Vanessa Williams as Wilhelmina Slater in Jee Vice Fabulous Shades in Ugly Betty episode, “London Calling”.
This could obviously be a glamourous travel article, a globe-trotting ensemble armoring you in weather-defensive sunglasses in a reliable trench coat while packing your carry-on with beach-to-bar swimwear and a cocktail/sundress.
But, these pieces go beyond that.
This article is chuck full of sneak peeks while mixing your highs and lows at accessible Target and Walmart.
Even though you wouldn't find this at either of those massive, big box retailers, in the almost next-t0-last episode of "Ugly Betty," "London Calling," Wilhelmina Slater (Vanessa Williams) shields her glaze in a pair of timeless Jee Vice sunglasses in "Fabulous."
As the second jet-setting celebrity to debut Zac Posen for Target, Nicky Hilton flashed her New Wave tiger stripes in an $35 Animal Print Zac Posen for Target Sailor Dress at Nylon magazine’s 11th Anniversary Party with sister Paris Hilton at Trousdale in LA.
However, the rockin' "The Runaways" star, Dakota Fanning beat her to the punch by wearing Zac Posen for Target Tuxedo Jacket while promoting the film.
$35 Norma Kamali Trench Coat at Walmart.
You can still run from home to party to airport in this very affordable, very sensible Norma Kamali Trench Coat. Travel and Leisure Magazine voted this the best trench back in February 2009. You can get it for $35 at Walmart.
Wondering what to do with your new IPad?
Fiddling with it in the cab or waiting gate at the airport, you can download Norma Kamali's new swimwear catalogue/lookbook in Interview Magazine's new app. It starts with her normally more expensive line then flows into her Walmart collections that are downright cute.
These key pieces are like Lego blocks for any woman's wardrobe, that can be built upon and interchange seamlessly while keeping your wallet solid.
