Flashback to the 60’s

While attending shows at New York Fashion Week this season, it was very apparent that the sixties are an inspiration for the fall. Take Nicole Miller for example. Velvet, bell-bottoms, suede, vests and floppy hats were among the runway. The designer also incorporated prints and patchwork leather; overall the collection had that Beatles-era vibe. But Miller was not the only one. Gwen Stefani’s line, L.A.M.B., made quite the retro statement. She took on a more rock n’ roll sixties spin with her collection using neon colors and statement sweaters. The beehive hair and overstated lashes the models sported synced perfectly with printed jumpsuits and mini skirts. Overall both created fierce yet fun collections.

Winter Check List: Do You Have A Fur Vest?

If I could pick one item to add to your wardrobe for the upcoming winter season, I would say a faux fur vest is a must! This stellar item can make layering up in the cold weather a bit more fun. Take inspiration from stylist Rachel Zoe, as she is caught wearing fur vests often along with Kim Kardashian and the Olsen twins! Styling Tips: Wear a solid colored long sleeve top under your vest, pair with wide leg jeans or skinnies, throw on an over-sized ring and you are ready to go. Oh, and don’t forget those pumps!! Note: This is a great gift for someone fashionable in your life for the upcoming holidays!

Dress Picks from DressRebeccaJean: Quirky Opinions, Sound Judgement.

Meet DressREBECCAjean, a blog dedicated to dresses. CHEERS GALORE. The girls behind it all: these two slightly anonymous 20-somethings discovered their love for dresses when they realized they had gone a whole 7 years saving money to pay for a couch, but all the while they managed to buy to-die-for frocks. Yep, sounds familiar for fashionistas. Food or shoes? It’s a serious decision, and usually the uncookable choice wins. You’ll start seeing these girls on LOLO quite frequently, so get familiar with their story, and keep your eyes peeled for their sweet dress suggestions.

Someone should buy this dress.

Name: Golda Houndstooth Dress
Brand: Diane von Furstenberg
Price: $345
Get it: At Bergdorf or Cusp

Advantages: Ahhh houndstooth. Usually reserved for Bear Bryant’s hat or bulky winter coats (love her). Now, get the pattern’s visual stimulation without that scratchy wool feeling!… err, sorry, we don’t usually sound like infomercials.  If this beauty looks/feels like any other DVF dress that we’ve tried on (but haven’t had the balls or dolla bills to buy), once you put it on, you will never want to take it off, or – as past experiences would have it – leave the dressing room of a fancy store you have no business being in. (Turns out shoplifting is illegal in all 50 states.)

Interesting fact: Wikipedia told us that a small scale version of this pattern can be referred to as puppytooth. We use the term ‘interesting’ loosely.  And now we’re hungry.  Click the link; we don’t eat puppies.

Disadvantages: This dress is giving us seasonal confusion. Houndstooth evokes visions of warmth, but this will not warm you without the help of tights, booties and a pea coat.  The fact that it’s 80 degrees outside (here in Texas) and almost November is enough to make you black out when trying to get dressed in the morning.  You don’t need this dress adding to your superficial woes.


Name: Wrap Dress
Brand: Victoria’s Secret
Price: $69.50
Get it at:

Advantages: Channel your inner DVF while holding on to your inner wallet.  Also, we all know Diane can be a bit conservative (and by that we mean snobby), but with Victoria you know exactly what you’re getting.  motor-boated.

Disadvantages: I mean do you really want to wear a wrap dress that’s not a DVF?  That’s like wearing red-soled shoes that aren’t Christian Louboutin’s. Other things that fall under this category:

  • Non-alcoholic beer (beer)
  • Ashton Kutcher (Charlie Sheen – please do not take this to mean that we watch “Two and a Half Men”, we do not, we never will and we don’t want to, but we do read a lot of The Superficial, so we know when things go down… like Sara Leal. YAHTZEEEE!)
  • Psycho Lindsay Lohan of crack-head infamy (Sweet Lindsay Lohan of Mean Girls fame)
  • “Footloose” October 2011 (“Footloose” 1984 + Kevin Bacon)

Any dress that elicits the thought of two philanderers, two felons, an 80’s remake and fake alcohol should really make you think twice about purchasing.
