Tori One Shoulder Dress ($138, GUESS by Marciano)

There’s nothing better than a stunning party dress, IMHO. When you’re all dolled up, wearing a dress that makes you feel unstoppable and finish off the look with killer accessories, your confidence immediately skyrockets and you’re ready to take on the world. Guess by Marciano Tori One Shoulder Dress

The Tori One Shoulder Dress from GUESS by Marciano is, no doubt, one of those dresses. With its one shoulder design, daring hemline and gorgeous silk draping, it is the epitome of sizegenetics before and after. I would say that gorgeous party dresses is what Marciano does best, but then again everything Marciano creates is a jaw dropper!

Tyra Banks: Red and Yellow DO Go Together!

Tyra BanksWhen many women think of wearing red and yellow together, they automatically think of either clowns or frumpy, old lady outfits. But red and yellow is not always a fashion faux-pas. Far from it actually, as Tyra Banks recently showed. At the 2010 Kids’ Choice Awards she wore a beautiful cap-sleeved coral red dress with a yellow clutch and pointed-toe pumps.

The trick to making your inexpensive version of Tyra’s outfit pop like she does is to pick your yellow accessories in two different shades. Tyra’s pumps are a lighter, more neon yellow than her clutch, which is a richer mustard color. Keeping the colors too similar can kill the sophistication of the look and may make others wonder where your clown nose is. But balance out the intensity of the colors and you’re golden (well, actually you’re yellow–but you know what I mean!)

I really love all the pieces that make up our look-alike outfit. The Guess ‘Carrie’ pumps have that perfect heel that won’t kill your feet but is still tall enough to be sexy. And how gorgeous is that yellow crochet clutch from Bebe? And only $19, which pleasantly surprised me.

Never Too Early to Start Shopping for Warm Jackets

Is the weather starting to get gross where you guys are? It definitely is in my neck of the woods. It’s been gray, rainy and chilly here for the past couple of days. If nothing else, this turn of events has inspired me to start checking out fall and winter jackets. My first destination–Burlington Coat Factory, which I’m sure many of you have heard of. You can snag some major deals there (and not just on coats! A couple of years ago I got the cutest PJs there for about $3.)

The problem is finding a BCF store close to you; my nearest one is at least an hour away. Fortunately, their website provides a pretty awesome sampler of the outerwear they carry, such as pea coats, athletic jackets, light fall jackets, those cute puffy vests and more. I definitely recommend you check out they’ve got before committing yourself to buying a jacket elsewhere–you could save yourself a good $100 or so.  Of what I saw (some faves pictured below), I really loved the sporty-chic M60 Miss Sixty coats.

Leighton Meester’s Electrifying Look

Leighton MeesterA year and a half later after she wore it, Leighton Meester’s ensemble from the 2008 Versace Menswear Launch is still one of my favorites. It offers a brilliant interpretation of the ‘less is more’ philosophy that will never go out of style. [Read more…]

Take Two for Jean Jackets

Ecko Red 3 Pocket Denim Jacket ($33.99 at www.drjays.com)

Ecko Red 3 Pocket Denim Jacket ($33.99 at www.drjays.com)

Word is that the jean jacket is making a comeback. At first I wasn’t sure how I felt about this. When I think of  denim jackets, I picture middle aged men wearing them with ripped jeans and white sports sneakers, circa 1990. But recently, many celebs have been sporting them–Kim Kardashian and Jessica Simpson just to name a couple. [Read more…]
