If You Buy These Alice + Olivia Pants, You Need To Work Them Like Kate Hudson Did
I don't love a lot of female celebrities--the Kardashians drive me nuts and find a lot of the Hollywood actresses to be irritating (sorry, Anne Hathaway), but I actually really, really like Kate Hudson.

Wondering How The Heck To Wear Wide Leg Pants? Allow Jessica Alba To Demonstrate
Jessica Alba was certainly not hiding from the paparazzi when she stepped out wearing these Alice + Olivia Pleated Wide Leg Trousers ($298) in bright coral, paired with a simple A.L.C. Dale Top ($325). Her flashy wide-leg trousers are a bold move for the natural mommy but we love the bright, flowy look - and we think you can totally pull them off. Keeping the top simple, whether it is Ms. Alba's $325 one or not, is key. Also, you will need some heels. Bold enough to try it out for yourself? Shop Jessica's pants below!

Can You Tell Which White Embroidered Dress Costs $300 More Than The Other?
A white dress is a staple for summer, an essential for your wardrobe besides the obvious bathing suit and flip flops. It only makes sense that every major clothing company would be designing little white dresses for the warm season. And while some may be designing, others are following their lead. Both of these dresses seem similar in their designs, with their high necks and delicate embroidery. But if you look close enough, the embroidery is different. Now, can you tell the difference between the two dresses? Answer: On the left side we have the BB Dakota Sibley Dress ($65.99), a very cheap price compared to the Alice + Olivia Vinny Embroidered Cotton-Poplin Mini Dress ($440). They look identical, right? Either way, both are great finds and a must-have for the summer season. Test yourself some more with this star print button down test, look-a-like Mara Hoffman dresses, and these polka dot cosmetic case.
Alice + Olivia Designed The Cutest Starbucks Mugs Ever
Earlier this week we told you that Alice + Olivia was collaborating with Starbucks, and now the collection is here! As we said, it includes the limited-edition Double Wall Ceramic Mug ($19.95) in Alice + Olivia's classic black and white stripes with a mini tutu around it. Totally adorbs. And if you thought things couldn't get cuter, you're wrong. The Gift Pack ($39.99) features the tumbler AND a Barista Bear. Yes, that is a teddy bear dressed as what we imagine would be a fancy Parisian Starbucks barista. This is totally the perfect gift for any gal, whether you're a coffee addict or love A+O.

Alice + Olivia Dressed Up Tumblers In Tutus And Bowties For Its Starbucks Collab
Following designers like Rodarte, Charolette Ronson, and Jonathan Adler, Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet is the next brand to collaborate with Starbucks. The designer is creating a limited-edition line of ceramic tumblers, and a cute little teddy bear too (it's called a Barista bear). Bendet's idea was that when Moms ran into Starbucks to get a cup of coffee, there would be something there for the kids too. So sweet. And staying true to Alice + Olivia's style, the collection will have the brand's standard black and white stripes with a touch of gold. Oh yeah, there are some bow ties, tutus, and berets in the mix too. We're thinking they had a little Parisian influence when designing the collection. The barista bear totally looks like a gondolier. All the products will sell for $19.95 and you can get your very own at starbucksstore.com starting this Friday.

Alice + Olivia Want You To Be A Total Betty Next Fall In Their Clueless-Inspired Skirt Suit
It may be a little early to get excited about Pre-Fall 2013 collections, but what-ever. Alice + Olivia’s new lookbook had us full of 90s nostalgia when we spotted this skirt suit that is like, so Dionne from Clueless. Stacey Bendet’s newest outing may be said to reflect 60s-Era British mod with lots of stripes, boucle and schoolboy plaid—but this tartan-patterned look screams 1995 Noxzema ad played to the tune of “Kids in America.” Though not all of us can have Cher’s digitalized dream closet—which is still cool today, by the way—in a few months time, we will be able to snag one of her (and Dionne’s) iconic looks. Until then, we’ll just have to dig up our old Cranberries CD and wait patiently for the line to launch. Want more previews? Check out Kate Spade Saturday’s pre-fall sneak peek, get excited about Victoria Beckham’s e-commerce site and look through the Miss Wu lookbook.
Alice + Olivia Introduces A Range Of Handbags You’ll Carry All Year ‘Round
Alice + Olivia's Stacey Bendet may have crafted her spring 2013 collection with a 1950s picnic-going ingenue in mind, what with all the polka-dotted pedal pushers and ultra-feminine fit-and-flare frocks, but all we couldn't help but turn our attention to something a bit more subtly chic: the accessories. For the first time in her brand's 10-year history, Bendet is expanding her brand to include handbags, introducing three styles for day and two clutches for evening. Rejoice! “I like doing things one step at a time,” Bendet told WWD, explaining that she wanted to perfect her craft before debuting a new category. “I’m a part of all of it. If we’re too scattered, I can’t give my full attention.” As expected, each style encompasses Alice + Olivia's signature retro-girly aesthetic. The three handbag styles, named the Olivia, See and D, will come in five different colors and reptilian skins (like snake and lizard!) and start at $495, while the clutches, which look to be available in a multicolored floral, a flame orange-red, and a sequined emerald green (this time, as a pillbox style), will start at $220 — not bad for off-the-runway accessories! You can expect these to be in stores in early 2013, but we'll give you a heads up as soon as they arrive. Want more fashion news?

You Can Pre-Order Dianna Agron’s Van Gogh-Inspired Alice + Olivia Dress Now
Looks like Dianna Agron has quite the green thumb when it comes to picking out dresses. She wore an Alice + Olivia 'Reese' Pleated Frock ($495) for her appearance on The View that was covered in navy and yellow sunflowers, which kind of reminds us of Van Gogh's artworks. But this isn't the first time Agron has flaunted floral. Last time, she was seen wearing this Anthropologie x Tracy Reese frock bedecked in a garden-theme graphic that also hints at another classic artist. It also seems like the actress has a thing for vintage-like silhouettes, which we can't complain about (she looks adorable!). Perhaps she's holding on to the last bits of summer before the leaves turn and the flowers stop blooming. Debbie Downer moment, yes—but at least we can play make-believe through dressing up.

Serena, Er, Blake Lively Likes Her Tops Cropped & Her Pumps Embellished

While the idea of each item put together as a whole can come off as "a lot of look," the entire ensemble goes perfectly together. Wear each piece separately to make a total statement. Alice + Olivia Mandy Chain Crop Top ($165, on sale from $330) Christian Louboutin Bollywoody Suede Pump ($2,795) We love how Lively paired her crazy-embellished top and shoes with a long and flowy printed maxi skirt—in prints, no less.

We Loved Jessica Alba’s Alice + Olivia Sweater So Much, We Made It Ourselves
Jessica Alba can do no wrong in our eyes. Putting all super moms to shame, she runs an organic baby line, stars in action-packed movies and makes regular appearances on our site for her celebrity style (can you blame us? Have you seen her collection of colored jeans?).

SEE our slideshow above for instructions on how to make your own sequined tie sweater No strangers to DIYs (have you seen our 5 DIYs You Can Do At Your Desk post?!), we have decided to recreate her look before it has even hit stores at just a fraction of the price (Alice + Olivia sweaters typically range between $200-$400).
