I don't know if I have anything that I can wear with these but thats ok, we will take care of that! Because I'm wearing these shoes!

Not only is this dress on point, but the price is unbelievable from what it originally was. It's over 80% off! That's why I love Gilt Group. If you are willing to wait a little bit sometimes you can get some really nice things for next to nothing. And oh by the way, there's a friend of mine who got this same exact dress at the regular price earlier this year, I sooooo want to go and tell her how much I got it for!

Not only perfect for your New Year's Celebrations but look at the way this dress is made. Small gathering mid-bust to create that dramatic "V." Then the tiny hem is about 4 or 5 inches above the knee. Now this is an instant classic, especially if you can get it in solids like a red or a black. You can even dress it up with a floral broach directly in the center or on the upper left hand shoulder. Or you could wear a long, floor length chiffon, black scarf thrown over your shoulders.

Actually I like this coat. It's just that I would've like to seen it tailored a bit more right above the waist. You know to give it a more definitive swing. Other than that this coats a winner. Oh, and did I mention it's on sale too!

I'm seriously trying to stop posting shoes for a while but I guess I know that "ain't gonna happen" no time soon. I'd wear these with some straight legged jeans or a nice pencil skirt. Feminine indeed with the nice little bow in the front. These definitely go under my no borrow (ever) rule.

Here are a few of the things that I had slated to show you this year that I almost didn't. They are just as stylish and timely now as they were when I first laid eyes on them. So let's get it started.......

As with all fragrances, Chanel's Mademoiselle is an exercise in preference. It's a preference that will soon give way to a "must have" because this fragrance is heavenly!

The Ultimate Collection Barbie is now available for purchase at Assouline. The iconic gal turns 50 next year, and it's only fitting to celebrate her fashion highlights. Designers like Christian Dior, Anna Sui and Bob Mackie have dressed her over the years, and this coffee table tome shows all the highlights--in that signature shade of pink. It's a Collectible worth having for all you fashionistas.

Juicy Couture Does Barbie

You know that sound you make when you press down all of a sudden on your cars breaks? I think that's what I did when I discovered these too cute Barbie Dolls by Gela and Pam at Juicy Couture. The detail is painstakingly real a standard for any Barbie Doll. Look at the accessories on these dolls, I see earrings, a necklace, a bracelet, a faux fur jacket, and before I run out of room to tell you about it, I do believe that's the Classic Chanel Logo on those shoes. At any rate I want that dress that they are wearing!

Cool Beach

THE house of Versace is pioneering a cooling system - so that guests to its esteemed Palazzo Versace hotel in Dubai might be able to walk across the beach attached to it without burning their feet.

According to the Sunday Times, the world's first "refrigerated beach" will comprise a network of pipes beneath the surface of the sand that contain a coolant to absorb the sun's heat. The hotel's swimming pool will also be refrigerated and there are proposals to install giant blowers to waft a breeze over the beach in a bid to attract guests in the already-saturated market, which attracts the most exclusive of guests looking for the ultimate in luxury.

"We will suck the heat out of the sand to keep it cool enough for to lie on," confirms Soheil Abedian, founder and president of Palazzo Versace. "This is the kind of luxury that top people want."

Hyder Consulting - a British construction consultancy - is overseeing the engineering on the project for what will be the second Palazzo Versace in the world (the first is already operating on Australia's Gold Coast), due to open in 2010.

Goyard Trunk

Imagine my surprise when I found this Goyard Trunk by Assouline available at Revolve Clothing. Now the most significant thing about this trunk is that it's filled with over 100 of Assouline's signature Memoire photo-biographies on art, fashion, design and architecture. Assouline's books include photo-biographies on Lanvin, Chanel, Le Corbusier, and Bauhaus. Now the trunk is a work of art in and of itself. It's got exquisite detail on it that's both aesthetic and functional. It's exclusive to Revolve Clothing and the Assouline Store in Paris France.

Common and MicroSoft=Softwear

So here’s a fashion collab we never saw coming: Rapper Common has partnered with Microsoft to create a clothing line called Softwear.

The line debuts in late December in specialty stores nationwide and t-shirts are expected to retail for around $32 a pop.

It’s pretty much what you would expect from the marriage of a rapper and a computer company - ’80s-inspired graphic tees with a tech twist, so picture green Doogie Howser-ish typeface artfully arranged to create various images. Or, in the words of Common, shirts that make you go, “Man, this is incredible artwork and I want to wear this and I want it to reflect beauty, creativity and humanity…look fly but say something, too. So some of the shirts got messages, some of it bring…all of it got a purpose.”

I like Common. He's positive, one of the good guys. So congrats. Do what you do!

Thank you Haley Phelan for this article.
