A sketch from the forthcoming Lela Rose for Lane Bryant collection

Lane Bryant has announced plans to bring designer Lela Rose to their stores for Summer 2015.  Special size ( I hate the plus-size label) fashionistas who are disappointed by the lack for size variety in the upcoming Altuzarra for Target collection might take their shopping dollars over to Lane Bryant.   Designer Lela Rose is well known for her signature prints and feminine styles.   I’ve attended her New York Fashion Week runway shows a few times and her dresses are truly beautiful.    This is the third designer collection for Lane Bryant, following their successful collaborations with Sophie Theallet and Isabel Toledo.  No word yet on pricing for the collection, but we’ll update you as soon as we have the details!

The entrance to the Hylunia Wellness Day Spa in Costa Mesa, CA

There’s a new day spa in Orange County, and this is no ordinary spa. Hylunia Wellness Day Spa offers not just beauty treatments but a taste of Bali.   The spa’s beautiful fixtures were all imported from Bali and designed to create a sanctuary from the stresses of everyday life.  Believe me, you’ll want to turn off your cell phone, pagers and all your  worries and mentally & physically check into Hylunia Wellness Day Spa.   Your treatment begins with a virtual journey to Bali where you start relaxing by imaging yourself on the beach, breathing deep and feeling the stress leave your body. You are put into a relaxation room, given a pair of 3-D glasses while you watch images of  Bali float by.  Unlike other spas, Hylunia Wellness Day Spa prepares you for your treatment by getting you relaxed before you ever enter the therapy room.

Kohl’s Offers Women the Chance to Get a Free Bra Fitting

Kohls bra fit event FILEminimizer Kohls Offers Women the Chance to Get a Free Bra Fitting

Take the chance to get fitted for a bra at your local Kohl’s this month

This month Kohl’s is offering women the chance to stop by their stores for a free bra fitting. Professionals from either Hanes (Bali bras & others) and Vanity Fair will be on-site to measure you and tell your what your perfect bra size is.  I stopped by and did the fitting last week after work, and I was so glad I did! Like 80% of women, I have been wearing the wrong bra size.   The means my clothes may not be looking as good on me as I would like and my bra is likely not offering me enough lift.

Target Releases Altuzarra for Target Lookbook

Target Altz Dresses 2 FILEminimizer Target Releases Altuzarra for Target Lookbook

Two of the dresses from the upcoming Altuzarra for Target Collaboration

Target has released the lookbook for their upcoming collaboration with designer Joseph Altuzarra for Target, coming to stores on Sept. 14.  As you might expect, the lookbook for this collection looks promising.  This collection is more targeted towards the professional, working woman that any I have seen at Target.   But how will the pictures translate to quality and fit on the Target racks?  That is always the question with Target designer collaborations.  There have to be hits and misses in any budget collaboration, because it’s very rare that mass-produced designer collection can be well made with synthetic fabric and factories overseas.  And  Altuzarra For Target is an ambitious collection for Target to produce in my opinion.

Kelly Osbourne’s look was very vintage looking at yesterday’s 4th Annual BeautyCon at LA Mart in Los Angeles

Fashion star Kelly Osbourne showed off her unique sense of style at the LA Mart at BeautyCon yesterday in Downtown LA.  Miss Kelly O looked almost demure in a plain black top and a vintage looking 1950′s style pink full skirt with white and black flowers that hit below the knee.   Of course, Kelly couldn’t completely go the Audrey Hepburn route with this look, although she did sweep her purple hair back off her face.
