Gridiron Fabulous

The NFL Draft’s first round occurred Thursday and while my boyfriend was scrutinizing each prospect’s forty yard speed and vertical jump results, I was obsessed with their hues and patterns. Here are a trio who heeded Jim Rome’s formula for permanent success: Look Good, Feel Good; Feel Good, Play Good’ Play Good, Get Paid Good.

Stephon Gilmore, the Buffalo Bills choice with the tenth overall selection, appears as striking as the red, white, and blue he will rock this autumn. The South Carolina cornerback's ingenious ash colored suit is enhanced perfectly via a crisp light blue shirt and plaid tie.

Mark Barron, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers choice with the sixth overall selection and the initial safety chosen, provided the evening's premiere ensemble; a splendid soft gray suit coat; black, white, and gray shirt, and purple tie.

Trent Richardson, the Cleveland Browns choice with the third overall selection and the second Alabama athlete within my triad, flaunts this fantastic tan suit and chocolate brown tie. My boyfriend, an LSU fan, will hate when I say this, Roll Tide!

Faith & Consequences

After Nicole Richie, Jessica Simpson, and John Varvatos proffered the aspiring designers both concepts and inspiration, half of the entrants harnessed the mentor's advice, while the other half scorned the buyers for not relishing their vision. Ultimately, Luciana Scarabello became the first with purchases from each of the three retailers and Sarah Parrott learned if only one retailer accepts you, you are the apparel equivilent of Dough In The Box.

Luciana Scarabello, not only achieved the milestone previously mentioned, she additionally became only the third combatant with four-plus overall sales and only the second combatant with four consecutive sales. The Magic City native enticed H&M with this eye popping, yet exquisitely feminine mini ($40).

Orly Shani, following consecution programs ensnared within the bottom pair, finally recorded her third sale, inducing H&M with this chic and sassy blue sleeveless mini ($35).

Ronnie Escalante, this week's sole selection of Macy's, registered his third consecutive sale with this cosmolitan one shoulder gown ($169), perfect for any event and perfect with statement jewelry and heels.
