Halloween Last Minute

So you just realized Halloween is next week and don't have a costume?? I have two possible ideas that are cheap & easy for you!
The first one is a "Prom Night" costume. Just find a cheap evening dress (Forever 21, Charlotte Russe or H&M are good places to look - the one I found is $25 at Wet Seal!), buy some fake blood to splatter all over it, and finish off with some pumps and a tiara!
The second look assumes you already have skinny black pants, a white button down shirt and a blazer. To become Karl Lagerfeld, all you need to add is a tie, some fingerless driving gloves, sunglasses and maybe a few bits of bling. And don't forget the silver hairspray!

Lindsey Lohan's Purse for Charlotte Ronson

Lindsey Lohan has helped create a limited edition purse for friend Charlotte Ronson. The handbag, a slouchy canvas satchel with leather pockets and studded charms, is exclusive to Charlotte Ronson stores in Japan and costs 29,400 yen, or $295.91. Is Lilo heading towards the actress / designer slashie?? First leggings, now a purse, and supposedly she's in talks with Italy’s Fornarina about developing a more full-fledged fashion collection!
Sigh, another country that needs to send me pieces not sold here in the States, maybe I should start some sort of international fashion swapping community...

Designer to Watch: Mikhael Kale

Mikhael Kale Fall 2008Mikhael Kale is a true up and coming designer who's getting tons of buzz from fashion insiders! Picked up by the Canadian Luxury retail chain Holt Renfrew after only showing two collections, he studied in London at Central Saint Martins and worked in Milan. His style is very gothic, techno-inspired - sleek, sexy and architectural. I love his pieces, but haven't found any online yet, which is driving me nuts! Could one of our friends up North please help me out?

Aztec Print Sweater

Aztec Print SweaterI really like the print of this French Connection sweater, though it feels more "ski lodge" than Aztec - know what I mean? Either way, but it for $168 at Dillard's.

Sparkly Jersey Blouse

Sparkly Jersey BlouseIf you look closely, you'll see this Moschino blouse is black with shiny gold threads running through it - very pretty! Originally $290, it's now on sale for $203 at French Corner Soho.

Gucci Embroiled in ‘Spy Scandal’

"Prosecutors in Italy suspect Gucci Group staff of breaking into the Ministry of the Interior's data bank. Which means Gucci's got a full-on spy scandal on their hands! We know this is probably a horrible, horrible, annoying thing for Gucci to deal with, but labeling it a "spy scandal" gives it such a James Bond glam quality — and everything Gucci's involved in must be glam, after all. Gucci offices in Italy could be in disarray since prosecutors ordered a search of them this week. Italian authorities have ordered the arrest of seven people they suspect of obtaining information illegally, including Carlo Del Bo, Gucci’s former head of security. A Gucci spokesman said the company must ensure its suppliers don't employ child laborers and make regular tax payments and they don't know how this information is obtained. But many private investigators in Italy are former cops or tax officers, so they could have access to secret data banks and files.

Del Bo's arrest is also connected to a wiretapping scandal. In July it was reported that Alessandra Facchinetti's phone was tapped when she headed design for Gucci, though no one knows why."

I wonder if a Fendi Spy bag was carried throughout the thing!

Lust for Less: Leather Blazer

I love the sleek look of a leather blazer, but they can be quite pricey!

This Alexander Wang one from Shop Bop is a massive $1,350!

I really like this one by Madison Marcus, but it's still an investment at $876 at Pink Mascara.

So here's probably the best deal I found, costing $340 at Bloomingdale's and coming in red, black or brown.

But times are tough, so here's on more option, a ruched collar blazer from Newport News on sale for $189.

Velvet Gray Button Coat

Velvet Gray Button CoatI suppose all the buttons makes this velvet coat military-inspired, but I think just think it looks cool! Buy at Anthropologie for $228.

Pleated Ankle Roll Pant

Pleated Ankle Roll PantYay, be just like Katie Holmes and wear these with fun heels! Just don't wear them over mid calf boots, for some reason I just can't get behind the cropped pants with boots look! Buy at Urban Outfitters for $68.

Wool Ombré Skirt

Wool Ombré SkirtI'm not sure how I feel about beige to black ombré visually, but it's so versatile that I still obsess over it! Wear black or brown shoes with this skirt, it doesn't matter! Or, best of all, some hot pink crocodile pumps. Buy at Bloomingdale's for $109.
