Matthew Williamson x Gossip Girl: What Did Chuck Do?

Check out Matthew Williamson's forboding store display for this week.  It's a reference to the upcoming Gossip Girl episode, "The Inglorious Basstards."  It looks scandalous.  Will Chuck let his evil Uncle Jack use Blair again?  Poor Blair.  Will she ever recover from such a fall?

Why Saks continues to be my favorite luxury retailer

I don't have the money for such luxuries at the moment, but let me point out the ridiculous markdowns on the following authentic Herve Leger dresses at Saks Fifth Avenue.  As an aside, I should mention that this was an exclusive online sale available only to its loyal customers.  (Click to enlarge the following images.)

Bottom line: Don't pay MSRP.  Don't get ripped off on eBay.  Exercise patience, my dears.  Such great bargains will appear occasionally on Saks, Gilt, and Hautelook.

old clothes + back seam stockings = fierce

These BCBG Max Azria back seam stockings ($12, in the Persian Blue color) are so fierce!  I finally got a chance to wear them today.  Winter is definitely not over yet.  In Atlanta, we seem to get all four seasons within one week in March.

Risto Bimbiloski: my favorite LBD

sneak preview.  More pictures to follow once I actually wear this to an event.

Not sure how I should style my hair for this dress.  My hair is very versatile at the moment.  I do know I want to avoid an updo, because I would feel uncomfortable exposing too much skin.
