Street Style: SerenaJanine on the Streets of NYC

by EkiuwaJ

During NYFW many amazing looks grace the streets of Manhattan, there are fashions shows going on everywhere. I’d have to say the best part is seeing all the wonder people come out for the shows! So many amazing styles and creative ideas! SerenaJanine knows how to mix and match her pieces, she mixes her highs with her lows and that’s what we are truly inspired by. In my opinion animal prints are always great to piece with reds, maybe that just me! While headed to a fashion show Serena stopped to take photos of her look! Are you feeling this look? We are.

Shoes: BCBG

Clutch: Vintage

Jumpsuit: H&M

Up Close and Personal with Dolce & Gabbana

by EkiuwaJ

Dolce & Gabbana ENTIRE SS 2012 collection truly is amazing, however, there were a few pieces that stood out from the crowd. This vintage floral & fruit pattern truly inspired me deeply. This particular pattern and material is so nostalgic for me, it truly took me back to my Grandmother’s kitchen with the amazing flower + fruit wallpaper and each style has a 50’s & 60’s fill to it, this pattern is colorful, rich and full of character. Are you guys excited about this style and pattern? Are you looking forward to our favorite stars rocking this collection next Spring?

Share your comments below, I’d love to hear what you think of this particular style.

A collection I can ONLY fantasize about until I can afford it! LOL

Event: Changing the way the world thinks about BEAUTY…What is Beauty?

by EkiuwaJ

Inspired by the book, Changing the way the world thinks about BEAUTY, this discussion is an Exploration in BEAUTY.

Beauty is many things to many people, cultures, and ethnicities.

Join us at the MSU-Detroit Center as panel speakers define beauty from their multi backgrounds, discuss & dispel stereotypes about beauty, elaborate on the effects of media on beauty, and engage in conversation about various expressions of beauty.

Our objective at the end of this discussion is to acknowledge that even if different, BEAUTY is in ALL, if we EXPLORE deep enough.

Which Bangs will you be wearing this Fall? Help me choose!

by EkiuwaJ

So next week I am scheduled to slightly change my look with adding BANGS! Bangs are a girls favorite accessory, well at least for me it is! So bangs are always a BIG discussion for my stylist and I, simply because there are different ways to wear them. You have the option of face-frame bangs, blunt bangs, side swept bangs, layered bangs and many more. These styles above are simple and not so dramatic, in which I love.

Which look are you loving the best? I’m totally in love with Camilla Belle’s bangs!

Me last year with Bangs…I was in LOVE!

by EkiuwaJ

I contemplated over and over again if I would wear knee-highs with this look, then I went against it. This look was very chic and comfortable and FUN!  I decided to go without accessories, just one of those days. I felt the dress alone was enough. What do you guys think?

Dress – H&M great find for only $24.99

Accessories – Skinny Belt- 3 for $12.49

BCBG Paris Platform Peep-Toe Pumps – Totally forgot
