I’ve been browsing through street-style photographs of the men stomping around during men’s fashion week in Paris for two weeks now. Scrolling through the photos like a teen cyber-stalking her favorite boy band. Continue reading “Men Style: Fashion Imitation Is The Sincerest…” »
I know you guys are visual creatures, so just like in school, pay attention to the picture. Even though this guide is focusing on how a suit should fit, use this image as reference next time to decide to get a tailored blazer, or pants, a tux, anything on your back that you’ll like to make an impression with.

One pretty dress, three beautiful looks. This Gypsy Junkies Dylan Bustier Dress was originally meant for a holiday story I was putting together, but with my impatience I needed to share it NOW! Patience is a virtue, ….I’m typing that while nodding my head no and don’t you agree? With this burn-out velvet piece, I couldn’t just do one head-to-toe look. The more the merrier, and easier on the wallet is what we all like. Continue reading “Touch Some Velvet Real Good!” »

After the second time viewing the video, I just focused on the tailored pieces on both men and women in this Real Fantasies series directed by Ippolito Pestellini Laparelli and Fauto Fantinuoli.

My love of fashion does have limits, one of them is altering my body.
-Losing weight to fit into a sample size. Not going to happen since I love food to much and these curves aren’t going anywhere!
-Getting tattoos to document a moment in my life. I have enough scars and bruises to remind me of those moments don’t need the ink.
-What about piercing my ears to don some earrings. I like my ears hole free, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wear the earrings! Take it to the clothes my fellow fashion brethren.

Jewelry designer Lauren Ruicci showing us silver is here to stay!
Laruicci’s mastermind Lauren Ruicci has tons to share besides jewelry and the evidence was made clear once she opened her YSL bag to reveal tons of beauty and makeup goodies from her travels to Europe, as well as pieces from her jewelry collections to satisfy her silver jewelry obsession. If this is the way Lauren travels, airport security will have to decide if they should hold her or help themselves to what’s inside her golden bag.
“The beach collection I wore the entire weekend and have been wearing every since.” Lauren reveals while pouring out only silver Laruicci originals from a gold clutch. Her explanation, “You run out the door so fast, you have to get adorned on the way to you destination, and if you’re traveling you really don’t know what you want to wear or who you’re going want to be that weekend.” Spoken like a true jewelry designer who rocks her own creations like no other person can!
