Just because Gossip Girl Blake Lively has hit instant fame doesn't mean she can't still shop on a budget. She can and she did recently with this Alpinestars Chambray Shirtdress ($68) she wore on her way to The Late Show With David Letterman. The bodacious blonde is really into casual shirtdresses, but considering the weather is warm and her body is hot, I can't blame her. I like how she rolled up the sleeves and went unbuttoned for an effortless feel. The dress could use some ironing, but since it's a casual style, it works.

Bag fiends, listen up. Luna Boston's sale section is stuffed with purses, from metallics to patents, evening bags to oversize styles.
Take a lookie at this Rafe Coco Large Tote ($275, originally $550). What appeals to me are the subtle floral perforations. Styles from Lauren Merkin, Foley + Corinna, Badgley Mischka Platinum, and Cynthia Rowley are also up for grabs, so start grabbing.
Gucci's latest folksy collection is destined to be a huge inspiration for Fall ensembles. In the meantime, get the Summer version of the trend with this Ethnic Cotton Tent Dress, one size fits all. With lots of gold and ethnic accessories, you'll be set. Come next season, throw on a pair of fringed, studded suede boots and a coin belt to mimic Gucci's runway.
The current bidding price is at $18.50, and the auction ends on Tuesday, Sept. 2. Good luck and happy bidding!
It was love at first sight when I saw this white sheath dress with fur back in Giambattista Valli's Fall show. I thought model Tanya D. lent much-needed delicateness to it. Seeing it now on Victoria Beckham, I can't say that I love it as much. There's no doubt the dress is still stunning and visionary, but I think Posh's features are too blunt for such a dainty dress. And her stiff posing doesn't help. What do you say? Do you love or hate Victoria in Valli?
