Hostess Kelly Ripa braved the wet grass in Hunter Boots at the 15th annual Super Saturday shopping event.

InStyle magazine, Kelly Ripa and Donna Karan hosted the Rolls Royce of all sample sales…the 15th annual Super Saturday. Despite the gray skies and damp green grass, the fabulous and frugal still gathered in East Hampton, N.Y., to support ovarian cancer, score designer digs and have plenty of shoe chat. I love that haute moms June Ambrose and Tiffani Thiessen made it a family affair and brought their children. Hey, they’re smart to teach the kiddies early on how to save a buck and help another in need. And although The Real Housewives from Beverly Hills to New York may have a lot of bling on Bravo, they also don’t mind a bargain as they joined the shopping fun as well. Here are some of my top tips on how to master the art (yes, there is an art) to shopping sample sales. Only the stylish and strong survive.

Ballet Flats

This Friday, Step Up Revolution hit theaters, boasting sexy dancers and mind-blowing moves on the big screen. As an ode to the film, I thought I would take a minute to appreciate my favorite dance-inspired apparel so you all can get psyched, and stylish, for this summer flick! As you can probably attest to, ballet flats are one of the most functional and comfortable items to stem from the dance scene. Aside from their obvious benefits—you can run in them, you don’t fall when there’s uneven ground, you get far fewer blisters …the list goes on—they’re also the perfect casual-but-cute look year round. Keep reading for all the deets on which JustFab ballet flats I love and how to wear them this season!

Elle and Blair- Teen Choice Awards 2011

This weekend is the Teen Choice Awards, and I couldn’t be happier! Blair and I have been nominated for Choice Web Star for the second year in a row, which is incredibly exciting. Last year was the most amazing experience, and everything about the day was special. It was also incredible that I was able to share that experience with my little sister, Blair, and I think it brought us even closer (even though we are already best friends!).

Bastille Day Feature Image

Happy Bastille Day, francophones! In honor of France’s Fete Nationale, which commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison on July 14, 1789, (starting the French Revolution), I decided to pay homage to some of the country’s most influential fashion houses. Similar to our 4th of July holiday, the French celebrate this occasion with such patriotic festivities as fireworks and a military parade (the oldest and largest in Europe!) on Paris’ famed Champs-Elysees avenue. But enough about tradition. Let’s break out the champagne and say ‘Salut‘ to these iconic designers.

The scene at the Jessica Paster Summer Launch Party for her new JustFab collection!

We all love those special days when business and pleasure mingle and life feels extra sparkly and fun. This past Friday was one of them. My gracious girlfriend, Brooke Davenport, and I hosted an intimate pool party at her lovely home to launch my summer collection of JustFab shoes and handbags. 

Me and Rosie are all smiles!

It felt like being in style heaven as I walked down New York’s famed 5th Avenue past stores like Christian Dior and Chanel to the mecca of all maternity stores: Destination Maternity. Rosie Pope, maternity expert and star of  Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels gathered all of the pretty preggers together to celebrate the launch of her new collection for A Pea in the Pod.

Blair's Must-Have Summer Beauty Products

A few days ago, I opened the door to my apartment and instantly thought to myself, “Why in the world is it so hot today?” I looked down at my outfit, which consisted of dark wash skinny jeans, a baby pink tank top, cream cardigan and pastel-print lightweight scarf. Unfortunately I didn’t have time to go back in and change, or I would have been late (aka even more late than I already was) for a meeting.

4th of July

It’s the 4th of July and everyone is out in all their festive, red, white and blue glory. Whether that means barbecues, bars or beaches, this is a day meant for celebrating in style! I’ll be hanging out with my friends and family, and then heading to the beach for some fabulous fireworks. I obviously want to dress to impress (hello cutoff denim shorts, a white tank and bright read heels!), and hopefully you do too! I’m not suggesting that you take your look so far that you’re a walking representation of the American flag, but I’m a huge fan of combining a couple of colorful touches to show your love for the good ol’ U.S. of A. Keep reading for the JustFab low down on how to make the right, bright impression this 4th of July!
