Opening Ceremony and Betsey Johnson have teamed up to bring back some of Betsey Johnson's greatest hits from the early eighties. They even had the original fabrics replicated. Here are a few of my favorites.

The fall collection for Kate Moss at Topshop launches tomorrow online. Don't miss the chance to order on-line before the collection is even available in-stores. Steal this look: There is something very rocker-chick about the way they have paired the long sweater with the nylons with runs in them.

I recently had to purchase a new pair of prescription eye glasses. Although my vision is not too bad, my eyes start to hurt after looking at the computer for long periods of time. I visited my local eye glass shop and had my eyes tested and sure enough, they recommended I purchase some perscription glasses. I ended up walking out of the store spending $400. I couldn’t believe how expensive the selection of glasses had been.
I have recently been turned on to a great online resource EyeBuyDirect.com for prescription eyeglasses. Glass frames start as low as $7.95. And they have some great designer eyeglasses and sunglasses including frames by Calvin Klein, Emporio Armani, and Guess. Everything on the site is deeply discounted and affordable so now you don’t have to stress about replacing your old glasses or upgrading to new ones.
Styles shown: GUESS GU1385 – Burgundy $79.95, Eta - Black./Clear $34.95

Wish Boutique has introduced a new French skincare collection called Rose Radiance BY TERRY. This line combines the rose, rosebuds and rose essence in the ingredients to create: a cream, gel, masque and lotion. The products are affordable starting around $40 and the product line includes: Comforting Cleansing Cream, Refreshing Cleansing Gel, Radiance Renewing Masque and Hydra-Toning Lotion. I was lucky enough to get to try these amazing products. They are so luxurious and leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated. The light rose scent smells just like a fresh bouquet of garden picked roses. It has been a special aromatherapy treat for me using these products to cleanse my skin before bed the last few weeks.
