M.I.A. Versus Versace

One of the main reasons why I love fashion is because of the creativity. I was patiently waiting for the M.I.A. Versus Versace collection because I truly admire M.I.A. as an artist and was so curious as to what she would create. Versace has been quite popular in the music industry these days and I feel this collab. is so perfect. All artists have their own style, or a stylist, and M.I.A has always been an artist to watch. Her colorful, vibrant spirit always shines thru her music videos and red carpet appearances. 

I really like the collaboration with M.I.A. and Versus Verasace. It’s def. outrageous and in your face type of style, but it fits with the artist and the vintage look of Versace. The whole collection plays tribute to “bootlegging” culture and features some of the loudest prints I have ever seen! It’s fun and playful and very new-age. I can see a few of the pieces on celebrities as well as street-style fashionista’s. Some of the T-shirt dresses are really fun, I’d def. rock one to a concert. I also really like the styling of the lookbook, it’s simple and clean and lets the prints speak for themselves. (Which they do!)

Parish Nation Fall 2013 Preview

Last week I had the pleasure to attend the Parish Nation Fall 2013 Preview Party located in the Parish Showroom. This was a really fun event, mostly for bloggers, stylists, and PR to give us a sneak peak of the line and meet the designers behind it. Everyone was super friendly and I got a little background behind the line and their inspiration. Parish Nation really focuses on the small details, which I really admire. It’s the little details that show how committed a brand really is to their product. They are putting something out there not only with great quality but also with a lot of thought behind it. I was really impressed by this line. The textile and prints were amazing and the denim had some really cool washes and details as well. 

You can check out more of the brand by going to their website below:

Also, see below for some quick pics. I took while at the event. 🙂 I kept my outfit pretty simple b/c if you are in NYC you know how HOT it is… Thrifted vintage dress w/ a high waisted belt, my Bob Marley hand woven earrings, Jessica Simpson sandals, and a high bun was all I needed for this event! 😉
