Blogettes and Gents, this just in from the tents: the designers have spoken, and the usual bare leg has been all but banished. The new trend for Fall 2010 seems to be the polar opposite: bring on the haute hosiery! The dames at Rodarte, Marc Jacobs, Max Azria, and a slew of other fashion luminaries have all shown covered legs for fall. Bold and playful leg-wear has made it down the runway and, even better, we have the online haven sure to bring you sheer delight with it's amazing assortment of hosiery : MYTIGHTS.com. Spotted in the tents (frankly all over the city) on fellow fashion revelers were sheer tights, graphic plaids and the always faithful matte black or opaque numbers. On the runway, designers made a statement with gold, gunmetal and metallic lurex tights and mixed some intricately crocheted tights with over sized colorful leopard prints (we can not get enough of the Jonathan Aston leopard print tights - see left). This crisp new hosiery choices look modern and chic on the models' long, lean legs; we can't wait to see it translated onto the sidewalk. With MYTIGHTS.com it's all possible from Haute Hosiery Collections like Emilio Cavallini to tummy busting Spanx Tights you can find it all on this amazing site! Ladies, take note - for A/W 10 gorgeous gams will be the focal point. Added bonus: leg-wear is the easiest and cheapest alternative to splurging on the latest Balmain shoes, - and with mytights.com it's just a click away!

Out of This World Scents!

No one can deny the powerful (even polarizing) effect of fragrance. Happily, the only overwhelming thing about these out of this world blends is their appeal - bravo Mugler, bravo!
Thierry Mugler ANGEL (starts from $17.39 - $145.19 prices exclusive to Fragrancenet.com ) is part floral, and part spicy and definitely all gorgeous. Notes of sandalwood, and patchouli, and plums give it depth; fresh citrus, melons, peaches, and plums and vanilla keep it feminine - my all time fave!
It's undeniable that Mugler - the man behind the motorcycle corset and as of late Sasha Fierce's costumes knows fashion - but mon petites this too can be said of his perfumes and colognes which manages to be decadent and delicate all at once... they are worthy investments and with the wallet friendly prices only found at Fragrancenet.com you are free to indulge without guilt!
Brimming with amber, vanilla, orange blossom and woods, Alien by Thierry Mugler (starts from $11.79 - $52.19 only on Fragrancenet.com) is incredibly sophisticated—not cloyingly sweet.

SHOPPING NEVER BEEN SO SWEET!

We love a good bargain—and we especially love one that's as easy as the click of a mouse. CovertCandy, an online community, is like a couture Shangri-La for fashion junkies. (Don't be intimidated—it's free and anyone based in the UK can join.) The site offers peoples to 'swap' clothing from high-end brands to hard-to-find and cult favorites using a wardrobe database and friend network with other fashionista's with similar taste!

Here's how it works: Members then build their network, and products are swapped on a first come, first serve basis. And, unlike some other sites, CovertCandy gets their loot directly to you —and ensure it's all authentic. Added bonus these is another way of going green - the more you 'swap' lessons the chance of items going to the landfills!

If you're based in the United Kingdom & have a need for vintage clothes online check out CovertCandy.co.uk to sign up for the deals !
