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?

So after you’ve viewed the images above, don’t you think that Valentine’s day is worth all the hoopla after all? You’ve gotta admit it is one of the sexiest holidays ever and there are so many ways to celebrate it. You decide for yourself and thank me later…better yet go back and review the images above then come back and visit the blog again for more inspiration and sexiness…

Gotta run… Love Alice!

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?

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….

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

Isn’t this dress amazing …I would love to have this picture just to frame it and look at it in my bedroom. So beautiful!

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

This dress is made for a goddess, don’t you think so?

alberta-ferretti-limited-edition-aw-2016-13

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

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!!

CLARRIA COSMETICS, YOU NEED TO TRY THIS!

IMG_4305

A few weeks ago I got contacted by a new cosmetics company called Clarria Cosmetics and I was thrilled and excited beyond belief. I love makeup and if you give me makeup to try I am all over it. They were also offering a sponsorship/partnership and that made the email more interesting to me. They also offered to send me samples of their foundation so I could try it out. The box above was delivered and I was in love with the presentation of their product. The lettering and the black box were beautiful but more than that they were generous with their samples and I couldn’t wait to try and find my shade out of the 7 shades that they sent me. The little foundation vials that the product was packaged in were so adorable that I almost didn’t want to disturb them.

IMG_4351

As I took each and every one out of the box, the hard part was trying to find my shade but I think that it wasn’t that hard once I saw that some were more darker or lighter than others. After much trial and error I found my shade and it was shade Lucky 005 although I also fell in love with Lucky 006 as it looked amazingly pretty with the completion of my blush and lipstick on so its a toss up between these two. Will have to check on the 006 shade with the help of natural light and see how it really looks on me but I love both shades either way. Check out the pics below of my before and after makeup transformation….

IMG_4368

 Below I took several pics of my before and after and I love the results….

IMG_4299

As you can see the makeup looks amazing on me…I love it and that pretty box is everything.

IMG_4358

Here’s my picture before applying my Clarria foundation shade…

IMG_4355

Here’s my after pic..love the way it looks. The makeup goes on easily and its very smooth going on the skin. Fabulous ..truly fabulous!

IMG_4356

My makeup looks and feels awesome!

IMG_4357

One more after pic..I love it!

I have a feeling that this isn’t going to be the last I’ve heard of this company. My order will be in sooner that what I really thought. I really can’t afford to pass up this amazing opportunity to try Clarria Cosmetics..stay tuned for more updates on this company and their products.

Special thanks to Clarria Cosmetics for letting me try and review your products. Hope to create and keep maintaining a lasting relationship with your company for years to come!

BALMAIN X H&M LOOKBOOK…YOU’VE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS!

04-balmain-h-and-m

Its about time…I heard about this collection via close friends of mine who were gawking over it online and I thought …no way is Balmain the brand of chicness collaborating with H&M. I mean come on how unusual is that right?

Well its becoming the norm in the fashion scene. Big designers are now hooking up with corporate brands in order to cater to the younger fashionistas who normally wouldn’t shop in the major designer stores. I don’t know if this would be great for fashion lovers everywhere but I will take it and strut down my chic runway happily.

The name Balmain speaks so much to me. Its classy, sexy, chic and its one brand that will never get old with time. I think Balmain is starting to come of age with the new generations of future fashionistas. Now they can wear a piece of the Balmain collection.

The collection itself is embellished with silk, embroidery, and even beading. This collection looks very sexy and chic to me so let me show you what Balmain has designed for us fashionistas. Hope you like it!

02-balmain-h-and-m

These colors are so beautiful together

06-balmain-h-and-m

The jacket to die for …sequins, sequins and more sequins!

05-balmain-h-and-m

I want this dress ..its stunning!

11-balmain-h-and-m

This is a dream..what wouldn’t I do for this look. I mean, how chic is this?

14-balmain-h-and-m

The pants go very well with these jackets…I want it! Look at those shoes and that sexy clutch!

19-balmain-h-and-m

Yes…love it!

17-balmain-h-and-m

Red is always a fabulous color and it makes these outfits just call to you! Notice the beautiful red clutch on the model (right) and the sexy handle that accentuates the sexy red color!

There you have it, Balmain x H&M are really tugging at our heart strings with this collection. With that said, who’s getting at least one piece from this collection? Let me know, I would love to see your pics!

Happy Shopping my friends!

THE BUZZ: NYC FASHION WEEK 2015

This past weekend was an amazing one for this fashionista! I attended two events, one in which my dearest friend John Ashford of Authentic by John Ashford Shoes was featuring his designs from the John Ashford Art of the Shoe Show sponsored by Who Wore That Magazine and Huberts Lemonade. His often colorful, sometimes seriously sexy, and at times unbelievably amazing shoes are really a sight to see…really – you’ve got to have a look at them. Wait, what am I saying? Ladies, you have to own a few of his shoes. They’re handmade plus they’re amazing and he only makes them custom so no two pairs are alike…I like that! I already own a couple from his exclusive collection and the fashionista in me is loving his designs. Don’t wait – get a pair, or two, now!

For the second event of my day, I met the lovely Martu E. Freeman – Parker owner and founder of M.E.F Style Report and she really kicked it up a notch for me. She invited me to Style Fashion Week at Gotham Hall and I couldn’t have been more happier to attend. I was right there happily holding my camera in hand, ready to get my much awaited fill of a fashionista’s dream. The moment was exciting and the event was fabulous.

The designers that had their collections featured were: Quynh Paris, Esosa, Santa Clara Moda, Chrisber’y, and Anthony Rubio. The show was amazing and the models looked beautiful. The designs were stunning and featured beautiful colorful, flowery headpieces, flowy dresses in stunning, vibrant, colors and there were even beautiful bridal dresses that were fit for a few goddesses. Oh and I met and took a picture with a celebrity from Project Runway – how cool is that!

Between the anticipation of seeing what shoes Mr. John Ashford had designed for the event and the fashion show I attended, I have to admit it was overwhelming but it felt great to be available to experience these moments. The events were successful and I got to meet some amazing people along the way. I’m always grateful to meet such talented individuals at these events that can inspire me in any way. Can’t wait till the next one – check out the pics of the events below! Thank you, I appreciate you all!
