Jackie Picks, Picks, Picks...

It's busy season at Style, She Wrote -- details to come soon! -- and we apologize that we've been slow on posts. In an effort to play catch-up, I'm posting the collections, collaborations, and gadgets that are on my watch list this week!

First up, Fashion Star! The fashion show's season finale was this week, and winner Kara Laricks has already released three collections showcasing her boldly-colored, awesomely-shaped designs. I love her Pocket Dress for H&M (above, $24.95), but have been equally impressed by her Macy's and Saks Fifth Avenue collections as well.

Next up, Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein. Calvin Klein's Creative Director released a limited edition line of dresses for Macy's that focus on the architecture and colors of his native Brazil. “We all stereotype Brazil as a republic of banana and pineapple prints,” Costa said, “but I think of it as simple and sophisticated.” Check out his Sleeveless Viscose Crepe Belted Dress from the collection (above, $145.00), which pairs Calvin Klein's signature sleek silhouette with guava and cement hues.

And last, but certainly not least, the iCleanDock. Never heard to it? That's because it's not available...yet. (Yes, folks, we're that much ahead of the game.) Conceived and designed by Lynnie's future husband and my future brother-in-law, Michael Battiato, this iPhone/iPod dock has a built-in UV light box that rids your gadgets of germs while they charge or play music. Love the design? Vote for this great gadget to be put into production on Quirky here! (Thanks in advance for the support!)

S.S.W. Asks: What are YOU excited about this week?
