Who is Christian Siriano

Today, while checking my google alert, I noticed a name repeatedly popping up. This lead me to ask myself, "Who is Christiano Siriano?".  So I started my search. This lead me on a glamours star studded trail of gowns and pose. 
I started with this first article that popped up on my google alerts. The headline read...
" Cardi B, Whoopi Goldberg, And Laverne Cox Sit Front Row At Christian Siriano NYFW Show "

I was intrigued interested in this designer. Something else, other than this name started to stand out. I noticed the diversity in this designers work. For women of all ages colors and sizes. Every single one looking amazingly glamorous. 
From names like Angela Bassett, Emily Blunt, Jennifer Lopez, Solange, Elle King and Whoopi Goldberg; this list goes on and on.

After a little more research on his website I found that Christian Siriano is the youngest person to ever appear on the Crain's “40 Under 40” list, and was a member of Forbes' "30 Under 30" in 2015. He was named “Designer of the Year” at the 2016 AAFA American Image Awards and won the Couture For A Cause “Designer of the Decade” award that same year. He co-founded accessories e-commerce retailer “Send the Trend” and served as Chief Curator until its acquisition by QVC.

The designer has an eye for every skin tone and shape. He knows how to make you glamours but also comfortable. This is obvious on every woman's face that I have seen dawning one of his fierced designs. He isn't afraid to use bold and striking colors. So many of his designs demand attention. You can deny the detail and thought that was put into his work. The consideration for the person who has the honor of wearing one of his pieces is very clear. For some pieces you can also tell who it is for without seeing the person wearing it.

Tailored pants suits, big skirts, to african inspired prints I can not wait to see what he will share next.

Soooo, a lot has happened since I first started this blog. I am now a mother of two beautiful rambunctious little ladies. I have done a lot of self revamping and internal evaluation. It's been a few years since I posted on this blog but I never once forgotten about this space. I know a lot of you have been vocal on where I've been. 

Just know that i'm back and better then ever. I have so much planned for this space. Form vlogs to lingerie reviews to behind the scene footage from my future photoshoots. I look forward to pumping out quality content for all of you.

Rouge and Nude with REBDOLLS

Tis the season to be grateful and fashionable. Hues of red and natural nudes are
popping up and turning heads. Now I don't know about you guys but I am super happy that Fall has finally come.
The bright colors and spunky prints were okay but that just wasn't my style. After awhile a girl just needs something classy and chic to make her feel sexy. I started to notice a pattern and it was women finding and wearing different shades of nude and rouge.



  "With My Woes" Long Sleeve Swing Dress

I am quickly falling in love with this trend and Rebdolls are doing perfectly. Cant you see it; during the day a nice nude colored ensemble with hints of black and red. Ugh just to die for right! One of the main reasons I think this trend is amazing is that it doesn't take much to achieve these looks especially with REBDOLLS many options. 

 "Masterplan" Caged in Midi Dress

"First Lady" Ponte Midi Dress

From dresses to jumpsuits the options can be worn for busy mornings to cocktails with girlfriends.  check out more from REBDOLLS  and to nab some chic garments during their black friday sale click HERE

Real Girl Real Fashion Ivy Maisonet

 Ivy Maisonet and what inspires her spunky original style....

I'm a pretty big movie and sci fi fantasy nerd and that does inspire a lot of what I wear. (Just ask my 2 full drawers of graphic tees! Hehehe)

 I love the beauty and elegance in old movies but also love classic rock and the grunge era, so I like to play with that particular cocktail!

I am an artist so clothes & creating outfits has always been fun for me! Its another form of art, just on your body! Its like a tiny adventure every morning building an outfit.

 My favorite places to shop are my job Torrid, Urban Outfitters, Hot Topic, Forever 21 and thrift shops are so much fun because you never know what you can find! 

I've also find cool things at regular department stores like Telco, it just depends on how you rock it!
