Lash Out!

Shu Uemura are the leaders for creating exquisite false eyelashes. We found similar lashes at Forever21 so now you can get the look for less.

Designer Love

Dolce & Gabbana's Fall RTW 'o9 looks are just spectacular! They really got it right this season plus just stick a long tee underneath any of these, pair them up with a black pair of tights and hello, fiercely frum modest gal!

Romatic Ruffles

This summer these ruffle tops have taken over and are seen everywhere! Well great news ladies, they're sticking around for fall too.

Totally Inspired by...

Above: Becki Newton and Kate Bosworth both rocking the 3.1 Phillip Lim's Winding Zipper Dress. We found this cute hairband at Forever21 that totally reminds us of this darling dress.

Obsession of the Day

Proenza Schouler Cropped Jacket for US$2250
Ok...I know this jacket is pretty impractical and if you have any sort of curves it will look terrible on you but come on! this jacket is FIERCE!

Styling Tip

D&G Dolce & Gabbana Fall '09 Collection

This look is so amazing - it gives me chills. Firstly, NO BLACK! The silhouette is very lean and gives a great slimming effect. The sweater is darker than the dress so it makes your eye focus on only the middle sections, hence, making you just that skinny. Lastly, the belt is in a brighter hue so it sucks you in at your smallest part of the body and really defines your waist. All together you look about 10lbs smaller. LOVES IT!

Beautiful Blouses

Fall fashions are slowly creeping into stores right now, so while we are enjoying summer clothes keep in mind that the fashion industry is always two steps ahead. They have resort clothes for 2010 already! So just sit back in your flip flops and enjoy checking out these fancy fall blouses.

Fedora Fun

One of Shopbop.com's top sellers is this adorable fedora below and I can see why! Now you can get the look for less at Urban Outfitters.

Summer Scarves

I love the look of a great scarf complementing your outfit. Luckily companies have decided they like it too and have started making lightweight scarves that can be worn during the summertime. Here are some of my favs.

I have been obsessing with Rachel Leigh accessories ever since they debuted all over Gossip Girl. Check out her adorable collections here!

Max it Out

Maxi dresses are one of the hottest summer items this year. They are super flattering on pretty much anyone just be careful you chose the correct print for your body type. Petite ladies go for a small simple print, larger ladies should avoid large prints and consider solids with embelished tops.

Navy is Hot Hot

A couple weeks ago, I was on my eurotrip when I found myself looking at all the women in Italy and noticed something - none of them were wearing black! The same went for France. I have to say these women looked great! They paired their navy looks with yellow, whites, and some rich browns. If you wear your navy right, you can even pair it with some black but only try and pull off navy and black if you're very sure you know what you're doing. Navy is such a great look that really pulls off great with every color so lets bring it back! I know I am.

Summer Brights

Blake Lively dazzled us a few weeks ago at the 2009 CFDA awards wearing a Michael Kors frock from his Fall RTW '09 Collection. Here are some great pieces that you can use to liven up your summer wardrobe.

Great Skirt Alert

Right now I'm loving this Kimchi Blue High-Waisted Skirt for US$68. Dress it up during the summer with heels and fitted top or dress it down with gladiators and a cardi. This is also a great transitional piece for fall by just pairing it up with some black tights.

Tiffany & Co. Awareness

Tiffany & Co. is reaching out with coral conservation awareness by decking their store windows all over the globe with an "Under the Sea" theme to raise awareness about the damaging consequences of coral harvesting.
