New Year’s Eve Beauty Looks: Celebrity Inspiration

On Monday night, we will celebrate the new year with some fun, festive activities! But whether you’re attending a gala or having a movie marathon at your home, we should strive to look fashionable while sipping our glass of champagne.

If you’re battling with the question, “what should I wear” why not find fashion inspiration from a few celebrities that “get it right” for every occasion.

And as we review our favorite fashion looks of the year, how can we forget Rihanna’s blonde hair, Kim Kardashian’s black mesh dress, or Jessica Biel’s black, Louis Vuitton pump.   In my opinion, the celebrities gave us “great fashion” for the 2012 year!

The Red Brunch at Tabaq Bistro: Networking Event

On Sunday, December 16, 2012 I attended “The Red Room” Brunch located at Tabaq Bistro in Washington D.C.  The purpose of  the event was for individuals in the Baltimore/Washington area to network, collaborate, and share ideas.  In addition, the new brunch series supported Carl Johnson and Silva Lining with their “Drive 2 Provide” Toy Drive.

During the brunch, Candice Nicole and Tommie Collins also raffled several gifts such as concert tickets, event tickets, beverages, art work, etc.   The brunch menu included a variety of breakfast foods ranging from mimosas, blood marys, omelets, pancakes, steak, eggs, and fruit.

There’s nothing like pancakes, fruit, and mimosas!  

 Networking, Networking, Networking

Candace used the color “blue” as an accent to her outfit!

Fashion Tips and Style Inspiration for Curvy Women

I am a petite woman with CURVES which makes me a STRONG believer that anyone can look great (no matter what size clothing you wear.)  This is my personal belief because I am the shopper who’s searching for a specific “size”  (in pants) but yet they have to be short enough for my height!

With that being said, I have discovered over the years that it’s truly not about the size clothing you wear but how you style your wardrobe.  And although there are certain items that are ONLY reserved for women who wear a size zero, our fashion industry’s so diverse that no one should resort to (ONLY) wearing leggings and a Mickey Mouse t – shirt (smile.)

Lucky for us, Marie Claire magazine has provided some great style tips for Curvy Women.   The article ranges from accessories, formal gowns, and hair tips.  Isn’t it wonderful to know that we can look good and feel great no matter what size clothing we wear!

Paris Street Style and Interior Design

Fashion is constantly evolving and we have to consider how it makes an impact from an international perspective.  The design qualities that are happening overseas not only makes a large presence in the American industry but also within cities around the world.

With that being said, the street style and interior design of Paris, France can not be overlooked!  Paris is considered to be one of the fashion capitals but also the home of several high fashion designers such as Chanel, Givenchy, Hermes, YSL, and Louis Vuitton.    

Quick Fashion History:  Paris, France

The french were the first to create fashion as an industry, going back as early as the 17th century.   Their royal court started the idealism of fashion trends.  This also began the evolution of fashion designers, wigs (beauty industry) and ready to wear apparel.  For additional information click on the link:
