Jill Zarin in THEIA
Do you watch Real Housewives of NYC? If not, no worries, but Jill Zarin is a popular reality T.V. star who attended the 6th Annual MADE in NY Awards this past week. She posed for the camera wearing a midnight stretch taffeta THEIA cocktail dress. I couldn’t help but love the sweetheart design and ruched fabric compliments her figure. This little black dress is perfect for women of all shapes and sizes. There is a built in stretch corset that supports the bust and minimizes the waist. If you want the look then check out the deets below.
What: THEIA Ruched Cocktail Dress
Where: Saks Fifth Avenue
How Much: $575.00
The weather has perked up and so should your personal style! True, summer doesn’t begin until June 21, 2011 but you can beat the heat by getting a head start on your seasonal shopping. There are so many fantastic finds I had to share at least five.
Popular shoe designer, Sam Edelman has created a must-have revamped ballet flat, that’s seemingly perfect for every woman this summer.

designs professional, tailored and empowering frocks that are sure to fit every woman’s shape. The Tara Fit-Flare Dress
is a perfect example of a stylish piece that can go from work to the Downtown LA Artwalk. Its classic color will easily shift from day to evening wear.
Everyone needs to pick up a book this summer even if it’s just to borrow a recipe. Kim Haasarud

If you intend on arranging a summer party or even entertaining friends why not do it in style? This book offers exciting ways to creates delicious drinks. Hassarurd gushes that,” It is about combining ingredients to create a sensation on the palate and entice all the senses with a combination of flavors, textures, aromas and garnishes.” You can’t forget the garnishes so don’t forget the book.
Hand candy is my ‘fave’ and Cantamessa
has launched their newest aquatic-themed collection that’s perfect for a summer soiree. I adore the pieces and especially the details of the squids, medusas and all the other fish. The white encrusted jellyfish will certainly make a statement and get the attention of admirers.
If you live near the water you probably have a ton of scarves but Scarves.com
