Perfect for Home: Eberjey Sleeveless Lounge Jumpsuit

So, how is your quarantine life going? I remain positive that 2020 won’t be such a bad year somehow. Hopefully.
Anyway, I’ve been in the house doing all kinds of things and have found myself wanting to be comfortable but somewhat stylish at the same time. I came across this Eberjey Sleeveless Lounge Jumpsuit that seems perfect for wear at home. Neiman Marcus happens to be hosting a gift card promo where you earn a $50-$600 gift card with a purchase and the code GCSpring.

Check it out and let me know what you’re wearing in the house these days?

Black Leather Look Remix with Tom Ford Knee-High

It’s officially Fall! Though it may still be kind of hot, you can’t help but get excited for boots, sweaters and coats!

Check out a few options below and happy Fall.

Neiman Marcus and Target Line Flop

target-neiman-marcus-lead-11302012-thumb-620xauto-47724

So, everyone and their mother these days since the economy crashed in 2008-2009 has seemingly jumped on the ‘I’m a high-end designer for low-budget stores’ bandwagon. Well, it takes a lot to successfully run a high-end fashion business and one must do what one can to survive and thrive. But, the consensus seems to be that a high-end designer or department store like Neiman Marcus should just stay that way and not try to parlay with your say, Target customers just to make some sales.

Evidently, its wiser to have a Marc by Marc Jacobs line under your umbrella like the Marc Jacobs fashion house as opposed to looking for a permanent collaboration with a lower price point store/brand as it is just not your customer base. Designers jumped on the Neiman Marcus Target collabo and Target customers complained that the prices were much higher than what they were used to paying but not much better quality than all the other products. Prices were slashed almost right away and according to Time Magazine, the entire collection was marked down 70% starting January 1st.

I’m definitely keeping this in mind for my future projects. If you’re a high-end designer, it may pay to just have your own lower price point line under your own brand than to do a collaboration like Neiman Marcus for Target.

Wearable Art Inspiration: Charlotte Olympia’s Hand-Painted Shoes at Art Basel Miami Beach

Part of being an artist is seeing beauty in the unconventional just like Alexander McQueen says in his quote. For those of you who have just started following, I am beginning to develop concepts for my own fashion brand inspired by my artwork. Eventually I’ll have all of my artwork up here for you to view, but in the meantime you can view a partial showing of one of my pieces here.

In any case, I am annoyed that I am back in New York early from Thanksgiving (because of class and work) and not in Florida. But, like I said a few weeks ago, if you can, get down to Miami this weekend for Art Basel!

Charlotte Olympia has teamed with contemporary artist Boyarde to hand-paint shoes that feature famous works of art from artists such as Mondrian, Pollock, Picasso and more. She will be debuting the heels this weekend at Art Basel Miami and the limited-edition heels will only be available for sale at Neiman Marcus in Bal Harbor, FL. Check out a few of them below.
