Mail Bombs

It's a lucky Friday...


...time for mail bombs! As per usual, I've received tons of great requests. I did my best to answer a few for ya. Let's get to it:
First up reader Keil from New Orleans asks, "There is picture of Eve wearing a pair of high waisted jeans that I love...."

"Could you please find out where I can get them?"
Eve’s jeans are widely reported to be by Fetish, her clothingline that went under for a while, but is set to relaunch tres soon. They're not in stores at the moment, but if you want a similar look, I believe that Diesel makes a great high waisted jean...

...visit www.diesel.com for store locations.
Next reader Angela says, "I LOVE the outfit Rihanna wore to 106th & Park and to lunch at Da Silvano...."

"...I want her look. Can you help?"
No problem. You can replicate a Rihanna 'Goth' look with the following:

Top Row: Seamless tank, $19.50, www.gap.com ; 7 for all Mankind Lucy Jeans, $150, CoutureCandy
Bottom Row: Kenneth Jay Lane Pyramid Bracelets, $98, www.maxandchloe.com; Brumley Ankle Boot, $398, shopbop.com
Next up die hard Fashion Bomb fan Penne asks, "I love the cute t-shirt Nichole from the Pussy Cat Dolls is wearing..."

"...Do you have any idea where I can find it??"
Well apparently a ton of people are fans of this cute t. You can get it...

...for $23 at www.viktorviktoriashop.com.

Next up, B from Dirty Jerz asks, "I have a beach wedding--in the Bahamas to be exact--coming up in a few weeks. Is it inapropro to wear white? This is my first adult wedding. People in my family and from my High School don't get married--or don't invite me. What's the protocol?"
This is a great question. First, do not wear white to the wedding. Only the bride shall wear white, and you can't outshine the bride! My suggestion is to pop on a dress in a light fabric...cotton or linen, no straps due to the weather (and sweat stains are not cute!). Given the venue, I'd say go for something in a tropical, vibrant color..tourquoise, yellow, even fuchsia or green. You want to match the FLORA. Add a dressy element with a sparkly shoe or clutch.
Use the following high and low priced frocks as inspirations:

Top Row:
Castle Starr Belted Dress with Beaded Neckline
, $485, www.ronherman.com; Kai Dress in Kelly, $143, CoutureCandy
Bottom Row: Muse Silk Floral Dress, $178, www.nordstrom.com;
Donna Morgan Empire Waist Sundress
, $98, www.nordstrom.com.

Lastly, an anonymous reader had the following reaction to my post on Bikinis for Ample Bosomed Beauties: "Heyyy what about one pieces! Not everyone likes to show their stomachs. As for me i want something to less emphasize my big rear end and hips...please help!"
I thought...great idea! There are plenty of hot one pieces that show a little bit of style a la Kelis...

...Rihanna...

...hey, even Courtney Love!

Try these:

Top Row: BCBGMAXAZRIA orange faded stripe cutout one-piece swimsuit, $58, www.bluefly.com; Fabucci Triple Cutout Maillot, $228,shopbop.com
Bottom Row: Pop-Sicle Cut Out 1 Piece, $80, www.guess.com; Bamboo ring cutout one-piece, $45, www.victoriassecret.com
Have an amazing weekend:)
Smootches!

I thought the reader said she didn't want to show her belly but all of your so called "one-pieces" show the stomach area.

The Rihanna one showed the stomach alot...might as well wear a bikini if you are going to wear that one. I have a similiar one to the red one you showed and i get alot of compiments on it. Alot of people really like sexy one piece bathing suits.

Anonymous said...

yeah... i agree. the one pieces were reall, really revealing. actually the rihanna one was quite worse than some bikinis out there. only someone with rihannas body could pull that off
