Someone needs to tell Vanessa that a cell phone is best used for phone calls, not naked pictures for Zach!  Anyway, while most are concentrating on her racy photos, I prefer to highlight Vanessa’s other attributes; namely her style.  Get Vanessa’s look for less (compare Vanessa’s $300 shoes to Chinese Laundry’s “Bounty” for only $129!).

Erika Hendrix: Clothes and Accessories for Unique and Stylish People

August 5, 2009 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

I was looking through Erika’s Fall line (see below) and fell in love this adorable high-waist tulip skirt with pockets (I’m a sucker for pockets!).  I immediately envisioned the striped skirt with wedges, a simple tank and a cropped denim jacket.

That’s what I love about Erika’s designs: each piece is casual and chic with just the right amount of “classic” to dress up or down.

Erika integrates femininity and tomboyish looks into her designs, and offers a wide array of skirts, dresses, hooded sweaters, and accessories. 

 

The incredibly talented designer behind the Erika Hendrix line is Erika Bates, who hails from Manheim, Germany.  the new collection, entitled “A FashionTale,” drops on August 5, 2009.  Erika managed to snag the season two runner-up of Germany’s Next Top Model, Anni Wendler, for the promotional campaign. Prices range from 35-140EUR, which translates into $49-196 USD. Shipping is available worldwide via her website www.erikahendrix.com, and pre-sale orders are currently available for the fall/winter collection on her website as well.

 

Some of my favorites from the Erika Hendrix Fall line below.

Cross Your Heart

The following is guest post by Erika from Cafe Fashionista:  Believe me when I tell you this…you do not have to resort to the use of a frumpy fanny pack when you want a bag that features a functional flair. No dearests, just because you need a bag that is utilitarian does not mean it must possess every factor that makes up the u word…ugly. For practical use in terms of handbags, the most perfect solution is…the cross body. It’s a stylish little carryall that keeps your belongings close and your wardrobe looking just as upscale as it would should you be carrying a satchel; especially when you have the right one slung about you.

Fred Flare “Mini Weave Townie Purse” I hope you’re wearing your preppy best, mes chers, for that is exactly what the Mini Weave Townie Purse calls for, what with its sophisticated camel coloring, woven detail, and antique slip lock closure. It’s a cross body that seemingly screams Ivy League; thus, you must accommodate it accordingly with boyish blazers, collared tops, and perhaps a splash of khaki or two. Faux leather with a buckled strap that adjusts to your liking, and the bearer of a slight cell phone pocket, there’s an element of saddle-inspired glory here that will make the timid equestrian inside of you bubble with glee. Giddy up, darlings! 

Picture 2Topshop “Wooden Bead Cross Body Bag”When I saw the filmAlmost Famous, I fell in love with the wild-haired Penny Lane, a band-aid with a fabulous sense of style, and a dream of visiting Morocco. Perhaps it is her influence that has not only made me obsessed with the African city, but convinced that someday I will visit the exotic locale. Until that day, I am quite content with adorning my daily ensembles with Moroccan inspiration; in kind, thisWooden Bead Cross Body Bag is the perfect accessory to add to my collection. The bag is polyester, but the colorful beads covering its surface make it splendrous enough for a princess. I can see it now…walking through dirt-covered passageways as I peek into the booths of outdoor marketplaces selling all sorts of colorful wares, the Wooden Bead Cross Body Bag slung over my shoulder. Yes, it is the prime accent to accompany tropical dreams.

Fossil “Fifty-Four Molly Studded Crossbody”Polished studs. Tassels. Drawstring upper. A keychain with a large skeleton key dangling to and fro. If it hasn’t hit you already, theFifty-Four Molly Studded Crossbody? Quite frankly, it’s a prime example of a fashionable crossbody bag. The muted mustard color makes it a neutral with a pop; while the silver hardware, shiny studs, and drawstring top are the quintessential additions that make this low-key look come across as very high fashion. Whether it’s a spa day with the girls or a trip to the mall, the Fifty-Four Molly Studded Crossbody covers it all. 

Picture 50Urban Outfitters “Urban Renewal Remade Leather Cinch Bag” There’s no better way to remain eco-friendly than by recycling, which is exactly how the Urban Renewal Remade Leather Cinch Bag was created. Now, it looks like a trendy little treat with an odd, yet completely chic shape; but in a past life it was a vintage leather skirt worn for nights of dancing. Trimmed with cinched detailing, and home to an interior pocket kept hidden via a zippered closure, each Urban Renewal Remade Leather Cinch Bag arrives looking slightly different than the last, while retaining the same classy silhouette that keeps passersby in awe. Unique and useful…what more could you possibly ask for?

Charlotte Russe “Peace Sign Cross-Body Purse”Sometimes the best way to get a message across is via unspoken words. And nothing speaks louder than this Peace Sign Cross-Body Purse. The brown, crinkled faux leather adds a very worn yet wondrous look to the whipstitched, tassel-embellished artistry; while the studded peace sign emblazoned upon the fold-over flap casts just the right amount of glitz and glamour upon the boho beauty. Tossed over a flowy dress with dusty boots and you’re bound to be the belle of the bohemian ball! 

Have you crossed your heart yet? 

Fashionably yours!

One of the Hottest Fashion Colors for Fall: Purple

August 4, 2009 by  
Filed under Fashion Tips & Finds

The following is a guest post from the Wishpot Team:  Fall is right around the corner. Stores have filled their shelves and tables with all the hot new colors. One of my favorite fall trends is purple! Look at all the fun fashion I added to my wish list.

purple-1

Alice + Olivia ballerina bodysuit combines not only the color trend of purple but incorporates flowers, which is another hot trend for fall. You can dress it up with heels (left top; Vidaurri style), found on Aldoshoes.com or dress it down with a pair of flats.

No matter what the season handbags are always necessary. This Juicy Couture bag brings out the dark purple found in the dress. With the size you can fit all your essentials with room to spare.

What outfit is complete without a great necklace? The cut of the dress is perfect for a long necklace. Forever 21, a great place to find budget friendly accessories to fit any style you are wearing, I found this Amanda Charm necklace.

All of these items can be found on my wish list on wishpot.com.

One Forever21 Floral Cutout Shift Dress, 3 Different Looks

The following is a guest post by Sydne from thinkthrufashion:  

Picture 27This cotton floral cutout shift dress was one of those Forever 21 finds that I could not believe was under 30 bucks. Doesn’t it look more like it cost $100? So even though it was a tad big on me I had to have it. I actually like the looser fit for summer since it keeps me cool. I wore look #1 to work recently and got beaucoup compliments but my favorite way to wear this dress is how I styled it in look #2. The shapeless fit and the statement necklace have a retro 60s vibe.

1. Forever 21 cardigan, Ann Taylor belt, vintage brooch, Forever 21 studded sandals
2. Forever 21 necklace, lia sophia bracelet, Manolo Blahnik d’Orsays
3. Gap jean jacket, Urban Outfitters locket necklace, Nocona boots
