I didn’t sleep well last night and then Lucca barfed all over my comforter this morning (she’s fine, I think she just had a tummy ache), so I decided to work from home. With Ami off for the day and Julie working from home as well, it was looking like it might be a dull day in the office for Jessica and Kate and unlikely we would do a “What Are Wearing Today” slideshow. But Kate and Jess gathered a couple behind-the-scenes Frisky staffers and peer-pressured them into joining the style parade. Click on to find out what they are wearing today!
We couldn’t help but fall a little bit for Peter Som’s exuberant, larger-than-life flower prints in his Spring/Summer 2012 collection. But one thing we can’t abide — or afford — is Som’s exorbitant designer prices. So we’ve searched around and found 10 pieces that evoke the same sense of joy and happiness that Som’s flowers do, without the majorly bummer price tag. The key to wearing any of these floral items? Make sure to keep everything else very, very basic. Check out our picks!
I see you rocking your red J Brand jeans all the time and love how you pull off the look. You have inspired me to buy myself a pair of their colored jeans. I opted for the aubergine pair and am struggling on how to make them more work appropriate. I work in a business casual environment in a position of authority (don’t tell any of the staff that I spend a solid hour a day on The Frisky and other blog loves!). I also am among the youngest employees in the company and by far the youngest manager (I’m 29). Anyway, I would love your take on how to dress up my new jean loves and make them more work appropriate.– Angie

Instead, I like pairing deep purple with another dark, warm shade, like navy or black. To keep the outfit classy, wear high heels. Click after the jump to see how I would dress up these cool jeans.

We spend thousands of dollars on shoes in a lifetime, so it makes sense that to treat our shoes with the care and concern we’d treat a special work of art. That’s the thought behind the Shrine Rack, which allows you to hang your shoes on the wall in a seemingly floating display. And that leaves you plenty more room to store new pairs under your bed.

Good news for people who hate bad guys: After six months of legal jimmerjammer, John Galliano, the former fashion designer for Christian Dior, was found guilty of “public insults toward persons on the basis of their religion or origin.” Galliano, if you remember, famously got caught shouting racist and anti-Semitic remarks at fellow patrons at a Paris cafe this past year. The verdict was seen as a success, except that, well, his conviction actually comes with no punishment. The judge gave Galliano a suspended fine of €6,000 euro, though he will have to pay more than €16,000 in legal fees for the plaintiffs. Quite a deal, considering plaintiff Philippe Virgitti initially asked the courts for €220,000 in pain and suffering, after Galliano called him a “f**king Asian bastard.” [MSNBC] Keep reading »
