Fashion Trend: Capes

I spied a beautiful sweather-knit cape while watching Home Shopping Network. The best details of the garment are the pockets and that it doesn't have to be dry cleaned.

Follower of Fashion Photographers

I recently disovered a fashion photographer on facebook through one of my acquaintances Geary Marcello.
Fernanda Fernandes is an artist who has captured some of my favorite style designs. I truly enjoyed perusing the posted pictures. Hooray for animal prints and sophisticated pantsuits.
Coincidentally, tonight, the host on PBA 30 Georgia, is also wearing a stunning dress with animalistic motif.

CHILLY DAY11/26/2013

Today was a rainy and chilly day in Acworth, GA. I had to don my wellies and rain jacket and rush out to cover the daylillies due to the previous night's temperature drop. Hopefully, their splendor will not be daunted  for the spring.

An enlightening runway show but I'm not so fond of strings dangling from my garments; and in some instances it looks hazardous as the strings wrapped around and in between the model's legs. The only things I prefer dangling off me are a necklaces and/or earrings. The rhinestone rings were definitely eye-catching accessories; as well as, the handbags. And I love the pants and skirt suits; the white, silver, and copper color pallettes, and the impeccable craftsmanship in the jackets and coats. The rare print and reds were also a welcome site; but where could a woman wear such sheer tops with all the ta-tas showing? Spring 2014 was more neutral than previous Ralph Chado spring colletions that had yellow, pinks, fuschia, and other colors.

Without Wings and Feathers.

Another New York Experience Saturday, 09-14-2013

While in New York during MBFW Spring 2014, I had the opportunity to accompany a friend to a studio for   a stage lighting and sound  production for Robert It was a chilly Saturday and I thought I was appropriately dressed for the weather with my new purple and fuschia wrap ruana and NYC logo bag.
Unfortunately, I had worn sandals and didn't pack a spare pair of closed toe shoes in my new carry-all; after all that's the reason why I had purchased the satchel as I was commuting daily from Rochelle Park, NJ into The City. Suffice it to say my feet began to get cold early on in this adventure as there was miscommunication about the rehearsal time and we really didn't know where the studio was located, which happened to be on a side street in Times Square. So we were outside more than in and a Starbucks across the street had beckoned me to it's warm interior. But once inside the Roy Arias Theater at 300 W. 43rd St., Hell's Kitchen, New York, I spied a wonderful photo on the wall and information board with the words Ball Drop, LLC. I had to laugh because I had had a horrendous experience on New Year's Eve 2012 trying to attend the ball drop; which was never seen cause the police kept pushing the multitudes of people further and further from the intended site. And now here I was possibly in the same building of the infamous event organizers; of course I had to take a picture.

BMN-TV 10/25/2013

I recently received an email from an enterprising new venue, BEAUTY MEDIA NETWORK-TV and subsequently RSVP 'd to it's launch party for Friday, October 25, 2013 at Sha'Mari Salon, ATL, GA.
I made it to the masquerade themed event located at 480 John Weslsey Dobbs, Ste 130, ATL 30312 in the colors of the night: purple, green, and gold, complete with my authentic p,g,g, mardi gras mask; but everyone else was mostly in red and black and no one wore their masks. I quickly met the photographer of the night,, to take pictures against the red carpet backdrop. I'm waiting on her email with the wonderful pictures of me in my purple, crushed velvet peplum jacket, gold, spandex, skinny jeans, and colorful feathered mask. Alas, my iPhone was not fully cooperating as the photographer on this particular occasion.
Next I was pointed out to the mastermind behind BMN, Kimberly R. Cones, President. Her digital advertisement platform of BMN-TV aspires to assist hair salons, nail shops, and spas in customizing exclusive videos for each perspective client's establishment, that will showcase their events, stylists, facebook pages, fashions, retail lines, and products, such as BASIC Hair Care, one of the sponsors and donators of the swag bag.
There was food, drinks, and a presentation of Sha'Mari hair designs. The hair was fabulous and the model fashions quite exquisite. Infiniti of South Atlanta also represented with a drawing for a chance to drive an Infiniti for a weekend. (They've yet to call me concerning my Sha'Mari was the first tour stop of burgeoning new shows displayed on BMN-TV monitors. I like the idea and can see it easily replace the magazines of yore. I've already seemed similar entertaining advertisement in clothing salons. I always like watching the runway shows as I shop for new treasures.
