Z-Spoke Has Arrived!!!!!!

Looking forward to Spring and all that is holds in store! From beautiful, blossoming florals to warmer weather to all new fashion trends! What's on the fashion addendum for Spring 2010? Recessionista, high end meets low designer essentials. Zac Posen is first up for Spring! Posen's low end, line exclusive for Saks, Z-Spoke, hits stores this Spring with a fabulous 60-piece line of knits, khakis, dresses and more! And better still...The price point...Starting at $78! That's news to my ears!!! I'm more than excited to see what the famed designer does for girls on a budget!! He definitely aims to please, just look at the fabulous creation, that folks are still referencing, that he designed for Ms. Rihanna! I still think this was the most fab dress on the red carpet at the Grammy's last year! He rocked it and is sure to rock it on the Low as well!!!!!!!!

Ride Out!!!!!!!!!!!

With Winter approaching and wardrobe needing another shift, try on a new trend! What's hot? Knee Patch Leggings! This spin on the riding pant, incorporates the comfort of basic leggings and the chicness of an almost leather pant! All of us may not be capable of pulling off a pair of skin tight leather stretch pants(which are also hot, right now), but the Knee Patch allows you to take baby steps and look hot while doing so! Pair your Knee Patch leg with a simple blazer or over sized tee. Or try it with the ever so popular jersey dress and a pair of booties and you're in business! Still aren't convinced? Try a more subtle approach; the Knee Patch tight. Same take on the trend, but a wee bit more safe(and they look great under a silky, short dress or skirt). You've got options! Go ahead and take a ride! Your legs will thank ya!

Live Long and Dress Well!!!!!!!!!

Zippity Do Dah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Zippers aren't just for jackets these days! They can be found on just about anything from leggings to dresses and most definitely the winter staple...The Leather Jacket!!!! I'm loving the asymmetrical twist on this usually, hidden fastner! Zippers can add an edgy look to an otherwise simple one! Check out the looks featured at intermixonline Lust List! This exposed zipper got its start last fall(see ExpoZip). Zippers on the outside of clothing was all the rage and continues to be quite the trend, with new twists and turns! Im loving the lookse featured at Shopbop and Anthropologie!

Don't be left in the cold on this one ladies...Zip it up!!!!

Style Inspiration!!!!!!!!!

For this month's style inspiration, I'm channeling men's wear! I have been eyeing lots of skinny jeans with blazers and oversized sweaters, so I'm thinking of some cool, comfy, chic ways to put these pieces together without looking to over done! Here's what I came up with...Try pairing JBrands Antique Twill(so comfy and soft) with an oversized cardigan(both featured here can be found at Anthro and JCrew and on Sale), with a pair of patent oxfords by Madewell! This look screams men's wear, but with a hint of femininity! I always love pairing generous tops with well fitting bottoms. It's a most flattering look for almost any figure! It's getting chilly out there, and if you're like me, not quite ready to throw on a winter coat, try an oversized sweater!
My fav by Theory

It's On and Pop-Up!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, given the state of our current economic affairs, the retail industry has done some revamping and restructuring! Case and point, I was in recently in the Gap and it was quickly brought to my attention that some items I had purchased were marked, "final sale." Ok. But the sales associate was very clear in letting me know that the black and white tags meant final sale and could not be returned! Whoa! Not a problem, I thought to myself, but clearly the company had to do some rethinking on how to regain financial loss! With that said, I was recently introduced (thanks Jiggy-A) to the Pop-Up Shop! What the heck? Well, fashion designers and retailers have thought of a clever way to make a buck, sell merchandise, and do it fast...The answer...Pop-Up Shops! Forbes magazine featured the concept in their February 08 issue. The concept? Well known designers(Rachel Pally, Earnest Sewn) and retailers wanted to create a cool, small space to showcase items for a limited time. Prices are usually the same and items are current. The catch is the smaller version store will only be around for 1-2 months! So, one must act fast. Pop-Up shops have taken off and become very popular in L.A. and NYC and one recently came to live here in DC! Redeem boutique, located on the oh so happening 14th street corridor recently hosted a Pop-up launch for De*nada knit wear(very cute, hand-crafted knit scarves and gloves) and will be housing the indy label for the next two months and it's defiknitly worth checking out!

Now you see it, now you don't! Act fast or miss out!!!
