Fab Collab! - Fashiontoast x DANNIJO Jewelry

We at Stylehive love when two fashion forces combine to make one lust-inducing collaboration, like the limited edition six-piece jewelry collection by Fashion Toast blogger Rumi Neely and DANNIJO's Danielle and Jodie Snyder. Together, they took Neely's rocker girl street style and DANNIJO's creative use of metal to create a line of edgy, but absolutely girly, jewelry pieces that include hammered-metal rings, necklaces and cuffs that all have delicate and sweet embellishments (kind of like Neely who we just might have a girl-crush on).

The collection is available now, exclusively on and is priced from $40 to $250. Check out the mini slideshow to take a look for yourself!

TheFind Interviews' Fabricated [Los Angeles]' Designers Gemma Aguiar and Ashley Vanni

Fashion surrounds my everyday life, with what I do, what I wear, and what I don't wear. So sometimes it is nice to just throw something on without starring into my closet with that ever present quintessential thought of 'I have nothing to wear'. At times I want an easy outfit, nothing fussy, something kick back, but I absolutely will not be a bum, I have to add an element of me in there somewhere!

So when I was introduced to Fabricated [Los Angeles], I knew I had found something special - something that met my easy, yet chic requirements! The casual, fun vibe of the mostly t-shirt line is exactly what I'm looking for on any given day chic is required, but sequins are out of the question.

Label Love - Get Sexy & Sophisticated With David Meister Dresses!

Every female wants to ooze classic sex-appeal, but sultry sophistication can so easily take a wrong turn. It's easy to over-step the boundary from sexy to trashy or, on the opposite end of the spectrum, stuffy and matronly (God forbid!). With David Meister and his collection of sensually sophisticated cocktail dresses, you'll always look seductively appropriate! A sheath dress is always classic with it's feminine silhouette and longer hemline, but a plain black sheath is something we've all seen a million times. David Meister cleverly takes this favorite shape and adds interesting necklines and enticing details like off-shoulder looks and flattering ruching. Sumptious fabrics and eye-catching colors and prints only add to the va-va-voom factor. These dresses are perfect for any evening event and are quickly becoming a celebrity favorite, guaranteeing heads turning in your direction and looks of envy all night long! But don't just take my word for it! Click on the slideshow to see some of my favorite sexy and sophisticated cocktail dresses by David Meister!

From military looks, to knit on knit dressing, high heel hiking boots and handbags galore, here are five key pieces that will take you from September straight through to the holidays when you can start shopping guilt-free all over again!

Label Love: Laid-Back Luxury by Geren Ford

Be ahead of the curve. When looking for an impressive look that's stepping outside the box, you need not look further than the collections of Geren Ford. Gaining inspiration from her travels and the surrounding art world, her designs mimic the beauty she sees. This designer blends classic style with fashion forward edge. I think the reason Ford has such great balance in her designs comes from her childhood which was split between living in New York and Southern California, gaining both East and West Coast style. Geren Ford has created a unique blend of clothing that holds on to what it means to be a woman without sacrificing individuality. I'm in love with her latest Fall collection. The colors are all deeply rich - they just take your breath away. Ford stands by her philosophy of "subtle yet sophisticated design" and it really shows. You'll definitely stand out in these designs. The only difficult part will be deciding which pieces to choose!
