Celebrity style: Vanessa Simmons at the Pastry Salutes the Troops Event in NYC

May 29, 2010

 Vanessa Simmons is such a beautiful girl. I love her laid-back yet glamour girl style. She’s not afraid to take risks fashion wise and she knows how to make any look work for her. This olive green boyfriend shirt, shirred leggings and thigh-high boots play homage to the military inspired event Pastry Salutes The Troops she and sister Angela hosted yesterday at the Intrepid-Sea-Air-Space Museum in NYC.

CFB Polls: Where Do You Get Fashion Advice?

April 9, 2010
 Gabrielle Union can look fly with little effort.
When it comes to fashion some of us are more style savvy than others. If you were fortunate enough to have people in your family with great style, you may be ahead of the game. For me there was my mother and grandmother, whose seemingly effortless style inspired me to take fashion seriously. I began my love affair with fashion the moment my grandmother pointed me in the direction of the dress department of Bealls department store in Texas. “Pick the best you can find,” she would say. Immediately I would choose the most glamorous of dresses, with sheer organza fabric, rosette details, lace, or whatever was the fanciest, but not over the top. With shoes, my grandmother, a Ferragamo addict, always suggested I get the best shoes she could afford. The lesson I learned here: Cheap shoes can ruin an outfit.  I’ve invested more money on shoes and handbags that any other accessory in my wardrobe. Let’s face it, it’s easier to play off a cheap dress when you have expensive shoes. No one can see your dress’ label but they can see your shoes. So, The Chocolate Fashion Blog wants to know, where do you get your fashion advice.

Quirky fashion has never been my style but every once in a while there will be something that catches my eye. Like the Fashion East spring collection. It’s colorful, striking, and downright entertaining. The patterns are skillfully executed and add personality to the garments. The hues are bright and youthful, and definitely conversation pieces.
