The Look of Last Week: Soul Angel

I am going to try something new, I will begin posting “The Look of Last Week”, where I will review fashion looks from the previous week.  I hope that it will keep me posting more consistently and I hope that you all enjoy.

Most of you don’t know that I am a huge fan of Solange.  I think her style is impeccable.  Her look is very feminine, and she encompasses all styles: Classic, Vintage, Modern and Edgy.  She able to keep her look together and still be a fabulous mommy.

Last Thursday, May 26th, Solange attend the 6th Annual DKMS Linked Against Blood Cancer Gala at Cipriani in NYC.  She donned an ivory Stéphane Rolland Spring 2012 gown.  She looked amazing. The peplum inspired gown had a long train with a gold plate at the center of the waste.

With minimal amount of makeup she pulled this look together with her hair pulled back in to a sleek bun. I think she kept her makeup pretty simple to not take away from the dress, but I think she could have used a little blush and eyeliner, just my thoughts.

Image

Solange with Ashanti. One of Ashanti’s better looks lately, but I cant say I truthfully like the fade to red hair.

Image

Solange with Heidi Klum and Katharina Harf. Heidi looked nice, as usual, in a pale blue Temperley London Spring 2012 center split gown.

Hope you enjoyed this post, talk to you later.

NJ’s Full Figured Fashion Week Sneak Peek Day 2

Hey all, I am sorry I have been slacking, I have been MIA, just been a little busy with different things going on around me. This is just going to be a quick post on of Day 2 like a promised. ENJOY 🙂

This was the best night of the sneak peek weekend.  The venue was gorgeous. Everything about it was beautiful and elegant. The fashion this evening was by far the best of the two nights.  The designers were well chosen for such special evening.  The quality of their designs surpassed all my expectations, being that they were very low because of the night before, lol, I have to be honest.

Carl Thomas was there, he preformed, and he still got it-meaning his voice!!! He’s handsome though.

        

This is during his performances.

  

Here are a few of his most popular songs.  Sorry I could not figure out how to rotate the video. But watch closely Carl Thomas is funny on  the low. Some parts of the videos he really has me laughing.  **For some reason I can not figure out how to get the videos posted but as soon as I do, I will put them up, Sorry 😦 **

 

This is what I wore.

 

 

Jacket: Vivienne by Vivienne Tam

Tank-top: Target

Pants: Thrifted [they were supposed to be cropped the but hem I put in them fell when I got to the venue 😦 ]

Shoes: Aldo

Clutch: Thrifted

Hope you enjoyed!

New Jersey’s Full Figured Fashion Week Sneak Peek Day 1

This past weekend I attended New Jersey’s Full Figured Fashion Week  Sneak Peek, hosted by Nfinite Form.  The events took place at several different venues.  The full fashion show will take place in September, in Atlantic City.

Friday was the first night of the event, it was held at Wilshire Grand Hotel’s  The Loft in West Orange.  There was a red carpet fully equipped with paparazzi and media, although I missed it.  The Loft was an extremely nice venue, but I don’t think that Nfinite Form showed cased the best/quality designers that night, I can truly say I was disappointed.

Here are some of the designs (I didn’t have the best angle to take pics that night):

  

You can tell the quality of the show when you see the model’s undergarments.

This is one of the designers:

Here is the next collection, the best of the night!

Another look:

This is one I would wear, I love the lace:

Last collection of the night, SMH:

     

These were horribly made and not flattering at all!

**They did not give a list of designers, therefore I do not know who designed each collection**

I also ran into Doria Pagnotta from the hit show Jerseylicious. She is soooo pretty in person, very approachable and friendly. Love her. She is definitely not the character they portray on the show. My friend Latoya was there as well, she got us the press passes.

 

Lastly this is what I wore:

     

Blazer, Purse & Necklace: Thrifted

Tank-top and Ring: Forever21

Jean Shorts: Old Navy

Shoes: Nine West

Watch: Target

Hope you enjoyed, my next post will be Day 2 of New Jersey’s Full Figured Fashion Week Sneak Peek! Stay tuned 🙂
