Fashion Star Addict

Have any of you been watching the TV show Fashion Star on NBC at 10pm on Tuesday nights?
 I have been religiously, seriously it is such a cool concept of a show. Up and coming designers who are given a task each week and three potential buyers from Macys, Saks Fifth Avenue and H&M. After the show, any of the pieces that were bought from any of the buyers, (only one store can buy from any of the designs) the pieces are available online that night and in stores the next day. 
I thought for my Fashion Fridays, I would display some of the pieces available in stores right now, that I would absolutely love to have in my closet. 
I will list the piece, the price and the store where it can be bought.
My first must-have in my closet is this gorgeous sherbert color dress at Saks Fifth Avenue by designer Orly for the price of $295. So not happening with my bank account.
When I saw Saks Fifth Avenue buying the dress, I knew immediately would be out of my price range. Bummer but still a lovely dress.

Mini zip skirt by Orly at Saks Fifth Avenue, price $350

There is this maxi dress by designer Nikki Poulos found at H&M, price $19.95
Another maxi dress designed by Nikki bought by H&M, price $34.95
I love this reversible blazer design by Sarah found at H&M for $29.95
I like these cuffed shorts design by Ross at Macys selling for $59.00
Lastly, this vest designed by Ross at Macys for $59.00 should be in my closet especially the pink one
There you have it, my picks of what I should own from the Fashion Star collection at any of the three major retailers.
Has anyone else been watching the show? Have you bought any of the items seen on the show?
Share your thoughts with me on this Fashion Friday.

  7. I agree about that color block dress--I sooooo wanted it! But cannot justify it. It is a fun and addicting show; but I forget about it! I think I caught it on a Sat. night re-run or something. I love J Simps!

  11. I have been watching and I also love the concept! I've always watched Project Runway but this is even cooler with the instant buy factor! I keep meaning to go over to H&M and check out the pieces but I think I will do that this weekend :)

  12. I love it too. It's so fun to be able to see the actual clothes that night on the retailers websites. It's such a wonderful concept. I love Nicole Richie.

  15. So. I've been watching Fashion Star. But I can't decide how I feel about it. Because sometimes I feel like I kind of hate it. Anytime Saks buys something, I love it, but it costs a gazillion dollars! Macy's always alters every design to make it kind of old lady-ish. And H&M totally changes the designs of everything to make it cheap haha.

    That being said, it's making me like Jessica Simpson more than I did before, and I'm happy to see Nicole Richie back on tv. Haha.

  16. I think the concept is great, but every time I watch it I feel like it is missing something. I can't put my finger on it. Orly is the best by far! I hope she wins.

  22. Hey Meg,

    I just thought I would hop on over to check out your blog since you left me some love on mine. This is a great post!! So fun to see the items in the stores. I have only seen one episode but it seems like a really cool concept!

    Also wondering what led you to my blog? As I am looking to get more readers/followers!

  24. I love that reversible blazer too!! So fun for the season. I also am a fan of H & M offering the clothing at a much more reasonable rate! :)

  25. I'm obsessed with Fashion Star as well. I love, love, love those shorts from Macy's! I always like Orly's pieces as well but unfortunately for me, Saks keeps picking them up and they are way out of my price range. Maybe they'll wind up at Off Fifth!
