Well kittens I am off to LAFW and I can’t be bothered. However, obviously I DO care.

So in all fairness I will leave you with the brand spanking new Chanel No5 editorial video of Gisele Bundchen looking like a million dollars, in the ocean, down an alley looking sexy, sultry and positively radiant.

Enjoy the gorgeous that is Gisele!

Barring Eyewear, For your Indian Summer #BarringEyewear #Unisex #Sexy #Savvy #Cool #LimitedEdition

There is nothing in life we appreciate over more than super smooth, couture, limited edition fashion and accessories. Especially when involving an edgy, sophisticated, cool that reminds us how ‘special’, ‘one of a kind’ and ‘super exclusive’ we are. Add sustainability (we love that), and polymers we can pronounce and we’re sold.

With this damned heat, sun and Indian Summer we’re all experience we need shades 24/7. Unfortunately most are cheap, break and last about 5 minutes.

But…what if, you could have the James Bond of shades? Durable, almost unbreakable and made by some cool scientists in Philadelphia who decided durability and design were the ‘cool’ new thing to do.

I spoke with one of the co-founders, a young genius, Joseph Wang over the phone and this is what I learned. Three incredible young men came together with a vision, some scientific knowledge and a goddamn great idea. Cody, Eric and Joe decided to create and amazing line of sunglasses, named Barring Eyewear, and succeeded. Each one named after a neighborhood in their hometown they have created a sustainable, and slightly invincible product.

Superior, above par, hand-made and packed, they created and started selling Barring eyewear. Their customer? Someone who was looking for something a little more beautiful and durable than the average shade. In doing so their project has soared to greater heights. Not just in their current market, but as a multi-level, superior product.

Let’s talk science, because you need to know how bad ass these are….

Manufactured with high-grade, tri-acetate cellulose (TAC), every lens features TAC polarization, wrinkle protection technology, scratch & shatter resistant layers, and provides 100% UV protection from UVA and UVB rays.  Polarized and Category 3, UV protection, this combination provides crisp vision and eliminates glare.  All of their lenses are FDA approved and exceed European Union standards.

Sweet deal!

Want? Yes. Need? Yes, Please! Because it get’s better.

All frames come with a branded wooden case or branded sunglasses case (NOIR glasses), a microfiber wipe, and a dual draw string micro-fiber travel bag, making it a great for you and/or a loved one.

As if the beautiful packing, product and scratch resistant lenses weren’t enough to sell me, they offer a LIFETIME WARRANTY!!

Barring Eyewear also gives back.

In 2014 due to an unfortunate loss of a family member, the owners of Barring Eyewear decided to start donating to charity. They are donating $1 of every sale to Cancer Research. You know how much I admire and adore promoting companies that give back. Barring is not a just superior in product, but attitude as well.

Check out the gallery below to see their product line to get your shopping glands salivating;

Let’s go over how ‘cool’ Barring is again, shall we?

Barring Eyewear is handmade, scratch resistant, polymer rich, sustainable and charitable. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving.

Now for the semi-bad news. They are so damn hot on the market right now they are selling out. Pre-sale selling out. There are only 200 of each Barring Eyewear item made, making these ULTRA Exclusive. We love exclusive but it makes things a little harder to get. Especially as we go into the gift-giving Holiday months.

If the glasses you want ARE sold out you can PRE-ORDER yours by going to their Indie Gogo site below.

Alexander McQueen SS 2015 Avant Art #SS2015 #Spring #Leather #Flowers #Flourish #WearableArt #McQueen

Sarah Burton has taken the Haus of McQueen and made it a fully functioning palais de genius since McQueen’s unfortunate departure in 2002. Her sense of style, art and the dramatic have become a beautiful beast with a dash of feminine mystique.

This season the Haus of McQueen has brought laser cut garments, with an Asian inspired flower design and detailing in leather. With a flourish of kimono like dresses and garments that are reminiscent of the early 40’s, Burton inserts her own twist of the modern with cut out breast petals and dashes of embroidery. Add unique latex mask’s in a stunning representation that is truly, wholly, McQueen wearable art.

Check out the SS 2015 line below.

Things we love to support! Survivor Campaign by @LisaReillyPhotography on #IndieGoGo #CancerSurvivors #Bills #Help #Charity

Giving to the people, from the people rarely exists these days. Half the charities out there are a tax shelter and the other one’s don’t get any love unless helmed by a celebrity.

But wait! There is hope.

There are those of us on this planet who live with our heart on our sleeve and actually acknowledge human suffering on this planet just….to help. We’re talking about the small donations and ‘random acts of kindness’, YOU bring into this world.

That is why I stood up and became part of Lisa Reilly Photography’s AMAZING Survivor Campaign.

Lisa, who I met at LAFW had originally approached me with this campaign asking me if I would be willing to help raise funds and awareness for Cancer Survivors and their families, who are unable to pay for treatment or are left with hundreds of thousands of bills.

Check out Lisa’s IndieGoGo video for The Survivor Campaign!

I was happy to help. I also joined this campaign, being a Cancer survivor myself.

In 2013, I went for a routine check up and found out I had cervical cancer. I had to have surgery, which saved my life but left me with permanent complications and painful memories. However, they managed to cut the cells out of my body before they did major harm. I was a lucky one.

As I worked on this campaign other began to help as well. Tracie May-Wagner, CEO of May-Wagner PR contacted me. She wanted to help. She brought her client, the amazing Victor Wilde of The Bohemian Society on board. He in turn donated two pieces of his SS 2014 collection. Proving to me that there is ALWAYS support.

(Faith, Humanity, Restored)

No one should have to stand alone in their battle against cancer. Emotional or physical.

Shooting with Lisa underwater was extraordinary. It took everything I was doing this for and changed it.Not only was I helping others who have been through and going through pain, but I created something positive out of my Cancer experience. I never thought I could look back at this as more than a charitable session but it really changed how I look back at having had Cancer and is giving me a chance to empower others that have had it.

Check out the video out of the amazing video of Amy W. & I shooting underwater and describing our experiences (Video by D’arby Rose) ;

The women pictured in Lisa’s campaign have all fought and lived with Cancer. The women above have Stage 4 Aggressive cancer, survived a double mastectomy and cervical cancer. Going through chemotherapy and severe treatments that have costed them time, sanity, health and a small fortune.

Donating to this campaign will help them continue their fight. We’re taking donations as low as $10 to help raise funds and have packages up to $5,000 for every size and income. Please help us reach our goal so Cancer victims stand a fighting chance.

@KarlLagerfeld Makes Everything Old New Again, Mod Inspired Shoot with @NumeroMagazine #French #KarlLagerfeld #Photography

Unkle Karl strikes again!

10551693_690028547748747_3876725206762386476_o

Taking Numero Magazine to new heights, Karl Lagerfeld went behind the lens and created 5 original ‘Mod’ magazine covers with ‘Pop Couture’.

With a sixties psychedelic background, Karl Lagerfeld gives us ‘joie de vivre’ Parisian style, including fashions by;

Jean Paul Gaultier, Dior, Armani Prive, Valentino and of course Chanel showcase a youthful and carefree side of couture – still elegant but completely in line with the way modern women dress.

I don’t know about youthful and carefree as much as devastating, gorgeous and scintillating sexy.

Bravissimo, Karl Lagerfeld! Your creativity knows no bounds. Check the other four masterpieces below.

And Karl said,”It’s never too early to care about fashion”. Presenting North West in Chanel #BabyFashion #Kimye #NorthWest

When Karl Lagerfeld said , “It’s never too early to care about fashion.”, I don’t think this is what he envisioned.

o-BABY-NORTH-570

Baby Kimye, aka North West is looking darling in Chanel including her first garishly, over priced baby Chanel bag.
According to the nice people at the Huffpost, baby North is posing as a model for the CR Fashion Book.

I can just hear it; “With her mother’s good looks and her daddies ego North Strikes a fierce baby pose sans booties.This evening attire can be yours for around $20,000 dollars you were using to re-finance your house.”

OR you can just take in the cuteness people. Yeah, I can’t hate on North West. It is the one thing Kanye and Kim did right.
