Trendenzas and Me - A Product review*

I had a chance to check out a great online accessories company called Trendenzas. Trendenzas is a online shopping site where you can get great trendy accessories for an even better price. The prices for accessories on Trendenzas.com are surprising low.  The only catch is that these fabulous accessories are only that price for 1 day! Think of a 24 hour jewelry deal, online. Pretty cool idea especially when your are on a budget like myself. 


Here are the earrings I received from Trendenzas.com. Cute right! I received so many complements! 




The best thing about these earring is that you can dress them down. I worn them at the JAGGED EDGE / MELANIE FIONA / CHRIS WALKER / FORCE MDS concert at Central Park, New York City for the Summer Concert Series. 


They look great dressed up too. I also wore them for the Lifestyle + Charity Magazine Party at Lauren Gabrielson boutique for City Harvest. They were great with my LBD (little black dress).

Hello everyone! I am so excited to show you my first event that I was a media sponsor. I've been promoting  The LC Mag Party Featuring Lauren Gabrielson for the past 2 months. With great fashion and a great cause I was not surprised to see a great turnout.  SO here is a look at LC Mag Party for City Harvest Featuring Lauren Gabrielson & Me!





Cute right?!



The ambience of the Lauren Gabrielson boutique was classic! 



Popchips was one of the sponsors for the event! 


You can't go wrong with a glass of Wine.


This leather coat is a must have. Everyone at the event was talking about it especially the belt. So Adorable! 


Great tunic dress especially for the next summer.

My Look


A new hairstyle style. Not sure if I am going to keep this look. 




I love this dress especially for the pockets. A great find at Macy's plus size section! You can not go wrong with a LBD.  I am a huge fan of kitten heel. I love these earrings, thanks to Trendenzas. They are Absolutely fabulous. I will talk about Trendenzas.com in a post later this week. Mostly  doe to the fact that kitten heels are the only pair of heels I can walk in besides wedges. 


The Swag Bag

Here is a look at my swag bag for the evening. Everyone who came out received a great gift bag. I am also happy to say that I am one of many winners of the door prize, a large bottle of Natori perfume! Cool right. Just goes to show that it pays to come to an event on time. 

I had a fab time at The LC Mag Party Featuring Lauren Gabrielson!

NYFW S/S 2012 with Dashing Diva, Daisy Fuentes, Kohl's, and more !

Fashion week was full of style,beauty, and some serious celebrity power. Today I am going to talk about my backstage look at the Daisy Fuentes' fashion show.  Yes Daisy Fuentes has a great fashion collection at Kohl's. There were some serious pros working to get Daisy's look and vision across. With nails by Patti Yankee of Dashing Diva, hair by Whitney Blischke of Toni & Guy, and makeup by VIktorija Bowers at Kat Ryan Inc for BeautiControl.


Dashing Diva Nails! 

Nude is a huge color for the season so I am happy that Dashing Diva pull out "Fashion Week" for the runway. Fashion Week is a sheer flesh-toned peachy pink nail ploish that looks great on every skin tone. So make sure you have a great peachy nail polish in your beauty tool kit.





NYFW Fact : Nude was a very popular color at NYFW.






The Makeup



Here is VIktorija Bowers, lead makeup artist for the show. I had a chance to talk to her about the overall look for the show. Think a socialite in St Tropez coming from a day beach and transitioning into a evening of dancing, cocktails, and laughs! For the perfect St. Tropez Look, you need a beautiful smokey, a great bronzer, and a nude lip.  




 VIktorija applied a bronzer to give a golden sun kissed look to the models. Bronzer is a great way to give a glow effect to any fashionista. A shimmer lotion was also used to give off the glowing/sun-kissed look.

Meeting Nicola Formichetti and Bloggers Night Out in NYC

Many people rested after the FNO craziness, well not me. I was on a style high and in my bones I felt that something great will happen.  All I could think about was hitting up Tribeca in the daytime and chilling at Bloggers Night Out event in Flatiron at night. Check out my New York Adventure featuring Nicola Formeichetti and #BNO. 

Nicola Formichetti PopUp Store in Tribeca! 



 I think I need some Robitussin because these shoes are sick! 



Love this necklace. What a statement piece?!




This leather jacket is so good! 


This is so cool plus the grade of leather was spectacular. The button on the vest really caught my eye. It may not be the most interesting piece in the store but it is one of my favorite items there. Now to get some $ to buy! 







Bold! 











Love this! Now if only I can get my prescription in these shades. 


Love this jacket, now to find one in my size.








Meeting Mr. Nicola Formichetti






 Nicola Formichetti is one of the nicest designers I have ever meet. He signed autographs, talked to fans, engaged in conversation with everyone, and just cordial to all his customers/fans/admirers! Nicola is such a class act. Check out more of Nicola pop up store at http://www.nicolaspopupshop.com/ or if you are in NYC go to the shop at 50 Walker Street in Tribeca.
