JoyLovesFashion Takes Starworks Group Holiday / Resort 2014

This past week, team JoyLovesFashion had the privilege of touring one of our fave international designer showrooms, Starworks Group in Soho. They represent some of the biggest names in fashion and with the help of our guide, Fashion PR Assistant Kereem Morgan, we got an exclusive look at the Holiday/Resort Press Preview 2014 from Zimmerman, Sass & Bide, SB47, Cushnie et Ochs and more. And we get to show you some of the best pieces!

Starting off with Zimmermann. Created by two sisters hailing from Sydney, Australia- the line is designed with a love of sand, water and sun. And that love is evident in these resort pieces that we just adore. They are perfect for lounging by the pool, walking on the shore or braving a super hot day on the streets of NYC (or Sydney)!

Cubicle Chic: What To Wear To The Office When It’s HOT!

Cubicle Chic: style solutions for work

 

We’re finally in the thick of summer. Here in New York, some days it feels like you can cut the humidity with a knife. With temperatures quickly rising, the last thing you want to do is layer on clothing. But how do you remain professional when you literally don’t want to wear anything at all? The key is to stick to lightweight fabrics.

In this week’s Cubicle Chic, we’re showing you a few options for staying cool at the office when the temperature skyrockets. These are perfect when you’re clueless on what to wear to the office when it’s unbearably hot.

 

Relaxed Fit Dress
Cubicle Chic: What to wear to the office when it's hot

Dress / Earrings / Bracelet / Bag / Wedges

An easy breezy dress keeps fabric off your skin, allowing it to breathe. This Mango frock {less than $35!} is also a linen blend and is slightly fitted so the dress won’t overwhelm your frame. Add some fun neutral accessories like these anchor earrings, metallic bracelet set, tan bag and multi textured wedges. Just avoid heavy necklaces and long earrings that can stick to you in the heat.

Things Fashion Girls Do: The Capwell+Co Soiree

Posted on Updated on

If you follow me anywhere but here  on my other social media channels, you know I’m in New York and I’m interning for Joy Adaeze of JoyLovesFashion.com and curlsistas.com. One perk of interning for an established blogger and stylist is access to some pretty exciting events. This week I was able to attend a brand party at a swanky Chelsea hotel.

Tuesday night Joy invited me to the Capwell + Co. Sunset Soiree at the Cabanas at the Maritime Hotel. Capwell + Co. is a trendy,  jewelry brand that specializes in affordable pieces. The prices are a bit high for my post-grad, intern life, but they are very high quality pieces that look more expensive than they are.  The location was super cute; half inside, half outside with brief periods of cool breeze to save us from the hot day. Each of the tables were decorated with current pieces from Capwell and we got to take anything we wanted! I grabbed up a few really cute pieces that I can’t wait to style!

And if a blogger doesn’t take pictures at an event, did the event really happen?

Just a month after our classy fairy slaymother graced the cover of Vogue (and made this incredibly adorable video about braiding!) another natural sista is gracing the cover of a major fashion publication. Solange Knowles is Lucky Magazine’s August cover girl. Natural hair and all. Now if we can just get a natural girl on the cover of  September issue….. Well until then, check out these shots from Lucky’s upcoming issue. Guess I’m buying another fashion magazine this month!

Preakness Fashion

Posted on Updated on

Preakness Fashion
I in no way, shape or form claim to be an expert or even a general enthusiast about the fine sport of horse racing. I do, however, love the festive fashions and the even fancier head wear that accompany the Preakness race being run this weekend in Baltimore. I live for any occasion where one can wear a fascinator unjudged. The fancier the fascinator the better!  Check out some of the fascinating fascinators that could grace the grandstands at the Pimlico Racecourse for the Preakness Stakes. Check out my polyvore page for details on each item! Stay tuned later this week  for a guide on what to wear if you’re partying in Infield!
