dELiAs Fashion Clothing and Accessories

Most will know by now that I just love dELiAs, the fashion-forward clothing and accessories retailer whose everyday lines are aimed mainly towards teenage girls and young women. As well as their regular sales, I often browse through dELiA's clearance section where you can save Up To 75% Off in their continuing End of Season Clearance and even though quantities are limited, you can usually find something really nice there.

dELiAs | Hot | Sexy | Fashion | T-Shirt | Women | Teen | Girls

Take for instance this cute Chick Side Logo Tee (Item code: 150504). It's on clearance, reduced from $24 down to $9.99 and would look really sexy and chick with a pair of skinnies like the Jemma Low-rise Ultra Skinny (Item code: 151356) reduced down from $48.50 to $24.99, and heels. I just love the pink color and with its chick logo it would make a fun T-Shirt to wear at Easter time. dELiAs has lots of other cute items on sale, so is certainly worth a look.

70% Off Costume National, Italian Fashion

In it's bio of Ennio Capasa, the fashion designer of the Milan-based, fashion design house Costume National, New York Magazine wrote:
Lauded for heralding in the “new Italian design” movement (i.e. hypermodern innovations on classics), Capasa has always been known for his architectural precision in draping men’s and women’s necks, hips, and shoulders with impeccably tailored suiting, trench coats, and casualwear in body-hugging leathers, silk knits, and denim.
And currently, The Fashion Pulse, an online boutique offering blends of upscale emerging fashion designers with established fashion designers, is offering 70% off on a number of Costume National clothing, shoes and handbags. It's not a big range on sale but these fashion pieces are gorgeous and at 70% off, there's some good buys here.
Italian | Designer | Fashion | Costume National | Boot There are a number of items on sale that I really like. The Caramel brown Costume National boot shown here is hot. These must-have boots are made in Italy from 100% Leather with wooden soles and have 2 3/4" heels. There's also some Costume National shoes included in this sale. The Costume National Black Peep Toe Pumps with 3" heels and the Costume National Brown leather strappy sandals are worth a look.
Another fab item is the Italian made and designed, large, signature "Butterfly" Costume National handbag. This Buttery-soft leather bag has a large roomy interior and includes a zipper pocket and 2 interior pockets for cell phone, keys, etc. It has a zipper pull closure and the exterior features two hidden flap pockets with snap closure. Measuring about 20" long, 7 1/2" wide and excluding the handle, about 11" high from zipper to bottom, this Costume National bag fits comfortably on your shoulder. The handle connects to the bag with 2 silver 2" diameter rings with the name "CoSTUME NATIONAL" clearly engraved. The bag is made from 100% Leather and is fully lined in nylon with the words CoSTUME NATIONAL. It's hot at 70% off! There's also a medium signature Butterfly Costume National bag on sale.

Places to Buy Costume National

While the range of items on sale at The Fashion Pulse is rather limited, don't despair as I also found great prices on Costume National designer fashion at a number of other fashion retailers. The online boutique YOOX for example, has an awesome range of Costume National designer fashion on sale and for designer shoes, the online shoe retailer Zappos currently has some great prices and is worth a look. Last but by no means least, as well as Costume National's own stores such as the ones in New York and Los Angeles, if you want to spoil yourself good and proper with the very best in designer fashion then Bergdorf Goodman, one of the BEST department stores in NYC is a great place to wander around aimlessly looking at top designer fashion. The atmosphere at Bergof's is oh so very chic! The Chanel, A Christian Dior, Gucci, Prada, Oh I'm in heaven. However, bargains don't come often at Bergdorf's. But it does have great sales.

Sporty & Sexy, Designer Shirts

In my post, Sporty & Sexy, Salmon Cove, on January 10, I wrote about the apparel brand Salmon Cove, founded by two professional athletes and Cornell graduates, Ben Wallace and Ryan Vesce. Salmon Cove produces a stylish and high quality range of apparel for both men and women, and also great uniforms for competitive teams. The shirts are so good that one of them, the "Premier", has been selected by the Canadian National Sailing Team and the Harvard Polo Club.

Salmon Cove designer tees | men women teen girls

The good news is that Salmon Cove is extending its coupon discount to Chic Alert readers until 3/31/07!! So if you haven't already looked at these tops then I highly recommend that you do. I've got mine, a "Premier" Woman Naples which is in a gorgeous pink with a green collar (see pic above). It's an updated version of the classic polo but with a distinctive forced popped collar. I love the contrasting color on the inside of the sleek, shorter collar. I simply love it and lots ask, "where did you get that shirt?" It's great for just lazying around, on the courts, or out for a jog or stroll. These lifestyle inspired shirts are just so unique and you can easily see from the design, materials and workmanship that they represent high quality.

Visit Salmon Cove to see the available range of styles and colours and remember to use CHICALERT as your discount code when purchasing before 3/31/07 to save $10 off each shirt you buy.

Wednesday, February 07, 2007 - New York Fashion Week Day 3

ELLE Magazine | New York | Fashion Week 2007 New York Fashion Week, Fall 2007 is now well in progress and being a fashionista you will undoubtedly have already started seeing, and will no doubt for some time continue to see, many more runway reviews and televised wrap-ups hitting both the traditional media as well as the new media; watch this space! These will show glimpses of fashion models and fashion designers, as well as both the fashion media and general media reporters and their crews, the celebrities like
Britney Spears at the Baby Phat fashion show gracing the front row limelight, the many fashionistas, hoping to catch a glimpse of the beautiful people, in crowded and barely standing room only areas behind the velvet ropes patrolled by stereotyped security staff, and of course, the paparazzi jostling for the best vantage point and hoping that through their lenses they will snap that one in a million shot of a fashion designer, fashion model or fashion conscious celebrity! Thought of in this way you can easily imagine the hustle and the bustle of the meeting of the like-minded at this fashion extravaganza! However, to many a fashionista this would be too much, and to them it is far more enjoyable and less stressful to see this through the eyes of others like Elle Magazine,! So once again, with a big thanks to Elle Magazine, here's a video wrap-up from with all the action behind the scenes and in the front row of the runway of this fashion extravaganza on Day 3. Here we catch snippets of the collections and insights of the talented fashion designers Lela Rose, Erin Fetherston, Nicole Romano and Phillip Lim.

Fashion Designer, Lela Rose

Texas native and fashion designer Lela Rose starts off by divulging how she is very much inspired by the fabrics. "Everything starts with fabric," Lela says and when you look at her ready-to-wear collection you can easily see why. Beautiful, hand finished fashions in blacks, whites and greys with shots of rich Spring colors including yellow and crimson, each exuding a casual luxury and refinement. The Lela Rose collection can be found at in-store boutiques in Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Stanley Korshak as well as in over 60 specialty fashion boutiques nationwide. Lela Rose can also be found in Nordstrom and Bloomingdales as well as internationally in fashion stores throughout Canada, Taiwan and Japan. For a closer look at the Lela Rose Spring 2007 New York Fashion Week collection, visit

Fashion Designer, Erin Fetherston

The behind the scenes look at the much spoken about fashion designer Erin Fetherston gives us some insight into her wandering stars collection which she herself describes as being "inspired by things nocturnal and the stars and everything can look more beautiful under the moonlight." While I myself am not hot on the whimsical styles in her Spring 2007 fashion collection, without the wizard caps I do like many of the Erin Fetherston outfits, very original, girlish and fun, and yes the "baby dolls on the moon" are very feminine.

Fashion Designer, Nicole Romano

What professional women wouldn't love the Romano collection by notable fashion designer Nicole Romano. Just love her styles, use of bright rich colours and delicate prints. Definitely unique elegance, sensuality, with a strong and playful, flirty and sexy feel about them. It's really no wonder that Nicole Romano is a long time favourite of Sex and the City and loved by so many fashion conscious celebs including Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, Alicia Keyes, Heidi Klum, Lindsay Lohan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Shakira, Britney Spears and Gwen Stefani. The Nicole Romano collection, full of vibrant separates for women wanting to make a fashion statement was presented to a packed audience.

Fashion Designer, Phillip Lim

Gosh after only Day 3 and so many favorites already at this year's New York Fashion Week and here's yet another. Successful fashion designer Phillip Lim's collection of beautiful, chic and elegant designs in soft pristine whites and neutrals demonstrate functional fashion and as succinctly stated by Phillip Lim himself, "every piece has a purpose." Being available in over 250 US boutiques and department stores and represented in 26 countries worldwide Phillip Lim is already a commercial success but there can be little doubt that he will be an even bigger success in the years to come. Photography kindly sponsored by and once again a big thank you to for the fantastic video wrap-ups. I can't wait to see the next installment!

Baby Phat | New York Fashion Week

Back at New York Fashion Week, thanks to, here's a video wrap-up of all the action behind the scenes and in the front row of the catwalk on Day 2.

Baby Phat certainly has an interesting mix on show at this year's event and here's a snap (click on image for full details) of another one of my favorites from the collection. This time on the catwalk, we see a sophisticated outfit with a somewhat Eastern feel. It clearly shows that as well as hip-hop styles, Baby Phat is also into high class fashion.
