Half of Summer Recap: NYFW Men

We have not been on the beach in St. Tropez or Antigua. But we have been extremely busy covering numerous events while our founder mourns the death of her beloved father.

NYFW MEN:

This season was better than last in terms of the ease of check in, and  the quality of  fashion presentations.

Our standouts were:
MarniRo:
This designer makes clothes that are unisex. The ultimate piece that I fell in love with was the Navy Blue Men's constructed lace shirt, which is stunning. Also this designer had a floral two piece, a classic baby blue two piece, which was a throw back to the 90's. Another stunner was the white two piece with the lace inset for men.
MarniRo in terms of creating quality unique pieces for men that is well constructed and took the cake is amazing.

OAK
OAK is another designer that gave you a deconstructed feel. The stand out piece for me was the male duster, which was awesome. As well as the splatter sneakers in white with black splatter or black with white splatte…

Beauty Spot: Trendy Make Up

So, we did it and broke tradition and bought trendy make up, here's our results:1. SinfulColors Kylie Jenner line:
There's this one color of metallic green and blue and if we can wear it all week, we would. Lasting time if you don't do any house work it is one week.
She also has a suede nail polish that is matte in blue and maroon, which is amazing. Again last time a couple of days apply any gel top coat to get that lasting effect.2. NYX
This LA line has been launching stores all over NYC even one next to a MAC store!
We bought for 28.00
1. The Vinyl Eyeliner which is a  high gloss  eye liner that is cheaper than Loreal Butterfly brand and it does last !
2. Next thing we heard about their Lingerie Lipstick which rivals AHBV which is a matte lipstick and it goes on creamy and dries matte, we choose a light mauve that would go well from day to night.
3. Gold creamy texture eye shadow and we used of course a primer with the Vinyl Eyeliner looks amazing! Especially for an All …

Healthy Summer Eating

It's summer and the BBQ's are glaring with creamy potato salad or mayo based lobster rolls.Here's our alternative that is sure to keep your waist line trim and have you eating delicious all summer.1. Eat tons of fresh water based fruits, melons, pears, peaches, plums,etc.2. Eat small amounts of protein on big portions of salad greens.3. Drink plenty of cold water and infuse it with mint, basil or fresh citrus.4. If you are out and about in the city make certain you carry cold mini bottles of water and raw nuts so you can avoid dehydration and your blood sugar doesn't drastically dip.5. If you are going to drink, choose white or rose and champagne. Excessive alcohol tends to dehydrate.6. Instead of simple carbs in the morning choose fresh fruit, organic yogurt and raw nuts.Cheers to enjoying the summer the Healthy way!

Beauty Spot: Battle of the Nudes

You have this wonderful tan maybe you have been to San Tropez, Ibiza or St. Barts, or the Hamptons.But you want to show off this gorgeous tan how do you do that??We found out the only real way to this is through nude lipstick because it contrasts and high lights your tan.So here's our battle...Sephora brand It's So Peachy
NYX                    Gold Glimmering lip gloss
Neutrogena       Ultimate NudeWe tried all three brands and this what we found:
Sephora brand lasted through out the day with a couple of touch ups but it didn't get cakey at the end of the corner of a person's lips The NYX brand immediately turned cakey at the corner of the lips and with this brand you have to use lip primer in order for it to really stay.Neutrogena we liked because you can go in the sun with this on because it has SPF built in, but for after the sun we had to switch to our Sephora It's Peachy brand.So next time you want to go NUDE just remember our guide for the perfect lips.Cheer…

It is men who hold the key to keeping traditional luxury fashion alive.Men will spend on great fitting suits, silk ties, because of the quality. In fact in certain professions the type of suit you wear determines whether you receive a promotion.Also, unlike women luxury fashion, menswear is extremely hard to duplicate because to obtain a great fit everything must be customized, which fast fashion can't replicate.Additionally, many men have higher monetary disposable income therefore they can afford to pay the price for several suits and other luxury clothing items.
