Rue La La: Citizens of Humanity Sale  

Rue La La is having a sale on Citizens of Humanity denim for women and men. Jeans are priced at $99 and $110 (most being the latter) so while this isn't the best sale in terms of pricing, the selection is pleasing.

Here are a couple of styles that caught my eye:

The sale ends Wednesday at 11am CST.

Week in Denim  

For once in a long time, Lindsay Lohan opted for a loose-fitting look. Cute jeans too!

Rihanna arrived at Milk studios in NYC. This is one of those once-in-a-blue-moon times that I don't like anything about her look. The hair, the outfit, and the boots don't do anything for me...or her.


I am really feeling Audrina's look. Its a very simple outfit of a tee, ripped jeans, and booties, but this just comes to show that a good fit  alone can make an outfit work.

Who says that white jeans are just for summer?! I don't believe in locking up your white clothing all fall and winter long, but you should at least mix them with seasonal trends...that means lose the white tee and flip-flops Heidi.

Blake Lively was seen on the set of Gossip Girl wearing some great jeggings:

Beyonce arrived in South Korea to perform. This is a fun look for her. I don't love it, but its fun.

So I'm not liking this preppy/rock look that Katie Holmes put together. Its very possible to effectively and fashionably mix trends, but there is nothing here to tie them together.

Ah, Victoria Beckham comes to the rescue to prove my point! THIS is how you mix two looks without looking like you just threw something on! The formal tuxedo jacket with the rocker cords looks fab!

Ashley Tisdale was seen wearing the cutest Siwy wash. I'm thinking I may have to get these...

Stella McCartney for GapKids and babyGap  

Stella McCartney designed a SUPER CUTE children's line for GapKids and babyGap. The 70-piece line which debuts on November 2nd in select Gap stores, includes clothes and shoes, and was designed to “find a kind of balance between Stella as in what I do for adults…and how I see kids, really,” she said. There are some child versions of her adult Fall '09 RTW collection including a gray sweater dress, gray cardigan dress, and gray skinny jeans...with ankle zippers! Cute!

“I guess I tackled it in the same way I would one of my own ready-to-wear collections, but then the challenge was, ‘OK, I’ve got to get into the same mind-set of a kid and what they might like,’” said McCartney. Being a mom of three really served in doing so. "It’s quite a good thing to have kids when you’re designing a kids’ collection, to be aware that they actually have their own point of view.”

The sizes run from a newborn up to size 12.

 I don't have any little kiddies, but if I did, I would be all over this line!

Red Carpet: Whitney Museum Annual Gala  

On Monday night, the Whitney Museum hosted its Annual Gala in NYC last night. For those of you who, like me, have never heard of this museum, here is a little background on the organization:

The Whitney Contemporaries is a dynamic group of art patrons between the ages of twenty-one and forty, committed to supporting the Whitney's mission of championing emerging voices and artistic innovation. Contemporaries are guaranteed exclusive access to the Whitney’s unparalleled resources and the New York art scene.

So, while you  may know who all or most of these people are, I don't, nor do I care; I'm judging them all the same. Ok, so now onto the fashion:

The Good

New Mommy, Jennifer Hudson looked beautiful in Versace.

Dontatella must've loved the fabric so much, she got her very own dress made out of it too! I don't know about those straps on the bodice, but her body looks great in it.

Socialite, Jamee Gregory wore an amazing animal print gown...not an easy feat. If the belt didn't come with it, she gets even MORE kudos and great accessorization!

Socialite, Zani Gugelmann put togeher an unexpected look with these black tights, but I'm really feeling it! They actually make the dress and shoes pop when they otherwise wouldn't have.

Chanel Iman looked great as usual.

Lindsay Lohan wore a hot gold dress! I hate that her hair matches it though.

Andrea Glimcher (I believe may be another socialite) is working formal maternity wear beautifully.

The Bad

The silhouette of Shakira's dress is amazing, but what's going on with the strappy bottom hem AND strappy heels??? Too much!

Socialite, Lauren Santo Domingo in a blah dress in a blah color. Its not awful, I just expect so much more umph from a billionaire...

Socialite, Liz Swig, a neither 20 OR 30-something woman, in a 20-something appropriate dress. Unless you've been blessed with Halle Berry's genes, it matters.

I HATE the styling of Taylor Momsen's look. I think the fishnets are way too harsh.

Mischa Barton's isn't doing anything for her figure. I think this would've suited an older woman better.


The Ugly

Emma Hall with a lollipop around her, NO.

Look at Julie Macklowe. This look is not getting it and her friend knows it too.

The Miscellaneous

No fashion comments here. I just though it was funny to see Gerard Butler checking out Lake Bell's ASSets like that. LOL

Leslie Blume, is that a lobster on your hat??? SMH

I can't decide how I feel about Genevieve Jones' look, but its definitely intriguing.

Spring 2010 Trend: Less is More  

The European shows indicate that a minimal look will be big in the spring. Monotone and muted tones as well as asymmetrical lines were seen all over the runways.

Here are some of the looks:

                     Celine                                                                                           Rick Owens

                Bottega Veneta                                                                                     Balenciaga

                     Akris                                                                                                 Fendi

                                                                                             Jil Sander

I am really enjoying some of these silhouettes, the Rick Owens and Bottega Veneta in particular, but from the looks of things, the shoes are pretty much the main cause for excitement.

Gucci iPhone Application  

Following the trend of Chanel, Ralph Lauren, and Net-A-Porter, today Gucci will launch its first iPhone/iPod Touch application.

Not only will it offer a 24-hour music channel, hotel and restaurant tips, playlists and a turntable for mixing Mark Ronson tracks, it will also enable users to purchase an exclusive pair of sneakers from the Ronson collection. Also launching this Saturday, is Gucci's traveling sneaker store.

"I designed the Gucci app like I would any other accessory," Gucci creative director Frida Giannini tells WWD. "Music is an essential part of my vision, and the app is the perfect instrument to be able to bring music to the virtual world of Gucci. Working with Mark Ronson has obviously given me the opportunity to include a cool factor and exclusive content."

I'm actually a BlackBerry user, but I will be checking this out on my iPhone user/friend's phones!

The Warehouse Sale: NYC  

The Warehouse sale will be in NYC this Friday and Saturday. The Warehouse Sale is a premium denim sample sale-type event that offers over 20,000 men and women's items for up to 80% off. They travel all over the U.S. (and internationally) for a weekend event that is usually located at the hosting city's convention center. I've been to a couple of these and they are pretty hit or miss, and the size range isn't that large. So basically, if you have an easy-to-fit frame, you have a good chance of walking away with a purchase.

This is also a good opportunity to find some cheaper jeans to try some DIYs - bleaching, ripping, etc.

Gilt Groupe is having a pretty amazing sale on Habitual denim. This is a great brand and there are SO many styles and washes offered at $68 - $78 so get there now!

Fashion Fail: Rodarte for Target  

Sooo, some pics of the highly anticipated Rodarte/Target Go International line have leaked...and I'm sad to report that I. HATE. IT. I tried to look at these photos from several different perspectives to determine if it was the styling that turns me off, and not the clothes. After getting over my initial shock and disappointment, I determined that I would wear (though not necessarily buy) the cardigans, but these other pieces can kick rocks. This is a fashion fail for me. To think, I was going to take an early lunch to be at the store when it opened! Not anymore...

Here are some photos:


Before I upset some of you by coming off as seemingly "closed-minded," let me show you what I expected. I expected something along the lines of the pieces I've seen some celebs wear:


So, as you could imagine, this line would leave a lot left to be desired. What are your thoughts?
