Fashion Star – round 2!

21 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Second episode of “Fashion Star” just finished and as usual, you can already shop for winning garments!

Have to note, I am sad for Ross (would love to have all his jackets especially pink plaid! so what the fabric it’s too thick – it can wait till fall!) and Orly with her cream dress with lace detailing on the bottom. Would wear that in a wink. Crossing fingers for them both next week!

Oscar should reconsider his profession, he would really do well as a stand up comedian (well, and do a part-time tailoring for night clubs). Although I have to admit, if not for him, there wouldn’t be much color on this show. Oh well, except for that turquoise tunic with a mouth on the back. What is it with designers who don’t know much about gravitation? If the garment is made of light fabric and has horizontal slits… what do they think will happen?

Ok enough about sadness! Here are the pictures and links where you can buy the winners!

First, plaid shift dress by Kara Laricks for $325.00 in Saks Fifth Avenue (available online now, will be available in stores Wednesday morning). Congratulations to Kara on jumping from “No offer”-s to a bidding war between buyers! She landed at $100,000.00 offer from Saks!

Second, amazing shirts by Nzimiro Oputa for $70.00 in Macy’s – available in stripes and white

Also in Macy’s, my favorite items of this week, dresses by Lisa Vian Hunter for $99.00 (available in pink and black&white)

Last, but not least, trousers by Sarah in H&M for just $19.95 (in blue and in white)

Happy shopping to you! And don’t forget to tune in for live web chat on NBC Washington next Tuesday at 10 p.m.!  The one from today is available to read HERE.

 
 

Elie Tahari’s spring fashions

19 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Many Tahari’s fans concentrated in “Wear now” on Three in Saks Fifth Avenue Tysons this Saturday.  Freshest spring fashions (and in this weather it feels like it’s time for the fall trends) were presented in very brief but substantial fashion show the spectators got to absorb what’s on this season. Neutrals and subtle colors, nothing edgy, all very classy and feminine, as it always happened under Tahari brand. Sangrias and delicious fingerfoods were riding trays all around, shopping was active, and somebody won a clutch in a raffle!

Enjoy the pictures as usual.

15 Mar

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

“Fashion Star” pilot aired yesterday on NBC and planted quite a buzz among DC fashion peeps. NBC Washington set up a web chat topped by Angie Goff, and co-supported by many DC fashion scientists. Hour and a half of the show, as well as a chat, was concentrated and rockety quick. Even commercial breaks on TV didn’t put off the bubbling conversation on the web.

Garments bought by Macy’s‘, Saks Fifth Avenue’s and H&M’s representatives, were instantly available for sale on stores’ websites, and by this moment some of them are sold out.

Show airs every Tuesday on 10/9c on NBC.

As Angie suggested, there might be Fashion Star viewing parties scheduled in the nearest future.

Nikki Poulos' maxi caftan dress, also in white, sold out on Macy's for $89.00

Zipper mini-skirt available in Saks Fifth Avenue for $350

Sarah Parrott's dress, also in black, sold out on H&M, was $19.95
