Life and Style Today with Nina Shay: Fashion Update
Fun and Funky Fashions for Summer

As heard on the Rolonda Watts Show on Greenstone Media- June 21, 2007

This summer, it’s all about adding something bold, edgy and colorful to make your style statement. Who would have ever thought they'd see the day when fashionistas would be trading in their favorite Joes, Hudsons and Calvins, for a little down home denim fashion with a new twist. The OVERALL, once reserved for a little gardening, a play date at the sandbox or a ride on the tractor, have taken on a hot new look.

No longer just for Beverly Hill Billies, now Malibu Moms and Hollywood Hotties are mixing this old staple with dressy heels, sexy tanks and tees and the look is fabulous!

My Favorite: William Rast ("Jezebel")
Why: Casually chic, sexy and comfy (All in One)

Choosing from this summer's neon, bright and shimmering nail polishes, can leave you feeling like a kid in the candy store. "Lifesaver", "Yellow Drop", "Blueberry Crumb" and "Raspberry", they're all fun and exciting but can leave you salivating at the counter.

The key is not to indulge til you get a stomach ache but wear them as an accent to a less glaring outfit. Plus, they are a sensible entree to the Technicolor trend of clothings and accessories for the season.

My Favorite: Essie ("Huckle Buckle")
Why: Fun, vibrant, chic, elegant and long lasting

Comfy feet have never looked more chic than in the recycled hot new JELLIES in adorable flipflop styles. This summer's IT shoes have got glamour girls flocking to our favorite designers like Kate Spade, Stuart Weitzman and Calvin Klein for the perfect pair to romp in the sun.

With designs like rhinestone accented clear plastic wedges and sleek thongs of ocean blue with patterned linings, the beach won't be only the place we'll be seeing hot feet this summer!

My Favorite: Stuart Weitzman ("Divinyl")
Why: Breathable, and surprisingly versatile

This little baggy goes to the market, to park, the cafe and anywhere chic is in. Style icons Eva Longoria, Jessica Alba and Lindsay Lohan among others, are finding a lot more to talk about than just the cost per pound at the market since the MARKET BAG by JAY HERSH WEEKENDERS hit the scene. Taking toting to a whole new level, these Market Bags are a creative mix of old school durability with modern day appeal.

Believe it or not, they can't keep them on the shelves and the favorite colors of course are the original red, white and blue combination.

My Favorite: "City Tote"
Why: Holds a little bit of everything, and makes for a great conversation piece
Where: Exclusively at

As Always, Happy Shopping!
