“Women always try to tame themselves as they get older, but the ones who look best are often a bit wilder.”- Miuccia Prada
The story of the almost 100-year old luggage company is a family/love kind. Miuccia’s father created this empire and he would not have agreed to Miuccia taking over the company but however, he wasnt left with much of a choice. His son didn’t want the job! After her father, Miuccia continued to build the Prada brand around quality leather goods. Together with her love interest Patrizio Bertellis who had ingenious marketing ideas, Prada really started to grow at a high-speed. MIU MIU was formed much later by the fashion duo.
So my question is to the accessionistas, is high luxury fashion dead? Should I not one day-dream of affording such a life? Well up until here lately the Prada and MIU MIU stock was doing pretty good but now in the times that we live saving is EVERYTHING so I am all about creating these high fashion looks for less. How do you do that you say? I am glad you asked; pick out a look and if you love it go create it piece by piece.
Some of my favorite places to shop are very affordable; they inlcude Target (need I say more), JCPenney (Ming by Mango line rocks), Express (business and social life clothing), Victoria Secrets (fierce tops and dresses). So my accessionistas go out and get accessorized for less!! Where are your favorite places to shop for less? Let us know so we can check it out!!!! Until next time accessionistas…SHOP ON AND MAY FIERCE STYLE BE WITH YOU!!!!

I was flipping through the new In Style magazine checking out the trends for the fall, and honestly I was tired of the same old- same old. I was looking for some trends that really popped not anything classic but something fresh; something we needed! So I turned passed Gucci, Chanel and Calvin Klein but when I ran into the be-jeweled trends that are hitting the streets Lanvin did it on them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lets take a look!
The most important thing about jewels is how to wear your hair! The sleek look is what you have to wear according to In Style magazine. Do not, I repeat; do not overdue the accessories. Too many accessories with this dress would be overkill! Lol! So ladies season and holidays are upon us and these looks are easy to create at home so DIY or hit the stores! Until next time XOXOXOXO! Oh shop Lanvin at http://www.lanvin.com/e-lanvin/INT/.
“Any man may be in a good spirits and good temper when he’s well dressed.”- unknown
Today a blockbuster “Think like a Man” will be hitting movie theatres all across the country. The title I am assuming is advising women to “think” like a man. Really, wow! That is good advice and I know our smart ladies will take it, however some of our men could learn a little on attire from us dapper ladies.
As I have mentioned previously; I love a well-dressed man! So, having said that I just had to throw some examples up to inspire our men to dress like Men!! What makes a man’s attire HAWT to you! Do you think a man’s attitude changes when he dresses better? The models up top have on Giorgio Armani and the model below is wearing Express! Can you say HAWT!! The model below has a Calvin Klein suit on (love it). Toodles and once again this is Shannon, your fashion accessory signing off. Have a great weekend!
