Last night was Fashionista’s first ever panel discussion! Bringing our “How I’m Making It” feature to life was so much fun and incredibly informative. Our fabulous panel included Timo Weiland and Alan Eckstein (of Timo Weiland), Rebecca Minkoff, Jeff Halmos (of Shipley & Halmos), Nellie Partow, Michael Mente (of Farfetch.com and Revolveclothing.com) and Paul Birardi and Eddy Chai (Odin and Pas de Deux). If you weren’t able to come, we didn’t want you to completely miss out, so here’s a rundown of what we feel were the evening’s most enlightening points. (Some good news for out-of-towners: We’ll be livestreaming our next event.) And if you did come, well, we (and our panelists) hope you didn’t leave too discouraged. If last night proved anything, it was that this business ain’t easy.

Ever thought of opening your very own shop featuring your favorite clothes, shoes, and accessories? Well, fashionable e-tailer Revolve wants to fulfill your dreams.
On November 11, Revolve will relaunch with a new look and plenty of new features. These include more fashion editorials, more blog posts, and more tips from the site’s buyers and editors. But the most notable change is an opportunity for users to build their own online boutiques.
After creating a profile on Revolveclothing.com, a user can “heart” her favorite looks, which are then transferred into her own boutique. Any time another shopper buys something via her boutique, the “owner” receives a commission in the form of store credit. Commission can range from 1 to 10%, depending on how popular your boutique becomes. Ways to draw attention to your boutique include uploading blog posts and videos.
Considering I’ve spent the better part of today reminiscing about my childhood, either in writing or just in my own head, it’s not surprising that I was drawn to this House of Harlow ring that totally gives off old-school mood ring vibes. This one is tiger’s eye so it won’t actually change colors on you. Read more →
Before you say anything, know that I am fully aware that it’s just about time for me to enter a 12-step program to deal with my jewelry obsession. But not before I snatch up this ring from In God We Trust. The shape looks like a silhouette of a seriously huge diamond dazzler, and is Read more →
The white jumpsuit at left was one of the best things about Erin Fetherston’s Spring 09 collection. So we thought you should know where you can get it – especially since it’s only one place: Revolve’s The List. That would be their rotating list of super exclusive, high end product.

Reader Claire, from Sydney, drew our attention to this Slow & Steady Wins the Race bag, at right. Though it could never pass as one of the actual 2.55′s hanging at the Zaha Hadid exhibit in Central Park right now, we all know the association this bag is trying to ride on. Even though $100 Read more →
