So Who is Zoe Saldana?
New Jersey native Zoe Saladana has always had a knack for the entertainment industry. The 33 year old model/actress first started her career as a ballet dancer in the Dominican Republic and later relocated to New York to begin her acting career. With dancing and acting both under her belt, she landed her first major role in Center Stage. From there, she began starring in major films like Pirates of the Carribean, The Terminal, Guess Who, Star Trek, and Avatar. She has also graced the cover of several fashion magazines as a style icon (with the help of her stylist Petra Flannery), not to mention she is on the September issue of Latina Magazine (Zoe is Puerto Rican and Domenican). Outside of the entertainment industry, Zoe has also become a pioneer in digital media as a founding partner and investor in both Juggernaut Investments and MYFDB.com

For my sister V!
I won't lie, I'm not a huge fan of the traditional UGG Boots, however I will say that I love their leather boots very much! Being a Colorado native, I've always hated the classic UGG Boots paired with a short denim skirt or jean shorts. It's such a contradicting outfit. Are you cold or hot? To make matters worse, UGG has released UGG Australia 'Classic Sparkles' Boots.
As the picture above states, these were one of Oprah's favorite things for 2010....but why? Even with a gorgeous evening gown, they're not attractive. If you want an UGG boot to wear with a mini denim skirt, try something like....
The Sofia Boot $200
or for a Cher and Dionne Clueless 90's look....
The Aubree Boot $325
Not all UGGs are UGly. I think the Arianni shoe is one of my guilty pleasures!
I would love to rock these with skinny jeans and a feather headdress. Yes cliche but so what! It reminds me of Cherokee Bat, a character from the Weetzie Bat Series by Francesca Lia Block

Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen Present:
The Row Fall 2011 Collection
It all started with a quest for the perfect t-shirt. Ashley and Mary Kate Olsen have always been well respected in the fashion industry and with a brand like The Row, why shouldn't they be? Their haute brand, launched in 2007, started with the perfect t-shirt and from there evolved to "a brand that offers an updated concept of bespoke tailoring to modern day classics". The inspiration for the brand name came from the historic Savile Row. Savile Row is a shopping street in Mayfair, London that is known for men's bespoke tailoring.
Five years later, the line has expanded to tailored separates, outerwear, and accessories (sunglasses and handbags). The line is pre-dominantly produced in the USA with the exception of special knit wear and handbags that are produced in Italy. Along with producing their first Fall/Winter collection, the Olsens will be collaborating with TOMS Shoes and participating as members on The Council of Fashion Designers of America. I'm looking forward their Spring line already!
