DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
City dressing is all about versatility and being able to go from day to night. This flattering dress from DVF Diane Von Furstenberg will certainly take you from the office and beyond. We love the retro-inspired print. Top the look off with the jacket of the season -- a leather moto-jacket by All Saints.
It's fun to keep it chic. Who says that classic lines aren't sexy? We can't begin to tell you how many compliments this model received as she strutted down the Bloomingdale's runway in this amazing Tahari tweed sheath dress. The makeup artist added a bold fuchsia lip for added appeal. A Fendi purse in a pop of color and Marc by Marc Jacobs statement necklace completed this look. Don't be shy and add edgy accessories, such as these leather grommet-detailed gloves.
Leather can now be worn to the office and beyond. This Hugo Boss leather skirt was to-die-for . The color of the skirt and the the way it was cut is so flattering on the body. This model rocked the look with a pretty Gerard Darel blouse and Links of London layered necklaces. Links of London is a brand favored by Kate Middleton and the pieces were gorgeous.
A wool fedora is such a great way to add a little mystery to your fall look. Think "undercover chic." This colorblock jacket by Marc by Marc Jacobs was a real head-turner. Many who attended the runway event were saying that they wanted this piece. Joonbug adores Marc Jacobs and all of his designs, so we also are a fan. With a slight military influence, but with an air of added whimsy with accent colors in burgundy, blue and tan this warm jacket can be worn with many outfits. The skinny jeans with patch accents are also by Marc by Marc Jacobs. The burgundy/wine color Ray Ban shades the model wore are perfect for fall!
Another notice-me look was the Ted Baker London ensemble. Florals can also be worn into fall. We saw this as this look graced the runway. The skirt was gorgeous and can definitley be styled to reflect your personality. If you wear the skirt with a leather jacket, you can make the look more street chic; or you could give it that upscale Park Ave. feel with a blazer and a chain-link bag. Ted Baker London has a great collection for fall including a chic tan coat we noticed.
Brought to life in 2009, the High Line, New York's mile-long park-in-the-sky which runs along the city's West Side, has been known to provide inspiration and respite to tourists, locals, and creative-types alike. Diane von Furstenberg not only helped fund the park's construction, but has sung it's praises in a special-edition collection in 2012, as well as a commerative map highlighting the designer's favorite places earlier this year. Sculptor Carol Bove, commissioned by the city, created seven original works for display in the park's still incomplete section 3, and famed architect Zaha Hadid, who at one point was in the running to design the park itself, has chosen the landmark as the site for her very first high-rise condomium building in New York.
Printed swimwear has always been popular but for Summer 2013 swimwear and streetwear meet in digital printed bathing suits. Swimwear by Australia's Black Milk Clothing can help you transition from the beach during the day to the clubs on the shore at night. Our favorite is the Shark vs Mermaid Swimsuit inspired by the infamous opening scene of Jaws and Disney's mermaid princess, Ariel.
Florals are so on-trend this season. This fab bikini by Splendid from Swimspot has a vibrant pop of color that will enhance many skintones! The side hip ties and removable halter strap allows for versatility. Ready to dive in!
Feeling a little flirty? This crochet bikini from Forever 21 in a soft blue will be sure to get you noticed beach-side and poolside We love the eyelet detail at the bust which enhances the bust-line in a flattering way!
Another figure flattering design is this L Space Bikini found at Neiman Marcus! Talk about ultra-cool. This bikini features a neon rocker look that's perfect for having fun in the sun! The grommet detailing on the bottom is sexy.
Perhaps you need a sassy little cover-up to tie your look all together? We are lovin' the Ipanema cover-up from 4drobe. The sexy sides and print have that bohemian feel we crave. This most definitely can transition to the poolside bar for a few refreshing cocktails! The drawstring waist also allows you to the style the piece for an amazing look. Add a few bangle bracelets, shades, Grecian gladiator sandals and you're set for the rest of the day!
Diane Von Fürstenberg’s new collaboration with ROXY is set to launch just in time for spring break! Being released online and in stores on March 7th, the surfer-chic collab between the high-profile designer and the Huntington Beach, CA.-based apparel line is a celebration of natural beauty and confidence. All pieces “reflect Diana Von Fürstenberg’s love of beach culture and nature as well as ROXY’s active and trailblazing spirit.” By combining DVF’s fun, bold prints with ROXY’s signature swim silhouettes the line is playful and empowering. Designed “for women who want to be the women they want to be” the collection includes ROXY’s beach essentials such as swimwear, cover-ups, board shorts, rash guards, and beach bags. For the most part, the bikini separates can be mixed and matched to create a bikini that’s perfect for your body type and style sense. We especially love the pastel tribal print of the Hopscotch Multi bikini with Knotted Bandeau Top! (top: $54, bottom: $46)
Joonbug is definitely feeling the style collaboration between Target and Neiman Marcus. Referred to as a "legendary partnership" featuring over 50 gorgeous gifts from over 24 exceptional designers, Neiman Marcus at the Paramus, NJ location is hosting a soiree to kick-off this fashion extravaganza. As many of you know, located in beautiful Bergen County, NJ -- the Neiman Marcus Paramus location is a premiere shopping experience. The area is known for their malls, and Neiman's certainly doesn't disappoint.
Summer wedding attire can be tricky for even the best stylistas. Day, night, beach (or other equally picturesque destinations), can result in a wardrobe conundrum that proves to be even more stressful than our daily decisions. It’s not always easy to achieve the perfect balance between looking fabulous but not stealing the show, statement-making accessories that still allow you to dance the night away, and expert styling for a look appropriate in any setting. Here are a few ideas for celebratory styles that will keep you confident and comfortable long after you’ve caught the bouquet.
Summer is a great time to show off your one-of-a-kind style and purchase a few essentials for your wardrobe. We all have the plain white T, pair of ray-bans, cut-off shorts, beach bag and pair of loafers hiding somewhere in our closets, but this summer, its time to liven up those pieces up! Take a look at these trendy new ways to freshen up the basic pieces and help make a statement with your summer wardrobe.
The Not-So-Plain White T
Everyone has a basic white t-shirt, whether it's a plain V-neck or a scoop; it’s an essential piece in every woman's closet. Instead of grabbing for the simple white T, go for a cool neckline or an asymmetrical hem! We love the look of this White T by Diane Von Furstenberg as it takes a new, chic look to the stable wardrobe piece with its wide neck, thick, asymmetrical hem, and oversized sleeves.
CFDA and Ebay have taken a second lap around with their collaboration of customized handbags promoting awareness for the unfortunate spread of counterfeit fashion with a strong tag line in big bold print saying “You Can’t Fake Fashion."

The auction started this morning at 11 am EST, and all will be sold on Ebay until March 31st. At $200 a bag, the designs are in 4 exclusive shapes: the duffle tote, the satchel tote, the gear tote, and the bucket tote. There is also an exclusive line of simpler bags going for $45, encouraging all you creatives to customize them yourselves. But hurry up and get them while they are still available! Many have sold out in just hours, and if it’s anything like the CFDA and Ebay collabo that went down last year, fans from all over the world will be scrambling to get the last of these stylish totes! All items will be sold under Ebay’s “buy it now” tab.
Join in on a good cause; contribute to the awareness of counterfeit designs and carry around a great bag to show your support for fashion and its right to be real!

March 6th & 7th: Multi-Designer Sample Sale
Last night, W Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Stefano Tonchi, partnered up with Global P&G Prestige President, Joanne Crews, to host the Ever Changing Face of Beauty event at our big apple’s Park Avenue Armory. In the frenzy of Fashion Week, W pulled out all the stops using the massive arena-like space to welcome more than 600 guests. If there was ever a fashion week party worth clawing your way into, this was it.
The event celebrated a video installation by world-renowned fashion photographer, Sølve Sundsbø and had a celebrity guest list that could go on for days. The video featured 2 large screens representing man on one, and woman on the other. Throughout the video, both screens show the outcomes of evolution in beauty around the world and its consequences.
