Here's some news that may not surprise but probably does delight actual fashion editors and buyers: Catherine Bennett, senior vice president and managing director for IMG (the company that heads up Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week), recently gave an interview to the Wall Street Journal in which she revealed that as of next season, many of the surplus fashion bloggers currently being invited to shows will not be invited to return.
Hola! Happy Friday! What are your weekend plans—going out with your beau, shopping with the girls or just relaxing?! Whatever it is please take note of today’s sass—Love The Way You Look. Ladies, we are often so harsh on ourselves when it comes to appearance. We want our hair to be right, outfit on point and face to be beat…while that is all good (it is important to look presentable) we must remember to love ourselves. There is no need to fret because nobody is perfect. I think that it is best to accept yourself as is and go with the flow. It will be so much easier that way. So throw on your #NoFilter sweatshirt with pride and show the world what you’re really working it. Have a fab and fun weekend!
Hola! We all love the leather goods and accessories by Coach, however after months of speculation they have finally launched clothing. It is about time don’t you agree? Of course the collection contains some leather pieces—pants and dresses but it also includes plaid wool mohair skirts, sweaters and tunics as well. I can definitely see these sophisticated pieces paired with their handbags and shoes easily. They are off to a good start however I would like to see more affordable pieces. Take a peek and let me know what you think.
I know that we are talking about clothing but I must share this one Coach hangbag with you! This gorgeous Borough Bag that fab fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker has been toting around for over a week already. It is made of durable soft leather, is the right size and in an amazing olive color—perfect for fall! I want but I can’t see dropping $778 for it :-( However take a peek at this beauty!
Go here to see the full line. Thoughts on the collection and/or bag? Do tell. Happy shopping!
Hola peeps! A few weeks ago I attended Nolcha Fashion Lounge which was held a few days after Nolcha Fashion Week. There I met the owner and team of the clothing company- Straight to The League. I think their About Us section explains what they do best: “Straight To The League is a clothing company… that’s NOT about obligations, titles or regrets! We are movement that promotes greatness on all levels and the mentality and mindset that says; I can accomplish anything!”
What caught my attention where the super soft organic cotton tees. The team informed me that a portion of the proceeds from that collection is donated to a charity. Doesn’t that just warm your heart? Well it definitely warms mine! Take a peek at some of them below.
Also ladies no need to fret because we can shop the brand too; they have League Lady especially for us. I am really happy to see a line that is socially aware with cool designs and great price points. Straight to the League is definitely a Fashion Insider on the Move—>Congrats!
Hola! Happy Friday to you all! Fall is surely settling in although the last few days it has felt more like summer here in NYC. One huge trend for the season is plaid hence today’s sass—Rad for Plaid. The powerful pattern is very nostalgic of the 90s grunge era; instantly I think of Courtney Love, Kurt Cobain, Alicia Silverstone and Stacy Dash in Clueless. However now is the time to freshen it up with a crisp white button-down, wool-lined moto jacket, chunky booties and uplifted with a 3.1 Philip Lim handbag. This look is perfect for a stroll in the park with your beau, apple picking with kiddies or out sipping on hot cider (spiked of course) with your girls. Enjoy your weekend!
Hola! Happy Friday! I’m keeping it short and sweet for today’s sass—Back to Black. I mentioned last week that I love to be a rebel and rock black in the summer well here is proof again. This outfit is super sexy and vampy all rolled into one; perfect for a night out. Go out and have fun this weekend!
Hola peeps! The last few years H&M has been giving us plenty of designer collaborations to salivate over and this fall will be no different. Isabel Marant is set to launch must-have pieces/accessories for women, teen girls and for the first time a men’s collection! The pieces will be available on November 14, 2013 in 250 stores worldwide and online. Take a peek at the video for more deets. I can’t wait! Can you…thoughts?
Hola! Today’s sass comes to you with a fashion forward twist and Zoe Saldana. This off-the shoulder Kenzo dress would look great on her petite frame and paired with Christian Louboutin Pigalle 120 patent-leather pumps…instant perfection! Re-create this look for a night out on the town with your boo. Have a great weekend peeps!
Hola! Today I am sharing one of my favorite lines for S/S 2013—Stella Jean. She is a young and super talented Italo-Haitian designer that started out as a model but eventually followed her heart to design clothes. A great deal of her inspiration comes from her multiculturalism and it shows! Here is an excerpt form the site:
“A brave and sophisticated collection which conceptually and instinctively overcomes all time and space boundaries, going towards new and exciting destinations. The theme of the journey, together with sociocultural suggestions, shapes a collection that has bon-ton humour as conditio sine qua non. A serious but still light-hearted exercise that matches those two “primary colours” with all the nuances in the world, with limitless grace and futuristic ladylike suggestions. The outfits on the catwalk prove the extraordinary richness of the multicultural roots of their designer, through a singular and intensely suggestive style.”
Take a peek at the bright colors, prints and patterns…j’dore!

Hola! Happy Friday! I know that Pantone named Emerald the color for spring but as of late I am feeling Mellow Yellow. The weather has been gloomy, cold and windy all week; today’s sass is a reminder that bright, sunny and warm days are coming. Enjoy your weekend peeps!
