I love anything vintage and in fact I go shopping in vintage stores as much as I can. I even prefer vintage stores to the mall. To me, if you can wear a piece of fashion from years before that’s like a honor. It’s not very often you can find a great piece of vintage fashion in great condition so when I do find something I cherish it!
When I laid my eyes on the WGACA Vintage: Vintage Chanel ’80s Charm Bracelet I was instantly in love. First and foremost, it was Chanel and who doesn’t love a gorgeous Chanel piece? Second, it was the ultimate ladies bracelet having little charms of everything we love. Charms of shoes, purses, and perfume fill the bracelet and the gold has even aged to give it an authentic vintage look. The price scares me a little but when it comes to Chanel, I think we can all agree that it’s worth it.
You can purchase the Vintage Chanel Charm at Shop Bop for $3,300.
my-wardrobe.com, one of the UK’s leading online retailers of ‘accessible luxury’ clothing, shoes and accessories brands, has teamed up with Brit designer, Olivia Rubin on an exclusive Little Black Dress in aid of Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (FTBC).
Olivia Rubin, one of 2010′s hottest labels to watch, who counts Fearne Cotton, Cheryl Cole and Olivia Palermo as fans, was the obvious choice to collaborate with on this special project. Famed for her unique designs and great fit, the covetable FTBC dress is bodycon in style with a sweetheart neckline and sheer chiffon overlay, tying elegantly on the shoulder.
For the second year running, my-wardrobe.com supports FTBC, the flagship fashion campaign of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, a charity dedicated to the prevention, treatment and ultimate eradication of breast cancer. The campaign, launching in March 2010 will raise vital funds enabling Breakthrough to continue with ground-breaking research, as well as to campaign for better services and raise awareness of breast cancer.
The limited-edition Olivia Rubin dress will be available to buy from the end of March 2010, with 30% of every sale going directly to the charity. my-wardrobe.com joins a host of other retailers including Melissa Odabash, Marks and Spencer, Top Shop and Laura Ashley, all aiming to contribute as much as possible to the £10.5 million that has already been raised by FTBC, since its launch in 1996.
Sarah Curran, founder of my-wardrobe.com comments, “my-wardrobe.com is immensely proud to be involved in the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer initiative for 2010. In our second year of collaborating on this pivotal campaign, we are very excited to be working with one of our designers Olivia Rubin on producing a beautiful dress, to raise awareness and money for this hugely important charity.”
L.A.M.B. always has the most funky, but yet stylish shoes. L.A.M.B. didn’t disappoint with the “Flavia” heels. They kind of remind me of a futuristic and sexy version of a peep toe shoe.
I would totally wear these shoes when I go out at night. They definitely are the type of shoe that would catch people’s eyes, since they look kind of “weird.” You can literally wear these shoes with anything. A dress, skinny jeans, leggings, capri’s, and etc., these stunning heels would look great with any outfit.
The L.A.M.B. “Flavia” heels can be purchased at Zappos for $429. They are a bit pricey, but for a shoe that is so stylish and versatile, who can say no?

I love sheer drape throw-overs, it’s a spring necessity for me.
My current number 1 pick of the week is this one pictured above by designer Jasmine Di Milo (, with Elizabeth + Ashley’s version trailing close behind. see below)
What I love most about the Sheer Open Drape throw-over is it’s lightweight and perfect for those hot summer nights. Wear it over a pair of skinny jeans and tank or match it with a simple summer dress.
What I least love is the price. I don’t want to sound like a cheap-ey, but the $750 price tag is a little turn-off, especially when there is a similar jacket by E&J.
If you want to achieve the same casual-chic wrap blazer jacket look, but for half the price, check out MKA’s Elizabeth and James Black Minimalist Glossy Wrap Jacket version ($471).
Both of the styles mentioned are available over at my-wardrobe
Elizabeth and James is one of the hottest new-ish hip contemporary labels out there. Launched in 2007 by the fashionable duo Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, their designs embrace fashion forward, effortless style.
One of my favorite picks of the season: The Tokyo.
This gorgeous spring necessity is made from a sheer, light blue and green (with a hint of rust) print chiffon / silk and features long wide sleeves with option to turn-up (and fasten into place), pintuck detail front and plunging v-neckline with pewter silk trim, and a single fastens button at the front.
The Elizabeth and James Tokyo is available at My-Wardrobe
If you love Elizabeth and James, but are looking to save a couple bucks, go check out shopbop. They have a similar style, called the Elsa on sale for $90 off retail.

The “Make Your Own Havaianas” booth took over the F.W. backstage IMG Lounge!
Celebs and guest were invited to personalize their own limited edition pair with initials, studs, or Swarovski crystals in different colors. Sounds like awesome fun, huh?
Amanda Bynes and Michelle Trachtenberg customized the charcoal limited edition with their initials, while Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel picked up a matching pairs with their initials (awwe)
Price range for the non-personalized runs about $22 to $40 – you can find those at ShopBop!
