Victoria’s Secret seven ways dress – it better come with lessons

By Andrea Thatcher on February 12th, 2008


This Victoria’s Secret 7-in-1 curvy jersey dress could be the answer to many a “nothing to wear!” dilemma. If you can figure out how to fashion it, that is. There are instructions on the site, but kind of like all the articles telling us we could wear the same sarong every day of our vacation without anyone knowing, it might be easier read than done. It might take an evening at home practicing before you can master the seven different styles, but in great bright colors for spring, this dress might be worth the trouble. The best thing is that while it’s always sexy, you can make it appropriate for work, for a date, or the beach. That’s versatile.

Get Blair Waldorf’s Gossip Girl style with this Marc Jacobs dress

By Andrea Thatcher on November 30th, 2007


Turkey day may be over, but there’s still plenty of occasions left to wear Blair Waldorf’s Thanksgiving Day dress from this week’s Gossip Girl. Blair passed on turkey for pie anyway, right? While Blair’s maid suggested she wear this MARC by Marc Jacobs metallic dress “with pearls” we think it’s much more easily worn in an ecclectic, downtown, “I always wear Marc Jacobs dresses to the grocery store” way. It’s sold out right now, but I’ll bet with Blair’s blessing they’ll get more in.

By Andrea Thatcher on November 8th, 2007

Shiny Style has told you how much we love sequin dresses and sequin leggings, but we also love sequin miniskirts. Sequins are huge this fall as a quick way to create a nighttime-glam outfit and to turn heads as soon as you strut into that bar or party. Victoria’s Secret has a great sequin skirt for only $98, perfect paired with a crisp white button-down and black pumps.

By Andrea Thatcher on October 23rd, 2007

Designer pick of the week: Stella McCartney

By Andrea Thatcher on October 16th, 2007

At Paris Fashion Week, Stella McCartney showed her spring/summer collection. Full of easygoing flowing dresses in wildflower prints inspired by the ’70s, the models looked like the cast of the musical “Hair.” Her trademark jumpsuits also made an appearance, as well as pajama- and nightgown-inspired garments. The looks would be equally appropriate for an afternoon in the park or a Sunday lounging around in bed. The look above, worn by model Jessica Stam, is the epitome of the perfect spring frock.

Sweater dresses for fall from Celine to Design History

By Andrea Thatcher on September 28th, 2007

The sweater dress is a great transitional piece moving from fall into winter. Paired with opaque tights and heels, the look can be described best as sexy-warm. Body-hugging while still being covered up, the sweater dress is good for work or a night out. The gray dress above, worn by a model at the Hamptons Magazine hosted party in Southampton, is from Celine’s fall/winter 2007 collection. For a cheaper, but just as stylish sweater-dress, continue reading.

Duro Olowu collection at London fashion week

By Andrea Thatcher on September 26th, 2007

On Tuesday September 18th, British designer Duro Olowu showed his second-ever runway collection during London fashion week. The Nigerian-born designer created a collection of bell-sleeve trapeze dresses, gingham blouses, busy prints, ruffled necklines, and jade, jade, jade. The collection was pulled together nicely and very consistent, but the clashing prints on some items aren’t for everybody and it’s more likely the nicely tailored jackets and pants will sell to a wider audience.
