With the help of a few Fab accessories, Emmy Rossum takes a little black and white print dress from 'laxed hippie to street chic. She layers with a cool, knit vest, defines the waist with a wide woven belt ($8), and instead of the predictable sandal, finishes the look with an edgier black bootie ($195). Just click the items above to shop a similar style.

Since chatting with the Jewel Mint designer, our girl crush on Kate Bosworth only intensified. Trust the talented beauty to take monochromatic gray and make it totally boho-cool. Adding a wrap-style mini ($135), western booties ($145), and unique jewels to a sweatshirt-style top takes the look from basic to casual chic — and one we'll be replicating here at Fab. Just click the items above to shop a similar look.

Fedoras may be a bit tired, but the flat top fedora makes the look new again.

I went wild over the Diane von Furstenberg Kindle 2 cases that came out earlier this year, and now owners of the latest-edition Kindle can get their own designer cases from the fashion house, along with a few other well-known labels. DVF is back and brought friends like Cole Haan, Timbuk2, Belkin, BUILT, and LeSportsac to the Kindle case game. My favorites are the DVF (obviously) and Cole Haan cases, which are on the more expensive side, but good news — they are cheaper than the older-generation editions.
I can't get enough of DVF's fabric Garden Animal ($85) and Ikat Berry ($85) cases, while Cole Haan's hand-stained leather Green Floral Print ($99), Woven Leather ($119), and Pebble Grain Leather ($99) cases exude class and sophistication. I'm definitely picking up one of these babies if I happen to upgrade to a new Kindle. What about you?

Kids can slip their feet into mommy's brand of shoes. Following on the success of Cole Haan's limited-edition crib shoes a few years ago, the company will have a kids' shoe section at major retailers like Bloomingdale's, Nordstrom, and Zappos.com. The Cole Haan Kids collection (ranging from $35 to $79) will include classic styles such as the quilted, metallic Mary Jane shown here and a pebbled leather loafer, for boys, girls, and "pre-walkers." With Nike Air technology built right into the shoes, the kicks are playground-ready.
Every year the week before school started, my mother bought me a new pair of shoes. Because I love shoes, I've kept up the tradition all these years after graduation. My life involves a lot of walking, so as lovely as they look, high heels are not a staple for me. I have rounded up some comfy yet cute shoes to help you keep on the move in your daily life. Save the heels for evening!
I have been a fan of Dansko for years. Easy to kick off when I needed to demonstrate a Pilates exercise and perfect for standing at the counter prepping dinner, clogs have been my mainstay. But Dansko has expanded its footwear line to include boots, both knee and ankle heights, and flats. I'm liking the looks of these Penelope boots ($220). The low heel is a wedge for even more foot support.
Hopefully, tonight's episode of Gossip Girl will be juicier than last week's. They do tend to get juicier and juicier. Until then, let's break down Blair's refined attire. I love how her jeweled sleeveless top and tweed skirt exude slick sophistication. For adornments, she added a funky touch via a mixed metal chain bracelet. The ultimate finishing touch? The ever so dapper Chuck Bass — swoon.
Photographer Todd Selby was asked by Cole Haan to cast, photograph, and interview a group of people who he found inspiring for the brand's Spring Summer 2010 campaign. He selected store owners, gallery directors, athletes, DJs, musicians, and photographers, and photographed many of them in their homes. Naturally, they all had stylish digs. My favorite of all those featured was this bedroom belonging to a Russian lady whose success arguably has as much to do with her athletic prowess as her beauty. Can you guess who she is?
Scarlett Johansson played the part of retro queen outside the David Letterman studios in NYC. The actress opted for a taupe draped dress for her appearance, as well as a gray ruffled coat and nude platform sandals. But the real stunners here are her dramatic cat-eye sunglasses and plump red lips. PS. What's up with the shattered car window in the background? Crazy . . .
