New Stuff and Sale Stuff: Max Studio

I have recently been shopping a lot more at Max Studio. At first I thought their color palettes might be too sub-dued for me. But lately I have been finding a lot of great staples there. Here are few I found online lately. Textured Leather Wedges $149, Kimono Top $38 (Reg. $98) and Shirring Jacket $71 (Reg. 238).

Best Emmy Dress

So I picked my two favorite Emmy red carpet dresses. Evangeline Lilly (from Lost) Versace strapless dress - love the color on her! Heidi Klum (from Project Runway) in Michael Kors. Although Heidi looks great I wish she would have had one of the winners from Project Runway design her dress (as she has done in other events). I am kind of sick of the same old designer names walking down the red carpet. Which one do you like best?

Splurge vs. Steal: Platform Patent Leather

These shoes have been springing up everywhere. The platform pump is amazingly stylish and the platform adds a little extra comfort. I like the mix of the two materials, the cork heel and the shiny patent leather. You can find these shoes in a large price range - I think I saw a similar Gucci pair for $435. The two pictured here Splurge: Anne Klein $175 at Bloomingdales and Steal: Urban Outfitters $68.

Celebrity Clothing Line L.A.M.B.

Of all of the celebrity clothing lines popping up the L.A.M.B. clothing line by Gwen Stefani stands apart. Channeling her rocker persona into these funky clothing designs is pure genius. I especially love her fall collection which seems more wearable and less hollywood. Plaid dresses (red $565) and (grey $365) pictured below available at shopbop.
