Eco-Friendly Fashion for a Cause!

31 Mar

This is just too cool not to share! Marywood College students, close to my hometown in Scranton, PA, were recently part of a Dress for Success fashion show. The interior architecture students joined forces in creating eco-friendly and recyclable outfits out of every day materials. Magazines, paint swatches, cork screws, newspaper and more! The fashion show luncheon helped raise money for Dress for Success. Coolest idea ever, in my book!

Check out the link for FABULOUS outfit ideas! It’s definitely inspiration for my closet! How about yours?!

Hey Fashionistas!!

I’m excited to finally get this blog up and running! So what’s the first item out of the closet? Iconic fashionistas. There are so many beautiful women out there who’ve made an impact in the world of fashion, and I admire every single one of them! But the one woman who has fascinated me for years is Audrey Hepburn– elegance, class, grace and beauty. She embodied it all. Images of Audrey have inspired me, not only with my wardrobe but with my apartment. Her black and white iconic photos, from Funny Face and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, make amazing wall art.

And in the spirit of black and white, here’s fashion tip #1: black and white is always in. Yet, I know this isn’t anything new, being a fashionista, you are already know that! The challenge: making a classic look your own. My advice, sometimes it’s in the simplicity of the outfit.

PROFESSIONAL LOOK: Wear your favorite little black dress with a white blazer, but add a flashy accessory (just one), like studded butterfly ring or red stiletto heels. Sexy, yet sophisticated.
