By Roberta Correia · May 25, 2010

Imagine my shock and awe when I came across this pic of the lovely Kate Bosworth walking around NYC last week. Not only have I been way too obsessed with the oversized "boyfriend" button down trend lately and was happy to see I'm not the only one, but Kate's wearing the EXACT same shirt I had worn a week earlier in an attempt to perfect this trend for a dinner out with my most favorite ex co-workers. Somehow I managed to wear the same item as one of the undeniably best dressed celebs out there even before she wore it!

Let's just start off by acknowledging the cool factor of our (mine and Kate's obv) mutual Topshop shirt.

Needless to say I didn't come anywhere near close to Kate's chicness with this look. First off her blonde hair did more for the taupe color than my very dark curly hair. Second of all she paired it with skinny jeans which kept it lighter, while I paired it with black skinny pants and a fair isle sweater (it was one of those unexpectedly cold days we've had in NYC lately).

First Camilla Belle, now this. My celebrity dressing 6th sense is really on a roll.

Get mine and Kate's look after the jump. more, more, more...

Desperately Seeking: Fall Green...

Considering my recent jetset - travel heavy lifestyle, I've been a little delayed on the fall shopping front. Until this week. Sweaters, boots, tights and yet more boots are the only thing on my mind, and if I've been absent it's only because so much of my time has been devoted to scouring the online shopping world for the perfect shearling lined leather jacket and the perfect everyday 90's Brenda-esque boot. And, for some reason a green cardigan seems to be sticking in my head as my lightweight layer of choice for the season. Every outfit I attempt screams at me "I need a green cardigan, please, pretty please get me a green cardigan..."

But it's not your regular green my closet is craving - it's a mix of hunter/forrest/army/olive that can't really be quantified, and you can imagine my surprise when I came across varied hues of just this green for my soon to be ubiquitous all season layer. Belted, vintage buttons, snap buttons, regular buttons, v-necks and crewnecks - a veritable pupu platter of sweaters, all there for my shopping pleasure! Pair it over a floral dress with (shocker of all shocks) chunky boots or perhaps over a shiny or studded tank with black pants and brown riding boots...green is the new beige? I can't wait.

Daily Style: The Ladies of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Dear Sienna Miller, 

I won't mention your homewrecking ways and will instead focus on your absolute fashion perfection. Your presence at this morning's UK photocall for G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra in head to toe Loewe Spring 09 collection, was in so many ways ideal. The military motif for one of your first appearances promoting your military movie, I mean they can't write this stuff. The pants are perfectly on trend yet have that 40s Andrew Sisters USO thing going for you. The softly swept hair and red lips also add to the ligetimacy of the look as does your brass buttoned shirt. There is not one thing wrong with this, and it will go down in the books as one of my favorite red carpet looks of all time. 

Not that I don't love your G.I. Joe co-stars' looks as well, but yours has this individuality and appropriateness to it that no one else could possibly capture. I do love Rachel Nichols's Bryan Reyes dress and of course no one could pull off pregnancy in stripes quite like Karolina Kurkova in her TopShop dress and booties. 

We know this is only the beginning and things will only get better from here! We can't wait to see what you have in store for us fashion hungry types. 

Sincerely (and xoxo),

It's Only Fashion

Daily Style: Selena Gomez

Adorable Disney star Selena Gomez was in NYC last week and apparently she loved the new TopShop as much as the rest of us. The tween super star (and rumored Taylor Lautner gal pal) was spotted shopping in Soho after doing some promoting on Regis & Kelly last week. Pint sized Selena must have stopped into our local TopShop to pick up this summer perfect striped sweater. Sure, it's got a Bert & Ernie feel to it but that's kind of what we love about it.

For a mere $65 you too can look like a Disney Channel star at topshop.com

Desperately Seeking...Tea Time

If you're life is anything like mine at the moment your social calendar mainly consists of bridal showers, baby showers and bachelorette parties. With many of my friends getting married and some babies on the way it seems that my upcoming dance card is filled with tea parties.

Not to worry though, looks like tea dresses are making a gigantic come back and come in all colors, shapes and sizes. Now since I'm counting the minutes to some spring like weather, it's nice to see so many florals and bright colors. For now they will need to be accessorized with a nice pair of tights (seriously I'm getting sick of it, I know it's unheard of but I can't take tights anymore!) and maybe some booties. I'm kind of hoping to take my tea dress away from the tea salon and wear it out to dinner, think I can pull it off?

The day we've all been waiting for...

By Roberta Correia · April 2, 2009

I'm not sure if you've heard (insert obvious sarcasm here) about this little store opening that's going on today in NYC. Yes, I will be walking over to the giant SoHo flagship of the first ever US Topshop and getting in line to hopefully get my hands on some London inspired Spring pieces.And yes I've been awake since 7 (I NEVER wake up that early) with excitement and have had several cups of coffee. 

And it looks like I'm clearly not the only one excited...Over the past two days Sir Phillip Green (that's the owner of Topshop) has hosted two sets of dinners at Balthazar and private shopping events for VIPS (ie celebrities and their hangers on), my invite must have gotten lost in the mail. Last night's event gave us a glimpse of the girl everyone's been hoping to see, Miss Kate Moss herself is on the other side of the pond to help Topshop celebrate their US opening (again for those of you who have not heard she has this little line that she designs for Topshop, sorry I'm a bit too snarky this morning)... 

So while I wait to muster up the strength to check out the store, why don't you take a look at some of the fabulous people who got first dibs on the fabulous dresses, waistcoats (I'm pretty sure that's British for vests), jumpers (again British for sweater), bags, shoes, skirts etc etc etc 

Let's just hope they have some pieces left in my size when I get there
