Tartan

Is tartan hot hot hot for Fall?

Tweed Wide Leg TrouserIf you're searching for the perfect pair of pants for this Fall/Winter, than look no more! These wide leg tweed pants are exactly what you need and are only $129 at Bebe.

Bluefly Sales

Hopefully you all know that today is the last day of the Bluefly Semi-Annual Sale. What you may not know is that they're having a special secret cashmere sale today too... just through email. So here's the link because we all know I can't keep secrets!

Feather Bangle

Feather BangleWink NYC is having a 30% off sale (except items already on sale) by using the code "DCWINK" at checkout. I particularly like these feather bangles for $38. A lot of designers are using feather accents for Fall 2007, making these must have items!

Tartan Blouse

Tartan BlouseI love the punky prep look of tartan, especially in blues and purples. This blouse at Ralph Lauren for $245 is great for spicing up your work look

Lust for Less: Studded Belt

Leather and studs are coming in this Fall. Of course, you don't want to go over the top, you'd look like you were wearing a costume. Plus, who can afford the new leather jackets coming out? But a trendy accent piece is just the thing to update your look while saving money... MAYBE.

I saw this studded belt at Intuition before I saw the price tag, and was just shocked. $99 for a studded belt? Don't even get me started on how expensive the rocker belt is!

Especially when you can get this near copy at TopShop for £15 or about $30. Put the remaining $69 in savings for a matching Harley.

Quick Choosing Glasses Guide

YOUR EYEGLASSES SHOULD CONTRAST, NOT MIMIC, THE SHAPE OF YOUR FACE. Here's a quick guide, courtesy of renowned eyeglass designer Richard Morgenthal.

Your shape: Heart
Your specs: A heart-shaped face already has a lot of definition. Since your head is top-heavy, go for a geometric frame that gives some width to the lower half of your face.

Your shape: Square
Your specs: Since a square face already has angles, go for a round or oval frame that shapes your cheekbones. A decorative frame with width will often do the trick.

Your shape: Round
Your specs: Avoid dark frames; they only make your face appear heavy. A round face needs direction, so opt for angular and narrow frames-never a square or a circle.

Your shape: Oval
Your specs: A modern rectangle is best for an oval face. Because your face is longer than it is wide, you'll need frames that provide width. If your face is wider than it is long, go the opposite way.

Cropped Herringbone Jacket

Cropped Herringbone JacketThis hooded cropped jacket is perfect for Fall weather! It'll cover your hair if it rains and it'll protect from the slightly dropping temps. Buy it on sale at eLuxury for $164.

Pepper Spray Ring

Pepper Spray RingHmm, this is an interesting concept. While I'm not a big fan of the ring design, I have to say I like the idea. Though I could see it accidentally being set off with amusing and painful results. The ring sprays a super strong pepper spray up to 12 inches and if refillable. It's a great way to feel safe, and you can buy it in gold-plated or silver for $30 at Protect Yourself Direct, and refills are $8 each.

Metallic Party Dress

Metallic Party DressWhether going to Homecoming or a Fashion Week party, this dress will cause you to stand out without making you look desperate for attention. Confidence in silk form, you can buy this number at ShopBop for the sale price of $175.

Super Flare Trouser

Super Flare TrouserWide-legged pants are coming back into style, but if you're petite like me you tend to look swallowed up in billowy pants. This is why flares are a great option, they have the volume without taking over. Buy these at Free People for $128.

White Linen Sequin Fish SkirtI heart fishes, especially ones that are sparkly! The white and the silver look great together and you can buy this Tory Burch skirt on sale now at Bluefly for $170.

Hollywood Ready Hair

Dove has a mini mockumentary showing what it takes to get celebrity hair, and I have to say it's pretty accurate. It's hard to have real expectations of yourself when there are so many beautiful, styled & photoshopped women out there, but you gotta remember to love who you are and all that feel good stuff.

Knotted Dress

Knotted DressI like simple, classic pieces that have a slightly unique twist on them (this time literally. ha!). You can buy this deep purple dress at French Connection for $118.

Thursday, August 23, 2007

Brown Work Shorts

Brown Work ShortsI know some people think that wearing shorts to work just isn't acceptable, but these cover just as much as a pencil skirt. And they're not exactly casual. You can buy them at Queen Bee, originally $172 and marked down to just $86.

Lust For Less: Puffy Vest

One way to update your wardrobe for Fall is to rock the puffy quilted look.
Theory Puffy Vest

Leaf Umbrella

It's like when tiny gnomes or elves use leaves for umbrellas! These are just so cute and unique and cost $48 at POAA.com, though shipping can be expensive, depending and where you are.

Mandarin Shirt Dress

Mandarin Shirt DressI like how this dress has unique touches that set it apart from other shirt dresses, like the mandarin collar and the banded hem. And the color is just fabulous! Buy this for the sale price of $110 at Active Endeavors.
