In the Mood

Fabric Headquarters

Fabulous striped cotton

Luscious Hot pinks & periwinkles

Today my girlfriend and I went to Mood Designer Fabric store in Los Angeles, on the hunt for printed cotton. I have to say I was in fabric heaven because the immense textures and vibrant colors had me in awe. Mood is the fabulous fabric palace that Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn have the contestants of Project Runway pick up yards and yards of exquisite material for their next challenge in New York City.

If you're ever in need for fabric, accessories, dress forms, etc.......Mood is your destination!!!

Fashion's Night Out 2010-Los Angeles

Fashion's Night Out is fast approaching. This year it will debut in other major cities alongside New York City; such as Beverly Hills, Washington D.C. and Dallas. I attended last year at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills, where the festivites included fashion shows and of course, shopping, shopping and more shopping. Who's attending this year???

Listed below, are some of this years' upcoming highlights.

Shopping and Event Highlights
Beverly Hills is definitely planning to host Fashion Night’s Out in true LA style, with celebrity, parties, drinks, food trucks, and more in the mix. You can ride a ferris wheel, go watch Samuel L. Jackson present his favorite red carpet looks at Giorgio Armani, and get a free manicure at Chanel. Seeking fashionably exercise? Les Khakis de Chanel and Lacoste will host a Wii tennis tournament. Many brands are hosting parties, such as Valentino, Emporio Armani, and Roberto Cavalli.

Sassy Shoe Saturdays #16

Mix n' MatchFashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Mix n' Match by Deanna Jackson featuring Fendi shoes

I love these raffia and suede peep toe pumps by Fendi. They exude a certain earthiness that would be adorable with a bohemian sundress paired with black leggings or they would be fabulous with skinny jeans and a army green jacket.

Paris Chic!

Channeling my inner-Carrie from Season 6 of Sex and the City!!

Saturday, June 12, 2010


"Mahogany" premiered on TVOne tonight. It was such a good movie, with a mix of high fashion and love. Diana Ross played aspiring fashion designer, Tracy Chambers who falls in love with politician, Brian Walker, played by Billy Dee Williams. Diana Ross was absolutely stunning in the film and her wardrobe was insane with 70's flare.

By far, my favorite line in the movie was when Billy Dee says, " Success is NOTHING, if you don't have someone you love to share it with!"

Rihanna: ELLE July 2010

Rihanna graces cover of July 2010 looking edgy in Balmain. She gushes on her favorite designers.

"On designers she admires: “It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”"

My Balmain/Chanel-esque Forever 21 Jacket

One happy shopper!

The Price is Right.


Classic Chanel

I took my daughter to Forever 21 last week to buy some summer pieces, and of course I perused the store to search for fun accessories for myself and stumbled across the chicest jacket that had Balmain (minus the shoulder pads) and Chanel written all over it; and get was marked down from $32.80 to $10.99.

My Dream Home Office

A beautiful home office is inspiration to get work done; your little refuge from the rest of the world; the home office above is simplicity and class at its finest and I love the grey and turquoise color palette.
I love my current home office space but.....I know, she needs some work. :-)

My vision board.

Where shall I hang Holly Golightly???

Animal Magnetism

I love animal print but in small doses, though; it adds pizzaz to any look and that's why I couldn't pass up these cute cheetah print, Nine West pumps (that I will be wearing to work tomorrow :-) which were on sale for $49.99!!
