The Story of Coco Chanel

Want high fashion without emptying your wallet this weekend? If you live in New York or Los Angeles you're in luck. The fashionable movie, Coco Before Chanel opens this Friday, September 25th and will be opening in other cities soon.

Follow the life of Coco Chanel, from headstrong orphan to the woman who single-handedly changed the world of fashion. I love Coco, love how she stuck to her beliefs and in the end helped create couture as we know it today.

Check your local theaters for showtimes.

Headpieces that Make a Statement

I was first introduced to these fabulous headpieces by my amazing hair stylist, Jen Atkin, the last time I was at the salon. It was LOVE at first sight.

Jennifer Behr is the talented creator behind these beautiful custom headpieces. She honed her skills as hair accessory designer for celebrity hair stylist Frederic Fekkai. When Fekkai discountinued the accessory line, Behr decided it was time to go off on her own. Bergdorf Goodman bought her first collection sight unseen. As they say, the rest is history...a shiny one with any of these headpieces!

Here is a sampling of the current collection. To see more, visit Jennifer Behr's website.

Street Style in Your Closet

Yes, I'm one of those that easily gets side-tracked when it comes to working. Between emails and all of the fun fashion sites online, it's easy to lose track of time. I've been having fun checking out street-style fashion sites lately and came across this one that has captured my attention.

Weardrobe is a new community fashion website that allows its members to upload photos and catalog all of their fabulous clothes creating an "online" closet. Need a little inspiration, check out what other members are wearing while making new fashion besties!

They also keep it interesting by offering weekly contests where members can win some good loot. Careful, it's a site that easily becomes addictive and before you know it that report you had to get out is still waiting to be completed. At least you'll have the next day's fabulous outfit already planned.

It's not what you wear but how you wear it!
