DIY That Style! Emmy Rossum’s Studded Tee and Print Skirt

diy-that-style-emmy-rossumEmmy Rossum always looks adorbs when out and about, and the outfit above is no different. Sure, it may be intended for warmer weather – but throw on a chic coat, a warm pair of tights, a cozy scarf, and you’re ready to face the chillier days ahead. Let’s break down her main outfit, though – shall we? I think this is pretty easy to DIY! Here’s how:

Add some gold leaf-shaped clip-on earrings (these are a great find!…or SUPER-budget-friendly ones under $5 here), pull your hair back in a luscious pony, and you’re ready to go, Emmy-style.

How would YOU add oomph to this sweet little ensemble?

DIY That Style! Diane Kruger Polka Dot Blazer and Banded Fedora

howtodiy_nauticaldianekrugerWelcome to the first installment of DIY That Style! I actually used to do a version of this as “Steal That Style” …this is basically the same thing, just renamed. And made a little cooler, with more of a focus on DIY.

For the first breakdown, I’m going to take a look at Diane Kruger‘s recent chic nautical Spring shopping ensemble – which can be easily re-created at home. Love all that navy!

For this dotty statement blazer, I’d personally go with a pair of red pants and totally red-white-and-blue it up!

What would YOU rock this polka dot blazer with?

Britney Spears’ Limited Edition Collection for Candie’s at Kohl’s

ads
Britney Spears has kept somewhat of a low profile since all her media snafu’s in the last couple years – but now she’s designed a line for Candie’s (yes, purportedly designed), available exclusively at Kohls.

Check out her video below introducing the collection:

And the runway show of the pieces themselves:

What do you guys think of this?

For me – A) I have serious doubts that she actually designed the collection, and B) the collection in no way stands out from anything I’ve already seen on hundreds of shelves in retailers from Macy’s to Target to catalogs like MetroStyle and online stores like Ami Club Wear.  It looks pretty indistinguishable from the multitude of low-priced teen fashion that is out there – and nothing about it seems “special” or says “Britney” in any way.  (Though what does nowadays?)  Add to the fact that Brit’s signature style (if she ever had one) and iconic status has all but disappeared over the last decade’s debacle of media outbursts, family scandal, indecent public exposures, questionble mental capacity, marriage woes, and legal trials – and the fact that she is no longer thought of as a “fashion icon” at all – and it makes me wonder why Candie’s thought this a sound move.  I’m also wondering what the price point for these pieces will be.  Will they be a steal, manufactured offshore in China and Bangladesh?  Hmmm.

In any case, Britney looks healthy and confident – which is truly a great thing.

If you’re really, really interested in all this – you can get behind-the-scenes videos, more photos, and an interview with the photographer for the campaign here.

The limited edition collection of day and evening looks, handbags and jewelry, titled “Britney for Candie’s,” will be available at Kohl’s and www.kohls.com starting July 1st, while products last.

Anyway – discuss!  I’d love to hear where you guys stand.
xoxo
Carly
