This Mode PR sample sale is a must go-to! Definitely felt like I had to share considering all the great designers names that will be included. Below I am including the flyer, if you think you may have time make your way to 547 Broadway! And if not, make the time because at this sample sale you will see: Baserange, Electric Feathers, Oroboro, Lindsey Thornburg, Priory, Nomia, Samuji, Oak, Veronica Dreyer, Caron Callahan, Gray Matters, A Peace Treaty, Ichi Antiquites and many other vintage items!
I am sure you have noticed by now that the 90s is making a comeback, from the sweaters and sweatsuits to the shoes, the 90s are definitely back! With that being said, of course a bunch of companies will be making some of their own products to stay in the know. Guess, Reebok, and Champion have all already been making it especially with the help of promoting by top celebrities.
Esprit, a brand that you may have overlooked at one point is definitely one to watch now:
Definitely loving the pastel colors and the stripes! How about you guys? What are your favorites?
Now if at first thought, you thought of MJ like Michael Jackson than you are right! Looks like there are some teases that Supreme will be doing a collaboration with the great Michael Jackson! I did not know this but Supreme has done something like this before, like with Muhammed Ali.
The collection should include hoodies and tees! So far from what I have seen, looks like they are taking a few pics of MJ and are putting them in the center of their tees and hoodies. As soon as I find out more I will be updating you ladies and gents!
I’m not sure about you ladies but I like leggings! However, leggings haven’t always been liked in the Fashion world or even in the real world! Nowadays, I feel like they are acceptable just about everywhere and more popular than before especially with the athleisure trend that has been out for some time.
In honor of #TBT, I am going back, way back to the ’60s. According to my research, the leggings first made their debut around 1959-1960. The product that we cannot live without now, the almighty Lycra, was made! The leggings worn around this time were more dressy looking than the ones we wear today. Women wore leggings or “stretch pants” with the creases. They also wore them with stirrups on the end, which you may noticed is out today too! Around this time, if you wanted to be a polished woman you had to wear dresses. Even homemakers were expected to wear dresses all throughout the day even while doing all the house chores! I know this from my dear Abuela and from seeing the ads and commercials from that time.
During the 70s it was all about Disco! You may have seen the pictures, part of the Disco outfit to boogie included leggings. In the one type of texture that was ever so popular at the time, metallic! It was all the rage to have those shiny leggings. But can you believe that they only made them in small sizes so only for slim women who fit them!?! That is ridiculous! Another crazy fact was that for work, women were expected to only wear dresses in the office, pants were not expected until the 80s! For the most part though, it seemed like women chose to only wear it to the club more than anything.
In the 80s, leggings went from a dressy feel to a casual take. Most women wore them under dresses or oversized tops. This type of dressing became more a younger crowd type of thing. If you ever wondered when did athleisure, as we know it, make it big? Well, it wasn’t today but during the 80s! Fitness icons such as Jane Fonda and Richard Simmons became very popular with their fitness videos and that in turn influenced women to wear the leggings in fun different ways like with leg warmers and let us not forget those neon colors! Throughout this time, leggings became an important part of what we know today as, the athleisure outfit!
During the 90s, leggings kind of disappeared for a bit but when it came back it was worn more conservatively, always under dresses and skirts. Girls rocking the “grunge” look sported the leggings more. Later, more and more started wearing them. This was the time that the leggings started evolving into jeans, what we know today as jeggings. Everyone including myself loved this style, the way they were very tight with a painted on look. To this day I still wear jeggings whether they are “in” or not lol but as I mentioned before leggings are more for the “athleisure” trend that is around today. I also personally love this look as well. Comfy yet sexy, now what is wrong with that? Absolutely nothing!
Below I found some pics of celebrities that rocked leggings the way people did around their time:
Yes Coachella (short for Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival) is near and although I will not be attending I am excited for those that will be! The exact dates? First week is from April 14th-April 16th! + The second weekend is from April 21st-April 23rd! Where? At the Empire Polo Club in Indio, Cali.
You may have already heard some bad news like Queen Bey possibly opting out because of the twins of course! I mean she is an amazing performer but come on performing while holding two growing babies!? But there are also going to be other great artists/performers like Kendrick Lamar and Lady Gaga!
Hearing the words: music festival may mean different things to different people same goes for dressing for it! You ladies now that I am everything Fashion so I will be talking about different options of how to dress (makeup will be in another article) for the famous Coachella! TBH I cannot fit everything in one or even couple of articles because honestly the possibilities are endless! You can go for a “rocker look” or a “bohemian look” or a “sporty look.” Just like you are going to Coachella to have a great time, you should also have fun with your outfits!
I have gone to plenty of different music festivals myself but more of EDC festivals!  I made sure to have fun while choosing an outfit because if you have been to any king of music festival before than you know that you can pretty much wear anything! Don’t believe me? Wait until you see for yourself lol
Firstly, I make sure that I am dressing for the weather. Since Coachella is being in California and its going to hit the 90s! (Yes I checked! Up to 92 in the first weekend and 89 the high in the second weekend.) I am sure you are going to want to ultimately stay cool. With these temps I would dress lightly. You can find great little dresses and outfits at Forever 21 (they have a great “Festival Shop“) and H&M. I’m not sure if you remember but I wrote about H&M’s campaign with Coachella? Well H&M still loves Coachella! You can find all their items by clicking here! Fashion Nova also has a great selection in their “Festival” menu. You also have another one of my favorite companies of all time: ASOS who have a “Festival Essentials” section just for you! A recent favorite for me, Boohoo also have a “Festival Accessories & Festival Fashion” section. Even GUESS has “The Festival Shop” with apparel and accessories that can satisfy any look you are going for!
I am sure you have been the mirrored lenses all over the net and on some celebrities. There have even been modern goggles on a few. Accessories such as these along with gypsy jewelry and chokers are all great additions to your Coachella outfit! In each of the links I have provided above you will be able to find these and even more ideas to make your outfit festival ready!
Just to throw even more ideas that you will definitely see all over:

I have written about other great collabs NY&Co has chosen to work with, like Jennifer Hudson and Eva Mendes. Now there is another great collab! NY&Co and Gabrielle Union have come together to make a collection based on her “Being Mary Jane” show!
I have yet to see the “Being Mary Jane” show but from looking at the collection I can easily see that “Mary Jane” is a chic dresser. In her collection you will see pants, skirts, dresses and even shorts that maintain a sophisticated look. Prices range from about $39.95 – $109.95. I already think NY&Co is a great company because of their choice of apparel which for the most part, is sophisticated chic but I personally love them even more for all the sales that they have! Seriously, even though the prices I mentioned above are somewhat affordable for some, catch them on a good day and you can snag these items for even lower prices! From what I am already seeing this beautiful romper below is going to sell out fast! [Don’t say I didn’t warn you 😉 ]
One of my favorites is this sexy yet sophisticated ruffled lace up skirt! Plus for just about $70, I am eyeing it myself to see if I should get one (click here or pic for shortcut)
What are your favorites ladies??
Yes this awaited collaboration is finally here and I have pictures and prices of some of my already favorite picks! Her collection includes Womens (Plus sizes too!), Girls, Toddler, and Baby.
I do not even think I have to explain how Victoria Beckham is a fashion icon in her own right! Many must remember her music career as Spice Girls’ Posh Spice but she has long branched off from that field once she became a fashion designer. She actually started back in 2008 and since 2010 has become a NYFW fixture!
TBH I do not like everything she wears all the time but in general, I do like her style. Only thing I regret are the prices of her clothing line so naturally I was thrilled to hear that she was collaborating with Target! I wrote about it last year in October read it here.
But finally the day has come where I can see the prices of her pieces and I want to share it with you:
One of my immediate favorites was the gingham set which I personally loove and have to have
The top is $30 and the pant is $30, totaling to just $60! (Plus sizes are also available and at same prices!)
Being a fan of peplum myself I automatically picked out this jacket and for just $35, I liked it even more!
I am a huge fan of black but once the weather gets warmer and we reach Spring and Summer, I wear lighter clothes and Victoria’s collection also offers that. This marigold colored top is beautiful and with the $26 tag price, it should make it to my closet soon lol
I also love this orange romper here costing just $35, I see myself wearing this romper this Summer!
This striped poplin dress also looks like a great new classic type of dress, priced at just $35
Here are also adorable pieces for girls and toddlers: (she also has for babies) I absolutely love the gingham suit for little girls! The color is also too cute. (The set totals out to just $20!) The collared dress to the right is also cute, chic, and available in women! (They also have this dress in a beautiful blush pink color, each for $25)
You can see her other pieces here. Unfortunately we just have to wait a little more, until April 9th to make these pieces your own. I am thinking that this collection is going to sell out fast so best of luck shopping!
Yes, Nike Pro, one of the biggest sports name brand in the world, is officially producing a performance hijab for Muslim women athletes! The timing is also perfect being that #InternationalWomensDay + #ADayWithoutAWoman is tomorrow. Also, let us not forget the the whole month of March is Women’s History Month!
There are already Arab athletes showing their support like Zahra Lari, United Arab Emirates’ first international figure skater, already wearing the hijab here:
Now down to the specifics: the “Pro Hijab” is made of a thin layer of polyester with tiny holes so that it is breathable. They will come in dark and neutral colors. The price of the hijab will be $35 and will be available early next year, Spring 2018.
Fun Fact: Before announcing the “Pro Hijab” it was tested on Zahra Lari (pictured above), Manal Rostom, a runner and triathlete currently living in Dubai, Amna Al Haddad, an Olympic weight lifter from the United Arab Emirates, and fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad (who became the first hijabi American to compete at the Olympics for the United States last year)!

So ladies, what do you think about this campaign?? Groundbreaking or overpromoted?? Please let me know what you think!
Now, don’t just go by the title in that these trends are just for the runway because that would be far from the truth! Yes you may see most trends first on the runway but it also depends on us to take it to the streets! Some trends that were seen during Fashion Week were:
1. Maybe the cold weather that inspired it but the puffer jacket has made its way on the runway more than I have ever seen before. Love. love, love the off the shoulder design added to the jackets!:
2. Protesting through clothing with outspoken tees or accessories (remember those hoodies and shirts for the March? Click here) Below are some that were on the runway:
3. One of my personal favorites I spotted was one of my favorite colors to wear, that beautiful rust and burnt orange color:
4. Another favorite I was happy to see on the runways was velvet! Good to see that velvet is not going to go away any time soon! I personally have recently purchased velvet everything, velvet dresses, heels and boots! Lol
5. You may have noticed some 80s inspired effects here and there like the metallics, ruffles, the one shoulder, and the power lady suit (this one I feel like has to be seen separately)! What do you say ladies want to bring some 80s into 2017?!
Of course there are many trends you can spot on the runway but not all of them are, for lack of a better word, realistic, to wear IRL. However, the ones that I picked to focus on are definitely easy to be to rock in the real world!
