Mail Bombs+ Fashionable Weekend Events

Hey!
So for this week's Mail Bombs the new Fashion Bomb's interns represented like no other!

Let's take a gander at their handy work:
First, Khalilah says, "I’m in the Midwest and our weather is finally turning into Spring! I need help locating a cute waist-length trench like the one Tyra is sporting..."
"...Help me please!"
Adriana offered these options:
1. Juicy Couture Mini Trench, $298, www.bloomingdales.com. 2. Drama Satin Short Trench, $35, www.bloomingdales.com. 3. Vince Funnel Neck Jacket, $295, www.bloomingdales.com.
Next, 19 year old Jessica wrote in saying, "I'm in need of some help now!"
"...It's safe to say that I have a pretty good sense of fashion, but I was wondering if you could help me find these bracelets that Rihanna has on
......."
"...(I L.O.V.E. her by the way) I guess you could say she is my style idol....we both love edgy things!!!!! Thanks a billion!"
No problem! Rihanna stacked and mixed and matched different types of Kenneth Jay Lane Geometric Bangles...
...get the silver and black version for $100 a pop at www.madisonlosangeles.com. The white version is available for $57 at www.net-a-porter.com.
Next, Juanita says, "I am feeling the shoes that the Sugababe in the sequined dress (far right) wore to the Sex and the City World Premiere..."
"...Who designed them and where can I get an affordable approximation? Thanks so much!"
Adriana found that that Sugarbabe is wearing these $1,000 Jimmy Choo Apple Metallic Suede Sandals...
...but if you don't have an extra G lying around, you can get the look with these lower priced options:
1. Martinez Valero Class Sandals, $182, www.zappos.com. 2. Nine West Jewellite Sandal, $88, www.piperlime.com. 3. Stuart Weitzman Submit Sandals, $280, www.zappos.com.
Carol says, "I was surfing the 'net and came across this picture of Jordin Sparks..."
"...I absolutely love the belt she's wearing! I checked on eBay but no luck. I just got a simple jersey "Little Black Dress" by Willi Smith and this belt would be perfect. Can you tell me if you've seen anything similar or your recommendations."
Aramide from Chi town solved this one!
Check out these fabulous finds for something similar:
1. Cynthia Rowley Soft Leather Sash Belt, $98, www.nordstrom.com. 2. Patent Curve Cummerbund Belt, $192.50, www.shopbop.com. 3. Stitched Obi Wrap Belt, $26.17, www.asos.com.
Elizabeth from Memphis, Tennessee says, "I was wondering where I could find a dress like the green one Audrina Patridge wore at "Live from the Hills Season Finale"?"
"...It is hott! Help me find it or something similar!!"
New intern Victoria from Carolina maintains that Audrina's dress from the finale is by Alvin Valley.
I aim to please, so I found a few close approximations for you Hills fans:
1. Nicole Miller Matte Jersey Bubble Hem Dress, $220, www.nordstrom.com. 2. Christopher Dean Luna Dress, $335, www.singer22.com. 3. Vince Oragami Matte Jersey Dress, $240, www.bloomgindales.com.
Lastly, Fashion Bomb reader Diva says, "Could you tell me who SJP was wearing when the girls of SATC were on Oprah promoting their movie a few weeks ago? "
Adriana steps in again! She says, "The dress appears to be from the Oscar de la Renta 2008 Pre-Fall collection. I say "appears" because while the exact dress is not in the collection, the print fabric of it appears in other garments, and the cut, use of the leather high-waist belt, and fabric are all very much de la Renta."
Sounds good to me!
I found a few close floral approximations:
1. See by Chloe Printed Shift Dress, $520, www.tobi.com. 2. Ginny H Printed Shift, $690, www.neimanmarcus.com. 3. Floral Print Lady Dress, $150, www.bananarepublic.com.
That does it!
The interns helped out a ton, didn't they? How did they do?
Smootches!
