It’s been a crazy couple weeks!
In between covering shows for Vogue.it, Tweeting, Tumbling, and of course Blogging, I’ve had very little time left over for Mail Bombs. Now I’m at the airport, tapping away as I prepare to fly to London for Fashion Week!
Still, I know a lot of you have been dying to know what a few of your fave celebs have been wearing, so I’ll do my best.
If anything, we’ll have Unsolved Mail Bombs at the end for the lot I wasn’t able to decipher.
Let’s get to it!
First up, Chavon says, “Hi FB team! Can you suggest affordable pieces to help me create this look seen on Angela Simmons during NYFW?”
Angela’s top is pretty unique, and after a bit of searching, found she was wearing a piece from Jewel by Lisa’s Fall/Winter 2012 collection, along with a Herve Leger skirt and Giuseppe Zanotti shoes.
Her jacket is so distinct, I doubt there is a similar look for less. But hey, you never know, perhaps it’s affordable? Contact the good folks of Jewel by Lisa here to inquire.
Deah types, “I desperately want to find the brand of sunglasses Rihanna is wearing in this picture.”
“… I have found plenty of info re: her outfit, but not the shades. Your help would be greatly appreciated!!”
Bomb sunglasses brand Dita recently confirmed Rihanna has been spied in their Magnifique sunglasses while out and about in London.
Unfortunately, however, the Spring 2013 frames aren’t for sale as yet. In the meantime, get your life with the Dita styles below:
Nana writs, “I know summer is wrapping up stateside but down here in South America, it’s just getting started. Spring temps have already reached 90 degrees. These cute cotton dresses would be perfect. Where can I find ones like Keke and Tracee are wearing?”
As we know, Tracee doesn’t mind repeating key pieces in her wardrobe, and thus slipped on the same Isabel Marant gray tuna dress we reported that she wore back in August.
Get it here. As for Keke, I’m not sure of her exact designer, though you can certainly get a similar look with this $51 River Island Twist Waist Jersey Dress:
Get it from ASOS.com
Next, Donyelle says, “Claiiiiire ! I need to know who these sneakers are by!”
“…I spotted them on instagram this morning & they’re perfect for that hitop sneaker trend that been going on. I need these in my life. If they’re too pricey can you help with some affordable finds. I’m not trynna break the bank hunny! Thnks!!!”
The good news is, we know the brand. Bad news is: there’s no look for less! Rocsi posed for her Instagram fans in a $210 pair of Teddy Sneakers by Jeremy Scott.
With certain items, there is no look-a-like, only the original! Get yours from Barneys.
Dominique says, “I saw this pic of Draya Michele and I fell in love with this dress.”
“… It would be great if you could tell me where she got this from……”
Draya posed for Instagram in a mermaid number by Latoia Michelle. The designer has been busy gifting this dress to several reality starlets, as the piece has been spied on Toya Wright and Tae Heckard:
Latoia’s marketing efforts have worked, as it seems the dress is sold out! Keep your eye on LatoiaMichelle.com for when they’re back in stock.
Becky says, “Karrueche Tran wore these cute boots.”
“Do u know where she got them from?”
Karrueche hit the supper club with her boo Chris in the same Versace boots Keyshia Cole wore to her New York listening party:
Visit Versace.com for info.
Note: Someone also asked about Chris Brown’s t-shirt. Not sure, but if you know, leave a comment!
In another Karrueche Mail Bomb, Mara writes, “Do you know where I can get Karrueche’s blouse or a similar piece? :)”
I’d say Karrueche is most likely wearing a vintage piece, but if you don’t want to scour vintage stores, this $440 Paisley Button Down by Etro has a similar paisley pattern and button down design:
Get yours from Stylebop.
Sandra says, “I was hoping you can find this dress that Demi Lavato Is wearing on the X factor?”
Yep! It looks like Demi slipped a suede vest over this Topshop Pansy Printed Bodycon Dress:
If it looks familiar, Rocsi Diaz wore it on 106 & Park with a pair of Giuseppe Zanotti heels.
Unfortunately, due to popularity, the dress has long sold out. Peruse other printed bodycons at Topshop here.
Gloria types, “Mimi from Bad Girls Club Las Vegas posted a pic of her wearing these earrings on her Instagram.”
“… Do you know where I can find them?! They’re so adorable!”
It seems like Mimi is a fan of Melody’s Ehsani’s ‘That Girl Is..’ Earrings:
The $34 hoop stunners come in various colors, including white and pink. Get yours here.
Ok, so my plane is about to push off (and I still have one pesky review to write for Vogue.it), so I’m going to leave the rest as unsolved. Leave a comment if you know the score!
Social Buddafly writes, “I’d would really like to know who makes the denim jacket T.I. wore to the Birthday Bash 2012 in Atlanta this past June.”
Tanisha types, “What is this dress that Draya Michele is wearing??? I LOVE IT SO FAB. Where can i get it =)”
Lastly, Mia says, “I’m hoping you gals can help be figure out where I can find Tae Heckard’s entire ensemble, the earrings and the dress specifically. Please let me know, thanks!”
Tae tweeted that her fringe earrings were from Envy Boutique in Atlanta (e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for the scoop). They don’t have online commerce, so perhaps her dress is from there as well? I’m not sure, but leave a comment if you know!
As for me, I’m off to London, and have my Canon with me to capture all the international action.
Wish me luck!
And have fab weekends.
I’ll check back in from the other side of the pond.
