Fashion: If you want a luxuriously sexy Southern California beach-y look, go no further than www.rumors-boutique.com, the online store from Rumors, a luxury boutique based in San Diego, California.
At the Rumors online boutique, you can shop either through a neatly alphabetized list of designers or by choosing a category within categories, like women's jeans, dresses, shoes, etc. Rumors also features men's clothing with edgy detailing from labels like Salvage.
Although much of the collections are focused on luxury casualwear and denim, Rumors isn't without a dressed-up stunner. For instance, just in time for holiday goings-on, is the Alice + Olivia metallic sequined baby-doll dress in gold. Paired with leggings and flats, you've got a great, festive daytime look, or wear it barelegged with stiletto heels to a sexy soiree.
If you're feeling a little more elegant, look at the vintage-inspired German design dress from Ingwa Melero. The Charmeuse Gaia Dress in pearl features sleeves that reach just past the elbow, and a knee-length skirt, but the most stunning part of the body-conscious dress is the diamond-patterned middle, which will help hide the extra weight that seems to accumulate at this time of year. The design is sophisticated, yet retains a sultriness from the deep v-neck. The dress shines on its own, so resist the temptation to over-accessorize and stick to one or two key pieces, like dangly earrings and an over-sized cocktail ring.
If you can't make it to the store, make sure to check out the Rumors boutique online store for elegant designer styles.
