If you haven’t acquainted yourself with up and coming designer Monika Chiang, now is the perfect time to. Having just received an email about her fabulous shoes I thought I ought to give her website a quick spin. Always, a great idea for a new Spring/Summer wardrobe, and bad idea for my bank account. Because….I want everything! But instead I’ll share a few key pieces I love.

The “LAVA SWAROVSKI STONE NECKLACE, BLACK”

Lava rock and swarovski necklace

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This necklace oozes charm, style and a classic chic with a twist. The black lava chain gives it an industrial feel while the Swarovski classes it up enough to wear to a nice function. Absolutely a statement piece his screams little black dress and should be paired with something as fabulous as…..

Imena lace-up sandal

These shoes. These shoes that I am DYING for.

Lace-up sexy with a high heel to keep you above the rest the “IMENA LACE UP SANDAL, BLACK” screams La Femme Nikita. If James Bond ever turned int a woman she would bust these out. Seductress? Stiletto Sexy? Head turner? All of the above. I adore shoes so of course these are a must have on my list.

However, I am a woman on the go. I need to look smashing while being a little functional. Nothing says business like a black leather brief a la bag. I need a purse that screams business bitch, yet charms the man I am with.

Thankfully my search is over with the ever charming, “GABON LEATHER MESSENGER BAG”.

This is functional, classy and is wearable for casual dates with jeans and those^ heels (Imena has my heart). The Gabon has extra zippers for an ‘edge’ and is easily carried or worn cross shoulder if you have to hit the subway.I love the look leather gets after elongated wear. Leather is forever and can last through numerous business meetings, airline flights and keep me looking classy.

Have I piqued your interest my fashionista’s? Good. Go shop the Monika Chiang collection here:

Sweets Jewelry, Carol Lynn Sweet’s and How to Give Back! #Jewelry #Gorgeous #Charity

A classic piece of really nice jewelry can make a woman do anything. Clean. Cook. Melt into putty. Scream and squeal like a dolphin.

Really, we are suckers for that.

Recently I had the honor and luck of meeting Carol Lynn Sweets, of Sweet’s Jewelry, at LAFW 2013 in Hollywood.

More like, I jumped her and forced my business card into her face.
I had seen on the runway presenting gorgeous pieces that are sexy, sassy and made of GORGEOUS semi-precious stones. Think pearls, garnet, turquoise and jade to keep you feeling like a queen. No wonder I fell in love with her runway items.
Check out the LAFW runway presentation for Sweet’s Jewelry below,

Is it wrong I want everything on the runway I see?

After speaking extensively to Carol, I found out she is no emerging designer. Sweet’s Jewelry is featured in everything from TV to radio show’s. The list is massive.

A few worth mentioning are; Kick it Spot Radio, BRAVO T.V., MTV Music Video’s, Covergirl Photo Shoot, TMZ, 90210 2.0, PopCon 2012, L.A. Fashion Week, Miss Russia 2013 Swimwear Photo Shoot. 

I that isn’t enough, they are on every red carpet in Hollywood including; THE Emmy’s, ITV Awards, various Oscar gifting Suites and the Grammy’s.

Are you feeling the love? You should be. Sweet’s Jewelry is not all about pretty necklaces and rings and things. There is a softer side to her business that makes us at HeathyrWolfe.com love her even more.

In her spare time Carol uses a portion of her profits for philanthropy. Currently Carol supports and raises fund for;

LongBeach Aids Foundation. The Eric Wylde Foundation Children in Guatemala, Shine on Hollywood Magazine Aid for Artists, and Kierrah Foundation Aid for Foster Children.

Carol decided to give back to the community by creating a special area on her site JUST for charity. All the Jewelry sold on the Charity Pages 100% of the Proceeds go directly to the foundation they purchase from.

TV, Model Shoot’s, Red Carpet. I’m impressed.

It turn’s out this fashionista/diva need’s to pay closer attention to her accessories. Sweet’s Jewelry is not only well made and gorgeous but obviously THE thing to grab while it’s still available. Why do I say that? Each piece is original and handcrafted.

That’s right, you will be wearing a limited edition/original. Annnnnd yes of course she does custom orders. I’ve already ordered my piece so you better get cracking with your credit card darlings. Where to go to buy? Click the link below and get your’s NOW!

McQueen SS 2013 to Start Your Afternoon

Living or dead  I will always support the house of McQueen. Before Alexander McQueen committed suicide his work was unparalleled in a world of unique, strange and beautiful designs. Now Sarah Burton has not only kept the world of McQueen alive but has offered a fresh take that fits McQueen’s world like a glove.

This year an elaborate bee themed collection hit the Paris runway with geometric shapes and classic designs reminiscent of the 60’s. Mad Men-esque? Perhaps, but always with a twist of McQueen on top. Well played Sarah Burton.

10/15/2012 Maggie Barry & Michael Antonio Shoes Fashion Show. #LAFW #SS2013 #Stunning (photo/video)

I am a Michael Antonio Shoes fan girl. For a long time I have been wearing, toting and secretly adoring their shoes. I love the style, grace, comfort and sexy they bring to my petite feet. Quite possibly, I dream of Michael Antonio shoes, because they are not only wonderful to wear but a late night fantasy (shhh it’s my dirty little secret).

Michael Antonio Buckled Heels

Maggie Barry is a creative genius, bringing imagination to life. Her clothing has been worn by stars who walk on air and want art in fashion as much as she does. She created Cher’s famous leather thong outfit from her ‘Turn Back Time’ video and she works, and plays with such famous names as Lady Gaga, Miss J. Alexander (ANTM) and uses singer and model Morganne Picard as her spokesmodel for her brand.

Morganne Picard with Maggie Barry

LA Fashion Week on Monday, October 15th was a visual collaboration brought together by both of these artists & designers to create a step away from traditional fashion to bring Fashion fusion/footwear to life for Maggie Barry and Michael Antonio’s SS 2013 show in downtown’s nightspot, Exchange LA.

This brought designers, stylists, fashionistas, actors, actresses, fashion/event photographer, trend watchers and the artistic diva’s of the night out.

I ran into Eric of Prep Jerks whose business as a stylist and fashion forward man is booming. Keep an eye on him here http://www.prepjerks.com. He’s got a taste for business, design and fashion that is unparalleled. Go Prep Jerks!

The collection was stunning, eclectic, bright, beautiful, unique and I loved every moment. I ran into friends (Vikki Lizzie, Sabrini Paridisi) saw a freak chic ladies from acting (Bai Ling, Phoebe Price) and loved the sleek futuristic runway clothing and shoes. From the flash to atmospheric after party, this event was a win/win.

Let’s take a look at who and what showed up,

A very HUGE thank you to Bob Degadillo for use of his photos!! He always makes me look gorgeous

Yes men dressed well too. Kilt’s are ALWAY in.

Showing shoes to Eric of Prep Jerks. Available at Bizzy B of Hollywood.

Loved her outfit, classic black with perfect bow topper.

This is how to steal the show. Greatest hat I have ever seen as well. unfortunately it’s a New York city one-of-a-kind find. Sorry ladies.

Best guys to party with. Over bar the bar these guys were cracking me up.

LA girls

Packed!

The most fabulous jacket there. Missing in photo, the sequins attached to this were iridescent.

The show ended with a giant dancing orb

The show tapped into an amazing visual of light with a cross of adult animation come to life. Think Aeon Flux done right. I have to commend and recommend checking out Maggie Barry for those who haven’t seen her art and fashion. The woman is beyond a visionary.

Check out the runway video below (I was in an uncomfortable position making, however it somehow made great footage).

Vendors and fashionista’s it is now your time to pre-order and or drool copiously. I bring you the SS 2013 collection lookbook from Adolfo Sanchez Fashion titled, ‘A Rose in the Jungle”.

As always Adolfo Sanchez remains a favorite for unique designs and courageous fashion that leaps off the runway and digital page.

Feast your eyes;

Chanel SS 2013 For The Win!

We all know Karl Lagerfeld is relentless, superior, eccentric and bit of freak chic. With this years SS 2013 collection on a runway dotted with wind tunnels and eco fab, he is now insurmountable aka no one can bring it like he does.

Recreating the 80’s-90’s with a new and fresh twist Karl Lagerfeld focused on material and recreation of shape for SS 2013. Always an original he crossed pattern with shape making the figure less of a focus and focusing on big, bulky, large and fab! Always an original, he even added a little humor with his own take on obtuse bags, giving the house of Chanel a complete WIN!

Let’s take a look shall we;

(Forgive the late posting darlings, I am felled by the evilest of fever flu’s. If I don’t make sense chalk it up to my fever of 100 F)

Jean Paul Gaultier Takes Back the 80’s and Brings the Fierce, SS 2013 Collection (video/gallery)

I admit I am a huge fan of 80’s music. All things one hit wonder I have on my iPod and of course I am a ridiculous Bowie fan. I am also a HUGE Jean Paul Gaultier fan.

When these two things coincide and come together we have JPG’s SS 2013 collection.

This season he conquered eccentric costume clothing for SS 2013 and took the 80’s back. Jean Paul Gaultier re-created something that was both an homage and a new look at an old glamorous style with geometric shapes, sheer clothing and dashes of monochromatic mixed with blinding and beautiful color prints.

As usual he conquered Paris Fashion Week SS 2013 with everything Gaultier. With KISS in the front row causing quite a stir he started the show with fierce 80’s inspired suits, complete with sexy cut outs and ending with Amanda Lear and a cavalcade of sexy man beasts in mesh outfits sporting sky-high platform heels (not boots, heels).

Check out the full unedited runway video below;


And the gallery of all the looks below thanks to the illustrious Style.com

No wonder this man is one of my top five favorite designers. His insane quality, design, style and vision most definitely set him apart.

SS 2013 Dolce and Gabbana’s Platforms and Prints! Retro 60’s Africanique Chic with a Side of Grecian Goddess #funkalicious

Dolce and Gabbana never cease to amaze me.

I believe they are the one design house that is consistently creating fashion that is wearable art. Playful, chic, unique, specialized and always with a twist they outdo themselves every season, creating something most can’t even imagine as much as visualize and make.

Check out some of the over the top, brightly colored beach, Grecian & Caribbean print chic they brought to life;

Backstage, retro stripes and Grecian inspiration for SS 2013 D&G line

Backstage mirrored supermodel sauciness

Gladiator print on a stunning orange/sexy silhouette with stunning platforms and breton stripes galore this season

All hail the duo known as Dolce and Gabbana!

They are ALWAYS straight up fun. I hate stuffy designers who take themselves too seriously and these two always leave the show goers gasping and the runway smiling.

Adolfo Sanchez SS 2013 Collection From #NYFW

I love following the careers of designers who are friends. Seeing them struggle to make it in to such a tight-knit world. Then next day showing designs on #NYFW. This bitch is proud.

Adolfo Sanchez is no longer someone to watch for but to be watched. His designs cross the border from pret-a-porter to couture. Constantly ahead of the trend and never afraid to create unique and fresh designs.

This year Adolfo Sanchez showed his collections at the Chelsea Piers with a collection that reflected on the organic with elements of the ocean. Staying on trend we saw monochromatic mixed with dashes of coral, and tons of sexy skin.

Below is the entire collection for SS 2013.

Marchesa SS 2013 Brings an Bollywood Inspired Look to #NYFW. Chic, Unique and Against the Trend.

Marchesa designs are something to be loved, adored, worn on EVERY red carpet during Hollywood award season and absolutely kept an eye on. This year upcoming season we will be seeing gorgeous Bollywood looks from Marchesa hitting the red carpet.

The already stunning beauty of sari’s and embellishment is enough to tantalize the eye. This is Marchesa fashion house we are talking about though and a little more magic much be created.

Marchesa added a few of their signatures to create their ‘look’ for SS 2013. With fringe, plenty of skin, gauze covered dresses with oceans of organza they created ethereal goddess on the runway.

Dreamy perfection indeed.

Take a look;

Fringe is never out of style

A dress fit for a Goddess! (Or me?)

Indian chic in pink

This devastates, and the matching bag makes it red carpet ready

Layers of luxe fringe make this perfection and just a little sassy

Dress du jour! I love gray simply because it goes with everything and everyone. Too chic.

Show stopper in blue. This dress stunned me.

Keren Craig and Georgina Chapman PLEASE take a bow. Well done!

Marchesa is stand out collection this year. Although they included a few of the color trends on runways this year, they threw caution to the wind and created art in fashion.

Marchesa is one of the best for the simple reason they create the unique, not the trend.

Herve Leger Breaks Fashion Boundaries and Trend for SS 2013

Spring/Summer 2013 New York Fashion Week shows are absolutely mind-boggling this years. Prabal Gurung has gone psychedelia 60’s and the 90’s rock and roll grunge era is being relived on the runway by some of the bigger fashion houses such as 3.1 Phillip Lim.

As always Herve Leger has stolen the show by NOT following the trend. Unique and definitely for the chic, Herve stunned me this year by taking his bandage dress and creating a feminine flirty dress and using geometric shapes to accentuate the positive.

Take a look;


-Delicious harness work on this gives this monochromatic dress a little extra sexy style

This year he stepped it up with a swim collection to die for

Itsy bitsy teeny weenie monokini I need!

Blue Bombshell, my roomie and I will be fighting over this dress if it ends up in my closet. Perfect for every woman and every shape.

The weaving on this made my heart skip a beat. A true show stopper!

As always Herve Leger kicked of SS 2013 with over the top sexy dresses for the girl who loves her curves. The swimsuits on the runway were an added bonus. Herve Leger has my vote for red carpet delicious diva’s everywhere. Invest ladies. Herve Leger’s fashion stock just went up!

 

 

 

Eclairee 2013 swimsuit collection

Yes it’s that time of year where start looking forward to next year’s trends. What colors, designs, materials and of course, how many pounds we have to lose to fit into those new fashions . Well i bring you the entire collection of Eclairee Swimmer.

Time to get bathing beauty pretty ladies, looks like in 2013 skin is in, and so is colorblocking. This trend surfaced in SS 2011 and has been going strong ever since. Thankfully this next year will be more about neutral colors and not so many nasty pastels. Here’s hoping the rest of my fashion week forecast is this positive.
Happy shopping!
