Gisele is playing a huge role in the fashion scene lately and has completely broken out of her Angel stereotype. I was apprehensive at first, but this spread Numero Tokyo's June issue is gorgeous. Please note her amazing heels! The lace tight mini is gorgeous, but those shoes are the scene stealer!
Also, I now have a second home at http://gossiplessfashion.onsugar.com/...dont worry though, the posts will keep happening at each location!
I am already such a fan of Tracy Feith's line for Target! Her line is very mod, but I'm loving the bright floral patterns and 60's inspiration. And of course the line is not complete without the adorable garden dress. My favorite of this first look? I would have to go with the black and white zip up dress, but the yellow and red print mini is a close second. So on May 17th, race to your Target to pick up a few of these cute items, because I have a feeling they will be selling fast! And is it just me, or has Allie Crandell been everywhere since The City ended? Thoughts?

MK looking amazing at the Matthew Williamson for H&M Spring 2009 collection in NYC. I love the bright pop of the purple against the black one shouldered dress, and the thick studded belt is the perfect touch. What I would give to raid her closet once in my life....

A little while ago I blogged about Lauren Moshi's line, which I still absolutely love. But if you don't feel like spending over a hundred dollars on a tunic, Forever 21 just came out with some look a like tops which I think are pretty cute, and they are only $15.80! I am personally loving the feathered one. Perfect for the summer!

Ever since I saw her perform live at the MTV Woodies rocking black sparkling full length leggings and a long gray tunic (not to mention her back up singers were clothed in great boho ensembles), I have loved this talented girl for her great style and amazing stage presence, and now she's in the latest Swedish Elle. She is truly one of the greatest integrators of fashion and art, and I'm so happy she's getting great recognition! If you haven't checked out her music yet, you MUST! enjoy!

Happy Earth Day everyone! Take a minute today to turn off the lights you aren't using, turn off the TV, or walk/bike instead of driving. Remember, our Earth will only last as long as we do our part. And while you are sitting in the dark, enjoy these beautiful Marc Jacobs bags for Fall 2009!

Ok so I know I'm going a little post crazy right now but my week last week was so crazy I totally neglected this blog and now I'm finding too many amazing things! Right now I'm so in love with Rebecca Minkoff's bag line. Pricey, yes. Incredible, absolutely. And I've found my next bag purchase to add to the ever growing list. This first bag is called The Clutch with Chain Strap, and its also available in patent black. And I'm obsessed! The color, the bag, the clasp, the chain...perfection in a bag. I am also loving the Morning After Mini in jewel purple (my current favorite color!) The Clutch with Chain Strap is going for $330 and the Morning After Mini is going for $595. Splurge a little!
I couldn't resist this spread from German Vogue with the beautiful brown leather corset. I think this is a trend that does not need to stay in the past. And a cowboy hat with a gown that turns into something resembling a poncho at the ends. LOVE.
Gisele looking very chic with overstated accessories and overdone hair. There is nothing understated about this work, so how does she pull it off so well? The fringe top with MC Hammer like gold pants? Who would have thought mixing western and an MC's style would be pulled off so well? Pushing the boundaries...and we like.

Head to Net-a-porter's new site theoutnet.com for some great deals! I love this new trend of discounted designer sales! They have great finds, including a Jimmy Choo bag I blogged about some time ago!! Still not happening though, but its fun to look!

I can't remember the last time I saw a collection that was so impressive overall as Rebecca Taylor's garb for summer. The first piece that caught my eye TWICE was the top pink strapless dress, which I saw at two different boutiques and couldn't resist trying on, even though it was sadly out of my price range. It fits beautifully and the color makes it the perfect dress for summer. If the floral jumpsuit, or playsuit as her collection deems it, looks a little too floral for you, throw a brown woven belt on and tan wedges and you have the most adorable outfit for any day in the spring or summer! Do I actually fear wearing jumpsuits? YES. But this one actually makes me completely disregard my fear, because I think anyone could pull it off. And I think the bottom two pieces absolutely speak for themselves as to why they should be in everyones wardrobe. However, before you get your heart too set on all these beauties, understand that Rebecca Taylor isn't wallet friendly.

Because I'm home for Easter, I have been hitting up the local boutiques at home that I LOVE and found this Haute Hippie dress that I fell so in love with. The frills on the bottom are so flirty and create such a more dramatic feel to this cotton dress, but the cotton top makes the dress just casual enough to be able to wear in so many different ways. I love how it starts as a simple V neck shirt and becomes this gorgeous sex and the cityesque dress, perfect for the summer! I found this one at a shop called M in Corte Madera California, but you can find it also at shopbop for $325.

Christian Louboutin shoes go on sale tomorrow at noon on GILT. This could be the most exciting sale GILT has yet to offer! I'm not sure exactly what shoes will be up for sale, but any discount on Louboutins is well worth the wallet hit! Make sure you are signed up for GILT! If you are not, email me or comment here and I will invite you! Gilt may be dangerous, but it is also a great way to add to your wardrobe for less!

The beautiful and diverse shoe selection of the new Topshop store in NYC. However, I am a little scared that this may become the next Forever 21, with ridiculous lines only for dressing rooms and packed crowds every single day...lets hope Topshop doesn't follow the Forever trend!

While browsing through this show, I couldn't help but think debutante meets...morning after? And it works perfectly. Its effortlessly grungy meets elegant, and I couldn't be a bigger fan. This collection seems to have perfectly combined every trend, from slim belts to socks with heels to animal prints to the layered look, not to mention they perfected the look of paired baggy hats with ball gowns, something no one other designer would even think of, but that's why we love Dsquared right? Not to mention they are paying tribute to every working woman out there with their addition of Starbucks cup and blackberry in hand.
update: one of NY mag's blogs panned this collection for being to reminiscent of the Olsens. What do you think?

Here is a snippet of Kate Moss's new promotion for Topshop. I am so excited about the opening of the Topshop store in NYC!! This gives me yet another excuse for needing a weekend getaway there! And she's not only a spokesperson for them, but she also has a had a strong hand in designing for them as well. Kate Moss...model/designer? Who would have thought it?

Finally, affordable accessories, and you can find them all at URBAN! Except for the bags, sorry they were just too cute to not post though!
Sabina Dakota Tote $245 (Brown)
UO Metal Knot Necklace $78 (Gold)
Mixed Media Necklace $38
Sabina O Ring Satchel $298 (Blue)
Blue Skinny Leather Belt $20
I love the skinny blue leather belt, and its also available in pink, brown and black, the perfect and versatile spring accessory!
I'm on a serious shoe kick, and this pair has moved to the top of my list. They are by Topshop, and are unfortunately $170. Not bad, but I am currently on the starving student budget and with the recent Hunter rainboot purchase(I couldn't resist...but sadly I don't mean the Jimmy Choo & Hunter rainboot), these boots are going to have to wait. But can't you just see how cute they would be with skinnies, a white tank and a cropped vest? Or with a casual blouse....oh the possibilities.....
I never thought I would be excited for April showers, but these Jimmy Choo and Hunter rainboots are too delicious to not do a daily rain dance. I fell in love the second I turned to the last page in Vogue and saw these beauties. They are shown in Vogue in brown, which I like better than the black, but I would be equally happy if I had either pair. However, at $395 a pair, I'm guessing I won't be one of the super chic jumping puddles in Jimmy Choos...sigh. Someone tell me I'm not the only one swooning.
