Time Magazine LogoI’m honored to announce that Omiru was named one of Time Magazine’s 50 Best Websites for 2008!  Here’s what Anita Hamilton of Time Magazine says about us:

"Focused on "real style for real people," Omiru doesn’t just tell you what the fashion trends are — it helps you figure out what actually looks good on you…The site recommends dresses for curvy petites and accessories for your little black dress. Sure, tips like these are sprinkled throughout more mainstream fashion sites like Glam and Style, but Omiru’s laser focus on practical fashion advice makes it a don’t-miss."

You Said: No to Tie Dye

Omiru Poll Result: Tie Dye is Out

Dip Dye Sun DressWe asked: Would you wear Tie Dye?

You said:  No, not so much.  Only 23% of you would give Tie Dye a try.

Style tip?  Tie dye doesn’t have to look like the radial-print hand-dyed shirts you made as a kid.  In fact, it can look elegant–or even casually playful.  Try out some other dyeing techniques, such as dip dyeing (as seen on the dress at left).  Equal parts bohemian and modern.

Next question: You have your cell phone, your money, your makeup, and a host of other assorted items in your evening bag–hence the popularity of the Giant Envelope Clutch.  But would you rather dump out your stuff–or carry a giant bag? Tell us, would you carry a Giant Envelope Clutch?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

Isn’t this lipstick pink trapeze dress simply sweet? We love the retro feel–and how it flatters women with short legs.

$34.99  at Target.
