Sensa is apparently quite the fabulous product – or at least many users say so. One of them is "Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger, who claims to have lost 20 pounds on Sensa, those calorie-free flavor sprinkles that supposedly help you lose weight. The South Florida Sun Sentinel blog the Skinny reports on her enthusiasm. "A magic fairy dust-like product is going to help me fit into a pair of skinny jeans? I am skeptical, to say the least," the blog says. We are too. Sensa creator Dr. Alan Hirsch talked about how the flavor crystals were supposed to help people lose weight in a Los Angeles Times story "Sensa: Get a whiff of this diet.

NEW YORK -- The collection: Monika Chiang. Launched in 2011, the brand has stores in L.A. and New York. Chiang is the girlfriend of entrepreneur Chris Burch, who helped launch her brand as well as ex-wife Tory Burch's. Where Tory's look is decidedly uptown, Monika's is downtown -- and after-dark. The inspiration: Street style in South Africa, where Chiang traveled over the New Year's holiday. The look: "Luxe athleticism," as described by Chiang. Black leather skirts with car-wash pleats, embroidered leather bra tops, block-print skinny jeans, biker jackets in leather or stripe canvas, parachute silk pants and anoraks, strappy sandals with skyscraper-high block heels, baseball caps.

Just when Lena Dunham and a handful of tech geniuses seemed to corner the market on wunderkind status, along comes Maria Stanley. At just 25, the Minnesotan is hoping to take L.A. by storm as head designer of new contemporary clothing line Harlyn. The guiding aesthetic for the brand, which hit stores including Planet Blue and Anthropolgie in February, could be described as "It's Jess!" - as in Zooey Deschanel's character in "New Girl. Girlie "fit and flare" dresses, collared jumpsuits, cap-sleeved peplum blouses and discreetly tailored peg-legged trousers in sand-washed almost suede-like silks with heavier drapes are spiced up with signature prints that play on classics like a navy and ivory chain link motif.

DURING the last few seasons, we've seen the return of 1960s patent-leather go-go boots, 1930s-era brogues, the classic 1950s ballet flat and the 1970s platform. But spats? That's right, they're not just for Mr. Peanut anymore. Spat-like flourishes are showing up clinging to high heels, looking like a gladiator's leather armor, and on fall's must-have booties, which are being embellished with ankle buttons and straps. The Hives were onto the trend early.

There's been a lot of talk about bricks-and-mortar stores launching online, but not so much about online stores launching in bricks and mortar. This Saturday, Revolve Clothing -- the online store that specializes in contemporary labels such as Rock & Republic, Joie and Whitley Kros -- is opening on Melrose Avenue, bringing some of the most compelling things about the point-and-click experience to the shopping trip experience. One of the most powerful tools online retailers have is the ability to tailor their home pages to the whims of fashion, building a "display" of skinny jeans the day after Ashlee Simpson has been photographed wearing them, or telling a trend "story" by pulling out images of plaid accessories.

If you don't know who Paul is, neither did Guy Adams, the West Hollywood resident who'd just hit the magic shot. But Paul is well known to the 1.

THE trend started a few seasons back with the clodhoppers at Balenciaga -- menacing, thick-heeled booties paired with sweet, flippy short skirts. A look that was practically impossible for mortals to wear. Of course, that didn't stop the return of the ankle boot. They rode the 1980s resurgence to fame. And for fall, they are being done over in patent leather and spectator styles, reaching anywhere between the anklebone to just below the shin.
