A refreshing sight to see, Asian American actress Brenda Song is best known for being a part of the Disney family. She's cute, bubbly sophisticated and actually works for her part in the young Hollywood crowd. Brenda Song started show business at an early age and I think she will become the next Asian American super starlet. She is full of style and has caught my eye on many red carpet occasions. It only made sense I replicate her look. Brenda's style is fun, young, colorful and full of pattern. Her look can be pulled off by anyone between the ages of 16-25 years old. So let me break it down for you:

Brenda's Evening Look:
Brenda is in a red one shoulder dress with black lace detail. This dress is great for homecoming dances, a night out to dinner, a benefit event or any other event where you would need to dress in subtle sexy sophistication. I love this dress because a bold red dress needs to be a part of everyone's wardrobe. Red is a powerful and sexy color, but the way that this dress is cut, it isn't slutty or overly sexy. It's age appropriate, but you'd still draw attention and turn heads in this number. I found an exact replica and also an alternative if you would like to just be inspired by this look.

Brenda's Young and Girly Look:
This is a very young and fresh look. Brenda's dress has variations of pink with a corseted top and pinch draped skirt. To not draw attention away from the colors and the style, a simple gold pump was paired with this dress. I took this inspiration and found some corseted dresses that had a poofed skirt. Also, since booties are in and I love them so much, I found metallic gold booties that would rock up the look without being too hard. I see this dress in a early evening party setting. I found some dresses that are similar in color and style that would be great to homecoming dances in the springtime or an afternoon brunch with girlfriends. However you choose to interpret the look, make it your own and wear it with confidence!

Brenda's "Great for the Office" Look:
Love this ensemble that Brenda is wearing! It's great for work, it's comfortable, sophisticated, but still fun. The chiffon pattern blouse is the center of attention. Find chiffon blouses that have you favorite pattern, pop it with some color and have fun with it. Go all out with the top because you're going to be pairing it with a black structured skirt and a solid black belt. If you're wearing this to work, you can keep it simple with simple black pumps. But for extra flair, try a more conservative bootie with stockings. Fabulous!

Brenda's Daytime Fun Look:
Hot pink shorts with a black blouse, it doesn't get any easier and it doesn't get any cuter! This is probably gonna easily replicated by going to any teeny bopper mom and pop fashion store or Forever 21. Make sure that the shorts are structured and the top is a little more flowy. Any black blouse will work as long as we have the contrast of structure vs. loose fitting. This look is great for running errands, going out during the day. It's comfortable and simple, but unique in style. Pair is with black pumps of studded shoes for that extra detail.

Andreia Chaves Mirrior Invisible Shoes

 

Can I just take a second out and admire this hot item! I don't know if you've seen the "invisible shoes" designed by Andreia Chaves. It's a shoe made of a wedge of mirrors that are made to look like your feet has disappeared. They are as comfortable as they look and will probably only show up in a museum or in a Lady Gaga video.

However! I found a great replica from this inspiration and it is something that you can actually purchase and be able to walk in. I give to you, the Thakoon Mirror Mosaic Ankle Boots! It was $1195, now on sale for $597. Still a hefty price tag, but you can see that there was effort in designing these shoes and I totally appreciate that! These shoes are Yummalicious!

Talk about something girly, flirty, fun, and adds a little character to any wardrobe. This season, opt for a more unique gift for yourself or someone you love, and get a ruffle handbag. My sister bought one from Aldo and she gets compliments on her handbag ALL THE TIME! So much that I wanted one myself and she was nice enough to buy me one for my birthday. The great thing about this bag is that it adds a lot of texture and flair and you don't have to worry about sporting an expensive brand name in order to make a big impression. The price range anywhere from $15-$300 and on up. So there is something for everyone on every budget.

Now, in no way shape or hp/viagra-lowest-prices/' title='viagra lowest prices'>viagra lowest prices form are these accessories cheap. They are the latest in technology and meant to be very impressive. So, without further adieu, in no particular order, I give you this season top 3 high tech fashion accessory - MUST HAVES!

Calvin Klein USB Memory Frame
calvin klein usb sunglassesI don't know about you, but I ALWAYS loose my USB memory stick. I'm glad that saving files has gone from a big floppy disk to a small stick, but sometimes, it's just too small. I end up having to buy them over and over again. What I do know is, when I purchase a nice pair of sunglasses, those babies are with me always. They're either in my car or I carry it around in my purse. Apparently, I'm not the only fashionista with this dilemma. So, they've come up with a pair of sunglasses where you can detach the frame and it turns into a USB stick. How cool is that? It's great for students and professionals alike. You can hide your serious business self in a pair of sleek sunglasses. And, it's valued at about $200, so it's not cheap, but it's not any different than buying a nice pair of designer glasses. I love it!

The Orb Bluetooth
orb bluetooth headsetI am already in love with jewelry. I have a jewelry armoire that is literally busting at the seams.  I'm also loving the bluetooth. It's convenient and necessary. I've even seen woman wear their bluetooths like jewelry by covering it in rhinestones. Well, this marriage of fashion and technology is clever. Probably one of my favorites that I've found. It's a bluetooth that doubles as a ring. If you're not into having a bluetooth glued to your ear all day (I most certainly am not), you simply twist the piece into a ring and wear it as a sleek piece of jewelry. Brilliant! Not only is it clever, it also provides high quality bone conduction audio. AND, if you're into the bling bling, they are going to come out with special editions with gemstones on it. You'll have to pre-order this item, because it's not coming out til January 2010. If someone pre-ordered this for me for Christmas, I would say it would be worth the wait! Depending on the model you buy, plan on spending anywhere form $129 - $175.

Vivienne Tam Digital Clutch Computer
hp mini vivienne tam laptopI would have LOVED one of these in design school. It seems like such a simple concept and I can't believe it just now is coming out. Designer Vivienne Tam has blown up with these designer digital computer laptops that basically look like clutches. They are colorful, girly, and I want one. If you were looking to get your girlfriend a laptop this year, consider getting her something she can wear to spice up any outfit! It's small and light weight so you can take it with you everywhere. It's definitely a high tech piece with lots of style and the price isn't bad. If you're in the market for a laptop, you're probably looking to spend at least $500 for a regular PC. Well, a Vivienne Tam will fall into that range and can go even cheaper on ebay. I would just love to buy a used one of these for like $350 or so and take it with me to coffee shops so I wouldn't have to use my lug around my 15" laptop.
