Weekly favorites : February 23-1

Weekly fav's

For this weeks weekly favorites I went with a more edgy casual look.Since we are at the peak of the winter season I chose a Haider Ackerman long sleeve cozy turtle neck. Edgy in fashion would be described as a classic leather jacket.That is why I added a leather jacket.To tie in edgy and casual at the same time , I added a BDG high rise jean. While picking my weekly favorites I happen to come across these killer paisley print Nike sneakers , these sneakers are perfect to make any look casual and trendy. I also added these timeless Gucci earrings to create a look of edge and class .To add a pop of color I chose a Rimmel Kate matte deep red lipstick. Finally I added this to die for (LITERALLY) Burberry hand painted structured tote. This bag is a great touch to any look.

Designer of the Week : Band of Outsiders by Scott Sternberg Fall 2014 Collection

photo courtesy of Band of Outsiders and

Scott Sternberg designer of Los Angeles-based brand " Band of Outsiders" presented his fall 2014 collection during this season's New York Fashion Week .Given that each model was wearing dark sunglasses and the surrounding of the runway was a line-drawn illustration of an urban apartment in a state of disharmony with lean vintage silhouettes that were balanced with large boxy coats , I think it is to say that Sternberg was trying to portray a 1940's inspired collection.Some trends that were seen on the runway were menswear references , nipped waisted pencil dresses , pleated skirt-suits , fur toggle coats , and many more very womanly looks. Women all over the globe will go "Khaki wacky" over Scott Sternberg's Fall 2014 RTW Collection when it hits stores six months from now !
