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.

Anyway, check out more from the runways below!

A Few Sketches

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!

Five Fave Looks from the Met Gala 2023

Salma Hayek

Last night’s Met Gala red 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.

Fringed Shoes and Accessories at the Ulla Johnson FW 2023 Show

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?

South Florida Fair

This past weekend I had a ball at the South Florida Fair! We went and the weather was just perfect for my Good American sweats. We ate some good food- specifically a giant corn dog, funnel cake, steak quesadilla and lemonade. It was the total cheat meal! We hopped on several of the rides too and it brought out our inner child. The fair is closed now but if you’re in the West Palm Beach area don’t miss it next year. I didn’t even want Monday to come! Check out more pics and video below.

Lions on Schiaparelli’s Haute Couture Spring 2023 Show

Happy New Year 2023! I hope you are off to a good start. I couldn’t resist but to talk about the lions on the Elsa Schiaparelli Haute Couture Spring 2023 runway show. Supposedly there was some controversy over if the lions’ heads were real- don’t worry they were not real at all. But I’ll tell you one thing, you wear this and you will command a room. Check out how Kylie Jenner styled it above and what has been seen on the runway.

Bralettes on the Runway for Spring/Summer 2023

Burberry

So wow what beautiful clothes were on the runway for this seasons’ Spring/Summer 2023 collections. There were several trends but one of the most prominent in my opinion were bralettes. Cute skirts, bodysuits and dresses featuring cutouts and bralettes were all over the runway this season. Forget a crop top, just go for a bralette. Would you wear one?

Black Pleated Tulle Skirt from “Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot” Collection

Hey everybody. So, I’ve worn this skirt once in and around town and I just love it. It is indeed from my “Sunset on a Florida Parking Lot” collection which you can see archived here. It’s light and fun and perfect for a night out. I have not been out on the town ever since a man attacked me and cracked my teeth. It will come one day soon, hopefully. I’ve also been wearing this perfect shade of red lipstick that I adore. It is perfect with an all black look. I might have too much black in my closet as I am honestly a New Yorker. Anyway, are you enjoying fashion month? So much to see and check out. Will be back soon.

Sincerely,
