ReForm School: Zaishu "Bamboo" Stool
by Ida Hsiang
We're always so worried about stepping out in the latest style of dress, or the new 'it' bag and we go through pains to make sure that our hair is coiffed in the latest style and our make-up is applied just right. It seems that we often overlook a just as important part of our day. Bedtime. If you think about it, we spend about half our day either asleep or lounging and why so many of us are satisfied to be wearing just an over-sized tee and and an ex's old boxers while doing so is beyond me. Now, there's a way to stay comfortable and carefree while having a casual night at home and in bed. Stellina is our answer to luxuriously soft sleepwear that's practical, comfortable and with just the right amount of sex appeal added in. While silk teddies and lacy undergarments are fun for that 'special' night, Stellina is perfect for every night with their sumptuously soft bamboo pieces and cotton pajama sets and bathrobes. Besides the high-quality, super soft fabrics (I love bamboo knits!), Stellina further enhances it's sleepy-time appeal with feminine pastel hues and cuddly whites and creams. Pieces hug curves in all the right places without being tight and low v-necks and scoop necks, as well as sexy hem lengths look sensuous while still providing enough coverage. So put away that ratty flannel sleep shirt and click on the slideshow to see Stellina's must-have sleepwear pieces!

The transition between summer and fall is a favorite time for wearing jersey dresses. It is so easy to dress them up or down! We found some darling ones this week from some great indie designers. Deirdra Morgan of Punkin NYC has a gorgeous blue Italian cotton jersey for sale at Smashing Darling. Eco-friendly choices are plentiful this season-- check out OrganiK Revolution's soy jersey dress with the added mock collar detail. Gina Michele has several you should check out - the cute racer-back dress, Manhattan Madness, and a personal favorite, the draped front La Vita e Bella with its braided tie and back collar. Our friends at Etsy have some fun jersey dresses as well. SDN1982's soy jersey black wrap dress is very versatile. And Sandmaiden's Etsy shop always has great bamboo/cotton dresses. See all thirteen of our favorite jersey picks in our slideshow.
