The latest installment of H&M’s Conscious Collection is now in stores and online. I stopped by my local H&M store yesterday to check it out. I’m so impressed by fabrication and the tangerine, red and gold hues in this collection. This collection is really gorgeous. There are a couple of upscale collection exclusives here like the $249.00 lace dress modeled by Amber (above) and the ruffled flamenco dress for $199.00 (similar to the one that Penelope Cruise wore to the Oscars Vanity Fair party) that are already selling out.

Los Angeles designer Karen Kane’s new Spring 2014 collection is full of comfortable and stylish American classic. I recently got to sample some pieces from the collection (including the striped dress above) and the collection is so stylish and flattering that it’s easy to love. The designer gifted me with the best-selling contrast panel stripe dress (priced at $168) for the LuckyFabb conference. With it’s navy blue solid side panels and striped nautical theme, this dress fits like a dream. I’m not exaggerating. The dress is very slimming because of those well designed side panels, that create an optical illusion of a straight line skimming your curves and slimming the hips. This cute little red, white and blue number is “Made in America” as are all of Karen Kane’s designs. Continue reading
Last week before the LuckyFabb conference in Los Angeles, I was invited to a special beauty event. The Blow Me Away salon in West Hollywood on 3rd Street invited LuckyFabb bloggers in for a shampoo, blow-out and styling inspired by Wendy’s new salad menu. The salon gave me a fantastic blow dry, straightening my naturally curly hair. While at the salon, I got to try Wendy’s new Asian Cashew Chicken Salad. The new salad is a great healthy and affordable food choice. The fresh ingredients–including edamame- are not typical fast food fare. For those of you who know me, like most women, I am always trying to diet. The Wendy’s Asian Cashew Chicken Salad, with 380 Calories. 6.0 Fiber and 36.0 Protein, is a great option when you need to get a quick meal that has protein and is low cal. The salad is full of delicious zero calorie cucumber slices that provide a nice balance to the spicy edamame topping. Continue reading

If you haven’t heard about Parisian designer Inès de la Fressange’s collection at UNIQLO, you will want to head to a UNIQLO near you. The designer/model has turned out a great looking collaboration with UNIQLO with wrap dresses, sweaters, jackets and even coats. The styles are paired down and simple. My favorite is the striking midi “idle jersey” wrap dress for $29.99. The printed lawn shirt dresses are also very charming and well priced at $49.90. Early reviews from UNIQLO shoppers are very favorable on this collection. It sounds like some of the dresses run long, but it’s easy to hem them to make it work if the rest of the fit is good. Another plus on this collection is it’s very professional, you can wear the dresses to work. It’s great to see a a stunning and stylish 50 something year old women modeling and designing such a well-priced fashion collaboration. More UNIQLO stores are steadily opening around the US with a new Southern California store scheduled to open this fall in South Coast Plaza.
