Joes Jeans- The perfect fit

With the thousands of Designer jeans out there in the world- it's really hard to pick a favorite. Then again- I have a favorite - Joes Jeans. The fit is amazing, they are extremely soft, long lasting and the price is a bit lower than most. I myself gravitate towards the Provocateur fit. Now I'm 5'4 - clearly no fit model BUT, no need to hem! Makes me feel just a little bit taller.
We at Queen Bee actually just got in a new shipment, and I could not be more satisfied. Check em out! I guarantee you'll find your favorite fit out of the many styles and stick to it.

NuBras just got EVEN better

Anyone who owns a NuBra can vouch that it changes lives (in the wardrobe department of course). I couldn't agree more- What's better than a Bra you can wear with anything-backless, strapless etc- that actually gives you a rack when you have little to work with? Simply stick on one cup, stick on the other, push together and clasp- BAM! ...cleavage. So, I don't know why they never thought of this before but NuBra has JUST come out with a Push Up Seamless. I for one am super pumped. Tell your friends- they will thank you.

Get it here!

Old skool do- new skool trend

The process of braiding has been around for ages, and seems to be making quite a comeback. We've seen celebs sporting their lush locks wrapped up in different styles. Whatever style you prefer- fishtail, crown, or just a simple french- this summer you're sure to inspire others with this simple yet elegant trend.

Harem Pants- Love them or Hate them?

It seems that most people hate the new McHammer-esuqe Harem pant trend. Me- I'm a little on the fence about them. This particular example really just makes me think of a grown-up diaper. But I have seen ones that can work, and many of the major designers have also jumped on board- DVF, YSL, Ralph Lauren among others. While living in Florence years ago I saw this trend on many of the Europeans which then slowly crossed the Atlantic over to the US around 2008, and still growing slowly- Spring and Summer 09 were big season's for the interesting trend. I don't think they've hit their max just yet- so can plan on watching the trend blossom and change. My advice- get the higher crotch that has more volume and slowly narrows to the bottom. The length should hit mid calf- and make sure to pair with some killer heels. Be bold!

Lady Gaga, What are you doing?

You have to give Lady gaga props for her unique and risky fashion choices, but this is just utterly ridiculous. There's a point when bold fashion moves just go too far. Maybe she has a pimple? Maybe she had a bad botox batch? Whatever the case may be, leave the scary dominatrix mask at home. Ok, Lady Gaga we get it, you're kinky.... after this charade, I'm left with a sour taste, from her "saving face"

This economy is bad for retailers but good for consumers. This summer, stores are going on sale much sooner then usual. Make sure to check your local stores and score designer Summer threads for much less! There's still months left of Summer (as most of us are hoping in the New England area-what is UP with this weather?)- so you can buy it now at a bargain and wear it now!

At Queen Bee save on Summer cocktail dresses, shorts, and tops from Milly, Shoshanna, DVF, and more!

Resort 2010: To buy or Not to buy....

It's no secret that resort travel has dwindled. Due to the current economic trends many canceled their yearly trips for 2009- therefor had no need for resort wear. You can still see the remains in many stores who are STILL stuck with inventory from January. Tis the season for buyers to begin looking at resort 2010 lookbooks and linesheets, but the question is- to buy or not to buy. Ticket prices, and hotel rates have significantly decreased attempting to lure those high end travelers once again.
2010 resort season does not look like it will be the same as 3 or 4 seasons prior, but the good news is that it can't be as bad as it was in 2009. SO- the possible solution to the buyers dilema is buy small, and buy safe.
