How to make this Rachel Zoe look, easy

I'm singing in the rain...just singing in the rain...what a wonderful feeling...

You just want it to rain so you can wear this boot by Christian Siriano at Payless!

My BIG purchase on the Outnet-There is a HUGE sale, don't miss out! Clearance
The inspiration:
The purchase:
Jonathan Aston Tights for only $7.50 each!

My lust-affair with Kate Spade shoes

I wish I could buy every shoe from Kate Spade...but, at around $300 a pop that just won't work with my budget sadly...but, after lusting over the shoes on the site I had an idea to create my own version with shoes from Forever 21...Also, Forever 21 and Payless have shoes that are very similar to these fun styles that I had to share.

The DIY:

Ballet Flat with a pop of fun.  All you need is the shoe-I found a metallic one like this at Forever 21 (rose gold~LOVE), some vintage earrings that I found on etsy and a glue gun or some really strong glue:)

The look-a-likes:

Don't the bottom of these look just like the ones from Kate Spade?  I think so:)

It's all in the little details.

As soon as I read about the Cynthia Rowley BAND-aids I knew I had to have them!  And for $10 plus $11 shipping it might seem crazy, but it is giving back...a dollar of every purchase will go to Design Ignites Challenge.  (I'm not sure if you can buy these at places like Target or only online...does anyone know?)

Trend Alert: The Afghan Pant

The many ways you can wear this fab piece...and inspired by SATC2~:)  I also saw Bobbie Thomas rocking this on the Today Show, you can see another way to rock it below in the video.  Here are a variety of ways you can rock this style.  I think I also saw Louise Roe rocking this look on her show, Plain Jane which gave me another idea for a look I am going to try after I have the little baby:)
Ways to wear:
1. jumper
2. shorts
3. pants
Here is an image of how to wear:

Mark your calendar's fashionista's...there's a new fashion program to add to you list on Thursday Nights

I am excited to share the info about the new show that will be on WE TV starting on next Thursday, August 19th at 10pm.  The show is a makeover show called, You're Wearing That?  The show's host, stylist Luciene Salomone comes from an amazing fashion background and every week she will help mother-daughter pair recapture their inner Diva.  I am getting a similar vibe as the new fashion makeover show on the CW, Plain Jane...but, I say, the more the merrier...and hopefully these will all last a little longer than a season:)

Plus, it looks like Kimberley from American Idol (I think) is on the show this season...check it out...

I LOVE Tucker by Gaby Basora! Be inspired

Check out Louise Roe's closet raid for ensemble inspiration

Watch out fashion world~this girl is EVERYWHERE!  Take note...I see a book soon!:)

The fall Lauren Conrad looks at Kohl's that caught my eye...

Images are thanks to The Budget Babes post.  Thanks for sharing!  These are the looks that caught my eye and that I would consider checking out...I am also curious how this will work since LC is also coming out with a higher end line with her girl friends...we shall see...
I love the color of this dress...You would definitely need to use the slip from the previous post here.

I like the tunic here...and the shoes actually...I wonder if those will be sold at Kohl's too...

I love this dress too...but, once again I think the slip will work wonders for me here...

I only like the top here...I saw this lace styling a lot last year...

I LOVE the nude color palette here.  The skirt is too short for my style...but, I love the look!

I <3 the lace jacket here!

Fall Fashion - It's Kmart!

I am EXCITED to see all of this in person, aren't you!? Snaps to the crew at Kmart Design team!
