Big news! Early this September H&M will be launching their highly anticipated Paris Fashion Show Collection in select stores. The line consists of mostly rich black hues and is based on the style of Parisian women; effortless and simplistic chic. Here are a few of my favorite pieces.
This vest is my absolute favorite....and it's only $79.95!

Saw this coat and just assumed it was a good $ flash! It's $59.95; can you say 'mine'?! Lol

I'm Getting It Together

Hey guys!
  So I know I've been m.i.a for a while, but for good reasons. In the past 3 months I have worked tirelessly and even picked up a couple of internship opportunities. I just came out of Atlanta's Apparel Fashion Week and worked on a few projects with the Prom Markets, which by the way was....incredible! I got the chance to have my own models to dress and send down the runway and quick style them (I've never done that before). The crazy part about it was as I was about to send one of my models out to walk, the zipper on her dress jammed and I totally freaked. I called for assistance and even my helper couldn't get it! We zipped it as far as we could, luckily it was a side zipper, told her to keep her arms down and sent her down the runway. The show was a success and there were no other mishaps...phew!

Here is a photo from backstage before the madness.

My partner for showroom pickups helped me choose garments to pull for the shows....

I encountered gorgeous gowns during this time!
Doesn't this just make you want to dress up everyday? Lol

The Great Gatsby

This weekend I went to admire the beautifully created and directed, Gatsby. I was so taken aback on the costumes, visuals and music I just had to blog it. Each scene captivated me, not only because of the action and thrills, but every piece of clothing worn for male and female were simply breathtaking. As I come to find out, the designer behind these amazing creations was the one and only Miuccia Prada with costume designer Catherine Martin of Moulin Rouge. I am such a huge fan of this book and this movie really did justice to the book and made my friends and I want to watch it multiple times. Here are just a few looks that I just could not get enough of...

Mrs. Carter at H&M

So time is winding down and Mrs. Beyonce Carter's swimwear line for H&M collaboration is rapidly approaching. The collection is highly anticipated and when I tell you the pieces are pretty intense....take a look- see!

I absolutely love this high-waist caftan look; a definite must have.

The commercial is 1:21 of sheer greatness! And the song is on repeat.

Fashion's Foundation

Some years ago my cousin introduced me to this amazing liquid foundation by Maybelline. Through the process of moving and traveling the states, I eventually used it up, and for some reason, couldn't find it anywhere. Recently, going through my (still packed) boxes, I discovered I kept the bottle. I am so excited because now that it's back in my life, I will use it religiously lol. Enough with the back story, here is the incredible product that has me jumping for joy and wanting to spread the news!

(Honey Beige and Caramel shown above)

The cool thing about this foundation is that it is very similar to (and cheaper than) the 'Fit Me' foundation with shades starting from Vanilla to Caramel. I was originally going to buy two of the same, but both of these colors are really close to my complexion, so I'll test them out and keep you posted!

H&M Look Book 2013

Of course you know I am completely obsessed with H&M. Not only because I work there, but because it is the #1 fashion retailer in the world. We offer fashion and quality at the best price and from the looks of this look book, along with the prices....amaze! These outfits are styled to the max and I love them all.

For this Spring, it's all about floral (duh!) and pastel prints. I've definitely gotten more comfortable with mixing prints than before. I've learned that you should have fun with fashion and styling and have it be an experiment. So this Spring and Summer, get into your closets and express yourselves fashionistas!

Here are some of my favorite looks:

I love how the looks are monochrome but have that simple added chicness.
