Project Fab'rik!

If you're reading this, I think it's safe to assume you're a fan of Lifetime's series "Project Runway." And I don't know about you, but Tim Gunn is my fairy fashion godfather, and I live and die by his style rules only! So imagine the surprise of fab'rik Midtown ladies Angelique and Kara when season 2 contestant Nick Verreos walked in our door on Tuesday! Though Nick was not the winning designer, he certainly had a winning attitude that kept us tuned in every week (and a winning goodness!) He has since gone on to become the style consultant in the webseries "The Victory Project", an online video diary profiling 4 women in different cities who are looking to shape up, slim down and dress up!

Nick came to our store on Tuesday looking for outfits for "The Victory Project" contestants Nikki & Amanda. He loved our new cropped black blazers and playful jackets for working girl Nikki, reminding us that the pop of color should be worn underneath to create a more dramatic effect (and it can bring the eyes up if you're worried about your thighs or mid-section). For bride-to-be Amanda, Nick singled out this one-shoulder MM Couture by Miss Me dress for her rehearsal dinner choice (also perfect for you wedding attendees out there). When it comes to shoes, Nick loved our tribal wedges citing that neutral heels can elongate the leg and increase posture!

While beauty is certainly from within, Nick reminded us and his Victory Project contestants that feeling good about yourself is all about staying positive and feeling comfortable & confident in your clothes. Let fab'rik's personal stylists help you with your own Victory Project and keep track of Nick's progress at It was an honor to have him the store, and we'll let you know when the episode airs!

I can't believe Nick Verreos stopped by! My jaw would've dropped. The pattern on those tribal wedges is so fun, and they are definitely a great pick to add some character to an outfit!

Kiki, we also have the wedges in a black motif! They're such a steal at $32! I think the ones featured above look so Missoni-ish, don't you!?
