Happy, Happy Friday!
I’m sooo excited about Memorial Day! I’m not going anywhere fancy, but the vacay is much needed. Before I ship off, a few mail bombs.
This time around a got a little bit of help from my new *fabulous* interns: Suzie, Elita, and Rachel! You’ll meet them in a few weeks. For now, let’s get to it:
Reader Madia asks:
Do you have any idea where I can find this dress?
Reader LongLeggedLife wrote in, and suggested that Beyonceâ€™s Dress was this $50 frock from H&M.
The blog Nitrolicious wrote about it here.
I initially thought Bey mightâ€™ve been wearing the brown version of this $800 Melissa Odabach Elizabeth Lace Kaftan…
…but Iâ€™m not sure.
What do you think?
Does Beyonce shop high or low?
Next up reader Monica H appreciated my Style File Intervention on Serena Williams, and asked:
Do you know who made this dress?
She continues, “I love it. I’m so glad that somebody has stepped in and helped Ms. Williams with her fashion choices.”
Well although Serena’s guns made her look a bit masculine in that particular frock, I’m sure this $475.00 Catherine Malandrino Printed Silk Halter dress …
…will look smashing on you!
Lastly, readers have been clamouring to know what Mommy Solange…
…is wearing in this picture.
Reader NicJac said:
“Check out the hotness that is Solange’s black/white dress! Can you tell me where I can find it or a cheaper version?”
Takisha also exclaimed:
“I seriously need to know where I can get the dress that Solange has on in this picture of her and Beyonce shopping in Milan. I really need your help with this one. I LOVE IT!!!”
See? This one was a toughie, so I solicited the help of the Fashion Bomb ‘terns.
TFB ‘tern Elita didn’t find an exact match, but said that this $1,240 Cotton-silk-elastane dress by Piazza Sempione..
..was a close match.
I personally couldn’t figure out if Solange was wearing a dress or a skirt/shirt combo. At any rate, I found a few items that can get you a similar look for less:
Pair this $58 Button Front Bib Top from Arden B…
With this $89 Signature Jones New York Floral Skirt…
And accent with this $49.99 Kenneth Cole It’s Patent-ed Belt.
And you’re good to go.
Have great weekends!
PS The other night my buddy previewed Sarah Jessica Parker’s…
…new low priced line, Bitten. Apparently everything in the collection is under $20 and will be sold at Steve & Barry stores.
A few of the pieces:
Looks pretty cute. The line hits stores next week! Visit Steve & Barry’s site, www.steveandbarrys.com, for a location near you.
Happy, Happy Friday!
