Happy Friday!
Let's go!
Jay says, "I came across these cute shoes that Dania Ramirez is wearing..."

"...Could you please tell me who makes these shoes, and where I could get them?"
Sure! Dania is wearing these $645 Moschino T-Strap Peep Toe Sandals...
They used to be available at, but seems they're sold out!
If you want, try hitting up for stores, or slip these Betseyville Women's Valentin Sandals on for a similar look...
...Bonus, they're only $90 at
Next up Nicky says, "I came across this picture of Rihanna on 106 & Park sporting the flyest shoes I've seen this year..."
"...Please tell me that you know the designer of these shoes and where they can be purchased! And if they're expensive, maybe you can find something similar? I really need them in my life!"
Well, I can tell you they're expensive! Rihanna's wearing these straight off the catwalk Balenciaga Spring 2008 Warrior Sandals...
...unless you're Rihanna, they may be a little out of budget. It's hard to find something exact, but you can get a similar gladiator look with these $130 Jeffrey Campbell Liza Sandals...
...get this pair at
Subira says, "I saw a pic of Beyonce in this splendiferous yellow dress while out with her boo this weekend, and I MUST have something like it! Like Beyonce, I am curvy but am not a fan of draping myself in all black..."
"I'm a small on top but large on the bottom, 5'10...can you help??"
Try these for a Beyonce like look:
1. Max Studio Dip Dyed Cotton Voile Tank Dress, $48. 2. Aqua Women's Jersey & Eyelet Dress, $88. 3. Milly Sun Embroidery Valetta Dress, $311.
Now for some wardrobe queries!

Worine says, "I just bought these fierce platform peep toes and I need an oversized red clutch to finish the look. However, I cant seem to find one...can you help??"
Try these:
1. Cynthia Rowley Lydia Oversized Patent Clutch, $195. 2. Linea Pelle Crimson Leather Angie Clutch, $72. 3. Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Clutch, $325. 4. Lacroix Red Suede Handbag, $192.
Next, Bukky says, "My birthday is in a week and I've yet to get a dress. I'm a HUGE lover of animal prints and I found this beauty on Forever 21:"
"I'm planning to get it, BUT I don't know what shoes/accesory to wear with it...Can you help me achieve my dream outfit?"
Sure! As superstar intern Charlé said in this post, it's safest to rock animal prints with either black or red:
Take a cue from Worine above, and pop on an oversized clutch in those colors. Complete the look with these sandals:
1. Stuart Weitzman Exciting Shoes in Red Patent, $149. 2. Guess Ollioule Evening Sandal, $99. 3. Pleaser Women's Chic Sandals, $90.
Those Stuart Weitzman's are fierce by the way. I might have to get those!
Lastly, Cass says, "I need help! I'm going to an amusement park with my boyfriend and his teenage girls."
I dont know what to wear! How can I keep cool yet avoid looking like a teeny-bopper?
When dressing for an amusement park, it's better to focus on what not to wear. Don't rock a skirt unless you want to flash the crowds below on the roller coaster. Don't wear heels or uncomfortable shoes--those lines are brutal!! Lastly, don't wear jeans or anything too hot. Comfort is key, so do wear a t-shirt, tank, or polo with capris or shorts. If you're not a sneaker girl, go for stylish options. And try to wear something bright and photogenic for those cute pictures! A few suggestions:
1. Ultimate Tank in Stretch Solids, $12. 2. Ralph Lauren Country Club Polo, $80. 3. Fashion Bomb T-Shirt, $21. 4. Forever 21 Three Button Denim Short, $20. 5. Morgan Low Rise Skinny Short White, $29.50. 6. Charmer Knee Short in Denim, $111. 7. Puma Sabadella Sneaker, $65. 8. Adidas Gold Sneakers, $98.
Have fun!
I'm going to NJ for the wknd...maybe I can convince my cousins to hit up Six Flags as well!
Have great weekends!
