New ADIDAS Spring/Summer Originals Campaign

Check out the new ADIDAS Spring/Summer Originals Print Campaign. Missy, Muhammad Ali, and French artist Fafi star in this campaign and are known to have inspired the folks over at Adidas Originals with everything from new sneaks, to shades, to watches. My hat's off to photographer Nadav Kander. Well done.

fabulous new online magazine... strictly for the ladies

exciting news!!! clutch magazine launches online on april 1st! clutch covers fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and culture... and is all about female empowerment!

i'm thrilled about this magazine because there really is a lack of quality editorial that covers topics that interest and are relevant to the ladies. and clutch is providing great content with a super-sleek look and feel that truly satisfies our cravings for pure hotness ;)

clutch will drop a new issue on the 1st of every month, so ladies, be looking out...

more on clutch to come... in the mean time, here is a teaser!

shop chicago recap

gen art's shop chicago event was great... i was there, working as a "stylist" in acura's roadway to runway section. the photo shoot was a hit... and the line was never-ending. i got a chance to take a very brief run through right as most people were taking their booths down, but i was fortunate enough to come across the five booth... their fabulous, handmade clutches ("for a cause") are made out of authentic bamboo in a small village in bali... $5 from every sale goes to the balmese charitable foundation. check out their story and more products on their website.

dvf x scoop

diane von furstenberg (one of my favs- as you all know) created these super cute dresses exclusively for scoop... the gaby dress is all about bright prints and lots of leg. the mid-weight silk has a hint of stretch and loosely drapes over the body so that you can hide your mid-section and highlight those show-stopper legs. these dresses are perfect for ladies like me, who aren't into the nicole richie look, but still want a little glam. perfect for LA!!!
