Colorblock is no new kid on the block. Don't get me wrong — I'm not dissing the geometric pattern, but I am happy to see the boldness translate onto accessories. This is a heaven sent for those with a closet full of LBDs — throw on a colorblock accessory and your look is far from ordinary. The power of colorblock is in your hands, and feet.
Imagine this for a second: you're as plain as Plain Jane, only taller and skinnier. A lady wearing oversized Chanel shades comes up to you, out of nowhere, and tells you you can be the next It model. That's exactly what happens to Violet Greenfield in Violet on the Runway by Melissa Walker ($10).
She can either take the opportunity of a lifetime or turn it down. And guess what? She takes it and is thrown into the world of stiletto pumps and shady characters; a scene far different than what she's accustomed to. She'll need lots of luck...good luck Violet!
I know I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but it still confuses me when people wear tights in hot weather. Exhibit A: Kate Beckinsale while Halloween shopping. This all-black look may have worked in the evening but it certainly doesn't fly on a sunny day in LA.
If I was Kate, I would have firstly ditched the knit beanie. Unless you're in snow, rain, or San Francisco, you don't need it. Next, I would have left behind the black tights. She has nice gams and should show them off. I would have also switched the suede boots for a pair of colored flats.
How would YOU wear it?
Last month ShopStyle joined the Sugar family and for that we are grateful. Now, InStyle wants in on the action, too. The magazine has set up shop at Shopstyle. Now readers can get fabulous, editor-recommended dresses and even more party frocks right at their fingertips. This fusion means that now when you see an item you adore in a magazine, you don't have to go searching far and wide to get it. Shopping made easier? That's just what we need!
The late and great Isabella Blow taught us, via her over-the-top outfits and words, to be bold; to never blend in with the crowd. This Cocktail Pillbox Hat, $28, strikes me as something Issy would have encouraged us to wear. Though it's a definite statement piece, it's beautiful and feminine. I'd attempt it at a super fashion-y soiree. Would you?

issarocks is the model mod girl in this cute frilly white tunic dress partnered with black tights. I love the contrast: feminine and severe, black and white...it makes for an interesting harmony. Convenient, since she wore this outfit to go see a musical!
Here's what she's wearing:
- Dress: Forever 21
- Tights: Target
- Shoes: Target
Congrats to issarocks!

The power suit is back: but with a new power. It's now machine-washable and with a flattering cut. For all you young professionals out there whose suits are like a uniform, take a breath of fresh air. No more hauling piles of blazers, pants, and skirts back and forth to the dry cleaners on a weekly basis!
Nicole by Nicole Miller has an affordable "Smart Suit" at JCPenney: $132 for jackets, $72 for pants, and $60 for skirts. Erin Fetherston for Target has the more feminine washable skirt suit at left coming out in mid-November, and Kohl's Apt. 9 label offers a washable tweed pantsuit. Some are also wrinkle-resistant, so you can just wash and wear.
