Trend We Loved: The Printed Dress. Find Out How To Pick The Perfect One For You & Style It!

First, Pick Out a Printed Dress. So Cute!

If you're into graphic prints:

Love having all eyes on you at work? Go with these bold but polished dresses--then wear them out at night!

If you're into daring prints:

Trippy, right? Part artsy, part sci-fi, these vivid designs are great for formal nights out, like weddings. And if you upstage the bride? Oh, well!

If You're into romantic prints:

These darling styles can be worn sweetly with sandals, or ironically--bring on the biker jacket and boots!


Your Rules for Wearing Prints - Easy Tips For A Tricky Trend

1. DO wear big prints where your body is smaller, and smaller prints where you're bigger, to even out your curves.

2. DO mix your prints but not your type of print. Stick with one of the categories above, and make sure your pieces have at least one color in common.

3. DO pick solid accessories so you don't have to take an Excedrin just to look in the mirror.

A box-heeled platform sandal

It's Time To Plan Your Schedule For Fashion's Night Out (via GlamChic)!

With Fashion Week right around the corner, it’s time to start organizing a game plan for the always legendary Fashion’s Night Out! Now in its fourth year, the shopping and celebrity studded event is sure to be the best yet, so get out that planner and map your route to make the most of fashion’s biggest night on September 6th. Here are 10 Glam approved events which are not to be missed.


It’s all about Alice this year at Chloe, as the luxury house chose the evening to launch their newest iconic handbag. With speciality Alice cocktails and celebratory window designs, Chloe’s Alice is set to take center stage.

Diane von Furstenberg

It’s no secret that a Girls obsession has taken over the twenty-something generation. This year, DVF is employing Allison Williams and Vogue’s Meredith Melling Burke as hosts for an evening of styling, fortune telling and tunes by Solange Knowles.

Henri Bendel

The iconic relator is getting theatrical this year, thanks to the talent of Cirque du Soleil’s Zumanity! Swarovki goodies like encrusted FNO tshirts and special iPhone cases will be available for sale while famed fashion illustrator Izak Zenou signs prints of his famous Bendel girl prints!


It’s no secret that fashion has a major crush on the ever so talented Alber Elbaz. This year for Fashion’s Night Out, he’s bringing not only his design talent to the table but also his sketching abilities. Guests will have the chance to purchase special Lanvin / FNO products like iPad cases and tshirts adorned with Alber’s whimsical sketches!

M.A.C. Cosmetics

Azealia Banks has stolen the hearts of music lovers and fashion insiders. Thanks to MAC, she’ll be bringing her songstress skills to the evening with a special performance at the SoHo store!


From SkinnyGirl creations with Bethenny Frankel to  fashion trivia with designer Michael Kors, Macy’s has an entire evening planned on multiple floors. The best part? It’s all topped off with a celebration of their brand new, huge shoe floor!


Rachel Zoe fans – this event is just for you! The stylist will be toasting to Piperlime’s very first store during Fashion’s Night Out, while doling out her spot on fashion advice to guests.


It’s all about the accessories at Saks this year. Minx Nails and Suno paired up to create nail designs, Kim Ovitz is working with Rihanna‘s tattoo artist Josh Lord of East Side Ink for custom designs to be painted on guests, and Erin Fetherston‘s hair stylist will be bringing her signature bang talent!


For one night only, lucky Target will open a pop up shop featuring the newest group of The Shops at Target. NYC shoppers will have the chance to scoop up new offerings from Kirna Zabete, Odin, Patch NYC, and The Curiosity Shop!

Victoria's Secret

Make it an angelic evening with Victoria’s Secret’s very own, Alessandra Ambrosio. Indulge in makeovers with the VS beauty team, followed by photos with the supermodel!

Shop CUSP.com & Enter To Win A $1,000 Designer Shopping Spree!

From now until 2/2010, you can enter to win a $1,000 shopping spree at CUSP!

Do you know what you would get from Neiman Marcus' hip little sister store with $1,000? I've searched their Party Shop, Boyfriend Dressing and All-In-One Pieces to find my ultimate wish list. A sexy look that'll be perfect for an upcoming event I would ordinarily be dreading (the eleventh wedding I've been invited to this year!)











Ok, I might have gone a wee-bit over $1,000. But, it's definitely not my fault... Everything is so fabulous! I'm crosing my fingers that one of us wins this. Good luck!
