Rag and Bone Pre-Fall - 2010

By: Vera Gushansky
Rag and Bone pre-fall 2010 is nothing short of chic. From the soft lineage seams and the skin tight jeans, the designer definitely had a vision of class. I love how all the tunics flow past the waist line of the pants because it helps hide the extra holiday weight we all put on ;). The belts fitted around the waist help create a slim form, keeping with the form fitting style of all the bottoms. Even the short, egg-shell white, flowy skirt is placed atop of suffocating white denims. Fall lines never call for bright colors so many past seasons based their pallet on autumn colors such as green, orange, and brown. Rag and Bone switched it up this time around and based the garments on white, black and grey, along with navy blue to bounce off the grey.

ShopBop's Top Shoes

By: Vera Gushansky
ShopBop has some fab clothes this season. I was so entertained as I was browsing through all the categories that I chose to stay in one night and look at clothes instead of going to a club. Pretty pathetic, but very true. For your convenience, I picked some shoes that I consider to be the season's most fabulous from ShopBop. They are a little pricey, so save up. Totally worth it! Wouldn't you much rather shop for cute clothes than make rent this month? Yeah me too ;).

Peacocking for Attention

By: Vera Gushansky
This season, buy your very own attracting mechanism: a peacock accessory! Your new peacock feather inspired item will be sure to turn some heads, in a good way. Whether it be a headband, or an item of clothing, this trend has no boundaries. I've even got peacock feather tatted behind my ear!

Had this feather tatted in May 09 at Through Your Skin on Melrose Ave
★Tip: Make sure not to clash this peacock trend with another trend. For example: Wear a peacock headband with leopard leggings.★

Boos and Besito

By: Jade Jorda
It is my great pleasure to announce the grand opening of a store that I long waited for. These girls made my favorite bow that I absolutely love to wear all the time (no, seriously, ask my friends). Here's how I wore it last:

Made out of black leather with a gold chain, it becomes a necklace, genius!

Boos and Besito are now opening their store, Virgo, in Downtown LA and I took a quick look this past Friday and man oh man I wished my wallet wasn't so empty. Well actually even though it was I tried on boots but they weren't my size :( phew! I got real close to over-drafting because of them. They have the most original boots, shirts, belts, skirts, jewelery (like that bow I have they made a jeans studded one, gorg!) you name it. They have men's stuff too if you want to find cool Christmas presents for the boys in your life. Definitely an event you'll want to attend if you want to be the first to know about that soon-to-be-super-popular store. And come on... wine and champagne?!... I'll see you there!! ;-)
