These Branches File Folders, $9 for eight folders, make me want to throw out my boring manila folders at once! I know that any old folder can get the job done, but why settle for blah when you can have beautiful? I don't know about you, but the pretty pastel designs would definitely motivate me to open my folders more often. Wow, who knew style could encourage productivity?!

You never really can get enough good basics. Wendy Mullin has capitalized on this fact, and I'm glad that she does - she specializes in great basics in unique, modern shapes.
She started her NYC-based line of clothing and accessories in 1991, initially opening little boutiques in the back of record stores where she worked. After she gained some attention for her popular guitar straps, Wendy opened her first retail store in Little Italy, followed by stores in Brooklyn and L.A. Lucky for us, all her wares are now online, and she's even currently having a sale of up to 40% off her Spring line - from bags to canvas shoes to jumpers, tees, jackets, dresses, shorts, and jeans.
The future is upon us. Fabric innovations have brought fresh and interesting textures to the runways. Upon the streamlined shapes of Fall, these complex and high-tech fabrics, like heat-fused wool-and-silk blends, glazed mohair knits, full on plumage, and glossy treatments, outshined some of the silhouettes (and the models!). Here at Giles, get lost in the new textures - ladies, it's time to texturize it.

There's nothing fancy about it and that is why I gravitate towards AG Adriano Goldschmied's current ad campaign. Unlike so many colorful, controversial and over-the-top ads out there, this one is understated and ultra cool. Angela Lindvall looks hip in her high-waisted itty bitty jean shorts and black and white striped tank. And her leading lad's dangerous looks appeal to my weakness for bad boys. The pad they're frolicking in is not too shabby either - very Hollywood Hills. What do you all think of this ad?
Join me in wishing Lindsay a happy 21st birthday today! The actress looks fresh in her nautical getup while leaving rehab to do some shopping. I love how she has the ability to throw on the preppiest of striped sweaters yet still look cool. And the gold Chanel bag completes the cute look with a bang!
Kate has been the face of Agent Provocateur for almost a year now, and posed for multiple picture campaigns and four promotional videos, but her contract will not be renewed when it expires in August, AP co-owner Serena Rees has confirmed. Personal issues reportedly soured the relationship, as Rees is said to have had an affair with The Clash bassist Paul Simonon - the husband of one of Moss' close friends.
Kate's replacement has already been chosen, but all Rees will reveal about her is that "She's quite different. She's not sexy in an overt way." Meanwhile, speculation is growing that Gavin Rossdale's daughter Daisy Lowe is the unnamed replacement...
When I was little my dad used to take me out to the driving range, and I loved it - setting up the tee, putting my neon pink ball on the tee, and attempting to connect my club with the ball (easier said than done when you're six). I thought for old times' sake I would take my dad out for a round on the ol' golf course. Help me pick out an outfit so I can look Fab, even when I look like a goofball (golfball?) while I swing and miss!
I'll start you off with this adorable Juicy Couture Terry Visor, $18 (originally $45), to shield my face from the glaring, but beautiful, sun.
Oh! Now, you can build outfits by creating a list of clothing items. We have everything you need to build outfits with and you can use your Fab Find bookmarks too. This is an even better way to put together an entire outfit when you are completing your Fab Finding missions.

scissorz is party-ready! I love the combination of the pattern of her dress, the yellow shock of her bag, and her blonde pixie cut, which all together give her a great ingenue look. Very Agyness Deyn!
Here's what she's wearing:

- Shoes: Kenneth Cole
- Bag: Goldenbleu
- Sunglasses: Missoni
Congrats to scissorz!

A dash of red or a shot of fuchsia is the perfect way to heat up those sultry summer days (or nights)! I mean, who doesn't need to unleash a little siren in them every once and a while - and sporting a hot shade of red is a surefire way to express it. This week, your Fab Finds are a wave of crimson; perfect timing, considering that you'll have your red covered for the Fourth of July in two days.
The Fab Finder of the week is daiane, who found this hot little dress - I love the shape! Every week the Fab Finder I announce Monday morning will receive either a TeamSugar or FabSugar baby tee shirt.

Sarah Michelle Gellar showed up at the launch of Harrods' Summer sale in London portraying two swiftly different looks. In her Marni asymmetrical off-white coat she looks sharp and timeless. Underneath it, her satin taupe jumpsuit oozes youthfulness and trendiness. I am always a fan of the adorable SMG, but do you love it or hate it?
