Fashion’s Night Out will be held in the U.S. on September 8, 2011, and, in honor of the biggest shopping night of the year, designers have spent the summer creating one-time-only limited edition collections commemorating the big night. Even better news? You don’t need to spend a fortune to take home a piece of history—here are a few of my favorite picks for FNO items that cost $100 or less.

It’s no secret that the Parisian Fashionistas have been outdoing us in the style department for decades. No wonder that they are all so thin, with designers like Coco Chanel, Christian Dior, Emanual Ungaro, Jean- Paul Gautier, and Yves Saint Lauren at your front door step- who wouldn’t be?? My desk is covered right now with runway photo’s from the couture shows in Paris. Just so you get the heads up, the trend for Summer and Fall 2011 is as follows: Polka dots, recently appearing on knitted hot pants and tank tops in Miu Miu’s 2010 resort collection, then later on the fall runways: on suits at Marc Jacobs, on sheath dresses at David Koma, and adorning sheer chiffon blouses at Stella McCartney. So my girls, with so much great fashion in the air, I couldn’t help but think how I could bring you a taste of Parisian Couture right here, right now. Check out a few very simple ways that you can infuse a little European flair to your personal style.

1) Romantic Chiffon dot peasant blouse from Jackie’s Boutique Couture Collection- Black and white dots are not only adorable but synonymous with Parisian style. Wear this beautiful blouse tossed over a lacey cami for a peak of sexy, a steal at only $52. If you want to edge-up your look, cinch the waist with a wide belt (click to see belt) and wear with black dress pants, a skinny dark denim jean or white slim skirt. Tres, Tres Chic! (Shop Blouse)
2) What could be more stylish than a pair of red poka-dot platforms. OMG these are off the hook cute and Guess shoes are both economical and comfy. Girls, I love heels but if you haven’t tamed your arches, a simple ballet flat or red sandal is a great op as well. (Shop shoe)
3) This Tory Burch Nylon Tote is so sleek and timeless. It’s always a good idea to invest in a great bag every season. I always buy at least one…at LEAST one. I love this style because you can wear it day or night and it’s a terrific work bag as well. The size is great for most woman and it will even hold your Ipad. Nylon is a great choice because it’s light and tran-seasonal. (Shop Bag)
Don’t you just Adore Dior? As I sift through the mounds of fashion plates on my desk, I can’t help but wonder how today’s busy gal can translate couture into ready-to-wear? I have a plan for you. If you loved Diors Spring 2011 Collection, then why not try to incorporate this cinched waist blouse trend into your work or play style. The look will work with everything from jeans to dress pants and of coarse a skim skirt is ideal. But either way, you can easily get the look with a little imagination and a few key pieces.
1) Some wide textured belts in black, brown and neutrals.
2) Print or solid blouses with fuller sleeves and looser fit.
3) Fitted Pencil skirt or tailored slim leg pant

My clients have been asking some terrific questions this year that I wanted to share with you.
I love all the bright colors coming in for Spring and would love to try something different than my usual black bikini. I have brown hair and green eyes and am planning on getting a tan this year, doing a lot of boating and also have a cruise planned. Please help me update my tired look. I’m 5-5″ 135lbs C bra top and love your low rise bottoms. Samantha -NJ
JAX : Hi Samantha,
Excellent question. I love that you are taking note of the Spring trends and looking to try something new. A tan is definitely going to make it easier for you to wear the new vivid hues of the season. I’m of coarse recommending that you save your skin and use the fabulous spray tans available. Be sure to apply in layers. Exfoliate well first then apply a medium shade over a few days and be sure to moisturize really well in between. It helps even out the tone. Now for your swimsuit, I would recommend the Peacock Sunrise halter triangle top and the low rise bottom with the new swimskirt. The fabric was just featured in Sports Illustrated and we have an exclusive version in this years hottest color. I love the fit of the top for C cups sizes and your curvy figure will look amazing in our low rise bikini bottom. The skirt will be a god send on your cruise for brunch on the pool deck. Send me pictures.

I have always focused on designing swimsuits that create youthful support for both small and large cup sizes. Woman with larger cups have common problem areas such as needing more coverage on the side of the bust, under the arms and support. In fitting hundreds of clients over the years, I have designed several styles that have helped these woman look beautiful and feel comfortable in their Bathing suits.
These are my favorite designs recommended for large bust sizes.
This shape offers lift and support to create a flattering silhouette. The tie back will work if you don’t have really large bust but for large D and DD cup sizes, I recommend ordering the bra with a hook back closure. The mold is patented and a special design that carefully shapes with a very thin pad that prevents gaping and sagging.
Contour Classic Bra-
Fits alot like the Classic Bra but as you can see has more bust coverage in the cleavage area and under arms. The bra has wireless underwire a patented light shape cup lifts and supports a D and DD bra cup. You can customize it also with over the shoulder straps. I am loving how happy this bra has made my clients that just needed a little but more that the classic bra offered.
Ring Front Halter Bra-
This sexy shape offers a comfortable alternative to the regular halter bras. The tie back is adjustable to fit any band size and the ring front offers just the right amount of shaping yet still hides most of the bust yet shows a hint of cleavage.
Full Coverage Halter bra-
A bra that is truly full coverage. The shape is designed to minimize a large bust size without to much pushup. The strong hook back closure offers great support and the stretch halter ties allow you to adjust the neckline and create a more flattering silhouette.
See you at the beach!
