It's 2:30am and after spending the past few hours editing 3 articles back to back, exhaustion steps in. In spite of the fatigue, I have one more thing to do that I'm positive will bring me some much needed late night / early morning rejuvenation - I have a date with The Sartorialist.

Antonio Berardi is known for putting an interesting twist on trends whether it's with mixing fabrics or creating interesting colors. Most runway looks never make it into production or on the red carpet. The idea is to create fantasy during a show and most people lean towards practicality in real life. Needless to say, it's always fantastic to see celebrities like Rihanna take fashion risks on the carpet instead of going for cookie cutter looks.

Check out today's style pick - TGIF - Going casual in a shirt-dress.
There are days that even the most fashion savvy individuals don't have the time to put things together. On these days, it's all about something effortless, quick and chic and that's where the shirt-dress comes in. A perfect weekend look, it's short, comfortable and sweet. Dressing it up is as easy as adding some heels (see test driving the trend photo below) or you can keep things simple with some thong sandals. Stars like Cameron Diaz, Alessandra Ambrosio and Reese Witherspoon all love the appeal of the shirt-dress. Simply put, it's easiness and simplicity is irresistible.Model, Alessandra Ambrosio and Reese Witherspoon sport their favorite shirt-dresses Ciara takes comfort to the red carpet in a white t-shirt dress
Test driving the trend - I've always kept a shirt-dress in my wardrobe for those casual days. I like it in a neutral color like gray because it stays the same no matter how many times you wash it. Living in Los Angeles, it also works well during the fall months. I just pair it with some funky stockings - either textured or with a fun print like polka dots. I complete my look with a scarf and some bootiesRead More »from TGIF – Going casual chic in a shirt-dress
Wide leg pants have been elongating legs since the 70s. There's an effortless "chic" about this style that allows women to look elegant without sacrificing any of their femininity. Part of the perks of this cut is that it makes you feel tall and lean. Stars like Elle McPherson, Jessica Alba, Penelope Cruz, January Jones and Katie Holmes who all range from super petite to super tall have all rocked this style. This shows that most women can get away with it, it's just about finding the right material, length, width and fit.
- Even pregnant women can look fabulous in this cut. Jessica Alba looked uber chic while running errands in wide leg jeans and a blazer.
- Clearly the cut works for her - Here's Holmes again in wide leg jeans and an embellished Isabel Marant jacket.
This cut has also been incorporated into one of summer's hottest trends - jumpsuits.
Keep in mind - There is such a thing as too much fabric and too much width especially if you're petite. This cut like I mentioned earlier is meant to make you taller and leaner, not shrink you. Hilary Duff's look below isRead More »from Trend spotting - Going 70s chic in wide leg pants
