Trend Report: FABLE

I'm sure every girl has wanted, or still wants, her own pair of ruby slippers.  Ever since Dorothy clicked her heels three times and those sparkling red shoes flashed across the screen, a love affair with red shoes was born.  While you may not be able to pull off sequin covered red heels everyday, the Fable mary jane can give you a pretty close look with it's sweet style and shimmering red patent leather.  And what better look to pair with red shoes than the classic leopard print, which is turning out to be a hot item for fall!

Style Spotlight: DVF

Diane von Furstenberg is best known for creating THE most figure-flattering dress in fashion history - the Wrap dress.  Seriously, there isn't a woman alive who doesn't look flawless in its design.  Von Furstenberg also dominates the world of prints in the fashion industry.  Her amazing talent for color and pattern combined with her design of beautiful, wearable pieces means that much of everything she shows on the runways will be instant classics.  For Fall 2010, she depatred a bit from her usual aesthetic with tailored menswear-inspired pieces and monochromatic looks but still kept the feminine feel that makes her clothing so recognizable.  And for those looking for distinctive dresses to add to their wardrobes, DVF most definitely did not disappoint!  All her looks were grounded by sexy black heels - if you find yourself in a famous DVF wrap dress, or a similar look, tie it all together with some hot styles from Söfft, the Amalfi, Belvedere and Adria:
