A Fab reader, who is off to a Vegas wedding soon, is at a fashion roadblock. She's looking for a dress that will work for the wedding as well as a club. One stipulation: The dress and shoes must match her rose gold jewelry. Were you up for the challenge?
I started you off with this J.Crew Sequin Scarf ($140) because it's flashy, just like Sin City's lights.

I've been pining for Anna Sheffield's jewels for a while, so it's high time I let you in on the gossip. Sheffield, who's also the designer behind funky jewelry line Bing Bang, is a genius when it comes to edgy yet feminine adornments.
Anna's design aesthetic for her namesake collection is simple and sleek. She uses silver, gold, gems, and diamonds to create stunning, handmade masterpieces retailing between $350 to $1,500. Too expensive? Check out her exclusive Bee 23 collection for Urban Outfitters.

Supple, soft, textural — I can't resist. Yes, simply irresistible suede is high maintenance — so it's best to wear it now, before rain drops — but it's worth it. In case of a downpour, make sure to weatherproof your puppies and wear rain boots to and from your destination. I mean, you wouldn't want to tarnish these Jimmy Choo Glint suede boots ($995), would you? Hell no.
Attention denim junkies. Diesel's highly anticipated Dirty Thirty jeans are set to hit stores tomorrow at 10 a.m. — sharp. The commemorative $50 jeans, which honor the brand's 30th anniversary, have caused a frenzy with fans who are used to paying more than $100 for the pricey line. Out of the 30,000 pairs made, 8,000 will be available in the US.
The limited-edition jeans, seen left on Daisy Lowe, feature a "dirty wash," a back patch with a "xXx" logo, and special buttons reading "Diesel 1978." According to sources, store managers have even been approached with bribery to reserve the jeans. Are you ready for the madness?
While she explores her crush on her contractor, I'm crushing on the adorable Victory Ford of Lipstick Jungle. Admittedly, my interview with her during Fashion Week, in the Saks shoe department, has something to do with it, but her character on the show is flirty and fashionable. Last night she flew around town in a sassy Zac Posen knit dress, an ethnic headband, and big gold hoops — I love this look. After all, she is the fashion designer, so she's the most experimental. But there's more where that came from; there are Lipstick Jungle looks aplenty on CelebStyle.com.
