The Beauty of Politics: Stila and Rock the Vote

It's an election year and while I am concerned about the the environment, the war, and the state of the economy, it's hard to ignore the sartorial style (or lack thereof) on the campaign trail. Hey, don't judge me--even Tim Gunn has sounded off about this very subject! (He chose Michelle...a wise choice if you ask me.) But what's fashion without beauty?

Since the two go hand in hand it's not surprising that makeup artist extraordinaire Bobbi Brown has been tapped to beautify Jill Biden for her husband Joe's acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention. And why shouldn't Stila Cosmetics jump on board and team up with the Rock the Vote campaign to create Rock the Vote Red ($17), the most delicious true red lipstick I've ever seen? And while they're at it, why not donate a portion of Rock the Vote Red sales to the campaign of the same name? It's the politically correct thing to do.


$12 Denim at Old Navy

I've got a wedding tomorrow and have yet to find anything for my honey to wear. Plus, my hair dresser won't be in the shop, which means I've got to figure out something to do with this head of mine. But with all that's going on, I will find time at some point in the day to hit up an Old Navy for their $12 denim sale. I know, I know...I hardly ever wear jeans, but when they're just $12 who can pass them up?!!

Save on Old Navy's most flattering styles: The Diva (their lowest rise); The Sweetheart (classic rise); The Goddess (high rise); and The Flirt (mid-rise). The sale is one0-day only (August 23rd) so don't miss it!


Let Tiffany & Co. Host Your Poker Night

Only Tiffany & Co. could come up with what is possibly the most fabulous deck of cards to ever be played on poker night.

The ever-so-chic Tiffany & Co. Playing Cards could make even the rowdiest bunch toss out the cigars and cheap beer for champagne and caviar. They come in Tiffany blue and pink with a chocolate brown border, or a Tiffany blue and pink argyle-inspired print, all nestled in a Tiffany blue box. They make a great gift, and at $30 you can actually afford to give them to someone, no bluffing!


James Perse Beach Cruiser?

In a quite drastic departure from fashion (i.e. in the conventional sense), namely his signature, so-soft knits, James Perse has designed a custom beach cruiser...as in the bike.

The James Perse Cruiser features a hand-aged leather seat and grips, extra-large aluminum sprocket, a Hydroform steel frame, and lots more groovy details. Plus it comes in four sleek colors: choose from Matte Black, Dark Orange (shown), Khaki Green, and Antique White. There's a limited supply and they're only available at James Perse boutiques, so if you can afford the $2,200 price tag, hurry down and get one!


Le Sac Dress from American Apparel

Who would of thought that the most covetable dress of the season would be a mere $38! This fall, ditch the DVF and forget the Foley + Corinna because American Apparel has just launched Le Sac Dress, an incredibly versatile, entirely chic little frock than can be worn in more ways than one!

Le Sac Dress features a drape-y silhouette and one-size-fits-all, super-long (150 inches) straps that can wrapped, tied, crissed, and crossed in multiple ways to create unique looks for day or night. Plus, the straps are actually removable, so you can replace them with colorful or printed ribbon to really customize the look.
The dress is currently available in five cool colors, but Le Sac Dress will be available in a wider range of hues soon. Check out American Apparel to purchase Le Sac Dress and find step-by-step photos of ways to wear it.


Love the Look: Beyonce

Mrs. Carter really travels in style! The lovely songbird donned a 3.1 Philip Lim blouse with skinny jeans and YSL pumps to her departing flight out of LAX.


Victoria's Secret: Sweet and Sexy Sweaters Under $75

Now is the perfect time to stock up on so-stylish, so-affordable sweaters for fall, and Victoria's Secret has a fantastic selection. Check out these Style Goodies faves:

The sexy open back of this silk/cashmere blend sweater keeps the girly bow from being too precious -- an ideal balance of seductive and sweet. Pair with a flouncy skirt and booties for fall.

If you only get one sweater this fall make sure it's this one! Works as a cool layering piece or as a chic little dress.

This belted sweater is a great companion for jeans and boots or a skirt and oxford heels. Puffed sleeves feminize the rich hunter green hue.

A wrap is the perfect layering piece for fall. Toss this one in your bag and pull it out when you catch a chill at the movies, in restaurants, or at the office.

I love the idea of wearing this sweater out for drinks with my girls -- rhinestones make it appealingly festive and the open back is insanely sexy!

This sweater has a collegiate vibe to it that is surprisingly versatile! It's a fresh addition to trousers for the office or a sweet knit dress on the weekends.


Sean Combs: I Am King

Leave it to P. Diddy to dub his new men's fragrance I Am King (the backup dancer-turned-music producer-turned-media mogul has never been shy about expressing his love and affection for himself)! The follow-up to his wildly successful Unforgiveable scent, I Am King is "about sophistication...elegance...simplicity" says Combs.

I Am King, which is available exclusively at Macy's starting in December and other department stores in February, opens up with citrusy notes of tangerine and orange, then leads to a cool middle of champagne, creme de cassis, and Mediterranean water accord, and finishes sweet and musky with lemon cream, cedarwood, white moss, sandalwood and clean powdery undertones.

The I Am King collection includes eau de toilette, after-shave balm, shower gel, and deodorant, with prices ranging from $18 to $74, so you can easily afford to get your king a gift set for the holidays. I'm sure he'll return the favor come fall of 2009, when the I Am Queen fragrance is set to launch.


Ralph Lauren Rocks the Olympics

Fashion and sports collided in Bejing at Friday night's 29th Summer Olympics Opening Ceremony when the U.S. Team marched out in head-to-toe Polo Ralph Lauren. The look was classic Ralph Lauren -- crisp, unfussy silhouettes in shades of red, white, and navy blue. The nautical look was topped off with a cool, white twill hat. Go Team USA!
