One of the most overlooked parts about a movie are the great costume designs. These movie stills are from The Deep Blue Sea, a movie about a young wife and her affair set sometime during the 1950s. I have personally never seen the movie, but I really like the costumes from it. Rachel Weisz and Tom Hiddleston are featured in most of the stills. Ruth Myers was the costume designer for the movie.
Penelope Cruz looks stunning in this photo shoot for the Campari Calendar. The 38-year-old Spanish beauty is the 14th star to grace the calendar following in the footsteps of Milla Jovovich, Jessica Alba, Eva Mendes and Olga Kurylenko. Photographer Kristian Schuller does an amazing job capturing Cruz in a variety of red outfits and hairstyles. Another fantastic addition to the Campari Calendar collection.

Jessica R is a 25 year old graphic artist/web editor and fashion blogger from the Bay Area of California. Here's a little excerpt from her blog Hapa Time:
"Even though at this point (after blogging for 10 months - 10.9.12) I almost exclusively show off my sponsor's clothing, I make sure to keep it classy, on trend, subtly sexy, edgy, modern and almost always polished. I always pick the items I style and am very selective. I try to keep a style that is affordable too though affordable is very subjective, I would say a young working woman in her 20's and early 30's would be happiest taking any kind of advice from me or my blog!"
Check out these gorgeous shots of a Chinese model in a pink dress. I love the dress and ornate hair stylings!

31 Bits is a wonderful shop that sells hand made jewelry from women in Uganda. Here is the story of how it started:
"Kallie Dovel, traveled to Uganda in the summer of 2007, getting a first- hand look at life in Northern Uganda. While she was there, she met women making paper beads but who lacked a plan to market and sell them. After spending time in their homes and hearing their stories, Kallie knew there had to be a way to give opportunities to her new friends. She brought a box of jewelry back to the U.S., and spent the next year finishing her degree and dreaming up the concept of a development organization. She brought a few friends on board and her ideas quickly evolved into 31 Bits. The girls traveled back to Uganda in August 2008, and selected six women to begin buying jewelry from on a monthly basis. Since then, we have grown to 99 women; each with a unique story of suffering that has been overcome with joy and liberation. Find out more about what we do in Uganda here."
31 Bits is not only a wonderful story, but they also provide beautiful jewelry at an affordable price.You can wear it no matter whether you are wearing bright colors or neutral colors or even for your wedding.
