I Spy: shopbop & SATC

Sex and the City’s fashionable foursome hit the big screen nationwide today. In honor of the event anticipated by style mavens across the country, let’s take a look at one of the many fabulous pieces of fashion to grace the silver screen: The Lake & Stars’ We’re On a Break Romper. Carrie dons the sexy piece with worn-to-perfection boyfriend jeans, and the pairing is another example of Patricia Field’s genius. It’s sexy and carefree and utterly unexpected, the epitome of that certain je ne sais quoi every stylish female strives for. *Image sourced from IMDB.com.

First Fashion: The Best of What’s New

For me, most days are classic days, and today I have three excellent reasons to keep that trend going.
If I could wear Velvet every day of the week, I would, and lucky for me, this dress is bringing me one step closer to that goal. Dressed up or down, it’s perfection. (Velvet - Becca Dress)
A timeless trench is a wardrobe must-have, and this little ditty from Rag & Bone is about as classic as they come. I know I’ll wear it for years. (Rag & Bone - Mac Trench)
The silhouette is pure elegance, yes, but this pair’s true beauty is on the inside. A padded footbed makes wearing them the equivalent of walking on clouds, and the hidden platform gives height without taking me into ankle-twisting territory. (Theory - Bijan Patent Pump)
You know there’s more. Find it in What’s New.

New Summer Styles from T-Bags

The common cold. Hiccups. That full-closet-and-nothing-to-wear feeling. We're at a loss about the first two, but we've found a surefire remedy for the latter: new summer styles from T-Bags. Little off-the-shoulder tops, kimono frocks and sweeping maxi dresses in pretty prints or summer brights are just what we need to stay chic in the heat. Add simple sandals, an armful of slim bangles, and a slouchy bag and we're all set. Summer's here. Make sure your closet's ready. Shop new styles from T-Bags, right here at shopbop.

Perfectly Imperfect: Alkemie Jewelry

Perfection is for the fearful, the boring, the uncreative, or at least that’s what I tell myself as I rush out the door in yet another outfit cobbled together from the clean pile of laundry. As it turns out, I’m in fashionable company with my embracing of imperfection. Jewelry design newcomer Alkemie (I’m a sucker for a phonetically spelled name) employs this same aesthetic (albeit in a more deliberate, elegant, and fully-realized fashion), creating rough-hewn yet glamorous pieces from “reclaimed” metals. At once utterly modern and timelessly cool, Alkemie’s Stingray Cuff has all the makings of a signature piece.

Feeling Bold: New Marc by Marc Jacobs Styles

Every summer we have a lot to look forward to: music festivals, day after day of sun, achieving that perfect tan. But our favorite summer event? The arrival of new Marc by Marc Jacobs styles. This year we've got pretty dresses in quirky prints, cool handbags, eye-catching kicks, and enough tops, shorts, and skirts to make us swoon. Even better? They're done with a nod to 1970s retro funk. New Marc styles have arrived. Find them, at shopbop.

First Fashion: The Best of What’s New

Too many days in a row in jeans and a tee has me craving something a little fancy.
Like a modern take on that effortlessly elegant ’70s-Hollywood-Pool-Party look I’m forever traipsing after. It shimmers ever so slightly, and I love how the sheer overlay subdues the bold print of the skirt. (Iisli - Shimmer Nile Dress)
My love affair with blazers continues! This one evokes the elegance of men’s formalwear, but with a decidedly feminine fit. I’m wearing it this weekend with dark skinnies, a white tee, and my patent Loeffler Randall Pumps. (Alexander Wang - Boyfriend Blazer)
I’ve been losing my mind over Elizabeth and James ever since the first pieces started trickling in a couple months back. As this top shows, the designers have clearly mastered that elusive combination of fashion-forward, feminine, and utterly wearable. (Elizabeth and James - Joni Tunic)

McQueen is King

With a bad-boy reputation and past shows akin to drastic seasonal mood swings, Alexander McQueen’s fall runway marked a renaissance of spirit and a return to his love of fashion. So says a profile of the designer in the June issue of W magazine. The fascinating look at England’s king of style walks through the last year of McQueen’s life and how it influenced his critically acclaimed fall 2008 collection. The profile has a great selection of images from the runway show as well as a look at McQueen’s new Melrose store. And if you can’t wait for fall, the McQ spring collection should hold you over. The streetwise styles with just a whiff of rebellion are the picture of avant-garde style.

Happy Memorial Day!

Whatever your plans for this Memorial Day, I hope the sun is shining and the grill is hot. I just got back from a stay in the great north woods of Wisconsin, three days of wearing nothing but my worn-to-shreds jeans and favorite tees. It was bliss but I’m ready to get back to more refined style, so for tonight’s barbeque, I’m going with a sweet dress and sleek flat sandals. What’s your ideal Memorial Day ensemble? Build it now, rock it at the next summer bbq.
