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!

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!!!

Gotta Getaway!!!!!!!!!!!

In need of a Spring break in the Fall? I have just the place for you...Try Anguilla, better still, try the Viceroy Anguilla! Anguilla is a small island in the British West Indies. It has just what you need: white sand, beaches with turquoise waters, friendly people, and relaxation! Not a lot of hustle and bustle. If you need a little of that, hop on over to St. Martin or St. Bart's for the day! You can catch a chartered flight for less than $100 bucks! If you make Anguilla your destination, be sure and book yourself a room or if your pockets allow, a villa, at the Viceroy! This resort is part of the fabulous Viceroy Hotel Group. It's luxury to the max! The Viceroy Anguilla offers amazing oceanfront villas and will also offer a host of luxury apartments and hotel rooms starting December 1st! So, don't wait, treat yourself to a little luxury! Ask for Travis, for all of your concierge needs! He is sure to hook you up once you get there! A fabulous, island getaway awaits you!!!!
