This is Major: IMG Says Many Bloggers Will Not Be Invited to Fashion Week Next Season


Hola peeps! Things that make you go hummmm. I get where they are coming from but aren’t bloggers a part of the next generation of getting the fashion news out there quickly? What your are thoughts? Sound off!

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.

“Fashion Week was becoming a zoo,” Bennett told them. “What used to be a platform for established designers to debut their collections to select media and buyers has developed into a cluttered, often cost-prohibitive and exhausting period for our industry to effectively do business,” according to a press release.

Another spokesperson for IMG told the Journal that individuals with a “tenuous connection to the fashion industry” will not be…

Friday Sass—Love The Way You Look


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!

Fashion Insider on the Move—Straight To The League


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!

Friday Sass—Rad for Plaid


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!
