greetings my bloggy followers. i just wanted to reach out to any readers/ stylist/ anyone who works in the fashion industry in NYC. so anyways, i'm coming out there next week and i'm going out for drinks and dancing with a friend from college and if you're in the city come and hang in the city with us. also are there any jobs out there? i want to move to nyc, like asap... by news years. my lease will be up and i am trying to roll out! so if you know of anything could you send some information my way...pretty please??? *RESUME AVAILABLE ON REQUEST* love you guys

so i was watching the tyra show today and she featured a product from dkny called the cozy cardigan. it retails for 195.00 basically it is a silk and cashmere blend wool draped cardigan. i would style it paired with leggings or skinny jeans and knee boots. or with a super tight mini or mid knee lenght skirt with some pumps or strappy heels. fabulous indeed!

and here is a video showing you how to style it.

covert mission...completed

i traveled to dallas last week to do a photo shoot with my best friend who is launching soon. she sells great quality human hair and i was the model/ make up artisit and STYLIST. so this was an opportunity for us all the gain knowledge in our perspective career fields. I must say after looking at the photos i did see things that if i were the stylist behind the scenes i would have caught on to. i had such a good time and i will leave you with a teaser image or two, they have not been retouched yet but if you are interested in purchasing any of the hair email me and i will pass on her info to you. thanks!

stella mc cartney internship

so i got an email from a reader who landed an internship with fabulous designer stella mc cartney : holds for applause :) : and she needs a little inspiration for comfortable office wear, but still wants to like the fashionista that she is. I am thinking in terms of jeans, tights, a blazer, and some accessories. I am sure you already have the basic white tee, v neck t shirts, etc..

Let us begin::

i love costume gold jewelery, this look is a bit much/ maybe not. but gold bangles are always great
bib necklaces are soo in, also if it is cold add with a sweater or turtleneck & it is also great with tank tops
the bf blazer is definitely a good look, it pulls together any look and you will look effortlessly chic

a twist on traditional legging, they have leggings with zippers, which paired with a cute pair of patent leather flats, you will be tre' cute @ work

flat mid calf boots are great, you can wear these with skinny jeans or with tights and a dress, or if you are feeling a little edgy & if it is work appropriate do sheer pantyhose and ripped shorts

lace panty hose are soo hott!!! bit if it is a cool day, i would put a solid legging under neath them, in which case maybe buy 1 size bigger than your normal

gold hoops are classic, pull that hair off your face and add a lined black eye and a red out now!
the boyfriend jeans paired with a tank top and a cutesy cardigan and your patent leather flats, you will look soo cute
i love the sweater dress, you can pair this with a loose vest or with the flats or the boots, mad options here :)
knee length flat boots great with a work appropriate length dress

and here are the highly anticipated flats i keep yapping about :) and while were at it, these hammer'esque jeans are the business as well.

Just be yourself and do a great job, good luck and let me know how it goes, did i do her justice guys?

she by sheree

ok, i'll admit it, i am not the biggest fan of ms.sheree, but surprisingly i liked most of her looks. i wish she had gone with better a fabric choice for her looks because the pulling and puckering was not a good look for fashion week. she had a great concept, but i would definitely perfect my craft before presenting it in public again is all i am saying. CONSTRUCTION! CONSTRUCTION! CONSTRUCTION! great effort though, looking forward to the future of the brand. here are the looks i liked.
