Escada Spring 2015

When I first laid eyes on this Escada Spring 2015 collection, the first thing that came to mind was that I'll be packing away my colorful wardrobe in transition for fall pretty soon. Summer, I will sincerely miss you. I have always had a liking to the Escada brand for its feminine and sensual sense of glamour that its been known for throughout the decades. I particularly love this collection for its bold approach with a great balance between youthfulness and sophistication. It's modern, fresh and dynamic. I love to see iconic brands like Escada evolve with the times. This collection is a great representation of that.

Walking in Leopard

While leopard print may not be for most fashion conservative types, stepping out in a fabulous pair of leopard print heels will surely make certain to turn a couple heads. Animal print is a great way to add an element of boldness to your style. Not quite sure how to work the bold print? Keep it simple. Opt for all black, a white tee and a pair of denim. Go red for a splash of color. Stay tuned for my upcoming inspired looks on how to wear leopard print. Until then, check out these fabulous leopard print shoe options.

Leopard is such a staple for the fall. Do you own any leopard or animal print shoes? How do you style them?

Haute: The Accessories Show

Haute: \ˈōt\ French for fashionably elegant or high-class. The Fashion Movement hosted its fourth annual installment of the increasingly popular fall accessories show, HAUTE in Tampa, Florida this weekend. The show provides a platform for selected fashion accessory designers to showcase their uniquely creative designs to fashion enthusiast across the Tampa Bay area. Guest had the pleasure of shopping the designer's pop-up shops while enjoying an assortment of complimentary beverages and Hors d'oeuvres. Seven designers wowed the crowed with uniquely bold pieces that were constructed from a variety of elements. Sure we've seen many shows dedicated to fashion apparel, but nothing exclusively for accessories. This is such a great concept and platform for accessory designers. Check out some of the images captured at this year's event.

I have a love hate relationship with harem pants. I love the fact that they are so comfy but I hate that fact that the fit can sometimes be annoying. If I were to stand or pose a certain way in these pants, the gathering in the front would create a camel toe effect. I'm totally not here for the camel toe. They are made of jersey knit which certainly doesn't help. LOL. So the verdict is still out on these. Until next time friends. . . . Peace, Love & Blessings.
