| NYFW The Shows | Recap |

Another NYFW has come and gone! I still can't believe that I have been attending shows since 2014! I can still remember my first show like it was yesterday. Through the years I have learned so much about this industry; which unfortunately can be very shallow and un inclusive. Well  I am hoping to change that! This fashion week was Spring/Summer 2020 with many shows being held at Spring Studios which is an event venue on 6 St. Johns Lane in Tribeca and Pier 59 Studios in Chelsea, and of course the bigger designers had off site locations for their shows. I honestly miss the days that fashion week was in one central location like Bryant Park or Lincoln Center!! Please Lord bring...

| Summer Angles |

One again, Instyle Magazine has inspired me to try one of the hottest trends this Summer; which if you didn't know is "Angles"  Yes, dresses and skirts that are slanted with a swishy handkerchief hemline!  When I picked up the June issue of Instyle and saw it on the instant style page, I thought why not give it a go, and honestly I am so glad I did! To find this dress I went on a hunt to find an inexpensive dress which had the "Angles" I was looking for, and I found this dress at H&M for under $40.00.  Remember ladies you DON'T have to spend a lot to be fashionable or look good!!

| Print Party |

Happy May my loves!!! There is nothing like a print party and having fun with your clothes!! I am in LOVE with bold vibrant colors and fun prints, so when I saw the Instant Style ART CLASS in InStyle Magazine . I knew that I had to rock my colorful painted jumpsuit. I actually purchased this jumpsuit years ago from one of my favorite stores, De Janeiro's. If your in New York you must stop at this shop. They have such a great selection of name brand clothes for discounted prices. Ok back to this jumpsuit that I had for years and honestly never wore it. Which is not like me at all, but I thought it was "too much" or...

| Love Never Fails |

Happy Valentine's Day      "Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up;  does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil;  does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth;  bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.  Love never fails" (I Corinthians 13:4-8)     Me, being single I used to HATE this day especially if I had to go to work. I can't tell you the amount of Valentines gifts I watched my co -workers receive. An assortment of flowers, candies and balloons. OMG I wanted to throw up! lol BUT thank God that has changed. Yes I'm still single , but my perception...

The Beauty of L’AGENCE

Chic, sophisticated and timeless are the words that I would use to describe L’AGENCE’S F/W 2019 collection. L’AGENCE is a high-end California based women’s wear company that was started in 2008. The brand is available in 300 stores including Bergdorf Goodman, Barney's New York, Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom. The brand recently opened a flagship store on Madison Avenue in New York City. During New York Fashion Week (NYFW) I had the wonderful opportunity of sitting down with Mr. Jeffery Rudes the CEO/ Creative Director to discuss his role and what’s next for the brand.     Kia Danielle: How long have you been the CEO of L’AGENCE? Jeff Rudes: I have been the CEO/ Creative Director for a year and a half now. I am...
