I did the best of entertainment photos, now for the best and worst of the fashion mags from July. There are some really great, and by great I mean bad…and good, shots. Llamas and Mouse ears oh my. Which are your favs?
Outfitspiration. I have realized the last month or so that my summer wardrobe is lacking in style and well generally lacking in everything. Mainly because this is the first summer I’ve seen in 4 years and I’ve all but tossed most of my warm weather ware. So here are some looks to help inspire:
Today is not only the birthday of the country I live in but it’s also the birthday of my husband and best friend and uncle and various assortment of random other folk I know. So happy day to them and everyone else because like all other holidays in this fair country it’s an excuse to eat drink and buy stuff for a discount. So here are the best ones for this particular holiday
The best department store for designer picks at surprisingly affordable prices, the sales at Bloomindale’s tend to be a must-browse. Exhibit A: Through the Fourth, get 25% to 65% off everything from summer sandals to swimwear. Vacation packing list? Done.
2. Dolce Vita:
The affordable and trendy footwear and apparel line just got a whole lot more affordable with 20% markdowns sitewide, including sale. Stock up on sandals, colorful wedges, and tee-tottering platforms for under a hundo through Friday.
3. Club Monaco:
Shop an extra day online through July 5 or skip the pool and head to a store on the Fourth for an extra 30% off sale items. Wicker totes, striped maxis, and button down blouses all make the cut.
4. Eugenia Kim:
Nearly where ever you are in the US this summer, the sun’s going to follow you. Luckily, there’s no more auspicious time for headgear of the wide-brim variety. Get yours for up to 50% off from one of America’s leading milliners.
It wouldn’t be a Fourth of July sale round up without a nod to Gap. Get 40% offthrough tomorrow in honor of their Red, White, and Blue sale. America.
6. Nasty Gal:

There’s been much to-do about Piperlime’s 60% off Lime-Tag Sale that’s been going strong for about a month. But now, take an extra 20% off by entering SALE at checkout. So much of the covetable merch falls below $50 we can’t name it all here. You’ll have to check it out for yourself.
Few things get us as excited as the Shopbop sale section where you can find Joie maxis,J Brand shorts, and Diane von Furstenberg frocks for up to 70% off. Everything isn’t dirt cheap, but if you’re on the hunt for surprise deals, this sale is a good start.
10. Tory Burch:
Tory Burch seems to know what American women want and, to that end, makes plenty of tunics, sleek collared button downs, and dresses with clean lines and no-fuss prints. And then the brand goes and offers a sale. It breaks down like so: Spend $250 and get 20% off, spend $500 and get 25% off, and spend $750 and get 30% off. Enter SUMMERTIME through the Fourth at 11:59pm PST and you’re good to go.
Taking a hint from the pros….this is how classic summer style is done. Love Love Alexa Chung’s dress.
I think the title of this editorial is completely ridiculous but I think the images are beautiful and the clothes, by Natalia Grzybowski Hybrid Collection, are stunning so I’m willing to overlook that one tiny flaw. Via Fashion Gone Rogue
Here are some things I want from the sale:
There’s always a film festival of some sort going on, of course an excuse for the celebs to get all gussied up, the one going on now is Cannes. I think at some point in my life I need to go to Cannes… not necessarily for the film festival but that would be great too. Here are some of my favorite looks, I particularly love Eva Herzigova in that white diddy, so classy:
With the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s annual Costume Institute Gala approaching, tomorrow, it’s only appropriate to look back at some of the favorite fashions that have graced their red carpet over the years. Personally I think the Met Gala fashions can kick the Oscars fashions ass any day. So many amazing choices but I think Kate and Marc has to be my favorite, though Cate Blanchett is a close second.
