It’s a cold Friday in Paris, so I’m staying inside!
Thankfully there are lots of Mail Bombs on tap–let’s go!
First up, Maggie says, “I love Rihanna’s jacket in the picture below!”

“…Do you know who designs it?”

According to several sources, Rih is wearing this Rick Owens’ $3,839 Shearling Peplum Jacket:

The asymmetrical oversized collar jacket is quite a splurge, but you can get Rihanna’s whole look for less here.

Stephanie was totally in love with Ashanti’s pink feathered dress:

She says, “I have been searching since last week for the designer of the dress Ashanti wore to the Empire State building lighting in New York. I thought she looked very beautiful. Can someone please help find the designer of this pink feathered hem dress??”
Hey Stephanie! Industrious reader Martha found that Ashanti is wearing this $310 Notte by Marchesa Strapless silk-georgette dress:

If you just love the silhouette and don’t mind going for a different color, we did find a few more affordable options in black:

Good luck!

Tanise says, “I have been looking for boots similar to these for some time now, but can only find clunky ones.”

Now for some wardrobe queries!

Alicia from Brooklyn says, “I need some help!  My friend’s wedding is coming up next month in the beautiful country of Trinidad and Tobago and it’s an African themed wedding.  Could you give me some tips on what to wear to the wedding without breaking the bank? I would really appreciate it!  Thank you so much!!”

For weddings, I always love to wear cute dresses! And since you’re going to the Caribbean, you can still flaunt strapless or sleeveless styles. Check out these cute options with ethnic prints and vibrant colors:

Next, Adora says, “I have a date to the Ballet here in Boston. The last time I went to the ballet I was a kid, so I got away with wearing whatever. Now as an adult I have no clue what to wear. I love dresses, skirts and more edgy fashion. I want to still look sexy and young (I am only 22) but appropriately dressed! Could you please help with some outfit options?”
For the ballet, I would play with the idea of a tutu, rocking an age appropriate dress or skirt with a layered hem paired with a grown up blazer or cardigan. Add a little sauce with a cute heel and shimmering clutch. Here are a few ideas:

Lastly, my homegirl over at A Belle in Brooklyn ( was looking for a black leather jacket that was under $350. We found the following for ya!

That does it for today!
Have great weekends!
