Tanked In Embellishment!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now, don't go digging for your bedazzling kit just yet. This is one haute look that you may want to leave to the professionals! Embellished Tanks seem to be sticking around for fall 09! Featured in the August issue of InStyle and were they looking on so haute! My favorite comes from the Haute Hippie collection. This designer has turned an otherwise simple tank, into a dazzling, yet demure, perfect with a black pencil skirt, treat! And get this, the shiny bauble of a necklace detaches!!! Genius! So, you get two looks in one!!! Gotta love that!!!! Embellished tanks can be found just about any where this summer season (Cusp, JCrew, Bergdorf Goodman, etc.). Just be careful, this look can easily be taken over the top and leave you looking tanked!!!!!!!! Keep it jazzy on top and simple on the bottom and accessories to a bare minimum and you will be set!!!

Live Long and Tank Well!!!!!!!!!!!

Our collection gives a nod of respect and appreciation to the diversity of cultures in our world, while extending a social, economic, and environmental handshake.

Jersey's Finest!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Summer has officially arrived and travel is definitely on the agenda!!! least favorite thing to do. Although, I am very methodical about the whole packing process. For the last few years I have been implementing a "packing list." For me, a packing list helps me plan out my outfits while on vacay and keeps me from the dreaded OVERPACKING!!!! It also saves me room for bringing back Fabulous Finds! With that said...A must pack for me is the ever flattering, easy to wear, easy to pack(can be rolled, balled, stuffed) Jersey Dress!!! Yes ladies, the Jersey dress is back in full effect for this summer season and oh so many fun, flirty looks to choose from. Go from beach casual to evening chic, all in one dress! Just a change of shoes and accessories and you have yourself a 2 in 1!!!! How's that for easy dressing? At the top of my list in Jersey dresses are Velvet by Graham Spencer, Rachel Pally, and T-bags Each of these designers puts their own special spin on this prized garment. Check out the looks I found at Shopbop(who by the way has a lot of Jersey knits on sale as we speak).

Jersey is quite popular these days...From Housewives to Knits. You have lots of options and one is sure to fit you Fine!!!

My Fav by Velvet
