In celebration of the warming weather and clear skies, aurora239 put together a folksy yet funky ensemble. I adore her easy breezy outfit.

Woven fabrics, often made out of nylon, that use a special reinforcing technique that make them very resistant against tearing and ripping. During weaving, reinforcement threads are interwoven at regular intervals in a crosshatch pattern in the fabric. The main advantage of ripstop fabrics is that smaller tears and rips can't easily spread further in the fabric.
These Free People Ripstop Shorts ($98) are made using the ripstop technique and thus are highly durable.

Kelly Osbourne celebrated Elton John's birthday in Hollywood over the weekend. She stayed true to her rocker side by wearing a leather motorcycle jacket but added a dash of glam via a body-hugging green animal-print dress. I've noticed Kelly loves to accessorize — she did so with a white beaded necklace, black rimmed glasses, stacked bangles, and a kitchy bag. She made it work with just enough funk and the right amount of sexy.
