Lipstick Jungle - Behind the Scenes

So Thursday February 7th 10/9c the much hyped Lipstick Jungle by the author of Sex and the City, will debut on NBC. The show follows the main characters; Movie Exec Wendy Healy, Editor-in-Chief Nico Reilly, and Fashion Designer Victory Ford through their trials and tribulations in NYC. Sound familiar? The termination of Sex and the City has left a gaping hole and face it we miss female drama, humility and the edgy fashion of the show. Will Lipstick Jungle be able to fill those minolo's? Watch next thursday and let me know what you think?

And to get you all ready for Fashion Week here is a debut video from the stylists at Lipstick Jungle.

Chinese Laundry Over The Knee Boots

Serena (Blake Lively) recently wore these Chinese Laundry Over the Knee Boots. They also come in brown and gray but I haven't been able to find the gray in stock anywhere. And the best part is they are only $99!

Project Runway Levi's Dress

So last week's Project Runway challenge was to design an iconic piece from old Levi's Jeans. The winner of the challenge is to have their item produced and sold in Levi stores. The winner was this dress by Ricky, and although I think it is Ricky's best design yet I wonder about the commercial viability of a dress this skimpy? Would you buy this dress?

Madewell 1937 Contest Winner

A few weeks ago I posted a contest to see who could pick out an item on the Madewell 1937 website and come up with the best outfit. The winning entry is by Nana. Here is what she had to say "My favorite item from the Madewell is "The Embellisher" jeweled necklace for $14.99. It's so chic and it's such a steal! It reminds me of Lanvin. I'd pair the necklace with a flirty mini dress by Rag&Bone for $515, some cute black tights from for $9.12, a bauble ring for $68.43 also from, the stunning "Zoe" Botkier clutch for $295 from, and finally a pair of Jimmy Choo "Spell" slingback boots for an indulgent $1200. I love this look because it's girly but a little edgy at the same time."

Project Runway Disappoints

I was very disappointed at this weeks Project Runway. I believe I actually swore at the TV and went to bed angry. Week after week Sweat Pea and Ricki struggle to put together interesting, coherent, well made pieces. And somehow they beat out Kevin in the Prom Dress Challenge? I mean really! Kevin has more talent in his little finger than these two put together. Any how, the good news for Kevin is his talent is apparent and he shouldn't have trouble finding work. But Project Runway...give us a break!

Plaid Inspiration

I was just in a great vintage clothing store in Manhattan and they had a large rack of wool plaid skirts. I bought a couple of plaid items last year but didn't get as much wear as I had hoped out of them. Here are some items that have lately re-inspired me. Jovovich Hawk Darla Dress $215 at Revolve Clothing and Victoria Secret High-Waist Flannel Skirt $69.00
