The winter chill is almost gone and Spring is here! The recent warm weather in Los Angeles made me think of one thing: it’s about time for bathing suit shopping! While the stores haven’t fully stocked on the latest swimwear collections from multiple brands, some online retailers are rolling out their two and one pieces early on already. I found this cute little gem for the Sanrio lovers out there: a Chococat swimsuit (priced at $22.80 at F21). Readers, what do you think?

On a side note, I found it really amusing that they styled the outfit with the furry salmon colored boots (?) with a pastel-like baroque scarf. Because, you know, that’s how I roll to all pool parties.

What stands out about the Indian-born designer from others is her modern and feminine mix of both Indian and American cultures. Beginning her career in 2009, Salins was formerly an interior designer before establishing her career as a fashion designer.

There is a reason why fashion week all over the world begins a few months before each season: to give everyone else the chance to pick up on the season’s noteworthy trends and stock accordingly – - and of course to be the first. It may be easy and simple for retail merchants to make out these trends, considering that this is part of their jobs and all of the access to fashion shows, but this may not be the case for common folks like us. To make it easier for you, we took a look at all the big designers and their fall collections and compiled a list of what’s to hit big in a few months. Not only that, but we’ve also suggested a few items that captures the essences of the trends.

With the warm, quintessentially L.A. summer still upon us here in Southern California, there’s no doubt that I’ll be finding my way to a few more barbecues before the summer comes to an end. With some days at the park on the horizon, check out a few outfit options – for all less than $100!
I have to admit, as much as I love sitcoms and scripted television shows, I cannot really bring myself to spend 3 hours watching an awards show. I’ve done it in the past, don’t get me wrong, but it is definitely not a regular pastime.
However, I do love checking out the red carpet fashions and this year’s ladies seemed extra-impeccably-dressed. Could good taste finally be coming back in for Hollywood? Let’s take a look at some of the fashionable Asians strutting their stuff.
True Blood’s Janina Gavankar added extra flair with a pink fluffed mini and Stephen Webster jewels at the HBO Official Emmy After Party. Continue Reading »

Fast fashion mega-brand Forever 21 is under fire again for producing designs a little too similar to original pieces by other designers.
Sooo … in my frantic and very pathetic effort to quickly move out of my apartment back East, I accidentally threw a big box of my stuff out. And being me, of course I threw out the box with my camera, iPod, three pairs of heels, and a number of other valuables. I also lost a clutch and a purse … or two.
If I were you, I’d hop on either of these bags before I get on ‘em. Made by Samantha Thavasa and valued at $295 each, nabbing one of these bad boys is the cherry on top to start your banana sundae weekend.

And they’re so cool, they’re off creating other cool stuff when they’re not creating cool stuff for Audrey. Cool, huh? Here are where a few of our contributors are up to in their (limited) spare time.
