Hey guys, what’s up? I know it has been a while since I last posted on here. But a lot has happened in the past 11 months. If you follow me on Social Media you might know that I have had a beautiful baby boy. Khai was born Sep 6th, I essentially only took off 3 weeks and was back to handling Press, VIPs, Run of Show, Sponsors and Talent on Nov 1st for one of my client’s fashion shows. All while still trying to figure out my new role as a working mom. I was honestly overwhelmed at times and felt as if I was losing myself in being a mother. I wanted to quit everything at one point but one of my dear friends advised me to just maintain what I was doing for the next 6 months and that things will level out. Thank God they did eventually! Now I’m at the point were I can finally grow my business again. I’ve learned to work more efficiently and to not stress myself out on those days I don’t get much accomplished. I have some really exciting news!!!
I will launch an Online Fashion Marketing Class this summer which will help fashion businesses reach the next level whether it’s sales, targeting, social media presence, dressing celebrities etc. There will be assignments, Q&A’s, as well as personal one on one consulting sessions with me. As an added bonus I will share my resources and invite Industry Experts such as celebrity stylists, fashion show producers and magazine editors to the class to share first hand what they are looking for when working with fashion businesses. This class is for fashion designers, stylists, fashion bloggers, fashion photographers, fashion marketers etc. We have also received many requests in regards to fashion shows and how to plan and organize them. You asked and we’ve answered with a Fashion Show Check-List which is available for sale right now! This resource will guide you from start till finish, ensure you meet your deadlines and guarantee you won’t forget anything.
Well, Darnell Nicole from WAGS Miami who referred to herself as “A big bitch” was selected as a brand ambassador for the trendy denim brand which expanded its product offering to sweats, bodysuits, jackets, and sweaters. Darnell is definitely one of my favorite WAGS not only because she is tall like myself but also because she lives in her truth, is authentic, remains natural (no plastic surgery) despite all the pressure and embraces her curves. GOOD AMERICAN’s mission statement is “to celebrate curves with clothing designed to flatter and flaunt”. Who better to pick than Darnell? You guys should definitely check out her profile on GOOD AMERICAN. I had no idea she was a dancer. While you’re at it check out her Podcast Dear Darnell.
Now to the event… I follow Darnell on SnapChat and saw that she was coming to Dallas. The pop-up shop will take place tomorrow Friday 11-17-2017 at the Nordstrom in the Galleria Mall in Dallas (13350 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75240) from 1:30pm until 2:30pm. Shoppers will enjoy over 300 pieces on the floor and receive styling tips from Co-Founder Emma Grede (@EmmaGrede), Darnell Nicole (@DarnellNicole) and other ladies from the #GoodSquad such as Delilah Belle (@DelilahBelle) and Kim Johansson (@KimJohannson).
I am a huge fan of peplums, they originated in Ancient Greece and rose to popularity with Women of the 1940’s. Peplums were used to create a cinched waist and curvy hips, resulting in the perfect feminine silhouette. In the look below I am wearing an Esé Azénabor pencil peplum halter dress with hand-stitched embroidery from Esé Azénabor‘s Fall/Winter 2017 Collection. The fabric has a stretch yet keeps everything in shape similar to Hervé Léger‘s bandage dresses. The open back and zipper add extra sex-appeal.
Off Shoulder Top:
Lucille Ball, Brigitte Bardot, Natalie Wood and Grace Kelly all wore it. These style icons proved that a parenthetical swoop of material from shoulder to shoulder could magically make your cleavage look extremely appealing. The trend was brought back to life around 2014 and hasn’t left ever since. In the look below I chose a longer striped off shoulder top paired with white skinny jeans from Zara and metallic block heels from Asos. If you want to show legs you can even wear the top by itself if your going for an effortless look on the beach for example.
