Stylish Book Review: Kardashian Konfidential

As most people obsessed with pop culture, the name Kardashian is practically a household name! With their successful show on E! "Keeping Up With The Kardashian" and "Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami" the Kardashian sisters are the it girls right now! They are also successful business owners, Dash Calabasas, Miami, and the newest location New York are incredibly successful boutiques! While the list goes on forever on what these sister's do on a daily basis, it was only time for them to add authors to their growing list of business ventures.  
Their first book "Kardashian Konfidential" is an "konfessional" on everything from fashion, to beauty, to lifestyle and a closer look into their everyday lives. This book is incredible will full color photos of the sisters and gives a better understanding of who Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe really are as individuals! I pre-orderd this book on Amazon and haven't out it down since I received it last Wednesday. With its bright pink cover, its the perfect addition to your coffee table reads! You can purchase this book on Amazon and is a must have this holiday season! Follow the sisters on Twitter as they are in sync with social media!

Stylish Cyber Monday


Happy Monday stylelistas! Hope you all had a stylish turkey weekend! If you are an avid online shopper like myself, you know that today is Cyber Monday. As if I wasn't already addicted to online shopping as it is, today is the day to actually celebrate it! I can sit at my computer with Starbucks in hand and shop away instead of getting trampled over by crazy people in the malls ( not even joking, it happened this weekend)! This is much more my style! 

Last year I got some amazing boots via Piperlime and suggested by Rachel Zoe for so cheap it was insane! This year isn't any different as most of our favorite online retailers are offering some type of special for Cyber Monday! While I can't list EVERY single deal happening, my internship site I write for, BellaVita Style has compiled a list of some of the deals available to shoppers. 

I will be shopping the web during class tomorrow to find all my loved ones Christmas gifts and save a little money while I am it! I am hearing Amazon is having some AMAZING specials for tomorrow! I will definitely update you tomorrow on the deals I have found!

Stylish Black Denim

This fall I am OBSESSED with black denim! I bought a pair back in February but never wore them because I never knew what I could pair them with. When I started working at Free People I noticed that black denim was extremely popular so I decided to break out my pair and wear them. This past Monday WhoWhatWear featured a post on how to wear black denim and I was super excited to see new pairs of black denim. I now own a pair of Free People black denim jeans and a pair of Genetic black denim pants that I love! I pair mine with a cute top and either boots or flats but you can dress them up or down they are very versatile! I have chosen some of my favorite black denim choices below!
Free People ( I own these and LOVE them!)

Stylish Red Carpet: 2010 American Music Awards

Sunday night was the American Music Awards and while music is one my passions next to writing and fashion, I was so excited to see all my favorite music stars perform and attend this amazing awards show! What I love about this awards show is that is completely determined by the fans which makes it really a true award show! While of course this show was all about the music ( did you see the Backstreet Boys and NKOTB collaboration OMG) the fashion was just as incredible! Here are some of my favorite looks from this year's show!
For the first in a long time Katy Perry looked elegant in this Badgley Mischka gown (straight off the runway, impressive Katy!)
For being preggers, Pink looks GORGEOUS in this Janey Loptay gown and CC Skye earrings
Taylor Swift looks so mature with her straight hair and Collette Dinnigan gown!
While Whitney Port not be in the music biz, she looks stunning in this Rafael Cennamo one shoulder dress!

And for the best dressed of the evening:

Stylish Shopping Site


Yesterday in class, one of my fellow fashion students discussed this new website called Boutiques.com It is a personalized shopping experience owned by Google. This site is amazing-- it lets you find and discover fashion items through a collection of boutiques created by celebrities, stylists, designers and FASHION BLOGGERS! This site uses visual aids to help visitors discover and find their signature look and allows designers to display their collections and inspirations online.

When you first visit the site it starts with asking you questions of two pictures asking you to choose which style is more you, then it asks your likes and dislikes and viola! your signature style is created and items matching that style! It is like a one stop shopping site! It is definitely stylelista approved! The website had  its debut yesterday and is only going to get better in time! Visit here and sign up!

Stylish Royal Engagement

So it's official, Prince William is officially tied down, he has finally popped the question to Kate Middleton after 8 years of dating, (think it took him long enough?) Kate will be the future Princess following in Princess Diana's footsteps. Her ring is the same engagement ring Princess Diana wore (I love Diana a lot! I was born the same day she was!) 

She will also be in line to be England's sixth Queen Catherine. Visiting London this past summer I got to see where she and Prince William will reside once they marry and I am so excited for the both of them! What makes Kate even more incredible is she will be the first commoner to marry an heir presumptive to the throne in more than 350 years. 

She is the girl we all love to hate, she snagged the most eligible bachelor and I can only imagine how incredible their wedding is going to be. Kate is definitely stylish and while her style is cool and classic, her effortless wardrobe is what makes me adore her! The royal wedding is set to take place in Spring or Summer 2011.

GORGEOUS!
love this color on her!
Blue is definitely the color of royalty

Who do you think will get the honor to design Kate's dress? Bruce Oldfield or Temperly?

Stylish Designer Spotlight: Jane Post

I have been able to make a really awesome contact, ODA PR based in NYC. They represent some amazing designers (check out my interview with one here) and recently I got the opportunity to learn about an incredible designer, Jane Lipman Post. Jane is already well established in the industry, she is the force behind Drizzle, a raincoat company created by Jane and her late husband Jack Lipman. Jane is back brinigng her unique style to raincoats with her new line, Jane Post! 

While Jane was retired at the time, Saks Fifth Avenue approached her saying sales of raincoats were flat and the store needed a major makeover and glamour to be brought back into a category that was slowly dissapearing. SO Jane Post was born! It is a collection of rainwear and coats that stand out thanks   detailing and stylish quirks. For example, striped lining taken from a shoe box, or a trench coat with a zip-out cashmere liner, Jane knows how make your everyday raincoat stylish as ever! 

Jane is definitely stylelista approved and is living her life stylishly! Below are some of the items from Jane's Spring 2011 lookbook thanks to Mary from ODA PR!

Glamour's December 2010 issue has the gorgeous Fergie gracing the cover for the 20th anniversary special issue! It is also the women of the year issue featuring everyone from Diane von Furstenburg to Rihanna to even Maya Angelou! Definitely have to read the articles on each women!

Stylish Holiday Nail Polish

I just realized that I haven't done a post on nail polish in such a long time! Since I no longer work in a beauty store, its hard to keep up with my obsessive purchasing of nail polish, but I try to pick up new colors as often as I can. 

Lately though,  I have however been really dissatisfied with the colors in my collection. I spent my Tuesday afternoon trying on every color on my nail and trying to decide on a new color, and I went through A LOT of remover and A LOT of cotton balls.  So here are my must have colors for the holiday season! Some are new and some are old but they are going to soon be added to my growing collection!

Stylish Author: Hilary Duff

I'll let you in on a little secret, I adore Hilary Duff! There are so many reasons why I love her one being she is from Houston! I was a religious watcher of Lizzie McGuire and saw all her movies and her fashion taste is incredible! When I saw earlier this year she was coming out with a book I was more than excited to pre-order it on Amazon.

Her first novel Elixir, was released earlier this month and is about a girl who is the daughter of a prominent Washington D.C. politician and is now a photojournalist. On a trip she meets a man who is depicted in her photographs and the story follows her experience with e him. This is definitely a stylish read and makes me adore Hilary Duff that much more! Elixir is now available at bookstores or on Amazon and is the perfect gift to add to your Christmas wish list!
