Sexy Summer Dresses

It seems that I love almost every dress I've seen by Phoebe Couture. Recently in my search for a hot, pleated number since that style is so in right now and I needed a stunner to wear to a wedding in August, I found a Calvin Klein beauty very similar to this Tadashi Shutter Pleat dress (left). Then as I continued to torture myself as I sometimes do when shopping, I was elated to see so many Phoebe Couture designs. The strapless beaded dress (below) happens to be one of my favs! So, if you're new to this incredible designer, don't waste another day being ill-informed! I sure didn't! Now I just have to chooose one to wear. Decisions, decisions...

Michael Memorabilia

I'm SURE that I'm not the only one who's been scouring the net for MJ Fashion so here's my pick for one of the best places to find current designs at great prices! Check out cafepress.com

If you want vintage and you're willing to pay the price, you can always find something cool on ebay.

Big Girl One-sies?

Could this really be a good comeback from 2 decades ago? Kim Kardashian certainly thinks so as she sports the Black Halo Jumpsuit ($390). A number of fashion designer agree with her; namely Maison Martin Margiela, Proenza Schouler, Marc Jacobs, Dolce and Gabbana and a myriad of others.
I personally have one very similar to this that I've been holding on to, just in case and the way things have been progressing with this particular flashback, the Style Mayvin just might be spotted in this one-step approach to getting dressed.

Avant-Garde Accessory

With a name like the "Skinny Double-wrap Round Pyramid Stud Bracelet", what accessory bag would be complete without one? The name truly does say it all. This piece is part of Linea Pelle's new collection and puts a softer, more chic spin on the punk rocker bracelets from the 80's. Constructed from fine Italian leather (like there's any other leather option), solid brass studding and available in four colors, this double wrap bracelet with buckle closure measures in at 14" which in this case means, one size really does fit all.

Beautiful Booties

Nope....it's not what you're thinking. Get your mind out of the gutter and onto these cute little booties! That still didn't quite come out right but anywho...these are by far the cutest shoes I've seen in a while. Although they have received mixed reviews, I for one am completely sold! Originally a Dolce Vita style (pictured left), the Adam bootie sells for around $120. It has since been knocked off by everyone from Nine West ($59.99) to gojane.com ($20.99) so even if you think the style might be just a passing phase, you can still get the look. Come on...you know you want to!

Model of the Month - Indian Beauty

How refreshing is it to see fashion embrace other nationalities?

London's STORM agency & FORD NY really found a gem with Lakshmi Menon. Born in Bangalore, India she is truly a beauty to behold. At 5'9" with the near perfect measurements 32/24/35 to be exact, her long black hair, smoldering eyes and beautiful complexion are what make her so special.

Appearing in Hermes S/S 2008 runway show, Swatch campaign and Givenchy Resort 2009 among many others, Lakshmi's unique look seems to be captivating audiences far and wide.
