Bright Red on the Runway for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018

Oscar de la Renta

The New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 Collections have featured many bright colors, especially bright red. It seems that every designer this season has some kind of red in their collection. I guess it’s time to refresh that black and grey that we always have in our fall/winter wardrobes and spice it up with some color. Check out more of these bright red designs below.

African Royalty on the Purple Carpet at The Black Panther Premiere

So I dreamed that I was in the land of Wakanda last night after getting excited about the new Black Panther movie. I had a home with corn fields and was the happiest woman ever! Anyway, last night Black Panther premiered in Hollywood and the fashion on the purple carpet was absolutely amazing. As a black woman I’m incredibly excited about this movie and can’t wait to see it.

I rarely talk about celebrities but I just had to mention some of the fashion on the purple carpet last night. Musicians Chloe and Halle were in attendance wearing Elisabetta Franchi while actress Lupita Nyong’o looked like African royalty wearing an Atelier Versace dress. Janeshia Adams-Ginyard stunned in a head to toe African inspired crop top, skirt and hat by Tamara Cobus while Angela Bassett wore a canary yellow Naeem Khan jumpsuit.

DezignNation Struts Miami Drive-In Fashion Show

I recently attended the Struts Miami Fashion Show by DezignNation (founded by Aguy Smith) and was completely blown away by Project Runway finalist Laurence Basse’s designs as well as a few other local designers. I had never been to a ‘drive-in’ fashion show but it was actually kind of convenient because it was cool in Florida that night.

I wore my Catherine Malandrino leather pants (similar below), a Club Monaco sweater and my Steve Madden sneaker heels. The show was in a parking garage and featured designs from House of Roxy B., Over a Trillion Served and more. They also had wine and pies from Pink Pie available at the show as well.

Army Green Wish Set

So I recently discovered Wish a website and app that features all kinds of merchandise for next to nothing! You order directly from China usually so it cuts out the middleman and makes the prices cheaper. I got this set for only $12. Now you would say that the quality was compromised right? Well, the set actually is a very good cotton and it hasn’t just fallen apart. I’m a fan of high and low fashion as long as we support our designers.

Anyway, this is a style perfect for the Fall. I paired the set with vintage Christian Louboutins from Bergdorf Goodman. Just layer it with your coats and jackets to be a little warmer in the snow!

Blue and White Striped Mark D. Sikes Dress

When I was in New York in October there were a few warm days and I wore this Mark D. Sikes blue and white striped dress with my new Proenza Schouler PS1 white handbag. Since I’ve moved to Florida, this handbag goes perfectly with many of my bright-colored outfits. And if you’re up north, who says you can’t wear white all year round? If not, check out some of these other colors that the Proenza Schouler PS1 handbags below!

Black Friday Deals and an Army Green Dress

Happy Black Friday! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving day, I sure did. I just love wearing this army green dress and my fringe sandals from Steve Madden (similar Kenneth Cole here). I found this dress at a small boutique in Soho a couple of years ago but here’s a similar one from Michael Stars. I’ve had this Veda leather jacket for years, it’s perfect to throw on when the temperature dips. Layer underneath for more warmth. 

I’m missing New York as we speak but I don’t miss the cold weather! Anyway, check out these amazing Black Friday deals and shop till you drop this weekend!

Karen Millen Work Dress

So Thanksgiving may be upon us but today is a work day. Although I blog, I still work as a financial planner and have to dress for the ‘corporate’ office at times. This Karen Millen dress may scream Florida but you can throw a leather jacket on it and rock it for Fall too. I just love the bright orange and black and white palm tree leaves. I paired it with a Khirma Eliazov clutch and Jean-Michel Cazabat pumps. I love this look for the office and beyond. Check out more photos below!
