Olivia Palermo must be cowering in her cubicle right about now--Whitney Port's clothing line, Whitney Eve, is on a serious hot streak.

"Shorts are so versatile; pair them with heels and a blazer for a night out, or wear them with a comfortable pair of ballet flats.

While flat-chested girls may dream of fuller figures, the well-endowed among us sometimes view our curves as a curse. Aside from the unwanted hoots and hollers on the street, it can make getting dressed seriously difficult. Get a lesson in dressing your busty figure from Jessica Simpson, after the jump.Read More »from A Few Lessons In Dressing A Busty Figure, Courtesy Of Jessica Simpson
Lesson #1: Beware of spillover.
Jessica's body is undeniably gorgeous--petite, muscular, and curvy all at once--but you'd never know it from the looks of this strapless dress. Her cups runneth over; there simply isn't enough room in the top for her breasts, and the result is some very unflattering spillover. For a busty girl to wear a strapless neckline, she needs serious support (look for a dress with a built-in bra or boning) and plenty of room to create enviable--not smushed--cleavage.
Lesson #2: Don't bring extra attention to unflattering fit.
This is another example of a dress that doesn't have enough fabric to accommodate Jess's breasts--but she's taken it to a whole 'nother
If it's not unusual for you to think "What would Nicole Richie wear?" before getting dressed, you're truly in luck right now: First bags and now shoes with the ultimate bohemian detail, fringe, are popping up everywhere. Go forth and get groovy with these picks.

Try an open back dress for day
It's easy to get an "uh oh" feeling when you see an open back dress. What bra to wear with it-or go braless? The solution is never easy, but I think layering something underneath, like the button-accent tube-y thing here, makes it work. This is a great, casual way to rock an open back and I love it here with the platforms because it's sexy but still not overdone.
Layer stripes on stripes
This is chic, not clownish, thanks to the contrasting colors and different width thickness of the stripes. It's also a good example of how you can bring a strapless dress down-to-earth with the simple addition of a boyfriend sweater and a few choice accessories-nicely done!

Seems a few of us were suffering from sticker shock this morning when we learned that the Sex and the City 2 costumes are worth a whopping $10 million--but I was even more surprised to learn what the average woman's wardrobe is valued at.
Here's the deal with the study, as told by Stylelist: "Conducted by UK insurance company Sheila's Wheels, the survey of 3,000 adults found that a woman's daily ensemble costs on average $137 more than a man's. The total (cue cha-ching! sound effect) reportedly includes underwear, $39; a skirt, $44; top, $33; knitwear, $57; coat, $94; tights, $6; shoes, $75; watch, $112; and jewelry, $552. A woman's handbag, $155, and its contents--including a $155 mobile phone and cash, tickets, and passes amounting to $213--were also reportedly included, resulting in a grand total of $1,534.28." The survey also says that the value of an outfit can increase by $102 for special occasions.

I thought my jealousy of Sarah Jessica Parker's wardrobe had reached its apex last spring, when she had her twins and it was reported that she got to keep 70% of her wardrobe from the Sex and the City series days. I should have held out on my wish to raid her closet a little while longer, because it's about to have some fabulous new additions...Read More »from The SATC2 Wardrobe Cost A Reported $10 Million (And They Got To Keep The Clothes!)
According to the newest issue of In Touch Weekly, Carrie alone has 41 outfit changes in the soon-to-be-released Sex and the City 2, and celebrity stylist Phillip Bloch estimates all of the Halston, McQueen, and Dior pieces combined add up to a whopping $10 million. "Some of these pieces cost more than an SUV," he tells the magazine. "But they get better mileage!"

That old rule about not wearing white before Memorial Day or after Labor Day? It's pretty much been tossed out the window--but as warmer weather approaches, we've got three absolutely mandatory rules to take its place.
White is meant to look pure, crisp, and clean--even when you wear it in the middle of winter (which, yes! is totally acceptable: Get the lowdown on winter white here), the feeling you want to evoke is of fresh white snow. To avoid looking like a white hot mess, always keep these three essential rules in mind:
1. Wear nude undergarments. Nothing kills a look more quickly than an unsightly flash of skivvies peeking through the fabric. Bright red or pink thongs with white linen pants should be an obvious no-no, but white bras and panties are just as offensive--their blindingly bright presence is totally obvious beneath thin summer fabrics. Choose an undergarment that matches your skin tone as closely as possible, and it'll blend seamlessly into your outfit.

The only thing more ridiculous than wandering the streets of Manhattan in a pink tulle tutu just may be strutting through the sandy deserts of Abu Dhabi in six-inch stilettos. And that, my dears, is why I will always love Carrie Bradshaw.

Even hopelessly devoted Slaves to Fashion need a break from their Louboutins every once in a while, right? That's where TOMS Shoes come in: The groundbreaking company built on one simple idea (for every pair of shoes purchased, a new pair is given to a child in need) is asking people all across the world to go barefoot tomorrow.Read More »from Go Barefoot For A Cause: Help TOMS Celebrate One Day Without Shoes Tomorrow!
In many parts of the world, poor children are forced to walk miles to school or to get food and water, and they're exposed to dangerous diseases via the soles of their feet--easily prevented by a simple pair of shoes. TOMS Shoes aims to get every child in need properly shod, and to help bring attention to this important cause, they're hosting their third annual "One Day Without Shoes" campaign. People all over the world will slip out of their stilettos and sneakers to try and understand, for just one day, what it feels like to go barefoot.

If you had an extra $1.5 million burning a hole in your pocket, what would you spend it on? A couple of four-bedroom houses? A no-expense-spared trip around the world? Educational scholarships for an entire graduating class in need? A fleet of Aston Martins? Or how about...one dress?
Yes ladies, believe it or not, a dress worth a whopping $1.5 million is set to make its debut on the runway this weekend at Miami International Fashion Week. According to a press release we recently received, the Danasha Luxury Gown, created by "the Middle East's most famous designer," Jad Ghandour, will grace the back of a yet-to-be-named celebrity on the catwalk this Saturday. They're calling it "the most elite gown on earth," thanks to diamonds from Antwerp that have been hand set in 18 karat gold.
"Our aim wasn't to just throw diamonds and gold together and call it a 'diamond gown'" the design team says in the statement. "We wanted to create a masterpiece - a gown that would highlight the finestRead More »from A Yet-To-Be-Named Celeb Debuts The $1.5 Million Dress At Miami Fashion Week
