Texture takes a colorful new twist in this form-fitting, feminine sweater from Victoria's Secret. The look just makes me want to curl up next to a fire place, in a log cabin in the north woods, with a huge blizzard outside, a nice cup of hot chocolate and fashion mag. (Sigh).
Pick one up for the up and comming chilly months.

For all of the younger generation that still think of Levis as farmer's pants and the tapered leg look, consider this: Levi’s found itself struggling to reclaim its "jean status" in the market. But it was hard to do this with pricey denim competition such as True Religion, Seven and Hudson. It introduced a Levi Strauss Signature line at Target and Wal-Mart, priced $27 and below.
This year it brought out its Special Edition jeans, which sell for $50 and $98. Barneys and Neiman Marcus began selling Levi’s Capital E, a premium line priced up to $200. I was always accustomed to seeing Levi's at Macy's and other department stores on the clearance racks, lonely and abandoned. But when I visited one of the Levi's store in Providence, Rhode Island my eyes popped out of there sockets when I spotted an AMAZING pair of flares for 128$!!

It's Gucci's 85th anniversary, which makes this fall's ready-to wear debut all that more special. In Milan, the runway featured Gucci's efforts to broaden the brand's accessibility to young women than with reciting its past 85 years worth of designs.
These looks would be nice for a girly vacation come next summer.
The Moschino show had all the elegance of late-fifties womanhood: the gloves, the bouffant hairdos, the crinolines under the skirts. But the girls Rosella Jardini designs for aren't for the homely type women. Whether on a hot date or solo, she creates styles for women who are ready for the dance floor. Tailored pieces, like trenches and curving boleros—along with leggings, some in gold Lurex—gave evening numbers a cool and sophisticated edge.

A turbaned girl in a burgundy ultrashort tunic—all bare legs and high heels—started the show off, followed by another in a purple, high-necked long-sleeved satin dress reaching below the knee. Welcome to the twilight zone! What was this? Why were nylon backpacks strapped to those tiny, bottom-skimming tops? Why were these looks mixed with forties-looking, rounded-shoulder dresses, blouses, and slim pencil skirts? And why all the strong reds, oranges, and jewel-colored satins for summer? Slightly disapointed with this one.
