New Luxury Sleepwear Line: Sophia Graydon

September 4th, 2012 · No Comments

Do you feel like sleeping in this Fall season? You can hibernate but still, do it in style. It just so happens that a new luxury sleepwear and loungewear brand called Sophia Graydon has launched for your stylish fall-winter hibernation. Sophia Graydon is the creation of Monica Nassif, who started her career at Target, and founded Caldrea Co., a company specializing in premium, earth-friendly household cleaners.

About her new venture to luxury sleepwear, Nassif said:

“What attracted me to this category is it lacked glamour and sophistication…There’s what I call granny flannel wear, pin-up wear and yogawear…I thought why can’t you have something beautiful, and elegant, something to slip into when you come home from work?”

She came up with “Sophia Graydon” after looking at her family album.

“After naming former businesses after two daughters and my mother, I went through my husband’s family album and found two names on the family tree, siblings, and I thought the names were beautiful.”

Nassif is not kidding about the ‘luxury’ title for her line, as she features deep hems, petite French seams, menswear-inspired cuffs and tuxedo striping. She uses Swiss cotton, Grand Marais Scottish cashmere, French silk and Odessa French lace for the collection. Here are some peeks:

Priced between $175 to $3,950, Sophia Graydon is available from sizes XS to XL. For more on Sophia Graydon, visit www.sophiagraydon.com.

Color Splashes at New York Fashion Week!

September 12th, 2011 · No Comments

What we love about the New York Fashion Week is how each of the designers who participates in the event sometimes end up with similarities.  They still have their signature touches, however they couldn’t seem to escape the similar air of the next season’s offerings.  Here are some of Fabcrush favorites from the event.  First up: bold fresh colors from DKNY.

Still in the bold colors mood, Project Runway alum, Christian Siriano offers some freshness in the formal lineup.

Tommy Hillfiger also came up with some fresh colors in its resort collection.

In the formal front, along with Christian Siriano, Zac Posen offers some really elegant structured dresses in calmer color tones.

Among the blocks of bold colors, Charlotte Ronson presented prints on her collection.  Symetrical lines and patterns adorn the collection and we LOVE them.

Which collection will be filling your wardrobe next season?

One-Piece Hotness!

July 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Some of us don’t look that great in bikinis, and that’s a fact we have to deal with every time summer comes. However there’s a true misconception about one-piece bathing suits.  While often perceived as ‘not hot enough’, one-pieces can actually be sexier than the typical bikini.  The secret is: you’ll have to know which one is right for you.  Fabcrush editors are all about sexy one piece this summer with this basic fashion principle in mind: sometimes, too much skin revealed is just not as sexy as creating curiosity.  So take a look at our picks for the summer’s hottest one-piece swimsuits:

Norma Kamali Bill One Piece in Red, $385

MIKOH Swimwear Lucas One Piece in Turquoise, $185

Juicy Couture Miss Softee Bandeau One Piece in Black, $164

Get Beachy For The Summer!

June 9th, 2010 · No Comments

There’s a reason why summer is around, and one reason we love is that we get to strut our stuff on the beach.  And you know, by ‘our stuff’ we don’t just mean our bodies, we mean the whole package.  Before you head to the seasides, check the summer sale they’re having over at ShopBop. Today we found some really amazing stuff and that includes this edgy poncho from Brochu Walker, which could be a great cover-up for your bikini.

Brochu Walker Angled Poncho, was $285, now $142.50

And what to wear underneath?  Opt for a bright-colored string bikini.  Like this one:

Milly Fiji String Bikini Top, was $88, now $26.40

Other options for cover ups are loose t-shirts and shorts.  But why go for boring tees if you can have edgy ones? Check this three-strap back tee from KAIN Label.

KAIN Label 3-Strap Back Tee, was $97, now $48.50

Add a touch of high fashion to your beachwear.  Something blue and cheerful, perhaps?

Jessica Simpson’s No Make Up Marie Claire Cover: Legit or Not?

April 14th, 2010 · No Comments

By today, the world has recognized the suddenly-famous Marie Claire cover: the make-up-less Jessica Simpson. But then questions raised and people are starting to talk about the legitimation of the ‘loud’ no make-up statement. This is simple in our regular world, but very big in the fashion and beauty world!

Some blogs reported that if you look closely to the cover image, there’s some make-up residue around her eyes or maybe they are touches of mascara. Anybody can say negative stuff, but Jessica stood up for herself:

“I absolutely was not wearing make-up. If anyone compared the Marie Claire Photos to the airbrushed ones, the differences would definitely be noticeable.”

Aside from promoting her upcoming reality show “Price of Beauty”, Jessica wanted to send out an important message to women that she is a normal person and thus boosts their self esteem.

Well, it’s good that Jess is not selling make up (yet) in her Jessica Simpson fashion line, so you can enjoy her designs without being a ‘different’ person.  Fabcrush has selected some strikingly hot Jessica Simpson fashion items for your summer, and here’s the complete beach outfit.  With things like these, who needs make up?

Jessica Simpson Oversized Floppy Hat, $44

Jessica Simpson Shades, $51

Jessica Simpson Long Sundress, $118

Jessica Simpson Cane Sandals, $69

Jessica Simpson St. Tropez Tote Bag, was $128, now $91.35

Fall In Red

September 4th, 2009 · No Comments

The upcoming season of Fall is always identified with golden touches over grey nuance.  Here at Fabcrush.com, we believe that any color can fit into any season, as long as you put them right together.  Today we fall in love with this asymmetric Notch skirt from Linda Laudermilk.

linda-loudermilk-notch-skirt

Very ‘fall appropriate’ navy blue and a sleek cut makes it a great choice to greet the golden season.  The Linda Laudermilk Notch skirt is available on Zappos.com for $160.00, already marked down from $279.00.  Having a color hanging on the verge of ‘boring’, we figure adding touches of red will lighten up your look.  And here are the Fabcrush-approved red additions to the skirt.

french-connection-sea-stars-top

French Connection Sea Stars Top, original price $120.00 now $90.30

alexander-mcqueen-squeeze-it-clutch
