Lee Stafford Does It Again

The UK's top celebrity hair stylist, Lee Stafford, has helped our beauty department repair its summer strands.  Now, he is making us diehard fans with his Lee Stafford Hair Growth Treatment. Featuring a miracle protein known as Angeline which refines the scalp, balances moisture and penetrates deep to stimulate the scalp proteins responsible for hair growth, this product also assists with redoing dry and damaged summer hair. Also available at ULTA, your pocketbook will not balk at the $11.99 price tag.

Now what about all of the blondes who are left with brassy heads from summer neglect?  Lee presents you with Hot Shots 4 Blondes which assists you from the roots up. This product was developed for all blondes: natural, colored or highlighted. The tiny Hot Shots packs a powerful punch. Each capsule is jammed to the ends with proteins, vitamins and self-heating conditioning treatments to improve your scalp's circulation.

This self-heating process also opens your hair cuticles to allow the reparative agents to caress every inch of your hair. This perfect weapon will save you from all your blonde hair woes: brassy, canary yellow tones, and dry, beat down, frizzy hair. You can find these little gems at ULTA, again at the bargain price of $11.99.

Thanks, Lee, Fashion Wrap Up salutes you as we head in to fall.

Style Find~ Pamela Love Talon Cuff

Style Find: Pamela Love Talon Cuff, $920.00

Where to Buy: Shopbop

Why You Should Buy: Like most people if you're going to wear an edgy jewelry piece for the day (work, play, etc...) you need  it to be not only eye-catching, but also functional. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on an edgy cuff for your wardrobe that features sharp spikes all around it. This type of jewelry can be doubled as a weapon (not that we are against that, just thinking about your co-workers and keeping you from frequent HR visits). The spiked cuff, while very cool is not conveniently practical, if you spend all day typing like we do, you'll find it constantly hits your desk and doesn't allow for comfort while working. Instead opt for this stunning gold-plated cuff from Pamela Love featuring talon detailing. Its semi-smooth edge allows for both style and comfort, not too mention it's a fabulous conversation piece.

White House Black Market Battles It Out with Ego's for Fall 2012

Supermodel Coco Rocha takes center stage for White House Black Market's Fall 2012 campaign in both print and television formats. The ad set is entitled 'AlterEgo,' and features multi-talented Rocha performing a carefully choreographed dance routine. As this ad sets to demonstrate, being a world class model means you must be able to do more than strike a pose for a camera.

Rocha perfected her set with the help of legendary Broadway choreographer, Laurin Latarro. Within a 30 second television set, around 12 different full body ensembles are featured. Rocha quickly steps into the role of a quick change artist. Will we see her on any upcoming Dancing With The Stars seasons?

While this may seem mundane and played out lately, thanks to Lady Gaga, Nikki Minaj and anyone else in the celebrity stratosphere claiming alter egos, the surprise reveal takes this show to the next level.

Photographer Glen Luchford is responsible for the print and marketing images. These are shot on set with the TV spot, incorporating fluidity and cohesiveness to television sets with a dance theme.


I know we can't wait to see your responses to the big reveal. While we would love for you to do the twist, our alter ego's won't let us!

The Stage-- a coveted space on the first floor of Isetan Shinjuku's flagship Tokyo location. 700-square feet, raised above the floor and playing host to many of the world's most sought after brands. This space is understandably considered to be the world's premier pop-up shop and Japan's hottest shopping location for fashion and luxury brands brought in for a limited time.

From August 15 - 20, Indiana's home grown accessories maven, Vera Bradley, will find a temporary home with its Asian fans. Coming on the heels of their first-ever international branding campaign, kicked off in April 2011, Vera Bradley will showcase their iconic handbags, luggage and accessories. The line plans to create a welcoming, home-like environment and feature exclusive items created just for this major milestone. While being featured in five permanent shops throughout the Tokyo metropolitan area, this opportunity is considered the introduction of Vera Bradley to Japan as a sought-after brand.

Vera Bradley believes in infusing color into a woman's life which can be seen in their highly decorative handbags, accessories, eye-wear, travel items and gifts. The line was founded in 1982 by two women, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard and Patricia R. Miller, who believed women needed the courage to be more colorful. The stateside presence of Vera Bradley includes more than 60 retail stores, 10 outlet stores, 3300 specialty retailers and their online website, verabradley.com.

Denim Trends for Fall 2012

Colored denim, spring and summer's hottest trend is carrying over into fall wardrobes. Popping up everywhere in splashes of blue, burgundy, bright red and earth tones like moss green, clay and rust. Celebrities like Sophia Bush and Kate Middleton are already transitioning their ensembles to autumn hues.

What other styles of denim are popular for the impending fall season?

Everything old is new again this season with denim. From patterned to coated, slouchy to distressed, here is a rundown of the upcoming denim trends for the fall/winter 2012 season.

Cropped Denim: Yup, we are back to this trend again. Best worn with statement making heels or sky-high platforms. Roll them, cuff them or buy them at ankle length; this trend is back in full force!

Boyfriend Denim: The slouchy, borrowed from the boys style, a popular favorite from the 1990s is back with an updated twist. There is something about this cool relaxed fit with an edgy feel that we love. Gentle rips and distressed details give this trend a slight edge. Pair with your favorite sweater or a feminine top to give it a girly sweet jolt.

Printed/Patterned Denim: Take your colored denim up a notch, if you dare. Floral denim was in full bloom for spring and summer and the trend is transitioning to fall in forms of animal print, baroque and graphic print patterns. Maximize this look by pairing with a single color and minimal jewels to keep it from being too loud.

Coated/Waxed Denim: This unique treatment resembles that of leather and it's sexy and fashion forward. Metallic hues and neutral hues are popular for fall. Pair with an embellished tank and cropped jacket or an open weave sweater and boots for a sensational look.

Editor's Pick~ Niks Naks Acrylic Monogram Block Necklace

Recently we saw Jessica Biel wearing a necklace that said "Justin" and Sarah Jessica Parker made the name necklace virtually iconic when her character Carrie sported one on Sex and The City. Personalized jewelry pieces really make a statement. Whether it be full names or initials, rest assured they are conversation starters.

Currently we are loving these acrylic monogrammed cutout necklaces from Niks Naks. The necklaces are available in 20 fabulous colors and you can select gold fill or a silver chain. You can select single, double and triple initials. We think the initials FWU will look really nice on a silver chain in a purple hue...just saying.

Brides think about gifting this as a keepsake for your bridesmaids, they'll appreciate your personalized touch. Purchase one of this chic necklaces for yourself with your new initials and proudly display while on your honeymoon.
