I'm not usually a huge fan of Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. clothing line: It's too busy and flashy for me, and I can't deal with the high doses of gothic lettering and leopard-print motifs. But her Spring 2007 collection, unveiled Friday at
New York Fashion Week, is going in a more appealing direction for me.
Inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer's look in the 1983 film Scarface, the line of evening wear and tailored sportswear was more 1970s New York than 1990s Los Angeles. I particularly liked the floor-sweeping graphic-print dresses, gold-lame hot pants, and the eye-catching octagonal gold belt buckles. There were, however, a few examples of Gwen's stalwart style that I found rather hideous—namely, the rainbow-fade handbag and garish sweats. But all in all, this is some of the best L.A.M.B. stuff I've seen yet. To see all of Fabsugar's Fashion Week coverage, click here. To see the rest of the L.A.M.B. collection, read more
If you're in need of a morning pick-me-up—perhaps after a night of too much drinking or too little sleep—a tingly, cool face scrub can be a great way to wake yourself up and rejuvenate your skin at the same time. Here are my favorite cool and refreshing finds.
Neutrogena Deep Clean Invigorating Foaming Scrub, $6.99, available here. Heavy-duty microbeads add oomph to this scrub, which actually feels cold on contact.
Origins Mint Wash, $17.50, available here. This spearmint-scented liquid gel gets foamy as you massage it in.
Two more, so read more
On Friday I asked you guys to come Fab Finding with me to put together an edgy office look like this one that paraded down the runways at Rag & Bone. I found this pair of Calvin Klein Veyron Pants, available here for $282, and asked you guys to find the rest. Though I've only been doing one Fab Find Follow-Up a week, I liked your picks so much on this outfit that I decided to do another one. Everyone had a slightly different interpretation, but here are my favorite finds from different users. (To learn what a Fab Find is and how to make one, click here.)
