald Tribune, American Vogue, Marie Claire, and Essence.

Members: $20.00 Public: $25.00

Bow Halter

What a cute Celine top, the little bow adds a girlish detail to what would otherwise be a boring, almost uptight top. You can buy it at Net-A-Porter for the sale price of $312.

Affordable Mini

It's time to start updating your wardrobe for Spring! Minis are big, big, big and this one is not only tres chic, but it's also super affordable! Buy it for $35 at this great site Mango which has tons of super cute clothes for cheap.

Star Pendant

Lots of celebs love jewely by Jessica Hicks, Ali Larter, Michele Trachtenberg, Jessica Alba, and Sarah Jessica Parker to name a few. The most popular of her pieces is this star pendant, which you can buy in silver for $55 or gold for a considerably more pricey $280.

Button Loop Cardigan

I remember loving Paul Frank when I was younger, and I think this cardigan is just so cute and comfy looking! Plus, it's 65% off at just $27 at Karma Loop.

At Home Tan

Spending all your well earned bucks on Mystic Tan? Well, consider this an investment, a tanning spray gun of your very own! It costs $175, which isn't too bad, but refills are $65... I don't know how many applications you'd get out of a cartriage, but I would hope it's more than 50, otherwise it wouldn't be worth it. Each cartriage holds 4 oz, so I would guess it would provide a lot of glow unless you were SERIOUSLY tanorexic. Buy it at Sephora.

Frayed Silk Pants

These pants look like an oil painting to me and I love it! Perfect for a creative event, like an art gallery exibit, an indie movie premiere or some avant-garde theatre, wear these if you don't mind standing out from the crowd. Buy them at Stars + Infinite Darkness for $225.

Knit Hoodie Dress

I adore hoods on unexpected pieces, and this dress is a great example! It looks like something you could wear to work or lounge around the house in, which I love since being comfy no matter what is very important to me (with the exception of shoes, of course!). I'm not sure how I feel about the bat sleeves, but since it's on sale for $156 at Coco & Delilah, I figured I would let all my readers know about it.

Gucci Slippers

Want to feel deliciously decadant in the morning? Slide on a pair of Gucci slippers to keep your tootsies warm! If I had these, I'd never want to leave the house. Buy them at Bluefly for $200.

Knit "Neck Cozy"

Since it's FREEZING out there, here's a little something to keep you warm. I know, you probably already own about 5 zillion scarves (I know I do), but this is slightly different and thus totally worth. Buy it at Wing NYC for $35.
