#FF 90s Nostalgia

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?

#MM BECCA X Chrissy

palettecloseupbecca

If you are into highlighters as am I then you would know that one of the top highlighter brands is BECCA! This brand is famous for most of their products containing shimmer but not that glitter type of shimmer but more like that shine from within type look that everyone loves or what people call that “BECCA Glow.” I have their famous Backlight Priming Filter and I absolutely love the glow effect that it leaves. You can even wear it by itself.

Now BECCA is working with the amazing mom and multitasker, Chrissy Teigen! They are making this Limited Edition Glow Face Palette, yes Limited Edition, that honestly looks like my next summer palette! Their site breaks down what is included in the palette beautifully here:

BECCA’s Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Rose Gold” (which is actually Chrissy’s favorite) | New Luminous Blush in “Hibiscus Bloom” (golden pink coral) | New Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in “Beach Nectar” (juicy apricot shade infused with gold) | and their New Sunlit Bronzer in “Malibu Soleil” (medium amber for that “sun-kissed look”

Release date has not been announced yet but you know that once I know, you will know! The price for the palette will be $46.

Would you ladies purchase this palette??

#FF Supreme X MJ

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!

Art + Fashion = LV x JK

If you love art and you love fashion then you will love this new collab of Louis Vuitton and Jeff Koons called “Masters”. Jeff Koons is an artist who

“has brought imagery from his long-standing ‘Gazing Ball’ painting – a series of large-scale hand painted reproductions of works by the Old Masters – to a range of Louis Vuitton products”

fragonard

This collection features purses,, totes, and even book bags with Classical paintings such as the all-time famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci (c 1503-1506) , Wheatfield With Cypresses by Vincent Van Gogh (c 1889) , The Tiger Hunt by Peter Paul Rubens (c 1615-1616), Mars, Venus and Cupid by Titian (c 1546) , and Young Girl Playing With Her Dog by Jean-Honoré Fragonard (c 1770).

How much will one of these bags sent you back? Prices ranges from $585 to $4000.

Just a little reminder…

We have talked about Rihanna’s Fenty X Puma collection before (if not, don’t worry just click here!) Well I just wanted to remind you that it drops today! Her collection includes almost everything you would see RiRi wear herself. You will see oversized sweatshirts, laced up leggings and those shoes! And with somewhat affordable prices ranging from $80-$150 you Can Not go wrong! Make sure to make your way to her site and Puma’s as well! SIX:02

Breaking News!

I know I have you guys used to #TBT on Thursdays but I just found out some great news that I just have to share with you all immediately! I think I can make the general statement that we all love H&M right? (I used to have a bad relationship with the store before- in that I used to feel that it was overrated for the quality I purchased from them but they have come a long way & now like any good comeback they are way better than before) That being said, how about if I were to tell you that H&M is coming out with a new brand!?

The name of their new brand, “ARKET.” The meaning of this word?? Well translated from Swedish means “sheet of paper”…Whaaattt?! Well it actually means more than that in the Nordic tradition, a blank sheet, represents “a sense of optimism” for the new brand. Arket will be a collection of women’s, men’s, and children’s RTW (ready-to-wear) apparel and accessories. They are going to have house goods and other items from other new brands as well.

Arket’s prices are pretty affordable, ranging from 39 euros (about $42) to 115 euros (about $124).

Sadly, Arket’s first flagship will not open here at NYC but will open on Regent Street in London. Good news though is that this isn’t something we have to wait too long for because they are opening in the early fall! I am sure we can also see them online so I will keep you updated on that as well xo

#FF Gabrielle Union X NY&Co

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!nycoxgu

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??

#FF VBXTarget is finally here!

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 :)

ginghamoutfit

The top is $30 and the pant is $30, totaling to just $60! (Plus sizes are also available and at same prices!)

peplumjacket35

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

marigold26

 

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!

Happy Shopping

#TBT UD x Basquiat

Urban Decay (UD) is honoring Jean-Michael Basquiat’s most iconic artwork by making this beautiful Limited Edition makeup collection. As UD calls him, “the most influential artists of the Twentieth Century.” Mr. Jean-Michael Basquiat was a great artist born from my very own city. He actually started off as a graffiti artist (like the famous “Samo is Dead). It was great to see how he hustled in my beautiful NYC by selling postcards and sweaters which featured his artwork, before he made it big. One of his popular artworks was “Dustheads” (1982) Unfortunately, he passed away too early at 28 years but I think its great how his artwork is still remembered…

Some may agree, as I also came to learn, that makeup is an art form and I think Urban Decay made that point clear with their choice of inspiration!

Below you will see what is included in the Basquiat CollectionScreen Shot 2017-05-02 at 8.31.34 PM Screen Shot 2017-05-02 at 8.32.22 PM

 

Everything you can think of from lipsticks, to eyeshadows, to blush, to eye pencils and even beautiful cosmetic bags featuring his works. You can buy each separately or you can buy it all together in a beautifully made vault box, whole set for $165. This collection is definitely for the artist in you and will be available to you April 20th!
