We already know Shop Robertson stocks highly coveted labels like Mike & Chris, T-bags, Dittos, Geren Ford, and Sam Edleman. But did we know they're currently having a big Summer sale? Well, I did! And I always share such knowledge. Dive in to savings on warm weather goods like tanks, dresses, sandals, and jackets. These Mike & Chris Jensen Drawstring Pants ($137, originally $196) are perfect for when I roll out of bed to walk my pooch. Stylish and sloppy, love it.

Janet just wanted a little shoulder bopping and head snapping time with her man. I totally get that. There are lots of songs about romance, but what about when your other half isn't doing much for you, lately? Attitude is one thing Janet had; she also had really big shoulder pads, but let's focus. Though I've never experienced a girls against boys dance-off in a diner, if it's going to be like this, I certainly want to. This song has a killer beat and a steadfast groove. Janet was also a master of group choreographed numbers, like this one. Please also note her gold lamé shirt, black blazer, and unmistakable smile (those chubby cheeks!).
Last night after my relaxing hair cut (I love it, thanks for asking!), my pup and I cozied up on the couch and watched the Olympics opening ceremony. Did you? I multitasked and caught up on my gossip mags while watching, but I waited to see Team USA in their Ralph Lauren designed outfits.The whopping 650 American athletes looked dapper in navy blazers emblazoned with oversized Polo ponies, off-white trousers, broadcloth shirts, white twill newsboy caps and striped silk neckwear; men wore ties and the women wore scarves. The goal was to create "something simple enough for the athletes to put together, yet stylish enough to elevate us as a country," said David Lauren, the designer's son and the company's senior vice president of advertising, marketing and corporate communications.
I thought the team looked Fab. However, I felt they all looked like men. Maybe the women could have worn flippy tennis-like skirts? These athletes have such amazing bodies, I would have liked them shown off better. And the newsboy hats, though adorable, were a bit distracting. I wanted to see the smiles and proud faces better. I guess we'll just have to wait and watch them in their body con swimwear and thigh exposing volleyball bootie shorts!
Is it me or were celebrities looking really great last week? They were! Maybe it's the end of the Summer outfit push or maybe it's stylists working overtime, but it's all eye candy for us. What started with the Teen Choice Awards ended with Fab favorite Nicole Richie out and about loving the nightlife. This one's extensive, so get ready.
