Candy Summer Love

This season Rock Candy gems are all over! It took place of the statement necklace and has its own unique flair to it. The vibrant colors and bold accessories are a perfect staple for this summer. Neons and bright colors are the best in the summer- especially with a nice, bronzed tan 😉 It balances out perfectly. Layering different colors is a new twist. Think outside the box and be bold, be you, and shine!

Take a look for some inspiration:

One thing I love in the summer time is bright and fun nail polish! The crazier the colors the better, I usually go with my mood when I pick out a color- but we all know when summer comes we are just always in bright mood!

Remember when you were a kid and colored with Crayola crayons? Well, they stepped it up a bit and came out with the cutest creation- Crayola colors for your nails. SO adorable. The best part–they actually come in a jumbo sized crayola box. So you can be a kid again 🙂 Happy Summer!

Rachel Roy introduces Brasil

Last week I had the pleasure of attending Rachel Roy’s event in Macys, Herald Square. It was an absolutely fab event with the designer herself introducing her new line and live brazilian music by talented artist, Seu Jorge. (if you don’t know , NOW you know.. check him out) The acoustic set provided a perfect vibe for the breezy, colorful, and fun collection. Brazil inspired, she talked about her motivation behind the line and the beautiful collaboration between the music and fashion. My two favorite things. I love how inspiration can be drawn from anything and anyone, it’s so beautiful. Rachel Roy unveiled a line full of bright prints, maxi dresses, color and bold florals, and much more. Her line is officially out in all Macy’s locations- so shop ladies and get BRASIL inspired 🙂

Here are some pics from the event and an inspiration board for the line:

PS. Play Seu Jorge for the full BRAZIL effect 🙂 Enjoy with a glass of sangria and get inspired..

The Little Black Jacket

Inside Chanel's "The Little Black Jacket" Exhibition

“Every designer dreams of inventing the Chanel jacket,  It’s up there with jeans or the T-shirt; it is gender neutral—that is to say, it can be womenswear or menswear,” he says.”- Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld told Gotham Magazine, speaking of the fashion necessity for many generations.

The Little Black Jacket exhibition featured over 100 black and white photographs of celebs wearing the infamous Chanel jacket- they each had a personalized one. Some of them included SJP (personal FAVE), Kanye West, Tilda Swinton, and many more. Karl Lagerfeld and former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld are the dynamic duo behind this amazing project. Too much fashion and creativity between the both of them- it’s so motivating! The photos from the exhibition will be made into a book which should be coming out this summer- so be on the look out for that!

Designer Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel first conceived of her infamous black jacket in 1916 as she set to re-imagine the way women should dress.

“Fashion has become a joke…The designers have forgotten that there are women inside the dresses. Most women dress for men and want to be admired. But they must also be able to move, to get into a car without bursting their seams! Clothes must have a natural shape.”- Coco Chanel

The infamous black jacket originated in 1916 by the ever so talented Coco Chanel. In 1936 Chanel started using tweed in her jackets to add more status and glamour. Nowadays owning one can be a bit pricey (around several thousand dollars each) so let’s just admire the beautiful exhibition for now..

To a new month

At the start of every month I like to reflect on the past month and set new goals for the new month that is ahead. June is a new month of infinite possibilities and I am very excited to welcome it with open arms and much anticipation. Sunshine and warm weather always brings me joy, renewal, and insight. I find myself spending more time outside and enjoying the simple things that life has to offer us. There are so many events to look forward too and time to spend with loved ones. Ready.Set.Grow Happy June to all my naturalista fashionista’s ❤

MET Gala Fashion Love

The MET GALA is always something to look forward to in my book; mostly for the fashion! I love meshing art, fashion, and music. Celebs always push the envelope and wear the most outrageous yet amazing styles ever! Sarah Jessica Parker is always my favorite! She is such a style icon and wows me every year with something new, fresh ,and extravagant. Another favorite of mine was Rihanna wearing Tom Ford– need that dress in my life ASAP! So fly and the fit was perfect.

Here are some more of my faves from the glamorous night:
