Monday’s Muse—Ajak Deng

Hola peeps!  I hope that you had a fab weekend because I sure did!  There are no words for the beauty that exudes from model Ajak Deng which is why she is today’s muse.  Her smooth deep chocolate skin, full lips and slender physique are all flawless.  I just adore a model that can go from fierce on the runway, stunt in the mags and laid-back chic in day-to-day life.  Take a peek at the pics to see just how Ajak pulls it off.  Enjoy!

Ajak is simply stunning as she walks the Mara Hoffman show.

Nanette Lepore Resort 2014

Hola!  Last month I was invited to Nanette Lepore’s showroom for a press preview of their Resort 2014 collection and I couldn’t have been happier.  I adore the brand and what she represents in the fashion industry.  Lepore is one of the few designers that believes in and supports the diminishing Fashion Ave industry here in NYC.  Whereas a lot of designers take their production overseas she does her best to make sure that the majority of clothing is USA made *respect*.  This collection was vibrant, fun and had a bit of a global influence.  There were so many pieces that I wanted that to take home.  Take a look for yourself!

I love that these separates can be mixed and matched—taking you from the beach to poolside bar. I need this for my upcoming trip to Costa Rica!
Rhinestones and snakeskin print glams up a slip on flat. This is perfect for the beach, pool or shopping around while on vacation!
Who doesn’t like a floral print? Well from spring, to summer and now into resort you can rock them proudly. Peep the detail of the exposed zipper on this dress—sweet but sassy!
Jazz up your look with this gorgeous white lace blazer. I adore this because it is easy to wear with so many of the pieces in this collection.
The use of blues mixed with global prints/patterns/textures are perfect!
Fab totes and handbags in cobalt blue mixed with patterns!
White done right! I want this leather motorcycle jacket!
The texture of this lightweight jacket is just perfect. The coral color looks great on every skin tone too!
Head out in a cute A-line dress. It is fun and flirty without showing too much!
The iridescent trend is carried over into resort and it is showing up in accessories. This heel and handbag combo is one of the best hands down!
Uplift a simple dress with a fierce pump or belt. Love!
