10 Jumpers Under $100!

Hey guess what. I FREAKING HATE hot weather.

What I'm trying to say is, check out 10 really cute jumpers that flatter lots of body types (also, can I just say, I HATE the term "bodycon." It's dumb. Please stop saying it) AND cost less than $100! Also, why do they call them jumpers? Playsuits? Whatever. I just wanna spend all of the days between now and October laying around in airconditioning and wishing I lived in John Ritter's apartment in Three's Company.

($93.78, Totem,
L-L-L-Love the lips!

HORSES? On a JUMPER? Could America GET any better?

I am thisclose to buying this.

One of my favey things about jumpers: they're thisclose to being pajamas.

($97, Fluxus,
This one would be so cute with a tiny tank underneath. A tank of YOUR CHOOSING! You can just DO WHATEVER YOU WANT!

($98, Gestuz,
Your garden variety harem-style jumper. No big whoop.

So it's technically a dress, but whatevs. It's late.

($39, Lulus)
Fun! Picnicky!

($69, Sass & Bide,
Mmmm. Love me some elastic waistband!

($88, Lark & Wolff by Steven Alan, Urban Outfitters)
The sorta-fancy, dress-up-for-work yachting jumper. For your business meetings. On a boat.

Night night!

Perforated Plz: F-Troupe's White Patent Leather Saddle Shoes

($158, f-troupe,
Usually white shoes are a HUGE nein, but these white patent perforated saddle shoes -- they're perforated with teensy little STARS -- break through the busted code and come out clear on the side of awesome sauce. And they remind me of the Steve Madden Skiip perforated flats I loved for so long.

A cursory Internet search brings up only the 8.5 at Zappos, so, if you're a 8.5 AND you want these shoes, it's SO your lucky day!

Fashion Must-Haves of This Season. Fashion Spring-Summer 2009.

Here come nine most fashionable things of the Summer 2009. Fashionable clothes, shoes and accessories that you MUST have in your wardrobe this summer.

1. Heel-strap sandal booties.
This Fall and Winter we get used to booties. And now in summer neither fashion-conscious people nor designers want to part with them. As a result we have very open booties or very closed sandals. You can wear them on bare feet or with pantyhose. Sandal booties look very sexy and beautiful. Anyway this must-have is a real hit of the catwalks. Look for them in Yves Saint Laurent, Kenzo, Maison Martin Margiela, Paul Smith, Chanel and Alexander McQueen's collections.

Models Chanel and Bottega Veneta

2. Overalls.
This summer overalls will compete with our favorite dresses, all the more so fashion designers prepared for us many variants of the overalls. You can put on black classical overall going to your office, light coloured overall is good for party, short cotton overall is for beach. Interesting models of overalls you can find in Moschino Cheap & Chic, D&G, Missoni and Fendi's collections.

Matthew Williamson, Fendi and D&G's models

3. Stylish separate swimsuit.
Such swimsuits make silhouettes visually more graceful and this makes them very popular! But there is one disadvantage about them - sunburn will be quite fanciful. But designers of such trends as Agent Provocateur, La Perla, Topshop and Marc by Marc Jacobs are absolutely comfortable with that!

Models Melissa Odabash and Topshop

4. Sunglasses Ray-Ban Wayfarer.
Sunglasses Ray-Ban Wayfarer are "HELLO" from 80's. In 80's they were extremely popular in Hollywood. Let's remember "The Blues Brothers" with Daniel Aykroyd and John Belushi or "Rain Man" with Tom Cruise. Today the Ray-Ban sunglasses are favourite accessory of Hollywood celebrities such as Nicole Richie, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Mischa Barton and others.

5. Military style of jackets.
This thing became must-have in spring Fashion Week in Paris. According to streetstyle photos it is the most popular attire there. Duh! This thing underlines a figure very nicely!
3.1 Phillip Lim, Balmain, Topshop

6. Antique style dresses.
In new season ancient Greek goddess is a beauty standard for many designers and modelers. Asymmetric light dresses with complicated drapery are very popular. Versace, Valentino, Elie Saab and Lanvin offer us such chic attires.

Lanvin, Elie Saab, Versace

7. Torn jeans.
This season the condition of the jeans is much more important than its shape. This summer jeans style of 90's is very popular. Small and big holes, long and short. Many holes or just few of them - as you wish. Besides you can make this fashionable thing by yourself! Or you can find it in Balmain, Acne or House of Holland collections.

8. Bright shawls.
Here comes hippie and ethnic style! It keeps make us glad. This accessory will make any boring classical suit positive and summery. It can be tied up as a turban on your head.

Dior, Paul Smith, Missoni.

9. Wide bangles.
Wide bangles are extremely fashionable three summers running. However this season we can see wooden bangles not only plastic ones. Besides, this summer you can wear two or even three wide bangles on one wrist. It is very fashionable!

Plastic bangles Fendi, wooden bangles Bottega Veneta

Ariel Gordon: Not-Boring Wedding Rings For Not A Fortune

($1,240, Ariel Gordon)
Check out L.A. jewelry designer Ariel Gordon's wonderfully modern geometrical 14-karat gold "Hex" ring with diamond points. I'd definitely wear this as a wedding ring (except I'm going to try to uphold the Jewish tradition of wearing a solid, unbroken band with no ornamentation or stones.) Of course, I'd wear it ANYWAY as a REGULAR ring if someone would like to purchase it for me, say, as a gift for being an awesome blogger. The Hex ring also comes in 10-karat gold for $880.

I love how modern and clean it is but also quietly chic AND kind of looks like a nut. Not like a squirrel nut but like whatever people who use tools use for things.

Also, Ariel won Shopstyle's emerging designer competition, so if you enter "SHOPSTYLE" on Ariel Gordon's site, you can get 25% off your purchase!... Of the Hex ring... for me!

... Plus, check out Spike pendant:
($315, Ariel Gordon)
Which would look positively smart AND menancing with... EVERYTHING (on me!)

ADORBS ALERT: Tarina Tarantino Feather Drop Earri

($70, Tarina Tarantino,
I'm ruving these Tarina Tarantino feather/ rhinestone drop earrings. Most of you (meeeee tooo included) immediately think of Disney when you think Tarina Tarantino, and while I love her signature Disney pieces too, I love these feathery earrings -- espesh the '70s-meets-nows juxtaposish between the old-school roach clip feathers and the mall punk colors. Can't handle bright pink and electric blue? Go more old-school roach clip:

Also, two things: Karmaloop ALWAYS has promo codes. Try sn23820. AND, I met Tarina Tarantino! She ruuuuuuuules!

The $1 Million Peacock Wedding Dress

I don't really care if the ENTIRE PEACOCK POPULATION needs to be become extinct in order for me to own this peacock dress, exhibited at a wedding expo at in China. I just WANT it. Main factor deterrent -- I don't have 2000+ peacocks. Other issue: I don't have $1.5 million dollars. Minor setbacks. Actually, no, I don't want it. It's sorta scary looking, and it makes me feel like we all owe peacocks a major apology. I just wanted to make that joke about the entire peacock population becoming extinct to make one dress.

Witness the horror yourself at LuxuryLaunches. Or, check out more reasonable peacock fashions, dresses and accessories.

Savvy Traveler: How to Get through the Airport in Style

Savvy Traveler: How to Get through the Airport in Style

When it comes to traveling, the one thing that most people dread most is going through the various airport security and counter check-ins. But it doesn’t have to be such a pain. So long as you prepare in advance and stick to plain manners and fashion you should hopefully be able to get through with no problems at all. We’re going to provide a few helpful hints that you can use to make your next trip go smoothly.

First off, you want to make sure to be adequately prepared and organized. This sounds like a pretty obvious hint, but it is surprisingly how much a sloppy packing job can cause problems when going through security. If you pack neatly and leave larger items (such as laptops) in an easily accessible area, it can save a lot of aggravation for both yourself and the TSA screeners.

Since many airlines are charging for check-in luggage, it’s always tempting to travel with just carry-on luggage, such as backpacks and briefcases, as this saves both time and money. But just make sure to know what you can and cannot place in carry-on luggage. Sporting goods and tools need to be checked in, as do knives, scissors, and other sharp utensils. Most significantly, make sure that all liquid and gel containers are less than 4 ounces. This can cause problems with a lot of toiletries, and I’ve certainly the past have had to be held up for carrying on a full-sized shampoo bottle or water bottle, which can be quite the hassle for yourself, the TSA employee, as well as the people waiting behind you! Fortunately most pharmacies offer toiletries in airline-approved sizes, as to airport shops (although they’ll charge you an arm and a leg).

Believe it or not what you wear can also make a difference when it comes to airport travelling. In this case, the key is to dress smart, but simple. The fact of the matter is, you are more likely to be randomly screened if you are wearing flashy clothing or clothing that someone might deem offensive, and the same can be true if you look like a slob. Dressing simply and neatly will solve this problem and will also enable you to travel more comfortably as well.

Along with the limitations on liquid and gel containers, the other big post-9/11 security change is that all passengers are required to take their shoes off when going though checkout. So it’s best to opt for flip-flops, slippers, boat shoes, loafers, or any type of footwear that is easy to remove and put back on. You certainly don’t want to be that guy holding up the screening line because you are wearing boots or other footwear that’s hard to take off! Similarly, make sure not to wear excessive jewelry or earrings, as these will have to be taken off for screening as well.

Above all, the important thing is to remain calm at all times; this is the true hallmark of a savvy traveler. Sometimes you might find yourself stuck with unforeseen delays and complications, even if you arrive early and have everything organized. Maintaining your cool, having a polite veneer, and following the golden rule will make travelling less stressful, for both yourself and your fellow travelers.

Spring-summer must have: camasa alba

Ca si the little black dress, camasa alba imprumutata din garderoba masculina este timeless, nu se demodeaza niciodata.
In vremuri de recesiune designerii readuc in prim plan aceasta piesa basic, care nu ar trebui sa lipseasca din garderoba nimanui.
Conform unui sondaj realizat printre femeile cu varste cuprinse intre 17-70 de ani, doar 17% cumpara stiluri noi, mai moderne, iar celelalte raman la cele clasice.
Versatila, camasa alba poate fi adaptata aproape oricarui stil vestimentar.
