I'm going to have field days with this! I could just write of ton per day of the What to Wear daily slips. In retrospect the notepad comes in handy when someone stops to ask me what to wear. I didn't have it with me when my co-worker asked me what to wear for an all black attire event. I explained in detail from hair to make-up to accessories. It's now in my purse! I bought it from Anthropologie. You can purchase from knockknockstuff.com
Every month I will make sure to post a book based on fashion, beauty, or art. Whatever stikes the match! I recently purchased a book named 'Fashion Designers' Stretchbook' by Hywel Davies. Here's a bit of infomation about the book. 'Fashion Designers' Stretchbook' explores many major names working in the fashion industry today. Photographs, stretches, mood boards, line-ups, toiles, fabric swatches and more all contribute to the creation of ideas for fashion designs, and they bought together for the first time to show how the final work is conceived and developed. Hywel Davies is a freelance fashion writer based in London.
Young designer Jonas Bevacqua founder of LRG dies today. I have a boyfriend, 2 brothers and guy friends who are 'advocate' wearers of LRG apparel for many years. Sad to hear about fashion pioneers that have made a positive impact lose their life early.
The Louisiana Art & Science Muesum in Baton Rouge is holding a new exhibit featuring 43 period film costumes from some memorable movies. This will display now through July 31st. What you'll find; Keira Knightly's costume as Georgiana in 'The Duchess', and the ever so sexy and talented Johnny Depp's costume from 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. I'll be sure to add images from my future visit. Details, details, details is a must for inspiration!
I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with the designer/artist for To Be Contiuned Vintage Jewelry Undone. Nancy Rhett is one of a kind just like her designs. She takes recycled silk sari from Nepal and even vintage silk Hermes scarves then adds vintage brooches, pendants, and trinkets to make come to life again. These can be worn as necklaces, hair ties, or wrap around as delicate bracelets. Check out her website... Tobecontinuedneworleans.com
In one of my recent shopping spree at Anthropologie I encountered some of the cutest must have to add instant glam! A pair of large gold teardrop hoops with critine color stones wired throughout the lower half. A nice addition to an everyday causal look. I've worn them already with a black tank from WilliamRast Target collection and army green linen cargos from Victoria's Secret and Elizabeth and James rust leather woven clogs. Black shades to finish the look. I really enjoy shopping for one of kind style jewelry from Anthropologie. I also have a favorite pair I will purchase in the near future. (2nd photo)
