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

Fabcrush Bids Farewell To Designer Alexander McQueen

February 12th, 2010 · No Comments

Fabcrush editors are longtime fans of the recently-deceased designer, Alexander McQueen. The designer who is known for his show-stopping designs was found dead in his apartment in London, Thursday morning February 11th, 2010, just days after his mother passed away. According to recent reports, McQueen hanged himself, but Scotland Yard will not confirm this. His autopsy will take place Monday, in Westminster, London. Funeral details is yet to be released.

McQueen was trained in England’s prestigious design house, Savile Row, and in 1994, he enrolled in London’s Central Saint Martins fashion school. In 1996, Alexander McQueen became the head designer at Givenchy before Gucci bought 51 per cent of his own company and propelled him into being the celebrity-favorite designer.

McQueen was honored by Queen Elizabeth in 2003 and was famous among Hollywood’s A-Listers. His edgy designs were eye-catching and also became Fabcrush readers’ favorites.

One of his longtime friend, fashion icon Sarah Jessica Parker who was recently appointed as Chief Creative Officer and President of Halston, mourns the passing of the designer:

“I am shocked and overcome with grief upon learning about the untimely death of the quiet genius Alexander McQueen. My heart goes out to his family and all those who worked for and with him.”

Sarah Jessica also spoke on how she finds Alexander McQueen as one-of-a-kind.

“Every single inspired, original, lofty, whimsical, stunning, brilliant and jaw dropping detail was Alexander Mcqueen. There has never been anyone like him. And there simply never will be.”

About McQueen’s unreleased designs, Sarah Jessica commented:

“What is more devastating is that despite all his success thus far, creatively, critically and commercially, his greatest achievements lay ahead of him. The future would be whatever he hoped to make of it,” she says. “God speed Lee. It has been a privilege for all of us to know you. You will be indescribably missed.”

He will be missed, indeed.

Say It With The Statement Necklace

October 8th, 2009 · No Comments

There was a time where a woman would think that only pearls around her neck can say something about her.  Pearls say ‘class’, and other accessories used to stay somewhat… silent.  Lately, the statement necklaces are crawling their way onto women’s necks and while they might seem weird at first, we assure you that they just take some getting used to.  You gotta get used to them real fast, though, because they’re the ‘it’ accessory this fall and they don’t only say stuff.  They scream out loud.

ACB by Annie Costello Brown V Neck Fringe Necklace

For first-time wearers, the ACB by Annie Costello Brown V Neck Fringe Necklace ($305.00) is subtle enough, yet casual enough to wear with jeans and edgy enough to wear with a simple dress.

Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Midnight Rambler Necklace

If you just love trying on different things and experimenting with fashion (or simply like to be the fabulous center of attention), this Lizzie Fortunato Jewels Midnight Rambler Necklace ($436.00) is perfect for you.  Going to the fashion edge will never be the same.

Juicy Couture Sequin Drama Bib Necklace

The Juicy Couture Sequin Drama Bob Necklace ($228.00) is a charming way to wear a statement necklace.  Think flowy pastel tube dresses and elegant cocktail parties to match.

Fiona Paxton Gilda Collar Necklace

Looking for a different kick in ‘exotic’ accessory?  The Fiona Paxton Gilda Collar Necklace ($375.00) screams “Sexy!” enough said.

Citrine by the Stones Large Drape Necklace

If you think statement necklaces are only appropriate to wear at daytimes, think again.  The Citrine by the Stones Large Drape Necklace ($318.00) is exquisite to brighten up that sexy little black dress.  It’s the new kind of elegance and no woman shall deny it.
