Fall Trends to Fall in Love With

The scorching summer heat has faded away which makes us all give a little sigh of relief. But, what are we even more excited about than the promise of a beautiful Fall?... Fall fashion of course! Here is our guide on how to look hot while the weather gets cool!

Charlotte Ronson Sephora Beauty Party Recap!

LES Hotel Chantelle, vodka infused cupcakes, endless refills of HobNob Wine, and Charlotte Ronson; these are a few of our favorite things! And luckily for us, we got to experience all of them Monday night at the Charlotte Ronson Sephora Beauty Party!

Celebrating CR's collaboration with Sephora for her new Charlotte Ronson beauty collection, fashionistas from all over gathered on the rooftop of Hotel Chantelle for an amazing dinner followed by an even more amazing after party featuring the musical stylings of DJ Harley Viera-Newton. Some of the fabulous party goers included: Charlotte Ronson (duh), Charlotte's mom Anne Dexter-Jones, the social climbing wunderkind Genevieve Jones, Nylon's Accessories Director Dani Stahl, DJ Mia Moretti, filmmaker Sarah Sophie Flicker, singer/ model Sky Ferreira, Venezuelan social butterfly Fabiola Beracasa, actress/ DJ Becka Diamond, and singer/ songwriter Shooter Jennings; way too many fabulous people to name them all! Charlotte's sister Samantha Ronson and her long-time pal Nicole Richie were unable to make the event due to travel complications that ensued from Hurrican Irene.

LES Runway Brings the Runway Downtown!

Cheryl Maleh's Kickstarter campaign to bring fashion shows to New York's LES has finally reached its funding goal! The show will go on! Beginning September 7th and running through October 1st, this part fashion showcase/ part pop-up shop will include 12 events that definitely cannot be missed!

Paste USA, Olasul, Sir New York, Rachel Rose, Lumete, Alexandra Taylor, Meghan Patrice Riley, Gemma Redux, Domestic Holding, Reddoll by Tatyana Mereyuk, Newform Perspective, FE Wearables, Shaelon Smith, C Pettel, Pip-Squeak Chapeau, Shown to Scale, Visantine Collective, Eleanor Lee Jewelry, and Adha Zelma Jewelry are all of the designers participating in the LES fashion extravaganza!


We absolutely love the look of red lipstick, but we do not love the stress that comes with wearing it! Constantly worrying about our lipstick smearing all over our face while we're trying to enjoy our nights out is just no fun! So you can image how excited we were when Nylon told us about a lip balm that goes on (and stays on!) with the ease of chapstick, but leaves your lips with a beautiful red sheen!

This genius innovation, called Red Passion, was created by Sugar, the makers of some of our other favorite lip tints like "Plum". Available now at Sephora, we know this will be a huge hit for fall!
Designer Spotlight: Jess Rizzuti

Jess Rizzuti, an extremely motivated individual, literally brought her handbag collection to life one-by-one with her own two hands. Her handmade bags, produced locally at an NY manufacturer, are the epitome of her design philosophy: congruently beautiful details, unmatchable craftsmanship, and a unique, breathtaking aesthetic. Supple custom leathers such as embossed croc and crackled metallics, handpicked linings, and fascinating accents are the main components of Rizzuti's signature style. Great for day or night, Jess Rizzuti's handbags are a must have for the fall season!

Lauren Conrad's PSA for LA FNO!

Lauren Conrad has been quite the fashionista this past year! Last February, she debuted her Paper Crown line and continues to release her line with Kohl's every season. So, it only makes sense that she is going to be a big part of LA's Fashion's Night Out!

Lauren and long time pal Whitney Port shot a PSA last week for LA FNO in order to bring awareness to a great cause! In the PSA, LC is rocking her usual bright-eyed look and looks adorable in the official FNO T-shirt (buy one for yourself and 40% of the proceeds go to the NYC AIDS Fund!)
