Fashion Star’s summer themed third week saw half of the aspiring designers sprouting $50,000-plus offers while the other half withered upon the runway. Ultimately, six pieces were purchased and Lizzie Parker learned one week your clothes are upon the store’s hangers, the next week you’re hanging out with your clothes at home.
Sarah Parrott was chosen by H&M ($30) for the third consecutive week. This adorable print maxi dress, an exquisite choice for both spring and summer, is perfect for pairing with a smashing pair of wedges and oversized sunnies. Sold out online in an astonishing ten minutes, a limited quantity will be available inside your local H&M tomorrow morning.
H&M astutely chose Nzimiro Oputa for the second consecutive week ($25), as these super awesome striped shorts are great for afternoons spent on and off the beach. Also sold out online, snatch them at your local H&M Wednesday and pair them with a neutral shirt and sandals.
Nikki Poulos scored her initial order with Macy's selection of this jumper ($79). While I am not a jumper's biggest fan, I absolutely love this fabulous lavender color for warm weather. Gorgeous on virtually any skin tone, merge this jumper with a great pair of wedges for the core of a successful ensemble.
Macy's also chose these fresh and fierce floral shorts which were the design of Texas native and Jessica Simpson fav, Ross Bennett ($59). Available in the above floral, green, and pink; these shorts will splendidly compliment any top or blazer. Add a chunky heel or flat and run the town in this sweet and sassy look.
Orly Shani's bright and brilliant ensemble ignited this season's second bidding war, which Saks Fifth Avenue eventually won ($295). This dress should be accesorized with a cute cuff and a dainty necklace and coupled with a pair of heels or wedges for summer. Toss your hair up in a bun and add some stud earrings for a cooler looking effect.
Kara Laricks, the choice of Saks for a second straight episode ($225), showed these plaid pants, perfect for any sophisticated event, as well as meetings, the office, and lunch with friends. Complete the ensemble with a neutral blouse and add cute flats or heels.
