TRENDTASTIC
Trending: Fringe Bags

Going native is a staple trend that resurfaces time and time again; hence, the return of the fringe. Fringe purses make a bold statement that we hear loud and clear this season. This playful accoutrement adds texture to any outfit, and accentuates the teasing nature of a piquant fashionista. Its boho chic appeal speaks to an earthy vibrance that is embraced by celebrities such as Ashley Greene and Fergie.

To achieve an effortless look, rock an oversized fringe purse alongside dark denims with a sheer sleeveless top and flats. Taking day to night is as simple as trading in your oversized purse for a cute fringe clutch and a pair of decadent stilettos. Here are a few of our picks!

STYLE STALKER
Style Stalker: Fergie's Floral Rock n' Roll

Fergie recently stepped out looking summer-rock-n-roll chic in a skin-hugging Dolce & Gabbana floral print dress, cropped embellished leather jacket and yellow Christian Louboutin heels. She completed the look with over-sized black sunglasses and a simple black clutch.

We love the combination of flowers mixed with a rock edge. This look is also very versatile and could work year around. We're conservatively estimating Fergie's look is coming in around $2500 to $3000 -a stiff number for most ladies out there. Our version comes in around $300 -all style, less cost!

DAILY POP
CD Review: Kanye West, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

There are so many conflicting public and private personas that culminate in the egotistical, frustrating and yet undeniably creative and brilliant man that is Kanye West. After all, West consistently invites criticism and speculation with each successive exasperating public stunt and diatribe. He may be an exhausting media fixture, but West has never shied away from confronting his own demons. It's this unnerving introspection that makes Kanye West's music electric, enjoyable and undeniably important.

With My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, the superstar has returned with an album that speaks not only to tabloid sensation Kanye, he of the Taylor Swift debacle, the Amber Rose over-sharing, the Twitter rants and media posteuring, but also to the private emotional depths of a man at a crossroads in his life. The album blends the dark, haunted self-analysis of 808s and Heartbreak with the slick, hip-hop-faithful production techniques of The College Dropout and inspired samples of Late Registration; it's the climax of everything West has been working up to until this point.

THE VELVET ROPE
LIV at Sun Life Stadium

Two seemingly different worlds collided Sunday night in South Florida during the Miami Dolphins season opener at Sun Life Stadium. I am not referring only to the two sets of football fans that came out to support their respective teams, one in support of the New York Jets and hailing from the cold north, and the other cheering on home team and local South Florida favorite, the Miami Dolphins, but of the traditional stadium experience and that of south beach nightlife. Sports fans and club-goers united under one roof to watch an epic edge-of-your-seat football game at Sun Life while celebrating the opening of the new LIV, which aims to revamp and enhance the traditional stadium scene with south beach flash and flair.
