All I Want For Christmas Is Tulle…

Standard

I’m still reeling from meeting Christian Soriano, who was the subject of last weeks Blog .

Imagine my joy when I saw Mariah Carey wearing another amazing design from him.

Mariah closed out the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City on Thursday by welcoming in the holiday spirit with a performance of “All I Want For Christmas Is You”

It wasn’t just the song, it was THIS DRESS!

The tulle Cristian Siriano gown with a pencil skirt and mermaid silhouette in a Very Merry Red also had a dramatic train that totally wowed the crowd.

The dress was so over the top, not unlike it’s designer or the Queen that’s wearing it, Mariah said “Don’t worry if the stage isn’t big enough for the dress, we will just make the stage bigger!”

Siriano continues to outdo himself with each passing design.

Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is this dress!!

On Golden Swan

Standard

Someone pinch me!!! This is by far the most amazing experience I’ve had during my blogging career.

Being a lover of all things Fashion, I was addicted to the show Project Runway.

One participant in particular has always been my favorite.

Last week I got to meet him!

Christian Siriano came to Belk at Southpark Mall in Charlotte to launch his collab with Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans, another favorite of mine.

I spend most of my high school days with a golden swan on my derrière.

This makes this collab even more special to me.

Gloria Vanderbilt Jeans launched the first styles from its two-year partnership with Siriano—a contemporary take on archival designs that includes jeans, dresses and tops available in sizes 26-34 as well as petite and extended sizing

The Fall ‘22 line features key silhouettes such as a belted trench coat, vest, mini dress, wide-leg trouser and a belted coverall.

CFDA Award winner Soriano, who studied in London under Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, put his own spin on this retro classic denim line.

He even has his own fragrance!

After his presentation we had the opportunity to take pictures and speak with him and SHOP!

I brought home a denim blazer which is very flattering on me and I can’t wait to style it!

Now, Siriano has designed some amazing pieces in his life.

One in particular has always been my favorite. I had the chance to speak with him about it.

I asked “Did you have any idea at the time, how huge the impact had on fashion, and on the entire world, when you dressed Billy Porter in the Ballgown for the Oscars?”

Soriano replied “This was one for the history books I think.”

It truly was a history making moment.

He continued “It was a very organic thing that just happened to the world. But it was very needed and really great and I think a lot of young people hopefully feel like they can wear what they want to wear and be who they want to be.”

This designer stands out for many reasons. I love all he’s done and continues to do for fashion. He includes every shape, size, sex and ethnicity.

I could honestly just end my blogging career now(don’t worry, I won’t) because I don’t think I can ever top this incredible interview.

This could have very well been, my Swan Song.

I ❤️ Coach

Standard

I’ve always had a Love/Hate relationship with the brand Coach.

I loved them for years. Then stopped for quite a few years.

Now I love them again.

Especially their heart shaped bags.

What a fun little bag!

Keep it casual or dress it up.

This little bag is full of sass!

This one even has an edgy vibe.

Which bag made you fall in love with Coach?

Let me know in the comments!

Palace x Gucci

Standard

Well, Gucci has done it again.

Add the streetwear brand Palace to their list of collabs.

One of the world’s biggest skateboard inspired streetwear brands has made its mark in the luxury world.

The Palace x Gucci collection is designed specifically for the streets, a place where Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele believes “fashion comes alive,” he said in a statement.

Gucci’s GG monogram meets Palace’s Tri-Ferg logo.

There are also football jerseys, jeans, loafers, running shoes, handbags, umbrellas, and womenswear, a first for the male centric Palace.

Also, in Gucci’s ‘over the top’ fashion, a monogrammed safe, equipped with a gilded lock and handle, leather detailing, and Gucci’s signature woven red and green stripe.

But wait, there’s more!

A MOTO GUZZI V7 motorbike (yes, a monogrammed motorcycle)!

Palace x Gucci will take on a physical form through Vault pop-up stores in Paris, Milan, Tokyo, Osaka, and Bangkok — the first brick-and-mortar moment for Vault — as well as Palace’s flagship stores in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo.

Gucci Royalty has entered The Palace.
