Laying the foundation

ladies, lets talk about starting with a foundation for your outfit.  BRAS…..  If your like me bra shopping is the one form of shopping I’d avoid at all costs.  But its a fundamental foundation for wearing clothes, the right bra will make you look perky and 10 lbs slimmer.  Trust me, I’ve seen it on myself. So recently I realized that I needed some new bras, the ones I have about a year old and really non-supportive.  So I went to and took a look see, then I though, when was the last time I got a fitting?  Longer than I will admit here, so after yelp’ing I came across intimacy NYC and was like well lets give it a whirl.

I went to the location on Third Ave and met with Eloisa, who promptly assessed my needs and proceeded to find stlyes that were cute and supportive.  Now if you know this, good for if not here is a lesson,  a good bra will life your breasts up, support them lovingly and make you look 10  lbs lighter.  Eloisa pointed  out that I was wearing the wrong size, I was closer to a 40F.  Instead of measuring me she took a look and knew exactly the style and sizes I needed.  Eloisa says that the motto at Intimacy is to fit your body, so that means understanding different bras fit differently. After trying on about 5 styles it was time to narrow them down, but not to worry she made me a wish list.  So when I go back they can pull up the styles that I like and make my life easier.

While the store doesn’t look like there is much, they do have drawers of bras.  Not to mention swimwear, which if you are larger than a C you know its challenging to find one that has support.  So ladies take a moment go get fitted and see the difference in how you stand and even how your clothes drape.  I for one will definitely be back to shop.

Career advice from IMAN?

So leave it to Rachael Zoe to do a women in fashion series, which I love.  These are women that I admire and wish to emulate and try to incorporate their advice into my life.  The recent one is with Iman, and she was the first black super model and married to David Bowie, and I think she is a classic beauty.  In the Q&A she speaks that women should network, as we love to lift up other women.  As far as fashion goes she wants women to maintain their femininity and not hide in men’s clothes.  Want to know more?  Click the link to read the full Q&A.  What is your take away?!%20Ad%3A%20ZGallerie%20Sweeps&utm_content=B

Fashion Mavens

So I’ve been thinking about the women who drive my personal style and the I would love to emulate.  many women come to mind naturally first is my mother who always encouraged me to wear what I wanted (and I’m sure there were times that she regretted that lol), my aunt Theresa who is the embodiment of bohemian chic, my grandmother on my stepdads side who was casual chic, and im sure I can continue.  As I got older of course my tastes changed and I wen through various phases.  As a adult there are three women that I love their style and they drive me to want to dress better.  Iris Apfel who in her golden years is designing jewelry, doing various collaborations and has a bohemian uptown aesthetic.  Of course Daphne Guinness who takes extreme risks and is the embodiment of haute couture.  And last but not least a friend of mine Keda whose street style effortless blends hightops with thick gold chains to heels and snapbacks.  As a female we go through so many incarnations in style and all of these women have helped shaped my style sense over the years.  So to all the people that have shaped and continue to help my style evolve thanks!
