The thing I like about CLC’s designs is how most of her pieces are vintage inspired and detailed down to the button. My favorite, is the “Eva Lady Like Shirt Dress” because it’s a cut that works well with most body types.

Impress Your Clyde with Bonnie’s Look

Rumor has it that Actress Hilary Duff is set to take on the role of Bonnie in a another movie called “The Story Of Bonnie And Clyde”

The film is said to be about Bonnie and Clyde, the famed criminals who captured the attention of the press and readers during public enemy era.

In May 2008, Duff appeared in Allure Magazine’s Bonnie and Clyde inspired photoshoot (pictured left) which shows how much she can resemble a young Faye Dunaway as Bonnie.

Production is set to begin in April.

If this is all true, I’m excited to see what the wardrobe team is going to put together.

Lia Lintern Couture Coats Are Oh So Lovely

Julia Lintern, started her career as a structural aerospace engineer. Being a closet fashion designer, she launched her 1st fashion label, Molly Spinach in 2004.

Upon seeing how her spunky label gradually transformed into more sophisticated and complex designs, the new high-end outerwear label Lia Lintern has been created to debut in Winter of 2009.

Though each piece can seem too high on the price point scale, consider that each coat, made of cashmere and wool, is custom-made to fit based off of your bust, waist, hips, and arm length measurements upon ordering..

Brea Grant Style Update

Last night, Brea attended the HFPA Salute To Young Hollywood Golden Globe Party (held at Nobu).

Her dress by Los Angeles clothing designer, Jenny Han, whose designs are casual-chic and feminine was a perfect way to do all black.

Her necklace, by Portland jewelry designer, Amy Wing, is a perfect match to her clutch by accessory designer(s), Tivi, whom I’ve been a fan of for a while now.

Her boots and ring are both vintage pieces.
