Dreams Do Come True

There are so many designers with clothing I absolutely love.  Unfortunately on a working-girl’s budget I can’t buy them all.  I see a great Bagdley Mischka dress I just have to have, then I see the latest Christian Siriano design and I want that one.  What is a girl to do.  To the rescue is Rent The Runway, a girl’s best friend.  You get the most amazing clothing and jewelry from the top designers.  For about 10% of the actual price of the clothing, Rent The Runway lets you pick the dress for your ocassion, gets it to you on time, and you simply mail it back to them afterwards.  I LOVE this place.  I have the real deal that would have cost me a month’s salary for $150 to wear to my special occassion. I simply can’t thank Rent The Runway enough for making a fashionista’s dreams come true.  Here’s a sampling of what you can find at

Matthew Williamson, Retail $2,500 Rental $250

Lela Rose, Retail $1,295 Rental $150

Yigal Azrouel, Retail $1,600 Rental $200

Kenneth Jay Lane, Retail $450 Rental $65

Vintage Engagement Rings

Whether it’s a real antique or vintage inspired, engagement rings are hopping on the ‘old school’ bandwagon.  Is it the because of the upcoming royal wedding or the desire to share items of family importance ?  Any way you look at it, it’s a beautiful trend I love.   Antique rings can cost as much as $20,000 or more, but vintage inspired will set your guy back a whole lot less.

The Not So Good Of 2010

Celebrities in 2010 had some good and unfortunately some bad fashion statements.  The good ones were really good and the bad were really bad.  Let’s take a look back at some of those, just for laughs, and unfortunately there are so many more !

Not Your Grandmother’s Pearls

Pearls are a fabulous staple to add to your wardrobe, just like the all purpose white blouse or black slacks and pencil skirt. I am sure that like many of you we remember how classy Jackie Kennedy or Audrey Hepburn looked in their pearl necklaces.  Wear them with your coolest  jeans and sweater like below for a fabulous daytime or girls night out look.  No, pearls are not just for your grandmother !
