This is every fashionista's paradise!

Style.com is every fashionista's paradise and as the online home of Vogue, it damn well better be! They cover everything from fashion shows and trends to parties and celebrities to a shopping guide (so we can find out where to indulge our retail therapy needs for those really cute boots!) and much, much more. It's like a one-stop shop for every fashion addict. 

For someone who is strapped for time, having a condensed, easy to maneuver version of the often 500-page Vogue online is invaluable. It's also invaluable to look up what's hot this minute. I usually tend to pick a few trendy pieces that fit my overall style and have some staying power. But, sometimes it's fun to indulge in a bit of fantasy. You know the one where you can afford anything you want to wear and don't have to check the price tag or go straight to the sales rack in the back of the boutiques? This site indulges your fantasies and they have that shopping guide in case you get that job or raise (you deserve a treat!).

I like how they have the fashion show section organized- by line, season and designer. Then, when you select a designer, they break it down further for you. They have reviews written from fashion writers and editors about the overall line and the show. They have pictures of the complete collection and you can select details which will show you close-ups of the clothes. The front row section is full of photos of socialites, fashionistas, bloggers, and celebs. Finally, my favorite section is the beauty section where you can see close-ups of the models hair and make-up to get a feel of what is hot for that season.

I'm going to hook you up with some info I learned on Style.com- the trends for Spring '09 are under the categories of Depression Chic (my fave, it was reminiscent of the 30s), Geometry Lessons (with oversized shapes making up for sleeves and skirts), Goddess Worship (typical flowy dresses), Marrakech Express (very colorful, Middle Eastern inspired), Sporting Goods (self-explanatory) and Trash and Vaudeville (which is a funny name for a style that's highly reminiscent of the 80s, a fashion decade most of us that are old enough to remember would like to forget!).

For accessories, look to hobo bags with fringe, metallic python shoes, jet crystal bootie (in the photo) and darwin gladiator (a more stylish take on the gladiator sandal of last season). Actually, a lot of trends are recycled from last year and I'm not sure if it's the recession that affected Fashion Week or if it's just really savvy styling.

So, if you're invited to a swanky party and have no clue what to wear in order to be fashionably hot, definitely click on www.style.com before hitting the boutiques or the mall.
