GLADIATORS

Standard

That’s right Gladiators, you can now dress like Olivia Pope. The series’ talented costume designer Lyn Paolo teamed up with Scandal actress Kerry Washington and The Limited’s Head of Design Elliot Staples to create a line inspired by Olivia’s covet-worthy wardrobe. The bottle and or glasses of wine not include!

What’s time got to do with it? Lyn just launched a capsule collection of
signature gloves with Dorothy Gaspar! I want 3 pairs- IJS

Art All Night DC welcome to Ward 8

Art All Night DC welcome to Ward 8

I had the pleasure of participating in Art All Night DC – Gateway Pavilion. It was quite and experience –

My collection got a great response from the audience. I made some great connections with models, designers and potential clients. I learned a lot about myself through this experience- I most absolutely have order at all times, I will not except half ass- ever, and to always be true leader even when adversity is thrown your way (or when there are egos in the room that are bigger than my breast). I was very impressed with myself for maintaining my composure and being professional without losing my cool.

Hopefully, I will have footage of the event soon… Until then here are some behind the scenes pics 20140929-125842-46722072.jpg

Fashion.Fun. Feelosophy- Make-Up

Standard

So, this ones for my “make-up” dolls and guys, Im sure you have been victim to the no make-up blues, lost new tube of your favorite color, using a Q-tip to get the last of that “Film Noir” out that tube for a vampire pout… Nonetheless! Make-up helps us create many alter egos; it allows us to transform our persona just as our wardrobe does. Our identities are created by many facets of our existence- where we shop, how we shop, what colors we wear, what time of day we shop and so on.
