This dress is great, it totally reminds me of the funky style of Custo Barcelona! It's definitely unique and not something you'll see 20 people wearing to the same event. Buy it at Blondette for $108.

Fall is coming, Fall is coming! Here's an example of the upcoming Fall shoes, from what I've seen I would say that heels are chunkier and platforms, animal prints and wedges are still in. Although the wedge has got a curvier shape to it. You can get a head start and buy these from Piperlime for $125.
I was in a club bathroom many years ago using blotting paper when a girl asked if she could use a piece. I gave her a few and she told me that the disposable toilet seat covers found in many public restrooms were made from the same material and were great for face blotting! I had never even thought about that but try it next time you feel oily and see how awesome it is!
Well if Kate Moss and Posh Spice are doing it than it must be cool... you can buy these shiny leggings at Mango online (sold out in most stores) for $17. Since the site won't let me link directly, go to the garment category leggins to find them. I can't imagine how skinny you'd have to be for them to look good on you!
In case you didn't know, A burka is a full-length garment worn by some Muslim women. The "Burkini" is a new phenomenon in Australia–basically a burka Muslim women can wear to the beach and swim in. It's even become popular with women of other religions as it certainly protects from sun damage. The Burkini is made from ultraviolet- and water-protected polyester and sells for $125-$160. You can purchase one from Ahiida if this is up your ally.

Huzzah for being able to wear long shorts to work! Of course, that depends on your office, but a lot of places seem to think it's ok. These are great because they have a subtle funky edge to them without being too out there. Buy at Paper-Doll for $142.
If your office tends to be a bit on the chilly side, why not toss on this wrap in beautiful turquoise! Originally retailled at $218, but it's on clearance sale at Bluefly for just $111! I just need to wait a week so I can get it on next month's credit card bill instead of this month's!
Pretty much everyone made a big fuss about the ivory version of these bangles, but I prefer these new black ones a lot more! The just have a glammer feel to them and you can buy them at RavinStyle for $125 each.

I'm not 100% sure how I feel about this dress, it looks a little baggy on Ashlee Simpson. But I love the color and neck and it's by Maria Bonita Extra which is sharply growly in popularity. Of course, it's $600 at ShopBop but if you're in NY maybe you can find it at the sale!

You may be sick of hearing me bitch about not having enough Summer skirts, and if so than you should buy me this and I promise to be quiet for at least a month! The colors are absolutely fabulous, fun and bright and yet somehow soothing... ahhhhhh. Buy this in regular or petite (thank you!!!!) at the Skirt Spot for just $46.

Not just any linen.... ITALIAN linen, oh snap! If you're like me, you hate your thighs but want to wear fancy shorts out more often. I think these are a decent length, really short but still managing to cover up more than most really short shorts. Buy in brown or orangy red at Bebe for $79.

These boots are brilliant, since they're canvas you can fold over the top or slouch the down or pull them up straight for three different looks! They come in black, brown and ivory and the best part is they only cost $48 at Zu-Zu-b!!!!! Boy I love affordable fashion.
This plus-sized printed dress just is bright and fun and only $79 (originally $118).
I don't care what anyone says, skinny jeans are still in! This pair is great if you're short because they're ankle length. Originally $179, they're now $107!

They look really comfy and lots of people are talking about them so pre-order yours today (to be shipped Aug 17) at Bliss for $45 in red, blue or black.
The man who never met an animal print he didn't like, Italian designer Roberto Cavalli, will be coming out with a collection for H&M. Unlike many capsule collections created by high-end fashion names for mass retailers, Cavalli's line, which will no doubt be full of colorful, printed pieces, will include clothing for both women and men, specifically, 20 pieces for men and 25 for women (including lingerie and accessories). The clothing will be available in select H&M stores on November 8th. In the press release emailed early this morning announcing the decision, Cavalli stated that he "will add a dash of festivity and dreams" to H&M. We think that, for one, the H&M on 34th Street is in most need of festivity and dreams, as when we visit that location it's always filled with frustration, despair and tourists.
With this year's designer collaboration H&M opens its doors to the exclusive world of Roberto Cavalli. The Italian designer will create a one-off collection for women and men exclusively for H&M. The line will carry the vital touch and the intense sensuality typical of Roberto Cavalli, one of the world's most exciting and creative fashion designers.
"Roberto Cavalli has created a world of his own, iconic and full of fantasy, when it comes to colours, prints, and style. There is no place for shyness and no possibility of ending up with a mainstream wardrobe of everyday basics. The Roberto Cavalli collections represents an exuberant, successful lifestyle", says Margareta van den Bosch.
"As the first Italian designer in the history of H&M, I enthusiastically welcomed this invitation, proud to bring the lively and positive spirit of my work to a new audience, who will be able to see and interpret my style in an individual way. I love freedom and challenges: breaking down barriers, experimenting in different directions. H&M is all this for me. I will add a dash of festivity and dreams", explains Roberto Cavalli.
The "Roberto Cavalli at H&M" collection will be available in approximately 200 selected H&M stores worldwide for a limited period of time starting from November 8th 2007.
The line will consist of iconic menswear, 20 pieces, and womenswear, 25 pieces, including lingerie plus matching accessories.
Thanks to his boundless creativity, Roberto Cavalli is known as a designer to the stars and the international jet set. He regularly dresses international personalities: Madonna, Beyoncé, Gwyneth Paltrow, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lopez, Sharon Stone, Gong Li, Victoria Beckham, Lenny Kravitz and Adrien Brody. Mr Cavalli's vision is synonymous with glamour and a sensual, revolutionary style. Florentine craftsmanship and tradition combine with a love of colour, embellishment and prints inspired by nature translates into a unique, inimitable style.
Today the Roberto Cavalli universe includes signature collections for both men and women. There is Just Cavalli for a young audience, and Class Cavalli a diffusion collection as well as the Angels and Devils collection for boys and girls.
In addition there is also beachwear, lingerie, shoes, eyewear, watches and perfumes. Other products from the world of Roberto Cavalli are accessories for the home, wine and vodka.
