Manus x Machina

4 May

The MET Gala is one of the most exciting times in New York City for a fashionista.  All the Elite come together adorning their best! This years theme was Manus x Machina; Fashion in the face of technology.  It was a mix of the practical with a modern scientific edge. It brought a New World Order feel to the runway and the stars shined bright. My fave for the night was Claire Dane’s dress which was designed by Zac Posen and had actual LED lighting. She lit up the runway literally and metaphorical. Take a look at some of my favorites below…

Ethical Fashion???

4 Mar

Ribbon6

I have proposed a question within the title of this article. Ethical Fashion…. Can it exist? Well within the eyes of the Founders of Sseko Designs the answer is an astounding YES! Sseko Designs hires women in Uganda to make sandals. These women come from all different walks of life. In return they earn funds that go directly towards their College educations to invest in their bright futures.These women are receiving practical work experience and life long skills. The sandals they create are exquisite. Honestly they are fashion forward and very versatile. The Ribbon sandals design is simple, however from one shoe you have limitless creativity. The ribbons can be changed, which gives you many options. There is even a guide to show you all the different ways you can tie your shoes. And they also offer accessories such as beads, and jewels to jazz up your design. You can literally have 10 shoes in one. I will be purchasing the classic sandal package for $69.99. You get 3 ribbons and a base. That’s like having 3 shoes in 1. Not to mention your supporting a great cause. I am all about paying it forward. Please check out http://ssekodesigns.com . I doubt you will be disappointed .There are so many other cool designs and accessories so please take a look. If you know of any other companies who are involved in ethical fashion, please feel free to share with me in the comments section below!

I am a self-proclaimed shoe addict, but I am also a lover of the unique and complex. Some people follow the norms I tend to walk to my own beat. Sophia Webster is an award winning, Shoe Designer from the United Kingdom who does just that! Sophia’s designs can be best described as whimsical, eccentric and just plain ole fun. With less than 3years under her belt since the foundation of her company; I say she is definitely someone to watch.  You can learn more about her or shop her designs at http://www.sophiawebster.com

Trend Report: Athletic Chic

What do you get when you combine the sports enthusiasm of David Beckham and the sophistication of Victoria Beckham? You get unadulterated sporty chic. A fashion forward spin on athletic wear. Think Gwen Stefani or Fergie back in her Black Eye Pea days.. It’s that mix of cool, comfortable and chic in a ultra classy way! Forever 21 has an entire collection geared on the trend.  Asos offers some fashion forward finds as well! Take a look at my faves.

Trend Alert: Get To The Point

Unless your under a rock, you should know by now that pointy heels are all the rave. The sleek, sophisticated design has taken the place of the beloved round toe and platform heel. Many celebrities have been seen in the coveted Louboutin “So Kate” pump, which pretty much kicked off the trend. People were flocking to Sak’s and Nemain Marcus to snag a pair. However we have shoes for every budget. From the bargain steal of Charlotte Russe and Ted Baker to the more risqué in price of Nicholas Kirkwood and Alexander McQueen. There is something for everyone. Take a look at my top picks!

Get The Look: Ready to Conquer

20 Jan

  With the New Year brings new goals, new dreams and new desires… Right now you’re probably trying to land that dream job. With so much competition it’s quite difficult. Your resume should reflect your skills, talents and abilities so well that the individual reading it gets a greater sense of knowing you without actually ever meeting you. It’s a lot of stiff competition out there. But we were made to conquer! Dressing the part is just as important as your resume and cover letter.. Remember first impressions dedicate a lot about a person. If you walk into a room confident, well kempt and professional that leaves a greater impression than having a great resume but sloppy appearance. It has to be the total package. You are asking someone to invest in you so you have to present as a worthy investment.

If you’re in the blue-collar field such as (Municipal, City Workers, Teachers, Engineers) etc. It’s best to wear professional attire. Men a suit with tie and ladies either a pants or skirt suit. You should stay within a monochromatic color scheme; such has navy, gray and black. However if you’re in a creative field such as (Fashion, Entertainment, Media, Arts) etc. You should offer a little more flair or personality to your look. There is a fine balance between the two and it shouldn’t be taken overboard. It’s essential to remain professional. Below I put together a look for women in the creative field. The look is built off basics… Adding a great blazer and pair of pants, which are essential to every gal’s closet. I wanted to bring out the individuality so I added a statement necklace with a basic pump in a shocking red. It adds a simple wow factor without being overstated. I would wear a simple white camisole underneath my blazer. And if you wanted to take this outfit from creative to blue-collar swap out the red pumps and statement necklace for a basic black pump and a simple necklace. Instead of the camisole I would wear a white button up to complete the look. It’s a New Year full of endless opportunities…. Dress the part and conquer your dreams!

*For all my fashionistas on a budget message me for affordable finds on business attire.

Get The Look: Baby’s It’s Cold Outside

17 Jan

Image 4 of Unreal Fur Longer Length Gilet

On the east coast its freezing outside! Every morning I open my front door to a windy chilly day. Winter is not my favorite time of year for many reasons. I am a fashionista and having to wear a big bulky coat doesn’t really fit the bill for me. However you can still look cute and fashion forward with these haute finds. Being warm is key, but you can also be warm in style. One f my favorite websites www.asos.com offers all kinds of goodies at prices you can afford.  I am totally obsessed with the Asos faux fur-lined parka! Take a look at a few of my top picks.

2015 Golden Globe Fashion Slay……

12 Jan

rs_634x1024-150111153921-634_Gina-Rodriguez-Golden-Globes-Red-Carpet-011115

I have to admit the only reason why I watch award shows is to see the fashion… In this area I am guilty as charged. But to me the red carpet is the highlight of the show. I love to see all the looks put together and complete. This years Golden Globe’s didn’t disappoint at all. My faves were Gina Rodriguez from Jane the Virgin, Latin sensation Jennifer Lopez, HTGAWM Viola Davis and Reese Withertherspoon to name a few. They came to slay the red carpet and that they did! There were a few misses which will remain anonymous, all I can say is a bread and a dress not my fave combination. However I digress, lets just enjoy all the beautiful ladies who came to represent class and sophistication. Pictures below provided by eonline.com
