I am always extremely humbled when I receive a compliment about my style! This year at Fashion Week My Pearl Covered Glasses were a huge hit! So I had to write about them and the inspiration for the look that went with them! I bought these glasses from Beacons Closet. they were 13 buxs (Tax Included). When I saw these I automatically knew I had to wear these with my pearls! well at least the first time I wear them! These Glasses are extremely light and comfy! When I wore them I felt like Coco Channel for some reason! Anyway I am all for Pearl covered Glasses and you should be too! find a pair and take a chance on wearing them!
(Me and Fashion Blogger Joy From www.joylovesfashion.com. Her Glasses are kinda hot too!)
Quick Funny Story! so after I bought these glasses I thought I was going to be the only person in the world with them! until one day me and my friend blogger Q from www.madamesmirror.com were on the train and she goes “hey look at these new shades I bought”. As she showed me her phone there she was Fab as ever in the same glasses I had! Except her’s were sunglasses! Great minds think alike!

Nina Skarra had an amazing Fashion Show this year at Lincoln Center. I was so happy to have had the privilege to view such a Fab Line. The show was packed and had a few celeb guests. One which I had the opportunity to meet!
Nina Skarra captivated the audience with 34 looks that consisted of beautiful colors. The line was filled with mauve pinks, ice blues,whites and champagne pieces. The show really set the tone for Spring/Summer 2013.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to attend Catherine Malandrino’s Spring/Summer 2013 Presentation. It was every bit of Fab! The theme of the presentation was “Majestic”. All the looks presented where a combination of sport with the beauty in royalty. Catherine Malandrino used a collage of French cotton guipure with stretch cotton jacquard , power mesh suede and stretch leather. Malandrino’s color palette consisted of frosted blues, mint greens, powder pink and pure whites. to check out more looks from Catherine Maladrinos line please visit www.catherinemalandrino.com
