NYFW-Rebecca Minkoff SS 2014

Hola peeps!  No matter how much I miss being on vacation, I truly missed blogging and you guys!  Well, enough on that later because New York Fashion Week is here!  First up is one of my fave designers—Rebecca Minkoff.  Let’s dive right in shall we!





The show was very vibrant and festive just like the clothing that came down the runway.  There was a huge nod to latin culture with embroidery, lace and eyelet details.  The models wore their hair in milkmaid braids which reminded me of Freida Kahlo.






The juxtaposition of soft fabrics and sporty silhouettes were perfect.  This yellow lace skirt with the mesh baseball/bomber style jacket is right up my alley!  The accessories were fab as well—especially the tasselled pumps and cutout lace-up sandals.



Watch the complete show below and enjoy the funky sounds of singer Janelle Monàe.  Enjoy!



WIDW—Janelle Monae for Essence May 2013

Hola peeps! I took a little break for Easter and it feels like forever since I did a complete post but now I am back!  Today I’m diggin how beautiful singer Janelle Monae is on the cover of Essence magazine.  Her skin is simply flawless, the makeup is just right and of course her signature pompadour is on point.  I think this look is classic and it fits her style that she wears so well.  What do you think?  Are you digging it or would you like to see her change it up a bit?  Do tell.



Monday’s Muse—Updo Queens

Hola peeps!  I hope that you had a great weekend and an easy Monday!  There are two featured muses today—Shingai Shoniwa and Janelle Monae.  These ladies rock some of the meanest updos that I have seen, hence the title of the post.  From time to time you may catch them letting their hair down in a funky twist-out or a fab fro; however you know that signature ‘do isn’t far behind.

Do you agree that they are the Updo Queens or who do you think deserves the title?  Check the pics and weigh in!
