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!

Cooling Out

TGIF! I’ve been cooling out and going through old clothes and things getting ready for fashion month. How are y’all doing? The Florida sunset is just gorgeous- I can’t help but take photos. This Gucci top has lasted me well and I remix it with jeans and even my gold pleated skirt (similar here). The beginning of the year is a great time to strategize and regroup, even if it means giving away clothes. I admit to having a nice wardrobe and always feeling like I do not have anything to wear. Do y’all suffer from this problem too? By the way, Farfetch is having a sale…enjoy!

Best of Fashion Month

Happy Monday! Have you been watching the runway this fashion month? Well, ModaOperandi has curated a list “Best of Fashion Month” where you can pre-order for your Fall/Winter 2020 wardrobe. This Ulla Johnson puff-sleeved sweater (above) made the list and some of the Tom Ford show that I recently blogged about are available too. Check out the full list here.

Putting Together Some Fashion Week Outfits and Rummaging in My Closet

i-ella-fashion-closetSo as Fashion Month is upon us I have gotten my calendar together and have to just put together those outfits. My closet is full of clothes and shoes and bags. Some that have hardly ever been worn. Some are my ‘faves’ and well, are in need of retirement. Rummaging through my closet became a sort of fun shopping experience. It was like my clothes and I became re-acquainted after some time. I pulled out that amazing winter fur vest and actually started to get excited for cooler weather.

img-thingI also began to realize that although there is much to do about ‘fall’ this and that. Fall just isn’t here yet. And that’s why they have pre-fall. 🙂 Anyway, I came across this amazing pre-fall Herve Leger number inspired by African prints. It’s too much like a Herve skirt from a few years back so I’m not going for it but it surely is beautiful.


By the way, have you seen the fashion shop? It’s updated.

All in all, since it’s still about 90 degrees outside this is the perfect time to catch some pre-fall fashion and sales!

Have you been looking? You absolutely must check out these sales. Peep the list. Everyone seems to be having one.

  1. Nordstrom is having an end-of-summer clearance
  2. Forzieri is having a warehouse sale (great accessories there). They also have a 20% code for new Fall stuff
  3. Boutique1 has some cute shorts and bikinis on sale
  4. Rag & Bone is having a great sale. Not to mention this great palm tree shirt. If it doesn’t scream summer, I don’t know what does.

Happy shopping and let’s enjoy the last days of summer.
