FASHION ...We Can't Get Enough!!

As folks recover from last night's glorious and fabulous (especially for those in NYC), nationwide Fashion's Night Out (Patricia Field pictured at left), a real kick in the butt to stimulate the retail industry, folks are slamming blogs and sites across cyberspace that have their finger on the pulse of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week which continues on into next week. Definitely stay close to The Fashion Bomb because as Claire (pictured at right) mentioned on this week's episode of Bag Ladies (check out what you may have missed On Demand), she is gonna be providing regular and frequent updates on that which is walking down the runway. And why not have a one up on everybody else as to what trends are gonna be hot for next year. If you're like me, you're ready to start stockpiling now. Here are some hot looks from Gwen Steffani's LAMB. and BCBG Max Azria. And this is just a taste of what has debuted on the runways thus far for Spring 2010!

A few new styling tips from this week's Madame Myra's Top 10 ...

The NEW rules of fashion!!

New Rule 1
Soften a structured look with lingerie-inspired elements.

New Rule 2
Build an outfit around a unique article of clothing.

New Rule 3
Flaunt one stretch of skin at a time.

New Rule 4
Mix ladylike pieces with something super sexy.

New Rule 5
Make gray your go-to neutral.

New Rule 6
Refuse to accessorize a dress that speaks for itself.

New Rule 7
Add edge to a classic look.

New Rule 8
Don't match your shoes and belt...but keep them in the same color family.
And for those of you who are where we (Bag Ladies) are, we are fastly approaching DC Fashion Week so definitely stay tuned to next week's show on Tuesday at 7p EST for updates and details on upcoming events and shows. And check us out OnDemand at for whatever you might've missed this week. Until then ...
