We crushed over Simply Vera by Vera Wang's Spring '10 pieces, and now we're back at it again with its fresh Fall gear. The styling continues to wow, the pieces are polished, only now it's a darker, more moody palette. Grays and blacks blend flawlessly with dim colors like plum, forest green, navy, and rust. Solids marry prints, and jeans go well with dressier tops. Click through to see 25 Fab looks, then shop away.
Simply Vera Vera Wang is still churning out noteworthy goodies. The Spring '10 collection of clothes are cute, but get a load of the unique jewels that will snazzy them up. They're currently all on sale, everything from necklaces to bracelets to earrings to rings. Here are my three favorites, all stud-muffins, all under $26.
By the looks of it, my upcoming Spring wardrobe is going to incorporate many pieces from Kohl's. LC Lauren Conrad's collection produced great hits, and so has Vera Wang's lower-priced line Simply Vera. As you can see, there are happy colors galore — coral, purple, teal, yellow — as well as muted accents like black and gray. According to Vera, this collection is all about the details: pleats, tucks, beads, sheer. Dresses, tunics, denim, jackets, and accessories are all reasonably priced. It's all available now, so get your fix.

Is your boot collection looking sad these days? Then I highly recommend adding these Simply Vera Vera Wang Moak Ankle Boots ($56, originally $80) to your stash. The crisscross detail in the front makes them stand out from all the other booties in town and the gray hue is dope. If gray suede isn't for you, they also come in black leather. Cool (and inexpensive) booties make for happy strutting.
Chloë Sevigny in cool Chloe camel. With alliteration like that, it was so meant to be. The actress attended PaleyFest09 in the Chloe scalloped shorts and blazer that Kate Bosworth and Emma Roberts have both worn. It takes a gutsy gal to wear camel head to toe and we should all take note. Here's the lesson: camel is not a traditionally sultry hue, so, like Chloe, it's wise to pair it with a foxy print. Her tiger print blouse breaks up the look and shows off her sassy side. And those toned gams take camel to a whole new level of sexy.
I saw a commercial for Simply Vera Vera Wang last night and immediately went online to see the selection up close. The Spring line has bloomed at Kohl's and I already have a long wish list. The designer usually delivers nothing short of stellar, so I'm not shocked at her latest offerings. In true Vera nature, there's lots of funky jewels and clothes conducive to heavy layering. I can see her wearing each and every one of her creations. Cropped trousers, graphic tops, sporty cool jackets, and breezy dresses dominate. One word of advice: If you want to maximize your style, mimic the looks head-to-toe.

Love. Amore. Amour. Whatever you call it, the day to express it is around the corner. Now, I don't think love should solely be celebrated once a year, but it's nice to be extra amorous on Feb. 14. Tight budgets are ruling our lives right now, but that doesn't mean we can't participate in the festivities. I present 10 Fab Valentine's Day gifts under $20. Some are pieces you can wear to attract a new lover, entice a longtime lover, or to make an old lover jealous. Others, like this Old Navy Amore T-Shirt ($15), are more practical and can be worn even after V-day. But the common denominator is that they all wholeheartedly reflect love. Or amore. Or amour.
We've been counting down our Fall essentials, and at the same time I have decided on my succinct Fall style. You know the one. The one from the Fall collections you can't stop obsessing about. For me, it's Burberry's luxed up grunge girl. For this polished but funky vibe, a sweet beanie is in order. This Simply Vera Vera Wang Bow Skull Hat ($25, originally $35) is sweet as candy, and on sale.
Supermodel Amber Valetta looked fresh and rested at a party in San Diego over the weekend. That may be thanks to her crisp white Derek Lam canvas cowl dress and glowing tan. The black skinny belt is a nice diversion from all the white, as are her black patent booties. While she kept herself rather minimal, Amber did adorn her earlobes with luxurious diamond studs.
Here's what she has on:
- Skirt: Forever 21
- Shirt: Calvin Klein
- Sandals: Simply Vera
- Tote: London Market
