The B List

This week's B List includes a fashion website that features hot new designers you won't find anywhere else, a stellar fashion blog, a killer clutch and a collection of comfy and stylish tops. Tune in next week to find out who makes the B List!

1. Ravinstyle.com

Mariemariecowlneckdress What it is: The leading online shop for emerging fashion designers. Founder Jill Licata shares her New York fashion savvy with women who want to stay ahead of the fashion trends.

Why we love it: For those of us who want to “wear it first”, this site is awesome. They have a unique shopping experience too. When you get to the site, you’ll find three illustrated fashionistas hosting your shopping experience: Lela (flirty feminine), Jackie (minimal chic), and Ravin (bohemian edge). Each has her own distinct shopping personality to help you find the look that expresses your individual style. You can take their online quiz and find outfits created specifically for your tastes. They style looks online the same way you enjoy them in your favorite boutique window in their Outfits section (so you can visualize what something will look like before you buy it). We also love their jewelry and handbags.

2. KristopherDukes.com

What it is: Blog for fashion writer turned fashion blogger Kristopher Dukes. At the raw age of 20 Miss Dukes wrote for WWD and TopButton.com. Today, she pens for Fashion Wire Daily and has her own blog, KristopherDukes.com.

Why we love it: She’s not afraid to tell you what she hates along with what she loves, plus she dishes up the dirt on giveaways and deals on handbags, shoes and fashion, and articles that help us look fabulous—all with smart, and a little flippant, commentary.

3. Brian Atwood Mattie Envelope Clutch

Brian_atwood What it is: Brian Atwood structured patent leather clutch with sturdy golden metal corners, available exclusively at Saks.

Why we love it: It’s simply stated but opulent at the same time. I love the simplicity of the bag and the elegance of the topstitching and gold corners.

4. Romeo + Juliet Couture

Rc_print What it is: A collection of stylish and feminine fashion staples that’s extra wearable and practical for everything.Rcsolidjpg

Why we love it: Because the clothes are stylish and comfortable. I hate it when I see a top that looks great on the hanger (or in a photo) but when I put it on I look like I’m wearing a potato sack. Romeo + Juliet Couture has feminine tops that come in trendy prints or “safe” solids. But they all are comfortable and pair with denim and leggings.

    Thanks for the love, you lovely.

    If I were the gay man everyone assumed I was --

    I'd go straight for you.
