Tuesday Trends @ 2 O'clock (Independence Day Special Edition)

Happy Independence Day! Here are some ideas of what you can wear to avoid committing a fashion faux pas:
1. Try sticking to the holidays main colours, reds, whites and blues of course. You can totally wear these colors together if you know how to style them right. For example, I tried sticking to a (mostly) all white outfit with a splash of red as the main focus of my outfit.

2. Do try to keep it as simple as possible, as less is more. As for the accessories, if you’re outfit is a bit simple or casual, you can try and have some fun with funky accessories. For this outfit, I tried keeping it interesting with the fringe bag, just to add a little edge and oomph to the outfit. Between the bag and the blazer, they are sure the key elements of the outfit.

3. Other things you can try is having cool big earrings or a statement necklace to try and compliment the outfit. Hope this helps some of you get inspired for the Fourth, happy holidays!

Tuesday Trends @ 2 O'clock

What a season! The busiest week in Philly for me is always Philly Fashion Week. There is so much to see, people to connect with and so much art to witness. Here is a little of the progression of Philly Fashion Week as it stands today. I still remember attending the first model castings on Broad Street for what would be this exact event many years later. I didn’t make the part but a true lesson was learned. We are all apart of bringing this industry together in its own unique way. This week is where hopeful designers are given the opportunity to show some of their long awaited designs and have a step in the door, be one step closer to their dreams. Philly Fashion week has two seasons, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. This year, some of the lucky designers that were able to showcase their designs include Prajje Oscar, Unsatisfied Fashion House, Freemen By Mickey and JD Collection. Through the designs shown in their shows, the audience was able to get an insight of what and who inspires them. A prime example would be the JD Collection, who clearly gave a futuristic vibe off with some off his Balmain inspired outfits. The Unsatisfied Fashion House line was inspired by some of today’s teen trends, rebel-like clothing with a hint of posh, a trend that I am sure we will see around not only this Summer but in the fall as well.

I was graced with the opportunity to write a press release of this exhibit. The dresses represent timeless creations that Christian Dior has created throughout his lifetime. His signature frills and patterns bring out the feminine side of a woman, aspects that remind me of the dresses I used to wear when I was much younger, running carefree in the summer breezy nights. The silhouettes of the dresses were very 50’s and 60’s inspired, a time when cinched waists and showing skin was in, a big fashion risk and statement made by women. What I love about these designs is that it flatters the feminine body, accentuating the natural curves that our body has all while embracing our figures. I feel like nowadays anyone can rock these styles, despite what the fashion society stereotype had in mind. The pop of colour presented in some of the pieces showed that Monsieur Dior was no stranger to adding a surprise element to his creations. These designs are classics and staples that shall be seen in stick with future red carpets to come.
