A Metallic Kind of Night

Whenever I get an invite to a blogger related event, I’m always in a scramble about what to wear. The evening event was on a rooftop and I wanted to be L.A. comfy casual chic. Is that really a thing? LOL! Whatever…I wanted to look cute! I decided to go with a top that Evans sent me.  Read more

Fashion + Technology = Harmony

Fashion and technology? In today’s world, these two work together in harmony. I know fashion bloggers wouldn’t exist without them. And if you’re a fan of Project Runway, then you know these two are lifesavers in crucial design moments. Those talented designers rely on their HP tablets and computers. Read more

Take a deep breath…New York Fashion Week is finally over. I didn’t have the time, money, or energy to make it out there. But, I did keep up via one of my fave fashion sites Style.com. And although plus sizes were not represented on the runway, that doesn’t mean we can’t take inspiration from them…right? Read more

One Dress…3 Looks

I am in love with this ASOS Curve maxi dress. Isn’t the color amazing? Perfect for spring. If I owned this dress, this is probably how’d I’d style it. Three different looks, yet all very casual. That’s me…a casual kind of girl. From a chunky bracelet, clutch, and sandals-these are all pieces that can be found very easily. Most you probably already have them.

How would you style this maxi?

Bauble Alert: Cosmic Thread

Cosmic Thread is bringing handmade geometric shaped jewelry to another level. I discovered them during MAGIC’s Pool Tradeshow and instantly was in awe. You might have seen these photos in a previous post. The designers are two sisters, Taryn and Megan, from Colorado. I really admire unique and creative jewelry like this. 

The collection experiments with the fusion of synthetic and reclaimed organic materialsinto highly conceptual designs. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted with a forward thinking focus on the future,manifesting the inspiration of space into wearable geometry.

Make sure you check out the Cosmic Thread collection. 

Handbag Delight: Stripes

Looking at handbags online is not easy. I thought it would be, because it’s not like looking at them in a store. I was wrong…I want them all. And as you can see, I’m kind of in a stripe mood right now.  I’ve seen people wearing them like crazy. But, I’d like to be a twist on it and go with a striped clutch or handbag.

What do you think? Are stripes for you?

MAGIC, Project, and Pool Tradeshow Photos

Here are the rest of my photos from MAGIC, Project, and the Pool Tradeshow. Like I had said before, these spaces were so huge! There was such an array of clothes and accessories. Once again, we didn’t get to see everything.

MAGIC and Project were home to fashion brands, while the Pool Tradeshow was more of the indie designers and brands. It was amazing. Ivory (www.ivoryjinelle.blogspot.com) and I had a chance to chat with the ladies over at Nation LTD. They’re really passionate about their plus pieces that you can find at Nordstrom. That’s very inspiring! I also fell in love with the fringe handbags from Ember Skye at Project. I loved the colors!

And I died over the jewelry from Cosmic Thread  and Designs by Alicia P. at the Pool Tradeshow. The jewelry was very unique! Loved it.  I had such an amazing time and I can’t wait for my next WWDMAGIC visit!

MAGIC’s FN Platform: Part 2

Here are more photos from MAGIC’s FN Platform. I don’t think you ladies understand how many shoes there were! We didn’t even cover the entire thing. I know my feet would’ve of been dead at the end of that day!

I was most impressed with Betsey Johnson and Charles Whittington. Of course I always love a fun shoe like Betsey Johnson, but I was loving the double stiletto by Charles Whittington. Isn’t it cool? It’s trademarked people…so don’t try to steal it! Just love it!

OOTD: MAGIC’12 Outfits

Guess who overpacked for MAGIC? I told my hubby it was a good thing I wasn’t flying because I would have been paying for that extra weight. LOL! Have you ever done that? Overpacked, but hated almost everything in your suitcase? That was definitely me.

So, what does any girl do when they don’t like their clothes? Go shopping of course. I stopped by the outlets on my way to Las Vegas and bought this beautiful asymmetrical BCBG Max Azria sweater. Thanks for convincing me Ivory! LOL! She’s always right. I wore it on the first day of MAGIC. Later that night, we decided to dress up a bit to go out. I wore this purple off the shoulder sweater dress, with these BCBG Max Azria ankle boots I snatched up on Ideeli.com. Love that web site! I just might have a thing for BCBG!

On Valentine’s Day, I wanted to commemorate the holiday with this heart sweater from Forever 21. I know…I’m corny like that. I was missing my hubby. I wore it with a pair of black Mossimo skinny jeans from Target. They really stretched out by the end of the night. Be careful if you buy them. I’d go a size smaller.

Now it’s time for the fun part of traveling…unpacking. Ugh!
