Fantastically fashionable, up and coming designer Kate Morse is now avilable online!
Kate has always spent a ton of time shopping second hand stores for remnants of lace and beautiful antique pins.
That is where her brainchild Katherine Denby was born; from there it has grown and we are so proud to see the mature and delicate collection now featured at Chickdowntown.com
The current selection is of beautiful pastels, lace and amazing crystals.
My personal favorite is the thin nude 20's inspired Cassandra. I need it, now.
It is such an easy essential for everyone's fall wardrobe. I love the neutral band,that will go with everything!
Vintage, inspired head bands with just the right amount of sparkle. Yet, super comfortable so they can easily become your every day go-to. Plus the price points are amazing; starting at just 40$ +.
I am telling you, this girl has just the right balance of fashion and function in her collections.
Whenever I rock my Katherine Denby headpieces, dozens of people ask me where I scored it. Now i can direct them to Chickdowntown.com and they can get a little shine for themselves.
The well known online retailer often embraces new designers before they explode into the main stream. So watch out world, Katherine Denby is the hottest new head wear to rock.

Yves Saint Laurent will be unleashing it's latest beast and she's not going to play nice.
With a 105 millimeter curved heel and fur detailing, these shoes will monster out any other fall prospects.
Picture them with a textured pair of bordeaux colored tights; or Spanx in my case and a cute little romper. Complete with a long homeless tattered sweater over it. Amazing.
Guarantee these heels will be on Taylor Momsen's feet in no time.
They will be released on YSL.COM in August and are already trickling in to stores; with the full selection available by early September.
Entry level pricing starts at $720 for all suede styles and those with fur detailing will run just a little over a thousand.
While we are on the subject of our favorite fashion house, Check out the new collection of men's sneakers that Stefano Pilati has put together for Spring/Summer 2011.
This little preview was peeped by the company this morning.
I am going to snap up all these sneaks, so my BF can be outfitted in style.
Just remember, there's nothing worse than wack-ass shoes.

Starlight children's foundation helps seriously ill children and their family's in desperate times of need and isolation.
The organization partnered up with American Airlines to throw their second annual "Night Under the Stars" benefit.
It will be held atop the acclaimed rooftop garden at 230 Fifth on Monday September 13th.
I got involved with this charity through a close friend who is extremely passionate about the cause; during the holiday season I sent a sick child in the hospital a stuffed bear for only 25 $.
Instead of buying two more drinks for my selfish ass at the bar the night before, I spent my money productively and brightened a really sick kids day.
It that felt awesome.
I knew this was an organization I wanted to be involved with because they focus on lifting the children's spirits through education, entertainment and inspiration.
I am sure you will fell the same amazing out pouring of support for Starlight after attending this event.
This is an amazing date night, a chance to show off your more philanthropic side.
In addition, to it being an amazing networking opportunity.
More information to come, I just wanted everyone to pencil it in while making their fall social calendar.
Nothing says tough-chic, like black and brass together. The best part of it all is?
This fantastic accessory is on Gilt today for 235 $ marked down from 795$.
There is a great assortment for sale, along with the bangle until noon 7/16 ET.
The craftsmanship on these pieces is to die for.
Manufactured in Italy, so all are sturdy and made of quality materials.

I dedicate my life to the gays, don't get me wrong; but every once and a while a girl likes to see a fashion house make something I can buy my boyfriend without him looking puzzled or like he wants to cry.
Yves Saint Laurent has done it well with the Malibu sneaker.
Ring up at 475 $ they are not just for the fashionista or the sneaker head; but for the man who wants to invest in a slick pair of sneakz'.
The design is sophisticated, not as urban looking as many sneakers have been as of lately.
Available in black patent leather and also a deep brown at Yves Saint Laurent boutiques and soon on the website at YSL.COM
So if your boy has been a good one..maybe it's time for a little treat.
Pictures courtesy of Style.com. Get to the site now!! They are bringing you perfect shots from all the Fall 2010 couture shows.
My favorite accoutrement of all, this season was the bow gloves sashaying down the runway at the Valentino show.
Gloves of all shapes and sizes; from white patent half gloves to full length nude gloves covered with multiple bows.
I am a huge fan of gloves period.
They can add class and elegance or just as easily add edge and attitude; depending on the materials and detailing. The gloves showcased in this year's show cover all the bases.
Check out Style.com's shot's from the show and pay special attention to the gloves! ah! I love them.
My personal favorite shots are #'s 31,40,12,13,16,19,24,26.
In case your interested.
Personal highlights of the night were his discussions on "man-tit's" and "garbage picking."
Two topics, anyone can relate to.
Mike had the room roaring throughout his 10 minute set.
It was littered with obscenities, just the way I like it and touched upon topics such as living at home with your parents and child molestation. His bit on Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator" literally brought tears to my eyes.
Boys and girls were hysterical, worlds funnier than the mouse-y girl with the dull "Animal Planet" jokes and the 18 year old guido from the Bronx, that also graced the stage that same night.
Even as Mike fumbled with the microphone stand, he had the audience's attention and laughter.
I'm telling you, if he keeps it up the girls will be flashing him at shows in no time. Me included :)
Another highlight of the evening was when Judah Friedlander jumped up on stage!
A fantastic stand up comic, Judah is also one of the stars of the hit show 30 Rock.
With his serious fro' and amazing beard, I'd let him take me home any night. ;)
In short, stay tuned B&B for more information on when & where to see Mike Ellison.
Huge shout out to Comix for hosting one kick ass night of comedy and big up's to all the other new talent that was out on Tuesday it rocked.

I wish I could buy stock in this company, because Toph Daddy is about to explode.
The entire team behind the ingenious conversation starting T-shirt line is amazing.
National Jean Company received our order today; in both Upper East Side and Murray Hill locations. So be sure to pick them up before you leave for the beach this weekend.
Tons of styles to choose from; an adorable short sleeve burn out tee in Pink/Navy and Black/Sliver.
A destroyed tee in Black/Pink and Grey/Black; I absolutely LOVE this style because of the amazing detailing!! Rep your bad ass attitude with a little shredding around the collar and fraying on the sleeves. It looks like you got in a bar fight and won :)
Also last, but certainly not least my favorite the 3/4 baseball tee burn out in Cream/Pink with a green sleeve or Black/Silver with a cream sleeve. All styles come with area code 212 on the front and "The City" on the back.
Don't think I forgot my hoe's in different area codes ;)
National is only carrying 212 styles as of right now, but you can reach out to Toph Daddy through their website
to ask them directly about your hometown.
I am a die hard Commando fan. Made by the company Her Look.
From a stylist point of view their nude nylon seamless thong is an absolute necessity.
Let's face it, some garments are too sheer or tight to wear very much of anything underneath.
So in a dire need to ensure you're client doesn't have any picture mishap's with a full on hoo-ha shot. Commando is a god send.
I am thrilled that this company is creating tons of new exciting lines and creating solutions for today's fashion problems.
So, I proudly introduce Commando Cotton. The first line of thongs made from light weight breathable cotton and still remains seamless under clothing. Amazing!!!
Quickly, these will become your new everyday go-to.
New York, I know you can appreciate the concept of breathable, seamless wonders since it has been such a scorcher these past two weeks.
We just received a fresh shipment at National Jean Company.
In addition we got in the new Tulip Thong in a plethora of colors.
I fell in love with this amazing green color called Grass. It's truly to die for.
Of course, standard nylon seamless thongs are fresh stocked as well.
Low Beams, nipple concealing adhesives are also in. Amazing when going bra-less (Only in my dreams!) Perhaps you're self conscious in that bathing suit? Low Beams are eqipped with super sticky grip, so they aren't going anywhere!
Also stocked on our shelves my complete obsession Matchsticks fashion tape.
I don't care what any one says, Scotch double stick just doesn't work as well.
Maybe, it's a mental thing.
Maybe I am just a complete label whore even down to my double stick tape?
Well, try it out and let me know what you're thoughts are.
Next Her Look purchase on my list? Commando Tiny Thong.
It sounds daring and I like that.
Anyway, Stop by and scoop up all your Her Look needs at Natty Jean; Click for locations.
