Friday Frocks: Flip It & Reverse It

By |June 6th, 2014|Friday Frocks, Why Did You Wear That?|

Not only are double duty beauty products helpful for packing, so are dresses that are multifunctional and able to be worn in more than one way. Whether it’s a maxi dress that moonlights as a skirt or a frock that’s altogether reversible, having options that take up half the space are magic in and of themselves.  So, pack light, put your thing down, flip it, and reverse it.

Setting the Mood: Love and Hip Hop

By |November 18th, 2013|Setting the Mood|

90s hip hop r&b fashionWhile the 90’s grunge look has its modern day resurgence, let us not forget that during that very same time, there was another musically inspired fashion movement happening simultaneously.  On the other end of the spectrum of looking halfway homeless and heroin chic, hip hop and R&B stars were living the luxurious life in leathers, furs, and overall excess.  Always designer driven, street style is still just as in love with labels today as it was twenty some odd years ago.  For added interest this go round, grunge and hip hop glamour can be cleverly combined to create the ultimate 90’s throwback.

Setting the Mood: Life in Plastic

By |November 11th, 2013|Setting the Mood|

In a world full of fakes, who needs any more plastic than what’s already out there?  There are very few things made of plastic that I can honestly endorse: Barbies, credit cards, Legos, and breasts.  Interestingly enough, it would appear that many designers have revisited this once shunned material in the form of accessories and outerwear.  This time around, wearing plastic and PVC look more sophisticated than the run of the mill Missy Elliot music video.  To add sheen to an otherwise casual outfit opt for plastic rather than pearls.
