These are hott!!  If I could be granted three wishes by the fashion genie, one of them would be to have these in my closet.  The other two involve a ridiculously expensive car and a private island called Celenaville.  A girl can dream, cant she?  In the meantime, I plan on saving some pretty pennies to get these babies into my shoe collection.  Here are the stats:

Giuseppe Zanotti Jeweled Fish Sandals, as seen in “Sex and the City”. A metallic leather sandal with adjustable metal chain closure and fish t-strap with Swarovski® crystal detail. 4″ leather covered heel. Leather lined and leather sole.

Now who could resist these darlings?

Keep it strictly stylish!

The launch took place over the weekend at Kitson in L.A. The line features bracelets and necklaces with charms on organic cotton cords in a variety of colors. Garcelle recently made a statement saying, “I have a jewelry line for kids and teenagers – or the young at heart.  We have ballerinas, we have teddy bears. For boys, we have cars and crowns.  So sort of fun and rock and roll but still really cute pieces.”

Now, I love Michelle Obama‘s style— affordable and classy chic. The night that President-elect Barack Obama gave his acceptance speech, Michelle wore a stunning number from the Narcisco Rodriguez Spring 2009 collection. Goes to show that real women with curves can wear runway creations and look fab while doing so! Whether it’s fresh off the runway or fresh off the racks, Michelle is sure to spark conversations of “what did she wear?” every time:

michelle-viewIf you still want the outrageously outsold dress that Mrs. Obama wore on the View earlier this year,  it is now available from White House/Black Market for the affordable price of $148. You too can look like a First Lady!

Usher is paying a pretty penny to look oh-so-fly during his “One Night Stand” tour.  His costumes are exclusively designed by Dean and Dan Caten of DSquared2 (who are two of Rihanna’s fav designers). The tour is really a mini-tour that will include intimate venues and nightclubs.  Ladies, get ready!

Form Vogue.com

USHER has had a high fashion makeover for his One Night Stand Ladies Only concert tour, which kicked off this weekend in Atlantic City, courtesy of DSquared2.
Design duo Dean and Dan Caten have created a series of stage looks for the R&B star, starting out with suave tuxedos and barber-shop styles seen in the label’s spring/summer 2009 Seventies-heavy catwalk collection, and moving through to something a little more intimate in the shape of a custom designed silk robe and slippers (complimented, but of course, by dancers in DSquared2 lingerie).
“We are extremely excited to collaborate with Usher and his concert tour,” say the Catens. “We are both huge fans of his music, and are thrilled that for this special event he has chosen looks from our collections that we think are perfect for a One Night Stand.”

Must be nice…..keep it strictly stylish!

Being that Fall is officially in, the most convenient and fabulous accessory is also back: Scarves, Check out how celebs wear them:

There are several ways to wear a scarf. You can check out WhoWhatWear’s How-To video here to see their featured examples. Being that it’s Fall and there are so many trends to keep up with, scarf’s are the safest and most fashionable ways to keep up with the trends without spending a fortune. Although your whole look may be basic, a scarf can really elevate your look to the next level.

Their are many many ways to wear a scarf, as seen above, my favorite being the way Jessica Biel wore her leopard print scarf while out in Rome. The most popular way to wear a scarf is how Rihanna wore her fringed Balenciaga scarf while dining in NYC and how Beyonce wore her scarf while landing in the Philippines.

There are silk scarves (Beyonce), lightweight scarves (Rihanna), heavyweight scarves (Jessica Biel, Monica) and knit scarves.

There are many places to purchase a scarf depending on your budget. You can go to Forever 21 ($6-$20), H&M ($10-$40), Urban Outfitters ($20-$50), Bloomingdales ($55-$300), Net-A-Porter ($135-$1000), and many more chain department stores and boutiques.

Here are some of my picks:

Stay fab ladies!
