LuxReview: Sassybax Lingerie

The assurance of a smooth silhouette has become more of a luxury than it needs to be.  One simple solution is in Sassybax, a line of bras and camisoles that eliminates the "bra strap bulge" - no more bumps and lumps in the back!  If you're getting dressed for New Year's Eve and regretting all of that holiday eating, you'll appreciate that these undergarments not only provide a smooth silhouette, but a slimmer looking one.  And all while being supportive and comfortable!  Available at, Neiman Marcus and specialty stores nationwide.

DVF for Holiday

It's hard to believe that holiday shopping season is upon us.  And what ever will we wear?  Diane von Furstenberg's latest collection is now at Saks and is worth checking out, as the designer has strayed from the wrap dresses that made her famous.

Trina Turk Coat

It's getting cold in New York and we've found something fits the bill perfectly.  "Rich peacock print in a striking style, seamed for a stunning fit. Inset waist enhances the hourglass shape, and faux-fur trim adds an ultraluxe finish."  That's the Trina Turk "Prima Donna" Coat.
