What’s New This Week at Life & Style? Couture in the City Fashion Blog
So what’s new this week at Life & Style magazine? Check out their front page for all the greatest gossip on baby news (is Nicole pregs or not? I’m skeptical…). Anywho, the hottest trend this week amongst celebs has to be light and airy sun dresses. Whether they are short and sweet or superlong, this is THE staple for the season. I don’t know about Gwen Stefani’s school girl ensemble though…it’s a little too dark and covered up for summer, don’tcha think?Leave it to SJP to turn a simple pair of jeans and a t-shirt into a chic summer ensemble! The former Carrie Bradshaw just added a pair of yellow heels and a bright pink tote to her casual look and VOILA!…instant style. I’m so jealous. Life & Style shows you how you can add some effortless color to your summer look with these bright combos.
Best of all, these trends won’t break your bank (that yellow tunic from H&M only costs $25!!!)I can’t believe my eyes…flip flops are in style! Well, this isn’t such a surprise really with the summer months upon us, but it’s nice to see this casual look get many trendy makeovers. Whether you want a luxe pair to wear with a breezy sun dress or just a casual pair for the beach, Life & Style tells you where to get the best selling pairs this summer.Who wears it best? Life & Style poses the question to you…and it’s not an easy task. These four looks are super trendy and Life & Style readers choose their favorites, so now you can too! While I think that all of these celebs pulled these looks off way better than I ever could, some did it better than others…I simply love the BCBG dress worn by Shaun Robinson and Sophia Bush…so cute! Keep checking in with Life & Style magazine for all the latest and greatest information about your favorite celebs, fashion and more!Labels: BCBG, fashion trends, flip flops, Gwen Stefani, H and M, Life and Style, Shaun Robinson, Sophia Bush, sun dresses

Designing Women, Couture in the City Fashion Blog
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen (source)Call it a monopoly on the fashion industry…Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are now appealing to almost everyone in the fashion world. Best known for their popular line of clothes for young girls and pre-teens at Wal-Mart (and of course for their long run on TGIF and for producing a gazillion movies and television shows for younger viewers), now their older big sisters’ can get a little taste of Olsen style too.Recently MK and Ash debuted a new line called Elizabeth and James, named after their younger siblings.
This line is said to be “more affordable” than Ashley’s other women’s line, The Row, which offers truly upscale ready to wear items. Elizabeth and James will be launched this fall at stores like Neiman Marcus, Intermix and Bergdorf Goodman, with t-shirts starting at around $40.While sometimes MK and Ash have questionable fashion taste for their own personal style (bag lady couture, goth vamp and trashy college student are only a few appropriate adjectives to describe their look),
I think that Elizabeth and James will be fabulous. When the Olsen twins first started to become more visible around 2003, they were fresh-faced and totally cute, so I know that deep down, they have good style, and maybe they are just trying to find themselves through fashion.So what do you think…will the Olsen’s foray into “affordable upscale fashion” be a success?Labels: Ashley Olsen, Fashion Designers, Mary Kate Olsen, Olsen Twins

The Seaton Flagship Store is Now Open, Couture in the City Fashion Blog
Have you ever fallen in love with a small shop or boutique while vacationing somewhere beautiful by the sea? The type of store you enter and immediately wish you could take home with you? Seaton is that store. But, for once, its in your own backyard.Introducing the Seaton Flagship store, a unique new concept in retail about to make its debut on Melrose and Almont. Owned by the husband and wife team of Mark Freeman and Jill Roberts (who also own the Jill Roberts boutiques), the concept for this new store is rooted in the duos fashion label, also named Seaton, a line known for its beachy, casual chic vibe. Unlike the couples other stores, Seaton will not be a fashion boutique, but rather a destination for a modern, inspirational and relaxed lifestyle one that celebrates the state of mind that comes from listening to an ocean crash or watching a beachside sunset.This mindset and aesthetic is carried through the entire Seaton boutique from the warm and inviting 1500 square foot retail space (reminiscent of a shop in a sophisticated resort town) to all of the lifestyle product categories the store will stock, including clothing, accessories, linens, pillows, books, glass wear and gifts. This unique charm is what allows Seaton to carve its own niche in the crowded marketplace, offering consumers a fresh new shopping experience.The Seaton Flagship location, which is located at 8920 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood (across from Maxfields), is the first of many Seaton locations that will open over the next few years.Store Hours:Monday through Saturday10 am to 6 pmStore Phone Number:310.550.1232Labels: Fashion, Shopping

It’s Electric, Couture in the City Fashion Blog
Cameron DiazKelly RipaChloe SevignyKatharine McPheeKate Hudson (source)Somewhere between robin’s egg and turquoise is electric blue, and celebs are flocking to this hue in a big way. An unusual color for summer, electric blue has become a staple with the Hollywood elite on the red carpet and on the streets. Whether it’s a daring halter dress like on Chloe Sevigny or a casual tunic like seen on Kate Hudson, there seems to be no limits to where this color can go.For me, there is something about this color that hearkens back to the late 1980’s and early 1990’s…it’s almost neon in nature. This used to be one of my favorite colors to wear in scrunchie and sock form, and I am pleased to see its’ return. This is actually a fabulous color for a variety of skin tones, and is especially great for showing of a summer glow.Think that an electric blue frock may be hard to find anywhere past Rodeo Drive? Think again…LeFashionista has you covered, and at a price tag way below what the celebs might pay. If you are eager to try out this trend, then check out Misile’s “Addressed to You” sun dress, now on sale. Cute a la carte, or with a pair of jeans, this is the perfect way to dip your toes in the electric blue water.Labels: Cameron Diaz, Chloe Sevigny, Dresses, Electric Blue, fashion trends, Kate Hudson, Katherine McPhee, Kelly Ripa, misile

What’s New at Life & Style? Couture in the City Fashion Blog
What’s new this week at Life & Style? You can bet that they have pin pointed the hottest trends that your stars are rockin’ this summer so you know what’s in. It is my happy duty to report that nautical stripes are still on trend, but you don’t have to limit yourself to navy blue. Vanessa Minillo was seen wearing a red and white striped tank with cut-off jean shorts and looks ready for the Fourth of July!Okay, so you have a hundred pairs of dangly earrings and four or five pairs of sunglasses (white frames from last season, classic Jackie O’s, avaitors, Wayfarers from this season) but maybe it has never dawned on you to make sure that your styles in eyewear and earwear match. Really, think about it…wayfarers with diamond drop earrings? I don’t think so. Life & Style shows you how celebs perferctly balance their bling and their UV protection which staying trendy and chic.Who got it right? Life & Style poses this question to show you just how versatile fashion really is. It always amazes me how two different celebs can put their own spin on a piece and make it look so different. This weeks’ standout to me was the red peep toe shoe face off between the ex-Mrs. Manson, Dita Von Teese, and Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham. To me, red peep toe heels with an ankle strap are just more appropriate on a 1940’s rockabilly burlesque dancer than a former pop star.Sunscreen, towel, impressively intelligent beach read…check, check and check! If you are heading out to catch some rays this summer, then don’t pass up the chance to get yourself a totally cute beach bag (and a cute cover up for that matter, for Pete’s sake Kiki Dunst, get rid of the flannel and use a pareo!). For me, it’s wicker and natural weave totes all the way…it’s just so reminiscent of the islands. Check out Life & Style for more info on where to get the hottest selling bags.The stars are coming out dressed to the nines to walk the red carpet at Cannes and Life & Style has picked the winners! Well, the most fashionable winners anyway…at Cannes, it seemed to be that a little bit of shimmer, a simple color and a great cut made for a fabulous frock. A standout among the crowd? Angelina Jolie’s yellow Emauel Ungaro dress is so fresh for summer, and a great change for Jolie, who usually opts for darker colors.Just when I was about to donate my denim skirt from a few years ago to charity…they’re baaack. Like almost every style in the revolving door of fashion, jean skirts are constantly on again and off again. While most stars like Reese Witherspoon are saving their jean skirts for running errands and casual daywear, Alexis Bledel wore hers to a charity event. Jean skirts are fun and easy for summer and can be paired with almost anything…like maybe a striped tank?If you have ever had the inner urge to be a Las Vegas showgirl, then now is the time to add a little piece of glitz to your wardrobe. While stars can get away with it on the red carpet, in real life a glitzy mini may not translate well. If you love the look but are hsitant, instead, try a cute glitzy clutch for evening. For more great celebrity fashion news and gossip, keep checking in with Life & Style!Labels: Alexis Bledel, Angelina Jolie, Cannes, Emanuel Ungaro, Life and Style, reese witherspoon, Vanessa Minillo
