Styled In The Heartland Hearts Edrop Off

 

 

Hey guys, sorry its taking me so long to update you! Last weekend i had the privilege of shopping with E-Drop Off ( a consignment based eBay store in Chicago IL) They had a annual charity warehouse sale, which i didnt make it to last year but this year i drove up at 2 am got there @5 and stood in line and managed to snag loads of designer goodies such as Lanvin Flats, Chanel , Prada, Fendi, Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs, Pucci, Elizbath Gillet, Escada, Bill Bass, Judith Lieber! It was madness the people in line, plus the ladies i stood in line with were funny! I had a great time in picking up some designer end items for a good cause. All the Money went to Charity. I also had the privilege of consigning items with Edrop Off they made it super easy for me all i had to do was drop of the item in the posh Lincoln park store.
I hope you enjoy this short quick post! If you would like to bid on my item Vist Here

Recap: Lets Push Some Prints And Pink

 

Let’s Discuss, Oscar De La Renta, now we all know this fabulous man  has been in business for along time, but seriously after seeing a few pictures of the collection not absolutely adore these. Lots of Brights, colors and streaky-colored hair! Look at that Hot Pink, i mean for real, Pink is really making a come back especially the bright pink. Oscar has been always known for his very tailored and glamourous look, thats why we love this collection.  (photos courtsey of tumblr.com)

 

 

Secondly we have Tory Burch, I used to shop at Tory Burch alot in chicago (boy do i miss the persian store carpet and those orange doors). But this collection was interesting because i wasnt seen the TB logo, everywhere. Alot of fun colors and mesy Fish tail braids. Also alot of interesting jewelry i saw in this collection but overall- awesome and lovely for spring.

 

 

now we have to talk about Marchesa, who is not only one of my very very very (VERY) favorite designers, i just Love Marchesa because its not only elegant but breathtaking and i hope to be married in some Marchesa wedding dress. But this little sampling of the s/s 2013 collection and I’m already in love with the bottom dress i love the colors and the train, i mean its so beautiful and the just the whole collection i fell in complete love with,

 

Last but not least Jeremy Scott S/S 2013 – Now if you know anything of Jeremy Scott you know that his outrageous with his outfits (ask Nicki Minaj since he designed her concert clothes) Hes also famous for those Animal Sneakers Via Adidas but this collection was interesting because it has a middle easter theme with the burkas, but he didnt leave the prints out Hello Animal Prints and Face Prints, even on the Men too, i wouldn’t expect less of Jeremy Scott to be honest with you, he is always over the top. but i do think his fashion is interesting to push boundaries which i do enjoy. so kuddos jeremy.

 

I hope you all enjoy this snidbit, and with that, good night!

Ok, so my last recap has to come from none-other than the DVF herself We all know how amazing she is, She is a member of the CDFA council and outstandingly talented, and this year she even used Google Innovation, glasses that shoot videos and pictures how cool is that stylish Meets Techie. LOVE!

NYFW… Is the promise land!

#NYFW is the land that everyone dreams of going, (hi i haven’t wrote a blog post in along time but im going to now) i’ve been dreaming of New York ever since i fell in love with the scene of it, but circumstantial things prevent me from going to it. I’m a die hard obsessive person when it comes to really interesting fashion, i had a chance to view the Alexander Wang show, and i about dropped dead when i saw that they were glow in the dark dresses, how could YOU not love something as innovative as that?  In his spring collection, alot of whites /blacks/ cutouts/ very bold lines. Very Interesting take on Modern sleek lines

you can watch the entire wang show here :

 

 

Amongst other things ive been following is alot of amazingness with Sirano this Spring, very “Merry Merry Ring Time Spring”. Lots of pastels, and frills but yet tasteful and elegant Christian, pushes himself i think more than what i saw of the Fall 2012 Line, from very dark to very light a very comprehensive cut/edit. I do enjoy the cleanliness of the dresses and very straight lines. and yet very girlish gleaming to the gowns

check out a preview here:

 

 

These two are my 2 major picks for NYFW because not only do i enjoy pastels, i DO love glow in the dark. ^ please watch these videos you will just be blown away at the enormous talent involved here. Someday i can only hope to be in that front row seeing that as you see it on the videos.

 

Love always
