Purple & Ombre – Two more trends that go well together

If you flip though any fashion magazine these days they will tell you Purple is the IT color for Fall 08. I’m on board with that. I love a deep jewel tone to balance out the sometimes dreary weather and just as dreary colored clothes that appear in Fall.

Imagine my surprise as I was surfing Targaayy (Target for you regualr folks…LOL) when I came upon some cool (and cheap) Purple items. Many of them included two other trends you know I love patent and Ombre. So I figured I would share them with you because I love to help people look stylish and if it can be done cheaply all the better ;).

Purple & Ombre

Xhilaration® Ombre Satchel – Purple (Small $16.99

Xhilaration® Ombre Tote Bag – Purple $19.99

Women’s Mossimo® Deann Ombre Patent Flats – Purple $13.99

Purple lovers only

Jasmine Small Bag – Deep Purple $16.99

Richard Chai for Target® Colorblock Tie Dress – Passion Purple $44.99

Richard Chai For Target® Printed Broken-Stripe Trench Coat – Purple/ Ebony $44.99

Loving a bargain myself I ordered the Ombre Satchel and the Jasmine Small Bag.

Review of Heidi Montag’s 2nd Clothing Line “Heidiwood”

It sucks….LOL….OK OK I’ll expand on that.

I’m not Heidi Montag fan. I don’t watch the show “The Hills” that she is on and I only know her name because all the gossip and fashion blogs talk about her. So this morning when I was watching The View on TV (yep I’m one of those people who watches The View) and she was on I knew who she was but didn’t care. As I was about to mute the TV they said she would be showing pieces from her Heidiwood line. Curious about another celebrity clothing line I decided not to mute the TV just yet.

Well the preview of Heidiwood began on The View stage and just as I suspected it sucked. It looked unoriginal, boring, trashy and cheap. In the silhouettes, there was nothing new or creative. The colors were mostly black and dark grey with one bubble gum pink shirt and one teal blue shirt thrown in. In the choice of length for the dresses, skirt and shirts you got short or short. And in looking at pictures of the clothing close up the fabric looked cheap and unfinished. It reminded me of the clothing they use to carry in G&G or Joyce Leslie when I was younger (Any of you out there who remember those stores?…LOL). This line is the disposable underwear version of clothing. You would wear it once, and I’m hoping whoever does it will do it only on Halloween, and then throw it away. As further proof of my opinion check these outfits out called “Heart Breaker” and “Signature Required“:

And I wasn’t the only one who thought so. New York Magazine describes the line as “It was bad. So bad…….The stuff was the complete opposite of flattering.Stylelist said about the line “Her second collection is out now, and it’s just as trashtastic as the first!….Truly, it looks like any broke, generic college girl’s wardrobe.“. ThinkFashion said this about the clothing line: “The clothes are terrible. Heidi’s line is a combo of trashed-up stripperwear and beachy-blah t’s and minis – a strange mix, but nothing we don’t see every Saturday when we hit the Old Navy then follow up with a lap dance at the local strip bar.” I couldn’t agree more.

My favorite line to describe the celebuline was from ThinkFashion. They wrote “but from a style standpoint, Heidiwood skankwear is not coming within
10 feet of our precious closet space…unless, of course, we’re seeking a
career change.
” I have to concur with WHOLE HEARTEDLY…..And just to reassure you all I’m not changing careers 😉

If after all this wonderful praise you still want to check the celebuline out for yourself: Click Here.

If you can guess how much this jewelry is, I’ll send you the piece of your choice?

As I was wandering the great streets of NYC the other day, I came upon a store that was selling jewelry at unbelievable prices. Granted some of these pieces may not look that expensive but I think others look like they cost more than what I paid for them. So here is the challenge I put towards you readers: The first person who correctly guesses how much I paid for each of these items wins one of the items (the winner can pick the item). Good Luck.

Target’s designers Jovovich-Hawk need to GO!!

I’ve loved many of the designers and lines Target has gotton for their Go International collection. I think it is a much needed category and it injects much needed items into our Fashion industry. I own a Proenza Schouler Corset tank top, a Patrick Robinson white eyelet dress and two Erin Fetherston jackets. I adore all of the items and constantly get compliments on them. But I gotta say that Target’s latest designers Jovovich-Hawk just doesn’t do it for me.

I’ve tried to like their line for Target but it still has not grown on me. I think that is because their items look cheap and not special to me. Whereas many of the other Go designers for Target’s lines were cheap but didn’t look it and many of them looked very special as though they could have stepped off of the designers high priced label runways. While I liked some of the prints Jovovich-Hawk used, I didn’t like the silhouettes they choose.

Here is an example of an eyelet fabric I loved when Patrick Robinson used it awhile ago but I don’t like the jacket they designed with it. I do think the sleeve design is right on trend but that is it.

Here is an example of some prints that I thought were cute for Spring but I don’t like the dress or the top they used them in:

Here is an example of a fabric and silhouette I don’t like. I think this looks cheap and I wouldn’t think this had a designer behind it. More like I could find this at $10 store. Look at it next to the Proenza Schouler Corset tank top. One looks like a designer item and the other doesn’t:

What do you think?

Because they’re so inexpensive (and unlined) they’re the perfect
