This weekend I went down to Miami for Art Basel Miami Beach. It was an amazing show full of beautiful paintings, sculptures, champagne and even oysters. I wore a grey Alexander Wang dress(similar here), my grey Alexander Wang handbag (similar and on sale here) and vintage grey Lanvin metallic sneakers. It was cool down in Miami this weekend so I also wore my Veda leather jacket while outside.
If you love art and haven’t seen my artwork, click here. Prints are available for purchase if you fall in love with any of them. Maybe next year I will show with a gallery. Anyway, check out more great artwork from Art Basel below!
So I just love sequins. As a bigAshish fan, I’d find any excuse to wear sequins and would wear it for just about anything. It’s a great way to brighten up an otherwise dull winter wardrobe and that’s just what designers had in mind for New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2017. Milly, Jeremy Scott, Alexander Wang and more all featured a sequined item or two in their fall/winter collections. I just love these pieces.
So I just love this outfit for summertime, especially for the office. It’s so hot outside that you can just throw on a sweater or blazer for that freezing air condition. I paired a neon yellow Joie blouse with cobalt blue silk Alexander Wang pants for a bright summer look. Of course, I’ve been wearing my neon yellow pumps(similar and on sale here) to add another pop of color to the outfit.
Recently, I stopped by the new Vivrant Beauty Shop in Harlem for a quick look-through. I met Desiree, owner, who explained to me that most of her products are from black-owned companies. Her shop is full of products for women of color too and I just wanted to grab a handful of the stuff and try it! Brands like Briogeo, Helli Coily, Soultanicals and Oyin all are sold at the store. Most of them are natural products, free of toxic ingredients which is really important.
So, we’re giving away a beauty gift bag! It’s full of beauty goodness: Girl Hair products, Eden Bodyworks Coco Shea Berry Natural Moisture Milk and Natural Smoothing Gel, Mario Badescu Skin Care Line, the most amazing soap from Flo + Theo, and other samples. Simply like ourFacebook page, leave a comment on what you think about the shop, or follow us onTwitter!
With the snow being such a mess and this winter being so cold, I wanted to be comfortable even for New York Fashion Week. I wore my Spring 2014 sequined Ashish sweatpants(NEW SPRING 15 VERSION HERE) and my Michael Kors sweatshirt in a very loose outfit for Nolcha and Hernan Lander shows. I just loved these sweatpants. Want to know why? Well, for one, it is a sweatshirt/sweatpant combo, both super soft and easy to wear! Secondly, sequins just make everything better. Not to mention, they are very big on the Fall 2014 runways. We’ve seen sequins bedazzling the runway from Marc Jacobs, Rodarte, Tom Ford and more.
Speaking of comfort, have you entered my winter comfort GIVEAWAY? Only a few days left! I am all about being comfortable and stylish in this horrible winter we are having. Don’t forget to enter and check out more photos of my outfit and favorites from the Hernan Lander show below!
Black and white is definitely still the perfect color combo for Spring 2014. Cushnie et ochs seems to have made black and white its signature color combo and others like Louis Vuitton have simply done full shows in black or white recently. Balmain sent a beautiful black and white houndstooth coat down the runway (shown above) while Alice and Olivia put together a gorgeous black and white jacket and blouse (shown below).
