Lower East Side bred Latina and former Cheetah girl Adrienne Bailon has bloomed into quite the fashion plate since the days of metallic empire shirts and ruffle mini skirts. Standing at a mere 4'11 (whoa that's tiny) she mixes trendy, urban and classic pieces to create her own signature style instead of ripping from the runway; something her taller counterparts can pull off much easier. Dressing an extremely small yet curvy figure is challenging, since the fashion industry doesn't particularly cater to 5'3" and under fashionistas like myself but Bailon makes it work. Try shopping for blouses with a short torso or maxi dresses that don't mop the floor *tears*. Her simple approach is also admirable in an arena where over-the-top triumphs. For NYFW 2014 thus far, she turned up for the shorties with fresh make-up, structured separates, and ornamental jewelry. More images after the jump.
Whoever said finding a great mid-range priced handbag was easy lied. A great mid-range priced bag meaning a convenient purse for everyday wear sans cheap material, unattractive hardware, and flimsy handles. Searching for one feels a lot like dating; we make a list of all the things we desire in a mate but that single flaw in the ones we meet bugs the crap out of us, even if it can be overlooked. No one is perfect, but settling is out of the question. So what's a girl to do when she has Hermes Birkin taste with a budget worth one tenth of it's price? Save herself until the right guy....I mean....bag comes along.
On Friday December 13th, I woke up from a nightmare at 2 am. In a cold sweat, I grabbed my phone and logged onto Instagram to distract myself from disturbing thoughts that lingered from my terrible dream. As I scrolled through, a mini montage popped up on my feed from Beyonce's account that grabbed my attention. "New Album maybe?" I guessed but because I haven't been a die-hard fan of her music since High School I dismissed it and went back to sleep.
Jay-Z's collaboration with Barneys dubbed "A New York Holiday" dropped a few days ago, and critics continue to slam the rapper turned business mogul's creative efforts. The collection is a small selection of pieces by premiere fashion brands including Lanvin, Proenza Schouler, and Rick Owens. Obviously, these items come with hefty price tags ranging from a logo t-shirt for $70 to a Hublot watch for $33,900. What more does one expect from the world renown high-end retailer?
