Dolce & Gabbana Look: Looking Glam, Going Green, Paying Less

Dolce Gabbana Pre-Fall 2008

Dolce Gabbana Pre-Fall 2008

I laugh every time I remember that The Devil Wears Prada scene in which Andi (Anne Hathaway) meekly asks how to spell Dolce & Gabbana during her first day of working for a fashion magazine. It seems almost absurd to think that someone today could not know this iconic fashion house. Read more

Say what you want about The Hills, but I still tune in every week to see what the ladies of MTV’s LA-based reality show are wearing. Of all the cast members, Audrina’s style would have to be my favorite. Every time I see her, she manages to  look comfortable yet incredibly stylish. Read more

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

Versace 2009 Spring Collection

Versace 2009 Spring Collection

I find this outfit from Versace’s 2009 Spring Ready-to-Wear collection to be so stunning. Simplicity appears to be the order of the day, with emphasis on clean, sleek lines and not many intricate details. There is something very city-chic about this Versace masterpiece and I’d wear it in a heartbeat. Read more

Ahead of the trends: Ashley Olsen

Ashley Olsen appears to always a step ahead of the trends. This photo was taken in 2006, while the dress and leather jacket combo that she’s wearing in the photo didn’t go big until late last year.

Motorcycle Jacket ($249, Bebe)

Leather is a great way to dress down and add some edge to more formal, feminine pieces . It’s certainly practical for spring and early summer, when nighttime is still a bit chilly and you need to wear a little something over a dress. The jacket I’ve chosen mimics the length Ashley’s cropped jacket, which is what I think keeps the look from crossing over to the grunge side. I, personally, wouldn’t pay much less for a leather jacket. This is an investment piece that will last you through several seasons, without showing wear and tear like cheaper alternatives would.

Babydoll Dress ($14.50, Forever 21)

Babydoll Dress ($14.50, Forever 21)

At only $14.50, this babydoll dress is a pretty fab find. Its simplicity makes it a blank canvas that screams to be accessorized. A gold bangle and ring, like Ashley is wearing, go really well with white. I’ve picked two pretty ornate rings, but, again, the simplicity of the dress leaves room for endless possibilities.

The bangle set ($9, Claire’s) I chose includes a couple of wood ones, which I think work really well with this color palette. The variety of textures in the jewelry provide a nice contrast against the white linen of the dress. With the bracelets and rings, I’d say the necklace is not a necessity. But if it is for you, necklaces made of white shells–perfect for a summer look–are really easy to find, often for under $5. Be sure to pick one up from a boardwalk gift shop next time you find yourself at the beach!
