I Found Love Through A Random Click

While researching my "Tango Into Tangerine" post, I encountered a brand with which I was previously unfamiliar and with which I was instantly infatuated. Madison Harding; a collection founded upon the principals of amazing styling, great quality, and price which does not exceed a month's rent; is absolutely exquisite. You should not only view each of their thirty creations, especially the fabulous quartet below, via; you should purchase a pair this evening.

These adorable 'Suzie' wedge sandals will pair perfectly with a cute tank and maxi skirt and fun bangles and earrings.

Potentially my favorite pair of Madison Harding (hardest decision of my life), were these 'Dolly' platform heels. Spectacular, yet super sweet, they will splendidly compliment an alluring little white dress or the simplest top and jeans.

These 'Gayle' suede caged sandals are a must have summer statement shoe made for elevating the volume of a glitzy top and your sassiest pair of jeans.

Select these 'Ash' woven leather sandals and conclude your most casual sunshine ensemble which obviously should start with a flirty skirt or jean shorts and subdued accessories.

The Spice For Competition

Fashion Star's sixth week watchword was variety as the aspiring designers challenged themselves with concepts as tempting as a cyanide and mahogany splinters cocktail. Ultimately, Kara Laricks and Luciana Scarabello scored their second six figure offers; Ross Bennett and Ronnie Escalante scored their second consecutive offers; and Barbara Bates creation may have been Winter Kate inspired, but the Chicago native's collection has Shady Limited's future.

Nzimiro Oputa may still perceive women's bodies as "weird," but his fabulous mini ($30) should score as high with female shoppers as the piece scored with H&M.

Ross Bennett was the second selection of H&M with a sexy two piece lingerie set which your significant other will crave almost as much as you will crave the price, a delicious $15.
Luciana Scarabello's second sale is as monetarily and stylish impressive as her initial triumph. This adorable Cropped Collarless Metallic Jacket, the choice of Macy's, costs only $99.

Ronnie Escalante's classic, simple one piece suit is not only appropriate for any physique, the mysteriously transparent front detail is a banquet for the imagination. Christen your summer with a purchase of this suit inside Macy's ($89).
Kara Laricks and Saks should transition their status from "in a relationship" to "engaged" as she and the retailer consorted for the fourth occasion with this layered Chiffon Dress ($375).

The Moment We've Wanted

FINALLY! The announcement America has awaited, coveted, envisioned, imagined, and visualized... Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are engaged. In honor of the most anticipated nuptials since Academy Award and Golden Globe recipient Grace Kelly wed Monaco's Prince Rainier III, I present a quartet of Brangelina's grandest moments and one perfect for the family album.

Hollywood's most glamorous pair rocked the 2009 Cannes Film Festival with the prospective bride radiant in a nude Versace gown and the Inglorious Basterds star mysteriously simple in black tie.
Obviously, Angelina's emerald Versace, my favorite gown ever worn by the thrice Golden Globe awardee, was required within this montage. The Girl, Interrupted star amplified her spectacular ensemble with Robert Procop jewelry and an accessory every woman wishes they could purchase, the handsome Brad.

Attending the Producers Guild Awards, Brad and Angie sparkled with the soon to be Mrs. Pitt, whose directorial debut In The Land of Blood and Honey won the prestigious Stanley Kramer Award, resplendent in a black lace cut out Michael Kors.

Angelina, a master tigress even while pregnant with twins Vivienne and Knox, gleams in Max Azria with her future better half by her side.

Carefree and casual with progeny Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, and the aforementioned twins, the Killing Them Softly star sports a zip hoodie and jeans, while his fiance flutters in an adorable tan top and black knee length skirt.
