Prabal Gurung Collaborates with MAC Cosmetics!


In a twist that we probably all saw coming, Prabal Gurung is finally launching a cosmetics collection with MAC Cosmetics, which was announced a few weeks back. The designer has worked with the beauty brand during fashion week for years now, and he has been one of the most watched shows by beauty junkies for his love of color and a great look. The collaboration will launch on November 26 as a 14-unit spring collection.  I am always excited to see new launches, and from what Ive seen so far, I must say I’m loving the bold vibrant red/berry colors let alone the gorgeous packaging.

Prabal also noted that his relationship with MAC is clearly a great one, and the collaboration with the brand just makes sense as well, due to their longstanding partnership. “When they came to me with this opportunity, I jumped at the chance. I’m really sensitive and emotional, so I really need to feel that connection with a brand. And MAC has a philosophy I believe in. The one universal truth I really believe in is that every woman – no matter her shape, size or race – wants to look beautiful. I wanted to create that.” I totally agree with his statement, and am looking forward to this launch. I sure the packaging of and quality of his product will be just as beautiful as his luxurious clothing line. What do you guys think? Are you just excited as I am?

Black Friday with a Pop of Print!


Hello Beauties Happy Friday. Although it’s a short week for me coming back from my mini getaway from Miami, I’m glad the week is over. Winter is right around the corner. So its time to bring out those heavy coats. Well at least I can say at least for now, who know with this inconsistent NYC weather. Today I wanted to share a quick post on what I wore. I’m sure by now you know all know I tend to gravitate towards black and cheetah print. I’m sure in my past life, I was a feline hehe. I wanted to keep my outfit quite simple, playful yet office friendly. My dress I wore a satin Zara cheetah printed dress, I paired that with black thick hues tights. On my feet I wore my black lace up Altuzarra booties which, I personally adore. Its the perfect booties for dressing up and down. My coat is a by Bebe, which I love. Its a super warm and trendy robed jacket perfect for this frigid weather. Check out my simple feminine, yet chic “Black Friday with a Pop of Print” ensemble.

Miami Getaway/ Cotton 24 hour Runway Show Recap!

 


Over the weekend, I decided to have a quick getaway with my girlfriends and also attended the Cotton 24 hour Runway Show in South Beach Miami, Florida. This trip couldn’t have come at a better time, being that the weather is cooler here now in NYC brrr.  My Miami getaway trip was perfect. I got to lay on the beach, ate at fabulous restaurants, partied and got to be apart of Cottons 24 hour runway show. Cotton’s 24 Hour Runway Show took place Friday, November 7 on the corner of 8th street and Ocean Drive, and with it comes an entire fleet of celebrities and fashion bloggers all celebrating America’s favorite material.

The weather was perfect, I got a beautiful golden tan listened to music and relaxed what other way to start amazing weekend getaway. I was a bit sick coming on this trip, but that did not stop me from enjoying the beautiful weather. As for my swimwear I wore a one piece bathing suit from American Apparel and HM accessories.
