Yesterday I went to an amazing stylist panel event during the Vulture Festival held at Milk Studios and hosted by VultureNew York Magazine. There was an entire agenda of talks and events going on over the duration of the two day festival that took place over the weekend. I usually search Eventbrite for different to find events to attend. This was my first time hearing about the Vulture Festival, who’s tagline is “A Pop-Culture Extrvaganza!” I knew I had to check it out!

SUM Company makes SUM (sun)glasses…


Wayfarers have been an iconic sunglass style for decades, with the most popular reference coming from the memorable pantless dance seen Tom Cruise did while wearing some in Risky Business.

To this day I remember the blue wayfarers that I lost while at a park picnic.. I accidently threw them away when i was finished eating. They were my favorite sunglasses of all time, I wished I could of found a new pair of the exact or similar style, but usually when you are shopping for something that is specific you can never find it. Even when I was younger I liked to find accessories that expressed my love for the color blue, while being unique and creative. This is where customized shopping trends come in handy. SUM Company can make SUM unique and creative sunglasses for you! Continue Reading

Could John Galliano be the perfect fit for Oscar de la Renta?

It was inevitable really. From the moment the willowy, doll-like models went swooping down Oscar de la Renta’s runway in New York in February, the rumour mill went into overdrive.

De la Renta’s fall/ winter 2013 collection had all the hallmarks of a typical Oscar collection- lavish evening gowns, stunning prints, the most luxurious fabrics cut draped and pin-tucked to perfection- but, to the fashionably trained eye there was something else present among the layers of bustling silk and taffeta. A mere hint of playfulness, the slightest suggestion of irony. There was definitely no mistaking John Galliano’s influence in this collection.

The Return of Saint Laurent

My fellow (Yves) Saint Laurent lovers, the brand has finally released their Fall 2013 Ad Campaign. The ad features Southern California twins, Wyatt and Fletcher Shears. They are behind the skater punk band “The Garden.” But most importantly, they are exclusive Saint Laurent models. They debuted on the Saint Laurent runway and now are the stars of the ad campaign.

The Allure of The Painted Red Nail

A good manicure is the pinnacle of every well pulled together look. In recent years we have seen almost as many new nail beauty trends emerge as we have fashion trends. Every spring and autumn there are new shades and tones, new techniques of patterning. From modern French manicures to magnetic nail varnishes that can be manipulated to create crazy prints, like leopard (the animal print that knows no bounds). But despite all this endless swapping and changing of nail designs, one nail polish color that has always been irresistible is red.

Dark cherry, warm burgundy, fire-engine scarlet, moody crimson, classic and understated or slap-in-the-face bright, each and every season we see some shade of red nail varnish. Whether the fashion set is wearing emerald green, sky blue or slate grey on their nails, the classic red nail lacquer will always be spotted on the chic lady, hovering nonchalantly in the background. And, no matter how many times we are tempted by the highly technical modern nail arts, we continue to reserve a place in our hearts, and our beauty bags, for our faithful old friend, goes-with-anything, suitable-for-any-occasion, red nail polish.

Beyoncé has done it again. Traveling the world with her amazing crew of talent and skilled professionals; almost like a huge circus, with every bling, bells and whistles. Her mission is simple, to inspire and empower the nation. Her 2013 world tour has received rave reviews of 5 stars from europe to america. Everyone is speaking how on point is the performance. And what’s so amazing is she has no new album out yet, she is still riding the surf of her last album, 4.

What interests me are the selection of fashion pieces she is wearing in her performances. High fashion- couture pieces that fit her body shape beautiful and flawlessly. But, knowing her, they mean more than just fashion, her selection speaks power, embracing femininity, being an  independent woman is cool, loving your life, and going after your dreams above and beyond.  Continue Reading

Whether you watch show or not, you probably already know that “Olivia Pope” played by Kerry Washington, is becoming somewhat of a fashion (character) icon through this popular TV show. Although the shows and characters are drastically different, you could compare the definite buzz and attention around Olivia’s exquisitely chic looks to the interest in Carrie’s eclectic designer wardrobe in the days of Sex In The City’s popularity. Olivia’s looks may not have the same extent of “trendy” interest, but there is a similar fashionable interest in each character’s wardrobe. It makes the show even more interesting to watch because Kerry is great in the character and is well matched with the on point wardrobe.
