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!

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?

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?

Speechless..this picture speaks to me!

538405-800w

She really does look amazing from every angle!

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

afaa4511e6531a67fad9d424b5d803da

This design is amazing

afeeb6eb36cc118943a9ea5a4e2fe1f3

Ever since I saw this color I just love it!

bbb1b45645303bd1cf51e9fcf17b3b88

Uhhhhh…need I say more, stunning!

ceaecd28789bc6baa1321425de9ba6bc

Flowers are always in style – this is a cute,fun, design!

a6c9bc99d333f5e8fa0984433023d7ba

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?

6dc9c0b1728677735abb085d13a06053

What a beautiful hairstyle, would be amazing for that summer concert that you’ve been wanting to attend.

b053c80dcc28fba6e4dbe49458c68212

Love the cut and color of this one…looks so pretty and goddess like!

long-ombre-hairstyle-2016-450x600

Long with Ombre highlights…so pretty!

2014-fall-winter-2015-short-hairstyles

I’ve always loved the short, wavy, cuts like this one with the blonde streaks in between. This one looks so badass on this model.

Pink-Hairstyle-for-Short-Hair

For those of you that like color thats on the opposite side of the spectrum …check this one out! What do you think? Its definitely different.

63b950d503ab0dff3d1faef7dbeec0a7

Long layers with that beautiful color…yes, please! I would definitely rock this!

embedded_bob_with_side_swept_bangs

Bob haircut with side swept bangs…Gorgeous!

cute-beach-waves-hairstyle-with-blunt-bangs-for-long-light-blonde-hair-2016

Love this color and the cut of course but that color is so summer-ish!

hairstyles-for-black-women-trends-2014-2015-wallpaper

For my lovely black women, this ones for you and me of course, Oh so beautiful – I would rock this!

Awesome-Wavy-Pixie-Cut

Yes ladies, you can also rock a short pixie cut like no ones business, stunning!

Black-Girl-Short-Haircut

Short curls can be your thing if your not into the long hair trend…still rockin it!

67e55733cc8e480b0d310c1261e0ad59-400x600

You can also rock a natural high bun which to me looks so simple but elegant!

Amazing-Women-Black-Hair-Color-Cover-Picture-Wallpaper

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!

GO VINTAGE OR RETHINK YOUR WARDROBE!

While surfing for writing inspiration, I happened to stumble upon the vintage designs of Italian designer Alberta Ferreti’s Spring 2016 Limited Edition Vintage Collection. If the pictures in this blog post doesn’t make you want to go out and seek any one of the beautifully, designed pieces ahead then I really don’t know what will. Check out the amazing collection below. Here you will find luxurious dresses, beautifully stitched pieces that further empower the Femme Fatal in any female.

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-01

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-09

What a beautiful dress but feast your eyes on that snake belt and the shoes…daring!

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-10

And naturally there has to be a dress to go along with that stunning coat you just saw above!

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-11

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-19

This takes that little black dress to a whole new level!

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-20

Love all the embroidery on this pant suit as it makes this outfit look rich and sexy!

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-21

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!!

AUTHENTIC BY JOHN ASHFORD AND SHADETH FALL/WINTER PRESENTATION

DSC_0090

Fashion week is in full swing and this week I’m in Nyc. I love to be in the city for exciting events, meeting lovely people, and of course my obsession attending and blogging about fashion shows wherever they may be. Yesterday I had the exciting opportunity to attend Authentic by John Ashford and Shadeth’s Fall/Winter presentation and if you missed it you definitely missed out on a really great show. The event was held at Voga Lounge & Grill, Nyc and the decor was really chic and it was the perfect setting for the models to show off their Authentic by John Ashord’s amazing collection of sexy shoes. The models were also wearing fashions by designer Shadeth – if you like unique fashions then check out her site at SHADETH.COM – her designs are amazing! Check the pics below….

I always try to attend John Ashford’s shows as often as I can and I’m so happy that he invited me to this one, thank you Mr. Ashford – As always it was amazing, sexy, chic, and beautiful. I love to attend these shows and will continue as long as I can. If you’re in the city or can find the time to make it out here, please do I guarantee if will be worth your time and effort to attend. This one was a huge success and the models were so professional and did an amazing job.

I would also like to take moment to thank a few important attendees at the show: Barries House Coffee, DJ Ayce International, and to the lovely Justina (model, singer with a killer look and lovely voice)  – Thank you so much for an exciting show!

ARE YOU READY TO WEAR ALTUZARRA THIS SPRING?

KIM_0573

I know that Spring is far from arriving anytime soon and Fashion Week is long gone. We are all getting back to our much needed normalcy in life and some of us are thinking ahead to the next fashion frenzy. The stress of trying to get to every show possible with out breaking a heel and making sure that you are impeccably dressed even if your uncomfortable is all a blur so now its time to focus on the beauty of what fashion designers have in store for next season.

Today I want to focus on the brand Altuzarra and its Spring Ready to Wear Collection. This season Altuzarra has provided us with long flowy dresses, leather basket weave skirts, tops, dresses and even gingham style seperates but let me not spoil it for you, have a good look for yourself!

KIM_0055

I’m not a big fan of Gingham but this wardrobe selection seems to soothe my dislike for that particular fabric!

KIM_0649

Not to fond of the neckline on this dress but the fabric is just beautiful, I would dare to wear!

KIM_0290

I love this basketweave leather vest its so pretty and different –  I love different!

KIM_0573

This ensemble is out of this world amazing…looks Gothic!

KIM_0323

Hears that leather basketweave vest in black

KIM_0629

Pretty dress and I love the neckline, just wish I was taller to be able to wear such a beautiful dress!

KIM_0597

Now this one I can definitely do without looking like I’m wearing a nightgown – (sorry short girl here LOL)! I love the way its paired with a long black short blazer!

KIM_0385

Oh yes, I’m in love with this skirt – beautiful!

KIM_0359

Now this dress I wouldn’t be able to do but for those that can pull it off Kudos to you girl! So Jealous!

KIM_0521

This would be great for my next fashion event, I may just put this on my must have list!

KIM_0421

Sexy and figure flattering, my kind of outfit!

 KIM_0400

Lovely dress with beautiful floral patterns, perhaps this one will be on my have list also. Its really figure flattering and sexy, I love it!

Altuzarra has definitely caught my attention and this Spring is looking mighty lovely. The colors, fabrics and flower patterns are just so figure flattering and chic. For those that can pull off some of these items I’m really jealous of you right now and for those shorter girls like me as you can see we have options. They may not be what we are lusting over on this blog but we do have sexy options that keep us fashionably relevant. I’m happy if I can at least see myself in just a handful of these, hey – that’s better than nothing right? I leave it at that for now and let me know what you think of these Spring fashions, are they your must haves for the season or not really? Comment below!

Happy Shopping my dear friends!
