Trends: Shining Stars


Designers this season didn’t let the recession get the best of them. The runway looks were a cluster of festive spangles and sparkles such as Jason Wu, Halson, and Christian Siriano. Shimmering fabrics in rich metallic shades and lavish embellishment lift dressing (and spirits) to a whole new level.

With a trend that weighs no less than 24-carats, keep the accessories to minimal. Dare to wear metallics as daywear but go for the fitted, plain, and sophisticated pieces.

Keep an eye on our blog as these looks will be available at our store soon.

Wu-ing Us Again!

Jason Wu Dolls


From ready-to-wear to part-time doll designer, Jason Wu is just everywhere. His newest line of limited edition dolls for Madame Alexander are just lovely. Dressed in cute little dresses and shoes (I think I spotted a pair of Louboutins on Blu Belle), the dolls will retail from $160 – $350.

Their first debut will be at the American International Toy Fair on February 14, and they will hit stores in August. Who said dolls were for little girls??
