I won't bore you with the details — you already know leopard print is an eye-catching way to amp up your look, and that it's especially Fab this Fall. Ashlee Simpson is the perfect example of why we love it — just a leopard print jacket thrown on over black basics and the look is instantly cooler. The jacket is a must-have piece for Fall, so why not have fun with it? It doesn't have to be loud; just pair it with another print or distressed denim to tone it down. Then you can always turn it up against an LBD, or better yet, a hot little red dress.
Neiman Marcus' sister retailer, Cusp, has a sale section definitely worth hanging out in. It's a colorful world filled with flirty dresses, bold sandals, and snazzy handbags by designers like Tibi, La Rok, and Phillip Lim.
These Blank Epidemic Shorts ($40, originally $68) are one of the most fun pieces in there. The price is right, and you don't have to worry about getting dirty in them.

Neiman Marcus-owned Cusp opened its first few boutiques last year to attract younger shoppers. In fact, my Nicole Richie interview was held at the LA boutique. With Cusp.com, girls who don't have a store near them can shop online any time. Offerings include party frocks, trendy jeans, fabulous shoes, and It bags by the likes of See by Chloe, Lauren Merkin, and more. There is also a generous sale section, so get to know Cusp if you haven't already.
Nicole Richie thinks there's nothing cuter than a little boy dressed in a suit. I know this because she told me. Well, it is pretty cute. We snuck Richie away at a recent fundraiser event to talk charity, fashion, and her evolving brand House of Harlow. This happened the night after the Chanel party, so as you can see, Fab was on a celebrity binge. I think I got my fix after an intimate chat with the funny and laid-back Richie at the Cusp Boutique in LA. Nick Verreos, Project Runway alum and friend of Nicole, was also there so stayed tuned to hear what's new with him.
Nicole partnered up with Signorelli to create T-shirts benefiting The Children's Health Fund. She proudly announced raising $400,000! She was wearing the black tank with Angel motif — stay tuned to enter to win the tank Nicole was wearing that benefits the Fund. But first, a few Fab words . . .
What brings you here?
We’re partnering up with Signorelli to raise money for the Children’s Health Fund. Just in Los Angeles, there are 500,000 children without health care and by selling the T-shirts a large amount of the proceeds are helping to fund building for mobile units. So the mobile units can go around and provide immediate health care.
Did you have any say in the design of the shirts?
I didn’t but they sent me options and I went with the black tank, I wear a lot of black.
Can we talk about your jewelry line that’s in the works?
Yes. It’s called House of Harlow and it’s actually the beginning of a brand that I’m developing of children’s apparel and also a clothing line, shoes, bags, sunglasses, everything. I’m really excited. The jewelry is first and it will be out in late August.

Neimans has been searching for a way to attract shoppers in their 20s and 30s without alienating their core clients in their 50s - and they think Cusp stores are their answer. Cusp boutiques have already been opened in L.A., D.C., and McLean, VA - one more comes to Chicago in August. The Cusp stores offer short dresses, designer jeans, T-shirts, and other casual clothes, all with lower prices than you would see on a shopping trip to Neimans.
Right now, the boutiques are marketed almost entirely online at Blog on the Cusp, which is why you probably haven't heard of them - I hadn't! Tentative plans for online shopping are currently being made, but this is exciting news, because I love Neiman's contemporary department but too often it's out of my price range!
