GOODBYE SUMMER..

7eb3f10a47e9177f642ce8e718e25f71

Summers on its last leg and its obvious that the warm sun and lovely humidity is on its way out. While most of us are dreading winter rearing its ugly head at us and others are anticipating it, I’m over here thinking about all the lovely foliage and amazing photo ops that I will be capturing in the next few months. With this in mind, lets celebrate one of the lovely fall colors: Orange!

Rock On – What a beauty!

Orange shoes on the most important day of your life, now thats different!

As you can see orange is an amazing, bright, fun color and it highly represents a most loved or a most hated season of the year! For me, I love it because of the trees changing and the amazing sunsets but I hate it because it symbolizes that my beloved summer season is almost ending. I have the best of both worlds over here so I might as well embrace it, right?

Is this color one of your favorites? Could it be one of your favorites?

Orange you glad you stopped by….

Till the next post ~ Alice

BEAUTY AND THE STREETS

IMG_0227

There is no doubt that traveling can be a great source of inspiration especially fashion related inspo. So when I decided to head to NYC for some much needed brainstorming I knew exactly who I needed to link up with to get it, my amazing friend John Ashford of Authentic by John Ashford! Every time I link up with him I just know I’m going to have an epic time! Getting together with John is always interesting because first he’s an amazing photographer and shoe designer and when he does outdoor photoshoots (which I love) its always interesting the way passers by react to the process of it all. So when I attended an outdoor shoot I was so excited because after all, it is a John Ashford Photoshoot and this was the refreshing inspiration I needed.

This particular photoshoot was situated in the Bronx and the location had an amazing art mural that you’ll see in the pics below….Beauty and the streets was definitely Caliente especially with Gabriella Rosado CEO/Designer Talent Coordinator of Break Bread Fashions providing the clothes featured in this post and Model Stephanie turning heads literally stopping traffic! Way to go ladies…you rocked it!

These two beautiful ladies did an amazing job, Congrats girls – can’t wait to see the final results!

IMG_0125.JPG

Oops, almost forgot this dope backdrop for the shoot..its really cool!

When you see models in magazines and on billboards, you tend to think that they have the easiest job in the world…just pose, always have a smile or a provocative look and be pretty but in all fairness its one of the hardest jobs in the world. These beautiful ladies made it seem easy even though we had to contend with the heat, traffic, and curious people with full blown cellphones out which can be a photographers nightmare. But these ladies killed this shoot and John Ashford was amazing at getting that pose just the right way and made the shoot look effortless and fun. This is why I love outdoor photoshoots, I learn from one of the best in the industry, I take all that inspiration and turn it into beautiful lifelong memories that teach me what fashion and style is all about! These moments are true learning moments and as a photographer myself I appreciate every second that I am in the same room or space with John Ashford!

Thank you John…. I appreciate everything about you!

 

 

 

E’TAE – THE NATURAL WAY!

Hair struggles, we all have them and its frustrating as hell! You buy this product to combat that product and you buy that product to combat this problem and the cycle goes on and on and on. Well today I want to let you know that you will never need to seek out the holy grail anymore – I may have your solution and its hella good – at least for me it is!

I’m puerto rican and I have the worst curly ass, hair girl issues ever… if its not frizz, its endless split ends, if its not that its trying to find the right products to help straighten my curly unruly hair!

IMG_9001

(Hi, its me Alice! Check out my hair, super poofy)

You see, why its frustrating for me? This hair needs management and the right products asap! So about three years ago, I turned to a salon and tried the Keratin treatment, a cut, and a color for $150 and boy did I think that that was the “it” product. When I left that salon with my new hair all bouncy, shiny and looking fabulous I thought to myself – this is it my – must have hair care product. The treatment lasted about 1 year and a half before I needed another treatment and thats where my expensive hair issues came about.  I proceeded to contact 2 salons in my area and they both wanted between $150 and $200 dollars and that was just for the Keratin, no color or any extras! The extras would be much more and I really didn’t want to dish out more than $150. So I figured – why not do the Keratin treatment myself and save money? So I bought a treatment off of Amazon and now I understand why its so expensive to do at a salon. The process is extensive, lengthy, and tedious but it really is worth it – if and only if your either willing to dish out the money or do it for yourself. I chose the latter and thats where I’ve been with my hair care till a few weeks ago.

IMG_1527

Keratin Treatment I’ve been using…

So about a week ago I saw a video of a girl getting her hair done with some natural products being applied to her hair. The hair stylist was explaining how the product worked and I was impressed by the whole process. When the hairstylist finished the girls hair, it was soft, shiny and bouncy and she had tight curled hair to begin with so I was shocked that any product could have those fabulous results. This impressed me and I decided to take the challenge and try it for myself. I knew that there was a money back guarantee so I was even more intrigued by it.

IMG_1505

Love the results

IMG_1510

So Soft and manageable

IMG_1511

I love it

The companies name is E’tae Natural Products and apparently they’ve been in business for a while now but I have never heard of them before (not sure where I’ve been LOL). I placed my order and a few weeks later my products arrived and I tried them following the instructions to the letter. At first, I didn’t see a significant difference but two weeks later I redid the treatment and my hair was looking amazing. I couldn’t believe the shine, body, and softness i was experiencing! I was in love and I vowed to make this my new hair care product. I can’t believe I’ve been without it this long and I truly recommend it to all of my lovely readers. Theres a money back guarantee so if its not for you just return it but first try it twice and I bet that by the second time you will be impressed. If you love natural products this is for you. You can style your hair any way you want after using this… Be it curly, blowdried, flat ironed – its all up to you with this product!

IMG_1526

This is the most requested product of the whole line…The Carmel Treatment

IMG_1525

Carmelux Shampoo …so good for us curly haired girls!

IMG_1523

Silk Conditioner… don”t forget to use your wide toothed comb with this gem!

IMG_1524

The final step before you style … apply a small pea size of this and you’re hair will thank you! *Note – this product has a really funky smell to it, I believe it’s the clary sage thats giving it that strong smell. I’ve learned to mix it in with a coconut scented hair cream that I’ve been using for shine so it masks the strong smell that gives me a tiny headache sometimes. If you find the smell too much, mask it with your favorite hair product and voila, problem solved!

IMG_1528

One last look at that texture and shine LOL….Here’s where you can get yours ….E’tae Natural products

 

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!

 

THE RED EDITION!

I know Valentines Day is long gone and celebrated but it still merits a post that I know you probably will enjoy. Did you celebrate the day with your loved one? I truly hope you did because I think that this is the most beautiful holiday on the American calendar and it deserves a special place on my blog! Hey, people even get married on this day so why not, right?

Why is this day so anticipated with us Americans? Well, for starters, V-Day  is associated with cupid – you know that cute little guy shooting arrows with his bow, the color red, red roses in a vase with a cute bow, chocolates in cute heart shaped boxes, sexy greeting cards with spicy quotes and pure anticipated steamy love! Boy that was a lot of saucy thinking on my part LOL. Cheesy for some, delicious for others…your choice.

Let’s see what it is about this holiday that makes it so awesome ….shall we?

THE JOHN ASHFORD TRUNK SHOW

15443150_10154281733264075_8922832747485162394_o

A few days ago, I struck up a conversation with a friend and the subject of my fashion experiences came up. While I reminisced about my invites to various exclusive shows I mentioned that I had been invited to a Trunk Show that would be taking place in a few days. She didn’t know what a trunk show was so I proceeded to inform her of what it was about and how fun they are. She was very excited and wanted to know when the next one would be happening. I informed her that she would personally be invited to the next show and we would go together!

Now I am assuming that most of my followers who read my blog would know the fashion terminology but for those that don’t, I will tell you what a trunk show is and no it isn’t a show that sells or shows off trunks for you to buy LOL. Heres the definition of trunk show: a sales event for showing merchandise to staff and select customers. That, my readers was exactly what it was and more…

 Last week, Shoe designer John Ashford called me with some amazing news – he was having his private trunk show event in Clinton Hills Brooklyn, Ny and I had first dibs as blogger/photographer for that day! You can imagine how excited I was and I didn’t hesitate to accept his invitation. My excitement for the rest of the week till then as you can imagine was through the roof. Being a fashion blogger does have its perks and I’m so glad I could experience it and share this with my readers! Take peek at the pictures from the Authentic by John Ashford’s private trunk show sponsored by Barefoot Wines! Oh and I purchased a few pairs of amazing shoes of course!

COLOR: WINTER WHITE

2895dd3b9bf0a23f8834289d1a7b641c

In the mainstream world, the majority of fashion conscious individuals who are aware of trends will notice that winter is a good time to break out that white color of everything. If you would ask me today what my least favorite color in fashion would be, I will honestly tell you its white. All type and shades of white.. winter white, white white, soft white, eggshell white, bright white, Ultra  white — heck every white color there is out there. I love white in other areas like interior design, makeup, underwear, hair color etc – but white fashion wise, there is no way in hell you will catch me wearing white in any form unless its flattering to my figure. Lets face it, one reason I have a love/hate relationship with white is that white does not look amazing on every silhouette and mine is one of them. If you can pull if off, I say more power to ya! Congratulations..I envy you! White also looks amazing in other areas that are not fashion related which we will take a closer look at below too just for fun.

[All White Kitchen] – that chandelier is gorgeous!

While checking emails on my computer today I received an email sent to me from a blog subscriber that stated “white is the trending {it} color for this season.” This person is correct, if you notice it is really trending.

white-dress-red-carpet-02

[Above: White made its strong presence among the actresses]

The red carpet was the best place to see this shade in all its glory and brightness. The actresses were looking stunning in the various designs in white. Another place where this clean cut color was noticed was in the Republican National Convention where Melania Trump wore her white Roksana Dress and it was stated that it wasn’t like her to wear such color. On the flip side, we also saw Hilary Clinton wear a white pantsuit at the Democratic National Convention. Hmm, see a trend here?

[Above: Good example of how white brings out the obvious in other colors]

So what give with white being a popular color this particular season?

Well, for starters – white is considered powerful, neutral, clean, pure and it matches or coordinates well with most other colors. Its a good reason to look at your wardrobe and start considering the possibilities.

prove41

My second reason that the color white for me is such a huge fashion faux pas is because I also know that my wardrobe wouldn’t be able to stay crispy white for very long. Klutz Central here….beware or walk on eggshells!

Good luck and wear “WHITE” to your hearts content! Someday, I will feel comfortable with this evasive “beautifully pure” color that is white but till then in fashion – I will avoid it like the plague – unless its a scarf, handbag or a hat then I will truly embrace it wholeheartedly. Hoping for the best of luck in every “WHITE” color love ..may the fashion angels be with you today and always!

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!

img_0370

img_0377

Beautiful color combinations and attention to details

Gold…who doesn’t like gold and they’re thigh highs, What!! These were made for a queen and they’re truly my definition of show stoppers!

img_0407Check out the details…yesssss!

img_0408

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!

img_0412

For those Grecian Goddesses who dare to be fierce…work it girl!

img_0417

Oh Yes..more sexiness!

img_0421

For those ladies that love that green color, I think these will appeal to you!

img_0423

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.

Till the next one…

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!

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!!

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.

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!!

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..

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?
