Style Stealer: Ashley Olsen

Ashley Olsen showed off a new way to wear a simple beaded necklace by draping it across her chest and under her arm. This is in keeping with a new trend we’re seeing everywhere called “body jewelry” which includes chain harnesses and jewelry that drapes down the back or across the shoulders. We liked her look in this photo so much that we replicated it for those on a budget with a style set featuring our very luxurious Bag Snob Leather Top Handle Tote. Everything featured in our set is under $100!

Street Style

Many celebs in our street style round-up opted for soft, loose maxi dresses and blouses. These light looks are perfect for the sweltering summer months. A hip pair of shades and some strappy sandals enhance their casual street looks.

Gossip Corner

On Sunday, Lady Gaga was honored in a ceremony in Taiwan where they decided to name a national holiday after her. June 3rd was declared national “Lady Gaga Day.” During the ceremony, she was serenaded by a children’s choir and given a key to the city of Taichung. Not one to take such a gesture lightly, Lady Gaga bestowed upon the Taiwanese a free concert to which 40,000 people showed up! We think this is the first instance where a country has ever named a national holiday after a pop star, and it comes as no surprise to us that it was Lady Gaga to gain this honor.

Nicki Minaj suffered a heartbreaking tragedy over the weekend when she learned that her cousin had been murdered. She announced the tragedy on Twitter, saying, “”Lived in Brooklyn his whole life. My precious cousin. My baby. Killed last nite. My cousin Nicholas. Also goes by Juse… Murdered. Last nite. Near his home. Brooklyn, NY.” Our condolences to Nicki Minaj and to her family as they suffer through this difficult time.

Taylor Momsen has recently been spotted with fellow musician Natt Weller. Weller is a 23-year old from London and looks tough enough to handle even Momsen’s antics.

After his highly publicized split from soon-to-be ex-wife, Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz has been finding comfort in the arms of Michelle Trachtenberg. They recently rekindled their old flame (the two used to date back in 2006) and have been spotted cozying up with each other in downtown Los Angeles.

Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth may be headed for divorce after 10 years of marriage. A friend close to the family recently let it slip that they two were “taking a break.” Peter has already moved out, renting a home in Santa Ynez.

Bag of the Week

When it comes to accessories, versatility is key. When you find a bag that can be both a crossbody bag and a top-handle tote, you’ve found a true winner. When it comes in a sophisticated shape, with a classic look and a color that compliments virtually every wardrobe combination you can come up with, it becomes a “must have.” This week’s Bag of the Week ticked all of these boxes. We’re talking about our Alisha Top Handle and Cross Body Leather bag. It is ladylike and understated and made of high quality genuine leather. It doesn’t get much better than this!

Style Stealer: Rachel Bilson

Rachel Bilson has an undeniably well-honed sense of style. We’ve never seen her look bad, not even when she gets sneak-attacked by the paparazzi while she walks her dog. Her cuteness belies her sophisticated eye. Bilson is always well put together, whether she is embracing a casual, bohemian look, a red carpet glam look, or a business casual look. We thought this snap below was utter perfection. She combined neutrals with a powerful pop of orange and a classic black quilted bag. Since we admire Bilson’s style so much, we put a similar look together for you in a style set featuring our Obligatory Classic Flap Bag for only $59. In fact, none of the items in our set are over $100!
