The Direct Wrap Up with Devon Scott ~

"Small Business Saturday Shine"
Word is spreading - tomorrow is "Small Business Saturday," encouraging people to skip the mall and hit up those cute, locally-owned boutiques and shops for their holiday shopping.
The thing I've always loved about smaller, locally-owned shops is making friends with the cashiers, managers, etc.  Nine times out of ten (especially true here in the "317") they know someone you know.  They also can give good tips and discounts!
This month, I told you about the leopard print explosion (visit to view).  This gorgeous faux leopard cape (with purple fabric lining - love the contrast) is available at Broad Ripple's Niche Boutique (915 Broad Ripple Ave - $64). 
 If you want original jewelry, look no further than Silver in the City (434 Mass Ave/downtown).  This drool-worthy faceted Labradorite pendant ($65) is stunning and the perfect "statement piece" (as my readers know already, I like my jewelry colorful, big, and eye-catching).
Finally, I must give a nod to my new favorite vintage store, Harloh's (A Paige from the Past).  Located at 630 Virginia Avenue in Fountain Square, I walked in the other weekend to the sounds of some wonderful 60s doo-wop and wall-to-wall vintage clothing.  They offer a mix of designer vintage (I spied some gorgeous vintage Prada pumps and a delicious Gucci denim skirt).  They also have a fabulous wall of vintage brooches!
Fashion fiends, let me hear from you - what are your favorite small shops to find those unique items that make YOU stand out?

The Direct Wrap Up with Devon Scott ~

Bow Down or Bow Out? 
I want to put a trend out into the court of public opinion:  back bows.
When I think of bows, I think of Christmas gifts.  Headbands (for those under the age of 12).  Shoelaces. 
But, on party dresses?  The jury is still out.  I saw a gorgeous pink dress from White House/Black Market (yes I know that's a contradictory statement).  Problem?  The massive bow on the back.  In fairness, designers have moved the bow up from near the hips (circa 1985) to the middle of the back.  But, despite that, I can't get on-board with this trend.
What do you fashionistas think?

Burberry Sets A Facebook Record~

Something special happened just a few hours ago! Burberry, the luxury fashion brand known for its plaid umbrellas and iconic trench coats surpassed three million fans on Facebook. The British based brand has become the most-widely followed fashion brand on the social networking site!

Joanna Shields, Vice President for Facebook EMEA said "Burberry is no longer just a fashion company - today they are a thriving media enterprise! Burberry's successful not just because it makes great clothes but because it understands the importance of sparking interest in the community and using social media to engage and delight their consumers."

Burberry hit the 1 million fan mark  in about a year, they doubled that number in six months and it took just another month to reach 3 million fans! What is the brand doing to have this much success on the web? With online initiatives such as livestreaming fashion shows and "The Art of the Trench", which gives people a chance to submit photos of themselves wearing their favorite trench and sharing it with the world its no wonder the brand gaining ground on the web!

Designer Christopher Bailey created a special thank you card to mark the special milestone.

Prince William and Kate Middleton~ A Royal Engagement

We Yanks woke up to the the news that Prince William had finally popped the question to Kate Middleton last month and the happy couple are engaged! The two who have been together for eight years made an official announcement today at St. James's Palace in London. 

Looking very much the princess in a royal blue dress the always stylish Kate happily answered questions about her transition from William's girlfriend to future royal. "It's quite a daunting prospect, but hopefully I'll take it in my stride," she said. "William's a great teacher, so he'll be up to help me … I really look forward to it, and look forward to spending my time with William." 

William joked that while he was bad at judging just how long the two have been together he said "The timing is right now. We're both very happy, and I'm very glad that I have done it." 

Prince William gave Kate his late mother's 18 karat sapphire engagement ring that Prince Charles had once given Diana. Prince William told the press of the ring “It’s very special to me. As Kate’s very special to me now, it was right to put the two together.” He went on to say that it was a way to make sure that his mother was a part of the engagement their life together. The couples upcoming marriage will be the biggest event since the royal wedding between Diana and Prince Charles. No official date has been set but the couple plan to marry in the spring or summer of 2011.

Congrats to William and Kate!
