I was searching for Fab belts when I came across this Wolfwhistle Leather Braced Filigree Belt ($358). Why would anyone pay that much to look like they're wearing a body support brace? This style is best left for Renaissance Fair-goers, don't you think?
I have always been drawn to the weave. I think it's my lifelong adoration for Bottega Veneta (see amazing Spring wedge at left) and its luxurious woven leathers. Because Bottega has been around for so long, many copy cats have chimed in on the earthy motif. On shoes, this style is ideal — it's interesting, cool and slightly '70s — right up my alley.
Here's what she has on:
- Jacket: Vintage from Ebay
- Dress: from Korea
- Shoes: Asos
Congrats to shini!

Eva Mendes was out and about looking lemony fresh in her dotted Juicy Couture minidress. I love how she looks just as pulled together in an easy going minidress as she does in jeans and a tailored jacket. She went the extremely casual route with some leather flip flops but strappier flat sandals add that extra oomph for all you Fabionistas.
The Hills season three premiere left us (no surprise), wanting more. Lauren, Audrina, and Whitney were dressed to the nines at the premiere party at Gotham Hall in NYC. We can't seem to get enough of these ladies with their fabulous fits and much anticipated drama. Make sure you take my fashion quiz to see if you're just as much a fan as we are!
What I love about attending New York and LA Fashion Week is that I get to see my favorite (and not so favorite) clothes in action. Most of the time, looking at a photo does not do an outfit justice. Saks Fifth Avenue has come up with a brilliant solution: a series of video catalogs. Currently there are 17 looks but my favorite is the '70s-inspired look number six. It's simple: want, watch, buy.
The newest crop of Gap Design Editions are going to be in stores before we know it: April 15 is only a few weeks away! For this round, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Band of Outsiders, Michael Bastian, and Threeasfour all riffed on the classic white button-down ($78-$88), and Philip Crangi whipped up black and white resin cuffs ($45). I still wear the Rodarte Design Edition top I picked up last year; it's definitely not your typical white shirt. But I have to ask: Should the GAP be enlisting these designers to take on a different wardrobe staple? I would have loved to see what this group could do with a more affordable LBD. Nonetheless, for those who missed the Design Editions the first time around, get ready to pounce!
