Hey y’all! So it’s that time of the week, Throwback Thursday! I thought I might post a lingerie shoot I did back in 2006. I was scouted when I was about 12 years old in Texas but my mother didn’t want me to get involved in that. I was again scouted in as a teen and got into modeling. Unfortunately, I started working in finance and stopped pursuing a modeling career. I have been a visual artist since I was a child and modeling, photography, art and fashion really go hand in hand.
Anyway, maybe one of these days, I’ll tell you more about it in a book or something? Anyway, happy almost weekend!
Hey y’all! I recently had a conversation with my cousin in Texas who said she just sometimes had trouble finding good clothes for her body since she has had kids. She had several including twins, I remember when she first made the family announcement that she was expecting. What a joyous time.
So, anyway, I thought I would put together a few suggestions that are great for a new mom or just a tired one. These are right in line with the new Fall 2023 trends and will cover you up in the right places. Just remember you and your new family are beautiful, men could never deal with a pregnancy. We are strong!
The Chunky Sweater
Puffy Black Coats, a classic. And this Moncler one in the fashion shop.
Art inspired clothing(like mine). This Akris dress is a perfect statement piece for the office.
Denim skirts like this flowy Wash Lab Maxi Skirt
What do yall think? Dont stress about your bodies, you’re beautiful any kind of way. There’s always something to wear to flatter you, no matter your shape!
A brand named Hellessy caught my eye recently on the Neiman Marcussite. The embellished denim trend has been going on for quite some time now and I just thought this denim shirt and ribbon detailed jeans stood out. Sylvie Millstein started the brand out of her Soho apartment after working with other brands and retailers around the world. Don’t you just love the detail?
This beautiful velvet red rose on denim walked the runway for Fall/Winter 2023. Isn’t it just gorgeous?
So, LUISAVIAROMA and Vogue teamed up recently to show some of the most iconic designer looks on the runway. I just couldn’t help but be in awe with the selection curated by Edward Enninful, British Vogue Editor-in-Chief. From Moncler to Alexander McQueen, there were some gorgeous looks in the show. Which do you like? You can see more of the show here.
Good morning! Have you been watching the fashion month shows? I couldn’t help but notice the floral trend on the runway. Yes, April showers bring may flowers but it’s defintely present on the runway along with the see-through trend. And I see plus-size is being included more and more as well.
I’ve always liked flowers as I used to help my mom plant tulips at my house in Washington, D.C. We also had a cherry blossom tree that would just be gorgeous right around my birthday. Check out my artwork shop, especially my recent Flowers Everyday painting.
Hey! So what’s going on? I’ve been caught up with some of my own issues in life. Lot of rumors going around- be careful with jealous people especially in your own family. But, anyway, do you like some of these sketches? They are from the past and I have some sketches inspired by my Bob Marley “Songs of Freedom” painting. Many have told me that they love the painting and would definitely be interested in seeing some of my products inspired by the painting. Would you? If so, send me a message or comment below. Am looking for an angel investor. Let me know if you know one. Have a good night!
Last night’s Met Galared carpet did not disappoint! Many came dressed in black and white ensembles to honor the late Karl Lagerfeld but others like Salma Hayek above wore bright, fierce colors. I just loved Salma Hayek’s red Gucci dress and think she was definitely among the best dressed on the red carpet last night.
Gigi Hadid donned a gorgeous, custom-made Givenchy dress that was just jaw-dropping. These two looks along with Rihanna’s Valentino number, Janelle Monae’s Thom Browne outfit and Sydney Sweeney’s Miu Miu were among my favorites of the night. Scroll down to see more of these beautiful dresses.
Fringe has been on the runway this season. So have cutouts and sequins. But fringe is certainly making statements this Fall/Winter 2023 New York Fashion Week. Ulla Johnson showed her gorgeous garments and I just fell in love with some of the accessories on the runway. From tie-up flats to bejeweled heels, Ulla Johnson definitely made a statement. What are your favorite details on the runway this season?
