I've been wanting these for a long time!
The fashionado tee-shirt I am wearing is a prototype but very soon they will be available to everyone.
I'm happy, as in HAPPY, to announce that fashionado is going through some growing pains. And with growth comes changes or as I like to call it, evolvement. Some of the changes you may not even notice while others may impress you - and hopefully engage you too!
So stick with me. Good things are coming! OH and Happy Tuesday!!

Relaxed and comfortable can still be stylish. [And should be!] If your mind goes to t-shirts, shorts & flip-flops, then you better take note! While my outfit had a tailored fit, nothing felt tight or restraining. And most importantly, I felt good!
Banded collar, Neiman Marcus.
Cargos from Banana Republic. I gave them a sloppy roll up. *Style tip: pants were tapered for a successful, snug roll.
Calvin Klein. I'm wearing "no sock" socks btw.

Have FUN with fashion.
Moms always taught us "Less is More"... but I think that only applies to what we currently have on our bodies, NOT what we have in our closets! No woman can have too much jewelry, and in this case too many statement necklaces to choose from! Nordstrom has an amazing collection to select from this season, my personal favorite, the Cara line!
I will take them ALL!

I am obsessed with Zac Posen's Fall 2014 collection. It is stunning and breathtaking. The gowns, the capes, cocktail dresses and tweed suits represent incredible elegance and masterful skill. Zac Posen is in a league of his own when it comes to the New York fashion scene. And I respect that. And, at the moment, mesmerized by the exquisiteness and beauty of this collection. Impeccable construction paired with a creative vision epitomizes flawless sophistication.
