We may all want to while away the hours prancing from one sample sale to the next, or loading our virtual shopping carts with an entire season’s worth of new duds. Of course, real life (and even realer bank accounts) get in the way. The Goods, our new curated daily feature, delivers one stand-out steal hand-selected for your quick and easy shopping pleasure. Today’s find: a flouncy denim Alice + Olivia dress for the 20th-century Zelda Fitzgerald.
We all know the ins and outs of wardrobe staples — a plain white tee, dark denim, and a timeless LBD come to mind — but the same goes for beauty. We wanted to find out the must-have products that our favorite fashion insiders never leave home without: the go-to goodies that instantly put a pep in our most stylish friends’ steps. This week, Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet lets us in on the magic all-purpose ointment she makes sure to pick up across the pond.
What is it about this time of year that our calendars seem to be filling up with more and more events with each passing week? And far be it from us to throw on the same old dresses we’ve been wearing all summer — the cooler weather calls for an updated look for after hours, and who better to talk to about dressing up this season than the queen of the cocktail frock herself, Stacey Bendet.
The first thing Louise Roe said to us after we met her at last night’s Alice + Olivia spring 2013 presentation was, “Oh my gosh, I love your necklace! Where did you get it?” We told her it was a Zara piece, but I painted over the clear rhinestones with neon nail polish. And boom, the Glamour editor-at-large’s eyes widened as if she just heard that Tom Ford was having a sample sale.
Collaborations are a dime a dozen these days, but we simply can’t resist those that involve ice cream.
How sad were you when three time US National Ice Skating Champion Johnny Weir announced that he was leaving fashion behind last month to train for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi? (We know, we know — we were devastated, too!) Fret no longer! Though he’ll be training hard for the most of the next two years, he told us last night that he’ll take a little time here and there to do a few fashion-related things.
It’s Day 6 of Fashion Week and while we kind of feel like jerks complaining (Wah! Fashion is so hard!), we have to be honest: our brains feel like Blake Lively’s mouth. (Full of cotton and marbles. Zing! Aaaannyway.) All of which is to say: Alice + Olivia’s cupcake, booze, and sequin-filled presentation at The Plaza Monday night is exactly what we needed.
Though Tim Gunn doesn’t agree, we happen to think Suri Cruise has sick style. We do admit, however, that mom Katie Holmes spends a whole lot of money to keep her daughter in designer duds. In the spirit of Fashion Week, Holmes made some purchases for Suri at Alice + Olivia‘s Bryant Park outpost.
Several photos surfaced Thursday from the highly anticipated Rodarte for MAC make-up line, set to launch September 15. The leaked photos contained an array of “muted feminine” shades that stayed true to the Gothic beauty style most known of the brand. But we can’t help but wonder, are non-pale beauties excluded from this collection? And that’s not all.
