Zac Posen in NYC

Zac Posen is posing and looking GREAT! Enough SAID!!

Soccer Apparel has never looked so HOT!!!

Soccer apparel is a fashion that I notice most during the spring and summer seasons. I have been known to purchase the Mexico-zip up jackets or Brazil warm ups, everyone loves the red, green and yellow color combinations, but this year I may lean more toward soccers most sought after wonder-hunk David Beckham and his LA Galaxy team apparel. The Becks recently held a press conference in Korea with another "obviously" handsome soccer player by the name of Lee Eul-Yong who plays for Seoul FC. These two exchanged jerseys for the picture below and looked great doing it. I have included a link of where David Beckham's Adidas branded white with blue and gold accents "home" jersey can be purchased for a price of $67.50.

Miss Davenporte's current take on a trapeze dress!

OMG, thank goodness for Miss Davenporte who answered my fashion prayers with design of this dress. As women, we all know how comforting it "was" to be able to wear baby doll, bubble and trapeze style silhouettes and still be considered fashionable. I mean, honestly, no we all don't have perfect bodies, so I was very appreciative for having that trend. But now, I am so over that style in its literal sense. I mean, there are many opportunities and apparel lines out there that have more of it to come for Spring 2008, but for me, I'm looking for an equally as comfortable, chic, understated look, that I can add my personal flair to and be-FABULOUS! Miss Davenporte has done just that. The dress is 100% silk, with black and white polka dotted print. Although it is long sleeve, the material is very lightweight therefore giving the cool factor for a mid-ranged temperature day. My favorite part about the dress is the shape. I mean, it's not trapeze and it's not baby doll, so when a belt is added to cinch the waist it will offer a fun, flavorful, style to the dress. The price is $600 and it is available on Ronherman.com. The belt is from bluefly.com and it is black, patent leather with studs and costs $29.00. I think wearing this belt with the dress will dress it down just a tad, for a modern edge.

Add a punch to your work wardrobe with French Connection!

French Connection is an apparel company based out of the UK that has sophisticated and modern clothing with a vibe and expression in classic silhouettes. I am very partial to apparel brands with such edge that can easily go from day to night; business meeting to business networking event; etc. I believe that a lot of women need that kind of versatility in their wardrobe and French Connection can offer it to you. I have selected two pieces from their current online inventory that I think can add punch to your wardrobe for work and show that you have style and class when worn to social gatherings. First, is a classic trench coat. This coat is offered in white which is a popular color for the 2008 spring season. It's length is mid-thigh, but it is also light weight as it is made of 100% cotton. The cut is very feminine and it costs $298.00. The next piece is a polka-dot designed gold with black dots, polyester and viscose skirt. The skirt is high waisted with a bow on the waist and has about a 2" hem along the bottom, giving it that classic, business savvy feeling. Price is $129.99 on Sale and it is adorable.

WOWed by Warehouse.co.uk! But how do you get it?

There is a UK online retailer that I just LOOOVE and it is named Warehouse. But there is just one small problem, they do not SHIP to the US. No, really, I'm serious. Like when H&M was only in Europe and topshop was merely a store that we heard the celebrities shopped at. Well, last night I met two wonderful, young ladies from the UK and we discussed (of all things) fashion and they told me, (in a British accent) "we love Warehouse, but we just have our mums ship it to us." And I thought, hmmm, well I was thinking of doing that same thing by route of Tokyo, since I have a friend there (but does Warehouse even ship to Japan)? Then, I thought, oh now, I know, I can just ask their mum to do that for me too :-D Just kidding. But take a look at the fashions from this beloved site, that have price points of 30 - 90 British pounds and maybe you will see, why I am on a hunt to get it in the US. Also, check them out yourself online Warehouse.
