Just when it seemed that Jessica Simpson had finally found lasting love, another of the singer’s relationships has ended on a sour note. Simpson and Tony Romo, a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys , first started dating in November 2007. The relationship seemed to sail smoothly, with Simpson and Romo going on double dates and attending her sister Ashlee’s wedding in May 2008. The relationship recently ended abruptly, with Romo banning Simpson from his residential complex. The ban apparently wasn’t necessary, as Simpson reportedly paid $19,000 to have all of her belongings shipped to her from his residence overnight. To make matters worse for Simpson, two of her ex loves – Nick Lachey and John Mayer – have made it a point to tell the press they do not want her back. Ouch! Hopefully, Jessica will eventually find a relationship that works.
It looks like Britney Spears has come back from the edge of crazy – hopefully for good. Her father, Jamie Spears, has been in charge of her affairs since the judge appointed him conservator several months ago. After Britney’s transformation from a head-shaving, rehab-hopping mess to a girl with a new man and her own tour, sources say Britney’s father is ready to give Britney back control of her life. Although he can’t ask the judge to end the conservatorship, he can ask the judge to review it and determine if it is still necessary. Sources say that should happen once her current tour comes to an end.
Singing sensation Miley Cyrus may have her moments of teenage indiscretion, but that’s nothing compared to the frightening crazy of her most recent stalker. 53-year-old Georgia resident Mark McLeod is obsessed with Miley, and recently made some frightening statements to police in Georgia. McLeod says he wants to marry Miley, has mailed her two diamond rings and has more than 2,000 pictures of her on his computer. He claimed that Miley had asked him to come see her. Officers became especially concerned when McLeod said “I will…be with Miley. We’re supposed to be together and (the cops) couldn’t stop it.” Police in Georgia immediately contacted the Los Angeles Police Department (where Miley lives) to advise them of the potential threat.
Our very own Fred M., while in Kentucky, decided to do a video description at the same time as our CEO, Tony Hsieh . Fred was our first buyer here at Zappos, and his title is currently…No Title. His “No Title” position enables him to oversee a variety of departments at Zappos. Fred is a big fan of boots, and here he gives us the skinny on a nice little pair I’d like to own.
Dressing stylishly is about much more than the perfect pair of jeans, although that’s a great place to start. It’s about putting the right pieces together to make a great outfit that can go from one setting to another with only a couple of changes, and the right accessories.
Let’s start with shopping and lunch with your girlfriends. These great jeans are 7 for All Mankind high waist boot cut jeans in a stretch denim with dark wash, designed to flatter your figure, and to be fashion forward while making a nod to fashion’s past. Top it with this chic tie neck A-line top in a dark sapphire from BCB Generation.
Add a funky jacket like this Gaultier in off-white that curves in to the waist and flares out to the bottom back. The double floret button front adds to its appeal, as do the puffed sleeves. Yes, it’s shorter than the top – that’s OK. The perfect day shoes are ankle boots from Charlie One Horse by Lucchese with a cushioned insole and a two and a half inch heel. Make this outfit really pop with this Damascus Satchel in a spring-time violet, with enough room for wallet, shades, and even a bottle of water.
To change this outfit for an evening out with your significant other, just switch to a Robert Rodriguez jacket in Carbon, with a two button closure and shawl collar that lets the lovely neckline of your top be seen. The three-quarter inch sleeves are accented with double buttons for an extra touch of style. Change your shoes for evening to a pair of sexy gladiator sandals from Promiscuous, in black patent. The final touch? These feminine and oh-so-sexy marcasite and pearl drop earrings from Judith Jack. Keep the satchel because it adds that touch of brightness that gets you noticed.
Styling it is not that hard, you just need the right pieces with great accessories, and you too can be runway ready!
