|Glass Slippers are So Old Fashion How About a Pair of Dolce and Gabbana Crystal Shoes
You have $2500, if you're like me you are putting a down payment on a car not a pair of pumps. But for you economically endowed, fashion frenzied or crazy wtf are thinking girls, you have an opportunity to light a up room like never before. I mean think about it...Cinderella just crashed the office Xmas party turns all the heads and every other women in the room is now an ugly step sister. Take that you Broom Hildas, for the price of a small pony you could probably generate enough green from the envy that oozes in every room you walk to pay for them. And if all that jealously is not enough, wow you'll probably be stepping on everyone on the way out locked arm in arm with your prince charming. Diamonds may be a girls best friend, but I bet not one of you wouldn't like to take a these sparkly shoes for a spin and write your own fairy tale.

|As Seen on the Streets of Buenos Aires...Early Spring October 2012 - The Thrifty Look - Homeless Haute is In
As the leaves turn on this side of the world, it takes a whole other meaning down under in Argentina. Spring is just beginning and fashion there can be seen as a reflection of what seems to be happening in America, and in other parts of the world. The trend seems to be developing further as thrift shoppers seem to be embracing the look, instead of hiding it. Un-tied shoes are nothing new, but a distinctive un-tied un-refined look has popped up in Los Angeles, Amsterdam and here in Argentina. Whether its based on the green reuse trend or something new homeless haute is happening. Is it more than a sub trend or will we see it develop further? Let us know what you think in the comments.

|Jennifer Aniston Joins Creative Forces with a New Line of Beauty Products Called Living Proof.
Okay, we don't think this story would be very exciting, even if Jen (that's what her friends call her, for the record we don't know her personally) Aniston is involved. However, these products are the result of work done by MIT Professor Dr. Robert Langer and do represent some of the newest findings in Beauty. Also, the company does seem to have attracted some names from big pharma and retail like Merck and Victoria Secret to name a few. Time will tell but we thought this story might actually be news.
Living Proof announced today it is joining creative forces with Jennifer Aniston as she becomes a co-owner and hair care spokesperson in the ground-breaking company. Living Proof was founded by Dr. Robert Langer , Institute Professor ofMIT and by Jon Flint and Amir Nashat of Polaris Venture Partners, a leading venture capital firm that supports the translation of scientific discoveries into meaningful products. Living Proof has distinguished itself by attracting world class scientists and utilizing advanced scientific technologies that originated from MIT to solve women's toughest beauty problems.

|As Seen on the Streets of Amsterdam - Fall 2012
Weather continues to cool and outfits are gradually getting more layered. Soft cottony shirts and scarfs are seen all over town. Another trend is the printed jeans and/or pants, which are not just indigenous to Europe they are seen abundantly in the US and Asia as well.
I love the models use of color, brave patterns of dots and crossing lines against conservative navy jacket and copper scarf. What do you think, too busy? or just the right stuff?
Another notable feature is the shoulder satchel. I have seen more satchels globally this year and the trend seems to be growing. Big bags are tired and it appears women are ready to minimize. Finally, the model, Agnes is wearing very cool leather, masculine I might add, desert boots. I love the style and the color matches the Satchel again, creating a more conservative bent to the outfit. Do you like this style, let us know in the comments.

|As Seen on the Streets of Helsinki - Fall 2012
By California Standards it's winter already in Finland, but there its just Fall; even so everyone is getting all wrapped up in color. I have noticed a lot more color on the streets of Europe of late, but in Finland its especially true.
Aino is going with violet from head to toe, contrasting it with a blue yellow combination I have seen before; can't say its my favorite but the handbag has Helsinki's signature all over it. I love her purple swede boots...I wonder if she has a pair of blue swede shoes (please forgive me). Aino's hat makes the outfit, I love the little derby which I have to say looks more feminine than the fedora's that have gained some popularity in the States. Finally, the turquoise earrings are a nice touch and I think tie things up nicely. What do you think? Will you be bundled up in purple, blue and yellow this season? Never know you might be savvy enough to pull it off like Aino.

|Fashion Forward Functional Form Fits for Your iPhone and iPad from Bodhi
Bodhi continues its tradition offering high end fashion handbags that brings together high tech usability with an eye for style. The new collection offers a range of accessories for the most discerning chic geek; and even if your not chic or a geek you can still look stylish shouldering one of the new bags.
Bodhi has been showing fashion forward tech designs since the first iPhone hit the scene in 2007. Joseph Janus, Senior Vice President and Creative Director at Bodhi, showcased the Bodhi tech line to Dillard's, William Dillard, III- corporative vice president over accessories in 2009. Dillard saw a huge opportunity and believed that Bodhi had come up with a new and innovative idea that had not yet been seen in the fashion or technology markets. There was a great need for products that were both fashionable and functional and Bodhi spearheaded the initiative. After showcasing their tech cases to numerous buyers and being told that department stores "didn't carry stuff like this", Dillard took a risk and put Bodhi's tech products in 200 stores 2010. The risk proved to be a smart business move and the line has since started a trend in department store tech sales.
Bodhi's innovative tech designs set the trend and now an estimated 10-12% of sales in department stores come from small leather goods. The brand now dominates all major department store tech sales and is featured in Neiman Marcus, Dillard's, Bloomingdales, Macys, Lord & Taylor, The Bay and Nordstrom's. They are the most innovative company in tech today and have more distribution than anyone else in the designer tech market making them the clear leader and visionary with one of the most extensive tech lines. After much success selling exclusively in department stores, Apple felt that the tech-savvy ideas that Bodhi brought to fashion coincided seamlessly with their business mentality. Apple approached Bodhi and for the past two years Bodhi has been selling tech accessories to Apple making them the first company ever to have a leather bag inside of the Apple store.

|As Seen on the Streets - Copenhagen Fall 2012
Camouflage has been seen in more than one European location this season solidifying it as a trend. I have mostly seen it in jackets, but in this absolutely heart stopping ensemble we see it in a matching shirt as well. Interestingly the trend seems to be for Tops and Outerwear with bottoms not making much of an appearance. You have to love the contrasting orange trousers and the mix of leather and gold jewelry, not to mention the round rim turtle shell sunglasses.
The uncertainty and trouble in the financial markets of Europe seems to be forging change in many aspects of society. Adventurous styles like this one are finding their place while many older more conservative styles are becoming out of place.
Dare to dress up your world with an apparel choice from outside your environment. Camy jackets or shirts, like these are a pretty safe choice compared to some others and maybe a good place for you to start. Really get brave and pair it with orange or red pants or jeans. If you do there is no doubt you will be putting a little style into your life and who knows what journey that might start.
This beautiful fashion is brought to you by the blog Copenhagen Street Style.
As Seen on the Streets of Milan, Italy - Fall 2012
Holy S*it a Valentino Dress and Moto Jacket with pink Nike trainers and blue earrings (sorry but I couldn't get a good shot of the earrings).
Somehow this outfit goes from eye wincing train-wreck about to occur to inspirational. Maybe its the way the girl carries herself, maybe its because there are definite changes in fashion taking place in Europe now, or maybe its just because its Milan but I like it. What do you think?
This piece is brought to you by "All the Pretty Birds" a blog from Milan Italy where everyone's play clothes are by Valentino and Ferragamo.
|Tis the Season to Par*t*ay! Believe It or Not It's Just Around the Corner.
And wild prints are the International trend this holiday season, so we say from what we've seen in London, Antwerp and Amsterdam to name a few. Black printed fabrics with audacious prints seem to be what's on people's list so I would expect to see more this winter. Dress them up with not so normal accessories like moto jackets, leggings, leather boots and textured jewelry to add a little stylistic contrast. What makes these party dresses even more appealing is the price, Jovani has worked hard to keep pricing in line with shrinking budgets and you can save some serious dosh.
In today's fashion world, it's important to be cutting edge, but equally important to have long-lasting style
Jovani's fashions for this autumn, as well as still-to-come designs for 2013 are designed to keep you looking stylish for years.
It's a tragic fact: Italy may be the world's fashion capitol, but in its suffering economy, it's one place where luxury items have to be durable. Consequently, the average Italian is spending less on new fashion than most other industrialized nations. How sad to see this happen in the home of Versace, Armani, Gucci and the rest.
Here in The USA, we're not in the midst of a spending free-for-all either, but luxury is making a comeback, as evidenced by the meteoric rise of Jovani over the past few years. However, the back-to-basics approach of some of the major brands across the Atlantic has had an effect on designers all over the world, including Jovani. Consequently, the idea that a dress imbued with timelessness could (and should) be cutting edge is making a big splash in Jovani's collection of party dresses, and soon will be making an impact on your closet for years to come.
That's not to say there's necessarily a move toward more conservative styles at Jovani. Jovani still prioritizes fun and whimsy, but by emphasizing some of the most tried-and-true flourishes, Jovani has made it almost impossible for time's ravages send your prom dresses to the secondhand store. Although a shopper coming upon one of these Jovani numbers on a search for homecoming dresses would be making quite a find.
Taking style number 157999 as an example, Jovani clearly makes the case that contemporary style needn't be sacrificed for timeless elegance in couture dresses. One shouldered, it may be, and adorned with floral appliques to ensure that the wearer conveys a sense of fun, and joie de vivre, this gown makes the wearer nonetheless the pinnacle of class and good taste.
|Make Your Dad Cry for all the Right Reasons When You Walk Down the Aisle
When you wear a Melissa Sweet Wedding Dress all eyes will be on you. The beautifully fashioned gowns are distinctly different giving you a style all your own, yet they still uphold the classic nuptial flair. The new line is a leap from the past and is specially designed for today's Bride.
Legendary bridal designer, Melissa Sweet is unveiling her Melissa Sweet for David's Bridal Collection this month exclusively in David's Bridal stores nationwide, in Canada and online.

"I look forward to bringing the Melissa Sweet aesthetic to an entirely new segment of brides," says Melissa Sweet. "Our first collection is a beautiful expression that speaks to the bride who loves vintage dressing and wants something a little different than the traditional glitz and glam."
Melissa Sweet rose to the top of the wedding world with her original designs. She was featured regularly in leading bridal and fashion publications and was recognized for dressing celebrities, including Guiliana Rancic, Beverly Mitchell and Kristin Smith. In 2010, she took a sabbatical to start a family in Costa Rica where she also founded Vida Autentica, a non-profit that helps nourish families and foster economic prosperity throughout the developing world by building greenhouses and funding organic agriculture education programs.
"This expansion is one of the most significant for David's Bridal in recent years and will build upon our portfolio of designer collections, including designers Vera Wang, Oleg Cassini and Galina Signature," says Bob Huth, President and CEO of David's Bridal. "We are excited to offer another new and exciting opportunity to brides who have been longing for Melissa Sweet's modern vintage style aesthetic."

|Seen on the Streets - Amsterdam - Fall 2012
As summer blends to fall and the air cools we found this great mix-up from Dam Style.
Camouflage Jacket with Faux Fir Collar and really strange, but some how cool denim sleeves. The jacket works nicely on Annelijn, a 23 year old art student, because she wears a matching blue denim shirt and bleach washed jeans. The faux fir collar keeps her neck cozy and warm as its striking contrast makes a subtle fashion statement. Although uniquely Central European this style is functional for many US cities and one that might just get you a look. The jeans are form fitting and have a bit extra stretch, much like Telegaleria Jeans , and do a nice job of telling Annelijn's story in a way a photo only can.
If you like this style, or even tried it give us a shout and tell us you thoughts.
