When Whitney Port made the move from LA’s “Hills” to document her fashion coming-of-age in “The City,” we rejoiced. We felt Port had more to offer than just the blank stares and backstabbing of her cohort. And while Port’s 20-something escapades were definitely more interesting to watch than Spedi/Justin Bobby/Whoever else ate up screen time on the West Coast, we paid more attention this second season with the addition of Kelly Cutrone. Cutrone is the powerhouse between fashion PR, branding, marketing and production firm People’s Revolution. Known for her no-nonsense attitude, we live for Kelly’s “There’s No Crying In Fashion!” bon mots.
Apparently we’re not the only ones. Cutrone’s reality show “Kell On Earth” premieres on Bravo February 1. Visit Bravo’s blog to catch exclusive video of Cutrone explaining what her show will be like and what audiences will be shocked to learn about the fashion world icon,

When life gets you down, what does one do?
If you’re me and get an email from Rachel Roy offering 30% off during their Friends and Family sale (November 19 – 23), you ignore the inner voice screaming rationalities about your spending and splurge.
Luckily, the splurge wasn’t too bad. Rachel Roy, an amazing designer who specializes in elegant uptown clothing for women, has created a new line for Macy’s called Rachel Rachel Roy. The line is full of young, fresh looks with a downtown edge for girls like you and me who aspire to wear her high price fashions (some pieces in her fall 2009 collection are well over $1,000). Prices for Rachel Rachel Roy dresses, which are of higher quality than something you would find at Target, top out at $129 while blouses and pants are up to $70 and $90.
So what did I end up getting?
Gotta say my goodbyes because I’ll be leaving in eight hours for the lovely (errr…) state of New Mexico to visit the Bandera Volcano and Ice Caves. I’m really excited about the trip, but packing is not going as well. I can never seem to pack for the days I’ll be gone (ex: I think I’ve packed nine shirts for five days) and I always end up packing the most boring things. This is lame, but I need to know…what are your packing tips?
Wish me luck! xoxo Monica
What’s that saying? As one grows up, it’s time to put away childish things? That adage came to mind as I watched a video for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s newest line for JC Penney, Olsenboye. It harkened back to their days as mini-moguls creating lines for Walmart back in the 90s. Oh Mary-Kate and Ashley, say it ain’t so!
Yesterday we posed the riddle: What has glasses, big hair, a blazer and a penchant for ratty denim jackets and other equally homeless-looking attire?
If you guessed MTV VJ’s, then you’re right! Anthonia, Ileana and I went as Downtown Julie Brown, Jesse Camp and Kennedy this Halloween and we did a pretty darn good job, if you ask me. The best part was that we didn’t have to buy too much for our costumes–and if we did buy something, we could probably use it again. Although I don’t know how Anthonia feels about wearing her Trapper Keeper inspired bodycon dress from American Apparel.
