Rachel Zoe Fashion Advice on Being Chic, Easily

Saturday, September 18th, 2010

rachel zoe fashion tips

Rachel Zoe recently said on an episode of The Rachel Zoe Project, “Nothing looks more chic than when when you wear black with a pop of bright color.” I think that is the exact quote.She said this while at the 2010 Gucci fashion show in Milan, I believe.

Rachel Zoe takes her own fashion advice. She's all in black with a hot pink clutch!

Anyway, what do you think? Will you try the style out? All black and then one bright, committed color for one item? It could be your earrings, skirt, top, tights, or bag. Or even a colorful wig, I suppose! It really is a chic look.

Nina Dobrev Style Guide: Front Zipper Skirt

Thursday, September 16th, 2010

nina dobrev style guide

Nina Dobrev of The Vampire Diaries was recently interviewed (and did a photoshoot) for Saturday Night Magazine. In the above photo, Nina is wearing a front zipper skirt in black from Charlotte Ronson. I found a ton of zippered skirts – all similar. Some are steals for only $20, other are major splurges. I just wanted to show them all off to you guys. I think a front zipper skirt is a majorly fun item to wear this fall. (But I also think that making s’mores in the microwave is fun.)

Make sure to check out our first Nina Dobrev post: How to Dress Like Nina Dobrev in The Vampire Diaries

For photoshoots, there’s always a ton of clothing to pick from. A stylist will help, but usually a celebrity has say in what they end up wearing. So it stands to reason that Miss Nina Dobrev really did like this front zipper skirt – and why not? It’ ... Read More

Katherine Pierce Dresses on The Vampire Diaries

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

katherine pierce costumes

In 1864, Katherine Pierce was a Southern Belle.With her costumes, you can see she is wearing crinoline’s. A crinoline is also called a hoop skirt – I betcha know what those are! They were very popular in the 1800’s. They were like cages…and they would sway. It was all about having full skirts. Extra flounces (ruffles!) on skirts were added to make them appear even fuller. The idea was to have your skirt look like a doom or a teapot. Waists were very tiny and defined.

Hair in the 1860’s included lots of curled ringlets. Hats were smaller now, as women carried parasol’s. But they still wore decorative hats with flowers, feathers and ribbons – worn at the crown of the head. As you see, Katherine wore a small hat perched near the front of her face, over what was an expansive hairstyle – as was the trend of this era.

If you’re looking to dress like Katherine Pierce for Halloween, I suggest not buying one of the Southern Belle costumes that are around. There seem to be about only 7 standard dresses on every costume site. They’re all (with the exception of one, which I linked below) kind of gaudy with bright colors. They seem…cheesy, you know? And Katherine was elegant. And so are you, dammit! So, my suggestion is to hit up a rental place (again ... Read More

Covert Affairs Clothes: Zipper Leggings on Annie Walker

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I love this Covert Affairs poster of Piper Perabo as Annie Walker. In it, she sports really kicky zipper leggings. They’ve actually become quite popular. Put some Covert Affairs fashion into you wardrobe with a pair, okay? Yes, do it! Don’t be afraid! It’ll let you show off a really great pair of shoes. And we all know that Annie’s Covert Affairs shoes are very wonderful.

Covert Affairs Clothes and Shoes: Annie Walker’s Dress

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

Covert Affairs Clothes

So, about a million people have e-mailed us asking about a particular blue and white bandanna dress (i.e. covert affairs blue/white shirtdress or covert affairs black/white print dress) that Piper Perabo wears as Annie Walker on Covert Affairs. As stated on our style request form (and what is apparent if you read us!) we don’t look up and find exact designer matches. The episode that you just saw of Covert Affairs was probably shot at least four months ago – meaning the same designs are not often in stores anymore. And that isn’t even taking into account the fact that the items on TV shows are always much more expensive than what your average gal can spend. (Not always. But very often.)

Because there were so many requests, I decided I had to do SOMETHING, and found some similar dresses.I hope you appreciate my hard work! I have really sore thumbs because I did the unthinkable tonight and made mussels – meani ... Read More

Covert Affairs Clothes: Annie’s Cute Sporty Outfit in Fool in the Rain

Tuesday, September 14th, 2010

annie walker covert affairs

The fact that I don’t really buy/wear tons of sporty gear is probably one of the reasons I couldn’t really fill this Covert Affairs fashion request as well as I’d like. Of course, I spent a LONG time looking through my resources, and trying different keywords to find if not THE exact track jacket on Annie in “Fool in the Rain” – something similar that I liked. Maybe I just don’t like track jackets? At any rate, blergh!

This request came to us from Lindsay, 25. She knew the pants were Adidas, but noted that the, “cute jacket had no logo!” And that’s a problem! What she liked about this jacket was that it was “trendy, and not basic.”

Covert Affairs clothes for Ms. Annie Walker in this episode were really fun since it was a vacation episode. High-fives for everyone who’s a fan of Annie’s clothing. Or Danielle’s – she wears great stuff, too.

Well, Lindsay. I did my best with similar items. ….And THEN I thought about why you liked the outfit. And that’s because it was a step-up from the predictable stuff you see everywhere. And so that inspired me to go further in my search to find cute sporty outfits. To me, it’s  just about selecting cute separate ... Read More

Modern Spin: How to Dress Like Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ

how to dress like dorothy

Here’s our post about How to dress like Dorothy, and it’s full of twists on the tradition that you expect. I was lucky to come across a dress (which inspired this entire piece – which otherwise wasn’t going to happen because I was so intent on first covering Alice in Wonderland after finally watching the recent Tim Burton movie) named after Dorothy herself. It has the perfect blue gingham pattern, but it doesn’t look dowdy.

For the shoes, I didn’t pick sparkly ones. Gasp! I instead picked a pair that was a little more flexible on theme, and wouldn’t make you look like OH HI, I AM WEARING A COSTUME TODAY. So they have just a bit of a heel, and are red maryjanes. I love them! Dorothy carries around a picnic basket, but how stylish is THAT? For the bag I picked a woven, tan-colored piece. And then there are two necklace options which feature either Toto or a bicycle (remember the beginning of the movie?)

Another suggestion to incorporate is bypassing the movieR ... Read More

"Add a fun touch to your look with '90s-inspired slogan bracelets."

Sup, dudes? Has your day been all that and a bag of chips? A slammin’ day? As if! Now don’t you dare bounce, I know you don’t have to dip just yet. You might find these words odd, so you’re buggin’ and think I’m all bunk, but don’t go postal. Aren’t you down with  this? My bad, I didn’t explain! Concept!

I’m speaking with 90’s slang! You know…

  • Oh snap!
  • Whatever
  • Off the heasy
  • Dope
  • Duh
  • Trippin
  • Tight
  • Wicked
  • Not! (or Psych!)
  • Fugly
  • Yo
  • Da bomb
  • Mega
  • Peace
  • Wig Out

To hear most of these 90’s slang words used, we only need to go to one source, the iconic fashion and teenage sensation movie CLUELESS! Alicia Silverstone with the enviable wardrobe, Paul Rudd before anyone liked him, and the adorable Brittany Murphy as a ... Read More

Nikita Fashion a la Maggie Q

Wednesday, September 8th, 2010

Pilot

For those who fall for the clothing in The CW’s new TV show – there might be a tiny bit of a problem. There’s already a a clothing brand called Nikita. But we’re talking about the CW TV show with Maggie Q.

Nikita’s clothing is mostly comprised of everything black. She also wears silver or shades of gray. Her clothing style is a mix of sexy clothing with casual, sporty gear that lets her move around. To dress like Nikita, merge both ideas. Even her sporty clothing is kind of sexy because it’s body conscious. I’ve included a great pair of black yoga pants, for that reason. I’ve also copied Nikita fashion by using off the shoulder tops, black dresses, and lace-up black boots.

Steal some Nikita fashion with these elements:
