Here’s the thing about blogging,…You sit in front of your computer, perfectly poised to write a story and inspire your wonderful readers on the topic of white dresses for Summer. Just as you’re posting the first white dress that you are lovvving on-this happens. You find that the white dress is made by a label you are not familiar with. Now this is a major conundrum, since I am pretty much sourcing fashion 24/7 and thought I knew just about every designer out there or at the very least heard of them in passing on Pinterest,Vogue or Instagram. Imagine my surprise, when I come across this beautiful white confection and the image source listed is Designer Alex Perry. I ponder for a nano second: “Who is Alex Perry?” Come to find out (faster than you can Google his name at warp speed), Alex Perry is an Australian Fashion Designer with some pretty fabulous style. He designs dresses That’s it… dresses. Beautiful sleek,stylish dresses that are gorgeous and tailored to perfection.

Here’s a sweet sampling of his designs.

Meet Sebastian Grey

Category: Designer Spotlight
Project Runway Season 17 WINNER-South Florida Designer Sebastian Grey

Sebastian Grey-remember that name. Sebastian just won Season 17 of Project Runway and I have a feeling his path will mirror that of a previous winner named Christian Siriano. Christian has gone on to great success in Fashion and I have no doubt that Sebastian will follow a similar path.

Originally from Columbia, Sebastian came to America to pursue the American Dream. He had a vision to be a designer and make beautiful clothes Until winning Project Runway Season 17, Sebastian made a living cleaning homes and designing in his spare time. Clearly gifted and unbelievably creative with a vision, hard work and design skills that hedge on being “couture worthy” his days of cleaning houses have ended. Winning Project Runway not only allows him the freedom to finally have the money to design and market his own line of clothing but establish his brand in the industry. I have a feeling we’ll all be clamoring to wear his creations in the very near future.

A sampling of some of Sebastian’s previous designs on Project Runway.

The weather is finally getting warmer and it’s time to put away those heavy jackets and opt out for some lighter fare.

The perfect topper for just about any outfit this Summer is the Kimono. The kimono made a major comeback last Summer and this season it’s even more versatile.

Pair your pretty kimono with your favorite jeans and cami, or opt out and layer over shorts with a tank, use as a swimsuit cover up or even layer over your favorite body hugging summer dress for interest. No matter how you decide to wear your kimono- it can be comfortable and stylish. (your basic fashion win-win)! It’s no wonder that the kimono has made a comeback!

Wonderful White Suiting

Posted By: Terri
Category: Fashion tips

Once upon a time (long,long ago) wearing a white suit was only deemed as “appropriate” between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Anytime thereafter, it was considered an absolute fashion fax paus to wear a white suit. Well, that was wayyy back then and this is now. We seem to have loosened our style rules and women are wearing and pairing white year round. This “loosening of the dress code” for wearing white suiting brings about a few tips that will ensure that your white (suiting) looks right whatever time of year you decide to wear it! Here are a few favorites:

Burberry
  1. Fit is KEY to making making you look your best. You can buy a less expensive suit but make it look Designer quality with the aid of an expert tailor.

2. Mindful Monochromatic Dressing: Nothing will make you look taller and thinner than wearing all one color and this is especially true when it comes to wearing white. You can add a POP of color when it comes to your accessories. It will complete your look and keep the slim line of your silhouette intact.

Michael Kors Collection White Suit @ Net a Porter $2,195.00

3. Style Staple: A good white suite can last for years so “buy well buy once.”

4. A white suit looks best and skims your body better when it’s lined.
