Dear fashion enthusiasts!
I devote this post to my new discovery — Alona jewelry.
First of all, I am excited to announce that I won a Polyvore contest, and as a result, I was given an Alona Kimora silver ring. The piece is very unique and looks like a molten silver drip down the finger. I absolutely love it.
Alona jewelry first captured my attention at Mackage in Soho. The two businesses had a collaborative event. I think both brands stunningly compliment each other with their edgy styles and quality. Alona is about making a serious statement. Featuring a unique blend of avant-garde and edginess, most of Alona’s jewelry characterized by fusion of European and Middle Eastern aesthetics. It’s a very striking combo. I’m very happy that I discovered this designer.
What do you think of Alona’s ring? Would you pair it with a few stacking rings or wear alone as a statement? How would you style it?

What do you think of incorporating a sporty look into your wardrobe?
You’ve probably noticed from my previous posts that I like to infuse athletic items into my daily wear. From side stripe pants to athletic socks, I like to mix active wear with classic items.
I recently came across one of my favorite models, Adriana Lima, in Vogue Paris, capturing this style. It lead me to create a collage.
I think a simple baseball hat can make an entire look cool and modern. I particularly love the New York Yankees navy camo brand. You can find it at www.fanatics.com
The site provides many styles along with other sport products.
I go for chic, sporty, androgynous look by mixing a simple classic dust coat and T-shirt dress with cut out high heels. I’m also selective when it comes to accessories. For example, I recently discovered La Mer watches. The wide range of styles is fantastic! I like the watch with stud detail for an edgy twist. Mango aviator sunglasses, transparent clutch and camo baseball hat complete the entire look.

How does the most technologically savvy fashion company celebrate #NYFW? Polyvore stands out for technological sophistication. Unlike other events, I was able to plug-in my devices into charging stations and a USB adaptor was included in the free goodies. I connected with the other Polyvore members via a big screen, which displayed Instagram posts.
I enjoyed the cozy ambiance of the Soho House library, which was filled with vintage decor, makeup/hairdo primp from Sephora and DreamDry , delicious brownies, a large cup of delicious coffee and the opportunity to win a Chanel surf tote. I felt like a spoiled kid!
It was a perfect way to start the morning, get renewed and continue my new journey in jewelry design.
Dear friends and fashionistas,
I just started working for a jewelry designer, so my fashion week posts are a bit behind. I am thrilled about my new opportunity. The designer mentioned I will be able to learn how to design luxury jewelry. The entire industry is a blend of art and science. There are so many interesting things to learn.
For now, I share photos from a fashion week event I attended — the launch of Pink Magnolia’s spring summer collection, Nichim, at the Hotel Americano in Chelsea, Manhattan. Nichim means flower. The entire collection is inspired from Chiapas. The focal elements of the Nichim dresses are geometric patterns, florals and chic tulle skirts.
More #NYFW event reviews coming. Stay tuned!
If I had to describe Venexiana’s new collection with just three words, I’d pick sparkle, glitter and rock ‘n’ roll. The entire collection is a fusion of rock ‘n’ roll and 1930s Hollywood glam. Standout pieces included metallic, almost futuristic gowns. The high points of the collection’s modern edgy glamor are slim silhouettes with accents on bias cutting and exquisite fabrics. Here are my favorite shots:
