Vintage Leopard

DSC_0576

| Dress: RC Moore Unique Milinery |

 I got this amazing leopard dress at a vintage store in Allentown, PA last week to help my friend celebrate her themed (70′s 80′s) 51st birthday.

As much as I love clothes, I hate shopping. I usually go into the store, pick up what I want and bolt. Badda Bing. Badda Bang. I’m outta there. Can’t say that was the case for this purchase. It was spend a little more time at the quaint RC Moore Unique Milinery, where vintage at it’s finest is to be found. From one of a kinds hats, fascinators, capes, dresses, sunglasses, shoes, coats, you name it you’ll find it in this treasure chest vintage closet. You can find their Etsy store, here.

I’d say I spent about an hour looking around and drooling over some of the precious pieces. And in the end walked out with this fabulous leopard number.

Anyways, here’s was the end result. This dress and I were destained to meet. I wore red lips, red bag and red nail color to give it a pop.

Some of my favorite pieces from the Tory Burch ready-to-wear spring 2015 collection. Her muse was Françoise Guilot.

 I fell in love with these images of model, Chanel Iman for the Violet Grey. Her make up and portrayal of was so brilliantly done. Just look at those lips. Perfect. She manages to capture that old hollywood glamor that I so love.

JCrew’s RTW SS15 Collection

Can I just have all the pieces from the JCrew Srping 2015 collection? As usual JCrew did not disappointed the daring. It’s all about busy(ness); bold prints and vivid colors. The collection is out the box as usual and they obviously used all the crayons too. And that’s a good thing for those who like the mish mash of colors and prints. I love it. What’s not to love? Slide through and and check them out.

Bella NYC Mag Set Sail

Bella Magazine NYC set sail for the launch of  their September issue with Ana Ivanovic on the cover.

The funny thing is that I’m not a fan of water since I suffer from motion sickness, which started 10 years ago after I had my second child. I get sick in the car, on the bus, and in any shaky situation. So, I knew this was going to be interesting.

For added interest to my day, the dress i’m wearing was not my planned attire. I had two shows to attend earlier at Lincoln center, so I did those, then I realized I forgot my change of clothing home, in Pennsylvania, (I moved to PA, which is about 1 1/2 hrs outside of NYC last summer) and planned on changing at my mother’s house in Brooklyn. And oh, I also realized I forgot all my makeup. CRAP!!!

So what next? I go to H&M. I hate shopping ( I like buying) so I just pick up the first ting that looked ok. And, I have a bad habit of not trying on clothing. I’m usually 95% on point with my size picking. Plus I was in a hurry

I get to my mom’s house, and decided to use her make up. God knows how long she’s had them in the bag. But I go for it, and was quite surprised however, to find a NARS (my fave brand) powder in the bad. I get to dabbling and making up my face. Yet another problem persists; the lighting is the worst i’ve ever used. But I do my best.

I finally leave the house and steps into the beautiful sunlit day.  I ask my husband who’s waiting in the car, “is my face ashen or whitish?” He responds, “No, it’s fine.” The mirror in the car says something slightly different, but at this point there’s nothing I can do.

In the end, i’m wearing a darn dress I absolutely don’t like. I think it’s too short and it feels a little to close to my bum, my face is absolutely ashy looking, then on the walk to the boat, I twist my right ankle, which has been giving me hell since my accident, and to top it all off I don’t want to get on the boat.

I did get on the boat eventually, but sat my butt on a bench and did not move until it returned to dock. Through it all, I met some very wonderful people, all full of passion and promise. So it was definitely worth the queasiness and uneasiness.

P.S. Don’t wear your mother’s make up, and get thee to the fitting room before you leave the store with clothing.

You can see here how ashy my face is looking. But, I held that head up as if nothing was amiss.

NYFW 2015 Church Flow

DSC_0276

When I think about the goodness of the Lord, I just have to praise and thank him. Today I took a rest from the shows at New York Fashion Week and the Essence Street Style Block Party. But still dressed up for my God (not that he cares how I dress).

I’m using my newly found BCBG bag again. I simply love it, and can’t seem to put it down. I’ve even been to the supermarket. It’s easy to carry and keeps me light. And, i’ll be wearing it to every single show and event for the entire NYFW.

The skirt I featured in a prior blog. Check it out here.
