EXPLORE YOUR SENSUALITY HAWAIIAN STYLE!

Is skincare important to you? Do you pamper your skin the way you should?  Is your skincare regimen up to par? If you answered maybe or absolutely not to these questions, I may have the perfect solution for you.

I have sensitive skin and I learned the hard way that I cannot put anything that hits the market on my face without researching it vigorously. I tend break out in bumps and blotches that almost look like hives. When I carelessly apply products the allergic reactions to the by products in certain beauty items is instant. I also found out that I cannot use products that contain Alpha Hydroxy or Retinol. These ingredients can almost burn my skin to the point that I need to wash them off as soon as possible. So that changed the whole beauty game for me since I needed to search for skincare that would cater to my sensitivity! I only use a handful of items that are safe for me and it sucks to be limited to those few. But I believe I was at the right place at the right time and I have found my holy grail in body and skincare…Let me share what works for me!

Let me introduce you to Sensual Beauty and boy is this gonna change the way you take care of your face and body.

Miss Zephorah Nure – Orangina heels and Photo by Authentic By John Ashford

Let me introduce you to the beautiful owner of Sensual Beauty. Her name is Miss Zephorah Nure and this beautiful lady is also known for her famous legs! Hmmmm? I wonder why -Vava Voom LOL!

Did you lose your train of thought? Yeah I’m sure you did so let’s focus on this skincare  then come back to check out the pic of Miss Nure laterz. Okay so as I was saying, these Hawaiian Spa Bath & Beauty products are the bomb.com and I really cannot lie about it. Lets look at each of these products as a whole and individually shall we?

There are many products to this Hawaiian Spa Bath and Beauty Line but I decided to purchase a set for myself. I believe they may be purchased individually but I suggest purchasing a whole package as they all seem to compliment each other in one way or another.

I’m in love with this Mint Mud Masque!!!

Let’s start with my favorite product from the line – The Mint Mud Masque.  Before I discovered this masque I was using various products that were safe for sensitive skin but they weren’t my holy grail. This heavenly product came along and wow am I so excited with my results that I’ve almost ditched my other products. I use it two to three times a week as recommended and its made such a difference in the appearance of my skin. Before I had some pimples on my jawline and I’m highly allergic to Alpha Hydroxy and Retinol products and ever since I’ve been using this masque faithfully, my pimples have disappeared and my face is so much smoother and softer. All you do is apply some of this product on and wait for it to slightly dry and rinse or wipe off, thats it! That to me is fabulous and it smells like fresh mint just picked out of your garden. Gotta love it!

Next is the Gorgeous Gardenia Sea Minerals Hydra-Silk Renewing Lotion and this is also a gem in this product line. Its smells just like if you’re in a field of soft gardenia’s. So imagine putting this on your face and experiencing it for yourself. It smells yummy and I apply this after using my mint masque and my skin feels so soft and smooth and I’m ready for my day or night whichever one I prefer to use it for. Just apply and enjoy the way it makes you feel!

DSC_0028

But wait …there’s more and here’s another gem to this line. The Sensual Sugar Scrub but this isn’t just any ordinary sugar scrub it has natural shea butter and honey. So when you smooth this on your skin it feels buttery soft and (please don’t do this LOL) its good enough to almost eat. You put it on your body, massage for a few minutes and it melts instantly making your application a pleasantly soft experience. This is a great product for your body but its also good for a before or after bikini wax soother. Note* Even though it says sugar scrub and it smells fabulous, do not apply this to the face area – only use on your body!

DSC_0009

Okay, now I introduce to you the ultimate me time incentive. You have to admit that we all need that amazing quiet me time – I know I do and this is where I highly appreciate this product line. In the above picture I share with you the Gorgeous Gardenia Luxury Bubble Bath. Just turn the water on and pour little of this in there and Voila your ready for your ultimate take away relaxation moment. Get in and soak for as long as you like, when you’re done you will truly smell and feel the difference on your skin. If you love the smell of Gardenia and soft, silky, skin then you need this in your life!

DSC_0011

Okay so there are a number of products in the Sensual Beauty line as you can see and  they can really make you feel sensuous and sexy. But here I give you another item that I simply LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! Okay I have discovered that this Heavenly Hibiscus Silky Body Oil is an essential part of this beauty line. Why? Because this oil in my opinion completes the product line – its truly a must have! I love to use this oil after I wash my face at night, I just pour alittle on the palm of my hands and apply to my face and the next morning my face feels rejuvenated. You can also use this for your body especially your legs. Ladies, it’s summer and if you want those silky, soft, amazing looking legs – this is your go to product. You need this in your life! We all need this in our lives LOL!

Finally there’s one last product I want you to check out and thats the Pleasure Potion Tea! This tea is made with natural herbs and from what I’ve heard its an amazing relaxation drink. I can’t wait to try it myself – lord knows I need that! Check out the beautiful packaging and the can the product comes in…so pretty! If you’re not into all the spa products then at least try that pleasure potion tea – I’m sure once you try the tea the rest of the line will be of your interest!

Oh and I totally forgot to mention that this line was created with sensuality in mind so don’t be afraid to explore the sensuous side if these products with your significant other! Oh and Mothers day is coming up soon, doesn’t she deserve a day of spa treatment?

Hint, Hint: That sensuous oil sure does spark curiosity and the lovers imagination – okay, moving on….place your order today I highly recommend this for all the ladies that love  100 percent natural products in their body and skincare!

AYCE INTERNATIONAL PRESENTS JOHNNY PLATINUM’S MIXTAPE RELEASE EVENT!

Today I’m veering away from fashion for a bit and instead I’m going to write about some awesome music which I rarely do write about! This music really does merit a special space on my blog especially since its amazing and I really enjoy it.

This past weekend I got an invite from my amazing friend DJ AyCE International to the VIP rooftop Johnny Platinum Plus Mixtape Volume 15 Hot Sauce release event in Brooklyn, New York. Wow… thats alot to say in one sentence LOL but trust me it was well worth the trip and my wordiness.

This VIP rooftop event felt like the right ambience and the visuals I captured on my camera from up there were so amazing I couldn’t believe I was actually there taking it all in. There was also a small fashion show from my favorite designer John Ashford featuring his amazing models who rocked his shoes and made me want to buy every pair. My day went from fabulous to amazing when I saw Johnny Platinum Plus make an appearance and boy was he just as amazing in person. If you haven’t heard of him you have to look him up (Insta:Johnnyplatinumplus) he’s energetic and loves the ladies but his passion is truly in his music. His mixtapes are hot (like hot sauce) and really awesome to listen to. He has two different mixtapes out right now – a Hip Hop version and a Latin version for those that love Reggaeton and latin music. There was also food, drinks and lots of meaningful, intelligent conversation. Okay, I won’t spoil it for you and you can check it out for yourself as the pictures speak for themselves….

Isn’t this view amazing…them clouds though!!

We’re ready, lets go…Microphone check please!

Turntables and Red Stripe Lager Beer, perfect combination

DJ AyCE International in the mix

DJ AyCE International took over the turntables for a bit – he was killing it!

If you need a change in music choice and your a huge hip hop fan – you gotta listen to the Johnny Platinum Plus Hip Hop Hot Sauce Mixtape …its AliceInColorland approved and its really “HOT”! Not a fan of Hip Hop – no problem, read on…

Johnny Platinum Plus also has a Hot Sauce Latin Mixtape for you! This one is amazing also, I was just listening to it in my car and I wanted to pull over and dance. Its a great mix of Reggaeton, Salsa, and a few Spanish classics that some of us Latin music lovers can relate to. Its perfectly mixed so you’ll be shocked at how great it sounds!

There beer was chilled beer for the beer lovers in attendance…doesnt that look refreshing? Trust me there was a lot more than what you see here!

There was also chicken and “Hot Sauce” which was a was a hit… it was really freakin good! Check out the Lvovpoland Vodka in the background!

Music, Beer, friends, and food…what more could you ask for!

Dj AyCE International and DJ Ty One in the house..they were enjoying themselves!

Oh and can’t forget about John Ashford’s Spring Fashion featuring his amazing, hot, sexy shoes! Here’s the beautiful model Zephora rocking these lovely see through boots out!

Check these out…love the colors!

These strappy thigh high boots rocked the house….Fire!!!

The models were making things hot up on this rooftop… those shoes though!

It was hard to pick a favorite out of all these beautiful designs!

Finally!! I was so excited to finally see Johnny Platinum Plus in person and put a face to the name (well almost LOL). Here he is posing with mixtape cover model Khaliseecakes…this made my day!

Johnny Platinum Plus charming the ladies, he’s amazing…you need to look him up today!

I was sad my time in New York City was nearing to an end but I’m happy to have been invited to this event. I got to spend time with DJ AyCE International and John Ashford at this event – I’m stoked I got a two for one LOL. I also got to listen to Johnny Platinums mixtape on a rooftop on the most beautifulest day and enjoy the scenery too. What more could I ask for? Trust me, this to me was priceless and I could never imagine that I would ever have such an awesome experience in Brooklyn, Ny… trust me these people know how to party LOL.

If your interested in any of Johnny Platinum Plus’ Mixtapes or future events please email me at Aliceincolorland15@gmail.com for more info!

Johnny Platinum Plus will be in the following cities: Washington, DC/Dallas, Texas/Atlanta, Georgia….Hit me up for more info!

 

BLOGGERS BREAK: FASHION WEEK CRAZINESS


14086231_10153980689629075_1681952171007572185_o

It’s here once again – Fashion Week and although I couldn’t attend every single show (I so wish I could) I had the opportunity to attend one amazing hell of a showstopper featuring Authentic by John Ashford Shoes.

Held in an impressive ballroom his show featured sexy models wearing his amazing shoe designs on a beautiful mosaic runway.  It also featured one of the youngest of the John Ashford models who in my opinion was just as professional or even more so as the veteran models walking the show. The atmosphere felt electric with energy as his beautiful models walked the runway and showed the audience what the Authentic shoe line was all about. It was an amazing show and the way that it was coordinated and its finale just rocked the crowds socks off.

 If you haven’t seen or heard of John Ashford (seriously where have you been – www.authenticbyjohnashford.com..visit his site now), you’re missing out on the best shoes and shoe designs ever. Check out the pics below for my experience at this event!

More thigh highs..of course, it wouldn’t be a John Ashford fashion show without at least a few of these amazing heels on hand!

and finally, these were the highlight of the show. There were many in the crowd that all gawked at the sight of these showstoppers. It really made many look twice and the audience went photo crazy as the model strutted the runway in these gold heels made for many sexy goddesses!

This fashion show was definitely one of John Ashford’s best of the best. Thank you John for inviting me and letting me experience the craziness (which I love) and the atmosphere of Fashion Week. Your shoes always continue to shock me every year with all the creativity and lovely designs you present to the fashion lovers everywhere.

Thank you to all the sponsors who helped make this event possible: Huberts Lemonade, Paula’s Pretzels, Smart Models, Maleku Jewelry, Fashion Frenzy Atl., High Fashion Music & Models, and Fashion Sizzle.

WHAT’S UP IN MENSWEAR!

20160202NYFWM-STREET-ONE-slide-RO8L-superJumbo

When I think of shoes my mind tends to gravitate towards women’s shoes. Not sure why that happens but its time for me to give some of the guys that are reading or browsing my blog some inspiration to put their shoes to good fashion use.

The ladies have it golden when it comes to shoes because there are after all, millions of possibilities such as styles, heel height, material, colors, and designers we could ever think of.  It almost seems like the shoes business is specifically made for us females – sorry fella’s, I sympathize with your dilemma. But don’t fret, I’m here to bring you a few shoe designs and a full outfit design to give you ideas on how to dress those shoes you’ve been wanting to buy or use and have never quite figured out how to dress it accordingly.

Fella’s this post is for you, enjoy…Love Alice!!

If you have sneakers in your closet, break those out! This is proof that you can wear a sport jacket with sneakers and jeans!

NEW-YORK-FASHION-WEEK-SPRING-2016-STREET-STYLE-9-of-26

Here’s proof that you can wear shoes without socks….no shame in that game!

street_style_paris_fashion_week_men_fall_winter_2016__639822150_1200x1799

This guy has the right idea. Wear a suit and tie but do wear that long jacket to accentuate your shoe game…Fab!!

Menstylist-George-Angelis-Milan-Fashion-Week-Spring-Summer-2016-Street-Style-0582

This guy above is wearing light colors with tassel loafers and of course no socks…see what did I tell ya? Socks are sometimes not a requirement in the men’s department.

Street style - London Collections Men Autumn Winter 2016

Of course, wearing a full Clements and Church suit and tie, London Sock Company socks with a Bera Bera tie and Tassel Loafers does wonders for you also.

Love these double monk strap shoes!!

street-style-summer-2016-1-copy

Last but not least, you can wear a vest over a polo with sockless shoes or you can roll up your pants at the bottom making a minimal cuff with a sport jacket to finally get the look you’ve been seeing in many men’s magazines. It’s all up to you – own it and feel as cool and comfortable wearing your look! I hope I’ve inspired you to look in your closet and break out the wardrobe you’ve been longing to show off –

Till next time..

DESIGNERS SPOTLIGHT: ANGEL SANCHEZ

Developing an appreciation for fashion at an early age, Angel Sanchez was surrounded by the reminders of the fashion industry in his mothers atelier. He practiced and studied architecture for many years but soon realized that fashion was his calling. Sanchez started his own fashion house rising to fame quickly in Latin America. Soon afterwards, his fashion house and company established roots in New York City.

Today he is well known for his bridal and evening wear collections that include a touch of drama with every piece. His amazing designs are also considered contemporary, architectural, and amazingly feminine. Let’s take a look at a few, shall we…

As you can see designer Angel Sanchez is all about color, different designs, and sophistication! You can clearly see hints of architecture in his collections which is truly amazing. You get the best of both worlds with Sanchez which is okay in my book. Can’t wait to see what designs he has for us in the future. This man is truly amazing and I appreciate his abilities to make us all look at his designs and want to try them all on. I know I would – what about you?

THE WEDDING DRESS OF YOUR DREAMS!

Sottero-and-Midgley-Mariam-5SS123-alt1

When I was a teenager, I would always fantasize about my dream wedding and how it would be. From the guests, the dress, my wedding party and even the church..for me it was just perfect, grand and magical. I would imagine myself looking like a pretty princess in my massive ballgown with the longest train ever and my wedding party would be looking fabulous as they compliment me and the hubs. Ugghhhh..lets all bring it back to reality shall we, as that kind of a wedding is the dream of millionaires and that my friend can be a massive undertaking. But we can all dream, can’t we? Yes, we most definitely – so speaking of weddings here’s a peak at some gorgeous wedding gowns that are the dreams of most brides of today. Fair warning though..this is not your moms wedding dress of the 60’s or 70, these dresses are made for those brides that can splurge on the dress and not even bat an eye. Take a look and see for yourself below and hope you have the wedding of a lifetime and find the dress of your dreams!

Maggie-Sottero-Bronwyn-Marie-12723-front

Maggie Sottero: (Bronwyn) This dress is amazing. Made with fluid lace and a flowy train, its just a simple dress made with elegance and the ribbon gives it just the touch of sophistication!

Jean Ralph Thurin

This dress designed by Jean Ralph Thurin is unbelievably sexy. The fluid fabric just hugs the curves and the cape just give this dress that extra WOW factor that it needs. Check out the top of the dress, the bodice gives this dress a certain look of fabulousness…Amazing!

hayley-paige-bridal-tulle-halter-high-neck-alabaster-crystal-horse-hair-flounced-chapel-train-6413_x1

Not too keen on the form fitting dresses, heres one that you may have to take a second look at. Designer Hailey Paige was definitely showing off when she designed this masterpiece! The touch of alabaster tulle gives this dress that desired hint of classiness it deserves. Brides that purchase this dress will feel like a queen for the day. Stunning!

EveOfMilady (Amalia Carrara Collection)

If you’re not familiar with Eve Of Milady, she is synonymous for making the most striking wedding gowns. I love to follow her designs (Instagram) because they are made for fantasy weddings that make a bride look stunning. She pays lots of attention to detail and it sets her designs apart from all others. This design above is from the Amalia Carrara Collection and it features a flare silhouette, sweep train, hand beading and a strapless fit. Seriously I would just buy this one to display it on a mannequin in my house – I know it sounds silly but Eve of Milady screams sexiness and attention to the most minute details with every design. What do you think?

Eve Of Milady (Amalia Carrara Collection)

For those brides that like to make an impressive entrance here’s another Eve of Milady (Amalia Carrara Collection) gown made of silk satin, silver and gold embroidery, and features a strapless dress. Look at all the detail on this one…God, how amazing it is!

Maggie-Sottero-Serencia-5MT118-front

Maggie-Sottero-Serencia-5MT118-back

This one is made my the amazing Maggie Sottero and look at all that loveliness on that model. Wow, I love it! This one is called Serencia and its from her platinum collection. Featuring glamorous tulle and opal organza, it screams romance at you from every angle. The crystal bodice will hug your curves and accentuate that layered skirt. The illusion back will give you just the touch of sexy sophistication needed. This dress is super romantic and I love every inch of it!

Maggie-Sottero-Pierce-5MN690-front

Maggie-Sottero-Pierce-5MN690-alt1

This Maggie Sottero (Pierce) wedding dress is for those ladies that love a more subtle sexiness while capturing an audiences attention while walking down the aisle. Its a classic lace sheath bodice with demure elusion lace. That grosgrain belt with Swarovski crystal just pulls the whole look together.

Paloma Blanca

Designer Paloma Blanca brings you this simple design for those brides that aren’t all about the bling and extravagant designs. I chose to feature the top part of this dress because its so simple and I love it when a dress has that small wow factor. In this case its that beaded insert that drew me in. Awesome, love it!

RomonaKeveza2

If you love lace then this is the dress for you. Designed by Romona Keveza – this dress looks like its made for the European bride. I guess its the endless lace and the veil that give me that impression. I’m not a fan of this much lace but for those that are I hope that this one somewhat appeals to you.

Maggie-Sottero-Melanie-4MS061-back

This Maggie Sottero (Melanie) dress is so feminine and chic – more lace and a peekaboo back for those ladies that love a fit and flare design.

Sottero-and-Midgley-Mariam-5SS123-alt1

Check out the front of this beauty!

Sottero-and-Midgley-Mariam-5SS123-back

Here we have a Maggie Sottero and Midgley dress…I think I don’t need to say anything on this one only that its beautiful and I so love it!

RomonaKeveza

I’m all about color so this dress by Romona Keveza would be the one I would wear to my own wedding LOL…its so different and beautiful!

RomonaKeveza

Call me weird but I’m in love with this design also! Imagine making a striking entrance with this amazing museum worthy piece on …I’m sold on this one!

So as you can see wedding dress shopping is all about the details. What kind of details are you looking for in a dress? Lace, satin, ballgown, form fitting, flared bottom, simple but elegant? Whatever your into, its all up to you and its your day so pick the gown that makes you smile and feel all giddy inside. Select the gown that will make your soon to be hubby desire you even more as you walk down the aisle to be his better half. Its your day, make it about you and no one else. Your a queen for the day so let your inner most fantasies begin!

Much luck to you in your dress search and on your wedding day!

MODEL CRUSH: CHARLEE FRASER

000000543340-Charlee_Fraser-squaremedium

Me being the fashionista that is all about fashion, style, and anything remotely related to such, I am obsessed with models and their careers. You could say sincerely that I have “Model Crush” LOL but seriously what person that loves fashion doesn’t. You gotta either love them, envy them, or follow their careers.

We have all seen endless model images all over magazine pages and social media. I seriously believe models always blaze trails wherever they stand. From Alek Wek, Heidi Klum, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelista just to name a few, these beautiful ladies have made their mark in the modeling industry. They have laid the foundation for future models and have left them a few pages in the book on how to be successful in this demanding industry. Yes its grueling but if it weren’t for some of these ladies, we wouldn’t have the beauties that are popping up in various social media outlets, magazines and elsewhere. Agreed? Yes?

Today I would love to introduce you to one phenomenal model and she’s a true bombshell. Her name is Charlee Fraser and she’s worked with several high end Australian photographers.  She’s from New South Wales and she’s is making true waves in the modeling industry by appearing in several campaigns, editorial shoots, and runway shows. She is also from the indigenous Awabakal people of New South Wales. How cool is that? She’s very photogenic and its obvious that the camera loves her in every way possible. She is signed to Ford New York and Premier in London. We should be seeing more of this Australian beauty all over social media, runways, and magazines. Let’s check out her pics and really envy this beauty, shall we?

520771-800w

Speechless..this picture speaks to me!

538405-800w

She really does look amazing from every angle!

520775-800w

000000543240-Charlee_Fraser-squaremedium

Seriously? Is she stunning or what?

20130326_RIO_07_021cut-786x1024

She is fierce – this image has so many levels to it!

charlee.jjd_.-687

Even in Black and White she rocks the images, Ughhhh I’m so jealous LOL!

charleesendThis explains why I’m obsessed with her, she can certainly wear the clothes and model them well!

charlle

She’s on fire…Girl, you are rocking it!

SONY DSC

Her eyes look into your soul, can you feel her passion?

These pictures definitely take me back to a time when at 15 years old and I wanted to be a model. At 5 feet tall and 100 pounds I was told I was too short therefore I quickly deferred my love of modeling for photography, reading about fashion and blogging about it. Since then, I have not felt discouraged but it has empowered me to find a different outlet to express my love of fashion. I now read as many fashion magazines, blogs, and keep up with my social media accounts as much as I can. Some may say its excessive but I beg to differ. The more you keep up with whats going on in the fashion industry the more you learn and apply that toward your ultimate goal of success. Besides fashion is always evolving its never consistent and still therefore my career needs to be evolving as well.

Hope you liked this featured model and look out for more of her work online and in magazines. Check out her instagram here: @Charleefraser – Tumblr: Charleefraser.tumbler.com

Stay fabulous my friends!!!

SUMMER NAILS

fdg-24

Once again its summer and I’m so inspired by everything I lay my eyes on! With that thought in mind – Its been about 3 years since I’ve been without nails and the more I see them in photos on instagram and other media outlets the more I miss them. I have a much awaited trip outside the US coming up soon and I’m not sure if I will be obtaining my nails again. It all depends on how I think about it as there is so much that you can’t do when you have the dang things on. On the flip side, they look so beautiful with all the bling and details though. How can you not LOL. The struggle is so real when it comes down to it. Can you relate?

I guess my decision all depends on if I would like to keep dishing the money for updating them or not. Seriously, being beautiful and keeping it up is really expensive in a way if you really take a look at it.

Anyways, the coming weeks will be a factor as to whether I take the plunge into nail beautification or not. Until then, I leave you with a snippet of what kinds of designs I am really contemplating for my new set of sexy nails if it does turn out that I do go all in.

Decision coming soon….

2b71db13ae0250a8d85c9043aa184fbe

Seriously ..is this not pretty?

2cdfa82203ef65368d434de1ed275883

I’m all about details and these would be the type of nails I would be looking at for me. I love the gold and stones.

41d7a6953c94c876138488b69569c5f2

I know this is on toes but it would look great just as well on hands too.

4635a63b00174b913bc6027f1f8aa4c2

Yessss, Fabulous!

6361b09107e4c179656542aa247d81cb

Isn’t this design so simple yet elegant?

6946107cb0e182b9c4fb205647596294

Once again, who’s to say that this design can’t be on your hands. Love the combination of colors!

a6c9bc99d333f5e8fa0984433023d7ba

Don’t like all the bling, heres a simple design thats also pretty

I think these look great for any occasion!

cf55222f89fd71b98a43397928508c41

Claws for days and cool color combination!

With so many options and designs, how can I not fall in love with nails again. Frankly, I feel very bare without them and my natural nails look so god awful. As I think about it more and more I think I will be getting mine done soon. I just hope I don’t regret it money wise. Wish me luck everyone and pray that I make the best decision for myself.

Thanks for stopping by….

SUMMERS LOCKS OF LOVE

8e24aa5ef3259a188f6452b22a5b421b

Summer has once again returned but in my neck of the woods it hasn’t returned with a vengeance. Thank God for that because it can get brutal in a quick minute and my hair surely doesn’t do well in humidity. But oh well, let me just enjoy the summer and keep it positive, Yes…Yes!

As you might have guessed by now today’s subject of my choice is hair. To be more specific hairstyles and color. I love it when people decide to explore and be daring with their locks of love. It just reminds me that we can all be unique and beautiful no matter what race or nationality you may be. Now that its summer that means that hair stylists have their work cut out for them as weddings, birthdays, baptisms, graduations and just the typical family reunion are put together. Its one heck of a good reason to make up a good excuse to get a fresh color and a cut.

With that in mind, lets just take a look at a few that I’ve archived just for this post…which one’s your favorite?

She’s rocking the long, shiny, beautiful hair that makes anyone want to go to a salon and get theirs done the same way!

So what’s your take on summer hair? Should you cut it short, long, color it, or just rock it natural? I believe in doing as you see fit. If you wanna have it long and curly by all means go for it! If you wanna rock a short, shaved, bob thats all amazing too. The most important thing to remember is that whatever haircut, style, or color you pick it’s what makes you unique and beautiful. You rock whatever your heart desires and do it like its no ones business. Feel confident about how you look and smile at all times. Make yourself happy and look gorgeous while you’re feeling yourself.

I really hope this has inspired you to at least look into getting into a salon this summer and I would love to know which one of these styles gave you an epiphany for a cut, color, or style that you like.

Stay Beautiful My Lovely Ladies!

Last but not least, this stunningly embroidered wine colored dress. I love this color and the top part of it as it makes the dress look so chic.

I love the look of the 1920’s and that whole flapper movement. It was one of those era’s that I wish would be revived somehow. The dresses, headbands with feathers in them, short pixie cuts, and the glitz and glam were all the rage in that era. I would have loved to be a fly on the walls of the ballrooms in order to get a first perspective on what it was like to live in that part of history. Sadly that will never happen but seeing Alberta’s designs brought me to that place in time and I appreciate that.

I really think that Alberta Ferretti did an amazing job at capturing that essence of this movement in a fashion form. Well done Alberta Ferretti, can’t wait to see what you have in store for us next season! Arrivederci!!
