Rachel Zoe to Premiere Budget Fashion Line on QVC!

Aside from the fact that she wears REAL fur, I heart Rachel Zoe. I love her Vintage style, so I'm really excited that she decided to follow in the footsteps of a lot of high-end designers and do a "moderately priced" line. It will only be available on QVC, but I'm pretty sure they'll have it on their website, and not just while you watch...because really who watches those channels live?!

This is what was in Us Weekly this week (the one with Khloe Kardashian & Kendra Wilkinson on the front):

"A-List accessories just got affordable! Trendsetting stylist Rachel Zoe is launching her own moderately priced line (from $30 to $150) with QVC this fall. 'My obsession with the '60s and '70s is conveyed in all aspects of my collection,' Zoe tells Us of the bags, bling, and faux-fur outerwear. The items mimic looks she's put on clients such as Anne Hathaway and Jennifer Garner -- and herself, on her Bravo reality show (Mondays, 10P.M.). But the buyer Zoe is most hoping for? 'I would die if Michelle Obama rocked it!' she says. (Watch Zoe launch the line live on QVC September 12, 8P.M.)"

I'm loving the cocktail ring already. Ooo-La-La!

EW. That's really all I have to say. This is hideous. Too much leopard. Too much leopard velour. Too much leopard velour as a sweatshirt. Ugh.

Yay!!! Juicy Couture store opening at Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, CA in a month or so.

*Does a little dance.*

So happy :) I hate driving to the city, but love the Juicy Couture stores. They're so cute and funky and stylish. I don't love their tacky stuff, but the majority of their items.....LOVES.
I better get an invite to the Store Opening...

20% OFF at ends TODAY!

It's FAUX B****H!

Something about watching the Rachel Zoe show makes me want to wear a FAUX fur vest. Yes it seems slightly sacrilegious, but it's fake, so that can't be all that bad. No, NEVER EVER IN MY LIFE would I ever consider wearing real fur. Gross. Dead animal skin/hair on me - NO THANKS, I'll pass. But Juicy Couture has made some lovely to-die-for (get it?) FAUX-fur vests for Fall. And thanks to watching Rachel Zoe [Wearing real fur might I add!!! Boo on that!] with her numerous fur vest ensembles, I want to layer up with one of these FAUX ones over a fitted long-sleeve tee.
Can it be "boot-weather" yet?

P.S. Did I mention wearing REAL fur is gross.

(Found this picture accidentally when searching for a "pink dress" online. What IS this mess?! Please tell me if you know someone that has worn or would even consider wearing that electric green atrocity, so that I can hit them over the head with my Louis bag and knock some [fashion] sense into them).

Enjoy Domaine de Canton French Ginger Liqueur.

Inspired by the French tradition in which sweet and fresh elixirs are fortified by fine eaux de vie and cognac, the recipe evokes an era of tropical romance and continental sophistication that
is both elegant and timeless.

Bloomingdales SALE coming up (15% off!)

Starts on August 27th. But you can pre-sale right now for the items you really want and then pick them up on the 27th :)

Sequined Beret

Love it. Normally I'm not a big fan of sequins. They remind me of Vegas show-girls and excessively gaudy St. John outfits. But once in awhile sequins can add that hint of class and style to an outfit. This beret (from Forever21) fits in that category. It's perfect for fall and winter season. Pair it with bright colored top or sweater. Bonjour!

These boots were made for...

...every outfit! I'm in love with the pair of Frye boots that I'm wearing today:

Frye "Jane 14" Tall Pull-On Boot ($297.95)

They are especially perfect with my grey skinny jeans. These are my other new love right now. 1, because they fit perfectly. 2, because they have a little zipper on the ankle. And 3, because they were $12.50 at Forever21. Wahoo!

So this is what will make my legs look long, huh... that case, I'M SOLD!

This adorable drop-waist dress is from Banana Republic's Fall Preview collection.
"Relaxed and easy, our knit dress looks stylish in a drop-waist silhouette, a shirred neckline and dolman sleeves."

The best part is, they even have a Petite version that is 3" shorter AND a Long version that is 3" longer. Lots of options for the perfect fit. This dress would look perfect with dark tights and booties for work and then makes an easy switch to evening with a sexy wedge heel.
