Looks of the Week

SJP looking divine in white Prabal Gurung. This is still a very 'Carrie' look while remaining flawlessly classic.
I want this dress. I love the colorblock, the colors DKNY chose, and the way the Olivia Palermo styled it. Loves.

Bride-to-be Molly Sims, glowing in this dress & blazer ensemble. Bright blazers are such a great way to add a pop of color!

Gleek, Jayma Mays, in a perfect jeans and flowy blouse combo for one of her recent Smurfs promotional events. Very easy look for even us non-celebs ;)

I love the way Ashlee Simpson styled this adorable animal print dress. The shoe, bag, jewelry combo is spot on. No pun intended ;)

Atlanta Happenings -- by Emma Spear

The end of summer is quickly approaching (or so it seems with all of the new Fall merchandise in the store!) and there are still so many things to see and do! Having trouble thinking of something to do besides lying by the pool to avoid the heat? Well, don't you worry fab'rik addicts-- we've got your covered... literally! We have looked up some of the hottest events occurring in the Atlanta area in the next couple of week AND as a bonus.. we have suggested the perfect outfit for each hot happening!

Lil Wayne with Rock Ross, Far East Movement, Keri Hilson, & Lloyd Concert

August 6th, 2011 7pm

Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood

Buy tickets here

This concert obviously requires a hot and sassy little number. Pair your favorite skinny jeans with a sparkly top and rock (or in this case, rap) the night away!

Making a Mark: Drawings from the Contemporary Collection

Event until August 21, 2011

High Museum of Art

More information here

For more of the sophisticated and artsy occasion, wear a uniquely patterned dress and adorn with a colorful clutch. Why show up looking like a blank canvas? When by just adding some color. others might mistake YOU for a piece of art!

Piedmont Park Summer Arts & Crafts Festival

August 20-21, 2011

Piedmont Park

More information here

Bring out your inner hippie with a floral and flowy top. Just because it's the end of summer doesn't mean this Georgia heat is going anywhere! So try a cute pair of shorts that just might be the trick to staying cool at this outdoor festival!

Dinner and a Movie Date Night


AMC Fork & Screen Buckhead

More information here

A sassy pair of shorts paired with a bright colored shirt will surely make this dinner and a movie date night one to remember. Dolling up shorts is a fun & unique way to spice up an outfit. They'll be rolling out the red carpet the second you get out of the car!

Looks of the Week

Mila Kunis looking red hot at one of her Friends with Benefits premieres. I love the sophistication yet modern edge of this dress.
Jen Aniston looking lovely once again on the red (blue) carpet! I feel like this is a little out of the box for her (especially paired with those funky shoes) which I love. She's been known to migrate towards simple silhouettes in black in the past so I love this different look! Love looks good on ya girl!

Precious Hailee Steinfeld looking so age appropriate in this adorable nude shift & matching accessories!

I'm just loooving Emma Stone's fashion forward red carpet choices. She's forever pushing the envelope without ever teetering on ridiculous-- which is easier said than done.

Ashley Greene looking divine in this diagonal striped dress while at ComicCon with her fellow Twilight co-stars.

Annalynne McCord cute and cusual in this simple blouse and denim look. I especially love the matching necklace to pull the look together!

Transition Tips

One of the most difficult things to master is how to transition your items from one season to the next. After all, this is the best way to get the biggest bang for your buck. I am a big believer in looking at items past what you would expect to wear them with: a summer dress is typically worn with wedges in the summer type. However, the summer dress in the write material & colors can be layered with a cardigan, accessorized with tights, and paired with boots to make the perfect fall outfit.

Enjoy these tips and more from a recent blog!

& don't forget that your favorite fab'rik store is already receiving pre-fall perfect pieces! Come in quick to have your stylist help you put together the ultimate fall wardrobe!

Looks Of The Week

Zoe Saldana, looking fresh and chic in this Lanvin gown at a recent event. I love the out-of-the-box neckline, the print, the fabric. I love how she always keeps things fun and interesting on the red carpet!
The Duchess of Cambridge made the list twice this week. I made a prediction that once she was in the US she would be donning a DVF dress and I was right! I'm happy to see her in a bright kelly green vs her typical navy ensembles she's been wearing a lot lately! Simple, yet elegant!

Another Alexander McQueen stunner. This lilac gown was an excellent choice for the recent BAFTA Awards in Los Angeles. The future queen looked beyond regal in this choice!

Blake Lively chose this flowy Marchesa frock to wear for the BAFTA Awards and to meet Prince William and the Duchess. I thought the silhouette was spot-on and very appropriate for the evening's events.

The Olsen sisters were a fashion trifecta at the Row's accessories launch this week. I love the mixtures of prints, textures, and accessories! So happy that they've parted ways with the overly-billowed outfits!

Looks of the Week

I just couldn't possibly have left this look out this week. Kate Moss' wedding dress may be one of my all-time favorite celebrity wedding dresses. I am in love with the chiffon, the neckline, and most of all the gold details along the hemline. Brilliantly boho bridal.
I am totally planning on doing a Catherine in North America wrap up this week because literally everything she's worn while touring Canada/LA has been phenomenal. I had to include this dress because as usual Kate's understated elegance always shines!

Red carpet amazingness. Oscar de la Renta at his finest. And Emma Watson looking superb during one of her last red carpet walks for the Harry Potter series.

Diane Kruger always looking amazing in Chanel. I love the way theBohemia & Grecian looks coalesce to form such an awesome look.

Anne Hathaway in a simple Little White Dress while previewing Haute Couture fashion shows in Paris.

Looks of the Week

All I have to say is that Rosie Huntington is hitting her red carpet appearances for the Transformers 3 premieres out. of. the. park. I mean she looks so unbelievable in this uber-sexy custom-made Burberry gown. Her hair and makeup compliment the color, fabric, neckline so well. A+.
When Katie first started dating Mr. Cruise her fashion sense went form Abercrombie to Armani. And for the first couple of years of their courtship and marriage she was nailing her looks both on and off the red carpet. Lately she's been on more of a slump to me so this fun LBD is a great way to freshen things up for her!

Kate Moss equals calm, cool, and collected in this laid back look walking around London. This soon-to-be bride always has her casual looks down to a T.

Jen Aniston looking gorgeous as always in this flirty little black dress! She always plays up her awesome legs and figure so well!

LOVE this color. LOVE her hair. And LOVE the shoe choice!!! Beyonce's style is always changing but I am totally diggin' where this look is going! Keep it up B!
