Lately, we've been downsizing — our earrings, that is. A cool pair of studs is all we want, and we don't need to worry about taking them out or changing them. Check out our editor picks for the best studs — some sweet, some tough, some quirky, all irresistible.
Oscar de la Renta embraced new technologies in his recent resort runway show, live-streaming the collection online and sending a handful of models out with iPads in neat leather covers tucked under their arms. The iPad clutches seen on Oscar's runway are available now and sold exclusively on the Oscar de la Renta website. We've also found chic iPad carrier alternatives in the budget-friendly category, namely a natural cork cover and Moleskine-style case, which are $27 and $50 respectively. For those of you still lugging around laptops, Marc by Marc Jacobs and Valextra make our favorite fashionable computer cases.
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.
