As much as we hate the word 'bubble' in our fashion lexicon, we do love this Marc by Marc dress. In fact, we've kind of been on a frock kick these past few weeks because its an investment that works now and will last through the fall. This neon (ahem) bubble dress is a perfect example. This cotton blend dress with 3/4 length sleeves is perfect with bare legs and flats (we hear a fashion week outfit calling) and will work with black opaque tights and black booties come fall. On that note, we're particularly obsessed with that combination for fall. Brights and whites on your frock and an all-black look from thighs downward is a sharp trend for Fall 08 and one that is easy enough to manifest a million times over. Below, that neon number from two different e-commerce sites (take your pick) and a few other Marc by Marc frocks that follow the same set of rules. This is a look that's not hard to wrap your mind around and, let's face it, some mornings that kind of simplicity is appreciated. To see these frocks on the Fall 08 runway, click here.
Fellow reader Lilv wants to know: What do you think about this Vera Wang Striped Bubble Dress ($258) that she posted in the Love It or Hate It? group. I don't mind the silhouette, but combined with the stripes, it looks too much like a conservative nurse's uniform. Are you with me?
When getting ready for a fabulous soiree, you have important questions running through your mind like "Do I look pretty"? and "Does this Nicole Miller Silk Strapless Bubble Dress ($290) make me look fat"? Static inquiries shouldn't be one of them. Whether it's in your hair or on your clothes, there's no such thing as good static. But, like any other fashion crisis, it's bound to happen to the best of us. Ladies, let's get together and stop static before it stops us from looking Fab and having fun!

Move over Nicole Richie, there's a new hot pregnant mama in town. Here at the "Late Show With David Letterman," Halle Berry looks more gorgeous than ever in her Galliano bubble lace dress, slingback sandals and hoop earrings. This isn't her first pregnant look, but I think it's her best so far. Everything about it is soft and feminine — just the way Fab likes it. I'm looking forward to seeing more pretty pregnant ensembles from Halle!
