Holiday Wishlist #4

Everyone wants to walk into a room during the holidays with a great outfit, amazing shoes, and an exquisite handbag. One thing that we forget about as an important addition to any outfit, is fragrance. This season, you can pick up the best scents at the best prices. Look no further than Bloomingdale's for the exclusive Marc Jacobs Lola Fragrance Gift Set-one of the newest fragrances on the market, this scent is characterized by layers and layers of delicate petals with every spray. My personal favorites are Viva La Juicy by Juicy Couture and Miss Dior Cherie by Dior. When you are out shopping for last minute holiday gifts, pass by the beauty counter at Bloomingdale's and pick up something amazing. You don't want forget to add that last accessory to any outfit on your way to holiday gatherings-all it takes is a spritz!

Holiday Poundage

So as we travel home for the holidays and Nana's homemade cookies can't seem to get away from our mouths, we're left wondering what dress will flatter us as we meet up with old friends during the holidays. Thanks to Herve' Le'ger we've found the answer! The Bandage Dress! Not only does it look sexy at any age, it flatters any figure. LOVE. Since the material includes rayon, nylon and spandex the dress doesn't lose its form as you wear it since your body adapts to it. While an original Herve' Le'ger is close to $1000, we've found ours from Victoria's Secret for under $80! Get one in a rich red, midnight blue or classic black with some big, but simple accessories, and you're set to have your cookies and eat them too.

CovetedGators: Kasi

Meet Kasi!
As a CovetedGator, Kasi's style can be described as West Coast romantic, with a free-spirited edge. Stores that top her shopping list are Urban Outfitters, Forever 21, and Anthropology. She loves admiring the designs of Max Azria, Oscar de la Renta, and Zac Posen. Why is she so excited about CovetedList? "I'm excited to utilize CovetedList.com for shopping and trend watching!" Currently, her favorite fall trend includes the amazing blazers we are all seeing on the runway. When feeling daring, she may even venture into the shoulder-pad trend. (I know you can pull it off Kasi!)
Fun facts about this CovetedGator:
What's your biggest shopping difficulty? "I'm very meticulous and it takes me forever to shop! I go in knowing exactly what I want and I never seem to come home with it, I settle for something I don't really need just for instant gratification."
Looking forward to wear next season: "I can't wait for the return of earthy tones and free-flowing seventies styles. Billowy spring blouses are always my favorite to shop for."
Go-to piece in wardrobe: "Any belt I own! I belt almost everything I wear, it ads a unique flair to anything."
Major: "Public Relations. Unsure about my future as of now but a career in event planning or PR for a designer would be ideal."
Holiday Wish List Item: "An oversized menswear watch, Michael Kors is high up on my list!"

If you see a belted beauty biking around campus, it's probably your CovetedGator Kasi! Pre-register for CovetedList.com today by typing in the exclusive code CLCUF so you can create a closet and gain more wardrobe inspiration from girls like Kasi.

Bright vs Shaded



Winter is a time that provides an opportunity to show off some amazing warm and stylish accessories. Gloves, in particular, are an essential piece to complete any winter look and keep those manicured fingers warm.

Do the Dont's!

As Juicy Couture has illustrated before, fashion and personal style are all about being creative and taking risks. Their "juicy" new ad campaign (yes, pun intended) featuring the slogan "Do the Dont's", is an AMAZING tribute to the wildly expressive side of fashion and encourages pushing the boundaries in both life and style. Not only do I believe the ads are sending a great message to the fashion world and it's devotees, but the colors and styles featured in the ads are absolutely incredible. Check out the ads and their outlandish messages below and, if inspired, browse Juicy's new collection here! So put on your most eclectic outfit, get out there, and start doing those dont's!

From the Hollywood Hills to Kohls Department Stores

After Lauren "LC" Conrad finally realized nobody wanted to pay $100+ for her plain new clothing line, she's done something more sensible and affordable; she's come to Kohl's! From party dresses to comfy cardigans, her designs for the department store are way cute and way affordable. Check em out!

Take it from Rachel...


Though her days in the OC are long gone, Rachel Bilson is bringing style to the streets in this motorcycle jacket by Monrow. Steal her look for just $15.50 at Forever 21!


Flash Find!

FLASH FIND: Ross Stores!
Great pair of classic black patent leather pumps made by Steve Madden. Wear them to the office with a blazer or out to the clubs with a tight dress or pair of leggings. Only $19.99!



Wild, yet modest pair of leopard print and leather accented booties. Showcase your wild, sexy side in these cute, peep-toed heels from Carlos by Carlos Santana. (Yeah, that’d be the singer. Who knew he made shoes? Surprisingly his stuff is kinda cute! Check it out HERE) Only $29.99!

Cheetah without the Cheetah


Cheetah's hot right now, as is Megan Fox in anything she wears (see left, from
InStyle, October 2009), but what I'm wondering is why anyone would want the huge face of a cheetah smack in the middle of their dress or shirt?! Not my bag. Instead, I suggest trying this black and white cheetah mini dress, on sale now at Urban Outfitters for only $29.99! Follow Megan's look and throw on a leather bomber or blazer to really let your inner cougar out. Go get 'em girls. Roaaarrrrr.
