>> Julie Gilhart, who exited her long-held Barneys fashion director role last November, is joining Amazon.com as consultant to the company's fashion group, which includes Amazon Clothing Store, Endless and MyHabit. She is expected — in a role similar to her responsibilities at Barneys — to help shape the group's fashion point of view and the assortment of designer brands. “Her ability to identify fashion trends, support emerging designers and work with established brands will help us provide excitement and new talent for Amazon’s growing fashion businesses,” said Maria Renz, CEO of MyHabit and Endless, and VP of shoes and jewelry at Amazon.

A flash of skin in small doses is never a bad thing — and this season's wispy, ultra-feminine sheer maxi skirt is a surefire way to work the see-through trend without being, well, scandalous. This Rag & Bone pleated silk maxi skirt ($450) is a seemingly tricky investment piece but one that, when carefully styled, can deliver endless options through every season. For those of you ready to show some skin this Spring, here are five ways to wear the barely there sheer maxi skirt.
Ashlee Simpson's Winter styling doesn't mean sacrificing fresh print or color. She mixes up the best of her cold-weather wardrobe with a pretty floral blouse and a lacy little skirt ($12). Blue oxfords ($56, originally $78) lend another pop of color, while black tights and a navy coat keep things seasonal. Click the items above to shop a similar look.

Here's something I've never heard of: Endless.com is offering negative $5 overnight shipping. What does that mean exactly? They credit you $5 when you submit an order to ship overnight. Get out! That's what I said . . .Comments
Amazon is making its way into one of our favorite territories: shoes and handbags! Welcome Amazon! They just launched Endless.com, a separate online shop that sells women's shoes and handbags as well as men's and kids' shoes. And the best part? They offer free overnight shipping and free returns. Yeah, I couldn't believe it either but it appears to be true: you just have to order before 7:30PM EST. I'm really curious about this promise and am tempted to buy something just to test it!
The site is very easy to navigate, with a sub-menu on the left that helps you narrow your search. You can narrow your search by color, brand, size, category, price and width - they have everything covered. The designers are a bit limited - no super hot designers - but there are more affordable ones, and they are adding more. For shoes, I noticed Delman, BCBG, Kenneth Cole, Jessica Simpson, Oh Deer! and Tyler by Richard Tyler. While they don't carry high-end designers, this is a great destination to buy basics. You can also select specific designers and search them all as a group. I know I'm going to peruse this site this weekend; come back and tell me what you all think! Here are my picks:
Tyler by Richard Tyler Women's Rumba Open Toe Patent Pump, on sale for $59.89 (originally $124.95).
Hype Florian Medium Hobo, $175.
